    Old and Uninformed: I need to replace an 8-year old GTX 680. What's the best $200-300 card?

    Would you consider buying a 5600XT or even a 1660 Ti a bad purchase right now? Are we expecting these cards to further drop in value once 3070/6800 are in stock?

    Everything is gone again?

    Unreal Engine is Getting Destructable Environment Support

    Maps are meticulously designed for balance between teams. Morphing the terrain changes the strat. BF4 had the best implementation of this but it was obvious what they did, they basically designed 2 versions of every map, one nice and fresh and one completely wrecked after a 30 minute campaign...

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    120hz looks good with CGI and video games because there is no illusion required to sell a shot. Punches can connect, bodies can fly, action can be as hard hitting as desired. But when you introduce real humans into the equation you have to cheat, you have to use stunt doubles, camera angles from...

    Oculus Quest Features an Active Cooling Fan

    I had a DK1, DK2 and Vive, each representing a generational leap in technology from its predecessor. The quest is the only new VR device that has renewed my interest, and dare I say pretty damn close to the the final frontier of VR. It has always been about freedom. Whether it was the clunky...

    Rotten Tomatoes Bans "Want to See" Score, User Comments before Films' Release

    Possibly, but honestly I think pretty much all of the comic book movies since Iron Man have been pure ass. Avengers? Sucked, all of them. Wonder woman? Dont get me started. Black panther? Too much SJW involvement for me. They're making movies just to make movies. They're picking all these...

    Nvidia Fakes the Moon Landing

    Do you also look at both sides of the flat earth debate? Or vaccines? It's ok to summarily dismiss the opposition if their stance is complete and total absurdity. We dont need to give "both sides" equal opportunity in some cases.

    Man Who Uploaded Viral Deadpool Movie to Facebook Sentenced to Prison

    These examples and the one's that followed deserve prison time because their actions impacted the lives of others. Uploading a movie to facebook only cost the studio money (in theory). In that case some kind of civil fine is more befitting.

    Google Pixel 3 XL Makes an Early Appearance in Hong Kong [Leak]

    It's not so much quality anymore as it is performance. Any custom launcher as big as TouchWiz will basically take 1-2 years off the lifespan of your device. Whereas a Note 9 running stock might perform flawlessly until maybe 2022, now it'll show its age around 2020 as newer resource hungry apps...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    No, but I've watched youtube videos of it and 30 seconds is about all you need to determine that despite it being "the *most* realistic" it is still highly *unrealistic* overall so there is no merit to contrasting levels of realism to something inherently unrealistic *by a very large margin*.

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    This is as big of a horse shit cop out as any I've ever seen. We are talking about a video game. It's all complete fantasy. You dont get to pick and choose. You dont get to have absurdly unrealistic battle scenarios and then whine about unrealistic gender roles. If you're willing to tolerate...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    So whats the message? Because all I see is that women can now have a more enjoyable experience playing a game they can identify with. You know basically the same thing that enrages you because you feel underrepresented now. RTS is fun. Period piece combat is fun. Not everyone wants to play space...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    Do the foot soldiers represent any type of playable hero? I’ve never played this game so I don’t know what the mechanics are between a general and a peon. If these characters are just like faceless infantry that die by the thousands then of course nobody really cares about their representation...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    You said, or at least implied that anyone who wants unrealistic combat scenarios (besides the ones already in the game since those are totally ok) to go and “make their own games”. But the dev owns this game, they did make their own game, and if YOU don’t like it then YOU go make your own...

    Total War: Rome II Developers Issue Statement on Criticisms of Female Generals Feature

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    Why do you think it was politically driven? And just because there are alternative games doesnt make the alternatives any good. Like saying "just play paladins if you dont like overwatch". Yeah, except one is good and the other is total shit.

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    Ah, “some level of accuracy”. So we both agree there will be levels of inaccuracy, we’re just trying to set the bar. The ability to build castles in minutes and wage war with a dozen horsemen whom die and come back to life repeatedly is ok, but long hair and boobs is a deal breaker, that’s just...

    The Verge Ridiculed for "How We Built a $2000 Custom Gaming PC" Video

    stopped watching after he accused builder of improper ram installation. While *most* boards use an A/A B/B setup I've personally had a board or two that was A/B A/B. Also the fact that he's trying to nitpick on PCI lane bandwidth when he's installing a video card that will have no other options...

    Elon Musk’s Kid-Submarine Was “A PR Stunt,” Thailand Cave Rescue Diver Says

    Comcast / Xfinity Throttling 720p Vids to 480p & Hotspots
