I feel like that article made me 50 IQ points dumber just by reading it... that is a new record... so Alice and Bob talked and glitched.. wow.. what danger..such amaze! Considering that thing can't even make breakfast this is a really hilariously stupid headline. In reality, all this was was a bug between 2 chat bots as there are millions in any large IT project.

I've had chat-bots in IRC that did this 15 years ago!

Can we fund a kill-bounty fund for crypto miners? Because that seems cheaper than buying any card right now.. wtf. Availability is so low you might as well hire an assassin and pwn a miner for his cards instead.

Pyre is imo a pretty damn amazing game

When I learned it was an RPG, I almost bought it, but then I read reviews about it being something of a basketball/rugby game. I avoid sports games like the plague, so figured I'd maybe get it on sale later.

To me it's a visual novel with isometric shooter mechanic undercover in a ritual with a glowy sphere, 2x3 dudes and 2 goals.

Depends on how you look at it, but this should not stop you. If you enjoy fantastic art and an absolute mind-fuck of a story/character assortment then you will enjoy this game. replayability is very low though, there are many things you can only discover by losing (intentionally or otherwise) during the playthrough, which is not optimal.

And you got 2 hours to decide.. use that refund function if you hate it. It's what it is there for. ^^

The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., on Friday ordered aviation regulators to consider setting minimum standards for the space airlines give passengers.

Really? That's it? Not set an actual standard, simply consider one? Well gee that's a big help isn't it? Rolleyes

So an article about a new blue flower and not one single picture? Rolleyes

Helf, you get your Vive yet?

Yeah, but had a shit short day at work so got it setup, updated, placed, I got to finally spend some time in Bridge Crew.

Few things I've noticed... like a lense glare off the lenses at first (finally found 'the sweet spot'). HTC can't make software for shit (not the Vive itself but it's storefront and the 3 different HTC pages to register/setup/store front). Also there is a circular pattern on the lenses that at least for now is noticeable to me, as well as the hexagon screen door look.

The price you pay for a head-set with 150g less weight. Had these been glass lenses with nano-coating to kill glare, and refraction tuning to kill the pattern (requires more than 1 lense) you would have a perfect image... well, in 1 very specific sweet spot.

In the attempt to make it a mass market tool HTC/Rift sacrificed image quality hard. (And also, they probably didn't want to pay the $$$ for modern nano-coated mineral glass lenses (you'd have needed at least 3 per eye), which only very few high-tech companies can even build...

Basically, this is why I don't buy into VR yet. Until manufacturers offer me QUALITY over "IT WORKS, BARELY" I will not buy it. And obviously wireless is not ever gonna be a thing for me either, mounting a high gain WIFI antenna to my brain is not ever gonna happen

That wasn't the kind of "video game trailer" I was expecting.

I agree, that headline made absolutely no sense until I read the article. I didn't know that kind of trailer existed.

So I wasn't the only one who was going WTF the entire article, I still don't even understand what that trailer was FOR.

The Psychic Readers Network owns the rights to the persona of Ms. Cleo and claims to have spent $100 million to make her famous, while the makers of GTA have made over $500 million on her lookalike.

Yeah, everyone that bought GTA Vice City did so because it has a lookalike of Ms. Cleo in it.

Especially because she's dead for a year already....

What are the folks who don't understand the subject matter going to bitch about now?

Well, I cut down the devs post to the part that is literally the most important part about the whole post, you know, as ban reason for stream sniping

http://imgur.com/a/39jn4

It's always classy to have your proof for a ban be "we can't prove this ban reason but we ban anyway because we have evidence that doesn't prove it but we see it as proof"

I am mainly interested in this for the popcorn, and as former server admin for CS ;p Can you imagine what a absurd ban that would be with a reason written like that? Just replace stream sniping with botting or wallhax. Seriously, just imagine I (as server admin) would ban you for wallhacking saying I don't have proof that you wallhacked in the ban reason, instead I use your INGAME activities as proof for it. In-game activities for which there could be a myriad of reasons....

I'm referring to gamers, not the whole world.
Yeah your right, I was looking at overall use. I guess you could use Steam as a pretty good gauge of OS's used by gamers? If so your numbers are right on track:

Windows 10 = 50%
Windows 7x64 = 32%
Windows 7 = 4%

Blizzard (b.net) store games, are a whole nother topic though.. You don't need a modern gaming rig for ANY of Blizzards games.

Saying that because this game will obviously be sold through b.net, and so it will, naturally, support Windows 7... least until 2020 and who knows what happens in-between. Probably Windows 11 ^^

A NIC worthy cpu without integrated GPU, AMD, why do you always give me reasons not to buy your stuff?
https://www.bluesnews.com/s/182597/morning-tech-bits more of that APU stuff in todays morning tech bits

Yeah I had seen that, but the A series from AMD isn't a NIC cpu, the cooler for that needs to be pretty beefy, and there is no place for that in a hand (pretty big hand, but still) sized case.... in fact the entire cooling solution is larger than my ENTIRE i3u based NIC

There seems to be some confusion as to what Stream Snipe means.
One who follows a streamer's stream and uses that info to kill them.
And yes, that shit should get you banned.

And how would you prove that you didn't do that when a streamer claims otherwise and you didn't stream to have any gameplay proof of your own?

Gameplay data is not a proof of anything, it's entirely circumstantial, and this ban was applied 20!!!! Minutes after the SINGLE kill by that guy. And these streamers are paid by the developers to show the game off, you don't need to be a detective to see the real reason for this rule and ban policy.

This is just the kind of bullshit you should expect for a game that has as rule 12

Do not stream snipe: this is a form of cheating and you will be banned if you do it

Because god forbid someone kills a streamer in a fucking battle royale game. You couldn't make this shit up even if you tried.

EVE Online, keeping utter sociopaths off the streets for just a bit longer.

It is pretty impressive how well developed the meta-game is around EVE though.

god that is exactly how i feel. i used to find these kinds of stories amusing but now i just think it's weird giving sociopath nobodies a platform to feel like important big-shots.

At least they finally have a game for themselves, that's a REALLY good thing.

Could be the best yet?

Car models look great, driving mechanics reported by beta testers to be the best yet for the series, but the videos show absolutely no car reactions to even fake bumps on the road. I've grown so accoustomed to laser scanned tracks, going to Codies F1 is like stepping back in time despite being the latest interpretation of the formula.


(Nitpick mode ON) - the top wings are ALL wrong (and Redbull especially looks nothing like Hungary 2017) ^^

Pyre is to me, the surprise indy title of the year, fantastic visuals, and I MEAN FANTASTIC, you have NEVER seen visual art on this level. A great soundtrack, really really good story-telling and even half good gameplay.

It's essentially a visual novel, just.... different. First game in a long while that gripped me and when I stopped playing a free day was gone.
