Don’t buy the Windows Store version of Infinite Warfare if you want to play with other people

For years, it’s been nearly a given that the Xbox, Sony, and PC versions of a game all use separate servers, with their own playerbases. While there have been a handful of exceptions, most games segment each console and PCs into their own sandboxes.

Valve to crack down on fake screenshots in Steam

EVGA GTX 1080s and 1070s allegedly exploding due to improper VRM cooling

Most of the time, which OEM you choose to buy a GPU from isn’t seen as having a huge impact on the performance of the card, though added value and included goodies often vary between manufacturers. Every now and then, however, design differences between companies do play out in a more significant way, and that may be what has happened to EVGA and its GTX 1080 and 1070 lineups.
