    Mowing over high PPD folders from yesteryear

    In honor of memorial day and as a little F@H memorial of sorts I fired up the gaming rig to fold over the weekend. Rig is going away soon as I'm shipping out again in a couple weeks but a few days on the electric bill for old times sake won't hurt Side note, after just like 12 hours I already...

    Mowing over high PPD folders from yesteryear

    Was going to comment about how much it took to hit 20k ppd and break into the top 10 daily but then FLECOM posted on the thread so I am forced to still bow my head and press F for respect lol

    After Ampere Launch Survey

    Going to try for a 3080 FE but if I don't get it I'll sit on my 2080 TI for a while. Really just want that bump in 4k which is where that card looks like it shines, but it's not the end of the world if it doesn't go through on launch

    Um, quite a lot of switch games are $60 lol, and Nintendo rarely does sales or what not on their 1st party games games, hell they still have a launch title at $60 2 years later lol. Plus, a lot of those cheap games you quote are ports of much older games or indies, in both cases dev costs are...

    MSI Betrays AMD's Socket AM4 Longevity Promise: No Zen2 for 300-series?

    The benefit comes from people spreading their upgrades out over cycles. If you bought a decent 370 board and then a cheaper or used 1st gen ryzen, then you could get the 3rd gen later in a good CPU, you aren't spending as much up front which helps for being on a budget but still seeing gains...

    MSI Betrays AMD's Socket AM4 Longevity Promise: No Zen2 for 300-series?

    Yes, because they aren't going to promise that if there is maybe a 12 core or high OC 8 core that it will work on every single board so it's easier to put out a blanket statement now so that way they can avoid shit like this where 10 pages of people lock on to one tiny detail that doesn't matter...

    MSI Betrays AMD's Socket AM4 Longevity Promise: No Zen2 for 300-series?

    And if you go to page 11 you find out that, shocker, some T1 support dude in Germany doesn't speak for the entire corporation and MSI has already addressed this as false Too bad it's 10 pages of mental gymnastics and internet hate mechanics before you get there tho so let me save you some...

    depending on how they do it it may even be able to emulate PS3. I mean they have the code for whatever they are using to emulate PS3 for the streaming service, I would imagine at this point we aren't far off from emulating that based on these specs Now will they is another issue. I really wish...

    I would imagine it's just a 1TB drive if it's a pure SSD, I doubt it will be bigger unless it's a hybrid of some-sort. The costs wouldn't play well to include a 2 TB or larger SSD into every system, along with the rest of the next gen stuff

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection Is Coming to the PC

    As much as it would be great to just get it for free if you already own it, like play anywhere, I doubt it. I could see $40, maybe $60 just because reach, but since it sounds like they are retooling each game one by one for PC I doubt we'd get that level of man-hours for free

    My windows copy of GoW Ult is still broken on 2 machines lol, and 4 took me a solid week to download because I had the exact same issue that thousands of us did (I had open trouble tickets and remember being on like 50+ page forum runs of people all trying to figure it out). Thank God I dont...

    Amazon Announces Plan to Fight Counterfeits

    "Back in my day" lol. You mean NES and SNES when games were $50 to $75 at the store, had a development team of like 15 people and took a couple months for people to code up on like 8 computers? Yes, there's no way that a game like Cyberpunk 2077 that's taken a team of what, 80-100 folks like 6+...

    Combine this with your replies in the piracy story and I now realize I'm not going to get anywhere with you, you just want to get everything free or cheap and screw big bad companies for wanting the same price for games they've charged for like 3 decades besides costs going through the damn...

    Amazon Announces Plan to Fight Counterfeits

    There's a huge difference between market-place competition and counterfeit products. If you spent hundreds of thousands or even millions on R&D and product test runs to create a great product, you have to sell that product at a price to recoup that. How would you feel if some Chinese ass hat...

    New Study Claims Piracy is Driven by Availability and Price

    To be fair though Far Cry New Dawn isn't supposed to be a "full game" per say, it's kind of like blood dragon and theres another I can't think of, those are just fillers to eek out some more money and entertainment in-between the proper numbered releases. Think of it kind of like their version...

    Plans for First Chinese Solar Power Station in Space Revealed

    no one is commenting that the best they can hope for is one megawatt by 2030? That's 2.5 connex generators lol, and I'm assuming there are bigger ones than that out there. Seems much safer and more practical to just make a nuke plant if they are shooting for a clean megawatt of energy 11 years...

    VR Shipments Decreased 33% Due to a Lack of Bundling and Discounts in 2018

    I ended up getting one for ps4 pro, it was fun and I can see it taking off but I'm waiting for Vive 3 before I jump in on the PC front. Even the ps4 job did a decent job of getting me hooked on the idea though, considering that's the worst of the options out right now

    Need some HandBrake help

    After 3 reinstalls and reboots it finally fixed my issue, no clue why it was so damn difficult. Took my 265 speed up to about 15-18 FPS, much better than 1-3 I was getting before. I know its evil but re-encoding non critical things like stand up comedies and some TV shows has already cut off...
