AMD was always good at putting lipstick on a pig.

At least AMD isn't requiring your email address for driver updates.

Anyway, the drivers seem to be rock solid. And I haven't run across any problems, some problems that I had with older drivers are gone especially in games over 12 years old.

If nothing else, grab New Vegas for cheap - it's a fantastic game as well.


Better yet, get FO3 and FO:NV and install TTW(tale of two wastelands) and enjoy yourself.

If you aren't playing FO4, you are missing out.


At $80cdn, a lot of people will say NOPE.

I'm fairly certain that, if we did a poll of BluesNews posters, who are admittedly a very older segment of gamer, you'd find more people have never heard of him than people who think he's important.

If you've been on the internet longer than 3 years, and frequented any of the following: /., reddit, digg, 4chan, 7chan, 2ch, 2chan, 420chan, somethingawful, newsvine, topix, linkmeme, icanhascheezburger, and probably a dozen other sites you likely know who boogie is.

So, he's a fraction as popular as Pewdipie?

If that's the only thing you're basing off of, it sure explains why reality tv is popular.

Did you even read the article? The reason I ask is because the article asserts that many in the developer industry feel that the gaming 'press' is supposed to be an extended arm of their marketing departments. From what you've written here you seem to share this opinion.

That I did, most of it is rambling nonsense about how hurt their feelings are that Ubisoft and Bethesda is no longer giving them the preferential treatment that they want. I've yet to see where developers believe that the gaming press is supposed to be a extension of them either in the article, or in general.

Beamer wrote on Nov 21, 2015, 14:32:

Only GamerGaters seem to think a Boogie is a thing, let alone it's important if a Boogie is "going after" something.

He seems like a less popular Pewdiepie - a guy who makes his living on YouTube. Who cares what he's doing?
I think you mean, people who like self-depreciating humor think Boogie is a thing. Let alone that it's important if he's calling out the BS on something.

As for Pewdiepie, if you favor a guy who screams like a 10 year old well, I guess there's your answer. I realize you're getting behind on the times, but the face of game reviews is shifting from websites to youtube just like how they shifted from magazines to websites.

This is NOT blacklisting? I am confused ...

No, it's not. Kotaku, ubisoft, and bethesda all had a working relationship at one time. Kotaku has spent the last 5 years pissing in everyone's cereal and telling them it's milk. It's the company refusing to do business with them because they've shown that they're untrustworthy of information that they've passed to them before in confidence, and in this case because they've attacked not only a companies bottom line, but attacked other developers. Not to forget that kotaku has been attacking both Ubisoft and Bethesda for the last year because they don't pander to certain crowds, that means both companies are sexist, homophobic, racist, and so on as well. Or if you prefer "problematic."

To make it clear, if it was a blacklist there would be more than two companies wouldn't there? Unless of course you're saying that this is akin to the GameJournoPros mailing list which has 200+ people deciding which articles to write, how and so on.


How do they ruin lives? And leaking "things" is one of the "things" the press should do.
You miss the stuff that kotaku ran with Brad Wardall? You know where they said he assaulted an employee, then then the lawsuit against him was dismissed with prejudice. How about when one of their writers tried to get someone fired because they didn't like what they had to say. Or when they attacked Denis Dyack based on 'anonymous' information, that proved to be false. Yep, not ruining lives at all.

So if a company leaks something that's meant to be a teaser. And that has a negative impact on the developer either in lost time, money, or fanbase that's okay too? Gawker and co., are below tabloid entertainment magazines, and have proven in the past that they're willing to do anything for ad-revenue.

Wonder why gawker just fired a bunch of people and is trying to re-brand itself as a political site? Not forgetting that they tried that before.

Sometimes i wonder ... what do people on BluesNews NOT hate? Not that i have a special love for Kotaku, but blacklisting a media outlet is NOT a good thing. There is nothing to cheer about.

Except of course they're not being blacklisted. The companies in question are simply refusing to release any information to them. Nothing is stopping Kotaku from going out and buying the games to review themselves. On top of that, they've made themselves enough enemies by leaking things and trying to ruin other peoples lives that you'll find that no-fucks-given is pretty stanard.

