  1. What's even more ironic about this, is that once you buy a license (which isn't even that expensive), it's yours for life. You never have to buy an upgrade, just download the current version and install it. I bought mine years ago and I'm running the current version without issue.
  2. Fine, then a car that can only drive a maximum of 1/4 mph. That a better analogy for you?
  3. How is what I said "the reverse of the standard"? If something functions (operates), then it's functional. If something can be used for its intended purpose, then it's useable. How is what I wrote incorrect?
  4. Well, they're not technically wrong. If I have a car with an engine, but no wheels, it's still functional, even if it's not useable. What makes shake my head are those who claim you need 50/100/200 Mbit (or even higher) to have "useable" internet. Until this January, I was quite happily running 12Mb/768Kb DSL at home, including some online gaming. It was more than enough for me. The only reason I switched was because they were overcharging me, and then had the gall to blatantly lie to me when I had to call their support line. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to have a faster option now, but I actually remember using 56Kb dial up. It was horribly slow, even in the 90's. 12Mb DSL was like going to plaid.
  5. Technically, we don't know that yet. It may well be, but nothing has been announced as definitive at this time.
  6. Data theft is a thing, and a valuable thing for some people.
  7. I just had a couple come into our store Saturday, and bought two ~$2,000 computers (one slightly higher, one just under) solely to play WoW. It's wasteful in my opinion, but it's their money. At least they know they won't need to upgrade again (barring hardware failures) for many years to come.
  8. Peer-to-peer multiplayer (like with the Divinity: Original Sin series) is fine, even though I don't have any interest in that, either. I do agree that most multiplayer games/components are pretty worthless. The few I have played that weren't MMO's, I merely played casually and didn't even try to compete. They simply lack any appeal for me. As for the MMO's I played, I pretty much treated them like a single player game anyway. I almost never grouped with others, and when I did it was only briefly. I get that for some people it's pretty much their only social interactions with others, but that's just not healthy. However, that's straying into a whole other can of worms.
  9. Just to be accurate, they never actually said microtransactions. They said they were considering monetization (specifically in regards to multiplayer), but that's not necessarily the same thing. If you had bothered to read the thread before jumping in, you would have discovered that the multiplayer is going to be a separate component, shipped separately from the base single player game. And just to be clear yet again, I'm not defending anything (because right now, there's nothing confirmed to defend anyway), I'm just clarifying the facts.
  10. I have literally zero interest. I can almost count on one hand the number of multiplayer games I've played in all my years, including MMO's. Personally, I'd have gone with "Daikatana". I doubt any game could ever match the undeserved hype that it generated, not even Fallout 76. Same here, single player only for me. If it can't be played single player, without having to log into their servers, then they don't get my money.
  11. Seriously? I thought Intel stopped doing this crap after the lawsuit against them. Interesting that someone found a workaround, but the title would be more accurate to say that it was one specific program (MatLab). Does anyone know if this has been tested on other ICC compiled software?
  12. And me still with over a year left on my subscription. Drat. No use worrying about it just now, I suppose. I'll have to wait and see what happens when the buyout gets closer.
  13. Don't worry. If you die, I'll tell the overseer you were a total hero. ......I've been playing too much Fallout Shelter.
