I just for the most part ignore the rumors and supposed leaks. I'm confident that we'll get Half-Life 3, and I'm confident that I will find it to be just as much of a technological marvel as the...

A lot of people know one obnoxious manchild who is just like the Rapaport character. This type of person never grows up mentally and behaves almost the exact same way as they did when they were 12...

This game makes me want the next GTA to star a Claude-like quiet enforcer who gets straight to business. I tire of these characters' constant bickering and complaints.

Although I doubt the show will have Paige staying in Russia, I suppose Philip and Elizabeth could create a story of her running away and possibly being abducted. The world in the '80s had no shortage...

Not only that, but I found these first two episodes to be every bit as strong as the first season overall. It has competently expanded on all of the show's core themes and the dialog is just as...

I thought the second episode was even better than the first. It perfectly captured the awkward nature of communication after burning bridges, and the lawyer was hilarious simply by being spot-on with...

Lots of excellent dialog in the latest episode. The line I found funniest was one of the simpler ones, which occurred when Ben was walking around in an undershirt: "I need a shirt. This isn't Die...

I would be crashing into a lot more people if the population were significantly denser. My real life driving skills are immaculate; my GTA driving skills... not so much.

I just read an excellent review at PC Perspective of the NVMe version of the Samsung SM951 M.2 SSD. As expected, it is appreciably better than the Intel 750 in very small file transfers, making it a...

I'm inclined to think that Philip's reveal indicates that Martha is a goner, and that the situation is to parallel when Elizabeth was most candid about herself right before she killed the old lady.

Yeah, the deplorable Trevor character in particular is extremely over-the-top, even by this series' standards. That said, the game is lots of fun.

I believe he said 92%. I remember a couple of years ago when it was said that the figure is around 90%.

It's no surprise, and it will only get more significant when content and people's...

I was never that big of a Weekend Update critic as I feel the stories themselves are often almost enough of a joke. I did not think Seth Meyers was that much more interesting of a host than Che and...

I have a good memory and can confidently say that I've seen far worse seasons of SNL. I'm thinking of a lot of the duller than dull '80s dreck in particular.

Not much when compared to a regular SATA SSD. The real benefits at this time would come from tasks like 4K video editing.

I suspect that the newest crop of consumer SSD controllers cannot be reasonably tuned to take advantage of anything beyond a PCIe x4 link at 3.0 speeds.

I'm sure some here will find fault, but I thought last night's show was very funny. The CNN and "Neurotology" (Scientology) segments were particularly well done.

That's just his kind of humor; look at MacGruber. Lowbrow jokes and despicable clowns are his forte, which is not necessarily a bad thing when implemented in an interesting way. I don't need likeable...

Yeah, that is one of the most bizarrely written shows. The human interaction is odder than its vampire premise. It will be interesting to see how season 2 turns out.

Excellent news.

What I like most about The Americans is that it's smartly grounded. FX's The Bridge could have been a masterpiece if it wasn't for a number of head-scratching decisions in its...
