I like how he's blaming me like it's my fault.  Did Stephen play the voicemail for you of what I sounded like?

Fact: he requested I say "War, War Never Changes."

$250 at Amazon.ca.  They run about $225 in the US, so that seems right.  At that point it's just brand preference.  I like Gigabyte stuff so I have that card (in 1GB form)

So what's your budget?  I'd grab an 7870 if you're looking around $200.  I really like those cards.

You have an X79 board, you can run whatever video card you want.  For you what matters is budget.
65  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Help a Yoda on: March 12, 2013, 03:24:54 PM
OK, yeah, the x16 slot is what you want.  So the best card you can get without external power is, as I mentioned, an HD7750.  It's not going to be an amazing card, but you will be able to run everything you want at decent settings and resolution. 

You can find them for under $100.

I can't see what that's plugged into.  Is it plugged in to a port the size of the port below it?

The reason I ask is that those are PCI-E x1 ports and the 6450 is the best card I can find that fits into an x1 slot.

However, if the slot itself is about 4x the size (a full size x16 port), you should be able to do any video card that doesn't need an outside power connector with your power supply.  That would probably be a Radeon HD 7750.

I won't get to play this until tomorrow, but this is out today!  Kerrigan!

Anyone else going to snag this one?

To quote Jeff Green (a former games journalist for years and now director of community at PopCap):

Lord British has a Kickstarter? The dude lives in a castle and has been to outer space.

I think I said "grinding" and meant a different context - I view most dungeon crawlers as a whole as "grinding" since they're almost entirely combat and exploration.  I didn't mean it in the "oh man I have to fight a bunch of enemies to get past the next thing".  In fact, EOIV has a pretty damn smooth difficulty curve, though things got really easy after I got subclassing - regen w/ active circle for an arcanist made it so I almost never died.

OK, I knew this point was coming, but I've finally reached my "OK, I'm done grinding and there's not really a good story in this game" point.  Almost through the third maze, my party is level 42 and I unlocked subclassing.  The game was quite fun while I still had a stomach for it, though.  Definitely worth the money.

I got my hands on the first hour or so of the game about a week back.  We'll have a preview up on the site this weekend or early next week.

Whenever I say, "Here's the thing."

InXile is Brian Fargo's studio.  They did the Bard's Tale PS2 remake and Hunted: The Demon Forge.

Does anyone know if you get bonus space credits or some shit for beating DS1 and 2?

You get spacebucks.  Which you can spend on MERCHANDISING.

The kids love this one.

So, I saw that this game was under 4GBs on the PS Store and decided to set up my second Vita card with my JPN PSN account. I get it installed, try to log in with my Sega ID, BAM, 1.5GB update..... Fuuuuuuuuuuu-

I guess I'll have to wait until I get a new memory card to play this game on the go. :(

Yeah, don't bother if you're looking to play PSO2 "on the go".  This game is fun, but being completely honest, it's the worst game ever for a handheld.  I have no problem with always-online for PC games, but the fact of the matter is, the Vita version 1) requires you to be connected to WiFi. Always.  2) will boot you from the server if your vita goes to sleep, so don't leave it idle or turn off your vita idle timer and 3) is better on PC anyway so why would you play it on the Vita if you have to pretty much be at home to play?

I dig the game a lot, but the Vita version is frustrating.
