A whole bunch of their policy ideas range from completely head in the clouds mindset to downright dangerous for the entire country.
I'd be interested to hear more of a breakdown here, a lot of it seems pretty sensible from where I'm sitting.

Well, discrete is a silly name then :) A big eff off GPU and noisy fan is not discrete :)
Yes it is. It is not discreet though.

Discrete: separate or divided
Discreet: polite and careful

...you realise discrete *is* the gaming GPU, right?

Re: Gaming laptops and fan noise

If I'm round my girlfriend's and need more piece and quiet I'll try the 'discrete GPU' only route too. Pretty sure that's the opposite of what you want? Discrete GPU means it'll use the "real" GPU instead of the CPU, so now you have two heat-generating devices powered on. 2 fans going vs 1 going ha...

Re: Forum Bugs and Errors Reporting Thread

I vaguely recall a major version of phpBB defaulted to a horrible new theme where everything was backwards, but none of the available ones in User Control Panel look like that… bizarre!

Re: Gaming laptops and fan noise

What temperature targets has it been given? They might be unrealistic so it's panicking as soon as the chip gets remotely warm. What temps is it running at when idle-ish, and what CPU even is it? 😁 If it's near-enough brand new (excepting the returned then re-sold bit?) it's not likely any thermal p...

Re: Currently Playing

I've been playing the fuck out of Sixty Four this weekend, it's seriously addictive. The visual design is great, the sounds amazing… Seems like either you'll immediately "get it" and want it, or not see the point, based on polling everyone I've shown this to so far. I love this. A tale in two pictur...

Re: Skull & Bones PC

I've not believed in Ubi for years now. Their launcher on PC has to ask for admin permissions at least three times every time you launch it, and it's been broken like this for years. It may not be the biggest bug in the world, but it impacts affected users every single time they launch the shitty th...

Re: Skull & Bones PC

Some of my friends played the free weekend, their complaints were around bone-headed UI/UX (e.g. you have to clear enough inventory space free in your boat to place its armour in, and then immediately apply it to the ship leaving a big hole in your inventory – why not just have to immediately apply,...

Re: \m/ Metal \m/

I went a few years on the bounce. Was volunteer staff once or twice, and I won free tickets some of the years. At an online competition. ¬_¬ Anyway, I really like it! Very small, so no trekking for miles – big plus. I'd go more often if they had more bands that I like, and/or more mates than just on...

The literally had it perfect to start with! They have put a whole bunch of developer hours into making everything worse!
Sadly this happens bloody everywhere, not just in games. Besides, IOI are literally villains.
