Dark Souls 3 is really good. I'd recommend picking it up.
They really aren't that hard. In DS3, if you can beat the very first boss, you can probably get through the entire game.
DS3 is also much more accessible than other games in the series, since your character is pretty capable at the...
I'm not going to go through the whole chart, but the 2080 launched at $799, not $700.
The 2080 Super (released almost a year later) was $699, though the chart seems to be tracking launch prices, not mid-cycle refreshes or price drops.
Funny how really good deals are showing up a week after I finally jumped on a 55" B8 for $1000... all while I'm still waiting for it to actually arrive!
I'd probably get the E8 if I hadn't already jumped on the earlier one.
Given that I've used an igpu in the past two weeks as a backup (970 that went bad. Using a 1060 now...), I really wouldn't want to give it up on a new CPU.
I mean, it's not great and is no replacement for a dedicated GPU, but its useful in a pinch.
I might consider an igpu-less processor if...
I blame the Oculus Go for making me buy a Vive Pro.
The Go looks better than the base-level Vive, and it annoyed the heck out of me to have this little $200 headset that looked better than my full Vive setup (at least as far as the screen and lenses were concerned; I know that the graphical...
I have a drive that my NAS says is failing, and needs replacement.
What is your experience with warranties on this particular drive?
Can I send it in without the enclosure? If I send it in with the enclosure (and broken clips) will that void it?
And even if that works, what are my chances of...
I'm looking forward to what the consensus is on some of these 2.x slot coolers for the 20 series and the NCase M1.
It'd be really nice if the heatsink can compare with the Arctic Accelero and we just need to replace the fans.
I have an Nvidia 1070 TI Founders edition graphics card on which I have replaced the stock cooler with an Arctic Accelero for quieter operation. However, the bios on the card will make the fans run at a minimum of 27%, which isn't loud by any means, but I'd like to push down the idle noise...
I really liked Spyro 1 back in the day(dunno why I never got very far in the sequels), so I’m glad to see this. PS1 games especially need graphics overhauls due to the technology of the time, and I’m always a fan of platformers.
Has this been confirmed for PC, or just the consoles?
Kinda tempted to sell my 1070 and hold out until the next generation comes out... I can get by with just integrated video + consoles... right?
Though, of course, there's no guarantee that the next generation of cards will be any easier to get a hold of.
I've definitely seen this on my work macbook. The amount it drains is variable, so it's probably based on what's running (and how those processes keep the CPU awake). I've seen probably up to 40% disappear overnight. Average is 10-25%
Having a macbook for work has taught me that I never want to...
Just a guess, but a I think that I’ve returned 3 games or so. All of them were broken pieces of garbage in the early days of VR.
For a brief period of time, I was willing to try out just about anything VR with “very positive” reviews without doing much research.
I still think that VR is...
I can see how they could easily go into R-rated territory and keep things in-line with TNG trek's world view (between the violent Klingons and Riker's many "adventures") but somehow I fear that it'll be more in Tarantino's world view and suddenly they're swearing like it's Pulp Fiction and/or...
So, I was trying to get a WD My Book Duo back up and running with new disks, and it initially complained that the drives weren't configured. I told it to create a new RAID 0 volume (I'd *prefer* just a spanned volume to reduce the risks of data loss, but since that doesn't seem possible, RAID 0...
It's not web searches, it's "suggested words" when typing in a text box, and I had it show up again today on this very website while writing a post (this time, a bunch of console names)
No 3rd party keyboards.
Don't know how to search for malicious apps, though I barely run anything that isn't...
I think that the death of Blockbuster has made things a lot harder. Sure, Redbox has new movies cheaply, but it’s very limited and streaming rentals are generally pretty expensive, both on the high and low end.
Stuff like Netflix is ok if you just want to watch “a movie.” When I’ve been looking...
I read Christopher Franklin’s post on it, and he questions even how Patreon earns more money on it, since now, 10 pledges of $1 each are now broken up into 10 charges. So Patreon itself incurs 10 processing fees:
He basically sees it as a...
Got around to shucking them, but broke the clips :|
7SGMB and 7SGLW
Both 256MB Thailand Reds
Aaaannnddd: I got the first drive that I was replacing into the enclosure. It seems to do some basic encryption on the drive, since it showed as uninitialized, but it works.
I wish that I had...
