The 8800's are DX10 capable but performance is at best mediocre and piss-poor/unplayable at worst.

They're amazing DX9 cards though.

That said if you are going to build an entirely new rig soon.. it might be worth waiting a bit and getting a card from the new series just to have that much longer before you have to upgrade yet again.

Yeah, I think I might do that. What with all the good looking 360 games on the horizon, it wont be such a bad wait.
I wonder what those newer cards will cost when they're released?

Bah.  I've seriously got so many games sitting here and staring at me, waiting for me to play them.  Yet I keep buying more for some reason.  I don't know the meaning of this word "drought" but I'd like to experience it.  Yesterday I saw Lego Star Wars II for the 360 for $20.  Did I resist?  I THINK NOT!

I'm seriously considering not buying Bioshock for a couple months just to clear some stuff out.

Yeah, riiiiight,,,,,,,,,,... slywink

Thanks, will have a look.

Wow, not sure I need a 24inch screen....but then again, I've been playing on my old 19inch viewsonic for so long....thinking higher than 20-21inches seems excessive..

I've been hearing(reading)that people are saying hold off on getting a graphics card now unitl the 9xx series comes out this christmas...are the 8800 series already being phased out? Wont they play DX-10 games?

Ok, looks like I might be in for a bit of a windfall of cash. I seriously need to get a new PC..
I want the whole deal......Monitor,speakers,keyboard, mouse...etc, etc...

I have been out of the PC upgrade loop for so long now, I have no idea what the serious gamer geeks are getting in their rigs lately..

If I said I had $2000 - 2500 to spend, what would you suggest I get?

Thanks.

Played a little further last night but nothing to really report then what has already been said.  One thing you can do in the game is save anywhere, don't know if that has been known or not.  If anyone has any questions please ask and I'll try to get the answer.  Won't be able to play again until this evening.

Oh man, now that is good news for me. I love save anywhere games...

I am in total blackout for this game and have been for a month or so. This is awesome, but I don't want to spoil a single thing about bringing the game home on release day. I have one favor to ask. Will someone with a good PC please download the demo when it comes out (this Friday if the rumors are right), and compare it to the 360 demo to help me make my purchasing choice? I may double dip on this game, but want someone to let me know what they think the best option is all things considered!

You related to Trump? Two copies of the same game? Yep, you nutcases are friggin hard-core.... eek

My jaw dropped after the movie screen went down on the bathesphere and the entire city of Rapture was displayed before you.  Awesome, awesome intro.

Although I shut it off right after I docked.  Already scared the piss out of me.

Is it really a scary game?  One of the attributes that would keep me from playing would be scares and creepy events.  There was a time when I was a horror movie fan, but I've more or less grown out of enjoying being scared, whether it be by games or by movies, and I'm not at all interested in a game that will scare me or creep me out in my own house.  I was only able to play a small portion of Fatal Frame on the PS2 before I couldn't take any more, and I managed to play just a few minutes of the Condemned demo before I had to turn it off because it creeped the hell out of me. 

If Bioshock is anything like that, I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass on this one. 

I know exactly what you mean. I don't like a creepy setting that doesn't let up in its intensity. I've avoided numerous games over the years because of that.

The demo didn't creep me out much, but if the whole game is the same setting with the same intensity, I don't think I would like it much...
I would like games like this more if the pacing was better...You know, into the shite for a level then out of it for another level...etc...
Maybe the pacing in this game will be like that, I dunno.

I got these two from Costco Canada..37 inch is the living room TV, and 27 inch in the bedroom for the X-Box 360.
I've always liked Viewsonic monitors, but now I'm sold on their quality in HDTV's...

Great stuff..

I played the DEMO last night and I was amazed. I spent quite a bit of time just watching the flames on the water, checking out the detail in the stone steps, the lighting effects were incredible.

Then I noticed the plane tail was sinking, and I was like naw it must just be an effect that loops.  I watch a bit longer and notice that it is sinking and the plane finally vanishes.

The attention to detail is simply amazing. If the rest of the game is like the DEMO this will definitely be a cotender for GOTY.

GOTY? Well, I suppose thats possible given we haven't seen the full retail version yet. But from the demo I can't believe that this will be the best game of the year.......I'm really hoping not anyway.

