News Comments > More Arkham Knight Issues; GMG on Possible Refunds

I dont own the game, however someone correct me if i'm wrong but if my memory is right then there was actually very little differences between DX10 and DX11. Infact most DX10 cards had 95% of what it took to run a game in DX11. So that said this just seems really weird and not at all above board with that assertion.

PoE/D2 you can play for years on end and never get bored.
False, bored to death with both of them also.

PoE is the same story as D3, new patch additions lure you in, level up a toon just to ditch him upon reaching high end because it's the same all over again.

And D2... what's the point of doing Baal or Mephisto runs for hours? Rly?

Except that PoE at least gives you a million different ways to build a character. So many very different skills and combinations, as well as Vaal skills and much better crafting system. With upcoming 2.0 release, we also get jewels, divination cards, more new skills, new monsters, and new play mechanics each season, on top of an entire new act for the game. I sometimes get bored with a character, but I keep coming back to try something new.

This has also been my experience, the sheer depth of PoE puts it in a class of its own among ARPG's with only D2 able to match up (and D2 its more then 10 years old)

My last AMD/ATI card was a 9800pro. That came out in 2003, my reasoning was that the drivers for the last few AMD cards i owned were just going to shit (had a 9700 before that). It just seems like a business as usual type of thing for AMD/ATI. Nvidia is far from perfect, but they do put considerably more effort in there drivers.
"

yeah bullshit.

9800 was the very next card after the 9700 so what is this "last few amd cards" bullshit?

That was also during the time AMD was wiping the floor with nvidia in the driver and performance department. Nvidia was cheating in every benchmark just to try and keep up. AMD had a public driver beta tester program going during that and the next 2 generations of products. In fact their main driver guy was hired FROM Nvidia.

Seriously.. you guys are like brain washed nvidia drones. posting the same irrational crap in every thread.

Nvidia cheats and does underhanded shit. Those are the facts. Just like what is going on with this game. Do you really think it takes a 3gb AMD card to keep up with a 2GB Nvidia card?

Use your brains people, this is all underhanded marketing bullshit spearheaded by Nvidia.

The only one spouting bullshit is you. I said the 9800pro not the 9800, there is a difference. Maybe you were too young to remember? Maybe you didnt remember just how fun Catalyst drivers were with windows xp at the time regardless of ATI's performance edge against nvidia at the time. Maybe you remember the reason why they started that beta program for their drivers...maybe not.

Unlike you against nvidia, i have nothing against ATI. I would gladly jump ship if see a good reason to. I've always gone with the better overall value, regardless if it was AMD/Intel or ATI/Nvidia.

That free Windows 10 promise to pirated versions of Windows was questionable the begin with anyways.
With that said all pirated versions say "Genuine" anyways so I am pretty sure it will be easy enough to trick the authentication process to get 10 for free.
It's Microsoft's best interest to have everyone and their dog onto 10.

I actually upgraded a Pirated Win7Ultimate to a 8 for i think 15$ at the time? Now it looks like that 15$ is going further then i thought it would. If its anything like how they did the upgrade from 7 to 8, it shouldnt be too hard to get the legit version if your savvy enough.
I think it was $35 for the first year to get Win8.
Either way I don't know why Microsoft cares for Genuine versions when they are giving the OS away for free anyways.
Just give it away for everyone and eliminate the piracy.
They obviously aren't making their money on the OS sales

Here's the link It was for upgrades if you bought a laptop or computer with win7 within like the last 3months right before release.

I was tempted, but only thing i really wanted was GTA5, but i'm waiting for the next generation of nvidia cards before i grab it on discount then. I'll parrot what everyone else said, basically too big a back log and nothing really enticing, especially with the knowledge of so many games i want from E3 coming in the near future.

Star Ruler 2 rocks. It is a very underrated game that didn't get enough press.

Maybe thats because there's Star Ruler 1 which is still without half of the promised features... Let me guess they promise all those missing ones in Star Ruler 2 but they arent quite finished right? ...

BW cap in Germany for a 100mbit cable connection is 1.8TB per month. But 60GB cap a day, and when you reach it they throttle "filesharing" to 100kb/s (yeah, you reading that right) and no, I didn't put that "" in out of boredom. You know what they throttle? Everything. EVERYTHING. Yes, contra their own contract text! So youtube, throttled, Steam? Throttled. Downloading GTA 5 and patch? Fuck you, you are throttled. (Happened my friend) and afterwards he couldn't even use youtube anymore.

