    The EU doing the stuff our regulators are too lazy to do

    I agree. I think there is a huge difference in the amount of corruption depending on the country tho.

    The EU doing the stuff our regulators are too lazy to do

    I'm not talking about the small business owner here, we are not in the 1950ies anymore. This is late stage capitalism with income inequality that is only getting worse and it all boils down to greedy people changing our world so they can become more powerful and rich. The fact that diabetes...

    The EU doing the stuff our regulators are too lazy to do

    Companies aren't people and they are purely there for a few people to get rich, so rich that they rival other countries national net worth. Would you rather see a company making 10% less in profit, that already makes billions in profit or half a million Americans getting put on the streets? You...

    The EU doing the stuff our regulators are too lazy to do

    You are talking about American intelligence doing that, not EU. A few years ago CIA/NSA got caught spying on European politicians, like Andrea Merkel. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/us-security-agency-spied-merkel-other-top-european-officials-through-danish-2021-05-30/ The case is still...

    Do you remember your history of smartphones?

    Samsung Note 2, LG V20, Pixel 6. Yup, quite a short list and hopefully the Pixel 6 will last me at least 5 years.

    Battlefield 2042

    Or you could just forget this turd of a game and move on like everybody else. BF5 and BF1 still have a high amount of players where you can instantly find a server.

    Battlefield 2042

    I honestly don't think they have the necessary skill to make another one that won't be another failure as of now. Most of the original developer's from Dice have jumped ship while Ripple Effect Studios are working on their own thing right now.

    Battlefield 2042

    It has no matter. It doesn't matter how many "improvements" Dice will do in the future of BF2042 as it's abandoned and they'll never get even half of the players back.

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    I just shipped my wife's 9900K to Germany (free shipping label and pickup). It died a few weeks ago and as they didn't have a replacement they said they'd be refunding her $500 instead. Enough to buy a brand new CPU and a motherboard. 3 year old CPU with 2 weeks left of warranty and I can't...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    I don't really engage in politics here on hardforum and prefer the forums being somewhat clean of political nonsense, but nonetheless I'm going to reply a last time. Putin is not doing "whatever" he wants even though it may seem like it. Ukraine is a sovereign country who aren't a member of...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    That's not how it works. The West won't let China take Taiwan for obvious reasons and China knows that. If prices gets more out of hand in the next couple of years it's time to stop gaming.

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    Which reminds me that I saw this video about that precise subject a few days ago: The trilogy was definitely something of it's time and it can't be re-done nowadays, even with the huge budgets that's in play.

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    I mean if you read The Silmarillion or any of Tolkiens works you'll find that he is very good at descriping the characters and different beings living in middle-earth. It would not make any sense for Merry and Pippin to be different than anybody else as the region they live in is quite small, so...

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    Why is it a written law that movies nowadays has to have people of every color even if it doesn't make any sense from a historical point of view or because regional differences. The lore to LOTR are based on Celtic, Scandinavian, Finnish, galic and Icelandic tales/beliefs. Now the Haradrim has...

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    I've read The Silmarillion many years ago and it's impossible to make everything in that book into a tv series, so yes I understand, but everything they have shown is so far from the source material that they really shouldn't have named this LOTR and I'm pretty damn sure Tolkien would turn in...

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    You do know why GoT first seasons were good, right? My guess is it has something to do with a certain author of said books. After they couldn't follow George R.R Martin's books the tv series started plummeting real hard. I think you are misunderstanding what people actually want. They don't...

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    Don't get too hyped. It's losely based on Silmarillion, but a far fetch from the original view of Tolkien. My guess is this tv series will tank hard, especially when you consider their LGBT and people of color diversity bullshit even though middle earth is pretty damn diverse as it is. This...

    The hobbit CGI was pretty ridiculous at times.. well most of the time and one of the reasons why it's not considered a masterpiece like the LOTR trilogy. That and the goofy humor.

    Amazon Developing The Lord of the Rings Multi Season Television Show

    Looks more like a parody of LOTR to me. The view of her climbing the ice cliff looks weirdly off and I get more of a Mortal Engines vibe than LOTR vibe. You'll be disappointed, trust me. Take a look at the comments on that YouTube video.

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    This. I will say that fast laptop panels usually have a little higher input lag than most monitors. Obviously not everybody has a need for 240hz or faster monitor, but if we are talking VR headsets I think we could all benefit from faster panels, especially when we reach the realm of 1000hz with...

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    You need a pretty good CPU to maintain that fps in CSGO. I don't play at 360hz but I do got a 270hz 1440P monitor and there is a huge difference for me gaming at 240/270hz vs 144/165hz. New monitors with 480hz is coming out in 2023 as wełl and I'm guessing we will see close to 1000 Hz in less...

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    Show me the lows in CSGO and you'll see a totally different picture. Thing is nobody competitive plays at 4K in CSGO. Even at 1080p and with a 360hz monitor you want to maintain above 360fps with no drops.

    Battlefield 2042

    Unreal engine is terrible when it comes to faster multiplayer first person shooters. It's great for other things, but definitely not a faster paced first person shooter, unless you consider something like PUBG great. It works with slower fps realism games, but still kind of wonky. Much prefer...

    Battlefield 2042

    That is just disturbing. I'm fairly sure BF2042 started out as a Battle Royale game with Dice eventually backtracking, but the next game doesn't even sound like it has anything to do with Battlefield and they'll still use the Battlefield name? They should launch a new franchise instead of...

    9700k upgrade to i7-12700KF

    Well, they are "influencers" or simply streamers with hardly any knowledge, which isn't something new. I'm talking about high competitive players and semi-pro/pro players in e-sport that need those consistent frames which is usually play at 1080p or lower, so CPU matters at that point. I...

    Battlefield 2042

    I've made friends with a couple of people in BF5 (using in-game voice) that I still talk to today and play other games with. The issue here is that the game is dumbed down compared to it's predecessors in such a big way that the average player notice it immediately and I simply won't support...

    9700k upgrade to i7-12700KF

    I'm kind of surprised that people upgrade such small jumps if they are not playing high competitive or at pro level, considering you are all playing with higher resolution with graphics maxed. I understand if you do anything work related that's CPU intensive, but for gaming? I don't get it.

    Battlefield 2042

    I mean could also be that they are testing the waters of how far they can go when it comes to releasing an unfinished game with lacking features, hoping that people still buy and love it, like mindless drones. I think the issue here is the studio heads and I'd wager that if Dice wants to...

    Battlefield 2042

    I mean it sounds plausible as we are moving closer to Idiocracy, but I don't actually think that's what happened here. I think Dice had most of their skilled developers jump ship and Dice were left with the bottom of the barrel developers plus newly hired straight out of school developers...

    Battlefield 2042

    Battlefield 2042 is by far the most half-assed release of any game that a triple A developer has ever done. Having in-game voice and scoreboard as "legacy features" is just mind-blowing and a huge amount of people still gobble it up. If you bought this game on Steam and have more than 2 hours...

    Battlefield 2042

    I actually think BFV was an amazing game in a lot of ways, but it could have been so much more if Dice had supported it after release instead of butchering TTK and waiting a year for any updates. BFV closed alpha was the best infantry gameplay I've ever seen in any BF game, but definitely on the...

    Played the beta and hated everything about the game. it felt like a huge downgrade compared to previous titles, even much older titles of the series.
