    AMD Announces "Level Up with Never Settle Reloaded" Promotion

    Was going to wait for the 8xxx series, but this is tempting. Would a 7950 suffice for me? I play at 1920x1200 (sometimes 1920x1080) on a 27" screen. Or just get a 7970 and leave no doubt about maxing out everything :)

    Blizzard Pushes Diablo III Multiplayer Update

    I un-installed it. What I missed most was the lack of synergy between classes. To give one example, in d2 you could have a pally with concentration aura, another one with fanaticism, necro curse with amp damage...this made it ridiculously fun to chop through enemies. They didn't need to make...

    5870 owners - are you upgrading soon or waiting for 8 series or ...?

    This thing was a beast and still has a bite :) I've been using the sapphire 5870 for about 3 years now. Left it at stock. No issues at all. To my surprise, it even let me play metro 2033 (advanced dof off, everything else on) and crysis 2 with fraps at 1920x1080 on a 27" monitor. Last thing...

    Diablo 3 Beta

    I don't have the beta. I'm just reading the forums when I can. Something I loved about D2 was the synergies between different classes and aura stacking: For example: Paladin 1 = Concentration aura Paladin 2 = Fanaticism aura +Might Aura from act 2 hireling Necromancer = Amplify Damage...

    Where is Skyrim screenshot thread?

    I installed skyrim a couple of days ago and have done nothing but mods for the past couple of days (most of the top 100 on skyrimnexus and tweaks from [h] and that nvidia tweak page). The screenshot below shows what it currently looks like and I'm very pleased with the results. This is on...

    Skyrim Modding Megathread

    Hey all, I'll be picking up skyrim this week. Looking at the mods of this game is a little overwhelming , but I've been able to narrow it down by checking the skyrim nexus site as well as the first page of this thread. This is what I've come up with so far: (keeping vanilla feel as much as...

    Blizzard Pushes Out Diablo III Release Date Until 2012

    I'm not surprised, Blizzard games almost always come out later than expected. This gives more time to catch up on my backlog :) Because when D3 is released, my backlog will mysteriously cease to exist.

    Metro : Last night, looks...

    Killed the dark ones?? Looks like Last Light assumes you chose the default ending in metro 2033. The gorilla looking things at the end must be the librarians. People had a hard time with them. However, a fully charged volt driver or hellsing to the face works wonders :)

    THQ states "Metro Last Light to be the poster child for high-end PCs"

    I still can't beleive my 5870 let me play metro 2033 with FRAPS at 1920x1200. I had d3doverrider running in the background for vsync. As long as I had Advanced DOF off, I can honestly say 95% of the game was smooth. Yes, there were some slow/choppy parts like when you first meet Hunter or if...

    Metro: Last Light E3 Gameplay Demo

    Damn, that trailer was bad ass. I love Metro 2033...I mean I fucking love it, but on the ranger hardcore difficulty, if you get detected, you're pretty much fucked. So, I hope Last Light allows usage of more "loud" weapons, without it being your death sentence for the rest of the level :)

    What games are you currently playing from the Steam sale?

    My steam sale "damage" was only $5 for Aliens v Predator. I'll start it up once I finish Mass Effect 2. Because I'm a completionist, I have to finish a game completely before moving on. WTB more hours in a day :(

    Yes, I have been having issues with Netflix on the PS3 lately ( I have the 80G fat). As stated earlier, I've had to turn it off and turn it back on which seems to work most of the time. It's fine on the PC. It feels like all this started happening after the PSN was brought back online after...

    New RAGE Vid - Behind the scene at id software

    I haven't had time to read up on it, does anyone know how much of the game is driving vs. combat? I don't mind the driving parts, but I would prefer if it was something like 20:80 in favor of combat.
