So much hype now-days. Hashtags and other crazy crap. 15seconds of gameplay! this is important now!

I refuse to ride this hype train dammit. Too old for this sort of thing when it comes to games.

well my experience with my phone, is that its ether a look at my phone or stare off into space. Specifically when I'm traveling or waiting for something. Otherwise phone is in my pocket. It would make me look like I live off the thing to anybody passing by, but in reality it just passes the time.

So not sure what they can get from "91 undergraduate students" even more so as Cutter mentioned its not a wide enough focus group for anything.

Well you would hope it would be curated properly I imagine. They should have partnered with Nexus mods or something to make this a non-thing. But they went with there closed environment bethesda.net thing. Which means in the end you get people publishing other peoples mods as there own and no way to trace it back to the source creator. (at least, not with out a little investigation, but nobody does that, they just want the mod working)

A devils advocate thought would be Beth. is trying to knock out the Nexus all together and expand its own system. But if they are going to use the "Steam Greenlight" system of not giving a crap what stuff comes from where and just putting complete non-sense on its mod lists, then Beth. can sod right off.

News Comments > WoW Increasing Draw Distances

Well that's the sticky part, they have to try to keep the game looking good, running well, and visually appealing to alot of computer configs. Even more so for WoW which is old as hell. As much as I personally would love a super GFX overhaul of the game to like Overwatch and Doom levels of amazing...

I have to remember that they have to balance things like a person running on a GTX 1080 with everything maxed still making the game looking good. To somebody who is using a wired-up Potato as a GFX card and needs a playable frame rate.

Latency from inside the Eurozone is not much of a problem. Latency to out side of zone is a problem. Japan and Aus are still crazy high, but to the U.S. is around 110-140ms to East coast/Mid-west BF4 servers for me. Latency to things in zone are well under 50. You kinda stop noticing after a while, as its not a problem.

They have been interviewed for how they are trying to deal with Highlights and end of match highlight everyone can see.

I've have recorded proof of me being Torb, and getting end of game highlight while dead, and letting my turret do the scoring. Its a broken system.

But also the matches are so short recording a whole one with a program and saving after you can manage and edit what is cool.

News Comments > Competitive Overwatch Delayed; Balance Changes Discussed
26. Re: Competitive Overwatch Delayed; Balance Changes Discussed Jun 1, 2016, 14:39 ZeroPike1
 
D. Va has an extremely important Ultimate, the Mecha-Bomb. and sometimes its needed to break an enemy defense area. But she is a one trick pony, everything else she does... even I'm not scared of her on the field.

McCree is a dick. I've been slaughtered by that stun effect he has enough times to stay far away from him. But even that is not effective as his ultimate is an auto-aiming one hit kill move.

One thing I think needs actual addressing is having more then 1 or 2 of the same char at the same time. I ran into a 5-man Torb(Engy) team with an army of sentries to back them up. Only a D. Va Mecha-bomb could stop them as well. I really wonder if Blizz can contain the monster's they unleashed with these heroes. But at least they can see the writing on the wall when one of these characters is really crap, for better or worse.

The Warcraft movie will be the first time I go to the cinema, in person, in 14 years. Based on what he said is not good. Limited dialog complexity will aid me when I watch it in German. Its the perfect movie to go to a German Movie theater for the first time.

Sorry but you called him a schmuck and that's grounds for a lawsuit

He self-identifies as a dweeb and you have caused him considerable emotional harm.

I would love a lawsuit, we can settle just outside of court

Yup, my Mother started her laptop and I get a phone call about what to do with "this Windows 10 thing". Told her to avoid it and X-it away. But still stupidly aggressive on MS's part.

Don't you know that the preferred, approved, totally-not-obnoxious pronoun groups are as follows: he, she, one, it, they, s/he, she/he,', Elverson group, Humanist, Jee, Ney, Peh, Per, Sipvak group, Thon, Ve, Xe, Yo, zie, zir, hir, ze, mer, and Zhe?


Language conventions be damned! It's all about the feels! You just can't go around using the commonly known pronouns that are definitive. What kind of backwoods hillbilly are you? Rolleyes

Users who exceed these caps in any given month will automatically have to pay for 50 GB of additional data for $10 each. Following a tactic pioneered by Comcast, AT&T's also now charging customers $30 a month extra if they want to avoid usage caps entirely. That is unless you're also a DirecTV or AT&T U-Verse TV customer, in which case AT&T is waiving the $30 fee.

That is such a scumbag tactic, to keep people paying for TV services. But well most of the Internet Industry is scum filled already, whats another drop in the bucket, right?

You do realize you can just say "the person" instead of trying to hide a shitty insult referring to another human being as it. right? Best not to forget people are human at the least.

It seems to be a classic problem of worker title in the US which is its own worst enemy. Being labeled a contractor means your job payment changes. Its a bad system, and this is just a result of a larger problem.

For a US company Valve was very good in this case. I do tend to think the person should have been reading the fine print on what the person's new work from home payment rates would be.

Sometimes you can really just forget how having cable installed can rely on your house electrical wiring.

My old house was super weird. I had a cable modem and a router hooked up to wall socket. But whenever the Houses' electric water pump came on my equipment would under-volt and drop connection for a millisecond.

Thankfully they finally sent out 4 techs at once and they managed to solve the problem somehow. Was ages ago I forgot how.

Because it makes peoples E-peens bigger having there results bars slightly bigger then somebody else's. As long as your rocking solid high-frame rates and the games looking super good, I find squeezing a couple extra frames-per-second a null point.

The joys of turning your PC over to random people to help fix it. And then leaving them alone with it. Of course they are going to wander around peoples files. The more exposed on the file tree's or desktop the more likely they are to click it out of curiosity.

How many times I used to fix my friends and families computers and find "weirdly" named files and links. But I kept it to myself, but its super hard not to notice when your trying to fix a PC.

I might be confusing this with Boxer's. Those weirdo's that have 5 accounts running on the same PC and are all tied together with scripts. Meaning they basically are nearly unstoppable rolling death squads.

If that's the case then I'm more then happy to takes blizz's side. But they often stated that its ok, and why not you got one guy paying 4X more to play the same game per month. Even if he buys coins for playtime.

But if its just the typical term botter. people who let scripts run there chars completely while they alt-tab and play something else, or whatever it is they do.

I dunno, if Botter's are not allowed why are boxer's then? To me there both on the edge of the rules. And both are going against the idea that one person = one char(logged in at a time). Like normal people have. They really look like they have unfair advantages. But Blizz will do whatever they want anyways.

Really hoping ATI pulls a nice card out of its hat soon. I would like to switch back to them. NV is producing good numbers on these tests, but the card costs are getting way out of control.

And as Mentioned, no you cannot take anything ARS posts as legit. The whole article is somebody parroting what NV tells them to say. Not really any legit findings aside from maybe the % pics and even those are not telling, just some quick reference stuff.

I'm waiting for my preferred site to do a in-depth, in house review of the card to see how my opinion should be.

it's TF3. deal with it

Not at all if you actually bothered playing TF you would notice the difference right away and not call it TF3. But whatever it takes for your opinion to be the best right?
