    I'm not sure there is a large drop in quality in terms of those core articles, but it is getting drowned by drivel. Five posts per day is enough, like the old days when RPS was still cool ;)....

    Your present PC is obviously fine, unless you have cash to burn or offload, and you can find a new home for your current build. Why not wait another two years? I am only upgrading my 2009 PC now with...

    I have quite a few single player games on steam but I DO still finish them (STALKER etc., long games in M2TW), only it might take me years to find the right moment. I avoid buying more than two or...

    Aye, this is likely to be where Win 9 is going and where Win 8 was expected to deliver. However, 8.1 is far more consumer oriented than 7. For example the language used to notify users is highly...

    Look back at the sky where it came from and it disappears! I get this all the time and I flick my view to the sky for a second or two and it goes. Performance-wise, chivalry runs just fine on my old...

    I'd like to try WoTR to compare, but all I can say is Chivalry is probably the best competitive multiplayer game I have played in many many years. It also depends on whether you will like the...

    True, only that the game is an official (re)remake of an existing game owned by the same company. Ideally, they should customise the PC version further so that it has ticks all the 1.6 boxes AND adds...
