EA showed a 30 second teaser for SWBF3 at E3. No release date as of yet. I'm guessing it wont be until at least next summer.

DICE has their hands REALLY full....like really full.

 

Three of the most anticipatged games are being developed by them. With two being developed at main HQ.

And when those games are terrible because DICE had too much on their plate, I will blame EA for their continued stupidity. All they care care about is money and releasing quality games is no where to be found on their priorities list.

It's kinda weird though. They had years to release M.E 2 and ST BF III

 

I think that its releasing right now for a reason. To cash in on the buying spree of new consoles. But I think that more importantly, so that the games can 'really' be played. Not on the 360 or PS3 with crap hardware. But on something that can really do it justice for people. The Xbone and PS4. 

 

All 3 games are expected to use Frost Bite 3.0

I hosted a server running mod maps but after an hour I was still all alone. I guess not many people still have mods installed for the game.

 

I can't say I'm surprised, because all sorts of classic FPSs that old and even older still have a thriving community.

 

People still play the classic Battlefield titles (BF1942, BF:Vietnam, BF2, BF2142), people still play the original 1999 Unreal Tournament, people still play Starsiege: Tribes, so on and so forth to this very day. It's actually not difficult to find several fully-populated servers, even the 64-slot ones.

 

Unfortunately, I don't have SW:BF2. Never did, though common impressions were that it was a great Star Wars take on the Battlefield formula. I'm guessing they all saw that Star Wars BF1942 mod and realized the market potential. (And now you're all telling me that there's a third one, and DICE of all developers is behind it...funny how things work out sometimes.)

Nvidia's newly released picture and post

http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2013/06/13/seven-reasons/

 

 

Is like Including Souls, Beats and etc headphones in audiophile survey's of whatever.

 

I wanted to see a source on that at first until I realized where the numbers came from

 

The PC Software reveneu section includes Facebook games like Farmville, training simulators, and any light game on the 'PC'.

 

The development section is easier to understand. I can definately see that there are 4X more PC games than console ones. There are a lot of indie devs of course. Most don't see the light of day

AMD just came out with this a few hours ago.

 

Word of warning. This is the marketing dept. I'm sure the engineering dept would have a few 'if's', 'butts', 'in what situations', and what not. But just enjoy this as something the marketing dept came up with.

Asian mobo makers are generally the ones to have beautiful and well endowed booth girls at events. AMD? Haven't seen them yet lol

hahaha awesome video, it's funny they use Farcry 3 as a game that "Plays best on AMD" considering how terrible of a port it is. 

I also can't wait to see what will happen to the whole Physx program once all the developers will be working with AMD powered consoles.

A lot of PC companies are right now quoting EA's ignite engine release incorrectly or just ignoring what they are saying.

 

First of all, he said the majority of PC's. And also included that he meant mainstream PC's.

 

World of Tanks. One of the most popular F2P games has stats on what the majority of PC's run in terms of hardware. They put it at the mass 80+% majority running that game on intergrated graphics etc etc.

Speaking of Ignite it looked awful on the E3 presentation. I wonder why they showed it particularly the facial animations was just horrendous?

I finally got that GTX 480 today...and it's just the kick in the pants my desktop needs! That 8800 GT needed a rest after five-and-a-half years.

 

It still can't really max out the new games (or Crysis) without taking too much of a framerate hit, but at least everything that used to run 1280x800 low details can now be safely raised to 1920x1200 medium-high details and still maintain a playable framerate. Enough to tide me over 'til the next big build, at least.

Why not just upgrade to a new card?
