I'll wait for those who are in favor of banning stuff because of feels, agree that SRS, SRD, circlebroke, circlejerk, etc, should be banned first. I believe old age will kick in, even though there's plenty of evidence of users and mods in those subs doxing, harassing, and engaging in behavior that would get any other sub banned.

I don't remember the exact numbers. But it's around 30 the eye's see at. 60 being a more stable number(and game target)

Yeah nasa already did that, and it's above 240fps, if I remember the study right, fighter pilots see around 480-520fps. Even the jump from 60fps to 120fps is noticeable. The only people who think that 30fps is a good thing to see at, are people with one eye and those with no depth perception.

Didn't look like trolling to me as this isn't a fanboard, but a place where discussion can (hopefully) be evenhanded. SC certainly deserves criticism as it's gotten ridiculous amounts of money, and changes what it's designs are during the course of production. I was interested in it myself when it was first coming out as a new Wing Commander...Now it's a huge glop of things and there's no visible end to the tunnel.

SC has been in development for 2 years 7 months. ESO took 7 years, KoToR 5 years, there isn't actually a game on SC's scale that's taken less then 5 years in development time.

Can you name an MMO that after three years only had the early workings of an FPS no one asked for, a small space for you to fly a few ships around in, and no sign of any persistent world? I can name a few that didn't have a persistent world to show after 3 years, some even longer, and none of them ended up being that great, or have yet to even release.

ESO.

Anyone tried the alternative movement for Geralt yet? I haven't but I'm excited about this and hope it fixes that twitch moment he has.

And that's some list of fixes, just love these guys and how they take care of us.

Nope, I've uninstalled my copy. I'm two play-throughs done at the moment and don't want to burn myself out when the expansion launches in the fall. But I'd like to hear opinions on it myself.

Investing in ANY GPU right now would be a waste of money with the node shrink finally coming in the next models at both Nvidia and AMD... Just saying...

Not really true, it means if you pay attention you can get some GPU's on the dirt cheap side of things. That's how I picked my 7950 for $200(along with the pre-opened discount) the retail price was still $372 here in Canada at the time.

Good to hear. Have you noticed if the aspect ratio controls work for games? It's really convenient for playing older games, but it seems to break every time I install new drivers. I end up having to boot into safe mode and use a driver uninstaller to strip every last remnant of the old drivers before the new ones will install properly.

Haven't gotten around to playing any older games yet to see if anything is messed up or not.

Well for anyone looking performance wise on this, the drivers are excellent, solid, and stable on my 7950 on Win10. It also seems to have fixed the annoying screenflicker/refresh problem that's been in the last couple of win10 builds.

Temperature management seems to be a hell of a lot better compared to the previous WHQL and beta drivers as well, only playing metro:LL but seemed to have picked up 3-5fps in that over the previous beta drivers.

Agreed. Take note folks, this is what happens when you let the 'fresh new hip kid' that just graduated into PR.

Faster boot time is about the only one you can actually quantify without a "trust me" from Microsoft so his response is about as meaningful as yours.

Really? I guess these papers don't count.

There is really nothing about 8/8.1 (UI replacement or not) that is an improvement over 7. Especially the half-in half-out metro UI shit like your network connections and such.

As someone who works with both operating systems on a daily basis... you all really have no idea what you are talking about. Anecdotal nonsense rules the day around here.

So no lower overhead? Faster boot times, better kernel optimization? Well guys pack it in, all that anecdotal evidence in the quote just packs it in.

Damn. Troll much?

It's his specialty!

For anyone who slapped a UI replacement on Win8 already knows that it's superior to 7, and 10 is a hell of a lot better than 8 is or 7, there are problems at least in the 10 beta though. For anyone who uses ITH or any other program that directly hooks into another for pulling text, there's a serious memory access share problem. So stuff like that is going to have to be fixed.

After seeing the previews and the highly dumbed down interface with useless choice options I'm very wary of this one.

Bridge the gap between BG and BG2? What? That's all of like... one-two levels?

I thought these guys were going to attempt to make BG3 at some point?

Going by the books, it's a period of 6-18 months. Going by the games themselves pretty sure it's a period of 6-12 months, so there's plenty of time to write something up.

This has been a problem for me with all the 35x series drivers and NOW are fixing it almost 2 to months later....I am kinda annoyed at this point.

More like it's been an on-going problem since the 320 drivers, just varying degrees of TDR problems for most.

Illegal where? These guys are from Belarus. A country with a 'legally' elected strongman dictator and a close ally of Vladimir Putin.

Illegal where? Pretty much everywhere in the world that has contract law. If you think that them being in another country doesn't stop you from taking them to court in your home country, you've missed the last ~18 years of legal changes.

Anyone else find it really, and I mean really fucking stupid that the target of that resistance fighter squad was a FUCKING STATUE???

No. Icons and the destruction of icons are an important part of any resistance movement. It also indicates that said resistance has the ability to strike targets, sometimes symbolic is as important as anything else.

Two kills from overwatch? Damn, someone got lucky!

I'll bet that they've adjusted hit rates since the last game, since one of the big things that a lot of people complained about was the RNG being really messy. Though the random seed option fixed a lot of it for those that like to save scum.

It's a good day when there are more comments about Deus Ex than GG.

That's because GG is pretty much done what it needs to do. The only enemies it has left are anti-gg professional victims and e-celebs, who continue to make giant asses of themselves and drive more people to us, or they get exposed for the slime that they are. The vast majority of sites(even gameranx) who were said lulz-ethitcs have disclosure and ethical guidelines now. Sites that don't, continue to either see advertising revenue drop, or site traffic to drop.

The only big thing sitting in GG in terms of 'shit to do' is the SPJ(society for professional journalists) airplay event. And even the most die-hard anti-GG supporters refuse to go on air to back up the bullshit they've been saying for 9 months.