Someone needs to put them on prozac quick. Sounds like they're feeling suicidal.

Considering the amount of bad blood that kotaku has generated? It's sure not the dev's that have anything to worry about. Boogie going after kotaku All that's needed now is TB.

Fuck kotaku, especially their click-bait garbage. Gawker is already shutting down a bunch of stuff and going for political clickbait, they can't die soon enough. Though I do like their whining that they're blacklisted, especially after Gawker decided to pull the "if you don't follow and so what we say, we'll blacklist you."

edit: Looks like developers from all over the place are coming out and saying "lulz, too bad for you kotaku." Couldn't happen to a nicer group of assholes.

So far, developers from WoW, R*, Ubisoft, are blasting them. Former devs from Irrational, WoW and Bioware are as well.

Only 6-7mo late, I'm really hoping that they've fixed some of the bugs from the last two releases. Especially the sudden FPS drops, but I've been waiting for this. And FXIII-2 was an amazing game.

Agreed. Police forces everywhere need to be reigned in and leashed. In Canada they're virtual rogue agencies. They can pretty much do whatever they like without any fear of repercussion and they cost a fortune to boot. A lot of people aren't happy with the state of policing in this country and haven't been for a long time.

Yep, they're so rogue that every province has a investigative unit, and a police oversight board which you can apply to be a member of for 5 years.

Man, I loved me some SC2 back in the day. My friends and I would play it every day at lunch. Think I might go download the SC2-open source version and play it.

JUFFO-WUP WILL GIVE YOU PEACE, LET US SPREAD TENDRILS THROUGH YOUR BRAIN ORGAN.

Back to GMG, it makes sense that not all publishers would want to sign contracts with them. GMG routinely offers 20-30% off pre-orders (or any game, really) and publishers generally don't like it when such discounts are offered so early.

Pretty much. That entire thread is full of idiots, mods included who don't know how the supply chains work. GMG can simply order keys through a 2nd tier party at a heavily discounted price for x units(usually in quantities of 5k-10k+). That doesn't make any of the keys grey market, illegal, or anything else. They're bypassing the publisher, and still making a profit because they're leveraging their buying power with a upstream distributor(said distributor is also leveraging against the publisher by buying 30k+ at a low price ant the publisher is fine with it) and the publisher is throwing a fit because they're buying large numbers of keys in bulk, making a large profit and undercutting them on steam at the same time.

She's still pretending to be a gamer, otherwise she'd have no career with her lack of talent. Good thing her 15 minutes are over.

Well she's having as much success as Wil Wheaton did when he threw his hissyfit over at /. and the user base went NOPE FUCK YOU.

There's also some free missions (3?) that bridge the gap between the two, I believe - not tried them myself.


There is 3 prologue missions between HoTS and LotV. There's also 3 epilogue post-LotV, the LotV ending is rather meh, but the last 3 missions post ending are pretty damn good. So far I've enjoyed the campaign quite a bit. So LotV gives you a total 25 missions, unless of course I've missed a secret mission in there somewhere which is possible.

it won't surprise me in the slightest if extreme right-wing political groups take advantage of people's anger and fear.

Well considering the politics of europe these days, anything that isn't left, is far-right or extreme right-wing. The only reason why they're gaining traction is because the governments are not listening to the people, and when people have said enough their government is simply going: "There's a point where we should have stopped, but let's keep going and see what happens."

TL;DR you clearly have "issues" with Bethesda's Fallout series. Instead of bitching about the "good old days" (it's NEVER coming back) find another game you can enjoy. I hear the crowdfunded Wasteland 2 is quite good; or perhaps Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void is more your thing.

WoW will last forever, all hail the MMO king.

This just in from our special reporter on the scene: WoW subs dropping, sure it took 8 years, but it looks like only WoW can kill WoW.

Really what'll happen is they'll kill the FO universe just like Blizzard killed WoW. And it'll eventually slide into obscurity, it might take a few more titles but people play the games mainly for the exploration and RPG options.
