You'll never see a story titled "The 5 Most Mind-Blowingly Huge Machines Built By Religion" ... Or "The 5 Most Important Human Advances Thanks To Religion" ... Or "The 5 Most Made-Up Fairy Tales From Religion" ... Well, that last one maybe.

I have about 50 hours logged in Just Cause 2 with 60% of the total game complete. Running three GTX 580s in SLI and have always been able to use vsync.

Sigh... When will people learn that vsync is fucking pointless with three of the most powerful video cards on earth? Wasted performance, much? I have one N580GTX Lightning Xtreme and it's plenty powerful (most powerful single-GPU card on the planet right now). I never run with vsync. You shouldn't either. Why cap your framerate? Ridiculous.

I'll be shocked if Tuesday is a good day at DICE or EA.

They're going to make millions. Of course it will be.

Consoles need to go away. They are nowhere near as versatile as a PC, and there's really no need for a neutered version of a gaming machine. PCs are far more capable of being the all-in-one appliance that Sony and Microsoft are trying to create. Consoles are just cheap alternatives for lazy people who call themselves gamers, but really aren't real gamers. There is a misconception that PC gaming is drying up because distributors are forcing their devs to conform to a console-based world. It's bullshit.

Also, why the fuck does this news item mention Nintendo? HAHAHA! They haven't been relevant for many years. Nobody wants their stupid ass consoles. Nintendo consoles are the Apple IIe of the console world.

It probably depends on the engine.. but if its a fully dynamic shadow system with GI the textures need to come last simply because the texture shaders need to know when they are in "shadow" or in "light" and what color the light has.

They can't know that if they are rendered before the light.

How exactly frostbite 2 creates the GI and color probes though would be very interesting to know in detail..

Rage by the way is not even on the same level of technology as frostbite 2, its like comparing a rubber dingy to a nuclear sub. ;p

lolol

Have you looked in the game? If you go under single player there are challenge modes and there is an option there for co-op too. If you are looking for the new co-op campaign, there is a giant pillar thing that moves down that you have to portal into together in order to get there.

The DLC was applied automatically as an update so if you keep steam open fairly often you most likely already have the DLC installed.
kthx. I'll check it out tomorrow maybe.

People only pirate shit because they can. Not because they would have otherwise bought it. 90% of the games out there aren't worth buying, at least not for the exorbitant amount they want to charge for them. Ridiculous. Yes, rush a product out the door so it's fucking horrible and half-finished, and then charge for a complete product. How about this: FUCK YOU.

People steal because they're assholes. I, like most people around here, can pirate if we want, but we choose not to. I do agree that most titles aren't worth their launch price, not even close, however, we'll wait untill it finally comes down to a price we feel is fair/reasonable. Being impatient is no justification for theft.

I didn't mean to suggest that it was justification for anything, nor that it was even a case of impatience. I just think a great deal of piracy simply comes from the fact that there is no other option for some people.

Perhaps they want a game but they're 12 so they can't afford to even wipe their own ass. Or perhaps it's something they might be considering buying, but they're holding out due to the fact that there's no way to see if they'd really like it or not because no shareware/demo version was made available. They then pirate it to check it out, and sometimes they then purchase it, other times they uninstall it, or if it's semi-decent, they might keep it because "hey I already pirated it..." or they might hold out until the price justifies the purchase.

Either way, I don't think it's as clear cut a case as these distributors would have the public believe -- that every copy pirated translates to a lost sale. I'd suggest that's far, FAR from the truth. Back when shareware was the norm, I checked out TONS of games to see if they were cool enough to buy. Most of them weren't. Since there is no other option for previewing software these days, many turn to piracy. Not every download is a guarantee that that person was going to buy it. When they figure out the game is shit, that's a lost sale, but not BECAUSE they pirated it, rather because the game was shit. Distributors just don't want to admit that maybe their product just isn't very high quality in the eyes of their consumers, so they blame piracy.

Furthermore a number of pirate games to see if they like them and then go back and purchase them if they do (for the multiplayer, etc.)

Exactly. Remember back in the day when companies would produce demo versions of games so you wouldn't have to end up wasting your money on something you can't return?

Maybe instead of bitching about piracy and making up numbers, these companies should fucking take a look at WHY people are pirating and take steps to make their actual product and its after-sales support more enticing rather than simply looking at the bottom line. At least make an attempt to alleviate the feeling that consumers feel like they might be getting ripped off if they buy something essentially sight unseen.
