I'd hoped for a single character story based add-on, that would also fix the immersion breaking 3 character approach.

Video: The Order 1886 - debating the issue of value

Andee

Maybe I'm getting old, but I'd far rather have a shorter game than I'll have the chance to finish than a game than drags on for 25 hours+ that I'll never be able to make time for.

Although when I was a kid with endless free time and limited funds my view would have been somewhat different.

Disappointed in EG further pushing a clear agenda which they can't even seem to identify as such.

Anything can be made to fit an angle if you try hard enough. It's the lack of critique of the critique that's more depressing though.

Digital Foundry vs. the Alienware X51 R2

Andee

@[STARS]TyranT It's maybe not very clear I admit, but Alienware have their own independent customer service support numbers. Any Alienware owner can use them, even though you are buying from Dell, it's not something you have to sign up for as such.

It sounds like you used Dell support. While Dell will provide support for Alienware systems, you should always use the option of the entirely seperate Alienware support instead. It's a far superior service.

Worth noting that the quoted 300 difference would also be less if you use the discount codes they are nearly always doing, plus make use of the cashback deals.

It'd be a 130-180 difference then depending on the codes.

Supercomputing in consumer form: Nvidia's new GTX Titan graphics card

Andee

5 years ago

@ATARI Yep 2 680s here. No way I could justify a Titan from the previews, it looks like being mid way between a 680 and a 690/680sli, while being priced like the latter.

So for 690/680sli owners, it looks like the only decent upgrade would be a Titan sli setup, which would be a fair amount of cash, and still mean the same potential problems that sli supposedly brings like driver support and such.

@ATARI 6GB is indeed a waste, nothing will benefit from it at he moment. I guess the 6 GB is about attempting to justify sale price vs 6GB 7970s rather than being required for performance.

Review embargo ends on Thursday, will be interesting to see benchmarks.

Possibly difficult choice for existing 690 or 680 sli ( as I have atm) owners, as a single card Titan appears to be a downgrade, but 2 Titans would be a fair amount of cash.

Andee

@ATARI 2 7950s will likely match the fps averages of Titan but as you mention, the frame time consistency makes it a lesser experience.

Leaked benchmarks suggest a 690 still has a decent lead over Titan anyway, so at the same price it's about the fps vs sli support and potential vram limitations.

And yes Titan supports full voltage based overclocking, which was otherwise disabled on the kepler range, apart from a batch of msi gtx680 lightning iirc.

Driver: San Francisco

Andee

The coma thing sounds stupid. Nothing is more sure to ruin any possibility of immersion than the game mechanics explicitly acting to remove you from the 'realism' of the environment.

And for all the bugs, at least in Driv3r and Parallel Lines did feel reasonably immersive in terms of the driving aspect.

No mod tools would be going back on what they had previously suggested for BF3. I do hope it's just an initial public stance so as to be able to sell dlc in the shorter term after launch though.

I fear the set piece creator could end up being a bad idea. How long before you notice certain setups that seem to exploit the AI or whatever, thus cheapening any victories you gain. Hopefully i'll be proved wrong though.

E3: Forza Motorsport 3

Andee

9 years ago

Not understanding the dislike of Forza 2 RWD cars. For me it's the only game that's come close to getting them right.

Mash the throttle in most 250ish+bhp RWD cars and they will step out when cornering or the road has a bit of camber. Forza required careful application of throttle, just as you would do in real life. Different to most other racing games, where you could plant the throttle out of a hairpin and things stayed tidy.

Would be good if the controls are analogue on this, as even when using a pad on the pc version, it still seemed to be digital, meaning it was easier with the keyboard.

Oh, and I wish devs would stop with this 'HD' naming thing, considering the pc one runs at a higher res anyway.

Proper widescreen for Far Cry 2 PC

Andee

9 years ago

I can't believe people still moan about this issue. As Nabokov and photoboy point out, the framing for the existing widescreen mode was exactly as the game was intended. Who cares if folk on 4:3 ratio see a little more? They are still getting the lesser option due to it not being the ideal framing. The only result of these 'proper widescreen' patches is that we get a widescreen framing which was never intended, creating some of the issues mentioned by other posts here.
