    Rocket League Going Free-To-Play This Summer

    Sometimes being cheap pays off. Haha. I've been putting off spending $25 on this for years....Reality is, I've gotten old. I know damn well if I buy a game I'm never sitting down to play it more than an hour. Thanks for news. I'll look forward to being part of the F2P n00b plague.

    Used SAS Drives for Dell Server

    Wanted to do a sanity check with everyone here. Trying to discern if I'm a dumbass for buying used SAS drives for my home NAS. Between the absurd price of new NAS drives and the recent SMR drama, I wound up buying 8pc of HUS726060ALS640 from an ebay seller. These are recycled / refurbished...

    HOT: Samsung 2018 55" "BFGD" 120hz @ 1440p with HDR CHEAP @ 799.99 or, Open Box $679 Best Buy ht

    Man, I picked the wrong time to get in the market for a new TV. Too bad the RU8000 series is a downgrade from the NU8000 Stock levels at stores appear to be wiped out. How about the last remnants on eBay? I am eyeballing this listing, maybe getting the square trade coverage just as insurance...

    Google Buys Mastercard Data to Link Targeted Ads to Online and Physical Sales

    One thought: Their push or Google+ was to make sure their brand stayed dominant in the internet landscape, and to ensure they kept a direct line to user data. They did not want Facebook to get as big as it has gotten. When Google+ failed, the market share envy grew to new heights to the point...

    Iptorrent Invites

    Any members have an invite you could throw my way? I've had an account there before with nearly 10:1 ratio. Then I moved a few years back and it was a few months before i had my network and systems setup to get back to seeding. Lost my account.

    AI Powers Windows 10 April 2018 Update Rollout

    Insinuating there's some level of intelligence at MS these days. Especially when it comes to updates on Win10.

    Upgrade target for an Ivy Bridge system

    I'm pretty out of the loop on video cards anymore. Although my aging 7970 has stood in quite well for the past 4 yeras, I have no interest in returning to AMD anymore. But, at this point, I don't know if I should aim high (1080) or midrange (1070 / 1060). I primarily game @ 2560 x 1440 @ 85Hz...

    So what's the best 16:10 nowadays? 24 inches under 400$ please

    I just got the 2415 at work, and it's pretty nice. I have no complaints. But I'm not gaming on it or doing photo editing. Just CAD & email. At the time I got it, 27" 1440p monitors were still too pricey. Then like a few weeks later, the 27's get a price drop and I could have had one of those...

    Skyrim Paid Mods After Fallout 4

    I guess mod piracy will become a thing....Then modders can claim "lost revenue" I agree. I wouldn't even bother installing graphical enhancements if I had to "buy a license" to them. Texture packs and things may be nice upgrades from the game that shipped 5 years prior. But it doesn't really...

    Skyrim Paid Mods After Fallout 4

    People are spending money in fallout shelter?'s not even a good game. I have it on my phone to take up a few seconds while I'm on the crapper. Spend money on it? My faith in humanity is challenged by this thought.

    Skyrim Paid Mods After Fallout 4

    Sometimes I feel like, growing up as a gamer, the games series we love seem to exist by the grace of a double edged sword. Either way, their fate is never good. Favorite games of mine: Half-Life 1. Small company hit's huge success. Followed up by HL2 many years later. Decent story in HL2 but...

    Windows 10 Installed 75M Times In One Month

    User preference. Doesn't matter What version of window's since vista hasn't included a photo viewer? A featureless but fast browser A 3D graphics API that won't see hit its stride for years. I will admit, I like 8.1 better. But I am not fan of the AppX programs either on Win10 or 8.

    Windows 10 Installed 75M Times In One Month

    Couldn't agree more. Windows 10 is dead to me with the forced update shit. Hopefully they pull the heads out of their asses some time this year. At the very least, allow server 2016 and WSUS to be the end-all-be-all on updates and data mining.

    any IT guys here? Are you upgrading to Win 10?

    Honestly, MS would love to strong arm game devs with that slogan...."don't develop a linux native variant of your AAA game because linux has a 50% priacy rate. Being exclusive to us will get you more revenue." Not that there's much loss. I haven't been excited for a AAA game since Skyrim...And...
