    Bethesda Details Fallout 76 Patch Schedule and Faces Backlash Over Bags

    Apparently folks, if you are an official Bethesda "influencer," then you received the proper canvas bag to show it off on social media.

    The U.S. Supreme Court Debates Taking Apple App Store Antitrust Case

    All console games are licensed and sold at a fixed price. That is much more anti consumer than what Apple is doing, where the developer sets the price. Unofficial apps are cool, but they don't make much money or have much market share on Android.

    Bing Flags VLC's Official Site as Dangerous

    So they flag VLC's site because some of the software they provided had a security hole. Does that mean Microsoft is flagged in Bing as well? There have been a few exploits with their software I'm pretty sure.

    The FBI Impersonated FedEx to Catch Cybercriminals

    Pretty pathetic that cybercriminals would open up a word document after they avoided a honeypot link. Good job regardless, FBI.

    The U.S. Supreme Court Debates Taking Apple App Store Antitrust Case

    There are no lawyers in existence that can win this one. If they did it would dismantle the business models of Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony. Next they will tell Netflix they aren't allowed to have exclusives. Just think, in the 90s we were worried about Microsoft bundling it's...

    GoFundMe Homeless Vet Scammers Get Visit from Johnny Law

    GoFundMe is a pretty neat concept but the majority of the ones I see are for people whose car or air conditioner broke down. Sad. But in other news these people are going to get what they deserve. Let's see what the woman gets vs the two white males.

    Credit Card Chips Fail to Halt Fraud, Survey Says

    Some places I have to still swipe. Some places I have to choose debit or credit. Some places I have to put in a pin. Some places I have to sign. Some places I just put it in and magic happens. That's what she said.

    Bethesda Using Upgraded Version of Creation Engine for The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield

    You seem to think I was disagreeing with the fact that the engine needs improvements. I am not, I fully agree. Didn't Unreal Engine have a full rewrite at some point? Maybe I'm hallucinating. Unreal Engine was developed as an engine from the ground up with no specific game in mind, but did have...

    Xbox Chief Admits Microsoft Has "A Ton of Work to Do on Windows" for PC Gamers

    Windows store can just go away now. Nobody is making money on it. It's purpose was to have compatibility between Win64 and MS's Arm devices. That need is now gone. They can do something more like Steam, and give discounts for publishing / licensing fees if it's published on both systems.

    Bethesda Using Upgraded Version of Creation Engine for The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield

    Is this news? Did you guys think something different? They've been using this engine since Morrowind. If you think about it, its really impressive that what was built in 2002 has scaled all the way to Fallout 4. It's age is showing though and there are better methods to do a lot of the things...

    Amazon is Cracking Down on Top Reviewers

    Amazon doesn't want to fix this stuff. I tried buying a WiiU so I could play Breath of the Wild and ended up buying from a fake seller. They mailed a fake package that was delivered to an address states away from me. I looked at the seller feedback and lots of people were saying they fell for...

    Motherboard Makers Are Moving Manufacturing Out of China

    I'd rather have Uncle Sam spying on me than a communist dictator who only keeps us alive because of our economy. I'm sure I have an unpopular opinion but that's the way I see it. Guys, I just say Mexico because it will still be cheaper than the United States. It's less money going to China. We...

    Microsoft Announces xCloud Game Streaming Service

    I agree with you guys, but I have to point this out: Remember when we scoffed at the idea of digitally downloading games to the current generation of consoles and not having physical media?

    Audiences Abandon Amazon Prime and HBO While Netflix Grows

    I mean, they are holding onto that final season of Game of Thrones so that people keep their subscriptions longer, right? Good point, I recently ditched my prime because: 1, the packages don't always arrive on time, 2, Amazon's tack on services such as Music get more limited as they try to sell...

    RPG Game Suggestion For Girlfriend

    Honestly, your best bet is Zelda or Skyrim. Not saying Skyrim isn't complex, but I don't think you should throw something easy at someone just because they are a beginner or female. Both games are kind to low skill and grow with the user in complexity.

    Linus Tech Tips: "Linux Gaming Finally Doesn't Suck"

    I can't agree. I don't know how Microsoft has held back PC Gaming when it created Direct X. Their worse offense is that it supported more features than Open GL. Back in the day it was buggy, but I can't remember a bug attributed directly to Direct X since before Windows XP. They created...

    Huawei Claims the Kirin 980 is Faster than Apple

    Linus Tech Tips: "Linux Gaming Finally Doesn't Suck"

    Scenario 1: Hardcore gamer. Has all the lastest hardware and spent a fortune on it only to save a few bucks buy using Linux instead of Windows despite the drop in performance. Not likely. Scenario 2: Casual gamer. Has been meaning to upgrade that FX8350 and 7970 ghz edition but it still keeps...

    Huawei Claims the Kirin 980 is Faster than Apple

    Even if this were true, as iOS is made specifically for that specific hardware, it should be more optimized. Also, Huawei will give you privacy AIDS.

    Use Brave Browser + as a search engine. Brave automatically blocks tracking cookies and prevents fingerprinting your browser. It is based on Chromium so you get the same performance. Now, if we just had a way to convince everyone to leave Facebook to go to a new social media network.

    How do you feel about Nvidia pricing on the new RTX video cards?

    I would certainly hope so, but maybe hoping Intel's graphics would even equate what AMD puts out is unrealistic. AMD has failed to compete and now Intel is using AMD's guy. Maybe he can do something different with that access to that big ol pile of money. Fingers crossed.

    The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is Too Damn High! @ [H]

    You are paying for the technology that was put into it, but I don't know if games will be taking advantage of that any time soon. Just like how all our games are'nt faster now for async compute. But then again, aren't you always buying a new card because of what's new in it? Conflicted by these...

    ^ Yeah, Musk was asking for that one. When asked why he called him that, he said something along the lines of, "He is a pedo guy, notice you don't hear him defending himself?"

    Verizon Rolls Out 5G to Select Cities

    I was fully expecting a back lash of people going, "nuh uh... they said it was unlimited so it will be unlimited you guys are just being negative... competition is good blah blah blah blah." I guess I underestimated how bad Verizon has been over the years.

    Well said. Remember, he is not a business man by trade, he is not Bill Gates, nor Steve Jobs. He is an engineer, who admits he is not the best at CEO, but wishes to maintain control of his businesses.

    I don't like drugs. I think Elon Musk is brilliant. These two ideas are exclusive. The mainstream media loves pot. They don't like some of the things Musk has said over the years. Figure out where I am going with this?
