  • AGESA 1006 has been a bit wonky for me. I 've had crashes that were not common prior. I may roll back. I'm running an Asrock AB350 Gaming K4 with a Ryzen 5 1600X and two 8GB sticks of G.Skill Ripjaws rated 3200 CL 14. The XMP was the only adjustment…
  • Verizon just moved all it's mail servers to AOL, so they have stake in AOL and Yahoo, it is a strange play as far as I can see. Maybe there is some infrastructure or experience in the two companies that they found useful given the value. I don't kno…
  • Orisia is incredibly valuable in the proper defensive team comp. With good healing and say a Bastion or a Torb turret to bury behind that shield, with her range and rate of fire it makes for double trouble at a point you want to anchor. Also her Min…

  • @primesuspect said: omg This is now one of my favorite things ever.
  • I kind of miss playing story based single player games. I've been so addicted to Overwatch that it's taken me outside of my typical gaming habits. I'm with you, this looks like a must play from a story and presentation standpoint.

  • Here is what I would do. Headsets that are marketed for "Gaming" are mostly poor all around performers. They do one thing reasonably well and you are charged a premium for it. Consider getting a decent pair of cans and a desktop microphone. Yo…
  • By removing the fedora you are not respecting our great heritage!
  • 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. …
