    That would be funny as hell! I've always looked at what the "back in my day...' bullshit that this generation will come up with and have a giggle.

    Guess it's possible..... just imagine some kid in the middle of an exam suddenly jumping out of his chair screaming homophobic slurs and calling someone's mom a slut!
     
    Well all be sitting around our kids saying "Why did you have to go do that in the middle of class!  Back in our day we kept it legit bruh!  Pay attention to what yo doing!  Ya'll only get those kill-streaks when you focus bruh!"

    The game has mods on PC and that makes the possibilities almost limitless, but i think the main problem is that it's been around a while and allot of people have moved on. Mincraft ain't really my thing, but i do get the appeal, but eventually interest in any game dies down over time.

    That's it, build part all baught, should be up and running in few days. I decided to go for the R9 Radeon Pro Duo for the video card becuse;
    It outperforms the GTX 1080 on pretty much test I've found. This is a massivly powerful card. For some unfanthenable reason, Ebayer was selling it for around £400 less than it should be. Anyway, here's the final list

    Welcome Back. The site has changed quite allot, but It's still the same random group of gaming idiots, just with other new idiots, except for the idiots who have been here since the start, like this idiot typing this...
     
    Anyway, any help to figure out the new layout and stuff just ask.

    A few points to make;
     
    As others have said, the Rooster Teeth website forums at best look no better than this site. The AJSA went through a big update only last year, not likely to happen again anytime soon. Joe's youtube channel, and thus his youtube drama's and difficulties, having nothing to do with us, so we cant put in changes wether want them or not. As crab pointed out, RT have commercial connections and obligations that make it much easier to use copyrighted content in youtube videos, resources Joe doesn't have. Hosting his videos here with ads woukd still come under DMCA laws, so it wouldn't help. Joe himself very rarely visits this wesite and has no part in its day to day operations, so it's unlikely he'll even see your post anyway.

    I checked out Rooster teeth's forum pages and I REALLY don't get what you are on about.
     

     
    It's blinding white, harder to read, lacking features like signitures and the layout wastes half the screen.  The AJSA forums look WAY better if ask me.
     
    As for the home page and articles, frankly their is very little difference.

    If you genuinely feel that their is something about this website that can be improved your going to have to be more specific.
     
    As for Joe's videos getting claimed more often than Rooster Teeth's, well there's a reason.....
     

     
    Angry Joe and the AJSA don't have commercial partners like this, Joe does have sponsored video's sometimes but that's not quite the same thing.  The upside being that that he and we are free to be more critical.
  13. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Shagger in Amiibo alternative   
    I can see both sides of the fence here. Allot of Nintendo's defenders take pride in that Nintendo didn't put DLC into their games (even though they do since Mario Kart 8 and Zelda: BOTW). Instead, Nintendo did something far worse in the form of these ridiculously overpriced plastic toys with scan codes on them. So I totally get what crab said, if Nintendo want to sell in-game content post launch, have Amiibos if they want, but also give to option to just download the in-game stuff. Right from the word go, this was a bullshit practice and have even turned selling Amiibo's into a tout's market by making the Amiibo's in limited numbers. 
     
    However, none of that changes the fact that this scheme described here almost certainly illigal (BTW, a little reminder to the OP, promotion of piracy or websites and/or markets to support it is against the code of conduct here, so I would recommend check the legality of this and, if's it's not legit, you remove the links from the top post), so I've got no reason reason to sympathise with anyone who get's caught and penalised for it. Just because a product is overpriced doesn't give one the right to steal it. If you walk past a shop window and see a really cool TV, look at price and decide it's not worth that much, smash the window and take off with it, I doupt the police will buy the excuse "but they're overcharging".
     
    I denfently get the point of this, and what should happen is Nintendo take note and start offering codes on the eShop instead of forcing people to buy these stupid toys. Until then, this is the alternitive, and one's own risk to use it.
  14. Shagger liked a post in a topic by Crazycrab in NVidea Titan Xp.... WHY THIS SERIES NEEDS TO DIE!   
    SERIOUSLY...........What fuck is this?
     
