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.

Not sure why it matters what the person does for a job.....please share with me what jobs a person can hold to usurp the law because of their title..... president? lawmaker? priest?

Shitbags are shitbags. Have arrested cops, troopers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc. You name it.

So again you want to publicly execute them all? I'm curious, where do you draw that line? Do we kill all of the murderers too? What about people who commit manslaughter? I mean, they took a life after all which as a society we deem worse than even child molestation. Do we chop off an arm for thieves?

I'm not being flippant, I'm honestly curious how do you define what we kill for and what we don't? I think child molesters belong in prison, something is inherently broken inside of them and I believe they pose a danger to society but I can't bring myself to kill them for it. You seem to aim for a more vengeful approach, I find it a bit disturbing coming from a cop to be honest but I would love to hear your point of view as I'm always open to changing my mind.

I just finished reading the piece, pretty stupid stuff. Snapchat was aware teens were causing high speed crashes as a direct result of this filter and did nothing, yeah they are absolutely partially culpable.

You gave an example Batman, let me provide a counter to that. When tylenol was aware of people tampering with their product they didn't say "oh well they are abusing our product and its not our responsibility", they acted to protect the public by securing it against neglient use. Gun manufacturers put safeties on guns to protect against accidental discharge that used to be rampant. They could have just said "golly shucks, use our product the right way" but they didn't.

To act like companies have no responsibility to the public doesn't feel right to me. If my company acted that way I wouldn't want to be associated with it. There is more to life than simply making money, you can do so in a responsible and moral manner. I get the whole old man "aint no personal responsibility anymore" bit because I feel the same way sometimes but I think you're way off base on this one. Also you never came back to the thread about child porn the other day when you said they should be publicly executed, that guy turned out to be a cop just FYI. Might give you some perspective on that subject in the future.

News Comments > Blizzard on Vanilla WoW Shutdown

Sorry to interrupt the pissing match but This seems to have done the trick of deflating the balloon, the forums and press seem to be going back to normal. I think a lot of the players weighing in helped too, I had a buddy who was convinced legacy servers would be some sort of panacea but I invited him to play on Kronos for 2 hours and that was all it took.

They've learned a lot of lessons since WoD and I feel like they're going to do great things again in the future with a new team in place.

Wish we could publicly execute CP users and molesters. Have buddies that are cops that "play" as underage girls online - we arrest people coming in from all over the world......it is endless.....so sick.

Did you read the article? He's a cop, still want to publicly execute him?

As a society we're trying to move on from that sort of behavior and its a bit disturbing to see someone charged with upholding the law say that we should just publicly execute people as if he was rattling off the sports scores. Child molesters should be in prison where they can't harm society, assuming there is no chance at rehabilitation which I dare say is the truth for most of them.

My favorite memories of the vanilla years was breaking into places we weren't supposed to be able to get to.

Caverns of Time was a crazy process, of jump here.. jump there.. walk over here.. drop here... When you got in there was no texture to the walls, you just saw items floating and that trippy background with the star field and nebula.

Mount Hyjal was fun too. "*[UNDER CONSTRUCTION]*"

I fell through the world a few times while trying to get into Hyjal. My only fond memories of old school WoW are all nostalgia borne and more related to the awesome guild we had rather than the gameplay itself being any good. Getting my Thunderfury was pretty nuts but even that was a stupid grind though when I look back on it. I really enjoyed Twin Emps and felt it was a perfectly tuned encounter but it relied on 40 people being in perfect sync which is pretty dicey even for a good guild. The good thing about WoW now is that you can still go back and do most of the old raid stuff thanks to LFR, its not just dead content like most of the player run shards I tried.

Karazhan was a ton of fun. Awesome design, wacky encounters, lots to do for every class. The game needed more stuff like that and less filler thats just designed to waste time.
