    Frys going out of Business

    Used to frequent the Houston location the first few years they were open. The store looked dingy last time I was there. It has a less than optimal location (IMO), being sandwiched at least 15 miles in any direction from affluent 'techie' neighborhoods. I'd rather wait a day or so for shipping...

    Research Paper Suggests 20M PC Gamers Will Switch To Consoles in 3 yrs. I call BS!

    I will never be able to drive a console unless they give me a keyboard and mouse. Even then, console games generally aren't geared toward the types of games that I enjoy.

    Asus and their USELESS warranty. (they are at least trying now)

    I've had a similar experience with Asus which is why I hesitated for almost 10 years before purchasing another Asus motherboard. I've only purchased a single motherboard from them since then and will never consider a graphics card, monitor, or laptop. I even weighed the amount I spent on the...

    System Shock 3 Teaser

    I played what was supposed to be a pre-release demo of System Shock 3 (I think) a couple years ago. I was a huge SS fan back in the day so I was excited to play it. But it was rather dull and the game never materialized. Is this by the same guys?

    Here Is 10 Minutes of RAGE 2 Gameplay

    Seems like the yutes (obscure movie reference) that didn't grow up playing Doom/Quake/Unreal may find this fun. I've moved on from these types of shooters.

    Bethesda Confirms Fallout 76 Developer Room Bans

    I think they milked that animation & rendering engine for long enough. 2002 just called and said they want it back (I'm looking at YOU, Morrowind)

    Can You Detect When Ray Tracing Is Turned On?

    I feel RT will make a large difference for games with environments that are purpose-built in order to evoke feelings or require certain game mechanics (lighting / sneak mechanics and horror genres for example). I don't imagine that fast twitch multiplayer games are going to make a huge...

    Curved VESA mount 32" IPS 1440P monitors are non-existant?

    It seems like it wouldn't be that difficult, but I can not find this monitor with an IPS panel. Only ones I can find have VA panels. Anyone know of a mfg that makes this?

    WTB Z77 Socket 1155 mATX or ITX mobo

    Must be LGA 1155 / Socket H2 mATX or ITX form-factor. I prefer the Z77 chipset and/or something geared to gamers and audiophiles. Would consider the right ITX board if it has great on-board sound (e.g. ASUS ROG) I can pay via PayPal.

    Gabe Newell Discusses Possibility Of Half-Life 3

    I believe they attempted to finish it but couldn't come up with a final episode / story line that was worthy of all the hopes and dreams that we HL fans have been waiting for.

    Antec EDGE 650W Power Supply Lucky Draw

    I wanted a power supply that started with 'A' and ended with 'tec', but all of the Aztec power supplies looked really cheap. This one looks pretty nice.

    MSI Z97 Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    The Killer NIC kills it for me. If it had dual NICs, one Intel and one Killer, I would consider it.

    Ducky Shine 3 Mechanical Keyboard

    I wasn't referring to tactile feedback specifically -- I was referring to how the act of typing on this keyboard is much more enjoyable over more common domed keyboards.

    Silk Road 2.0 Hacked, All Funds Stolen

    This is fiat currency of the worst kind. People have made a lot of money mining, but don't fool yourself into thinking you can't lose. I would hazard a guess that nearly everyone that is promoting it has some sort of financial stake in it. Those people stand to lose, and possibly lose big, if...

    We should all be careful in our criticism of others because, well, they may not handle it as gracefully and maturely as most of us (some sarcasm here intended).
