What the fuck is with these tiny displays these days? 27 inches for 5k? That's way the fuck too small. Minimum 40 inches for 4k is the sweet spot. These tiny monitors are a ridiculous waste.

To be honest, it looks boring as fuck. That whole first part was scripted to hell too. The entire thing could be. Doesn't seem interesting to me one bit. Consoles have ruined gaming.

This is quite the screw up by Samsung but I don't want to see them go under because of it. My computer is probably 30% samsung at this point, monitor, ssd drives, memory, laser printer. I also have a Samsung Tablet that is pretty nice.


They have 300 billion in annual revenue. They can survive this.

Yeah even if they got out of mobile entirely, they'd be completely fine.

I remember when NMS was announced that I called bullshit on it and was shouted down. I tried to explain that what they were promising literally couldn't happen on the hardware we have available to us today. Man, was I shouted down. It's nice, though, to see what a dumpster fire this has become and having stayed the Hell away from it.

Nah the hardware wasn't really a factor, they just had limited templates due to the small size of the team. Through clever use of instancing they were able to execute on the premise which was traveling around the galaxy and seeing a lot of unique planets. You didn't need a lot of hardware because you never load in everything at once. Where they failed was in gameplay execution and the limited variety of templates used for generation.

Put differently they didn't fail because of CPU cores or memory, they failed because they didn't have a giant team of artists generating assets and didn't really finish gameplay subsystems. No Man's Sky was simply boring and shallow.

Exactly. I knew this would be a ridiculous waste of time too. Sure, you can iterate over a list of assets and put things together to make them look slightly different, but without a huge swath of items to choose from, you're extremely limited in what you can do.

Until we come up with some kind of artificial intelligence routines that create assets for us, based on a set of criteria and telling the computer what kinds of traits a lifeform has and what kinds of traits a structure has, a planet, a vehicle, etc., then allowing the computer to calculate all these things and randomly iterate assets from the ground up, there is no way everything will be 100% random. Minecraft managed to create something compelling because it didn't focus on lots of different kinds of creatures in the world. It was the world that was calculated, and that's a whole lot more easy to do since you don't really need a team of artists in charge of creating things for that.

That wired article, a-fucking-men

Presence of a non-removable battery in later phones is a major reason I still haven't switched from my Note 4.

They will not make the same mistake with the Note 8. And hopefully they learn to go back to flat screens instead of that bullshit, usability-limiting gimmick of the curved edges, and they bring back a replaceable battery and IR blaster. Those things are the reasons that kept me from jumping on the Note 7. Then the battery issue happened, and it made me glad that I'm picky and don't compromise on my standards.

Is there anyone left from Blues that's playing this on the PC?

Definitely. I've never seen any Blue's News crew online though. I stopped playing for several months due to the hackers. Now most of them are gone and it's fun as hell to play again. The rare occurrence of a hacker is not nearly as annoying these days. No more spawning sperm whales and tankers on top of you or dropping billions of dollars from heaven. Just the rare aimbotter here and there, which is nowhere near that big of a deal in this game since it's so large.

You need to try the stunt events they added an update or two back. Great fun.

Militant Atheists love Tyson. The same guy that used to work for George W. Bush.

Ahh, religion. The last bastion of the closed mind, and the source of great ridicule by intelligent humans.

I'm not sure I'd want any more "powerful surprises" from Samsung at this point.

Didn't you know they've recently hired Michael Bay to help with their upcoming projects? At least he hates dumb fucking retarded-ass curved-edge screens just as much as the rest of us.

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.
