Unless they remake Duck Hunt as Clusterduck. Or a hockey game: Clusterpuck. Or a vacuum simulator: Clustersuck.

Well played, good sir.

I'm guessing that last one has already been turned into a movie. And that it didn't star a vacuum cleaner...

Well, that was just her nickname.

Not a bad looking mouse, far less gaudy than most. 2400 dpi is impressive, although a lot of these mice just use a multiplier to get "higher dpi", resulting in a cursor that cannot be moved pixel-by-pixel. Hopefully Biostar didn't do that, but...most mice at this price do that.

I tried to get away from Razer, but after trying several other brands, ended up back with them again, on a Mamba. SteelSeries, EVGA, a few ridiculous no-names. Nope. Couldn't get the basics of "actually works, reliably". Not a fan of having software logging in just to use my mouse, but honestly...fuck it, whatever. Everything phones home anymore.

Easily the best right here:

It's replaced my amazing M570.

Russia, China and IRAN are members of the "new ICANN". Chinese "new ICANN" office is in the same building as their vast Internet censorship brigade.

America has been the beacon of freedom in the world, compared to pretty much any other country. It invented the Internet, it built its initial infrastructure, and it should've remained the gatekeeper.

Obama's relinquishing ICANN to an international body is sabotage. If this made "no technical difference" to the function of the Internet, and was "purely clerical", he wouldn't have bothered. Internet censorship is part of this man's agenda, as he has proven to be a dictator through and through. This child-king jailed a filmmmaker (Dinesh D'Souza) for making a critical movie about him. He has a thin skin, and would love nothing more than to shut down those pesky dissenters. "Fairness doctrine", anyone? So, there will be, in fact, a functional decline in the Internet freedom, even if it won't be immediately obvious.

And of course, after Obama is booted out of the White House (which will need to be thoroughly bleached), he will do his utmost to secure a position at the UN, and "contribute" to the future of the Internet in that way.

Ted Cruz is a patriotic man who is following his conscience, despite being mocked by our Soviet-style government-media complex. God bless him and godspeed.

Oh Jesus fucking christ. I didn't think these kinds of morons were gamers. Fucking hell. It's permeating and infecting everything. Humanity is doomed.

I've been pro-nvidia for a long time, but I may switch to AMD to combat the Win10 bullshittery. I also think that Vulkan is a way better solution than DX12. It's not looking good for AMD at the moment though...

And what would you change to? AMD has literally nothing that can compete, and I don't see Vega being capable enough to compete with Volta. They'll be lucky if it matches the GTX 1080.

Funny, I really have not found any issues with Windows 10, while the windows 7 PC continually has issues.

As to the Nvidia bundle, until the prices comes down on the 1070 I will stick with my 960, I still run practically everything on high.

I have to use a Windows 10 laptop at work. Holy fuck it's atrociously bug-ridden.

I use three monitors. Wanna lock Windows when you go to the restroom? Fuck you and your window positions. Now they're all on your center screen just for shits and giggles. Hey, remember that time you had Photoshop on your right display? NEITHER DO I!

Auto-hide start bar? WHAAAT?! Fuck that. I'm gonna forever-hide it so you have to use the windows key or ctrl+esc to get it to show up. And then, sometimes, it will just fucking disappear while the start menu still stays visible. PROGRESS!

Every now and then, let's just turn random elements in your programs BLACK so you can't fucking see them. Sure, we'll blame it on your video adapter drivers, but these are the latest ones and who cares about supporting industry standard hardware?

Oh, remember how you locked your PC earlier? You forgot to turn off wifi first, so, now, when you try to log in, I'm gonna attempt to connect to wifi using the credentials you just entered. WHOA! You made a typo! I can't connect. Fuck it, I'll still try logging you into your PC. HOLY FUCK!!! Remember that typo from a second ago? Yeah, there goes two of your three domain group policy login attempts. Better get it right on the second try, or you're locked the fuck out. Your IT department must really love this switch to Windows 10 with the hugely inflated lockout incidences versus 7.

Oh, you don't want Windows Store enabled or Cortana tracking every move you make? Okay, fine. Then you just can't use search from the start menu anymore. FUCK YOU! You have to find your control panel settings and installed programs yourself! MUAHAHAH!!! That'll teach you to turn off useless bloat. >:/

I've been playing this all afternoon, really give's "the worse"'s WD_1 mod a run for it's money, GTA V Finally looks and plays like I've wanted it to. Still a couple wonky things happening, the new road textures like to pick and choose when they're streaming in, it's a real mess when flying a chopper above the city.... but other than that it looks great, runs great, and the driving handling alone is worth the upgrade. Feels a LOT more like GTA IV episodes from Liberty city now, cars have weight, you can Finnish Flick them around corners and dodge through traffic. And maybe I haven't played it in a while, but the fast cars seem faster. Like you have to really watch your speed when maneuvering, you're not just flooring it the whole time.

