I love the concepts & ideas of Day Z but after playing ARMA III I just can't handle the graphics of ARMA II. It's not like a minor improvement from ARMA II it's a HUGE improvement. Like going graphically from Battlefield 2 to Battlefield 3...lol. As soon as this gets ported to ARMA III I'm all in.

Graphics aren't the only factor. Using your BF2/3 example, I had far more fun playing BF1942 than I did Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 3.

All that aside, this game has been pushed back so far that it will be trumped by the competition.

And we need 64-bit cpus in phones... why?

Because 64-bit generally performs better?

That CNBC article is actually pretty funny. I'm pretty sure that guys are simply unwilling to go out on dates, especially considering the possible ass rape that the courts hand to guys, relating with and to do on any topic, or part of any relationship--especially kids, and separations.

Erm... what?

Chrome [my browser of choice] is a close second and I've always disliked how bloated FF, IE, Opera, and Safari all look and feel.

For those of us who never really played DK, I welcome a mobile version.

What I find entertaining about the "we hate anything that's not for the PC" crowd on bluesnews, is that it is highly unlikely that the devs who are porting DK to mobile devices are the same devs that would be used to create a sequel for the PC. Not to mention that a port is a much lower-hanging fruit than a sequel and will yield significant profit if done right. Game companies are businesses, you know.

GW2 this, GW2 that. I hate to say this, but the game would fail as a subscription MMO because it isn't worth subscribing to. That is why they have an alternative revenue plan. They don't want EoS to make GW2 money, they want to make it worth subscribing to, and therefore make a lot more money. If that fails, THEN they can go FTP as a backup plan, there is no reason to START as a FTP game.

Correct. And if you play WoW versus GW2 then surely you understand why WoW is a much more robust experience. The combat, the class diversity, the content, ***THE PVP*** is all vastly superior to GW2. I played GW2 and I enjoyed it but as JB just said it would not have survived as a subscription game and they knew that. Yet WoW still thrives to this day. Also, for the record, I haven't played WoW in years but I'm not so obtuse as to not appreciate what they've created.

I believe that ESO has the potential to be a WoW rival. I would really like it to be successful because I enjoy having a fun MMO to play.

Guild wars 2 is living proof you can build a cutting edge MMORPG with no sub, ingame store, and NO P2W model! There is nothing, zilch in the store that gives a competitive edge. Lots of cosmetics, xp boosters, and pets. You can convert money to gold, but you would have to be pretty bad to not beable to afford the baseline excotics at level 80.

In GW2 it isn't expensive to purchase (or use dungeon currencies or karma obtained from events) max armour and swords, it is merely a preference because they all have their own skins. Infact as of now, it is even easier. All currencies are now account wide. This allows you to run dungeons and events on a main character and then purchase armor on an another. Imagine if WoW's dungeon and raid tokens were account bound and could be used on alts.

Meanwhile every 2 weeks, new themes content is added to the game.

Yes, but GW2 isn't nearly as good as a real MMO that's well done such as WoW. ESO could possibly be on WoW's level which means it'll warrant the sub fee.

Oh and those speculating on this going F2P are just idiots.

I'm looking forward to this but I'm going to try my best to skip the first several releases and purchase in either the beta or GA phase. I often grab these games in Alpha and am burned out on them long before they're finished.

Heh, I do the same. I hold up Don't Starve as exhibit A.

Great example. I played Don't Starve and enjoyed it and then lost interest shortly after the first cave patch was released.

Hmmm, for the two OSX gamers that come to Blues - ENJOY!


=-Rigs-=

I game on both platforms, actually. I have a MacBook Pro Retina for business that is great for OSX gaming when traveling. I do use dual-boot with Win8 for when I am plugged in, but when running on battery life the OSX operating system is far more battery efficient.

7680x1440 is still dicey in some games/settings on my triple SLI setup :/ People getting excited for "4k gaming" are in for a rude awakening when they realize how inadequate even the best PC hardware is for the job.

1. Almost nobody here runs triple 2560 x 1440 monitors. That's more than $2000 just for displays.

2. To get the full benefit of a 30" 4K monitor, your face has to be withing 18 inches (45cm) of it. At 3 feet (90cm) a 4K monitor is indistinguishable from 1080p. It's kind of useless actually.

I've recently started upgrading all the monitors in my house to 27" (BenQ has a very nice one on amazon for $220) and have to say that it seems perfect. If I go any bigger I'll need to move my head around too much during gaming to see different parts of the HUD.

Also, I don't see removable vent guards as a requirement for my cases. I have never had an issue with just using the dusting brush attachment that comes with my vacuum cleaner. I've been doing this for 15 years with no issue.

Really guys? 3.5GB, and here your modern PC OS takes under 1.7GB on average with a normal installation.
Since when? Try 10 times that for most modern windows installs.

Go home, Dev. You're drunk.

Seriously, though, I'm guessing you misread the comment that you responded to. My Win8 install is taking 1.8GB right now. If it required 17GB then my computer wouldn't even boot.

I honestly dont understand the hype for American Gods. I found it to be completely underwhelming. The story moved at a snails pace and the main protagonist was completely passive. It was well written, but the above just really had me eager to finish it to be done with it.

It's not your typical action book. It may not have been your thing, but I enjoyed it like many people did.

It is your loss.

No, it really isn't. It's a formulaic retread of a game you already bought and paid for more than a decade ago. It isn't a good story nor is it even a decent continuation of the original storyline.

To be clear, you've never played and enjoyed 2 games of the same genre? You're such a snowflake.

Yea I do not get the mentality of "everything must be unique and ground breaking for it to be any good". It makes no sense and seems to me you'd go through life being pretty miserable with that expectation.


Burrito of Peace has only ever owned 1 skateboard, scooter, motorcycle, car, boat, etc in his life. He refuses to own/use 2 of the same type of transportation because they're formulaic retreads of a mode of transportation that he already bought and paid for more than a decade ago. He just hopes that he can afford Mooney aircraft before his car dies for good...
