Since I was just in the market for buying an old server for rendering and running other stuff, I can say without a doubt the higher core count would win in rendering over higher single core speed. Even the small difference in number of cores we were looking at made a big diffe...

Who the fuck cares about piracy being morally just? The only people who seem to care about that are the people against piracy, people who pirate stuff don't care at all about the morality of it. Game gets timed exclusivity on a storefront when it was going to be released on a...

And I'm perfectly fine with that. Some people may not like superhero movies, maybe they just burnt out, but I'm still a huge fan of them and judging by how much Endgame made in the box office so are a lot of people. As long as they keep the same level of quality I have no qual...

Wonder what the pricing is going to be. They're releasing them one-by-one but I hope that doesn't mean they're going to all be full price titles. You can already get the MCC for xbone for $30, so I hope you don't end up having to pay more than like $20 for each of them.

Discord is free to use and lets people make as many servers as they want, with nearly everyone using it now instead of things like Skype or Teamspeak/Vent/Mumble. They have to be making money somehow, and Nitro isn't going to cut it, so how else do they keep the service free?
