Anyone else in SoCal? All this forecast in the news of a major rain storm and so far it's barely drizzling. I was looking forward to heavy rainfall.
Wait for it...

I tried playing this game a year or so ago, and it was so poorly optimized that I struggled to get 30 FPS with everything cranked super low, even with a half decent system that can run other new games with everything maxed.

Does anyone know if that has been resolved? I did enjoy the few hours I could play. The leveling system is definitely interesting.

According to the Steam FPS thingie, I'm getting between 40 and 60 fps at 1920x1080 (depending on how much is happening). I'm using a I7 laptop with a GTX 960 graphics card. My settings are medium to low for most everything but it still looks pretty good.

Edited to add: I'm playing on a LAN with a dedicated server. So for single player mode, your mileage may vary.

Ah, yes. The greatest quarterback of all times. 49ers 4ever!!!
At least until next Sunday. As much as I hate to admit it, if Brady wins next week, he'll supplant Montana as number one.

Aaron Rodgers is currently the best QB there's ever been. Brady is up there I'll grant you but that's more about a rock solid team, coaching, and cheating. Yes, the cheating matters too. Had Rodgers ended up in Beantown they'd have never lost a Superbowl yet. Rodgers is it and it's not up for debate. There's a universal consensus on that by any honest football fan.


In the '80's and early '90's , you could make the same argument about Dan Marino. His physical tools were unbelievable. His stats were completely off the charts. If Marino was on the 49'ers would he have had won more Superbowls than Joe? Maybe, maybe not. But who do we consider the greatest QB from that era?

For a number of years Tiger Woods played the best golf this planet has ever seen. Until he hits or exceeds 18 Major championships, Jack Nicklaus will continue to be the greatest ever.

Not possible, dude. There is more to it than statistics and yards thrown and all that shit. There is also personality, presence on the field and charisma. Montana was a one of a kind leader and extremely versatile with nary a weakness. The guy is rightfully a fookin' legend.

Brady is an awesome QB but he ain't Montana. He's also not as versatile and thanks to how football has developed probably way less natural than Montana, i.e. I'm talking about doping. I'm not saying that Montana never did drugs but Brady has access to much better shit these days so Montana's achievements rate higher from a historical perspective.

The same goes for physical therapy and nutrition plans etc.
Everything is just so much more professional these days. Modern QBs have it a lot easier than Montana's generation and still most ain't able to hold a candle to JM's achievements or even if they can and get close, well, there's the insurmountable personality barrier. The modern clowns don't even begin to compare to DA LEGEND!

I grew up a 49er's fan. After years of seeing our QB's like Brodie and DeBerg getting worked by the Rams and Cowboys, one of the happiest moments I ever had as a fan was Montana hitting Clark to beat the Cowboy's. There's been no doubt in my mind that to this point, Joe Montana is the G.O.A.T.

To me, when the quarterback is the leader of the team, the amount of championship rings is the weightiest stat. And there's no doubt in the case of Montana and Brady, they were/are their teams leaders. One can argue era's, systems, teammates (other than Randy Moss for about five seconds, did Brady ever have a receiver like Jerry Rice?), etc. But the players can only play the hand they're dealt. So the arguments that Brady has access to better training, nutrition, softer rules, etc. doesn't work because all of today's quarterbacks are playing in the same conditions. Yet Brady has more success.

So next Sunday I'll be rooting for the Falcons, However, if the Patriots win, I gotta recognise...

This actually looks really good, I'm down for at least a sale price buy.

Am I the only one that didn't like the original Prey game that much? It irks me slightly that they are using the same title, but Human Head studios is still around, doing other things, and they never owned the IP anyway. Plus it's been like 11 years.

I don't think I liked it much either. I vaguely remember installing the discs. After that, nothing.

We can hope.

In any case, Hillary already showed that you can just do whatever-the-hell you want with regards to digital security and never get more than a stern frown, so eh. Trump could post the nuclear codes on pastebin and the FBI would just go "tut tut."


It could be argued the hubris shown by Hillary, et al., over the 'home brew' server wound up costing her place in history as the first woman president. That 'I'm above the law' arrogance was the reason I didn't vote for her. (Note: I couldn't vote for Trump either Confused ).

Glad to hear MrsBlue is ok.
Remember not to take the first insurance offer, I've heard that they are low-balling bastidges on the first go-around.

Thanks for the suggestion, I didn't know such things were open to negotiation. This is a first accident for either of us, so I'm unfamiliar with the process.

Yup, argue with them to the point of exhaustion. Go online and find cars that are similar or same as though you were going to buy them, and have that data ready. Find the high ball offers and present those to the insurance company. When they start bucking, say you need access to your vehicle to get somethings from it, and they will cut you a check - cause the car is LOOOONG GONE!

Also Blue, if all the bags went off and it has structural damage, Mrs might "feel" it tomorrow as the adreno wears off. Make sure to get her checked out if she feels crummy. Can have injuries unknown until bigger problems start.

I'm glad too Mrs. Blue seems to be OK. Although, it couldn't hurt for her to get a checkup. As others have suggested, the adrenaline and possible shock can mask injuries. I didn't know I'd broken a bone in my hand until several days after an accident.

Also, if you feel the slightest bit like the insurance companies are dicking you around, get a lawyer. Even one of those T.V. lawyers. Insurance companies have all kinds of 'reasons', scripts and other tricks designed to get out of paying you fairly.

This is a fun tool for learning guitar (and bass) parts. I wish they would have added the 'career' mode that was available in the original, original Rocksmith (i.e. not the original Rocksmith 2014). Adding some Van Halen or Led Zeppelin DLC tracks would open my wallet and crank my PC speakers up to 110%.


There is a massively thriving customDLC scene for Rocksmith.

http://customsforge.com/

You'll find Van Halen & Led Zeppelin in there. THey take down tracks that have official versions but otherwise there are thousands of tracks. You need to own Cherub Rock DLC though for it to work.

Thanks. I'll for sure check it out.

Ah, so now that it's over I can look forward to the Blu-ray release since I haven't seen any of the new season yet.
After hearing all the good things about this season, I decided to get the HBO Now subscription. It's only $14.99 for a month. Once I re-watch the season, I'm going to cancel or (if they allow it) suspend it until next year.

Cutter, I never figured you to be that optimistic. The insurance companies will get theirs as long as there are politicians to buy.

By George the giraffes giant gems, you may be on to something!

Personally, I've been partial to the peanut butter pronunciation. That's the same way as Steve Wilhite, the inventer of GIF, says here(about 30 seconds into the video).

I'm not sure what the guy in Blue's link was on about but I got bored after about 90 seconds.

There is no 'best experience' with everquest anymore when after 10+ years people are still camping out rooms in lower Guk.

LOL must get those boots!

EDIT: Oh wait...that was Najena. Damn. So much camping.

That was the one lame part. If you needed someting from a specific spot be prepared to wait DAYS to get on the list to get into the group that was camping a specific spot only to sit there to kill a group of 4 mobs then sit on your ass for 30 minutes till they spawned again...only to NOT drop the shit someone needs :p

It's been since 2004 but I remember being in Lower Guk camping the Flowing Black Silk Sash, a highly prized haste belt, from the Froggies. I had one of those wind up kitchen timers and would reset it for 29 minutes waiting for respawn after respawn, night after night.
