The Great Cpu War Of 2018

So you want to build that perfect gaming PC you’ve been dreaming and saving up for? Well, I hope you still have some patience left, because you’ll probably be waiting on your shiny new graphics card for a little while. For the past few weeks, there has been a new shortage of GPUs and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to end anytime soon.

With the recent surge in cryptocurrency this past December, a new surge of crypto miners has been purging major retailers shelves of their precious graphics cards. The reason being is that in order for them to mine that digital gold, they need a beefy computer to do so, which in turn jacks up the prices of GPUs. Production of these cards just can’t keep up with the new demand, leaving a lot of non-miners put out and waiting to build or upgrade their PC.

How bad is it?
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 back in April was as low as $200, but now you can’t even find it through most retailers and...

You would think the lessons learned from Destiny 1, Bungie would know how to provide players with a polished and complete gaming experience. However, it appears even after the release of Destiny 2’s first DLC content Bungie is still blissfully ignorant. While the popular title was the best selling game in September of 2017, the apparent effect of the incomplete hodgepodge Destiny 2 has turned out to have steadily decreased in momentum. What has caused such a potentially great game to fall short of expectations amongst gamers? Here’s my take on personal experience and observations.

One of the biggest and most influential reasons players might have an adverse reaction to Destiny 2 is the way Bungie has set up microtransactions. While this system isn’t nearly as bad as some “pay to win” scandals, like the recent Battlefield II...
The Story Behind Mass Effect: Andromeda's Troubled Five-Year Development

In 2012, as work on Mass Effect 3 came to a close, a small group of top BioWare employees huddled to talk about the next entry in their epic sci-fi franchise. Their goal, they decided, was to make a game about exploration—one that would dig into the untapped potential of the first three games. Instead of visiting just a few planets, they said, what if you could explore hundreds?

Five years later, it’s hard to find anyone who’s happy with the results. Mass Effect: Andromeda, released in March 2017, disappointed even the biggest fans of BioWare’s longrunning series. The game was widely pilloried, with critics slamming its uneven writing, frequent bugs, and meme-worthy animations (although our own review was just lukewarm). The PS4 version of Andromeda has a 70% on Metacritic, lower than any BioWare game...
