Regardless of whether or not one thinks game journalism needs to be "fixed," Mark Kern is certainly not who you want leading that call.

Well he's not pro-GG, he's come out and said that. He's anti-anti-GG, meaning he doesn't associate with it, doesn't want to, doesn't believe that everything GG is right about, but is against the anti-GGers who are for the status quo. He's also the first big name former dev to publicly attach his name. There are also several people at other major studios who've come out in support for GG, and a whole shit load of indie dev's who are tired of the yellow journalism and incestuous media relationship with a very small clique of indie devs, their friends, and fixed award shows.

On top of that there's also a number of people apparently who are tired of "circle-jerk" award shows like the shorty's and so on. Especially after the we're going to promote or are influenced by Lena "no girl is too young" Dunham, or Brianna "I'm going to make shit up" Wu.

SSD's are fine especially latest generation, however that website and article was a rag, one can say "using any data storage for every day use or work, may want to backup often" lol
Hell I've got two first gen SSD's both are 60GB and they're still screaming along. The first one got transplanted to my laptop about a year ago, and the other is used for games that take an assload longtime to load aka total war games and so on.

They work fine in servers too, as long as you run a good backup. They're great especially in database servers, the biggest problem we always had was waiting on the DB to serve info to the machines, which SSD's have fixed. Now we're starting to run into an actual bandwidth problem across all the machines.

Ooc, are Windows 7 & 8 region locked or is it possible to find a good deal using VPN?
Depends on where you buy it from some countries are region locked(like russia and china) but some aren't, though during the rush for Win8 keys a lot of people were buying it from india($8 USD) via vpn and it apparently works fine to this day.

If you buy from someone like nuuvum(gaming) it'll usually say if it works in region XYZ or not or if it's locked.

Hey, that's almost a good paraphrase of what the flappy headed nuts at the TDSB tried telling people. Until there was a massive backlash over it, funny enough that one of the people who implemented the curriculum was eventually arrested for pedophilia and copious amounts of kiddie porn. Maybe...it was nothing...maybe...

Apparently Nina Freeman when she was 12 or so did something like this, and thus, the game was born?
When I was 8(almost 27 years ago now), everyone in my class already know how this shit worked. It was all word of mouth or through our parents. Perhaps her parents had problems figuring out how to talk to her? Who knows. Hell I remember at the age of 7 my parents explaining it to me.

Maybe it's the difference between parents today, and parents who grew up in the 60's and lived through the 70's.

I suppose it could be used as an educational tool of sorts? I wonder if there is fisting?
Only if you live in Ontario(Cdn), and you go to a school in Toronto. They also teach sex with veggies as a core component.

Precisely the answer I was looking for. Now, how were those comments received? Were those individuals held up as standard-bearers for feminism, or publicly decried as extremists?
Going by the commenting, and various things by feminist groups. They were received very well. By the general public, not well at all. Thus the fundamental disconnect between reality and fiction.

Which specific feminist are you thinking of that proclaims it's okay to lie about rape?
Take your pick. Remember the UAV case? After it came out as fake, various feminists said it doesn't matter. It was okay to do this because "rape culture." Remember the case with Meg Lanker-Simons? Same deal. You can find the "even if it's fake, it's still true." Comments and stories on both of them.

Sark and company are going to have to do more than tone down their rhetoric. They are going to have to treat disagreement with them, even deep disagreement, as acceptable. The 'we will bury you' schtick didn't work - it's time to share the stage.

They don't want to. Just remember what Jennifer D'aww and Amy Henning said. People like Sarkeesian are the problem.

is it true that colorblind people have better nightvision?

the dress is yellowish-brown (i guess "gold".. it sure as hell isnt metallic so im not sure if i would say gold) and white that seems bluish because it is reflecting light from an artificial source of some kind (flash, tv, etc.)

One of my uncles is red/green colour blind. He had even better night vision then I did when I was a kid, though since he had his double bypass his eyesight has gone for the worse. My great uncle has monochromacy(only sees in shades of grey/white/black etc) and has shit night vision now, but apparently was amazing when he was younger and when he was in the military. Take it as you want though, he's always had to wear a special set of glasses to remove the glare/brightness issues though in the daylight/bright rooms/etc.

Anyway, I see white-gold.

HorrorScope wrote on Feb 27, 2015, 12:46:

Remember this when the game Hatred is brought up again. It's all pretend, horror, gruesome, all things movies and lyrics have done for years. I agree. Not saying you have to like anything in particular or not, but we need to respect that this is all make believe. People like dabbling in darker fantasies.

The world will not be a perfect place, it just wasn't meant to be.

But one line with these people being discussed that I repeat. "You give them a name and you give them power", if I have to spell it out to some, that means ignore them and they are as weak as any persons opinion here.

I'm commenting to members here, not the sources of the news.

FYI Hatred keys came out today for those that ordered it.

