- David Hayter will not appear in MGS V. The game will be critically acclaimed however it will be divisive among fans as story will tone down a lot of the craziness that the previous entries in the series were known for.

MGS V will be beloved as a game, but Keifer's performance will be so minimal and/or phoned-in that it will dominate much of the conversation. Every review will mention it, every forum post will be "I loved phantom pain but man if only they hadn't gone for the stunt casting" or "I liked everything about phantom pain except for (nitpicks) which maybe they could have fixed if they hadn't wasted half the budget on the 24 guy!!!!!!!!!!!" and it will also put Konami in an awkward position for the inevitable sequel because they can't really go back to David Hayter. As a result, MGS 6 will be the one that finally stars The Boss, but that's for the 2017 Predictions Thread.

Also, Quiet's character arc (and the details of her traumatic past) will be so wrongheaded and remarkably clueless that the blogger thinkpieces will block out the sun.

@spraynardtatum: Yes, and the best way to curb harassment and stalking is to force people to use their real identities in-game and online

Releasing their games in early access is NOT a solution. In fact, it's basically telling customers to get used to playing buggy, unfinished content.

@fajitaboss: Well, more money going to the publishers anyway

You'll know if your motherboard is incompatible with your gpu if you try to plug in the gpu and the hole is completely the wrong shape. You're upgrading from a gtx460 so you probably have a pci express port which is basically the standard and has been since, like, 2006? The bigger problem might be that the card doesn't fit in your case, but 460s are already pretty huge so you might not have to worry.

If your power supply doesn't have enough wattage your computer will still work, it'll just be really choppy and a little thing will pop up that says "Hey you don't have enough power!" Once I installed a gpu and completely forgot to plug the fucking thing in entirely and this was pretty much the result. If this happens I guess reinstall your 460 to hold you over until you can go buy a new power supply.

You don't have to worry about hurting yourself or your computer during gpu installation. Just don't rub your feet on the carpet and then zap the motherboard with static electricity like a jerk and you'll be fine. It's insert-tab-A-into-slot-B.

It seems fine to me. Might be an issue with AMD, I have an nvidia. Those sorts of things tend to be fixed relatively quickly.

Also just try rebooting, maybe you have a background process eating up your cpu.

I played Dys4ia and I'd argue that I still have yet to play a game "as a transgender woman in transition". It seemed way more interested in just telling me what that is like, and then presenting vaguely related microgames that are not ludically congruent, instead of letting me experience it.

I picked this up in the summer sale. so far the framerate has been decent (with loading jitters sometimes that eventually smooth out) so long as I keep the advanced graphics option off.

But what's really pissing me off is that I'll be in the middle of a good run and then my fucking screensaver pops on. I mean, really? Really?? Is there any way to fix this short of manually disabling my screensaver when I start playing and then re-enabling it when I'm done?
