Like most tools like this one, they actually do more harm than help. I personally avoid this programs, especially the registry cleaner part...

Normally I would have bought this one straight away, but presently I'm boycotting all Square Enix games because they though it would be a great idea to make the other Tomb Raider game a Xbone exclusive..

So it's not because you are a priest, of the Temple of Syrinx?

Partly, but because today is Friday and the moon is standing too high in the sky, I honestly cannot take this as an excuse

Composer who did Drive? Niiice.

Not exactly. He wrote only part of the soundtrack, namely the background, ambient soundtrack of the movie. The more popular, worth mentioning tracks were composed by other guys.

Especially the successful song "Nightcall" by the French DJ Kavinski or "Under The Spell" by Desire.

Having said that, I not trying to downplay Cliff's work at all but the work he did for Drive was in the end only a standard soundtrack you would expect from such a production.

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

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.
