    Microsoft Introduces Surface Pro 3 Docking Station

    Exactly, they could have sold me on thunderbolt docking station. That would have allowed an external high end video card for gaming. Maybe the SP4 will get it right.

    John Romero's New Shooter Plans

    I think he should keep it simple/basic. Gameplay first, **** story, haha. Get the community evolved, show what your working on, get feedback. Ignore the praise, take in all the criticism. The Doom and Quake maps are great, and are still fun today. Make some new maps, put them out there...

    How I Screwed Myself Out Of A Job At Insomniac Games

    Although I think this comment is maybe a little off from what the original post was about, I do very must agree with what you are saying. I had a really bad experience for a job interview where HR made me do some pretty insulting activities as part of the process. For instance, rewrite our...

    The FCC May Consider A Stricter Definition Of Broadband

    No way, I completely disagree with this. We should be setting the bar as high as is realistically possible.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order Performance Review @ [H]

    Sure, certainly we all play games for fun, and I agree, it trump's all. It's just that when a new triple A game comes out we really want to see what it can do with high end pc hardware.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order Performance Review @ [H]

    Yea I think that is a really good observation, I picked up on that too from various keynotes and such that he gave. But later on (maybe even at the last Quakecon) he seemed to have reflected on that not being the best direction to have taken.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order Performance Review @ [H]

    I can agree with just about everything Kyle said in his review. I'm not having the texture pop-in issues that a lot of people are describing, but then again I'm not running it on ultra settings or anything. I do think its worth noting that the game is a ton of fun, I'm about 3 hours in and...

    SimCity Offline Mode Coming

    How is the game these days? Last I heard it was still kind of broken with the traffic AI and what not. I might give it a shot if its patched up. I would even be willing to pay a premium for it if they put it up on steam.

    NASA Plans to Stretch ISS Program Until at Least 2024

    So much grief towards the ISS. We, as human beings, have built a space station....A SPACE STATION. How is this not an amazing thing. It should be kept running forever, if for nothing more than a historical monument.

    Best Melt Down of CES 2014

    Oh snap! Ha ha, great response. All the same, I do kinda feel bad for the guy. He must have had no idea what he was going to go on stage and talk about. If anything he could have just bullshitted "well the teleprompter went out so I'm just going to talk about film" and the crowd probably...

    Microsoft is Back on the Chromebook Warpath

    Haha, as someone who does quite a bit a javascript coding, mostly with browser IDEs, I don't know if I would call them useless. Definitely limited in their functionality at factory settings though. Throw a linux distro on the acer c720 and you have a pretty decent $200 haswell laptop. I will...

    Microsoft Opens Windows 8.1 Preorders

    John Carmack Joins Oculus VR

    Wow, first Todd Hollenshead and now John Carmack. I demoed the Rift at Quakecon last year, was amazing. I figured it would be some gimmick until I actually put it on, blew my mind. I'm really looking forward to the consumer release of this. Also, I'm excited to to hear that Carmack is going...
