What you really need is 3 GeForce Titans.

nah, I think my 660 will be enough. ArmA/OFP was never a huge GPU hogger. I was more thinking about getting a nice quad core Haswell and overclock it to 5 GHz. Oh yeah and a new SSD!

I guess Ill take the supporter edition, since all future DLCs are included.

But damn, I really need a new computer, but Haswell is so close. Guess I have to wait till June...

So do all the DLC combined in this game make up for an expansion?
And is this finally the last one so I can start playing this game how it was meant to be?

So then it wouldnt be released this year. What gives?
ArmA 2 is still running strong and we all know they could use a lot more time polishing their games before releasing them...
Le sigh... looks like I have to finally give in to Steam to be able to keep playing real PC games...

Holy shit they've been at Titan for at least a solid 5 years+ at his point. Even if they announce it you figure it's still 2+ years out given how Blizzard works so there's really nothing to get excited about regardless. And given how they'll monetize the shit out of it now do you really think it's something you'll want to play several years from now?

If its anything like Diablo3 then my answer is simple. No. Isnt Titan a code word though? Im thinking that it will probablybe a Sci-Fi MMO in the Starcraft universe. Its the next logical step, although if they want to make it work it better not be WoW in Space ala SWOTOR....

They stated already that it is a completely new IP. Not that their words mean anything, since they have proven often enough in the past, that they even blatantly lie to their fans.

Hate to sound callous here, but... That pretty much falls into the learn2play category. You need to be more careful and stealthy when you have nothing to defend yourself with. That goes for hostile players and zombies alike. Also learn how to bug out, evasively maneuver, tactically retreat, i.e. run the hell away safely. And avoid big cities like the plague, they are the most dangerous places because there is lots of loot -> lots of players -> lots of fighting.

But if you're going to be so sensitive about dying and having to start over at a moment's notice, you're just not going to like the game, period. That happens to veteran/geared up players, too. Sometimes you just get got, so you live with it and move on. Getting better at the game just means increasing the average period of time in between that happening.

Oh, I dont care if I get killed by normal things like players or Zombies.
But I do mind very much so, if I get killed because I "fall" 40 inches, die because I get too close to a tree or lose months work because tents disappear or are not properly hideable. Not to mention all the "hacked" servers that simply have hacked items laying everywhere, so that you never really know if its hacked or if you really are that lucky to for example find several high capacity backpacks in a supermarket, while on other servers you search ages for a single tent.

Star Trek always was about ethics. Not just action.
TOS was in a time where the world simply wasnt ready for more advanced ethics. And even the stuff they implemented, like colored and Russian people on the bridge, was a huge deal back then. Also it was a 60s theme. You cant expect a 60s series to be like the ones from nowadays. TNG on the other hand made it much clearer.

The remake is an abomination in all kinds of ways, real fans havent accepted it. Only the ones who thought they are real fans and people who werent fans before - exactly like it was planned. This has nothing to do with Star Trek. Even Transformers has more in common with it than real Star Trek.

I certainly recognize that Star Trek was intended to be morality plays all along, and I even said so. I also recognize that the 60's series had their limitations, yet pushed the limit for their time, and the 80's series had could deal with things that weren't a big deal in the 60's. Hell, the TV execs wouldn't let a woman be the 1st officer (Pilot pitch episode), and it was pushing the envelope for Kirk and Uhura to kiss on the air, back then, which neither would be a big deal in the 80s.

That doesn't mean that liking the action portions of the series (either the 60's or the 80's) makes anyone less of a fan... and claiming that they are not a 'real fans' because they don't agree with people regarding the new movie, or that one series vs. another is any more intelligent over another... is asinine. Everyone has a right to their opinion on what the like or don't like... and it is possible to enjoy action while appreciating the morality side as well. People like you look like arrogant asshats that obviously didn't absorb ANYTHING that "Star Trek's "advanced" Ethics" tried to teach.

Who the hell are you (or anyone else) to say whether I'm a "REAL" fan or not? I was probably a fan before your were even born.

I said it already. Because Star Trek, how Roddenberry intended it, was about that, and not only about brainless action and lens flares. These ethics depicted in Star Trek influenced many generations.

Its like putting a VW engine into a Ferrari and then wondering why many people say it isnt a real Ferrari anymore.
Get a clue.

but to at all call it a "Star Trek" movie is pushing it a bit...which is why it's a "reboot."

So you are saying that TOS really isn't Star Trek, and TNG, onward, really is?

I find that rather insulting.

