    Activision's new anti-cheat system for COD includes kernel level driver. driver already leaked.

    Yea but everything you just said is just pissing in the wind. Old man shakes cane at clouds. Private servers and game moderation allow people to enjoy games past their intended period of profitability. Proper game moderation isn't coming back. These are corporations chasing profits...

    Activision's new anti-cheat system for COD includes kernel level driver. driver already leaked.

    Sadly, if a game is a PC multiplayer title, it needs this level of anti cheat. These games are otherwise enjoyable experiences. Warzone being free to play and having 900 million players needed this on launch. The only thing that amazes me is how long it's taking them compared to the...

    Activision Blizzard agrees to pay $18 million to settle EEOC probe

    I'm not saying they should, just that a lot of times we write about how we wish the world was. Not how it is. I wish all humans had the opportunity of work life balance, but that is seldom more than a motto in a pamphlet, seen alongside fast paced and high energy. I was just trying to...

    Activision Blizzard agrees to pay $18 million to settle EEOC probe

    I want to start by saying everything about what was going on is/was disgusting. This was clearly well beyond flirting. What was going on was abhorrent. An employee committed suicide on a company trip for fucks sake. If that doesn't give the HR department a gut check, they should all be...

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    I really don't think it's logical leap, Apple adheres to the local laws of the countries in which they operate. If China compels Apple instead of checking against CSAM (child sexual abuse material), check against this database of dissent image hashes. I think they will. Likewise If the US...

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    Ehh I don't know, the number of state actors that use that Pegasus spyware to monitor anybody they deem dissidents is pretty damming of our motives. Just because you would never use it that way, doesn't mean there aren't plenty of nations actively invading the privacy of their citizens. With...

    Netflix plans video game expansion

    I didn't think game streaming was actually taking off? At least with Google Stadia shuttering. They seem late to a party everyone else is already trying to leave

    Google replacing Google pay with less functional, entirely different app with same name, old service dead on April 5 (in US)

    This it’s not about trusting your wallet or phone. It’s about not being able to trust the card reader. https://krebsonsecurity.com/2020/07/heres-why-credit-card-fraud-is-still-a-thing/

    EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3U Power Balancing response from ECGA_JacobF

    I'm lost, I thought the complaints were, we're supposed to be able to pull 500 Watts with FTW3 Ultra's. And even with the beta OC bios they weren't? thus reducing the OC capability. just regular OC BIOS, not the beta OC one posted in that evga thread.

    Dead EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming?

    lol thanks for this. I've been gaming on a 3090 FTW3 Ultra since November that has "red lips". Never knew such a distinction existed. And when looking this up I saw the evga forums posts where someone put googly eyes over those lips. I flashed the evga beta bios for a little while that...

    Sony removes Cyberpunk from the PS playstore

    Came here to say, I’ve been playing this on PC maxed with a 3090 at 1440p. While the performance is lackluster at times, it’s beauty makes up for it. It’s probably the most stable AAA game I’ve played recently. Hell AC:Valhalla crashed a lot throughout my 150 hours, however it more...

    Solarwinds - Supply Chain Hack

    I mean they said less ~18k customers downloaded the compromised version. They’ve only listed the federal agencies that have self reported as downloading the compromised version. So still plenty of enterprises pwned.

    Denuvo DRM Pricing Structure Specific to Crysis Remastered Leaked, over $100k for a Year

    I mean this is hard forums, and we're several generations into both camps AMD and Intel offering a significant number of cores. It sucks that Denuvo has a performance impact, whether that be load times, fps whatever, but isn't that the point of progress. We all have the systems to run all...

    Crysis Next Teased, a Free-to-Play Battle Royale FPS

    But that's probably exactly what they did. Take one look at the quarterly results of Activision Blizzard. I'm a battlefield fanboy, and really hope DICE doesn't fuck up again, but battle royale is here to stay. I'd still be curious what the breakdown between those metrics are between the...

    Asus ROG Strix 3090 = 400W GPU

    Yea I think those 1kw PSU are overkill. I only pull ~477 Watts's as read by a Belkin energy reader during a Furmark benchmark at 1440p, with a 9900k 5 GHz all core, and 2080 Ti at 130 power target. So YMMV, but I don't think I'm anywhere near needing a 1kw PSU anytime soon, even if I pick up...
