You asked about compatibility issues, my HP laptop loses the ability to sleep and sound volume is half as loud due to no SRS sound driver. A 2012 laptop (with ssd) that will happily remain on Windows 7s and jump to linux when the time comes.

I misspoke on hibernation, Fast Startup relies on a hybrid hibernation file. more here http://www.howtogeek.com/243901/the-pros-and-cons-of-windows-10s-fast-startup-mode/

Anyone with eyes can see that the desktop icons were changed, and not for the better.

The "it never happened to me" meme is lame. Myself and others have seen the pop-ups for rate this app and upgrade Office etc.. When Counter-Strike: Global Offensive acts weird, his fellow gamers say "it never happens to me" so he comes about it honestly.

Windows 10 is the greatest, if you disable this and turn off that and change the other, and don't mind Beta testing your OS, and enjoy the built in Malware style of marketing.

TLDR
I definitely recommend taking advice from someone who used XP for 11 years when 2 superior options (Vista SP2 and Win 7 SP1) were readily available.


What specific model is your HP laptop? I would like to check this out for myself.

If only they had any clue how to actually detect and ban them to implement this. Ubisoft is absolutely clueless in this area, its a problem in pretty much any game they make with an online component.

I don't know, I like games but more and more I'm into productive hobbies. I really want games that tell a good story but they are few and far between. Just raw gameplay isn't grabbing me as much as it used to. I find myself doing a lot of stuff around the house or programming instead of just mindlessly respawning and grinding shit in BF or whatever.

Last weeks news cycle, no one cares anymore. At least now they can say "we listened" when the odd person tries to disrupt the forums. Good riddance to vanilla WoW, it was fine when you were 19 with no responsibilities but no one with a life wants that crap anymore. Draenor was a shitty expansion but the QOL improvements over the years are a godsend.

Sorry but you called him a schmuck and that's grounds for a lawsuit

He self-identifies as a dweeb and you have caused him considerable emotional harm.

You do realize you can just say "the person" instead of trying to hide a shitty insult referring to another human being as it. right? Best not to forget people are human at the least.

Or its possible that the person making the remark was confused by another persons gender change and said it in error. After all we're not robots and need to be understanding to our fellow humans, right? People make mistakes, is everything worthy of a lawsuit these days?

"Sabotaging" get the fuck out of here hahah. Sorry gents, no more reviews allowed because it might offend someone, you must like everything equally.

But, the data is somewhat interesting. Why watch something that is clearly not aimed at your demographic, and then go poop on it on the internet?

Seriously? The answer is easy - because you were "forced" to watch it. There are many things I would otherwise never watch if I didn't have to compromise with the woman. Sometimes if I see that show pop up on IMDBs front page or whatever I will give my honest opinion of it. She probably does the same thing and I don't give a shit because ratings don't matter.

This is going to be fantastic, had a great time in the betas. Already have a group ready to play it too, can't wait for the early start. Can't wait for the Bastion/Junkrat tears to start flowing.

Well let's see, it sure beats watching such garbage on the TV like Survivor, The Bachelor, The Voice, ad infinitum.....or most of the sitcoms of which few are actually funny.....

It really doesn't. Entertainment is entertainment, very little of it has any actual value outside of pleasure. I'm ok with video games giving little back, the whole point is just entertainment. I don't have fun drywalling, mowing the lawn or laying tile. I have fun playing video games. The author seems to suggest we demand more in terms of storytelling and other features from games but I feel like the industry is slowly getting there.

Hardware > Blue Build Summer 2016
5. No subject May 13, 2016, 12:43 Verno
 
Cool. I'm a big fan of Fractal-Design, the R3 was alright but since then they've really improved on the line. The R5 is one of the nicest cases I've used, my only real complaint is that they need to revise the drive sleds to tool-less brackets like Corsair/etc. Beyond that its really close to perfect, great temps, built in fan controller, cabling is good and I love the understated aesthetic. I was hoping for 4x USB 3.0 on the front instead of 2x2 but hopefully the R6 gets there. It's got great options for future expansion, everything from watercooling to removing the roof of the case and so on is doable. Dust filters are washable and easily removed as well, this was a beef of mine from the R3 and R4 that they finally fixed.

The other quiet case I really like is the Corsair 600Q. It's an inverse build so you kind of have to rethink your usual cabling. The front port placement is really weird but I quickly grew to like it after initial WTFs. Usual Corsair build quality (excellent) and options galore. Its a big and heavy case like the R5 though, not taking it to any LAN parties haha. God I miss LAN parties.

Anyway good luck with whatever you choose, new builds are the best and its way too long between them these days.

You already have the case sorted I assume? I use a Fractal-Design Define R5 and even with the fan controllers on low my temps are very acceptable. It's also damned quiet, I can't even tell the thing is on half the time. I can't remember what CPU cooler I'm using, I think its a Cooler-Master but most of those giant aluminum/copper heat pipe monstrosities are the same.

Be careful if you get a stock video card, they can be loud. I usually wait for Asus or MSI to release something custom.

A buddy of mine went entirely passive for his build but it cost a fortune so I wouldn't recommend it.

You can choose the updated or original music I thought. It was that way on the PS4 remaster I played.

The few advantages of UWP have already been handled by middleware and third party distro apps like Steam. I really no need or desire to see any games embrace the framework.

No one really cares if you're going to pirate a bunch of stuff and sell your media but don't ask others to play make believe just because you stepped in a pile of your own hypocrisy as usual. You have no legal right to the contents of a disc after you sell it. Fucking LOL.

DRM woes

Sorry to hear it. I spent like 3 grand chasing the unicorn that is the perfect HTPC setup with Bluray included. In the end I gave up and decided to get an Nvidia Shield and a file server, couldn't be happier. Android TV has most of the base apps I care about, googlecast support, can run Kodi/Plex and so on. It even does my emulation stuff pretty well. For movies/tv I care about I do the rips myself with my own media to get the encode I want. I continually banged my head against the wall with Bluray on PC until I realized that I was sick of the bullshit. I was hung up on the lack of ownership thing without discs but now I just packrat that shit away in a NAS that I also backup to a cloud provider.

The media industry continually fucks up this stuff, its no surprise Netflix is taking them to the cleaners. Their answer to everything is insane protection and paranoia, meanwhile piracy has never been easier and more convenient.

yeah that's the thing. Right now tons of people running around like headless chickens but that is to be expected day 1 of an open beta... is it not?

Yep exactly. I see a lot of forum complaints about Bastion for example but that's because half of the player base is running mindlessly into turret fire over and over again, let alone remembering hard counters and stuff like that.

Game is super fun if you like small squad size battles and the map design so far is pretty decent. I like it. Simple to play, difficult to master. As you get matched against better people the game is way more fun.

I'm sad I missed the actual response and that the rest of this got so ugly. I hope you don't feel like people won't give your opinion a fair shake, I was just in a meeting otherwise I would've read and responded
