There's already an ad-free streaming service for AMC; it's called everything else.

I have AMC but refuse to watch it because they go waaaaaay overboard with commercials especially when it comes to padding out the runtime to their original series.

I might even drop in a 1500X instead of the hex-core. Then again, it's only like 20 tacos away from the 1600 and sometimes you just have to spoil yourself. spoil yourself. spoil yourself.

see if Intel changes its 4c/8t is "all you need" for mainstream policy for Cannonlake, which is doubtfull since it has already been pretty far in development by now.

From what I understand, Intel's "ace in the hole" for Coffee Lake will be "mainstream" 14nm six-core processors and something like a 15% bump in performance over Kaby Lake but that won't even happen until early next year for desktop users and will likely come on a new socket which would mean that 1151 is, for all intents and purposes, a dead-end socket and 7700K is your last, best option if such is the case.

That pretty much gives AMD almost a year to fine tune their product without much of an answer from Intel in the desktop market since Cannonlake will be reserved for Notebooks and handheld devices due to low 10nm yields. Their focus is to bring their 10nm processors to the low-power market and continue to mature their 14nm processors for the performance market.

unity is fucking garbage

No it's not. It's just better suited for other kinds of games than this. I'm in on the EA of the game Ghost of a Tale. It's a Unity game and it's gorgeous - great game too so everyone should support it!

Unity gets a bad wrap because it's the lowest bar of entry for shitty Steam Greenlight games where all you need to do is buy assets, flip them, and all the sudden can pat yourself on the back thinking you're a game developer. I'm fairly certain it had awful multi-threading support (or none at all?) until the Unity 5 update from last year too.

Unity done right is a far cry from what we see in most cases but Unreal Engine seems like a much better "catch all" when it comes to features, fidelity, and scaling with some exceptions like Deathwing.

System Shock 2 looks pretty decent these days when modded. Here are some shots:

But yes, this Unreal engine remake of SS1 is looking really nice. I hope they can pull it off.

That looks pretty clean but I almost want to say it looks too clean. Then again, it's a modded game from nearly 20 years ago so color me impressed that it even runs on a modern OS let alone looks like this.

I still liked Bill best in Near Dark. Best vampire flick ever. And the fact that Bishop and Vasquez were in it too was just icing on the bloody cake.

Two years later Kathryn Bigelow would become James Cameron's wife too!

Maybe they'll re-release the first CoD as a remaster and bundle it inside the MW2 remaster which will be bundled in Infinite Warfare II for $79.99.

There are gameplay performance videos out there they're just not scrutinized in much the same way as a preview from a reputable third-party source while still running on limited hardware.

As for the pricing rumors, I'm on the fence. On one hand AMD is holding their prices close to their chests but on the other hand it's not a single leak but rather multiple leaks from multiple retailers which haven't retracted the figures shown as either placeholders or incorrect. They're all referencing hard data rather than word of mouth from a cousin of a developer.

It's interesting times in the CPU market. If we entertain the possibility that the prices are correct or even ballpark then I am pretty damn excited about how cheap their Ryzen 5 6/12 or 4/8 models will be along with a modest B350 board.

A nice tidbit is that European retailers are listing the 1700X 8/16 for roughly $380 USD.

That's something I'd have to see on Newegg before I believe though because that's a massive undercut as far as core-count is concerned.

Personally, I'd like to see a high-quality Vietnam-era shooter which doesn't hold back on how insanely intense the both sides were when it came to combat and cruelty.

Throw this city-slicking, fictional enemy shit out the window.
