If they can produce a game,and this ship as shown in the 1st video released for Star Citizen/Squadron 42, AND not take a fucking mega computer sent from the future to run it... then awesome.

But until then everything released is a bullshot.

I have to disagree. W3's lighting engine is better then GTA 5's.

For Proof and if you want more proof wait till you use the Magic Lamp for the 1st time and compare it to the Humane Labs Ground team.

It'll be ok, you'll actually enjoy it, and be happy, and we can save money on the tranquilizer gun we were getting for you.

Yeah but how does it run on a non-SLI system? Last I heard a few weeks ago, it wasn't looking too good. Did they get multiplayer in yet?

But anyone who has been around 10+ years in PC Gaming knows that while AMD has good hardware, they are NOTORIOUS for horrible drivers. Every time I have upgraded my GPU since the good old VOODOO days, this has played a factor into my purchase of NVIDIA cards, and why I will NOT purchase a AMD card.

Funny enough it was the opposite reason that I jumped from nvidia to amd back around when the 290 drivers were released. Because while their hardware was great, all their drivers did for nearly a year was crash, crash, crash, TDR, TDR, TDR all the while they tried blaming users for it. Until it came to light that it was their drivers causing the problems, because their cards ran so hot they dropped the voltage down to keep the gpu cooler. That caused serious instability, and then they fixed it for about 3 releases and all of a sudden the problem was back again.

Each to their own.
AMD I haven't had to many issues over the years. Maybe a hickup here and there. nVidia was a constant battle with drivers for me back in the day but I haven't been back to them in years because of it. Think it was 4400's and 6800's for me.

One day I might try nVidia out again but to this day AMD and its drivers have done me well over the years on all my cards. I even have the R290 which was notorious for issues.

Yes, you are talking ancient drivers. But ever since Nvidia bought out 3DFX and brought in their people. The 3DFX team fixed their drivers to what they are today.

I have no issues with the Nvidia drivers. they are really stable and always worked for me.

I went from a Voodoo 3, to a 4400ti, to a 9800GT to a 560ti to a GTX 970. Beyond Mantle, what can ATI/AMD offer me?

#It was unlocked an hour early (6pmEST) and so far I like it (that's also with less then 1 hour into Witcher 1 and 2).

Using a gamepad, but either gamepad or keyboard tends to be way too sensitive with character movements.

Impressive:
While on a horse you can sorta 'auto-drive' on pathways, as in as long as you hold the run button, the horse will follow the path automatically.
Weather is pretty impressive from a wind perspective. Granted the rain didn't quite match up to it, but the tree's bending over like being in a hurricane was quite impressive (Hell I've been in 10 or so).

Not Impressive:
I have no grasp or idea what all is required for the crafting or potion making, or upgrading system.
Character movements can be crazy, and uber sensitive.

So long King, thank you for all the fun!


So since it's a Blue day, maybe we can Blue to tell us how he ended up with the name Blue.

Peter DOES NOT LIE. He only tells the truth. Every day another one. Which is true. For that day.

YOU ARE SIMPLY TOO SMALL MINDED TO 'GET' PETER!
You take feature creep and reverse it.

Not on the CW so no cool Arrow/Flash crossovers.
WAY too much comedy and could use a more of a dark humor tone instead.
Horrible FX.
Tons more of crap that was done right with shows like Heroes, No Ordinary Family, Arrow and Flash.

And will have no contact with Man of Steel/Dawn of Justice.

It was a really shitty port that Red Faction Arma also experienced but they patched it. It seems that Saints Row 2 is set to run on the processor speed of the original Xbox Here's the Steam info

I would love to play Saints Row 2, but if you have a x64 processor the game plays at super speed and I never could get the 3rd part slow down program to work properly.
