tl;dr - they aren't ahead but they aren't lagging behind either

How can you say that in response to the simple fact he stated? AMD released the 7970 in January, ... trouble.

You said it better than I could. I fully expect a $600 Titan, a $500-$550 780ti, a $400-$450 780, and a $300 770, within a month.

We can always dream, the 780ti is going to be $650 and the regular 780 will probably see a $40 to $50 price drop. The titan isn't a consumer targeted card so I wouldn't expect to see it drop in price.

It might be awhile before any of this happens because Nvidia rolled out their holiday game bundle for the GTX line and seems to think 3 games and offering a $100 off coupon for a Shield is enough added value to keep the prices where they're at through November.

I was really hoping the 290x would be a return to the days of 9700/9800 awesomeness but I see this as a let down.

If you just look at benchmark results and the price it seems like it's a huge win for AMD but if you look closer the card is loud, power hungry, hot and worst of all throttles the gpu core clock speed almost as soon as you start gaming.

You could point to the rather poorly implemented blower cooler and say that aftermarket coolers will solve the problem but the way Powerboost 2 works off of GPU temperatures you could still see the throttling problem persist. You'll only be trading off a loud blower cooler for louder system cooling fans to exchange the hot 95C air that's now inside your case.

The only way you can get around the issue is to either run the card's cooling fans at obnoxious sounding speeds or reduce the performance level to match the ineffectiveness of the on-board cooler.

The headache for PC sales is that you no longer feel the need to upgrade but every three years or so.

Just playing catch up on this, that ending was farking HILARIOUS.

If I were a developer I'd be tempted to put a fake ending in my game just like that, and when you clicked to continue the game would progress normally.

any comments from the developers on this one? were they all just "eff it, I'm sick of making this game".

This game definitely needs to be sampled with a beta or demo, only thing they've showed looked extremely linear and I just can't see Source engine handling any kind of expansive maps unless they've done some major changes to it.

Knowing EA though it's probably a beta you only get to play if you preorder the game.

This trailer is annoying in that it's All Space Battlez All The TIME! There's a lot more to X than that.

It's still the best way to sell the game, I doubt (hope) that musik isn't in the game as well.

It's all part of the master plan, now people will feel compelled to play it just to see how bad it really is.

That part about the kickstarter was pretty sad.

AMD sure has milked the release of their new graphics card to the hilt, people may show up with pitchforks at their HQ if they price it at $700

This pretty much sums it up, thankfully there's plenty of start menu replacements so you can completely ignore metro apps.

Metro 8.1

yay!

People are too stupid to see their ability to install any program from any source slipping away from them, once people become indoctrinated into using the MS app store and switching to only "Modern UI apps" the desktop is going to fade off into a distant memory, or become completely locked down too - for user convenience sake.

I think part of the problem is that when you play a closed beta of one of their games everyone is on their best behavior as to not be a trouble maker and get kicked out. When you have the general public play the game they find all the dirty exploits and glitches and use them to full effect, DICE acts all surprised when this happens - but it happens every time.

If you're not a fan of Battlefield games then 4 isn't going to persuade you to change your mind.

last I read on this was that it ran at a solid 30 frames per second locked regardless of what platform you played on. The concept looked cool enough but can they really make the game that people imagined it would be?

They probably took a look at GTA V and said "oh shit, we don't have a compelling open world game after all", especially if you look at all the crazy stuff R* put into their game.

Hrm, I guess I'll try this at some point, but what's the catch? Is this just a marketing tool for their engine, or are there some sort of microtransactions hidden in there somewhere?


It appears to be a 4 person co-op shooter against progressively harder AI bots where you slooooowly grind out in game currency to spend on things to unlock, I imagine they're hoping you get addicted to the gameplay and frustrated with the slow progression so you spend real money on equipping yourself.

I'm really concerned about the eye strain impact of the Rift, I have a feeling that it would be really hard to put down once you started using it and there's no such thing as moderation when it comes to gaming.
