W3 being "open world" doesn't imply doing sidequests in any order you wish IMO... and I prefer some direction anyway. "sandbox games" are a subset of "open world" games that allow you to freely roam and do whatever you want without structure (i.e. skyrim). W3 is simply not a sandbox.

I think that's preferable to me. Most sandbox games are really bland & repetitive when you branch outside of the structured portions of the story. Even RDR got old once you started seeing the same random events.

Anyway...agreed. I never understood why they didn't do a Friday release. Most people are off for the weekend so what better time to start a new game than a Friday night when most people are relaxing. But that would make sense.

Little to no staff will be around to do support/patch related stuff on a weekend and many retailers schedule marketing stuff around flyers which need lead time. Weekend releases as a gamer are great but from a business perspective are more difficult.

The gamespot review is positively gushing, glad I got this as a videocard freebie now Shame it was a review of the PS4 version, I'm anxious to see how the PC holds up.

Everyone got their wish with the Patriots punishment, 4 games, some draft picks and a million bucks is way harsher than I expected.

Save the time, its not very good. Rudimentary space travel flick with a low budget, poor characterization and a shitty filming style.

I like the CD Projekt guys, they have great ideals for gaming in general...but they release buggy as fuck games. Witcher 1 and 2 took months to fix. I will wait and see on this.

Witcher 1 was more problematic than Witcher 2 in my experience, although the latter had some severe crash bugs and was very poorly optimized at release. They got it fixed up pretty quick. I just don't preorder games anymore because its inherently one sided and often a raw deal but I got this as a pack in with my second 970 so *shrug*

Yeah thats how I felt about FO3 vs NV. FO3 had great exploration, lots of cool little touches and stuff to find. NV had better writing and quests, some of them very complex.

It was a pretty good stealth game but it definitely overstays its welcome. I don't think many gamers really want a stealth game set in the Alien universe either, they want the chest pounding colonial marine type stuff.

Saying something is a fact and demonstrating are two different things but I'll let JD dispute what he wants to, I'm not really interested in the particulars. I was just pointing out that an opinion and a fact are two different things. The former can contain the latter but arguing on a factual basis is problematic without demonstration.

And since this is off page one I'm done checking anyway

"In my world, broadband is incredibly competitive," Marcus said.

Is this true for any blues readers? I always find this kind of remark baffling. Granted, I've only lived in Texas, but here, there is never more than 1 single broadband provider for a particular address. Sometimes there are 0. The sole exception is the newly launched but quite limited Google Gigabit in parts of Austin.

It depends on the markets, in the cities you can have 1-3 big companies and a few resellers/independents. In rural areas its basically like one company if you're lucky. Government subsidies were supposed to go into broadband development/infrastructure but instead went to building cellphone networks.

Facts don't need links, backup, or otherwise.

It's not a fact if it can't be demonstrated or verified.

Witcher 3 release window is good, I'm almost wrapped up with Bloodborne and GTA Online is pissing me off with its various loads and wonkiness so I think I'll just hop into that.

It's really just going to bring their efficiency in line with current Nvidia offerings. I'm happy AMD is around to keep Nvidia honest but I feel like their APUs are the only area they're really excelling at this point.

I was talking about the mid range which is the core of the market. But considering we have no idea what the performance hierarchy will shake out like and that AMD is famous for months long paper launches I'm not too excited for the 390 until there is something to go on. HBM seems promising but we just don't know enough about the actual specs of the card yet.
