  What are you favourite songs from 2013?
Posted by: Selegraphon - 27-03-2014, 01:37 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (9)

Here's a playlist of my top ten favourite songs from 2013, starting with #10.

Please note that I chose to limit my choices to one song per artist for the sake of variety.

Please also note that Glare, by Sheep, Dog & Wolf, would have been in there somewhere if there was a studio version uploaded to YouTube. So I guess it's not technically my favourite 10, but it's close enough.

Let's see your picks.

EDIT: Sheep, Dog & Wolf has since released Glare as a single, so the playlist is updated.

  Facebook Acquires Oculus VR
Posted by: Pythagean - 26-03-2014, 12:51 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (7)

Today is a sad day, Facebook has bought Oculus...


This news has really killed so much of the excitement which has been building around the Oculus Rift for me. I was sure it had to be some form of sick early April Fools joke.... bu no

Facebook is known for it's intrusive tracking of users, not to mention it's extreme focus on advertisement, intrusive logins, and focus on linking to real-life data collection. The appeal of Oculus to me (as compared to Sony's Morpheus VR, for example) is because it is on a PC platform, and thus allows us freedom over what we want to do with it. This partnership will cause the Rift to become "commercialized", so to speak; for example, targeted ads overlaid over games, intrusive tracking of applications or programs that we run, brickwalling indie developers from the rift, and allowing our personal information to be sold/marketed/given to facebook?

I can't even describe how disappointed I am in Palmer Luckey and whoever else at Oculus was involved in this decision. The goals and mission statement of the company was one of the main reasons why I was so excited for the Rift, they were really focusing on taking their time to create an amazing device, so that when it did finally release to the consumer it would blow people away. Now with Facebook wanting to accelerate the development and release a device ASAP to beat Valve and Sony, I can just feel that it's going to be hit with massive backlash due to the obviously unfinished nature of the product, which will seriously hurt the VR market. Competition may have set back the dream of Virtual Reality for another 10 years.

Anyone have any other thoughts on this news?

Exclamation GOG Sales!
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 22-03-2014, 06:31 PM - Forum: Video Games Discussion - Replies (16)

[Image: AGbMAFr.png?1]

We have a Steam sales thread but what about a GOG thread? Arguably, and for me personally, its a better games distribution service than Steam.

What is GOG you ask?

Quote:GOG is a computer game sale and distribution service operated by GOG Ltd. The games can be purchased and downloaded online, and they are distributed without digital rights management. The prices of products typically range from about $5 to $10 for older games, along with special offers in sales held several times a week. Some newer titles have a higher price.

The user does not have to install special client software to download or run the games, although an optional download manager is available. After downloading, the customer retains full ownership to the products: they can be archived on any personal storage media for unlimited time. They are independent of the customer's GOG.com account.

This makes GOG absolute win.

Currently on sale we have:

The first 3 Hitman games:
  • Hitman: Codename 47
  • Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
  • Hitman 3: Contracts

For 10.37 USD (12.15 NZD)

Also they have a Weekend game sale going on:

Considering picking up the Hitman games. They any good?

Post any other good GOG sales or recommendations here!

  A Dame to Kill For
Posted by: Kesh on Hend - 08-03-2014, 08:35 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

When it comes to Robert Rodriguez, it's either really bad or really good. Given that Sin City was part of the latter group it's safe to assume that the sequel/prequel will be too.

Sad to see that Dwight isn't going to be played by Clive Owen but there is a story reason for this. Instead he'll be played by Josh Brolin. Other notable cast members are Ray Liotta, Eva Green and Joseph Gordon-Levitt who will play Johnny, a character in a new segment written exclusive for this film.
Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba will reprise their roles.

The stories in this film will be "A Dame to Kill For" which is set before "The Big Fat Kill" from the first movie, "Just Another Saturday Night" which was a short story like "The Customer is Always Right" that was originally going to be in the first film and two originals "The Long Bad Night" starring JGL and "The Fat Loss" which is a sequel to "That Yellow Bastard".

Am Hype.

  J.A.V.G.T. (Just Awesome Video Game Trailers)
Posted by: Lazy Dave The Monstrosity - 06-03-2014, 05:19 PM - Forum: Video Games Discussion - Replies (5)

Everyone's seen one: a trailer which takes their breath away. A trailer unlike any other, causing you to doubt whether a trailer can ever again be better than the one you've just watched. A trailer urging you to pre-order what looks to be the greatest, most hard-core, beautiful, scintillating, infuriatingly perfect game of all time!

And it's a flop.

Well screw the game (yes, I'm looking at you Dead Island)! Post your favourite/new/awesome video game trailers below. Don't be shy, if you enjoy it, it deserves to be in this thread. Maybe give a little description as to why you like it so much.

  Blue's PC Component Guide
Posted by: Blue Ghost - 06-03-2014, 05:05 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Buying hardware for that new computer you want can be a daunting task.
So if this is you, don't worry. I have hundreds of years' experience with building PCs so I know what I'm talking about.
Blue's simple guide will help you build an awesome system without breaking the bank.

