    Thanks. I thought you had to manually set a restore point (which of course I neglected to do - bad habit held over from when I was space-starved) before you could restore a previous build, but...

    I'm having problems with the update to 1607. I've heard it has problems with network drives where they stop responding, but it looks bigger than that to me: I don't have any network drives, but I do...

    Yeah, I was thinking of a way around that. I also have some DLC codes for the game, but I'll only give them if the person who took the game code comes forward and admits in front of everyone what...

    Pudding!

    WDK3Q-BK???-56AZ0

    Adding this key to your library is far from a smart move, but you've at least managed to spell 'DUMB' without 'U', so that's something.

    Some of the books you can find are a bit on the nose. You can find excerpts from Karel Čapek's R.U.R. (and even, in one side-mission, someone who pretends to be a character from the play)....

    I've been thinking about why I like this one so much when I didn't really get on with the first two, and I think it all comes down to that bit in the intro/tutorial/dream where Geralt smiles. Even if...

    It's getting to the point where I don't know any more. Maybe video game Gaelic is right and it's the real Gaelic that's wrong.

    You know what really pisses me off? The Witcher 3 is far from the only culprit here (try "any fantasy game ever"), but if you will insist on using Gaelic terms in your games, learn how those terms...

    Hey folks,

    I'm already in a guild. It's small, but we kind of like it that way. Nevertheless, feel free to add me to your friends list. My handle (EU) is thegooseking.8294

    What did it, more than anything, was the growing realisation that it's not all about me. I find it very hard to pinpoint the exact point where my mind was changed. I'm not sure exactly what triggered...

    As someone who did have his mind changed (albeit before this whole farce began), I have to say I don't think it's really that much of a waste of time.

    Let me explain something about journalism.

    It is not a fucking consumer product.

    As Katherine Cross well put it:-


    The fact is you are paying someone (or not) for what they think. When they...

    That's the weirdest part of all this. Yeah, people are asking for more diverse representation in games, but they're asking for it in addition to what's already represented (because that's kinda what...

    It really is. I just saw the tweet:-



    And ok, it's not a "support group", but really, if they think gaming shouldn't provide a voice to the marginalised, then they're really claiming that games...

    Honestly, I think the comparison was way beyond wrong. But seeing how hysterical they get about it after they literally just accused one of their own number (who is no longer one of their number)...

    I was aware of that, and be assured, the irony of a movement that claims to be against journalist corruption trying to make journalists' output dictated by advertisers demands is totally lost on them.

    GitHub shut down the GamerGateOP repository.



    It's clear, it's unambiguous, and it's backed by their actions. Intel could learn a thing or two.

    Yeah, the Lost remark was a little bizarre. Then again, Lost was quite good for the first two or three seasons, so presumably that's the comparison they were trying to make.

    Dreamfall: Chapters has a release date.

    And it's this month! 21st October to be precise.

    I'm excited, but my enthusiasm is tempered somewhat. When a great game has a disappointing sequel, and the developers of the third game take time...

    Ah, I never got far in that because it doesn't like multi-core CPUs or Windows 7 or something. I'm sure there's a way to fix that. I should get round to that.

    I'm not disputing that there was a majority. Let me make that clear. I have no problem with the outcome; only with its analysis. I don't believe that the outcome should be overturned or anything....

    There absolutely was, but I don't think that reason can in any way be assumed to be in the electorate's best interests. It's hardly a surprise that people who do well out of the status quo would...

    I less care about curation and more care about the fact that the store list now finally lets you see at a glance whether or not you already own a game. It's not like I've ever (well, more than once)...

    I might be in a minority for actually enjoying the BBC's take on Robin Hood, but I think something like that with Arkham-City-style mechanics (though, naturally, less emphasis on fisticuffs and the...

    There is a massive, massive difference between civic nationalism and ethnic nationalism.

    Civic nationalism is what happens when you are a minority and would rather not be any more thanks if it's...
