    Intel Officials Allegedly Say that Apple Could Move to ARM Soon

    A lot of people myself included have moved to Surface pro tablet/desktop. While the original surface wasnt so hot I think Microsoft made a really smart decision attacking apple studio user base.

    Intel Officials Allegedly Say that Apple Could Move to ARM Soon

    I would think that apple users would benefit more from a move to AMD since their chips are so studio application focused. Seems like a lot of development money to be throwing around on consumer products. Seems like it also would be that much more difficult to support even after they get past the...

    Yes, Rian Johnson Is Still Working on His "Star Wars" Trilogy

    I know lucas handed them an outline as part of the sale and they threw it in the garbage. I'm not sure why. Katheen kennedy has a wealth of credit under her belt, I really dont know what got into her. The funny thing is they originally gave the trilogy to Michael Arndt, the guy who wrote Toy...

    EVO Japan Cuts Sexual Dead or Alive 6 Stream Short, Issues Apology

    As an owner of dead or alive on Sega Saturn I cant imagine a world where this wasnt the series direction. That said people whinging about sjws clearly have no concept of that term and their goals. The backlash is puritanical in origin. If (jkingly) sjws had their way every female character would...

    "Forgettable, Repetitive": Early Reviews Aren't Kind on Anthem

    I keep hearing this "bioware" term thrown around. Bioware ceased to exist like 10 years ago. its just a marketing term now for 30 or so game developers who were looking for a job out of college. rather than spend $50 on anthem Id rather just bet it on some kickstarter being launched by the devs...

    Metro Exodus Is Now Being Review Bombed on Metacritic

    Thats pretty shitty. While Ill admit I am boycotting the game as this seems like another scheme, just like recently closed Razor store, I dont think its fair to verbally punish a developer, especially a practically indie one for accepting good money. shitting on deep silver and the 4a guys for...

    Yes, Rian Johnson Is Still Working on His "Star Wars" Trilogy

    thats why I say "selectively". At first they were like "f*** EU" Then they realised thrawn is a total cashcow and they couldnt write an interesting villain to save their lives. I watched rebels, its pretty great after the second season. Im guessing theyll keep the kid and thrawn in their back...

    Yes, Rian Johnson Is Still Working on His "Star Wars" Trilogy

    I consider myself a Star Wars fan apart from other fans. If you toured my house or work space youd see stars wars vehicles galor but not single reference to all the ancillary bs like jedis and sith. As an artist and an engineer Im obsessed with ralph mcquarries "lived in universe" and designs. I...

    Metro: Exodus

    Watched the other day. Really makes me wish there was a demo. I know what Jims talking about, reviewers tend to be so obsessed with the general aspects of a game that they dont take time to ask was the game actually "fun". I absolutely agree with anyone whos says Farcry games are empty garbage...

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

    I watched pauls hardware talk about it. he highlights the twenty or so mistakes they made. He made really excellent points, not feeding into the negativity, about how they could have handled this better. Pointing out folks like LTT who will totally vlog their extreme fuck ups. Im a...

    Far Cry New Dawn Launches Today

    I'm with you, while it had its problems Farcry 5 was pretty great. I was really excited thinking Farcry New Dawn was gonna be a full game. In my stupid optimism I honestly thought somehow Ubisoft has this amazing idea to develop the games in parallel for this big two part storyline that would...

    Far Cry New Dawn

    hmph, well now I'm on the fence, if its "kind of an expansion". Ill admit I didn't follow development but I was hoping it was full new game. eeeeeh.

    Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    The radeon VII seems like a such difficult card to review out of context. Even building around it seems so situational from sound tolerence to gaming preference. Looking forward to seeing how the market shapes up when these become readily available.

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    I gotta take his side. Im just not that invested in "troubleshooting". I think as far as home use goes, Linux is a platform for people who enjoy learning things the hard way, poking and prodding. You know I'm clapping for you all the way. You get'm FUCK WINDOWS! and all that jazz, but my goal...

