  • I have the Corsair M65 as well, heavy, durable, good scroll wheel, but it's a bit shorter than I would have liked, good for claw grip, not great to palm unless you have super tiny hands, and my hands are not that big for a guy my size. Zowie now …
  • Played some Quake Champions Beta the last few days. There is a part of me that loves the old school fast as blazes get to the Quad as soon as it spawns gameplay, but another part of me where my reflexes are obviously a touch slower than they were 15…
  • @CB As always I'm a little tongue in cheek. I think it is fascinating though. Now that I really mean. The psychology that drives a gamer to do something they really don't enjoy to obtain something that has no real measurable value. I think all of…
  • "Nearly Forgot my Broken Heart" is my favorite song released in the last few years. Chris Cornell had this thing I liked. You see, anyone that practices hard enough can hit the right notes, sing in key, have good pitch, diction and such, even if you…
  • I tried Heroes of the Storm and inside a few minutes I was desperately bored. If I could have gotten desired loot just by logging in, trying a game or two maybe. Ten games doing something I don't like. My time is more valuable. I'm kind of glad Stea…
  • I wanted the Po Po DVa skin. I asked a guy on the server, hey man, what you have to do for that loot. "About four hours grinding in a game that sucks" was his reply.... No thanks. By my calculation four hours doing something I don't want usually …
  • http://store.steampowered.com/sub/15407/ Alan Wake is 90% off. My backlog of shame is far too deep to add another game that I'm modestly curious about just because it's cheap, but someone told me the other day that it's going to be removed from S…
  • I agree, places that brew their own for a local crowd, if they have something else to offer, decent food, music, sports on TV, whatever, (My dream is an 80's retro style arcade and craft brew together)... Those kind of places can continue to pop up …
  • The dream of a millennial dude owning a craft brewery is akin to millennial ladies all wanting their own cupcake bakery several years back. It's a tricky investment for a bank because most regions have reached saturation. There are going to be winne…
  • I will never forgive InBev/AB for destroying Rolling Rock. That was my cheap lawn mowing beer and they ruined it. When you move production, even the water source can be enough to ruin the taste of a brew. In some cases the tanks, or the storage faci…
  • I have enough experience playing Overwatch to say that the average six person team is two quiet guys/gals, three actively chatting positive guys/gals, and one blowhard asshat.... Every team seems to have one. It takes the other five to reel them in.…
  • @Thrax said: Most of these keys are misused VLK. Avoid. That is what I suspected. Thanks, I'll not go down that rabbit hole.
  • I actually have one, it is a brilliant little headphone amp. If anyone does desk work where they can put on some headphones most of the day, maybe programming or CAD work, and your company has the typical run of the mill awful OEM boxes from Dell, H…
  • @Thrax I went with your suggestion. ASRock B350 gaming K4 with some G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3200 CL 14 paired up with a Ryzen 1600X, and a shiny new RX 580. A few parts in hand, some on the way, should have a build together by this time next week. …
  • Thank you, won't be much longer now. I'll probably build in a couple weeks. Amazing how much decision making goes into your personal build. I had a case in mind, kinda backed off, thought no way I'd do glass, now I see some tempered glass side windo…
  • @AlexDeGruven - How do you feel about that motherboard? That is what I'm thinking about since I don't really feel the need to crossfire anymore I figure it will be decent enough. It looks like it has a pretty good audio chip. Looks like you at least…
  • In a way, I wonder if this is a smart promo. People are going to see it anyway, leave some mystery there. We knew Luke was going to train Rey, that was obvious. Otherwise the promo does not give us much, and I think that is a good thing for a change…
  • Rat BBQ or Star Wars... @primesuspect
  • My brother found one for me finally. I paid him the $60 for it, and now I feel somewhat guilty because I'm finding out nuts are paying $350 for it on ebay because Nintendo just decided to up and discontinue the thing. I will say, it's a little piece…
  • @Linc said: @Cliff_Forster said: Mad Catz sucked. That's why they are no more. That's the kind of epitaph you write for a company that folds in year 3, not year 28. Plenty of business ventures survive off the m…
  • First, hate to see news that means anyone is loosing work. That said, Mad Catz could never escape the image of being a manufacturer of low quality components that grandma got for the kids because she wanted to save five bucks and "it's just as go…
  • Trying again. Remember a vote for Cliff is a vote for a better tomorrow. When I have the power of Ryzen it will be amazing, wonderful, I'll have all the biggest words and best processing power.
  • @CB said: This time I'm the guy who has not seen any of these films. I don't get to be that guy very often. The 1933 film is a marvel. It's almost like one of those STEM engineering tests where someone hands you a few straws, some rubber…
  • I think the first film is a master class in imagination. They were so limited yet figured out a way to tell this huge story. Honestly without it, where would modern film be? I dig the Peter Jackson take as well, even Jack Black which seems to be …
