Windows 10 and Steam. So I guess it means Windows 10 store, rather than Windows 10 requirement or could be both or either. Who knows.

They specifically mention Win 10. So, yeah - it's possible this might not even be coming to Win 7, 8 + 8.1.

That'd especially be true if this requires DX12.

I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

 

EDIT:

inb4 MysterD freaks out that the sky is falling and that games will start requiring Windows 10 even though it obviously just means it will be sold on the damned store.

Well, we do know Gears of War: Remastered looks to be also Win 10 exclusive:

I wouldn't put it past Microsoft, personally.

I mean, they are giving free upgrades to Win 10 for Win 7, 8, 8.1 users.

Could be a way to force gamers to eventually just give in + take the upgrade.

 

But, again - only time will tell.

We'll eventually find out, for sure.

I've heard that that card only has split of 3.5 GB on 256-bit bus + other .5 GB on 32-bit bus.  Someone here mentioned it... I can't remember who... :-k

FTFY.

About that 3.5 GB 256-bit bus + 0.5 GB 32-bit bus split on the 970:

EDIT:

ehh good enough for me. As long as it can match or beat my ps4 on all games I'm happy

You got an Enthusiast card ($300+ club), so you'll be crushing what a PS4 can do.

Expect to run everything at at least 1080p (you probably can go above that; probably 1440p if your monitor supports it; and even above that) & on likely set at High, Very High & Ultra settings on most games. :)

 

Just make sure if you do want to go to higher settings, run something that monitors your system like EVGA Precision X, RivaTuner, MSI Afterburner - and pay attention to how much VRAM it's eating-up. Make sure you show on the on-screen display the amount of GPU Memory Usage when running a game, to see this. If it's eating high numbers of VRAM (i.e. it's getting close to what you have + maybe trying to go over the 3.5GB VRAM issue) so that it begins to sutter & slow-down - you're gonna have to turn something down.

 

Batman AK is notorious for eating-up high amounts of VRAM - i.e. 1080p at Ultra + High, it eats anywhere from 3GB to 4GB VRAM for me.

 

Enjoy your beast of a card and game-on!

Have you actually played it and if so do you really like it?

I loved Life Is Strange: Episodes 1-3 + have been waiting for Ep 4.

 

My (long-winded) thoughts here on Eps 1-3:

It's ok. It happens. Just post something about Dragon Age, AAA games and wait for MyD to pop up, his sensors run on five minute sweeps.

FTFY. :)

 

BTW - both Dragon Age: Origins + Inquisition are excellent RPG's, IMHO.

We already had EA Accounts years ago. EA never merged them with Origin properly. For fuck's sake...

 

I got this email yesterday morning, this is ridiculous.

As usual, EA can't make up their mind.

First EA Download Manager; then EA Origin; now becoming EA Account.

I wonder it'll become way layer - maybe EA Account Origins Download Manager?

I watched wraslin' when I was about 10, but now I think it's stupid; sophomoric, scripted content belittling its viewers by pretending to be spontaneous, where one guy can be a face one month and come back as a heel the next, all topped with mostly fake violence. It's something that someone defeated by life would resign themselves to, IMO.

It's actually censored, namely Doom 1 & Doom 2 that are included in it. :P There's no uncensored version at all.

I still have the old DOOM Collector's Edition pack from retail (which includes Complete Ed's of Doom 1+2 & also Final Doom).

Final Doom seems to not be in D3: BFG - so, this retail pack just got reinstalled for Final Doom.

 

I'm gonna have to go looking around for good Source Ports to run these old-school Doom WAD's.

Been a while - I think I used to use Doomsday, back in the day.

Yeah, my key arrived about 5-10 minutes later.

Google Translate is cheating! No special achievement for you.

:shame:

Key just showed up. Awesome! :)

I just bought via PayPal. With something as cheap as this, I'm not going to lose sleep over a few pennies. It's a very good price which is made better by the weak euro.

Despite speaking hardly any German it was pretty easy to navigate. If you don't have Doom 3 BFG you'd be silly to pass it up despite conversion costs.

You can use Google Chrome to translate a site from German (or any other language just about) to English.

Just click the Language symbol in upper right hand part of the address bar.

 

EDIT:

And bought. :) Not bad at all. PayPal went through.

It's "In Examination" right now in My Games account from their website.

Also Gamesplanet rep posted today's deals on reddit and it says:

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (uncensored in all stores)

source: https://www.reddit.c...mer_sale_day_3/

Can US buyers just buy straight up Paypal with CC w/out using Hola or a VPN?

That's usually how I do foreign purchases w/ Gamersgate USA + UK; GMG; etc.

 

How much are conversion fees from Non-USA to USD?

Looks like conversion fees are 2.5% via PayPal.

Ryan Gosling gets his ass kicked?

 

Gonna have to watch that movie.

If you like some of Refn's films (i.e. Drive, Fear X, etc), you'll probably like Only God Forgives.
