Servers Shutdown // Nosgoth

As a habit I keep my large library of games installed and track updates as they come in via Steam. I thought I had noticed something about it before on RockPaperShotgun.com, and sure enough today there was an “update” to Nosgoth. I checked the Steam news feed for the game and confirmed that it is closing down its servers today, ending the game.

Boxed Samsung 28D590 UHD Monitor

On July 2nd I picked up a Samsung LU28D590S, an entry-level Ultra High Definition (UHD) 28″ monitor, for can$655 (~us$612, €450, £357) after taxes. Since then I have been doing various tests to determine exactly which games support UHD and to what extent, as well as trying to get a sense of how it changes various games and software.

In this post I give a general review and opinion of the monitor and examine the viability of “4K” gaming.
