I know that feeling. My last build was a major pain in the ass, having to delicately wrap cables around things so they would reach where they needed to go and trying to avoid them brushing up against internal fans and obstructing them.

Now, I'm sitting pretty with an oversized Cooler Master case and a small, efficient single-fan, single pci-e power socket card that meets all my needs.

I got this pretty box to replace my factory Dell tower that's still broken from when I tried to throw it out the window during a night terror. I've never put a tower together myself, should hopefully be as simple as illustrating all the wire placements and moving everything over.

Wait, wait, go back a bit, hold the fuck up.

were you sleep walking and grabbing random crap and throwing it out the window? Because I'm having a hard time understanding any scary situation where your first thought would be "The computer must go out the window to stop this" if you'd already woken up.

I threw the box at the window to try and break it so I could jump out (I lived on the fourth floor). The glass was double-plated, so I had to punch through the second layer, but then my mom ran in and stopped me.

It was kinda like sleepwalking, but I remember a lot of it. I had a nightmare about the concept of infinity, and it threw me into a state of hysterical delusion where everything happened in slow motion. I thought I had to destroy the world to fix things, which involved jumping out the window I guess. I had just come home from military school a few days prior, the computer was my graduation present.

I've only had one night terror like that since then. The slow motion came back, convinced me that I was in someone else's body inputting commands, which explained the delayed movement. I sat completely still for who knows how long because I was too ashamed to give commands to someone else's body without their permission. Pretty creepy shit.

I liked the FAL in Black Ops and the enfield.

I mean, it is classed as a sniper, but with the ACOG its kinda like the FAL.

But it sucks because its still really shitty hipfire because its still a sniper.

And, the M14 is a battle rifle IRL!

Its like when they classed the AUG as a LMG in MW2... thats not how any of this works!

>implying
Here are all the actual best guns in CoD, from someone who has over a dozen days of playtime in almost all of them:
>CoD4
M16
>WaW
MP40
>MW2
UMP45 although you could debate this because almost everything in that game was OP which made nothing OP, in a way. As far as full setups rather than just a gun, One Man Army/Danger Close/noobtubes were dominant. But MW2 is also the game where the knife is certainly most effective with Marathon, Lightweight and Commando.
>Black Ops 1
Famas, followed very closely by AK74u (literally an SMG that could have a grenade launcher on it)
>MW3
ACR and MP7 were kinda tied in this one, and you could also make a case for the Striker. But if you play Hardcore variants, noobtubes were king again.
>Black Ops 2
This one is hard to say, I would argue that the snipers were the most OP weapons here, when combined with Fast Hands perk and tac inserts, quickscoping was at peak obnoxiousness in this game. However the Remington was certainly more powerful than it probably should have been, and while it isn't a gun, C4 was absolutely ridiculous in this game.
>Ghosts
Not sure about this one, almost every gun in this game was viable, I guess the Honey Badger was a standout, and I loved the Bulldog, but the most annoying thing people did was spam the Riot Shield/C4 combo because it was REALLY effective in this game until they nerfed it a bit.
>Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3, and Infinite Warfare
Don't know because I barely played these ones, hated future shit, but I did like the Haymaker in BLOPS3
>CoDWW2
PPSH, although there were a lot of good guns in this one
>Black Ops 4
Honestly I see people using almost everything but that might be because the game is still new and people haven't figured out the most OP gun/setup (although PC players rage about the SAUG and Paladin).

Turns out AMD stopped supporting Windows 8.1 two years ago, and they're forcing me to downgrade. What the fuck. This card is the worst thing I've ever done to myself.

Still better than Nvidia's shite.

They can't force you to do anything, at any rate. If you don't want to upgrade to linux, check around ebay for cheap greymarket Windows 10 license keys and then tweak it to be Windows 7/8.1-like.

Step 1. Download Spybot Antibeacon or O&OShutup10.
Step 2. Open Powershell and run Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage to get rid of the useless Store Apps (it leaves the program data behind so if you want to free up a couple gigabytes, you can take ownership of the program folder and force-wipe them).
Step 3. Install ClassicShell.

Optional. Open the registry and delete a few keys to hide the annoying 3D Objects folder and OneDrive folder in the explorer trees.

https://www.howtogeek.com/225973/how-to-disable-onedrive-and-remove-it-from-file-explorer-on-windows-10/

Also, I disable the xbox-integration services (except for the insubordinate game monitoring service which says access denied, so I just take ownership and delete that .exe file).

Also, also, I disable the windows time service, since it keeps resetting the system clock to local instead of UTC.
Use the NetTime service deamon instead.

You think so? 8.1 was a welcome relief from 8's horrible interface for me. Having a normal start menu again was great.

Windows 10's start menu is a disaster. In the first build or so it was okay, but then it's was completely ruined with updates. Thank god for Classic Shell.

But then, it was hammered into us back in school that a good techie doesn't need a gui at all.

No one knows what the Switch Lite/Switch Slim/Switch Whateverthefuck is gonna even have.
And when you say "buy for them to play" do you mean it's for them or you were just gonna let them play it and it was gonna be yours? Either way you should still get one if you have any desire to play any of the games on it.
If it's for you, you can then give them your current old one if you decide to buy the "advanced" model. If it's for them, they'll probably bust it by the time the new model comes out.

Best case scenario, the new model ain't shit so you don't have to buy it anyway. PS4 Slim and Xbox One S weren't worth the upgrade if you already had the base models. With the last Nintendo handheld they went from normal to XL, not really sure if they can go the XL route here.

It would have been for them; they generally are over being babysat once or twice a week, and my nephew likes mario kart and to watch me play mario games (he's six, so he has trouble actually legitimately playing mario games and not just suiciding over and over again). he'd asked for a switch last year since he wanted me to beat super mario odyssey with him watching when he gets babysat over here.

I would buy it for a gift for them to have at their house, but my brother gave a hard "no" veto to that as a gift since he doesn't want him playing games and staying inside, being a giant sports buff that wants his kids playing outside and doing physical activities, but he's fine with him playing games over HERE.



I probably won't really play it much myself, as while I like zelda games and mario games, I don't have enough time to play the games I want to play as is, since the games I like tend to be grindey games-- I have a "backlog" of like 5 games on my computer right now.

I'm gonna be playing that soon when it releases on game pass and I must say the game seems really weird. I understand making a game that realistically depicts schizophrenia but doing it in a magic Norse setting seems like an odd choice. Plus all the donkey fuckers that call it a SJW game because it has a female protagonist.

It feels like Oscar bait, but in video game form to be quite honest. The game even won a BAFTA so it's already fulfilled that role.

Also it gets some stuff wrong about Norse mythology, like that the drowned go to Helheim. If it's out at sea, they get taken to Ran's domain. There's also other minor quibbles I have with it.

The Pict MC is...I like how faithful she is to historic depictions of Picts. I've heard people shit on the dreadlocks, but lmao Picts very often had dreads because it was easier than combing hair. Her outfit is also pretty historically accurate from what I can tell.

The game is like a walking sim but with an okay melee combat system attached. Like...it's got a great atmosphere, but if you're not prepared it'll fuck you up.
>Plus all the donkey fuckers that call it a SJW game because it has a female protagonist
The game has a very well deserved trigger warning at the start, and that in and of itself triggers certain demographics of easily offended idiots. Like...the game triggered the fuck out of me and that warning was well deserved.
