That first one is the reason I’m stoked. My PC burned in the camp fire last year and I haven’t built a new one yet. I very well may not, now. This appears to be good enough to run my steam games on, I’ll have to give it a try.

Texture was a big part of my picky eating as a kid. I couldn’t stand any detectable fat or gristle on meat or skin on chicken, and given that kids don’t often have the fine motor skills to precisely cut those parts off a steak, it meant I didn’t often like eating steak. Similarly, I didn’t understand the point of Read more

To summarize an old post of mine, Gamers were never to really prepared to have their hobby *actually* treated like the form of art they always kept shouting that it was. They’re art when it needs to be protected, but they’re mindless toys come time to examine them.

I keep a safety pin pinned inside my laptop bag. In a pinch it is a port lint remover, a SIM tray puller, a short-circuit builder, and, in more pedestrian moments, an emergency clothing repair device. Read more

Ugh... but what happens when it’s only specific chargers, other ones stay plugged in well!

Looks like my level of sarcasm isn’t obvious enough in this age of knee-jerk reactions. Let me try this again. My friend was an idiot who blamed Apple for her own stupidity and I was trying to help others avoid the same fate. And for the record, I’m on team Apple and believe that Google is the one making the garbage Read more

I am in my early 30s and have lived in The United States of America for my entire life. I am African-American and me and my family have been victims of the most oppressive and difficult elements of modern capitalism. Read more

Yeah, agreed. It sounds like a huge emotional PITA and I feel for her but they worked with her and she got her stuff back. And hopefully she’ll be smarter in the future.

Nobody who has suffered under Capitalism, or you know, has read a history book, thinks Capitalism is a good thing. It’s just old burnt out yuppies, dumb Boomers who think they’re oppressed, and actual violent revolutionaries who think Capitalism works. Ask the ghosts of 100 million people who died under its heel in Read more

I love how these people breeze past the problems of capitalism. I’ve walked capitalist countries all over the world and in many - most - I see orphans, with various deformities, begging on the street in the middle of the night, alone. Even the intact families struggle to survive. Don’t even get me started on what Read more

I'd rephrase that to “5 years ago people gave less of a shit about those around them, but now we realize that words mean things and value not making jokes at the expense of vulnerable people.”

I honestly expected Titanfall 2 to be on this list. The single-player is effortlessly satisfying, with elements that last a single stage you could base an entire game around. Read more

I honestly don’t know why Watchdogs 2 was made to suffer from the backlash of the original Watchdogs. The tone and spirit of that game was completely different, fresh and new. And it still kept a lot of the mechanics that Ubi does tend to get right (loved the melee and parkour), but not lacking for personality like Read more

What I liked about Watch Dogs 2 is that, to a degree at least, it avoided a lot of the pitfalls that Ubisoft titles often fall into when they try to tackle real-world issues, especially in comparison to the first game. Yes, the ending did feel like it put a bit too neat a bow on things, with how it had everything Read more

Also enjoyed Watch Dogs 2, mostly because it’s depiction of San Francisco was a cool place to hang out in. The story was fun and actually got closer to a Ubisoft game taking a stance than any other game before.

Titanfall 2 definitely belongs on this list. The combat gameplay was some of the most enjoyable and well done in the genre, but most of all the level design is probably in the top 3 of the decade (along with Dishonored 2 and not sure who else... Deus Ex...?)

Titanfall 2 single player had mechanics you could make entire other games out of, all crammed into an awesome and fun shooter with a decent story. Read more
