    So I saw a Youtube video on this game and was personally amazed by it. First thing I'll say about it is that it's completely free to play and it's created by students attending DigiPen. Basically the game is a mindblowing, first person, puzzle game that uses different 3D perspectives to...

    Building custom desktop

    So basically, my sister wants (desperately needs) a new computer to run Photoshop, do some video editing/rendering, and light gaming off of. And since I'm the most computer savvy person in my whole extended family she asked me to help her with it (build it for her). She's upgrading from a...

    This actually came up in another thread so I thought I would just make a new one to explain what this program does. Launchy is basically a search box that you can bring up with a simple user set keyboard hotkey. The gist of it is that you can type in any website, file, program, or directory...

    Old man's comic

    This was posted a few years ago on another forums I regularly visit. I don't know why but I just remembered it so I went back and looked for it and decided to post it here. It's a pretty good read if I do say so myself.

    New Nvidia drivers

    The newest Nvidia drivers came out several weeks ago but I seem to have missed them... Anyway, I got them last night and after playing some D3 and LoL I noticed a huge performance increase over the older version. I don't know what they did, but I sure am glad...

    Strange things about Alienware screens.

    I noticed that if you look through some Imax glasses at your Alienware (I only know it to work with the M14x) you get a wierd image on the left glass. I just figured that it had something to do with the screen of the M14x since it doesn't do this with any other screen I've found in my house.

    What tech gizmos did you get for the holidays?

    The only one of note that I got was a 2nd Gen Kindle Fire 7". However, I also got some Amazon Gift Cards so I'm sending it back for a Kindle Fire HD 8.9". And I'll probably be rooting it when I get it =).

    Nvidia Surround for M14x?

    I'm just wondering if it's possible to use the program or a program like it to utilize multiple screens when gaming. From what I understand you had to have a desktop with two GPUs in sli. But that was back in 2010 and I was wondering if it was possible to do it now with a laptop.

    GT 555M problem when playing Minecraft

    I've had no trouble with my GPU before today. It's never gotten too hot and has always provided great graphics and good fps on pretty much anything I play. But for some reason when I try playing Minecraft today it automatically underclocks itself and the game fps lags. It doesn't do this with...

    List of free to play games.

    So I was looking around the web and I decided it would be nice to compile a list of free to play/download games that everyone could enjoy. Games like League of Legends or ARMA2-Free are examples and I just wanted to know if anyone else knew of any they could contribute.

    What antivirus software do you use?

    I use Microsoft Security Essentials which, in my personal opinion, is the best because it gives the same coverage of all the other big name securities. It never false reads files I've download as viruses; it updates automatically and stops any viruses you do encounter for you. It's designed by...

    What movie did you just see?

    When ever you watch a movie post it here! I just watched Cowboys and Aliens on DirectTV Cinemax. James Bond, number 13 from House, and Indiana Jones; what more could you ask for.

    So I finally got the Tekkit pack working (kept getting inventory issues) and was wondering if anyone else plays it? Or if someone wants to start a server to see if we can play together (my internet isn't the best for hosting a server).

    The strangest thing just happened...

    So I shut down my M14x after a while of gaming to let it cool down and when I started it up again everything was slow and sluggish. After I managed to get task manager running and some other monitoring software up I noticed that the resource monitory said that four of the CPUs (threads) where...

    Organized Gaming Team?

    I'm not sure if this is really feedback but, does anyone else think it would be cool to form a team of gamers from the site to compete in various games? It would be cool if we could compete in tournaments as a site (if that makes any sense).

    So I wanted to record a lets play for Minecraft to upload to the AWO YouTube channel but I think it would be more interesting if there where more people. So would anyone want to join me? My internet isn't the greatest so it would be great if someone else could host the server but I would if I...
