    Rogue Legacy has been released

    I saw this post and picked up the game. I love it. Well worth it. A DRM free copy, and a steam key. You can tell this game was made with the real love, care, and passion.

    Saints Row IV Gameplay Video

    It's like an elevated inFamous mixed with GTA. Looks very cool.

    UCLA Professor Lets Students Cheat To Learn

    Interesting read. Being the guy everyone tried to leech off in college, I would have been the one who lead the group, then offered to bring the paper to the professor, and just as I handed it in crossed everyone's name off the page but mine and watched them scramble to get another answer in...

    Playstation plus- worth it?

    The playstation plus section on the playstation websites contains the current offered free games. I wouldn't know where to find a list of all previously offered free games if that is what you were looking for.

    Playstation plus- worth it?

    That only applies to the free games. Any games purchased at a discount, other than 100% off or free, are yours to keep regardless of subscription status. But, that is probably what you meant to convey.

    Best thermal paste right know?

    While I tend to agree, if OP wanted nothing but scientific results he/she could have just googled/searched for reviews on thermal paste.

    First vid of The Elder Scrolls Online

    As mentioned several times already, all they needed to do was make a game that had co-op. Don't really want to play Elder Scrolls with tons of random people. I would however like to share my world with a few close friends. EDIT: I've also never had an urge to play ES in third person.

    EQNext" will be the world's largest sandbox-style MMO ever made"

    I'd go back to an MMO that could be played effectively in first person.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    At that point I would have just made it 1.5cm taller. Then four slots would fit and it would support mATX.

    Green Light Bundle

    They haven't made it onto Steam yet. The sale is to get the games noticed and their ranks up on Steam Greenlight, so they get put onto Steam. When / If they make the cut and get onto Steam, they'll send you a Steam code.

    Amazon PCDD Square Enix Bundle - Starts Oct. 14

    Worked for me just now, and each game on the list activated on Steam, including those OP wasn't sure about. Thanks.

    Each of Arkane's games have been a bit clunky and have had outdated graphics. There's nothing new there. That said, each of their games have been some of the best gaming experiences I've ever had, even with all the quirks, bugs, old graphics, etc.

    Dark Souls is on Steam

    I had no problem going back to the gargoyles and having them carry me back to Sen's Fortress. EDIT: Late.

    Dark Souls is on Steam

    If you've opened up the shortcut / bonfire right near the exit from the archives to the forest you can just run all the way to him. Sprint to the crystal caves, run down the crystal, turn, sprint around the Crystal Golem. Get to the invisible walkways, learn where they are, and just sprint...

    Sleeping Dogs

    I like the game very much so far. While the comparisons to GTA make sense, the story and such seems to vibe more with Mafia 2 for me which, content/time constraints aside, I absolutely loved.

    Dark Souls is on Steam

    When the game first came out on consoles I had the same issue: There is another path. At Firelink, facing the ruins, investigate areas between 3 and 6 o'clock.

    $29.99 - ASrock 970DE3/U3S3 AM3+ Motherboard at Microcenter YMMV

    The board isn't that cheap without purchasing selected processors, the 965 being one of them. Still a good deal if you need both, but you can't just get the board at that price.

    Substance. Does anybody remember what that means when it comes to FPS games?

    Pretty much feel the same way. The last shooter I played and thoroughly enjoyed the single player of was Battlefield : Bad Company 2. I'm not sure why, to be honest, as there wasn't anything particularly wonderful about it, but I did play through it three times in a row. Most FPS I can't even...

    Nintendo 3DS XL.

    They say it would fracture the market, but I still don't understand why they can't just force all games that pass through licensing to have a control scheme that doesn't need the second stick. Reject the game if it doesn't have the base control scheme. Then you don't end up with a divided...

    SilverStone Fortress FT03-MINI

    Nice. Now they need to make a super-mini that ditches the extra space for the video card, a la the mac cube.

    Games that can never be made again because of difficulty

    I can't describe to you the feeling of "beating" that game only to get to the end and have it pull that crap. Think you beat it and then it laughs at you and makes you have to start over with more, and seemingly faster, monsters. I've only ever beaten that game, completely, once. I don't...

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    Anyone find a set of monitors that work well with any of these monitors in PLP (Same vertical resolution when turned sideways, matching visible screen size)? Doesn't seem to be a common screen size and resolution any more.

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    Grabbed the Auria 27" 2560x1440 LCD from Microcenter today. No stuck/dead pixels I can find. The bottom right corner has a bit of backlight bleed, but is only noticeable on dark screens and is far less than the bleed on my other monitors so it doesn't bother me. I love the screen real-estate...

    Lowering droprates won't do anything to stop the economy from tanking when there isn't a constant stream of items being destroyed. It will just take longer for it to happen.

    Dragons Dogma

    It's not a totally broken bug as they did put some handling in there for in case that happens. Obviously they didn't completely prevent clipping through the meshes and falling, but it seems they at least handled what happens if you fall too far below the world, as the character appeared to...

    Game Programming

    This is true to an extent. It is just like any other programming if all you are doing is the programming aspect of it. But, in reality, unless you are working with a team of people, you are going to have to handle all aspects of game creation, which can be daunting. It encompasses a whole lot...

    If This Game Studio Collapses, Taxpayers Will Owe $112.6M

    I'm playing through KoA now, and it feels like it was meant to be an MMO, they just forgot to add the extra players. It plays just like a fantasy MMO, but with some twists to the combat and stat system. That is quite an investment for a government to make into the games sector, especially as...

    Game Programming

    I've been using XNA and C# for my side project and it's been a fun experience. It allows me to focus on the programming without having to get to in depth into handling the graphics, but still leaves enough room for growth where there's always something new for me to learn. I don't like how I...

    Why Infinity Ward's Chief Call of Duty Strategist Quit.

    Doesn't bother me if it sucks if he is doing something he enjoys and / or something different. I'd rather a game that took a chance and flopped than a game that didn't take any chances. Some of my favorite games were those that took big chances. As much as I've enjoyed recent COD, I can't tell...

    Why Infinity Ward's Chief Call of Duty Strategist Quit.

    If he wanted to do something for himself, joining an existing project wouldn't have scratched that itch.

    [HOT] Mount and Blade Collection Steam Weekend deal $7.50!!!

    If you go into it expecting that you would probably be disappointed. While it has some RPG aspects, it is essentially a medieval combat simulator. You have many different weapons at your disposal and can fight on foot or on horseback. There is also an overworld / city / economy management...

    EA rips off Warhammer models in C&C Alliance

    A lot of game companies outsource for models. They could have outsourced and this is what the contractor made them. It's on them to check if anything they take in though. As much as I dislike EA, I can't see an upper telling a modeler to just rip designs from another company. I can see a...

    Dynasty Warriors 4 (Hyper?) is the last PC game I've played where two people can play just using the keyboard. I'm pretty sure anyway.

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    You should be able to route the cable under the notch in the graphics card beside the pci-e slots. I've ran that cable there on several rigs and yielded a much cleaner look than putting it in front of the cards.

    Dark Souls Announcement

    Bindings won't be natural. They work for WoW because of the lack of necessary precision: timing a rotation is more important than getting in a specific position, dodging the enemy, and/or perfectly timing a riposte. Much of the difficulty of the Souls games comes from getting the timing of...

    Dark Souls Announcement

    The movement isn't as much an issue as the need for a comfortable mapping for the two left and two right attacks. While playable, I can't see modifiers being as natural as the four shoulder buttons.
