A damn shame B5 might never make it to Blu-Ray.
I loved B5, but the "special effects" would look even worse on Blu-ray.

They had filmed it in widescreen and... on film, in anticipation of a widescreen HD release. And then I think some boneheaded thing or other destroyed the sources for the special effects, so now they can't be redone easily.

I have this keyboard and I frickin' love it.

I have this keyboard... and I'm actually pretty pissed off at it. The keys get stuck all the time, and it's common for them to double/triple/quadruple register in the lightest of taps.

So I guess PS4 news is drowning out nvidia Titan news.

Apparently, it sucks.

GeForce GTX Titan in most scenarios will be a slower than the GTX 690, roughly 15% to 20%. Realistically again I should be comparing towards GTX 680. However I really can't as the GTX 690 and Titan will be priced roughly the same. Now though the price might be fair, it will definitely be too much to swallow for most of you. On average you'll see 20% less performance then a GTX 690 versus the very same pricetag.

Great job, nvidia! All for only $1000?

Wow. So it is a PR and marketing scam? They are making it sound like the best thing ever....

My impression was that this was largely for computing purposes.

"Hey guys, we need to stay in business and keep making money. So, even tough LoG was just released, and some of you haven't even tried it yet--well, we don't care, and we're going to--regardless--shove another game down your throats this early in time, because it's all about us and staying in business even though that negatively affects you by the fact that we'd be shoving another game down your throats already."

"Creating a DLC would not have felt right." You mean, not have felt right to your business in the form of profits? Ahh, yes, that's what I thought you meant. Okay.

I'm confused by your post. You obviously have a different perspective on the game and/or the developer, but the game was released nearly a year ago for $14.99, and even less during a promotional launch. LoG II probably won't be release until the end of this year, or first part of next, so how is it they shoved either one down our throats?

I'm just curious, as maybe I'm missing something. HAH, wouldn't be the first time.


How is it you feel that the lifetime of a game should be only 2 years? Why should someone move onto LoG 2 just because your business needs to survive constantly? Not our problem the business needs to keep 10 people employed with salaries or whatever.

If LoG is so great, then it's the kind of game that goes for 10 years or more. ESPECIALLY SINCE A LEVEL EDITOR WAS RELEASED.

I MEAN, C'MON.

fucktards.

10/10. Awesome impression.

8 cores, high-end GPU, cutting edge graphics....sounds like they're just describing what we already have on the PC.

Sounds like dev and porting should be a breeze. What needs to happen is all three platforms come up with a standardized OS for all. The PC would then be the console w k/m and user controlled upgrade path. The rumors look to be true, stating high-end GPU would be pushing it, it was very mediocre from what I recall.


Yeah, not a high end GPU at all. It's capable of ~1.8 TFLOPS. Which in NVIDIA land would be a 660. The 680 pushes 3TFLOPS, which IS high end. Too bad they didn't put a 680 in there. :/ So this means, yet AGAIN, it's already outdated to my PC long before it comes out.

But, at least we'll be getting PC games with graphics that actually use the current GPUs well...for a little while. Of course, this will once again change shortly as PC GPUs advance so fast.

Come on. Did you really expect them to stick a $500 video card in a $400 console?

Hahaha, spoke too soon. Immediately had a fraud alert put on my account, and had to go verify the purchase.

Eh it's not like he's wrong, you really don't see the majority constant stream of negative on say RPS that you do here.

Oh boy this again, it really adds to the discussion and we totally need to rehash it every day Alien

What discussion? It's a thread full of mostly hating for the sake of hating. A spade is still a spade.

Come on, man. Don't hate the posters; hate the game.

I really wanted to like BF3, actually. Gave them money and everything. Did not enjoy the product. Not going to touch BF4.

Haha. Where have you guys been? Borders closed all of its stores two years ago. It's already gone. Completely.

Well it must have went out with a whimper, because I never saw any headlines about that.

It figures, though.

It was pretty big, actually, I thought. Huge liquidation sales, with prices dropping to Amazon's normal prices.

I remember my trips to London (a decade or more ago), and hitting every HMV I could find, as well as the Tower (Piccadilly Circus, I think?). I swear to god, it seemed like there was a HMV about every block.

There was a Tower and Virgin stores in Vegas I'd always hit, too, but they're both gone...


Well... Barnes and Noble still sells CDs and Blu-Rays... but ridiculously expensive... can get the same Blu-Ray in a Walmart for $10 cheaper... and the CDs are still the same cost as 15 years ago??? Hah! (The only reason I'd get a CD is for ripping to MP3)

Also, with e-readers and tablets starting to sell e-books... I'm not sure how long Barnes and Noble, and Borders will be around. The Borders book store in my town, shut down 2 years ago. I have to drive 30 miles to get to Barnes and Noble, if I want a book right away. But otherwise I just order those online too.


Borders is gone here, too. We have two Barnes, but I'd be surprised if both are open in 5 years. But I don't really think of music when I go there (same as walmart), as its (at least here) just a small section of popular stuff (IE anything I'd be after they'd either have to order or never heard of).

So all my money goes to amazon.


Haha. Where have you guys been? Borders closed all of its stores two years ago. It's already gone. Completely.

Locally, we still have a few B&Ns spread around the city, but my favorite now (since Borders is gone) is Joseph-Beth. Similar in concept (large bookstore), but there're only a few of them out there, and just in Ohio and Kentucky.

Why bother with an asteroid detector? It isnt like we can do anything useful about them. They either burn up or obliterate the earth. Pretty much the only options with our firepower.

For one like we just saw, you could warn people, "Hey. Stay away from windows."

For one a couple times bigger, you can say, "Take normal tornado precautions."

For the really enormous ones that we spot really early--we actually do have the technology to divert them, given ample lead time.

There's a wide gulf between planet killers and shooting stars that we can have people prepare for.

Some (all?) states with sales taxes already 'require' you to pay sales tax for mail-order and Internet purchases when you file your taxes each year. So. Many of you are already supposed to be paying this tax. You're just skirting the law.

AMD wants to set the record straight on its future GPU strategy.

"We're totally releasing new cards this year! We're releasing a <$100 7xxx card, and we're releasing two 8xxx cards that are rebranded 7xxx cards."
