OMG IT'S HERE!

They declared it as "replacement parts" valued at $15, so I didn't have to pay tax. <3 China.

I'm about to leave for work, but I shall be posting my first impressions soon.

I'm sorry, I guess my out of the box Debian install just didn't count, did it?
Parsifal's idea of "out of the box" is just very different from that of us mere mortals.

This. I know Windows is a hassle to get working right, but Steam works out of the box on Debian [...]
This is inaccurate. [...]

Very few games require you to actually build a powerful PC
QFT. I play games on a shitty laptop because I keep spending money on things that aren't a better computer. Despite the common view that shitty laptops can't run games, they can. You just need to turn them graphics sliders down a bit (don't worry, it'll still look better than xbone).

Steam's working on that. Although you could just walk into a store and buy an ok-ish pre-assembled PC since 1998.

If PC got all the exclusives the consoles do, I would not buy consoles. As it is, it doesn't. :[
Yes, because people buy consoles.

Contrary to what shows like CSI depict, the white-collar professionals doing office work and the badasses waving guns around and busting the bad guys are actually in two separate lines of work.
But... but... :(

As a former WoW player I take offence to this :(

We're not all fat and unhygienic. Some of us are extremely skinny and unhygienic.

It's okay, people will buy them anyway.

I think the best course of action would be to put it up on the Wiki (as actual Wiki pages instead of links). That way it would be easily-navigable and well-integrated with the rest of the site.

5 minutes of downtime is inexcusable.
IT WAS 3 MINUTES OKAY?!

Users should be allowed to register freely. This may change in the future if people decide to be irresponsible about it.
Welp, apparently spambots already know about us. I disabled user registration for the time being while I look into a solution. In the meantime, anyone interested in editing can request an account via PM. I do not intend to refuse anyone access, this is just to stop bots.

Hopefully I'll be able to look into something similar to the plugin we use for the forum tonight or tomorrow, so this should be a very temporary hindrance.

If this problem can't be fixed, then it looks like the people who fell for it are well and truly...Xboned.

I'm with Rushy on this one. It doesn't matter how hard it is to access the dev console if people are producing instructions that consist of:

1. Access the dev console
2. Press the "DO NOT PUSH THAT BUTTON" button

If people are dumb enough to follow these instructions, they'll follow any instructions to the same effect.

It's also significantly easier to un-brick a PC.
Depends on how badly you've bricked it. But yes, that is something consoles should work on.

Developer mode is cool, but maybe disabling the console-bricking commands wouldn't hurt too much, though.
But that's part of development. If I write my own program that replaces the entire contents of my hard drive with random bits and then run it, I'll "brick" my PC. That doesn't mean programming should be unavailable. It just needs to be practised sensibly.