Needless to say, I'd rather take 6mbit DSL with no cap than that offer ;p Especially because TONS of auto updaters are lately p2p

If I were to ever blog about political things, I'd only do it via VPN and under a false identity. And in my country bloggers are not "hacked apart".. but it just seems prudent to not intermingle political opinion and my personal identity.

I live in Baden-Wurrtenberg and I'm on Kabel-bw, My Usenet stats for the last 3 months are 7.3tb's... thats just my usenet usage, I'm on 150/5 plan and i've never ever been throttled... I'm curious who you get your internet from?

Only Kabel Deutschland here for 100mbit, part of Vodafone. 60GB daily limit (currently), throttling to 100kb/s if you go above it. I live in Brandenburg, a short way east of Berlin.

I have 1&1 DSL 6mbit, no throttling and no cap Where I live, that's literally the only 2 options. DSL, max 16mbit down 1mbit up or Kabel, max 100mbit down 6mbit up from Kabel Deutschland (with cap and throttling)

And yeah, if you get to 60gb a day, the Kabel Deutschland guys do throttle everything

They also throttle you flat-out if you have 10gb daily p2p traffic, and yes, throttling everything. Not just p2p.

Imo the worst provider in Germany, Kabel Deutschland that is.

Ps.: My friend just chimed in and said that they throttle you when you reach 60gb ANY day of the month, and all days until the end of the month afterwards at 10gb per day. Meaning once you reach 60gb, you are throttled until end of day, but next day if you reach 10gb, you are throttled again. And again, and again...

Also, yes, they do count Steam, Youtube, Amazon Prime as "p2p traffic" so a single large game download could actually become literally physically impossible for you for a WHOLE MONTH.

My monthly traffic is around 300gb, so I'd hit this literally every month and every day of every month. So be very happy you have Unitymedia at your place and not Kabel Deutschland.

PPs.: Last month, due to GTA 5 i was at 300gb, normally it's 200gb. But then I also share with other people in my household, so it's not just me downloading 24/7 HD porn ;p

Damn that sucks, sorry to hear that. Makes me feel pretty lucky indeed. Although you may of just chained me for life to the BW area while i'm in Germany now lol

Definitely one of my favorite games, but i've decided to give it a break until beta is over and Act4 is released. I want everything to be fresh for my first Act4 play through. Also i was a little let down by the supporter packs this go around. Was planning on buying one but i think i'll just save my money and wait.

If you loved Diablo2 and hated Diablo3, this is probably the game for you...

how can you all watch the same video I just did, and only walk away with: "well, this is dumb, i'm not gonna buy 4x titans to run this? This is stupid, who cares?"
Because why show tech that's not even close to being realized on current high end gamer setups?
Him saying this scene has 10 times the polygon counts doesn't make me me say "Wow!"

It's like showing Avatar graphics and being like: "look how awesome this is!"
And we're all like: "uh huh, but it will run at 3 fps on my PC so who cares"

To show whats possible. Pretty ridiculous most of you cant appreciate that simple fact.

Looks good, but having not played it i just hope that it conveys the huge disconnect between the Generals and the actual situation that was so evident in WW1. Literally took years of Generals throwing troops at each others meat grinders before they learned a modicum of 20th century warfare. Of all modern day wars, this is the one i would least like to be in. I hope that it conveys this appropriately. That said, we need more games that cover the great war.

It WAS buggy, been playing it for about a year now, it was a heck of a buggy version back then, release was still RATHER buggy, but they patched it sometimes several times a day since then. By now it runs perfectly smooth, has no issues with performance, ... in general, I'm having a blast, haven't come across a bug in weeks, and I'm at over 200 hours.

It really feels like old school Dungeon Keeper, so definitely look into it!

Cool, thanks for that. I think i will give it a try.

To be honest if you want a Dungeon Keeper alike... get War For The Overworld, also on steam, that's Dungeon Keeper 3 as much as it can only be.

Dungeons 1 was a huge letdown, with the target of "entertaining" the knights in your dungeon, and placing things so they would be drawing their attention and giving them a good time instead of being a Dungeon Keeper... which is what people expected.

Haven't played Dungeons 2 yet though.

Thanks for the tip about War for the Overworld....was reading some user reviews, people say its pretty buggy, whats your experience in regard to this?
