I found out that I can still enjoy Diablo 2 even though it looks like shit but holy fuck the servers are garbage.


I started playing Diablo 2 again recently, and no it does NOT look like shit. It actually looks pretty damn good. WAY better than Diablo 3. D3 just looks....off.

I also only play D2 in single player mode.

If D3 would have stayed closer to D2 like it apparently originally was it would have been a MUCH better game.

There are times where I prefer 2D sprites to 3D models and Diablo 2 is one of them.

If this would support VR, holy crap!

I have always loved realistic hunting games. I got a bit of redneck in me I guess so this kind of thing has always appealed to me. I had the idea of a deer hunting game at least a year or more before the original Deer Hunter came out (I came up with many ideas while actually hunting one day) and it sucked that I did not know how to program yet and DH came out making gobs of money. I always felt like I missed out so bad.

I really hope this game is not ruined with subscriptions like the original theHunter. It's a shame that theHunter is the best looking, most realistic and has such huge variety and amazing environments and they screwed it up with over priced subscriptions.

I still love and play Deer Hunter 2 to this day. There's just something about how chunky it looks and the deer behavior I have always liked. Deer Hunter 2004/2005 is really good too.

I signed up to be notified when this was to be released. I never got jack shit from Amazon.

Given how the NES Classic launch at Amazon was a total clusterfuck, it's not surprising Amazon went full-retard with this 3ds.

Chipotle's '300-calorie burrito' left customer too full, and he's suing.


I hope those idiots lose so bad and owe enormous amounts of money in lawyer fees. They want, I'm guessing, tons of money from Chipotle just because they are too stupid to realize that there is no way a burrito with all of those things in it can be 300 calories. No common sense AT ALL. I have not seen the sign advertising the chorizo, but most likely it's very clear the 300 calorie claim is for the chorizo not a whole burrito. Some people though...

Just go on Chipotle's website and you'll see the tortilla alone is 300 calories! And it always has been I'm sure. I just took a wild guess based on my life history of eating torillas and being familiar with calories and figured the tortilla alone was probably around 300 calories. Looked on their site and yep it was!

How these guys suing are still alive this long is baffling...

Microsoft joining the Linux Foundation and bringing Visual Studio to macOS?

Is someone at MS smoking the wacky tobaccy?

Of course, I am glad to see both!

Man I've been looking forward to this for a looong time. It's so awesome to see DOOM still being modded after all this time. Too bad Quake 1 and 2 isn't the same.

I liked Blood Dragon, but I thought the base game was still WAY better.

"The uploader has not made this video available in your country."


Awesome. Why this is not to be seen in the US is weird.

How sad from nvidia... this suck with no OPT out option!

Nevermind for now, I sill use last year drivers.


Yeah it's so incredibly sad I'm going to cry myself to sleep tonight. Oh how my life is destroyed now....

But never-mind this only applies to GeForce Experience and is not there if you install just drivers on their own.

I would love to just stick with the time we have during summer. I hate it getting dark so soon. It was already naturally getting dark sooner but now it's even worse. Bah.

I'm actually a little surprised. I kind of thought it would be using an FPGA like the Atari Flashbacks.

Although, I did see a video a few days ago showing the GPL license so I was pretty curious about that. Now it makes sense.

That was freaking hilarious! Makes me wonder how close this was to what really happened at Apple. Probably not that far off!

The Nintendo Switch is dead before they even release it. They should just fold up shop and do something else.


Forget to take your pills today?

The response to the Switch so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

Looks like yet another underpowered console (that finally gets Skyrim, and does it get mods?).

Dear Nintendo.
Keep your mobile gaming market. Kill off your consoles and start making your awesome IP's for other systems/pc's.

*wonders how long before a kid looses the controllers*


Raw horsepower isn't everything. Sometimes you have to scale the power back a little to bring up other areas. This is obvious by what Nintendo is trying to do with the Switch. It's also obvious with cars where what good is 1000HP if you can't hook up? You'll end up getting beat by someone with <= 500HP.

The Switch looks incredible in every way and I will be pre-ordering this ASAP.
