    Website that shows current / historical number of online players ? (not just steam games)

    There is no reason why any of these organizations have to release any of their data. The very short is: if they haven’t done it themselves, then it is not out there in the wild.

    Gaming in your 40s

    Skimmed the op, didn't read all the thread replies, but I'll throw in my 2 cents. ... Personally I think it's a big bag of: 'who cares?' Life is short. Hobbies are only as useful to you as much as they give you joy. And if they aren't doing that, then their value, even objectively, isn't...

    Cheap and ultra-wide 4K60?

    Based on your list of phones, I doubt this recommendation will mean anything for you, but all "basic" (non-Pro) iPhones since the 11 have a "regular" lens (which photographers and videographer's would still consider to be wide angle) at 26mm full frame equivalent and an ultra-wide lens at 13mm...

    Over-ear headphones that are comfortable for long periods?

    I came in late. I didn't see info in the OP. Best of luck on your new set of cans!

    Poll: Do you play with an inverted mouse?

    No. Only time I invert is for looking on games involving flight.

    Over-ear headphones that are comfortable for long periods?

    Budget? I would probably recommend something like Sennheiser HD-600 HD-650 6XX Any over-ear headphones should at least get you in the vicinity. I'd recommend either open-back or semi-open if you're sensitive in general to headphone pressure (as opposed to closed-back). It should help at least...

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    It will. We're in inflation land. Any excuse to push the price up that customers will accept, publishers will do. Not sure what world you're living in, but unless those games all of a sudden don't require Steam to operate then it's not a solution. That certainly will not work with 100%...

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    Ah, acknowledgement that it’s about greed and not valves pricing model. Microsoft like Epic just wants a bite at the pie. You think this is altruism? They see a massive game market that they could be making a percentage sale off of and they’re simply using whatever tools they can do to do so...

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    I don’t think you’ve paid attention to our conversation thread. Gigabyte’s solution is that Steam should die. So, using your analogy that’s like “murdering your girl after knocking her up.” You’re talking to someone that doesn’t have a problem with any of this stuff vs someone that claims it’s...

    AMD’s Radeon Vulkan Drivers Add Support for Ray Tracing on Older GCN GPUs

    I think the most relevant portion of the article is this: "In the GravityMark benchmark, LBVH boosted the performance from just 13 FPS to a whopping 250 FPS. However, this is a cherry-picked example, and don’t expect the same kind of gains elsewhere." The long and the short is: there is a...

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    My response is: ok. I don't think there is really a point in discussing any of your other points and the validity of them. Buy from somewhere else. Steam doesn't need to die for you to find a different platform. If you hate them as much as you purport, it should be pretty easy to avoid. End...

    AMD’s Radeon Vulkan Drivers Add Support for Ray Tracing on Older GCN GPUs

    Pretty amazing if true. If they can bring this to DX12 and Linux/Mac, so much the better.

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    No. The reason why Steam exists is to be a form of distribution that bypasses the need for the physical distribution of media. Simply by giving access to anyone to purchase games, not needing to print or create anything, and cutting out physical retailers have allowed game manufacturers to go...

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    was Use something else. Killing Steam for everyone just because it bugs you is pretty absurd. Not that either of our opinions matter here. Basically this.

    12tb Easystore External USB - $198.99 & 16TB - $299.99

    Oof. Well I could cancel my order, but I guess I already rolled the dice on the 14TB option. $200 was just too reasonable. Hope it doesn't bite me. I've purchased other refurbed drives before that are still going strong and didn't give me problems.
