It all ends up being about the developer and how well they optimize their games to run on PCs. Some do a horrible job and even amazing PCs lag or have issues trying to run it. Others (Like Sleeping Dogs) do a wonderful job and make it so the game runs smoothly and amazing while using the least amount of resources possible. It's funny that less demanding games heat up my laptop more then Sleeping Dogs :)

I can also confirm this

Sleeping Dogs with a single AMD HD7870 2GB Card ran smooth at 5992x1080 (Eyefinity 3 monitor resolution) with Max settings (Except Low FXAA). With HD6990 card, it ran with all settings cranked up to the max including FXAA

Square Enix did an excellent job with Deus Ex Human Revolution and Sleeping Dogs :applause:

I'm well above the system requirements for walking dead, but did have lag issues. I ended up turning off character shadows and that fixed it up. Might give that a try... I did not miss the shadows once it was turned off.

Just checked my Amazon G+S library. I have another Supreme Commander 2 key O.o Did this happen to anyone else? I heard they gave out extras b/c some people accidentally got the original but my first key worked fine :P. Also, is there anyway to check if this is perhaps the same key (I had to click "View Product Key" to see it, so I'm assuming it's just a new key)?


Best username ever.

I really think the weird lag Telltale games tend to always have has something to do with the way they handle loading in their engines and is independent of the system you run it on. It's been a consistent problem since the Sam and Max games.

I'm knee deep in XCOM, want to start a new character in Borderlands 2 (or just complete more challenges as my assassin), and haven't downloaded Walking Dead Ep 4 yet, but that's a good price on a game I really want to play.

And tomorrow's payday.

Went ahead and got borderlands 2 season pass for 22.49 with the code. I know it will be cheaper, but still, this is not a bad price for DLC that has an MSRP of 40 bux.

Don't bother with sites like Can You Run It. They just take the system requirements listed by the publisher/developer, then scan you system to see how well they match. It's just comparing numbers without knowing if they game itself is even well optimized.

Best performance indicator will always be demo as the one you tried.

Sleeping Dogs for $20 is a hell of a deal! Sadly I'm going to wait for the GOTY edition of there is one. If not, I'll pick it up on the cheap. Thank again Tony for always booking us up!

Thank you for the tip but I already purchased BF3 Premium from Amazon because I have a problem with Origin store (Also THQ and Ubishop or any Digital River Service crap) that gives me the famous "Payment Authorisation Failed" error when I try to buy anything even free DLCs lol

The offer is only for those who will buy Premium from Origin Store

Damn! I don't know why Amazon is so slow refunding my GC balance, been more than 30 hours now :cry: I wanted to get Sleeping Dogs for a friend


FYI you don't need to buy BF3 Premium from Origin, it can be bought from anywhere but you need to use the link http://offer.medalofhonor.com to get the 50% code which can be used to purchase Warfighter by itself through the Origin store.

Can't get the 25% off sleeping dogs as its only 1 per account, but at the price I may still just go for it!

Amazon currently doesn't have a contract to carry Bethesda games. We know Tony is working hard to change that :bouncy:

If anyone is not going to use his $5 coupon for Sleeping Dogs (hard to believe ;-) I'd gratefully accept it :-D

btw, I do not intend to use the one for Hitman Absolution ($5 off), so if you want it simply PM me ;-)
