Why is it clickbait? Because you're a fan of the evil empire? Everyone should read it and every article like it and put those fuckers out of business.

I concur

"iPhone 6 Breaks Pre-Order Record."

So many people can't be wrong, now can they?

No question, this is going to be an immensely fun game, can't wait for it, but... has this anything in common story- or character-wise with FarCry (1)?

They are just using the name to get attraction as it seems.

That 3D viewing may result in temporary headaches or dizziness for some people is well known, however no degradation or any other issue affecting the long term health of your vision have been observed.

That's why I asked, I keep hearing people that they are afraid to lose or have their vision degraded permanently by using any fake 3D system (like OR, 3D vision or 3D movies).

I'm more worried about any persistent vision problems from using it, short and long term.

Why, precisely, are you worried about your vision because of 3d viewing?

Idiots

In that case, no money from me then. FarCry 4 will keep me busy long enough anyhow.

oh, BTW, no Temple of Osiris for me neither until it hits the very low bargain bin. You get what you deserve.

Good riddance and about time for my new system which I keep postponing for 1-2 years. Still using my old system which I built in August 2009 and still using my initial Win7 installation. Only things upgraded are my HDDs (bought SDDs) and my GFX card.

Still working like a charm

No real news on Act 2, except that it is months away (still writing dialogues, puzzles).

To me, this is the only part where they completely failed. Act 1 is very easy but still very enjoyable... hope they deliver with Act 2.

8GB is the correct answer, agreed. The question was way too easy

But again, as it has been mentioned at least 24937 times before, do NOT disable the pagefile, not even with 512GB of RAM!

The pagefile does more than only swap out data which doesn't fit into your RAM. It also untrue that the pagefile will slow down your system if you have plenty of RAM.

There is a reason for this file to exist on Windows machines, keep it enabled!

Full OpenGL 4.4 support just now? Did they not have that before?

Nvidia offers full 4.4 support for all GF 400 series cards and upwards since August 2013...

Outlaws.. those were the good times in deed. Can't remember how many times I played through the single player campaign, looking for all the fun secrets hidden in the levels... and of course the music. One of the best gaming soundtracks ever, along side with Outcast.

Unfortunately the game's installer is 16-bit, so you won't be able to install it on 64-bit OS'. There is also an issue with strange colors in the cutscenes (at least on any Win7 version and above) but all those problems can be bypassed.

I hope by the end of 2015 there will be plenty of Mantle optimized titles out there, and since Nvidia is now feeling the pressure from AMD, they might even start coding their own NV-optimized API.

I doubt that nvidia is really feeling a lot of pressure because of Mantle because this latest DX12 announcement basically already means the end of Mantle.

After the Mantle announcement months ago, I was surprised that nvidia didn't react to it at all. I first thought, they were just trying to ignore Mantle but that would have been stupid for them.

They don't need to release their own low-level API, that would be a complete waste of time. Mantle is not going anywhere soon and AMD is loosing to much resources on something, which only gives them a certain advantage (whenever all the bugs are ironed out) in one single engine: Frostbite (cryengine to follow soon).

Nvidia knew that Microsoft had to react to it and the solution is DX12. Nvidia will try everything, and without any doubt will achieve in delivering the best DX12 optimized drivers by next year.

Mantle will NOT have invaded the gaming industry by 2015 but nvidia will have the best performance again by that date... and at the same time spend all those resources and API which can be used at the same time by Windows PCs, xbones and Windows phones... it's a win-win situation, there is no reason for nvidia to spend any time on Mantle or whatever other low-level API, except DX12.

Competition. I'm loving it.

absolutely, competition is always good for the consumer. This is another fine example.

What's wrong with 60 FPS?

What's wrong with 60 FPS? Are you serious?

Some people have screens which have a higher refreshrate then 60Hz. Mine goes all the way up to 144 Hz (or 120Hz with 3d vision, which I intend to use).

There is a hugh difference in fluidity between 60 and 120+ fps, especially in 3D and this for a game which current PCs can easily render at 200-300 fps

Strange, somehow I believed when I entered this kickstarter project, that it will be released online through Steam...

Hopefully, I won't have to install another online distribution platform to get this adventure game which looks pretty good.

Sad news, it was a promising studio with many good ideas. I really enjoyed the game even if it had its flaws but leveldesign, gameplay, feeling, story, music were all great but it never got the gamer attention it deserved.

@Acleacius: I played through the game with kb&mouse and enjoyed the game very much, no problems.
