basically an overpriced rebranded slight overclocked r9 290x

@YBX87

Well, I'm also guessing 8GB VRAM R390x is a much better buffer for higher textures + resolution support over the 4GB VRAM R290x.

And it's probably better than what he already has.

 

@Synnarc

What vid-card were you using before this R390x?

Early birthday gift from my wife. Do I ask why AMD and not the new Nvidia? #TIFU

[AMD 380X 390X retail box]

Spoiler

Hmmmm - your wife bought a 8GB VRAM R380X R390X for your birthday.

Now that's what I call an awesome B-day gift! :D

 

Sounds like you're like me - I'm an NVidia guy, not AMD guy.

But, crap - if a loved one bought me that beast, I'd probably be doing cartwheels and stuff & give that card a shot.

I don't remember side quests in Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed.

We ain't talking about linear JRPG's like Sonic All-Stars Racing.

We talking about open-world Western-style RPG's like Test Drive Unlimited 2.

ENCORE Summer Sale Deals are on-going from both WinGameStore and MacGameStore.

 

EDIT:

Not sure if macgames5off promo coupon still works for 5% off extra - but, I'll note it anyways just in case...

Damn. I'm hesitant to play because the time is off putting...I love long immersive rpgs but I've been flying through my backlog this year because I haven't played many long games aside from baldurs gate 2. 

 

That'll end at least when FO4 drops though

Mind you, the game (Dragon Age: Inquisition) can be finished in likely quite a bit less than that. Really depends on how much side-questing you do decide to do.

 

Check HowLongToBeat. Playthroughs can range anywhere from 40-50 hours to...well, you can see where mine went (165 hours).

 

I wound up w/ a Playthrough similar towards that of a Completionist side of things - which for me, w/ a game of especially of this length, is quite rare. I believe I did all of the Loyalty Quests - since I kept bothering the important NPC's til they stopped giving me their Important quests up until they stopped giving me quests, right before the end.

 

But I also actually did most of the other side-quests - even the collect-a-thons + MMO-style quests (get X this, kill X enemies, find X area, etc etc). I didn't do all the side-quests, but a great majority of them.

 

Granted, when you finish the game - you may continue in the game-world to do side-quests. Just...not all quests will be available to you, once you finish the game - which the game tells you + warns you, right before you do the last Main Quest.

After approx. 165 hours, Dragon Age: Inquisition (PC) has been completed. Fantastic RPG. One for the ages, for sure.

New deals have flipped at both...

MacGameStore -> http://www.macgamestore.com/

and WinGameStore -> http://www.wingamestore.com/

 

Nothing really worthwhile there, IMHO.

MysterD - this one's for you, brother.

 

http://blog.humblebu...e-games-on-sale

Thanks for posting that!

 

Awesome idea from Humble! :)

 

It's too bad that most of the games currently on sale right now either just ain't in my 75% off pricing ballpark, I actually already own it, or I've seen better deals elsewhere (i.e. RealMyst Masterpiece had a better deal in the MacGameStore bundle w/ a cheaper price of $4.76 on the 2nd tier - just ask ITAD)!

 

Since deals look to flip every 24 hours, I'll definitely have to keep checking back every day until this sale's over, in case something pops up that I really want!

 

EDIT:

Would be awesome if Dreamfall Chapters pops up at 75% off - but, I'm probably dreaming too soon here...

Revelations is pretty good from what I've played of it. It's more like RE4 and RE5 than the first games. I first tried it on 3DS and was impressed with the game and its 3D, so that made me buy the enhanced version. You're in the RE mansion for the first parts, so the atmosphere is great. I was thinking of getting RE Revelations 2, but will probably wait for the full season to be cheaper.

I agree - RE: Revelations 1 PC is really good. And yes, it's much more similar to both RE4+5 than opposed to say RE6.

While I did like RE6 quite a bit, even despite it having a good deal of problems + flaws - I'll take RE: Rev 1 PC over RE6 any day.

 

Like yourself, I'm also waiting for RE: Rev 2 + Season Pass to drop.

Weekend Promo: Come out and Play! - Up to 70% off
 

Is it me or does a PC port of The Warriors game (by Rockstar) really seem missing here from a sale w/ such a title?

Huh. Well, you should watch it then. It's one of the better Phillip K. Dick adaptations. I've never seen the Director's Cut, which people say is much better than the original version, but it's actually hard for me to imagine the movie without Harrison Ford's voiceover narration.

Also, I've read that thisis really good, and as it's not out on GOG yet. . . .

Yeah, I knew the movie supposed to be great. I should take the time and watch it.

 

Yeah, I heard the game supposed to be pretty good from Westwood, as well. I don't have it from retail or anything. Would be nice if it showed-up on GOG, Steam, or somewhere digitally.

MysterD has Blade Runner on LaserDisc.

 

He hasn't watched it yet, but he will.

Actually, no - I don't have Blade Runner on any format period.

 

I rent tons of movies - but really own pretty much close to nothing.

I often see a movie once, have no interest in seeing it ever again.

 

I have never seen Blade Runner, actually. It's actually On Demand, on one of those paid stations that I have a sub to.

It's either on Starz, Showtime, and Cinemax - gonna have to look.

 

EDIT:

When Black Friday rolls around in a few months you'll be able to pick up a 970 for $300.  Also, EVGA cards are often overpriced compared to Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS... and they're no better.

A few days ago, NewEgg has had a MSI GTX 970 for $300.

 


The 770 I bought for $300 about a year and a half ago outperforms the 960.  And apparently despite the 4GB VRAM the bus size is only 128?  Is that right?

Correct.

Whoops, I think I'm a bit wrong. I saw THAT MOVE last night. Cena had a little feud with that NXT guy, but he was with the announcers at the time and Cena was doing it last night to the replaced challenger. Haha. GONNA HAVE TO WAIT TILL #battleground

 

I don't really follow WWE (as of late, I watched a good bit when I was wayyyy young), but me likey.

 

Apologies for my obvious newbishness. I'm new. 

NXT guy Cena's feuding with = Kevin Owens.

Better known as Kevin Steen from the Indie scene.

 

Cesaro wrestled Cena the other night - great match.
