I won't be upgrading my retail win7 ultimate to win10. The free upgrade is an OEM license so you are screwed if you decide to change out your mobo in the future. I may update oem win7 on a laptop to 10 but haven't got around to it yet.

JC 3 is awesome. Definitely has a learning curve but once the wingsuit is mastered and some mods unlocked via the (sometimes annoying) challenges, the game is a blast.

Also very unforgiving to slower CPU's. Changed out my G3258 CPU for an i7-4790 and that fixed ALL issues I was having with stuttering/framerates. When I built this machine in May I had plans to eventually swap in a faster 1150 socket CPU anyway but this game made my mind up for me Went from average 30-40 fps on low-med settings to steady 60fps with the i7 on mostly high settings. That's with a 970GTX 4GB video card and 16GB of RAM btw.

Square Enix server disconnections have been rare thankfully but I still had one that was very annoying and made me screw up a wingsuit challenge.

Most annoying issue I have is not being able to fire weapons until a push off/elbow animation completes first. This happens every time I fire a weapon. Maybe it's a corrupted save but since all we get is a checkpoint save system I can't load anything earlier...

Edit: good news, this wasn't a bug;somehow the melee key (C) got bound to mouse1 and the game let two actions use mouse1.

Reading the performance guide on the GEFORCE site about all the water related tech really made me miss the silent hunter sims. They need to make a new one with this tech.

As for my experience with JC3,my G3258 is really showing its limitations but it was playable last night. I just ordered a new i7-4790 though

I have a 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE and it's definitely not ugly. Looks the same as the regular Fusions in fact and has all the bells and whistles; leather seats, keyless entry, remote start, heated seats, awesome stock stereo w/ SiriusXM capability. Bought it in May and have used A/C almost every month (Florida) except the last few weeks and mileage is still 41+ mpg so far. Great car and I have no regrets.

Just Cause 3 is preloading as I write this so I can verify that cdkeys.com is legit. Bought it for $25.99 last night and they sent me the key this afternoon.

Thanks to the post in this thread by DangerDog.

What's funny is that it says there is no stock any longer for this item.

It's digital! There is nothing to stock!

EDIT: Tried again and transaction completed...

Happy Thanksgiving all.

That chemical plant explosion video is crazy. Made me think of Just Cause 3.

I'll be waiting and seeing until July to see if I can mitigate the spying in Windows 10. I uninstalled the updates in Win7 that pushed it (and hid them) so no more nagging at every boot up at least.

My day job is cybersecurity also so I'm wary...

They lost my sale over this. I almost bought it during a recent sale but read about the micro transactions and didn't.

From what they said at the opening ceremony, everyone at Blizzcon and virtual ticket holders will get Cho'gall automatically. Others can complete a quest to get him. From Cho'gall webpage:

Note: During the Cho’gall Buddy Brawl event, you can obtain Cho’gall by completing the quest, random seeding at the start of the event, or a BlizzCon loot code. After the event, you will be able to purchase Cho’gall from the in-game store.

SunTrust is laying off approximately 100 IT employees as it shifts their duties to IT contractors. The employees have been training overseas workers to take their jobs.

Wow, hope I never have to do this.

News Comments > Falcon Collection on GOG.com
2. Re: Falcon Collection on GOG.com Oct 23, 2015, 18:54 Shok
 
I remember playing Falcon 3 on my old PC's back in the day. I had a special boot disk just to get the memory free to be able to load it. I remember it being pretty buggy though. Of course, it wasn't as easy to get patches for games back then. I've still got the manuals and disks for this around somewhere though.

Even so I really have no desire to play this again with the graphics and details in flight sims these days.

News Comments > World of Warcraft Patch Tomorrow
5. Re: World of Warcraft Patch Tomorrow Aug 31, 2015, 23:23 Shok
 
I got back in to it about four months ago and if it weren't for being able to pay via game gold per month I probably would have quit a few months ago.

Can't really recommend a reason to play except they have made it easier to get geared once you level 100. Tanaan jungle is the gear dispenser zone for a newish 100 and is fun for the first few weeks but inevitably the daily grind thing sets in. I also got bit by the pet collecting and battling bug so that has been keeping me in it as well...
