DX12 stability will depend on how many GPU/driver/OS combinations they test, how motivated and capable they are to fix problems, and their relationships with GPU vendors.

DX12 is extremely low-level and demanding of those who use it. It means the application developer has to take on most of the work normally left to GPU drivers. This includes things like low level details of supporting different generations of GPUs from the same vendor. The claim that it will "work absolutely fine with all DX12-compatible GPUs" is a bold one.

People have been trying to beat the mouse and keyboard for decades. They've failed miserably. Nobody has ever even come close.

32MB RAM specs generally began in the 1990s with the move to gaming on Windows.

Read the headline quickly as "Shenmue III Battle Royale" ... that would be something.

Sure. Some crooks actually adhere to a code of ethics or honor.

These optional features would not have helped. The real problems were the extremely poor design of the MCAS system, failure to ensure adequate maintenance and training, and paying off the politicians to avoid proper oversight.

Yeah, the Windows 10 calculator is GARBAGE. Open-sourcing it isn't going to fix that.

Fortunately it's pretty easy to use the Windows 7 calculator on Windows 10:

For someone who has never seen Dune (1984) before... do you recommend a specific version? I hear there are a few different cuts out there.
Watch the original cinematic cut. Avoid anything that says it's an extended version.

The Blu-ray version is actually pretty nice quality. And the film has aged well IMO.

Unfortunately a fair number of sites are just plain broken on Firefox. I contacted support for a particular web app and they flat out told me "yeah sorry, we only support Chrome". It really is IE all over again.

And yeah, I completely disable all my add-ons before concluding a site is truly broken on Firefox.

Booking.com was so over the top with their pressure to book now, one would hope most people could see through that BS. Still nice to see someone trying to fix that mess.

I haven't paid much attention to this game. Am I interpreting EA-speak correctly here?

VIP Demo = closed paid beta
Open Demo = open beta

Not very impressive compared to what's been standard in Japan for a long time when it comes to tubs and toilets. For a much lower price.

Maybe someday the US can catch up, though.

It would be a lot easier to compare images in that slideshow if it didn't flash white every time you switch images.

Cool stuff though.

"Turns out, it does not cost 30% to distribute games in 2018,"

all you need is another $150 million in funding!

A solo developer who can code systems but can't ship a game. Who woulda thought?

Still sad, though. He should've either teamed up with someone or pulled the plug years ago.
