  • Destiny 2 Playerbase Has Dropped By Over 2 Million Users Since Launch

    If no one ever quit games, then no one would have time to pick up new games and we'd complain about there being nothing new out because no one had time to play it.

  • Should Best In Slot Exist?

    No.  The existence of a concept of "best in slot" is a failure of itemization.  There should be trade-offs among gear, not a clear best in slot.  For example, in Uncharted Waters Online, what's the "best in slot" item for each personal gear slot?  For each slot, you could probably make a case for perhaps 30 or so different items as sometimes being the best, depending on what you're doing.

  • Intel Coffee Lake 6-core (Out Now)

    Apparently it's a very soft launch, with New Egg saying it will be 3-5 weeks before they get any in stock:

    That's the sort of thing that companies do when they believe that they're behind and need to catch up.  And since Coffee Lake is really just Sky Lake Refresh Refresh, Intel could have launched it about two years ago if so inclined, though perhaps clocked a few hundred MHz lower.

    Get an Intel and Nvidia and you'll probably never have to search or post on forums about your poor performance.

    You buy particular parts, not brand names.  I assure you that there have been many people who bought an Intel Atom based part and then wondered why it was so slow, especially in the pre-Silvermont days when they didn't even have out of order execution.

  • If you won the lottery . . .


    On the flip side there have been people who won big and started successful businesses that made them even more money.  It was usually something they always wanted to do but didn't have the funds.
    And why didn't they have the money sooner?  Because they spent it on the lottery.

    The amount of revenue that state lotteries raise is staggering.  It's commonly hundreds of dollars per person per year, even including the many people who don't play the lottery at all.  They're not raising that kind of money from someone who casually burns a few dollars on it every once in a while.

    Everyone pays taxes:  the rich pay income taxes, the middle class pays sales taxes, and the poor play the lottery--which helps them to stay poor.
