Well, not too surprising, every car made in the US at least, since around... 2005? Phones home, or at least stores data onboard to be retrieved by anybody with the right connector. Of course there is a way to harvest cell phone data through those on board computers.

Also, never connect your phone to anything with Bluetooth, for fuck's sake. Any charger that plugs into a computer is always going to be suspect, wall charge only with your phone, or in the car, via cigarette lighter converter.

Just don't use your phone in the car period, lol.


How do you use GPS/Maps on your car's display without doing that?



Maps on my car's display? I look up where I'm going before hand on google maps, write out or print out directions. I get a little obsessive about driving.. I map out a couple routes, I check google maps for traffic before I leave the house/work/wherever, I memorize the routes I want to take and also have written copies of directions on paper. I hate relying on electronics at all while driving. It's also a habit from the old paper map days... I used to always do that pre-cell phones, still do I guess. Just the maps are better on computers now, makes it even easier.

My phone is actually good/new enough now to do on the fly google maps, but my car's display is a joke, and would probably get me killed looking at it on the road. As above, I don't really do on the fly mapping with my phone.

It's been years since I've tried to just get in the car and use my phone or the car's display to do mapping, they were always out of date or had me going through some side street or some shit. I assume it's better now, based on how good google maps and map quest are, but like I saiid, I do it all before hand anyway.

Back 4 Blood Card System... seems like a pretty big ripoff from Hand of Fate, Killing Floor 2 and some other games... it'll probably make the game more fun, but at least give credit where credit is due.

I read a couple; it sounds good enough that I will definitely get it on sale eventually. But there is some odd pricing on Steam, at least the last time I checked, the main link keeps taking you to the $79.99 version, whereas there is a $59.99 version that can't be added to the Wishlist for some reason.

Well the videos certainly look impressive... what didn't you guys like about the game? I vaguely remember a lukewarm response when it was first released, but I can't recall what specifically pissed people off.

MoreLuckThanSkill,
if you didn't use Xbox Game Pass for PC yet, try the 1st month for peanuts.
I played and enjoyed very much Zombie Army 4 (and 5 other AAA games), then canceled the subscription, of course.



If they keep pricing games like this, I'll probably end up getting forced into a subscription like that. I try to avoid those usually, but I will consider it eventually, it seems.

Although I usually at least try to install and play these games at some point.

I enjoyed ZA2 and 3, but fuck this ripoff of a 'game.'

The base game is $50, the three season passes are EACH $35, and in a new and annoying twist, even the "Super Deluxe" version for $80, does NOT include all three season passes.

I will maybe buy the GotY version in 2 years on sale for $9.99.

Yeah... I want to see a lot of movies, but I'm probably not going back to a theater ever, assuming any have even survived nearby.

Just release your movies on streaming, without months long delays or added 'premium' fees... the landscape has changed, the horse and buggy market has crashed, we no longer wear whalebone girdles, etc.

Bill Maher hasn't been entertaining in about 20 years, but it's not like he (or his writers) is/are wrong, Twitch is a complete waste of time.

How large is the download/unpacked size on drive? I'm curious as to why they even bothered with a timer instead of just limiting it by content.

Unofficial Official leak, I presume. Still cautiously interested, but I am guessing none of these next gen games are going to run at a decent framerate on my current desktop.

Don't try to coerce me into paying scalper/miner prices for a video card, DICE !

Meh, an hour long demo, with some annoying but doable workarounds. I am interested in the game, but I will most likely just skip the demo and wait for full release reviews.

So I signed up for the Newegg Shuffle... these prices have got to be well above MSRP, $3000+ for a video card and motherboard? Fuck's sake, it's cheaper just to do a custom prebuilt computer.

Interesting, I wonder if A) the guy knew before doing this, that France doesn't do extraditions, B) how likely it is that France might press charges for something similar, in their own courts, in the end. France also has notoriously violent police, so this guy might just fall up the stairs a few times.

It feels like these guys are ripping off RIOT - Civil Unrest, just a little bit.

I do like the NES level graphics for this kind of game though.

It's all fun and games until you get shot at in real life from about 8 feet away, bullet resistant glass or not. Put down the guns and start calling the cops, but of course it's REAL easy to say from the Monday Morning QB position.
