The current "Retro Let's Play" is Silent Hill 2 from 2001. The atmosphere is set early, with a rolling fog covering the town, greatly limiting your view, and giving a foreboding sense of claustrophobic dread. As James enters local buildings, the claustrophobia gets worse, with narrow hallways and poor lighting adding to the fear. Your health in the game is indicated no only by a physical icon in your menu, but also a pulse that you can feel through your controller (as such, playing with a rumble-capable controller is highly recommended). In typical survival horror style, your character is quite weak, and despite the availability of some weapons, ammunition is sparse, and movement is slow and cumbersome, almost like a bad dream. There's a PC download link in the thread.

Also on the retro side of things, Axe spotted a new Doom II secret hidden for 24 years. The news comes way of series co-creator John Romero, who tweeted out on Friday that a YouTuber by the name of Zero Master had unearthed a secret that had been hiding for almost a quarter of a century.

HardOCP have looked into Threadripper 2950X Overclocking. We have spent a lot of time understanding the new Threadripper 2950X and how it overclocks. We have put it through the paces using a chiller system, water cooling, and air cooling. We show you what Precision Boost Overdrive and what Precision Boost 2 can push the processor to in terms of stable performance as well as manual overclocking.

The NBN is becoming more expensive. New NBN Co chief executive Stephen Rue has lifted the expected cost of the network rollout to $51 billion, with the infrastructure giant planning to raise an extra $2 billion from private sources around 2020. The really sad thing is that it's now available in my area and I haven't been bothered to switch over to it yet. Urgh.
