Not a headset solution per se but this is a good mic.

You can attach it to a lot of headphones since headsets are usually rubbish.

I have a 5.1 surround sound setup that I use for gaming(nice thing about not having to worry about anyone else in your house), so it needs to be headsetish in that sense. Something to keep in mind though if I can't find anything else worthwhile.

Are you kidding? It downloaded super fast for me. I got it in just over two hours. It did slow down to like 300kbps at one point, but it was a server issue I think. Once I restarted the downloader, it gave me a better connection and sped right up to ~10mbytes/s again.

I downloaded it last week, and I didn't have any download speed problems. My connection tops out at ~4MB/s and it used all of that to download it was still ~8 hours before it was done. I'd hazard a guess that in some cases it tries to find the closest repository to download from, which may or may not be accurate depending on how they determine that.

Argh, too bad I'm in Europe. I bet we'll be on different servers. Will I still be able to join the crew ingame anyway, I wonder? My aim is awesome, but I suck at driving so I'll be riding shotgun. "Shotgun!" There.

I joined the crew. "Vince-Quinn".

Guess we'll have to wait and see, I'll also have to spring for a new headset since my sister took mine when she moved out west. If anyone has recommendations on something I'm all ears.

Funny, I'm old and have played all Witchers and most Elder Scrolls. I say it looks a lot like Skyrim. Fanstasy, check. Open World, check.

That's like saying oranges are like potatoes. They both grow, you can eat both.

Cutter wrote on Apr 11, 2015, 03:19:
I've seen that now and then with almost all my ATI cards and I've always assumed it was just a driver issue. Something at the hardware abstraction layer. With my new rig I have a kickass power-supply and I know it's not that, and my DRAM is all good too. And given that I've seen it over a few cards over the years only reinforces the suspicion that it's software related.

The biggest problem I've had on ATI cards is the 'flicker' when the driver resets due to a timeout. It's similar to the TDR on nvidia cards. Having a kickass PSU doesn't mean that it can't have problems though. There's always some weird shit the can cause problems though so it always comes down to trial and error.

Cutter wrote on Apr 11, 2015, 03:15:

Apparently ASUS doesn't do that, which is what the guy at Canada Computers said in the first place but the Sapphire was cheaper and now I know why. They used to be a good company. Apparently they only shit the bed in the last few years with some new CEO taking them down the wrong path with this sort of nonsense.

Unless ASUS has changed it in the last year, all of their RMA's are referbs/factory repaired. The last two mobos I got back from them for a repair were also marked referb/repair, that was about 13 months ago.

You may be on to something with the voltage considering the same thing was happening with my 5870 before the 7970. Just weird that it's not more often if that's the case.

Well if you've got a bad rectifier, or failing caps, it will only show up sometimes. If you've got a spare PSU pop the current one out and see if it goes away.

I've checked the temperatures, they seem in to be well within normal ranges. It seems to be pretty random, sometimes it's right away other times it won't happen at all. It's definitely corruption on specific memory location because the artifacts will only occur on specific geometry in the game. If I look away from that spot everything is fine. This is really noticeable when playing City Skylines. Some random intersection or building will start doing this and will give me a little light show even when rotating the camera as long as it's on the screen... but if I pan away from that the rest of the city is fine. Never happens in CS:GO or other games but then I'll play another FPS and there it again, blasting off of some random point in the map or maybe a piece of the HUD. I get it in Civ 5 occasionally too.

Check the line voltages on the PCIE connectors to the card, chances are you've got a bad 12v rail in there somewhere. Or you've got dram that's going for a shit.

Me too. Got the Sapphire though it already died and they replaced it - with a refurbished one. Assholes. I won't be buying from Sapphire ever again.
Pretty much every company does that including EVGA. I had my 560Ti die on me about 6mo after I bought it, it was replaced with a referb.

Just out of curiosity, what are the cards some of you guys are running (or going to run)?

GTX 970 here. Xmas buy. No regrets
7950 w/3GB on it, picked it up early last year on sale. So far it hasn't let me down on anything.

