    Old World: A Civ-Like 4X game

    I caught wind of this game about two weeks ago. The game is being made by Mohawk Games (Offworld Trading Company) and headed by the lead designer for Civilization 4. Looks like it focuses purely on ancient civilizations and tries to retool how unit orders get assigned, turning movement points...

    Gigabyte X470 Aorus won't post with any BIOS overclock

    I have a Gigabyte X470 Aorus and a Ryzen 2700... I'm trying to get an OC going on this setup and my board won't have anything to do with it. All I'm attempting to do is a small uptick to voltages and then raise CPU multiplier. If I raise it, to any value, the system won't post. If I overclock...

    New(ish) to AMD, having issues with Freesync

    The last AMD video card I owned was a 5850, so it's been some time since I've dealt with them. I have been running a G-Sync monitor for as long as they've been a thing, and that's kept me on team green. I recently picked up an ultra wide and decided it wasn't worth the extra cost for G-Sync...

    Looking for good Xbox 360 games for an 8 year old

    My 8 year old nephew is just started to get into video games. Over the past year or so he started playing Minecraft, and that's basically all he'd talk about, but he didn't play any other games. He's at my house every day for an hour or two until his Dad can pick him up, so I set up an old 360...

    Shenmue I & II coming to Steam

    Exceptionally excited to see this announced this evening. I especially like that they mention an updated UI and an option for modern controls. Those are the two most dated aspects of these classics. Hopefully they get this released before Shenmue III, I'd love to replay them one more time before...

    Cursor jumping around while typing, anyone else?

    Every time I post on [H], my cursor likes to jump around while typing. I'll be mid-sentence and all the sudden I'm typing a few words back. Hitting backspace seems to worsen the issue. Sometimes it deletes the last character, sometimes it just jumps back several. This has been going on for maybe...

    Upgrade options for 980 SLI at 4k?

    I'm currently running a pair of 980 SC cards in SLI. I use my desktop for two different applications. Gaming at my desk at 1440p on a 144hz monitor. The other is for 4K on my TV. These two cards do just fine at my desktop, but I'm not getting satisfactory results at 4k. Recent titles that come...

    Ready or Not: a new tactical FPS

    http://voidinteractive.net/developer-blog-01-teaser-and-beyond/ Came across this today. They're calling it a CQB tactical shooter. Looks a little "hollywood" but if they capture the gameplay of of SWAT or old school RS, they can make it as bloody as they please. I'm going to be keeping a...

    How do I properly set up NV Surround in Windows 8.1?

    I've got three planar displays, as shown in sig. Previously I was using them with a single GTX 680. I used two over DVI, one over HDMI, all I could do with my single card.
