41  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Gauging interest in a pair of EVGA GTX460 SC video cards on: July 06, 2014, 02:38:52 PM
I've got a pair of EVGA "Superclocked" GTX460 1GB DDR5 video cards that I am no longer using. Not a darn thing wrong with them, just decided to swap them out for a single EVGA GTX780 FTW card. Any interest out there in the community? They were $270 each when I picked them up but I'm sure we could come to an agreement on a sweet combo deal if there's any interest. Much rather they go to someone here than having to futz with EBay or things of that ilk.

Let me know. Thanks!

I was ignoring D:OS because I don't have a PC that will run it. Then I saw that it's Mac too. Why isn't there an impressions thread?

Is it good? Haven't seen any reviews yet.

Edit: read Qt3's thread. People seem to like it...sounds like it still has a few patches coming out.  I am torn, I have the summer off (unfortunately) but I am broke. Food or new game? Decisions, decisions...
Iíve given up on posting impressions threads because no one ever responds to them.  Tongue

Itís good, very good in fact.  Do you like games like Fallout 1&2 or Baldurís Gate?  If so you will probably like Divinity: Original Sin.  Even better if you play it in co-op.

Seems like the majority of PC impression threads are over at OO... including one for D:OS.

From The Guardian:

The new game adds new units, technology, buildings and wonders, as well as beefed-up graphics compared to its predecessor. For veterans, the inclusion of jet fighters, lasers and even Silicon Valley will spice up an already-engrossing game.

Civilization Revolution 2 also notably shuns the dominant free-to-play business model in mobile gaming. It costs £10.49 to download from the App Store, with no in-app purchases.

well, now I kind of wished I stayed with the PS4 version...  The game engine is the same they used for Rage, and that had major texture pop in.  I forgot about that.  And it's prevalent in Wolfenstein.  I wished I did some research before buying.  I'm pretty sure I had upgraded my PC since Rage came out, and that the fact the texture pop in isn't noticible at all in the PS4 version, would make you think that my PC would be able to handle it.

Yeah, I couldn't play Rage on the PC for more than 1 minute without going crazy from texture popping and I finished Wolfenstein on the PS4 and never noticed it once. 

I remember that was really terrible in the initial release but from what I recall they straightened that out over time. Between patches and the "launch options" you can use, you should be some degree of fine. FWIW, found these in my Steam version:

Wolfenstein is fun, but man I had some frustrating moments already in the first level.  Jumping out of that plane, it tells me to sprint and jump. I followed their instructions and I kept dying and dying over and over again.]

Funny, had the exact same issue and not really sure what I was doing wrong. I kept dying, they kept telling me to 'sprint and jump' and I kept yelling at the screen that I AM sprinting and jumping, dammit! Finally worked and not really sure what was different when it did, guess I finally got the timing of the jump to its liking.  icon_confused

But yah, fun game. Big  thumbsup

zombie skeletons attack, while little Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome kid throws fierballs at them

It's a bit more than that:

They are saved by one of the Children of the Forest who leads them to 'three eyed crow'.

More spoilerific thoughts on the ending...

Spoiler for Hiden:
I get the 'go back further' part from the Omega but I was fully expecting him to wake up and then have to convince them to bomb the crap out of the museum and kill it once and for all. However, he goes back and it's still dead? Is that what the broadcast said and if so, not really sure how to reconcile that.
53  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Edge of Tomorrow (aka All You Need is Kill) on: June 10, 2014, 04:31:21 AM
The wife and I saw this Sunday. In much the same boat, not a big TC fan but enjoyed Oblivion and had a hell of a lot of fun with this one... right up until the end, which I couldn't really explain to the wife when she asked me wtf just happened. It almost seemed like we saw the real / original ending just before the last five minutes and it didn't play well with preview audiences or something, so they tweaked it to add the happy. I took a quick peek at the graphic novel adaption of the book and it was completely different so didn't really help at all. I've had the novel on my Kindle for awhile but wanted to see the movie first, I'll bet it doesn't really answer any questions either.

