Especially since Starcraft basically shows you how to mow down innocent little kids with an assault rifle.
Never mind that he didn't use the "assault rifle." Don't worry, I caught the sarcasm.

Perhaps they should be looking at the dismal state of the mental healthcare system instead.

720p?

even on next gen hardware, I thought they were going after 1080p res.

Hah no. Consoles holding consoles back, in turn holding back PC gaming.

Tablets won't kill off e-readers until they have the same battery life they do. Right now my kobo takes around 3 weeks before needing a charge, when I'm reading it for around 4-5 hours a day. My mom's vox has to be charged daily, and she's reading it for 5-7 hours, with most of the power hungry features turned off. Plus I find the e-ink much easier on the eyes.

That was in response to Frum's bout of crazy incase you missed it. The bodies weren't even cold and he was trying his very best to score political points.

Aren't all modern processors still compatible with the i386?

Creston
From what I understand, it's the compatibility between 8bit and 16bit registers that screw everything up, especially in the 32bit pipe.

29% of folks are running 1920x1080? =(

I'm still rocking 1280x1024 on my 4:3 and 1360x768 on my widescreen. Sounds like it's time for an upgrade.
The problem is that a lot of monitors these days especially in the 19-22" range, especially the cheap monitors cap out at 1360x768. Blargh, and if you're buying a PC instead of building one that's probably what you're going to get.

Play much better with the lights off, sound up and partially wasted(I prefer booze). Loved both games without a doubt, been awhile since I played something that actually scared me a few times.

No one cares about San Andreas and how would you deal with the timelines. What made Vice City the best GTA was the 80s theme. So unless the entire time period is 70s/80s it'll suck.
Really that's my feeling on all of it. I've played the entire GTA series and at the end I wasn't really impressed. Though I just finished SR3 off of recommendations of some folks here and damn if I didn't enjoy that a lot. That, was a blast.

Now off for some more super-ethical-murder-happy-funtime!

I haven't gotten the Steam survey popup in a while. My system hasn't had any major changes in a couple of years, so that may be why.
Got one two months ago, my machine hadn't had any changes in a few years. Since you're randomly selected good chance you simply weren't chosen.

Though I'm kinda surprised to see Win8 has almost 5% of the market already.

mag wrote on Dec 13, 2012, 15:25:

Win2k's a chunk, I'd bet.
That'd be my guess, there's still some hardcore people who are still hanging on to it. It was a hell of an OS for gaming through once you got it all up and running.

It would suck to be a retailer still holding onto these games in boxed product form.
Really, how many retailers actually sell PC games these days? Not many. Most sell console games, and pretend that the PC market doesn't exist anymore. Never mind that it'll outstrip all consoles by next year.

Did they really change her outfit based on complaints? Lots of 19th century dresses had plunging necklines, even in the button-down Victorian era (hell, even the queen herself wore plunging necklines from time to time).
A neckline is different than cleavage, even back in the early 1900's. A plunging neckline was considered racy at the time, while not was considered traditional and on the conservative side. Though a women having half her tits flapping in the wind, would have had her charged with public indecency. Unless they were working in a red light district.

Wasn't the P3 300 mhz celeron, the chipset that really kicked off overcloking? That is where you could buy it for like $300 and overclock it to run like a $1000 chip. Back when 3dfx and 3d kicked off? To me that was when overclocking really paid off, $ wise and performance, you needed every little bit.
One of them yep. You could get the 233 and 266 cellery upto 400-700mhz with stock aircooling. And they were dirt cheap, in the $89-129 range if I remember right. Pretty sure I have some of the old stock sheets around for them. They weren't expensive by any means.

What really made them fly was when people figured out how to bypass the hardware multiplier lock.

I'd like to see a compatibility list for the huge catalog of PC games released in the past five to ten years. That's my biggest concern with Win8: not being able to play even one of my existing games puts me off.
Everything I've tried so far works, even some of the more esoteric games that refused to run under Win7 work fine under Win8 like Klingon Academy and SFC. Both of which were surprising. Despite people saying games like WC3/TFT wouldn't work, or there was no audio I had no problems with either of those.

Most of the problems I've run across have been from installers that "don't play nice" or try to write keys that no longer exist. Or their installers are simply broken like Jade Empire or ME2--ME2 is good. Let's add the little "TM" symbol and break everything on one the installers and so on.

PS:T, FO/FO2/FoT all work. Other infinity engine games work like BG/BG2 and so on. NWN/NWN2, older RTS games as well.

meh. I always replace cpu and mobo's at the same time when I upgrade. I'm sure I'd be pissed if i were a hobbyist though.
I just did an upgrade on a AM3+ board, going from a x4 965 to a FX-6300, and I just built a new rig for someone who didn't have a lot of cash. So I slapped in a x4 640, and in a few months they'll be getting a FX-8320 or 8350. So these things do happen outside of the hobbyist market.
