Hotline Miami: Critical Analysis Doing reviews and analyses of specific games is kind of out of form for Problem Machine, but I seem to be doing it a lot nowadays regardless. The thing is, I’ve been playing these games and they’re just too damn exciting, they set my brain on fire with new ideas for things to talk about it and the most logical way to talk about all of these disparate ideas is to talk about the games themselves. So: Why fight it?

16 PC Mysteries Solved! Why does my Windows desktop look weird on my HDTV? It can be terribly frustrating to run a cable from a good HDTV to a PC graphics board and get skewed proportions, faded colors, and slightly blurry images. Your HDTV might not perform well as a monitor for several reasons. First, many HDTVs aren't designed to display fine details (such as text and lines) at close distances, but to display smooth motion and vibrant colors from distances of up to 5 feet away.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 ignored 2017’s biggest trends, and that’s why it’s great I am compelled, for professional and self-indulgent reasons, to play every “great” game in existence, and thus I have become a skilled juggler of platforms and genres. In 2017, I juggled my ass off. PC, Switch, Xbox One, PS4, VR, mobile — every platform in my collection was occupied by an army of best-in-class games from developers large and small. Figuring out which game to play became less like juggling and more like a daily battle royale for my attention. The frequent king of the hill, and my personal game of the year for 2017, was Divinity: Original Sin 2, or DOS2, a PC-only “CRPG” (computer role-playing game) of the isometric Fallout variety. This is an unconventional choice.

'King of Kong' star stripped of high scores, banned from competition Famed high-score gamer Billy Mitchell, best known for his leading role in "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" documentary, was officially stripped of his "Donkey Kong" and other video game high scores and banned from submitting scores to the world's largest tracker of video game world records following a decision that he cheated, Twin Galaxies announced today. "With this ruling, Twin Galaxies can no longer recognize Billy Mitchell as the first million point 'Donkey Kong' record holder," the group wrote in its announcement. "According to our findings, Steve Wiebe would be the official 1st million point record holder." Variety has reached out to Mitchell and Wiebe for comment and Guinness to see if his record there will stand. The decision comes after months of research by the administrators of Twin Galaxies, which tracks world gaming records and helps the Guinness Book of World records validate gaming scores, according to a statement released by the group Thursday morning.

Things Every Computer Geek Should Know. « Arrow Webzine The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field. A geek is one who isn’t satisfied knowing only the surface facts, but instead has a visceral desire to learn everything possible about a particular subject.
