bought a 40 inch Element from Target on Black Friday 2 years ago for 200 and has served me quite well and even my brother in law (who is a videophile with his 55 inch Sony 3D TV) said it looked great. But I was over at their house babysitting tonight and once the kids went to bed I played GTA5, and I'm not sure if it's me, but the framerate seemed better on the Sony TV.

Did anyone picked this up on the PC?
I am hearing some good things about this one. Like it is a better Far Cry then Far Cry 3 was.

After playing the 360 version, the PC version is just fucking dead sexy. Foliage movement, especially during a storm is beautiful (and I LOVE weather effects in game).

Riding a rogue wave like a surfboard, in a storm while fighting a fleet of ships, WHILE attacking a fort has been my biggest 'GET THE PADDLES READY I'M GONNA HAVE A HEART ATTACK!' moment in years. Thankfully I quit chewing my nails years ago, cause all I would have left is palms.

The story is just 100 times better then AC3 (which I still can't finish) and AC4 sorta spoils what I already knew about Desmond, but the 'out of the animus' story (from what little I have played), is a 1st person view, but alot more enjoyable then walking around in the previous games and just talking to Sean and what's her name.

Another example of how PC games get delayed, but are so worth it, especially with the AC series on PC.

Your optimism is so amusing.

/Cardinals fan.

I was a Chargers/Padres fan back when I lived (grew up in San Diego area) in California, back when stadiums had 1 name (Jack Murphy Stadium), but it's been many moons since Dan Fouts and Steve Garvey.
Only thing I share with Bengal's fan is our hatred of the Steelers.
But as for the Cubs, (while I don't follow the seasons) I love me a underdog, and I don't mean how the Reds/Bengals start off great, f'up the rest of the season, and BARELY make it into the play-offs and give up (for the last 5 years at least).

Plus I REALLY want to go to Wrigley field. I believe it's one of the last few original fields left that hasn't been renamed, or sold to some corporation.

Dear lord, look at all the games in that archive.

Rainbow Six, System Shock 2, Shogo, hell even Battlecruiser 3000ad was a fine product compared to the crap that gets shovel out these days.

Old? We need our own Gaming wing at the senior citizen home.

Wow, zero to awkward in record time. Can it recognize and sign you in automatically based on your foreskin?

True fact: The PS4 has never asked to see my dick.

Not yet... but it's early in the 7-10 console cycle

It can see your junk, but everything else in the video is outdated info.
Does that mean I'll start getting friend requests and messages from Microsoft on how to gain 1-3 inches if I download certain apps?

What? These features don't, in any way, turn the game into a tech demo. Far cry 2 and 3 are tech demos? I had a LOT more fun with Crysis 1 than Crysis 2. Crysis 2 is a COD clone. Crysis 1 is the evolution of Farcry 1. The reason it's less fun is debatable, but I think it's because they tried to go the more serious route.
The problem with Crysis is that it had weak gameplay, a terrible narrative and was very poorly optimised. By the time people were able to play it at high settings there were games with much better gameplay, graphics and optimisation - Far Cry 2 being an obvious example. I can certainly understand why people refer to Crysis as a tech demo. Crysis 2 had a much better narrative, pace and optimisation - it was the better game, even if it went a bit too linear.

Um Crysis came out AFTER Far Cry 2, and Far Cry 2 used a modifed Far Cry 1 engine and was NOT done by Crytek. Far Cry 2's only 'cool' thing was setting stuff on fire. Beyond the countless linear roads, I wouldn't put it up against Crysis 1 or 2.

Oddly enough I do this when putting together lego sets and I'm looking for that one damn piece (and after reading the article I've been doing it since I was 15 or so).
But then again isn't there a saying 'hold on to your breath'?

So in other words we will need a 3000$ computer to run it. Thanks Chris, nice to know you wont be wasting any of your time optimizing your game, if or when it ever comes out.

Or mabye he is saying that ten years from now when the game finally released even the shittiest PCs of the era will be able to run it well. Chris Roberts FTW!

This is what's scaring me. Don't get me wrong I love PC gaming, but the nice thing is, I can spend 500-600 bucks every 5 years and be fine running everything that comes out. Is Star Citizen going to be the next Doom 3/Far Cry/Crysis that we have to shell out big bucks even on a PC to get the best bang for it's buck?

Um, I'm not sure what version of Skyrim you play, but with HD textures, and the enhancement mods alone (Town and Villages Enhanced for example), the game is vastly better then the current console version or the vanilla PC version.

But look at GTA 4 to Red Dead Redemption or GTA 5. Same engine vastly improved over 3 games. Let's see what they can do with the Skyrim engine in their second game.

Why does that surprise you? Have you seen the kind of movies that win Oscars every year?

They gave Obama and Yasser Arafat a fucking nobel prize, for God's sake. (in separate years, before some toolbag starts bleating.)

Don't put any stock in "awards."

Vegas had better writing, but not a whole hell of a lot to do outside of the main plot.

The thing is, the Workshop has really opened up the gamers to mods, and in turn dev's opening games back up to mods officially.

And why I like NMM, most of the mods I add to the game are visual things like the Village Enhancements. But recently installed NMM for New Vegas, and while it's nice, I was having some issues with mods.

Don't need STEAM Workshop. There is already a Fallout Nexus.

While I agree it's better for the amount of items, it's just easier with the Workshop.

Yeah, this is taking a looooooooong time.

Also, what's up with all the zombies being women? I understand it's an alpha, but that's odd.

Surely you know how women are evil vile creatures that will rend the flesh from your bones?
