    Can't really get into Bioshock 1, anyone care to explain?

    Hehe this is cool, I am playing the game at the moment too. Can't say I've been hooked during the first couple hours but I am now immersed into this sick world and the story around it. And I actually had fun trying to get past some places without doing it the usual FPS style (killing...

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

    Sounds a lot like me too :O I am currently building a hell of a backlog since I've had my first kid. The second one isn't helping either :P I have yet to play to a lot of past great games, I just can't imagine how to find the time to play to new games. Star Citizen certainly is at the top of...

    Ubi: Assassin's Creed now an annual IP

    I only completed AC1, at the beginning of AC2 right now. I find the games fun so far, have heard of Revelations and Brotherhood as fair games. I am, however, an opponent of "yearly" releases, forcing developers to actually come up with a game every year. I understand Ubisoft has multiple...

    HD capture card with set-top box

    Hello everyone, I would like to get a confirmation from someone before actually going out and buy the HD PVR 2 from Hauppauge. I am in Canada so cablecard is out. To record, on my PC, a TV show that has been recorded on my cable company PVR, I have to connect the Component Out from my...

    Going to Android from a me out?

    Well, I can't see really why you seem to find Android slow as it is not so slow, in my personal experience. I have a Galaxy Nexus (which is arguably less powerful than both the tablets you bought) and Android is almost as smooth as butter. As for the speakers, I am not sure I would consider...

    Is kickstarter good for gaming?

    Kickstarter looks definitely good, but real efficiency to fund Indie projects or otherwise unfunded projects (through conventional means, e.g. publishers or loans) can only be assessed in the future. So far, a lot of promising projects (not just video games, but technology, music and others)...

    Firefox Metro Preview for Windows 8

    IMHO, Windows 8 is just a logical evolution of Windows 7. The main reason businesses aren't really picking up on tablets and touchscreens (they don't "need" it, right, but some could use it for added value and services) is because no OS is really fit for it (Android and iOS). Windows 8 can...

    i7 920 enough for Mist of Pandaria?

    Well, unless I'm mistaken, WoW is one game where CPU makes "kind of" a difference. But you are right, Mists of Pandaria is, even with updated graphics, still mostly the same WoW core so a i7-920 (which I am running too) is plenty enough.

    Thinking of buying Diablo 3, or should I not? Need help!

    This. I've played WoW for 5 years and, despite apocalyptic class balance changes and constant patches, the WoW fanbase has started to go down in numbers "only" after Cataclysm, which is the 3rd expansion after Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King. And it actually took a pretty bad...

    Diablo III is getting killed on Metacritic

    I understand you would have liked to play during your flight. But then again: 1) There are other offline games available for play (unless your backlog is empty, which I doubt ;) 2) Sorry for that, but I don't think you are a part of the majority. I believe the always-online feature, as...

    Cheapest (decent) Case with top mounted 120.2 rad mount?

    Have you checked the Antec P280? Not sure if it is the right case for any rad, but sure has two top fan mounting spots and lots of interior space. As for the cost, I bought mine recently for 110$ CDN (roughly the same 110$ in US).

    Diablo III is getting killed on Metacritic

    This. +1 I know people will kick D3's ass over some basic graphics, voice acting and so on, but it's Diablo. Diablo II wasn't a 180 degrees turn from Diablo I. Also, I believe the game industry (Blizzard in this case) actually chose to do things like this because it works. Countless Call...

    Putting SDD on a ICH10R vs Marvell 9128 - Which is best??

    Well, RAID0 isn't technically four times the failure rate since you write 2x less on each SSD. You are, however exposed to the RAID array failure (I'm pretty sure you know about it :). I had the same dilemma a couple of months ago and read about Marvell controller's problems and general...
