    AMD Reports 3rd Quarter 2019 Financial Results

    I wish I had bought more than a measly 100 shares of AMD stock when it was $2 a share. I bought it more in an effort to support one of my favorite companies with full expectation that I was probably going to lose a good chunk of that money. Who knew that it is the only reason my stock portfolio...

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    I especially would like some of the older nostalgic tracks that have gone away. I miss some of the ones that were based out of Japan. A few of them did make a return in FM7 thankfully, but others like the Fujimi Kaido did not. My only other gripe is that some of the cars still don't sound like...

    Tesla Is Unveiling Its All-Electric Crossover, the Model Y, on March 14

    I think Musk is on the right track as he has realized just how important having a diverse product line-up will be to the success of Tesla. I drive a diesel truck but have always been fascinated with Tesla. I even put a deposit down on a M3 until I found out that I would be working in a remote...

    Samsung Quits Blu-ray Player Market

    The problem with 4K streaming is the quality of the stream and the bandwidth needed to maintain a certain level of quality. I am a huge fan of maintaining physical media, but who even makes a decent Blu-Ray player anymore? I am still using my Denon which is a rather higher end unit. The job it...

    Bethesda Purges Duped Items from Fallout 76

    Honestly, I think the appeal originally was that it was a technical masterpiece at the time. I did not like how there were huge gaps in the storyline that were inadequately explained by a cutscene with a Russian guy talking. The story and action just did not feel continuous.

    New DOOM Movie News

    Am I the only one who thought the original Doom Movie with Karl Urban and The Rock was pretty damn good? Maybe it was not a good movie for the general public, but it was damn good for those of us who got to experience just how that simple pixelated shooter changed the industry. I just hated the...

    Unreal Envisioned Through Unreal 4 Eyes

    One of the greatest games of the era. Truly a masterpiece in terms of graphics, sound, and level design. I honestly would rather keep it the way it is for the sake of nostalgia unless they plan on doing a remake with all new high resolution and high detail textures as we saw in the remakes of...

    3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 (my first 3dfx card)

    Or in a Pentium 200 MMX IBM Aptiva. I have all of my original Voodoo cards from 1, 2, and the Voodoo 3 3500. My neighbor at the time even had an HP Pavilion that came with a Voodoo 1 integrated into the motherboard. Very sad that the company that revolutionized desktop gaming went out so quick...

    Atari VCS Hardware Specs Revealed

    This is probably going to flop. Yes it can do a lot more than simply play retro games, but the market for this is going to be very limited. Nintendo really got the price point for nostalgia issue right when they launched the NES, SNES, and when they relaunch the NES again for a second run. These...

    Walmart Associate Delivery Pays Employees to Deliver Packages After Shift Work Ends

    Absolutely not. I go to a family owned pizza shop where I have known the employees who work for this employer since 1995. Their pizza is not even the best, but I go there because the service is and plus it is always nice to know the people who you are doing business with.

    Walmart Associate Delivery Pays Employees to Deliver Packages After Shift Work Ends

    This would be my biggest concern. The Walmart down the street from me is actually so bad that I drive 20+ miles to the Walmart out in a wealthy suburb to do most of my shopping. I really love Walmart, but probably wouldn't use this type of option. I would only utilize this if they guaranteed...

    NYC Teens More Interested in Video Games than Sex According to Study

    That is the issue as I don't have time for any hobbies. I'll have to figure something out though as I am quickly burning out to the point where I am starting to feel apathetic about everything. I am considering relocating into rural Eastern Kentucky right now and getting away from it all.

    NYC Teens More Interested in Video Games than Sex According to Study

    That was back when I had Steve and Kyle change my name for me on this forum as I was using my real name. I used to enjoy PC gaming before I settled for just console gaming as it is more casual which thus allows me to pick up the controller and play here and there. Then I just got too busy to...

    NYC Teens More Interested in Video Games than Sex According to Study

    How the hell do kids have 3 hours a day to play video games? Shouldn't they be studying, participating in school activities, or something more productive in life. This is a big problem in society as we are finding that our kids increasingly are unable to be competitive against a globalized work...

    Mass Effect: Andromeda Video Card Performance Preview @ [H]

    Console games locked at 30fps can actually feel pretty smooth so long as it isn't a game that requires twitch reflexes and fast movements. That is because the frame rates are pretty much locked and you aren't seeing the spastic spikes and dips often seen on these charts. That is why back when I...

    RUMOR: Kaby Lake-G Spotted with Separate GPU Chip Under the Hood

    Now that is something you don't speculate on very often. The reality though is that Intel with their incredibly vast resources could crush AMD and ATI and any point. I think it is pretty amazing that ATI could be a part of Intel's processors but at the same time worried that AMD will continue to...

