I know what you mean about having all the games in one place, however about patching I believe GTA5 will be using the Rockstar client to do all that stuff and not Steam.

Damn, I'm so excited for this game all a sudden and I don't even plan on buying it at full price. Aaaaargggh! Why! oh Why! I wish game prices were dead locked in so I wouldn't get buyer's remorse so heavily. Knowing this game will drop like an anchor in price in the next 6 months or so has me aching to pay full price. What oh what do I dos?

You don't have to pay full price, GMG, nuveem, G2A are a few places you can get this game cheap.
I got my key from nuuvem for $37 CDN, which is around $30US
I doubt this game will be this cheap on Steam in the next 6 months

I got mine from nuuvem for $37CDN which is like $10 US or something.
You'll need Hola in your browser in order to get it from nuuvem but the code you get is not region locked, it redeemed fine with my CDN Rockstar account and the English version of game preloaded.

For those of you interested in Elite and doesn't trust us gamers here on Blues, check out the Ars Technica review that just came out a few days ago.
It is pretty detailed and brutally honest about Elite, here is the link

The short version of their review:
Here is the plain truth: Elite: Dangerous was released unfinished, and itís still unfinished. Thereís every indication that the December 16 1.0 release occurred in order to hit an arbitrary "before the end of 2014" release date, and the 1.0 product we got was not release-worthy. Major gameplay mechanics, like the much-hyped "background simulation" whereby the galaxyís economy and politics evolve, were broken or flat-out missing. Multiple poorly tested or overlooked gameplay exploits were present. The gameís peer-to-peer networking architecture was easily subverted and eminently hackable. The gameís multiplayer was just a wreck, with broken and unreliable player comms and no way to group up or trade money or cargo; in fact, until very recently, the only meaningful way to interact with another player was simply to blow them up.

And yet, in spite of how broken the game was at launch and all the ways in which it remains plagued with bugs even now after two major patches, Elite: Dangerous is so damn good that it transcends its problems. When I strap on my Oculus Rift DK2 and look around my cockpit, I am flying my own spaceship.

Blasting through Witch space, docking at stations, hauling goods on long trade routes, hunting for bounties, blowing away NPCs or other players in conflict zones, or exploring a thousand light years away from known spaceóDavid Braben and his team at Frontier Developments have built the best, most immersive, most gripping "you are flying a spaceship" experience I have ever played in the 30 years Iíve been playing video games.

To be honest, I don't understand this whole 4K profit-whore of a hype thing going on. 4K is basically useless if you have a normal.. say 27" screen which leads to my opinion that I don't think you need a screen much bigger than that in a M/KB setting -- in this setting you're generally sitting at a desk, less than a meter from your monitor no?

I just don't understand this 4K hype, and, like music on the radio, it's only such a hit because the media can't shut up about it. So I'm kinda annoyed that Rockstar gave us this bullshit "benchmark" on this 4k system that can run 4k resolutions flawlessly -- it's not representative to the majority of the target group.
I think they've only did it to show how much more of a beast the PC version is compared to the consoles. You can run it at 4k 60fps if you have the rig for it.
I think the majority of gamers out there will not take advantage of this for the next few years but hey if you get the cash to burn, GTA5 and Elite Dangerous are some of the games you can play in 4k.

I would have loved to see a more normal system benchmark as well but seeing that the game is able to run 60fps in 4k res on a rig that is not a quad titanx, gives me hope that it will run well in 1080p on normal computer hardware that is affordable without selling both mine and my kids kidneys.

Judging from those screenshots owners of a GTX 970 are seriously screwed as GTA5 seems to be optimized for exactly 4 Gb of VRAM (or higher)...
At 4K resolution

Spectral, go for it. That is a really good price. New Order was a fantastic game. Pretty excited for this one.
I will but damn I am getting overwhelmed with so many games. GTA5 is out next week, and that game will eat my free time.
Then there is Killing Floor 2 at the end of April.

Well I had to go with Bell Fibe this time around but I managed to get a 2 year deal for 15/10 Mbps for $50 per an no caps. And I've no complaints so far.

That's a hell of a lot better than what I have now through Bell. I assume it's due to being in a two year contract?
I don't think there are contracts anymore. I think it is due to competition
I got Rogers cable 100 down and 10 up unlimited for $67 taxes in for 2 years. No contract.

Oh you'll be fine. 780Ti is still a really fast card. The rest of the specs are top notch too so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to max out most settings.
I mean the 780Ti is faster than the 970 around the same speed as the 980 in certain games.

Thanks for info. If you're wrong, you're going to hear about it. Wink

If I am wrong I'll buy your card for $100 and you can upgrade to a 980 or TitanX

If you look at the screenshots closely you can see he is changing the settings as he is going through them (the 1st and 3rd screenshots show different memory settings than the 2nd).
He mentioned something in the article about the game shows you how much memory it's using as you change the settings.
I've never seen that in any game before.
Really hope this will run good on my 760, if not I'll be video card shopping next week.

You will not see the difference but the refresh rate of the monitor doesn't limit the speed the game is running at.

If Vsync is on it does.
Oh right I missed the "vsync on" part of your comment, my bad

Author claims it was running at 60fps @ 4k, but his own screenshots of the settings show that the 4k display they are using is at a 30hz refresh rate with VSync enabled. That would not allow him to run 60fps.
That is hilarious and discouraging at the same time

Oh, so it has it's own downloader it sounds... I was assuming this was Steam handling it.

I keep putting off pre-ordering... well, Friday's payday >.>
I think the Steam version downloads from Steam directly, but all other versions use the Rockstar client
I got mine from nuuvem which redeems on RS.
