Steam Controller Drops Touchscreen

dadelbunts Re:Good for them (84 comments)

Because its useful for a myriad of applications. A glaringly obvious example is any football game like Madden, it allows you to look through and choose plays without anyone else seeing your choices. For racing games it would be a great place to put additional telemetry readouts that you dont need to often look at, instead of having them clutter your HUD. Adding more shit onto already cluttered screens breaks the immersion. The less you can show that doesnt belong in the games universe on screen. the better.

Report: Space Elevators Are Feasible

dadelbunts Re:No, they're still laughing (374 comments)

SETI as fun as it is seems pretty pointless to me, at least in its current form. I doubt any advanced civilization would use radio communications for more than 200 years. IMO we would be better off looking for other signs, such as Dyson Spheres.

Seafloor Carpet Mimics Muddy Seabed To Harness Wave Power

dadelbunts Tired of "Green" bullshit (20 comments)

Im tired of all these "Green" projects that turn a blind eye to environmental impacts. Just build some goddamn nuclear reactors. Do people really think carpeting the goddamn ocean floor, or building huge dams, wont affect the ecosystem?

Microsoft Reports Record Revenue

dadelbunts Re:Noooo (289 comments)

No. People that would normally buy a console, will just buy a console. Or a gaming pc with windows on it. If there were like 3 Steam Machines to choose from then i would agree with you, but with 14+ different boxes you still have the hassle of having to make sure the game you want to play will run on your particular machine.

Microsoft Reports Record Revenue

dadelbunts Re:Noooo (289 comments)

Valve is also delirious. Only Steam fanboys will buy one of the many overpriced Steam Machines instead of, you know, building their own computers for much cheaper like a normal person.

Member of President Obama's NSA Panel Recommends Increased Data Collection

dadelbunts Re:Change you can believe in! (349 comments)

Agreed 100%. I find it perplexing when people hate on Bush, yet praise obama, even tho he has done everything bush was doing but moreso. Deportations are higher with Obama than with Bush, even tho he promised immigration reform. DEA raids on legal dispensaries are higher than with Bush, even tho he promised an end to DEA raids in states where marijuana is legal. The Patriot Act and its bretheren have become worse and worse under Obama as well, yet people still praise him as some anti Bush political gamechanger.

Privacy Advocate Jacob Appelbaum Reports Break-In Of Berlin Apartment

dadelbunts Re:Four alarm systems and not a single camera? (194 comments)

What will the police do with video that shows who broke into your house? Is that a serious question? Police are lazy bastards but not THAT lazy.

dadelbunts Re:Four alarm systems and not a single camera? (194 comments)

My thoughts exactly. All this security system but no cameras? If you are that worried about people breaking into your house, and think it has happened before, wouldnt you want to know WHO broke into your house?

DRM Has Always Been a Horrible Idea

dadelbunts Re:Gamers don't care (281 comments)

Most people who use Steam dont even see it as DRM but just a content delivery system. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

Winamp Shutting Down On December 20

dadelbunts WTF will i use to stream? (400 comments)

This makes me very very sad. Does this mean they will stop services such as Winamp Remore. I currently use it to stream music to my xbox because honestly there is nothing better. It saves and lists all my winamp playlists and is fast unlike WMP.
