Perception Bias

 

The majority of gamers that use a PC to play and that use dedicated cards (not on die) are the mass majority. And generally use cards sub $150 in price of the year/month they bought it.

 

The mass majority majority of gamers that use a PC to play through the STEAM service and many other, are running computers with on-die dedicated chips, of which most are the INTEL HD or AMD equivalent. 

 

And then comes a schiit ton of 'gaming laptops' with the M series GPU's on those lists before we get to desktop enthusiast rigs playing games on rigs with post $200 GPU's. 

 

 

I'm being decently specific as this realm is so wide. Almost everyone that owns a PC can be considered a PC Gamer. Some posts about PC not being dead by enthusiasts that use numbers from companies that include farmville etc as PC gaming are why I try to be specific a bit. 

 

But seriously, we are in the far far few here. 

 

Last I checked, the current statistic for PC Gamers in the world stood at 10 million. The statistic wasn't in depth enough to note if that accounted for casual PC Gamers or enthusiast enthusiasts. 

 

But all in all, not a very large amount. And of those, many more don't have uber rigs.

There has gotta be heaps more than just 10 million, since WoW alone used to have >10M active subscriptions.

That's the thing, what is counted as a PC gamer. I'm not sure if they were going by PC Enthusiasts that did uber stuff etc.

Anybody interested in Payday 2 Four Pack?

 

$4.5 each instead of $6 I guess :/

 

If I can get 3 more, I'll buy it and what not.

I've played one game for over 36 hours and
my K/D Ratio is Barely 0.50. It is a hard game I'm trying to master with people pumping massive hours into it (America's Army: Proving Grounds). But at least for every time I get revived I give a revive!

One of the ****tiest articles I've read recently. Full of crap analyzation. 

 

One Such Rationale below:

Wargaming makes F2P games so in the scenario that it buys Crytek, there won't be anymore SP games

 

 

And another of the overblowing of Crytek's financial chagrins. It's bad, but they are making it sound like Crytek is THQ.

okay this is a silly question. but i genuinely dont know.

 

just now while listening to my headphone, i feel one side is more hollow and less loud than the other. i'd like to check for channel imbalance. i just searched on head-fi a bit just now, and some threads / posters suggest to change the audio from stereo to mono, and go from there.

 

my question is... how to change the sound from stereo to mono on windows 8...?

 

ps: i hvn't google anything yet, i did try to look for it on my windows 8 pc by myself just now for around ~5-10 mins but cant find it. and figure id ask here now...

 

cheers :D

First things first

 

Wear the headphones backwards (right ear with left headphone etc) and see if the effects are the same.

 

Often times, it's a placebo effect caused by temporary sickness (which affects hearing and that sector), pressure imbalance in a ear due to various reasons, or a temporary mental thing.

 

I've had it happen to me many times.

Didn't know Android Silver was a thing. That is one beautiful render though. Would absolutely buy that if Google would stop refusing to include expandable storage (although their reason is understandable).
