    Bungie: 'Nobody Plays Shooters With A Mouse And Keyboard'

    I can see controller work well for skyrim. Skyrim wasn't about action and is what I expect out of a good console port. Good Story - good game-play - the combat/action felt soft and sluggish. The importance of comfort with console FPS is interesting (and likely true). So if halo features...

    New ubuntu build -

    thanks for the input - best thing I found : I ran across come benchmarks yesterday that showed much more consistency for NVIDIA proprietary drivers. Wasn't even close. So in spite of my experiences with my last couple nvidia cards I'll be going with that. As for the CPU I'm looking at...

    Comparison- coldfusion and .net

    We're looking to do some web development and are trying to decide which language to use. Coldfusion and .net are being discussed. This will be for a front end that will interact with an MSQL database. We're hearing conflicting rumors that one or the other is on the way out. Or that one...
