What the hell, suing the users for $18 million? Is that a joke?

For negative reviews? I swear Congress just passed a law relating to retribution against negative reviews on Yelp or something, like a week or two ago. (in the US)

Yeah, I heard a snippet of that too, but can't remember the details. It's absurd!

Happy Friday all!

Okay, so my wife and I just finished plowing through the HBO miniseries 'The Night of'. All and all, we really liked it, but certain aspects of the show felt rushed, which I would guess was due to budget constraints. That's where creative editing comes in, which was well done too.

Now I anxiously await the premier of Westworld.

1. Nvidia GTX 1080Ti Specification leak? Sep 15, 2016, 20:01 MajorD
 

HHHMMMMMM.....I wonder how legit it is; 4GB more of VRAM vs vanilla 1080, higher power consumption, and lower base & boost frequencies. /shrug

I've always/still download GeForce Drivers from Nvidia w/o any login, do a custom install and choose the minimum (Graphics Driver and PhysX System Software only), uncheck the rest of the bloatware, and walla!

Regardless, it is pretty much a moot point with all the other information that is gathered by a lot of other devices/software everyone uses: Google, Apple, Microsoft (whipping boy), Creative, etc. etc.

Granted, you can be conscientious of what you're installing, settings, what you're agreeing to, etc., but living in this day and age, there is going to be data collection one way or another.

Please pass the beer nuts......

1. Re: Best CPU for gaming guide - PCGamesN Sep 14, 2016, 12:15 MajorD
 

Still running strong with my i7-2600K overclocked at 4.9Ghz. With video card upgrades, I have had no need to upgrade CPU/MB. I'll probably be able to get away with 'one more' video card upgrade (GTX-1080ti) before I'll have to upgrade my CPU/MB/Memory.

Apparently it was, for people that didn't know any better.

...it was 'figuratively speaking', as in 'No contest!'.

....."For that reason I'm going to be pretty coy about exact specifics of it - also because of expectations and how experimental we are at the moment. I need to be deliberately coy....

So why bring any of this up in the first place then Dean?

If you don't get the copy i wouldn't sweat it.
From what I've seen the pc remastered rereleased version don't look that different from the original, another reason why it's probably free if you own the game

Any comparison shots remaster vs normal version yet?

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bioshock/comments/4qio3c/bioshock_remaster_comparison_screenshots/

Thanks for those, the comments in that thread align with my thoughts.
I did not see where it said if those were console or pc shots. In a few days we will know

To me, it looks like nothing more than a SweetFX/ReShade injector version.

Well, it sounds like this game is potentially a flop, which is too bad, as I was looking forward to it making up for the shortcomings and abrupt ending of the first one. Both had potential.....

In the longer run, we'll need "quantum-safe" cryptography tools, he said, including protocols that can run on conventional technologies and resist quantum attacks.

Wow, yeah, I guess that would be a serious concern, among others. Interesting......

Just finished Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Seriously, the ending sucked balls. Felt like the game ended about 3/4 of the way through. Also the credits roll on for about 15 minutes and there is no way to stop them other than to CTRL+ALT+DEL and force the program to shut down...I mean they roll on so long that the ending "theme" song loops about 3 times...

We're proud of our work! You WILL watch every name who built this best game in history!

Yeah, and I even wouldn't mind that so much if the ending was a satisfying conclusion to the story. But damn, its like (without spoilers) thats it? For fuck's sake they even got Adam Jensen griping about not being done with anything in the last cutscene, and if that's not the height of irony I don't know what is...

That's the 'hook' to get Gamers to purchase the DLC. Shrewd acts of Publishers at their best!

Yup, and I think the UK still has the most video surveillance per captita than any other country.

Yup, been a concern of mine since day one when I first got a car with Bluetooth. I had to go into car's settings and delete my profile, but still had a concern there were breadcrumbs.

Same goes for public charging stations.

Where the hell have you been? We're still here. Older and curmudgeonly-er...


Honest question: With Prez presumed dead but now apparently alive (or is he?), are we still divvying up his steam account????

He may be pulling a Redwood, so we may not see him again for another three or four years.

She was the PTA mom everyone knew. Who would want to harm her?

The schadenfreude is strong with this one.

man that was such a bizarre story, like, what is wrong with someone that they would risk an opulent life in the 'burbs in the name of petty revenge.

and, as a frequent visitor of irvine, it really is lowkey creepy urbanism as fuck.

At least there's some ethnic diversity in Irvine. Try going to Aliso Viejo: same creepy urbanism, but the men are all white and the women are all peroxide blondes.

That's pretty much South Orange County as a whole, in comparison to the original/old north Orange County where you can paint your house pink with purple trim and let your lawn grow into a jungle if you want.

Blah blah blah....spin it how you want Ass Hats, but there is no excuses for pushing out an expansion pack for a game still in early access, as it is shameful and you deserve all the backlash you're getting!!

Verno wrote on Sep 6, 2016, 10:38:
"Now that we've been able to do this once, we'll be able to do it easier in the future" This whole post is really begging for that Sinclair quote about a man not understanding something when his salary depends on it.

i think most of the hate for this game is completely unfounded. It's easily one of the best survival games, period. Tweak your graphics options, you CAN run this game well.

I disagree, most of the "hate" is people upset that they continue pushing ahead with new charged content while the game remains poorly optimized and unfinished. Sure, you can dial down your settings and make it playable but it shouldn't run this poorly on good hardware.

Cutter wrote on Sep 6, 2016, 11:41:
No, you finish your main fucking product first before releasing anything subsequent to it. I'm glad there's been such overwhelming negative feedback to this. Perhaps it's the kick in the ass these jerks need to focus and finish the fucking game.
