"That just happened!"


Wow at the number of misinformed people replying here.

You're not going to get the amount of high end performance that a nVidia Titan and a hexacore Intel i7 4390k will give you, but it will play most newer games. The thing is that these parts are usually the most expensive (talking about the HDD, GPU, processor, PSU, and the mobo). Most tech guys will do a PC like this to benchmark first, to test how well it'll actually run in stress tests. Cases, keyboards and mice,... #1.1.25

The only problem I have with this article is that the site is affiliate with some right wing garbage such as Townhall.com and that, and that this guy terms the phrase "liberal tech press" as if all of us that were and are liberal sided with Zoe and Anita.

Other than that, it's a good piece. #16

I thought about writing this huge comment about this, but I think TotalBiscuit summed it up perfectly. I suggest that you take a look at it: http://blueplz.blogspot.com...

I think the problem about people labeling everyone and making certain people untouchable, always reacting nastily towards those that use red herrings and non sequiturs to further their own agenda... #4

It has to do with the integrity of the gaming journalistic media as well as the recent feminist movement. Zoe was willing to use her status as a female to entice the males in the gaming media world to write positive pieces for her and her game, and at least exaggerate (maybe even totally fabricate) the harassment she got.

Then, when anyone even remotely called her out for ANYTHING in this whole controversy, her circle (which included Phil Fish, AKA the stain on the underwear... #3.1

You make good points in that. As I've mentioned previously, even the most secured services are not 100% locked down. You'll have those moments. The concern is when you have so many of those moments and you never see anything done about it.

No doubt there was some agenda other than "because we can" or "we want those numbers" that led them to this. Whether you agree with the morality in their actions is another matter entirely. But they wanted to dra... #1.6.2

It wasn't the way to get the point across that PSN should be more secure. It is true that you can never be too careful in this high tech world.

That having been said, though, outrage over the hackers shouldn't be mistaken as leniency towards any company to protect these things to the best of their ability to make sure that these types of attacks are kept to the barest minimal that they possibly can. If a company is getting hacked time after time again, then it's... #1.6

Are you scared of seeing an opinion you don't want to be seen? You scared you'll see so many people who will agree with those opinions? #6.1

Of course they are going to deny that part of it because they know you'll wait for the game to come out for your system of choice if they say that. The DLC they can get away with that a bit more because it doesn't really sell units. An actual game that's exclusive will. So that incites you to buy the system for that game.

But no one should really be celebrating this, and I bet the outcry might make SE think twice before keeping it exclusive (remember FF13 and how... #55

1. I said subscription model as an alternative (which you've conveniently ignored).

2. I called you touchy because you went after my first comment as if it was a personal attack on you (it wasn't). It was over the top, yes, but so was your first comment to me.

3. Anytime someone has a disagreement with you, you get like this. You put me on your ignore list after you PMed me with nastiness about my opinions. It's not just me. Just because you like... #1.1.18

You're going on the notion that I'm for one company over another, and are still under this impression that because I called out Sony over that whole anti-homebrew & hacking fiasco, that I'm an anti-Sony guy. It's as if no one is ever allowed to criticize them in your mind. And when they do, you attack them with worthless things such as their ignore/follow ratio (which I bet you, outside of one - you - the rest are trolls who will just blindly ignore anyone who doesn't... #1.1.16

First off, aren't we touchy today?

Now, when reviewers talk about time it might take to complete the game, they are not factoring in things like real life implications, the skill of the player, whether or not a player chooses to follow the same path of progression, etc. What other priorities do you have in daily life? What games are you playing (fighting games can be "completed" in one sitting, but with one character out of a full roster)? How skilled do you con... #1.1.14

We already knew this, morgan. That's part of the problem here: they're giving the devs and publishers an inch, and they are taking a mile, just as they made that mistake of not making trophies mandatory when they first implemented that system.

The thing is that if EA Access becomes a success for them, and there's no reason to think it won't, then PS Now will be forced to rethink their strategy. Sony has already said they were getting requests for a subscriptio... #1.1.12

So...he's not allowed to comment on articles saying why he's not a console gamer right now? Sad thing is that your comment got three agrees and his got 4 disagrees. Shows you just how out of touch some people are on this site. #7.1.1

Big difference right now, though, in that EA is allowing you to pay 30/year for EVERYTHING in that library that they decide to add (might just be EA published games to start out with, but they could strike deals with other publishers down the line). Right now, with PS Now, you have to pay a separate fee for each game and keep all of those up.

If PS Now offered a subscription model where one price gave you unlimited access to all titles (which they've said was requested by... #5.1.2

But isn't that what the PS Plus free game thing does now? Once your sub ends, so does your access to the games unless you renew. How is that any different? #5.1

So, the main problem with this guy's view is that he's not looking at the abilities of the wrestlers (besides the Undertaker, and he's basing THAT off of a match in which it was rumored that he worked through a concussion and Lesner was protecting him once he realized the situation), and simply looking at if they were on WWE TV at any point and if they are over in any way right now. By that logic, Bad News Barrett would be getting some bad news of his own.

Which is the biggest problem with giving publishers that much of a say, because they will always, ALWAYS, take a mile if you give them an inch. You HAVE to keep them in line. No if, and, or buts about it! #2.3.1

That was one source. You expect me to really think that she did her research if she found ONE source for this information. When I do videos in which I cite sources, I cite all of them, or as many as I can, and I say when I cannot and the reasons why I cannot. That is just being about to back up what you say with hard evidence.

And you said it yourself: "And part of her point is that trolls take a *very* different approach toward women than men." Trolls take a very d... #1.1.9
