    It's really brutal heading back in after a long break. Your secret matchmaking MMR is still at the level when you left so the first 30-40 games may well be complete trash until things even out and yo...

    Walked into my local retailer at time of opening, no lines. Purchased Switch, no pre-order. Life is pretty easy down under.

  • MasterpinE posted a message in the forum topic Which part were they referring to on the bombcast? (spoilers). on the Titanfall 2 board

    I'm normally a pretty cynical and jaded gamer. The slow reveal of what was going on during the time level was great and when you finally get the button prompt "Press X to time travel" i just stared at...

  • MasterpinE posted a message in the forum topic Titanfall 2 - Impressions. on the Titanfall 2 board

    On PC at least, using Ion's shoulder laser thing to snipe pilots is... almost too easy. It's a Quake 3 Arena railgun and it feels so good. You don't even have to charge it up much, one tap at any ran...

    Been running SLI with 8800GTX's, GTX480's and now GTX780's...Don't. Never SLI. Don't buy a weak card and plan to buy a second card to make things better. Don't buy two top of the line cards for that ...

    Was getting some crazy flashbacks to early Rift DK2 performance during the stream. It took a few months of firmware updates to get the tracking better but it was never quite perfect. Considering the D...

  • MasterpinE posted a message on the post VRodeo 04: Raw Data, Edge of Nowhere, and More.

    Raw Data is dope, been playing with random people quite a bit. It's still super early but the fundamentals of it are great. There are games with better shooting and input feedback but as a whole it's ...

    Doggcatcher has worked great for me for years. It's a paid app but it is well supported.

    Played all weekend solo, with a buddy joining only to go through the story PvE stuff. Had been hugely skeptical about this game, because on paper it sounded pretty damn compelling but you know, long d...

    Every receiver will have it's little quirks. I have an older model of that Yamaha you're looking at and just feed it PCM from the HTPC. Unless you've gone out and dropped massive bank on speakers you'...

  • MasterpinE posted a message in the forum topic Question about building a PC. on the PC board

    @Mike: I was referring to the pre-treatment of the heatsink for the credit card bit. If you're not going to go to the effort of lapping the heatsink, it's a good move to pop a tiny bit of thermal past...

  • MasterpinE posted a message in the forum topic Question about building a PC. on the PC board

    A small pea sized amount is fine. You'll get different answers from different people, everyone kinda has their own way of applying paste. Too much thermal paste isn't a huge deal, it's just really mes...

    Yeah damn good race that. Thrilled for Nico and Mark, 2016's season should be a belter with new Toyota's, possibly new Audi's and Ford coming back into it. WEC are putting out a pretty great package.
