The WalMart at Fair Lakes has it for $10. I was just there and they have several in the rack. It's the mixed media rack at the backside of the media section, pretty much at the corner. You'll see...

The thing with Cataclysm is that it isn't part of the Homeworld IP deal. It's based on Homeworld, but it was created by a developer who had been commissioned by Sierra/Vivendi Universal to do it -...

I'm watching Appleseed Alpha right now. Not very impressed, but it is exactly what I expected from Sony. The audio mix isn't great and definitely could have been better given the source material.

I picked up the GITS Anniversary Blu-Ray at WalMart for $10. Not worth buying if you already own the earlier BD of the 2.0 version, unless you absolutely want it for the sake of being a completist.

The monitor has to accept the Nvidia HDMI hack signal or it won't work. That's pretty much the problem in that many monitors won't accept it as a valid HDMI signal. Some UHDTVs like the larger...

I suspect that Pascal - the GPU coming after Maxwell, later this year - will bring at least one low-end variant that will chew through any HTPC duties with 2-4GB of stacked memory on the GPU. It...
