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...

The first Battlezone remake was one of the best early online MP games. Jumping out and sniping people never got old.

Due cynicism aside, it would be way worse if they weren't patching it at all. Supposedly parts of the military are paying MS millions to extend patching support for them beyond 2016. It was probably on here somewhere that I read it.

Yup, it was just in the news the other day...9.1 million!!

My Witcher 3 key (GoG only) came with my Nvidia 970 vid card which was offered by Nvidia to all purchasers of the latest video cards.

I'm sure lots bought it on GoG but quite a few got it free with their vid card purchases...

ARK sold 200,000 copies in the first two days.
I don't remember seeing much marketing for this game. Wonder how they got the name out so well.
Greenlight campaign?

I'm not sure either but the few guys I follow on twitch seem to have stopped playing H1Z1 and DayZ and are playing ARK now. Looking right now at Twitch there are 33k viewers of ARK games...

I have lots of nostalgia for this series, especially the first two. I actually bought it for C64 when it came out back in 1985, when I was 15. The mapping was a chore and the difficulty was rough but it was still a blast.

I'm not sure how they would recapture that but I'm interested. Maybe they'll get Michael Cranford to help. He was the major producer and coder of the first two games.

Looks like Battle.net is being DDOS'd. Blizzard tweeted that it banned a bunch of WoW accounts for botting so I assume this is the kiddies way of getting them back...

Hopefully it's the dipshits that decided buying utorrent and turning it into the worst ad-infested crapware since realplayer was a good idea.

News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V Maxed Settings Video

I finally pulled the trigger on a new PC build. I haven't built a PC in 5 years so couldn't just upgrade the video card since my mobo only supported PCI 2.0. I ended up using my old case and SSD's I had. In the end the mobo, CPU, memory, PSU, and video card (GTX970) ended up costing just under $500 with rebates. I'm interested in seeing just how CPU limited games are with the P3258 CPU. (It was free in the newegg combo deal.) Also, GTAV is definitely playable with Intel onboard video of the Z97/P3258. My 970 comes Wednesday though
