It's not like other MMOs where you gotta grind to the top tier of gear before you can even play.
That's quite true, and for nublets there's no shortage of starter corps that they can join as well which will help them out. I haven't played in..jeeze almost a year now, but I might start sometime in the next few months if we hit another gaming dryspell.

SC2 feels like it's taking place in an alternate universe to SC1 and that's a bad thing.
Apparently we're playing different games. Then again, considering that the story from WOL fits the lore I can see how that would be a problem for some people.

I love that everyone HATED the level-scaling in oblivion, so Bethesda changed it for FO3 and Skyrim, and modders are putting the level scaling right back in. As a developer, you just can't win.

Creston
Haha. Spot on. Between the mods, and DD even a level 55+ character can get ground wiped in a couple of seconds. My battlemage(600mana/450ish health) with 102% fire/frost or shock and 44% magic res, and 2pts in magic resistance from the alteration tree has still be 1-shot by enemies with magic damage, and with nearly 1k armor(minus shield) I've still been crit for 80% of my health in one go in melee/ranged damage.

There are probably mods for that.
There are mods for it. High level enemies for one. Vanilla Skyrim Dawnguard Use both if you have both. He hasn't released one yet for Dragonborn though. Or Enhanced Higher level gameplay and for Dawnguard Also get deadly dragons, and things aren't so easy anymore.

I've used both High level enemies and Enhanced Higher level gameplay I like both. In terms of what they do they're both excellent, so try either or in different playthroughs and see which one you like.

It was never true, but it sure sounded good to people who didn't know any better.

Eh, it's gambling. It's always a risk. Some times you win, some times you lose. Getting Bioshock for preordering the third game in the franchise is a bit surely most people have it due to sales etc.
Not any screwier than say getting a copy of a game that you've already got through sales for example. Then again, it's easier to give away a copy of the game and have people gift a copy if they have one already and hook them to the game more than anything else.

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.

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.

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.

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.
