I'm all for holding companies accountable but there's zero evidence of intentional false advertising here.

I don't think whether it was intentional has anything to do with it, it's still false advertising. And while everyone and sundry keeps going "Who the hell buys a card based on # of ROP?" that's beside the point. If you say your card has 64 ROP, it needs to have 64 ROP, not 56. If you say your card has 2MB of L2 cache, it needs to have 2MB of L2 cache, not 1.75.

Here's the thing though, it wasn't actually ADVERTISED as having those specs. That's just what nVidia was telling the review partners that those were the specs. On the acutal retail packaging none of that is mentioned, only the 4GB of VRAM, which it indeed has.

@suppa

Even at that, I'm 32, have been gaming all my life and personally am having a riot playing Dying Light on PC with my friends.

I have an Xbox One, and use it almost every night. Granted I'm not always gaming (YouTube consumption takes up most of the time, with some Netflix and a little TV), but I enjoy Forza 5, Forza Horizon 2, Master Chief Collection, and Dead Rising 3.

The Surface Pro is actually more akin to an Ultrabook without an attached keyboard.

I've set up a Pro 2 and Pro 3 for work. They're both good machines, but the Pro 3 really nailed it with the 4:3 screen. Much more natural in tablet mode that way. Very slick design, and the keyboard cover is actually really useful.

Because Mass Effect was always about multiplayer...

I guess it's just a must-have ingredient in games these days. If someone came out with a new take on Solitaire, it would probably have a multiplayer component.

Solebon Solitaire on the iPhone has multiplayer. You compete to see who completes the same shuffle first.

Consoles FTL!

Look at his post history, he has a tendency to repeat himself.

Haven't seen a cheater yet in Dying Light on the PC. But then I just play with my friends. Very fun that way.

With the PS4 something like 8 million ahead in sales and growing its kind of no brainer for Titanfall 2 to be on the PS4.

"Last year it was Xbox only"...

Except, you know, I own it for PC. Seriously, it wasn't really worth it anyway. I had fun for a few hours, and haven't played it since. At least I stuck to my guns and bought it after I could find it for less than $40.

Loot sucks, ability system is crap, the way you level up abilities is idiotic.

How is the way you level abilities idiotic? The more you use a particular type of skill, the more experience you get with it...

thanks guys. i went back to the archives all the way back to 27th when i was around. lots of mixed emotions/reviews around here. i am glad i didnt pre-order and hope for a strong summer/fall sale price.

I got in on a 4 pack with some friends, for that price I have found it very worth it so far. The only single player I have played has been to get out of the intro area so I can start playing with friends. Since then it's been a blast.

I can't figure out who's going to buy Hardline.


I'm having fun with it currently, but for being a game that's 1 month from release the polish on this game is, well, severely lacking. Definitely will not be worth the $60 they will charge if it releases in this current state.

Losing feeling in my toes.

Not a bad commercial. Quite funny. Better than the Papa John's ones IMO.

Forgive me for failing to read the article but there IS NO ISSUE with memory on the GTX 970. It has memory in two different locations with most of it in the first and the second only activates when it is necessary.

NVidia explained everything days ago.
The problem is when it starts using that memory actively it cuts performance by up to 50%.

This ^^^

Also, the specs that were released from nVidia prior were also incorrect, as the 970 doesn't have 64 ROPS among other things.

But the memory issue is very dodgy. Any time the framebuffer is filled and the remaining 512MB is accessed it cuts performance by the aforementioned figure. So if your game or whatever uses up to 3.5GB everything is hunky dory, but if it spills over even a tad you're hosed.

All things are not equal in the real world. Some no-name game from Namco going offline is far more likely than a hit game from Blizzard going offline. The Diablo 2 servers are still running 15 years after release.

Ah, but you'll still be able to play Diablo 2 even when the servers do eventually go down. Diablo 3? Not so much...

HoloStudio is shipping with the units/Windows 10.

You guys should seriously give a listen to Windows Weekly. Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurott give a lot of info on HoloLens.

I didn't find the previous beta all that terrible once I got used to the differences from BF4; but it would be nice to see all the changes that they've made to the game.

To be honest, while I was in the Army the physical fitness requirements were a joke then, and they're largely the same as what has been reported here.

But that's my take on things being an infantryman.

I know Blue's devout are primarily Apple haters anyway, but for those of us few Apple fans, that article is sadly spot on. I've felt that decline first hand since iOS 7 / Mavericks. I personally hope this wider spread ackowkegement and recognitions spurs Apple to shape up. And for the Windows / Android lovers, I hope there continues to be some form of competition for you to mock.

I got pissed at the state of Apple's devices when my contract came up on my iPhone4 that I went out and bought a Lumia 920 the day they were available. Loved the phone as long as I had it.

Now am using a Lumia 1520, and I am loving that too.

You know, it's as if these countries talk about invading the U.S. without considering the fact that a good portion of our Civilian population is armed. It's great that they think they can take on our Military 1 on 1, but they never consider the people that live here and know their land, but also own guns.

I associate balaclavas with nefarious activities so much, I'd do a double-take if I ever actually saw someone wearing one outside. I blame the IRA, and our cool temperate climate.

And I see them the other way. Everyone is issued one in Germany when I was stationed there, so we all used them because it gets friggin' cold out that way in winter.
