How many times do we 'hipsters' need to be totally let down by a software company before caution about their future products is seen as rational rather than hip? Is the magic number 5? 9? Perhaps 21?…

The hype around Max Payne had washed over me by the time the last Steam sale came along. Since I'm partial to the odd good shooter (I loved Bad Company 2), I thought MP3 must be worth $10. Well,…

Sorry just to supplement that - I'm not saying that you won't notice any FPS difference at all with a top CPU. It will be something like 3-4 FPS (except maybe Rome II) compared to the CPU that's say,…
