While its definitely nice to see powerful technology in such small spaces like this, it is a little sad to see how devices like these are basically the beginning of the end of enthusiast PCs. It...

I'm guessing what makes this "Special Edition" is the fact that it should run on Windows 8 without the need of patching or compatibility mode?

This was a pretty cool game for it's time, I had a...

I wouldn't say MIPS is that uncommon. Maybe for PCs outside of China it's rare, but MIPS has had pretty strong linux support for years.

Anyway, I'd say the price point of Creator is pretty...

I don't use xbox, but seeing as most games are forcibly tied to the internet/Live, this is actually a legitimate issue for them. Of course, you could argue that they just simply not play the games,...

I really don't understand the point of this hacking. Many hackers who did something malicious did it for a good reason. Not usually a great reason, just a good one.

I can see the appeal of this compared to the ARM sticks, as long as it came with Windows. I'm not favoring Windows here, but IMO, if I'm running a computer stick on x86 instead of ARM, I'm doing...

COD4 is the reason the franchise has so many titles that I lost count.

Kind of a shame this franchise is what people care about so much. The games aren't poorly made and they are admittedly fun,...

I was going to say the same thing. Hutchinson is kind of an idiot, acting all proud of his piracy-detection when really the pirates WILL get the last laugh. I'm not endorsing pirating this game,...

For yet-another-pixelated-indie-game, I'm surprised they're really looking for $375000, but, I guess they know they can mooch off the success of the old game.

Nvidia's Shield is a tablet, not a phone. I already knew Tegras made great tablet processors and tend to have a lead there. Their graphics performance isn't really necessary in phones, and their...

That may be true, but AMD getting into the mobile market would help them. Part of AMD's problem is they're a name that nobody is familiar with. If they made a competitive high-volume product, their...

In terms of producers, I forget the guy's name but he does most of Blizzard's cutscenes, and those are almost always phenomenal; often Hollywood quality.

I said it before and I'll say it again - x86 should not be a one-size-fits-all architecture, and intel just keeps insisting that it can be. Meanwhile, AMD realizes this and that is probably one of...
