    You will need ~$650 bucks to match next gen consoles on PC

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 July 2013

    ethomaz said: tarheel91 said: That CPU is fine.  The Jaguar performs much worse per cycle per core. That's basically the same GPU as the PS4, and you'll be able to overclock it since you're not restricted to a tiny case with poor cooling. Just because the PS4 has 7GB of VRAM available doesn't mean it can/will use it all for graphics.  8GB RAM + 2GB VRAM should be fine...

    MS is using a Nvidia Titan in their X1 units at E3. Are they mis representing the X1 graphics.

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 June 2013

    It's not a Titan. It's a 680. Doesn't change the fact that it's much more powerful than the X1, and a completely different architecture. If they're showing off their games on something like this, they haven't even begun to port it over to a dev kit....

    Nintendo Direct: Better or Worse Than a Press Conference?

    Wii U GPU Type CONFIRMED! Custom AMD E6760!

    This is probably a fake. Nobody in tech support would be allowed to give away this info. It makes sense given a lot of tidbits of info we have, though, which makes this fake so enticing....

    Why does Nintendo limit WiiU stock and intentionally cause shortages, again?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 September 2012

    Jon-Erich said:The Wii shortages were explained. Nintendo had no idea what the demand would be like. You can't just "ramp up" production on something as soon as the pre-order results come in. It's a decision that has to be made months ahead of time, and the biggest selling time for a console is usually it's mid years, meaning that demand for Wii was going up just as Nintendo was struggling...

    Skyward Sword's control scheme too complicated?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 November 2011

    makingmusic476 said: The controls did take some time getting used to. Particularly: 1. The lack of a right stick for camera control. It's never been in a Zelda game before, but playing so many other third person games recently (like Dark Souls) had me missing that precision of control. 2. The moblins that rotate their swords horizontally and vertically. I can never seem to hit them...

    PS3 controller on PC Issues

    in PC Discussion on 07 July 2011

    If I do the same thing, Windows doesn't pick it up, but it shows up in the driver manager as already having the driver loaded. So then I go to profile, select X360 emulator, click enable, and I get nothing. Vibration test doesn't work, and nothing shows up in the game controller panel. The LEDs on the controller just flash quickly....

    PS3 controller on PC Issues

    in PC Discussion on 07 July 2011

    I'm trying to hook up my DS3 to my PC to play Assassin's Creed, but I can't get it to work. First time I hook it in, the PC recognizes it no problem (you can't use buttons, though).  I then go to use MotionInJoy, a 3rd party driver, and it says it successfully installs the driver, but when I go to the profile screen to configure the controller, it says it can't find any controllers? ...

    Are game journalist really that more competent than forum posters?
