Don't buy any Logitech surround headphones, even the older ones. They've made a change to their driver where you used to be able to select 7.1 speakers in the Windows audio setup, now you can only set Windows to stereo (all OS's, all of their headphone brands). My g430's had great 3D audio. I snagged a G633 as soon as it hit and that's the driver revision where they changed it all.

Now the only games that get the good 3D Audio are ones where you can set 5.1 or 7.1 speakers in the game's config, and those are rare. They've posted in the forums that this is how it's going to work going forward.

Don't count on it. Episode 1 was still being worked on up until the last minute. In the first screenings, Maul didn't split in half when he fell.

To be fair, that wasn't a case of not having the shot done in time, that was a decision made after those first screenings since some people thought Maul survived it.

I wont get into the eventual irony of that.

Everyone should run screaming to get their refunds...


First thing I see is the last few seconds of a scene involving him trying to line up a ramp in the hardest configuration possible. I rewind it a bit and hear him complaining about how you have to get it just perfect otherwise you have to waste time jumping out of the Batmobile to realign the ramp.

All you have to do is set the ramp on the other side, the one THE CAR'S ON, then you jump it easily. Please don't tell me publishers are sitting around watching videos like these thinking, "Our puzzles are still too difficult!".

Nice. Now with gsync / freesync you can keep vsync on for when the frames max out and not suffer as much latency when it happens.

Hope this takes of-.... oh, OH....! I see what you're trying to pull, Valve. Don't think you're off the hook.

Still waiting.

Game's always worked decently for me too. The one thing I have noticed is the AA now does a much better job. I'm guessing this has blurred the overall picture more, but it's not bad even if so to bother me.

The fact that SLI still isn't supported is pretty disappointing. The under the (not red) hood stuff that needed fixing must have been enormous, or they've just been sitting around counting their console dollars.

Lets face it, this is the date their bean counters gave them to get the game out to recoup the most sales before F4 is so close everyone completely forgets about it.

Bottom line: To play this expansion you have to pay for at least a one month sub. They'll let you roll a single level 60 character while subbed to jump directly into it with.

So if they finally just cracked splitting the ships into pieces "in engine", does that mean all the "gameplay" footage of them blowing up ships into pieces previously was all pre-rendered?

It wasn't in game footage, it was a mock up of how they wanted the explosions to play out using game assets.

The video posted here was a cut down version of a longer video where they discussed all that. I only know this because of a post from D.S. that lead me to the forums, and I saw a thread about people's reaction to the explosion vid (the long vid).

Is the Mad Max game any good? From reviewers I get the impression it was rather meh, but in forums I pretty much never hear any complaints. Never many glowing remarks either...


...maybe that's the very definition of 'meh'...

Well it also had a lot of things going for it. A cool trailer, an interesting setting and tied in directly with the live TV show that also got shelved.

One youtuber was talking about how the current vehicle pickup system keeps the battle flowing fluidly as opposed to players standing around spawn points waiting for a vehicle to spawn. I have to agree that it's a good thing for this game's case.

You're just a Cutter above the rest, I guess.

For the rest of us (who have souls) happy 10/21/15.

Check your emails too if you signed up for the Doom alpha. Got my "You're in!" email today for playing over the weekend.

I saw the movie in the theater years ago and HATED the gay Hutt. He does not fit at all. (The only English speaking Hutt? Great.)

Yeah there's some blunders in the 1'st and 2'nd season (the movie was intended to be a normal set of episodes originally). That guy being the worst. He shows up again briefly later, but it's not nearly as bad. There's a somewhat cheesy villain in a small run of episodes early in the series, and a Jar Jar episode here and there (he's not quite as bad as Ep1 though). You do get a lot of General Grievous early on at least.

CW's very much reaches being as good as Rebels.. some parts are way better, but only because Rebels is still a young show.

Everything being completely out of order turned me off the series when I tried watching it on Netflix. Maybe I'll try to pick up again and do things in a manner that makes sense.

It's well worth it. Just know that there's always a bunch of ok episodes near the beginning of every season (and those tend to be the ones most out of order), then the last 2/3'rds are huge improvements. This is true all the way through the show, unfortunately. But the good episodes.... 3'rd, 4'th and 5'th seasons are just awesome, and not for kids (at one point a clone trooper gets cut in half by a horizontal security door slamming shut while he's climbing up). 1 and 2 have their moments too, but they really caught their stride in 3'rd.

Also note their rendering gets better every season, and that too catches it's stride in 3'rd. They start matching the cinematography of the space fight scenes with the movies around there.

Rebels has it nailed, but there's a lot of tie-in's with CW's, so I would advise watching CW's before ever starting Rebels if you're up for it all.

I wonder if Rebels will feature any of the Interdictor cruisers from the SW games (and the novels IIRC)? So far the idea of a ship able to block hyperdrive has been missing from on-screen canon, and it makes it pretty easy for ships to jump blockades and such.

They actually showed exactly that in the S2 trailer. The one they showed looked straight out of the X-Wing and Tie Fighter series.

Also, CW's seasons 1-3 are almost *completely* out of order. Check out how it all starts, a 3'rd season episode, then a 2'nd, then the movie, then more 3'rd, etc.... They start to settle down from there.
