Re: Never understood smoking
And you are an ignorant twat so what!
Never understood smoking
Along with a lot of friends never understood why people started.
School smokers used to get flak from the ordinary pupils, and I remember getting a prefect into trouble, she told me to do lines, I told no, she reported me, I reported her for smoking on the school bus and she got the bollocking.
But then as soon as I was 16 I rode to school, saved an hour a day for 5p of petrol, own transport beats smelling any day of the week.
Re: DoA failures
I am pretty sure lead free solder is responsible for YLOD. And partly responsible for RROD.
Cracking solder joints with an inflexible solder.
Leaded solder still allowed AFAIR for life critical systems.
So they are useless then?
They don't make anything usefull.
Why should their kit get in the way of web usage?
Well Sony did the right thing and acquired studios.
They also give them a lot of autonomy..
David Cage had sonme interesting comments on the attitudes of the manufacturers
Can you see Oxo tower from there?
It would be funny if you could!
He should have 1 XB1
3 3DS and 2 2DS
Bragging - about XBones
What is he going to do, put them all in HDMI passthrough!
Re: Sony does similar, LOOK AT SOURCE CODE
I only have one question about this, one word, three letters.
Why report every key press made, that is just silly, what can they do with the information?
The ONLY things I can think of are.
1) Seeing what features are used.
2) If it gets a faulty afterwards - bug trapping.
3) Some numpty left some code in.
Done a search and found this
So have a look and let us know why your TV is doing this.
That was more of a worry.
Why does Lucky Goldstar need to advertise on your TV?
My own TV is supposedly smart (actually not very) so simply no network cable is plugged in.
I know someone with a Samsung smart TV, again not very.
Never understood use of pounds in weight over a stone, totally meaningless to me.
To me 2000 pounds is a some of money.
900kg is a weight, nearly a ton(ne)
So is it a cheap newer car or an expensive older car?
Playing with your self
Isn't that a bit dangerous when driving?
As to taking pictures while driving, You are boring, outside is more interesting.
But we need the 29th off
For when we get our new console
Dirk Benedict original or Katee Sackoff off the TPBTV* remake
* Well it was after they stopped showing them on Freeview.
My own approach is send fuel or boosters for the return flight a few years before on a slow flight and use them when you get there.
Don't forget the otehr two
Not fair just to pick on Cameron.
Millipede is feeling left out, as is Compo's friend
Re: No combined search/URL
I do not want this, if I want to search I use the search box
Before it goes live
How do I make it look like it does now?
That looks horrid!
Re: Take the figures with a pinch of salt
And the voice control is not that good on X1 either, turns off your TV when you ask it to turn on.
Switches to another profile it they walk in front of the camera.
Quits a game and does not save if it miss hears your TV channel name for a game name.
None are perfect.
Re: Hardware non-issues - Graphics
Actually it depends on the studio.
RSX is quick but limited in power, but to make up for the power difference it is able to communicate with the Cell using a high speed bus.
So Xenos is more powerful but slower than the RSX, the Cell more powerful than the Xenon, but PS3 uses a high speed parallel bus to link them.
Since the SPUs can be used for graphics, it means that it is possible for PS3 to pump out better graphics. But 360 is easier to code for.
I still find the quality amazing on such games as Uncharted 2 & 3, The Last Of Us and Killzone 3.
Also not many multiplatforms are that different, usually it is a bit here a bit there, draw distances to one and textures to the other.
Re: Keyboard mouse yawn
Well after playing KBM & controller then have their plus and minus points.
Mouse better to aim.
Controller better to move around.
Motion controls were a good idea with FPSs on Wii and PS3 with Move.
Pity they have been abandoned for the new generation and yes Guerilla Games I am pointing at you!
32" CRT and a large screen LCD
Re: Recent Adverts on US TV...
Err PC gaming comes under Steam
Yes Resistance 3, Portal 2 and Bioshock Infinite
Hmm just bought the DLC for BI
Re: Dreamcast & Nintendo/Sony
Dreamcast was pretty good, but was a bit gimmicky.
