    Microsoft adding a watermark on systems running Windows 11 that don't meet the system requirements

    Is there any real reason to upgrade to windows 11? All I’m hearing are horror stories. Pardon my ignorance on the issue.

    $800 AORUS FO48U 48" 4K OLED (after MIR)

    This is a smoking hot deal. Cheaper than buying it from LG... I might get one. Tempting.

    What game have you put the most time into?

    Brother. Some of the greatest TD games ever schemed and created an entire new genre of gaming (MOBAs). I think this is where I would place peak happiness in online gaming for me. Still play Dota today. DOTA 2 with 3700+ hrs

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I'm not sure why you're talking to me about it? I was answering someone else's question and you're referring back to some comments you made weeks/months ago like I'm supposed to be referring to you as some type of source?

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Net code is still under construction but their goal is a seamless universe for all players, like no mans sky. However, I’m not sure that’s going to work with ping across continents, so I dunno.

    Got this game for Christmas! Finally escaped from hades using the base sword and life steal with Athena deflection on attack. What a blast. I liked bastion but this is more of what I wanted.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Image quality is great, way better than my old TN panel. Colors are bright and vivid—ignore the online “expert” that advises you to put it in race mode (he must be colorblind). I’ve been playing a lot of Hades recently (kind of a devil may cry meets symphony of the night roguelike) with zero...

    I haven’t noticed any ghosting, but I’m also not the guy playing stuff at 120 FPS as I’m still on a Vega 64... for me this is probably it til OLED

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Asus VG35VQ $370 on Black Friday from Newegg... the jump from 25 in 1080p ultra wide to this (1440p) has been mind blowing. Some of the best money I ever spent on my computer.

    Thousands of Playstation 5 consoles being stockpiled by Walmart

    Ah. You’re right about it not being a hill worth dying on. Perhaps this is a reaction to the larger issue of our rapidly growing surveillance state and the looming panopticon which it serves. If the larger issue seems difficult to address, sometimes a smaller issue is chosen as a proxy.

    Thousands of Playstation 5 consoles being stockpiled by Walmart

    Allow me to address your points one by one, please. The info, objectively, isn’t old. It’s from 5 weeks ago. I mentioned I didn’t care for the source, the Cato institute, which is obviously biased, and there is another WSJ article that provides complementary information with less political...

    Thousands of Playstation 5 consoles being stockpiled by Walmart

    That’s not the real issue. The real issue is that Port of Long Beach/ Port of LA is the most inefficient port in all the world, for a number of reasons. 1) the customs office in port of LA/LB is only open from 8:30 am til 4pm meaning the port cannot do intake outside of those hours. 2) Port...

    The Last Of Us: HBO Series

    Yes but let us be specific, briefly. What is so interesting about the “Last of Us” story to let it stand apart from a beloved, long running series like Walking Dead?

    The Last Of Us: HBO Series

    I’ve never played this series and surely won’t watch it. Just from a layman’s point of view, why another zombie series? It’s played out right now. I don’t need another character driven zombie action survival horror series to watch. There are plenty of other video game properties that would...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Running a 7700k. I don't have any reason to upgrade, honestly, as all my gaming occurs at 2560x1080. I've looked for a lot of reasons to switch to Linux and if Win11 becomes the norm I think I'm going to step away from windows. I haven't played a single AAA title that I truly enjoyed since GTA...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Player Discussion Thread

    I have to say it feels a lot like old school Deus Ex. All the different ways to play are a little overwhelming but it’s a lot of fun and definitely engrossing. I lost track of time pretty hard last night.

    China Poaches Over 100 TSMC Engineers to Bolster Domestic Chip Industry

    Condemnation of China is not a full throated endorsement of the USA. The ad-hominem attacks on your fellow enthusiasts is un-called for. Please stop. Those of us in the USA are well aware of the shame of our country’s practices (operation paperclip etc.), and I don’t believe ANY of us worship...

    AMD's best Big Navi GPU may only be a match for Nvidia Ampere's second tier

    I don’t disagree with much of what you wrote, but it seems like the issues with Halo Infinite are not hardware based. There is a lot of chatter coming out that 343i is totally fucked up and the source code/tech is a scrambled mess. Rich at ReviewTech USA did a nice little piece on it a day or...

    Halo Insider Program: Sign Up for Early Access to Halo: The Master Chief Collection

    I agree. I’m not sure why other FPS games still haven’t gotten good vehicle based gameplay into their battlegrounds. UT2k4 did it, Halo did it, Tribes did it before them all, but now the only games that even try are the Battlefield series.

    Alphacool Announces Eisblock GPX-A Plexi Light Cooler for AMD Radeon VII

    I just don’t see the reason to move from a Vega 64 to a Radeon VII... it’s not priced well either in my opinion. What you get for what it costs is even more embarrassing than Nvidia’s RTX launch. That being said, Alphacool makes great products and I would happily give them my money.

    Disney Removes Advertising from YouTube in Response to Child Exploitation Videos

    YouTube has been a disgusting cesspit of child perversion (remember the Elsa/Spider-Man videos that featured sexualized behavior targeted towards young children?) for a long time. Google seems incapable of accountability across many of its platforms.

    Apex Legends Hits 1 Million Players, But Replaced Titanfall 3

    LOVE Respawn. Enough that I would play this game despite me EA embargo. That’s saying something, as you’ll find me in every thread asking people to not give EA money.