    College Student Adds Self Driving Feature to His Vehicle.

    On the plus side, at least it will only be a Civic if that car plows into you. What I am worried is that more people will be trying stuff like this and then doing stupid things with what essentially will be like a system still stuck in beta testing.

    Nintendo Isn't Worried about the Dead Pixels on Your Switch

    Dead pixels can be annoying as hell. I honestly don't know how anyone could tolerate it unless it is just one or two in a part of the screen that doesn't matter. I just gave my 768p HDTV to Goodwill that I bought on 11/22/2005 and it still had zero dead pixels. My 1080p Vizio TV from 2012 still...

    Ridley Scott: "Alien: Covenant" First Of Three Films, Will Link Into Original "Alien"

    Not really. I just really like her because she really is America's sweetheart. Humble and still down to her roots. Her music is also amazing except when she tried to do pop which I hated.

    Ridley Scott: "Alien: Covenant" First Of Three Films, Will Link Into Original "Alien"

    I am more of a Dolly Parton type of person. I have always thought of Sigourney to be one of those rare cases in Hollywood in that it was more her acting ability than her looks that determined her success. I am a huge Sigourney Weaver fan, just not in the same way many of you guys are "fans."

    Leaked AMD Ryzen Benchmarks?

    Tell me about it. Many websites will peg both cores to 100% utilization, especially if they are the clickbaity type of sites that try to cram as many ads and scripts as possible.

    Leaked AMD Ryzen Benchmarks?

    Considering that I am still running an AMD Turion 64 X2 @ 2.5ghz, I have been waiting for a very long time for an AMD CPU. I had the Phenom II X4 for a while but sold it on the forums here.

    First Android Wear 2.0 Devices Revealed

    I think I will stick with my Breitling and Rolex. Part of wearing a watch is about the art of what makes it do what it does. If I needed a watch to do all of that, my Windows 10 phone easily does everything.

    Gabe Newell Is Doing An AMA Today

    Why the constant fat jokes with him? His weight is of no concern and making fun of his appearance only cheapens your arguments. The real criticism should be around how they have basically ignored those of us who were fans and continue to provide no fan service to those of us who supported his...

    Gaming on the BIG Wide Whatever

    That setup would make me so motion sick I would barf. Seeing how it is a simple FOV adjustment, I feel that Microsoft's concept is far more refined.

    From ATI to AMD back to ATI? A Journey in Futility @ [H]

    Seriously, thank you Kyle. When I bough AMD years ago at $5.50 a share, I had until just recently figured that it was a loss. So much so that I stopped tracking it. Needless to say, I was shocked when I logged in to my brokerage account and saw it trading at $10 a share. In all seriousness...

    AMC Entertainment CFO Talks Flexible Movie Ticket Pricing

    All of that is pretty much why I havn't gone back to the movie theatre since either Passion of the Christ or Star Wars Episode 3. Everything you just stated is almost forgiveable if the movie going experience would at least be sanitary and pleasant. Instead, you get a bunch of pricks on their...

    Ohio Man Charged With Threatening To Kill President-Elect On Twitter

    New Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer

    It didn't even matter at the end as the ending was only part of it for those of us who played it before it got patched. The thought of having to raise your war preparedness level by busting your ass through multiplayer was just stupidly frustrating. It is a game that had no business having...

    New Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer

    They lost me after ME3 forever, no matter how good this ends up being. The stunts they pulled with that game were just unbelievable to the point that they ended up patching it. Forcing you to play multiplayer in order to get the best ending just so they could spam you with in game multiplayer...

    AMD Confirms Zen Launch

    This might be perfect timing as I intend to get a new laptop and or AMD APU based laptop sometime next spring. This Turion 64 X2@2.5 ghz is feeling very disadvantaged these days. No return to PC gaming anytime soon as it would make no sense since I have no time to game.

    Humans Will ‘Bully’ Self-Driving Cars

    So long as self driving cars always yield the right of way to faster traffic when in the left lane, we will get along fine. The minute it starts driving like these pricks who pull into the left lane and block the flow by not passing, my twin turbo v6 will teach it to respect highway etiquette.

    Will You Become A Citizen Of Asgardia, The First Nation State In Space?

    Nintendo NX May Be Revealed Next Week, Price Is “Major Disappointment”

    While Nintendo is sitting on a huge pile of cash, the reality is that one more flop and they could find themselves being destined into what Sega is doing. That really is not a bad thing as I would LOVE to have Nintendo games for my Xbox.
