Oh my fucking god. the 780 is so motherfucking old!!! Come out with the fucking 880 already! Where's the new fab tech?

no kidding. my guess is that TSMC's very limited 20nm fabs are turning out only Apple chips for the iPhone 6.

What's incredible is that intel has been shipping on that node for 2 years now, and functional 14nm Broadwells have been demoed. IMO, 14nm intel x86 chips are going to utterly dominate non-apple tablets in a year or so. power/performance ratio is going to be pretty epic.

I no this is blasphemy to many, but with the backlog I have and it's only going to get larger. I'm more now for 15 hour'ish length games, For many games that go much longer my ADHD kicks in anyway as I become a bit bored repeating its game play for so long. I rather it just end around 15 and get to the next game. This is about the only chance I have at seeing the light of the backlog tunnel.

But I'm totally fine buying quality games at 75% off even if I don't get to them. A it is still $ in the devs pockets. B. It is setting a market and has played a factor in the lower costs of games.

That's like the Stick of Truth sitting at $60. I want it, but it doesn't match the value of so many other turn-based games out there. So I wait.

I almost always play through single player games on the easiest difficultly level. Turns a 20 hour game into a 12 hour game. Guess that makes me a content tourist, rather than a gamer!

just ordered mine today, looking forward to giving them a spin this summer

I'm tempted to buy one, but I'd rather wait for CV1. More polish, etc.

Also tempted, but I'll wait for the games. i hope CV1 ships a 1440p screen.

Fantaz wrote on Apr 14, 2014, 14:53:
what about the requirements for 2560x1440 resolution? I assume this is only the minimum for 1080p? I want to get 30+ FPS

I have 2 GTX 770 2GB cards in SLI and a 4770k with Sabertooth motherboard and 8GB RAM so I hope I'm good...

That all depends on how much Vram the game will use. 2GB is probably enough, but we'll see. There's only a couple games that use more than 2GB. Otherwise you should be golden. Remember, there's 360/PS3 versions of this game, so this game won't be a as crazy as a game designed for PC/Xbone/PS4 from the ground up.

SST: I've been looking forward to that scene, but didn't expect it to happen so early in the season.

mch, the build up to the awesomeness was killing me. They took soooooo long to get to it, my face was buried in my hands most of time. I could barely take it, knowing what was going to happen.

Yep I have to say that is a pretty damn good impression. I miss the hell outta that show. Now that Shameless is done we have nothing to watch on Sunday evening. And no we don't like Game of whatever. Tried a couple of times to get into that and just don't do it for us.

But Mad Men is coming back on! And if you are even remotely a fan of lawyer shows, The Good Wife, is hugely entertaining and excellently crafted. It pulls off the "storyline-of-the-week with overarching plot" better than any show I've ever seen before. The cast is also fantastic.

I've said it a hundred times, best thing they could do is make a persistent ARPG FPS Borderlands, they'd make billions.

Another tired old single player arpg... dime a dozen.

BL has always been a co-op game. Don't know where you get that from. The biggest concern is that Gearbox's track record with games it has other people make for them is... well... a little less than good.

I didn't think a 120mm radiator would have the capacity to cool 500W, but 71 degrees at max load is really, really impressive. The 3rd party 290's and this card just further prove how horrible the reference cooler was. I hope AMD learned something from that fiasco. Don't cheap out on a cooler, dammit.

So this game actually benefits from hyper-threading? That would be the first wouldn't it... to this day HT has actually only impaired game performance iirc.

Here I was thinking to hold on to my 2500k@4.7GHz for a few more years, maybe upgrade to Maxwell once it arrives. Guess I'll be dead in the water in six months

This game will probably run just fine on an i3 with hyper-threading. I'm not worried about my 3570k@4.0 for at least a year. I hope I can ride it until the socketed Broadwell w/ Iris Pro.

Can't imagine paying money to watch people play video games.

Why not? Go watch some of the old international games on youtube, some of them are pretty epic if you know what's happening.

Much more exciting than most sports... like say, two people hitting a ball across a net or someone hitting a ball towards a hole...

Word. I pretty much play a little DOTA so I can be up on what's going on in the pro game. After last year's Tourney, this is must watch for me. Game 5 of the championship was nothing short of incredible. Wicked fun.

they'll keep the 4", and add a 5". Old Steve-o will roll in his grave, but Apple doesn't get to decide the size. The market has spoken. BIGGER.
