    Incognito mode isn't totally worthless. It's the best way to prevent cross site request forgery attacks, which is a lesser known attack where a site will make requests on your behalf to other sites y...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Can someone explain Ready Player One to me?. on the Off-Topic board

    The main character is entirely unlike-able and the plot is like a little kid wrote it. "I opened the door and there was a rippin' guitar! Most people would just pick up the guitar, but it turns out,...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Did Patrick Klepek leave Kotaku?. on the General Discussion board

    Any chance someone could TL;DR what this is all about? I can't do much google sleuthing with most of these sites blocked where I'm at.

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Xbox History / Interview (Via IGN) "3 Xbox Bosses...". on the Xbox One board

    Yeah this is a fantastic discussion, and they don't seem afraid to open up about some things. I'd never heard of the AMD/Intel thing before -- having to break the news to the guys in the audience dur...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic A game you can't preorder?. on the Hitman board

    Sony wasting a bunch of money on worthless "exclusives" like this. Did Microsoft even have a single "first on Xbox!" type exclusive at this E3? Maybe they finally realized that a few "real" exclusives...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Do you think developer/publishers know their game is bad?. on the General Discussion board

    Well, what are we talking about when you say "bad?" Developers probably know if their game is objectively bad (e.g. completely broken), but I don't necessarily think they'd agree with you when it's su...

    @ildon: except he was just doing ice spells, not water. It totally makes sense that ice would not make it move, it freezes enemies

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Did the Thorn bounty break Brad?. on the Destiny board

    I like Destiny a lot, but the PVP has become toxic and the worst part of the game (if it wasn't already from the start). Their balancing has made it so only a handful of guns are viable anymore, and t...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic What should I do about my graphics card?. on the PC board

    If you're thinking about possibly getting oculus, sounds like a 970 will work but isn't quite good enough for them to recommend it. I'd wait it out until prices come down and there's something you m...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Jeffs Take on Destiny In General. on the Destiny board

    It's strange that they have the full range of matchmaking in the game. In patrols you are sometimes thrown in with another person and have no control whatsoever with playing with them, in strikes an...

    This is really fantastic, much more relatable and readable than other EVE stories I've tried reading. I'd love to read more!

    Well firstly, you should learn the basics of vi no matter what for when you need to edit something on a brand new server instance or on a tiny device that you can't install additional stuff to.Beyond ...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message on the post Mario Party Party 4 - Part 01.

    Is there something weird with nintendo characters speaking German? It really sounds like Toad is saying "jawohl" (yes sir) in this game, and I already assumed Wario has always been saying "so ein mis...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Will Jeff Ever Do A "Premium" Thing Like Dan and Drew?. on the General Discussion board

    I feel like I saw him answer something like this on his Tumblr a long time ago, and it was a not-yes but not-no sorta thing. My google skills are failing me in finding it though.
