I'm still rolling with my 780, no intention of upgrading this cycle... I run at 1920x1200, and it does fine for now. Mind you, I don't play competitive fps for anything... but for Neverwinter, World of Tanks, Marvel Online, and more, it does just fine. No speed issues at all.


ps: as for the 2Gb and 'more than 2GB' debate... I've been in favor of the 'more than 2GB' side of things for a while now. _most_ games don't need more than 2... but some do. And that number is not getting smaller.

I'm not sure if this is on Netflix USA, but we recently got the cBBC (youth BBC) series Wolfblood here on Netflix-Canuckistan. I noticed it was getting good viewer ratings, so I checked it out with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised by it. It's a take on the lycathropy mythos that's aimed at a younger teen audience, although IMO there little in it that wouldn't be fine for preteens.  It  has a very good cast of youth actors and the handful of adult actors turn in solid performances too. I watched the 1st season -unfortunately all that's available on Netflix Canuckistan- and except for 1 or 2 goofy episodes that were deliberatley targeted at a younger viewers, the writing has been good with dialog that really doesn't talk down to its audience, making it enjoyable for adults. The CGI for the wolves is fairly cheesy, but it still works and the canines come across as, dare I say it, cute at times - they do have their scary moments too. Best thing about it is the music which is Celtic and very tastefully done - one of the best opening songs I've heard in a while.

The series was produced for a youth primetime viewing slot, so the episodes are only 25 minutes long. cBBC produced  2 more seasons, so my daughter and I are hoping Netflix picks those up too. IMO definitely worth watching if you have some youngsters at home that would enjoy watching something from the horror genre that'll entertain them, but won't give them nightmares.

I had never heard of it and have no idea where that button even is.

I like the unified approach, and after using Office 2013 I think I'm into the design/UI their going for. I don't think it's going to mean anything for gaming, though. Except that the Xbox should get more apps.

Friggin' hell, the feedback from Oculus Rift dev kit folks is awesome - they updated the underlying SDK from an old one to the newest available, and added a lot of things that smooth out the VR experience quite a bit.

Reeeeeeally hoping that my large backlog of other items can help me hold off on this until retail release...

Oh boy, this is what I was hoping to hear. They were pretty silent about Oculus Rift when talking about new stuff in this beta, but those of us with one were hoping they'd do something. Sounds like they did. Now I have to try this out. smile

The Wii U looks to be one the biggest flops of all time.

So far, awfully happy with this one. Graphics are solid, and the road trips are relaxed enough that you can really check out the scenery (which is absolutely spectacular in some cases).

I don't think it's too stingy with credits if you have the non-VIP version, but then, I'm playing as a cheapskate - 16 levels and 4.5 championships in, and I have yet to spend a single credit on anything (thanks to using my starter car and the Ferrari you get at the start for two championships each, and getting a lucky roll on the level-up roulette wheel to win a sweet Nissan Skyline that I've also been using. I have half a million banked, and it looks like the championships are identical enough that I'll be able to keep using these cars long enough to save up for damn near any garage I'd like. I'll start spending like a madman at some point, but right now I'm curious how far I can get with just the cars I win and find. I'm not exactly suffering for variety at the moment, given that the bucket list missions and the train/plane races give you plenty of fast toys to play with.

The Pokemon Snap mini-game is neat but I suspect it won't have a ton in the way of legs, given that a just few hours of play in I'm 43 cars into the 100 (using the perk that highlights un-snapped cars). Worst-case, it helps me build up the bank to actually afford a few of the cars I'd like.

I like the controls so far, for the most part - the supercars are a bit twitchy, but then, when you can just baaaarely keep one under control, it really clicks. The BMW I picked to start feels awfully floaty and I have way more issues with it than any other car so far - the winner of my bunch has to be the Skyline, which sticks to the road like nobody's business but has a nice tight feeling offroad.

So far the pacing of progression is great, and mixing things up as much as it does is pretty nice, between hunting down billboards, doing head-to-head races, championships, and smashing the XP and fast travel signs. I'm actually starting to wonder how much of the game is rigged to have you just barely sliding by missions, because I've won a few things by the skin of my teeth (the plane one by less than a tenth of a second, the train one by 1.5 seconds, and a couple of the skills challenges I've nailed my last skill in the last second or two).

FCC votes to abolish NFL blackout rule.  I think this is a great thing.

Does this mean they have to comply immediately?

On NPR they said they are still free to make deals with teams/broadcasters locally so it may just be put back in place that way. It's just not enforceable at the Federal level.
