    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I think we can all agree that this game is special. Just for the wrong reasons.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Actually I imagine that many of the game's detractors would purchase the game if it was ever actually released with anywhere near the quality and content promised. Chris Robert's company would have my money in a heartbeat if they actually had something worth buying. It wouldn't make any of the...

    Star Citizen's single player game delayed again

    The defence will just be "No this is good news because they just want to make a great game and not rush it like other developers." Which means the developer can just go ahead and milk them for the remainder of Chris Robert's life.

    Star Citizen's single player game delayed again

    Here's some random, and useless, pieces of trivia to give you a reference point for how long this game has been in development. Development began around the time that Skyrim was originally released (which has had approximately 384 re-releases of various types on various platforms since)...

    Reselling RMA or used GPU

    Brand new RX 580s have been $160 with free games recently and GTX 1660s have been dipping to $200 and below. Both of those are faster cards to varying degrees. So $100 for a used GTX 1060 6GB from a random forum member seems reasonable to me.

    Is it worth going from 6700k to Ryzen 3000 ?

    If you are mostly gaming then a GPU upgrade, no question about it. If you are more concerned about streaming then it becomes both. My recent upgrade from a 2500k to a 3700x was far less noticeable than when I went from a 1060 to a 2080 two months earlier. However I am also at 3440x1440.

    Microcenter Special event for ryzen launch

    Took about 15-20 minutes, but once the line outside cleared I was able to just walk in and had my 3700x within 5 minutes or so. I was actually impressed how quick it was and surprised they had any left. I can see why it would be annoying for you and anyone else after the higher end chips though.

    Microcenter Special event for ryzen launch

    Good bundle deal there as well. $50 off an x570 board/3000 series combo. Overheard one of them saying that they were getting low on the 3700x. The other two, cheaper, MSI MPG tier boards that I'd originally planned on getting were already out of stock as well.

    Microcenter Special event for ryzen launch

    Staff said they've totally been taken by surprise by the demand. Well organized though. Checking out with 3700x and Msi x570 carbon.

    Microcenter Special event for ryzen launch

    Dozens of people lined up outside here in Minneapolis. I seriously thought I'd be walking in alone at 8am on a Sunday. I feel like I'm trying to buy a fucking Iphone. Should have bought some skinny jeans. If it wasn't a 25 minute drive I'd turn around. But instead I'll just sit here in my car...

    Microcenter Special event for ryzen launch

    I'm probably going to swing by in the morning to grab a cpu and motherboard, assuming they don't mark them up by much. If all goes to plan, which it won't, I should be able to put everything together and will be enjoying my new build by this time tomorrow.

    Microsoft E books to stop working.

    E-readers should last weeks, not days. If I was going on a long camping trip tomorrow I'd definitely take my Kindle. Smaller, lighter, more water resistant, I have access to my full elibrary and I can still read at night without having to rely on another electrical device so it's probably more...

    Microsoft E books to stop working.

    If you are that concerned about durability then I have bad news for you. Books also fair poorly in water. The spine can break, or pages rip if dropped. They degrade over time. Many e-readers can also handle water or drops. The reasons you gave are prime reasons to not have a smart phone either...

    Microsoft E books to stop working.

    They are giving you a refund according to the link. I don't see this as a major deal. If they were removing your access to the books and that was it I would totally understand the outrage in the link. But if Microsoft are refunding you I can just go and get the book from somewhere else without...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    So many decisions. Still deciding between the 6 and 8 core models for gaming. Still deciding between x570 or x470. Also debating RAM, 3200 cl14, 3600 cl16, etc. I am so ready to be done with my 2500k. New case, PSU and GPU sat here waiting for a full rebuild.
