    500 Million ASUS Motherboards. The Celebration Starts at [H]. - Lucky Draw

    I've had scattered Asus motherboards from the LGA775 days (I think it was a P5Q) onward to now, and they've all been pleasantly solid and reliable. I'm not a PC extremist (particularly now that I'm %#*&%*! broke), so that's really all I can ask. :)

    ‘Lizard Squad’ Member Reveals His Face in a TV Interview

    If he's indeed part of Lizard Squad, he's a fucking idiot for going on-camera (okay, webcam) and, if not immediately, basically outing himself. If he's not, he's possibly a bigger fucking idiot for trying to leech onto LS's act and get himself flagged as a criminal in the name of getting his...

    Notch Buys $70M Beverly Hills Mansion

    I can't help thinking he should have bought the mansion from Brian de Palma's Scarface (last I knew it was still on the market, and at about half what this place cost), but hey. The man could afford to blow three percent of his windfall on the most expensive house sold in one of the most...

    Installed my old X-Fi Titanium HD to replace my ZXR...

    If that's what they call the Console Launcher, Creative does have a version of it for W7 up on the Titanium HD support page...albeit from 2011.

    343 Industries Explains 20GB Day One Patch

    Maybe it's just me, but I'm interpreting this as 343 screwing up somewhere and Microsoft going "Screw you, we're making that launch date." Printing that second disc (and thus modifying the cases for two discs, let's not forget that) was an expense MS didn't want to pony up for in the face of...

    WoW; 5th expansion Warlords of Draenor

    I haven't done anything serious post-squish apart from the UBRS dungeon (which, as a pally healer, is just disconcerting enough that I now need to read up and refresh my knowledge--such as it is). So far, the only thing I've really noticed is that some of the Timeless Isle mobs are a bit easier...

    New product from Creative--Soundblaster X7

    I don't want to be that guy, but: IMO, the fact that Creative insists on using the words "kickass" and "pwn" in the ad copy for this thing doesn't help its case. And that said, it also doesn't help that I'm interpreting this monstrosity as less "external DAC" and more "abstractly designed...

    The Crew beta signup is live!

    I used the last key you posted, eloj. Thank you kindly.

    Cities:Skylines Reveal trailer

    Colossal Order, AIUI, is the developer behind the Cities in Motion series (which may or may not bode well for this project, I'm still not sure). Cities XL was developed by a group called Monte Cristo.

    New Sound Card: Asus or Creative Labs??

    Yeah, ^ that up there. If you have a full-blown A/V receiver you're using for audio output, a sound card would be actual overkill; go for HDMI or SPDIF output to it, save some money, and rock on.

    Good mousepad

    I have to admit my Ratpadz XT has held up astonishingly well since I got it in 1999 (not a super hardcore gamer, to be fair), though it's finally domed up and its feet are falling off. I'm heavily inclined to simply get another one to replace it, though I'm a little tempted to snag something...

    TotalBiscuit Takes On The Watch Dogs PC Controversy

    Kind of a backhanded bonus, though... TB is/was basically right, though: it's either malice or stupidity that led to this, and until somebody in the loop actually pops up and dishes on it we're in the dark.

    Battlefield: Hardline

    Going off a couple of hours with the beta: I do like it, though I'm not going to dismiss its sometimes feeling like a BF4 mod (and by extension the sentiment that EA could well charge usual retail price for a mod). I'm impressed it runs as well as it does at 1080p on my contingency PC, too (at...

    Battlefield Hardline Beta for all!

    They must have done a big old batch of folks...I got my email earlier too. Let's see how badly this runs on this thing!

    ASUS Essence STX II

    There are a few STX II reviews floating around in the wild, it seems, but not many...KitGuru, someplace called Review Studio, and some site in Romania. Oddly, it's even harder to actually find an e-tailer that appears to stock the thing; the original STX is all over the place, but nobody seems...
