I really hope that this one was done well. I love good stealth-oriented gameplay, so this has the potential to really draw me in.

One cool aspect is that some cues from Jerry Goldsmith's...

Yes, besting the competition in frames per second at particular price points takes the front seat even though it does not fully explain the experience when actually playing games.

Yes, you do not watch this show for content that is grounded in a great deal of reality. It is entertainment in a similar vein as CSI: Miami. I watch very little network television, but I do catch...

I ran two Diamond Monster 12MB Voodoo 2 cards as my very first SLI experience. Things were so much simpler for graphics rendering back then, before we had all of these extremely complicated shader...

SLI used to be a lot worse. Aside from relatively little support and optimization, there were sometimes visual artifacts as well.

As an example with regard to visual anomalies, I recall running...

I would have warned you if I knew that you didn't know about it. If the past is any indication with new GPU hardware, future driver updates should mitigate the problem for a number of games and make...

That was quite possibly the worst bit of television that I have seen in a long, long time. It was as if they were deliberately trying to make it the most awful viewing experience possible, but Seth...

My thoughts about it? I love the technology, but as you mentioned, we need very high quality display options before I get really excited about it.

As for the technology itself, I played with a...

No, but we did see him cough up lots of blood after getting shot point-blank in a vital area of the body. I doubt that Robles and his merry band of drug traffickers would be quick to take him to the...

Yeah, Linder was always sloppy in his methods and he felt that he was essentially indestructible because he was on the "right" side of things. The fact is he was just a lucky SOB -- that is until he...

I think a more interesting sendoff for Linder would have been for him to get the job done and find himself leading a directionless path after finding Eva gone. To me, that would have made the irony...

That had me at some unease as well. This show does dark, ominous environments quite effectively, which I guess bodes well for the presumably darker seasons to follow.

It certainly looked a little better and more imposing to me than that beyond ridiculous "O" face they gave him when infecting Eichorst.

Good atmosphere in tonight's episode. The Master looked a bit better to me when he was talking to Eph with his eyes glowing red.

The only real drag was everything involving Nora's mother. I...

Nvidia did a great job with the Maxwell architecture. I now think that I'll get two non-reference 970s soon after weighing the specific options that will be available from the start. The 970 pricing...
