CoD's numbers will never hit that. Unless they charge $120 for games out of the gate instead of counting the season pass as a 2nd purchase after the fact. Which I am sure they are already talking about.

GTA5 is now the largeset entertainment item in history for opening day, first 24 hours, and quickest to 1Billion.

Awesome. They deserve it.

They already do, just like Battlefield Premium you can pre-purchase DLC for Call of Duty for an extra $50

Hope you didn't go too small on your SSD, so many people only think of it as necessary for a boot drive but having extra space for games and not needing to shuffle them back and forth to a mechanical is worth the extra expense. I wouldn't go smaller than 250 - which has a formatted capacity of 233. 60 gig partition for OS and main programs and the rest for games and data, that way you can image your OS partition using (Active@, Acronis, AOMEI) to a mechanical for easy restore.

I didn't see any deep discounts on last gen hardware, the heat issue is just for people trying to do extreme overclocks which I think people are spoiled with anyway. 3.5 to 4.2 ghz, safe and effortless yet people cry when they can't get to 5 ghz? I also took into account the improvements in UEFI bios designs, more SATA 6 ports and USB 3.0 ports and see there's plenty of reasons to pass over last gen as an upgrade platform.

Too bad you were under pressure to get your parts so suddenly, deal hunting seems to be part of the challenge in putting together a new system these days. You can't just take price into account but when you come across a good deal on a thoroughly researched part it's like sweet, sweet victory.

Curses to Microcenter and their stupid cheap prices on motherboards and cpu combo's, they must have some sort of agreement not to sell at those prices online or risk being dropped from distributors. $279 for a 4770k, really?

r200 series

some of these new cards are just renamed versions of existing cards, only the new $500+ cards seem to be actual new hardware.

I'm most interested in seeing if they have new cooler solutions, I don't like the idea of having almost all of the hot air dumped in the case.

every day is seems like ATI cards drop another $20, lots of deals on 7950's and 7970's.

announcement is next week, 25th but they won't be released till some time in October.

Keep dreaming dude. The days of AAA game publishers allowing map editors to be including with their products are over

Agreed. Publishers remain fiercely defensive of their DLC content sales despite the numerous examples of freely available content enhancing post-launch revenue. I was hoping the Far Cry 3 MP would catch on since they actually included one but sadly it was a dud with players. I doubt we will ever see a map editor in a BF game again, if that is the sole concern then might as well write off the entire franchise now. Just like CoD they will pare down features to the bare minimum so that it can repackaged every year or two.

Far Cry failed mostly because of no dedicated servers and no host migration.

I can think of one legit reason they won't release a map editor, they don't want people making maps that would shed a negative light on the game (no columbine, boston marathon, denver theater maps).

I suppose if you could open the maps in the editor it would be even easier to find exploits and glitches to exploit and areas to glitch into.

They're not going to release any public server files, mod tools etc. but if that's enough for you to boycott the game then keep fighting the good fight.

With the ongoing trend of iMircrosoft trying too hard to be Apple it's only a mater of time before they completely shutout developers from releasing programs for Windows unless it passes through their paywall site. The Windows 8 app store hasn't turned into a problem for Valve... yet.

I can't even imagine how much money they've spent developing this game, played the PvE for a little bit and then uninstalled.

Everyone complains that there's nothing but recycled modern military shooters but I think they went off the deep end in terms of the design for this game.

They should make PvE defend and destroy classic from Tribes, I loved playing that mode.

All these space shooters in the works and not a peep about the greatest of them all: Tie Fighter (followed closely by X-Wing of course.)

Where's my fucking Tie Fighter sequel Disney? It's a cash cow in the waiting.

There's a new Star Wars game being mentioned called Attack Squadron, Disney registered a bunch of URLs with that name.

They changed the lens flare from blue to orange, so many assets remain untouched from BF3 that many people are going to be calling foul on the #4 designation.

I wonder what the pre-order numbers look like, are they sweating any bullets yet?

Battlefield 4 + Premium for 25% off aint too shabby..

Doesn't work, but I suspect they'll do a promo sales drive before the game is released there's too much at stake not to try to grab those call of duty dollars.

Going to be creating new accounts for major game purchases, what do you think is a fair price to charge for renting a game for a few days?

Oh man, I didn't even think about that. All you need for Steam is an email these days, don't even need the CC anymore due to Wallet cards being sold at retail. I suspect they would get pissed at a bunch of account creations from a single IP though.

They probably put in place limits on the ability to "revoke" those friends you've shared with, still the multi account setup would get around the part about all your games being locked down to just one person. Most people put too much emphasis on their Steam achievements and friends lists etc to want to go through the hassle.

I have multiple accounts on Steam, I don't see why they would have any issue with that.

I assume you put the timing values for your ram manually into your bios,

Didn't DDR3 make timing values basically irrelevant?

No, some systems can auto detect the values with XMP turned on in bios but many still don't set the voltage high enough.

Recommended Windows 8? Rotfl


It doesn't take much to turn Windows 8 into Windows 7.1, install startisback for $3 you can boot to desktop, get your start menu back, and turn off all the metro access stuff that annoys everyone. No you shouldn't have to do any of these things but at least you can. There are some nice features that 8 brings for desktop users.

I think it's just to show that it's supported, I think they had a limit on only supporting Windows 7 for the closed beta which people mistakenly took as no support for Windows 8 for the game.

I assume you put the timing values for your ram manually into your bios, if not that's what I'd check first. Might also want to try bumping up the voltage a tad and see if that helps.

sometimes it's the simple stuff that causes the most grief.

"From the makers of Aliens Colonial Marines..."

At least this way the game should be around for a long time, most of these free-2-play attempts shutdown after a year.
