I don't know about Blues folks... but a bunch of us from a former MMO site, that got shut down, are going to Jade Quarry. I hear that there are also several DAoC guilds going there too.

While it probably won't be the top WvW server... it should be fairly competitive (if that is what you are looking for). The folks I hang with aren't super hard core about winning... they're just out for having fun. We ranked pretty high in the BWEs.

What? You don't think if he'd pull his head out of his ass, that he wouldn't think more clearly?

People did tell them so already, many times.

Too many times. Sigh. All for a shiny that didn't even last that long to entertain.

...And for all the fuckin' dumbasses that bought it (beacuse it was shiny)... thanks for helping legitimize always online DRM. Angry

What a horrid fucking trailer.

All it did was make me want to stay away from the game even more.

I really like that you can attach mines to rats. However, the ability to pause time still looks incredibly overpowered.

Difficulty in a game has never been a criteria for me... other than overly difficult = way too frustrating and probably either no sale, or I'll use cheats.

So, as long as the game is fun, I don't mind overpowered options. The beauty is you don't have to use them. I've played many o' game where my second run through was "stealth only", "non-lethal only (or mostly)", or some other challenging and entertaining way to play though again.

Given that the vast majority of iOS games fail miserably (Mark Rein himself said the average title without publisher backing grosses $700), you are not at all guaranteed to be profitable.

There's a few reasons for that.
1. There's a bazillion shitty games to sift through to find the good ones.
2. Most of them have shitty controls, so it's tough to judge whether a game is actually good or not.
3. Review sites (that have gameplay videos) mostly don't show a game being played in hand... they show the full screen. They need to show both. I find myself going to youtube looking to see how it plays / controls in hand. Out of hundreds of games reviewed on just one review site alone, I found 10 potentials... that I still have to do further research on before I'd consider buying.

I guess I need to clarify why my interest in Bioshock is practically non-existent.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEBwKO4RFOU

Does constantly saving / escorting / interacting with that girl seem fun to you?
And the whining that she does, OMG, that would grate on my nerves.

You are not a hero... you are a babysitter with guns.

I have way more interest in Dishonored than Bioshock Infinite.

Something about constantly having to save/escort that girl seems utterly annoying.

Well, easy is subjective, but I'm still using the old desktop environment on 8. There's several tutorials out there telling you how to do it.

Just so you are aware... the RTM version kills some of those workarounds, just like the consumer preview killed the ones from the developer's build.

You pretty much will have to replace the explorer shell.

If you want a cheap version of Adobe products, have a college student buy a copy for you.

That said... I don't care about this one way or another. I'd probably be more likely to buy from Steam than MS's App store... mainly because I hate metro and metro apps.

I prefer front bumper cam for racing, myself.
Hood camera if there's no bumper cam choice.

But for messing around, I do like to have a cockpit view option.

That said... I was just delivering the message... not making judgment on the game for the lack of a potential basic feature.

Well, that's a just a damn shame. A F2P Star Trek browser MMO, I'm sure people would have been flocking, just FLOCKING, to it!

Are publishers finally getting smart enough to not throw out bad money? I think that's the bigger story here.

All they did was attempt to do what they feel their OEMs have failed to do (and I think anyone that's played much with 99% of the Android tablets would agree that HTC and Samsung have mostly failed to compete with the iPad.)

Because if experienced OEMs like Samsung and HTC can't do it, then by golly, Microsoft surely can? Because MS's track record with hardware is phenomenal.

Oh, wait...

It's actually kind of funny to see Microsoft try to become Apple, when that has never been their forte, and unless they dramatically restructure the company (and hire people with the know-how to get it done), it will never happen. They will just keep floundering with one failed product after another, while at the same time absolutely ignoring what their actual CUSTOMERS are telling them. It's a small sample size, and probably confirmation-biased, but I know around 30 or 40 guys in different IT departments in Tulsa, OKC, Houston, Denver and a few other places, and so far not a single one has said that their IT department has ANY plans to upgrade to Windows 8 within ANY kind of timeframe.

Yet MS bullishly continues with Win8 the way it is, because after all, WE MUST COMPETE WITH TEH IPAD!!1!1!

Balmer couldn't run a fucking lemonade stand. Within two years he'd have the kids growing oranges, because dammit, WE MUST COMPETE WITH MINUTE MAID!

Why they ever handed him the keys to one of the world's largest companies (at the time) is beyond understanding.

Creston

Agreed. Windows Tablets / Windows 8 will probably be as successful as Zune.

Nokia is still bleeding money after doing Windows phones, an it's not looking like it will improve much.

Once again... Microsoft is too late to the game.

A quick Google shows that the Optiplex you linked has a 305W PSU and no room for a dual-slot card or anything passively cooled. And 2GB of RAM doesn't leave much room for anything other than Windows 7.

Sometimes I think you like to argue for the sake of arguing.

305 Watts is plenty for a 75 Watt GPU.

Windows 7 can run on 512MB... granted, swapping to disk with basically opening 1 decent sized app. Vista couldn't. 2GB, while not ideal, will run most games just fine. Most of the OS will swap to disk. It is the games with the memory leaks that will be an issue.

Again... the point was a system, without integrated graphics, that could play games decently, AT A CONSOLE'S PRICE.

It definitely wasn't a recommendation. It was a proof of concept.

One can find a $200 machine (it doesn't have to be the one that I quickly found), and slap a modern graphics card in it that doesn't require external power connections, and play games decently. One would be better off spending around $500, but that's not console price.

2GB RAM, 80GB HDD, and more likely than not a PSU built to power exactly the components it includes and would not be able to run that GPU.

The point was that it was an entry gaming system. Just like a console, where you buy extra controllers and such, eventually you would need to beef up the weaknesses of the PC listed. 4GB of ram is pretty cheap, and so is a bigger hard drive.

As for the PSU, there's probably plenty of room for that GPU. We have budget GPUs in similar Optiplex models at work, driving 2 to 3 monitors. The cards were added in later... not bought with the systems.

Heck... even a beefier base $400 - $500 system would be better than a console, IMO... but I was trying to keep it near average console cost. One really doesn't need a $2000 system anymore to decently play games on a PC.

Not the fastest thing in the world, but good enough for a budget machine, and would play most games at medium settings. Probably would need to get a bigger hard drive later on.
