Sun's out. I'm running out of content on Netflix to watch, but at least there's a murder case worth watching. During the month of July 2014, I watched 2,531 minutes (42 hours and 11 minutes) of movies and shows via Netflix's streaming service. I came to a conclusion those streams had a total value of $21.24. Let's find out if I made use of my Netflix subscription during the month of August 2014. To estimate the value of each stream, I divided the cost of the physical version (Blu-ray or DVD) of each movie or show by the estimated amount of times I would watch that release in the next 20 years. Movie/Show Estimated Runtime Value of Stream Ghostbusters 105 minutes $1.00 Ghostbusters II 108 minutes $1.00 The Killing: Season 4 344 minutes $10.00* I estimated that the total value of the movies and shows that I watched on Netflix in August 2014 was $12.00, which is 57 percent down from the previous month. Here's a breakdown of that value: The movies that I watched had a total value of $2.00. The total runtime of the movies that I watched is 213 minutes (3 hours 33 minutes). The show that I watched had a total value of $10.00. The total runtime of the show that I watched is 344 minutes (5 hours 44 minutes). I paid approximately $1.39 for each hour of programming. If it weren't for the fourth season of The Killing -- I would have lost money with my Netflix subscription in August 2014. *Based on the expected MSRP of $19.99 for the upcoming DVD set.

You're a minute away from recovering your save files. The latest patch for the Steam version of The 7th Guest creates a dedicated folder for your save files. Before you can continue your progress in the Windows and Linux versions of that game, you need to move your old save files to that folder: Right-click on The 7th Guest in your Steam Library, and click on Properties. Click on the Local Files tab, and click on Browse Local Files. Drag your "t7g.***" save files to the Saves folder on the same screen. Because the OS X version of The 7th Guest has been completely replaced in the latest patch, older save files for that version doesn't work with the new version.

Question: Does Risen 3: Titan Lords Support NVIDIA's SLI or AMD's CrossFireX? Answer: No. Risen 3: Titan Lords is running on the same engine as Risen 2: Dark Waters which doesn't support SLI or CrossFireX. If you force Risen 3 to use SLI or CrossFireX, the game will split the load of one video card throughout your setup; for example, if you have two video cards in your setup, Risen 3 will utilize 50 percent of each card, with no added benefits. Opinions: A lack of SLI or CrossFireX support is unfortunate for most Windows gamers, considering a single NVIDIA GTX, which is currently the most popular video card series, is unable to provide a constant 60 FPS experience at 1080p with max settings.
