From what I've heard, it won't run well on any GPU if you don't have the processor to back it up. And even then, you're not gonna get the 100 fps you were hoping for, unless maybe you're a world record holder for CPU overclock.

I really hope M&B 2 happens. After all the Bannerlord announcements happened last year, all talk about it just seemed to dry up. Warband is a brilliantly fun game, but an updated version would be nice.

They showed a teaser/developer diary just a few weeks ago. It's coming.

Fair enough. But if it were so easy to come up with a working vaccine for ebola -- lord knows those tens of thousands of Africans have waited long enough! -- why wait to whip one together in less than six months following a global media scare campaign?

Wait, what?
You hope something that could save the lives of tens of thousands of people in Africa flops?

Why would Johnson & Johnson give a fuck about helping people in Africa? It's gonna be at every Walgreens, CVS, and Rite-Aid in America and cost ten times more than your similarly-effective flu "vaccine" they already use to fleece people with twice a year. We have NO REASON to waste money on that shit. Maybe if it doesn't sell and a few years from now they have warehouses full of the junk, they'll send it overseas for a modicum of press exposure. It's not a cure, so I doubt it'll do anything, anyway.

It's just another swine flu or H1N1 or SARS hype job. Except with it being specifically a disease being brought here from abroad by unknowing hosts, it's also another reason for them to indefinitely imprison anyone they'd like once they catch them going through an airport.

At any rate, I hope those ebola vaccines fucking flop. Sadly, I'm not so sure they will...

The game is clearly CPU-limited...

Yes... I really hope they crank up the destructibility of environments even more. That has always been the entire appeal of the game for me, and it was really impressive for its time in JC2. Now with a raised baseline of console specs and ridiculously powerful GPUs on PC, they ought to be able to push the envelope pretty far.

Sort of on topic, I just finished watching Band of Brothers over the weekend. This is the third time Ive seen it I believe, still one of the best shows ever and still as clearcut and powerful as the first time Ive seen it.

Aren't there rumours going round that Spielberg and Hanks are teaming up again for another WWII epic mini-series? This time it's apparently based on the "Mighty 8th" Army Air Force.

I hope its true and I hope it's as realistic as Band of Brothers was or put in other words its the complete opposite of "Red Tails".

I hope you've seen The Pacific? I was expecting it to be named in your post, but just in case, thought I'd mention it.

From the horse's mouth:

To be perfectly clear: Just Cause 3 will be available in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It will be distributed as a retail box and digital download. It is not a Free To Play game. It does not feature in-game micro transactions.

Katy Perry has been solidly in "look, but don't touch" territory ever since she hooked up with Russel Brand... I don't even want to know what kind of nasty crap he infested her with.

Because they invented the obviously superior IW.net along with Modern Warfare 2. Basically they don't want to provide servers for millions upon millions of players, so they off-load it onto your peer's shitty machine/connection, instead.

And how do they know there aren't ghosts isn't a Flying Spaghetti Monster? Seems to me I haven't seen any solid evidence either way.


Fixed.

False analogy. People are energy, neither created nor destroyed, only transferred. We transition into something else, it's merely a question of what.

Worm food. You're missing the part where energy can turn into matter and vice versa.

The songs aren't a huge deal for me, but if I wanted to, I could re-install my original, now technically rated AO DVD version!

Ah, well, turns out it doesn't matter for me... Pulled the trigger on a GTX 970 last night and I already have my free copy of Far Cry 4. Not buying the other two, anyway.

Always this internet uproar when ubisoft or EA pulls something like this but the problem is people still buy there games/DLCs, The day people start speaking with there wallets then the companies might start to change for the better or maybe it is to late for that.

...and now that fucking rumor going around with Rockstar that they are gonna use some 'new' DRM.

It's new-ish, called Denuvo. It's been used in the last couple of FIFA games and most recently Lords of the Fallen. The company boasts of their success in avoiding being cracked for as long as a month and a half. People hate it because it uses CPU power to do what it does, reducing performance in the game.

Everyone is freaking out now, because all upcoming Ubisoft games have disappeared from the Steam store... FC4, The Crew, and AC: Unity. Was first thought to be unique to the UK region for wacky retailer deal reasons, but now it's everywhere!

Too bad GTA doesn't let you roll your own toon in open world. I'd have a lot more respect for GTA, if at the very least they let you play as neutral, if not a good toon.

Forced villain? Bleh... Shakefist

Erm, and what would you be doing in Grand Theft Auto, if you don't want to do anything illegal?

Arg. I don;t want to spend money on a PS4 version of a PS3 game with basically no differences, but I wonder if the PS4 version of Rocksmith is more stable? My PS3 copy crashes all the time and locks up the whole machine. Very irritating.

All your DLC transfers over from PS3 to PS4, which would be reason enough for me (outside of better performance, of course). But they also just announced next-gen players get the upcoming $30 Jimi Hendrix 12-song pack for free. So if you're interested in that, you might consider it a rebate of sorts.

First-person is going to be awesome!

NKD wrote on Nov 4, 2014, 15:47:
I already own and have extensively played the game on PS3. If the game had new story content or something, then that combined with the HD enhancements MIGHT make it worth picking up at full price, or if they offered me a discount for having already purchased their game at full price at launch. But as it stands now it's going to be The Corsair's Harbor and later a $10 Steam sale for me.

Your argument bases itself upon "full price" being some arbitrary measure of value, a cost that shall never be exceeded by any one game. That's just wrong... When their $60 game is better than every other game released in that entire year combined... Buying it twice is a pittance. No joke.

If you missed out on an epic gunfight in the savannah with wildfires raging around you climaxing in your rocket-propelled grenade plunking down to the ground five feet in front of you because of a mis-fire, creating one of the most unexpectedly awesome and compelling moments in your entire life as a gamer... I kind of feel sorry for you.
