This video is from a closer perspective. The story is that this was livestreamed by someone because, well, as you can see it's unlikely the cameraman survived.

Also there were two explosions after the fire broke out, a big one and then a fucking huge one like 30 seconds later.

But you see....micro$$oft!!

Yeah, I sometimes feel like I'm in 90s USENET with the outdated big bad Micro$oft bullshit. Some of the stuff people say Microsoft is going to do, people have been saying for 20+ years.

Since people started warning us about these imminent horrible atrocities by Microsoft, people have been born and gone on to have kids of their own. Meanwhile, I'm still in control of my PC. My pirated software (including Microsoft software!) and porn are fine. I've seen barely an advertisement outside of a few whitelisted sites in probably 15 years. I can compile and run whatever code I want, and the open source community for Windows has only gotten bigger.

If Microsoft is going to lock down my PC any day now, why is it taking them so long? I'm not getting any younger, and I'm not in the best of health. If I had kids I'd say maybe they or my grandkids might experience Microsoft making good on their evil plans. But I'm not sure about that.

Once you hand over the keys to your computer with Windows 10, the big M will see to it that add blockers never work again.

Ad blockers work fine with Windows 10 and Microsoft doesn't care about ads as they are not an advertisement firm.

I enjoyed True Detective season 2 a lot as well. I'm not sure if more than season 1, but, it was something I looked forward to each week. One of those shows where I get a little giddy as I press the play button.

But I knew from interviews before getting into it that each season of True Detective was going to be a significantly different theme. A Southern Gothic story and a Detective Noir story are not going to have a lot in common.

Some people seemed to think it was just going to be a rotating cast with the same style of story. But literally every season is a new show.

Comparing season 1 and season 2 might as well be comparing Seinfeld and Star Trek TNG. They both did what they set out to do remarkably well. You might wish they had set out to do something else, but that doesn't make what they did a piece of shit.

There's nothing this site hates more than seeing nerds who aren't them making money. Any time someone gets a pay day, you see comments in here about how they don't deserve it. Pro gamers, Notch, The Oculus Rift dude, etc.

Amazing level of hatred

Me: Interesting tech demo. So where's the rest of the game?
zecumbe: Being made? Keep hating kid, your tears are Skitties for us!
Me: "Keep hating kid"? Where in the world do you see hate in "Interesting tech demo. So where's the rest of the game"?


Why do you keep going to that sub dude? Trying to reason with the people there is like trying to reason with your cat.

For once they're sticking to the lore though and having Demon Hunters Night Elf and Blood Elf only.

Looks like they aren't skimping on the art though. Since they only have to do two races, it looks like each spec (Tank/DPS) has a different form and there's a lot of customization.

Can't imagine trying to do that for more races.

Ah shit I looked into that Haden Blackman dude who heads up this studio. Bunch of Star Wars crap is the only thing on his resume that I see. Hopefully he can deliver on this title.

yes "Registred" `.....not active accounts

You implied that WoW's active subscriber number was actually a registered account number. Here's the comparison...

100 million registered vs. FF14 4 million registered.
5.6 million active subs vs. FF14 no one knows, Squeenix doesn't release that info.

That Shadow of Mordor performance on Linux. Or rather, lack of performance. Holy shit. And it doesn't even run well enough on AMD to include AMD in the benchmarks.

I don't know man, FFXIV last I heard 2 months ago had about 4 million active subscribers, and that number only went up since the expansion. Maybe people are leaving WoW for FFXIV?

It wasn't 4 million active subscribers, it was 4 million "registered accounts."

Lowest number of subs since January 2006 apparently. But a couple odd spikes (and corresponding corrections in the other direction) aside at the beginning of Pandaria and WoD, it's been a steady decline since the beginning of the Cataclysm expansion.

It's still #1, but interest in MMOs is dying out. People aren't leaving WoW to play some other MMO, they are leaving MMOs entirely.

Guess the SJW fiasco of Mighty No. 9 didn't help them out any. Karma - treating your backers like dirt comes back to bite you.

Also doesn't help that Mighty No 9 isn't even out yet, and everything people have seen of it indicate that it'll probably be shit.

Haven't had any gaming related issues since upgrading. About like you'd expect considering Windows has just been getting iterative upgrades for years without changing any underlying fundamentals that would break games.

Honestly I've never had any gaming related issues upgrading Windows with the exception of going from DOS/Win3.11 to Win95, which I did early on and ended up breaking 90% of my games. Even the much maligned Vista didn't meaningfully impact what I could play or how well anything ran on my system.
