    Crytek Demos Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections Running on an AMD Vega 56

    Wonderful video results. I thought the reflections in Crysis 3 were excellent already, but this goes far beyond. As a card-carrying Crysis trilogy fanboy I'd love to see Crytek use this to breathe new life into that series.

    Researchers Find a 19 Year Old Bug In WinRAR

    Just delete UNACEV2.DLL - that completely eliminates the risk*. Then patch or update WinRAR if you want. *See https://research.checkpoint.com/extracting-code-execution-from-winrar/

    Gamers Love Call of Duty 15's New Loot Boxes

    So a lack of gratuitous rudeness = beating around the bush? Nice logic trick there - for the simple-minded. Having found a site / forum where the discussion is usually knowledgeable and not sunk in flame wars, I'll make some effort to keep it that way. Just block me if it bothers you.

    Researchers Find a 19 Year Old Bug In WinRAR

    Kudos to [H] for being the only site on the internet that didn't put this up with a "500 million users in deadly peril" clickbait title.

    That's a nasty reply to a very reasonable post.

    Hardware Unboxed Calls NVIDIA DLSS "The Biggest RTX Fail of Them All"

    Why did you work in a slam against AMD? Just curious, as it's so totally off-topic, and glaringly inconsistent with your claims of being both unbiased and anti-bias.

    No Link between Violent Video Games and Increased Aggression in Teens, Study Finds

    Maybe not responsible for violence and aggression in teens, but look at the effect on forums.

    AdoredTV Reviews the Radeon VII

    A very reasonable criticism, considering you haven't watched it. At least you aren't biased.

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    All of the groups in BF V were really in the war, and paid the price of being at the tip of the spear. Their stories are valid topics for the game; arguably the more so because as numerical minorities they are generally unknown. Except to their families and nations, of course. Your...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    This is one of the dumbest comments I've seen. First, if you wanted a game about Auschwitz or Babi Yar, you must have misunderstood the ads. I can't remember any game that has ever focused on the horrors - but you pick on BF V as being remiss in this? Second, what "politics" were injected...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    Here I agree with you 1000%. Game devs and publishers - not to mention gamers - have no idea how much fun and replay value they're losing with a checkpoint-only system. Crysis was a model in this regard - you could save at any time and thus revisit every aspect of every scenario, playing them...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    Yes - especially if it's left out of a quote. The game dev responded forthrightly and isn't responsible for his remarks being misrepresented down the line, especially by journos who can read English. The people who misrepresent them are responsible. And what Sony did or didn't ever say -...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    Well, here in BF V they did, and look at the complaints.

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    That's out of context, of course. The game dev laid out the reasons for their character choices, said they weren't going to back down or apologize for those, and if folks couldn't deal with that they could just not buy. Seems pretty fair and straightforward to me. In fact it's the kind of...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    Well, that's pretty solid evidence that it was all made up: nothing you happened to see elsewhere had the story. And that's enough for you to wander in and call him a liar. Amazing - and sad.
