      When TSMC’s profits drop by 1/3 and Samsung is doing [url=https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/05/tech/samsung-profit-warning-smartphones/index.html<]this[/url<], Intel is clearly going bankrupt with a 5% drop*!! Imagine if those morans who can't do anything right had just thrown away the entire product line to focus only on smartphones** just like all the smart companies did! They sure wouldn't be reporting 5% drops! * In revenue for one segment, EPS beat. ** AMD would fully support that move, BTW.

        Great analysis, bro. Your job is secure, for now.

      Intel thought there’d be Ice in the lake.

      Too bad they didn’t hear about….

    I busted my DNA today. Good thing I still have many copies left.

      • BiffStroganoffsky

      Copies are never as good as the original. Your best days are behind you.

        • Wirko

        If all copies were perfect, we’d still be bacteria, mind you.

          Maybe that wouldn’t be so bad after all.

        Hey, those copies are not cheap knockoffs from China.

    They lian like case is probably the best looking Razer/RGB/gawdy case I’ve seen. I’ve always loved lian lis designs. If I were into the whole case racing scene I’d totally pick one of those up. Do any exist without the Razer logo? I’ve never been that impressed with their products.

      Silly me. It’s just the pc011. Nice!

    My daughter is so pumped for Detective Pokemon, and I’m going to have to take her, so it’s nice to read that other people liked it. Not that I’m anti-Pokemon (far from it), just that so many licensed property movies are total cash-ins.

    I recently started playing Yellow Pikachu Edition of the original game via Super Game Boy / Super Nt. It’s retro-charming. I can see why people are hooked. It’s also a good bonding experience with the kid, she likes to sit and watch and talk about every Pokemon I catch. We also play the TCG in a non-competitive environment. The cards are all hers but I built myself a grass/psychic deck for whenever she’s in the mood.

      I’m very fortunate that my six year old likes Final Fantasy 😀 It’s fun playing with her. We were playing FFIX last night and she was getting emotional at the end of the 3rd disk when Zidane gets some pretty deep news about his background/purpose (no spoilers). It’s a really fun bonding experience. The best part is I’m sharing my child hood memories with her and she likes it, though she complains about the graphics. I could just buy a port but where’s the fun in that?

        I know exactly the scene you’re talking about. I love FF IX. Everything pre-XI, actually, including X-2. I didn’t get much into any of the MMOs, XII was not really “Final Fantasy” to me any more, and then I just gave up after XIII.

        I didn’t get too many complaints about the graphics in Pokemon, but she thinks the OG Legend of Zelda (which to me looks way better) looked “old”. She loves Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, though. Plays both of them on her 2DS. She’s very into Nintendo properties. Mario, Zelda, even Super Metroid gets a lot of play.

          I love the story and aesthetics of JRPGs but hate the combat system(s).

          I always find them to be a tedious grind, compared to the tight, tense tactical combat of Banner Saga or the strategic possibilities of the Dragon Age or Pillars of Eternity series.

          It doesn’t help that a lot of JRPGs punish you for not grinding XP or loot (although Western RPGs have been as guilty here as well). Strangely enough, my favorite old school JRPG is probably Gainax’s Princess Maker II, which is nothing *but* grind, but combat was only one potential path the player could take, and the game itself was endlessly charming and rewarded player agency (no unavoidable pre-scripted events).

    Thanks fish! I’ve always considered you to be a gene-ial presence here. 🙂
