Wow, free upgrade to Windows 9? What happened to Microsoft? It's almost as if they've started caring just a little bit about their customers...

It just means they're pushing it out the door sooner, rather than later, and know there'd be a backlash otherwise...

It doesn't take much work to revert the touch UI back to what we already head and put a few new modest improvement in there. The formula is already known.

Well yes but how much does voting really do? And the notion of 'democracy' is nebulous anyway. The term 'republic' is more clear since it implies a government that that is empowered by the people while 'democracy' can impose mob rule and tyranny.

The people are speaking and it's pretty clear what they are wanting.

Incomplete buggy messes? : )

I interpret it as a an upwelling of resentment and rejection of the streamlined uninspired AAA console games. Though it could also be that the community loves being a part of the development process because that does make a better game when the developer listens and makes the right choices on the feedback.

For years now all the IT openings I see are for senior level positions with lots of experience and certifications. Is this because they fill the entry level positions with cheap foreigners?

Good for them. It's a solid game. I just found the gameplay to devolve into a action shooter with effects flying everywhere. I love the level 1 gameplay though. Too bad that doesn't last.

I dunno, I don't much care for this QTE-style combat adopted from Screed and Arkham. Instant counters, traversing yards at a time instantly, "press A to do spiffy animation attack"... all makes me feel pretty detached from the action. Wish they'd gone with a more deliberate, tactile system.

This. This looks to be a generic and repetitive console game. Press awesome button to win.

The thread linked in the article has further insightful discussion.

The ASUS Strix's three heatpipes are better designed to cover the GPU with thinner dividers and the card itself has better quality components. However the benefits of the EVGA ACX card are that EVGA has much better customer support and that the ACX cooler/card is smaller than the Strix (and smaller than other competitor's custom coolers).

Well by the looks of it, those two 8mm pipes cover the GPU completely. There's no more room for the 6mm. Also the way heat moves through metal might not require the 6mm pipe make direct contact anyway, or at least make much of a difference. I've seen the critics hark on this design but have no evidence or proof it would be better if the GPU was aligned to touch all three heat pipes. Maybe it would.. Maybe it wouldn't... I'd like to see it tested.

Unfortunately the thing holding it back is the biggest part of the game. The combat is just completely basic and poorly balanced.

Yeah its kind of simple compared to say D:OS, but so far its fun.
Mods will fix it.

How moddable is the game? Does it support steamworks or allow Nexus Mod Manager type of modding?

You just described every single 80s arcade game. Including the one in your avatar. Just sayin'. No better gaming than in the 80s and Gauntlet was damn near at the center, literally when you walked into an arcade. It was either right up front or in the middle where everyone could watch. Love it.

It was all about perfecting a game. Not point A to point B save a million times multiple tries. Rouge likes are about as close as we can get to arcade games.

True the arcade games were usually limited and repetitive. Complete this stage, advance to the next with the same foes ramped up in difficulty. Personally I found Berzerk combat more entertaining and involved. There was tactics involved in getting them to shoot each other and collide and it required planning while fighting. Not true nearly so much with Gauntlet.

Also with Berzerk, the later stages the game really opened up with an open world, a full loot system (better guns), shops to sell and trade and an auction house where you could insert lots of quarters to buy a gold plated pistol for example. Also there were taverns where you'd learn about Evil Otto and why he was headless and was hell bent on chasing you.

Better than FH Mod for BF2? I've found that the most complete WW2 FPS but if these are the only servers then maybe it's only played on weekends these days.

I'll give this game a try again. Glad they are still around and updating it. I hope they are moving to UE4 for their next MP FPS game.

I know it's a classic, but I always thought the original sucked. Just not very fun and and not good value for the quarters you had to pump into it. It would be weird to play it without needing to pay...

Thinking about it.. The original did a few things very well though. It had great sound, great game flow and four player coop. It did the coop very well too. But yes the actual gameplay was limited and repetitive.

Greenlit games should let you play it for free for two days to try it out while sandboxing the game so it can't fuck your Windows install.

Well I mean its up to you of course but you can get 60fps from a lesser card in most titles, especially if you back off Ultra settings/detail maxes. There are of course outlier titles so its hard to account for everything. In general 1080p isn't very demanding and I'm sure there will be a 960 at some point too for 1080p configs. This kind of card is better for a 1440p+ type setup IMO.

Your advice applies to novice or low end gamers. I don't agree with this for the more demanding 1080p gamers. For 1080p @ 120+hz we certainly need cards like these new ones. Also many people are sensitive to framerate dips so in their case a faster card makes a difference. Also people buy newer cards for upcoming games that will be much more demanding @ 1080p, especially at higher/est quality settings. 1080p can still be a good resolution for these high end cards!

They probably bought it right off the .buy site. Now I'm trying to find a product entry on Amazon to buy Amazon. I wonder what that page would look like.
