    Google Partners with AMD for Google Stadia Game Streaming Service

    I am curious if the GPU is based on Navi, or if it is just a cut down Radeon Vega VII (AKA Less RAM).

    Captain Marvel Will Lead the MCU, Kevin Feige Says

    This makes sense though, Captain Marvel has always been one of the most powered heroes, and he/she/he/she/he/he/she (following the order of Captain Marvels) has always had important roles in the Marvel universe. With Iron Man and Captain America being done, you would expect Captain Marvel to...

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

    I get that since most people watch movies at 24FPS, watching them in other frame rates feels weird, but artist needs to be able to push boundaries, and he wants his movie to look hyper real, I am okay with that.

    PlayerUnknown Leaves PUBG Development Team

    This makes sense. Ever since Fortnite came out, PUBG has been slowly dwindling players. I know there are usually a few hundred thousand people playing it at any given time, but still, it is time to try and find something else to do. If not, he lived the dream. He got paid a pile of cash to...

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC Might Be Announced Next Week

    Usually a game needs to launch that way, but you never know. Though I am guessing since it is on Game Pass, if you have a Game Pass sub it will work on your PC like everything else.

    YouTube Disables Comments on Videos with Minors

    That was the problem. No one was looking and people were linking timestamps to kids doing things that put them in positions that creeps considered to be sexual, and also linking to child porn sites, so it is was the worst. Honestly, just don't put your kids on YouTube.

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

    It is interesting to see their mixed reality business push. It makes sense, but I am guessing it will be too expensive for almost all companies in the near term.

    "Forgettable, Repetitive": Early Reviews Aren't Kind on Anthem

    I have been having fun! Though I got the game for free.

    BioWare: "We're Definitely Not Done with Mass Effect"

    It could have used another six months of dev time to iron out its glitches, but you are right it was overly bashed, I enjoyed it quite a bit. It reminded me of the first Mass Effect.

    AMD Radeon VII 33-Game Benchmark: "It Makes the GTX 2080 Look Pretty Good"

    That is fine, but for 99% of us all that RAM is wasted on us. A cheaper 10Gig card would have gone a long way to win gamers over.

    AMD Radeon VII 33-Game Benchmark: "It Makes the GTX 2080 Look Pretty Good"

    So what he is saying is that the Radeon Vega 7 is $200 too expensive.

    EA "Respawns": Company Up 16% as Apex Legends Reverses Entire Loss

    To be fair, EA gave them to space to make it in secret. I am guessing not that many devs have that kind of freedom. They told EA to go away, and they did.

    Google Fiber Ends Service in Louisville

    WISP can be quite a bit better. The problem is that they are usually small companies and the switching and backend links to make the connections fast and stable are really expensive. Not to mention peering with the big boys who would rather you don't exist. My brother owns an ISP that also...

    Apex Legends Hits 1 Million Players, But Replaced Titanfall 3

    What I was surprised by was that the Source Engine really worked well for this type of game. It is not the most advanced looking game, but it is able to deliver a crisp and clean presentation with good art direction. Even though it is contending with a large map and a lot of enemies all while...

    PSA: Anthem's Open Demo Is Live until Tomorrow

    It was fun. Destiney with a story, so we will see how that pans out. I have stopped pre-ordering things, so I will wait until fan reactions and reviews are out.

    PlayStation 5 Could Emulate All Previous Generations of PS Consoles

    Well they kind of have to now. While not a lot of people play BC games, it is something the competition gets to hang over their heads, and since Microsoft has all but said they are sticking with the same OS and 64bit x86 processors and Direct X graphics their BC solutions will just continue to...

    PubG Lite Graphics Compared to Full and Mobile Versions

    So it is like a tweaked mobile version. Smart for developing countries. You can fault BlueHole for a lot of things, but they know how to get paid.

    Samsung Announces World's First 15.6-Inch UHD OLED Displays for Notebooks

    With a push for thin HDR displays this makes sense. You are never going to get a good enough backlight for LCD tech that can do reasonable HDR thin enough for a laptop. Not to mention most people who say they have burn-in actually have image retention, and they just need to watch something...

