    FTL is getting a free Terraria style update

    Played the advanced version on easy yesterday. I got lucky on all the random decisions and managed to beat the final boss with 1 hp remaining. Hard game is hard haha.

    Corsair Vengeance M65 Gaming Mouse $40

    I own this mouse and use it for CS:GO. I used to play cs 1.6 at the pro level so I would definitely notice input lag. I personally have not experienced any. My monitor, on the other hand is a different story. My only gripe with this mouse is that my thumb can't reach the sniper button.

    Most Players Don’t Finish Games

    I didn't finish Bioshock: Infinite because of the stupid auto-save system. I was sick of trying to get from check point to check point and losing progress if I didn't.

    Random Ability Draft is the best thing ever. It is the perfect break from the tryhard ranked matches.

    Citizen Men's Nighthawk Stainless Steel Eco-Drive Watch $199

    I got a similar Citizen watch as a wedding gift. I love it and I wear it everyday. It takes a beating. This is a great price for this watch.

    Is Windows RT/8 worth it for college/university?

    From what I understand, the desktop browsers on these devices lack hardware acceleration. You need to run it in the metro view to get hardware acceleration and I stream HD video just fine like that.

    Is Windows RT/8 worth it for college/university?

    I am in graduate school and I use a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 daily for school and work. I no longer have a laptop. It works fine, but it might be slightly slow for some people. If you need speed you should wait for Bay Trail equivalents which should be significantly faster.

    Dota 2 Is Now Open To All

    I am certain the average age of LOL players is lower than the average age of DOTA 2 players.

    Blizzard's brand new game 'Heroes of the Storm'

    This is absolutely true and pro DOTA players won't even skill a point until they get in lane to see what type of opposition they are facing.

    BlizzCon 2013 Coverage

    I bought every Blizzard game to date but I didn't buy Heart of the Swarm expansion pack for Starcraft 2 because of my bad experience with Diablo 3. It is pretty easy to tell when a company is headed in the wrong direction. I loved COD 4, but have not bought any of the CODs after that. I bought...

    BlizzCon 2013 Coverage

    No matter how awesome Heroes of the Swarm is, it will fail because Diablo 3 ruined the entire Blizzard brand for a lot of people including myself.

    Blizzard's brand new game 'Heroes of the Storm'

    Too little too late. Some guy already made a hugely popular MOBA with Blizzard characters but they were too busy ruining the Diablo franchise to notice.

    Fx-9590 receives massive price cut

    The prices are getting more reasonable. If these chips run the next generation games well that would be a strong selling point for AMD because right now there aren't enough games that fully utilize all 8 cores.

    Dell Venue 8 Pro

    I was looking at the Dell Venue 11 Pro as well until I found out it didn't have a wacom stylus. If you can wait, the next Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet should be packing a Bay Trail: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2059520/bay-trail-chips-to-speed-up-lenovos-next-thinkpad-tablet.html I have a...

    Very excited about Surface Pro 2

    Anyone know how a Synaptics digitizer compares to a Wacom?

    Very excited about Surface Pro 2

    The Dell was exactly what I was looking for until I found out that it didn't use a Wacom digitizer, and that it is a Dell. I think I am going to hold out for a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 3 if there is such a thing, or a Sony Vaio Duo 13 price drop.

    Very excited about Surface Pro 2

    If they made a Surface Pro with a baytrail and included OneNote I would gladly pay $599 for that. If they made such a thing and advertised it to college students they would make a killing.

    Microsoft's New Surface Tablets Are Close To Selling Out

    I own an RT and have a Surface 2 Pro on pre-order. Honestly if they included a digitizer on the RT and MS threw some resources at developing some apps on the RT platform it would be a killer device. Why bundle OneNote and not include digitizer support? It blows my mind how dumb the people in...

    FX8350 or I7 4770k ?

    Assuming you could spend that $200 you save on a $200 better video card or hard drive or other component, I say sure why not? The FX 8 cores were basically built with what you are planning on doing in mind.

    Bioshock Infinite Steam code - $15.99 @ Newegg

    I ordered it this morning and still have not received my key yet. No big deal for me as I just started playing Bioshock 2, but if you want it right away, I might suggest other sources. I am kind of peeved still though being treated like this.

    Dota 2 Official Thread

    Honestly it is a lot easier to get started these days than it was in the past. You can play limited hero selection mode against people or against bots and probably be matched with people at the beginner level. In the past, you just got thrown into the fire and face stomped.

    The International 3 - DOTA2

    Excited for tomorrow. I think DK moves on to face Alliance while iG and Liquid move on in the LB, unless they end up facing each other.

    Did you like Fallout 3 better or NV?

    I played and beat both and found New Vegas was much more entertaining for me. It also seemed like my choices affected the game experience more and I enjoyed spending more time outdoors away from subway tunnels. The missions also felt more diverse.

    AMD cpu for midrange gaming PC

    If you have an 1100T at 4.0 GHz, it is not worth switching to the FX 6300.

    Monoprice IPS

    I bought the 27" slim panel with DVI-D last week and have been using it for almost a week now. I was lucky enough to not have any dead/stuck pixels. Backlight bleeding is very strong especially on a black background, but for $350 after 10% promo code, I cannot complain. I would love to have a...

    Will shooters EVER be supplanted as the favored game type?

    What you are describing as a game of skill is exactly what DOTA is. A skilled player WILL dominate you in your lane. A skilled team WILL totally crush yours within 10 minutes. There are literally thousands of players that want to get to the top, but it is always the same teams that win all the...

    Will shooters EVER be supplanted as the favored game type?

    MOBAs have a high skill ceiling. As high as just about any genre. There is literally over $1,000,000 up for grabs every 6 months and that is for just Dota 2, a game still in Beta. Many players have tried to make the switch to get this "easy" money from other MOBAs and other genres, including RTS...

    help me choose a smart phone

    So I went back today to pick one up for myself. I have been on a dumb phone up until now, but after seeing my wife's phone, I was blown away at what I could be getting for roughly $170. So I went into Target and grabbed one with the $50 prepaid card. Total came out to $215 with the 5% Red Card...

    help me choose a smart phone

    My wife recently had her phone stolen so we had to buy her a new one but were on a tight budget. We went with the LG Optimus L9 for $200, and I must say that it is a very competent phone. You can get one from Target with a $50 prepaid T-Mobile card for $210 out the door with their promotion...

    Path of Exile

    I don't have a problem with criticism, but what you critique this game for is illogical. I will leave it at that. Enjoy the game.
