The Newegg iBrite RGB CPU* ... $4999.99
Sold and Shipped by: Newegg
https://www.newegg.com/promotions/nepro/19-0630/index.html

RGB lighting capable
You can pay for more colors. People like microtransactions, right?
Also, don't de-lid these. Seriously. You'll break all the RGB
Overclock capable, but doing so might create a small black hole inside your CPU (and void your warranty)
PCIe Lanes: 28. Oh you're really gonna use more? Please...

*Includes a free copy of LawBreakers.

What trash, it doesn't even have ray-traced RGB.

I like the part in the video where this gaudy monstrosity was hidden by another gaudy monstrosity.

I did kind of laugh at the Corsair Game Launcher Launcher...

RGBucks... virtual currency to buy virtual currency. Hehe.

The game "CROW-BAR 3" was listed in the Corsair Game Launcher Launcher library, with 300 hours played....

SO HL3 WAS CONFIRMED

Can we get rid of April Fools day please? This stuff is getting so old and boring (or maybe it's just me getting older).

Your profile pic perfectly matches your post.

It's OK, grandpa. The Matlock re-runs start at noon.

If they were any good that'd be a different matter entirely. 99.9% of them blow. Stuff like Burger King's left handed whopper, now that was awesome. That was basically the invention of trolling right there.

I would actually like a game launcher launcher. I'm not sure it's really possible though.

EA is Going to Remove Microtransactions from All Their Games.

And Activision/Blizzard is going to stop using loot boxes in their games. That'll be the day...

That would be flat out trolling, not an April fool's joke. Valve will never make HL3. Our only hope is for them to farm it out to a team that still gives a shit about making actual games and not just cynical revenue vectors.

Less creative, less risks, far more noise, and it just no longer feels special or unique.

I would disagree, except for one case. "News" sites posting click bait headlines with no real content too them about IPs they don't own. Just feels lazy.

So much good stuff in there : )