    Hot (?) Playstation Classic - 40$

    You know, I'm kind of a retro gaming extremist(now the proud owner of a RHEA ODE) but I don't own any of the mini-consoles. In a weird way rather than it hitting my nostalgia button it feels like a fuckin slap in the face. It's like "here you pathetic millennial fag fuck, heres a shitty version...

    Report Claims Huawei Tried to Steal Screen Hardening Tech

    Man, this thread got toxic. At any rate it sucks for them, Im a designer and I have to share my ideas and designs with a massive crowd of vendors and other folks in my industry. I'm always on the lookout for my shit suddenly popping up in someone else products. Its just a fact of life in my...

    I ran a few benchmarks... GTX 1080 ti FTW3 VS RTX 2080 ti FTW3 @ 3440x1440

    Im curious about this, from a technical standpoint does ultrawide 1440p compare exactly to 2k or is it 4k or somewhere inbetween? I mean as far as GPU impact. I'll watch the videos in a few minutes.

    Activision Blizzard Begins Cutting 8 Percent of Its Workforce

    its kinda sad when Magic: The gathering got bought by Hasbro they were making year over year profit, but the problem is hasbro does quarterly earnings and forecasting. They tried to explain "but we dont put out new sets that often" Hasbro - "you do now" the whole thing crashed hard and they...

    RTX2080ti black currently $1019 The RTX2080 series cards have been as low as $630 just gotta keep an eye out. Naw, my next upgrade will be whatever the 4k+ HOR+ 100hz+ Ultrawide is...

    Theres something like 50+ available at my local microcenter I dont think they're selling well. Actually the Black edition is showing 1019.99 not even on sale. I imagine Microcenter will drop it to 899 any day now if sales are really that bad.

    Today's Battlefield V Patch Adds DLSS and Optimizes Ray Tracing

    More interested in co-op. Should be fun for a day or two.

    This, I dont think this is a special price. Ive witnessed this same price several times now. Though I disagree that its unusual. I'm holding off, I really believe prices are gonna crash in the coming weeks. 800 is a more realistic price for this. At least thats more my limit for the value this...

    The Army's Next-Generation Rifle Will Be "The iPhone of Lethality," Officials Say

    I'll admit I'm not up on the latest rifle tech, but this screams development hole for military budget inflation. Wouldn't surprise me if they're likely facing cutbacks. I imagine field maintenance issues would put a stop to any fancy computer bullshit. Having your gun reboot and stop detecting...

    Chinese Telecommunications Hardware Is About to Be Banned by Executive Order

    Again, not surprised. This one's fairly non-partisan even though its coming from an exec order. China's gotten caught one too many times using shell companies for espionage. I'm fairly confident the pentagon has already statements supporting measures against them. I could see this being cemented...

    EA Forecasts 6M Sales for Anthem in Six Weeks

    I dont know anybody whos particularly excited for it, irl at least. The whole office full of gamers has been pretty meh. I only know one person who played the demo but it crashed or they couldnt get in, so much so that they only played maybe 5 minutes.

    AMD, NVIDIA Have Launched "The Least-Appealing GPU Upgrades in History"

    I think its a combination of things - In addition to disappointing price per dollar there's just not an engaging reason to purchase anything at all. The 4k gaming monitors are finally here but they're not even ultrawide and they run something like $2000 dollars. If 4k+ 144hz Ultrawide was here...

    EA "Respawns": Company Up 16% as Apex Legends Reverses Entire Loss

    I have to admit watching the gameplay, it appeals to me more stylistically than any previous battle royale. It seems more mature and team focused, like esports was their target audience and not tweens on twitch.

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    I love how much people get labeled around here. At any rate, while I appreciate the intent of the tax credit, but I don't think propping up industry, however noble, should be the federal governments purview. I think the mph increase requirements are more what the government should be focusing...

    Google Fiber Ends Service in Louisville

    Born and raised in Louisville, I was with Insight in Network Engineering all the way from @home and left when TWC came in. I can only comment on a few factors. One being that Louisville is a really really old, very densely populated but also very forestry heavy. Doing infrastructure upgrades to...
