    Don't see any connection between D3 and PUBG but if I had a full-time sidekick I'd be playing PUBG for sure - not seen Squad mode so can't comment on how that is...

    D3 - to me - is the antithesis...

    I too am now Necromancer'd up - I was shocked to discover I've been out of D3 for almost 2 years, but that means I can relax and enjoy it again with no pressure to level-up fast etc.

    I emphasise that the work XP PC has no Internet connection - it's only connected to the CCTV and runs software installed locally only.

    In other news, this laptop's CMOS battery is dead, which is probably why it's moody about booting (having to redetect everything, every time it's powered-on) -...

    We have an XP laptop at work which serves 2 important purposes.

    1 - it can display the CCTV system's web interface which uses COM (requires IE 8 or earlier and all security options disabled!!)

    One possible reason to keep it - it has both a serial AND parallel socket as well as 4 USB (1.1) sockets - it's a weird hybrid in that way (the PCMCIA obviously enables allsorts of other stuff too)

    This thing came with/runs XP so it's "relatively modern" in architecture terms
    e.g. it would have almost as many problems running a DOS game as any modern PC would??

  9. A trip to the past - a laptop repair from another era...

    Earlier this week I was given a laptop to see if it could be put to any use.

    It's an Acer Travelmate 240 - early Celeron, 1.24Gb RAM, Windows XP - that means it's from 2006-or-earlier but the fact...

    I never thought they'd emulate PS3/PS4, that's a LOT of work they didn't need to do when they can fab unlimited PS3/PS4 hardware setups streaming game media in and audio/video out to stream.

  13. PS Now on PC - anyone else tried it/interested in it?

    After the front page article which mentioned the 7 day trial (CC required) I thought I'd throw caution to the wind (handing-over a CC to Sony!!) and try it.

    It surprised me in a few ways - my...

    I'd like to say I'm playing a Necromancer in D3 but 12.99 ($15.99) for a class and some cosmetic tat is just a bit - erm - gauling?

    I'd hoped for 9.99 - I guess if the bigots hadn't voted to...

    I'm only a couple-of-hours in and it seems to have a lot of content - obviously some more developed than others.
