For anyone dissing the game's graphics, check this video out first...

If it's not DX11, it sure does a great impression of it
What? Technically speaking that looks like utter shit! Now, having said that, I don't really care as I'm sucker for anything related to Aliens. I just think that even NS2 manages to top this thing visually. Still, my only fear is, that this game will be 10h SP with rince & repeat coop and a multi that no one will be playing two months after release.

If that's the case, it is indeed a bargain bin release for me.

Yep, nowadays the service and its three spawning executives are tied to the control panel. You can still disable the service though, and use nvidiaInspector to replace the control panel.

Obviously you can't adjust any multi-monitor, color etc. setting, but all D3D related stuff is directly accessible. And you can tweak a myriad of more things via the setup panel of Inspector, than you ever could via nvidia's control panel.

News Comments > Free Far Cry 3 with SSD Offer
5. Re: Free Far Cry 3 with SSD Offer Nov 19, 2012, 13:22 qsto
 
I just recently upgraded my old 80GB Intel G2 to 256GB 830. My first thought was to wait for 840, but 830 has been proven to be the most reliable drive in the market right now, and 840 is not THAT much faster to justify the price. Furthermore, jumping in blindly to a new SSD no matter how well received the manufacturer's past drives are is not very smart, unless you fully recognize the risks of being an early adopter.

Yes, it was. The controls were floaty and terrible. I installed and uninstalled in a matter of minutes after playing it.
You bought a game and uninstalled it within minutes? Some people have more money than sense.
I see what you did there...

Far Cry 2 was such a mess on PC, the controls and responsiveness made it complete garbage.

So I care less about FC3.
No, it wasn't.

Yes, it was. The controls were floaty and terrible. I installed and uninstalled in a matter of minutes after playing it. However, I am looking forward to FC3.
It was just a bad DX10 implementation. On DX9 the controls were smooth and totally responsive.

Doesn't take away the fact that it's a shit game...

So when a multiplat title bombs; and bomb this game did on consoles too, it's PC's fault. But when a multiplat title does great... on PC as well, like Skyrim and BF3, it's just collateral sales?

C'mon Blue, no mention of the pay-to-win DLC? They're now selling "shortcuts" that will unlock all the items for you @ $7 per class or category of vehicles. The package deal, which unlocks everything in the entire game instantly, costs $40.
Hardly pay-to-win. It's there to incentivise new players to stand a chance against folks who've clocked 300+ hours on the game. Especially the vehicle unlocks can be difficult to achieve if you start playing now. And after this patch, you can pretty much forget about tanks unless you sport a Reactive Armor from get-go. They also did it with BC2, so nothing new under the sun.

And as far as I'm concerned, I'm done with this game. This patch proved once again, that all DICE is capable of is nerfing, more nerfing, and breaking balance and gameplay mechanics.

Meh, not really concerned. PC gamer through and through, but GTA is the type of game that's better on a console.
So you'd rather play games at 600-720p than 1200-1600p? You'd rather not have anti-aliasing, high resolution textures or modding capabilities? You'd rather have longer load times, be forced to use a controller and have to put the disk in each time? So much for you being a PC gamer through and through".
Don't forget the completely lackluster performance. GTAIV on consoles chokes severely in high-action scenes, dipping the framerate down to 20's.

At launch, I was able to play with my E8500@3.8GHz and GTX260 @1920x1200 on high-very high settings, staying around 35-40FPS outside.

Is it still Remedy Entertainment that develops Max Payne?
Translation: I want to pretend I'm jaded and indifferent about gaming industry news (even though I post on a site where 90% of the content is gaming news) and seemingly oblivious about this title by reminiscing the "good old days" and making specious observations regarding the perceived new style of the presentation; a snarky comment on how mainstream kids these days are only attracted to violence; regardless of the fact that MP & MP2 were as mainstream as it gets back in the day... and aside the grandiloquent and pompous overwritten style of the narrative, all about violence.

News Comments > PC Alan Wake Breaks Even
30. Re: PC Alan Wake Breaks Even Feb 20, 2012, 14:13 qsto
 
I think more than anything, this only tells the tale of how small the overhead of producing a PC port in this multiplatform age is.
All the assets are already there, and recompiling the PowerPC instruction set to run on x86 isn't much of a task. All that remains is little bit if tweaking here and there.

Alan Wake as a whole was under development for five years, and yet this PC port was pushed out in five months. Naturally the fact, that PC was the lead platform in the beginning probably helped out here, but the game has changed so dramatically of its origins, that it's almost like an entirely different game from what was demoed at IDF back in 2006

This punk needs to learn to keep his mouth shut.
He may be a bit over his head, but calling such a nice and jovial fella a punk, just because he's enthusiastic about something he believes in and has landed on fortune & fame without quite knowing how to handle it, says more about you as a bitter old and jaded geezer, than about Markus.
