    That's extremely generous of you ChoGGi! Thanks for sharing with the community :) Either Spelunky or Knights of Pen and Paper 2 would scratch my roguelite itch if you still have them. Edit: Thanks a ton ChoGGi!

    Yeah, I'm surprised more aren't participating. Still some good games left.

    Very generous both of you! Jelly, I would be interested in Into the Breach if no one has already claimed it via PM. Thank you very much either way!

    Dark Souls 3 (PC) + Ashes of Ariandel DLC for $12

    Just a reminder, the $10.80 price is only if you have never ordered a Humble Monthly before -AND- you have a coupon in your account for 10% off your first Humble Monthly order. Otherwise it is $12 (still a great price for Dark Souls 3 + DLC alone and you still get other games). If you don't have...

    M- Audio AV-40 for 119.99

    I saw a pair of these at a local Best Buy (Cleveland, Ohio) for $70 and did a double-take. If I didn't already own a pair, I would have picked them up. I went back a few days later (both times I was with someone else who needed to stop in), and they were $100.

    r9 290 for $399

    Seriously. I loved my Sapphire 7950, particularly for $169 with a AMD Gold Reward Coupon to use/sell. But I couldn't justify holding onto it when it'd bring in over $400 on eBay. I can run on-chip graphics for a few months while I wait for pricing to work itself out.

    Skyrim LE: $20.40, Skyrim Base: $7.50 on UPlay

    I disliked Oblivion but have enjoyed Skyrim so far (though admittedly I suffer from 100% completion syndrome and have trouble advancing through the main campaign with so much else to do).

    7990 $499.99 @ Egg

    $20 a pop for those games? Bioshock Infinite is currently on sale for $10 on Amazon, and Deus Ex has been available for under $5. I don't really follow the other games enough to know their pricing history, but I don't imagine many, if any, of those games can easily be sold for $20. The games...

    Smoking: i5-2400 BOX $75 @ Frys, YMMV

    I have been out of spec-ing CPU's for some time. I have an i5-2400 available nearby. How good of a deal is it? I don't need a new CPU, but my Q6700 is getting a bit long in the tooth.

    *Starts 08/29* Amazon PC Digital Download Labor Day Mega Sale

    There is a mod that makes keyboard and mouse far more usable. I completed about 40% of the game so far, and I don't think they keyboard and mouse has been a major impediment. It can be a bit inconvenient at times (and in a game this punishing, that can be frustrating), but I would still...

    Amazon: Civ 5 Gods & Kings - $7.49 !!! (Mac version, will work for PC version too)

    Hey Guys, Thanks for the heads up. I was thinking of jumping on this deal, but I have no idea what the "Editor's Choice" promotion is from amazon. I couldn't find other information online. Does anyone know how it works/how I find out what games are editor's choice/what games have been in past...

    Dell 2007fp refurbished 113.35 shipped AC @ DFS

    For anyone interested in the quality of these, I thought I'd update this with what I received. Well it appears I lost the panel lottery and got a PVA. There was a small black mark on the stand. I did not actually open the panel itself because I was primarily interested in an IPS and will likely...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    You didn't bother to make that same comment for the people who expressed opinions you agree with. I guess people who agree with you are allowed to have opinions. But those who don't you'll be intolerant and roll your eyes at. That's not exactly a mature reaction. You do realize public opinion...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    I honestly don't know what point you are trying to make. My question about nukes/anthrax was based on the fact that people say you can't restrict/license/register these devices because it is a slippery slope. To support that stance, you have to also agree that you can't restrict owning/selling...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    My whole argument is that there are shades of gray. Ordovician suggested I couldn't argue for licensing/registration of lasers because that logic taken too far would result in the banning of guns. That argument is only logically consistent if you agree with taking the idea too far in the other...

    And where exactly does that stop. Should someone be allowed to purchase weapons-grade plutonium? Should I be allowed to develop and sell biological weapons? After all, you seem to think the the government has no right to tell me I can't own a nuclear warhead or anthrax.

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    The fact that these are readily available whether by eBay or other sources is an argument in favor of proper controls being put in place for sale of these items. It is really not so far-fetched to need a registration/license to use something that, at best, has exceptionally niche application and...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    Slippery slope? I'd certainly hope you realize I was making an intentionally inane argument to point out that your strawman argument makes for unintelligent debate. How precisely is it "stretching" for me to point out the warning they include on their own site about not pointing it at aircraft...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    Strawman much? If suddenly strawmen are legitimate arguments, I can just explain how you think the government has no right to shutdown an individual building a nuclear weapon because it hurts the hobbyist :rolleyes: My stance is that an item like this, one that no one has yet provided a...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    Do you actually know the methods this is currently achieved with, or are you merely speculating? Somehow I find the idea of mounting this non-custom laser to a CNC machine to be hackish. A customized laser attachment that only functions when mounted to a CNC machine would be significantly...

    I lean libertarian as well, but regulation of purposeless weapons falls within a realm of government intervention I am comfortable with. You apparently don't object to the concept, merely that this case warrants it. So you at least agree with the arguments here in spirit; you simply feel they...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    Out of curiosity, what task can you accomplish with this laser that you can't do with already available alternatives? It doesn't seem to me like this laser is filling any important niche for the general public. So making something that has potential to be legitimately dangerous readily available...

    Wicked Lasers Spyder III Arctic 1W Blue Laser *screaming*

    Your argument seems to be that the government has no right to ban or regulate dangerous items. So by extension, I assume if one could purchase a $200 hydrogen bomb, you would be comfortable with the idea that its sale was completely unrestricted?

    Speaker Stand Suggestion for AV40s

    Hey Guys, I recently picked up a pair of AV40s. My desk is far too small to fit them however, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for speaker stands. I will flank the desk with the speaker stands, and the stands will rest directly on a carpeted floor. Thanks for any suggestions you...

    AV40 Best Value at Moment?

    I had a few questions that are probably rehashing earlier questions. However, I searched and browsed 5 pages to try to find the answer and did not really find an adequate answer. I currently have an Audigy 4 soundcard for my computer. I used to have a set of z5500s but gave them away when I...

    Pixel Issue

    The Green and Blue actually fire correctly. On a white background, they are completely off. On a black background, the pixel is black (indicating they are firing). On a Windows Classic Blue background, they fire but it is darker than you would expect the blue to be (presumably because the red is...

    good monitor for pc and ps3 gaming...

    10e did an extensive review on the monitor and his tests showed no input lag difference between a CRT and the FP241VW when mirroring the output. You can see his analysis in the official FP241VW thread.

    Hey Guys, I got my FP241VW yesterday. So far I am quite impressed. Thanks to 10e for an excellent color profile. I do seem to have one pixel issue on the monitor however. When on a white background, the pixel is red. When on the Windows Classic blue background, it is a darker blue. When on...

    Hello, I was looking to see if anyone might be interested in purchasing a BenQ FP241VW. I am speaking with a rep, and I may be able to get a deal if two are purchased at the same time (even with separate credit cards). The monitors would come out to $425 each (before taxes and shipping) If...
