I've been saying for a while now the burden is on law enforcement here. They either have to develop a way to catch these guys, or they have to adjust how they handle emergency calls that raise red flags about their credibility.

If an incident is so serious it requires a heavily armed SWAT team, it probably isn't going to be reported by a single isolated call coming from a suspicious number, or coming over a deaf assistance line.

I really hope these guys can get enough success with the remake to make System Shock 3.

Honestly, the dude has started ripping on The Civil War teaser trailer as some form of 'masculinity violence brigade' bullshit. I'm not sure I could facepalm with enough force to show the level of total disbelief I have.

McIntosh is an insecure crybaby who needs the approval of fat chicks with bad dye jobs to survive his day. The more outraged he is, the more points he gets. Literally anything popular, he attacks it, because it scores him points and it's a safe target.

That's all SJW culture is: A giant, insincere virtue signaling circlejerk. They get more points with their buddies the more offended they get.

Nevermind the real problems we have in this country, those are too complicated. They spend all their time trying to "solve" mundane shit like violent media.

People like this can have incredible amount of negative impact on your life. Unfortunately laws haven't caught up to this concept yet. Crime related to computers isn't considered "real" even if it has severe real world consequences.

Yeah the cheaters chased me out of GTA Online and Rockstar either doesn't give a shit, or has no clue how to fix the issues. I wish they'd create some single player content since their multiplayer is so awful.

I've asked this a lot lately...where did the PC gamers that used to be on here go? I see the same names but they all sound like whiny old spinsters. Remember when every YEAR, a graphics card came out that was two to three times as powerful as the one before? Were you buying video cards THEN? Cuz you were upgrading every year. And here you guys are, crying about needing a 3 year old card as a minimum for a brand new game.

I ask myself the same thing. I haven't upgraded my admittedly very high end rig in 2 and a half years and everything still runs just fine. But I don't foresee myself building anything new for another year and a half or more. I used to upgrade my rig every 2 years, now you can get away with 3-4 years. The frequency with which you need to upgrade your hardware has slowed considerably.

The minimum spec graphics card is a three year old mid range card. The GTX 670 is roughly the equivalent of a modern GTX 960 which is around $150.

Combined with the fact that "minimum spec" these days gets you a lot further than "Well it technically runs" which is what min spec used to mean, I find it hard to complain about these specs.

Console commands are pretty much a requirement to make a decent looking settlement. Gotta tinker with collision and use precision positioning commands etc.

Also pretty essential for advancing quests that have become broken as is usual for Bethesda.

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.

Beamer is just flailing at this point. He doesn't even make any sense. He says no one cares what the guy thinks, people point out that apparently a lot of people do. He has no counter for that so he just sputters out some retarded shit like "He has less subs than Pewdiepie" as if being the most viewed person on YouTube is the benchmark for relevance in gaming. Zero logical reasoning there. He just doesn't want to admit that he was wrong about Boogie being a nobody who no one listens to.

Any gaming YouTuber with over 2 million subs has a lot of power and can very much influence conversations in the gaming community. Developers are more concerned with what those types of YouTubers are saying about their games than what sites like Kotaku are saying, by far. YouTube drives gaming purchases.

Beamer seems really out of touch. Gamers care what these YouTubers think, and so do developers.

Apparently around 3 million people. That's more people than care what Kotaku is doing these days.

YouTube is the only place that matters to most gamers these days as far as gaming news and opinion, and he's one of the more popular gaming personalities on there.

Get with the times dude.

The Human eye cant even go beyond that or even keep up. Its pointless and senseless.

Wrong. I wish people would stop parroting this tired old cliche. The human eye doesn't have a frame rate limit because it doesn't see in frames. The eye's responsiveness to changes in light depend on a lot of factors. It's an organic instrument that has persistence and momentum. For example, if you're looking at a bunch of black frames at 1000 FPS in a dark room and someone starts to mix white frames in there occasionally, you'd be able to discern those frames even if they were displayed for 1/1000th of a second or even less.

What's happening on screen, the color palette, contrast, etc, are all going to have an effect on how high you're going to be able to crank the framerate and still notice improvement. There is no magic number. 60hz has no biological significance and wasn't chosen because of the human eye. It's semi-arbitrary shit that comes from old ass NTSC.

Nobody seemed to care to do anything about swatting when it wasn't happening to fat chicks with bad dye jobs. Anyway, more "think of the women" legislation with no real teeth.

If you want to solve swatting, you have to address it from the police side. The swatters are very difficult to find, very often overseas, and very often minors. These three things make new laws and punishments pretty ineffective as a solution.

So we need to change how we respond to these types of calls. Let's be honest with ourselves, no legitimate active shooter/hostage/other SWAT-required type of call is going to come from a single untraceable VOIP call. You're going to get nailed by calls coming from legitimate local cell phones. By all means, get everyone ready to roll if you receive a call, but if more calls don't come and the phone number is suspicious or makes no sense, you stop them short of actually deploying and endangering lives.

"But what if this results in a legitimate emergency call getting ignored! You have to take every call seriously."

No. You don't. Haphazard deployment of SWAT teams is orders of magnitude more dangerous than exercising a little caution on that one in a million 911 call that makes claims that warrant a SWAT response. Sending adrenaline fueled dudes with automatic weapons and flashbangs into some unsuspecting citizens home is a recipe for disaster, and it's simply not acceptable.

Ultimately the police have to realize that if they can't catch swatters then the burden is on them to adjust their behavior in order to protect lives.

What ever happened to "Everquest Next"? Did that go into eternal vaporware status?

The main leaders behind that project were among the ones that got laid off when SOE was sold by Sony. While it's still technically in development, the new management has rolled back all the open development stuff the previous guys were all about.

Now they simply don't talk about the game at all and haven't for many months. In fact, on their forums, they don't even allow YOU to talk about the game. There are no sections where suggestions or speculation about the title are considered on-topic. You may only discuss the current Landmark Workshop thing, which no one cares about.

The current thinking seems to be that the project was reassessed by the new owners and deemed too ambitious with the whole fully destructible sandbox thing with persistent AI. Many believe the reason the developers aren't talking is that they are busy reworking the scope of the game into a far less ambitious title to be re-announced later on.

In short, SOE doesn't really have the money or talent to do anything interesting, so whatever Everquest Next might have been, the thing that eventually comes out will bear no resemblance to it.

Having fun with this so far. I have run into surprisingly few bugs for a Bethesda game. I've got 6 hours in or so and haven't actually had any bugs that impacted gameplay. Haven't crashed or run into performance issues either. I was going into this expecting a lot worse, based on things I had read.

So far I've had fewer issues than I had with previous Bethesda titles.
