Thanks. I do have an LCD with 2048x1152 resolution so I may just have to invest more and get something powerful. The technology race sometimes makes me wish I was a console gamer lol.

All those DX11 features makes me want to upgrade my video card. It's a Radeon 5850 but DX11 specific features are slow.

Can anyone suggest a fairly future-proof (~2 yrs) DX11 video card $200 or less?

News Comments > Frozen Synapse Demo and Sale
14. Re: Frozen Synapse Demo and Sale Aug 11, 2011, 16:37 Shok
 
I haven't tried multiplayer yet but playing the campaign off and on for a few weeks and I think I've done 20 or so missions out of (I believe) 50 total.

I like being able to save videos after the game ends. The youtube uploader built into the game didn't work well but the offline video save works fine.

Here are the ones I've uploaded so far on my youtube channel:

Another cool thing is that each map is procedurally generated so you can play the same map as long as you have the seed number.

I've bought a few of the Civ 5 DLC but only when it was on sale. I agree with the nickel and dime sentiment for most games but I think in this case Firaxis has released quite a few patches and are actively supporting the game. So I don't mind throwing them some cash for their work.

Luke,

You want to use their instead of there in this instance as it is the possessive pronoun.

To be fair, they remade all the vanilla zones to enable players to fly in them. And remade a lot of starter quests, etc. So maybe their focus should have been on more higher end content. Instead I think they just decided to have less high end content but make it hard as hell.

Controlling all your player data does have it's advantages to curb the hex editing haxors but they could at least give us an option to have an "offline only" character.

Oh well, there are always indie PC games that can take my money.

Thanks nin. I don't usually pre-order but the rock paper shotgun preview sold me and $34 isn't bad for a new AAA game.

That's an interesting article on the dwarf fortress devs. Kind of sad that he has basically given up on romantic relationships though. And his diet sounds pretty destructive but at 33 I guess he won't have issues for a few more years.

I haven't played DF yet but I'm pretty hooked on Terraria at the moment so probably won't be trying it anytime soon.

A father of two, Ardolf had turned down a 2-year plea agreement last year to charges related to the Biden e-mail. After that, the authorities piled on more charges, including identity theft and two kiddie-porn accusations carrying lifetime sex-offender registration requirements. He pleaded guilty to them all last year.

From 2 year plea to 18 years what a stupid decision to turn down that plea agreement!

Go to gmail, create JoeSmith4455212@gmail.com, register on facebook as Joe Smith from Kalamazoo, and your problem is solved. You now have a facebook account with 0 valid personal information.

Yeah I did that a long time ago using a fake name and I got a bunch of requests from people thinking it was someone they knew. I think no matter what fake name you come up with there will be some long lost schoolmate or something asking you if you know them...

Hopefully, the lawyers will be happy with that...

Edit: nevermind I bought it