I wonder what the official explanation of the ending is?  icon_neutral

I've been seeing popups from certain ads (ad?) when browsing the forums on my phone which is annoying. Most are innocuous but one gives me a BS message that I "may have four viruses". Here's two I took a screen shot of:




There seem to be several more. Thought you might like to know.

If I have no experience with Witcher, can I just jump on the bandwagon at this game?

Just wanted to add that there is apparently a hidden message in the E3 trailer where one of the things they say is:

By the way, if you're new to the series, don't worry, the game will introduce you into all you need to know, and you'll start loving (and hating!) characters in no time!

Frightened and scared are basically synonymous, you look one up it includes mention of the other. Startled is more of a sudden shock or "start" to me, something brief, a quick involuntary movement... although it is also listed as synonymous with the other two.

I preordered it from Amazon for the PS4 around the same time but ended up cancelling at the last minute. I have a crap ton of other titles on my plate at the moment and really need to decide if I'd rather PC this one... so waiting for the embargo to lift.

I found that some areas re-spawn enemies, although in fewer numbers.  The main area with the plane crash wreckage had about a dozen enemies spread around.

64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tomb Raider on: May 20, 2014, 04:36:03 AM
In complete agreement with all that. Still wondering if there are enemies left out there somewhere or do I just wander around picking mushrooms and shooting dream catchers?  icon_wink
65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tomb Raider on: May 19, 2014, 01:02:19 PM
Two months after setting it aside in frustration, I threw in the disk last night and finished it up in one shot.  icon_eek  Had an 85% completion rate, now to decide on how much 'closure' I need to bring to my unfinished collections.  I'm curious, though - could there still be enemies out there? Wondering about some of the combat trophies I don't have or if it's all about salvage and collection at this point.

Awesome end to Season 2... a big  thumbsup to that and the show in general. Nice to see The Flash trailer as well.

And if for some reason you're here and haven't seen it yet, I'll spoiler this bit:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Wasn't expecting Summer's run as Isabel "The Queen" to end this season for some reason, nor quite like that. Thought the mask they put her in was kind of... odd.. but I guess they wanted to stay with the DeathStroke theme.

And I had to smile when Ollie professed his love for Felicity when it dawned on me what was going on, the play he was making. Poor Ms. Smoke.

Wonder if the Kinectless-XB1s will have that processing power restored. I doubt it, now that I think about it.

Dropping Kinect could free up extra processing power in Xbox One.

The console's architecture gives the game operating system a fixed reservation of CPU power and the same is true for Kinect, he said.

"We have special processors for Kinect that enables a bunch of really cool things like part of what you saw today, when Yusuf was like in Internet Explorer and said 'Go to home' or 'Go to ESPN'," Kilgore said at the time. "He also said 'Go to Halo' and when he was in Halo he could have gone somewhere else. So the system is always listening, kind of outside of the game, which is really different from the 360 model, once you get into the game, it's really only the game code that is running. So we can extend all that in our system versus it being tied up in the game code."

But Mehdi said that could change now.

"We are in discussions with our game publishers about what we might do in this space and we will have more to talk about soon," he said.

I'm enjoying it. It scratches an itch for an RPG on the PS4 for me. Does it have cutting edge graphics, break startling new ground, amaze and amuse young and old alike? No, but I do get an Amalur / Witcher vibe when I play. Maybe it all falls apart as we go deeper down the rabbit hole but so far so good.

I really wanted to thank JZ for reminding me about FNW, I remember coveting them 'back in the day' and came this close to pulling the trigger on a new one before sanity prevailed. Well, maybe not so much sanity as I'm in the same Someday Boat with Lee but more because of some unexpected expenses taking priority.  [sigh]

Ha!  icon_biggrin

In my defense, I never said what is actually going on - just what isn't, which I really didn't see as any kind of a spoiler or I wouldn't have posted it. I honestly doubt I even know all that's going on since I'm only in Chapter 4. Still working out the interesting nuances of the combat which has more to it than I thought it did at first, the earlier mention of 'Grandia' didn't enlighten me at all never having played it/them.

Also thanks for the touchpad tip, forsaken forge, didn't know about that.  thumbsup
