    Google Lets Anyone Email You Without An E-mail Address

    I just don't see how this makes G+ any more or less mandatory. I have no one in my circles so I should be able to leave this option enabled and have it never effect me.

    Google Lets Anyone Email You Without An E-mail Address

    You can easily turn it off. I hate G+ but I am kinda failing to really see a reason to be outraged.

    Keyboard And Mouse Support For New Consoles

    You are free to do it, but I don't really consider it the same thing. Hooking a controller up to a PC, it works as different type of device and can use whatever drivers work. Hooking a keyboard+mouse to a console, you still need to hack or otherwise fool the console into still thinking it's a...

    Inside the Box: Field of View

    A low FOV doesn't actually make the hitboxes larger but it does give a zoomed in perspective - when targeting an enemy far away they could take up a larger portion of your screen. Decrease your fov and adjust your mouse sensitivity and you've just replicated how a scope works in many games.

    Inside the Box: Field of View

    I know in Counter-Strike Global Offensive the only setting to change the FOV is locked with sv_cheats (cheats have to be enabled for it to be changed.) By default it changes with the aspect ratio - something like 94 for 4:3, 100 for 16:10, and 106 for 16:9. I figure a lower FOV can make...

    Intel’s TV Set Top Box Includes A Built-In Camera

    I can already imagine some truly ridiculous setups

    The Xbox One Won’t Play 360 Games – Even Digitally

    Could it not be $60 for some games and $10 for others? I wouldn't assume that the fee would be the same for every game or that it has to remain the same over time.

    Firefox to Play Console-Quality 3D Games

    Bring Firefox OS into the picture and I think their motivation and point is actually almost clear.

    Hilarious 'Star Trek: The Video Game' Trailer

    Star Trek Elite Force 1 and 2. The first was done by Raven Software and the second by Ritual Entertainment - both were Quake 3 engine. The singleplayer was cliche but passable and the multiplayer was basically a quake 3 mod. The new game is by Digital Extremes (co-developed Unreal, UT...

    Sony Wants To Ship 16 Million PS4 In 2013

    The required PS3 firmware actually varies from game to game. The only good table I can find is in the context of "backups." Sometimes you have the choice to update from the disc or quit, without any way to continue.

    EA Building Microtransactions Into All Its Games

    Dark ages of the console video game industry. They can offer these micro-transactions on the PC but I can't imagine them being real moneymakers. If it's over-priced gouging, we can always get it for free - if it's too hard or monotonous, we can cheat. Why pay $3 to gain some levels when you...

    Better Hurry! Nexus 4 is Free from T-Mobile

    Why do companies call it unlimited internet when it becomes dial-up after you've blown through your allotment? Because semantically, they can get away with it.

    Sued For Making A Counter Strike Map

    :rolleyes: These people still really do not understand the idea of user-created content.

    Bungie: 'Nobody Plays Shooters With A Mouse And Keyboard'

    That's essentially just joystick + mouse - not a common combo but not new. Not the greatest study ever done but here's one comparing a mouse, xbox360 controller, and wiimote. Bottom line is that mice are both fast and accurate, game controllers...

    Gates: Bing Is A Better Product Than Google

    I just use duckduckgo - it's a sorta meta search engine. You just add the code for wherever you want to search into your query. Sorta like old keyword functionality in your browser except already populated with a couple thousand search engines. So I'm constantly switching between bing and...
