eSports Starting To Go Mainstream

locopuyo Re:eSports really ? when darts is a sport, then, s (116 comments)

Why would they show eSports on ESPN when they can reach a wider audience and offer a much better experience with streaming? Traditional TV is going the way of the Dodo, everything is moving to streaming. It is like saying Soccer won't be mainstream until it is on the radio.

eSports Starting To Go Mainstream

locopuyo Re:I disagree. (116 comments)

Cool story grandpa. You played some shitty game with shitty physics so all games must have bad physics. You used IM instead of voice and video chat so the only form of online communication must be through text. You played some shitty game at a low level so hand eye coordination and reflexes don't matter in any game. You didn't make any friends playing online that you keep in contact with and meet in real life so no one must be able to.

Your failure isn't stopping it from becoming the norm.

I bought a couple $15 LED bulbs on Amazon almost 3 years ago. I haven't needed to buy any since then because they're still going strong and supposedly last a lifetime.

Why China Is Worried About Japan's Plutonium Stocks

locopuyo Re:Serously? (398 comments)

They were quite dedicated

In 1944, Lt. Hiroo Onoda was sent by the Japanese army to the remote Philippine island of Lubang. His mission was to conduct guerrilla warfare during World War II. Unfortunately, he was never officially told the war had ended; so for 29 years, Onoda continued to live in the jungle, ready for when his country would again need his services and information. Eating coconuts and bananas and deftly evading searching parties he believed were enemy scouts, Onoda hid in the jungle until he finally emerged from the dark recesses of the island on March 19, 1972.

locopuyo Just a prototype for development (41 comments)

It is just a prototype for internal development. It isn't meant to be competition with the Rift. It is what they imagine the Rift and other VR headsets becoming.

Well you have to look at what the goal of having someone in prison is. Is it just to punish them, or is it to fix them?

locopuyo Re:let me be the first to say (79 comments)

Reddit is comprised by a very high percentage of emotional young people. Reddit's voting system ensures that every post complies with its emotional teen hive mind. It is rare you find any valuable discussions on Reddit because the voting system turns everything into a circle jerk.

Visit Reddit if you want to know what the hive mind is thinking,

locopuyo More people play on PCs than Consoles (245 comments)

There are some good info graphics on actual data here. PC has 51% of the playtime marketshare and consoles only have 30%. http://www.superdataresearch.c...

Free to play games are where the big money is now. League of Legends made $624 million in revenue in 2013. They even gave out $14.3 Million in tournament prize money.
Crossfire (a counter-strike clone popular outside the USA) had the most revenue and made almost a billion dollars in revenue last year.

A 2560x1440 VR Headset That's Mobile

Yes, Oculus isn't stopping at 1080p, they said they need at least 1440p, but might go higher, and might possibly have multiple versions that are more expensive but have higher resolution.

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

locopuyo Re:Why are you using the touch interface with a mo (294 comments)

I agree the shutdown should be easier, but it isn't as hard as you make it out to be.

1. Move mouse to bottom right corner and the menu appears
2. Click Settings
3. Click Power
4. Click Shut Down

There is a way to make a shut down shortcut on your start screen but it is complicated. You should just be able to right click the power button and add it.. really it should be there by default.
