    A "Legend" Reborn: Logitech Brings Back the MX518 Gaming Mouse

    I know, but they replaced it instantly for nothing every time. A Aouple times they made me physically cut the cable and take a picture. As soon as I mentioned cable issue, support was jumping to ship a replacement. I went through 5 or 6 in total. Ironically, I bought it because they advertised...

    A "Legend" Reborn: Logitech Brings Back the MX518 Gaming Mouse

    The 400 in G400 is actually the number of mice I went though. Fucking cable made out of rice paper.

    Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios

    Well alright. I liked the alpha but them nailing versus mode is what will really make me want to sink time into this game.

    Google replacing Google pay with less functional, entirely different app with same name, old service dead on April 5 (in US)

    Ha, I use my phone wherever possible, but for some reason I can't shake the fear that it's just going to not work one day, so I never really go walletless. Ironically I've had my actual credit card fail several times over the years requiring replacement. Thankfully once I get vaccinated the...

    Doom Eternal

    What the fuck is even happening in Eternal. Like, the Doom 2016 retelling I get, that was cool and fine. Now we're literally riding dragons, watching a Megazord chin check a building sized demon, and fighting a Warhammer 40k space marine with a magic hammer.

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    At that point, just stick money in an index fund that tracks the S&P and leave it there. Never sell it.

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    The entire scenario is ridiculous - there's really no "kind of risky," it is blatantly risky. If you're after saner gains, now is a good fire sale on tech. Or just pick up some ARK and let Big Momma Cathie Wood hold the wheel for a while. Go buy do one of those things and check back in a year...

    Valheim

    They've been trapped for like 2 days IRL so I'm pretty sure they're fine. At one point I got a shaman trapped in there as well but I guess at some point they flattened the poor SOB. Nothing can get in or out unless. You need to jump the fence or break it...

    Valheim

    So far I'm enjoying the deep metagame of trapping trolls outside one of my bases. Got a pen set up for them, like my own personal Jurassic Park. Currently up to 3. also, hilariously, parried one by accident with a knife. 20 foot tall monster swinging a 20 foot tall tree at me. CLANG, parry...

    Battlefield VI

    BF2142 definitely had great balance. I think it's because there was so much creative freedom, they could more easily bend things to be fun and balanced instead of being beholden to IRL logic. Plus killing someone by landing one of those ejection pods on them was the best

    Battlefield VI

    I agree with this. I got an order of magnitude more fun out of BF3/4 than I did 1 or 5. Something's missing and I hope they get it back. Also please just give me 2143 already.

    Battlefield VI

    Meh, I think the game was good for what it was. It blatantly favored Rush, which clearly impacted the overall design. Plus I don't think 64 player Battlefield is particularly good. The gameplay turns more into a clusterfuck than anything and you and your squad's performance begins blending into...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Depends how you handle remote work. Could be as simple as a naïve VPN setup. Run something something compromised off a mapped network share and congrats you're crypto'd.

    Computer Hacked - Options to Restore Windows 10

    I have not seen a completely non-interactive and successful drive-by in many years. The worst I've seen is something downloaded. A relatively recent adware/malware campaign tried to do this, it would masquerade as a media player or audio driver or something. You still had to be the one to click...

    Computer Hacked - Options to Restore Windows 10

    It's compromised, this Windows install cannot be trusted again. I doubt it was exceedingly sophisticated since it sounds like a social engineering attack, but there is no telling what they did. Clean slate is the only option.

    CD Projekt Red says it was hacked but won't pay the ransom

    Generally, they do not release the data if you pay us - nobody would pay otherwise. It's a scummy business, but it's a business nevertheless. No guarantee, of course, but there's a reasonable chance your data is not released if you fork over the cash. This is the more modern direction these...

    UL releases 3DMark Mesh Shaders Feature Test for DirectX 12 Ultimate

    FPS just starts becoming an increasingly poor metric once you get to very high frame rates because it's not linear. The numbers will begin looking increasingly inflated and volatile as it ramps up, it becomes easier and easier to see very large swings. Like the difference between 500 fps and...

    UL releases 3DMark Mesh Shaders Feature Test for DirectX 12 Ultimate

    It's not _that_ unbelievable. They shaved 3 milliseconds off the render time. Imagine they went from 51 fps to 60 fps. Same difference. It's pretty big, but not utterly unreal.

    3.2 billion email passwords leaked

    If you're an Active Directory shop, it's easy to ask AD to validate arbitrary credentials. Couple lines of PowerShell. Just be careful that you don't lock anyone out. Nothing like an internal password spray attack against yourself to start the day.

    Battlefield VI

    My favorite part of BF3/4 was servers that had some obnoxious profanity filter that would kick you because you typed fuck. edit: Ironically as your character was screaming about how he's getting fucked up the ass after coming under fire.

    Battlefield VI

    It sounds great, then you realize the gameplay implications. You could literally ruin certain maps in Bad Company. Just turn them into 200 yard open fields of death because you spent 5 minutes knocking trees over. Which is, I'm sure, why they toned it down in BF3.

    3.2 billion email passwords leaked

    Doesn't sound like you were forced to use that password. Diceware a few words and make something more human. Also PIN is tied to an individual device and is useless without that hardware.

    3.2 billion email passwords leaked

    14 minimum if no MFA, no or very long expiration with no forced composition rules, ideally. People just cheat the password changes and increment a number. It's IMO almost useless outside of auditors complaining. Requiring special characters is just annoying and makes buy in more difficult...

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    Virtual PC in cloud

    I forgot about this thread. AWS AppStream (which I forgot to mention in my last post) is also a good offering - I have managed it before, it's pretty easy to get running. I'd guess your pricing would be in the $175-200~ range a month for 6 users. They can access it directly from a web browser.

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    Forreal, be weary. It's violently in the danger zone - this is nowhere near a sane scenario. The (still) ridiculous short float makes it seem likely there's still squeeze ahead. Presumably cataclysmic. Unfortunately I wasn't enough of an maniac to diamond hand a millionaire-maker level of...

    How many games have you refunded?

    Single digits out of hundreds. I feel like I pretty rarely actually buy something I don't like. When it happens, I'm usually caught off guard. Last one was Doom Eternal I think. Loved the first one, couldn't get into it in 2 hours. Oh well.

    Capcom is working on a Resident Evil 4 remake

    RE3 remake was alright-ish. But, Nemesis was way too scripted. He literally only chases you at like 2 points in the entire game and you can outright down him in one hit with a grenade. The rest is just scripted fights. Plus the entire clocktower is cut. Lame.
