HP Omen X Emperium 65 BFGD review

I will never be able to afford the HP Omen X Emperium 65 monitor. Marketing quibbles aside, because it's a "BFGD," or Big Format Gaming Display , the HP Omen X Emperium is no stranger to Nvidia. So what's the appeal of the HP Omen X Emperium 65? If I had it, I could buy the HP Omen X Emperium 65, the only Nvidia BFGD in existence right now. In that case, I regret to inform you the HP Omen X Emperium 65 flounders in that regard, too.

D&D and back again: How two ex-BioWare directors are returning to their roots

For two senior developers who left one of the world's best-known video game studios, it was a matter of creative survival – and proving that returning to your inspiration doesn't mean regressing. It was technically BioWare's second project after Shattered Steel (a mech combat game), but Baldur's Gate was the first BioWare game. And yes, even famously Knights of the Old Republic uses the stat and level system [from D&D]," Ohlen pauses, laughing. Satisfied, I ask him what BioWare game he'd choose

The service, which will go by the new name TVision, isn’t quite the same as a full-on streaming service – you’ll still need a box from T-Mobile to use it – but it could be a more manageable step for folks looking to cut the cord. That monthly fee will get you around 150 channels per month, but you'll still have to pay additional fees for premium channels like HBO and Showtime. That said, there are some edges TVision has over Netflix and others, according to T-Mobile. The company won't change you
