    That Norwegian Guy got a reaction from dimitridev in The most pirated TV show of 2015 was ..... Game of Thrones?   
    Eh, no.
     
    8.1 million people watch it legally in the USA
    14.4 million watch it illegally worldwide
     
    Huge distinction. GoT is licensed to networks in 170 countries.
     
    In reality, even a show this highly pirated is probably around not more than 5% piracy all included.

    The game is Natural Selection 2 if you were wondering, and the funky colours is alien heatvision.

    Only one on that list I'd avoid is Razer. Mostly because they are designed to break just after warranty wears off. Junk.

    It's neat and shit, but it can't replace my Phanteks Mini XL, not even functionally.

    This, PoE is a phenomenal game with the most ethical microtransactions ever seen in games.
    There are some unfortunate sides, mainly design language inconsistency issues, lying tooltips, obtuse not-as-described formulas happening in the background of how stats work and interact, shining through that GGG's designers are more amateur than pro in some ways. But the game deserves credit for its solidity and value.
     
    If you give PoE a try, try to use a cookie cutter build made by someone experienced on your first character because diving blind into the passive tree is a bad idea (look for low-budget builds on their forum)
    The game may look like it's about freedom, given the vastness of its options, but that is all a trap. You need to reach survivability thresholds to have any hope of cracking the endgame. For example, the game lets you dual-wield weapons, but unless you're extremely rich you can't pull it off. It needs very specific stat stacking like life leech, life gain on hit, and life gain on kill to work and even then you're excluded from the spikiest single-target boss fights of the endgame.
     
    It's not a hard game to play however, as long as your build is suitable. A very good turn-off-your-brain, enjoyable kind of game.

    That Norwegian Guy got a reaction from TheNewPCMan in What games?   
    Rocket League if you have a 144hz+ monitor.
     
    Metro 2033 and Last Light Redux if you want a story based shooter.
     
    We're pretty thin on multiplayer shooters worth playing, there's Overwatch which isn't exactly graphically intensive, and that new Quake game that's coming out in a bit (it's in closed beta now)
     
    As mentioned above, War Thunder is free and can look damn beautiful on maxed settings with high frame rates. Especially the tank side of the game has some nice tricks up its graphical sleeve. Just be prepared for learning curve, when in doubt stay with teammates.

    That Norwegian Guy got a reaction from JuztBe in Grinding Gear Games potential data breach (Path of Exile)   
    The bigger the fish the likelier the target. The recently over-performing (in Steam charts) Path of Exile and its developer Grinding Gear Games may have been the target of an on-site data access by an uninvited party spanning a whopping 10 days. It is unknown what, if anything, the would-be infiltrator made away with.
     

    Hopefully cracking these passwords will be at least as difficult as creating a worthwhile character build in the notoriously deep ARPG.
     
    GGG assures us that its passwords are stored both salted (the process of adding a unique string to each password) then hashed, and it would take years or even decades to brute force strong passwords - and rather worryingly - days or weeks to crack a weak one. If you're the type of person to make your passwords "QWERTY12345" or similarly anemic strings, it would be wise to change it. It wouldn't be unwise for anyone to change it however, strong or not.
     
    Other things that could have been breached are things like IP addresses of recently active players, and physical addresses of people who had physical products shipped to them.
     
    Another juicy target at GGG; although this is my own input and not that of GGG's announcement, would be any inside scoops about its upcoming giga-update, promising a 2.5X multiplication of the games content. The game will by the end of the year be expanded to 10 acts compared to the current 4, which has a lot of people interested (as recent Steam charts will attest to)
