I'm using one. It's one of those things that once you move to it you're never going to want to go back to using a non-adaptive synch monitor. But then again I always played with vsync on before.. if you always play with vysnc off I guess it's going to be the same experience, minus the tearing.

Does it fuck with your mouse? I leave vsync off because of how it screws the mouse up and makes me want to punch something. Wouldn't mind getting rid of tearing, but not if my mouse feels like I'm dragging it through mud.


The whole point of G-sync (and moving the sync operations from GPU software to monitor hardware) is it's not supposed to introduce any input lag. But I haven't tried it myself.

Finally finished Witcher 3 last night, after 120 hours or so. It was awesome, AND I got a surprisingly good and fulfilling ending without even really trying! Except for (SPOILERS) Radovid still being alive because I didn't follow through the assassination subplot and him winning the war and hunting down and exterminating all nonhumans and remaining mages/witches/herbalists, but who cares! Seeing Ciri become a witcher and set off on her own adventures with a brand new silver sword you give her made it all worth it. (/SPOILERS)

Now I count down the days to an expansion...

You don't deserve a refund simply because you do not like a game. No matter how exorbitantly negative your views on it are.

Nobody does hype like GW2's PR department. But, role-playing in PvP? Some one in their marketing droids seem confused on that mix.

They said "role-based play," which is what you might say to describe having classes in so many other games. It's a valid distinction to make against the current sPVP gameplay.

Disclaimer: I have no idea how these things work.

However, it seems like:

1] Publisher and developer falsely promote game with mockup advertising

2] Developer subcontracts out development

3] Only publisher and not developer is left legally culpable for false advertising

4] ???

I get that this is a civil case, but these settlements where certain parties yet not others are magically exonerated via settlement, against any logical argument of guilt of the various parties as a whole, makes me facepalm.

It was the decision of the plaintiffs (the guys suing SEGA) to let Gearbox off the hook. They were not "magically exonerated," they were just putting up a fight. Sounds like the plaintiffs weren't willing to put up with that much hassle to make a point (and they didn't have sufficient evidence against Gearbox, otherwise they wouldn't have let them go). So now they're just going for whatever money they can get from the party left holding the bag.

a small petty nitpick but i wish they had another name than 'summer' sale since alot of the world will not be entering summer in june.

They've been having hemisphere-neutral events for a few years now. For example, this is from Holiday '13

Wasn't there recently news that you could get some kind of refund from a lump sum of cash?

The article touches on that, apparently nothing was finalized. And now that it's no longer a class action, that's off the table completely. It was ruled that you can't just say everyone who bought the game deserves a refund, it'd have to be limited to people who can reasonably attest to having been misled. Can't say I disagree.

So, if SEGA settles, they'll only be paying the two guys who filed the suit. Something tells me they won't be splitting $1.25 million, either.

There are some skills that make accumulated adrenaline increase your damage, as well as give you a small chance to instantly kill an enemy with any hit (different than a normal finisher, it just randomly decides whether you'll do super bonus damage that equals their remaining health). But you might not want to combine those with other things that spend it. Such as the skill that lets you use up full adrenaline on casting a supercharged, fully-unlocked sign without having to invest points in that tree.

Um, no, this is week two of their free DLC thing. Temerian armor and the barber were available at launch, while the Yen outfit and new quest just came out. Next week there will be two more things, so on and so forth for eight weeks total.

I sincerely doubt you're the first to guess any price. But that sounds about right to me.

Yes, only obscure original copies of GTA:SA are still technically AO, so it's effectively M. But the reminder does serve to reiterate how much of a farce the ESRB really is, at least in how they handle the whole M vs. AO thing... GTA V has far more graphic sexual content and nudity than San Andreas, with no need of modding to enable it, yet it keeps its Mature rating and mainstream availability.

Does anyone know if they have done anything about streaming strip club titties? I'm sure they wouldn't dare ban GTA V outright, despite the fact that they should to remain ideologically consistent, because that would instantly kill a huge chunk of their traffic... As it stands, it sounds like they're using an AO ban as a way around such questions. Rolleyes

There are guards, explicitly named as such, who will catch you stealing if you do so right in front of them and probably attack you. It's just that there are so few of them in villages compared to a military outpost that you're unlikely to be seen stealing most of the time. It warns you if you open up a container within their view.

Not playing KF2 until they stop monsters from blatantly teleporting behind your back. Not only does the player move like a turtle, they STILL can't make this mechanic work gracefully, while L4D solved this 7 years ago.

Well, I feel plenty mobile when I'm sprinting backwards and outrunning almost any threat (and when I can't outrun them, I jump over ledges and stuff to outwit their pathfinding). What would you prefer they do?

Lol, first time I've ever heard of buying a stereo from Cheech's van in an alleyway described as "trying to catch a break." Oh yeah, I am feeling so oppressed by retail prices!

Since when did "choosing not to make available to their customers" become "refuses to distribute"? They already have Postal and Postal 2, why do they need another random mass murder game?

I dunno, ever since the world at large agreed on the meaning of the word "refuse?" As in, to say no, which they did.

You can manually aim while shooting the crossbow or throwing bombs by holding the key/button down instead of tapping it.
