Most games don't come close to utilizing 2g of card memory. Statistically, about 85% of "pc gamers" systems only have 4-8g ram and a 1-2 GB card, barely 4% run 4GB vram. My 760 from over a year ago has 4GB, and the system I paired it will will last for years to come without upgrading. My son's 970 in his new PC this year will summarily last many many years without the need to upgrade.

I mentioned to make sure you buy the 4 GB because it makes sense to true gamers -- not because it's a popular option.

Gotta wait for the good deals if you want to save a buck as a pc gamer, I got the gigabyte 970 with 4 GB for $250 a couple months ago and it's a freeeq destroyer - incredible card.

Do make sure you get 4 GB, well worth it if you want to stay with your card awhile at this point.

Borderlands Online. Been saying we need something like that for years and it's in China only...

Course I'm assuming it will have a robust random loot system in an FPS world that is done in an engaging way. Guess we'll see... eventually.

...Just read it will be a mobile game too... which means it will likely suck unless the mobile version is different.

I'm starting to wonder when exactly it was the people here stopped caring about the PC as a platform. Any remotely hype title comes along and all sins are forgiven and the $60 transactions start to flow. If you're purchasing a sloppy port and an HD texture pack for $60, you really lose a lot of that moral high ground when it comes to bitching about other titles being ripoffs.

Probably not all that many PC folks respond to the GTA5 threads, but aside from that (for various reasons not limited to GTA4)--yes, $60 even with the supposedly "free" game--is a ludicrous price that only a mongoloid would pay...;) $39.95 is a much more rational price. PCs are selling globally right now at a rate of some ~35M a month, which is more than the PS4 and the xBone combined have sold since they shipped, and in two months the sale of PCs right now eclipses the entire ten-year run of the xb 360.

Kind of puts the true picture of consoles where it belongs--in the small potatoes category. But that's alright--let companies like Rockstar and Ubisoft delude themselves about that. Just leaves more success to companies like Valve and the Kickstarters...:D


Walt got it right. I kinda miss the days of the console dolts parroting the pc dying fad - always a good thing to be handed on a platter those who's opinions don't matter.

Consoles are for casual fun, and the only recent one out there that shines in the family/friend fun dept is Wii U. For srs bsns gaming it's PC -- always has been, and nothing in history or the foreseeable future changes that fact.

Sure, Rockstar certainly does plan how to double on sales, fortunately for them their timing allowed them to earn the "superdip" achievement and get a triple dog dip.

Of course they assume people will buy it more than once. Some do, I certainly don't.

New report: DHS is a mess of cybersecurity incompetence.

Since when has the government ever run a program "competently"?

Government != competence
Govt = throw a ton of taxpayer money at it and hope it works. And when it doesn't, take more, throw more.

But that doesn't stop the ignorant from thinking they should run just about everything...

I keep waiting for one of the xbone and ps4 games to make me want to buy their "next gen console". Destiny got me the closest (love FPS, love ARPG loot system), but it's a fps on a console so that's a 100% no buy for me.

SSB4, Kart, and Rayman still keep us all mighty entertained the majority of the time (we still play other wii games quite a bit too). Scribblenauts has a new lease on life with my daughter, sucks without 2nd handheld screen for a 7 year old, but astounding with one.

If you are on the fence, tellin ya can't go wrong with the Wii U. May not be the "OMG specs" everyone was hoping for (which are comparable anyway), but blows the others out of the water in terms of family content and accessibility for younger gamers.

I enjoyed the Evolve alpha, of course I believed there was still much to be done and forgave much. Yyou couldn't pay me to buy it right now as it is, and they got a crazy insane high price.

But it's selling decent it seems least on Steam. Too bad people don't think or research a bit before they buy...

There are lots of ways people in power use tragedy (even if it's false, created, or perceived tragedy) for political gain - ask Obama, he's the best at it.

By that logic he would be there already then, kind of a self defeating argument.

As I already stated (you're getting as bad as beamer):

Sure there's a few on that list that may not belong there depending on who you ask, but they certainly have nothing to gain. Politically (and geographically) speaking, I'd say they have more to lose. Way louder is that American "leaders" should have showed up and they didn't.

