Blue, there's a "betty crocker cake mix" quiz ad that throws up pop-ups. Just as an FYI. It closes readily enough, but pop-ups typically make people quickly reach for the adblocker again.

Why are you searching for cakes? ;P

Because... CAKE!

Finally, I want to read about somebody having a successful game with a Heavy Weapons user as one of their four... HW chews through rifle ammo so fast I can't see it being viable, when you loot like 3-4 bullets or less, every so often.


Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Energy Weapons, Pistols all the way.
Maybe one shotgun guy to use up shotgun ammo.

HW is just not viable. You can buy the ammo, but you'll literally be spending all your cash on nothing BUT HW ammo.

Assault rifles / sniper rifles all the way. Shotguns are terrible (the cone typically hits your own guys more than you ever get a chance to hit multiple enemies), and while SMGs are okay, I doubt there's actually a better SMG anywhere to be found in Arizona than the shitty Greaser you start out with. So now my entire party does 40-50 damage from M16s and Bullpup sniper rifles, and my poor SMG gal is still standing there doing 10 damage.

Assault rifles are so overpowered, really, that there's little point to taking anything else except one or two snipers. Just sell all the other ammo you find.

Have to agree, Wasteland 2 is a lot of fun. Somehow I've acquired two cows and a goat, which is making the combat a bit tedious - I can't bear to see the poor things killed and keep reloading...

You know you can just dismiss them, right?

No... it's if you buy this crappy DLC the next crappy 'new one' is free.

No, it shows up as "Free" in the Steam store, and when you go to "purchase" it, the buy button is a download button. So this one IS definitely free if you own Rebirth.

Clicking the download button doesn't do anything for me, though.

"Life is Feudal" hohoho, quite clever. The videos of it actually look pretty good, but it's still in "Early Alpha..." for $40.


Buy now! As long as you guys keep buying it, we'll keep developing it! (*)

If it's free, why do I have to pre-order it? That makes little to no sense. Anyway, just did and it's not showing up in my DLC list for X Rebirth, so that works just great, much like the rest of the game.

In any case, their ongoing quest to make this an actually playable game is appreciated, but it's just absolutely absurd how many problems this game had. We're roughly twenty patches in, and they're STILL FIXING CRASH BUGS.

Fucking Comcast.

"It bothers us that we have so much trouble delivering a really high quality service level to customers whining from people about wanting customer service on a consistent basis. It is not something we're ignoring it as much as we can, but then you ungrateful fucks have to keep going to the press with it. WHY CAN'T YOU JUST PAY THE FUCKING FEES AND STOP WANTING ACTUAL PRODUCT FOR IT? GOD!!!" he said.

And it's pretty hilarious that you mentioned Skyrim. Skyrim is the perfect example of how not to take advantage of modern hardware. Muddy ass 5 pixel textures that you immediately have to replace with high rez modded ones that, surprise, eat up VRAM like candy.

And then cause the engine to fucking crash.

Am I the only one who thought in the first 10 or 12 seconds 'Damn, those are good graphics! How did they get the trees that realistic?' Then we see a developer and I realize it's all real.

Or IS IT?! *DUN DUN DUUUUUNNNN*

Texture resolution has a negligible impact on framerate. Doesn't really matter if you're using 512x512 or 4096x4096 textures, your framerate will be about the same.

IF you have enough VRAM. If not, go ahead and give it a try, and tell me how your framerate "stayed the same."

That said, using super high-res textures can cause hitching if you don't have enough VRAM but how frequent that is has yet to be seen.

Errr, so what is "hitching" in your world then, if not drastic drops in your frame rate?

6GB? Does the Titan Black even have that?

I guess you'd need to SLI, but I thought SLI didn't effectively double your memory, as both cards were still drawing the same image and thus needed to have the image into memory?

Still, it's cool they're releasing a high-reS pack.

Inspired by great games like The Banner Saga, FTL and XCOM.

Do those three actually have anything in common, combat-wise? "Our combat system was inspired by Zaxxon, Mario Kart and Farmville!"

I'm really worried about my pick on the Panthers/Ravens match more than any other pick this week. Niners and Eagles is another one that's tough to call.

Also kudos to Batman for choosing the ESPN site, its waaaay better than BTI. Much more useful info and lot of stats available. BTI was so basic last year and a few times it didn't save my picks properly.

Fucking Panthers. Fuck those guys. DON'T LOSE AT HOME WHEN I FUCKING PICK YOU!

It looks cool enough that I might be tempted to get it day one, but right near the end I saw a little "internet connection required" thingy. Not sure if that was just for the pre-order stuff, or if the game is always-on... Anyone have any idea?
