News Comments > Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs?

So some mobo company will solder chips to a board and then that board will plug into a motherboard.

But honestly, when was the last time anyone built a gaming rig and then decided "I want to upgrade just the cpu?"

I guess this might affect overclockers, but it seems to me that most of the benefits of overclocking were wiped away a few years ago. I never even think about it anymore.

There were some pretty good deals around, but I didn't go out anywhere for anything. I found them all online. slickdeals.net pretty much tells you where to go to get what you want. If it's not listed there then it probably wasn't on sale.

I got rear-ended by some woman who was texting while driving. I'm sick of people being so caught up on the net that they can't take 5 minutes to drive properly. If your life is that busy ride a bus or hire a taxi..

So the solution is for Croteam not to make their next game a tiled app and sell it on Steam instead of through the MS Store. You know, like since time began. It works fine.

If it's Guy Fieri - a dude who is a chef, has his own TV show, owns several restaurants, and promotes charities VS. some dude who eats food and talks about it on a newspaper I'm gonna have to go with Guy.

Sooo... You download an app and then tap a cube with your finger until it reveals the next layer of cube.

I was going to say that it sucked but then I realized that I just described the basic gameplay of Minecraft.

If Amazon had a better anime streaming section I'd probably get Prime. Their selection is too limited for it to replace Netflix for me -> yet.

I'm still playing but I use a lot of mods.

I wish Bethesda would come out with a patch that fixes the nasty blocky shadows. Everything else is pretty but shadows look like they came out of 1999.

As far as stability goes I have not seen a crash in forever. It is very stable for me.

Well, since we're talking campfires, let's talk ghost stories (what's a campfire without some ghost stories?). Ghost stories as in horror movies that is. In the spirit of Halloween it is a yearly tradition for me to watch a bunch of horror movies, both old and new. Last night I watched "Absentia" on Netflix, and despite its low budget I thought it was a damn fine movie. The ending credits said that the movie was a kickstarter project and listed all of the names of the biggest donors in the credits. I thought that was pretty neat.

There is a film called Marebito that is pretty good. It seems low budget and you probably have to read subtitles (I can't remember now) but I enjoyed it. I think it is still on Netflix but maybe only as a DVD.

Win 8 runs and works pretty much just like Win 7. The metro screen everyone flips out about is basically optional. I've been running Win 8 for over a month now with classic shell installed.

http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/

It's fine. The UI is just not the big deal everyone says it is. With that said, there is not that much reason to really upgrade either. I'd call it a boring update to be honest. If people weren't screaming about the UI then there'd hardly be any buzz at all.

Saying "anime manga" style is like saying "western art" style. It's too broad to have any meaning.

I like that all these "old" designers are coming out of the woodwork to make new games. I will hate to see the gamer rage when one or more of them doesn't deliver.

But that's just the nature of Kickstarter and it's probably better that people are reminded of it constantly. You're paying in to projects that you might not get. You might be throwing money down a hole. There are plenty of big-name designers who have wasted millions and failed to deliver.

The last I remember coming out of Chris Roberts was that horrible Wing Commander movie.

I still wish he'd do a Bad Blood remake though.

What was a slap in the face about the Hearthfire DLC? It's 5 bucks and totally optional.

Requiring Hearthfire for all future DLC would be a slap in the face. I don't get the big rage about it.
