Why not just do a HD Remake of all the Mega Man games with the latest engine? I'd pony up 40 bucks.

Sad to see Lego Worlds is single player only for now. Sad that the last TT Lego game to have multiplayer online was Lego Star Wars.

Good looking guy. Keeps in shape, well groomed, attractive, but has this uni-bomber beard that ruins all of it.

Tip of the spear eh? (holds back many many dick jokes).

Anyone else remember the Gaming Gods 1 and 2 covers of PC Gamer magazine?


And while the tip is nice, we all know it's about the shaft and thrust

It's a shame they don't take this technology and graphics and just do a reboot of the Rainbow Six games. Same levels, same basic gameplay, add in first person and a few other modern mechanics. This will sell way more copies than that ever would though I'm sure.

You mean like all the R6 games had up until Vegas?

The more I see of this the more it has NOTHING to do with Rainbow Six and more to do with trying to compete with Battlefield Hardlines.

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.
