Wednesday. Such a tease. The weekend is so close, yet so far, far away. To help pass the time more quickly, enjoy links dedicated to that wonderful piece of technology, the PC. Below you can read about AMD’s new 8-core CPU, Windows 8 review plus more.
AMD has returned to a formula that has endeared it to PC enthusiasts time and time again: offering more performance per dollar than you’d get with the other guys, right in that sub-$200 sweet spot. That’s the sort of progress we can endorse.
Microsoft assumingly knew they were too late to the tablet game to come up with a dedicated tablet operating system, so “Windows everywhere” is possibly a strategy that had no second best. It’s the bet the company had to make to remain relevant, leveraging their PC muscle to gain traction in other growing markets. Windows 8 is a risky sales proposition but a fine operating system at the same time.
Overall, this card is great for those looking for an amazing card that can take a pounding. If you do want one, though, be quick, as these GPU’s are hand-sorted for performance, and there are only so many super-sample chips left.
You have the quality of a top-end case without the sticker shock – the CM Storm Scout 2 is an awesome mid-ranged mid-tower case. If you are looking for an affordable case that screams quality, look no further.
Regardless, if you’ve got a video card that is 2 or more generations behind current technology, the EVGA (or any) GeForce 660ti video card will make an outstanding upgrade that you won’t regret cracking your piggy bank for. Put it on your Christmas list.
This is a platformer about collecting shoes and jeans made for some kind of strange “make a game quickly” contest, but I’m not sure exactly which one since details on this game are very sparse.
Woodsie and Shepherd discuss some immersion elements they’d like to see in games – things such as little-to-no UI and a non-quantitative system of skill development/proficiency.
There’s no rule of thumb here, I think, other than to make that point: the more ways things can go wrong in a game, the more ways players can have to be heroes.
