1. FREAKS AND GEEKS
A cult-classic, “Freaks and Geeks” follows the lives of a group of high school misfits. This Judd Apatow creation launched the careers of Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segel. You can take another look at “Freaks and Geeks” on Netflix. Continue Reading

Hi everyone. New to Tech Inferno. You can call me Stu. Nando asked me to post my setup and results which I’m happy to do.
I’m going to keep this as simple as possible since this eGPU project has been just that, simple and awesome. In my eyes, this is where the eGPU game ends. Thunderbolt 2 (and TB3 coming soon), full-size chassis, fastest single GPU on the market, running at desktop speeds. I suppose the only caveat is cost but considering I only need to upgrade my GPU from this point on, it’s worth it. I live an hour away from Sonnet’s headquarters in California and decided I had waited long enough to complete my eGPU experiment. The results surpassed expectations.
Feel free to scroll down for specific benchmark and game results.
Once the player has selected their class and weapons, they spawn at the team base. In order to get to the combat area, the player boards a transport: an APC or a Black Hawk helicopter, where the player actually sits visibly with their team mates.These periodically transport troops into battle. Killed players re-spawn at their base. The first person to enter the transport gains control of the transport’s gun.
Transports can be destroyed by the enemy team with a LAW or Stinger missile, which can be found at their base.
With their transport destroyed, there are no more reinforcements coming, thus making it much easier for the enemy team to complete objectives, although a new transport will arrive after a period of time (default time is one minute). Should a team destroy the enemy transport and then kill all enemy troops in the battlezone before their new transport arrives, they win the round.
However, when carrying those heavy rocket launchers, the player becomes very slow and cannot use other weapons; therefore, teamplay plays a big part in reaching the enemies LZ in order to destroy their transport.
About a year before LucasArts shut down, the iconic studio cancelled a near-finished game called Star Wars Outpost. Today, we’ve learned a bit more about that game.
Developed by LucasArts’ Singapore studio—which at the time was also assisting on other games like Star Wars 1313 and even working on its own projects like an HD version of the adventure game Day of the Tentacle—Star Wars Outpost was planned for release on browsers and mobile platforms (iOS/Android). Although the game was never announced, it was nearly completed, according to several people who worked at LucasArts before it shut down in April of 2013.
