While not perfect, Far Cry 3 and AC3 were pretty good PC ports. I don't love Uplay but its fairly innocuous and at least works with Steam in a roundabout way. I'm glad they backed down on their weird DRM strategy, they make a lot of interesting games and I didn't want to miss out on a bunch.

Ditto.
UPlay is annoying extra launch click for offline mode... but I can live with that.
I have the NIC in my gaming rig turned off 95% of the time... the exception is buying and downloading new games, patching, and playing GW2 (or some other MMO).

Not surprising.

They killed off Vault Network and Voodoo Extreme a little over a year ago, which pissed me off.

Wasn't Blues part of UGO at one time?

His answer wasn't very direct, or not entirely complete I'd say. I could see them changing their mind at some point. So unless it's stipulated in writing I wouldn't hold my breath. And at the very least they never said there wouldn't be a charge for used games - which there already is for multiplayer. I'm sure the other shoe has yet to drop on this issue.

True, but I read into that being probably the publishers pushing some online DRM component like EA's Origin... not Sony doing it themselves with the PS4. Which would put it on par with the PC... avoid EA games, then.

Well if I were to get a console... I'd be leaning towards the PS4.

won't block used games, doesn't require a constant internet connectection, and can avoid all the social network bs...
correcting link that is broken:
PS4 won't require constant Internet connection.

If I did get a console... it would be because I'm dissatisfied with my current bluray player's apps... I could go find a better one... but maybe the ability to play a couple of games would be nice too. A casual box for the wife and guests.

EDIT: Another is that they'll use Gaikai to let you try the game before you buy... that's a huge plus. I used Gaikai to try Saints Row the Third, because I was totally unsure of that series... and ended up buying it for my PC, even though there was a bit of input lag on Gaikai... a 30 minute trial was enough to convince me to buy it.

I've been in the NWO alpha for a while now and it's good for what it is - as mentioned - an ARPG. Classic D&D/NWN it is not - neither is DDO for that matter.

Which is probably why neither is my cup o tea... but I still find it difficult to believe that Cryptic isn't going to shit out some generic piece of crap, and then rely on everyone else to make their content for them, much like STO.

This game is about dead. NWO is going to kill this game. I was on the recent beta and had a great time. I dont see this game lasting much longer once NWO is released.

Are you serious?
Cryptic puts out nothing but garbage.
Then again... DDO ain't all that great either, IMO.

Haha. Where have you guys been? Borders closed all of its stores two years ago. It's already gone. Completely.

Well it must have went out with a whimper, because I never saw any headlines about that.

It figures, though.

I remember my trips to London (a decade or more ago), and hitting every HMV I could find, as well as the Tower (Piccadilly Circus, I think?). I swear to god, it seemed like there was a HMV about every block.

There was a Tower and Virgin stores in Vegas I'd always hit, too, but they're both gone...


Well... Barnes and Noble still sells CDs and Blu-Rays... but ridiculously expensive... can get the same Blu-Ray in a Walmart for $10 cheaper... and the CDs are still the same cost as 15 years ago??? Hah! (The only reason I'd get a CD is for ripping to MP3)

Also, with e-readers and tablets starting to sell e-books... I'm not sure how long Barnes and Noble, and Borders will be around. The Borders book store in my town, shut down 2 years ago. I have to drive 30 miles to get to Barnes and Noble, if I want a book right away. But otherwise I just order those online too.

It looks like HMV is the equivalent to Tower Records in the States... which brick and mortar-wise... is pretty much out of business and has been so for a long time. The only additional things that HMV seems to have is some computer hardware and some clothing.

It sucks... but getting blu-ray movies and such is just way cheaper online... and music CDs are pretty much dead now... so there's hardly a way to survive for these products (brick and mortar-wise).

I would hope that maybe a publisher (with brains) would fork over some money to see this through.

Publisher with brains. Erm yeah. Whatever.

I'm sorry... all publisher's brains have been eaten by the zombie survival horror genre. Thank you for playing.

Is this the patch that makes the OS functional on a Desktop Computer?

or, in other words...

Is this the patch that will let you turn off Metro without 3rd party hacks?

(I seriously doubt it... if anything it will probably block those hacks even more)

Fourth GPU's cant take on complex calculations, only simple ones unlike CPU's.

Uhh... not sure where you are getting that one... I'm pretty sure that GPUs are much more efficient at floating point arithmetic than CPUs. How many cores it takes to get that efficiency, I don't know. I do know that they wouldn't be using these cards for supercomputing if they couldn't do complex calculations.

I don't need to see benchmarks, its for forum braggarts

Well... if they are claiming 10x more powerful than their predecessor... I want to see proof.

I'm pretty sure they mean compute power, and not game average framerate power, though. The 6XX series was skimpy on compute... which most gamers don't care about anyway.

So yeah... I don't see this card being worth $1000 for gaming.

Best Buy's price-matching will only kill showrooming when their in-store selection is equal to the Internet's and they do the price matching automatically, not only when asked.

...and when they don't try to ram an extended warranty down your throat... and when they don't try to sell you a $5 HDMI cable for $35.

Bloody previews. No benchmarks. I hate that crap.
Looks like we won't see benchmarks until later this week, because the nVidia PR machine won't allow them.
