    Obsidian Employee is Remaking Star Wars Dark Forces

    It is too bad that so many talented artists make amazing free content based on works not in the public domain instead of making brand new free content. It doesn't have to be Star Wars. If it still looks good, so what if it's called Fantastical Astronomical Battalion, or something.

    Valve Addresses Review Bombing on Steam by Removing Them from Review Scores

    I fail to see when "review bombing" is bad. It's not like people are going around randomly hating good games. If people decide they do not like something with regards to a game, or adjunctly related to the game, then they will post a negative review. I have found it only takes a brief read of a...

    Footage Shows a Click Farm in Action

    This seems really power hungry. Wouldn't a server with VMs use less power? I don't think the screen needs to be on. It also seems more expensive to buy all of these phones instead of a dedicated server.

    Microsoft Reveals Project xCloud: a Vision for Game-Streaming

    Anyone know where to get a good quality phone holder bracket like in the video, but for a dual shock 4 controller? I had one but it broke easily.

    Anthem Is a Buggy Mess

    Is this a new low in game quality, with multiple game consoles crashing? I'm sure without even researching that other games have probably crashed consoles before, but this seems like a bigger step down. I remember when consoles were just starting to get updates through the internet, and people...

    Activision Blizzard Layoffs May Cause Key Talent to Leave

    My theory: The games industry has had a surplus of employees to hire for a while. Those who grew up fondly enjoying their video games had aspirations to be a part of that industry. With so many people to choose from, there is less importance on things like fair compensation, not overworking the...

    Boneworks Has the Physics Underpinnings to Be a Next Generation VR Masterpiece

    I read some stuff just last week because I was wondering why most VR games only show you hands, and it was reasoned that this is because current VR systems do not know where your shoulders are. How have they gotten around this problem?

    USB-IF Changes Branding Again With USB 3.2

    I see with the 20Gbps data rate, they are using a dual-lane operation. Sounds like parallel to me. Why not name it UPB?

    GOG Ends Its Fair Price Package Program

    Why is the price of a game different in different countries? I am assuming with this question that we're normalizing on currency exchange rates and perhaps ignoring daily fluctuations. Is it the developer who is determining the price in each country?

    Linux Gaming Is on a Life-Support System Called Steam

    A derogatory statement on the internet was said about a technology I enjoy. Must resist the urge to rage. Many folks here enjoy building their own computers. Running a Linux desktop can be the software equivalent. You learn about how the OS components come together. You pick your preferred...

    Google Backtracks on Chrome Modifications That Would Have Crippled Ad Blockers

    I am rather surprised at how much market share Chrome has. I thought more people knew about Firefox. But, looking at the trends, both IE and Firefox fall from their peak as Google Chrome took over. I think part of it includes the rise of mobile web browsing, where Chrome is the default on...

    Researchers Build an AI that Can Write

    Obsidian Comments On Fallout 76's Reception

    Give people what they want, or tell them, "if you don't like it, don't buy it." I wonder which one is sound business advice.

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    I wonder who at Vox did this. It seems they do not know either of the Streisand effect nor of the fact that it is fair use. I can't believe that the person or people involved actually use the internet like we do. I browse several web sites as well as YouTube for my tech news and reviews. It...

    Blizzard To Double Down on Warcraft and Diablo IPs

    Asia Is Ramping Up OLED Production

    My current monitor is a 30" 2560x1600 from back when that was the largest size and resolution available (save for that one-off IBM/ViewSonic high-res beast). So, it's been over ten years, and maybe over 15 years. I wonder if the OLED technology has progressed enough to last that long. It would...

    Unity Partners With Google for Game Playing AI Challenge

    There's Allegedly a "Quiet Hostility" Between Apple and Nvidia
