Today at 12pm pacific, IGN and the Video Game History Foundation are teaming up for a 5 hour stream of them playing "a slew of rare things, including canceled games, unreleased consoles, forgotten preview builds, and much more." This is also a fundraising event for VGHF which looks like it perserves old games and consoles. I don't know much about the charity, but the event seems pretty cool. I will be checking it out.

For more info on how to watch it, go here:

In the hopes of making my workstation more efficient, I've been experimenting with different application launchers. When I was on the Mac, I was using a program called DragThing, and I loved it. Now that I'm on Windows, I've found a couple that work well enough, but nothing that I really loved. Then I stumbled on Launchy, which is similar to Spotlight on the Mac: A pop-up search field that lets you search for and launch the application your looking for, without the need for mouse clicking. I never gave this option much thought, until I started using it. Now I find it highly useful, to the point that I can't imagine having never used it.

As great as this is,... Read All

I signed up for the Paladins Console Beta at https://www.paladins.com/ps4-beta-signup/ a little while ago. Being a fan of the game on PC (I run it on Linux under Wine) and already being familiar with Hi-Rez Studios' PS4 port of their exciting action MOBA, Smite, this was a no-brainer. Didn't expect to get an invite any time soon as I'm not a pro-tier player and rarely play in the competitive queue. However, I did get my invite…to the closed Alpha test.

Hi-Rez seems committed to making games that fans like to play. They also like to encourage people to play with friends. Smite often has weekends where there are bonuses for being in a party and Paladins has a... Read All

Conan visits the YouTube Space in New York City and is presented with some of the most high-tech, cutting edge virtual reality technology in the world, but he mostly wants to know about porn.

Jack has never built a PC.

Rich has built a PC.

Rich has the fantastic idea of hooking up a heart rate monitor to Jack as Jack build's his first PC.


This was actually a lot more enjoyable to watch than I thought it would be! I did watch all 4 hours and 49 mins of it (over the course of 2 days). There is a lot of good banter between Jack and Rich, and the twitch viewers were both helpful and entertaining in their hazing of Jack.

Enjoy!

Welcome, explorers!

There are some pretty incredible sights to see in No Man's Sky, and we want to see! Use this thread as a place to share links to screenshots of your own personal journey through the universe. Please keep this spoiler free! Some of the story elements are pretty amazing to look at, but we want to see those other discoveries more unique to you and your travels. We want to see what star systems you're traveling to, and what worlds you're visiting. What creatures are you coming across? What kinds of ships or tools are you discovering? At minimum, a simple description with a link is all that's needed, but feel free to expound and tell the story... Read All

Welcome, travelers!

Please use the Waypoints thread as a means to share helpful tips and insights with other players in No Man's Sky. We want to try to keep this generally spoiler-free, so, please, no story elements or game progression revelations. This is more a place for things like mining guides, upgrade efficiencies, and general ways in which we can help each other throughout our respective journeys.

This is just funny :D

Years ago, someone introduced me to Penn & Teller: Bullshit! I believe it was the friend that appears in their episode regarding circumcision. However, I watched a few of the other episodes as well. Months ago I watched the entire series. In their show, magicians Penn & Teller show us the bullshit involved in so many things such as circumcision, alternative medicine, and various other topics. While I didn't necessarily agree with them 100%, I found myself agreeing with them almost all of the time.

I highly recommend this show as it contains some eye openers. I think we as a society owe it to ourselves to take a look at all this bullshit that drives... Read All
