    Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen coming to PC

    DD: DA is a fantastic game and I`m happy that PC gamers get a chance to finally play it as well. Great and varied soundtrack (give it a listen in Youtube), reasonably sized open world (not huge, but plenty of different locations), neat if sometimes frustrating pawn system and genuinely...

    What are your favorite sad games?

    To The Moon. Incidentally, this is also one of those games with pixel graphics and simple gameplay but it has great music and story.

    Fallout 4

    That´s one of the guys who gives out Radiant quests, right? Those will never end.

    PC releases you are excited for?

    XCOM 2, last episode of Dreamfall: Chapters and Witcher 3: Blood and Wine expansion. Other stuff... Have to wait and see. ;)

    Dark Souls 3

    It needs to end to be honest. We literally went in circles in the two first games, struggling like rats in a closed cage. One way or another, the world has to properly end or to be reborn in its "correct" state. Or the inevitability of the cycles has to be explained somehow without forcing...

    Bloodborne on PC?

    Sony never let go of the Demon´s Souls, so don´t get your hopes up for a port any time soon. BB is one of the system seller games for them too.

    Divinity: Original Sin

    It´s definitely a lot more polished now. I`m going through EE few hours at a time when I have time to spare.

    Massive price cuts on the entire AMD lineup

    Yes, this is definitely a clearance sale since the next gen products are going to be a lot better (at least I hope so) and its pointless to have a lot of goods in warehouses that are not likely to sell much after 14/16nm chips are out. If anything, I`m surprised they waited this long.

    AMD Crimson release Nov 24

    I´ll let others to test the waters first... If there is a shark in the pool, you can play with it first. :p

    ASUS STRIX R9 380X DirectCU II OC Video Card Review @ [H]

    Mid range pricing has been disappointing for a good while now so no surprise there.

    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate

    Have to admit that it looks like a performance pancake on all cards. 1080p with no costly AA and those are the averages? I wonder what is the performance killing feature/s this time... Whatever it is, it´s very likely not worth it. ;)

    Dying Light goes to same pile as well I reckon.

    The full Tonga - aka Radeon 380X (mk2) - when?

    Rendering power should be more or less on par with 280X now, since it´s usually around ~10-20% ahead of 380 in stock clock configuration. Whether the memory bandwidth comes up as a bottleneck limitation... We shall see soon. But "not successfully replacing" is too dramatic in any case. Card...

    Fallout 4

    Lol, that gave me serious vanilla Skyrim vibes. All those iron daggers... :o

    Fallout 4

    If they made it in classic MMO format with all the mob farming and killing raid bosses with bazillion hit points? Nope. Open world roaming game that would have reasonable amount of players sharing each instance? Why not. And actually keep the supposedly better FPS mechanics instead of WOW-style...

    Games that Stress the Player :)

    Nightmare difficulty that was added in later patch makes flamethrower a mere get out of jail card, since it runs out of juice so fast. At that point it is better to avoid tangling with the xeno at every opportunity, because flaming it away just pisses it off and makes it more active. Which leads...

    Fallout 4

    I think Bethesda would fleece any game deal of this type REALLY HARD, since the anticipated sales through normal channels are sure to be high. Even Nvidia would probably balk at the cost.

    Alien Isolation.... Any good?

    Best game in 2014 for me. Best horror game in recent years as well. Buy the collection version when you feel like it (discount or not) and reserve 15-20 hours for the main game and few more for the DLC stuff. And don´t try to complete the game in long sessions, the stress will wear you out...

    R9 290X - This card made me change to nVidia.

    Having couple more players in the game would definitely spice things up.

    I've betrayed my country

    You should have gotten 980 or 980ti instead. You are sending the wrong message to Nvidia by buying a castrated product from them.

    Old Arkham Knight Reviews Flagged as "Pre-Release"

    From what I can tell, they did not fix it. Hence, this re-release should receive same panning as the original did.

    Payday 2’s Microtransaction Nightmare Just Got Worse

    This kind of crud is the easy, low hanging fruit of monetization. Low investment by the company (whip up few skins and +stats) and potentially quite a nice payday. I guess making new maps and stories and mechanics is just not cool anymore. Too bad, because that´s the stuff I would actually...

    Good stability test.

    Personally I don´t find it worth my time trying to squeeze everything out of my graphics card (50mhz makes little difference outside benchmark values). You can easily find an area where the stability is pretty much absolute by backing down from the crash area sufficiently and not being greedy...

    Next Video Card Advice Please

    I hope he has a model that can be downvolted. I have R9 280 here myself and I managed to make my room considerably less toasty by simply going into basic 280 settings which is 850 core and dropped the voltage as low as it went. And I apologize for my inappropriate tone. I hope e3venom can do...

    Next Video Card Advice Please

    He wanted less power use, not more. :) There´s nothing in the market that would exactly fit that criteria. 960 is bit too weak outside 1080p, but it has a low power use. 970 is reasonably more powerful, but uses somewhat more power (and there are few models with awful fans so beware those)...

    Nvidia plans to lock Game Ready drivers behind GeForce Experience registration

    Companies want to profile you and sell/use the info for their own benefit. Google and others are already eating the cake and now Green team wants their piece too. I wonder what the OS landscape and drivers look in 10 years... Everything is forced and vendor locked maybe? :)

    AMD Nano running 4K 60HZ HDMI 2.0

    Probably because some people who were complaining earlier that they would not buy a card without HDMI 2.0 support? If you haven´t noticed it yet, these forums have a lot of people who like to vomit all over others at every chance they get while guarding their precious BRAND for justice.

    Your cited 970 price is extremely low, I guess that´s some kind of special offer?

    Are you buying a Nano

    Two minds about this. Interested? Yes. But I avoid being the early adopter, no matter what consumer product it is. Heck, we are still finding about bad things in 900-series this far from the actual release. Probably not safe to buy anything before it´s gone through couple years of wringing...

    Dark Souls 3 annoucement at e3

    MP bar? Getting (bad) flashbacks from Demon´s Souls right away. :) As for the matchmaking... Biggest problem are the weapon upgrades. Game should match with soul level + highest upgraded weapon and armor from entire inventory of a player. So no twinks with +15 invading new players. Then again...
