    AMD Reports 3rd Quarter 2019 Financial Results

    I wish I had bought more than a measly 100 shares of AMD stock when it was $2 a share. I bought it more in an effort to support one of my favorite companies with full expectation that I was probably going to lose a good chunk of that money. Who knew that it is the only reason my stock portfolio...

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    I especially would like some of the older nostalgic tracks that have gone away. I miss some of the ones that were based out of Japan. A few of them did make a return in FM7 thankfully, but others like the Fujimi Kaido did not. My only other gripe is that some of the cars still don't sound like...

    Tesla Is Unveiling Its All-Electric Crossover, the Model Y, on March 14

    I think Musk is on the right track as he has realized just how important having a diverse product line-up will be to the success of Tesla. I drive a diesel truck but have always been fascinated with Tesla. I even put a deposit down on a M3 until I found out that I would be working in a remote...

    Samsung Quits Blu-ray Player Market

    The problem with 4K streaming is the quality of the stream and the bandwidth needed to maintain a certain level of quality. I am a huge fan of maintaining physical media, but who even makes a decent Blu-Ray player anymore? I am still using my Denon which is a rather higher end unit. The job it...

    Bethesda Purges Duped Items from Fallout 76

    Honestly, I think the appeal originally was that it was a technical masterpiece at the time. I did not like how there were huge gaps in the storyline that were inadequately explained by a cutscene with a Russian guy talking. The story and action just did not feel continuous.

    New DOOM Movie News

    Am I the only one who thought the original Doom Movie with Karl Urban and The Rock was pretty damn good? Maybe it was not a good movie for the general public, but it was damn good for those of us who got to experience just how that simple pixelated shooter changed the industry. I just hated the...

    Unreal Envisioned Through Unreal 4 Eyes

    One of the greatest games of the era. Truly a masterpiece in terms of graphics, sound, and level design. I honestly would rather keep it the way it is for the sake of nostalgia unless they plan on doing a remake with all new high resolution and high detail textures as we saw in the remakes of...

    3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 (my first 3dfx card)

    Or in a Pentium 200 MMX IBM Aptiva. I have all of my original Voodoo cards from 1, 2, and the Voodoo 3 3500. My neighbor at the time even had an HP Pavilion that came with a Voodoo 1 integrated into the motherboard. Very sad that the company that revolutionized desktop gaming went out so quick...

    Atari VCS Hardware Specs Revealed

    This is probably going to flop. Yes it can do a lot more than simply play retro games, but the market for this is going to be very limited. Nintendo really got the price point for nostalgia issue right when they launched the NES, SNES, and when they relaunch the NES again for a second run. These...

    Walmart Associate Delivery Pays Employees to Deliver Packages After Shift Work Ends

    Absolutely not. I go to a family owned pizza shop where I have known the employees who work for this employer since 1995. Their pizza is not even the best, but I go there because the service is and plus it is always nice to know the people who you are doing business with.

    Walmart Associate Delivery Pays Employees to Deliver Packages After Shift Work Ends

    This would be my biggest concern. The Walmart down the street from me is actually so bad that I drive 20+ miles to the Walmart out in a wealthy suburb to do most of my shopping. I really love Walmart, but probably wouldn't use this type of option. I would only utilize this if they guaranteed...

    NYC Teens More Interested in Video Games than Sex According to Study

    That is the issue as I don't have time for any hobbies. I'll have to figure something out though as I am quickly burning out to the point where I am starting to feel apathetic about everything. I am considering relocating into rural Eastern Kentucky right now and getting away from it all.

    NYC Teens More Interested in Video Games than Sex According to Study

    That was back when I had Steve and Kyle change my name for me on this forum as I was using my real name. I used to enjoy PC gaming before I settled for just console gaming as it is more casual which thus allows me to pick up the controller and play here and there. Then I just got too busy to...

    NYC Teens More Interested in Video Games than Sex According to Study

    How the hell do kids have 3 hours a day to play video games? Shouldn't they be studying, participating in school activities, or something more productive in life. This is a big problem in society as we are finding that our kids increasingly are unable to be competitive against a globalized work...

    Mass Effect: Andromeda Video Card Performance Preview @ [H]

    Console games locked at 30fps can actually feel pretty smooth so long as it isn't a game that requires twitch reflexes and fast movements. That is because the frame rates are pretty much locked and you aren't seeing the spastic spikes and dips often seen on these charts. That is why back when I...
