    Intel Launches 8 New Desktop And Mobile CPUs

    Considering a nearly 7 year old OC'ed 920 is still a perfectly valid performance CPU, yes.

    How Blizzard Turned A Costly Failure Into Overwatch

    I was a beta tester for SWG. Thought it was pretty great actually. Then it released in the summer and was quickly dominated by 14 year olds who had no responsibilities and could play all day while 20 something me had a job and occasionally wished to engage in the ritualistic act of dating the...

    A New Cartridge-Based Console Is Coming Out Next Year

    There's already a great platform for older games that doesn't have a lot of graphics horsepower. It's called the smartphone. We have a pile of those multigame controllers that plug into the RCA jacks (Atari, Midway, etc). They come out about once a year while the PS4 and Wii get lots of...

    Man Sues Bethesda Over 'Fallout 4' Addiction

    Sounds like a total tool. I've had the game for 3 weeks and have played about 6 hours. But...job, family, holidays, home projects, other hobbies, and writing a novel. Games CAN be addicting, I get it, but c'mon man...

    Top 10 PC Games Of 2015

    Been playing Fallout 4. The rest...haven't looked into much. I think Cities: Skylines is on my Steam wishlist and I'll probably get it when it's $5 :)

    AOL To Cut 100 Jobs

    George Lucas On His Decision To Break Up With Star Wars

    Let's face facts here. Lucas took a garbage genre (sci-fi in the 70s), used revolutionary lighting and special effects (for the time), and put a real A+ soundtrack in. When you boil it all down that's what Star Wars is. To those of us who lived the hype it was AMAZING. To the kids coming up...

    Windows Turns 30 Today

    Was too busy figuring out my C64 and playing Bard's Tale, Adventure Construction Set, and Phantasie to worry about yuppie business machine software like Windows.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens Official Poster

    I'm actually glad. I read a ton of the post Episode VI graphic novels back in the '90s and wasn't particularly impressed with what they came up with. Star Wars is simplistic, but it's about good vs. evil. Mostly sorta-kinda good vs. mostly sorta-kinda bad is more applicable to real life...

    HL3 Clue in Dota 2?

    Uh huh. The FPS adventure genre is still very crowded. We all know it will be high quality but...will it be memorable?

    Doctors In Norway Still Using Floppy Disks

    Lol. Had a project for a doctor's office, 2008 timeframe. They were using Atari 800s and 5-1/4s and wanted to move to WinXP PCs. It was migration. I had to dig up an IBM AT to make it easier. Fun to fire up that old machine after 10+ years (at the time). I know...

    How "Old School" Graphics Worked

    Lol I had that Spy vs. Spy game on C64. Back then C64 gamers (well, before the Amiga) looked at everyone else much the same way as a modern PC gamer looks at console gamers. The Nintendo was cute but there were no games of the caliber of, say, Bard's Tale, Wasteland, etc on there. Even the...

    Hackers Finally Post Stolen Ashley Madison Data

    The webmail address I've used since 1997 isn't on there. So if it's a webcrawled list it sucks, because I'm on most of them. Not surprised about the 95% mark. I don't profess to know a ton about women, but I think the ones that want to cheat just call up an old boyfriend or hit up a cute...

    Amazon Employees Cry At Their Desk And Practically Combust

    Frankie...I speak of the white collar types at Amazon HQ which, no coincidence, were the focus of the article. Their warehouse jobs seem pretty on par with others out there. I've done warehouse work. It's either too hot or too cold every day, and you have to bust your butt (unless your dad...

    Amazon Employees Cry At Their Desk And Practically Combust

    They pay well and expect a lot. Feel free to work elsewhere if you don't like it. I used to sell to Amazon. I'd get emailed at 2am and responses were expected to be pretty much immediate. I put up with it b/c they were one of my biggest customers. If they were a small fry I would have fired...

    The Best Games On PC

    Well it got me to add about 3 games to my Steam wishlist. When they hit the bargain bin I'll be all over them. Skyrim never grabbed me like Morrowind did. You can't step into the same river twice, and in between the two I got married and had a couple kiddos so sitting down to 6 hours of...
