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.

Maybe the PC crowd isn't as interested in yearly COD updates?

Maybe they aren't interested in cruddy console ports, which is what they all are nowadays.

I don't own one Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, nor Battlefield game... and I have a ton of FPS's in my collection.... Far Cry 3 being the most recent. (Well, I do have Battlefield 1942, but I never could get into it)

I just want it to work. I've had black screen crashes since the day I bought it. I think I've played a grand total of 15 minutes.

Well, you're not supposed to put an XBox 360 disc in your PC.

Well... since I have no interest in the Borderlands games... and they fucked up Duke (which was semi-understandable) and this game... I can honestly say that I'll never buy a Gearbox game.

I guess Opposing Force and Blue-shift will remain the only games I ever got from them.

Perhaps I just look at the movie differently than most.

Maybe being light on the morality issues had to be done because they were establishing the timeline split... so it's really a beginning.

And technically... there were morality things brought up, they just were not "in your face". Resolution conflict with others and within ones self (Spock Specifically). Kirk's persistance to fight for what he believe's is right (taking on the Roumans instead of regrouping with the fleet).

If you don't like the movie because it wasn't being "preachy", like most episodes of either series, that is fine, and that is your opinion. But others feel that the essence of the original series characters is there, and there is more to come as the movies dig deeper into those characters. Remember, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy were intended really represent different facets of one person.... which was brilliant of Roddenberry... and those facets have to really come out in order to start dealing with morality issues on a higher level. The first movie concentrated more on the timeline split than anything... now there's more room to explore other areas.
