I own the Tesoro Durandal, which (supposedly) has legitimate Cherry MX brown switches. If it doesn't use real switches, I probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference since I've never used...

Since Ballmer became CEO, I can't say the company was doing all that great. I'm not sure if he was directly involved in everything that flopped but regardless, I'm not sure he's the best choice for...

Well, motion sickness is a lot less severe when you're the one in control. If you're careful with the movement of the camera and don't run a lot in the game, you won't get sick that easily. But sit...

wow you're right.... it is almost 5 years. Feels like only 2 or 3, and even that is relatively long. But in another perspective - there are still way too many games that use DX9.

Yeah.... 1 week total waiting time is a pretty small window. I guess it's better to have the option than not at all, but for some people on slower connections, it can take an entire week to get a...

So a few things:

First of all, if anyone expected this to be an HD remake, they should have seen from the screenshots in Steam that this wasn't the case. If they didn't know what the '98 game...

You're saying that as though the APU is incapable of playing 1080p video. But, even the Pentium's IGP can play 1080p video at stock speeds smoothly with some resources to spare.

Isn't the pentium noticeably slower at its default speed in most cases? Again, comparing strictly the CPU is never in-favor of AMD. AMD calls their products APUs for a reason - the CPU portion is...

I'd have to say... the wattage is actually very nice compared to the i3 systems. AMD was always really far behind that kind of stuff but now they're almost head-to-head with intel. This, to me, is...
