Re: STAR WARS TIME!

Disney, I'm calling you out!! If your dream for Star Wars cash is remaking/tweaking/rebooting the Original Trilogy, fans of the same will never spend another dollar on Disney. The sad part is that your accountants and actuaries have already figured out that that's a popped zit in your expected cash...

Re: 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T routers available when?

2.5 Gbps and 5 Gbps would actually be beneficial for me. My NAS can handle ~2 GB/s of writes (backups and whatnot) but instead, I have to wait *hours* for my desktop and my wife's desktop to back up due to the limitations of gigabit. That's my use case as well, I want to enable faster backups and f...

2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T routers available when?

I'm dying to replace my router, and would prefer to upgrade to the faster speed, anyone have any idea when we will start to see some actual products? It feels like a long time since this standard was announced.

Re: Andromeda

Liking everything about it so far aside from a few niggles. Character creation is more limited. I know they did that on purpose to get your family to look alike, but I miss the vast customization, and the hair styles still suck. Having 3 powers at your disposal instead of 8 seems very limiting, espe...

I get the criticism for preorders, and go ahead and judge me, but I'm playing this game whether it's a 6/10 or 9.9/10. What if it's a 3/10? I have played 0 Bioware games that I would have considered to be less than 7/10, I can't imagine they would sh*t the bed that hard. They seem pretty good at ta...

Re: Hearthstone

However, with the newest expansion, there are "I win" legendaries I don't have. Facing those is frustrating even for me with most of the cards. The guy who brings back all the dead deathrattle cards - lost games just to that one card. And twin emps, while not quite so powerful, is indispe...

Almost done with 500 ranked wins on druid. It's my own deck as is my warlock deck. So what if some days I lose 2 of 3 games, at least it is my own design. /squee Nice work! I got to 500 with Jaina, at around 300 with the Paladin and Hunter. I made my own Paladin murloc deck in standard, it's pretty...

Re: Leaked 42-Page Presentation about PlayStation 4 Neo

I think this is great, it's the equivalent of upgrading your graphics card to play at higher settings. The older consoles won't stop working and will play as they always have, and people who want an experience with more bells and whistles can have one. It will also drive down the cost of the current...

Scorpio is out next christmas. Neo doesn't have a release date, but the first prototypes aren't due until first quarter of next year. How is that a year ahead? They'll have a long way to go from there. Says here it's out October 13th of this year. https://www.yahoo.com/tech/playstation-neo-pricing-...

Re: Leaked 42-Page Presentation about PlayStation 4 Neo

The faster than xbone ps4 gpu is 1.76 teras of single precision. The Scorpio is at least 6, and neo 4. Those are pretty damn significant improvements and 6 is possibly capable of 4k gaming, though frame rates will be somewhat limited. The neo, as stated by Sony, is not 4k capable, and never will be...
