    Google GDC 2019 Gaming Announcement

    Only way back in the day did people use colored Aim bots, DOOM, Quake, CS. They are not really efficient since, they sometimes fire at landscape, dead bodies, when you mouse over them. With today's 1080p+ graphics it makes these aim bots harder to design granted you could turn down all your...

    Google GDC 2019 Gaming Announcement

I never tried project stream but if...

    Blizzard To Double Down on Warcraft and Diablo IPs

    The problem with this statement is it is against the old blizzard mission statement of something such as "Game play first" and "It will be released when it is ready" thus 10 years to develop a game. Not "accelerate development" and "Working on several projects". Were going for quantity over...

    Are you ditching Steam in favor of Epic Store?

    If the game came out on one of the big three clients I would go for Steam or GoG and only Epic if it was the only place to get it, like origin is for EA. Reasons being Steam and GoG are very pretty pro consumer some things are 1) Steam and Gog User reviews - I think this is the biggest, so...

    SEC Charges Tesla CEO Elon Musk with Fraud for Irresponsible Social Media Posts

    I find it hilarious and sad a 9 word tweet is fraud now. The stock market is a gamble in the first place it used to be looking at charts, sales and predictions to figure out what a stock was worth. I remember around 2008 Steve jobs coughing a few times at a keynote and the stock dropping is...

    Lowe's Uses Virtual Reality to Allow Customers to 'Try Before They Buy'

    They have those VR headset condoms. Also we need this we need more apps like this and practical things. VR is always going to be leftovers and forgotten unless it gets more exposure. More exposure means more people and thus more games and innovation for VR.

    Microsoft and Razer Might Be Working on an Xbox Keyboard and Mouse Partnership

    I think this can only be a good thing for PC gamer, developers will be more likely to develop Mouse and keyboard control games.
