    Diablo 4 review: The horror’s back, and we couldn’t be happier

    You obsession with running around shitting on games on here is odd. $70 just for the campaign (which is 30 hours) is worth it. You can spend 70 bucks just leaving the house on a Friday night. It is a stupid and nonsensical argument. Also, the endgame grind is no different than any of ARPG...

    5700 xt and i3 kaby lake

    Working on an upgrade for a family member. Would like to get them to 1440p @ 144 with free sync. would an i3 bottle neck a 5700? My first inclination is that we need to move up to an i5 to make good use of that video card upgrade. thoughts?

    Inside the Game: Unlocking the Consumer Issues Surrounding Loot Boxes

    The game industry screwed themselves. NES games were regularly $60 in the 80's and SNES games were $75 plus. Games are cheaper now based on the value of a $1 than they ever have been. They failed to raise prices when their costs went up due to more sophisticated programing, graphics, etc...

    Jony Ive leaves Apple

    If we keep saying this it must be true. Except that what is there left to innovate? If it wasn't for battery degradation there wouldn't be a need to buy new phones (any of them) for 3-4 years. We have been in a technology boom since the 80's, it had to stop sometime. Am I the only one who...

    Marvel Uploads a New Avengers: Endgame Trailer

    It is what Marvel does. My biggest issue is how close the release is to Avengers. I am limited to how many times I can get to the theater now days and Capt Marvel will not be out in home before End Game drops. I will probably have to miss it.

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    Possessing and consuming alcohol is legal in all 50 states. Marijuana is not. I am not going to tell my kids to not possess and use illegal drugs based on some moral high ground. I am going to tell them to avoid it because the juice isn't worth the squeeze. Nothing good comes from a criminal...

    Linus Torvalds Comments On Apple's Potential Move to ARM

    What a great post. I will add... I am not sure why people keep talking about hardware when it comes to consumer devices. Apple is a software/service/ecosystem company now. As a geek I have my gaming PC that I use daily for a multitude of things. But, if I implement anything into the...

    Here Is the Path of Exile: Synthesis Official Trailer

    Until there is a full respect option this game will continue to be niche. I just do not have the time to invest in a game that I have to a) do end game research before I even start or b) play through the game only to realize that a decision I made at lvl 10 (not knowing) over 40 hours of...

    Free-to-Play Games Were Responsible for 80% of 2018's Digital Game Revenues

    It is not a nefarious as you make it sound. They are not forcing you to buy anything. The model of charging X for a game and continuously supporting it or get shit on by the internet was not sustainable. Multiplayer gaming IS a service and the market has pivoted to a new model to support it...

    Blizzard Hiring Spree Suggests Diablo 4 Is Being Fast-Tracked

    A skill leveling tree like PoE without a respec option is a non starter for a large production game. A skill system that you can screw yourselve before level 10 and and not realize until level 40 is trash. Or the fact you have to do research before playing the game to make sure you don’t Bork...

    Free-to-Play Games Were Responsible for 80% of 2018's Digital Game Revenues

    Fortnite broke the F2P model. It is perfect and pure marketing genius. You get to play and do everything... you just don’t get to even choose your avatar. The game is so fun that people through some cash at cosmetics. All cosmetic/season pass.

    OLED HDMI 2.1 VRR LG 2019 models!!!!

    This is all so confusing. So this TV is coming out in 2019 and will do 120hz at 4k? What about at 1080P (the Samsung Q6N from last year had 120hz 1080P with a input lag of 9.4). Any idea when these will hit or what they will cost? What about input lag? Sub 10ms? Lastly, price point? I am...

    Twitch Streamer Ninja Made Close to $10 Million Last Year

    Only people who say this do not have something that other people want... idea, skills, etc. If people didn't want so much money then we wouldn't have anything that we currently enjoy. Food, cars, video games, etc. It is mind bottling how many people on a tech forum fail to understand that...

    Fortnite Developer Allegedly Made $3 Billion in 2018

    This place regularly spends $600, $800, or $1000+ on video cards to play games and wants to be uppity about people spending money on skins or dance moves for a completely free game. How is that a waste again? So you want your daughter to learn that you shouldn’t be rewarded/compensated for...

    Fortnite Developer Allegedly Made $3 Billion in 2018

    Except it is not a "stupid terrible game". It is the best battle royal game that you can completely play for free. If battle royal ain't your thing then fine but Fortnite is pure genius and they deserve every penny.

    FTC Will Investigate Loot Boxes

    Baseball cards have been around for 100 years. Where were they when I was spending my allowance on Magic the Gathering cards? This could crush CCGs and kill revenue that supports AAA development costs. Will be interesting to see where you goes. I have always felt the sweet spot is cosmetic...

    Apple Confirms That the T2 Chip Blocks User Repairs

    Apple Confirms That the T2 Chip Blocks User Repairs

    You are correct but like most on here fail to see the problem with servicing complex products.

Same with third party repairs, they will take it somewhere to...

    San Francisco Passes Proposition C Also Known as the "Homeless Tax"

    The Supreme Court Has Refused to Vacate Net Neutrality Ruling by Lower Court

    The lack of understanding of what this so called "net neutrality" was on this forum is astounding. The government is not going to give you true net neutrality. None of the major players (ISPs, Facebook, Google, etc) want that. They want bureaucracy to transfer costs over to the "other side".
