Can there be a difference between GPUs with regards to IQ? Sure. Like I said, ATI has pretty much always had a slight edge in IQ vs Nvidia, but that's a difference that's noticeable only if you compare side by side screenshots.

That has actually not been true for a few years by now. nVidia has long taken the lead in IQ thanks to a much better implementation of AF and slightly better AA modes. The argument that ATI may be a tad bit slower but offers better IQ is obsolete and has been for a long time already (like when the ATI 9800s were around). You may want to update yourself on this stuff some time.

Don't hold your breath. It'll be some shitty console game. Bank on it.

Exactly. I feel sorry for anyone who is retarded enough to hope for a proper TIE/XWing sequel.

Oh boy do I remember the Matrox Millenium. Mine came with Destruction Derby, which I loved...but the box in which the video card came in had this freaky looking clown face on it.

If the box had a clown face then you had a Matrox Mystique and not a Millennium, you n00b!
The Millennium came out first and it was always the "professional" 2D card with basic 3D functionality while the Mystique was the gamer variant.
A couple years after WC3, a lot of people in the mid 90s had a Millennium for 2D (Windows/Office) plus a 3Dfx Voodoo for gaming. The Mystique became completely useless once the Voodoo and other better 3D cards came out because Voodoo > TNT > ATI Rage 3D Pro > Mystique.

Wow! I loved the WC Series. Wasnt sure if they would have it or not. It was like 3 or 4 cd's. Sucker barely ran on my machine. Had to upgrade to a 486dx2 I think it was.

As far as I can remember I had a 486DX2-40 at the time and that was not enough to run the game. You needed at least a DX2-66 but the real fun started at Pentium P5-60/66+ upwards.

Looks like I'm going to have to sift through 450 comments of love and hate upon game release, before deciding to buy this game.

No you won't. You can make up your mind right here, right now. Just like BioWare games, Bethesda games are very formulaic. They are never reinventing the wheel from one game to the next. There is always the same underlying recipe. They just iterate and they might try a different flavor here and another spice there but overall you will always recognize the basic formula.

Skyrim will not be any different. It will be Oblivion v2.0. If anyone truly disliked Oblivion (or Morrowind or Daggerfall etc.) then chances are slim you will all of a sudden fall deeply in love with Skyrim.

I quite sincerely hope that the number of tards who buy Skyrim just because of the hype, expecting it to be vastly different from previous ES games, is going to be pretty low. It's always a bit of a major pain in the ass when you have to wade through thousands of dumbass forums posts from idiots who are too fucking stupid to buy the right fucking game for themselves.

As others have mentioned, the UI in these videos is terrible. Every single menu involves scrolling. Want to check your inventory? Scrolling. Want to check your stats? Scrolling. Want to check the map? Scrolling.

It's called Elder Scrolls, dumbass, so STFU and deal w/ it mkay?!

I'm imagining a COD MMO, where 12 year olds pay a monthly fee "an annual subscription" and sit around all day talking smack and camping spawn points.

I may not be 12 but I'm all for talking smack and camping spawn points. Where do I sign up?

My assessment is that nearly all the complaints about DRM come from pirates and cheaters

That is my assessment as well. 100% ack. People want their free games. Or actually they don't just want them. They even feel entitled to them. So every time a new DRM scheme poses a potential threat to those freebie fuckfaces, the little pussies will go squealing and squirming and throw a hissy fit about how DRM is unfair.
They are unfortunately too retarded to realize that they are helping to dig the grave of PC gaming even deeper but the day of a rude awakening is coming closer with every single illegal download and I will LOL big time once the day has come where no one is making PC games for assholes to steal anymore.

They are an EA studio, none of this sounds implausible.

It sounds extremely implausible because while they might be an EA studio they are an EA studio in Germany where working north of 35 hours per week is considered as slavery and where people get 30+ days of vacation per year in addition to any federal or national holidays and where you have health insurance, welfare and unemployment caretaking coming out your ears'n'ass.
So the poor Crytek crybabies prolly had to work a regular nine to five 40 hour week for three months and are now making a fuss about their "inhuman" working conditions. Yup. Totally plausible.

I guess we're all used to seeing all sorts of really stupid shit on the Internetz but congratz on a job exceptionally well done to the retard who wrote that piece of shit DXHR benchmark "article".
Let me get this straight... the dude got a warez version of DXHR (note the quotes around "dirty hands" which seems like a clear hint that he is not playing a legit version), then he goes on to seriously complain about "choppy graphics" and then he's even got the balls of steel to provide screens as "proof" that are showing that the "choppy" game is running at a min fps of 90+ and generally well above 100 on average. On the highest settings at that. DirectX 11 and all. C'mon. Seriously. Que el fucko, hombre?!?

