    Destiny - Discussion Thread

    Hey, so I'm a co-developer on a project called Phase. We're hoping to help make gaming in groups easy again, particularly with games like Destiny that don't have the right tools built-in. We just launched an alpha version of our android app this week (yes it's free), so all feedback is very...

    Android Dev: contacts list sorting?

    Hey guys, I'd like to pick your brains a bit on a problem that I'm hoping to solve a little more elegantly in my app than the current solution. At the moment, users must select names from their contact list to send out a notification. Typically this notification will be sent out to a small...

    Random Shutdowns - PSU giving out?

    No, that's the thing, nothing else flickers or shuts off, not even for a second. The "power" i was referring to was the power of the computer. It's like I flicked the switch on the back of the PSU for a second.

    Random Shutdowns - PSU giving out?

    Hey guys, quick question. I've been running the rig in my sig for a few years now and it's mostly been great, but recently there have been a few hiccups. Occasionally the power will just "blink" and instantly shut off the computer (it immediately restarts). I don't believe it is an issue...

    Single GTX770 at 2560x1440 opinions

    I have a 670 and 1440p. I max out every game I play. I don't play BF4 though, so no advice there. I'm also not bothered by sub 60 fps, as long as it doesn't stutter (generally starts happening sub 30).

    Synology NAS 3rd party plugin question - SVN

    Has anyone set up SVN on their NAS? I know Synology are fairly popular, so I was hoping to find some others here that have tried this as well.

    Synology NAS 3rd party plugin question - SVN

    Ok, so I'm trying to set up an SVN server on my NAS (DS212j) under Synology's diskstation software. I installed the SVN package from the package manager, seemed to install just fine. I run the package, it tells me to create a repository, which I do. And then.... nothing. I have no idea how to...

    Where to buy a replacement laptop screen?

    Have you bought a screen that isn't the original resolution of the laptop that it will be used on? I'm not sure how to navigate that site to find that information, as it seems to like to narrow me down to the original screen of X model.

    Where to buy a replacement laptop screen?

    Sorry for the bump, but I'm looking to use this site and was wondering if anyone has some feedback. Basically I'm about to buy the Clevo w230st, but I'm not really comfortable with 1080p resolution on a 13.3" form factor. I'm probably going to swap it out for a lower resolution (like 1600x900)...

    Why do you care about ultra high res laptops?

    Do you people really do large photo manipulation and other work on a 11-17" laptop screen? Often?? I don't do photo stuff at work, but I do code, so more resolution = more lines = better in general. but I would never do serious coding work on a laptop if I could avoid it, regardless of the...

    Jay Wilson: Auction House really hurt Diablo 3

    You're *way* too plugged into a small scene if you think PoE and Titan Quest were "popular." The "I want to go back to 2000 and play more D2" crowd likes them, sure, but on a large scale (i.e. the gaming population in general) they are not very popular games at all. Besides, D3 really doesn't...

    Jay Wilson: Auction House really hurt Diablo 3

    I don't understand why everyone thinks the AH (not even just the RMAH) is the antichrist. Whether the AH is in the game or not, you're "rewarded" for the time that you put into the game. The problem with D3 is that the game just sucks and is boring. Diablo 3's items, stats, skills, maps...

    SCII: HOTS... Whos excited??

    The matchmaking is very good. Blizzard has been perfecting their MM algorithms for over a decade now (in both their Starcraft and Warcraft universes) and 99.9% of the population will play most of their games against relatively equal skill players. Give it 10-20 games to sort out your rating...

    Anita Sarkeesian "Tropes vs. Women Video Games" first vid is out.

    1) I can't play as someone that looks like me either, in the vast majority of games. 2) There are video games that depict women just as well as Jane Eyre does. But just like Jane Eyre isn't the "norm" in literature, they aren't the "norm" in video games. Doesn't mean they don't exist. 3)...

    Anita Sarkeesian "Tropes vs. Women Video Games" first vid is out.

    It's not like the protagonists in Gears of War and similar games are the "average male." So why should female characters be less idealistic? It's not about the looks, it's about the character behind the looks. Oh and btw, this is only news because of her absurd kickstarter. It looked like she...

    SimCity Debacle: Could EA have messed it up any more?

    I really don't understand why D3 haters feel the need to straight up LIE to make that game look bad. I don't like D3 just like the rest of you, but there's no need for untruths. The D3 servers had problems for the first ~8 hours of release, and then were mostly fine. There were no ongoing...

    What? A few months and they're expected to blow it out of the water??? Since when? Just because the 2 companies aren't on a synchronized release schedule anymore doesn't mean they aren't working on about the same level of technology for a given year. 600 series is the same generation as...

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    Well said, gotta agree with this. I'm excited for GW2, but I am not really as "omgcantwait" hyped as I was before I played the first BWE. 1) Events do respawn way too fast. They said after the first BWE event that they didn't turn up the frequency significantly for the beta, which I really...

    6950 xfire or GTX 680 for triple monitor gaming?

    If you can drop crossfire, DO IT. Getting both Eyefinity and Crossfire to work at the same time isn't a given with new games. Surround and SLI is even worse (especially if you are trying to run in borderless windowed mode.

    Max Payne 3 -- When Rockstar 'pushes the envelope'

    Numbers aren't subjective. That's the problem with assigning them to a subjective opinion. One number is less than, equal to, or greater than another number. That's how they work. I think that's the biggest problem I have with all this BS you're spouting about reviews....

    Gamespot: when did regenerating health become realistic?

    One day we're going to get a game where you're actually just ALIVE, not at "100 health." Where taking a sword to the thigh is going to make it bitching hard to walk for quite some time, not take away 30 "health." Throw in magic so that you don't have to beat the entire game without dying, but...

    Games that can never be made again because of difficulty

    There are plenty of past and current Korean MMOs out there that make you lose XP on deaths. Some of them even have the ability to PK anyone, anywhere (except inside big towns). Usually it gives you a "murder status" where you can be killed in turn by anyone, but it still happens. Korean MMOs...

    Wow the bitching is strong in here. Have you ever considered that you're just bad at the game? I've killed Inferno Diablo both in a group and solo (group kill at ~100 hours, solo at ~130 but I overgeared it, could have done sooner). I make money very easily, and I can farm any elite in the...

    GTX680 or Radeon 7970

    If you are on Eyefinity I would go with AMD. It's better overall than Surround. SLI also tends to have issues in games like GW2 on Surround. I would go with Nvidia if I wasn't on 3 screens for drivers and price/performance (the 670/680 can be OCed too you know).

    Where is the fun in artificially limiting how fast you can complete a game? "Oh yea, well I COULD go beat Diablo now, but I'm just going to keep farming the same content for a few more weeks so that I can take longer to beat it."
