What makes the vive better than rift?

It'll likely be half the cost.

I've thrown the DK2 on like 30+ people. Never seen anyone get sick. That includes old folks too.

I've tried the DK1 and DK2 and gotten violently ill with a skull splitting migraine each time. It only takes 5 minutes or so before I start feeling nausea from it. I never had a real problem with VR headsets back in the mid and late 90's but that was before I had a head injury, so that's likely the cause.

Shouldn't have installed ctOS

My question is, why are these things connected to the net instead of being air-gaped.

Not sure where that's coming from. ...


I'm pretty confident that Psychonauts 2 will be delivered. It may not live up to the hype but it'll be delivered and will most likely be a solid follow-up.

How's df-9 doing these days? This isn't the first time, or even the 3rd time that DF has pulled the "we need more moniez guys" bit.

I had stopped using newegg after they refused to take a return from me. I had switched to tigerdirect which was much more customer service friendly.

Well, there goes that idea.

If you live in Canada use Canadacomputers. Tigerdirect though is going to be in for a rude awakening they operate stores and have an online presence here in Canada, and failing to disclose that they refuse returns in a clear manner is going to land them in regulatory hot water. But it sounds like Tigerdirect doesn't want customers anymore, so that makes it easy when I go looking for computer parts.

No one wants to be Edmonton. That's like serving a sentence.

Well Edmonton is basically the opposite of Toronto or Montreal. There's 'hip' areas, and overpriced areas in all three cities, the nice thing about Edmonton is it generally doesn't have the asshole factor of TO or Montreal. For someone like me, who grew up in small towns Edmonton has always been great when I lived out in western canada. I detest Toronto and Montreal, I lived in Toronto(about a block off the Danforth subway station) back ~10 years ago with my ex for a while. Hated every minute of it, hated the traffic, people, and the nightlife to boot.

Even back then rent was insane, we were paying $1200/mo for a basement apt. Fuck that right in the neck.

Aren't you making the author's, and my, argument here? For the overwhelming majority of the world, their personal computing needs are sufficiently met by the average smart phone. For the overwhelming majority of office workers who use a computer in their work, a laptop built within the last 5-7 years will sufficiently meet the hardware requirements of their computing needs. The only people who have the desperate need for advanced hardware that you claim is so universal are in fact the edge cases: people like YOU or people like ME. For everyone else? Their phone and the MacBook or Dell laptop they got in college 6 or 7 years ago is "good enough".

Games have always been the driving factor behind the increase in PC sales. Whether it be videocards or CPU's, and their ability to do more. It'll swing back, and it's already starting too as you see more companies shift away from console only releases or starting to bring back PC only releases. And with Vulcan coming out soon, it'll be even easier.

You're right that if you're just browsing the internet, watching cat videos and doing word processing a laptop made in the last 5 years is more than sufficient. But smartphones won't replace PC's for crafting documents of any kind.

Then again, having read that article and read articles nearly identical to it for the last 20 years all claiming that PCs are failing, that the end is nigh, and they're all doomed...it hasn't happened yet. But hardware itself is pretty much at a standstill compared to the late 90's and early 00's, when we saw speeds jump from 300Mhz to 1.5Ghz in the span of a year and change. There's no pressing need for high-end devices because the software isn't there to demand it, don't forget either that we're at the edge of quantum computing as well. While I doubt they'll become the big thing at home, I expect optical CPUs to be the consumer grade level in the next 10-15 years. Not forgetting moores law either.

Got a 500 gig for $85 was it during Thanks G. That gives you plenty of room to move games in and out of it, that one currently plays and can benefit from the SSD speed.

Yeah I'm completely surprised at how fast the cost on SSD's have fallen and their size has increased. Two years ago I picked up a 120GB job for $79, this year if I shop around I can get 500GB easily enough.

Of course not, because most are too eager to jump onto the Microsoft-bashing-bandwagon!

MS does have it's issues, and no doubt has had its share of bonehead moves, but so does, Google, Apple, etc.; however, everyone is always so quick to bash MS at every turn, even if they do something truly awesome, someone will dissect it to find any irrelevant negative critique they can just because it is MS.


It's not even that, they want to be the first one out of the gate because it generates them clicks and page views. It doesn't matter if it's true or false, if it generates clicks it's all good.

If winamp could launch a low bloat 3.3MB audio player with the option of a pro version like they used to, they could probably take back the market. It's insane when just a audio player is like 30MB, you can tell there's a lot of bloat there. Hell one of the reasons why VLC and WindowsMediaplayer Classic are so popular is because they're so lightweight and only do what they say they do.

Then again, why isn't the user's MAC address data automatically synchronized between the authentication and usage databases? Is Comcast saying that someone is actually manually entering this data in when a customer is onboarded?

Easy, because in many cases they're only looking at the modems mac address. And because of so many problems with mac cloning existing on cable modems, it's not a problem until a customer complains. And even then it's the customers problem. One of the reasons why here in Canada, people continue to want Industry Canada to certify data usage software for measurements. Hasn't happened yet, and likely won't since data caps are now starting to go away again.

The FO4 compass flicker has been fixed, but now there is minor flicker while in power armor. FPS are also a lot better especially at the institute first place where I saw FPS drops.

For a while there, bots had ruined battlegrounds. Some matches, more than half your team would be bots. That made the game very difficult to enjoy and was one of my reasons for unsubbing back then.

One of the things I enjoyed to no end back in vanilla was either training bots to get smushed by elites or dragging them into the opposing factions cities where they spent hours being corpse ganked, because on respawn the bot's AI would take the shortest path back to their farming location which was usually through a city/outpost/etc..

Well I can hold out hope, but I get the feeling it'll be dumbed down for today's idiot generation of console players.
Why should they do this? This is not a project from an AAA publisher, who has to sell millions of copies just to break even.

To reach a large target audience, because they believe that the games original mechanics are dated and so on. I hope I'm wrong, I really do. But look at the Xcom remake for example.