    Let me just start by expanding what many others have said on that 2017 has been a very kind year so far when it comes to quality games as it's also been a great year for quality tech as well, for both PC and consoles.  We have AMD's new Ryzen series giving amazing multi-threaded CPU performance at a very reasonable price, Nintendo's new Switch hitting the market, Microsoft have just announced a Q4 release date for the Scorpio with some very impressive specs (more on that from Digital Foundry HERE), AMD's new HBM gen 2 Vega GPU line up is right around the corner and of course NVidea closing out the Pascal GPU series with the awesome 1080Ti........... or so we thought........
     
    Right now I'm in the market for a new top-end system so naturally I've been quite closely following allot of what been going on the past few months and let me tell you something......  The announcement from NVidea is a complete shit show!  As you have undoubtedly surmised by now today NVidea launched (pretty much out of nowhere) the latest member of its overpriced  "My dick is bigger than yours" Titan line up.  Few people expected them to do this less than 2 months after the release of the GTX 1080Ti it and I suspect even less people wanted it, but with no exaggeration this is the most insulting one yet!
     
    For starters let talk about the name, since series' initiation it's gone as follows:
     
     GeForce GTX Titan (Feb, 2013)  Geforce GTX Titan Black (Feb, 2014)  GeForce GTX Titan Z (March, 2014)  GeForce GTX Titan X (March, 2015)  NVidea Titan X (August, 2016) Notice how they dropped "GeForce GTX" to distinguish from it's Maxwell Predecessor, more on this later.  Nvidea Titan Xp (April, 2017)  
    Now here's the thing with these names especially regarding the last 3 which are all Titan X.  Most people when talking about NVidea cards these never really referred to them as GeForce GTX despite them being branded as such.  So when the new Pascal "NVidea" Titan X came out to replace the old Maxwell "GTX GeForce" Titan X everyone was immediately confused especially since the "NVidea" model still had "GeForce GTX" branded on the damn card despite dropping the name!
     

     
    To get over this problem everyone referred to the new Pascal card as the "Titan XP" or "Titan X Pascal" and NOT the "NVidea Titan X".  Now and I'm certain for no other reason than to confuse and annoy everybody they are actually calling it the Titan Xp!  AS IF WASN'T CONFUSING ENOUGH!  This is taking the complete piss, it's like they are blaming us for their mistake!
     
    That not all!  As you probably guessed by the "Xp" it still uses the same Pascal architecture as the previous Titan X, in fact it's almost exactly the same card!  It's the same PCB, same 12Gb GDDR5X Memory, the same DVI/HDMI 2.0/ 3 x DP 1.4 IO layout and the same cooling assembly.  The only improvements are an increase in CUDA cores and memory clock boost.  There is a boost to the CUDA clock as well but it's so tiny it's barely worth mentioning.  Some defenders will by know doubt argue that have made improvements to the current Titan before namely the Titan Black.  However, when you compare how much more the Titan Black gained compared to it's predecessor compared to the Titan Xp there is an obvious problem:
     

    Now the truth will only come out when people actually start posting benchmarks but Titan Black at it's base clock gets a performance gain of about 15% to 18% over it's counterpart at the most.  With the Titan Xp's gain in Core speed in particular so much lower than that I estimate that it will see a gain of about half that at best, an overclocked 1080Ti will easily do better than that, the 1080Ti Gigabyte Xtreme Edition AORUS  has a 10% gain right out of the box.   Hell for the same price you could SLI two 1080's and it would obliterate the Titan!
     
    If you were unfortunate/stupid enough to buy a Titan X Pascal last year Nvidea has just given you a $1200 kick in the ballsack not once but twice now!  Why the hell anyone buys into this garbage is will forever be beyond me.
     
    I'll end with a video form JayZTwoCents who first drew my attention to this, thanks for reading!

    I fully understand why buyers of the Titan X "Pascal" are pissed off, but i don't offer my sympathys. People who buy Titans have more money than they deserve on top of a lack of common sense and only to it because the want to want up to a public urinal as if they were a hoarse. Arrogant, stupid, pompous idiots who love waving this trouser stuffer in peoples faces totally ignorant of the fact that other PC gamers are laughing twice as hard back at them because we know that one's far better of waiting for the top end Ti card instead. Almost the same performance for far less money. The execption being the 1080ti that actully OUTPERFORMS the the Titan X "pascal". This is a massive slap in the face from Nvidia, not denying that for a second and fuck them for doing it, but that doesn't change the fact that the pit of mysery, anger and frustration that Titan X "Pascal" owners are feeling over this is entirely of thier own making for trying to be the arrogant tossers they are. So they now have a choice, spend another $1200 on a Titan Xp (and that's what they're gonna do, the thought of not having the biggest GPU dick is just to much for these people), or accept they still have a beast of a GPU and go with it until the next generation of Nvidia cards come out.

