How the fuck was a Islamic terrorist attack?
There is NOTHING beyond his name and the color of his skin to suggest it. Any fucktard with internet access can "praise the attack" but not a single group has claimed the attack as their own.

ISIS claimed responsibility for it and it was well known prior to your posting. Do some research moron.

Megatextures load a gigantic texture into video card memory and the quality of it is limited by video card memory, which is why the textures are blurry as hell. This isn't a console induced limitation. They released improved textures for Rage because of people complaining and the textures were of the same shitty quality, except with a "sharpen" filter. It was ridiculous. Now, this was id tech 5, I haven't seen a game using id tech 6(was dishonored id tech 6? Cause that was blurry as all hell). From what I hear and see though, textures lack definition up close and there's texture pop in. The games look great from afar, but if you take time to look, you see that they lack definition up close and that the whole game has a washed up look. That's what I see in all id tech 6 games. I did play the Doom mp beta that uses id tech 6 and it definitely lacks well defined textures. The whole game is blurry too, but maybe that's because it was beta...

You have no clue how megatexture works. It's basically texture streaming -- it does not load a gigantic texture into video card memory. A 'megatexture' is generally too big to fit in video memory, so a texture 'buffer' is used for the portion of the texture you see. The whole point of it is to not have repeating textures. They first used it in Quake Wars for the map terrain, and it worked really well. Another added benefit is that there are fewer limitations based on video memory.

They did not release improved textures for Rage. They released a patch that enabled more visual options, including the sharpen filter.

The DOOM multiplayer beta was not representative of the final product and they've made that clear for quite some time now. There are significantly more visual options available for the PC upon release.

Your ignorance is astounding. Do some research before you rant about things that aren't true and look like an idiot.

And if Blue has a bias, why has he left all of the rest of yours , RT' s , and Mad Max' s posts?

You're assuming I mean political bias. You're wrong.

It all comes down to deciding who you like and who you don't like. Blue's behavior makes it clear how he feels about me. He's a poor moderator, and that contradicts the respectable attitude that's normally portrayed in in 'Out of the Blue'.

Prez, you've officially made my asshole list.

Blue, please remove my account from this site. I've been reading here since 1996 and it's deteriorated into a bunch of BS. Good riddance.

Wow Blue -- you just lost a reader. A reader that doesn't use ad blockers. Did someone 'tell on' me or is it just your bias against me? While this comment might have warranted removal, the last one you removed did not (it was a link to an article!).

There are plenty of other people that post insults here and you have no problem leaving them unremoved.

And don't even try and justify it with language appropriateness based on age. Some of the ads you have on your site are offensive and very inappropriate (F2P MMORPG's with blatant sexual content anyone?).

Your actions prove that you are an asshole as well. You have yet to justify them.

I challenge you to leave this post intact -- I'm just calling a spade a spade, and I encourage you and others to justify your actions.

It's good to know that widowed mothers working multiple part time jobs to make end meet don't have a fucking life and aren't productive members of society.


Geez Beamer -- can you lighten up for once?

Yeah. I agree with them that it's obnoxious, but if I don't do it I'll get told that I'm jealous or looking for handouts or expecting the government to do the work for me or whatever.

You're just a victim no matter what. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Lol. I believe that was due to the claims by you guys that Beamer was just jealous of wealthier people and wanted to bring them down. (Which was also an adhom, but hey that's cool)

I claimed nothing of the sort.

What?
I've never, ever claimed to be charitable. I give pretty much nothing to charities. Or homeless people. Once that money hits my bank account that's my damn money, and I don't feel I make nearly enough of it to be as comfortable as I want to be.

I'm talking about the fact that multiple times in this thread you've felt it necessary to make a point of the fact that you are well compensated for your work. We get it.

Hard work correlates weakly to success. Very weakly. Luck counts for more.

I agree on you with this. However...

Beamer wrote on Oct 31, 2013, 12:12:
Also the "pull yourself up by your bootstraps!" argument strikes me as flawed.

"Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!" is spot on. If luck is a factor, then logic will tell you that some people are going to have the bad kind. Sometimes this is the only answer to a situation. It's unfortunate and life sucks sometimes, but if someone chooses to not take this approach when it's necessary, I have no sympathy.

Also, did someone further down tell me I have a victim complex?

I'm a young, single, white cis-male. I'm a victim nowhere. The entire goddamn country is my oyster. My kind pretty much has any opportunity and all the power. All the wealth, too.

How the hell could I have a victim complex?

You're white now? Could have sworn you said you were black before. Go figure.

He used to be gay too. I heard a rumor that next week he's planning on being a handicapped female with a learning disability (due to him not getting enough attention recently).

Also, I have some kind of magical ability to have others turn these threads into about me, not about any issue.

It's because you're an attention whore. Obviously you didn't put me on ignore yet. Why? Because you want to be the center of attention and need people to fuel it. The way you answered the simple list of questions presented to you shows you love attention.

What do I do? I do corporate strategy.
Do I have a full time job? Yes.
Do I rent/own? I rent. A penthouse, actually. I'm pretty proud, just moved into it a few weeks back. Floor to ceiling windows, corner view of the waterfront on one side and the skyline on the other.
Do I have a family? God no. But I earn somewhere around the top 3% of households in this country, as a single male, and can't imagine what it would be like to be around the middle as a family of 4.
DO I own a car? Yes. But the advantage of living in a decent city is that I only touch it once every other week or so. Huge gas savings!
Do I have health insurance and know how much it costs? Yup. Although, being a healthy single young male, I have the cheapest possible. Deductible sucks, but I go to the doctor pretty much when I'm doing something that requires me to (e.g., going to a foreign country and need certain shots.)
Do I have a family of my own? You already asked this.

Funny that you couldn't even provide simple answers or even keep the same list of questions. Just sayin', that's all...


Beamer wrote on Oct 25, 2013, 15:31:
Not that you can verify any of this. People here know plenty of my background. None of them believe a word.

What reason do I have to not believe you? Geez, you're such a Debbie Downer <cue trombone sound>.

Beamer wrote on Oct 25, 2013, 15:31:
But I support gay rights, therefore I'm a bleeding heart that must drive a Prius with 10 Obama stickers on it.


Alright, that's it. Now I know you're gay!






C'mon Beamer -- get a sense of humor! With your income you could probably buy one

So is this the thread where if you dare deviate from the binary thinking that fits neatly into (pick one) LIBERAL/CONSERVATIVE you get labeled as a (pick the other one) CONSERVATIVE/LIBERAL?

Yep, you've come to the right place. C'mon in, the water is purple.
