News Comments > Sunday Safety Dance
2. Re: Sunday Safety Dance Feb 28, 2016, 17:17 Wallshadows
 
A chip out in the wild is another decent layer of security but with more and more consumers purchasing their goods on the internet, that's the real test of card security. With a little leg work, some dickhead can find out the billing address tied to the card and all they have to worry about is fat-fingering the card number and three-digit key and collect before it gets reported as stolen.

The ONLY time I have ever seen a third step requirement was a couple days ago when I bought a Windows 10 OEM key from G2play. I threw in my payment information, hit submit, and was given an error stating that I had to contact my bank in order to unblock, verify, and complete the order. I still got around this by paying through paypal though.

Zen has been 'just around the corner' for some time now but has AMD even released a solid date for shipping or are they dangling a carrot on a stick while throwing out vague release dates like Blizzard with content updates?

Yeah, okay, but like most Lovecraft translations to film and games, how hard will it suck?

Maybe they are basing it off the historical documentary The Great Martian War from History.

News Comments > New Radeon Crimson Drivers
5. Re: Out of the Blue Feb 25, 2016, 23:47 Wallshadows
 
I filed a ticket with XFX since I thought my card was on the brink of death and it's still under warranty. XFX support is pants on head retarded though and the agent literally ignored all the information in my ticket so after several back and forth emails to get to where we would have been had he read my ticket I just let it be once Afterburner solved the issue.

I could send one to AMD though but they'll probably give me some binned response about how Afterburner is the problem even though it was the solution.

With or without actual fan fixes?

I have the drivers released before this set and I had to install Afterburner because the automatic fan settings were fucking up my video card even though AMD released a hot fix which supposedly addressed the issue in a previous version.

If this didn't have Ubisoft tagged to it then I'd be interested.

I have to stick to the plan.

What's so bad about living in Russia? I am sure there are some parts of it which are modernized and okay-ish.

I wish they'd make a game based on the Necromongers going to the Underverse. Hell, I wish they'd make a Riddick movie with that storyline.

I would have settled for Karl Urban being in the second movie for more than three seconds.

Nice 'minimalist' mouse and I'm surprised Asus aren't charging at least $100 because of that scribbling on the palm rest.

News Comments > Heroes of the Storm Matchmaking Update
5. Re: Heroes of the Storm Matchmaking Update Feb 18, 2016, 10:22 Wallshadows
 
Blizzard and balance are two words you'll rarely properly use together. Their idea of balance in all games is to either over-nerf or over-buff and continue this method without an end in sight. FOTM balance is a great way to describe their (in)ability to address the issue.

This is what concerns me about Warlords with their Artifact system AND the new Legiondaries which drop in the open world which can have a dramatic effect on player power. Not just compared to each other but whether or not one spec/artifact will be great in one tier and suck in the next for whatever reason. Will I HAVE to grind an alt or my secondary Artifact in order to not be the burden to the group and, if so, will there be proper catch-up method or am I just SOL and have to catch up by putting double time in to the game.

News Comments > Fallout 4 DLC Plans; Season Pass Price Jump
20. Re: Fallout 4 DLC Plans; Season Pass Price Jump Feb 16, 2016, 19:57 Wallshadows
 
indifferent. Far Harbor seems legit and the other two are the typical season pass filler that don't interest me but I'll be damned if I am locked out of mods because they require specific DLC once the Creative kit is released.

It does make me wonder what their approach will be in regards to DLC though. Will they release one campaign for every handful of fluff? I'm not super crazy at the idea of throwing money in to an empty box and hoping for the best.

yeah oem works fine. there's no way to convert a key, so actually getting a clean install of w10 is a headache.

I might just get a Windows 10 OEM key for a couple bucks extra and call it a day then since I would do a fresh install.

The only tricky area is that in several months I might throw together a new system and, from my understanding, OEM keys are tied to hardware so it likely wouldn't transfer over to the new hardware. Is this something I could call MS support about and see if they can transfer it or would I bet SOL?

Can you take an OEM version of, say, Windows 7 and perform the upgrade to Windows 10 as if it were retail?

Disappointed not to see American Truck Simulator on the list. That game is so much fun!

Watching a Jim Sterling video of it now and it looks interesting. The degree up fuckuperry is amazing and Jim just makes it that much more interesting. lol

Steam takes forever to allow or deny a refund. I sent a message asking what's up but then I realized it's essentially going to the same department and threw my palm on to my face.

So when do we get the good news that Shkreli will be visiting the big house for life? Since all his charges have to do with money, he's more fucked than if he blew up a bus full of Nuns so I hope he gets sent to the closest thing to Crematoria as possible.

Let cell block D wipe that smirk off his rat face.
