With some friends and my wife, we have had drinking parties while we chat on mumble watching friends play games. We can't all be together so this lets us share the experience. Its also good for showing friends games you are trying to get them play but they live in another city. I won't say its not a niche, but Its a useful one for me.

I agree, he is talking about PC gaming in the 90's or something. I usually buy mid range video cards and I can easily skip a generation of video cards or two and still play everything with max settings. I don't play every triple AAA title for pc but I play enough to know my pc never has a problem. My wifes PC has an amd 6800 card which is almost 5 years old and it plays most games maxed out. final fantasy 14 is a pretty intense game, the 6800 plays it at max settings/1080p no problem.

+ - Slashdot Beta: Because They Hate You 3

boolithium (1030728) writes "People on here are missing the point of the Beta roll out. The elimination of the existing user base is not a side effect, it is a feature. Slashdot as a brand has value, but as a site has limited commercial appeal. The users are the kids at the lunch table, where not even the foreign exchange students want to sit. Nobody ever got laid from installing NetBSD.

Once they are finished with their nerd cleansing, they can build a new Slashdot. A sexier Slashdot. A Slashdot the kids can dance to.

They aren't ignoring you. They are exterminating you."

+ - /. Beta comments don't work, users upset.-> 4

magic maverick (2615475) writes "Since the new /. Beta came to light, many /. users and commentators have tried it out. However, they are almost universally condemning the new commenting system. It simply isn't as good as the so called Classic system. Some users, however, haven't a bad thing to say. Mainly because they haven't had a chance to even use the new system. It simply doesn't load. One user, Magic Maverick , who lives in a third-world country with crappy Internet, had this to say:

I come to /. for the comments, but with the new Beta, I can't even see anything! It just says:

''Shazbot! We ran into some trouble getting the comments. Try again... na-nu, na-nu!

It seems like the "developers" need to take some advice from people who actually know what they are doing. I'm happy to help explain what graceful degradation means if they like...

+ - Dice Holdings, Inc, deleting unflattering stories from Slashdot firehose 4

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Stories submitted to the Slashdot firehose that take a negative view on the site's redesign are being deleted. 4 hours ago, it was full of anti-beta posts. Now they are gone. That's right. A forum that usually leaves V14GRA spam in place for posterity is deleting user content."
