Yeah... do you have any idea how the internet works?

Google doesn't have anything to "search" without KAT existing first.

Wanna try that again? I suggest using the "torrent" or "magnet" option that works via boolean searches. Those links are generated without those other sites existing. You're welcome to what people figured out way back when the internet is new.

I'm pretty sure you don't understand how torrent trackers work. :p
Or how Google works either...

Or how the word "exactly" works.

Neither host content. Both take down DMCA requests. Both honor DHT searches. Both allow searching and indexing of content. Yep, looks to be exactly the same.

They got kickass, dammit! If it's true one of their servers was running in the US, they kind of walked into that one...

I'm sure they're going to go after google any day now right? After all it does exactly the same thing that KAT did.

Well since patch 1.7 + Veteran difficulty + Tundra + Orbit the answer is mostly yes... it isn't easy mode anymore, it's actually a pretty good challenge which is only offset by the Orbit research which requires a ton of input to really push it... ...

Sounds like it'll be worth picking up when the entire thing goes on sale in 6mo-1year from now. I picked up 2070 along with all the DLC for $9 last year or the year before and can't complain on the price point or time I've put in.

I don't think an old Hindu cleric counts as a "liberal".

He's the religious right. Can't really fault them from saying liberal through, the religious right for all intents and purposes has been pretty quiet for the last 20 years. While liberals and regressive leftists have been screaming in more increasing pitches about how things need to be banned to stop from offending someones sensibilities.

What the fuck is wrong with you two that you think that venture capital committees threw billions at this company because they have a woman in charge?

Because that's exactly what happened. What? You couldn't find that with a 20 second google search. Take a look at the news media, touting the key thing that she got funding was because she was female, read the VC magazines which said the same thing. Oh yeah, they touted her as the next female Steve Jobs and pushed very hard, and the money went from a trickle to a flood. Guess blind ignorance is lovely sometimes right?

Oh, and tainted blood transfusions? People went to prison for that at least here in Canada 8 years to be exact. But you also seem to be forgetting that there's a negligence difference in most of your examples. Don't forget either on the levels of fraud committed here, and the very between the lines reading that they knew that their product didn't work. I know, difficult thing to grasp right. Then again you guys in the US have far more problems with your drug industry and how it's regulated then other parts of the world.

and even with Vulcan (How many games do you think are going to use Vulcan compared to DirectX?) support that doesnt seem to be happening any time soon.

Quite a few apparently. If anything vulcan has done the job of completely surpassing OGL, and has done a great job of showing that it's the better choice vs dx12 especially with the BS that MS has pulled over the last year with the "our way or the highway" mentality with developers. You're likely going to start seeing a shift towards vulcan over the next year, especially since it's so easy to use it to make the games cross platform.

If nvidia hadn't pulled the "TDR's are your problem" BS back in the 500 series days, or the hard lock problem that caused 400-600 series cards to freeze and in some cases require a system wipe to get the OS back into a workable state. I'd still likely be using their cards, man I loved my evga cards. The TDR problem was directly related to the drivers, and that went on for well over a year. And right up until they started paying to have customer rigs shipped to california and they discovered that it was indeed their drivers, and the drivers throttling the core voltage so low that it caused the gpu to go into a looping crash.

But I'm due for a new card next year since I figure my 7950 will be due for a replacement, so maybe we'll see where this is all by then.

A) Why isn't she going to jail? B) Why is that company allowed to remain in business at all? .

You have to ask? The same reason if she had been a he, and he would likely be looking at 20 years in prison. Don't forget that it was because she was female that people threw money at her in the first place and was able to draw in so much VC to get off the ground.

There's a fundamental fuck-up going on right now where people are judging a persons sex/race for the reasons that they should be getting preferential treatment.

Is it illegal for the schezwan place to tell me that their General Tao Chicken is rated "5 stars", or that the Chow Mein is a "House special"?

Depends, are those people being paid to write such by the company it's employed by? And there we've hit the basic problem of writing for/about the company who's either selling the products for someone else. To top it off now you've got a conflict of interest and a severe ethical breach. In some cases that's full on illegal(see various consumer protection laws), in other cases it would be a severe ethical breach of truth in advertising laws in turn making it either a regulation breach(meaning heavy fines or restrictions) or in the very worst case illegal if the organization refers the matter to the crown/DA/etc for prosecution.

Think the smallest HDD size they still manufacture is either 150GB or 250GB both in single platter configurations. Which of course is funny, because I sadly remember when I got my first 250MB HDD(first new desktop our family got had a quantum 40MB HDD in it though) and thought I'd never fill it, then 1TB a few years later.

You can find remanufactured drives that are 100GB and less, but they're expensive. Generally running the price of what you'd pay for 1TB or more e.g. $40-125, and if you really need a drive that's locked due to particular reasons you're like at EOL on the hardware anyway.

I had a bunch of stuff in my cart, got pulled away before I could purchase. Finally had free time on July 4... but the sale was over! Who ends a sale on July freakin' 3???

There's a madness behind that. It makes you think, well it'll be over before the holiday...so I'd better buy it now, so I can play it then. Not saying it was a smart move, but that'd be my guess as to why they did it.

I spent 4$ ... aka.. nothing really.... without the daily sales there was also a distinct lack of proper guidance to a decent game I might not have yet heard of...

$1.56 myself, and that was to pick up the ghostbusters game(ghostbusters 3). I didn't see anything I wanted that I already didn't have or haven't gotten around to playing yet.

should I start w2 over or just go for W3 ? (I tend to have game-ADD when it comes to single player games so I'm thinking just skip straight to W3 but hoping I dont miss out on too much story...

W3 has a simulate choice and dialog choice options(after you complete white orchard) since events from the first two games carry over to the 3rd. You could skip the 2nd game, but those choices might not make any sense if you didn't complete the story itself.

Yeah, no point in waiting, just play it. Just a brilliant game and perfect finish with Blood and Wine. I'm a sad panda that's all there is.

Blood and wine was damned amazing and you could count it as a completely separate game. But both of those expansions or DLC that people want to call them? It's been a long time since I was that impressed.

Nah. Finish your play through it's likely 5-9mo out at this point, that's how long it usually takes for it to be released after they give a tip on the directors cut/enhanced ed. etc.



Yep called it. Someone in another thread said that they wouldn't be releasing a "super deluxe version" at all because the game was already done and there was no more to add. Fuckin' CDPR showing the industry that even if you do it right, there's room for improvement.
