    The Best Gaming Monitor? One Week Living With the Acer XB280HK 4K G-Sync …

    May 13th, 2015

    If youre looking for the best gaming monitor, a 4K display is now a must-have. While 4K TV struggles (Bask in the glory of House of Cards and Daredevil in Netflix 4K and…and…?, the world all too painfully aware that even two years after the screen technology came to prominence, theres still naff-all TV or movie content taking advantage of it), its another story entirely on PC. Console players may wet themselves over anything that can manage to hit 1080p resolutions at 60fps, but PC players are boldly going where few have before, pushing rigs to the limits of their 4K potential. If youre looking for the very best gaming monitor, youre going to want to have that 4K spec-sheet box ticked.

    Will NVIDIA Corporation Stock Benefit from 4K Gaming?

    May 13th, 2015

    During NVIDIAs (NASDAQ: NVDA) most recent earnings call, company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talked about a number of growth drivers for PC gaming and, by extension, demand for its high-performance gaming-focused graphics processors.

    One thing that stood out to me is that Huang was quite upbeat about the shift to 4K gaming as a factor that could drive an uplift in the companys core gaming graphics processor business. Lets take a look at what Huang had to say and see if we can back his claims up with some hard numbers.

    Understanding what drives the need for more performance
    NVIDIA, and really any vendor of graphics processors into just about any computing market, benefits when its customers...

    Marissa Hall | Shale Plays Media

    The online gaming community might hold a well of untapped potential for the oil and gas industry.

    The Offshore Technology Conference launched its new d5 campaign at the University of Houston on Friday.

One of those speakers was Jane McGonigal, a game developer and author who believes gaming can and should have immense real-world applications.

    Unscripted: Cher, Tom Jones, Dobie Gray, Cat Stevens take a trip home

    May 12th, 2015

    I spent a lot of last weekend driving to and from Pittsburgh, where I grew up.

    I was visiting family and hanging out at my old haunts, remembering what it was like to be young.

    My trip had to have a soundtrack, of course, so I brought along my slim, pink iPod, loaded with hundreds of songs.

    Now some people might put new songs and albums on their iPods, but not me. It’s a nostalgia machine for me.

    So most of the music I listened to in my car was from the 1970s, when I was a teenager and hanging on to every word Cat Stevens uttered and every new single Elton John or Yes or Carole King released.

    I remember reading the lyrics and credits in every album...

    Demise of Silent Hills Proves Gaming Has a Preservation Crisis

    May 12th, 2015

    To paraphrase a spooky phrase from Konamis classic Silent Hill 2, there was a game here. Its gone now. That game was PT

    Not only did Konami remove PT, the playable teaser for Silent Hills, from the PlayStation 4s online store last month, the Japanese publisher outright wiped the game from Sonys servers. So,if you delete the game to make room for more digital goods on your PS4, you can never get it back. Nobody can ever download it again. Konami has digitallymurdered a work of art.

    This is a tremendous shame because even though it was an elaborate ad for Silent Hills, PT was one of the best games of 2014 and one of the best things to come out of Konami in years. But Silent Hills,...

    Artist Elevates Paint Swatches To The Level Of Fine Art, Tickles Color Nerds …

    May 9th, 2015

    Paint chips are usually found at home improvement stores, packed into a small herd and fanned out for customers to peruse and take home at will. Someday, some of them may dictate the exact hues of our most intimate spaces — our bedrooms, our kitchen walls, our bathroom ceilings. But until then, they float in a strange space of indeterminacy, free of cost and packed with potential.

    Denver-based artist Shawn Huckins found unlikely inspiration in these mundane color swatches. He first stumbled upon their beauty while working on an experimental painting. I was having difficulties figuring out which color tone to use for the background, he said, so I taped some Behr paint cards to the canvas...