  20. Shagger liked a post in a topic by Cyborg-Rox in What game is this?   
    Okay so I've had this one particular game on my mind for a while now. I remember it as one of the first games I ever played, but I've never seen or heard about it since, and I have no idea what it's called. Let me try describing it to see if any of you can recognize it.
    It's an old 90s PC game with 3rd person platforming. You play as this weird orange/red midget man on a big beach with big wooden platforms and railways all around. I remember there are kids throughout this beach making sandcastles that you could destroy, but if you did these hot police babes would chase and attack you. I also remember at some point later in the game, a large black mechanical pyramid shows up hovering at the shore and you have to do some stuff under it or something.
    I also remember this very distinct pain sound when you took damage. A manly voice high-pitching a clear and short "Owh!"
    Here's a quick sketch based on my memories:

    That's all I got, good luck.

  22. WITHASTICK liked a post in a topic by Shagger in Weekly event updates?   
    The event updates on Xbox started as a way to communicate necessary information quickly to members outside the forums as people might not be logged in to see this info. On the PS4, there was the rooms set up buy WITHASTICK that functioned to the same end, just in a slightly different way, so the updates as we know them on XB1 aren't really necessary. Discord is has also proven to be a useful tool for this well on all platforms. Of course that's just my perspective, it's up to the PS4 guys if the want to employ such an idea, but it wasn't nessessary then and it seems unessessary now.

    Yes, much has changed, but don't worry because we are very much still here with things to do on all platforms. The new Discord server that Crab described (WAY better imo) and a new website layout, but still the AJSA. If you have any questions about the community then please feel free to ask.
  24. Shagger liked a post in a topic by Crazycrab in SWITCHed Off   
    The failure rate of Nintendo Switch's that has been reported so far is around 0.5% which actually sounds quite good but that's not the end of the story.  According to this unofficial poll from strawpoll the amount of users reporting major issues more than 10 times that much.
     

    https://strawpoll.com/9adszeb
     
    Obviously a portion of these are going to be trolls and liars and a higher proportion of those people with failed systems are going to report than those that don't but It seems very likely that the launch hardware failure rate for the Switch is going to be significantly more than the PS4 for example which was around 0.4%.......  and that's going to be a problem.
     
    It's not just failures either, Blunty among many others screen got scratched while sitting in the dock and it can be very difficult to to get the Joy-Con wrist strap attachments off if you put them on the wrong way and THOSE are design flaws.  So make sure you have a screen protector and if you do put the wrist strap attachments on the wrong way I did find this helpful video from M Fasa showing how to get them off.
     
     
  25. Seirex liked a post in a topic by Shagger in Star Citizen news and weekly shows   
    The fact that they are even planning Alpha 3.0 before the new patch is even out tells you everything that's wrong. They will never release this game because scamming people by accepting these so called "pledges" through the "alpha" and thus not having to adhire to purchasing rights is making them a fortune. They are out of excuses, they have had enough time and definitely made enough money to finish this game. That's why the alpha will never end because idiots keep pledging to the game, a gravy train that would end if the actually released it. MMO's go through test phases while they are being developed, and they get patches and updates as time goes on, but they do not just claim to be in Alpha for all eternity,  that is not how this works, or at least not how it's supposed to work.
     
    When they first had the kickstarter, pledges were promised Squadron 42 as the single player portion of Star Citizen. That was the case until last February when they announced that only people who pledged a certain amount before February 14nth  (Yeah, Valentine's day, very funny by the way). It's only after that they stated calling the Star Citizen MMO and the Squadron 42 single player two separate games and now people have to buy the room games separately. Robert Space Industries claimed they did this to offer more to early backers, bur early backers were already entitled to Squadron 42 anyway, so they actually gave them nothing extra at all. The obvious truth is they held Squadron 42 hostage to try and get more pledges before February 14nth for a game, and you said so yourself, they will never bring out of alpha. Scum.
     
    To summarize, Star Citizen is a mountain of bullshit. I'm a big fan of Wing Commander, and I actually want this game to come out, but no way I'm supporting what has become one of the most shady, disgustingly greedy projects in gaming history.