If you want to test your control with a fast car, get the RE-7B with the carbon spoiler and stock tires/rims. There is a glitch with that particular combination that makes it easily the fastest vehicle in the game. Races can actually be quite a bit harder with it because many of the tracks were just not made for that kind of speed in mind. It's a great car all around, even if you choose not to glitch the speed.

I assume that just works with this mod and not the stock game...

Guardians looks terrible. Horribly cheesy, contrived storyline, shitty b-movie special effects, no-name actors, dumb makeup, guaranteed waste of time. Have fun though! XD

12GB on that sucker? Jeebus.

can't really have any other amount, perhaps 9GB, but that's unlikely. Also, no way it's normal GDDR5 when the 1080 has GDDR5X.

There is really no point in this. The 1080 is probably just as fast. There's very little room to squeeze another SKU in between the Titan XP and 1080. It would be dumb as fuck to buy a card right now, at least if you're looking at the top end, since Volta is practically right around the corner.

Yet another excellent reason to switch to uBlock Origin. I did several months ago, and haven't looked back. I used ABP for years, and uBlock is MUCH better. I do not miss AdBlock at all.

Welp, there's one way to keep up on your rent. That's how Samsung will pay for their Note 7 recall. Sell shit you don't even really care about to some idiot who is willing to pay way too much for it, use profits from sale to fix your fuck up. Smart.

I executed my plan in 2007... cord cut.

Every year I say I am going to do this...and every year Comcast gives me another "one year bundle" that somehow manages to be only slightly more expensive than getting my content through entirely Internet means. I like the Comcast DVR and On-Demand features/systems so the minimal expense seems very much worth it. More importantly, my wife demands that whatever we do it is really simple to use. Remote control simple. One of these years Comcast will make an offer that is too high and my wife will be willing to deal with added complexity to save the money....but as long as that bundle basically caters to folks who prioritize convenience nearly as highly as the content itself, I am not sure it's going to happen in this household.

Yet another reason to never get married...

ps4 pro - please stop that 4k capable nonsense, with the hardware it got its just a 1080p console full stop. Pr people are delusional.

Nonsense, I decided to test this lately using a GTX 1060 which is around the power offered by the PS4 pro for 4k. My findings have been pretty interesting.

Witcher 3, 4k DSR all settings on Ultra except foliage distance ( high ), shadows ( high ), grass distance ( high ) and gimpworks ( off ). Postprocessing all off except light shafts, SSAO, Blur, Chromatics. FPS cap at 30 adaptive sync @ half refresh rate ( 60hz/2 ).

Results? Mostly rock solid 30fps across the board, very playable, very few noticeable tearing = few drops below 30. That's without intrinsic commands, that's without async, without Vulkan or DX12, without any targeted console optimizations and direct to metal coding.

So, will they have games which were running @ 1080p/30fps on the PS4 running @ 4k/30fps on the PS4 pro? The answer is an easy yes. Will the games running @ 60 fps in 1080p run @ 60 fps in 4k? Again, yes.

At this point, if the Xbone Scorpio is indeed 50% faster than the PS4 pro, could they with a few tweaks get the games which were running @ 30 fps upscaled to 1080p on the original Xbone to run @ 4k native, or the very least, 4k upscaled from say 3325x1871 ( which is about 3 times as many pixels as 1080p instead of 4x for 4k ) @ 60fps? Highly probable.

You see the problem with PC mindset right now is that most have lost the age old art of tweaking settings minimizing eye candy loss and maximizing perf, like they must absolutely run at 60fps or more with everything maxed.

I've been tweaking settings for 20 years now, ever since the first 3Dfx card hit the market. I've got it down to a damn art, I ain't shy about fiddling around with ini files, mods, whatever. And if I can make Witcher 3 run 30fps@4k on a GTX1060 without all the advantages listed above of console optimizations, without access to what the developers have access to tweak their settings ( sometimes even dynamically, dynamic res amongst others, I'm looking at you with envy, get your ass over to the PC ) to hit a particular performance while minimizing eye candy loss. Why wouldn't they be able to?

I don't think this is delusion kid. 20 years of experience and a bit of messing around tweaking Witcher 3 with, relatively speaking, very limited means attests to it.

The question isn't IF its going to happen, but HOW its going to happen.

I can almost feel the spittle and chunks of Doritos hitting the screen as you spouted that self-important, ego-stroking diatribe. Ever thought about shaving your neck and hitting the gym once in a while? It could do your misplaced anger and less-than-optimal health some good, not to mention give you a little perspective on your priorities in life.

Re: Project Ara

I totally saw that coming. There's no way that would have ever worked. Insurmountable technical issues to deal with. Limited design capability due to the modules having to fit within an established standard for each type of module, etc. Dumb fucking idea, especially considering most people just buy a whole new phone after a couple of years, or less.
