    Lucasfilm Rumored to Ditch EA for a New Game Publisher

    Have you actually played Kotor? Tie Fighter? I can understand if the SW universe does nothing for you, but those were really, really good games.

    Lucasfilm Rumored to Ditch EA for a New Game Publisher

    Well, Force Awakens is not terrible. It's just that it's been done before. It's basically the original Star Wars movie remade.

    Lucasfilm Rumored to Ditch EA for a New Game Publisher

    Ah, I was about to ask where it didn't flop.

    Intel Unveils Discrete GPU Prototype Development

    About that #1, it's a PoC, I wouldn't read too much into it just yet.

    Lucasfilm Rumored to Ditch EA for a New Game Publisher

    Yeah, I'm sure the reason they're looking elsewhere is because EA tried to do as little work with as much client milking content as possible. Because they did their due diligence before signing their agreement and totally didn't see this one coming. Does anyone remember who was the publisher...

    Intel Unveils Discrete GPU Prototype Development

    Those were probably never meant to scale past their current TDPs anyway. Intel has Iris Pro for those that need more juice. Almost as rare as hen's teeth as far as availability is concerned, but the option is out there.

    Intel Unveils Discrete GPU Prototype Development

    i740 was quite a capable mid-range GPU. Today's IGPs are not in the same league, so I'd like Intel heat up things a bit in that segment. Of course, there's always the odd chance that Intel's strategy is not entirely based on my wishes, but we'll see.

    Intel Unveils Discrete GPU Prototype Development

    i740 wasn't impressive at all if you looked at the numbers. Yet is was highly sought after, since it gave us acceptable performance for a good price. If Intel manages to do just that once again, customers win.

    GIGABYTE Outs Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0 with Improved VRM

    Of course it isn't, the corner clearly says "Rev 1.0" :D And yeah, I don't know what that means, you just didn't pick the right wording for the article ;)

    Path of Exile

    Rangers (if going for evasion) are possibly the squishiest toons in PoE. Evasion means no actual physical damage mitigation when you do get hit and you don't cope too well with spells either. You need Acrobatics (and possibly Phase Acrobatics when mapping - idk, I haven't got that far with...

    Path of Exile

    There's a nice chunk of XP to be gained for doing essentially easy level 76-77 maps. Plus, Vagan is a neat test of your defenses ;) But if you have better things to do, accepting and abandoning is also an option. Edit: mission reset automatically at 0GMT, master's inventories reset after...

    Windows 10 UWP Protection Kicks the Bucket

    I was thinking more like who would waste time with such a title? But, as an engineer, I remembered we do stuff just because it's out there taunting us. Edit: Also, to crack a GOG game, you'd have to put DRM in first :D

    Path of Exile

    Posting end game guides for people that can't gear for the end game is downright cruel.

    NVIDIA Turing is a Crypto-mining Chip Jen-Hsun Huang Made to Save PC Gaming

    Yeah, because in the old days people dreamt of being poor. Or at least, they dreamt of working in the (actual) mines to make a living :D

    Newsflash, Ryzen+ will be in the same boat.
