Cmon nVidia. The 700 series is old as fuck. We want the 880. Hurry the fuck up! I'm impatiently waiting to upgrade from my GTX580, and there's no way in hell I'm buying a 780 this late in the game. The new platform is going to be a huge step up from the 700 series, so let's just get on with it and stop massaging this old-ass tech. >:\

Dude! I loved that game! I played so many hours of it. I still have the box and disks, in almost pristine condition.

I expect the console makers to react to this, specially if it becomes popular. Bringing it to Steam makes more mainstream, which means more people downloading illegal ROMs. Now if the big console companies were smart they'd sell their own digital copies to be played on the emulators. $5 a game for something they created 15+ years ago = easy revenue. Adding some light DRM via Steam would probably take very little effort.

This will never work. These decades-old games probably still have licensing clauses attached to them, and the "console makers" don't own those rights.

Those who developed/distributed the game likely won't want to have their products played in a less-than-ideal situation. Playing games through emulation has its own inherent issues that would represent a less refined experience that the license holders probably wouldn't be okay with because it makes them and their product look bad.

This is to say nothing of support issues that would crop up when users encounter problems and then expect someone to be there to help them because they bought the game.

This is a niche market, and most people won't even bother with it. Certainly not enough to really be profitable, even if they somehow managed to overcome the problems I outlined above. Licensing/support/additional overhead--all of these things cost money.

Nope. Never going to happen. Ever.

Comcast Bumping Modem Rental Fee to $8.

This is one of the reasons I bought my own modem. That, and the one Comcast provides isn't nearly as good as the Motorola SB6141.

Soooo tempted to watch this, but I'm sure it's a spoiler...

Been waiting to see the fall of Rapture since the first Bio.

To be honest, not sure what you consider a spoiler. I'm not really seeing a spoiler, there's not action only exposition, the setup. The only new info is 'the case' and seeing Rapture, as a walkthrough during the exposition.

The beginning of the video does say it includes spoilers...

RE: Microsoft to patch zero-day IE bug now under attack.

The patch should just uninstall IE and the notes should say "Install Firefox and/or Chrome."

In general, I hate RTS games. It is personal preference, you're correct, but RTS tends to be frantic clicking with you relying at least partially on AI, whereas TBS tends to be entirely you and statistics, no AI involved.

Fixed your brainfart.

What I would give for a proper Space Hulk sequel or even a remake/reimagining. A proper PC game though, like the first Space Hulk.

Yeah. Screw this boring turn-based crap. >:\

They probably just received word from their lawyers that their existing trademark on "Half-Life" already covers "Half-Life 3," so they're like, "k, then we won't pay for another trademark. :)"

"I'm sorry, but why on earth are you buying two GTX 690s when the R9 290X is specifically designed for 4K resolution monitors and you don't have to worry about your system being taxed?"

"The leaked benchmarks peg the Radeon R9-290X as equal or slightly faster than Nvidia’s GTX Titan"

The GTX 690 is more powerful than the R9-290x and the Titan. The only problem is I can only have two of them I think, whereas 3 or 4 R9-290X's would be superior.

Not sure what I'm going to do about this.

I think I will go with Nvidia. I have seen the inconsistent delivery of frames on Radeon cards and it looks absolutely horrible.

Not to mention, PhysX. I realize that it's really just worthless eye candy, but it adds so much to the experience! I can't go back to ATi now. nVidia remains the top of the high-end market for a reason.

And GTX 880 is just around the corner.. ::squeee!!::
