NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 vs GeForce GTX 980 - Should I upgrade?

No, you should wait for the 980ti. It's only a few months away.

Hope you all have 70 Gigs of HD space and a week to download.

Pfft. 5 hours tops, on my 105mbit connection. And I have been looking for things to fill up my 1tb Samsung 850 Pro SSD. I've got something like 700gigs free. XD

Corrupt judge decides to get in while the getting's good...shocker!

And the feds knew he downloaded this in the first place how exactly? That's the most important question that's not even been asked here.

Well, it was over bittorrent. If he was downloading to his public folder (which a lot of clients have as default), it would have been visible, I think.

That's why it's not so much a cautionary tale of the "dangers of bittorrent," but more about reasons why you should never use public trackers.

I will wait until the state of the pc port becomes clear. I recall 4's performance on PC being terrible.

Which was fixed not long after release and ran excellently, even when you unlock the settings to max them out.

Damn, this game and ArmA3 is really weighing on me to pull the trigger on a 980GTX. Must... resist.

Dude just wait for the 980ti. It's almost here! Right around the corner. I just may buy two. The 980 is too weak.

I assume 'neckbeard' is some sort of American thing, as I've not heard of such terminology. Is it fashionable?

For being just one guy, by himself, and not $77mil to toss around, this is looking pretty fucking cool to me, even if it's mostly a shell at this point. But its flexibility gives it lots of promise for user generated content and extensibility.

Does it promise all the breadth of Star Citizen? No. However, I'd argue it's more of a game at this point even still.

no no you missed my point... the dude hasnt made any updates to his log or been seen on his forums since early Jan

Ah well I haven't been keeping tabs on it really at all. Pretty sure he's gone months without uploading a video before though. No reason to assume he's died of face cancer or something...

What's happening now? A few disparate modules that do not in any way equal a game? Selling some stupid in-game assets (that you can't even use yet) for huge amounts of money? Let's see, what else... Broken promises maybe?
The game's now due out until next year, so of course it's not all playable yet. Broken promises? The game is bigger and better than ever, offering way more than was originally promised. How often does that happen? If you're talking about delays then I assume you think Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Unreal Tournament, etc, were all shit too? I mean, it's not like they're some of the most critical acclaimed PC games in history or anything.

You listed a bunch of mostly shit games that aren't even comparable to Star Citizen. And it's not just the budget, as Star Citizen looked much better from the reveal.

ForgedReality wrote on Mar 30, 2015, 16:32:
Aww, poor baby! What's the matter? Don't like it when someone gives their opinion? Nobody asked for yours either.
Saying that you want the game to fail isn't an opinion - it's an assertion. But this isn't the time or place for an English lesson.

ForgedReality wrote on Mar 30, 2015, 16:32:
I get it that you wasted a ton of cash on this non-game, and you're super hopeful that it pays off at some point, but by then will you even be able to enjoy it?
I'm already enjoying it, thanks. In fact it's one of my most played games. I regularly play Vanduul Swarm, both singleplayer and co-op. I'll be playing it even more when Star Marine launches and the social module is released. There's nothing wasted about the money I've spent.

ForgedReality wrote on Mar 30, 2015, 16:32:
Sure you're not putting too much faith into this ridiculous mess? You don't think they've overpromised at all? Lots of games have been made in less time and look better, play better, and are generally more fun, than this collection of tech demos.
The last games I got this excited about were Unreal Tournament and Half-Life 2. Both delivered. Further, as I've said numerous times, I'm already enjoying the game.

You don't like the game. That's fine. I do, though.

So that's a "no" on those other reviews then? Okay.

When you compare what was original planned and what is happening now it's very clear that more money DOES equal a better product. Not only that but no backer is obligated to pay any more than the game package, which has been available for as little as $20.

Limit Theory... are you taking the piss?!
Enemy Starfighter is a crappy indie game with no visual fidelity.
No Man's Sky is a casual PS4 game with a fraction of the fidelity.
Rodina... are you taking the piss?!
Eve: Valkyrie is a casual game designed for the PS4 with a fraction of the fidelity.
X: Rebirth scored 33 on Metacritic, with a user score of 3.2 - it is a terrible, terrible game.

Those games highlight why Star Citizen has received the funding that it has. No other game offers even close to the level of visual fidelity, depth or vision of Star Citizen.

