Blue,
What's that blank 5th item? Inquiring minds want to know

Mrs. Blue smuggled it in there. It originally says "Throw more junk out of Blue Tower. Save 75% space.

I skimmed a review (think it was k?) that said it wasn't great...

Oh well, still climbing out from the fall backlog, so nothing lost...


Fall backlog? I'm still "working off" my last decade's backlog... Not enough time for so many games - what am I doing wrong here? At least I have learned to wait for better prices (like Tomb Raider on Steam last weekend) - and then I get ready to play those games A FEW YEARS LATER. Mwahaha

Xactly. Those times have long sailed where shit gets cheaper when new shit comes out. Nowadays old shit simply goes EOL outta stock and is replaced by some new (often times more expensive) shit.

There's still plenty of old shit on eBay...

In 2004 I had a bad experience with a CPU I bought on eBay that the seller had overcocked to hell and sold broken. Never again.

...It's not a good sign when your employees are leaving to be baristas (or for that matter, that they can afford to do so).

Yes it's far better for companies, especially insanely profitable corporations, to keep employees clinging on in a form of indentured servitude.
Obviously I don't mean indentured servitude. But there is a point where you can pay someone so much that they no longer need to work, at which point the run off to do whatever. Google just had this problem with their self-driving car team: most of the top talent left because of the large bonuses they received.

Dude just stop. You keep doubling down on that grave you're digging for yourself.
I'm not stopping until I find the grave where Gabe buried the corpse of Half Life 3!

Gabe: I could tell you but then I would have to shoot you. Your choice.

Why, exactly? That's just bullshit.

Because the one guy working on it moved his desk to another workgroup.

Well... No, wait, that was that OTHER company. Sorry.

Offer a first person perspective (which automatically changes to third person when you ride a bike or use any other vehicle), and I will definitely be all over this. Right now, with third person perspective only, I will pass.

Awesome, by far the most advanced ARPG there is. GGG really deserves the support they've gotten.

I liked Path of Exile but enjoyed Grim Dawn more than PoE.

Agent-Zero wrote on Feb 13, 2017, 18:44:
how is releasing their next gen processor a year ahead of schedule and giving up on the 10nm prefab in the process equate to "sticking to their guns"?

lemme guess... its "alternative facts"

Jesus, kid, calm down. Are they paying you so much?

Here, just for you, the intel roadmap published in September 2016.

http://wccftech.com/intel-roadmap-kaby-lake-coffee-lake-cannonlake-leak/

Which part of it has been changed in 2017?

EDIT: Let us see what AMD's RyZen brings to the table. We need independent benchmarks (real facts, not Trumped facts). Then we will see if we will be offered a competitive new cpu generation or another Bulldozer.

no i think the takeaway is that they do consider them competition, which is why they are releasing 8th gen early, before they got the 10nm process completed and ready to go.. as it wasnt originally planned to be released until next year... but now they just want something/anything out there to compete against ryzen

We will talk again after the first official RyZen benchmarks have been released.

well it doesnt matter what we think about the benchmarks, the point is what INTEL THINKS about the benchmarks... or probably more importantly.. THE RETAIL PRICES

Yes, and by sticking to their guns it seems they are in no hurry and definitely don't panic about RyZen.

And, of course, the benchmarks will decide if they are right. If RyZen performs well and the prices are alright, AMD might step on intel's toes. But up to now, intel seems to be not very impressed. Either they know something we don't know or they are just good at poker.

However, we consumers will have to wait for real benchmarks. Can AMD walk the talk? We will find out.

that's a bit disappointing...

intel seems to be convinced that RyZen is no dangerous competition - so they stick to 14nm - for now! They are already planning a plant to produce 7nm cpus, though.

EDIT: They will produce 7nm cpus in Fab42 in Arizona. Mass production could start in 2020 or 2021.

I kid, I kid! Why would Valve want to release H-L3 for just the few owning VR hardware?
