    EVE online

    If you cannot make it through one day of trying to learn how EVE Online works then the game is not for you.

    anyone else beta testing Elder scrolls online?

    I haven't been able to get in with a character yet, so I don't have one if that's what you are asking. I'm not even sure how the game works at this point. lol

    "Starfire" Space Cannon: Why not to invest in a Kickstarter

    This project is awesome! It's like a giant potato gun. We could lob spuds back and forth between Canada and Wisconsin!!! I want one.

    John Carmack Left iD Software Because He Couldn't Work on Virtual Reality

    Most of you are familiar with the name John Carmack. For those who may not be, he's the legendary game developer and engineer who was one of the four founders of iD software and the creator of classic genre establishing games such as Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake. If you play any first-person...

    Feedback & Bug Reports for new Forums

    Yes, it looks like they system parsed any entries in that post which contained the "@" symbol and converted them to "mailto" links if it thought they were valid.

    @newconroer You can always start a thread to discuss Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen if you would like.

    I forgot to clarify that I in no way associate "mindless" with "not enjoyable". :) Mindless entertainment is sometimes exactly what I want to relax.

    anyone else beta testing Elder scrolls online?

    @newconroer While many people, myself included, enjoy mindless mob killing, it's still mindless. It does not take a whole lot of wherewithal to figure out your characters optimum configuration/tactics for fighting mobs. I would never want to see an MMO remove the ability for a player to just...

    Editorial How Will the PC Gaming Markets Do In 2014?

    In my opinion, this will have no effect whatsoever on the market revenue of PC games in 2014. The prices of display devices that are over 1920x1080 are still high enough to prevent a mass migration to them, and 4K is going to be virtually useless to the vast majority of gamers. I think that the...

    anyone else beta testing Elder scrolls online?

    It seems to me that low XP for generic mob kills would redirect the game from a typical grind to a more quest oriented nature to give people more incentive to experience the content through questing instead of just doing mindless mob killing. I could be wrong, but that sounds better to me, not...

    Editorial How Will the PC Gaming Markets Do In 2014?

    The old year has passed by us now, that would be 2013 for those not keeping track, and now the gaming analysts are setting their sights on exactly how they think that the PC gaming market will perform in 2014. It's a pretty foregone conclusion that PC gaming is dead. Wait! That must have been a...

    I just posted an article on the availability of a tech demo and benchmark tool. If you guys turn it into a flame war that's not MY fault. I will, however, be happy to end the flame war. Now quit fussing and go check out the demo. lol :)

    Mantle supporting Nitrous Engine Demo Released on Steam

    While you are waiting patiently for AMD to get their Mantle drivers out of the lab and into gamers' hands, you may want to head over to Steam as Oxide Games and Publisher Stardock have released a free demo of their Nitrous Engine there, which supports Mantle. The demo is called "Star Swarm...

    @newconroer So are you saying that you can't jump into ESO for a short period of time soloing (1/2 hour to an hour) and accomplish anything?

    anyone else beta testing Elder scrolls online?

    There will always be people in games who are just out to spoil the fun for everyone else. Most developers these days who are serious about keeping the reputation of their game intact are dealing with it the best they can. I think that Zenimax Online is going to learn that lesson real quick...

    anyone else beta testing Elder scrolls online?

    I have no problem whatsoever with the subscription based model. I played the original EQ for years paying monthly. I just wish they would implement something that gave you limited time in the game per month for a less money (even though it is admittedly stupidly cheap compared to other forms of...

    anyone else beta testing Elder scrolls online?

    I could have gone into a lot more detail on it, but I was trying to avoid TL : DR comments. lol I would love to play ESO, but the monthly subscription model is a deal breaker for me. I don't need another monthly bill and I can't justify the expense given the amount of time I have to spend...

    ESO could get 100 million players and EVE Online would still be the best. :D The above cinematic trailer that Ahhzz posted is awesome. Grab some popcorn and watch it.

    [Solved] Why should I bother changing my broadband router's default password?

    It's true that there is but a slim chance your router may be compromised, but if you can make that chance even slimmer through a simple password change it would seem prudent to do so, no?

    Editorial Windows 8.1, and Why You Should Let Go of Windows 7

    That's only from the perspective of the desktop user. Win 7 is not touch/mobile friendly at all, and it's not surprising that MS wants to capitalize on that market. Their mistake was in not giving people sufficient options that were device dependent. There was no real reason that Win 8 could...
