    Sony GDM-FW900 CRT Monitor Brand NEW in BOX

    I recently purchased a smaller/non-special NIB Sony CRT. Even compared to my LG OLED@120Hz it's insane what we had to give up in terms of motion clarity, contrast, and picture quality when CRTs were phased out.

    Hogwarts Legacy

    In 2022 it **absolutely** is a reason to suspect future microtransaction bullshit. I'm still looking forward to the game - as long as it's 100% singleplayer and offline.

    Hogwarts Legacy

    Yeah I remember reading that too - but timers like that worry me about always-online requirements as well.

    Oh fuck - I realize it's just a timer but this does not bode well imo

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    https://old.reddit.com/r/Eldenring/comments/tlpp9w/input_reading_be_like/ I never noticed this cheap cheese in previous Soulsborne games - or at least never to this extent. Granted I didn’t play Sekiro and if comments are to be believed that game also included input reading and bosses doing...

    Nvidia hit with a Major Cyberattack

    There are two potential issues at play here and a semi-third specifically about leaks like this: 1) exact copy-pasta of the leaked proprietary code: nobody in (FL)OSS does this (or if they do they are braindead) since it’s a recipe for lawsuits 2) writing new code based on leaked proprietary...

    Nvidia hit with a Major Cyberattack

    It can potentially be a National Security disaster if the leaked data includes export-controlled design data (iirc this is usually some gnarly floating-point or cryptography designs). What I'm really curious about is if Nvidia will face Federal charges in such a scenario. Having worked at some...

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    Still not nearly as bad as the "stick your head up Microsoft's butthole so far that you can see the cloud(s)" approach.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I'll take From's 90s UI over whatever embedded web-browser UI bullshit most other "modern" games do these days :p I play From games for the gameplay, character customization and builds, and immersive/moody environments - never cared about the story personally.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Ah yup you're right, I didn't realize Elden Ring is DX12 - my bad.

    You can try DXVK on windows: https://old.reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/mlfcsc/a_guide_to_dxvk_on_windows/ This may be relevant from that Reddit thread:

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Very possible - I played Bloodborne and DS3 on a PS4 at janky-not-always 30FPS and I wasn't bothered at the time. I'm more talking about all the balance patches, fixes, and additional content.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I'm just going to wait for the PS5 GOTY edition w/ all DLCs. I learned my lesson w/ DS2 and DS3. From makes fantastic games, but like most developers the sensible choice is to just wait :/
