Yup, i'm already sick of the look of these games. Accelerated graphics were invented for a reason.

The funny thing is, when the first few came out, I was all "This is a cool, fun, little thing", as I've never been a graphics whore. I'll still play old games via emulators and stuff. But now, because those games became popular, it's just become this crutch for people to not actually take the effort to make their games look like they come from this decade.

I swear, there are so many "throwback graphics" games at this point, that it's going to eventually be a throwback when you actually have modern looking graphics.

the titan series of cards are geared more for the content creators, the graphic artist, or the power needed for graphical rendering. It is really not marketed nor designed as the ultimate gaming/gamer card, never has been.


Yeah, the Titan is a halfway point between GeForce and Quadro/Tesla.

I had thought it might be something like that. Thanks.

Also, to those who brought up I was looking at benchmark for the old TitanX... I know. That's why I compared to the 980ti, not the 1080.

Can someone actually explain the Titan to me? I don't get it.

According to videocardbenchmark, the TitanX has a lower G3D Mark score than the 980ti, but is over 3x the cost.

I want to back the System Shock kickstarter... but I have a weird feeling about it. Not sure why. Plus they've been vague about which engine actual development will use and we're less than a week out without any actual update on their plans for the VR portion of the game.

From what I read on this demo, it's basically the same thing without the goggles. hehe.

Seems very likely. When this shit goes tits up, CIG will be blameless. It'll be the "haters" and Derek Smart and evil outside forces that "wanted the game to fail" who destroyed it.

Which is idiotic, since the original stretch goal to have a persistent universe, with 100 systems, a single player campaign, full voice acting w/ stars, a tablet companion app, and a full orchestral score was $6 million. The game has made almost $120 million, so about 20x that amount.

That, and considering the Kickstarter campaign specifically mentions that they had investors willing to put in the rest of the money for development, but the campaign was to show that there was enough interest for a PC space simulator, this game should have had more than enough money to finish based on their own estimates.

But you're right. It will be "blame the haters" from the fanatics.

I'm talking about the actual guys running CSGOLotto, not Valve. The owner is a huge streamer who basically advertised CSGOLotto like it was a site he found where he "gambled" his stuff, but in actuality owned the site, and never disclosed it on said streams.

Sleazy yes, illegal nope.

Considering they promoted the product, that they owned, never stated they owned it, and even made it seem like they just stumbled on the site, the FTC might argue that.

Man, I love legalese letters where they try and doublespeak their way out of getting caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

i understand that. i said "vaguely similar" because while guns are available in both worlds they are a rarity; in dune because of technological advancement, in technomancer due to stagnation, but the result is the same with an emphasis on hand to hand combat and supplemental techniques and technologies. i didn't think anyone wanted a treatise about dune in a thread about a video game. whoops.

I misunderstood and thought you were saying it was because of stagnation in Dune, so the Dune-obsessive in me had to clarify. :p

vaguely similar to Dune, which also didn't have guns. i believe it's a technology stagnation/availability thing. in the game the world has been on the decline for centuries since some big catastrophe and technologies aren't able to be replaced as they fail. it's a pretty depressing world honestly.

There are guns in Dune. Projectile weapons were used by the houses, but generally became obsolete , since people employed Holtzman shields, which would stop normal projectiles.

They also use lasguns, but those are not used as often because of the lasgun-shield effect, which causes a massive nuclear explosion.

Vehicles tend to have some sort of projectile weaponry, along with rocket launchers.

Was thinking of picking up Skyrim again and finishing it. Anyone have a GOOD recommended list of mods to use. I've installed the unofficial legendary patch, the high res patch and the SkyUI (and SKSE, obviously). Which I know I was using last time I played, but wasn't sure if there were any other good stuff that's like near necessity.

Man the XP to gain games would be cool... except for the fact that I already own Spelunky and Dreamfall Chapters on Steam. Only getting Gabriel Knight is a let down, especially since I can just that game for $5.00 on sale. (I still have to play that remake, GK is probably my favorite adventure game... though not having Tim Curry's voice is a bit of a let down.)

Are you kidding me?? Are they really trying to sell what amounts to a glorified Temple Run for (without the current discount) $19.99 - $39.99, depending on version, with in-app purchases, AND a $15.00 season pass??

After finally finishing Doom and watching the credits, I'm thoroughly surprised that Samuel Hayden wasn't actually voiced by Peter Cullen OR Lance Henriksen. That voice actor could probably substitute for either in a voiceover scenario. (Like say an Aliens game with Bishop.)

I was hoping for save game compatibility with the original, since I never finished it, but had a great time playing it and was recently thinking of going back to it. But, I'm reading on the steam forums that blueprint locations changed, so I'm guessing that there's going to be some underlying incompatibilities to prevent that.
