Godaddy VS the Internet

Nvidia drivers on Linux rival Windows 7 performance... but not in unity!
New Nvidia drivers...
GTX 660 VS 7870
- usually 2fps faster in Battlefield...
- about the same in crysis 2
- 1 or 2 fps slower in Deus Ex
- 2 fps or so faster in Hard Reset
- 3 fps faster in Just Cause 2
- 5 fps slower in Max Payne 3
- temps... load 61, idle 30
- cooler than 7870 and 7850... 7950 still wins overall... but it's pricey.
- overclocking can add 4 or 5 extra fps but the card runs close to 70's.... too hot for me
AMD 7000 series GPU's, more price cuts!
GW2 hits 2 million!
They made it impossible to pay to win
There is a 'gem' store.. You can spend IRL money to get gems to then spend on gem store, but you can also convert in game money into gems
So you wouldnt even have to spend real money to still get things in the gem store
Also gems are tradeable, so a good friend can just give you gems
They want to focus on making a quality game to get a lot of initial sales and that being their main in come.. ArenaNet believes companies that charge monthly become lazy with creating exciting content because they're making money anyway
Most of the stuff in the gem shop is aesthetic.. There are some consumables that will give you an exp buff or a magic find buff.. You can loot these consumables, theyre not exclusive to the shop, also they dont give an unfair advantage in pvp since everyone is brought to max level in WvW and in structured PVP you are autoequipped with PVP gear
I'm like a walking GW2 wiki..
Gearbox wants to make more Duke
