So they are (possibly) releasing a game that has "meh" reviews and not one that has stellar reviews.

Logic is lost.

And they will charge $60 for it when it finally comes out on PC because its "NEW".

If ROCKSTAR themselves ported RDR to the PC with all the content for 60 bucks I'd buy it on the day of release.
Sorry but no. There is no way I can spend $50-60 on a game that comes out MONTHS after consoles anymore because its "new". Only to then usually get shafted buy DRM or their pathetic "we had to delay the game for PC enhancements" bullshit.

Already dumped my Batman:AC preorder. Will pick it up when the price tanks around Christmas.

It does do something amazingly spectacular. Tried to run it on my box at work, which has two graphics cards in it. An FX4800 and an FX580, both of which power one monitor. (Hey, it's a box I cobbled together from spare parts.)

Every single game I play simply defaults to the FX4800, which is connected to a 30" monitor.

Rage, however, seems to only want to play on the FX580, which powers a 22" monitor. Try as I may, I can't get it to play on the graphics card that's 90 times more powerful. (other than disabling the FX580, I guess.)

Errr, okay, John Carmack. I'm glad you're doing all the auto-detecting for me, I guess?

Edit : Disabling the 580 does force it to the 4800. However, I basically have no graphics. I see part of the skybox, and a few black outlines and that's it. Strange.

Guess this will have to wait until I get home.

Friend has an issue like this because he has a dedicated PhysX card. Game is running off the POS PhysX card not his 580.

So you use inverted mouse in flight sims and non-inverted in other games?

Then you must have some kind of superior brain. Like those people who are equally good with both hands ...
Yeah actually I do. Well the first line anyhow. Can't write with my left hand for shit. Grandmother could do both but she was born a lefty but in school was FORCED to write with her right hand because that's what they were taught.

Anything that my brain sees as 'flying' makes me pull the mouse back (towards me) to go up and forward (away from me) to go down. But in FPS, 3rd person games I pull the mouse towards me to look/aim down and push away from me to look/aim up.

I would have ditched games like Battlefield years ago if they did not have independent options for if you were in a flying vehicle or not.

Hell now because if FFXI I have to invert left/right movement in 3rd person games (Uncharted) but leave them as default when I go into first person (aiming). FFXI's left/right look by default is biased on where the camera is not where your looking. So when you move the stick to the left you look right and vice versa. Opposite of like... everything else. I played the game so much over 8-9 years it is burned into my brain now. But after playing for a hour I can get used to the norm again. Its not really an issue.

Inverted aim? Its a FPS/3rd person game not a flight sim.

Retarded people have their heads on inverted.

"Consumers are right to complain about DRM, since it impacts both legitimate and illegitimate users,"
No Pachter, you moronic toolbag. DRM only impacts legitimate users. Pirates don't give a shit because its cracked in days and now do not have to worry about your DRM servers going down because some fat fuck intern spilled his ramen on a router.

This is part of the reason I bought from Amazon for release day delivery. 25 gigs is a big chunk out of my Comcast bandwidth cap...

Oh, and I get a $10 credit, plugging the key into Steam anyway.
25GB of 250GB? What do you do with the other 225GB?

Bedsides its the end of the month. Caps roll over tomorrow.

If it's only delayed a month I would be super surprised. The first three came out 4-6 months later on PC.
Srsly... wasent 2 delayed like 3 times making it 6 months late?

As for PC versions being delayed at the LAST SECOND... this is hardly a shock.

External server browsers are so 1998.

We go from having to use QuakeSpy to ingame server browsers back out to a webpage? This isn't QuakeLive. The game needs a ingame browser.

As for the alt+tab and alt+f4 being a acceptable method why don't we just end task the game while we are at it? Rolleyes

News Comments > Two Deus Ex: Human Revolution DLC Packs

The sniper rifle in any form is usless in DE:HR. It is no where near as useful as it was in DE1. The areas just are not open enough to make it any easier than just getting up close and doing hand-to-hand or with one of your other weapons.

Not once did I wish I had a suppressed sniper rifle over a suppressed pistol with the AP upgrade. Laser sight on top of those just made it a joke. The sniper rifle in DE1 was invaluable.

Also the fact that you have PERFECT aim with scoped weapons from the get-go is just stupid. I liked how you had to upgrade that in DE1. Yes the scope bobed in a predictable pattern so you could still headshot but it make things a bit more realistic.

People are pissing and moaning over a one time activation? Do these fuckheads even play anything other than farmville on their PC's?

One time activation online is tame as shit compared to what else is out there. This whole thing is so stupid it makes my head hurt.

It was harder to pull out your manual turn to page X and find word 46
Seriously. I love the people who are like 'My internet connection isn't good! Im on dialup!"... really? If your connection is so bad you can't connect for 30 seconds to authorize your copy you have serious issues.