The Box

[Image: 19-116-942-TS?%24S300W%24]CPU: Intel Core i5 4440
From our friends at the bluechip company Intel, whose logo is also blue, we have the powerful Core line of processors.
This processor has, not 1, not 2, but 4 cores! with the latest state-of-the-art Haswell microarchitecture running at an insanely fast 3.1-3.3GHz clock speed. Includes features such as VTx, AVX2, EIST, AES-NI and plenty more cryptic acronyms and buzzwords to keep upper level management (or your mom) happy. It is one of the fastest processors you can get today, and won't blow your budget.
Also comes in a nice blue box, so you know it can be trusted.

[Image: 20-233-365-Z01?%24S300W%24]RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
The RAM has the capacity to really pack a punch, and certainly looks the part as well. Two 1600MHz sticks will allow a dual channel configuration boosting transfer rates beyond what a single stick could provide.
Don't know whether to use Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer because of RAM constraints? Well, why choose? With these, you could run all three at the same time!

[Image: A2E1_130294889268906250BJM9EF7z3h.jpg]GPU: Sapphire VAPOR-X Radeon R9 270X OC
Despite its name, this is hardly vaporware.
We all know that graphics is important. Your primary feedback source from your computer are the graphics, so you need it to work well. Like seriously, you don't want your blues turning into greens, cause that would be horrible.
The R9 270X gives you plenty of bang for little buck, and won't run your PSU dry. Plays Displays all your games on High in High Definition (sorry, you have to do the playing here).

[Image: 13-130-700-TS?%24S300W%24]Motherboard: MSI B85M-G43
Well, it's a board you plug everything into. Move along...

[Image: 20-148-693-TS?%24S300%24]SSD: Crucial m500 120GB
For blazingly fast system performance, you can't go past this gem. Not only does it come in a blue box, it packs plenty of performance to make you go blue in amazement. Launch anything in mere seconds. Life is short (and I should know) so don't waste your time waiting for the hourglass to disappear.

[Image: wd-caviar-blue-1tb-64mb-wd10ezex-sata-6-...oo85@2.jpg]Hard disk: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
Unfortunately, SSDs probably don't give you enough space to store everything that you may want to store*. So here we have the value conscious Caviar Blue, which is the perfect balance between space, speed, price, power usage, noise and sanity which most other drives of different colours seem to lack.

* Often space is quoted in bytes, which no-one understands, or sometimes in songs or movies. But in all seriousness, you'll want to know the storage size in terms of pornography because that's what's going to occupy most of the space. Unfortunately, as a ghost, I can't give much of a guideline on this - ghosts don't really have any need when you can just drift through walls undetected and see in the dark, but I can try to estimate. This 1TB drive will likely store enough porn to last you a lifetime, after which, you can just enjoy the afterlife like I do.

[Image: 27-135-247-TS?%24S300W%24]Optical: ASUS 12X Blu-ray Internal Drive
Even though blue rays are awesome, you won't get to see them in action.
Optical media is dying anyway, and unlike mortals, don't have any afterlife.
However, if you still happen to have a large collection, it's probably difficult to completely skip having an optical drive.
This Blu-ray drive, using the power of Blue, will support any optical disk format that you have or might get. And it does everything that you'd expect from an optical drive.

[Image: 11-148-012-01.jpg]Case: Logisys Blue Clear Acrylic ATX Mid Tower
The first thing people will see when you show off your beast is the case. As we all know, first impressions count, so you definitely don't want to skimp here.
Well just look at that thing - it speaks for itself.
Add in some BLUE LEDs and it'll even give off a translucent blue glow in the dark - perfect for you mortals who want to try to be as cool as me.

[Image: 17-182-044-13.jpg]Power: Rosewill Stallion 500W
Many gamers will often overspec on the power supply, when there's really no need. This 500W beauty will supply enough power for all your every day needs.

continued in next post

[Image: 26-618-056-TS?%24S300%24]Mouse: R.A.T. Tournament Edition
To contro the beast of a machine, a mouse simply won't do - you need a RAT. This RAT allows full customisation of its size improving ergonomics as well as your ability to command.
Graded for tournament play, this certainly is as impressive as it looks.

[Image: A2C5_130374429106680521fg0hYeuz8g.jpg]Keyboard: Ducky Mechanical with Cherry MX Blue
The blue glow will allow you to see what keys you're pressing in the dark, whilst allowing you mortals to have a faint blue aura around your hands.
Tactile and audible feedback means no more "did I press the key?" moments, whilst this mechanical keyboard will last a lot longer than standard rubber dome keyboards.

[Image: 24-260-047-TS?%24S300W%24]Monitor: Dell Ultrasharp IPS 24 inch
The Dell range of Ultrasharp monitors are deservedly famous for being top notch in quality. From the big multinational company which sports a simple blue logo, you know it's a name to be trusted.
The IPS panel is perfect for displaying a wide range of colours, from the deepest of blues to shades of blue that could blind you, these monitors can easily handle over 65 thousand different shades of blue. Not to mention that blues stay blue even over a wide viewing angle.

Colours Guide
So you may be wondering: why blue? For one, blue stands for value and performance, something you definitely want in a machine.
But for completionist's sake, I've compiled a list of the various colours you may find and what their intended target audience is. So if you fit in within these alternative categories, you may wish to seek products of these colours.

Green: environmentalists
Black: goths
Red: vampires
Yellow: environmentally concious vampires
Purple: vampires who try to be cool
Blue: cool people

Grey: a rather dull colour, and as such, you probably won't find many products of this variety, if any

If unsure, my recommendation would be on blue products, as they suit a wide audience.
Remember, you can always bet on Blue.
