    Bethesda is Asking for Essays in Ban Appeals

    To be fair, they've outsourced most aspects of development to the playerbase for years. Yeah, I'm going for the low hanging fruit, but it's delicious fruit.

    matt167 If you are looking for GTA-style games, GET Sleeping Dogs at that price. I haven't bothered with other GTA-likes, but I thought SD was really, really good

    Anyone using Brave?

    I have been trying it out, have run into some hiccups but like the monetization concept. Which as I understand it is basically a monthly distribution from the wallet the browser creates, proportionate in one way or another to the amount of time recorded as spent on a given page or site...

    What was your first HOLY COW! moment with an actual video card?

    Radeon 9800XT upgraded from a Geforce FX5200. I could turn up AA so high I couldn't even read the text in Battlefield 1942. Geforce 7800 GT in SLI to a 9800 GT was also pretty cool. I think I was playing Fallout 3 at the time, and I was impressed that the same product slot could get so much...

    Dark Souls 3

    Oh, and one more trick. Backstep + attack is cool... but have you ever tried running from a player, then using backstep + VERY QUICKY TURN AROUND + attack? The guy you are running will be chasing you and not expecting that! It worked for me against a few opponents :) (I only discovered that...

    Dark Souls 3

    It's been awhile, so I forget the details, but summon 2 buddies into your world.. and then use the [forgot item name, spot me someone?] which both allows for 1 more friendly slot and simultaneously increases your chances of being invaded (if you are in a popular spot, you will have several...

    Dremel Rotary Tool is a Modder's Best Friend

    Warning! That cost gets super inflated once you discover the awesome multitude of bits to collect and start thinking that every object you see could be improved with a hole drilled or part of it cut off.

    Why not buy premium, expensive motherboard?

    My general mobo buying rules: -If it is for my main rig (which includes OC'ing), I don't buy the top-end primo shit, but I closely scrutinize various features. Primarily I'll seek out a board with higher power phase spec, and everything after that is less important. I'll try for Intel LAN...

    Beware of backing up important data on mechanical drives!!

    Don't dispose of the drive. You can probably get at least some stuff back, but it won't be cheap. The kind of data backup you need is going to be way more than over $100. Down the road you may be in a better position to shell out the cash for recovery, so save it in some place it won't get...
