DJ focuses on the music production of things (from what it appears) as do I when it comes to soundcards, and unless you are doing movie music you never piss with 5.1 just stereo.

But he's correct in saying that creative makes shit cards (for music/production) - they are good for games and directional sound but not for purity of sound as an audiophile or producer. Most wouldn't tell a difference as a listener anyway so just go with what you like.

On a related note I don't need quality sound for games, my 5:1 game setup is purely for knowing exactly where you are so I can kick your ass the best.

This! Thanks for putting it better then i could Also of note, whenever i need direction sound ques from a game i just plugin my headphones.

I've already fixed this problem with StartIsBack, seamless integration into the OS, doesn't run as a background program or service.

Proper Start menu on Windows 8. $3 bucks and done.
Yeah, that's what I got and love it. Boots to desktop and that's where I stay.

The app boots you right into desktop? How? The login screen is in metro isn't it? Or is it somehow skipping that?

I dont have the app, just 8.1 and i boot straight to desktop as well. As for a login screen, i've never had to 'login' to win8 (that goes for 8.0 and 8.1)

I never understood why gamers buy creative's shit sound cards that cost as much as really good entry level prosumer cards. 6months ago i got a Focusrite 2i2 usb card to go along with my 8" monitors (speakers) and its pretty awesome. Never had any driver issues with anything. Works on Win7/8/OSx etc. Anyways ya, just let creative die already.

What? I don't know what you guys have been smoking.

Star Citizen is made by a large team and a lot of them are veterans of the industry that have released top quality games in the past and know how things work. I don't even know why you dragged SC into this, get a better hobby than being negative about this particular random thing in the world.

This game is made by a handful of young indie devs. I saw the interview with the devs at the VGX yesterday and I wasn't filled with confidence that they had the required experience, money, talent and numbers. The amount of features that we saw in the (very scripted)video would be too much for a lot of AAA studios.

Yet somehow they've shown more then your accomplished dev's. As for harlock, how's being a nazi working out for you on the internet?

I think its rediculous that dev's have forgotten what beta and alpha means. As beta is only suppose to be for FINE TUNING games rather then adding or removing content and major features. You want to see a well run game that understands the meaning of Alpha and Beta, look no further then Prison Architect.

Looks extremely cool, but it's way too big of a project for some indie devs.

As opposed to what Star Citizen dev's that have almost nothing to show for it other then a hanger that a 10 year old kid could write?

They didn't even write it, just some 3D assets tossed into CryEngine.

Meanwhile you have things like this and the progress on Elite Dangerous that shows real promise.

Hense why i said a 10 year old could of written it. And yes there is some code that was envolved regardless if it was a 3rd party engine.

Just look at Limit Theory with its 1 man dev team and part time graphics guy for a successfull procedural indy title. It most certainly can be done if the dev's are skilled enough.

The Walking Dead was a great game. I'm sure season 2 will be as well. But I fear that TT turining everything into an episodic series is going to water everything down. I doubt one writer, or the ones who worked on WD will be working on the others as they are all in developement at the same time. I think some of these will turn out good, and others not so much. TT saw the success of the Walking Dead game, now they are chasing the money. I guess I can't blame them for wanting to get rich(er) and retire.

They repeated that success with The wolf among us.

Eh, Germany and Japan are just about as broke, if not MORE broke, than the US is. And Russia's been broke for decades.

In fact, other than China and India, I think just about everybody is broke.

Japan, yes, Germany not at all. They making out like bandits while southern europe suffers.

I got TWD season 2 for 13 euros during some sale at a European site. That's just a steal.

TWAU is just perfect. I loved episode one to the max. But, as mentioned below, the times between episodes so far is ridiculous. It's so long that I will always replay the earlier episodes before starting the new one, and because of this realization I won't actually buy the game until it's either on a sale or at least 4 episodes are out.

It's the same with TV shows. Once I know I'll like a certain show, I'll wait until the season is finished before I start watching it. Reason? Like games, I watch TV shows for immersion, which is impossible to properly achieve for me by watching 40 minutes a week.

I think waiting has some merit thats not to be overlooked. Waiting for a tv show that comes out every week builds suspense and you really think about what you watched while you go about your life during the week if it was a good series/episode. It only adds to the enjoyment when you watch the next episode. As for Tell tale's two series, i agree that the wait is TOO long, although its forgiven in my mind seeing as how its much more time intensive and harder to come out with a new episode of an interactive adventure then it is a static television episode

Hehe I was just kidding. I'll probably grab it. So far the few people that has it says it is good. Nothing on youtube yet, other than that very old footage in German.

I live in germany yet dont speak a word of german....i'm every germans nightmare lol.

@ MisterBenn i can totally relate to that. Growing up my favorite genre was multiplayer RTS and i prided myself on micromanagement. Now that i'm getting into my 30's i much rather play a cerebral TBS or single player RTS of a slower pace (like SOASE). TBS & RPG's i'm favoring more and more as i age.

So I got that 40-inch LED tv from woot a few days ago, and it was supposed to be delivered today - but this is a first for me, Fed Ex page says "Delivery Exception Local Weather Delay - Delivery not attempted"

wha!? I wonder if the truck broke down cause of the cold, cause it isn't a storm today - but it is damn cold at 1 F. Cause that message didn't come in until 2:07, so the truck had been out almost all day. Weird.

1F? FFS! I'd move if it ever got that cold wherever i was living!
