Exactly, I just buy their games when they're out of early access. If you aren't willing to take risks don't use early access then whine about it later, problem solved.

JC 3 is amazingly fun.

Agreed. I've apparently been lucky enough not to run into any bugs at all. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's going to be a classic, and anybody expecting something revolutionary would be disappointed, but what it definitely is is JC2 cranked up a couple notches, which is exactly what I wanted from it.

Also the gunplay mechanics are much improved, which makes firefights fun, whereas they were kind of a chore in JC2.

I think maybe it would be more appropriate to call it Just Cause 3.0.

That's good to hear, the gun mechanics in JC2 were really lame. I'm severely backlogged but I'll pick this up later on for sure.

American parents are much more afraid that their children will see penises than decapitations according to a new survey commissioned by the ratings board.

And there's your problem right there, Vern.

Not sure why you're using my name here, its 5 letters btw shouldn't be tough. I can only assume you mean nin or someone else who posted. I didn't post in this thread, on this subject or even send in the story. Don't try to attach my name to your rants or whatever.

I'm working on a new app called Launch Your Launchers. Basically it launches your other launchers. Keep all of your handy publisher launchers in one list! I'm going to make a killing, I can feel it

Cutter took my son under his wing back when WoW came out and really helped him get started.

I'm sure he did, right before he started his ridiculous nazi apologism, making racist comments and generally acting like an immature little twerp. The good does not outweigh the bad.

Guy did good making it to 48. To be a rocker I reckon you have to have a tormented soul.

Cats only have 9 lives and Weiland used up 15. Lucky indeed.

Sad to see Weiland go. He had a lot of problems but was so damned talented.

If I was going to buy a Galaxy today it would be a S5....but chances are I wouldn't buy a Galaxy. I would probably pick a LG or a HTC if I was buying something today.

Don't ever buy an LG phone. I have an LG phone, and it's a terrifying piece of shit. It works fine as an internet device, and it plays games well, but the thing that it really should do well, the thing I bought it for, the thing it's CALLED: Being a phone, it sucks fucking donkey ass at.

It's a giant piece of shit. Don't ever buy one.

I thought the Nexus 4 was pretty decent and the G4 is nice too. LG can ok from time to time.

HTC makes wonderful phones but unfortunately doesn't have the brand cachet anymore to justify the prices. Love their phone chassis though.

EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN Z 12G-P4-3990-KR 12GB GAMING. $1,550 at Newegg. This SINGLE card was designed specifically for 4K gaming without needing to overclock. In about 2-3 years this card will drop down to $300-400; or less

Nah it won't unless you buy one used on Craigslist or some shit. Vendors just let the channel dry up, they don't keep ordering expensive cards like and leave them in stock to sell down later. They order shitloads of lower end cards, not many higher end ones. Even used 680 Titan Blacks are like ~$600 new these days. No one eats a loss that big if they can help it.

Single card solutions are certainly preferable but not always affordable. You can get a second 970 on a deal for a third or less of a Titan. I'm not a big fan of SLI but I can see why people go for it.

It's especially amusing when you consider that the same supposed spyware is in Windows 7 and Windows 8 now. Not that it's really spyware anyway, people like to throw around that label but its inappropriate in this case. You can turn off almost everything with toggles built into the operating system, it even asks you during the install what your preferences are. No one can ever provide specifics of what this supposed private data being collected is either. They just make vague allusions to nefarious background processes and shadowy dealings with advertisers or something.

I really don't care if Microsoft collects some random memory dump files and other shit either, that stuff has little value beyond software improvement. Steam and Origin collect similar info all the time, where's the rage?

Windows 7 is not any faster.

Maybe at the beginning it was due to driver immaturity, its a common theme when new OS launches occur. It certainly isn't true anymore though.

I just use Crashplan. It can spread files around via the LAN so you don't have to worry too much and once in awhile I back it up to a colocated server. I've had a few SSD controllers die on me, storage tech in general is as reliable as your backup strategy is IMO.

My problem with the Apple Watch is the battery life and the cost. Wearables are a non-starter for me until battery tech improves and Apple takes a ridiculous premium on the watch even considering R&D and etc.

Conceptually I don't think they are very useful but I admit I am not the target market of the product.

So I watched the first four episodes of Jessica Jones over TG... and the show is awful. It's time to rethink casting when virtually every supporting member is more capable than your star; Ritter is terrible. Continuing the trend of everyone fawning over anything with "Marvel" affixed to it...

Meanwhile The Knick continues to distance itself from the competition as the best thing on television.

Yeah I'm not a fan either and I was really surprised to see all of the positive coverage on it. Daredevil has its problems but at least took some creative risks and had a few decent performances.

News Comments > AMD Crimson Drivers Issue
34. Re: AMD Crimson Drivers Issue Dec 2, 2015, 10:05 Verno
 
I tried to be polite and to the point but if you insist...you sound like a weirdo on this stuff. It's a videocard, not your girlfriend. AMD has a paid marketing department and this isn't a battle or something, there's no need to get all weird about defending a brand. Look its pretty simple, stop making assumptions that everyone else doesn't somehow have your "experience" with these things and that anything negative about AMD is a "misunderstanding". Another example being that I have "no interest" because I said something you don't like. I have significant experience with AMD/ATI products, perhaps even more than you. That doesn't mean I don't have a critical eye for problems on either side of the fence.

Being completely unwilling to listen or change is not exactly a stance I would trumpet either. Anyways I'm moving onto other threads so whatever. I posted that because in the past I found you to be reasonable. If you don't want to listen to it then fair enough.

And btw, this game has that shitty DRM Denuvo. Another reason to avoid this game.

Denuvo is just an executable wrapper that has no real impact on performance. It occurs in microseconds at load time to randomize some stuff in memory to prevent cracked exes from loading the game and only really affects pirates. It is nothing to worry about. The few complaints about it were discredited and based on erroneous information.

The games performance issues on the other hand are a real problem.

You are way too defensive about AMD cards man, its impossible to take you seriously on the subject. People frequently bring up Nvidia driver issues, just look at any Nvidia thread. That doesn't mean they won't do the same about AMD.