Anyway...to reply to CJ_Parker, I have a hard time not supporting a company that is:

4) Actually listening to, and respecting their PC customers.

Ah you mean "respect" as in when they pretended for shits'n'giggles that they were out of business and that everyone lost access to the games that they bought throughout the years? Or "respect" as in when they actually did cut us off for three or four days from our games to get their lame relaunch shit together? Or "respect" as in shutting down the official The Witcher 2 forums on their website right before the release of the game?

Yup. I'm simply overwhelmed by all the big phat respectz that these guys have been showing us .

10. Re: Aug 15, 2011, 21:01 CJ_Parker
 
While this is great product support it begs the question why anyone should continue to be idiotic enough to buy a CDP game at full price at release. This is the second game where they bring substantial content updates as well as gameplay improvements and new features to the table via "free" (actually anyone who bought the game paid them up front for any post-release services) patches to create an ultimate super duper platinum uber director's cut version of the game.
I'm really a bit torn on these tactics. It's nice and cool on the one hand but also incredibly lame on the other since it feels like I paid $50 at release for a barebone version.
Sure, the updates are sort of "free" but still... I could still have my $50 and spent it on another game while waiting for CDP to finish their creative vision or whatever it is that they are after. As it is my game is collecting dust while I'm waiting for the final version. That's not entirely satisfactory.

*typical generic comment stating the delay is to implement DRM*

Am I doing it right?

Nope. You get an F, Sir. Your post was lacking the most basic and very essential content like the mention of "draconian", "ass rape", "fucking", "shitty", "gay" (or "ghey") and more inflammatory material to get your point across. You need to really let it all out because clearly UbiSoft DRM is the most important issue in the world today, dintchaknow?!?

Yep. The helo or APC rides with the mission briefings plus the video transmissions during a battle were always highly enjoyable. I have very little hope though that anything that is currently in development GR-wise is going to offer any of that stuff.

Cheap deals for the customer, patches applied to games for the customer, a social service so you and your friends can play together... the ability to quickly and easily re install your games *and game codes are saved without having to write them down...all of this free. Not so much Stockholm syndrome as what some would call loyalty. Give me some examples please of where the customer is getting ass raped as you so intelligently put it?

Steam sucks because I have to download software that organizes my games into a neat list, shows me all updates and DLC that is available for it with out me having to scour the internet or wait in line on Fileplanet or something? Bunch of haters.

Let's see...

(-) Steamworks games that won't run without Steam (no game should force you to install a certain client that is technically not required to run the game)
(-) Steam DRM - often times on top of other DRM like SecuROM, doubling the annoyance
(-) Wonky offline mode
(-) Buggy and slow as fuck integrated browser
(-) Generally poor performance (it's gotten better over the years but still a far cry from a smooth, flawless user experience)
(-) Spyware features - Steam knows what you play, where you play, when you play, how often you play, with whom you play, what hardware you prefer playing on... you name it. In terms of gaming it knows everything about you
(-) Retarded region locking
(-) Censorship instead of age verification (big negative for Germans and Aussies and others with restrictive gov'ts)
(-) "Our servers are currently too busy to handle your request - Please try again in a few minutes" = Totally unacceptable message if I want to download and install a game I purchased and own. I must be able to play whenever I want to. I don't give a fuck whether they have to set up a server farm the size of Texas. Not being able to play a game is unacceptable.
(-) Mod compatibility not always ensured
(-) Delayed patches (sometimes massively)

If any other major player like EA or Microsoft had a negative list like that people would tar and feather them. But Valve gets aways with it "cuz HL was kewl" Rolleyes .
Steam does have its good sides, no doubt, but wouldn't it be much better if like GOG they would just be a decent digital sales platform without a client requirement and all the other peripheral bullshit? Yes, it would.

I got a chance to check out Ghost Recon Online while at E3. All I can say is stay away from this utter crap of a game. Its nothing but run around and kill each other. No story at all. The Graphics were very bland and dated.

Uhh... not that I disagree, nor would I even consider purchasing this game... but WTF else are you supposed to do in a shooter?

Dude, l34Rn 2 r33d, he said "no story at all" so obviously he wants to at least have a pseudo-purpose for the running around and killing each other part. Besides, since this is Ghost Recon we are talking about here and not Serious Sam, it does seem like a reasonable expectation. The GR games did have pretty decent story-telling mechanics for a shooter series.
