    @Shelledfade1: Just to be clear, the graphics card companies aren't the ones boosting the prices. The demand is so high that as soon as the cards are available in store or online they're snapped up a...

    @banhammer: Miners are idiots, but they're not morons (lol). A mining optimized chip wouldn't be that big of a boost over the standard GPUs, so most of them won't pay the extra premium when they coul...

  • chibi-acer posted a message on the post Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch 1.08 Coming Soon, Here's What It Does.

    @Bond_Villain: That's not an applicable analogy because these are optional story changes that will only appear if you pursue them. Don't want to engage in same gender relationships? Don't pick the dia...

    @clmike: Fail to see how the agenda is "being shoved down your throat", since it's just an additional *option* for the storyline.I do agree that we don't necessarily want developers caving to every co...

    @REDShadowG: Most likely their shop is lacking *because* of their lack of DRM. Not all developers/publishers are trusting enough that people won't steal their stuff.They're definitely a long ways awa...

    @hxce: It probably won't matter much unless you have a 4K TV, and even then it's yet to be seen how drastic the difference will be.Hard to beat a decent PC rig, though.

    @mem: Depends on how the state wrote their law.

  • chibi-acer posted a message on the post The Consequences of No Man's Sky: Will Players Destroy or Preserve the Universe?.

    Seeing as how the chances that anyone will ever see your work are super low, I don't really feel like this will be a big issue. It's like creating a brand new account on Facebook and posting a photo...

    @MMX377: The original Superman is now the official Superman again.The DC universe got reset in the Flashpoint event, at which point they followed a somewhat younger Superman in a more skeptical world....

    @MMX377: The other Superman died, not the "true" one killed by Doomsday.

  • chibi-acer posted a message on the post Superman Is Dead Again--What That Now Means.

    @ToadstoolPeach: I'm much more a fan of the pre-New 52 Superman so I'm glad he's back, but thought the way they portrayed New-52 Superman's end was quite touching. The DC Rebirth #1 was one of the be...

  • chibi-acer posted a message on the post Superman Is Dead Again--What That Now Means.

    @tony_at_home: In fairness, New 52 Superman died a month ago. 99% of people actually interested in the Superman comic should have already read the previous month's issue. Everyone else will hear abo...

    @rikku45: Yes, that's what happened. Not sure how that's really so confusing as far as comics go, where time/dimensional travel happens frequently.Much more convoluted was Marvel's Secret Wars event,...

    @beantownsean: Agreed! SLI is cool stuff, but not many people have it, so the support is sometimes so-so. If you have the money to burn on a cutting edge rig then go for it, but otherwise I always p...

    It doesn't make the news as much anymore, but the leaps in graphics technology lately are truly impressive. Way more horsepower, with LESS power consumption and heat production? It's crazy!Back i...

    Fun geeky conversation, though a bit nit-picky.

    If Disney doesn't shut them down, EA could conceivably sue Disney for permitting a violation of their exclusivity contract. Or EA could push to have them shutdown directly. If it was just Disney th...
