Yeah agreed, I would just get an Elgato or Hauppauge card so that you aren't tied down to Nvidia. I'm sorry its affected a few people but I just can't get very worked up over this personally. I fed it an old email account and moved on with my life.

No one really expected you to go into depth on an issue Cutter, don't worry. You somehow "never have time" to qualify your inane statements yet somehow you have time to comment in every thread and offer one liner rebuttals instead of logic or facts.

It remains a complete mystery to me how you remain unbanned. Count your lucky stars and try not to piss off Blue so much, last time I checked you had received the ban stick pretty much everywhere else. This is pretty much your last bastion, treat it well.

Which would be fine if my insurance didn't go up because of them! Make unhealthy people pay more for insurance and I am all on board.

Why is it important that "fat people" pay more? How do you determine who is fat and who isn't? What happens if someone from your family puts on weight and gets sick, are you going to truly be ok with your comment here? Do you understand that food choices aren't always transparent and well educated? As a society we subsidize processed garbage and fast food. Perhaps we should start tackling root causes rather than embracing thoughtlessness?

If we're leaving insecurities at the door then Cutter shouldn't be admitted at all

Who cares. Its a thing I'll log into once and then probably neverhave to log in again for like 2-4 years when I build a new rig.

I'm certainly not going to cut off my nose to spite my face and buy some underperforming AMD space heater.

Yeah I don't really understand the big deal. Companies have been forcing me to have a login for the past 10 years. Geforce Experience is just bloatware anyway according to the internet. I checked their site last night and you could still download drivers without GFE so much ado about nothing.

I nearly got into a fist fight at Costco recently over a shopping cart ding, not super proud of it. My GF was there to calm me down and probably saved me from a court appearance. Sometimes that testosterone just gets going and you forget its just a big hunk of plastic/metal, not worth the hassle even if its some asshole ticking off the "life aint fair" box for you that day.

My personally most hated developer. He not only messed DayZ up (given, after creating it), but he also messed ArmA 3 up, maybe even the whole future of that franchise.

What did he do to ArmA 3? Or just his general fucking around with Bohemia affected it?

Weird that it claims the regular S7 does that. I have one as do like 10 of my friends and family and many of us have joked about how it feels like we are the only ones in our little circles currently not complaining about our phones. As always, personal experience doesn't always represent the global reality. Between all the headaches Apple and Samsung have been giving people recently I was sure I had completely lucked out.

Perhaps its just a batch that uses the same battery supplier?

Remember the last studio, founded by dev celebrities departing from Blizzard, being richly funded from the start without having a proper project?

Ahh, yes, Flagship Studios! Oh boy, those were funny days

That's all in your head, there's nothing adversarial about any of the criticisms aimed at your comment and stop trying to paint it as me vs you, several other people responded too. At worst my hitler jest was poking fun at your bizarre comparison to the worst game of all time, godwins law in good humor. You posted something incendiary and instead of explaining when people criticized it you got all indignant, as if can't disagree with what you said. Put differently, no one is trying to change your mind, they're just saying its a bad comparison. If you really don't want to explain it then stop posting already, this circular nonsense took way longer than just filling in the blanks or not posting at all. Take your own medicine - if you want to have a conversation, it helps not to start it off with "this is my opinion, its fine and no one can discuss it". Sheesh.

It's a shame because by most accounts the Note 7 is a pretty good phone...when it isn't blowing up.

I don't know, I played WoW a ton while I was in university but looking back a lot of that time was just boring filler crap. Does my hourly play count mean that I enjoyed it? Maybe, maybe not. Sometimes your perspective changes after playing something I guess. I'm not justifying the idiots looking for refunds or giving troll reviews though, that shit is just stupid.

You must have a rowdy social circle. My iPhone 6 plus has outlasted three cases and survived many drops. Same for my wife's iPhone 6 (although I think she's on her first or second case).

The iPhone tends to source its glass from Corning who make pretty decent stuff but ultimately its still going to break when dropped at least part of the time. The iPhone is not what I would consider a durable phone but then again neither is mine. Most rugged phones have some extra shock absorption edging, a padded chassis or etc. A buddy of mine dropped his iPhone 6 and the screen was cracked. A different friend left their Nexus 6p on the roof of his truck, somehow managed to drive around and winged it off the roof during a turn. It's somehow still perfectly intact with no scratches. Does that mean Huawei makes a more durable phone? Nah, its just luck.

I'm not going to have this conversation with a complete lunatic. That's about as far as I'll take this with you, wonder bread.

You of all people calling me a lunatic is rich. It has nothing to do with me and your attempts to keep personalizing it are transparent. You made a dumb comment that several people criticized, refuse to own it and want the last word.

"[after setting your car on fire] Listen your cars temperature has changed before."

Hahahah perfect dig at the climate change deniers.

I'm using a Nexus 5x and couldn't be happier. Stock Android is the way to go. Running Nougat on it and battery life is good. Previously I had a Galaxy S6 and while the hardware was fine, Samsung's bullshit touches on Android are annoying.

I used to go with battery life as my most important factor but with fast-charging its not a big deal anymore. My phone goes through a full day of use and still ends up at 40-50%, charges up to full in less than 30-40 minutes usually. Even just 10 minutes gives about 4-5 hours of use.

I do feel like blizzard needs a fresh infusion of blood, but I also worry what that means for the future.

I worry it will mean a bunch of mobile crapware to be honest. Then again the last time they let a bunch of people fool around we got Hearthstone and Overwatch so its not all bad.
