    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    UT2k4 and Onslaught were the best gaming years of my life. It had everything. Sci-fi, decent music, crazy action sequences, hilarious kills, insane tug of war sequences, I mean the list just goes on and on. I had a few home lan parties with 10-15 people playing it till sunrise. I think about...

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    I have to disagree with the broadband. I had lan parties up until 2010. What really killed it was the lack of custom servers. People were getting tired of playing the same games, and nothing new had custom configurable servers.

    Except that resolution is only part of the equation. Refresh rate is the other, and that is what many of the adapters fail to do great with.

    How do people compare game benchmarks perfectly?

    Ok thanks guys. I’m not a reviewer. I’m upgrading from a 3770k to a 12900 and using my 3080 to the new rig. Obviously, I’ll have a huge difference in performance but seeing the actual numbers will be interesting.

    How do people compare game benchmarks perfectly?

    For games that don’t have an in-game benchmark, how do people navigate what seems like the exact same route in a game for 2 videos? I mean yeah, I think maybe they are doing the route manually, but surely there is an automated way?

    How and when did WASD + mouse look control scheme actually start?

    I have on clue. When I started playing FPS in the 90s, I immediately got annoyed with WASD, and I instantly switched to the cursor buttons. I didn't understand why they would want you to have your movement keys buried in a sea of other keys. The cursor keys nicely isolates your movement keys...

    Is 2077 finally worth playing?

    I get really scared of console to PC games vs games that are released on console and PC at the same time. I guess 2077 kinda broke that rule now lol. So I waited it out and read many of threads on the Steam forums, saw pictures of glitches people were seeing, saw the patch notes as they rolled...

    Is 2077 finally worth playing?

    I got over 170 hours in the first play through about 6 months ago. I want to play it again, but I am not doing so until I see how the patches advance. The biggest changes I want to see are the AI (they need to be more difficult and smarter) and little things here and there like the cardboard...
