Regardless of how old it may be the Core2 architecture is anything but retro. It is more or less the same thing as Intel 10th Gen Core CPUs with less cores and clockspeed. An E6600 from 2006 runs Windows 10 just fine today. I know, because I am setting up a Win98/Win7 dual boot on an E6600 these …

After 100%'in Pillars of eternity, I got started on Tyranny. It's not the instant love affair I thought it would be, but that is partly duet o playing a character that I did not turn out to enjoy much thematically. I will reserve my judgement until after restarting with a new character..

Even Doom was/is better. Even DOOM? Duke3D, Blood, etc are good but DOOM is pure distilled awesome. I loaded up Shadow Warrior last night for the first time in a while and geez it sounds good, it looks good, but I just can't stand that game for some reason. Shadow Warrior is incredibly annoying in …
