    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    Yea I fully expect them to do like they did to WC3, and lock down the game so that mods do not work with it, release it buggy and do only a few bug fixes before moving on from it.

    South Korean cinema halls renting theaters to gamers

    I think you underestimate how long this is going to be a problem world wide... Also i think there are already theaters doing this in the US. I believe one was doing Among us

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    I ended up getting the Index and love it. The only thing I miss is wireless freedom. I may look at getting a 2nd VR set that I would be able to drag around anywhere with me (especially since i mounted the Index base stations to the walls of my office), as well as to not have to deal with...

    AI Company Leaks Over 2.5 Million Medical Records

    Boy, some IT guy is screwed. The company does "SaaS-based intelligent process automation management solutions". It looks like the person put all that data somewhere temporarily, before doing a data import (or maybe they were trying to create a demo to sell the insurance company on what they...

    Quake III [Bethseda launcher] (free from 8/17 to 8/20)

    2 different giveaways with different effective periods, so i dont see it being that big an issue. the quake 2 thread can be closed once that ends, and this one becomes valid.

    Star Wars: Squadrons

    Elite Dangerous has a similar power management system, though you do not get to direct shielding to the forward or reverse shields. This needs to have large scale battles or else it is just your generic "COD/Battlefield" clone with ships instead of people.

    HP Reverb G2

    Yea, I am still "in line" for my Index, and debated just getting this instead, but i think the Index is overall still better (but also more expensive).

    convince me about Ubiquiti

    Every time i was debating getting something Ubiquiti, i found something else. I wass originally looking at the ER-L but went with a Mikrotik router instead. I was looking at their switches, but I ended up going with used enterprise level gear off ebay. This even got me some bonuses for around...

    Do you feel gamers have become "soft?"

    Counter-Counter-point?: the game did a poor job preparing the player so that they effectively learned how to use all of the tools properly

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    Waiting for confirmation on RTX3000 series card lengths to buy a case. Currently restraining myself from clicking buy on Fractal Design Define C, because i want to make sure the new cards will fit (and not have to get the special version that is shorter). That would trigger the buying to begin...

    Rocket Arena

    Got excited when i saw Rocket Arena being mentioned in articles. I still think it could be OK, but lots of articles are trying to hype this as the next Fortnite. The game modes look to be fun and more like games of old (i.e. Unreal Tournament), which i prefer. The art style isn't the...

    Western Digital adds “Red Plus” branding for non-SMR hard drives

    Disagree with being fine with this new SKU. They built up a reputation for their Red line being the go-to for NAS. With that came a certain level of expectation on performance. Now they introduced a lower performance product using that same branding, and want to charge an additional premium to...

    Microsoft joins Amazon, IBM in halting police use of facial recognition technology

    They will still develop/improve it, and even use it themselves/sell it to other companies. They just will not sell it to law enforcement. How long before we privatize law enforcement?

    I quit gaming.

    I don't know how you survive on <6 hours of sleep per night. I know my average hours of sleep was likely around the same for the first 3 years of having kids, but looking back it was a pretty rough existence. During that time, it was definitely a choice between sleep or gaming. Once a week or...

    Did you paint your gaming room/office? What color scheme?

    Just moved into my new house so I am also working redoing the basement office. It is currently neon green and purple, because it was the previous owner's daughter's bedroom. I actually just bought St John's Blue (Benjamin Moore) and plan to paint it this week.

    Cyberpunk 2077 delayed to November 19th

    Are there even "journalists" anymore? I thought it was just "influencers" now. I would tend to agree on not wanting their input on the game. CDPR has a vision for the game. Don't change that because journalist(s) have their own opinions (and likely wants something changed just to be able to...

    EA, Motive and Lucasfilm Announce Star Wars: Squadrons

    I saw that it has HOTAS support as well, so i would guess Free Form flying. This was pretty much how it went for me... Apparently Disney/Lucasfilm scolded EA pretty harshly over the mess that was the Battlefront 2 micro-transactions. It worked out well for Jedi: Fallen Order, and hopefully...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Just got an Anne Pro 2, as i wanted a wireless keyboard. My main keyboard is a Logitech K120 because it was free and works just fine. Mice I have a Logitech G502 and a Razer Mamba Wireless. I am disappointed in the Mamba Wireless, primarily because i thought it was supposed to be the closest...

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

    Not going to lie.... I am pretty excited about this. Plus I am about a week in to the Index wait list. I still think Engineering and Mining need to be reworked to be less annoying, and it would be nice to have base building, even though i get Fleet Carriers are supposed to sort of fill that gap.

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

    I agree on Elite Dangerous being great for the flight piece of Star Citizen. I do feel the lack of ability to land on planets and do things on them makes things get old after a while. Between Engineering and mining (in part to get better engineering) it is easy to burn out on Elite. That, the...

    Maneater Tripwire interactive Shark game

    My kids love some "Sharkbite" game on Roblox, which seems to be somewhat similar. Of course it is multiplayer so it is a random drawing each round for determining who the shark is, and everyone else not picked as a shark gets a boat and tries to avoid the shark.

    Jack Dorsey Tells Andrew Yang: 'AI is Coming For Programming Jobs'

    Good, but they should include deep learning to build in inherent scope creep, so that it codes in additional functionality that the product owner didnt realize the tool had to have until after initial coding. That or AI Product Owners who fully understand their business process and can actually...

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced!

    GamePass version does not support Mods (though they promise to support some time this year), so that is kind of a letdown.

    Is VR even worth it?

    OK, so if you had around 1k to spend... which of the systems would you purchase? It looks like Index is the best available in the price range (750-1250)

    Senate passes spying bill without search and browsing history protections

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced!

    I remember having to run a CPU limiter when playing OG Mechwarrior, because I had a 486 (DX) and missions would be over in seconds because it was designed for slower CPUs.

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced!

    Thank you! I had been interested, but not enough to purchase due to the backlog I already have. Thankfully I jumped on the B1G1 deal on the Ultimate Pass so i can now try it out. MW:Mercenaries is still my probably favorite, but that is probably looking through nostalgic glasses.

    Raymond is blowing up the Animal Crossing villager black market

    The key is to make sure the gazorpazorp doesn't interfere with the rotator splint, otherwise the TPS reports ruin the Midi-chlorians.

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    I want a "GamesAnywhere" pass like they have for movies. I would likely pay $20 more for a game, if i got it on all formats (PC, PS4, Xbox One). As is, i just try to decide which platform seems like the best fit.

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Logitech K120 keyboard for my Desktop, along with a G502 mouse. I recently got a Razer Mamba Wireless mouse, because it was supposed to be the wireless equivalent of the Deathadder, but am somewhat disappointed in it. The Deathadder had bigger (and more centralized) thumb buttons, which I liked.

    new motherboard with suport zen 2 and zen 3 later??

    Why buy anything now, other than to potentially throw away some money? I am also waiting on Zen 3 (4000 series CPUs) to release, but there is no confirmation on if it would work on existing motherboards, even if it stays the same socket. Any motherboard you buy now, even if it did somehow work...

    NFL Signs Deal With 2K Games

    I am curious how they define "non-simulation". Also, they may have a deal with the NFL, but does that give them the rights to the players as well? I think that piece is controlled by the NFLPA, so that would mean that the game may have actual teams, but would not have the players. Good news...

    Favorite Linux distro?
