Reference cards are now called "Founders Edition" and cost $200 more. LOL.

...which means that the 1080Ti "reference card" will probably cost you one grand.

'Being made for Xbox One and PC'

That's all I needed to read. I'll pass.

Seconded. This is $4.99 Steam sale material at best. I'm not gonna fund Shitbox development via KS. LOL. The thought alone makes me want to puke.

Agreed. Not going to fund console garbage. Annoyed

I am hoping that the memory of the 1070 will not be neutered like the 3.5 +0.5 GB disaster with the 970.

You bet it will. Mr. Huang called it a "feature", so it makes perfect sense to keep it. Expect some 7 + 1 GB cripple this time.

Fool me once, Nvidia, shame on you
Fool me twice, shame on me.

Not gonna happen though. AMD, here I come.

How cute. Little Congress asked the three letter Behemoth a question and was expecting an honest answer... seriously? Sorry Congress, the NSA has become too big for your pathetic inquiries.

Yup, that could make it easier for him to realise that his beloved NSA started this shit by forcing Snowden to run/hide in the first place.

News Comments > Starpoint Gemini Warlords Early Access
3. Re: Starpoint Gemini Warlords Early Access Apr 15, 2016, 02:32 Lord Tea
 
Starpoint Gemini 2 never claimed to be a "Privateer"....

I played the main story up to a point at which the game didn't allow me to continue due to a nasty bug that they never fixed because only a few players encountered it. The game itself was pretty enjoyable though. The devs also released some free or reasonably priced addons for SG2. Support of the GOG version unfortunately was light years behind the Steam version. Several updates didn't even make it to GOG.

I for one will definitely get my hands on (the Steam version of) SGW sometime.

Fliers can expect massive security lines across the country, with airlines already warning passengers to arrive at least two hours early or risk missing their flight.

That's for domestic flights. For connecting international flights (incoming) make that five hours minimum. Because you will be spending three to four hours in line.
A better decision would be to avoid the U.S. as a tourist destination and skip the fucking monkey parade entirely.

It has to be able to see your profile when it checks the group membership.

Profile IS (was) public of course. They're on my list of spammers now, so no big deal.

This looks fucking gorgeous! Excited!

It looks like a 1:1 port of the original 1994 game (which I've played back then) to a modern engine. I'm not sure if this approach is going to work gameplay wise. Due to the limitations of the 1994 engine the original game lacks quite a few features of a modern game. I expect significant enhancements in this department, they need to do a whole lot of revamping behind the scenes. Porting to a new engine is probably the easiest part.

Fortunately both NSA and FBI can only fuck around on good old U.S. territory. And the f'ing around stops at the U.S. American border.

The picture that has been developing is: While every Non-American is a terrorist to begin with, every American is only, well, f'ed. Just like Snowden said: If government looks at your profile and they want to see a criminal, they will see a criminal. Things to come.

The Times noted that over the last year, WhatsApp has been upgrading encryption for messaging and voice calls.
... which, of course, is entirely incompatible with the idea of the United Police States of America.

Having read some of the posts at Steam this patch has added DX12 "compatibility" and with it: no improvement but instead a ton of issues LOL. So, fail. But keep trying or, better, let DX11 titles be what they are: made for DX11.

Ah, I'm eager to try out the Ashes of the Singularity performance with these drivers. DX12 is pretty much useless with current nvidia hardware , right?

That's correct. Their premium priced 980+ series is not built to last and is going to get owned in DX12 by AMD: https://twitter.com/PellyNV/status/702556025816125440

As an owner of a GTX970 I currently feel the accelerated obsolescence of this GPU, thanks to its memory bus limitation. More and more titles want 4 GB of VRAM, and not just 3.5.
