If I ever start critiquing whatevers, I'm pretty sure I'll be using my own proprietary 3-stars system.

1: sub-par

2: decent

3: recommended

Anything more specific than that is nonsense since personal tastes vary so wildly... people who want more info to go on should read the bloody review.

I don't use a headset, I use headphones and a cheap microphone. I recently upgraded from Panasonic HTF600s to Sennheiser HD 558s. I do have one headset, the official PS3 headset, but it's a piece of crap that I'd get rid of if my monitor had HDMI and headphone jacks.

This is the way to go. 'Gaming' headsets are nonsense... get a cheap clip-on mic and some proper headphones.

I don't really understand how compatibility with your motherboard can be the problem, 5yo or not. The things you list (GPU, PSU and SSD) should fit on pretty much everything.

Also, why change the PSU? Does it not work well?

As for Gerrard, the coverage in England is crazy, you'd think the bloke had died the amount of news reports on him, he's off to the MLS for money and money alone!

As a Dutchman who watches his entire league bought dry every single year I think it's hilarious to see the English complaining about that.

It's not the same (almost the opposite in fact) and I don't think anybody is complaining about it in the sense that he's been lured elsewhere 'for the money'. He's only leaving because Liverpool (correctly, imo) don't think he's good enough to be starting in the EPL every week anymore, not because he's chasing some big pay day in MLS. Gerrard in his prime could have walked away from Liverpool in pursuit of more money and trophies and had his pick of any club in the world, but he never did.

Players go from the Dutch league to the English/Spanish/German leagues because they are a step up in every respect. They only go to MLS when they can no longer hack it at the highest level. As it is, Liverpool can't guarantee Gerrard a start and LA Galaxy are prepared to pay top dollar for past-it but famous players, so win-win for everybody.

I don't disagree. It's just sad that we have no way of catching up. More money = better players = better competition = better players again... so even if our Dutch youngsters aren't sell-outs they'll still end up in foreign leagues because every sportsman wants to play at the highest level. It's all connected.

Unless we get another miracle generation like Ajax had in 1995 (who should've won the world cup in 1998... but that wound'll never heal) maybe we can incidentally do some damage in the Champions League. For now, simply getting out of the group stage or qualifying at all is a huge achievement.

@bisonhero: That's a crossbow if I'm not mistaken... hardly the same thing.

You can become a pretty badass archer in the Elder Scrolls games... so there's Skyrim and Oblivion. Besides those, Thief seems to be the definitive answer to me.

Ubisoft PC games have always been awful; I'm getting Far Cry 4 on the PS4.

Yes. Sub par ports at best. With or without uPlay.

Making the same joke on different websites feels kinda wrong, not sure why. But there you go.
