Well, I wouldn’t say planet…
PC gamers have got to get over themselves.
We get it, PC graphics are better. We know, all you lot are like the douche’s outside fast food stores with your bonnet’s open for your modified Japanese sports cars and bright LED’s. Only for you guys, it’s clear cases showing off your liquid cooling.
In the end, it’s not about the graphical experience, and it never will be. Yes, obviously visuals are to be of certain standard, but it’s not why people use console’s more than PC rigs. It’s pure and simply, the user experience. PC simply cannot emulate the joy of having 2 or 4 guys playing COD together on one screen, screaming in rage when they get shot in the end, or the enjoyment of playing together in one room. The social aspects of console are by far, better than PC. And LAN parties are a mute point. Unless you enjoy spending half a day setting up a network system that works at your friends place with 5 or 6 different PC’s with different spec etc, fine. Have fun. I just switch on my console, hand out my controllers and start fragging like a single, nerdy, virgin. That, and you can play a game, on your couch, in your living room, on your gigantic LED television. Yes, you can do that with a PC, but it’s nearly as simple as a console. I did it for a while, rigged a gaming rig to my television, got my controller working on it, but mapping the control’s to it all the time sucked. I eventually couldn’t be bothered all the time and stopped. Which is my final part; installing. TO THIS DAY. For even legally bought games, I can still run into random problems with the install now and again, rendering the game useless. On console, it’s not even remotely as difficult.
So yes. PC get’s better graphics, but we all knew that. Doesn’t mean PC’s are the bee’s knee’s of this generation of gamers.

Man. I remember this kind of paranoia a few years ago.
It’s the same with downloading anything. Know who it’s coming from, check the comments, see if anyone flags it. Check the file size, is it suspiciously small? Does it ask for dubious passwords and do you need to access a weird link to get it?
Basically, use common sense and you will be fine. I have been using torrents since 2009 and I have never been infected with a virus on either my Windows and OS X machines.
Yes, SOME torrents do have a virus, but it’s also been the case if you got a download link from random forums with dubious content, whatever it may be. But like I said, use your head. And you will be fine.
Cause… They’re pretty darn good at what they’re doing?
Am I missing something here?
First they’re bias to Apple… Now Google. Seriously. I’m getting sick of all these ludicrous claims. I’m sure all the Verge writers secretly own Google coloured Maserati’s in their secret Verge underground car park.

Yeah, true. I personally don’t mind the Microsoft ads, they’re fresh, and somewhat cool to watch. It’s not overly informative. Apple quite literally says “You can do this and this…” Even the surface ad with the party cleanup concept didn’t really make me go “Holy shit, I need a Surface right now!”
Well, that’d be because Apple “did it first” and I would say have a deeper market penetration (that’s what she said) than Microsoft does. You say “tablet” to most people and they say “iPad” in return. Even my parents, when referring to an array of Android Tablets said “Oh, look at all the different iPads”.
I would say however, my girlfriend is easily amazed by bright pretty colours like a moth to a flame. Most likely, the bright coloured keyboard caught her attention the most.
I don’t know why, but my girlfriend was sitting next to me (I will tell you now she is completely clueless when it comes to almost anything techish. Say Graphics Card and she’ll tilt her head to one side and go “huh?” She’ll have her moments though) and when the surface ad came up, she watched it, entranced by the clicking and synchronised dancing and ended up saying… “I want one.” And I looked at her with my eye brow raised and asked, “why?” and she simply said “it looks epic.” If I asked anymore she’ll probably think I’m trying to make her feel dumb or something so I ended up pointing out she already owns an iPad and barely uses it in the first place other than an oversized instagram browser.

I just got sick and tired of most of the guys picking on the whole porn thing. It just got tiring and I felt that although some of the editors tried to make it sound like it was a discussion, I felt they were trying to shove their opinion about the whole thing in Pauls face. And to me, it was clear Paul was not entirely comfortable about discussing it so openly (even if he did write an article on it).
It seems really apparent that it no longer was a case of “the issue of porn” but about “hey, why all the religious hooboo cha cha?” Its as if the guys in there had no clue about the issues addicts have with porn.
What I thought would be a celebration of achievements and discovery, quickly spiraled into a real downer as Josh so eloquently put it. It really shouldn’t have been such a dreary end to everything. I felt almost depressed after watching the live cast. The idea was there, the execution was pretty darn poor.
Only just realised this I must’ve skimmed passed it an answered without reading it carefully.
These are most likely 4K already. Not upscaled.
