  1. In memory of Guy, long-time forum punching bag and 0 time award winner of anything. This one's for you, little buddy.

    The true answer is "it doesn't matter anyway". I just said fuck it since that mission went totally down the shitter anyway. Hostages dead before I got there, main bad guy got away, Serif must've felt like a dumbass wasting money on me.

    If you take too long fucking around the office before setting out on your first official mission (the hostage situation at the plant) then Sarif will call you up and say "HEY FAGGOT BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW THIS WAS ACTUALLY TIMED" and all the hostages will be dead already. I'm sure you'd know if you got it.

    Can't say I remember much of the story, I do recall the boss fights not being particularly good but that's how it was with Deus Ex 1. There was some cool deterministic things like waiting too long at the office, getting the bio-chip, or saving helicopter girl. What a shame the ending didn't depend on your actions at all though.

    Really? Wasn't it obvious that was gonna fuck you over? I always thought that to get it replaced (first time through at least) you had to be Homer Simpson-tier. New bio-chip? How can I lose?

    Only question is, did you get the upgraded bio-chip?

    I suppose at the end of the day the amount of dog models doesn't matter that much especially when they added tri-beam laser rifles that just do flat 120 damage that can't be mitigated because fuck you.

    I forgot they took Dogmeat and took half his body off and made him Rex. Then decided that was enough and put Rex x10 in the Big MT. And Obsidian to their credit did make the Legion Mongrels which I can't just write off as Shaggy Dogmeat. So you actually have just the two dog models for the entirety of Fallout 3 and Obsidian added two for New Vegas. Dogmeat Robo-Dogmeat Scabby Dog Legion Mongrel I can't feel but they could have picked at least made a generic dog model so every non-feral dog in Fallout 3 didn't share Dogmeat's model... and his heterochromia.

    It just hit me the other day that Bethesda was able to get away with using one dog model for almost the entirety of Fallout 3 and New Vegas (I'm blaming them here because Obsidian was rushed because of Bethesda). Every fucking dog that wasn't the scabby neglected one was Dogmeat. You walked into Old Lady Gibson's scrap yard and saw six fucking copies of Dogmeat.

    Reminds me of how GTA V's censorship was fucking insane, especially for a game that was, well, GTA. Not only would it block out normal swears NPCs will say randomly like fuck, shit, etc. but also very very dated insults, like Jerry. Despite, you know, there being a Jerry can (named as such) in the fucking game. Here's all of the censored words if you want a look. Never noticed bisexual before.

    Once I learned Fortnite's building aspect was less base-building and more "oh fuck I'm getting shot at better shit out a wall and build the tower of power" it really soured it for me. In every thread about the Phenom someone always makes this fucking pun. I didn't think it could happen here.

    As I said earlier I ain't playing it without my friend and since the only progress they've made on the Phenom II front is adding a message saying "We're not supporting it" well then I ain't playing it. It's apparently because parts of the game (or more specifically the anti-cheat) need SSSE3 to run, which the Phenom II lacks. Other games have had this happen before and they usually patch it so SSSE3 isn't required but Respawn doesn't seem to be interested. So there's nothing left for me to do but badmouth it until they give in from all the negative press I'm generating. Game fucking sucks by the way.

    I'd like to try it out but the lazy-ass devs or cheap-ass EA won't patch in Phenom II support so I can try it out with my friend who's still rocking that beast, because no way in hell am I playing a Battle Royale solo. At least it'll kneecap Fortnite.
  14. Impressively, Radeon VII managed to be just as much of a bad deal as RTX cards. Who says AMD can't duel with Nvidia?

    Beat Ace Combat 7's campaign for the first time. It was basically Ace Combat 5: 2, but that's what it should have been so I can't complain. The worst thing about it is that AWACS Bandog is the best AWACS in the series yet you hear so little of him it's criminal. People are saying it's a bad port because it doesn't have very good joystick support at launch and on one hand I understand because Namco said there'd be joystick support at launch. On the other hand playing Ace Combat with a joystick is like playing Burnout with a racing wheel - there's no real reason to do it if you have a controller. I never really thought about it since I don't know much about any particular subject and rarely feel the need to write more than a couple sentences at a time. I always feel like the more I write the shittier it gets.
  16. Well you could always send them a screenshot of you looking at some M-rated game on Steam. You have to be over 13 to look at those, they even ask.
  17. This sounds like a story.
  18. It's fucking bullshit that building a desk takes so much more work than building a PC but desk manufacturers still don't give you "enthusiast built" stickers.

    Benchmark your rig.

    I'm still not sure if Speccy's just fucking around or not because sometimes it'll go down to 60 without me doing anything before going back to 100. I last checked the temps a few months ago and it was doing the same thing, even gave it a thorough dusting and nothing changed. Either way it doesn't matter since it's getting honorably discharged soon anyway.

    Kneel. At idle, by the way. So don't even try to give me weak shit like 80 under load.
