I see a mention of the next consoles having 8g of memory, but isn't that 'shared' memory? IE memory used as both system RAM and video card memory. That isn't remotely the same thing as 8g of dedicated vram.

no but it is all DDR5 much better than the dance dance revolution 3 we all have for our system memory, and there is no bottleneck of having the gpu ask through several layers of control for more memory, it just gets it. Considering how little use power house cpu's get in modern gaming anyway, the weakish cpu's in the new consoles should be adequate. It's how they're implementing their draconian control and spyware schemes that people should be worried about, not the hardware specs.

On topic, this 770 should be on par with the 7970 GE if it's slightly faster than a 680, AMD doesn't really need to put out any $650-1000 cards to compete with nvidia in the 780 or titan segment, cause it's such a niche market it's not even worth showing up to the event, nobody is making much profit or getting much value from the whole ordeal.

hey if you don't mind feeding a company that rips people off continually then i guess you're just a great person that nobody should point out and laugh at. You're ego should be kept high amongst the clouds where nobody can touch it, because you paid good money for these shitty products and how dare anyone mock you for parting with your money like a noob. It's not just about pricepoint, it's about quality, where bose and alienware compete with nobody, because nobody puts as cheap components inside boxes you'll never see, and charges full price for them. Who makes the PSU, and MOBO for the alienware box? is it a normal spec thats easily replaced unlike most dell products? I won't even venture to the innards of any bose hardware.

still the fact remains you could build a much stronger ITX gaming computer that probably cools much better, for much much less, of course with the x51 you can be a total noob, and stay one, but have a computer, i guess there's that.

Nice attitude.

I got a decent deal through my company. So I got a nice 27" IPS screen, a maxed out Alienware X51 with SSD drive, Bose companion speakers, for a little over a grand. All of that combined for a little over a grand... hard to beat that price. I could probably have saved a little building on my own but why bother.

I don't use it on my TV often, it's my main rig and only takes up a little space on my desk.

That's cool. But for general discussion I would think using retail prices off their web-site is fair game. A great deal obviously could alter any decision.

My bit was more towards the "of course with the x51 you can be a total noob, and stay one, but have a computer, i guess there's that."

Bad manners. Especially since some people are tired of making their own rigs.

-

Sorry you feel that way, but it sounds like a personal problem, alienware and bose are for noob consumers. If you knew better by researching with the least amount of effort you'd find better, for less. The key being effort involved, and if you can't spare the effort I can't spare the labels, lack of effort on the part of the consumer makes the entire market, and product environment worse for all involved.

I'll part you with a sturdy acronym to remember: BOSE =

Buy Other Sound Equipment.

the gameplay is fun in WoT until you hit the grind wall, and either decide your time isn't worth anything and you play for free or your money is worth more than the bonuses in the game, and you stop playing. WoWp is junk, Warthunder is by far the better game for air combat, and a better game all around.

I still pop in rarely for a WoT game though, gotta do something with a garage of T10's, and 9's, it's just not worth investing anything into the game any longer, the fun to $$ ratio is way out of whack, and they just seem to keep making things worse. I'm sure their russian player base will keep them going for a long time though considering they have something like 200k online at any given time, compared to the 10-30k on the north american servers, which also completely start shitting the bed ping wise around 25k players.

Which person are you?



he's neither, because none of those situations let the person turn the story around to have themselves as the main part of the conversation, and then get to bleat on about it for 10 posts.

The thing about 50/50 guesses...they don't make you some sort of visionary

Cutter is one of those vaccinations cause autism clowns? El oh fucking el.

The real reason Cutter thinks he's always right is that every time he is right, he points it out. Every time he is wrong, no one gives enough fucks to call him on it. Someone could literally go through his post history and list hundreds of times he was wrong, but he knows no one is going to waste that kind of time on him.

