Re: The elephant in the room?

* Valve's attitude has changed significantly, driving many people away. Once the king of free updates and goodies for its fans, Valve now looks to many like just another money-grubbing game dev who will do anything to scrape a bit more cash out of its customers, from their focus on the much-stigmat...

Re: HTC + Valve = new VR headset

I've been telling my wife for years that we better make sure we have enough money when I retire to buy a damn holodeck for the house. In 20 years I'm 63, we ARE going to have something close by then. WE ARE.

Re: So I ran the Tropics benchmark on my daughters computer.

The reality is the computer in it's current format does everything she wants it to. She's ten and primarily watches videos or plays minecraft. It does both just fine. I ran the bench to compare it to my son's computer more than anything else. I wasn't expecting much but the result still surprised me.
