    GeekJump got a reaction from handymanshandle in Mastercard No PIN or Signature required   
    No..no...NO!
     
    Didn't we learn from switching to chips? Most people are stupid! I don't want to wait at check out again while someone is fumbling with their fingerprint secure card at the register. NOT AGAIN!  Plus this time the cashier can't take the card and show them how to do it because they need their fingerprint. And, besides the fact I don't think this card will be as thin as current cards, I bet people would still need to sign or something. I remember when chips were introduced and they talked about not needing to sign or put your pin in anymore...the chip takes 2x longer than the old fashion swiping. Security be damned!
     
    Then if the sensor gets dirty...more wasted time.

    It is a shame. Western countries should lead the technology but our internet speed is still total garbage compared to asian countries.

    Well maybe a Frostbyte version of the old KOTOR I'd be super fucking game for that.

    I don't think so. Bioware normally handles Kotor. Battlefront is Dice. He said he misheard/spoke so maybe.
    Don't think you know what toxic means, if anything your reply is "fucking toxic". Name gaming journalists besides him that actually do research, cites sources, and follows ethics. The majority just copy+paste whatever the first person to report a topic says and their unbiased reporting oozes bias and personal opinions. Granted, it isn't exclusive to gaming, but it is most noticeable in that industry. As for me, posting on a forum where I'm allow to express my opinion and where I'm not representing a major news company, I'll stick with my original comment. There are few real journalists in gaming.
     
    And since you took the mature route by adding "I stopped reading there", I'll do the same thing. Don't bother replying unless it deals with the actual topic of Knights of the Old Republic. You can, I'll just ignore it.

    GeekJump got a reaction from SansVarnic in New KoTOR NOT in Development   
    One of the few real journalists in gaming, Jason Schreier, looked into the recent KoTOR rumors and turns out it wasn't entirely real.
     
    The article talks about how rumors of a new Knights of the Old Repulic RPG always come and go over the years and how this one looks to be a similar case.
    The writer of the article reached out to Robertson who said;
     
    How does one mishear something as big as a major franchise coming back soon? My body was ready when the news first started...now I don't know what to do with this.

    That's like saying that calling out the MSM on their bias is toxic. Games journalism has become corrupt in lots of ways, and it's nice to see someone who isn't.
     
     
    OT: Dang, I was pretty excited for this.  There hasn't been a good Star Wars game, Imho, in quite a few years, and I was hopeful for this one.

    From the site: 

    The stuff they showed off looks promising for a passion project. Hopefully they can get it completed and available for download before Disney pulls a Nintendo.

    GeekJump got a reaction from Mutoh in Austin Evans "Rebuilding the $50 Scrapinator"   
    Well how else are you going to get people talking about your video!?!? GOD! /s I've come to ignore titles and thumbnails now. I click the video, check the dislike/like ratio and top comments to make my decision if the video is accurate or not. Sometimes I skip to the end if I'm curious.
    He's not as bad as you make him sound. I would agree he is bit arrogant but not the bad kind you mentioned. But I will give it to you, there are times he says things in videos and I'm like "wow really man?".

    Even with the issues (which were not nearly as bad as the memes, btw), I have thoroughly enjoyed playing this game.
     
    The one thing I'm glad to see is the galaxy map stupidity going away.

    Yeah, when I first played it it was a mod for HL. But how can you get the $$$ from a free mod? *BOOM* Gmod the Game

    GeekJump reacted to ONOTech in [UPDATE 21/03/17] S8 and S8+ Colours and Prices Leak   
    AKA, this phone is target towards your demographic - the enthusiast. That does not mean people are too cheap to buy it. It simply means it's out of their budget because they're not the seller's targeted audience. Not everyone has the luxury of purchasing the very best.
     
    Besides, flagships are generally overpriced and I would expect no different from the S8.

    GeekJump got a reaction from Hameck in Windows 10 has reached Adware status   
    Win 10 definitely gets annoying with the "helpful" pop ups advertising their own products. Yes Microsoft I'm well aware that one drive exists, no I don't want to install it! Same thing with Office 365. I still use 2010 because I bought the home version with the multiple uses. EVERY TIME I open a office program "you can upgrade to Office 365 right now for X% off!" LEAVE ME ONLY! HOW MUCH OF MY MONEY DO YOU WANT!

    omg that name  
     
    I guess existing batteries just weren't...

    Good enough!  
     
    Also,
    My understanding was that this was only an issue with the original solid lithium batteries that you just don't see in use anymore, and that the dendrite problem was solved with the introduction of lithium ion   (not to say lithium ion isn't still quite dangerous, but that problem was fixed afaik).
     
    I guess I shouldn't expect too much from the site that brought us this masterpiece though

    GeekJump reacted to stealth80 in My First Computer Build   
    I bet the 1070 doesn't drop, it doesn't need to. Like I said above, 2x 1070 need to cost more than a 1080ti which is gonna be $699 so that leaves little room for 1070 price drops. Also there is nothing else in that bracket - 1060 and 480 are still really close, if people wanna go faster they go 1070, or 1080, or 1080ti - Nvidia has it wrapped up in every price bracket - $370, $500 and $700 and still competing $200 - $250

    GeekJump got a reaction from PlayStation 2 in PSVR has sold almost a million units, nearly double Rift and Vive combined in only 4 months   
    The barrier to entry is too damn high for PC. To start, you need a beefy PC (so ~$1K), then you need more money for the VR headset (another ~$1K). THEN you need the actual space to play the VR without running into walls/furniture.
     
    Even if you don't already own a PS4, the total cost for system+VR is still cheaper than an entry level VR PC. Plus is easier for anyone to go out and buy a PS4+VR instead of building a VR ready PC.