While the visuals and atmosphere are top notch, the gameplay is so yesterday...I know, I know, FPS games aren't my favorite but still, I can't see this game being played through more than once. And then I can see it getting boring and frustrating toward the end.

Did anyone else notice the Half life reference near the beginning of the demo? The place where pip-boy(Atlas)tells you to pick up a "crowbar" or something...right near where you pick up the pipe-wrench.  With all the water around having a pipe-wrench fits.
But wasn't the first weapon you find in Half life a crowbar?

I wish I could "get" FPS games like some of you do.......after all the 360 sure does have its share of them.. icon_cry

But......

It's a demo........All in all, I think it's a first day purchase...My only concern is how long it plays...

You've got to be kidding me. This is the best looking game on Xbox 360 yet period. Blows Gears of War out of the water imo.

It looks good, but it doesn't blow Gears out of the water

Agreed..I still say the visuals are good, but not WOW....

There's less gay people than straight people.  They share something in common that's a huge part of their life and culture and makes them feel different from society as a whole.  It makes sense that there would be bonding based on this, no?

We could certainly make a site called Straightgamer but since most gamers are straight there wouldn't be a point.  It's just a way for like-minded people (who happen to be in a minority) to get together and feel a sense of camaraderie.  I don't think it has anything to do with "flaunting" or "being seen as liberated."

And this is what makes the World go round......Opinions....Thats yours, I have mine, they have theirs...Who's right? It doesn't matter.
I still think sexual orientation within in the gaming world is a moot point.,......basically, who cares?

Quote from: MerianMoriarty on August 10, 2007, 08:12:50 AM

personally, as a female gamer, i feel more comfortable around the crowd at gaygamer than grrlgamer.  maybe because all the girls i meet on Live sound like militant bitches who want to tear men's throats out...  *shrug*

and i don't think that "singling yourself out" should in any way make hate-related attacks okay.  they didn't have it coming just because they aren't hiding their heads in the sand, and the mere implication of such is indicative of an attitude that perpetuates ignorance, fear, and repression.  "keep your head down and no trouble will come to you" is no way to live your life, no matter what makes you who you are, whether it's gender, sexuality, religion, or whatever.  there's no reason to be so afraid of other people not liking your life choices that you become ashamed of them, and in AMERICA, of all places, it should be safe to be yourself.

I don't believe anyone here is saying, "hide you gayness"...but what "I'm" saying is, why the need to even mention it in gaming circles?
I don't feel the need to let everyone know that I'm hetrosexual........I could care less what people think I am.
It seems that there is a double standard at times....If a man flaunts his hetrosexualness(which is silly)but in any case, he'll probably get labeled homophobic......But if a gay person flaunts their preference they are seen as liberated...........

Keep sex out of the gaming world, and we'll all be happier, well balanced people........

I think this thread has shown more than enough reasons for gay gamers to have their own site.  No one is forcing straight people to go there so I dont see why it is such a big deal.   
The thing is, I think the site is good enough for everybody. Just like Gaming Trend, the place for Console games (as it used to be) was good enough for PC gamers too.

For me, pardon my hetrosexualness, I don't get the whole name-tag thing. If it was to cater to everyone why call it, Gay Gamer?
Would you feel left out, or judged if there was sites called, Hetro Fragger's?
Would you feel like you would want to go there?

Are you asking me?  As a married heterosexual male I wouldn't have a problem going to that site, though I would most likely avoid it as it would probably attract the same crowd that thinks Axe body spray is going to get them laid.  No thanks, thats what Spiketv is for.  Also, who said they are trying to cater to everybody?

Its funny to me....WoW is so heavily invested into Raiding and in all my time in WoW..(since it went live) I've yet to do anything higher than a 5 man p.u.g.

Reasons being I just can't seem to find a guild that does raiding...and, or, want a Hunter.

I want to complain about it, but on a positive note that just shows you how much there is to do in WoW.

I've kept busy all this time and I haven't done a single raid instance.

I would like to, just never happened.

On a side-Fantasy note: I wish solo players could go into these instances just to see them...Not sure how you could work it, but of course no raid quality items should drop etc....but just for those of us, and there are tons, who would like to see the inside of these elite instances....dreaming I know... icon_cry
