    HP ZR2740w - 27" IPS - 2560x1440

    I know this thread is a little old at this point, but I just wanted to chime in. I just bought a HP ZR2740w and got it in last night. I've been playing Titanfall on it. No complaints whatsoever with lag. Same with TF2 and slower games heh. This is a v2 panel so the AG coating is very subtle, it...

    Skyrim Creation Kit and Free High-Res Texture Pack Out

    It looks like they went from 256x256 textures to 512x512 textures, they're still horribly low-res. I think I'll just stick to third party texture packs that actually... you know, have high-res textures.

    Facebook Timeline Feature Really Unpopular

    Article summary: old people hate change, youngsters love to hop on the latest and greatest bandwagon, Timline UI developed by actual UI designer is actually pretty efficient.

    Video Game Sales Drop 21% In December

    NPD might as well report how many pieces of toilet paper were used in their office for all their usefulness in this day and age. Not including ANY PC sales or digitals sales is 100% an absolute failure to correctly gauge the market. I bet that Steam made Valve more money than all 3 consoles'...

    I want this Corsair SSD because I want a super fast OS/game drive, sub 20 second boot times and all that SSD goodness. This will also free up a hard drive bay for my storage RAID.

    Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Announced for release on 11/11/11.

    I expect I'll be able to launch it and play it. I also expect there to be anywhere north of 500+ minor content bugs, probably at least 10-20 larger content bugs, and at worst maybe 1-2 show-stoppers. That's fairly par for the course for an Elder Scrolls game. The very idea that any game with...

    Dead Island - Best Open World Zombie Game Ever?

    The save system in this game is utterly infuriating. Why the hell would a game drop me back 4 hubs to the city warehouse just because I need to quit (I was at the start of the sewers post-supermarket). WTB intelligible save system. I might actually be done w/ the game because of this...

    20+ min Skyrim HD video released.

    I imagine M&B style combat might also be somewhat difficult on a gamepad/console. Hell it's hard enough as it is with a keyboard and mouse (manual blocking is hard o.o) I am a little worried about how easy combat seemed, but I'm also hoping that's just because they basically had god-mode on...

    20+ min Skyrim HD video released.

    I agree with this. M&B has been out for ages too (not to mention Dark Messiah). There's really no excuse for Bethesda to not have fleshed out the melee combat, especially considering how integral it is to the game. Hopefully, playing it on PC, modders will once again take care of this...

    Transporting a 2005FPW to the LAN

    I just had a friend ask me if these cases were still being produced. Her office needs a bunch of them apparently. Definitely the best accessory purchase I've ever made. Despite multiple moves, my monitor works great and the bag has held up magnificently. Despite how much more common large...

    How Crytek Doomed Crysis 2 For the PC

    I can't find it now, but there was a quote from Gabe stating that Valve's cut is about equal to what retail takes (30%), which would leave 70% for the developer and publisher, much larger than the cut left from the retail + distribution + production pie. Einstein once said that the definition...

    Pirates Are In It For The Free Stuff

    • Virus potential: no worse than checking your e-mails • Legal troubles: pirating is NOT theft.... mmmk? • Poor quality: there is no legal alternative to get good high quality content when you want it, where you want it or how you want it The fact of the matter is that there...

    Dell U2410

    Totally off topic, but no I've never covered any wars. I'm actually a staffed web designer and interaction specialist now, and do freelance web design and front-end development on the side. The last time I did photo journalism was in college. I mostly focused on exposing the terrible living...

    Pay-for-Play Call Of Duty Multiplayer Fee Coming

    ^ this But if it is true, that means X360 players, who comprise the largest share of active CoD MP accounts, will now be paying to play at every step of the connection. Once to their ISP, once to MS, once to Activision. Honestly the only way to stop these practices is to stop investing in...

    Dell U2410

    Just bought into the u2410 club w/ the $150 coupon code as well. Didn't see a mailer coupon, would have been nice, but the upgrade was necessary anyway. Plus with the 100% write-off of capital expenditures on the tax forms for 2011 the monitor is essentially free anyway (gotta love being a...

    Haven't run into any bugs yet on SP (on Chap 3). If anyone is finding the 2nd level boss is taking awhile to kill, if you use E+D+F you'll create a flaming earthen wall. Takes out the boss in about 5 or 6 hits. There's already a spell resource here...

    The Majority of Pirated P2P Content Uploaded By 100 People?

    "Their analysis demonstrates that a small group of users of these applications (around one hundred) is responsible for 66 percent of the content that is published and 75 percent of the downloads. In other words: the great success of a massively used application like BitTorrent depends on a few...

    Americans Don't Want the FCC to Regulate the Internet

    I don't think so. The government is regulated against regulation of our free speech by the 1st Amendment. We have legal recourse if the government tries to regulate what we say. And when corporations do it? We have nothing. There is no avenue by which we might gain recourse. They may censor...

    Americans Don't Want the FCC to Regulate the Internet

    See this is part of the problem, people keep saying the FCC wants to regulate the Internet, but that's not what net neutrality is about. It's about regulating the way we access the Internet. The FCC really just wants to tell the telcos they are dumb pipes, without actually saying that. The...

    RIAA Wins Big in LimeWire Lawsuit

    It seems a rather cruel and unusual punishment to be charged $150,000 per song. The worst part is that the artists don't see a dime of this. The RIAA has already stated ( a few times) that all the cash monies they win go straight back into future litigation. And yes, the copyright punishment...

    Steam interface update

    I'm pretty sure you can't go back to the old version because they abandoned the IE render engine in favor of the one used in Firefox. There's already 1 major design/engineering decision which is a huge upgrade. So your "objective" metric is false. I very much doubt a relatively small company...
