A game on Steam that's NOT Early Access? Wow. I didn't think those existed anymore.

Anyway, pointless CGI trailer is pointless, but we'll see.

At least they fixed it quickly, but this is just the international customers, right? When does the US version go live again?

It seems to be a hardcore Raider's dream.

A lot of the stuff they mentioned is present in Guild Wars 2, and the latest battles they've been introducing there have been pretty fun. Aggravating at times, and apt to failure because many people seem to stubbornly insist on still not knowing how to fight something three fucking weeks into its existence, but fun nonetheless.

Wouldn't a translation layer, of necessity, be slower than the original shader? And if so, wouldn't that mean that all those games that'd use it would then run slower on SteamOS than they do on Windows?

I admittedly know very little about graphics...

A 32-Bit Windows OS only addresses 3 to 3.5GB depending on how much it has to reserve for system drivers.

No, actually a 32 bit OS CAN simply address 4GB of memory address space. What everyone always seems to forget is that your graphics memory (yes, even that on a dedicated GPU) has to be addressed by that same controller.

So it's nothing to do with system drivers. It just has to do with how much memory you have on your GPU. You can even easily test it. Just swap out the 512MB card with a 2GB one, and watch how your available system memory plummets.

But in any case, no matter how many processes or threads or CLOUD MAJICS! it uses, a 32 Bit OS can never address things beyond 4 GB of memory. Ergo, (Latin!), the minimum of 6 means it's going to require a 64 bit OS (even if the executable might still just be 32 bit.)

@ Cres,
The only company shaking up product and pricing in the mobile market is T-Mobile. Sprint has had plenty of chances to do so, and has not. Forgive me if I don't believe them when they say "Let us eliminate our competition and we'll start a price war!! Honest!" And I say that as someone who used Sprint Mobile for a decade until switching over to T-Mobile a couple of months ago. Sprint wasn't bad, they just did what Verizon and AT&T did. And if they get rid of T-Mobile, they'll continue to do that.

That's fine. Like I said, we have no guarantee he'll actually do that. But right now both sprint and T-Mobile are so small that any attempt to start a price war just gets ignored by AT&T and Verizon, and in essence all the small guy is doing is killing his own profits.

Wasn't remotely a marketing ploy. People need to shut up about that. It makes you sound like you didn't think it through before typing it our.

How about I say what the fuck I want to say, and you stop pretending like you know everything about everything, and your experience dictates how the world runs, Mmmmkay princess?

Looking for, but don't see "Win7/8 64 bit". Damn.

Isn't that kind of implied with the minimum being 6GB of RAM?

AA is ok, but i prefer a consistent >60fps at all times, with no dips.. and im willing to sacrifice some image quality for that -especially giving up AA in particular because i like to turn other fx settings like physics and particles and so forth to maximum, and AA seems to take up the most horsepower of anything

The top tier cards and the one generation behind them are so powerful that you can basically do 2xFSAA for free. It only costs me a few frames.

SSAO, however, is a monstrous performance dip still. I typically lose 15-20fps at 1080p.

What ever happened to Godus? I haven't heard anything about that in yonks.

It's still being worked on but it's a game you pay for that full of really gross mobile-style microtransaction and cow clicker hooks. Even without those, it just appears to be a boring god game as well. Molyneux basically took everything that was gross about Curiosity, then applied it to a full price game.

I am SO fucking glad I didn't back that...

EDIT: Wow, 96% bad user reviews on Steam I just noticed.

For Godus? Holy shit...

By the way the whole CoD franchise is on sale on Steam atm. Wonder if this sale has anything to do with the release of Titanfall?

Wow, really? Is it five dollars off? Or did Bobby go for broke and make it a $7.50 discount, that wacky rascal?

I can't believe they actually intend to charge a monthly fee for this.

Oh, come on! They've explained that many times! They want all their users to be able to experience all the content they have without having to worry about stuff being put behind a paywall.

You know, like the Imperial race...

Which is behind a paywall...

Eh, Guild Wars 2 has Infinity as its priciest item on the trading post, going for 3600 gold. If you were to buy gems to turn into gold, that makes it a ~$700 weapon.

You can still grind for your legendary if you want to, but if some people want to bypass it and get it with cash, it's no big deal to me. That kind of money just goes back into the game anyway (at least I hope so. Is this published by EA? If so, it goes into the black hole that is their balance sheet.)

I think their morality score is kind of interesting. It's like, yes, it's a fun game, and yes, if you're sensitive to sexual content/violence you should stay far, far away. Not sure where the hypocrisy is there. They're just acknowledging multiple demographics in their review.

Ssshhh, Christianity bashing is a firmly established belief on Bluesnews.

Don't think of it so much as bashing Xtianity as it is bashing stupidity. Religion is for the weak and the stupid. Period. And the worst part is that this brainwashing is perfectly legal and non-taxable.

I'm sure Creston appreciates you perfectly illustrating your point for him.

I wasn't even going to bother saying it, but yep.

Ah, Diane Feinstein. The hypocrisy that oozes out of your pustulous beak truly knows no bound.

The American Citizen was supposed to shut the fuck up about the NSA, because well, that was necessary after all. It stopped an entire group of guys from wiring some money to some dude in the middle east, so CLEARLY it was a vital component in the global battle against terrorism, and any breaches of Constitutional amendments, well, that was just the price of doing business.

But now that the completely out of control government apparatus(ses? Si?) is spying on her and her cronies, OMG FOURTH AMENDMENT!!!

Fucking bint.

But hey, keep voting for her, Californians! I hope she passes a bill that mandates each and every one of you buy a Kinect, and forces you to keep it on 24/7.
