You're acting surprised at this? Canada acted the same way under the Liberals to the US, the US acted the same way under Obama to the Conservatives in power. Diplomatic responses were also pretty damned angry, and then it dropped off the front page. Though under the Liberals they ran with the anti-US sentiment for over 5 years on it.

I am well aware of the diplomatic bullshit bingo games that are played So no I am not surprised. But our head of state is so deep in the sphincter of US diplomacy that ANY response is news worthy here... of course I am not expecting any actual consequences anyway ,)

Note that this is not a final ruling. EUGH will decide later this year what the legal status of video games is.... as usual, the vzbv was seeking a lawsuit before the law was even established properly by the EU courts. The directive was not unclear whether we can trade freely in SOFTWARE, but the debate is whether video games are software or art.

Gonna be an interesting year.

man that bit about tricking people into not being able to rate the game below 5 stars, that is just outrageously amoral. i would expect that from some shady eastern european malware dev, but jesus, the biggest game publisher in the world? do they really need to resort to stealing every last cent like this?

It's also against Google Play Store TOS....

Venetica is a finished released game from Europe, but hasn't been released in the US yet (well afaik). I'm guessing it's something to do with contract disputes or maybe bankruptcy issues, economy has been a bitch.

DTP, the maker of that game, has gone bankrupt in 2012 right near the release of Venetica in Germany ;p That aside, it's also a completely shit game.

That Yamato trailer is like... 3 years old ~.~ but what's even more hilarious, is that you can watch the entire movie in the related video links on the side... yay? ;p

Ya ya, I know it's old, but seeing as I only found out about it the other day it's new to me ... and it's never been posted here so it's new to Blues.
Figured there might be some old farts like me around here who grew up with Star Blazers and might appreciate it... and the fact you can watch the whole thing on the tube is just a bonus, which I did last night. They did a pretty good job, kinda falls apart towards the end though.
Also it seems the franchise has been picked up by an american company who's looking to make another movie based on the IP.

Yeah the movie isn't half bad. But how could you ever hope to put countless episodes into 1 movie and have it not fall apart.... either way you brought back some memories hehe.. I watched the original Yamato animation like a few months back and had all but forgotten that they made a live action adaption....

Either way, I didn't mean to bash on the news. Just was surprising to see this

Aren't all of the processors it supports 64-bits to begin with? It would be a weird kind of stubbornness that would lead you to have a 64-bit processor but expect play high-end games in 2014 on a 32-bit OS.
There's a whole pile of people out there who are stuck in the "32bit is all I need" mentality still. Same as people who buried their head in the sand when 16bit support was dropped.

Heh, 16bit support... the memories....

Both GPU and CPU trends are point to AMD losing share.... ugh. I am no great fan of ATI cards, but I am starting to worry about AMD. Amd is still in the business of making CPU's, right?

Mining bitcoins is now done on a more industrial scale with ASIC chips. GPU mining is obviously not profitable unless the BTC value climbs enormously in value which will probably not happen in the short-medium future.

GPU mining is, for now, profitable with scrypt-based crypto-currencies.


I was talking about ASIC mining of bitcoins, which hasn't been profitable ever since they put server farms up trying to corner the mining

The only real reason why should avoid bitcoin is that it's not anonymous... and you can forget mining for bitcoins as well.. power cost to bitcon value (even at the current insane prices) is 9 to 1. Meaning you are better off producing power and selling it with a 50% rebate than mining for bitcoins....

Yep, so far they have NA, EU, and AUS. And I think they said dedicated servers will be coming eventually.

The only Youtuber critics I ever really trust are Totalbiscuit and Angry Joe because they are both more than willing to bash the fuck out of a game they think deserve it, and more often than not they are AAA releases like BF4.

TB loved BF4.

Maybe because BF4 is a blast to play? Technical issues doth not make a great game bad.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Mantle Update Released

TheEmissary wrote on Jan 31, 2014, 01:56:
Did it ever occur to you that some people game on 120 or 144hz monitors.

Most modern at least the highly threaded ones respond more to the number of cores than the core frequency. Games like BF3 and BF4 are examples of this, with at most 5 fps apart when using the same GPU.

Its really too early to call this as we have no idea what Nvidia response to Mantle is going to be. The rumor mill suggests that the next Nvidia GPUs (Maxwell) are going to have an ARM co-processor to offload tasks from the main processor. If the rumors are true then both companies have been focused on eliminating the CPU bottleneck when using their GPUs.

Its going to be an interesting 18months to see where this ultimately settles at. My early guess is that depending on performance this could cause a price war between the two GPU companies. This all depends on how many Mantle games are announced and get released in that window as well.

This rumor is why I hold back upgrading at the moment...
