In Windows 7 you were not a real admin until you disabled UAC and magically got "real" admin privileges. In Win 8.1 you're pushed one step further - you need to disable UAC and then edit security policies. In Win 10 you may think you're admin, but your preferences do not matter, they can be reverted at any moment, and things will be done behind your back.

Most of the shit you post is crazy... but this is just hilariously wrong on multiple levels.

Stop using up all the tinfoil, some others here still need hats.

News Comments > PC Destiny Still Possible

When Halo 1 was released it basically had zero competition and that was a major reason for it's success and popularity. The epitomes of FPS-Story (Halflife) and FPS-Combat (UT/Q3) were both 2-3 years old at that point. Attempting to compare them is pretty pointless, especially given the rapid advancements in technology around that time period.

You could compare Halo 2 and HL2 (and maybe UT2k4), released in 2004... I'd still pick HL2 every time. HL2 mods CS:S/CS:GO and TF2 are still crazy popular to this day. UT2k4 multiplayer... enough said.

Halo 1-3 won the "console FPS war" in dorm rooms, their success entirely hinged around their multiplayer. Their campaigns got more convoluted and worse with every release... and even Halo 3 multiplayer still didn't really hold a candle to what Q3 Arena/UT were doing 8 years prior. If you think it did, you probably play a lot of console games.

Then Reach came out and Bungie/Halo you knew was dead.

More people would have a favorable opinion of the early Halo franchise if all of the ports to PC weren't such terrible shit.

So glad I never got into drinking coffee. When I drink anything with caffeine in it I notice right away.

Not the first time I've seen a study come across that says that drinking coffee in the morning is pointless and that you would be "just as awake" a half hour later anyway.

It really depends on what number they are pulling from howlongtobeat.com. Games like Clicker Heroes/Time Clickers, Kerbal Space Program, Football Manager, Space Engineers have hundreds of hours in their entries depending on the category. Harvest Moon says 2000 hours(?!) to completion...

He still must have an absurd amount of games, but apparently also all of the long ones :p

Why would you pay $60?
Why do people keep saying this?!
THE GAME IS ONLY $40!!

If you paid $60 for the console version (lol) or the extra fluff.... then you deserve to be out that extra $20 :p

What is the mental block around the price of Overwatch. It costs $40. No one is referring to a console version. Sony and MS protect that price point dearly.

Your impatience for changes you prefer does not sway me. If you don't like the maps that is a personal preference I don't agree with.

@Liberty - No one is flying off any handles, stop being dramatic.

Having played both games extensively, I simply do not understand what you mean.

TF2 launched with 6 maps. Some people played considerably less maps, congregating on 2fort/CP/KOTH-only servers. People (presumably you) played those 6 maps repeatedly for a year before any new ones came out.

Overwatch has literally twice as many maps and 3 times the character classes that TF2 had at launch.

Held off on this one because the gameplay seems so surface (no depth).

What the hell does that even mean?

21 different classes to choose from vs 9 with "item drops"... yeah. I don't think you understand "depth".

I would guess that they will eventually drop weapon mods or replacements. TF2 survived for how many years without them? Completely unnecessary.

Remember when he said he was going to release crippling information and sue them out of existence? How's that working out for you? Still holding on to it for the imaginary lawsuit you aren't filing?

Some people are just not crazy until they are. Blaming it all on mental health is a good way to hide from the other things that could be changed to limit exposure and accessibility to cause such chaos.

I'd still like them to include a simple scoreboard on TAB or something, where I can see individual frag counts.

No! I hope they never, ever add this. The lack of a K:D ratio being displayed is the only thing keeping people remotely focused on objectives.

Pointing at people using words like "weak" and "lame" to criticise something rather than anything with substance wasn't the best idea.

It's not realistic, the cars will merge into lanes well before and cause "stupid traffic" when there's clearly lanes available to forward progress.

Have you ever driven a car before? People tend to do exactly the dumbest thing possible at all times. Roads and traffic patterns are hardly ever laid on in the "most logical way possible" due to land rights and such, so maybe it's a touch of realism in a different way.

Turn AA off and see if it stops crashing. That always seemed to fix Gamebryo engine crashes for me if I messed with any HD texture packs or modified the ini's too much.
