    Elder Scrolls VI Release Date: Gameplay Locations and Infinitely Playable like Skyrim Features

    Yay! I'll take it - would be great if they made it so that you can play your game, have a friend jump in from their own game 'world' and do a few quests and leave (while keeping everything else pretty much unique to the player). Not an MMO, just an interesting way to do a type of multiplayer...

    Samsung's first Odyssey gaming monitors include a 240Hz ultra-wide

    I'm curious about it - would have to have it on my desk to check it out (currently using a 38" Dell curved monitor and it works great - larger with a bigger curve? not sure). And lol about Hz stuff again. Higher the better. And most CRTs back in the day (mid-late 90ies) could do at least 60hz...

    Microsoft returning to Flight Simulator in 2020

    Oh yeah, Links - dang, forgot about that series. I haven't played an MS flight Sim in ages... I'd play this :)

    The state of VR - Lost it's steam?

    That stuff already exists - called the Hololens. 2nd Gen is getting ready to come out as well - oh, and you don't have to plug into anything except for charging. And you can walk around your house. or outside. Not quite to the point where you can play full on AAA games etc. but it is a full...

    The state of VR - Lost it's steam?

    ..So.. let me get this straight: VR is a toy that nobody really cares about and won't be good until there's actual content for it and more comfortable to use. How does that work? Tech just suddenly and immediately just does it all right without generational growth and advancement? Without the...

    Assembling a high capacity NAS

    Have a co-worker with qnap, but not sure which one. Though I'm thinking he has one of the more... robust versions lol.

    Assembling a high capacity NAS

    Nice to see this thread as I'm slowly looking into building something like this from scratch or going the qnap way (you know, backup/plex all that good stuff). Several years ago I got a used server for free but after trying it for a weekend it went back. I knew it was loud but didn't realize...

    Seasonic X-750 750W PSU 10 Year Redux @ [H]

    Very cool, makes me curious about the 1kwatt PSU I've been using for almost 10 years! I've used the reviews here for quite a few PSU's in different builds (heck, even in work computers) but it's nice to know that there are still companies really building good stuff that will just continue to...

    Valve Addresses Review Bombing on Steam by Removing Them from Review Scores

    Obsidian Employee is Remaking Star Wars Dark Forces

    So what is it? This rehashed stuff from years ago ported to the current version of Unreal that the guy who posted had nothing to do with? or something else? Instructions on how to download worked perfect, and crap that's a big download.

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    Thank goodness the US of A is a country where we have a constitutional right to free speech where this type of debate can actually happen. I don't believe there is any place in the world that has this explicit freedom. Sure, can lose a job and have other ramifications for what is said (within...

    Valve Addresses Review Bombing on Steam by Removing Them from Review Scores

    Already forgot and maybe it's mentioned... but... wouldn't it be more effective if reviews can only be done by folks that own the game? Or rather, filter on that? I dunno, sometimes it seems pretty obvious when you have stupid bad reviews (harder to tell with good ones though I think) - see it...

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    I'll try out a high-framrate movie properly done. It's... strange how the format stuck to 24fps from practically the beginning (the cost of physical film) and really now that it's not generally being used... still sticking with it because that's how it's always been done. Once a movie comes out...

    Windows 10 Will Uninstall Incompatible Updates

    I'll have to really try this - that update has been failing on my x5670 as well. Just haven't taken much time to figure it out :P

    Diablo Is Now Available for Purchase on GOG

    Still need to grab the SC remaster. Sure, I still have my original disks that I got on a midnight release but it's just... good ol nostalgia :) And yeah - WC2 being released? I'd get that in a heart beat too lol. MAN I played the heck out of that game when we got a modem connection working...

    Doom: Annihilation Gets a Trailer

    Lol - just had to see the list of people involved and what they worked on to see what the quality might be like - though if it ever comes for "free" on some streaming service I'll check it out. Sometimes "cheep" doesn't mean "not good" :) but... uhh... yeah. I'm still a bit mad at the Max Payne...

    3D Realms' "Wrath: Aeon of Ruin" Is a 90s-Inspired Shooter Built on the Quake Engine

    Looks like fun :) and oh yeah, forgot about Ion Maiden - yup, hopefully they can get all these out the door and just do a great job with making them... just fun to play :)

    The Tech World Remembers Jerry Merryman Who Was an Inventor of the Calculator

    RIP. Was a pretty fun project building an ALU - pretty amazing that it really is a pretty base part of a CPU. I have a Monroe Calculating Machine currently in my office too - of course, not handheld as its like a small typewriter - but the fact that you can program it? pretty cool for that...

    Microsoft Introduces the HoloLens 2: Twice the View for $3,500

    3rd Party folks are already working on Hololens tech and there's been concept demos with a Hololens user interacting with somebody using a Vive (HTC and MS have been working together as well). I don't think this tech is going away (3rd party are looking at various price ranges, including down...

    Microsoft Introduces the HoloLens 2: Twice the View for $3,500

    Very cool - Was part of the original push for the first one (Got one for folks to test out at work) and have to say the only thing I didn't like was the FoV. It wasn't tooo heavy but it was a very very cool piece of tech. Will have to let the same folks know about this edition - with twice the...

    RTX Space Invaders Wanted

    Dang, well it's starting to look like something... significant... is borked on the cards if it's not a 'simple' thing like temperature and may need a more destructive look at the card. Thinking Nvidia sorta rolled the dice on this problem popping up in any way meaningful and rather than...

    TSMC Nanke 14 Factory Production Interruption Could Affect NVIDIA and Others

    Curious - is [H] still looking at (or having them looked at) those 2080[ti] cards that died? It would make sense if this was the root cause... but kinda amazing that if it IS the root cause that it took this long to even find out or report? I mean... holy crap. It's not as bad as VW fudging...

    Netflix Raises U.S. Prices

    Can't really complain about Amazon Prime and all the benefits as compared to Netflix (which I have both). But generally speaking if Netflix can continue to create good content people will continue to have it. I think it's starting to near the point where people may just sign up for Netflix and...

    Skyrim Together Is an 8-Player CO-OP Mod for Skyrim

    Always wanted this. Was excited for ESO, then found out it was just another MMO... when in reality I just wanted a local lan game or something similar with friends. Been wanting that since Morrowind lol.

    AMD Radeon VII Interview with Scott Herkelman @ [H]

    Wouldn't it be nice if AMD sampled a card to [H]? :) (Nice to see more and more open dialogue like this) - Can't imagine purchasing yet another card so quickly lol. Hopefully these ones won't start smoking or having all sorts of... issues.

    Can You Detect When Ray Tracing Is Turned On?

    I hear about that a lot. Folks that can't tell the difference between those things lol. When you have a feature that only changes parts of the objects on the screen will only be apparent to those that are really aware of it. If they can't see the difference between 60Hz/120Hz/1444Hz or between...

    Radeon 7 Goes on Sale February 7

    Just lol Instantly complaining about a new card based against the 2080 at the same price point that is equal...and... that's bad? Never mind the fact of the issues with the 2080ti mentioned here, or the fact that ray-tracing or the other new feature of the 2080 is pretty much non-usable (or not...
