    Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (coming to PC)

    Depends if you like the Arkham Batman games from rocksteady. I had fun with both spiderman games but I did not go out of my way to get every side mission or collectible done.

    Worst Game Ever?

    Well I too have issues going back to very old games and replay them, oldest one I can somewhat still play is quake 2. It does not help that a lot of old games were made for CRT's and look like crap on modern monitors and/or at high resolutions. When I was a kid I used to game on a 12 inch CRT TV...

    Top 100 Games played on Steam at any given time just suck

    I don't know a lot of the games, but there do seem to be a lot of multiplayer games which would last longer then some singleplayer game you finish in 6-7 hours.

    Is this peak idiocy in case designs?

    Those mobo panels are mostly plastic, also you can find that other mobo maklers are taking over this trend albeit to some lesser degree. I did like the NZXT fallout mob cover for their ltd ed fallout case.

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

    There was always S.P.E.C.I.A.L. but not sure if that can be adapted for a fantasy game

    New mobo install

    I would like to add that you can download drivers in advance on your current machine to avoid any issues, but normally windows shoulld just detect the nex hardware do some changes and work just fine.

    Newegg Open Box Supermicro boards.... take a chance?

    Maybe Steve/GN should check it out again since they supposedly changed their ways for open box stuff after beeing in that shitstorm

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

    according to the article they have been working at it for 3 years and should release later this years, but according to some developpers it realisticly needs another 3 years, not surre that that timeframe works for the people fronting the money. Change the developpement to a more competent...

    Black screen silliness

    hmm, since it seems to be happening with both IGP and discrete GPU it's bit strange, did you try booting into safe mode? should not load drivers, see if that makes a difference. You could also try a xlear CMOS to see if that does anything, make sure to note all changes you made b4.

    The Last of Us Part I

    Well you don't want to end up with another GTA trilogy remaster fiasco don't you, those guys took the minimal effort approach and look where that got them.

    Troubleshooting an old 3TB MyBook Essential (WDBAC0030HBK-1)

    Not realy, been using an old external samsung HDD as a backup drive and also a WD possport, both seem to work well enough although the Samsung is pretty slow. For long term storage I would still go spinning rust as those seem to retain data the best over long periods of time and even if the...

    Will Not Start after Shut Down Unless You Flash BIOS

    How long have you waited to see if it will not boot, seen a video recently where a defective sata drive(or cable) caused a pc to boot up very slowly. Also did you try an slighly older bios for you board to see if that fixes it.

    Troubleshooting an old 3TB MyBook Essential (WDBAC0030HBK-1)

    the drive should not write to the bad sectors anymore after a format or possibly even a defrag. There is always a chance this drive could keep going as is for years to come without further issues but I would not count on it. I don't know if you move this drive around a lot, but if the bad...

    Troubleshooting an old 3TB MyBook Essential (WDBAC0030HBK-1)

    You could do that but usually once sectors start to go bad chances are more will follow, I for one would not trust this drive with data I can not replace.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Seeing that some shops ever here still charge 1.200€ and more for RTX 3080's and up to 2.600€ for 3090Ti's i'm not surprised they don't sell, for a lot of cards there has been stock for well over a year but prices don't come donw, not everywhere anyways.

    WoW: 9th expansion; Dragonflight

    They used to have talent trees and almost everyone would play with the same spec because that was the optimal one, that's why the removed it, not sure why they want to nring it back if they can't make it a usefull addition to the game.

    PCI-E lane question on Intel 690 motherboard with 12700k

    Mayve that's because that is enough for 90%+ of all users, for those who want more there is the HEDT segment which needs something to feel different from the mainstream. Not that I would not like more lanes but i doubt there is a lot of demand for them and the DYI market is peanuts for intel...

    Fallout: London

    European location could be fun, but that would be more of a hardmode as people in Europe have a lot less weapons lying around vs the USA, oh well alternate rimelines could fix that.

    Just saying Blizz is having a sale atm and shadowlands is 50% off.

    Think I stopped using mods (other then some mmo's) around the q3 days. Too many games to play already and too little time to play them.

    A waitlist does not make demand go down, they can't sell more then they can produce.

    Warcraft 3 Reforged

    They did not release many "new" games in the last decade to begin with and half of those they did are f2p so at least no monetary loss there if you don't like them

    SK Hynix 1TB P41 NVME not as fast as reviewed drives - how to tune?

    Depends on the amount of chips on the drive, cache may make up for lower write speeds not so much for read speeds.

    PCI-E lane question on Intel 690 motherboard with 12700k

    If you add an NVMe drive to a slot other then the one connected directly to the CPU it will go trough the chipset, unless you are connecting and using tons of devices on there at the same time you should not notice any difference in performance.

    Are the majority of new game purchases loose in the case or do I just have bad luck?

    Not saying 0 but should be close to, can't day the same for audio CD's, but their locking thingie is a lot more prone to breaking

    Activision Blizzard employees win their union vote

    Maybe it's less important for QA testers, but having your staff go trough 6 months+ of crunch mode and hope that they bring out a decent game also seems counterproductive and is maybe a reason so many games ship bugged.

    Most Milked Franchise

    I think there is still time for that, hardware is still somewhat lacking to get a good ray tracing experiece, if they have a decent story and some other goodies like improved AI it could be pretty succesfull.

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    I finally got "lucky" on AMD's last drop and managed to snag a 6750XT to replace the 570 4GB card I had in my AMD machine, now to find some time to test it a bit, only got round to installing the card so far.

    B450 Aorus Pro WiFi Resetting/Rebooting Constantly

    Not that rare, Greg Salazar had a couple bad ones in PC's he repaired for viewers, AMD's CPU's seem somewhat more fragile then others, not a ton but still a noticable amount and this new one is a whole different beast so there may be some kinks due to that too.
