Still not enjoying this, the gunplay just doesn't feel right. Not sure if that's a consequence of the netcode or just the handling, its hard to put my finger on it. Oh well, back to other games. Gonna be an uphill battle with this one based on word of mouth, EA better go full court press with the marketing.

Forgive me for failing to read the article but there IS NO ISSUE with memory on the GTX 970. It has memory in two different locations with most of it in the first and the second only activates when it is necessary.

NVidia explained everything days ago.

Their reasoning was that most of the cards work will land in the "fast" segment. The problem with that is you can't access the fast segment and the slow segment during the same memory-fetch cycle. That means if any thread within a ROP block needs to touch the slow segment, it needs its own memory-read cycle. So in that case, you go from being able to access (7+7) chunks of memory during 2 cycles to (7+1) cycles. And that's assuming you need a full ROP block access cycle's worth of slow memory - if you only want 1 value from slow memory you could potentially be getting (7+0.00001). In the worst-case access pattern it's a 50% drop in performance.

Basically it's really a 3.5GB card, if you need that last 512MB you better hope the heuristics work for you.

Is the 970 still an amazing card? Absolutely and for most people this will not affect them one way or another for at least 2 years. That being said, when you buy the second to top card you expect a bit of future proofing and this card was falsely advertised. That's almost certainly a marketing problem but people have every right to be upset and if they want a refund then I think they have a good case for it.

I've been waiting for some company to want performance revenue (or whatever you want to call it) from Youtube Let's Plays.

It's kind of a sad state of gaming when watching somebody play the game is more entertaining than actually playing the game for a lot of titles.


I don't know, I'm terrible at fighting games but I enjoy watching other people play them, sort of like certain sports I guess. There are definitely some people where you watch more for the players personality or humor factor too.

Anyways I think Nintendo is being pants on head retarded here, just another example of clueless corporate culture that pervades a lot of those Japanese companies.

I have low expectations that Blizzard will finally make a Warcraft 4 RTS.

I really hope they do but yeah, everything these days needs to have some crazy backend revenue model. I think they could still make a go of it with selling silly Thrall skins or whatever.

Why do people keep giving david cage money? All his games are mostly story where the story is terrible.

You can't quite play anything else like them. Heavy Rain was an interesting game for example and some aspects of the story really resonated with me. They're not great games or great stories but they are interesting.

Who is still playing Diablo III anyway LOL

Lots are still playing the game. Those with short attention spans, or are of the whiny entitled gamer generation, aren't.

His comment was retarded but hes some troll who has escaped ban because <whatever>, no reason to sink to his level.

Too many other games do PvP well already, including other Blizzard ones. You can get that sort of ARPG PvP feel from HOTS, DotA, POE, etc etc. I can't say I care about this anymore.

Well, I don't I play games as form of escapism, not to socialize.

There is an obvious retort I'm going to resist making here

To each his own, its a great market where we all get the choices we want.

Caveat Emptor on these key sites people.

Heh. You realize if it's actually portrayed in a mature manner, people like Sarkesian would have no problem with it, right?

It's not the content, it's the tone and portrayal, and idiots (like yourself), that are too mentally handicapped to understand the difference.

That seems pretty naive to me. Her income literally depends on her having a problem with things.

There are few realistic portrayals of sex in the media anyway. That goes for movies and television doubly. People don't want realistic, they get that already. They want the fantasy.

Two things. First, I think his sentence is lighter than a regular person would have received.

I don't. I've seen similar results for first time offenders, suspended sentences are quite common. People keep trying to use other examples from other cases rather than judging this one by context.

Second, this is hardly the only case where a cop has been shielded by the system.

I don't think he was shielded by the system. If you want to talk about the past this sort of thing would've been swept under the rug and that would've been real injustice. I'm quite happy with the results. The officer didn't get a suspension or something silly, he lost his job. He didn't try to fight it and that's likely the reason he didn't get jail time, just like many people who take suspended sentences in plea arrangements.
