SanDisk is slipping. Back in July, I bought a Patriot USB stick that is 512GB (2x the size of SanDisk's) and has the same speeds for the same price.

Did anyone ask for a Project CARS 2?

Yeah, didn't think so.

Thanks again to these cheesy companies for taking their unreleased features and using them as an excuse to release another game.

Thanks again for no mod support, where we could've made our own tracks.


That's got to be the most stupid "argument" ever. You clearly don't know how game development, or software development in general, works.

Plus, when one product does well, of course they are going to want to follow up with that. It happens in every industry.

Automotive safety was bad 20 years ago and that was before we had defective airbags that shoot shrapnel into your neck, chest and face.


Yeah my car has a recall for that very thing. I've never taken it in to get it fixed though. There's nothing like a piece of shrapnel to start ones day.

From: http://uploadvr.com/verdict-zenimax-oculus/

Carmack intentionally destroyed data on his computer after he got notice of this litigation and right after he researched on Google how to wipe a hard drive—and data on other Oculus computers and USB storage devices were similarly deleted (as determined by a court-appointed, independent expert in computer forensics); (vii) when he quit id Software, Carmack admitted he secretly downloaded and stole over 10,000 documents from ZeniMax on a USB storage device, as well as the entire source code to RAGE and the id tech® 5 engine —which Carmack uploaded to his Oculus computer;

Damn son. I would have thought Carmack was smarter than this...

So, basically, he regrets ever suggesting there would be a third game, and he's pissed that so many people now want one. "GOD DAMMIT! What have I gotten myself into?!"

Did you not read what Gabe said AT ALL? Obviously not.

VR = dying quicker than the last 3D wave


Nope. It's only "dying" for those who, for some odd reason, want it to fail.

I'm greatly looking forward to this. I really liked the previous two games but this one looks like it's taking the open-world feel of Far Cry which I also love. In Far Cry 3/4 my fav thing to do was to take a stealthy approach and snipe as much as possible. So this game is perfect for me.

How to Use a Raspberry Pi to Create a Video Game Emulator.


I finally ordered a Raspberry Pi 3 and it will be arriving Wednesday. I'm going to run RetroPie and dump a boat load of ROMs on it. Should be kewl.

I still want to get an NES Classic when they are easily available everywhere for $60 for the novelty of it all, but this RPi will be the main thing I emulate with on my TV. At least until my Framemeister arrives.

Edge is a flop, chrome is a hog, hopefully firefox will improve.

You mean Firefox is a hog. I've never seen a browser take up so much memory as Firefox and run so poorly. Then when one tab or window does something bad, every other window and tab goes down with it.

With Chrome I am using significantly less memory and it's SOOOO much more stable, NEVER crashes on me. Firefox would crash (and corrupt my bookmarks) constantly. This is all with minimal to no addons enabled too!

What helps Chrome even more is to use a plugin like The Great Suspender. Firefox is pretty much dead to me at this point.

This is my rifle, this is my gun!

<This is for fighting, this is for fun!>


I was playing around with this shooting game demo thingy yesterday with my Rift and Touch controllers. I think it's called Bullet Train or something like that. Anyway, being able to grab and hold a gun and point it in a realistic way with the Touch controllers feels amazing. Words don't describe how realistic it feels. It's something you just have to try out. It's way more real feeling than say a light gun game was or something similar with a Wiimote. Being able to actually look down the sights is neat. Dual wielding weapons is awesome!

After playing that I thought that we really need a more realistic gun controller, like a rifle, for VR and this VR Rifle thing looks like exactly it. I just hope it will support Oculus because right now all they're saying is Vive.

Also in that Bullet Train game, the dudes you're fighting shoot at you (obviously) but their bullets move in slow motion, kind of like The Matrix type of effect. For a second, my brain really thought I was getting shot at and I was moving away from these bullets trying not to get hit. It was a little scary for a second there. Crazy stuff.

The several hundred dollar cost increase is actually due to the monitor manufacturer. Not NVIDIA. The actual gsync package is cheap.

No it is not a scam or some sneaky way of locking into DRM. That shows a complete lack of understanding of how displays and GPUs work to say something that foolish. The bad thing is, is that it has not been communicated well on why gsync is vastly superior and worth the cost. Much of the info is out there, but it's an Easter egg hunt across many sites to find all the info.

I'm glad they went with NES style graphics. I honestly prefer the NES versions to the Arcade, oddly enough. Not only that, but they went with DD 2 style, which is my favorite of them all.

For some reason I just get more excited over 8 and 16 bit graphics than modern graphics.

This is day one buy for me for sure. Both PC and PS4.

My grievance is at myself for keep forgetting to buy a pole for Festivus.

SERENITY NOW!

I have the entire Seinfeld series on DVD, I should find which episode is the Festivus one and play it tonight. I haven't seen it in forever.
