So for someone who doesn't usually follow AMD stuff ever and without googling, what the hell is this mantle anyways? Someone give me a quick breakdown.

It's AMD's new proprietary graphics acceleration technology. In key locations around the globe, they're able to pump liquid nitrogen past the earth's crust deep into the mantle where they harvest neutrinos given off by the massive temperature differential. They then use these neutrinos to power vast racks of servers in the cloud that AMD procs tap into to accelerate games and other graphics. Although they were claiming increases of 30-40% (which happened in special cases), in most cases improvement was only around 10%, so like NewMaxx said, more evolutionary than revolutionary.

CLOUD MAJICS!!! WAS IT INVENTED BY TEH MICROSOFT??!

Captains wheel style controller, Oculus Rift and a game like Black Flag. I think I'd like to try that.

Btw, it sounds as if they're making some cool gameplay decisions with this AC.

I've sunk mega time into online, haven't even touched single player since last October. Even after all my time playing I'm still discovering new things in LS. Just broke lvl 200 last week and still having a blast. Got my second garage and filled it up. I searched for and found a large mature crew to roll with so even running private lobbies we can fill'em up. Last week I even ran an event where a bunch of us got together dressed up as bikers and rolled LS on choppers, was a blast. Even though R* has their heads up their asses on a lot of things, it's GTA, online, with up to 16 of your friends, pure video game awesomeness.

Yeah I'm going to give it another go when it hits the PC.

I already pretty much subscribe for the old Star Trek stuff, more is always good. Although for the life of me I don't know what people see in Deep Space 9.

o_O

Seriously? That's the best Star Trek show out there (mostly because it's just Berman & Co ripping off Babylon 5, but even so it's still awesome.)

It just takes a long time to get going. A very, VERY long time. But from season 4 and on, it's a heckuva show.

@ Forgedreality, yeah, Lwaxana was a fucking TERRIBLE character. Take everything that's irritating about Deanna, and then take away the few good things (mostly the way she looked. Hey, it was the 80s!), and tadaaa. I always felt so sorry for Majel Barret that THAT was the role they gave her... Babylon 5 treated her with much more reverence.

The biggest joke of all?

I can't play today. Disconnecting 5-15 minutes after starting any game. But, hey, at least somebody gets their achievements, right? Maybe there should be one for reaching 10,000 disconnects.

It's the benefits of always-online, dude!

Looks like it's running at 10fps

It's probably failbox footage.

7.5 minutes of crawling through torn up and abandoned shit and looking through a cellphone (for whatever reason), followed by 30 seconds of fairly bog-standard shooting.

Be still my beating heart.

There's not going to be a presence in all those 400 billion stars. Humanity will only have a presence in a few hundred of them, at most. That the rest is there, eh, it gives explorers a place to go, I guess. A few weeks after launch, someone will post a video of him reaching a star 80,000 lightyears away from whatever is considered to be the Terra system

Nine studios to essentially create the same game? Now we know where those 'tonnes of resources' are going.

All of Ubi's studios are basically involved in all of Ubi's games, which by now have morphed into mostly the same game just with some different graphics and a different storyline.

I don't blame them for it, it's hard to keep pumping out content at the pace they're doing without just unifying their games, and it's not like they're the only ones doing it. (Plenty of people have said that Dragon Age and Mass Effect are starting to look more and more similar as well, for example).

But they do seem to be taking it pretty far. You're just doing the exact same stuff in all their games now.

JOINING!!!!!

Or you could find a crew to actually play with

I've not seen a single BN crew member in GTA online in 5 months.

To be honest, that's kind of how it goes with every Blues guild/crew in every game.

I'll play online again once it hits the PC, I just got bored with the ever-increasing hax and bullshit I had to deal with when playing online, to the point where I finally only just played in a private session. At which point I was basically playing SP without the story, so what's the point?

So they are going to default 50,000 to 150,000 home routers in to becoming public hotspots. The question that immediately comes to mind is 1) what are they going to do to the issue of bandwidth caps and 2) whether the public traffic is counted towards the paying consumer? 3) It would be pretty shady to force share a paying user's connection and make them suffer through congestion and usage. 4) The other elephant in the room is how are they going to secure the consumers LAN against public traffic.

Comcast Wanker:

1) Nothing. Your bandwith caps will stay in place.
2) Yes, it is.
3) *crickets*
4) We're not. Nor will we safeguard you against people using your involuntary hotspot to download child pornography.

COMCAST, BABY!

Haven't played an AC since the second and I didn't see this game changing that but I will say it still disappoints me. Played Mass Effect 1 through twice. First time male. Second time female. Vastly enjoyed the voice acting and dialogue and atmosphere the female character presented far more than my male play through. Maybe it was because I played her as Renegade and the male as Paragon that added to that, but sometimes just having a female lead in a stereotypical male role is refreshing.

It's also pretty widely held with ME fans that Jennifer Hale does a far better job with renegade shep than Mark Meer does. Renegade femshep is absolutely the way to play.

Seems to me FDA needs to ask some of these drink manufacturers why their ingredient label fails to disclose the presence of high fructose corn syrup.

? It's on there (for most of them.) Usually as "sugar (high fructose corn syrup)".

There was a huge deal about two years ago about all the soda manufacturers trying to get the name of HFCS changed into something else, because it has such a negative association with it.

But it's on there.

Kinda bummed there was no Fallout 4 announcement

Was there anything new from Bethesda at E3 at all? (Apart from the Doom4 promo) Im kind of hoping for a new single player Elder Scrolls game...

You won't see that until 2016/2017. They've really only been working on that for about a year or so, so that's going to take quite a bit longer.

As for FO4, I imagine they'll announce it by the end of this year with a release date for 2015.

I seriously doubt we'll see anything of the caliber of TNG ever again. No, they'll be Lamebrams-ing up for sure. How else can you get the kids into Star Trek without all the pew-pew-pew and lens flare? Science, exploration, diplomacy? Those are for chumps!

To be fair, Abrams WANTED to make a TV series based on his rebooted version, and it would have contained the usual mix of science (ie, we're caught somewhere, and we can escape by manipulating a particle that has not existed up until this moment, and will never ever be mentioned again), exploration (ie, hey a cool new phenomenon, let's investigate, oh no, we're caught! Someone find a new particle to reverse the polarity of!) and diplomacy (STOP FUCKING FIRING AT US!).

And the cunts who own the rights to Star Trek TV series said "Nah. There's no demand for Star Trek. We'd rather make our usual horseshit and cancel it after 8 episodes."

The last Star Trek series to air on TV was Star Trek: Enterprise, which abruptly ended back in 2005 after just five seasons.

... FOUR seasons. "Geek".com my ass.

"A female character means that you have to redo a lot of animation, a lot of costumes [inaudible]. It would have doubled the work on those things."

So, in other words, your promises that you've "completely overhauled" the animation were just bullshit, and you're just copy-pasta'ing them from the previous AC, like you've done all over and over again.

In any case, yay, now they made another male lead, with a bland and utterly forgettable voice actor. They really were just crazy lucky with Ezio.
