Hyper Light Drifter is a really fun indie 16-bit-ish ARPG. Highly recommended if you're into that sort of thing. Very unique in it's presentation and gameplay.

Just wanted to advise people that are emulation/Zelda fans that Hypatia has released the final version of the Wind Waker HD mod that has been in the making for 4+ years now.

http://onthegreatsea.tumblr.com/

All textures are updated and it looks fantastic on the dolphin emulator (Recommended to use the Ishiiruka Build of dolphin, as it runs faster and has additional graphics/performance tweaking options)

Funny story about Wind Waker: My first playthrough of the game was in 2008 on the GameCube, and during that time the area that I live in had the largest flood ever recorded in this region. I'm now about halfway through my 2nd playthrough of the game and we are currently having the 2nd worst flood (so far) in this region's history. The nearby river just crested at 22ft today.

The Legend of Zelda is such a magical series <3 Flood

I like this girl!

Agreed. She doesn't take herself too seriously, communicates with her viewers without going too overboard, from what I saw linked from this article. The butthurt twitch streamers think she is robbing them of followers because of her massive fanbase, and put her down for not being a "real content creator", but that's just a bunch of BS from people who are jealous of how many views/followers she gets, and not to mention is hypocritical as shit. If you had some Italian dude with a v-neck showing a bit of chest hair, do you think he would get banned? Not likely.. but then again, he most likely wouldn't have as man viewers, so people would not be as jealous of him.

She isn't doing anything racier than what you can see in any music video made in the past 2 decades. I don't see what the issue is.

This debate is going to be Trump calling Hillary weak on security and blaming Obama/Democrat policy over the past 8 years for continued terrorist events in the country. While Hilary or the moderators may try to steer the conversation towards policy and other issues besides terrorism, Trump will continually try to deflect it toward this, because that is what will get him the most votes from republicans.

The race is far from over, and the prospect of him becoming president is *very* real. There is no room for complacency here.

When capcom "fixed" this, it left the offending file on a lot of people's computers still, without the ability to delete it without going into safe mode or some other workaround.

I don't think capcom could have fucked up the release of SFV more if they tried.. 7 months since release and they still have gotten very little right besides having a competitive fighting game ready for tournaments. simple things like rebindable controls for the pc version and support for their own licensed fight sticks they sell for the PS4 (directinput) are still not there. It just boggles the mind what their priorities are right now.. releasing characters like Urien who is animated about as badly as the characters from Clay Fighters on SNES, instead of focusing on making the core game/experience solid first.

Is there a better way to bridge the retard-gap?

Well, I wouldn't call you so much a retard as a low-information voter. No need to insult someone when they can simply educate themselves. There is always hope for someone like you, and this is where you can start.

Look into Obama Administration's scandals over the past 8 years (making a deal with Iran which pretty much lets it make a nuclear bomb, and lying about negotiating with "moderates" over there, IRS-as-Stasi scandal, NSA expanded spying scandal, sacrificing Americans on American soil in Benghazi and lying about it for weeks, reporter spying, keeping the press out of the White House, violating judge's immigration orders, suppressing our border enforcement laws, destabilizing the Middle East, the VA scandal, creating a new Cold War with Russia, removing Cuba from state terror sponsor list, repeatedly inciting racial division and attacks on police, shitting on America in his speeches overseas, etc), and not just the ones covered by Pravda- sorry, I meant CNN or Reuters.

Look into his past of 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of fascist, anti-Semite Jeremiah Wright, who blessed his wedding, and his other father figure, the radical commie Frank Marshall Davis. Listen to him morally equating socialism and capitalism, and cover for the world's most militant, backward religion time and time again, all the while posing as secular.

Then step away from the media soundbytes which compress Trump's message into two words. Watch a complete speech of his. See the man who speaks off the cuff, and yet channels the common sense that has long been gone from our government. An energetic, charismatic man with a heart and street smarts, a man with a message so much more positive than anything Obama has ever droned off his teleprompter.

A man who, despite vicious attacks from the media, which programmed low-information voters like yourself to hate him, and attacks from popular conservatives and even Fox News, outmaneuvered his political competition, outmaneuvered the press, and is outmaneuvering Hillary Clinton.

These are the qualities we need in a Commander-in-Chief. What we don't need, is someone who is knowingly importing Muslim radicals into our country, which essentially makes Obama the biggest homophobe in American history. If you can't connect those particular dots, look up Wikipedia and Pew research statistics on what percentage of Muslims, similarly imported into France, Britain, Germany, UK etc, and even the ones already here, believe that homosexuality is a sin, what percentage believe in violent jihad and Sharia Law, what IS Sharia Law, etc.

Hopefully this will help you in your goal. Get informed, and godspeed.

I feel like I just watched 12 hours of fox news after reading this. It's almost as if you've reached the fabled peak of propaganda mountain. Good god, man.. I hope they're at least paying you halfway decently to syndicate such unfiltered amounts of bullshit at this level.

A lot of people that were on the fence about whether to get a Vive or wait for the touch controllers and give the Rift a try, now have a clear reason in their minds on which one they will go with. What an absolutely retarded move on Luckey's part.

now I have to pay almost as much to open a crate which awards like a slot machine

That's the thing though.. you don't "have" to pay for anything. Your fixation on cosmetic modifications to a car that will only be seen for a couple seconds at the end of a game by anyone, is simply a choice. Some people focus on the gameplay mechanics and simply playing better, others want to "pimp their ride". If the latter crowd is funding the release of free content for people who are just interested in playing the game, I think it's a successful model for everyone involved.

