  1. Haven't used it but, from what I've read, I'm cautiously optimistic. Windows 8/8.1 had a lot of good tech improvements over 7 but made a lot of compromises on the desktop usability side (said as someone who has used 8.1 on my laptop). Looks like 10 is rolling back most of those to more sane versions while keeping the underlying advances. I'm hoping my optimism isn't misplaces as Microsoft has said they aren't planning on bringing the next version of directX to 7, so we're going to have to update sooner or later.

  3. Honestly though...can you blame them for forcing an upgrade? It takes a lot of money to keep supporting legacy operating systems. Let's face it...come Windows 10, Windows 7 will be considered "legacy". Windows 7 HP is already end of support. I have used the tech preview of Windows 10 and I like it. Now before I go further, I should note that I love Windows 8.1. I never use the new Start Screen and I have no problems using the desktop. I love the new "power user" menu that you get with right-clicking the start button or pressing Windows+X. Windows 10 brings many visual improvements. For starters...the window border is now only 1px wide. There are other UI improvements that you can read about too. One of the biggest improvements are in the "snap" features. You can now snap to quadrants instead of just halves. There are also suggestions made when you snap the first window, suggesting a second window to snap beside the first. Along with these changes, there are now virtual desktops. While I think they need some improvement in the way they behave, it's a start. This will be nice for power-multitaskers and those with only a single monitor. For anyone thinking that they "brought back the start menu", you may be disappointed. Essentially, the new "start menu" is the exact same thing as in Windows 8...except it's smaller and looks like a "menu" instead of a full screen thing-a-mah-jig. As techies, I hope you realize that the complaints over the Windows 8 "start screen" are unfounded...due to the fact it operates nearly identically to the Windows 7 (and previous) start menus. Personally...I use the start menu in this fashion - Press Windows on keyboard, type an application, press enter. I can do the exact same thing on Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. The media has obviously latched on to the "Windows 8 sucks" bandwagon for ratings. Technically, Windows 8 is fantastic! I am excited to see what they have improved upon in Windows 10. So far...it looks great!

  4. This review is awesome! I watched it this morning before I went to work. I think you bring up a lot of great points! I had a friend who manages the game testing team at Ubisoft, not sure if he still works there. He may have moved into a lead game developer role, I know that was his goal. I've decided to look him up on LinkedIn, I'm going to send him your video! :)

  8. Hey folks, I just wanted to put in a message about the Memorial Day weekend we're heading into. For most people, Memorial Day is more of a 'national barbeque day' than a day to remember our veterans. Be aware, as you go through your day and your weekend, and you get your party on, that we are able to do so solely by the sacrifice of our neighbors, family, friends, and heroes; those who pick up a weapon and stand up in the face of evil. I know that some folks probably don't agree with the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, but know that there are very evil men who would kill you, your parents, brothers and sisters, your children, simply because we were born in a different country than them. I am a firm believer in the adage "All that is required for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing". The image here are the soldiers from my very own unit who were killed on my last deployment. Six of the eleven were from my company alone. Know that these men laid down their lives, and left their families behind, to ensure that we are able to enjoy the freedoms that we have. This is only a snapshot. These are only the men from my unit who gave their lives. This does not include the many more from all branches who have paid the ultimate price for freedom. This does not include the men and women I know, the countless I don't, who have left arms, legs, blood and guts, and even pieces of their souls on foreign soil. We play a series of games that glorify warfare, make light of combat, bloodshed, and killing. Sometimes it's easy to overlook the horrors of real war, the devastation that a real battlefield can bring. Remember that as we play, guys. Say a prayer for those who came before, those doing it right now while we enjoy a weekend, and those that will be there in the future. "From time to time the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots." Soda, Buzz, Ira, Hardin, Bolen, and Hizon, you guys are dearly missed.

    Windows 7 or 8?

    With Windows 8, Microsoft is trying to converge the user experience of desktop computers with touch screen mobile devices. The concept is not bad, but Microsoft has never been a very good software creation company, they just never had the leadership for it. They are a software production and distribution company that is trying desperately to stay relevant now that they missed the boat on mobile devices. Windows 8 can be configure to be a good system, but I have neither the time or patience to do that. Windows 7 does everything I need (for gaming).

    Grand Theft Auto 5?

    There are a few. I wandered by a gas station somewhere and found I could walk in. I was prompted that I could point the gun at him and rob him so he emptied the register. I tried this a second time somewhere and it glitched. The clerk just stood there like he didn't know I was there. So I went behind the counter and shot him.

    Grand Theft Auto 5?

    Messing with NPCs is a weird guilty pleasure. I dunno why. I caused enough mayhem that cops showed up and shot one of the drivers. I also saw a random person off the street steal the ambulance. What is really crazy though is to grab the Firetruck and blast the police with the water cannon.

    Grand Theft Auto 5?

    Reminds me of my favourite pass time on Assassin's Creed. Inject some guards with poison, then throw coins at them and watch pepole run over to pick the coins up and get slashed up by the guards who are flailing around with their weapons. Never. Gets. Old.

  37. "I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" -Dirty Harry I think of that every time I pull out my Underboss...
