Man, Kevin Spacey is DONE. He won't be able to get a spot in a commercial anymore.

Talk about going from being high A list to trash in the space of one tweet.

He's a sexual predator and a pedophile for sure. Many of the accusations are coming from people who at the time were teenagers and those are the ones we know about. It's nice to see it being taken seriously, I was worried because often times sexual crimes against men are downplayed.

I'm happy to see the gay community isn't helping him. His "coming out" was the most conveniently timed bullshit I've seen in awhile, it was so obvious he was trying to use the gay community for PR cover.

I've rarely seen worse traffic than in Vegas so probably a good testing ground for self-driving vehicles.

I was thinking they probably regretted doing AP.

I don't think so, AP was really interesting. Shame they didn't get more time from Sega, it had a lot of potential and is one of the few true branching dialogue games with impact. It's an oft lamented game around on the web, it has some real moments of brilliance.

Holy shit, that's huge.

AMD's chief engineer for their GPU's has jumped ship and joined with Intel so they can start creating high-end discrete GPU's? Did not see that coming!

More competition is great for us consumers, but I really don't see AMD lasting very long the way things are currently going with them. They may as well just make ASIC devices for bitcoin miners at this point.

Raja fucking blew it with AMDs GPU division so that's not necessarily doing them any favors. Seriously he was so bad and uncommitted that Lisa Su had to do his fucking Computex presentation for him. IMO He's a dreamer who can't execute, he spent more time farting around as an extra on a movie set than ensuring the Vega launch would go smoothly. Taking a six month sabbatical right after launching a stinker, way to go down with the ship.

I hope Intel keeps a tight leash on him.

I remember a few people calling the Raja thing awhile ago, pretty obvious after he went on "sabbatical" after the disastrous Vega launch.

Microsoft has yet another come to jesus moment with first party IP. It's almost like you need quality games to keep people buying your shit, who would've imagined?!

They keep running at the first sign of trouble. Sunset Overdrive didn't sell that well because of our inept marketing and lack of market base at that time, ok pack it up and tell Insomniac to fuck off. Back to Gears/Forza/Halo, those will never get old!

Come buy our $500 gaming box, it has the same third party games as any other platform and nothing else. Sounds enticing to me.

Thanks true, he could run as a republican, without any problems now.

You should've said "he could be President"

But yeah no, he couldn't run as a Republican. By the time he's done the Republican party will be something else entirely.

Cool costume, but this bit from the article:

Rousey once spent $1,300 on WoW cards for the chance to get a rare mount, but unfortunately for her, it didn't work out.

How is this NOT gambling, exactly?

It's straight up unregulated gambling.

Faking Windows 10 activations must be more difficult than sevens. Thanks Microsoft.

It's basically this. There are cracks for Windows 7 that allow updates etc and no require no re-authentication. I don't think these exist for Windows 10.

You're right, most of the activation hacks spoof a local activation server response. That said they are pretty much painless to use nowadays.

It's a $500 device with a selling point of "lots of third party patches to enhance games". Very unimpressive, Microsoft really sucks this generation. They need to invest in some first party studio partnerships again, all of their franchises are hitting franchise fatigue territory and when one of your tent poles is "Super Lucky's Tale" then you've got some issues to address.

meanwhile crooked Hillary is confirmed crooked.

thank you donna brazile for confirming what everyone with a brain already knew.

I thought people on the left would be a little upset about this but somehow it got glossed over. Perhaps you're right, since everyone "already knew" it just doesn't have any impact whereas fresh scandals or unknowns are more compelling reading.

I thought Sanders was a really interesting candidate. He wouldn't have been able to pay for any of his grand ideas but that election was certainly calling for them. The school tuition stuff was impossible and he had no credible plan but damn it would have been nice to see someone try.

Leah was pretty bad but I always loathed Maghda in that game. A silly butterfly lady who exists only to annoy me to death with hamfisted plot exposition and Saturday morning cartoon laughter? What a compelling villain MWUA HA HA HA HA.

Blizzard's writers were never exactly stellar but things really took a nosedive in that game.

Razer makes decent mice but their other products are awful, I can't imagine giving them $700 for a phone.

I have two 3 month old Razr Deathaddr Chroma mice with the left click problem that Razr flatly refuses to acknowledge and their support denies exists. They can go fuck themselves with a nail studded bat wrapped in rusty barbed wire.

Meanwhile, my crusty, ancient MX518 from Logitech keeps chugging right along.

Yeah I've been hearing this from a lot of people online lately. I have a really old DeathAdder that has held up well but I hear their QA and build quality is just bullocks these days.

Quick campaign first impressions on COD WW2 for those that care

The intros, cut scenes & story are very well done.
The in game animations not so much, typical COD everyone just drops too fast on being hit etc.
I like to turn in game music off but it looks as if thats not an option thankfully it's sparingly used.
I like the health regen, it's authentic & keeps you in the moment.
The hit indicator is horrendous, unsubtle & embarassing, thankfully so far with shit going down theres no time to really focus on it too much. (why would they not give you the option to turn it off?)
Sound effects are pretty good, graphics all turned up max 1920 1080 it looks pretty.
Amazingly with how linear the game is retrying a scenario things can & do play out a little differently, not much but enough to make you go... cool.
You can between chapters change difficulty & even step down mid chapter if struggling. (props)
I have this installed on my HD not ssd & Load times are amazingly fast, also things save on exit.(big props to them)
Update
The flamethrower is amazing

Thanks for the impressions Hoop. I read a bunch of reviews last night and its doing surprisingly well, might pick it up next year when Activision marks it down by 5% haha.

Nope wrong as usual, it's literally the same situation with the gender changed. You have some fucking nerve chasing me around after condoning sexual assault the other day and making a disgusting crack about "bad man touching you". You're either a troll or a psycho, I can't figure out which but I'm not tolerating it anymore.
