    Oh, another fun anime I caught was Amagi Brilliant Park. Not sure you've seen it. You sound like you keep up to date, but I was surprised by that one. Only new stuff I've seen are those latest Titan episodes, I think.

    I gave it a shot (all episodes actually). Still didn't like it. Watching this protagonist was almost painful.. although I shouldn't complain, since I criticized Overlord and Slime for having overpowered protagonists. But damn, this kid was like the polar opposite. He couldn't do anything right...

    Cyberpunk 2077 will launch in April 2020

    People are actually advocating piracy here? Grow up.

    Cyberpunk 2077 will launch in April 2020

    The main difference is Mike Pondsmith actually likes video games and is involved..

    I'll give Re:Zero a chance, I guess. I don't have high hopes, but maybe low expectations will make it enjoyable :p

    CoolerMaster MasterGel Maker VS Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

    It's only a few degrees loss afaik. I've already delidded anyways, so I'm not as desperate for more as I would be otherwise. But I get what you're saying.

    New Lord of the Rings MMO being developed by...Amazon...and a chicken farming - processing company

    I was a beta tester on the first LOTR MMO back in the day. It was a stupid idea. This might have more going for it though, since it's in a different timeline. No matter how well executed the game is, the main setting has nothing going for it in this genre. Not many people want to be in the some...

    CoolerMaster MasterGel Maker VS Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

    I'd be scared to use it regularly.. but I did use it for delidding. I actually bought a Carbonaut pad for the IHS over Kryonaut though. It's not as good, but it is convenient and consistent.

    New eCh0raix Ransomware Brute-Forces QNAP NAS Devices

    I wonder how many of these are made for a singular/personal purpose.. and simply get leaked into the wild? What's the purpose of screwing everyone? I'm sure a lot of regular NAS consumers have nothing critical on them.

    Watching Heroic Legend of Arslan... or rather, I'm trying again. I've given it a try before, but cut it short and wasn't in the mood. But I'm such a big fan of Legend of Galactic Heroes that I owe this show at least that much.

    Well, I actually stuck with Slime as you can tell, but that's still my criticism.. He just didn't seem to run into significant problems. He's a cute character though (and so were all of the goblins)... at least it had that going for it. :p

    Major American OEMs to Move Some Manufacturing Out of China

    That much will always hold true. It's the double edged sword of capitalism, I guess. Trump seems to be trying to re-conceive commerce in almost old world/monarch era terms, where cost is actually a secondary concern, and patriotism takes precedent. Full of trade wars, tariffs, and countries...

    Yes, but I don't see the drama in that. There's another one I watched that was much like it, but without the edgelord element. "That Time I turned into a Slime". Where some dude dies and gets reincarnated as a slime monster in another world. Everything just works out in his favor though...

    I still haven't seen the second season of OPM. I might be kinder to SAO on it's own, but I mentioned some pages back that anime is flooded with "isekai"/transportation stories like this. I'm a bit annoyed by it. If it's not transportation into a video game, it's some other transportation...

    Intel 10th Generation Core "Comet Lake" Lineup Detailed

    I'm actually surprised. I figured Intel would actually reserve 10th gen for 10nm and throw parades and have a big ceremony sacrificing goats. Instead we get another i7.

    "Kakegurui" is a good example why I shouldn't read reviews (at least on the bigger sites). I'm pretty sure this is one of the better anime I've seen. Or at least, one of the better highschool anime (of which there is a lot to choose from). And it's also somewhat original (it's about gambling)...

    Major American OEMs to Move Some Manufacturing Out of China

    I agree it's not necessarily about quality. The most important thing is keeping schematics and techniques away from China (not to mention jobs)... That's their real bread and butter...across every conceivable industry. It doesn't even matter if you're a big corporation that probably deserves to...

    List cases with 200mm side fan support

    It's great. I think the bigger difference with the U12s is the fans, so if you have one already, you'd save some cash by just upgrading to those alone. Unless you want the extra few degrees from the heatsink too. I became such a fan of the new A12s that I decked out my case with them as well.

    List cases with 200mm side fan support

    This old article did a lot of testing and would disagree... At worst, it's only a small boost to an already good front to back airflow setup. But not a detriment. And of course, it'll especially be beneficial to those who want to keep their drive cages as well... instead of setups where...

    Intel Releasing 10 core 20 thread i9-10900KF for $499 very soon... 5.2 Ghz boost

    I admit my ignorance on the pricing. I wouldn't do that either.

    Intel Releasing 10 core 20 thread i9-10900KF for $499 very soon... 5.2 Ghz boost

    Just get a Core-X and delid as I did. Or be happy with Coffee Lake/6 cores and delid one of those (I wouldn't recommend 9900k or any other of Intel's latest foray into soldering. It's not as good as it could be, and much more dangerous to delid if you want to improve them).

    MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming X

    Where are xx80s priced like that? lol.. I prefer my Vega, but I might just switch for that. They're all $700+ here in the US. This 2060 Super is closer in price to the old 2060 (running around $350+).

    Intel Releasing 10 core 20 thread i9-10900KF for $499 very soon... 5.2 Ghz boost

    I know.. but I mentioned that AMD has done this before. It seems to see-saw between the two (at least on the tech front.. I don't think Intel has ever been hurt financially by a competitor. In that respect, they do themselves more harm than anyone else).

    Intel Releasing 10 core 20 thread i9-10900KF for $499 very soon... 5.2 Ghz boost

    FYI, as long as things are roughly comparable, these details don't matter in the end. I lived through the PowerPC (clearly superior) vs Pentium wars and Intel still wiped the floor with not just one but 3 companies (Apple/IBM/Motorola). Perhaps more if you want to count all of the other...

    Intel Releasing 10 core 20 thread i9-10900KF for $499 very soon... 5.2 Ghz boost

    Definitely agree there. But what is up with Ryzen taking similar sounding chipset names themselves (x399, x570, etc). It's like they're trolling, limiting Intel's naming schemes even more.
