    More than 5 years since launch, the Epic Game Store has still not turned profitable

    The fundamental problem with EGS, is that it's not Steam. That's all there is to it, nothing more to really be said. If you can't offer feature parity with Steam, or have new innovative features etc that outshine Steam, you will not displace it. People don't want multiple storefronts, or game...

    Does anyone here actually use their TOSLINK port on their MOBO?

    Yep, goes to my JDS Labs DAC, then to my JDS Atom Headphone Amp. Lets me swap the DAC over to USB for my laptop if I want to use it at my regular desk.

    Remnant 2 Devs designed game with upscaling in mind

    Hogwarts ran better than Remnant 2 on my PC. Its problem specifically was loading zones, and peoples pc's being slow / not having enough ram / older slower NVME's. I had zero stutters at all, was butter smooth experience. However, I also have 32gb of Ramdisk so YMMV.

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    To clarify, your characters will be moved to standard league. They are not reset. They are not deleted. Still can play em too. Most simply remake them or D3 had rebirth, to refresh your character to be seasonal.

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    The thing that stands out to me is, why is that event not being done at the beginning of season 1? I also really don't care, HC in games like these are lame as hell. People just make weird logout macros, or remove their nic, etc etc to try and cheat around it. Half the time when I play games...

    Scumbag ASUS: Overvolting CPUs & Screwing the Customer

    Steve telling me not to buy an Asus board is quite literally all I need to hear. I will not purchase a board from them again. I really feel like there is a spot for a serious disruption in motherboard manufacturers. I just want a board with solid OC features, fan headers in good spots, and...

    So why is Comcast trying (tracert ?) to connect to a mail server in Sunnyvale, CA when I am now in NYC?

    Not uncommon for smtp out to get filtered on firewalls and such too. Seen windows firewall and home routers muck with it all too many times.

    What happens when IPv6 is disabled, but devices keep receiving IPv6 Link Local Address?

    Mick Gordon (sound designer of Doom) issues statement regarding DOOM Eternal

    Well now that we have both sides of the story, pretty much exactly what I figured it was going to be, just based off of how Mick is. I will no longer purchase from Bethesda, or iD software as long as Marty remains employed by them. This entire thing, is super damning of him. They legitimately...

    Sins of a Solar Empire II

    Herman Miller Embody

    I picked up a Logitech one at the start of covid when the whole WFH thing became the norm. Went with them as it was comfortable, the warranty is good, and Herman Miller is right here in Grand Rapids, MI. If I have issues, I can just go yeet it at them. I really like it, my only thing I would...

    Any chances a router will work properly with incorrect input power? Wants to talk

    You definitely need voltage closer to what it’s designed for. A little high or low can work. Tangentially, I plugged a Adtran Router in our DC Charter gave me, not thinking to check plugged it in. Yeaaaa, it didn’t have 120/240 support. It made all kinds of noises, followed by the magic smoke...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Picked it up, played for 2hrs with a friend and the coop system and such was so frustrating I just refunded it. If your goal is to play it with a friend, its simply not worth the effort. The way the zones are segmented are nothing like other soulsborne so its not really possible to coop...

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    Things I would check Check to ensure you have standoffs on every portion of the motherboard, especially around the gpu area. Check for motherboard heatsinks clipping the card, as the 3090's heatsink is a beefy boi. Looking at pics of the motherboard nothings jumping out at me. Check the case...

    Diablo II Resurrected: Offical Thread

    I played it for a little bit today having never played it before. There are a few things I hope they modernize or add a few more options for, but overall it's phenomenal. It plays great on my PC, and was entertaining. Supported ultrawide even, so im super excited about the game at this point.

    GameStop Stock keeps going up no end in sight

    Well, to be fair even marc cuban is saying buy and hold if you can during his AMA on wsb. The squeeze has not occurred yet as far as we can tell. The prices are being suppressed via shorting back and forth between hedge funds. Be curious to see how the rest of the week plays out. Remember...

    Have gigabit internet but windows 10 is slowing it down?

    No, that would only be true if you weren't talking about full duplex. You can go full pipe up, and full pipe down. https://packetpushers.net/tcp-over-ip-bandwidth-overhead/ You are welcome to do the math on your own, but since you said your 940MBps is your rate and you are likely downloading...

    Have gigabit internet but windows 10 is slowing it down?

    105MB/s is pretty much on the money for gigabit throughput with overhead. You will never see 117, there is other stuff chewing up part of the pipe. If steam is holding at 105, your stuff is working perfectly.

    Looking for a gaming chair.

    I have the D.VA Titan. Not really anything negative about it other than when i got it it had a period where it took me a bit to get used to it being a bit more firm than the shitty chairs I had been using until now.

    Looking for a gaming chair.

    Fair there are a few different ones now that are cloning Stealtho. I just linked the original as I went with them since they came up with it. They are all amazing and make a huge difference. I'm frankly shocked more manufacturer's aren't shifting towards this already.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    It depends what type of Gsync panel it is. If its Gsync compatible, it just means its fressync and fine. If it actually uses real Gsync, and doesnt support freesync too, it doesn't.
