I run Windows XP and except for the occasional (weekly or so) malware infection it is great! Plus there is no built-in spyware, you get a few random infections but being in a botnet isn't all that bad.

Technically you would need a dfs based raid to combat bitrot. Just saving to an 8tb drive doesn't guarantee there won't be issues.

I'm definitely convinced self-driving electric cars will be common in the future. Invest in this now and be rich in 20 years...

ICE (internal combustion engines) will never become obsolete completely but the paradigm shift is coming.

Yeah I was looking at legend of grimrock 2 the other day and it was on sale last December for almost half of what it is this year. Guess I will wait since I don't have time to play my backlog as it is.

You don't have to wonder what is going on here, there is no great mystery. You can actually read the actual log file that Geforce Experience sends to nVidia.

GPU’s specs, vendor, clock speeds
monitor specs and resolution
settings for specific games
list of games and applications installed
PC specs, RAM, CPU, motherboard, and BIOS version

Zero personally identifiable information.

You guys have lost your right to wear tinfoil hats, you've wasted them on too many stupid things like this.

That may be true today but who knows what else they collect in the future with a minor change in an obscure eula?

Sweet, just in time since I'm almost on the last mission as low chaos Corvo. I never had too many framerate issues but I know there is a lot of grumbling that it has bad performance for many. I'm on i7-4790, 16gb, GTX 970, win 10, and never had an issue but did buy it on black friday after a patch was already out...

Comcast Xfinity causes multiple slide offs and an accident with injury. - videos. Thanks Jalopnik via nin.

Maybe JUST MAYBE, he is making it worse?

He was adding salt to the road at least.

That win 10 update must be what caused WiFi to stop working on my wife's laptop. Ipconfig /renew fixed it though but ended up making a batch file so my wife could run that when needed...

Dishonored 2 is falling fast.

Loving Dishonored 2...over 40 hours so far as reported by Steam. Two playthroughs going at once...low chaos Corvo and high chaos, kill-everything-in-sight Emily. And the graphics are just incredible...the lighting and texture work are super A+ top-notch amazing.

Agreed! Dishonored 2 is GOTY for me, clockwork mansion level is map of the year. I'm on first playthrough as low chaos Corvo also. Glad it came out later in the year so got discounted to $35 fast in the sales or I would not have bought it until next year!

Ugh.. Anyone else finding that as you get old you have no time to actually play and finish the games that come out? Currently my game queue list just keeps growing.

Yeah, I do tend to take more time to finish games. The days when I'd get a new game and have it finished the next day are long since past. I still haven't finished Dishonored 2. My solution: just buy fewer games

The only reason I haven't finished Dishonored 2 is because of the garbage performance, relatively. I haven't tried after the 4gb patch of last week but that's because ppl here said they didn't notice anything.

This game runs very well! I still absolutely curse the fact I went to 144hz because 60fps is now stuttery to me and an actual no go, but turning on the AA option that forces MSAA 2X (cant remember the term atm) DRASTICALLY increased my fps. And yes, it actually warranted the capital letters.

Yeah I had lots of antialiasing artifacts using the recommended settings through Geforce Experience but they cleared up with AA set to TXAA 1x and default sharpness of 10. I bought Dishonored 2 for $35 from Walmart on turkey day, installed it and have been running the beta patch. I'm only playing at 1080p/60hz on an i7, 16gb, 970GTX though. I get dips in FPS in open areas but nothing too bad. According to game stats I'm at 12.5 hours and nearly finished with 3rd level, only because I'm doing a stealthy playthrough and too stubborn to not get every rune/bonething. I think I am starting to understand what I can get away with as far as hiding and try not to cheese z-axis too much to hide from baddies.

I hope they locked down the scissor lifts also. (One of the reviews I read mentioned that hacking scissor lifts is overused in the game for doing anything vertically)

$20 Fallout 4 https://www.direct2drive.com/#!/download-Fallout-4/5011017

That level of sale for FO4 seems to be pretty widespread, $19.79 on Steam right now too...I may have to finally buy it.

Even better actually; the boxed version was $10 on Amazon yesterday so I finally snagged it. Thx slickdeals.net
