  1. John Carmack Resigns from Meta and Cites Lack of Efficiency within the Company as the Main Reason for Departure

    John Carmack, very smart guy. But like most engineers, it wouldn't surprise me if he was exceptionally bad at playing office politics. It's not necessarily that he couldn't move faster at a place like Meta, it's likely that he just didn't know how to change his operating behavior, and sell-in to...
  2. FSP Supplementary Power Supply Unit

    Does this have any use to anyone? I believe I won it at Quakecon 2006, but never took it out of the box.
  3. The World’s First Flying Bike Makes Its Debut at the North American International Auto Show

    It's cool, but I don't see many practical benefits of it over a normal road vehicle. Just an annoying sound.
  4. Non-Big 3 Cell Carrier

    Update: Still with Visible. Still loving the $25/month. No complaints whatsoever.
  5. Prodeus

    It's certainly not going to blow you away with its story (not sure it has one?), but game play is solid, guns are solid, music is top notch, and there's enough enemy and level variety to keep it interesting. A couple hours more in and still enjoying it.
  6. New Aliens Action-Horror Game Announced by Survios and 20th Century Games, Created on Unreal Engine 5

    I loved Alien: Isolation... I've heard Alien: Fireteam Elite is decent... But other than that, I haven't been super impressed with the games from the Alien franchise.. Hopefully this one will prove me wrong.
  7. Prodeus

    I had Prodeus ( on my Steam wish list for quite some time and finally decided to take the plunge and buy it last weekend. I'm about 3 hours in and really am enjoying it. If you enjoyed DOOM 2016, you would likely also really enjoy this game...
  8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Logo Revealed by Infinity Ward

    Am I living in an alternate time line? I could have sworn there already has been a "Modern Warfare 2" game
  9. Microsoft Building Program That Lets Brands Place Ads into Xbox Games

    Yeah, I remember when Enemy Territory: Quake Wars tried this (as well as Quake Live when it was browser-based). I saw a couple of live ads, but in general I think it flopped pretty hard. Now, ad tech has come a long way, and Microsoft has a huge portfolio of studies and games now, so I could see...
  10. Sold a Vega 56 on eBay and the buyer wants to return -- what should I ask for?

    To wrap this up -- Yesterday I sent a lengthy message to the buyer with specific instructions on how to test the card for failure. Got a response today that the buyer purchased 2 cards and accidentally opened a return on the wrong one. Perhaps it was an honest mistake :) Still never selling...
  11. Sold a Vega 56 on eBay and the buyer wants to return -- what should I ask for?

    Well good to know that eBay SHOULD refund the selling fees. I've yet to see see that in their FAQ, but here's to hoping. And yeah -- What is the point of having a "No Refund" policy if the buyer can always request a refund anyway? I don't see any reason the buyer couldn't just be having buyers...
  12. Sold a Vega 56 on eBay and the buyer wants to return -- what should I ask for?

    Thanks for that! I sent a reply asking to take a video of the card running a stress test (suggesting the stress test built into the AMD drivers) with the command output clearly visible in the video. We'll see what the response is...
  13. Sold a Vega 56 on eBay and the buyer wants to return -- what should I ask for?

    Yes, I will do that but from what I’m reading in the internet I’m basically going to have no choice but to accept the returns. And, even if the card is returned in perfect order (perhaps the buyer just has remorse) given that the price of video cards are falling, I’m going to lose some money on...
  14. Sold a Vega 56 on eBay and the buyer wants to return -- what should I ask for?

    I have pictures of the card which visibly has the S/N printed on it
  15. Sold a Vega 56 on eBay and the buyer wants to return -- what should I ask for?

    Has anyone sold computer hardware on ebay before? And, if the buyer has requested a return, how did you handle it? I recently sold a Vega 56 on eBay (it was delivered to buyer March 14) and I got a return request for the item today, stating: "This gpu runs for at most 10 mins then will give a...
  16. New Alien Film in Development for Hulu

    The only Alien licensed asset that should see the light of day is a sequel to Alien Isolation
  17. Mozilla’s Firefox Browser Is Flatlining: “Not Expected to Win Back Any Market Share At This Point”

    Firefox is my main desktop web browser. The only thing Chrome has I wish FF did was the ability to cast a tab onto a Chromecast enabled device
  18. Crucial Ballistix brand going away

    One of my first builds I had the Ballistix Tracer memory in it... Eventually it went bad, likely due to the cheap BioStar motherboard it was plugged into. The RMA process was smooth, and Crucial sent back a stress "ball" shaped like a pig, and branded a "memory hog". It was a nice surprise and...