Which renders your followup null before you even stated it. There's nothing to gain, he would have only fulfilled a justified expectation. The majority know his presence would mean virtually nothing, but his absence means quite a bit.

You'll note that no one from the Americas was there, either.

Considering some of the names on there (turkey...) and their track record on press freedom that may have been a conscious decision. For EU leaders it was no option to stay away (especially not for UK/Germany) since France is close enough and has nearly the same problems as all the other big nations in the EU.

Anyway, I think on that list are more leaders that are against press freedom than there are for it... pretty fucking sad that they to use such a tragedy for their political gain.

Sure there's a few on that list that may not belong there depending on who you ask, but they certainly have nothing to gain. Politically (and geographically) speaking, I'd say they have more to lose. Way louder is that American "leaders" should have showed up and they didn't.

Yet get a little closer you realise they have an agenda of control. Of making it about Islam. Or using Islam to push their own agendas, be it making money or just generally trying to domineer.

I feel like you could say that about a lot of religions, including my own.


What kind of comparison is that crap, Nin? You sound like InBlack a few posts prior, throwing all religions in a pot of shit.

Nin can you say your religion currently has thousands of people killing thousands of innocent people indiscriminately? Raping, kidnapping villages of women and children? Defecating and descecrating holy places and items held dear to other religions? Boldly posting beheading murder videos online and daring the world to fuck with them? Actively recruiting all the useless assholes of the world to do the same?

Ya, keep giving them excuses and apologies -- The shit people say is so fucking ridiculous and ignorant way too often these days...

You, InBlack, are part of the problem with bullshit statements like that. Typical liberal bullshit that I can't fucking stand.

Why is everyone that disagrees with you a liberal.
I mean, you called Cutter a liberal, and that guy has spewed so much hate against so many different ethnic groups. And now you're calling InBlack liberal.

Is this the ultimate insult to you? If someone doesn't like your favorite restaurant, are they liberal? If you like Nickelback and someone else prefers Tupac, are they liberal? If you watch The Big Bang Theory and someone else thinks it's nowhere near as good as Archer, are they liberal?

Is that just the go-to you use for anyone with a different opinion than yours?

How about you fucking read for once Beamer. I ignored you yesterday with your "law" comments that you kept misquoting because you can't ever fucking take responsibility for what you say, and now I point out that his view is typical liberal bullshit and you somehow come up with I called him a liberal. Its a liberal view, get the fuck with comprehension boy.

Whilst that's tragic what happened in Paris today, I really wish the politicians would just shut the fuck up. I physically feel nauseous and outrage when I see and hear these sociopathic, fascist hegemonists going on about freedom and yada yada yada when they - and what they really stand for - is most of the problem in the first fucking place. It's their policies that give rise to this reactionary extremism to begin with.

You want to get serious? Then let's get serious. No more half measures. Take off the gloves. Do what the Romans would have done, level a village somewhere over there everytime they pull some shit like this here. We need to be either all in or not at all on this bullshit. Those Muslims are killing the wrong people anyway. It's their leaders selling them out for a fast buck. If you have to riot and kill because someone pokes fun at your religion, than it's actually a cult and you may want to question being part of it. If God is so great, then why the fuck doesn't he handle it personally if he's so offended? Assholes.

Ahh... so the liberal canadian guy misses the America that doesn't take shit from anyone and helps those many countries affected by assholism? Well you got Obama and a liberal world at the moment, you'd think you would be happy when Obama "acts" and it goes no further than "We are disappointed and strongly condemn "fill in the blank".

Maybe China or Russia will help...

However... what does your rant have to do with the 1.5 billion pixel photo?

Do these guys have to detonate a dirty bomb before they wake up and start to acknowledge the problem? There seems to be a pretty thin line between moderate and extreme muslims, many scholars and authors have been threatened by muslims living in western & european countries.

Is there any reasoning with people who want the rest of the world to strictly adhere to one sided bronze age cultural standards? Is tolerance really working? Can these two disparate civilizations actually co-exist peacefully? I often wonder.

You got it right.
