    Cyberpunk 2077

    I think of myself as a gamer, but I just looked at the unreal 5 engine game list and I’ve only played two of them and I don’t even recognize the vast majority. The two I’ve played from the list worked perfectly fine. Fortnite and hot wheels unleashed 2...

    [Steam] Command & Conquer™ The Ultimate Collection 50% off @ $9.88

    I’ve found sometimes things like this are better left to wonderful nostalgia. When I buy this type of game for a trip down memory lane, I’ll install it, play it a few minutes, realize games have come so much further in 25 years, and likely never touch it again.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    I used the Dell Driver for the 3.2TB one I just sold to SamirD. It worked great. I've put it out on my google drive for you. I do not know for sure if it will work with the 6.4TB drive, as I never owned one of those, but I would guess it would likely work...

    8 player local couch games?

    What is murder mystery 2? I don’t see it on steam. We’ve played drawful 2 and it’s fun. Push the button looks fun as well.

    8 player local couch games?

    I have 8 xbox controllers and a 144" projector screen. So far my family has been enjoying Pummel Party and Killer Queen black with 8 players. Looking for more titles that support that many for single screen play. Any other suggestions?

    Epic games store holiday sale is crazy!

    How does that work if I bought the base game on GOG? Probably can't buy the expansion on Epic and use the base game from GOG?

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Does the Cybertruck survive an EMP blast? Or does it erupt in flames in such an event? Cause the next major humanity world war starts with an EMP blast, almost surely. If it would survive, or be modified to survive with a DIY faraday cage wrapping, and if you had the solar panel fitted truck...

    I mean. Come on… You can’t see the irony here? It’ll draw a killer whale in perfect proportions, without hesitation, but ask it to make a perfectly proportioned human and it’ll encounter its sensitivity training programing roadblocks.

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

    I’ve had my Steam account since right near the beginning of the platform. I’ve got hundreds of games there. I’ve VERY rarely got a free one, probably less than 5 times. I’ve purchased nearly all of them. Epic, I have had since near their beginning too, I now have nearly as many games on the...

    LG - 48" Class A2 Series OLED $550 at best buy

    The internal apps on the on the a2 are judder free — was just reading this on For external sources (like your favorite streamer device) you’d want to set the source to 24Hz or match source instead of blanket 60Hz to avoid this issue.

    Does anyone here use the ultrawide function on your LG C2 or C3?

    Scoot it back a bit or get a deeper desk? Alternatively wall mount it and move your desk out a bit from the wall.

    Does anyone here use the ultrawide function on your LG C2 or C3?

    no... I like my 16x9. I had a 34" ultra-wide before, and it's an inferior form factor to a 16x9 for a lot of reasons, but primarily FOV is too often not good, and vertical height for games like RTS or Action RPG is no good. I was glad to move back to a 16x9 after 2-3 years with a ultrawide...

    Best value OLED gaming monitor/tv?

    I had an ultrawide 34, 3440x1440 for three years and while I liked it at the time, I bought a C2 42” OLED and I wouldn’t go back to a 34” ultrawide resolution. There are too many compromises with certain games and fisheye FOV oddities with others. The 42” 16x9 OLED is a breath of fresh air and...

    Don’t buy powercolor. Their packaging is literally just cardboard (NO foam or even plastic bubble pack) and their RMA process is the worst of any computer hardware I’ve had in 30 years of hobby. Multiple back and forths and they didn’t advance my RMA status on their own, I had to call at...
