    I can't stomach reading a thing he writes, it's all so utterly bananas. I'll defer to my original post in that case.

    @INSOMANiAC That would be true if it were not limited to the UK only.

    Have to say Steam is quick: bought Far Cry 3 on my iPhone last night, just started installing it and getting average 11MB/s (88Mb/s) and it's taken about four minutes for entire 7.8GB

    (Steaming HD on iPlayer at same time too.)

    A Sandybridge Extreme Workstation sounds like something you buy from the Shopping Channel that has a vice at one end.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    @LeoliansBro

    Well I actually want to call all the current Ivy bridge dual channel memory stuff Celeron. But as so many people aren't happy with that description I'm forced to refer to normal high-end desktop as entry workstation class. Will Ivy bridge-E (Extreme) also sound like shopping channel?

    But notice how no one, actually tackles the points raised. Are mods really reverse engineer games to improve them beyond developer programming? Was sub-HD Dark Souls just too much for From Software to deliver? Has unreal engine and MT framework gone backwards now they can't use 8 logical core cpus on PC(yet can use 6 and 8 on 360 and PS3?

    No one tackles the points raised because they're fucking stupid.

    Ivy-Bridge E (Extreme) sounds like hazing for undoing the second button of your pringles tshirt as an initiation.

    But this detracts from the larger point which is that I really don't care.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    No. If you're talking about dark souls, all the 'modder' did was swap the dx dll from another game and tweaked it so it accepted commands from the accompanying ini file. More of a cludge than a proper mod.


    Was sub-HD Dark Souls just too much for From Software to deliver?

    No. That's exactly what they delivered.

    Or yes, HD was more than they could deliver.

    Can't make head nor tail of your double negatives, but either way they're poor developers with very little technical ability.

    No point. But in order to get the consoles to run at anywhere near acceptable speeds, they had to do everything they could to squeeze every last bit of performance out of the decrepit junk.

    I love Vizzini's tech-talk. He uses lots of fancy tech words in a way that will baffle and impress the layman and lead to guffaws of disbelief from anyone who actually has the knowledge and experience.

    It's a black hole of bullshit, don't stare at it too long or you'll sucked in!

    Of course I'm just saying that so nobody answers his life or death questions because my evil masters The League of Villainy fear him uncovering their nefarious schemes.