Could have done with twin sticks, the plug in cartridge is a bit weird, GDROM is limited compared to DVD.
Was good graphics, definately same generation as PS2.
Sony entered the market after Nintendo went Philips for the CD drive and Sony had developed one for Nintendo.
I think MS entered partly due to the Dreamcast running Windows CE.
Re: Custom Chips
Here are 4 custom console chips which are well known, Cell, RSX, Xenon, Xenos
Re: Sony TV
Why is it a mistake, I genuinely found the picture was better than other LCD TVs on multiple sources.
Other choice would have been a Pioneer plasma but they are too expensive.
My TV was getting ***** reviews!
Re: COD - killing
Go play Dishono(u)red with a no kill run.
Now that is an achievement
Re: Shooting people
Well I like SciFi setting ones!
And to be honest even in games I do not like killing unarmed characters, if they are shooting me - OK
Re: Expensive TV
I LIKE my TV, it gets a lot of use so may as well have one I like.
Some people buy expensive cars (I do when they are cheap), some people go and spend a fortune on sports team tickets. I like a really good TV, put a really good film on - like the cinema.
The CRT was a Wega, the LCD a W series Bravia
And I have seen enough cheap LCD TVs to last me. I tested lots until I found the one I liked,
Want to see bad - S series Bravia - pretty shoddy
Phone gaming, no we want buttons.
£400 on a TV
For a main living room TV maybe 25 years ago.
But prices are more since then.
32" widescreen CRT IDTV was over £1000
My LCD panel is over £1500
Before you criticise I have owned a total of 5 TVs in my life including 2 portables
Re: A fool and his money...
Or even older.
I had a pong type game when I was small.
We do not play COD.
COD is for people who cannot handle more tactical shooters.
Personally I am excited and nervous for Killzone Shadowfall.
Excited because it is an FPS I can actually play.
Nervous because I got into top 2000 using Move and they don't support it any more.
As for PS+, already have that, and still wrking through the backlog of games.
Wow that looks good!
And it is free!
Reminds me of a lot of older games like Defender, Andes Attack and a bit of Xenon2
I always thought it was another term for w@nking
That is the model name of a rather popular digger!
Re: I've had cheaper prostitutes !
That's better value thanks
Seen some multiplayer footage on a XB1 and to be honest it looked all rather pants.
So called next generation but still 720p.
More partical effects and better graphics on some of this generations games,
I am just glad I never bought into the hype.
Re: I've had cheaper prostitutes !
£19 for 90 minutes!
I will settle for 50 or so for £4 (Far Cry 3 on PS+)
120 for £20 (Fallout NV with all DLC)
1000 for @ £70 (Killzone 3, multi player DLC, Navigation controller also used with a few other games)
100 for £15 (ME2 in a sale)
Even got 70 hours or so out of TLOU so far
Re: Good review
Well there are a few of us at work who look at modern new cars and think - no they are ugly.
How many normal cars can now be called nice looking?
I do think the older 318is 2 door looks nice still, I can see one parked next to my big saloon.
Perhaps some reclassification required
We all know Dolphins are pretty clever, not too far behind the average human. And ahead of the average chav.. And a long long way ahead of food animals. (Cattle are pretty thick)
Yet it is illegal to hunt chavs for food so why are Dolphins not protected by law? Why should a sentient animal be hunted like this?
I would also rather that chavs were used as pet food rather than intelligent animals.
TBH I would also include the great apes in the protection.
Coffee yuk - give me tea or something alcoholic
Never understood how people can drink the stuff.
Job for GCHQ and co
Find them, then call Hereford. Gives GCHQ something to do. And bit of training for the SAS.
Re: Another win for the open-source world
Actually Sony are rumoured to be a major donator
I will have to set set my daughter
onto these no direction losers.
Mind you can;t be too bright she tried opening our front door with a sonic screwdriver but we all know they do not do wood
Re: it only does everything
But better for playing games
