News Comments > The Bard's Tale IV Kickstarter Next Month
8. Re: The Bard's Tale IV Kickstarter Next Month May 18, 2015, 16:48 Shok
 
I have lots of nostalgia for this series, especially the first two. I actually bought it for C64 when it came out back in 1985, when I was 15. The mapping was a chore and the difficulty was rough but it was still a blast.

I'm not sure how they would recapture that but I'm interested. Maybe they'll get Michael Cranford to help. He was the major producer and coder of the first two games.

Looks like Battle.net is being DDOS'd. Blizzard tweeted that it banned a bunch of WoW accounts for botting so I assume this is the kiddies way of getting them back...

Hopefully it's the dipshits that decided buying utorrent and turning it into the worst ad-infested crapware since realplayer was a good idea.

News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V Maxed Settings Video
38. Re: Grand Theft Auto V Maxed Settings Video Apr 20, 2015, 17:51 Shok
 
I finally pulled the trigger on a new PC build. I haven't built a PC in 5 years so couldn't just upgrade the video card since my mobo only supported PCI 2.0. I ended up using my old case and SSD's I had. In the end the mobo, CPU, memory, PSU, and video card (GTX970) ended up costing just under $500 with rebates. I'm interested in seeing just how CPU limited games are with the P3258 CPU. (It was free in the newegg combo deal.) Also, GTAV is definitely playable with Intel onboard video of the Z97/P3258. My 970 comes Wednesday though

Not a grey hair on Chewy. Who knew wookies don't age as fast as hoomans??

Seriously though, that was a better trailer than the first one with its cross shaped lightsaber silliness.

Looks like it was my virus scanner (Webroot). Once I turned off the realtime protection it let me download the 354mb patch.

Thanks Quinn from the huge other GTA5 thread! I never had an issue with this antivirus before but should have known to troubleshoot that...

EDIT: Reminder to self, never buy a game that depends on updates from the Rockstar Social Club again ever! WTF?

You mean the $30 version

Nope, I bought it from Rockstar legit before it was delayed to April. I got L.A. Noire for the pre-order bonus, which they charged like $9 to my credit card when I ordered and the remaining, $50.99, was charged last week for GTA5.

So when I first ran GTA5 after it unlocked @7EST it errored out and I sent a bug report off. Then I updated the drivers to 350.12, rebooted and now when I try to start it I see it in task manager briefly but it never starts. This is the Rockstar version btw not STEAM...

Yeah, I believe you can sign up for standalone for $15/mo for now but have to have an Apple device. I read that the slingtv also has hbo but it's $25 for the slingtv service and then $15 for hbo now on top of that.

Guessing in the news this week:

Either HBO gets hammered tonight when everyone tries to watch GoT at the same time. (Actually the exclusivity thing with iDevices might mitigate this quite a bit.)

...or some twits DDOS the HBO streaming service.

Fiddlesticks, it only takes about 50 years to determine a radiation producing device isn't safe for consumers.

Apparently the first 4 episodes of Thrones are already "out there", as of last night. I bet HBO is fuming right now...

Wow, that sucks. I would have signed up for $15/mo HBO GO if it wasn't Apple exclusive. I don't own anything with an i prefix and never plan to.

Ultima IV Remastered v2.1 is now available for the C64

I've still got Ultima IV in the original box with manual. This remastered version has me itching to dig it all out and play it again on an emulator. I still have my original C64 and 1541 but don't want to mess with getting it to work with an LCD monitor.

Damn you Wallshadows! *shakes fist* It worked that time and I even have 23k left on my account as well lol. Now if I can only restrain myself to keep from falling into the WoW 2nd job & burnout cycle...doubt it but it was only 20k so meh.

The way they worded the email was a bit worrisome for anyone security conscious as it sounded like someone hacked my account and redeemed something:

Greetings Shok,
You've successfully redeemed a code for The Elder Scrolls® Online: Tamriel Unlimited™. We're applying it to your account now! Your receipt and further details can be found below.

I just tried to reactivate and the price was 20883. I thought I had enough gold in my account for 30k but must have spent it on garrison crap before I went on my WoW hiatus last month. Oh well, got to make time for GTAV next week anyway.

Sadly, I could totally see Disney doing that X-wings animated kids movie. Very well done - it truly looked like a Pixar Cars/Planes type movie.

GMG emailed my POE key today and it's pre-loaded in STEAM already. I would have bought it through GoG but it was only $33 on GMG yesterday so I pulled the trigger...
