Speaking of life after antivirus, we're looking into replacing our Kaspersky endpoint with Cylance. We're doing a proof of concept and I've researched a bit but has anyone had any experience, good or bad with Cylance?

I put about 30 hours into Alien Isolation when I finished it and loved most all of it. Well, the end got a little dumb as the Alien difficulty ramped up and the Alien was seemingly everywhere. I ended up kinda jerking the AI around (AI as in Artificial intelligence and not Alien Isolation) by hiding in the vents and taking advantage that the stupid Alien couldn't see me even if I was half hanging out of the vents.

Still, the game was really well done and I loved the environments a lot.

Not sure if you are still having the Win7 patching issue, but I run into this at work all the time. My current best solution for a fresh install that refuses to patch is the following (assuming you installed 64-bit):

1. WindowsUpdateAgent-7.6-x64.exe from here: (This may or may not be necessary, but I install it now from habit)
2. Windows6.1-KB3050265-x64.msu from here:
3. Windows6.1-KB3102810-x64.msu from here:

Install in that order and reboot when prompted. Hope this helps. It worked for me on the last few fresh installs.

Hmm, I notice now that I've spent the time typing this out that you may not be having the same issue, since you mentioned "wont update anymore". My issue was that on a fresh install of Win7, it simply runs forever searching for Windows Updates. This fixes that issue. YMMV.

I'm not a big early access fan so this is on my radar but I haven't picked it up yet. Any idea how close to release they are?

Played a couple hours last night and everything went smooth. The game is sweet and so far, everything I expect in a souls game. First boss was stupid hard for me as a sorcerer but I suspect that shouldn't be the case. It was lovely though. I must be out of practice.

Using a controller on my PC for what it's worth.

I also have no issues with Videosift. I kinda like the links actually as they lead me to browse their top 10. I don't even do much to block ads, Firefox and Adblock plus is all.

As a subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment, Naughty Dog are best known for developing games for the PlayStation family of consoles, including the Crash Bandicoot series for the original PlayStation, Jak and Daxter on PlayStation 2, and Uncharted and The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Prior to this, they also developed games including Dream Zone, Keef the Thief, Rings of Power and Way of the Warrior.

From the Naughty Dog Wiki. You really want these guys doing HL3. You are nuts. No. Just No. Leave it to Valve, even if it comes out a mess, or the second coming version of gaming. Leave it where it belongs.
I loved Rings of Power on my Genesis. There was this one spell, Frenzy I think is was that was so bad ass I'd speed though the game until I was able to pick just that one spell up.

New vid from Mac about the combat in Witcher 3.
I think that's the same Worth a Buy video from a week ago. Yep, he still hates the combat.

News Comments > The Witcher III Patched
52. Re: The Witcher III Patched May 26, 2015, 17:27 Hanover
I struggled with the combat controls for a while. I tried KB+M and Xbox controller but never was satisfied with either. The fight with the Griffin though was the turning point in my game. I tried about eight times with KB+M and just couldn't get out of the way of my stupid fingers. I even tried rebinding attack keys so that strong attack was on the middle and then later the right mouse buttons but I never could get the right combo that worked for me. I think a large part of it is how the dodge and roll functionality works on a keyboard.

I went back to my Xbox controller and downed him in two tries, the second time I hardly broke a sweat. Since then, I've been using a mix of keyboard and controller. Keyboard and mouse for the menus, inventory and crafting and controller for exploring and combat.

Then I was browsing the CDP forums and came across this vid of a guy that plays defensively and it's a cool look at how combat plays for him. In his game, it's a fluid dance of motion and momentum that I can totally get into. My game plays like disjointed button mashing compared. That solidified it for me. Since then I've totally adjusted to how the game moves and plays and am having a ball. It's not quite how this dude plays, but it certainly borrows heavily from it.

Wow, Mack skewered W3 and I agree to a certain extent. The movement and controls are twitchy as hell. I'm currently playing with a controller on my PC since I struggle with the KBM. For reference, I tried to play Witcher 2 a couple of times and kept giving up after a few hours because the controls with keyboard and mouse sucked so badly. I finally tried it with an Xbox controller as a last result and ended up finishing the game using it (and got partway into playthrough two before finally stopping).

In this game though, the controls are nowhere near as tight as W2. It also seems like each new Witcher game makes the combat a little less interesting. Loved the combat in the first Witcher the most though I think I ended up modding it for more interesting combat so I may not be remembering it correctly.

I like the story and game world in Witcher 3 so I'm continuing to play, but I cant wait for some kind of combat rebalance mod to come out.

Thanks Talutha and Rigs, I'll check out iRacing again. I remember looking into it a while back but now I can't remember why I didn't jump on it. Appreciate it!

5. Project CARS Delayed Mar 11, 2015, 22:54 Hanover
Argh, that totally sucks. After the last delay I was hoping they'd come back with, "We're freakin' ready!" I'm jonesing for a good driver but can't find one at the moment. I just can't get into Assetto Corsa like I thought I would and was hoping pcars would do the trick. I was looking at Dirt 3 to tide me over but it's still tied to GFWL. Really Codemasters?

I'd love to try Driveclub on my PS4 but Sony doesn't support my Logitech G27 anymore and I'm not interested in buying another wheel.
