Somewhat off subject, WTF is up with the train wreck that is Mass Effect 3 winning all these GotY titles? There were so many amazing games that completely overshadowed ME3.

It is PC Gamer after all. The same guys who gave a review in the high 90s to DA2. Take a look around their offices for big brown envelopes from Bioware.
Its rarely about money. Its about getting games early, so they can test them earlier (than others). If they would give bad ratings, they wouldnt get them anymore "in time".
Thats how most gaming sites work nowadays. Nobody wants to wait for the release date to start testing a game, because that would mean massive losses.

Not impressed. Looks like a generic console game. The models are horrible, the scenery looks extremely limited, the textures look laughable and the animations look like they are from 2004.
Sick of console ports.
Just watched an older gameplay video from August. What a joke... "Alien kill +$100", "Achievement unlocked!", "Challenge complete!", "DOUBLE KILL!".
W T F ???

In other news, the NRA is recommending armed guards in elementary schools as a solution to the problem.

And as a result would ramp up the sales of the gun manufacturers backing the NRA. Classy.

I blame the lack of killer ED-209 robots in every school. The NRA are a bunch of tree hugging, missiory style hedgehog loving poofs!

ED209? Pathetic, it can't even do stairs and gets taken out easily with a rocket launcher ya commie liberal traitor. What you really need is an army of Batmen.

If I win the lottery I swear I'm personally funding another Bridge Commander game. Why no one has ever duplicated their damage modeling of ships baffles me.

If I win the lottery I'll buy out Abrams and give the franchise to someone else. Hell, even Boll would almost be a better choice.

The greek are notoriously finicky about their military installations (god knows why in the age of google earth). Even plane spotters get rustled for taking pictures of planes (that are documented already on wikipedia)

Because they are at a "cold war" with Turkey, prolly.

Anyone tried it yet what that means exactly? More or less power usage?

Basically, it means the power handling and clocking of the card is handled closer to what the old "Prefer Maximum Performance" power-state setting that the control panel offered. It does increase power usage slightly but not significantly from what I've found, and it helps with stuttering and some other issues that the power-save feature caused in certain games.

Does that also mean they removed the god damn turbo crap?

News Comments > New NVIDIA Reference Drivers
41. Re: New NVIDIA Reference Drivers Dec 4, 2012, 17:43 Muscular Beaver
 
I just wanted to install them, then I read this:

Release 310 drivers introduce power-optimizing enhancements. As a result of these
enhancements, you may notice that GPU core clock speeds are different with this driver.
For example, the GPU core clock might be faster when the GPU is in idle mode than in
previous drivers. Or you may notice higher GPU core clock speeds after closing or
opening certain games than in previous drivers.
This is because the reported GPU core clock frequency is no longer correlated to GPU
power-saving states. Instead of lowering the GPU core clock frequency, the hardware and
software use other methods to put the GPU into a low power state when the GPU is idle
or in response to changing application requirements. This ensures optimum power use
while continuing to provide high graphics performance.

Anyone tried it yet what that means exactly? More or less power usage?

Far Cry 3 vs. Crysis 1 is pretty close
lol? Anxious

But seriously, you can't have played Far Cry 3 if you think Crysis is "pretty close" visually. I could keep posting screenshots but I doubt it would change your mind.

Looks like a souped up Far Cry 1. View distance is pretty low, so its actually worse in some aspects.

I consider this a mistake on their part since I'm guessing that DX10 hardware will play it, but the DirectX 11 software needs to be installed. The low-end cards listed indeed are DX10 cards.
The low-end cards on their list are DX11 cards; there are not any DX10 cards on that list.

They are seriously programming in 64 bit? I kinda doubt that.
On a 64bit OS a 32bit binary can access up to 4GB of RAM. Throw in OS overhead and 8GB makes a lot of sense if you intend to fully utilize that 4GB.

Yeah, many have claimed that, yet I have never seen it in a game.

Your supplied screenshots don't visibly support your assertion that Crysis 2 and Far Cry 2 look better than the original Crysis. Confused
Tthey're not the easiest to compare but I stand by my point - I consider both games to have better graphics than Crysis.

I found a few more Crysis 2 shots that might be slightly better:
Indoors
Cobbles
Grassy

And from Crysis:
Vehicle
Sunset

I agree, Crysis looks much better than Crysis 2, the screenshots prove it very well.

Didn't they release 64 bit exe's for Crysis and Crysis 2?

Creston
Yeah, for Crysis. But since Crysis 2 was just a console port, doubt it had 64 bit.

Not even for that. Imagine the GTA developers doing a crowd funding project. I am willing to bet they would get more money than they got from publishers.

I am always amazed at how useless and broken Publishers can be to be honest. Sure 4 million is nothing in cash for a AAA title but there are a LOT of people who loved Baldurs Gate 2 or Torment. And yet it takes Obsidian as a DEVELOPER and some guts and 100k public investors who simply have HOPE to get it made, instead of a publisher, who's entire fucking business model and even reason of existence was supposed to allow for funding of "hit and miss" games were success was not guaranteed but which would need funding far above what anyone could privately organize.

Publishers really do everything they can to put themselves into a niche where a single flop means the end of their entire business. Does that sound like smart business to anyone?

EA for example said two thirds of the development costs are being used for public relations, sometimes much more. Thats a lot, and without it, 4 million really does seem reasonable.

Just to make things clear:

The sale of such games is not verboten in Germany; they just can't be sold to somebody under 18. And you can't advertise for such publications in media that is available to minors.

Only very few games are actually banned in Germany; I think the number is 13.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Germany

Nobody forces a developer/publisher to censor their games to get a under 18 release in Germany.

Online sales, where it's difficult to determine the buyers age, are tricky though...

Some just dont sell that game if your IP is from Germany. If you order it online, you will need to provide a copy of your identification and the postman will only deliver the package to the person who ordered it (also checked by identification, unless he/she knows you already).

Yeah, we still have a little Nazi in us. Lately though, I think he got bigger and bigger.
