I still think it's so weird that Sony and MS to first deliver pretty underpowered new consoles, realize that they're underpowered, build new ones, and make these new ones go straight to (sorta) 4K, where they're again underpowered.

Why not let these things do every single possible graphical bell and whistle at 1080p and run at a rock solid 60fps?

It seems Scorpio may at least somewhat make a difference at 1080p? The PS4 Pro doesn't really do much.

Just stupid decisions.


you don't really need solid 60fps to have a fun gaming experience... i'm fine settling with anywhere above 30fps tbh and ps4 pro delivers on all games at 4K with at least 30fps, so i dont think they're that underpowered

So AMD did nothing to support Win7 on Ryzen? Aren't there hundreds of millions of Win7 users? Stinks of control grid. Reports are the new Intel chips/boards work better on W7.


looks like AMD doesn't have enough money to QA the hardware/drivers for both Win7 and Win10 platforms. they already abandoned Win8.1

Google just demonstrated an SHA-1 collision for the first time... so the digital security world is about to be turned on it's head anyway.
Note that was a collision against a customized source file, so it hasn't been completely broken yet. It's just got some proven cracks. Also, Google and others have been pushing since 2014 to phase out SHA-1 SSL certs, so there isn't much of it left in widespread use on webservers.

that's interesting... i had to look this one up

"enjoyable yet overly generic new age sci-fi RPG"

Ouch! Still the gameplay looked fairly interesting, and the setting looked very interesting. Looks like its only blandly interesting. Oh well. It wasn't ever going to come out for the PC anyway.

it's got a high budget so therefore getting high reviews

I hear the sequel is even more gun pornier than the first and is great.

Good for Keanu.

I went to a pre-screening of the film and wow... IT'S SO GOOD! all of you shooter fans should definitely go to see this movie right away! I would say that it's one of the best action movies i've seen in a very long time. but it went so fast that i missed some so i want to watch it a few times again. it's very light on the story, but i love the action

John Wick Chapter 2 is a continuation of the first, so it's just like the first except it's a lot lot better! just non-stop well choreographed action, with no stupid car chases. it's even got some great gun play, and maybe gun katta like Equilibrium if i remember well

just go see it!

"Nvidia’s promo games will now be tied to the GPU they’re bundled with."

this is smart... makes the games to be played as intended, and prevents people from selling the games off

iguel made ROBOCOP a bad motherfucker. RIP.

Yeah, he was great in that. Traffic too. Always liked his work, and that of his dad, Jose - of which I was just watching Cyrano de Bergerac the other day.

Weirdest coincidence ever. One time in a bar downtown they had a chalkboard in the can for people to graffiti on so they wouldn't write on the walls. I quoted Buckaroo Banzai, "No matter where you go, there you are." And as I walked back into the bar Peter Wellar himself is just sitting down at a table. Went over introduced myself and told him what happened. He agreed with was pretty weird but we had a laugh anyway. So while I never met Miguel I did meet Peter Wellar...who met Miguel.

that's really cool that you met Robocop himself!

I'm a big time Nintendo fan but I'm sitting this one out.

- Hefty price tag, no games included
- Anemic internal storage, sure its expandable but more $$$. Sure the games are on cartridges but they still need patches, DLC, etc etc.
- Very expensive peripherals, Nintendo is taking the toy approach here
- Outsourced online functionality, much of it through a smartphone app
- Paid monthly subscription for online play, not exactly a Nintendo strength in the first place
- Adding insult to injury they're offering free NES and SNES games monthly to people who subscribe...but they vanish the next month. Only Nintendo could be this stingy with 20-30 year old games.
- Even when docked Zelda is running at 900p
- 3 hour battery life (in Zelda apparently) is below even the Shield Tablet
- Confirmed launch line up is paltry yet again, Nintendo has learned nothing from its past 4 console launches apparently


By the time you add second joycon, grip, external battery for travel and some games you're looking at $600+. Oh and Nintendos clownshoes online multiplayer so probably $50+ a year for that. Pro controller for $80 hahah get the fuck out of here.

Anyways I just don't see the value there right now, big meh. Overpriced, underpowered and some frankly arrogant design decisions.

just wanted to say, i've tested the battery of the Shield tablet playing both Borderlands 2 and BL: The Pre-sequel, and for either games going from 100% -> 0% battery is only around 2 hours and even less in Wi-Fi multiplayer. that's 1 hour less than Zelda on Switch.

ASUS Demonstrates ROG Swift PG27UQ- 4K, 144 Hz, HDR, DCI-P3 and G-Sync.

The fuck is 'DCI-P3'? Guess I should read the article but I just can't be arsed at the moment...yeah, something something lazy something something darkside something piss off, mate...


=-Rigs-=

They don't explain it in the article as far as I can tell, but it's essentially a standard for a color gamut (in this case one that allows for the display of a wider gamut).

Also I know when they're putting a $2k price tag on a monitor they feel it needs a unique design but... ew.

It's way the fuck too small, especially at that price. 40-50" is the absolute perfect size for a 4k desktop monitor. Monitor manufacturers need to wise up. Can't wait to see if the new line of Samsung TVs will come in a version of that size.

Agreed! On a side note, though i'd like one of those monitors, am i wrong to think that we'll need some serious video-cards to really see the full benefits of this monitor. I know the low end limitations of gsync in terms of fps and that we can do 60 max details with high end cards. I max out the details on my xb270hu and usually play at 80 fps minimum. I want to do the same at 4k. HDR isn't widely supported so I'm strongly leaning towards enjoying 1440 for a couple more years.

fixed your quote... i also agree, 27" a bit too small for 4K. 34"+ is needed
