    How do people compare game benchmarks perfectly?

    For games that don’t have an in-game benchmark, how do people navigate what seems like the exact same route in a game for 2 videos? I mean yeah, I think maybe they are doing the route manually, but surely there is an automated way?

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    I stopped collecting BRs and stopped using my entertainment PC a while back because of how convenient all the streaming and saving of movies on the DVR was. I’ve gotten pretty annoyed with my new TV service deciding to only keep recordings for 90 days. Lately I’ve also gotten annoyed at...

    Is Firefox Going Down the Drain?

    More and more I've noticed some sites not loading properly or parts of websites never loading at all. One example is a little gif in a site blowing itself up on the entire page. The page looks fine if I paste the link in Chrome. I come across sites doing weird things maybe once every few days...

    Why do people hate bullet sponges?

    I'd like to wrap my head around the why since so many people mention it, and people that really hate it have no problem at all strongly voicing their opinion about it. I absolutely love bullet sponges. None of my old school friends hate bullet sponges. The longer a battle is the better. I...

    Is programming for resolutions that challenging?

    Past couple of months I’ve purchased 2 games: Death Stranding and Control Both didn’t have my windows resolution as an option. I had to edit Death’s Stranding’s exe to support my aspect ratio. I still can’t choose my resolution in the game, but at least it uses my windows resolution...

    Do you feel gamers have become "soft?"

    I come from an era when gamers would keep coming back for more. If the game was too hard, we kept picking at it till we mastered it. If we played against better players, we kept playing against them until we were just as good or better. We never cried about difficultly and never called a game...

    Who else annoyed with Apple obsoleting your device?

    I have an iPhone 6 plus with 64gb I got new in 2014. Works perfectly fine, only has a few minor dings on the body and no scratches on the glass. And now Apple no longer wants to update it forcing me to count the days until one of my apps do not work on it. I will probably be getting an 11...

    Has anyone found a way to up the monster's HP? I really dont enjoy the die once and full restart bit. I prefer monsters that are ammo sponges that force me to scrounge around for ammo if need be.

    The 1080 seems to have only a DVI-D connector, but I need the DVI-I of the 900 series. So I was wondering if Nvidia keeps all the good previous gen cards for x time or until stock is out.
