Re: News [NO POLITICS]

I'm not really sure I see an issue with Kotaku from the article to be honest. I think people talking about and sharing stuff like that about game dev is cool, despite the fact that it might be "common knowledge" to some. I rather see Kotaku as an example of, duh, "gaming journalism&q...

Re: Computer Stupidities

Witcher 3 runs just fine on W7, though? Truth is, W7 is far more lenient on games than W10; I can play games old and new. I'm considering about getting a Ryzen to complete my build but Microsoft wants to end W7 support for newer hardware. Duh, fortunately hardware manufacturers still make drivers f...

gargantuan loading times Shouldn't be a problem with a PC and an SSD drive but on a console... -------------- Finally got the free versions of Starcraft and Saint's Row 2. The former it's for keeps, no more cd-keys. The latter was indeed a buggy ride. Despite that the game was almost a decade old, ...

Why it was a good thing I stopped reading Kotaku a long time ago.

Re: FML general thread [8]

One of these days I may have to unfollow some people off from my Facebook page, specifically people who are too successful or have much what I really seek for (honestly I really LOVE to have a NORMAL LIFE -- a relationship, a job, a family, a home of my own -- just like anyone else at the age of 40)...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Went to the cineplex, asked friends online what I should watch. They mostly asked for Logan and Power Rangers...

Watched Kong instead, partly because I am a sucker now for 60's rock music.

Funny to find Loki and Nick Fury on the same page. :lol:

Shitty day today. Literally. Cool story my ass. :facepalm: * Without warning the dog came up the dinner table and ate the lunch leftovers, just as I was busy washing the dishes. Fuck this, I thought the dog was supposed to be in the bedroom. * Friend called, said he was going to buy a laptop that wa...

Re: Computer Stupidities

Oh, wow. Hella way to sell an operating system that not everyone likes. I don't like Win10 because it gimps VRAM for older games to 4gb, asides from privacy concerns and forced updates. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/03/microsoft-is-getting-ready-to-block-windows-updates-for-old...

Trying to watch Stranger Things because younger acquaintances were talking about it and its association with Eggos.

Re: FML general thread [8]

Pretty much everyone done with their teens is a twenty-something mind in a whatever age body. The only difference is the number of responsibilities you have, how your current social circle pressures you to behave, and how much you have to lose if you rebel against either of those. Nobody ever reall...

Re: FML general thread [8]

A smelly room is a room expressing failure in life, unable to go another step, waiting for something to happen, fiddling thumbs out of boredom, bitterness and disinterest. A room without windows, only a door, the air is hot and uncomfortable, and the only light is a solitary light bulb, as if denied...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Is anyone else watching The Young Pope? I find it rather marvelous. Marathoned it out of curiosity. First few episodes was like listening to Kid Rock and Eminem at full volume. Then it was... Like mind-blowing! One may not like him but some of his statements hammer home. Lenny would be forever call...

Re: Computer Stupidities

It just made better sense to wait and see rather than blindly throw money at something which may make things worse. If I was lucky to buy an RX470 after several years with an HD7750, unimpressed with the R7s and R9s, I also thought it wise enough that I held onto the Athlon II since 2012 (briefly I ...

Too easy to say they're on top because they're also on recommendations by any Tom, Dick and Harry for years , even though some people will have to fork over more money for the GPU just to show they have more balls.

Re: Computer Stupidities

It's been a few days Ryzen came out and most people dissed on it just because it's a few figures short of Intel's i7-7700K. For the price of that Pagani Zonda processor -- was it a thousand Cs? -- I could damn well buy a decent Ryzen processor plus a new video card, memory, and maybe a heatsink. :lo...
