That's what did it for me and my brother. We both grew up with games starting with Commodore 64. He's so damn good at any game that first day Portal was out I seen him blasting portals through dodgy corner geometry. He got me started with Half Life 2 radiator glitching. Radiators are awesome: can make grav sleds that… » 12/11/14 1:54am 12/11/14 1:54am

Thankfully we'll likely never see VAC get any more intrusive than it already is. You have no idea how intrusive anti-cheat can become, not just for the player but also for the developers. It's nice there are ones like VAC that just chill in the background and does it's own thing while GTFO when performance is required… » 11/25/14 6:54am 11/25/14 6:54am

Just look at speed runs to see the degree of broken as the years went by. NES, SNES, Gameboy and PS1 had a lot of games that you really had to try hard to make it crash.

VOIP, businesses, homes, cell phones, appliances and even some light bulbs all have to pull their IP addresses from the global pool to be globally accessible. Yes there are appliances and light bulbs that won't use your wifi but instead a cell signal of some sort. » 11/06/14 1:52am 11/06/14 1:52am

I just want to write code, I don't want to log into Reddit or Steam or whatever new social fad is going on. When I get in the zone I want nothing to distract me, that's when I can write code that deserves to have a… » 10/29/14 1:41am 10/29/14 1:41am

Have they even watched the games that are streamed? Seriously the games are far worse than any twitch streamer I've ever watched as far as sexuality is concerned. Why can't we attack the real heart of the problem instead, sexual immaturity... oh wait that would require actual work to solve, my bad. » 10/28/14 1:41am 10/28/14 1:41am

Valve has been ahead of the pack on games with each title they've come out with. Think about the games when Half Life came out. How many of them had you using your environment to progress. Then when that style of environment manipulation became standard FPS game play they came up with Half Life 2 which took it to a… » 10/17/14 6:20am 10/17/14 6:20am
