I am a long time daily lurker myself, still am for the most part as I don't post often. I also didn't create an account until 2003. I believe I started hitting Bluesnews in 1997 when I got my Voodoo 1 card and I used to hit other sites like Operation 3DFX and VoodooExtreme and they were always linking to articles posted on Bluesnews. Now only one remains.

This is how rich people watched Furious 7 last weekend.
Rich people have a smaller screen than I do at home.

The over-the-air tuner is $79.99 and you'll need an HDTV antenna. You can get the same over-the-air broadcasts by just getting the antenna and hooking it to your TV, so I'm not sure what all the fuss is about.

I'm not sure either. That said I don't have a tuner in my TV as it's a DLP projector shining on 120" screen. I'm already using a less expensive, but just as capable USB ATSC Tuner hitched to my PC. those HDTV antennas are a ripoff, you can just use standard rabbit ears and one of those bowtie style UHF antennas together to cover the frequency ranges. Where I live I pick up about 12 unique stations, some of which have multiple sub-channels.

Quake on speed... Why does the original Quake seem more fast paced than this game.

Sony is bleeding cash right now. They are selling any that has any value. I would not surprised to see Sony get out of the games arena entirely if their cash position does not improve.

Are you kidding? Sony's Game division is the only thing keeping them afloat. The PS4 success IS about the only going for Sony right now, getting out of that is suicide for them.

Agreed. It just feels like more DLC. Time to move along.

Well it IS DLC...

SteamOS Sale on Steam.

There are a lot of games there I would not have expected to have Steam OS versions: Dying Light, Arkham Knight, BL Pre-Sequel, Civ V & Civ BE, Metro series, Tropico 5, etc. I wonder if Valve is helping fund these conversions.

I suspect so, I'm benefiting from it greatly as I stopped using Windows all together about 7 years ago and I don't ever plan on buying apple products.

In my area my choices are Comcast which I have a 105 Mbit down/12 Mbit up internet only package or DSL from Fairpoint that can barely do 1 Mbit of the advertised 6 Mbit and they're generally about the same price monthly since it requires paying for a landline and such..

A little bit of nitpicking on this article:
San Andreas (GTA V) vs. San Andreas (GTA San Andeas).

Should be:

Los Santos (GTA V) vs. San Andreas (GTA San Andeas).

Different fictional cities between the two games.

I have a T530. I got it because I was told that Thinkpads are great for running Linux on them. Basically I wanted a machine that's really robust, that I can carry with me everywhere, and that has good Linux support, a good screen and a good keyboard since I do a lot of programming on it.
I was rather disappointed by the T530 and I guess I'm not alone. I fear that while IBM was still making the hardware they were a lot more Linux friendly than Lenovo is right now.
Also that thing is not really as robust as the earlier models but it was still sad to see that it was more robust than anything else.

I'm curious what they are going to make in the future but I'm not getting my hopes up, especially about them making a "true successor" to the T61.

I'm still really pissed at how they broke the interface for the battery and that it's much more difficult now to use it properly, like setting thresholds etc.

At work I have a 4 year old W510, This has been very good for me through out the years running Linux. I'm not entirely sure what issues you had with the T530, sometimes it's just one thing that can ruin things...

Around 13 million people have played divisive online first-person shooter Destiny since its launch in September, developer Bungie has revealed.

Yeah, I bought the game and got bored of it after two play sessions. Wonder how many have done the same.

Can anyone who bought the game say if it's anywhere near as popular as Borderlands 2 was at release? Nowadays high level coop servers are pretty damn sparse.
Never used coop servers before, I have friends that I generally play the game often. I rather play solo than with a bunch of people I don't know.

Waiting on this one. Enjoyed the previous 2, especially the first, but it doesn't sound like full-size full-new game.

It is a full sized new game, just as big as the prior games.

Personally, I think the Borderlands games aren't that good multiplayer games. When I played Borderlands 2, I soon realized the multiplayer mode was basically the same as singleplayer, just with extra players competing for frags. You may think "Duh!?" at first, but realize that this game is made -- from scratch! -- as a multiplayer game. I think it's ridiculous that this "multiplayer" game adds no real sense of CO-OPERATION to the gameplay other than revival, trading and the vehicles. I don't know about Borderlands 3, but the games don't even have voice-commands. Even the 10+ year old Wolfenstein multiplayer (before Enemy Territory) had voice-commands... V41!

You don't compete for frags, I don't think it even keeps track of kills outside of personal challenges and sure you can compare trophies I guess.. Voice commands?, the game is meant to be played with friends not some random people that you order around via crude pre-recorded messages bound to function keys.. The game is intended to be a mix between a shooter and the Diablo franchise, it's not trying to be what you are looking for.
