PC Gaming Alive and Dominant

Osgeld Re:Simple math (243 comments)

about 700 bucks .... only game it doesnt run at maxed out settings (instead its 1 notch below maxed out) is crysis 3 all in true 1920x1080 resolution, using a 189$ video card from 2010

so its not that big of a cost difference, it performs leaps and bounds better than either next gen console, and I can be running a game, 3d cad, electronic design software or even just word or a web browser on it so its functionality severely outweighs anything the toys offer

I know there is a place and market for consoles, they are not for me, but I dont crusade against them by painting with a broad brush

A 2560x1440 VR Headset That's Mobile

Osgeld Re:Resolution is everything (135 comments)

resolution is really not even that big of a deal (course you would know that if you have used one... ever) its input lag, poor focus, weight, cables and refresh rate.

After all that you dont give a shit if the image is a bit grainy

I hate it when I have to bolt my VR helmet to the floor, now I can get a neck-ache with 78% more pixles while it runs on a phone that has about the same horsepower as a decade old computer!

the future is finally here!

Privacy Advocates Seek Regulation of Surveillance Tech Exports

Osgeld none seem that visible (16 comments)

dunno maybe its just me, but when floating around in space I wouldn't want a suit made of dark blue or grey with goffy swooshes on it, make that thing neon and coat it in a reflective layer so I light up like a road sign if the rope breaks