No you both all three are misinterpreting. I don't give a shit about speedruns. I'm talking about the 200 hours if you do everything. I'm on my first playthrough of Skyrim with like 400 hours. I haven't even picked sides yet.

a full playthrough of the RPG sequel will take 200+ hours if you chose to accept all the game's side-quests and extra activities

No, I'm taking your statement on face value. It's however not my problem that your statement is not being conveyed clearly, it's yours. If three people are saying the same thing, the miscommunication error is on your end.

So, basically they're saying it's a lot smaller than Skyrim.
Wat? You can complete the main story of Skyrim in ~4 hours without using any bugs/cheats/etc. How is that smaller than skyrim, when they're saying that this is the main story of witcher 3 minus dialog.

If you don't want the game to cost 100$ you shouldn't ask for USB delivery
Considering they could buy the USB keys in bulk, I doubt that would happen. At most it might be a $5-15 price increase for those who would want it on that. Since you can buy single 64GB USB keys for $33, and in bulk units of 5k+ it's $18 and 10k+ units it's $11.50. I don't see one listed for 20k+ units, but I'd guess they're in about the $8/unit range.

Yeah, strange that one. But that might be simply a poorly optimized installer. It's probably doing an integrity check on the fly.

That does appear to be what it's doing. Last night I was wondering why there was occasionally so much disk thrashing, so I decided to watch it for a bit via perfmon. It would max out one core, as it utilized between 80-100% of all bandwidth on the install drive.

Using Rockstar's social club client to download the pre-load varies in speed from an abysmal 100kb/s to topping off at around 3.5 mb/s.

I never had it download under 4MB/s on my end, but it seemed to be pulling from a repository in Toronto and I'm a stones throw away from that(under 150km).

That's what I call a letter and throttling from your ISP waiting to happen.
What's funny is a lot of ISP's here in Canada have caps of 60-100GB/mo. That means downloading it you'd blow through most of your cap in one day, I can't wait to see what happens to all the rogers, bell, telus, cogeco customers when that happens.

Yeah cuase we all have bluray roms.

I don't, but if I needed one I could head to my local computer shop and pick one up for $50-70 Canadian. That puts them about par with CD/DVD burner combo's for several years after they were very common in everything. They're by far not expensive anymore.

jdreyer wrote on Apr 8, 2015, 02:41:
Yeah, whereas most companies plan DLC, I also found this marketing announcement oddly timed. Perhaps they thought if people knew more development was forthcoming it would convince them to buy it?

That's most likely the case, plus some people want to know that there's a continuation of development regardless of when a game has gone gold. I was quite happy to know that in pillars of eternity's case, as I'm just as happy to know that Witcher 3 will have at least two expansions.

For what?

I've had GTA 5 in my GMG games for 2-3 months. With a Vice City Key listed. It was a pre-order bonus... how did you think they gave you the key?

My post was made the day BEFORE the gta 5 keys were out. NOW there is a second, GTA 5 key which was emailed today. It is ABOVE the vice city code under GTA V.

There has been a key listed for GTA V since DAY 1 if you pre ordered and got Vice City.
For pointing out that you were wrong. I should have probably taken a screenshot last night at 2am when the keys showed up in peoples accounts, but you can jump over to the playfire forums and see that a number of people not only myself received their keys *before* the emails went out.

Your post was made on the same day that the keys went out. In my case I now have two GTA:SA keys in my account. My GTA:SA key starts with PDRD my GTAV key starts with PEEF.

Michael McCann did a phenomenal job on the HR soundtrack and I'm crossing my fingers he'll be back. In the meantime, he is going to be posting the music from The Fall and Missing Link on his site sometime within the next month, so there's that at least. I highly recommend his Splinter Cell: Double Agent soundtrack if you haven't given it a listen yet.

Double nice. I'll have to give it a listen later.

I'll wait for the Extended/Director's Cut/Whatever The Fuck Else They Decide To Call It to go on sale for $15. How would we already have two expansions, complete with play times, if they weren't planned and cut from the full title? I'm sick of this shitty trend. A lot of the stuff I've been seeing of this game makes me less than confident it will be a quality PC release anyway. Too busy playing GTA 5 at the moment to listen. XD

The same way that back in ye olde days they could already have expansions planned out for games. Remember BG? BG2? NWN? Yeah all those games had expansions already planned out in advance and it wasn't cut content. You finish Pillars of Eternity yet? There's no cut content, and there's an expansion planned already. How about Shadowrun?
