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..

Something I am liking is AMD is now releasing a driver-only version of their drivers which weighs in at 12MB.

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.

no mouse control sounds like a "failed" port to me
A failed port would mean, no graphic options, no v/o options, no remapping of keys. And it would crash every 5 minutes.

There's a bit of a contradiction if you are saying "decent port" and "no mouse control" in the same breath...

There's no contradiction, if you take the sum of everything else it's decent. You add mouse control it becomes good, you remove mouse control and it goes back to being decent. Not rocket surgery.

Cord cut back in 2007 and haven't missed anything... except commercials.

Well they're doing something fucked up if my mom is looking to cancel cable, and she loves her TV. She is in her mid-60's now, and finds that she really only watches TCM and maybe a little Home & Garden or whatever the hell they call themselves now. I haven't had cable at home since 2002, the last time I watched TV was when I was in the US back ~3 years ago and all it was, was shit, shit, shit and more shit.

Lightning returns this time is a decent port. The only problem? Unlike the previous two ports, this time you have no mouse control for looking around. Hopefully they'll patch that in soon like they did with Type-0HD.

Are there specific examples of her treating criticism as abuse?
Watch her UN speech, she specifically states that people using criticism against her is abuse. That's why she's become a walking lulz factory like Jack Thompson.

It's a guide to minimizing the impact of online abuse, not a guide to giving in to it. Being constantly harassed is why she's experienced.

According to Sarkeesian the chucklefuck, criticism is abuse.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Patch Breaks Mod Support

Drayth wrote on Dec 7, 2015, 15:51:
Any great Skyrim mods eventually had access to the editor or where made after it's release, minus UI mods, or any that don't need the editor to function fine in the first place.

All I was saying was, Until Fallout's editor is out people are basically hacking their mods into the game. Thus, it's not surprising to see mods being *easily* broken by a patch.

Really, the mods are being made with FNVedit, which has an extremely lightweight version of the toolkit built in. The differences between FO3/NV or Skyrim and FO4 are trivial. There's a minor header difference and that's it. So if something has broken mods like this even if you get it to load, it would mean that loading mods as they are, wasn't supported until this patch. But it'll be easy enough to fix in the near future.

AMD cards TDR more... believe me, i used to work for AMD (crappy company)

Back when it was ATI there was a lot of problems, I remember them very well. With the number of people I know that have AMD cards now, seeing one or two TDR's in a 3 month period is more common than anything.
