News Comments > AMD HBM-based 300 Series Announced

AMD really needs to hit it out of the park, because discrete GPU market is clamoring for some stiff competition to push the prices down to manageable levels. Their $649 price point is more than decent, but only if it competes with Titan X on at least 4k.

Prices starting at $780...
Fuck it, I'm getting a PS4.
Or at least until AMD releases something on their end, competition supposed to lower prices and all that.

Samsuing is one of the worst patent poachers in the world. Couldn't happen to a worse company with a proven record of illicit and relentless copying and plagiarizing.

They might not have purposefully gimped 970's performance but did nothing to correct misinformation being bandied about as truth on review sites and on the web, until being caught red handed by end users, amounting to breach of trust, deception and understandably appearing conspirational.

I inadvertently installed it during the latest driver update. And it is pretty handy if you want to record and organize some recent games in one place. Also, if you have ever used RadeonPro before, some of the features are now updated with this client as far as optimization for games are concerned. But it is primarily a tracking device on your usage statistics, as well as a front for free-to-play games and ads. One aspect of usage stats reflects in the points you collect that allows you to enter sweepstakes, etc.

Not much of a feature per se, just a function to not trigger the elevator door to open. The customer gets the 'feature' of elevator door that opens to continue the game.

Maybe MS should consider ordering more white xbox bundle with this game. Those are selling rather well.

It's pretty sad, that DF had so much goodwill coming right after their KS campaign. Now the only good thing that they did was to start a trend that made possible Shadowrun, Wasteland 2, and other games that were since released. Schaefer, while a talented developer, is not much of a businessman and believes his own hype I think a bit too much whether it be internal or external to his company.

Why? Can't you look at myriad of Let's Plays and other videos on Youtube? It is not really that hard to get a feel for how a game will play...

News Comments > New GeForce GPUs & Drivers
50. Re: New GeForce GPUs & Drivers Sep 19, 2014, 17:11 JSP
 
Overall GTX 980 is around 10% to 12% faster than 780 TI. I think it consumes less power, but some review sites show inflated consumption rates that are worrying. Still the card to get is 970 as it is demonstrably better than 770, but as far as the best of the best something like 780 TI Gaming from MSI beats the 980 consistently, even when overclocked. So overall a bit disappointed, here's hoping for a 980 TI or some cool custom cards to take the crown even from nVidia's own let alone any card from AMD.

Polytron under FBI investigation

Phil Fish is under FBI investigation for having funneled money to develop Fez through Indie Cade, a system that grants money to indie game developer, whose investors including Fish himself sat on the Indie Gaming Festival judging panel that awarded his still unfinished game grand prizes in 2011 and 2012. The return on the investment by all involved in this scheme was around $700,000.

As far as compression software is concerned, nothing beats Bandizip, imo.

News Comments > The Sims 4 and Patch Released
12. Re: The Sims 4 and Patch Released Sep 3, 2014, 07:20 JSP
 
Things added to Sims 4 (from my cursory impressions)

Expanded architectural options
Structures with curved design is now possible, and the columns do feature a bit more in decorative aspect of home.
One can also determine the height of ceiling, and that of window placements as well.
The entire house structure can be moved.
The size of placement objects can be adjusted

Ability to move between neighborhoods freely, its integration with future DLCs and expansion packs remains to be seen

Custom Sims, Families, and Lots can be uploaded directly to Gallery, which can be

Premium membership akin to Battlefield premium service

Things Taken Out

More or less objects and functions as present and integrated via all the expansions for past games of the series, including but not limited to:

Pools
Children age phase
Babies stationary objects tethered to cribs (appears automatically with baby addition)
Ghosts
CAS (a big one and sticking point for a lot of disapproval)
Open world (loading persists in moving to parts of neighborhood)
Reduction of world size
Editable terrain
World editor (its release pending?)
Basement
Story Progression (the Sims age and die, and in their place a new NPC group fills the void)
4th floor and up
Height difference
Cars
Service NPCs (repairmen, tax collector, etc.)

In addition, no 64-bit support (usable RAM still limited to 3.5 Gb)

I understand that there is Pavlovian, frothing rage and loathing whenever Microsoft is mentioned in BluesNews, but bing is just another service that one can opt not to use. Just like one can opt not to install the 'optional' bing desktop in windows update.

I use the search engine sometimes and they do a pretty decent job. Its Map is actually better than Google for its cleaner and more intuitive interface, imo.

Better to put them on a pedestal than scaffold. Don't think these extol the virtues of war or encourage submission to the War Machine. The soldiers are just as much victims in this venture as people who suffered during that time, if anything are testament of war being hell.

That said, Google could do better to customize 'doodles' for different countries or regions where they hold some significance. I think they can afford to do that.

Yep, still over priced. I can get a comparable Nvidia for under $200 and I don't have to put up with the constant driver problems from AMD.

Spreading FUD about AMD drivers is so 2000s, please get on with the times. And tell me which back of the van in some skidrow one can possibly take off with a Geforce 760 or 660ti for below $200.

No, joking aside, they actually confirmed on the first day of announcing it that it would be an offline game.

That's pretty great. I play Sims 3, and think the best thing about Sims 4 is that perhaps Sims 3 DLCs will get some discount as celebration of its release. Island Pradise here I come!

NSA apparently didn't think the info mining was worth the trouble, and gave MS a go ahead to release a Kinectless SKU. Canadian prices for Eyeless Xbox is now actually $50 better than PS4. I appreciate MS setting the prices at parity with that of US.

It will be to Sims to what SimCity 5 was to SimCity. Consistent online connection for authentication being one thing
