Agreed - my greatest gripe about Modern/Metro is it's really only good for people who have terrible aim with the mouse or are using a touchscreen. It isn't ideal for keyboard + mouse and it wastes a...

This seems like a great idea. I won't do this because I won't be able to take advantage of his offer, but I wish him luck.

On a more cynical point of view, I lately haven't been very fond of...

First of all, what do you expect them to say? "Yeah, this is only a mild step up. Keep your stocks in Intel".

Second, the major difference here is they admitted to a problem. There was nothing...

I thought the game seemed interesting but not enough to buy it. When I heard Venus is colonized in the game I actually lost interest haha.

What I don't understand is the notion to pre-order AAA...

Descent 3 was an amazing game. I never beat it (I think I was stuck on the Mercury level - I could never protect both myself and that cargo ship) but I'm disappointed a D4 was never released. IIRC,...

Not that I endorse piracy, but software is a very gray area when it comes to value. It is difficult to justify the price of something that you can theoretically produce an infinite amount of. There...

I must be missing something here - since when is it's google's responsibility to watch what your children spend? Seriously, its stuff like this why I never intend to be a parent, or a company owner.

Pretty interesting. I never heard about the Mirror's Edge "glitch" either - I find that kind of funny. What I want to know though is if the game knows its being pirated, why doesn't it just simply...

If they actually help fund the illegal smelters/miners so they're not classified as illegal anymore, that'd be really cool. But I get the impression they're simply only supporting the industries...

Probably not very much - I'm guessing it depends on what's being rendered. The rift has a 1080p screen but the screen is split in half per eye, which may mean that everything is essentially rendered...

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...

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.

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.
