Re: Stupid and terrible software.

For example, if you minimize it, it keeps running but disappears completely -- not to be found on the start bar or in the system tray. You literally have to go back to the Start menu and relaunch it just to get the UI back. Notifications come through the Windows notification center now, so the 'UI'...

I wasn't planning on adding any details heh. I was mainly discussing Steam and similar content.

I don't expect any direct adult content discussion on normal forums...we have Reddit or plenty of weirder venues for that. :)

Re: Can we talk about Doki Doki Literature Club?

GAMES??? So far so the only Hentai or Hentai like games I've seen you can only play as the hero. Granted this looking at what Steam has available, only what Valve allows? Steam is not quite the place for adult content. A lot of it is censored or all ages versions. Their rules seem to have changed m...

Good gods this makes me glad I don't use Windows anymore or did MS fixed this with Windows 10? Since using smaller SSDs is very common to use for boot/OS drives among geeks, I would think MS would fixed this issue by now.

Re: OK I finally had with binge drinking soda.

I beg to differ, soda isn't cheap if you add it up. Which is why I quit drinking the stuff. Depends where you buy it and if sales are going on I guess. I just got four twelve packs for $8 a couple weeks ago. Can regularly get prices similar if not usually that good at my local place. The only real ...

Should you end up using a cheat program for an offline game, be prepared to pay the price when you log in to Destiny 2.

I'm sure that's totally related.

Can't wait for Divisions X1X patch. That game looked OK on X1 and better on X1X but it's still pretty weak compared with the PC ver obviously.

It always has been. If anything the probable reason it even caught on was how many Intel graphics chipsets back then were incapable of running pretty much anything.

Sounds like he actually does plan to do it, though he'll have to work on shaders and stuff so I'm not sure how long it'll be after release.

Either way, I have no idea when he plans to release. I've been waiting for this game a really long time so :(:):|:]:wot
