This is amazing.
Unlike the multiplayer BETA on PC which worked flawlessly back in August this “game mode” and reason theres no single player in Blacks Ops 4, is a fucking piece of shit on PC. It dont work.
Ive tried many times to get it to work but it just quits and wont start anymore. Seems like the folks at “Beenox” want PC players to debug the game for them lazy cunts.

No mans sky rolled out a new massive update almost two years since the launched a few weeks ago.
When it was first launched back in 2016 the game was an interesting mildly fun yet empty experience. I let myself get sucked into the hype and found it quickly got boring.
Fast forward to the “NEXT Update” in july this year which added a host of new features to the game.
Whats new and why its better?
Same old problems remain
- Performance problems:
Same issues since i last played it in 2016, performance on PC is very unstable. There seems to be no way to improve it fully.
- interface menu system:
No mans Sky on PC must have one of the worst interface menu systems ive ever seen. Now i understand why the menu system is the way it is as the game is also running on the PS4 which itself in an impressive feet but theres is no excuse for the menu system navigation on PC and Two years later! Its awfull
Some screenshots of the game;
He was one the first people i followed over to youtube from his podcasts about Word of Warcraft. I remember when i got into World of Warcraft i used to listen to his “Blue Please” podcasts. He had a fantastic passion for talking about games with his “WTF is ” series. He was a great gamer consumer advocate.
When a games company did something underhanded he called them out and i salute him for every thing he did.
Below he chats with Etan and Hila from H3H3 Productions on youtube about cancer and its well worth a watch. This man’s attitude to the fight he had was remarkable.

Many of you know the incredible TotalBiscuit aka John Bain. Many of you also know that he’s been publicly fighting cancer for the last 4 years and recently passed from that fight.
John has had an incredible game’s media career that spans at least 13 years. During that time he’s covered countless games including World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2 and it would be pretty hard to make a full list of games he’s supported. He was a journalist, entertainer, critic, philanthropist, and general good dude. And he was one of the best.
In this career there are no medical plans, no retirement funds, and no golden parachutes. The financial resources available are limited to the support of viewers and advertisers. John’s family Genna & Orion are faced with short and long term challenges around housing, living expenses, income security, medical care, and the special needs of Orion (their son).
Please join me in supporting Genna and Orion in this very trying time to help take one burden off their shoulders.
Note: I have personally talked to Genna. She knows and is very appreciative of anyone showing their support. Genna is the only person who can withdrawl from this gofundme.
Note to streamers: If you’re looking to support the family, you can use this campaign if you want to raise money and have it go directly to them.
My first Computer was an Amiga 600 and it was one hell of a machine for its time. This was around the time of consoles like the SNES and SEGA megadrive which my friends had.
The specs: 7Mhz!
The Amiga 600, also known as the A600, is a home computer that was introduced at the CeBIT show in March 1992. The A600 is Commodore International’s final model based on the Motorola 68000 CPU and the ECS chipset. Wikipedia
Release date: March 1992; 25 years ago
Memory: 1 MB (80 ns access time); (6 MB Maximum, more with unofficial expansions)
Date introduced: March 1992
Manufacturer: Commodore International
Successor: Amiga 1200
CPU: Motorola 68000 @ 7.16 MHz 7.09 MHz (PAL)
Predecessors: Amiga 500, Amiga 500 Plus
An emulator is the software you need to run to create a virtual Amiga on your PC/MAC/Linux etc. You need this software, its free and the most popular two ive found are below;
Battlefield 1 came out last November and its a great game, i havnt had time to play it till this weekend.
I was playing the “War Stories” and there was a piece of music that really stuck in my head, its an incredible piece of music. The hairs on my neck were standing and this tune is incredible.
I need to do more research to see if DICE or its a folk song, either way its amazing.
This song deserves a really great video tbh.
Update 24th feb:
Teh latest AMD drivers cause problems with Overwatch, they seem to cause FPS spikes and basically ruin the game so once again ive rolled back them, drivers to right where i was 16.11.5
I seen a post on the Blizzard forums which acknowledged the issue;
Micro freezes after the new AMD driver update?
123456789101112131415161718192021 [quote="207517502906"]Hey there everyone!So I have seen this happen with AMD cards using the newer AMD drivers. In my experience reinstalling the standalone drivers that do not include Relive (Recording/Streaming) software (As well as disabling the Windows 10 Xbox Game DVR if you are on Windows 10) can solve this for you. Give the following a shot and see if it helps you all out.Please disable the Windows 10 Game DVR via the XBoxlive app:1. From the start menu open the Xbox App.2. You will be asked to Sign in. Please do so, even if you have never used this app before. You may need to create a microsoft account if you do not already have one.3. On the options menu Click 'Game DVR'4. Switch off 'Record game clips and screenshots using Game DVR''I would like you to perform a clean install of your drivers by completely removing the old drivers as follows:1) Let's remove the old drivers via a program called DDU ([url="http://www.wagnardsoft.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=5"]Display Driver Uninstaller[/url]) and choose the first link.2) Once that's installed, go ahead and run the program. It will say that you're not in safe mode and ask to run in safe mode. Go ahead and tell it yes to restart into safe mode.3) Once in Safe mode the program will pop back up. Simply select your video brand from the drop down and then click Clean and Restart.4) Once it restarts the PC you'll want to get your video drivers from [url="http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64"]here[/url]. (Please note this was for the video card series mentioned earlier, if your card is different you may need drivers specific to your card.)Finally, let's reset the in game user options:1. Click the blue bnet icon on the bnet app.2. Choose settings, then game settings.3. Click the reset in game user options button under the correct game listing.4. Confirm the changes and close the window.[/quote]
So i seemed to have solved the problems with the AMD drivers, i installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and not only does windows feel faster the drivers that had problems before now work.’
However im using 17.1.1 at the moment and have not retried the drivers below that were crashing.
Also when you upgrade your drivers you should always reset your in game video settings usally a “restore to default” option exists. This seems to have sorted all the problems i was having.
AMD have released new drivers 17.1.2
Ive had 4 crashes to desktop since i installed the newest AMD 16.12.2 with Battlefield 1 so ive rolled back to 16.11.5. The problems and crashes also happen with other games. Im running Windows 10 64 bit with an AMD R9 380 4 GB.
The errors i got in Battlefield 1 happened 4 times and i wasn’t using DirectX 12 mode either and it never occurred before with previous drivers.
And since rolling back the drivers I’ve had no problems, guess the lads at AMD need to sort out the driver.
After a quick Google it seems im not the only person with this problem.
AMD have released new drivers 16.12.2 and i still have issues with them so back to the old drivers. A clean install of windows 10 didn’t fix the issue either.
16.12.2 – New Error -wtf
Even the update a few days ago still hasn’t sorted the problems.
Firstly Activison adding supply drops to Modern Warfare Re masted is shitty, scummy and typical.
Anyway when i seen that supply drops had been added to the game i seen the guy they added who gives them out is none other than irish actor and ex-glenroe man Timothy V. Murphy.
Hes been in a tonne of programs since Glenroe of course.
