News Comments > Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Requires 6GB of RAM

Agreed. 6GB of RAM is a reasonable expectation for new game in 2014. Maybe since it is requiring more RAM it will be a better game for it.

If you haven't noticed the current gen consoles came out as abortions, woefully underpowered to the point it didn't make a blip on our pc specs.

This always bugs me. Yes, these consoles can't touch the performance of a gaming PC. But using the PS4 as an example, you do realize that Sony needs to put together hardware and sell it for $400 and still make a profit? What mistake did they make in the design? What should they have done instead that could still match that price point?


Historically it's a blunder. All consoles prior were near top pc spec or beyond pc spec at release. These were released middle road pc's. I get your point, but at the same time, this gen was different from the past. We are not really moving all that forward because of it.

This. Sony doesn't need to make a profit on the PS4 units from day 1. Initially they sold PS3's at a loss iirc. Same with x360. I think they took example from the Wii this time around and decided that gimmicks were more important than hardware capacity.

So the PS4 got a touch screen on the gamepad as its gimmick and the xbone got a creepy spycam motion sensor. Meanwhile the previous notion that putting out a console with bleeding edge performance took a back seat this time. Thankfully they did bump the RAM which was a huge and costly bottleneck for developers last generation.

They're going to do it anyway and when you protest they'll gas you, shoot you with rubber bullets and then hold you in prison as a 'rioter'. They'll use your protest or lack of compliance against you in the public arena of controlled media propaganda and their own courts.

They are far more willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want and they have the means to do it. Fear, violence and psychological warfare are amongst their weapons against us and they will use them.

I'm intrigued but why pay $40 for this when I can play TomeNET for free any time? At that price it had better be the best rogue-like ever.

It seems to be an improvement over LoG1 and true to the roots of the genre. Doesn't feel like a console game in the slightest. Has outdoor areas and if you beat it day one, you click a button to get a free pizza delivered to your house.

Arthur Gies is a path of least resistance douchebag, as in he takes the shortest path to pissing people off that he can in virtually every circumstance. He doesn't really have personal opinions, he just flipflops around on whatever he thinks will drive the most attention.

This is another weird sentiment. nin said it about me yesterday.
"Someone has a different opinion than I do, they must be trying to get attention!"


Well FWIW Beamer I don't get that vibe from your posts here. We love you man! (man?)

“This finding is the kind of science that is literally going to make geologists rewrite the textbooks about the moon,”

This is common in astronomy but they word it this way to save face for the institutions involved who get a lot of public money who said very authoritative statements later found to be wrong as was their hypothesis that the moon has been geologically dead on the surface for a billion+ years.

Well BL2 is awesome so if it's a lot like that, great! I've seen screenshots of this and it looks just fine as far as fidelity on PC. That said $60 is above my limit. I still haven't played any of the DLC for BL2 even.

Yeah, I don't get it. Bad timing? I'm about to the end and have enjoyed every moment of it. I actually got bored with D:OS and haven't finished it.

For fans of the genre it's well priced but for the bigger audience they might be asking too much right now.

Yes well said C. The Blame Game is a high priority in Government. Taking responsibility is not. Narcissists can't understand the adverse consequences of their actions and don't want to take responsibility for them.

The gameplay I saw was all indoor settings and I view that as not a good thing (tm). BL2 was worth full price, not sure about this. Probably not...

What I do wish they'd do is invest some time in to the story.

It wasn't relevant. You're in a dungeon: escape before you die.

Yeah adding much story to a game like this is a bad idea. It's a focused dungeon crawler game, not Skyrim or Witcher 3. Adding story to this sort of game is like adding story and a campaign to a Battlefield game. There are games that can be ruined by anything more than a simple story and this is one of them.

I agree with the notion that complicated and involved puzzles can be off putting. A puzzle needs to be fun, firstly. Fun can mean complicated if it's done right. But a poorly executed complicated puzzle can be a game killer too.

$25 is certainly the upper end of what the market will bear in the US, I believe.

Actually I think the way we drive cars is terrible since it's so 20th century. Using an actual wheel and pedals while sitting down? Why can't we just sit on the roof and face backwards while wearing an occulus rift in a bikini? So the question to ask here is the occulus wearing a bikini or do we? Either way that would be better because it would be new!

Duh. What else is he supposed to do? Admit it's all true?

LOL yeah how often do developers or publishers admit rumors that put them in a bad light? I've played the game and it does seem like a tech demo and AJ's review notes the glaring shortcomings of the game. It might be fun but yeah, I inclined to believe the rumor.

How did you manage to get it for $15? Was it an upgrade or full install?
It was probably the upgrade from vista/7 program. That's how I got mine, but there was also another promo that MS was running for the pro version that was also $15. Anyway for anyone interested G2A does have copies of Win8 pro for ~15 right now via the marketplace. Regardless of whether or not it was the upgrade or not it's trivial to activate it from a clean install.

Thanks a lot for the tip! It worked great and now I have an extra copy of 8.1 for $15. I already activated it and it went flawlessly. I'm going to buy a couple more keys. All I had to do was acquire the installer for Windows 8 which I then updated to 8.1 and entered my new key. Simple as that. Thanks again

I can't find it on the G2A site for $15. I saw it for $50. Now their website says:

This product is currently out of stock.

Also I can't find the upgrade only the full version (I think). Would someone please provide a link or directions to find the $15 version?

Edit: oh nevermind. Must have been a script or privacy blocker. Tried it in Opera and the little applet shows the cheaper options. Thanks!