Of course, the game is still fun even if all the cars were the same. However, dont just disregard the cosmetic side of the game, and their encouragement to the player to consume, manage inventory, and trade-up

The new crate system is based on a gambling model, and it's not compatible with the Steam Marketplace. I can't pick the car decal I want for my $2 ride, I'll have to feed the slot machine $1.25 each time.

Psyonix has done some things right, such as no functional advantage to mods to the car and not segregating the community from modes and arenas.

But forcing its players to gamble to win the next tier of cosmetic items? I find that disappointing.

Good luck on the slots, everyone!

I don't agree with calling it gambling, which seems to be the catchword for this type of system since the CS:GO debacle.

It's like putting a quarter into one of those plastic bubble toy dispensers. Would you also consider that "gambling"? Are parents irresponsible for allowing their kids to take part in such a thing? Of course not. It's just a random reward/prize system. You may not get the one you wanted specifically, but it's up to you whether it's worth your time and money to try and do so. Gambling implies, to me, that you are wagering money to try and make more money from it. IMO not the same as this.

The biggest conglomerate of PC gamers refers to themselves as the "Glorious Master Race", so he might be on to something..

But then again, with my experience of using Xbox Live in the past; I'd say consoles have us beat in the racist department.

Yep, this is how DLC should be done for all MP focused games, so playerbase doesn't get severed.
All maps/game modes are free, cosmetic stuff paid DLC.
I wish more devs/publishers would follow what these guys are doing.

Agreed. It's refreshing when you see someone actually doing it right, especially with such a big (albeit indie) title.

Yeah me too!

It better be free. The case+key micro gambling system they've introduced exists outside the Steam Market, so it's all cash money for them.

Meanwhile servers are still crappy, with car and ball warps even with sub 100ms. Besides content, I haven't seen any updates announce improvements to the technical side of the game.

The first sentence of their announcement, which Blue also quoted, literally says free in all caps.

Also, I haven't seen the car and ball warps you're talking about even when I've played this with pings over 100 at times. You might want to make sure your local config/networking isn't messed up in any way.

DrSquick wrote on Sep 21, 2016, 22:08:
Has anyone been having crashing with the driver previous to this? In Overwatch I have been getting a "display driver stopped responding" about once an hour. I monitored GPU temp and it doesn't seem to be high temp, it maxes out at about 80C, but it sometimes crashes as low as 71. I'm hoping this new driver stops it. I'm on a 770.

That error is most likely caused by overclocking. Even if you can pass a plethora of GPU OC tests with good temps, overwatch pushes the gpu hard if you have things uncapped and is an excellent stability test for OC as a result. Even just sitting in the menu will cause this if left for a long while on a slightly unstable OC. Whoever at blizz thought >60 fps was necessary for the menus is a moron.. this just wastes electricity and generates excessive heat for no good reason. (but I guess we can just treat it as a decent OC test, if anything)

To test if this is the case, just turn off any GPU overclocking and see if you still have the problem. If that fixes it, you can try your overclock again, but limit it to *ONLY* an overclock to the core, but not memory. Test it with only the core overclock and see if you get the crash. If you don't get the crash, your memory overclock is the issue (in my case, adjusting memory OC by 25mhz fixed this crash completely). If it does still crash with just the core overclocked, then start reducing your core OC in steps until you're stable.

---------------------

Also, regarding GFE 3.0.6 (the newest version just came out a couple days ago, fixing a bunch of bugs from the 3.0 release), I had serious reservations about the fact it was forcing a login because of integral GPU features like shadowplay being only accessible by logging in, and after some further testing, it turns out this is not that big a deal.

As long as you previously logged in to GFE 3.0 once (use a burner e-mail account like throwawayemail.com or whatever, pretty simple), even if your internet goes down the overlay will still function and shadowplay will indeed still work. I had my internet down for maintenance a couple days ago and got to actually test this first-hand, and to my surprise ShadowPlay still worked like normal. There is still a catch though: I could not open GFE to turn off the overlay completely, which adds another potentially problematic issue to the mix. If you ever wanted to turn off their overlay, you would either have to log in(impossible without internet connection), or uninstall GFE/shut down it's services(which seem to start right back up). This is still terribly designed, but at least ShadowPlay is usable without an internet connection.

This is rather dumb. Blizzard.Net would have been a better pick if they wanted to insert their direct naming into it, and they already own the domain, they just aren't using it for anything.

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...

It most definitely works in the stock game. Never tried this mod, I used the glitched car in GTA:Online. I haven't even tried it in single player but I'm guessing it works the same in that as well. Because this mod changes the car handling/physics, it likely will not even work with this.

Do you guys know about "curb boosting" also? That is another trick you can use to get extra speed in pretty much any car. Doesn't work that well in the Massacro however, which is a shame cause it's one of my favorites. Basically all you do is drive with one side of your car going over curb-level height differences and then quickly swerve back onto the road (either one wheel or both wheels.. might vary depending on front/rear/all wheel drive, not sure though) and when the wheels go off the ground for this very minuscule amount of time when you're driving over them, the engine is able to rev up to higher RPM, which will increases your speed above what the max normally would be, and also accelerates your car above its normal stats. Good trick for racing, and even works with the slightly elevated reds and white striped sides that are frequently on the stunt races. Best done when going downhill, but it works on upward inclines as well.

Been having a lot of speed issues when pulling up bluesnews.com for the past 2 days. Anyone else notice general slowness in loading pages here?

Tracert shows the last couple hops sporadically timing out, and when it does ping, it's showing at nearly 300ms (my internet is 80mb down/4mb up):

6 * 270 ms 270 ms 63-218-212-170.static.pccwglobal.net [63.218.212.170]

Just throwing this out here, but the speed of your internet does not directly correlate to ping times to specific servers.

I'm well aware of that. Ping times to blues are usually under 50ms for me. Just sharing the speed of the connection I'm testing this from.
