+1000 awesome points to Abrams for having the guts to totally toss Lucas's idea and hire the guy who did Empire instead. The Force is strong in this one.

Um...

16 gigs..... 4 as a memory cache. I'd go at least 8 now for sure, but more like 12 minimum. You want a little extra headroom vs consoles. The nice thing with the Ram is you can have a lot open in the background and everything still runs grand. The days of close everything to play a game are long gone.

And thank God for that. Oops, I want to play Half-Life. Time to stop half of my processes so I can get as much performance as possible. I do not miss that at all.

I talk to my dog, cat, and bunny because if they weren't around I would be talking to myself, and that's just crazy.

I use the same coffee, Blue. I just stick the bags in the recycling bin. I had no idea they even had such a program.

Yeah, but this isn't like FRAPS, it constantly records the last 20 minutes so you can save it when something noteworthy happens. Otherwise it just gets re-written. If you do that with FRAPS or a similar program you will fill up a 1TB hard drive damn quick. You would have to constantly erase footage you didn't need.

I'm fine with the memory requirement, even if it does seem excessive for a CoD game, but 40 gigs of HD space? Really? That's bigger than most MMOs. How exactly does a 4 hour shooter have that much content? Maybe every single texture in the game is 4096x4096? That's the only thing I can think of.

That's why I asked if they are using the Rage engine. It's the only shooter I can think of that was that big. For no reason, really, since mega-textures mega-sucked. My Guild Wars 2 folder isn't even 20GB.

huh? That is something you write an article about? wow. They must be hurting for info/good news to release something like that.

IN other news, some people only use one finger to operate both the RT AND R1 button! Amazing. AMAZING!

Well it had to happen sooner or later. I just didn't think it would be a Call of Duty game that did it.

Exactly. I mean, I have 16GB of RAM. It's not like I'm complaining that a game might use more. By all means, have at it, developers! It's just...COD? Really? I've seen the previews. WTF is using that much RAM in that game?

Holy shit, I can dig out my old Quake II PC to play the new COD? Excellent!


Oh, wait. I probably still won't play it.


EDIT: But seriously, 6GB of RAM and 40GB of HDD space for COD: Ghosts? Did they make it on the Rage engine? You know, the one that takes 30GB of space to display textures from 10 years ago?

I liked the original, aside form the clunky as fuck interface, but I will be waiting on this. Too many damn games release in a short period, and I'm still playing catchup with the inFAMOUS series, Midnight Club LA, and Red Dead Redemption.

I guess they figured that since they got away with crazy expensive CEs for Call of Duty they could do it with Titanfall too?

I love me some CEs - God knows I have bought enough of them - but that's stretching it. Reckoning cost about $200 with a huge ass troll figure and a bunch of other stuff, and I think that's the most I have paid. I wouldn't have even done that except I loved McFarlane's art for that game, and I used to buy his dragon figures which were awesome.

Hey, March 11th. Much earlier than expected. And the Titan diorama for the CE is pretty cool, but not $250 cool.

Some Swede Popped: “More features. More extras. More destruction,” Mr. Bach said, with a touch of frustration. “Every new game needs to be the next big thing.”

Every iteration of the Battlefield Series has become less about the player and more about the next big thing. So take heart as soon there won't be a game left at all to code DICE!

Bork-bork-borking the Player-Commander started in version 1.5 of Battlefield 2 (by disabling the AI commander). Completely removing it in BF3 and not replacing it in BF4.

Commander-less modern squad warfare without VOIP is now the state of the BF art so what's next in BF5, no soldiers?

Commander is back in BF4, in case you haven't heard.

They are trying to create a new type of military shooting game even as the genre confronts technological, narrative and public relations hurdles. If they fail, video games will be that much closer to extinction.

LOL at the melodramatic "journalist" shitting out this article.

Canadian customs was fun too. I went to Ottawa about 10 years ago to see one of my favorite bands play. (Sonata Arctica) My girlfriend at the time planned the whole trip, packed the bags, and had our entire itinerary. I was basically along for the ride.

The customs agents insisted we be in two separate lines. I tried to explain to them that it would work better at the booths if we were together, but they were having none of it because we were not married.

I got to my agent about the same time as she got to hers.
"How long are you staying in Canada for?"
"Uh, maybe like a week? I'm not sure." I turn and ask my girlfriend in a loud voice, since she is two lines over. "Hey, how long are we staying?"
"Two weeks," she replies.
"Two weeks," I tell the customs agent.
He gives me a look, shakes his head and asks the next question. "Where are you staying?"
"Uh..."I turn and ask my girlfriend in a loud voice, since she is two lines over. "Hey, where are we staying?"
She shouts back a French phrase, because we were staying just over the border in Quebec.
I turn and look at the guy, shrugging my shoulders. "Some French hotel."
He frowns and types in whatever my girlfriend said.
"And what are you doing in Canada?"
"Well, we're here for a concert, and then some tourism."
"Oh, where is the concert?"
I shrug and turn and ask my girlfriend in a loud voice, since she is two lines over."Hey honey!"
"Do you know what?" He interrupts, huffing. "Go stand with your girlfriend, tell them I said it was OK. NEXT!"

Good news about Hudson.

The airline thing: This is why I only fly when I absolutely have to. I've flown about eight times in the past 10 years. I am tall. I already do not fit in the cramped seating. I swear to God I almost went postal on the flight from Dallas to Hawaii. I could barely walk when i got there my legs and ass were cramped up so bad.

Not to mention that every single damn time I fly I am "randomly" chosen for extra security checks. Come on, assholes, we know it's not really random. Eight flights, eight "random" checks. Uh huh. They see the biggest guy in the line and decide to check him, never mind the Arab guy two people behind him who is statistically 100% more likely to cause an issue on the plane. They won't check him so they don't appear to be profiling, which is exactly what they are doing to me anyway.

On one flight they seated me directly behind the air marshal. BEHIND the air marshal. Wait, so you guys are so concerned about me that you check me every single time I fly, and then you seat me BEHIND the one guy on the plane with a gun. And you let me have things like a metal pen. And we wonder how planes get hi-jacked.

Why am I getting the feeling that neither console is ready for prime time? No headphone support from either one, games delayed left and right. We get it, you want the Christmas sales, but damn.
