I have GFE, a 970, a shield tablet and a shield tv. I played the witcher 3 almost primarily on the shield tv and had a good time doing it.. mostly. there were some quirks on how it connected to my pc that I figured out. It doesn't like it when you try to RDP into your pc for some reason, but I figured out I could just reboot and fix it.

I have to have GFE to stream to my shield devices. I just looked, and in task manager the most resource intensive program uses 44mb of ram. there were 10 or so processes, including the streaming servers for sending games to the remote devices.

I get that people think that this is a shady move, but in reality nvidia are correct. a lot of people dont even know who makes their gfx card, fewer update them regularly. the rub seems to be those people who dont value GFE, which you could reasonably not, but want up to date drivers. I bet there will be an ftp site you can get them from, they just wont broadcast.

It seems like a non deal IYAM.

I got this too. I really only do it because I feel like playing a free game for a brazillian hours without paying anything is wrong on some level. I got the compendium last year, but that 20 dollars is all they have ever gotten out of me. It is still kind of cheap of me, because its not a straight payment, but im ok with it.

meh. You know how you know that viruses exist and that you should be proactive? Same thing. If you have a credit card, you should kinda expect that it isnt secure. Just request a new number from your provider and move on.

Ill trade that for the convenience of using a plastic card to buy real things.

The last time this happened to me it was when I was in need of a male/male audio cable to hook an ipod nano up to a car aux input. They wanted 13 dollars for the cable. Ordered it instead from Amazon and had it shipped from China for a grand total of 1 dollar.

This is the root of the issue. Radio Shack is essentially a middle man. The internet is cutting out middle men. No need for an artist to pay a label or a chinese manufacturer to use a retailer. Radio Shack buys the same connector for a dollar too. It sucks because they are the only people that will sell you resistors or other small components locally, but it is the future.

In business, you have to compete. Price is the last place you want to try that. First you want to have a better product. They cant do that because you can buy direct. Second you have to have a better "offering", like ras pi classes mentioned below. something that says "it may be a bit more, but we are worth it". Third you have to be cheaper.

Radio Shack fails all three of these tests.

I'm not only a google voice user, but ive advocated for it to several people. The integration with hangouts seemed pretty obvious for a while, so im glad they finally pulled the trigger. Currently when I get a text, it dings on my gaming pc, my tablet, and my 2 phones 3 different ways.

I have a shield tablet and their native streaming doesn't work with my gtx 570. I did not realize this when I got the tablet. I do plan on getting an 800 series card, but ive been planning on that for a year now ;).

That said, nvidia's grid service is very cool. I was playing street fighter 4 streamed to the tablet from across the country. it looked great and was "unplayable", probably 600ms lag, but I played it anyway.

shitty games on a shitty spyware system fits

I thought the "Steam is spyware" angle died down 5 years ago.

As for shitty games, I haven't played all of the ones on this list, but original sin is good/fun and most of the others are insanely popular if they are already out.

If you know of a better digital distribution system, I would definitely like to know about it.

I never got into PI and I have a fundamental problem with mining, but every time I see a new update, I want to start up my sub again. I have a very old account that doesnt have nearly the skills that people think it should. When I look for a corp, they see my start date and start salivating, then I tell them my skills and they wander off disappointed.

Im not sure what I actually like about the game, the scope I guess, because after I resub, Im left wondering why I did and what I think im actually going to do.

I sometimes think i should go pirate and see how that suits me, but Im not evil...

If You don't like lifting and swiping, just up the sensitivity. Seems like an honest effort at making PC games living room friendly. I hope I get picked for the beta. The only thing I was thinking was that I may want to be able to kinda roll the right pad around in fps or 3ps based action games. To sort of balance direction between your thumb tip and first knuckle. This video didn't seem to show that exactly.

I use it successfully to share a drive on my windows 8 htpc which I access with my older macbook, 10.4 maybe, and my girlfriends newer mb pro.. whatever the latest version is. It seems to work pretty effortlessly, though she cant use time machine with it. I also have it mapped to my regular gaming pc running windows 8. I have heard that it takes a bit more work if you are using anything pre win 7, but I think that's expected if you are using xp, which is 10+ years old at this point.

just watched a 470/480 copilation and it seems like most of what that card added was physics stuff, lighting and overlay stuff and tesseslation, all of which are pretty ubiquitous in todays games. maybe we will see this sooner than we think.

Well that was sort of my point in an exaggerated way.
Sure you can use a Titan now for that one or 2 games out there on multiple monitors or super HD displays but does that justify the cost of the Titan? For most people it won't.
To see graphics like this in games the consoles will have to be able to do this as well, otherwise devs will not put the extra effort and work for PC gamers.
I did not look at the PS4-Xbox720 specs but I doubt they will be close to anything like a modern PC with a Titan video card or even a 680 GTX.

yep, i got ya. i think i heard that the ps4 will output 4k, but who knows what that will actually mean. the current consoles all say they do hd, but its not 60 fps awesome 1080. we all seem to be saying the same thing, its killer, but wheres the game.

now that i think back on all the nvidia demos, im not sure any of them translated into a game even years after.. i may have to go back and look some up. what is the best looking game out? crysis 3? not sure that looks like even a tech demo from 2 cards back.

By the time devs will take advantage of this tech we will have Titan3 on store shelves.
I wouldn't worry much about what that card costs today, unless you run 20 monitors you won't need a card like that for a while.

Im not sure about that. you can buy a 4k tv today, and this card supports that. I know its high end, but there are some 680 benchmarks for battlefield 3 that suggest 20 fps at 4k on ultra settings. i realize that's luxurious, but its not like there isnt a reason to get a titan now.

Pretty fancy. I'm not buying a thousand dollar video card to make this happen on my machine, but it is neat. Along the lines of the final fantasy movie at the time.

I doubt it will be used in any games for a while, but i wonder if it scales. If not, it cant be put into play for a few years.

count me among the slightly miffed. not that i want any kind of apology or compensation, just sucks to have put in an order the morning of the first day they were up and drive past a gamestop where i could have one today for 3 dollars more. 14 shipping vs 17 tax. the word is that all the preorders should ship within 3 bus. days, which means i should have it no later than friday next.

meh.

His opinion is pretty much the same as mine.

I would have already preordered this if it were available thru steam, or if it didnt require a bunch of drm bs, and or if it didnt appear like a milk you for all its worth sales platform rather than a great pc game.

As it it, i am taking the wait and see approach also. A lot of the videos make it look very cool, but there does seem to be a shady element to what is going on.
