I'd like to see a compatibility list for the huge catalog of PC games released in the past five to ten years. That's my biggest concern with Win8: not being able to play even one of my existing games puts me off.

Obviously doesn't want real decentralization on the internet. How else can they abolish net neutrality and continue their deep packet inspections unabated?

And if the gubment wants to take a crack at doing somethign right then reform the fucking patent system and stomp these patent trolls out of existence in the process.

Strawmen. I'm sure there are selfish reasons why they did this but the UN is far worse. On the face of it, this looks like good news to me.

When I was looking to get a new video card not long ago I was looking at all the requirements of the top FPS games and none required the best video card at that time. Although I don't recall them having a separate 'recommended' and 'hi-performance' category either..

Ahh.. Well IMO that's not the best way to go about getting a new vid card. Performance is highly dependent on your monitor's resolution, which publishers don't specify in their specs. Also they don't take into account your preference for the quality settings or frames you prefer. If it's important to you and you game on PC frequently enough, just buy the most you can afford.

Really, buying based on publisher specs is hit & miss (more miss). Their specs are suggestive. I never put too much weight in them. I'd rather them put a few charts out, depicting gpu vs cpu bound, performance scaling, resolutions, etc.. But that would probably be just too much information for what most people want to know. But there's no easy way around it, getting good game performance is not easy to understand on PC. It's been that way for a long time, too.

So in my opinion, specs like this information here is just a rough estimate of what to expect, and only to give a rough idea of how the game will perform. Too often, their specs are wrong. gl hf

Wow, a GTX680 and i7 CPU recommended for hi-performance.

Why is that a 'wow'? Not trying to criticize Crytek/Crysis here.. Just saying that for a new FPS with lots of eye candy, isn't always a given that you'll need the 'latest and greatest' pc hardware? Otherwise there's little point in buying high-end equip..

I'm glad all requirements show DX11 though.

I consider this a mistake on their part since I'm guessing that DX10 hardware will play it, but the DirectX 11 software needs to be installed. The low-end cards listed indeed are DX10 cards.

What are the CoH games like?

It's a great RTS for teenagers. It's fun and a good game, but just ... arcadey. If you like RTS games on PC, it's a must buy at this price, but don't expect realism. Quite the opposite.

You are replacing electricity with inefficient food energy conversion. So someone please fire these researchers. The last thing we need is "energy" food that we have to eat just to keep our heart beating or smart-phone working. I mean, I can't be the only one who has seen enough sci-fi to know why this is a bad bad bad extremely bad super mega bad idea.. right?

Exactly. And what about dead people or more specifically, zombies.. The phones won't work for them??

If implemented well, MP could be great fun though. But there's no evidence they'd give us a good MP experience. Stick to SP since you suck at MP. If you try hard and give us a proper MP experience with anti-cheat, dedicated servers, server browser, modding, coop MP, etc or keep it simple and just stick to SP.

raising kids to accept that their movements and activities are monitored at all times has no positive endgame.

Everybody already has a cell phone.

True, but big difference. Phones can still be anonymous, and friends can borrow them. You also also opt to -not- carry a phone any time you want. These 'ID' tags are the opposite. Their sole purpose is to track children, not make phone calls. It can be easily deduced that since it is an educational institution, that the children are being taught to submit to tracking. They are being taught to be as cattle and being denied their inalienable human rights is part of being a 'good citizen.' The opposite is true.

The school are only trying to justify funding by giving proof of attendance.

Exactly. For the local schools, it's about money (greed). It usually is. The funds come from the state govt, and their motive is something else. That being, compliant cattle to exploit.

it was an attack on a stupid feature that (whether they meant to include it or not) they knew would cause controversy.

It was just the first witch hunt in what was hoped to be a long war on gaming. But thankfully the public didn't seem to fall for these grandstanding narcissist politicians. Or more likely, they found another more profitable war to wage as in the war on the Dollar to bail out their cronies.

If all Google Fiber does is make cable companies start caring more about customer service, it will be a big win for the country.

This. Also, why should we have to beg Google? Why can't we just end the duopoly and let an open market end our being raped by Comcast/Verizon/Time Warner? The duopoly is corporate socialism and the sanity of it needs to be questioned.

21% of you suck and are miserable excuses for human beings.

It's high time we just start taking away fucking licenses for that horseshit. Oh, you can't get to your job without a license, and thus can't take care of yourself? Tough fucking luck. Maybe in six months when you get your license back, you'll not have more important things to do than the actual act of fucking DRIVING.

I'd put all of them in jail for 20 years, but our jails are already too full. So taking away driver's licenses seems like a decent first step.

McCullagh lists multiple federal agencies that would have "civil subpoena authority" to access digital correspondence under the tweaked legislation. He reports that these agencies would include, among others, the Federal Reserve, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Maritime Commission.

The Fed Reserve is no more part of the Federal Govt. than is Federal Express. In other words, they aren't federal. Neither do they have reserves but that's besides the point.

James Baker, the associate deputy attorney general, has publicly warned that requiring a warrant to obtain stored e-mail could have an 'adverse impact' on criminal investigations."

Fear mongering, police-state words such as these should be met with great skepticism and caution. The word 'criminal' in this case could be anything he wants it to be, or what others years from now decide. Everything you say in your personal e-mails can and will only be used against you by the authorities. Who are the terrorists?

Conflict of interest. The WB stands to make trillions on their carb credit and other schemes. Also they say they work against world poverty but it's the opposite. As if they cared about the environment with all their dirty fundings over the decades. What irony, and propaganda.

Thanks for the heads up. I know I won't be buying this game.

Ditto. I take that statement as saying that they don't care about catering to their customers.

Here I'll translate:

"Don't fucking as us to increase the FOV cap. We're going to make a fuckton of money off this game and that's good enough. We are arrogant enough assholes that we make public statements taunting you to get mad but we think you're so stupid you'll buy the game anyway. Even after we publicly tell you to fuck off we'll put <3 symbols in our tweets because we love nauseating you PC players with kiddie console FOV settings. Thankyouverymuch youcanhaveanother."
