    Review the game you finished recently.

    I do wish they would give a Remastered treatment to the both the original as well as second with expansion. And a remaster like StarCraft Remastered rather than the butchery that was Warcraft 3’s attempt.

    Who here has gigabit internet? Also anybody subscribed to Comcast 6 gig?

    I've had AT&T U-Verse Gigabit since it rolled out in my area a number of years ago. At least a year ago they started offering 2.5 and 5Gbps here as well but for the price increases on them I haven't jumped to one yet. Honestly at this point I'd probably rather pick up like a Verizon 5G Home...

    Retro 3dfx Voodoo1 and Voodoo5 5500/6000 Builds

    That's a very neat idea. Wonder what all it would take to get them working on my Canopus cards since they aren't a reference design.

    Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon (From Software)

    Going to need to keep following along to this as I don't really want to commit to a preorder yet, but would like to reward From Software for finally giving AC another go after so long. Trailer I saw the other day did make it a bit tempting but was also put off by the collector edition...

    GALCIV IV is now early access

    I think I might have played III at some point. Maybe it was either on Gamepass or was a free Epic game at some point in the past year or two? I still occasionally fire up Civ4 and 5 just struggle to get into other 4X turn based games. I'll see if I can check out some gameplay videos sometime...

    Dolphin Emulator coming to Steam

    I much prefer real hardware even if then Blackbeard has raided the treasure chest of games. Although I will concede things like flash cartridges and optical drive emulators can make it quite the costly setup too.

    Apple Supplier Cirrus Falls on Risk From IPhone 15 Design Change

    I had zero idea Cirrus Logic was still around. I thought for sure they died out during the early days of 3d graphics cards. But yeah let’s keep physical buttons around on stuff.

    Nintendo Switch

    Oh I know but that’s kind of just meh over it being built in to the dock. I’ll probably keep holding out to see if they do wind up doing an actual upgraded model.

    I almost never play undocked but I’ve resisted several times only because of the ethernet in the dock.

    Panasonic S5 II

    Glad to see they are finally moving away from contrast detection DFD only. I suspect this means Leica will also move to this AF on their SL cameras. I only get a few misses as it is on stills but it’s still a welcome change. Also seems to be making a few other changes people were yelling for...

    Microsoft to buy Activision Blizzard

    In all fairness, Blizzard hasn’t been truly an independent company since before they were named Blizzard and thus before Warcraft was released. Perhaps their continued successes gave them more autonomy than most studios from their parent companies. I do recall reading stories of them being...

    Scalpers are struggling to sell the RTX 4080 above MSRP, but retailers won't let them return the cards

    Yeah just saw this on Facebook for a NIB card. Good riddance and hopefully having to eat tax and some MSRP helps to keep him from doing it more. Although I’m pretty sure I saw the same seller scalping RTX 3000 cards so probably made enough then to help cover these losses.

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    I got a 3870x2, a small SSD, a usb video capture, some USB-C dock, and some usb port phone charger thing with 6 Lightning cables. And the speaker I think everybody got that had the dead battery inside of it. Have the USB-C in case end up needing it with the M1 Mac Mini, used the phone charger...

    I think I’ve still got it installed will have to give it a go again with the new update. For whatever reason don’t feel like it ever caught me as much as the first game.

    I picked up Triangle Strategy for mine and have played some of it. Gives me the SNES RPG vibe. Kids have been enjoying the Kirby game that came out earlier this year.

    Gamers Nexus investigates Rise and Fall of Artesian Builds prebuilt PCs

    Hope all those who got chargebacks from him for the GPUs have contacted police to make a complaint. Hopefully some also went through USPS so postal investigators can also look for mail fraud. He clearly deserves some prison time for that. The rest seems like an idiot running a company into...

    Yeah it’s not listed anymore right now. Over a couple days it had gone in and out of stock at least 4 times that I noticed. But it wasn't removed until sometime since yesterday afternoon. Their website is certainly not a shining example of e-commerce. :)

    Aug 2022 - FB account no longer required for Oculus, just a Meta account!

    I don’t recall ever reading any real information other than it would require a Meta or Facebook account. Did see a lot of hopes and dreams, but those aren’t worth much.

    They have been a long time provider of hardware support for Macs. They do some crazy enclosures not just eGPU but also rackmount stuff for Minis and Trash Cans, used to do CPU upgrade boards back in the PPC and prior days, etc. 3 year warranty on AMD cards is now the exception unfortunately...

    SteelSeries Apex Pro Wired Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Adjustable Actuation Switches [$99.99 Shipped]

    I had to make sure a USB sleep option was disabled else it sometimes would hang on waking up. Other than that so far the TKL I got a few weeks ago has been wonderful.

    The Oregon Trail for iOS This was the version available through Apple Arcade. I’m not sure on its availability outside of that. Graphics: Looked much nicer than the last time I played it on an Apple II! Looked fairly good for a mobile oriented game. Believe the graphics are the same if you...

    My Navy Exchage - RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3090 Ti $599

    I didn’t make my NEX account until after the base access law that requires a VA disability rating, but I believe NEX also opened up online shopping a long time ago to any honorably discharged veteran when AAFES did as well.

    AAFES (Military/Veteran only) has some 3080Ti FEs in stock. Unlike the rest of their FE cards it’s not at MSRP for some reason. $1318 so not great and probably not worth it over the $1000 3080 12GBs.

    So which KB/M gaming-oriented software is actually good these days?

    I did end up getting a Steelseries Apex Pro TKL once I finally saw they were back in stock. The bummer is it seems Steelseries has sometime recently decided to bloat the software up. It's now Steelseries GG and Steelseries Engine is part of it. I haven't tried to see if I can get just...

    I usually see it regarded as the best AIB for Nvidia cards. Warranty transfers easily as long as it was a new card. There are options for extended warranties for the first owner, although a bit more expensive now than a few months ago. Step Up options for the first 90 days n case you figure...

    Well the tariffs would still apply to cards already imported, correct? Should just be the newly imported stuff that should be exempt. I hadn’t tried since I picked up a GSync only monitor now, but it was around 9am central opening and supposed to start early signups starting 8:45.

    Nintendo's worst mistakes.

    Anymore…they were definitely competing during N64 and to a lesser extent GameCube. No Sony PlayStation to compete against then Cartridges doesn’t even matter either.

    Nintendo's worst mistakes.

    It would have been a failure just like every console add-on has been. But it would have denied or delayed Sony’s entry as a manufacturer. That was the mistake.

    Nintendo's worst mistakes.

    While the N64 may be my least favorite Nintendo home console, I wouldn’t say cartridges was the biggest mistake. It would actually probably be an awful system if it had been stuck with a 1x cd-rom. Imagine the loading with OoT, MM, or even Goldeneye. The controller was absolutely terrible...
