    PC Having trouble purchasing a new 3000-series GPU?

    I personally knew that this was going to be a shit-show release. I figured the primary issue would be bot-purchases, so scalpers could capitalize on the overpriced resale of bulk purchases. What's funny though is that websites were DDoS'd, and stock was completely depleted within 30 seconds of...

    Featured Does your perception of game graphics feel like it scales with the times?

    I have always been fond of good computer graphics. When I played King's Quest III, for example, I thought it was a drastic improvement over the first two games. When King's Quest IV was released, it was the first VGA title in the series and I was BLOWN AWAY. It was a full 8MB, too. Other Sierra...

    Anyone know about this documentary? It's 2 hours 45 minutes long, and covers the history of the Playstation, from inception and Sony's original plans to collaborate with Nintendo, then branching off to their own platform.

    PC Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Well, the game will be available for play in about 8 hours as of this post. I found a Digital Foundry video quite interesting... it covers the multitude of graphics stuttering issues, not dependent on CPU and GPU capabilities... I am sure that in the future (who knows when), several patches will...

    Featured PS5 or Xbox Series X - or both? Or none?

    I'm wondering if anyone out there has a perspective on what they think of the upcoming consoles by Sony and Microsoft. For me personally, I've been wary of console gaming since it turned into a PC-in-a-box with the same issues as PC games. In the "old days", games could just be plugged in and...
