570 is still a pretty decent gfx card. Maybe not 60fps @ ultra, but 60 fps at medium.

Should be fine. Tomb Raider you won't be able to max out. Infinite looks like Unreal 3, so it shouldn't be an issue. Arkham City takes both DX11 and high PhysX to really drop for me. Unreal 3 games get murdered by any current hardware.

Mikey, if you ever need help, just even a hint or whatever, I'm always willing to help a fellow coder try to figure something out.

Even if you just want a sounding wall or feedback...

The only question is what's the best way to hit me up... PM me, I guess?

You can get a pack with that, Ridge Racer Unbounded, and MUD, which is like $5 per game, if you don't have any of them.

Them PC Batman games are just bad at optimization. I still can't get it to sit at my wanted 60fps, but games like Crysis 3 sit perfectly at 60fps on high.

Don't tell me to buy more games corrosive! I don't need more useless games!

lol wut. Batman games fly for me. Dunno what your issue is. . .Oh wait, you still have that ancient Phenom II? That'll do it. Though Arkham Asylum was 60+ on my 940 with my 275, medium PhysX. I had to use my 8800GT as a dedicated PhysX card to run it on high. 480, I can do both no problem, one card.

hmmmm.... I got physX off because I dont have a Nvidia card no more.

You can say that my 975 BE is the problem, but BF3, Crysis 3 and many others all run extremely well on my rig right now.

I also watched BSG: Blood and Chrome last night, still don't know what my opinion is of it.

Those games are more GPU limited than CPU. And I don't know how you can't max out the Batman games no problem without PhysX. Boggles the mind. They fucking fly without it.

I mean, come on, Jake. Here's old ass Arkham Asylum with high PhysX, maxed out, 16xQ CSAA. Turn off PhysX, and it's way higher. Arkham City with DX11, high tesselation, high PhysX, high FXAA doesn't fare as well, but put it down to DX9 and it cruises too. So yeah, since you're running both without PhysX, no clue what your issue is.

Guys, I beat Metro 2033 last night. What the Fuck is up with that whole last part of the game? That game decided to take a massive non-solid shit for the last quarter of the game.

When in doubt, let me kill more nazis.


/edit: so there are two endings... either way the last few parts of the game were pretty meh.


The explosion ending is the canonical one.

I don't know. For the most part, my likes are pretty normal. The only stuff I really dislike are pretentious, indie games and first person shooters. Though even my FPS hate has exceptions. I love the Bioshock games for example. I do have a few weird opinions. I thought Rising was ok at best and loved DmC. Musou games are probably my favorite genre. I'ved owned every Dynasty Warriors game and spinoff since DW1 (which was a fighting game oddly enough).

Loved Tomb Raider btw.

Also if anyone wants to play Gears feel free to add/invite me. Overrun is actually pretty fun. Still angry horde mode is gone though. That's where I spent the vast majority of my time in Gears 3.


I bought Judgement today after trading in Tomb Raider for $40 at GS.

yo what low-budget equipment can get me good voice recording for two people? just need mics, a mixer, and software, ya?


If both are in the same room then the PlayStation Eye is the cheapest mic you can get for decent quality. The best quality vs. price is the Blue Snowball but you'd need a pop filter and have both people wearing headphones to avoid echo.

Since I booted up my Wii this past weekend I looked at all the Data on my GC Memory cards. I have saves for RE4 and the Rogue Squadron game. After reading the first book I'm kind of itching for Rogue Squadron.

Is the GC version of RE4 worth it still? Or should I pony up for the :360: or :ps3: ports?


I'd get the PS3/360 port next time it's on sale. HD port of the PS2/Wii version with all the tweaks and extra content.

Try medium tesselation then. Game's DX11 is still a bit jacked. Day one though, it was straight up broken. Now? It's fine if you don't go hog wild on it, just takes some muscle.

As someone who does love the original Bioshock, I think it's perfectly fine for you to have that opinion. I like the gameplay, but I realize not everyone has to enjoy it. It's just funny to me that for a game that is pretty well regarded everywhere else, the GGT of course has the opposite opinion. I don't think any hyped game lives up to that hype for the GGT.


To be fair, you seem to enjoy everything you play. Like, a lot.

In playing and learning Civ 5, I've always been a big believer of consideration when putting hammers into wonders. I didn't really "get" the civ games until I forced myself to avoid wonders. Which isn't to say that wonders don't help, only that for me they always got in the way of understanding the basics. So naturally, I had never played as Egypt. Until now...

Egypt, deity, wonder spam to cultural victory. Given how deity can be like a game of solitaire (i.e. some games can't be won no matter your skill level) due to your draw of maps, I decided to give myself a fighting chance by restarting until I saw a workable marble withing 4 to 5 tiles of the starting settler.

I explored and saw that I had a few CSs nearby, I steal a worker at T20 and we're off to the races. My start is desert and somehow I land Desert Folklore even though I'm the second pantheon out. That was the first of many breaks. I didn't get many breaks in production tiles beyond the cap, so I decided to go OCC even though I think OCC is a heap of a bullshit. (Also, OCC refers to one-city challenge even though I didn't tick OCC on setting up the game -- it's just a convenient way to refer to the fact that I'm doing this with one city only.)

One anti-break (an obstacle, I guess) was the other civs in the match. The first civs I uncover are Mongols, Huns, Iroquois, and Americans. Seriously. Four expansive dipshits, two of them serious warmongers. Later on in the match I encountered the remaining civs: Germany, Carthage, and Japan. Two MORE expansionists, one of whom (Bismarck) is kind of a nemesis for me. He's a gigantic dick.

So I've got one hell of a draw here. It's nice that they're going to be fighting with each other, but it's bad because at least one of them is going to come for me. They're going to be expanding in on me (and they did). Again, though, geography was on my side this game, there was a CS and big useless desert between me and everyone else to the east, jungle and Genghis to the north, a CS and ocean to the west, and ocean to the south.

Because of my luck with the geography, I made the decision to limit my defense to 4 archers and a warrior and lay the hammer down on the Wonder Spam 3000. It's insane. By roughly T125, I have Stonehenge, Temple of Artemis, Hanging Gardens, Petra, The Oracle, Chichen Itza, Alhambra, and Terracotta Army (which was hanging around late for some reason). That was really amazing to me. I didn't know wonder spam could be that spammy. And note that it wasn't like I neglected everything else: I've got a serviceable army, it's only 5 or 6 units but it buys me time to negotiate peace.

And that's one of the unfortunate things (and I use that lightly as I abused the hell out of it) about the AI is that when you play OCC, the negotiation process really breaks down.

My friend to the north, Genghis, was effectively a mugger throughout the match. He's equally happy with me if I negotiate peace and give him 15g or 1500g, provided either amount is 100% of my bank. This was a cycle he and I went through three times in the game between ~T155 (his first DOW) and T290 (my win). He attacks, I quickly deplete my bank via rush bought buildings or CS gifts, I sacrifice military units as long as I can, and eventually I buy him off for 100g or so. That's it.

I would imagine that, if I had additional cities, he'd have wanted a few...but with no cities to give, he just wanted whatever money I had on me. Which is disappointing, in a way, because that's effectively a mugging. It's unbecoming the difficulty level, but that's OCC.

Even though I played OCC, I don't have much respect for it, because it "breaks" the game in ways that aren't meant to be broken. There's an underlying assumption in so many mechanics of the game that you have more than one settlement. The fact that you can succeed with just one city, like some kind of mega CS, doesn't make sense to me. Plus, the culture system is set up to reward that style of play with shitloads of bonuses. It shouldn't be that way if the AI is not able to respond to single-city civs more aggressively.
