Brussels shocked by terror attacks. The ISIS used a Brussels banlieue (Molenbeek) as a breeding ground for new terrorists resulting in the Paris attacks, and now Belgium has finally taken notice of what is going on right in front of the EU headquarters after ignoring the problem-ridden part of the city even after it became a no-go-area for the police. They raided a few places in Molenbeek, surprisingly (sarcasm!) found the surviving terroist of the Paris attacks (who was born under a mile away from the place he was found!), and now all hell breaks loose. Learn a lesson: don't let any hood/banlieue turn into such a hellhole that even the police don't want to go there. React early! Damn, so many innocent lives lost because of wrong politics again. It's like politics only knows either bombs and high walls or blind trust and ignorance. There is a middle ground, you know!

Wtf they aren't even beta anymore though? I have beta drivers turned off in GeForce Experience and these were an official release according to that program. Got your facts straight? Cause I'm confused... :\

nVidia had to declare them final drivers to force Geforce Experience to use them as an update for all people who - for good reasons, as we know - have turned off the beta driver updates but had installed the faulty final drivers.

Except these were beta drivers that were issued as an emergency hotfix to address problems with the previous drivers, which were WHQL-certified.

The post title should be what it is, imo.

While interaction with the world in the PU is very.. janky.. I feel like Crusader does a good job of showcasing the game's potential.

They could use this tech demo for a kickstarter. If enough people are interested, they could work on a cool game with a few $$$.

Uhm... Oh, wait...

Apple also didn't give China anything remotely similar to what the US government is asking for.

Indeed. They helped censor the internet for over a billion chinese people. What is this compared to hacking an iphone of a terrorist? Exactly. Nothing. Right?

None. The 2077 is NOT part of the title, it is and always has been the release date. In Valve time.

DX12 doesn't have anything to do with it. It's only "Windows 10 exclusive" because the MS Store is the only way to buy it.

Of course they probably could make Windows 7 DX12 compatible, but why on Earth would they?

Like they probably could have made Windows XP DX10/11 compatible.

10 for the Chariman

1. When will Squadron 42 be released?
2. Okaaay, when will the first episode of Squadron 42 be released?
3. No, not a tech demo that will hightlight the polishing of the flight lieutenant's shoes, I mean the FULL episode. Wait, full episode? How about all episodes?!
4. Alright, soooo, how about the multiplayer game? Release date?
5. Yes, I know you have put out several release dates up to now, but how about the REAL release date?
6. No, *sigh* NOT THE TECH DEMO! THE COMPLETE MULTIPLAYER GAME!!!
7. The what module? Is this the name for the complete game? No? So, when will the "persistent universe" be released FOR REAL, I ask persistently.
8. Yes, I know that dates may shift, but they have done so already a couple of times, right? And once again, I am not asking for the release date of a tech demo, a module, an episode, or the next ship design... No, I... NO, I DO NOT WANT TO "UPGRADE" MY PLEDGE AND BUY A BETTER SHIP FOR REAL $$$. Just when...
9. Okay, so when will... Aha. After Star Marine is finished?! I thought you scrapped this module and just took parts and...
10. Okay, last one for you. Can I get out of this somehow? Please? PRETTY PLEASE?

Oh god, you make obvious that there is no point showing you facts. Blind ideology. Nothing can punch through that. Religious people prove that every day.
Have a nice day, but dont come running here once youre confronted with cold hard reality.

Look into a mirror, dude.

Yes, they are all criminals. There are 1.5 million criminals - by birth? Do you really believe that they are ALL criminals? REALLY? They walk through deserts, use small boats to cross the Mediterranean Sea, they WALK through more than half of Europe just to escape a WAR. Do you have German parents or grandparents? Ask them what they did in late 1944/early 1945. Most of them became refugees and immigrants themselves, and of course, they were all criminals, too, right?

And what is your alternative? Walls? Mines? Guards shooting at unarmed refugees?

The shame is that most European countries just turn away and do NOTHING. The oh so faithful roman-catholic Poland forgets everything about their oh so precious Christian ideals and just ignores people starving at the borders. So much about religious people - aren't most Christians fans of YOUR point of view? That is a very interesting approach to Christian ideals, I have to say. Don't share, don't help, just ignore and/or hate. Yep, sounds very much like Jesus to me.

Whatever. People will leave their countries when everything they know and love gets destroyed. It doesn't matter if a Russian, Syrian, Turkish, ISIS, Al Nusra, or US bomb hits your home or block - the effect is pretty much the same. So families run for their lifes and look for places that could offer a new home and a peaceful life. This has happened for thousands of year and will never stop or get stopped.

Fuck this country at the moment. Seriously.

Hello my AfD friend, you DO know that a lot more rapes in 2015 were commited by Germans than by immigrants? Yes, Cologne was horrible and the hundreds of idiots should be kicked out of the country, but you should understand that out of more than a million immigrants, there HAVE to be criminals among them. No, they are not all saints coming to Germany, just like the Germans are not all saints. But that is how it goes: less than 1% are criminals, so they ALL are criminals. That's exactly how fascism works.

About local police reports: there have been some reports that in some places, police would not report the nationality of criminals being caught to a) not feed the fires already burning (again, people will point out EVERY SINGLE immigrant commiting a crime, because not a single report goes "German Rapes Girl", but would definitely write "Immigrant Rapes Girl" if this shit happens) and b) not to be called racists themselves. But if YOU would check your own newspaper, you might find LOTS of reports by police officers themselves exposing lies about "crimes by immigrants" in their area that actually never happened. Now, some people will say that those officers are bought or put under pressure to lie, but is that not a clear sign of paranoia?

Yes, there are immigrants who will not even accept talking to a female police officer, but so are some German criminals, too. They don't think of women as equal - see, it's not an "immigrant" thing, it's a sexist thing.

Saying that the media, the police, the government are all lying is also sounding pretty paranoid. Even worse than those guys criticizing Windows 10 while using Android mobile phones.

And about those crimes: I've provided a link to a website dealing with fake reports about crimes commited by immigrants. Go, take a look, maybe some stories you heard about shit supposedly going down in your area might be wrong, too.

If the country lets women get raped and attacked by immigrants then denies it happens....fake violence should be entirely acceptable.

I'll give that a 5/10...some effort to troll, but not too much.

Its funny how people dont believe that actually happens here. Well, I didnt either at first.
I assure you, it happens. A lot.
They even admit it. They say they are not reporting about it, are manipulating statistics and let them run to not strengthen the extreme right wingers in their arguments, to preserve peace.

I assure you. It does NOT happen a lot. It's about as often an immigrant commiting a crime as it is a German. Of course, nazis and fascists post lies and fake stories about crimes and even use photoshop to forge "proof photos". There are already a lot of websites in Germany dealing with this and exposing the lies like this one (in German), but of course that won't stop idiots from hating and lying. Like always in history, people are afraid of everything new, foreign, and strange and initially react with fear and rejection. That is why immigration and integration are processes that happen over decades and generations.

One thing, of course, is true: criminals are not bound to cultures and nationalities, there are dangerous individuals in every country, culture, and religion. If you write an article with a headline "Immigrant steals purse from elderly lady", most people will go "SEE?! These ungrateful assholes are all scumbags!". You will, of course, never read a headline "US (or German) citizen steals purse from elderly lady", because the fact that it was a fellow citizen is not newsworthy. See how it works?

I'll keep an eye on this one. I did like the previous Insurgency game.

It's a remake, so it's no new game. If you liked it before, then you would like it again - same game, but prettier.
