[B]I FUCKING HATE GAMES FOR WINDOWS FUCKING LIVE[/B] I'm trying to play Grand Theft Auto IV, but I forgot to save my saves. So I try to log in to GFWL, hoping they would be on the cloud. I forgot the password, so I click the button in game to launch Firefox so I can change my password. So I do that, and I let LastPass generate the password for me. And it logs into GFWL in browser just fine. So I try it in game. It refuses to work. I try everything, port forwarding, adding it in firewall, nothing works. Then suddenly it says, instead of "incorrect password or account," it says "Account locked." So I know it's responding to the internet. So I log into it on my browser again, and it asks me to enter the captch. On a whim, I tried something stupid, something crazy. I reset my password again, but this time I omitted special symbols, so it just had capital letters, lowercase letters, and numbers. [I]The Games for Windows Live in-game panel [B]doesn't fucking accept special characters when the browser version fucking does.[/B][/I] And my saves weren't in the fucking cloud.

[QUOTE=GoDong-DK;35736704]It's okayish, not great, but it isn't really lacking either. If you plan on gaming on your phone and what not, this is obviously not the platform for you, but I haven't really encountered something yet, that I simply couldn't find. If you're on a tight budget, the lumia 710 is a great phone for its price. If you're in the US (aren't you Canadian or something?), you can get the 900 for pretty cheap.[/QUOTE] Thanks for the information, I don't really game on my phone, I use it for browsing, making calls and the like. Oh and I'm in Florida by the way.
Aw fuck no. You know that laptop I've been waiting for? The Asus G55? Just dropped off the face of the earth. Can't find a single *working* order or pre-order page. Same for the same-internals-but-larger-size G75. Which sucks, because now that I could actually buy it, it's gone. Really hope it's just something small like all the pre-orders at that site being allocated, and not a case of the laptop being delayed or anything.

[QUOTE=MC3craze;35738364]He copies game saves to dropbox.[/QUOTE] He referred to GFWL's cloud, not his dropbox. Where is the bad reading rating when you need it?

[QUOTE=SGTNAPALM;35733308]I found a neat program. [url=http://www.gamesave-manager.com/]GameSave Manager[/url] It can scan your HDD for game save locations and then back them all up, and even automatically create and manage SymLinks so you can have all of your saves on Dropbox, for example. So now all of my save games are automatically on the cloud. I was already doing this manually but this program makes it a ton easier.[/QUOTE] All installers and games should use more path variables Instead of defaulting to %programfiles% it should go to a path called %games% if it's a game installer Savegames should go to %savegames% and so on That way you don't have 10,000 files spread across multiple locations at once

Someone should actually make a petition for that.
HDtune isn't picking up any bad blocks on my HDD, I'm hoping that just means it's noisy, which I can live with. Oh jesus I was scanning my SSD, I'm an idiot. Clicks rather a lot while scanning and scan gets stuck occasionally until it clicks.
