    Bethesda Details Fallout 76 Patch Schedule and Faces Backlash Over Bags

    The U.S. Supreme Court Debates Taking Apple App Store Antitrust Case

    All console games are licensed and sold at a fixed price. That is much more anti consumer than what Apple is doing, where the developer sets the price. Unofficial apps are cool, but they don't make much money or have much market share on Android.

    Bing Flags VLC's Official Site as Dangerous

    So they flag VLC's site because some of the software they provided had a security hole. Does that mean Microsoft is flagged in Bing as well? There have been a few exploits with their software I'm pretty sure.

    The FBI Impersonated FedEx to Catch Cybercriminals

    Pretty pathetic that cybercriminals would open up a word document after they avoided a honeypot link. Good job regardless, FBI.

    The U.S. Supreme Court Debates Taking Apple App Store Antitrust Case

    There are no lawyers in existence that can win this one. If they did it would dismantle the business models of Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony. Next they will tell Netflix they aren't allowed to have exclusives. Just think, in the 90s we were worried about Microsoft bundling it's...

    GoFundMe Homeless Vet Scammers Get Visit from Johnny Law

    GoFundMe is a pretty neat concept but the majority of the ones I see are for people whose car or air conditioner broke down. Sad. But in other news these people are going to get what they deserve. Let's see what the woman gets vs the two white males.

    Credit Card Chips Fail to Halt Fraud, Survey Says

    Some places I have to still swipe. Some places I have to choose debit or credit. Some places I have to put in a pin. Some places I have to sign. Some places I just put it in and magic happens. That's what she said.

    Bethesda Using Upgraded Version of Creation Engine for The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield

    You seem to think I was disagreeing with the fact that the engine needs improvements. I am not, I fully agree. Didn't Unreal Engine have a full rewrite at some point? Maybe I'm hallucinating. Unreal Engine was developed as an engine from the ground up with no specific game in mind, but did have...

    Xbox Chief Admits Microsoft Has "A Ton of Work to Do on Windows" for PC Gamers

    Windows store can just go away now. Nobody is making money on it. It's purpose was to have compatibility between Win64 and MS's Arm devices. That need is now gone. They can do something more like Steam, and give discounts for publishing / licensing fees if it's published on both systems.

    Bethesda Using Upgraded Version of Creation Engine for The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield

    Is this news? Did you guys think something different? They've been using this engine since Morrowind. If you think about it, its really impressive that what was built in 2002 has scaled all the way to Fallout 4. It's age is showing though and there are better methods to do a lot of the things...

    Amazon is Cracking Down on Top Reviewers

    Amazon doesn't want to fix this stuff. I tried buying a WiiU so I could play Breath of the Wild and ended up buying from a fake seller. They mailed a fake package that was delivered to an address states away from me. I looked at the seller feedback and lots of people were saying they fell for...

    Motherboard Makers Are Moving Manufacturing Out of China

    I'd rather have Uncle Sam spying on me than a communist dictator who only keeps us alive because of our economy. I'm sure I have an unpopular opinion but that's the way I see it. Guys, I just say Mexico because it will still be cheaper than the United States. It's less money going to China. We...

    "Sex Robot Brothel" Blocked by Houston Government

    I am surprised how many of you are ok with a robot brothel. I just wanted to say, "Wow, that picture is a robot?"
