What's sorbet? I honestly have never heard of it.


Americanized = 'Italian Ice'

I like to play some of the older ones first. That way I'm not disappointed by graphics/gameplay. Try Portal, Half-Life Series, Batman AA.

If you want just plain fun, try SRTT.

I recently came from console gaming so that being said, bad graphics with tons of screen tearing doesn't really bother me.

Oh ok now you speak my language.

PS: I'm from Philly and we will never run out of water ice. For gaming of course. ;)

It's funny you mention that. Last year I assembled a rig to reasonable handle modern gaming graphics. As I started purchasing games I thought to myself "Now I can finally mod these games to look awesome!". I now find myself playing games 'straight out of the box' and still saying "These games look awesome!". :lol:

It's similar but different to sherbet. Sherbet has some dairy, sorbet does not. It sometimes contains alcohol which lowers it's freezing temperature leading to a lovely soft texture.

TL;DR think ice cream made with fruit juice and no dairy.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Spec Ops: the Line is really starting to drag along. The beginning was interesting but it has gradually lost my interest.

The graphics are fantasic tho. IMO the graphics are better than Crysis 2.

I'm talking technically but it's my opinion so I may very well be the only person in the world that thinks this. If you look at say the clothing and wounds, it is almost photorealistic.

Edit: Just for reference both games are 1080p and on Very High.

Umm...could your PC run Crysis 2 maxed-out at your monitor's top-resolution w/ Patch 1.9 and all of the extra high-res textures downloads (from Crytek's MyCrysis website)?

EDIT:
Very High is TWO whole settings BELOW the top Crysis 2 settings.
There's also Extreme; and then Ultra (which is DX11 and requires the MyCrysis high-texture downloads installed).
You seriously have to run Crysis 2 on Ultra - if your PC actually can handle it.

There are other high res textures? In that case I guess if you have a more powerful machine, Crysis 2 looks better but I'm on an extremely tight budget.

What I should've said was "Spec Ops looks better than Crysis 2 on my rig."

Crysis 2 was criticized upon its original release on the PC for not looking as good as it should've.

So, they later released Patch 1.9 and released the High-Res Textures (Ultra).
Get the DX11 Enabling feature and High-Res stuff HERE.

Thanks for the links! A GTX 650 can only push out so much. I really need the 700 series to come out.

I actually have a GTX 560 Ti.
Depending on the rest of your PC specs, we might be in a somewhat similar boat here.

I can't run Crysis 2 PC maxed-out on my PC at 1920x1080...
...But I surely can do it on Ultra at 1680x1050.

My PC = i7 950; 8 GB RAM; 1 GB of GeForce GTX 560 Ti (with 301.42 drivers currently); Windows 7 64-bit; 23'' HP 2311x monitor.

EDIT:
Also, make sure to squeeze every ounce of performance you can out of a game, run programs like GameBooster that make it easy to force the disabling of any other programs that might be running in the background and hogging some RAM and resources up.
For Crysis 2 and some other modern games (i.e. Witcher 2 or BF3) - if you want to get them to look as much and as good as your PC can and should be able to handle, this surely can help.

Mine is FX 8320(OC'ed to 4Ghz), 8GB CV, 1GB GtX 650 (310.90); Windows 8 64. My 650 is so overclocked that I'm suprised that it has not crashed at all. BTW you may want to upgrade your drivers. http://www.geforce.c...s/results/55121

I like listening to Spotify when I game + most games don't support more than 4 cores so 4 are game and 4 are everything else.

Yeah, I've been lazy w/ driver updating - hehe.
I've had the latest downloaded (310.90), but ain't installed them.
There's no major game here that I'm playing right now (performing poorly/underwhelming) that's forcing me to upgrade them.

EDIT:
I've basically been playing NBA2K13; YDKJ (2011); and the EA Classics Pack from Amazon (NHL 09 & Madden 08).