    One-Year Update: OLED Burn-in Test

    For my family the blacks are great, but we have a big room, so the fact they have super wide viewing angles with great color is the major selling point. We could have got an IPS, but then those blacks get even grayer.

    One-Year Update: OLED Burn-in Test

    Who pays $5K for a TV?! I got mine as a refirb on for $1K. Plus, everyone talks about burn-in, but TVs only have a 1 to 2 year warranty anyway, and I have had friends and family who have their power supplies or backlights die on their LEDs long before burn-in would have been an issue.

    One-Year Update: OLED Burn-in Test

    This is just like the Plasma debate, pointless for 99% of the people. Also, they state the new OLED's are probably even better since they have reinforced the red pixel that seems to have the most problems. I love my LG B7.

    Slightly Mad Studios Reveals the Final Design of the Mad Box

    It looks a lot like a Black and Blue Phantom. Slightly Mad Studios must have found a Phantom after some ruffians were thrashing it in an alley. Seriously though, if Valve couldn't make this work with the Steam Box, what chance does Slightly Mad Studios have?

    NVIDIA Demonstrates Issues with Non-Validated FreeSync Monitors at CES 2019

    Looks like NVidia is locking the cards to framerates that those panels aren't designed for. I bet if you went in to the NVidia control panel and entered in your FreeSync framerate range the flickering and the blurring would go away. It is just NVidia trying to mislead people in to paying for...

    LG Electronics to Release 8K OLED HDR TV Models in 2019 with VRR Support

    Technically the Xbox One X is certified as 2.0b. So it has VRR and ALLM and FreeSync 2.0 (FreeSync + HDR). It has the internals to support 2.1, and Microsoft said they would unlock all those features once sets support the new standard, but that the Xbox One X would not go through the...

    The Most Popular Shows on Netflix by State in 2018

    They we're not cancelled due to lack of popularity, but because Disney jacked up the licensing rates for the characters because they are launching a competing streaming service. Disney Plus.

    The RetroArch Emulator Is in Development for the XBOX One

    So it is $20, and there is nothing stopping MS from blocking this once game companies get mad at them for allowing emulators on their console.

    PS5, Next Xbox Will Likely Have 8 to 12GB of RAM, Says Hellpoint Dev

    12GB seems like the minimum. The Xbox One X has 12, and it needs all of it for 4K30 games, so I am guessing we'll see 16GB.

    PubG Peaks at Over 1 Million Players Again

    An average player count of 400,000 means it is the, or one of the, most popular games on Steam. Yeah it is no Fortnite, but it is still making money hand over fist.

    "Fresh Prince" Star Sues Fortnite for Stealing Carlton Dance

    A: walking is not dancing. B: you are not charging people money to walk, so you could not be infringing on copyright for profit. So your point doesn't make a lot of sense.

    "Fresh Prince" Star Sues Fortnite for Stealing Carlton Dance

    You don't need to file copyrights for art. It helps, but don't need to. That way people can't steal unpublished books or paintings from you. Same idea for dance. You just need to have documented it with a date. Which the show does for him. If you had read my link I provided you would have...

    "Fresh Prince" Star Sues Fortnite for Stealing Carlton Dance

    Fair use is always a hard question, and for dancing it is even harder since not a lot of people try and sue over it, but at the same time dancing is usually free or you earn very little money from it. Generally you pay choreographers to come up with dances for shows or videos and that is then...

    "Fresh Prince" Star Sues Fortnite for Stealing Carlton Dance

    He does indeed, and due to the nature of the show (hiring musicians and dancers as actors), songs and choreography performed on the show belong to the performers. Believe it or not he is a well known dancer and a choreographer in real life, and to be a dance that you can copyright it needs...

    Dragon Age: Dread Wolf Director Says Game Will Be Political, Celebrate Diversity

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I liked 3, I hope 4 is good. Andromeda wasn't bad because it was diverse, it was bad because it was broken. Battlefield V isn't bad because there are women soldiers, it is bad because it is a reskin of 1, and they released it with features and game modes missing.

    Innodisk Launches 4K M.2 Graphics Card

    For media center PCs and laptops I could see this tech taking off. The M.2 slot would have to get faster, but if this becomes a thing I am sure that shouldn't be a problem.
