Except that this would have been written by people in PR/Corporate Communications, not marketers.
There's really that much of a difference? PR and Corperate comm, and marketers are all the same in my book. Soulless that all come out the same factory.

Side note: Who is that fucking stupid, honestly. Shit "perks".
Really? Xcom did the same thing and it was a kick ass game.

Death is also a transition.

DEATH IS YOUR FRIEND
Funny, that I was just playing skyrim and one of the NPC's I was hunting down was repeatedly screaming: DEATH IS HIGHLY OVERRATED!!! I wonder if he works for EA.

So you remember people saying SLI has come along way the year it came out?
Yep, because if you remember 3dfx had been pumping tech demo's for nearly a year by that time.

They make games for their consumers! They make games that people who buy their games will enjoy. Making a change that makes you happy will make them unhappy.
Well you missed about half my sarcasm, but that's okay it doesn't always translate well. Here's the thing, console gaming has degenerated nearly the point of "it's not a game, it's an interactive movie" and in 15 years, I expect to see someone has gotten the brainchild idea to turn it into a choose-your-own adventure machine. Where it gives you a list of options and you're simply along for the ride.

Why not use hushmail for that? Auto deletes itself (the account, after 30 days without login) if you don't need it too. 100% anon
This is why.

and even just 1 person on a server using a mouse against everyone else using a pad will ruin the fun for everyone.
Wait, so because everyone is dumbed down to the point where they need the game to autoaim for them, no one should get their feelings hurt when PC master race comes along with a mouse and wtfpwns them using fine control. Gotcha.

...
EDIT: Sorry, I should say that if you're getting a driver crash, it could be because of one of these many causes...

Forum link

Why it's common with FC3 though...
To be honest, there is one commonality in it all. Back around 276(might have been a bit earlier or later) or so, Nvidia introduced way to deal with power consumption for core voltage and TDR's jumped through the roof, even on cards that were stable. It was one of their ways to deal with the never ending problems of power consumption+heat. The problem is some cards didn't like it, not a single bit. It actually got bad enough at one point that nvidia was willing to have any rig+card shipped to them from anywhere in the US so they could test it in their labs.

One of the solutions found was locking the voltage outside of the drivers fixed it. It's been an ongoing issue, and one that I had problems with myself. Changing drivers to a previously known stable version fixed it in all cases, an that was back on my old 460 and 560. Two cards, in two different rigs, using nearly identical build components.

SLI has come a LONG long way in the past few years. I realized a 80+% gain by adding a second video card (dual sli gtx 480 here)
I remember people saying the same thing back in '98.

Generally folks, anytime there's a new driver released I pop over to the EVGA forums and check the 500/600 sections to see what the guys are saying in terms of quality. There isn't much being said right now, but some of the posts in the range of "not impressed, rushed, and POS." If that helps anyone out.

So, after watching that for a bit last night...was there actually a hardware mechanism that hit the side of the cabinet when you died? I've only noticed that sound on QBert standups, but it's sometimes LOUD.

There was a physical mechanism on the standups that were at the old arcade that I used to go to as a kid back in the 80's. I really do miss arcades sometimes.

Haha yeah that was my thought. It's kinda like bears, people think bears, raccoons, and weasels aren't either. Well until they're either in your garbage or chasing you down the street.
