I wouldn't go that far. Windows 8 boots slightly faster than Windows 7, almost imperceptibly so on an SSD. That is mainly due to the fact that Windows 8 doesn't actually do a hard reboot in many circumstances. It is not 'more compatible' than Windows 7 and is no more or less stable. Windows 8 is a slight improvement over Windows 7, so slight that many people would never know the difference. If you're building new then sure get Windows 8.1, not like you have a choice anymore. If you have Windows 7 don't bother with Windows 8, wait for 9.

There is just something amusing about supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 but not Windows 8.

You mean going from ~15-30sec to ~6.5-9sec on exactly the same build, the whole difference being the OS is "slight?" It's not more compatible? You mean apps that would refuse to run under 7 even with excessive tinkering, but work fine under 8? It's not more stable, but that's why even under poorer hardware that was crash prone under 7, the same doesn't happen with 8? Sadly, most people who "don't know the difference" are the same people who "don't know how to look at things under the hood."

Spies come from all stripes, from inside government agencies to people on the street. So, it will work against some...just not all. And anything you can do to increase the SNR, and slow down the "other guys" security apparatus is perfectly fine.

You should just upgrade to Windows 7 instead.
Yeah, don't worry there bro. 8 and 8.1 are leagues ahead of 7 in terms of compatibility, stability and boot time. The only downside to it was metro, which is easily fixed.

saluk wrote on Aug 16, 2014, 16:10:
I haven't upgraded because the 2 times I have tried have left my system unbootable. 8.1 was rushed. I've never had as much trouble or gone through as many hoops trying to upgrade as I have with 8.1 - and that includes upgrading vista to windows 7 and upgrading windows 7 to 8 (on another machine).

So the "silliness" as you say isn't just partly on microsoft's fault. I lay all the blame there.
If you're getting an unbootable system under 8.1 then the problem is almost certainly on your end. And it will almost be laid right in the lap of a driver misbehaving. $20 says if you grab the straight 8.1 iso, and do a clean install it'll be just fine, and if that's the case then just migrate everything from 8 to 8.1 with the migration tool and go on your way.

Anyway, these drivers are actually much better than the previous RC's that were put out. Only downside is they have serious problems with flash+firefox and hardware acceleration on my rig, w/7950. Turning hardware acceleration off and everything is good. Otherwise I'm seeing bloody BSOD's with them.

edit: some type of clarity, pain killer induced writing is a pain.

It does look too good to be true, what's the budget for this game anyway?
Depends on the site you're looking at, but anywhere between 20-40m. The Witcher 2 was around ~10-15m if I remember right, USD of course. Though there's a blurb on CB that Witcher3 has only cost ~7m in expenses so far.

Well 30 minutes played, enjoy it so far. It'll be nicer when some of the other stuff is fleshed out though.

FF has been the only series that nearly tempted me into buying a console, I haven't disliked any of the series except XIII where everything seemed to be in a corridor, though I only got about half-way through it since I was using my sisters machine when I was out in Alberta. Though she loved it, as much as she loved the revamped III and re-releases of VII and VIII. She hadn't played either of those since their original release on the PC.

I know you're cynical man, but has CDP ever done us wrong on their games? Faith, it's not needed in this case.

The Downwarren trailer was released as well. A HD copy can be downloaded here: http://bit.ly/1pNPhVR

Too bad they half-assed this game or it could have been really good.
It's still good, I think I've got 25-30 hours into it. It's not brilliant by any stretch but it's "good enough" a solid 6-7(I'm of course using the old realistic rankings, not IGN "we got monies" 9/10's).

Sounds like ass, concept looks like ass, gameplay at this stage looks like ass(wee click fest). I get the feeling that this has been heavily influenced by the dumbnuts that did KoTOR.

Really? I'm 250+ and didn't really think I had played THAT much. I only started 3 weeks prior to the expansion and haven't been in the game a month now... The first 100 really aren't much of a big deal.
I played myself out pretty hard when the RMAH was up across two accounts, so after that I didn't really want to play all that much. I just started a new game with a full quest reset though, so who knows maybe I'll start playing more. But I need to finish my skyrim run first, only 200 hours in on this playthrough so I figure another 250 and I'll finish.

But will the game punish you with death for exploring the environment and then mock you?
Nope, because a lot of the "kids" today would throw a hissy fit.

Same, I'm at 65 and I think I picked up 40-45 of those levels during the xp boost before the expansion launched.

Hi-end PC experience? I think they mean mid-range 2010 since that's all it took to get "high quality graphics" from 4 years ago.

Mistakes as bad as ME3 are on everyone. Nice to have a scapegoat I guess.
Correction: Mistakes are only on everyone, when everyone agrees to it. When the lead designer says: "this is good, we'll go with it." The mistake is clearly on them, and only them. That's the whole point behind a lead designer, to sort out the crap and make the best choices, not the expedient ones.

Probably. Then again I never did hear that there were on-going investigations into that. There was a burp and then it just faded away...

I'm pretty sure it will also include liberal use of the "awesome button."

I'm looking forward to seeing a 40-man Rag again. It'll remind me why I hated it so much. The Tarren Mill vs. Southshore sounds like a lot of fun though. Too bad it's only temporary. Was hoping they'd make it in to a BG like that one in Wrath. Wintergrasp?

I can already see chat flooded with "loot the fuckin' dogs!" and "stand on the surger." I enjoyed TM vs SS quite a bit, I wish they'd bring back classic AV instead of the rush fest that it is now.

Does anyone ever part with IP? I'm being pretty lazy here and doing no research but I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's a rare white elk moment for any company to sell or let go of a franchise.
Sure, you just need to show up with a large pile of cash and watch the magic happen.
