My example was an extreme to illustrate the point. A lot of these shows are going to have viewers from both demographics, especially couples.

That's why the headline reads, "Men Are Skewing The Online Reviews of TV Shows Aimed at Women" instead of "Sabotaging". And it clearly points out that a 7.3 is still a relatively high score instead of a poor one.

Back to Serious-World: Yeah it would be a lot better if the polling was 50/50, and zero troll posts, but everyone knows it's not a perfect rating system.

My problem with articles like these is they so easily push everyone's buttons and know it (just like that one youtube poster), while there's real issues across the globe getting glossed over by all this non-issue bullshit.

If all of this was race orientated pretty much everyone would be shooting it down.

I hated the expendables, but that isn't really relevant.

For the record I haven't seen any of them (do plan to someday).

I think they're trying to push the notion that if you own an Xbox you should really get Windows 10, and if you own Windows 10, life would be great if you also had an Xbox. I've been noticing that subtle(?) slant from them since the Win10 launch.

A feminist acquaintance of mine went and saw The Expendables with her husband and hated it. If she were to give it a rating on imdb, I'm pretty sure it would have been somewhere in the 1 to 3 ballpark.

I'm totally ok with that in terms of how it relates to this system.

Average is 5.0. That's what anyone going into a 1 - 10 rating system is going to consider to be the rating for average. Most of my favorite movies, which I consider to be quite good, fall within 5.5 - 7.5. Women rated a show which was geared more towards their gender higher than men, but both gave it a higher than average rating (on average).

Yeah.

They've stated the reason they haven't done PS:T is due to how heavily modified the engine was for that game. Same for Icewind II

AMD, on the other hand, has fairly shitty utilization (i.e. if AMD were capable of writing a proper DX11 driver, they could have probably beaten nVidia in more cases) so AMD benefits a lot from a technology that uses these idle capacities (that would/should not be idle in the first place if AMD had proper DX11 drivers).

This is correct; AMD has more CPU overhead with their DX11 drivers. They have a larger delta between their DX11 and DX12 performance which sort of artificially gives them more "gain" in DX12 titles.

They still did a lot right on the hardware level for DX12 and ASYNC, but the DX11 overhead is a factor.

All the unity games I have do a borderless full screen. That's why there's no in game brightness setting for the new Homeworld games. It's also why you can alt-tab so quickly in and out of the game.

Edit-OK, nm.. looks like they patched a method in. Only works in DX9 mode though.

Unity can't do exclusive full screen, correct? Which means all Unity games are stuck at desktop gamma settings. Not the best limitation for this particular game, though the early footage looked pretty good otherwise.

I was wondering that. "Kites"? Is that trying to be racist and failing? I don't even know what to say there
