    It's happening for me too, I'd imagine it's happening for everyone.

    It looks like the home page is now only displaying news posts, nothing else.

    It may well be unrelated, but it seems to have...

    Dear God, the Abomination has been fixed; it now sits under the content, where it's meant to go. Big thanks to whoever took care of it.

    Pretty sure it's the adblock - I don't get any of the Outbrain guff when I'm on a desktop browser with UBlock.

    They really are disgusting, I can't quite shake the feeling it's incredibly...

    You missed my point - using Outbrain, anywhere, shows not just a disrespect for your readership, but for the human race as a whole. I'm still beyond disappointed they use it on this site.

    As for...

    Nobody is, they use Outbrain.

    I did like to try and keep RPS whitelisted but I'm finding it increasingly hard to justify as there's been a noticeable increase in both quantity and general...
  6. Civ VI ad is destroying mobile browsing experience.

    The sloppy attempt at parallax scrolling means the background image hijacks my entire browser window on Chrome mobile; on every fucking article. The only way I'm able to read a damned thing is by...

    Tried using Steam streaming for the first time recently and it worked fine, down to being able to use a controller in a non-Steam game. This was onto a laptop using an HD-4000, but you won't need...

    Christ, this tired merry-go-round yet again?

    There is no such thing as games "journalism". There never was. It is, and always has been, an industry entirely based around people farting out their...

    Damn you Paul, stop being so nice & reasonable - it's much harder to hate you this way (I can see why you got the job).

    In all honesty, I think you nailed it with the dirty "F" word. I'm quite...

    Paul, you sound like a nice chap, so I'm sorry if this comes across as overly harsh, but the ads have become increasingly intrusive over the last year or so.

    I appreciate you looking into these...

    I've donated in the past, and I've always kept ad-block off on the site (Outbrain crap an exception).

    This is the first time I've ever seen an auto-playing video here, RPS is now on my blacklist....

    Probably, but we aren't there yet and I wouldn't recommend it to someone who already isn't so sure about building their own machine. Big difference between a fairly easy to assemble pre-picked kit...

    Water cooling, at least on the CPU, and so long as you won't be going SLI one of the dual-fan GPU models such as ASUS' DCII or similar.

    That said, although I'm glad I made the switch from air...

    Okay then...

    Given you're generally one of the most caustic, impolite people on this forum, and allowing that I'm more than a touch drunk: how does that actually answer the question? Guy sounds...

    Re. Asus drivers - the drivers definitely come laden with bloatware, but in every case I've experienced (and I've used all Asus in all my builds for years) the drivers themselves can easily be...

    It undoubtedly does in most games, but for the most part I find when I'm engrossed in playing it becomes barely noticeable (can be nice if you're just standing around looking at stuff though). I'm...

    The only two games I played recently (as far as I can remember) that were PhysX enabled were Arkham City and Planetside 2. The only difference I actually noticed between having it on or off in either...

    You'll need to be a bit more specific than 'Windows'. Windows itself doesn't detect viruses, so it's got to be some other software running on the machine. Which virus checker are you using?

    Aye, PhysX only works on NVIDIA cards. It isn't that AMD's can't do GPU physics calculations, it's that anything that specifically states 'PhysX' in the options menu is using proprietary NVIDIA tech,...

    It might well have been a bug on the squad screen, I just noticed the "Private Squad" box was ticked even though recruitment was enabled. Glad it picked up though, sorry I couldn't stick around.

    Tips on leading a pub squad

    Despite putting it off since beta, a couple of friends joining finally convinced me to bite the bullet and join the outfit yesterday. Glad I did, good banter from the get-go, with just the right mix...
