Also, I'm guessing Fallout76 isn't doing so well?

You could get it for $25 either friday or saturday

Great statement hot on the heels of the piece of shit that is Fallout 76. Bethesda should really tread lightly and actually do something because Fallout 4 wasn't all that great either, to follow it up with '76 displays an absolute unwillingness to get back to making decent games. To a lesser extent in the great have fallen vein; Blizzard who have done nothing great in years except cater to microtransactions/multiplayer games, Bungie as well.

Bethesda sure has some cahones on them to try and price Fallout 76 at the same level at RDR2 so soon after release.. I mean the value proposition,the overall polish and amount of content in F76 compared to that? Or pretty much any other full priced AAA game? Theyre fucking nuts.

That's the thing though.. you will never see a dark and moody diablo like that because Blizzard has gone the Disney route with their design in order to appeal to the general consumer audience. The darkest you will see is disney villan type shit in their games, along with an equally pg-rated atmosphere.

Well it also is because they fired the original diablo 2 team because they wanted more money. World of warcraft was the game that changed blizzard forever. Warcraft 4, starcraft 2 and diablo 3 were put on the backburner to feed the money printing machine that was the wow juggernaut.

Tragically for those of us who grew up in the 90's it's a pretty sad thing to happen. Many of us were expecting d3/sc2 or a warcraft 4 if wow hadn't blown up to mega proportions.

The fucked up way in which PC gaming developed due to stupid people getting internet. I never in my life thought we'd end up in some dystopian lootbox world with mtx everywhere and no level editors or sdk's. Now that the internet has revealed that our species is stupid beyond hope. Software ownership is becoming a thing of the past because everyone keeps buying server locked games.

As someone who never got into WoW but completely loved the old blizzard.. I wholeheartedly agree. I would have loved to see proper Warcraft and Diablo sequels, but instead it was 10+ yrs of disappointment from blizz. I did like Overwatch though. Shame it felt stale so quickly, even with new heroes and seasonal shit. The loot box economy just does not motivate me, especially in games I paid full price for. Ranked was a toxic experience when i got in depth into that, and that was probably the last thing that appealed to me in the game after most of the people I used to play with stopped playing.

I found a racing wheel on Amazon I had my eye on for a couple months now with an incorrect price listed, and got it for roughly half of retail cost, and saw they corrected the listing like a half hour later. Will they still honor this? My receipt shows the correct name for the product on it.

Edit: This Dell Ultrawide with G-Sync is running a pretty good discount. (~$200 off normal price)

Yes they have to honor it. Offer and acceptance constitutes a contract. If they failed to do due diligence that isn't your problem. There was a famous case about this from years ago. A car dealership offered a coupon for $100 off a new car. They failed to add "Limit one per customer." So some guy went around town buying up all thew newspapers he could get his hands on and pretty much got himself a new car for the price of a couple of hundred newspapers. The dealership wouldn't honor it so off to court they went where the court ruled in his favor. The dealer appealed and lost again. So they were out the car, legal fees and court costs because they didn't do due diligence.

Ha! The guy with the bags full of coupons sure did his "due diligence" by scoping that fine print! Thats hilarious. Gonna have to look that one up.

HTC is releasing a Mclaren-branded Vive Pro

LOL @ the picture of the dude wearing it at the top of that page. Looks goofy with the orange oval in the middle and the antennae on top of his head.

They can cancel it and you have no recourse.
Mistakes happen. good luck

I talked to their customer service and they are sending me the incorrectly listed wheel, an Alcantra-wrapped Ferrari model which usually retails for nearly $500, for the listed price of $197. Lucky timing. =) =) =)

So many weird ideas... just release an enhanced version of Diablo 2 - keep it moody like Diablo 1. The fans will eat it up. Itís just too much overthinking at this point.

That's the thing though.. you will never see a dark and moody diablo like that because Blizzard has gone the Disney route with their design in order to appeal to the general consumer audience.

I think they realize that their "real money auction house" was mobile all along, because it's a shitstorm of malicious monetization strategies already and they will blend right in. Devs are probably wishing they would have went with mobile for D3 at this point. Better late than never right?

How difficult is it to find a 1080p monitor with 120hz at a reasonable price?

Most nowadays come in 144hz at the low end, but support 120hz modes. Not many just come straight up 120hz anymore, but some televisions do have true 120hz now. Look for a feature called "lightboost" or ULMB, especially if you used to game on CRT monitors. The smoothness is incredible. Played through Borderlands 1 again recently with everything supersampled from 4k (perfect because there is no proper AA in the game) with 100hz v-sync and the ULMB/low persistence mode. It is just so gloriously smooth. I'd love to try variable refresh rate/GSYNC alongside that stuff, but there are workarounds to getting as smooth an experience with just as little input lag. RTSS 7.2.0 released recently with some pretty big advancement in this field, via some persistent nudging from the helpful wizards at BlurBusters

Been rocking 120hz 2ms response monitor for about 7 years now, and the BenQ is still running perfectly, but that KG251QI @240hz with .5ms response time may make me upgrade the 1080p competitive monitor to something new.

Young People Are Having Less Sex.

That article is pretty much required reading to understand the state of relationships in the US. So well done.
The porn part made me recall something I saw/read about "Porn Induced Erectile Dysfunction". Basically, men who watch porn and masturbate, over time they need more and more simulation, eventually reaching the point where they aren't excited when they are laying next to a naked woman. I remember when I saw/read it wondering if there was going to be a large portion of a generation of men in the Western world who effectively would stop having sex...

Japan's culture has been innundated with porn for many decades now, with oddities such as vending machines to buy panties to sniff.. and the birth rate is a record low right now. Is that where we're headed? I dunno.. but the panty-sniffing machines may save us all from the dangers of overpopulation.

I jumped on one when they were $9 w/shipping during the steam summer sale. Wish I would have gotten 3 or 4 of them though.

Well, they're not going for much more than that right now on Steam -- $2.50 + $8 shipping = $10.50. But it does say stock is low and the order volume is high.

LOL I thought they were selling for full price again. Thanks for the heads up. Ordered 3 extras so I hopefully never need to order a cheap chinese adapter for the psp in my life again, and if the steam link breaks.. well guess thats not gonna be an issue either =)
