Meanwhile at AMD...


Seriously though if AMD doesn't get their shit together NVIDIA will go from "The way its meant to be played." to "Literally the only way it can be played."

I thought it was traditional to QA a product *before* release!

Oooohohohoho. I don't know when that was.

I always get a laugh out of how arbitrary system requirements are. Sometimes companies shoot for the moon on these things and you end up being able to get acceptable performance and quality on a much weaker system than recommmended. Other times even the recommended system struggles. And the minimum is sometimes a lot less minimum than other times.

That's 159m people who should rather be using uBlock Origin than supporting the scam outfit that runs AdBlock Plus, also, you can't block a browser plugin.. but don't tell that the Chinese firewall.

Yeah I really doubt anyone even remotely tech-savvy is going to be stopped by this.

I never understood why they bother giving Non-GAAP numbers. It doesn't take into account any labor expenses. Oh yea, puff their chest up and make it look better than it actually is. They don't pay out on Non-GAAP amounts to shareholders, so it is a waste of time.

Even the FASB official literature doesn't outright poo-poo non-GAAP reporting. It can be useful on a meta analysis level. Though you are correct that it's not really a great indicator of returns on its own.

I'd go to that pub. Let the little shitters find another spot while he gains a more interesting crowd.

A more interesting crowd? Ehh I'm not so sure.

Wouldn't a bar that goes out of its way to advertise itself as a "no cell phone" area attract a really unpleasant crowd?

The "cell phones are ruining the world" types are not exactly the most easy-going and pleasant bunch of people in the world. It's mostly a lot of really opinionated elderly Luddites with strong conservative political opinions.

Man, can't wait to build my quad-SLI Titan X machine. My Vive will run like buttah.

Too bad SLI is now limited to two cards unless you're benchmarking..

Also too bad SLI doesn't work with Vive currently... jdreyer's dream is dead. At least for the time being.

Folks will be tuning in to the Olympics to simply believe it's actually happening in Rio. It's like slowing down at an accident to have a look.

I'm sure most of whats aired will be properly sanitized to look better. More properly sanitized than anything the athletes are forced to touch, anyway.

What a fucking mess. Anyone defending that clusterfuck should be ashamed.

A lot of companies have found they can save a little bit of money by closing their forums and firing their forum moderators. They rely on Steam and a game-specific subreddit with volunteer moderators to serve as their community.

B5 curse continues. Very sad. Just finished rewatching the series a couple weeks ago. I didn't much care for Jerry's politics but sometimes listened to his radio show anyway because I liked the dude.

Here's hoping it's a long time before any more of the cast move beyond the rim.

That's when the man stepped in front of the vehicle, thinking they had possibly broken into his home, raised his gun and ordered them not to move, officials said.

The vehicle sped towards him and he moved out of its path. He then fired rounds at the vehicle because he said it "was attempting to strike him," Troiano said.

Bzzzt. Wrong answer douchebag. You can't intentionally step in front of someones car and then claim you feared for your life and start shooting them, nor do you have a right to detain people on a public street.

It's actually the reverse. The people in the car were the ones rightfully fearing for their life, and would be within their rights to run you over and leave you bleeding in the street.

That said, stop creeping outside peoples homes at 1:30am looking for Pokemons. Do that shit at a more reasonable hour.

I wonder how many fanatics will blame Derek Smart and everyone else they can try to find as a scapegoat instead of Chris Roberts.

Seems very likely. When this shit goes tits up, CIG will be blameless. It'll be the "haters" and Derek Smart and evil outside forces that "wanted the game to fail" who destroyed it.

Chris Roberts will go into hiding for 6 months or a year, and then he'll come back with another project and ask for more money and everyone he just ripped off with Star Citizen will pony up more cash.

I'll be dead and buried before this game is ever finished, or too old to play it due to arthritis and dementia.

Dementia seems to be a prerequisite for being a fan of this game, so at least on that front, you'd be okay.

After what these guys did in Human Revolution and Thief, I'll be waiting to hear from you guys.

Why wait? I can't see any scenario, based on what we've seen so far, where someone who thought Human Revolution was trash would like this game. It's an extremely similar game. You might as well just forget it.

News Comments > Valve on Game Item Gambling

RedEye9 wrote on Jul 13, 2016, 21:22:
Exactly.
It like intravenous addicts blaming hypodermic needle manufacturers for their addiction.

Drug addicts is a good comparison. Except needle manufacturers are not. Those manufacturers have no ability to stop drug addicts and drug dealers from using their products to harm themselves and others. Since they can't do anything about it, there is no expectation of them to do anything about it.

Valve has no such excuse. They can shut down these sites en masse via C&D letters or legal action without breaking a sweat. And that's probably what's going to happen now.

There's no reason Valve needs to be complicit in creating the next generation of degenerate gamblers.

Glad to see they are finally doing something about this.

There are regulations and barriers surrounding gambling for good reason, and there are cases to be made that these operations are already illegal in some jurisdictions.

Eh, same reactions, different crowds. There's plenty of gay weeaboo stuff out there, and it has its fans as well. Mostly girls and women.

Nice try, but even you must know it`s just a load of old balls. Care to name some of this "gay weeaboo stuff" and places where these alleged "girls and women" gather to discuss it? I mean, places as popular as the chan/reddit equivalents?

Is it as real as those subway men-only carriages?

I dunno. Look up fujoshi and find out where they hang out. Bonus points for typing "yaoi" into Google.

I read your comment earlier, and thought you had a good point (perhaps could have been worded better). It probably would have gotten a different reaction if the protagonists were men.

Eh, same reactions, different crowds. There's plenty of gay weeaboo stuff out there, and it has its fans as well. Mostly girls and women.

In either case you've got a group of people upset for puritanical reasons. Insecure tumblrinas/SJWs don't like titties or basically any straight or lesbian porn anime stuff and spend a lot of time mocking people who do. Then you have other people who are the opposite. Liking the straight or lesbian stuff, mocking the fans of the gay stuff.

If the theory is "You couldn't make a gay version of this and have any success.", I don't think that holds up. Certainly the target audience isn't as large, but there is a significant one out there.
