Awful trailer, looking forward to the game. Heretic Kingdoms was pretty damn overlooked.

Triple buffering options in the game itself? Has anyone done that before? First I've seen.

Pretty much every game had that... ten years ago. Back when vsync options, you know, worked.

With little in the way of originality or excitement, the only thing Lords Of Shadow 2 will deliver is crushing disappointment.

Lords Of Shadow 2 is a game with flair and gusto that constantly bogs itself down with design choices that should have never made it past the first week of studio meetings. Dracula deserves better.

Itís baffling that developers who garnered such acclaim for their successful 3D reinvention of a long-running series could not only fail to improve on their formula with the sequel, but make a game thatís distinctly worse in almost every possible way. Who ever thought playing as Dracula would be so thoroughly dull?

I guess I'll just spend $60 (this isn't fucking Skyrim) and prove these guys wrong, then?

Or not.

As part of the program, to protect survey participants and the public, it was important to know the extent of the drivers' drinking. To this end, a passive alcohol sensor (PAS), attached to the PDA with VelcroTM, was used to collect mixed expired air from approximately 6 inches in front of the driver's face

wtf!? Never heard about that. I use my nose....don't need a damn machine.

Around here they don't hold up in court and supposedly aren't very accurate.

TotalBiscuit thinks collectible virtual card games are the cat's ass, so what does he know.

Holy hell do I need a new game or what, been months without anything new to buy.

The most common, interesting, powerful, and fun reward is that you can use a heavily armed giant robot, something which is definitely distinct from a mech because it doesn't turn like a pig or require a minimum of seventeen buttons to effectively operate.

There is literally the exact same thing in Blacklight: Retribution, except smaller in scale.

I have a dual mon setup: TV (HDMI) and monitor (DVI). I set my default monitor to the TV, but with the TV off, it defaults to the LCD monitor. If I turn on the TV, it switches over seamlessly. There are glitches on occasion, especially if I have a game open already, but overall it works pretty well.

Yeah that's how it worked for me before the new hardware.

The biggest issue seems to be with sleep. Ever since getting an SSD I strictly use sleep, and HDMI does *not* like it. There's all sorts of shit around how to fix it from some stupidly overpriced $130 dongle to hackjob adapters on ebay, and apparently ATI drivers have a registry entry for fixing EDID problems, but for me it was killing pin 19.

I don't understand why Valve gives developers carte blanche with THE STEAM forums. There's been a glut of shovelware lately and repeated attempts by their respective developers to quash any criticism. This kind of shit is going to devalue Steam in a big way.

There is nothing wrong with the cable, it's a "feature" of HDMI and Windows 7.

...a chance to make their own judgment and help us counter these malicious and false reviews being put up by a select few and their mob in order to get back at us for banning, thus preventing them from disrupting our forums.

Just about had it with HDMI when I finally found the solution to my (enormous, migraine-inducing) problem, a problem which manifested immediately after going from a GTX460 to a GTX760.

As long as I've owned this card and regardless of updates to Windows and/or display drivers, multiple displays have NEVER functioned correctly. It extends the desktop when I don't want it to, fucks with my desktop icon placement, never fucking remembers which is the main display, or randomly refuses to even acknowledge my receiver is on and I'd like to USE MY FUCKIN SPEAKERS. The absolute worst offense was, with stunning regularity, Windows getting "stuck" in extended desktop mode and refusing to enable/disable particular displays, requiring a reset to remedy.

And the fucking solution?

A piece of tape. A tiny little piece of tape used to cover up pin #19 on the HDMI cable, the shitty little worthless cunt of a pin whose sole lot in life is to carry "event" (like, say, power on or off) signals between devices. I'm not sure what would be so god damn difficult for some asshole at nvidia or some even bigger asshole at Microsoft to look into and FIX this on the SOFTWARE END, but no, I'm stuck here solving 21st century problems with tiny pieces of tape.

That is a Windows function, what does it have to do with nvidia.

Didn't see this posted. Gameplay from new Eastern European-developed ARPG Lords of the Fallen. Looks like Dark Souls except, you know, it isn't kicking you in the testicles every thirty seconds. For better or worse.

The police came and the perp attacked them. They could have easily shot him dead for that, but instead shit him in the arm so he dropped the knife. The kid has a history of mental illness, and apparently went off his meds. Now he'll have a chance at recovery.

Anytime you're aiming a firearm you're supposed to be aiming/firing center mass. If your intent is not to kill you should be deploying a taser.

The problem isn't 3D movies; the problem is not every movie should be 3D. I've ponied up to see three so far: Avatar, Tron, and Gravity.

Rolling Stone had an article about it: http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/can-gravity-save-3d-20131012

Even James Cameron, who earlier this summer told Cuaron he thought too many movies were being released in 3D that didn't have to be, gave Cuaron's spectacle a thumbs-up. "I was stunned, absolutely floored," the Avatar director told Variety. "I think itís the best space photography ever done, I think itís the best space film ever done, and itís the movie Iíve been hungry to see for an awful long time."

Cameron's earlier skepticism toward the format he'd helped popularize came during a summer when audiences routinely ignored 3D screenings if 2D screenings were available. 3D movies were opening with 3D sales percentages of about 30 percent, nowhere near Gravity's 80 percent. Industry observers were wondering: had the 3D fad run its course?

The short answer was no, especially since overseas audiences, which now make up the bulk of a Hollywood movie's box office, still haven't tired of the gimmick. Indeed, when Gravity opened abroad, it did about 70 percent of its business in 3D on its first weekend. In Russia, the figure rose to 75 percent; in Italy, 95 percent; and in Germany, 97 percent.

It seems to me most of the 3D movies are for kids. Who the fuck is going to pay more so their five-year-old can experience Disposable Kids Movie # 14,032,238 in 3D?
