    Cryosec reacted to LAwLz in Activision Blizzard adds 312 new skins to Overwatch to pay for e-Sports by milking customers using Micro-transactions   
    Oh no, a developer adds cosmetic items to a game which you can either get from playing the game or pay for the ones you want! and not just that, if you go with the latter, 50% of the money goes towards esport teams instead of the developers!
     
    What a terrible thing to do!
     
    /sarcasm
     
     
    Edit:
    Actually, I think these are really good news. I think this is a great example of how to do lootboxes properly.
    1) Release the game at full price.
    2) Constantly release patches which adds new characters, tweak things, new maps etc, for free.
    3) Have cosmetic things which you can either get from lootboxes (which you earn by simply playing the game), or by buying specific skins with money.
    4) Give some of the money you earn from lootboxes (50% is a big chunk) to the esport teams to support them.
     
    On top of that, you can get one free skin of your choice for free. 
     
    I see this as a win-win-win situation.
    Players gets a great game with gets additional content for free. On top of that you never feel like you lost because someone had spent more money than you. Blizzard wins by having a reliable stream of revenue to fund future content with. eSports wins by getting funded by the developers themselves. Good job Blizzard!

    CyanogenMod just changed name to LineageOS, and those who worked on the OS separated from Cyanogen, inc. Also, the OnePlus One shipped with CyanogenMod 12 but I don't know about phones with preinstalled LineageOS

    You should follow the Machete order:

    singleplayer is great, and it gets better if you have the patience to collect all guns and parts around the map and try to play it "seriously" with camo and stealth.
    multiplayer is even better as it will get more stuff in the future

    I'd copy the stuff she needs to the external drive, wipe the laptop, boot something like BitDefender rescue (live usb), plug in the drive and scan it (this is just for extra safety). if files are safe, proceed to install windows on laptop and copy back files

    sorry for taking so long, but I might have an answer. Discord wasn't taking up any resources, so I made him check with malwarebytes after joking that he might have a bitcoin miner. Turns out he had multiple instances. I'll update again if this was the problem after all

    another good way to block cryptominers is to block all traffic to stuff like coin-hive.com, coinhive.com and coinhive.min.js (or whatever other websites they point to)
     
    I do this through DNS blocking with a Raspberry Pi (Pi-Hole)

    Cryosec reacted to Julian2000nl in Should i switch to linux?   
    Note: This forum is 99% PC Gamers who don't know better than MS Windows.
    I am a daily Linux user, unlike most people in this thread.
     
    Q: Does Linux have a user interface?
    A: Yes! You have different Desktop enviorments that vary in design, performace and customizability. Most modern Linux based operating systems include a desktop enviorment. Ubuntu runs GNOME, Linux Mint lets you choose between Cinnamon, Mate, XFCE or KDE. Ubuntu looks the most stylish in my opinion but it can be hard on older & slower hardware. MATE and XFCE really shine when it comes to performance, whilst Gnome 3 and KDE Plasma 5 really shine in style.
    My desktop (Ubuntu 17.10):
     
    Q: Will my software be compatible?
    A: This is where a lot of people get confused, so let me explain. Software like Discord and Steam run without issue. Software like Photoshop and MS Office do not run on Linux, but good alternatives are available(Krita and Libreoffice is what I use). I am not sure if Origin works with Linux.
    Applications designed for Windows obviously not work on Linux straight out of the box, however there is a piece of software available called Wine which runs many Windows applications without the use of VM's so you still get great performance. Wine supports many games too, but not all. GTA 5 does not work in Wine for example, but some developer guy managed to get it running a while back so I'm sure soon enough most AAA games will work in Wine. I run Game Dev Tycoon and Civ 5 in Wine which run with more FPS than when I ran them straight on Windows.
     
     
    Q: Antivirus? I do not see Antivirus available for Linux? What do?
    A: The reason Windows needs antivirus is because of design flaws that allow viruses to run and break stuff easily. You do not need an antivirus on Linux. Every time you run something as administrator(root) you have to put in your password, without root priveledges viruses can't do a whole lot of damage. Even if you have a virus, just kill the process and uninstall the package. 
     
    Q: Is it easy to adapt to it?
    A: Linux is very easy to learn and it can be really useful. In my own words; Windows threats it's users like little kids, you don't really need a functional brain to use it. However something like Ubuntu is really user friendly whilst still giving you access to a lot of advanced stuff. Once you start to get the hang of it you'll learn more and more and more! You'll learn things like Bash, APT/DPKG, compiling software, how to use the terminal efficiently, GPL Software license/Open source. You learn at your own pace, and you decide how deep you want to learn.
    My 11yo sister uses Ubuntu every day without using the terminal as she doesn't get that, she never needs assistance from me unless she's installing software because she isn't an administrator. Anyone can adapt to Linux in their own way, that's the beautiful thing about it.
     
    To install Ubuntu you download the ISO from here, then use Rufus to write it to a USB, boot it and install it. It's easy.
    You can also use Linux Mint which is less stylish/modern looking, but is way lighter. Ubuntu and Linux Mint are all based on Debian, so they all work similar. Linux software works on any distro, however the most common installer is .deb which is a package for Debian based systems.
     
    I hope you enjoy Linux! I promise that once you've adapted to it you don't want to go back. It's way more stable, secure and better in general. Oh and with Vulkan, native Linux Gaming will become huge in not too much time.
    Any questions? Quote or DM me.
     
    too long; didn't read: Linux is better than Windows and you should use it.

    Cryosec reacted to Ruffleduffle in Should I refund COD: WW2?   
    the sad truth is, lootcrates and chopped up games are here to stay. Modern games are super expensive to make and produce, and since these shady tactics are generating lots and lots of money in addition to the retail.
    If they where to ditch those tactics the prices for the retails would have to go up significantly probably close to 200 bucks for a game like battlefront with all the branding and stuff.
    I dont like how it is, but it is probably not changing anytime soon.

    Cryosec reacted to JoostinOnline in Should I refund COD: WW2?   
    Mass Effect: Andromeda was a bad decision on my part, I'll give you that.  In that case it was someone else talking me into it.  He had already ordered it for his first PC game, and wanted someone to play with.  It's usually when I absolutely KNOW I want something that I'll order it.  For example, if it's a series I collect like Metroid or Zelda.  I'm also not talking about bullshit skins when I say bonuses.  I mean like when it includes an extra game or something.  I pre-ordered A Link Between Worlds and got Oracle of Ages with it.

    Cryosec got a reaction from Ruffleduffle in Should I refund COD: WW2?   
    I don't want to go off topic hear, but even if I agree on the 10% saving, preordering still means you'll buy something you don't know if it's even finished (ME:A wasn't). bonuses are just stuff you can unlock in game or completely useless (special skins and other stuff)
     
    my way is just to never support EA with preorders
