Everything is spying on you, especially social media and Facebook in particular.

A few examples that happened very recently

A colleague of mine went over on his ankle while doing something daft (as drunk people tend to do) and obviously he received a lot of stick for it. Three of the people giving the guy who hurt himself a ribbing, the next day all got adverts for ankle supports on their social media, without actually posting anything about the incident, they did tell others over the phone though.

Another example was the place I've been working for the past few months has some of the most vicious seagulls I've ever encountered. Again many of the guys I work with received articles about Seagull attacks on their social media accounts.

I'm now on annual leave from work and over the past few weeks my wife and I have been discussing where we're taking the kids. Today she received a few articles about where we're going, without her posting anything about where we plan to go. Neither my wife or myself have posted anything about it online.

There's a reason why I leave my phone's mobile data off when I'm not using it and why I use a VPN, adblock and a strong firewall. I'm not paranoid (and even if I was it wouldn't mean they're not out to get me! ;) ) I just don't like being tracked and spied on so as others can make money from me. I stay well clear of Epic for the same reasons.

Not sure why you think you're successfully trolling me when it's you that's coming across as the fool. Don't worry though I'll happily make you look foolish all day.

@GarGx1: I said failed update, not after the update.

Like this one? (just the first search result)

Your style of trolling really only makes you look foolish, you should try a new tack.

@GarGx1: I don't think i can post every link for a pc issue just for today.

You asked for an example of a console failing after a patch, I gave you four out of the many I found from a 30 second search. How many people, out of the billions using a PC, have issues is irrelevant to your initial statement. The main difference though is that the vast majority of PC issues are very easily sorted by the user, which is the complete reverse of the majority of bricked console issues.

It's called "bricking" with consoles for a reason.

@kali-b1rd: My laptop failed to update and deleted windows 10.

My recovery system didn't work, since it was win8 and i got the free win 10 update and now i have now windows on my laptop.

Name a time a failed update killed a console.

I'd need to search through some boxes in the loft to answer that one, there are probably ZX Spectrum games up there

I know this is a long dead thread that has been raised from the grave by a Youtube troll but what the heck happened to this game? I lost track of it.

Odd that the vast majority of graphics threads on this board are created by Sony fans.

It is odd because xbox and PC fanboys always claim to have the best graphics but never have any games to show it off.

Catch 22.

We can fill this thread with ray traced images of Metro and Battlefield 5 if you want.

lol go ahead and show off your unplayable ray-traced multiplat images that make you look even more desperate and dumb.

We all know you hermits claim that playing games at anything less than 60fps is unplayable. Never mind the fact that most of you are not playing every game 4k60 but pretend it's free on PC.

Now, just for combat consoles superior graphics, you're willing to post 12fps 4k raytraced images just to say, "look at these PC graphix!!!!"

1. All you have are multiplats that are virtually identical console counterparts and 2. For it to be playable, especially according to PC fanboy standards, ray-tracing isn't an option on PC at the moment.

Lastly, what are your PC specs?

Oh, you want to go this route, eh?

Okay, here you go.

9900k, 16 gb DDR4 3200, EVGA 2080 TI FTW3 Hybrid. Here's a couple pics.

Have some 60 fps+ Metro Exodus at 1440p Ultrawide. DLSS off. One is at 58. So unplayable; slideshow, right? Framerate in the upper left.

Of course, you probably won't respond to this. You typically run away after screenshots are posted with your tail between your legs.

No need for me to add anything else.

Though I am typing this on my laptop, which is already more powerful than anything the next gen consoles will roll out with. :)
