    Gaming Favorite N64 game(s)?

    Star Fox 64 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Super Smash Bros. GoldenEye 007 Mario Kart 64 Super Mario 64 Wave Race 64 Jet Force Gemini
  2. Yes, PCIe 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0.
  3. CS 1.6 when they were rolling out Steam to deliver patches. Think WON was still a thing.
  4. That would be perfect if I could find a deal on a 1080Ti. Hitting those high refresh rates is tough even with what I got. Shame I can't pick up an tensor/RT board and drop it in alongside. $800/1200 is steep af but for half that I might go in on RT since I already have a GPU. Then again, I always wanted one of those PhysX boards way back when. Fun times.
  5. I'm not surprised in the least. If RT really is the future -- it does looks awesome in action, so I hope it turns out to be more than just a curiosity. Given NVIDIA's push, it might be? That said, it's still a bit early for that. For $1200, dropping below 60fps at only 1080p is pretty weak. That's the early adopter tax along with the "our only competition is Pascal" tax.
  6. Without apples-to-apples benchmarks, we don't know for sure... but you're probably right. Missed out on that $300 GTX 1080 today... sold out before I could even get to the link.
  7. 4 to 5 years is a pretty good run imo. 20 years ago, you'd be upgrading your desktop every other year just to keep up. In 4-5 years I'd have gone through two graphics cards anyway so as far as a laptop that lasts that long is concerned, a grand every 5 ain't so bad for something you can carry around.
  8. I'm just amused my 980 Ti is selling for $200 more than I paid for it two years ago. I'd sell it, but... games.
  9. Didn't know this was even a thing. Sucks to hear it's just another cash grab.
  10. I was a bit surprised by how quickly this Call of Duty game fell in price. A real stinker even by recent CoD standards.
  11. So they did just completely ignore the Multiplayer category, huh?
  12. A tossup between Ocarina of Time and Link to the Past for me. Depends on what I'm feeling like, 2D or 3D. Though Wand of Gameleon has an awesome overworld map theme.
  13. Glad to see Hellblade pick up some well-deserved wins.
  14. I'd argue that Comcast is already doing a fine job of fucking us over to the fullest extent allowable by law especially so when there isn't any viable competition in the area. Cutting regulation to telecom would only strengthen that capability. They'll even save money not having to hire a social media team to explain why they're so committed to their idea of an "open internet" since it wouldn't even need to be. Nice!
  15. Free as with no restriction, not necessarily for zero price.
  16. It's nice that we're able to have an open discussion about this on MLPF. That I don't have to pay for a social media package to even get here. That I can say what I want here without and oppressive government firewall blocking/monitoring every word I type. The internet is supposed to be free, open and accessible to everyone. It's an opinion that I share with the inventor of the WWW: https://www.fordfoundation.org/ideas/equals-change-blog/posts/the-web-belongs-to-all-of-us-qa-with-the-web-s-inventor-sir-tim-berners-lee/ As he describes in the interview, the key barrier keeping people
  17. Of course they can handle the traffic. It was never about capacity. Data caps and bandwidth restrictions aren't about relieving congestion. The cost of delivering broadband services has been decreasing for a long time. AT&T not charging for DirecTV data? DirecTV is an AT&T subsidiary. They're more than happy to bundle TV with your Internet and not charge you extra, nothing above and beyond what they're already charging you for anyway. AT&T's acquisition of DirecTV marked the point at which they decided to quit offering discounts on plans in my area. Do I have another choice? S
  18. I'm not a pro, I don't work in the industry, but my 2c is that it has to do with cost. Even if it isn't double, even if it's only 15-20% more -- for your average Hollywood blockbuster that's still a significant cost increase. That and we're all so used to seeing 24 in theaters and higher framerates for things like sitcoms. At least, that's what I felt when watching Terminator 2 on a 240Hz TV. There were sections (heavy on CGI) that looked like a cheap home movie. Granted, T2 is pretty ancient but I imagine it's gonna take more effort to make convincing CG effects at 60 and not have it loo

    Mega Thread Song Stuck in your Head Right Now

    Tem Shop as I was just perusing Fangamer's fine wares...
  20. Well, that's a blast from the past. I'm not sure. I didn't see it as a ripoff at the time, but I suppose you could call it an undersea Smurfs. Wasn't as popular, maybe like GoBots to the Transformers. Catchy theme song. I feel like that about a lot of 80s cartoons, tho.

Short list: Alvin and the Chipmunks, Animaniacs, Batman: The Animated Series, Beetlejuice, Captain Planet, Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers, TMNT, Darkwing Duck, David the Gnome, Dexter's Lab, Doug, Goof Troop, Gummi Bears, Heathcliff, Inspector Gadget, Johnny Bravo, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest, Muppet Babies, Rocko's Modern Life, Rugrats, Scooby Doo, Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM/AoStH), Swat Kats, Talespin, Ren & Stimpy, Powerpuff Girls, Tiny Toon Adventures I'm sure there a few examples in there from the 80s, but I watche

    Technology Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57)

    It's definitely quicker to load and feels snappier all around. That said, the limited API support killed off one of my must have add-ons so I'm still on 56. Considering a switch to ESR or one of the FF forks that retain support for add-ons.
