High Court: You've made our SH*T list – corked pirate torrent sites double in a day

toxicdragon

You delete the game, optionally putting it in a sub folder you never open. If its a game you think you will hate odds are you will wait till it is on sale and pay no more than a fiver, personally that's a risk I am willing to take.

X+Y shows teens are teens, regardless of where they are 'on the spectrum'

Re: Classification

humans as a species, to me at least, seem to want to consider themselves better than everyone else, and they will do so how ever possible.

Blurred vision: Google dreams of a campus mixing buildings with nature

Re: Ahhh....

Do you? Good way of getting sheep spawn indoors, which is just irritating if you ask me, the animals can stay in the 2 deep 6 wide hole I dug for them out doors.

BOFH in mugnificent return to Cash'n'Carrion

toxicdragon

Re: shock-resistant?

Have to agree, I am not the most delicate person and have broken army style tin mugs before now.

So having something really tough would be brilliant.

Why does the NSA's boss care so much about backdoors when he can just steal all our encryption keys?

toxicdragon

Then I honestly think at that point some form of action will be taken, who by I don't know but when it gets to the jackboots at dawn aspect then something will happen.

My favorite idea is to let 3 year olds design the danger sign, whatever they could come up with should be fairly universal.

Free Windows 10 could mean the END for Microsoft and the PC biz

Re: Soooo...

Because its microsoft, a company that has a habit of suddenly throwing away the rubber gloves and gallons of KY they showed you and promised they would use and replacing them with a 6 inch wide masonry drill, tree felling wedges and Naga Chillies.

Erik Meijer: AGILE must be destroyed, once and for all

toxicdragon

Thing is the exact same thing can be said for his argument, he wants "move fast and break things" model, this wont work on everything. Yes agile wont work on it all but then again, making software as quickly as possible, pushing it out THEN fixing it after the nuclear dust clouds dissipate is not a good idea.

NOTAMs

I know there are NOTAMs in place for this, although it just said "closed" but I guess you can infer what that means from the location, what is there in place for the boats? I would assume some kind of marker or radio signal maybe but I don't actually know, can anyone offer advice?

#Gamergate folk load flamethrower, roast own feet over GTA V 'ban'

toxicdragon

Re: Sigh.

Just as a quick response to frank.

In the standard single player game there is no females but there is a black playable character, however in the online mode, you can play as females, and since you can basically do the same things there as in single player there is nothing to stop you from doing what was suggested.

Never fear, Glassholes – Intel to the rescue! 'New CPU' for tech-specs

toxicdragon

Could see some potential issues with that, I admit that I don't know much about fire fighting equipment but is there enough clearance in those masks for a pair of these? If its just for video then something like a go pro could do the same job? Although I admit there is a possibility for building plans/team locations and so on.

What's MISSING on Amazon Fire Phone... and why it WON'T set the world alight

toxicdragon

Re: Ads

the ads I have seen feature a woman waving her phone about and having it scan things like websites and tv shows. It may be useful but personally I don't like waving my phone around in a crowded bar to find out what track is currently playing, could just be me.

Re: Wheres the ambition?

Why are people like you never happy? This project has a robot/probot/whatever which makes it cool, it will then take place on another planet which makes it cooler, and then it will do something that is a great challenge, that makes it both even cooler and something worthwhile. Learn to love the world a bit.

Far Cry 4 REVIEW: It's a far cry from Far Cry 3

toxicdragon

Re: Not quite sure...

@Sorry

You are not the only one, thats what made me stop playing, I cant remember the exact wording but one of the NPCs said she felt "really current" at winning something or other, that alone made me stop playing, games are supposed to be fun, not whiny emo stuff with phrases that make literally no sense.

Brighten your November morning: 900 in-browser arcade classics added to the Internet Archive

toxicdragon

Re: Defender!

Most of the "triple A" still do, bet you would be lucky to get 10 hours out of the new CoD for the £50 price, so not much has changed.

Note: I refuse to count online play, there will always be issues like the servers becoming totally deserted the second the new one is released, if you can connect to them at all and so on.

Gimme FF 3 any day, at least 40 odd if not more hours of play and I can get it for a tenner.

Inflatables in SPAAACE! ISS 'nauts to enjoy bouncy castle spaceship

toxicdragon

Its about time, I spent most of my childhood, and more of my adulthood than I care to admit, wondering why I don't live in a Sci Fi funland, if real world stuff starts to look a lot more like the old films and comics, bring it on.

Turn OFF your phone or WE'LL ALL DI... live? Europe OKs mobes, tabs non-stop on flights

toxicdragon

@AC It is also illegal as buggery. Best not get caught with that thing.

Just out of interest say you used it on the bus in a remote location, something happens that means you cant turn it off, what then? Mobile phones may be irritating but considering the upsides, I can tune them out quite easily.

I am one of those sad people that would kind of enjoy that, but then I am one of those weirdos that use the metro on GTA 4 and have the routes memorised so I am probably the person least suited to talk about fun in games.

Getting to the BOTTOM of the great office seating debate

toxicdragon

My main issue with stuff like this is not so much the design but the material it is made out of. It might just be me but the weave in standard office chairs, the blue kind with the back that breaks the second you look at it, feels like sandpaper to me, I don't know if anyone else gets this but I just find it horrible.

I like RPGs and RPG elements, take something like prototype. I struggle against the enemys go away and do a few non combat side missions upgrade and suddenly everything I look at turns into paste, maybe its just I like being petty but I also like seeing my character grow stronger with the effort.

Re: Lunacy

You need to look again. I know there are others in Mojang but take a look at some of the stuff notch himself has done, he worked on Wurm online for a time where the base idea for minecraft came from, and he has done a lot of stuff for the ludlum dare contest, and Mojang have a second game called scrolls which is a TCG admitidly still in beta but its looking quite good.

Primetime precrime? Minority Report TV series 'being developed'

toxicdragon

Re: Can't wait to miss that

It wasn't suspended animation in the unconscious I wake up 70 years in the future to discover its a totalitarian hell hole that things ad jingles are music, they are still conscious for a lack of a better term and are forced to relive the crime constantly as a punishment. I admit I don't know what the physiological long term effects of that would be but thats what happened.
