I updated the graphics driver based on dell tech support recommendation. We'll see if that fixes it.

We have a couple of new laptops from Dell and we upgraded immediately to windows 10 and they are crashing ALL THE TIME with the bad pool caller error.  Internet hunting tells me to edit the registry which I'm not sure I want to do.

Should I roll back to windows 8.1 to fix it or call dell tech support (I haven't done so because I haven't had a few extra hours to set aside yet).

 Most of these shooters are missing the type of movement people really do when under fire.  Quick reactionary dives to cover or bursts forward to the next area.

I think the fact that you can run on walls indicates they weren't really going for a realistic feel slywink

This looks mostly like Titanfall without robots. Which is not necessarily bad, but I really miss original Black Ops and would welcome a new shooter with that feel.

Some friends and I were just talking about this: Imagine if all they did was repackage COD 4, or MW2 or BO1 and re-released it. It would sell like gangbusters because all of us who have been along for the ride are tired of the escalation of 'features'.  A fresh build of BO would be something, not to mention a game that 'resets' us back to what used to make the franchise amazing.

This is my last COD unless it's amazing.  Only trying it because Treyarch hasn't had a shot yet this gen.  

This exactly.  AW was such a disappointment to me. I hope the movement in BO3 is better.

And all they need to do to fix knifing is to put a counter ability into the game like BF4. If someone stabs at you from the front you can pound the B button to counter it and stab them.  So simple.

Edit: Just watched Teg's vid.  <sigh> I am not going to be good at this game.  Not sure what to do now.

Long ago, I played with Eco in COD something and he was a really nice guy and great to game with.  Like many here, his real life personality seems much different than the persona he crafted here at GT.

I agree with many of the things he says about the liberal bias and how it has killed any and all dissenting voice but GT is just a microcosm of what's going on in our country.

Regardless, his handling of this whole thing has left me feeling embarrassed for him. When I found out that he was Kvothe (I honestly didn't know and I even welcomed the new guy here as I was excited for a new poster), I pretty much lost all respect for his little guerrilla war on this community as, for whatever reason, establishing alts has always been an unforgivable sin.

Anyway, do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?" For it is not wise to ask such questions...

I couldn't find the political thread similar to this one.

As for the humor, I thought for sure you would see the impending loss of religious freedom as hilarious.  Certainly the illegal gag order against those who had their lives ruined for sticking to their convictions must have gotten a chuckle out of some of the folks here.  Don't forget that they were driven out of business for the hilariously trumped up 'emotional trauma and stress' caused by not having a cake made. Also, death threats!

Come on, the jokes write themselves.

What does the first amendment have in common with a tolerant liberal?  They both don't exist anymore!

What does the Bible say about homosexuality? I can't tell you because it's 'hate speech!'

Good times.

Okay.  Well, this went from a light-hearted goof to a pile-on faster than expected, so everyone just move on.

Someone disagrees with you and it's a pile on?  Or is this a witty commentary on how two people represents 90% of the forum traffic now?  If so, clever satire.  If not, isn't this kind of oversensitive? 

Did two people saying they like the content really hurt your feelings so bad that you have to call a halt to the conversation? 

And two people disagreeing with you is a 'hatefest'?  REALLY!?

It's remarkable the deep levels with which we used to discourse on this forum where both sides could lay out their arguments and very rarely did it ever get anyone in a tizzy...and the flow of information was back and forth and mostly leveled and we could all learn from each other. 

Now...we have this.

Quote from: ATB on June 26, 2015, 03:41:13 PM

Now watch as freedom of religion is systematically attacked and eroded.

How so?


"Religious liberty is about more than just the protection for “religious organizations and persons . . . as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths.” Religious liberty is about freedom of action in matters of religion generally, and the scope of that liberty is directly correlated to the civil restraints placed upon religious practice… Had the majority allowed the definition of marriage to be left to the political process—as the Constitution requires—the People could have considered the religious liberty implications of deviating from the traditional definition as part of their deliberative process. Instead, the majority’s decision short-circuits that process, with potentially ruinous consequences for religious liberty."



"The majority graciously suggests that religious believers may continue to “advocate” and “teach” their views of marriage. The First Amendment guarantees, however, the freedom to “exercise” religion. Ominously, that is not a word the majority uses. Hard questions arise when people of faith exercise religion in ways that may be seen to conflict with the new right to same-sex marriage—when, for example, a religious college provides married student housing only to opposite-sex married couples, or a religious adoption agency declines to place children with same-sex married couples… Unfortunately, people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today."


Perhaps the most discouraging aspect of today’s decision is the extent to which the majority feels compelled to sully those on the other side of the debate. The majority offers a cursory assurance that it does not intend to disparage people who, as a matter of conscience, cannot accept samesex marriage. That disclaimer is hard to square with the very next sentence, in which the majority explains that “the necessary consequence” of laws codifying the traditional definition of marriage is to “demea[n] or stigmatiz[e]” same-sex couples… It is one thing for the majority to conclude that the Constitution protects a right to same-sex marriage; it is something  else to portray everyone who does not share the majority’s ‘better informed understanding’ as bigoted.”

There's a 0% chance that SCOTUS upholds any type of legislature banning gay marriage.  I'm not sure constitutionally how they possibly can.

Posting on a forum that is known for leaning left is nothing short of trolling, as ATB has proved.

Honestly. If someone feels deep inside they are black, who are we to say they're not black? Just as if a d00d feels deep inside he is a woman, who are we to say they're not a woman?  It makes perfect sense.

Rather than treat the mental disorder (in this case self-hatred and in the other Gender Identity Disorder), we should embrace it it as 'their truth."

Now we also have the interesting problem of 'agenderism' in which case someone is either both genders or neither.  Again, if we are to embrace these types of things instead of try to correct them, let's go all the way. Also for these folks we must appropriately apply the use of 'they/them' rather than him/her or what's probably more spot on 'it'.

Thus if what's her name 'identifies' as black, then who are we to race shame her and force her to conform? I mean no one should be ashamed of anything they do regardless of how crazy or out of touch with reality it is, right? This is the new normal. There is no normal and no one can be corrected for anything.

Where am I wrong in this?

Its not a lie if she really identifies as black, Lee.  If Jenner taught us anything it is that our perceptions of ourselves are in fact the reality that matters.

AA is correct. There have been numerous map packs and they have all been excellent. If you have premium you get them all plus 'other goodies'.  Word on the street is there will be one more...that wasn't originally planned.

And the only reason I'm really playing this anymore is because there's absolutely nothing else that interests me. It's almost all I have played for 18 months.  Though I've started to chip away at Shadow of Mordor again and am LOVING Rayman Legends.

Had a great night playing Friday night with a new crew and set some new records...went back to basics instead of experimenting with new kits and no vehicles.

Definitely been experiencing game fatigue.  Have a new crew to run with so that has made it fun and have also been trying all kinds of different weapons and loadouts hence some stat drops, but not getting as much enjoyment out of it as I have in the past.  If there was any game out there to interest me, I'd probably take an extended break.

I find all of the husky dog joke panels funny. This one, in particular, though clearly founded in satire, uses a common and light hearted internet meme and juxtaposes it  against the brutality of the real world and makes a powerful social commentary on how far those who believe something are willing to go to defend that belief.  Additionally, it is a startling social commentary on the power of free speech, the whimsy of the internet and its ability to distill major social and spiritual issues into a just a few words and images and also lighten  up Francis.