The only reason TOS was campy was because it was extremely low budget, and the television execs didn't understand it, so they put in a shitty time slot, which is why it got cancelled with only 3 seasons. It only caught on when the syndicated re-runs ran early enough for kids to watch it... then the ratings went through the roof, and Star Trek, as the cult classic was born. The ratings in the early 70's were so much higher than the original air-dates, that they made an Animated Series with most of the original cast doing the voices.

Saying or implying that it "isn't really Star Trek", or it isn't "as intelligent as the newer series" is outright blasphemy!

I also tried PoE after you guys mentioned it so often here. All I can say is, I am amazed. This and a Diablo theme, and it could have been the true Diablo 3.
When I took a look at the skill tree, I almost fell off my chair, then I zoomed out and I laughed out in joy and then I scrolled down and almost had a heart attack because of joy.
Leveling gems, much more responsive controls, the way to find groups, the music, the graphics, wow...
This shows so well how much of a fail Diablo 3 really is.

This DayZ hype is really starting to benefit ArmA 2.
Much more players on normal ArmA 2 servers now. The effect that I feared that there would be much more cheaters because of this, has not been true. However there are much more teamkillers and other griefers on servers now.
There will be a brief spike in players. The sorts of players who complain about the game or require endless help and then quit. Few will stay for the non Day-Z content.

This has actually gone on for months. There are quite a lot of regular players, who are pretty good, and they dont seem to be quitting anytime soon. Even some providers of DayZ server have started to add Warfare servers or similar.
From what I hear those are actually people who couldnt stand DayZ anymore because of the game breaking bugs. These bugs dont affect the normal ArmA 2 gamemodes nearly as much.

Even someone does like it, I'd challenge the practicality and ease of use in comparison to a long-used and familiar tool that already existed.

Well, it's all a bit subjective isn't it? Some people claim that command line tools are more practical and versatile than some graphical UI and that is because they know how to use it.

For example, I was excited when Microsoft announced a change in the UI. I am still extremely pleased with it! The result of this, I can't help but think, is that I was rather open to learning to use it and so I agree with the poster that you quoted: I find it to be a significantly faster OS to use than windows 7 (in the sense that I can access 'notes.txt' within my My Documents folder faster; I can't comment on milliseconds saved when opening said file), and I really liked W7. Is it perfect? Nope, and I wouldn't even claim W7 was perfect. Is it an improvement in my life over Windows 7? Yes.

But, I am reasonably suspicious of your disdain for W8 since, not only do you argue that YOU dislike it (the only reasonable stance) but you go further to try to 'objectively' prove that it is a worse OS. Even more distasteful is that you try to use YouTube videos to prove your point. There are YouTube videos suggesting that the end of the world is nigh, that people faked the moon launch, that the Illuminati rule the world, etc. YouTube is not an authoritative source

Anyways, if you could show me how many users of Windows 8 use programs like Start8 or Pokki, I'd be interested. For example, is it 80% of Win8 users using these startmenu replacements? Is it 50%? 10%? You don't know either.

Ultimately, in a world where I gave more shits, I'd ask why you are so angry over Windows 8. Perhaps you fear change on some deep level. I can't help but think: Get the fuck over it.

In a world where you would actually read criticism, you would know why many people hate this try of an OS.
A few little hints: The power of Microsofts monopoly, free software.

Oh and btw, I really wanted to like Windows 8, because I use a touchscreen in my car connected to a PC. But thanks to another of Microsofts smart decisions, I cant use it there because it requires a minimum resolution of 1024x768. One of the biggest markets of PC touchscreens and they didnt think of that.
Anyway, thats just one of my personal reasons. There are many more, and reading a little, would make you realize that too.

I've actually no idea how good Windows 8 is, since the tile system is so unpopular no one even gets as far as talking about anything else. That's a pretty big fail right there.

Or people are too busy using it to comment but I'll take a moment. The new tile system is far faster to find, launch and organize applications than the old Start Menu.

Everyone just used shortcuts on the desktop though didn't they? I know I did, and still do.

Now that I launch 95% of my games through Steam, it's more moot, but I put shortcuts to everything else I want, on my Desktop, then make my bar double height, and put the desktop on the bottom half... Even with 4k resolution, having to find shit on the desktop (under a pile of windows) would be a pain... And in the end, it's not all that different from using the quick launch bar, but I like it this way : )

-Alamar

Thats why you can easily change the size of the icons (ctrl + mousewheel)... Text size is also easily adjustable... Oh, and on the far right of your double height taskbar is a nice button to hide all the windows.

Guess some people need a new OS for that. lol