Plus, like you said, even a broken clock is right twice a day. If you say everything sucks and everything is going to fail in an industry wher e most things do suck, and most things do fail, you're hardly showing any kind of special insight. You're just making the safe bet.

well despite his egotism alot of stuff does suck in remarkably unbelievable ways. Just look at everything EA has touched in the last few years, or blizzard the two main players in the game. Anyone can hear the suck coming for miles and miles, cutter is just more in-tune with suck, than most.

Have had a hackintosh c2q build running solid since snow leopard was released. (10.6x)4ish years now i think. best home computer I've ever built for people that were mostly computer illiterate. Dual boot via chameleon either xp or osx with an OS prompt right after POST. Your biggest concerns are really your motherboard choice and video card for apple compatibility which can be sussed out with the Osx86 wiki page. Other than that, combine a bootloader called Kakewalk with a few hours reading up on the install process for your particular hardware and the install ends up almost as easy as installing Win7. Who wants a mac pro for a ridiculously reasonable price?

Notably, Metacritic forces game devs to look at an aggregate of gamer's scores. Something that game devs generally dont bother doing or dont like doing.

And there it is on one web page that EVERYBODY knows about in the gaming industry.

That aggregate gamer score doesnt express everything important of course, but it says something about the desirability of a particular game to consumers.

Metacritic for all of its faults offers insights into the game consumer's mind that arent offered in any other way.

Warren should realize that metacritic can be a useful tool for game devs, if taken with a grain of salt.


I use it as a jumping off point for various industry reviews, but there's no way in hell I'd read the end user side...


Yeah but say a game you were thinking about buying got 50% user score on metacritic. IE half the users who tried it wrote unfavorable reviews on it. Wouldnt that strike you as particularly damning? You can say a lot of things about particular reviews and 0 point reviews and 10/10 reviews, but the average score rarely lies when you have a large enough sample.

Note: Im talking about user reviews, not paid 'professional' reviews.
No because people just vote 0 or 10 these days.

It should just be did you enjoy the game or not. That's all people want to know. If they enjoy XX game with they enjoy this XX game. People will make up their own mind about price (I hope/believe).

Thats why you take a bit of time and actually read through some of the reviews to tell if they were written by either trolls, fanbois, paid shills, or people with something actually valid to say. I can't say the "professional" reviews offer anything more in credibility and transparency in that way than the user scores, probably more expensive to hire user reviewing shills than it is professionals these days. The actual use by game designers and publishers of metacritic is another deal altogether, and makes games worse IMO because it gives the publishers a better understanding of the one thing they all cater to the most: The lowest common denominator.

Holy shit! Grim Dawn looks absolutely tits! wish i would have gotten in on the KS. Never played TQ. Played D3 beta before RMAH was introduced, and liked it for the most part, at least the part of act1 which was open, sad it turned out the way it did.

if Grim Dawn, and Diablo3 were real people and they had a fight, Grim Dawn would easily Fuck That Loser.

Canada is one of the, if not the only nation without a national financial securities regulatory system and it might not even matter. In the US we had one of the strongest corporate financial regulation systems for about 40 years. At least till 1980 and now it's been captured by corporate malicious malfeasants.
.

mostly off topic:

the bank of canada disagrees(crown owned financial regulatory body) with you. literally: bank of canada mandate:

WHEREAS it is desirable to establish a central bank in Canada to regulate credit and currency in the best interests of the economic life of the nation, to control and protect the external value of the national monetary unit and to mitigate by its influence fluctuations in the general level of production, trade, prices and employment, so far as may be possible within the scope of monetary action, and generally to promote the economic and financial welfare of Canada.

how much is DDR5 really worth anyway? sub $100 cards come with a 1GB and $10-20 more gets you double that. I'm sure if you're buying around 500TB of DDR5 the price goes way way down, probably much less than consumer pricing on DDR3.

this must be one of EA's added value decisions like centralizing all servers so that it's much easier for DDOS attacks to be effective. Good work EA on stopping all that hacking too, since having control over the hosting has stopped that completely as well. Whats your share price again?
