Sounds like a trick to get the "most viewed website during an inauguration" award.

It's such a wonderful slight of hand.. the story is that Giuliani has a post in the incoming administration, which should set off all sorts of red flags. Nope.. let's talk about his website?!

A story saying that he's utterly unqualified is a sleight of hand?

Ok.

Yeah, I saw nothing in that article pointing to his qualifications or lack there of. If anything the website in question is just generic template from your typical low-end website reseller and has nothing to do with him aside from offering basic contact info. Uneasy

Saw an interesting bit on Mexico yesterday. They've spent 2 billion trying to stabilize the Peso in the wake of Trump's wall nonsense. It's been proposed that they just go ahead and purchase Twitter and shut it down. Most likely cheaper in the long run, not to mention hilarious.

I am not disappointing in the least that Valve is not working on HL3. Crowbar and snark skins, cosmetic HEV drops, box/key micro-transactions and whatever gambling marketplace(s) that would crop up, are not worthy of the Half-Life name.

Overall I still dislike Overwatch match-making as a whole though ;/ It's is by far the worst

+1 The feast/famine matchmaking is why I stopped playing. I know it's part of their "addictive gameplay" algorithm, but it's just not for me.

The choice of words being used is so critical to this story. The argument was whether they were involved in social engineering via. the selective release of leaks/emails/whatever during the campaign. Now that argument is whether they tampered with election equipment/process? Was anyone even trying to prove that one?

As I recall they were limited by not having access to the source code, even with Oleg's direct assistance at times.

I hope Team Fusion (Simulations) can keep it together and find a revenue stream, and hopefully not by going to the pay-per-plane model. It's quite difficult to move a hobby/enthusiast team into a commercial venture without suffering some loss to quality and leadership.

Vote in a bunch of people to break government's role in protecting people and providing a level playing field.. then point out just how broken/stupid the 'government' is during the next election cycle. Work into a lather, rinse and repeat. Thumbsup

Is this the patch that adds gameplay to the game?

1.1 made it a lot better, but it still not fully realized. If you are into survival and/or creative builder games then you will get some decent mileage out it (with either of the new game modes). Otherwise hold off for now.

I, for one, appreciate Nolan North acknowledging that VAs aren't the only people who make video games. Regardless of what the motivation was (assuming it was to foster general game dev support for the SAG strike).

It's a false argument.. if you support actors then you can't support developers?!? Bizarre.

Unfortunately film and television are the current model, and as an actor (that is cast) you can make a living in either of those, and receive royalties. EA/Activision want to distract everyone from that argument, including any developers that might think this industry is churn and burn (shock!).

descender wrote on Dec 2, 2016, 14:58:
If you've already played 2 full seasons... should 10 placement matches really be making that much of a difference in your ranking at all? Taking the small placement sample over the larger sample of games you've already played seems like bad math to me. They already basically know what your skill rating should be from the hundreds of games you've played... Expecting that to change drastically between seasons seems to be fundamentally misunderstanding what a skill rating tells you. Your current season rank and your skill rating shouldn't be the same number, they should be separate calculations... but your skill rating from the end of one season to the beginning of the next isn't going to change drastically for any reason.

I guess that part of these season resets are just lost on me. You should obviously reset ladder and leaderboard rankings... but that doesn't mean you have to ignore skill ratings you've already collected over a longer period of time.

I think there is something that they're not openly sharing with players. The 'addictive' aspect, for lack of a better term, requires that you think you can be a better player and provides you glimpses of god-like performance on occasion. Placement matches are there to make you try, to pull you in, even though they fully know your play style and ability. I'm not saying this is 100% Blizzard's doing, player talent and character synergies play a huge role also, and they certainly know that also.

It's all just conjecture, but I usually have a feeling that I've just been played after exiting a Blizzard multiplayer title. Uneasy

Storage Real-World Performance: NVMe vs. SATA vs. HDD - TechSpot

Good general info and video comparison. Sometimes tech articles and charts just don't really convey the differences.

Nice comparison.. I picked up a few MX300 525Mb drives during the sale on Monday to finally upgrade my ancient X25M (which still has like 98% life remaining according to SSD toolbox). Looking forward to the boost.

All we need now are some new LGA1366 boards with NVMe and USB 3.0 support.

What, Apple collects everything you do?
I thought only Google, Microsoft and the NSA did that.

Your call history is something your cell provider is already handing over. Making a stink about call syncing, something Apple has been open about, is just click bait.
