  1. No. The original 3 movies are groundbreaking classics in a myriad ways and they hold up perfectly even today. I know this not because I myself still watch them from time to time and love them, but because I have friends who have watched them for the first time with me and loved the crap out of them while hating the prequels. If you think the original trilogy is on the same quality level as the Disney movies, let alone the prequels, I got some bad news about your taste in movies.
  2. All the articles & videos about Ryzen 3 2200g overclocking I've seen are doing the whole "budget cooler overclocking" shtick and/or just turboing the Ryzen to 4GHz tops. But how far can I reasonably overclock this thing with an aftermarket cooler? I have a Noctua NH-U14S. Can it be pushed to 4.5GHz and beyond, or is there some limiter I'm unaware of? Thanks.
  3. The prequel trilogy is the worst trash ever shoehorned into a great franchise. Episode 3 is one of the worst movies of all time. Saying it's the best of the prequels is like saying at least skin cancer isn't as bad as pancreatic. The only good thing that came out of those movies is RedLetterMedia's Mr.Plinket reviews.
  4. I was like 6 or 7 and it was Commander Keen on a computer at my dad's (old) firm.
  5. Gaming Operating system

    Windows 10 every day all the way.
  6. Is Razer really that bad

    I own a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Classic (the 1st one with blue LEDs only) and while I was disappointed at the build quality of the keycaps when I first got it, this keyboard has served me well for about 7 years now and has even survived (without any adverse effects) having a cup of coffee poured onto it. It's definitely a quality keyboard. That being said, if I was gonna buy a new mechanical keyboard now (or any new peripheral, really), I would go with Logitech, because you can't go wrong with Logitech.
  7. Overwatch's depth and complexity is underrated

    Overwatch is perfect in that it's easy to learn but insanely difficult to master. In addition to having most of the difficulty of a typical modern shooter, you also gotta learn teamwork if you want to compete at highest levels. Frankly, you'd have to be pretty dense (or salty) to say that Overwatch doesn't have depth and complexity. EDIT: In fact, this complexity is kinda its enemy. It's hard to watch for most people because it requires a ton of game knowledge to be able to follow a professional match.
  8. Thanks for the answers. The LEDs are cheap chinese ones I got from Ebay for like 4$ (they connect via molex) and the fan was likewise a cheap aliexpress option for like 6$.
  9. is it safe to uninstall xbox

    I uninstalled it on my laptop. No problem at all.
  10. Legal places to buy a win10 license for cheap?

    If it doesn't, you can always get a refund from ebay. As long as you pick a well-rated seller, it'll be fine.
  11. Steam is ridiculously outdated

    What rustles my jimmies is the inability to zoom and/or enlarge text in Steam, making reading the actual reviews and game descriptions and forums needlessly difficult. >_< That being said, Steam works fine for what it is.
  12. Alternatives to Windows 10

    Been using Win10 for some years now and I think it's the best OS MS has ever released. I've no idea what spamware the OP is talking about, and I don't even really know what Cortana is aside from vague things I've learned from hearsay because I disabled everything about it from day 1. I've never had Win10 install anything on my computer on its own. This may be because, the moment I got the Win10 free upgrade on my laptop (which was a huge improvement over the godawful 8.1), I followed the instructions in these two links: https://www.howtogeek.com/224798/how-to-uninstall-windows-10s-built-in-apps-and-how-to-reinstall-them/ https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-completely-disable-Windows-10-spying I also disabled nearly all graphical options in Win10 to make it easier for my crappy laptop to handle. Win10 is a great mainstream OS and you should seriously give it a chance, especially if you already managed to endure the awful Win8. The fact you don't even have to activate it to use it to its full potential (except for OS graphical options, but hey) means it's actually as cheap as linux.
  13. a legit way to get windows or other OS for light gaming

    You can get Windows 10 for free from Microsoft's website. If you don't activate it, it will have a watermark and not let you customize some appearance settings for Windows itself and occasionally nag you to go buy it, but otherwise it'll work perfectly fine forever. It's a great budget option and you can always buy a licence later.
  14. Wouldn't stop if I could

    It gets worse. First you get hooked on Linus, but then you watch scrapyard wars and you start experimenting with Paul, Jayz, and after that the spiral just keeps getting steeper.
  15. What advice would you give to someone younger than you?

    If you live in Serbia, get out while you're still young.
