Happy Anniversary!

Also, 4/20 was *definitely* a thing 21 years ago, and I can attest to this first-hand growing up on the east coast, we 'celebrated' both the am/pm and the calendar day. I remember my first time seeing a Thai stick was on a 4/20 in the early nineties, and being blown away that it was literally the size of an adult arm. It really depends on the group you got down with, but many of us 'celebrated' it back then.

Glad to hear about Nintendo's success. They really needed it after the huge WiiU flop.

A buddy of mine gifted this to me last year, played it once and didn't think much of it. The mechanics just felt way off and unintuitive. Maybe things have changed a bit since then, I'll give it another go this weekend with the f2p noobs.

The phenomenon called R* is what always has me wondering why there's no real hating toward these fuckers.

I'm sure the internet is primed and ready to go on this hateventure with you. They just needed a proper leader to raise the hate banner, and arm the hate cannons, so we can show these evil bastards what for!

Seriously though, the only division of rockstar that I have any issues with is Toronto, for the abomination that is GTA IV on PC. Yeah maybe there's something to be said for some dislike towards the San Diego team for not releasing the RDR series on PC yet, but I don't know that was entirely their decision either.

Something about this black and white shit we all seem to be so deeply entrenched in is really tiring to me. It's like there's no middle ground anymore.. you either love something or hate it. It's like hearing people use words like "epic" to describe every somewhat interesting or cool situation they witness. Vernacular hyperbole. Instead of a laugh, now "I'm dying". Instead of saying you were disappointed in something you did or articulating any sort of feeling, now we have "I'm literally going to kms (kill myself)". What is language going to be like in a couple decades, once we've desensitized ourselves significantly by using the most extreme language possible to describe everything around us? Why am I ranting about this? I don't fuckin' know. Time for sleep.

I'm usually a fan of all varieties of racing, but there is absolutely nothing redeemable about this game mode. Worst one yet.

Windows 10, still free.

Never stopped being free as I'm pretty sure the accessibility promotion is still going on. Do you use magnifier or onscreen keyboard? Congrats, go get yourself an upgrade to Winblows10!

And now hackers are stealing your money. In a matter of seconds, you can have your account drained. Whee. I lost millions last night because some prick decided he deserves to be shot in the face fifty times with a shoulder mounted rocket launcher in real life. I spent AGES earning that money. And now it's gone almost instantly. Fuck this game. Rockstar doesn't ever do shit about the hackers. And they only exist because of their shitty peer-to-peer netcode. Dumb.

Report what happened to support, and you will get your money back if it was legitimately earned.

I wonder if they ever fixed the crazy load times in multiplayer making it soo annoying to play yet

Nope.

But it is much faster loading into SP, then joining a private MP match, THEN joining a public match.. if so inclined.

God, they better treat RDR 2 and the future better than this. I like that there were mods, but GTA online was handled very poorly. Especially PC.

Use the command line argument -StraightIntoFreemode (or create a 2nd shortcut to the launcher with this command line argument) and you will launch into multiplayer without wading through menus. Takes 2-3 minutes tops for me to get into a lobby.

cross play with windows store is not supported. what kind of fucking clowns thought that system was going to work? probably the same fucks who made that looneytunes drm scheme and decided kinect was a good idea to force upon everyone who bought the original xb1

Thanks Mordecai and Blue! I don't think I've ever won something by lottery before?

Will report on my personal impressions of the Beta.

Also thanks for remembering my last nick (InBlack) Heh

You will be under NDA so that is probably best left to the private QC forums, for now.

Congrats!

We should have an update soon hopefully on who the two winners are, in the meantime I just want to remind everyone who uses ad blockers to add BluesNews to their exception list and/or disable them for this site specifically.

Blue has been serving up that fresh un-cut news on a daily basis for 20+ years now, and has never sold out to the dark side of malicious or intrusive/pop-up advertising. If you want to see quality sites like this continue to thrive in the ocean of sell-out mediocrity and clickbait, then show your support by taking this small step.

I'm not affiliated with this site in any way.. just a long time visitor who has seen many quality sites come and go, bought and paid for by media conglomerates and malicious advertisement agencies. Making the internet great again starts with YOU! Builder Bobby Biker Cowboy Crown Computer

Blues News is very much a part of Quake to me, so it is a fitting place to hand out a beta key or two for the newest entry in the series to a couple of you loons. Allthumbsup

Good luck & happy fragging!

It'll be very interesting to see where Microsoft prices it. If they're smart, they price it the same as the PS4 Pro, eat the loss on hardware and try to claw back market share.

But since it's Microsoft, I'm going to guess it's just as likely that they go "Well, it costs us $650 to make (number listed in an article I read), so we'll sell for $700."

So, hmmm.

$400-500 is a safe bet. I'm guessing closer to $400. They always take a loss on hardware because it is more than made up by software and licensing fees.

Got some spare beta key love to spread here at blues, just don't know how to go about doing so. Figured I should share here instead of somewhere like reddit.. any ideas? Can't just paste it in comments or forum because a bot will pick it up and sell it on ebay or mmochamps, most likely.

Completely lost any interest when they started discussing the downsides to this monitor/oled. For $3500 there better not be any fucking downsides.

That's a steam group you likely joined to get some freebie in the game like everyone else did. And like anyone else who is in a steam group that sends out notifications too often for your liking, you are free to leave it at any time. I fail to see what this has to do with the switch version or anything else besides your inability to act sooner when an issue with steam was interrupting your system when it was open.

So out of curiosity, what do they mean by smurfing? Deliberately losing?

Not deliberately losing, that's de-ranking. Smurfing is when you buy a 2nd account and start from scratch to be paired against noobs. Many top 500 players have smurf accounts that they play on the side, some even have multiple accounts in the top 500.
