  1. If you're going to go with an SSD you have two options in my opinion... 1. A Samsung 840 EVO... I would spring for the 250gig (What I'm personally running atm) Since Samsung makes most of the chip sets for SSD's I went with this. 2. Corsair Neutron Series... These SSD's have gotten the best ratings out of any of the other brands... They are extremely stable and very high quality... Also, Nvidia just released that until the 26'th of November, they have dropped the price of their GeForce 780 video card down 150$!!! (EDIT: Also a lot of their other cards have had a significant price drop as well, not just the 780) Plus! If you pick it up in most cases you can get a free copy of the new Batman game, the new Assassins Creed game, and Splinter Cell... About 160$ worth of games all in all... This is a fantastic deal and I would jump on it before it goes away on the 26th... Just my opinion...
  2. Ok, I'm going to give my opinion on this game after playing for around 6 hours last night, if you don't like my opinion you're welcome to come to conclusions on your own. My first play through has been a bumpy ride, yet a very fun one. On initial log in you are placed in "Spectator Mode". Basically you can fly around the map looking at different things and checking out different real time spots. I have heard, yet it is not confirmed, that spectator mode is being removed all together. It takes about 3-10 min to spawn in as your character (keep in mind this is a beta test). Now I have quite a low end PC. (550ti and a 920 processor) However even with the setting on their lowest settings it is a visually appealing game. Very dark and dingy, GIGANTIC! cityscape. With falling buildings, highways packed with broken down cars and most everything covered in new growing foliage. Nearly every building is enter-able. which makes the map 1000 times bigger than it appears and it is MASSIVE! The creatures in the game are quite fascinating, reminding me of a mix between left4dead2 and half life. And they are quite dangerous. Get more than 2 on you and you're probably dead without a formidable weapon. Now I am not saying this game is without its problems, servers crashed constantly, some times if you would get stuck if you jumped onto something like a radio tower (this happened my first spawn) The enemies are sometimes bugged out, walking into walls and not target-able, and the camera shake left me a bit sea-sick after a couple of hours. However, for a lot of faults it does do some things exceedingly well. Now a lot of people are saying its "WarZ" all over again, and to them I say... Not even close! I played WarZ at launch and it had all of these problems AND MORE!!! Some differences between the two games are... 1. WarZ was released as a "Full Game" on steam when clearly it was still in alpha/beta. Nether, has been clear and concise with its audience stating this is early access alpha and there are many changes that still need to happen before it is released. 2. WarZ has a "Real Money 2 Win" in game shop, where you can buy weapons, ammo, etc... Nether does not! Anything you can purchase within game is cosmetic only! Which is nice... 3. The devs of Nether have been very forthcoming with the community. At first, Nether had the marketplace where you could buy weapons and ammo. However when the community heard of this, they spoke out against it, and the devs listened! They took out anything that was not cosmetic within the marketplace and I think that will help the longevity of the game. All in all, I played the game for around 6 hours, and I am happy I did! It has a lot of potential, the devs working with the players and community is always a reassuring thing, and I'm going to continue playing and hopefully this game becomes something that could be a high point in a genre plagued by bad releases and poor gameplay! TL;DR - Game was awesome, it is not WarZ! Quangle
  3. I'm sorry, I will refrain from posting my opinions from now on...
  4. It's not only that, I HATE the interface to get into matches... Why they can't make an interface instead of having to use the internet annoys the daylights out of me. Its just not my cup of tea... I've never like vehicle games, So I tried playing the Recon class, and it's just too difficult to get into, the mechanics are insane, trying to use a controller (primarily played console shooters) is ridiculous... It sucks that it's not my cup of tea because it means one more game MadCast is playing that I have tried and didn't like... But I'll keep trying, and when the game comes out that I can really get into (and that has full MadCast support) that's the game I'll play... But as far as BF4... Not gonna happen...
  5. Bought it.. Downloaded it... Tried it... Hated it... Returned it...
  6. After talking with you, I would recommend this... http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/1UwPm Its got the newest Haswel tech from Intel An 1150 motherboard ready for up to 32g of Ram, however 8-16 will be just fine. Plus it will fit in the case you already have. and an AMD R9 270x, which is that middle of the road card, with access to Mantel, which you'll use for BF4, can use up to 3 displays, for the dual monitors, and will handle a lot of the games you have to throw at it. One thing not included in here is your power supply, Haswel processors take a much smaller wattage than most of the 1155 chipsets that are in the previous gen cards and processors, so I would check with your friend and make sure that the powersupply is compatible with the chipset I've suggested here..
  7. Mahret and Varic, You can come and find me in TS if you wan't to know more about your PC needs. Budget is a big thing to know before hand. I just recased my system in a Corsair 260 with a new Evo 840 250g SSD and I'll never go back to regular hard drives. I would be happy to look at part picker with you and give my opinions on what you should be picking up. There are a lot of different variables to building your own PC... -Do you know how to overclock? -What space do you have on your desk? (or under it) -Budget -Availability of parts -Part compatibility with existing parts you have -How many SLI cards do you have? -Do you have a non carpeted surface to stand and build on? There are a lot more, but it's early and I cannot think straight at the moment. If you need help picking parts I would be happy to help you, but it would be MUCH faster in TS.
  8. My name came from a nursery rhyme, I first learned about it by reading The Fourth Bear. http://books.google.com/books/about/The_Fourth_Bear.html?id=WnMW3MiKaD4C (Link to the book)
  9. You can also filter the results to be only high quality... Which is helpful
  10. Well of course the Titan is going to win the benchmark, It was initially designed for supercomputers... Plus the 1k price tag... yikes...
  11. Sitting here listening to Jeopardy music and refreshing inbox
  12. I don't think I'm going to get any more consoles... If I wanted to spend 400-500 dollars I'd just pick up a micro MTX and a new processor with a SSD...
  13. http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/108086 - A link to the source So I am really excited for some of the new features revealed in this article. They aren't life changing things mind you, but I believe that square enix are listening to it's subscribers and it's forum posts and that gives me hope for the future! Some of the key features talked about in this article are... - Item Sorting Function - Update to the UI - Item level restrictions for Duty Finder - A salon feature to change the appearance of your characters Just to name a few! I am really happy about the changes they are making to quality of life of the game. The Item Sorting Function was something severely lacking in this game, especially when you have SO many different materials and armor for different classes and jobs. It can be quite annoying to have to not only dig through your inventory, but the inventory of your retainers! I think this change above all will have a positive impact on the game and a small step in the right direction for FFXIV:ARR The salon feature is also a fun little addition to the game, not only does it allow you to change any features you may not like about your character (Like how your over abundance of mustache sticks out from under your dragoon helmet). But also it allows square enix to put in new features and new styles for characters, like epic spiked mo-hawks All I can say is I am really looking forward to both "The Crystal Tower" and "The Wolves' Den". PVP is something that this game was sorely missing and it's a great addition for those a bit more competitive, or for those of us who are waiting around for the Free Company to recruit more members . All in all I feel like Square Enix are listening to the community and making positive steps to improve the game, but not taking away from its original appeal. The fact that they are not lowering the difficulty of content and keeping true to the feel of their game makes me very happy indeed! -Quangle