Fuck you. It's one thing to be sceptical of the game - it's another to wish for it to fail. You're a horrible person and I hope you die of face cancer.

Well, yeah, but if you personally want the game and drop $40 after hearing about it constantly, you just added to the pool. It's not like you can sit back as a customer and go "Well they've got enough. I'll just wait for my free copy..."

(quotes are messed up because I edited them just for the one snippet)

Well, you edited them incorrectly. Lulz.

But for realsies though. There are lots of much less expensive games in this genre right now, and they're far more playable than this trash. You'd think they could outline a skeleton of a game before they go adding bells and whistles.

Is ARMA 3 worth buying?

Arma 3? It's more a combined arms simulator than a game, you need a beefy rig to run it. Don't expect a normal FPS configuration, spacebar won't make you jump - there's no jump in the sim/game. If you want to get over a fence you use a "vault" command that plays an animation of your avatar stepping over something. To enjoy multiplayer you'll need to join a community that uses teamspeak when playing - more so with Arma than other shooters.

Best advice is to go watch some Youtube videos to get an idea if it's something you'll want to invest the time into.

Yeah, it looks cool. I could probably get into it, but it sounds like a lot of prerequisites would make it a pain in the ass. :\ I imagine the hacking/griefing factor is pretty high too. Guess I'll pass.

The fact that this is so astronomically funded just serves to highlight one of humanity's greatest fallacies: more money = better product. There is no way in hell this is going to be a $77,000,000 game. There's no fucking possible way to spend that much money usefully. There is a law of diminishing returns, and there is only so much creativity and talent you can put into something. At best, it will be over-engineered just because they had money they had to spend, so it will turn into a gaudy, convoluted mess.

Also, just look at Apple. Their products are incredibly overpriced and full of flaws. They offer one of the worst user experiences you can buy. But people still buy that shit, despite its horrible cost of entry. Their profit margins are ridiculous. People turn to brainwashed sheep and buy Apple garbage because Apple can do no wrong. The same mentality is happening here with Star Citizen. I hope it flops.

I saw that article like four days ago. There's no way Samsung is buying AMD. AMD won't sell on the crux of their possibly biggest launch since ATi's 4870. The 300 series is likely to net them some handsome profits. Why would they just hand that opportunity over to Samsung? It's not happening.

I just downloaded the torrent of the video. Youtube won't let me set the resolution to 4k since I only have a 2k monitor, which is strange, because I swear I've been able to do it before on other videos.

Anyway, the downloaded video runs supa-smooth. Technically, the video is playing 4k content, but only at 2k resolution, so you'd think it would take even more processing power for the downscaling.

This just makes me want this shitty game even less. Saw a bunch of z-fighting, the voice acting was terribad, the 3rd person looks annoying as fuck to play as, and the game just looks boring and not very good graphics. $50 million for what?

yeh i was switched to 4k 60fps.. it does stutter a bit in the interior ship shots... which doesnt make much sense considering it should just be straight video... but i guess the encoder is doing some kind of variable bit rate thing there

anyhow in the space shots it seems ok, so thats kinda weird

The video uses JPEG compression, essentially. The more complex a frame is, the larger it is. If there are more solid areas that can be compressed, it will save space. If there is a lot of texture and pixel variation, there is less opportunity for compression because more pixels need to be individually specified.

I'm waiting to see what materializes.

the idea of Trek has always been grand, but i've always found the implementation to be rather bland and uninspiring, with the exception of a few eps here and there. to me there's no surprise that it never lasts - until they get writers and producers that really embrace the inspirational human side of the show, it'll just remain schlocky scifi that most people ignore. that's why i always hated it when enterprise and crew went down the warpath with alien race A, B, or C. it abandoned what made it potentially great in favor of cheap drama.

That's exactly why Babylon 5 is the far superior show.

preachin' to the choir bro. i've been trying to spread the gospel of B5 for years but it's sortof a difficult show to get into what with season 1 being entirely foreshadowing and buildup.

Yeah, the first season was a slowbie, but once the show starts to figure itself out, it's one of the best sci-fi things out there.

The sad story of Mollari; the Bester-Giribaldi drama; the Londo-G'Kar opera. Holy shit, this show has so much awesomeness packed into its story arcs, it's a shame it's such a niche show.