Anyway, ignoring people like this doesn't work. Not a single bit, bringing their cancer to light is the best way to get rid of them. And it seems to be working, it worked in the past with Jack Thompson it's working with the new moral authoritarian named Anita Sarkeesian. The number of people calling her out, on her bullshit increases as such she loses face by not counting them. Her videos are closed echo boxes, allow no dissenting opinions, no comments. Her lectures are pre-screened questions, and no dissenting views. The only question is how long is it going to take before this latest person claiming that there's a moral panic goes into the dustbin of history like Tipper Gore and friends, or the scaremongers who were against D&D.

This shouldn't be a partisan issue. For those that work for an ISP like I do you'd understand that this is a bad idea. Expect packet-loss and latency in the short term with higher ISP prices for the long run.

This is probably why Verizon stopped expanding their FIOS service too.
Strange. We have net neutrality here in Canada and "shit hasn't hit the fan." Maybe you guys can get that several billion dollars back from those companies who were supposed to expand rural broadband, and it never happened.

Oh and to anyone trying the "but they're not trying to take your games away..." Really?

Shineyguy wrote on Feb 25, 2015, 11:27:
To be fair, their statement about it was that they couldn't support such setups as that so they disabled it in their drivers.

From a support standpoint, I can completely agree with what they did. I would not want to have to try to support a competing vendors software and it's interaction with my own.

That's why it worked perfectly fine right? If it works fine, and people don't have a problem. And then they go out of their way to disable it, all that says is they threw a hissy fit. All they have to do in a support environment is say "we don't support that configuration and will offer no support on it." Problem solved.

I wasn't aware DirectX ever disabled it, but nVidia drivers did after a while, and there was someone working on creating a fix for each new version that came out to re-enable the feature, so I ran those drivers for a year or so.

DirectX doesn't disable it, it was nvidia via their drivers that did. Which is pretty typical of nvidia at times, they simply threw a hissy fit and decided to take their ball and run away.

As for AMD not competing? They seem to be doing just fine.

What the hell is this BS? That guy was never a figurehead anymore than I am. That would be like claiming Blue is a member of the inner circle of the RNC, or Cutter is the secret man behind Obama. What a piece of shit article.

Editorial standards? Nope. Yellow journalism? Yep.

Haha well since you brought it up...if Nvidia was smart they would've pulled a Ubisoft and offered a free game but said "in order to accept this title you must not sue us" in legalese.
FYI, doing the "you can't sue us" bit is illegal pretty much everywhere outside of the US. Since you can't be forced or coerced into waiving legal rights like that.

jdreyer wrote on Feb 23, 2015, 16:56:

Arguments against AMD:

1. No PhysX in hardware.

2. The heat.

That's alright, physx is pretty much useless. And if you live anywhere where it gets cold in the winter you'll be happy for the extra warmth. Hell, with 3 PC's upstairs I can turn off all the vents and keep it warm. Which is nice since fuel oil is $0.942/L right now.

Do you not understand Leigh isn't complaining about the way"gamers" were shown on svu?

And if burgers and fries was about ethics, why was it burgers and fries when only one guy was a journalist and he barely mentioned her insignificant free game?

No, they went after the sex with five guys, not the journalism part.

Right, she's complaining that everyone including them are being shown as such in SVU.

Oh but it wasn't just one instance now was it? It was just that "one instance" that finally broke the camels back.

No, they went after the journalism. Or did you miss the part where the half dozen or so people were caught involved with/living with/banging the people they were writing about.

Really? I feel you're oblivious about Gamergate. Like many, you ignore that horrible treatment and focus on things that are meaningless (indie games, where no one has any power) and ignore the important things (AAA devs and publishers, the only people involved in any of this with any power) and somehow focus your efforts on whining about SJWs, which has nothing to do with journalism or ethics.
You mean the cliques, favors for favors, the inside articles with no disclosure, the rigged voting at the indie game conferences have nothing to do with ethics? Good thing you buried your head in the sand over it. Those sjw's are the ones involved in all of that, and in some cases the ones from AAA studios are also involved as seen with IGN and Ubisoft, incase you missed the mass-deleting of all of the conflict-of-interest articles.

Quboid wrote on Feb 13, 2015, 10:01:
Are these articles the same two articles that MA posted? The ones which don't say what you're claiming?
Except the articles are exactly saying and whining about the fact that gamers and their media are being portrayed that way.

Leigh is laughing at you. And her "hissy fit" was over shit head gamers obsessing over a woman's sex life with five guys.

Fuck anyone who said "burgers and fries." Games are better without assholes like that.

Actually, she hasn't realized that she's sleeping in the bed she created. Much like Kotaku and Polygon didn't until they both got dragged in and smeared by their own narrative. Then again, that's the "privileged" person who goes on globe-trotting trips to insult and be racist in other peoples countries.

Oh it wasn't the sex life people cared about, you should know that by now Beamer. It's the favors, collusion, and pro-quid-pro coverage. You know, like just what happened with IGN and Ubisoft(you can thank gamergate for bringing that one to light too). See, what you continue to fail to grasp is that instance was the trigger that had been boiling for nearly 20 years and people simply had enough. I can dig up dozens of articles from 2000-2010 calling out the same shit.

And don't worry if the joke flies over your head, but I'm sure if the sexes were reversed you'd be laughing.
