    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I'm still plugging away with NG+ and I'd say that Lyndell castle is where things "normalize." That's when the enemies start to have boatloads of hitpoints and start hurting you more than you're used to. It's not really much (if any) worse than your first pass since you should be loaded up, but...

    Most Milked Franchise

    At one time it was Street Fighter. Capcom was cranking out Street Fighter revisions left and right. Instead of just $60 carts/disks/downloads, Capcom was selling proprietary arcade cabinets, too. These days, it's Call of Duty along with EA's sports franchises. Neither need an entirely new game...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    To me, the scariest roaming enemies are those rolling iron maidens. Luckily they don't ever seem to drop shit, so I just run like hell whenever I see one.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    There are items that boost drop rates. You can always re-spec and crank Arcane to the max, too. I don't really care about getting every random drop, but I do habitually hunt down as many unique items as possible. Especially in NG+ where you can dual-wield weapons that only exist once per...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I swear this board is always the last to get any sort of update :P Here's the official repository for all of MSI's x570 BIOS updates. As you can see still nada for the Tomahawk, but almost all the others have one.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    The vast majority of the bosses are "real" bosses, but like the Kapra Demon and such in the first game, you end up encountering most of 'em as normal enemies later. Depending on what order you take, you might encounter a lot of them out in the open before you encounter them as bosses. Trick is...

    Far Cry 6

    I heard this game has major FPS fluctuations and it's definitely the fault of mgty23's PC. Better diagnose that shit now before it starts smoking.

    Epic Games Store

    Ghostwire is 1/3 off already. Feels like that game has received 0 attention.

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    With the 30-series cards, the difference between PCIe 3 and 4 isn't large. No clue about the 40-series (obviously), but there might not be that big of a jump. I wouldn't be concerned about DDR5, either. The factor's I'd look at are more related to your display and what types of performance you...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    After the amount of hoops you have to jump through in previous games, it's surprisingly not that rough getting all the achievements in Elden Ring. You can get all but the different endings in a single pass, and you can do that with backup saves. The achievements for getting the various talismans...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    I like the idea of a lighter and more compact phone that doesn't suck. At this point, I'm holding out for a folding phone for my next device. Hopefully that'll be the best of all worlds, and the tech is getting very, very close to ideal. I don't care if it's Google or Apple, just anybody but...

    GreedFall 2: The Dying World

    I've tried to play the original 2-3 times and always end up giving up. It just feels clumsy. Like a game 2-3 people made in their spare time after loving the original Witcher game.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Considering how little of the overarching story the first remake covered, Part 2 will either need to be huge or there will be a 3rd part coming for the PS6.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Something I've discovered that (maybe) other people knew about is a build focused on jump attacks. The Raven's Black Feathers armor and Claw Talisman both increase the damage of your jumping attacks. If you're dual-wielding, you have a unique L1 jumping attack that hits 2 times in super rapid...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    My plan is to snag the 4080 and sell my 3090 to offset some of the cost. I'm a sucker for bigger/better/faster/more, but I can't really justify the 4090 unless one falls in my lap. 16GB is enough RAM for my needs this time around, which is nice.
