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..

Missing the link to the Baldurs Gate 2 mod for Dragon age.

You guys seem to really have fun making these videos which really makes them 100x better *thumbs up*, for the length of the video it almost feels like I have friends...I mean, more friends than I normally have <_<, >_>,

Regarding that rapper who died, he wasn't the one driving, he was just a passenger. Also, YOLO is pronounced "yo-low" not "yellow". The term was popularized by rapper Drake, nothing to do with Jersey Shore. But yeah, these guys were really stupid. It was just a matter of "when" not "if" they were going to end up killing themselves. I don't really have sympathy for people who die at their own fault. The rest of my post is completely unrelated to these guys who died.

 

Logan every time you talk about mainstream culture or society/people (console/mac users, people who watch/listen to mainstream music or TV shows, etc.) you always make them out to be really stupid, but most of your average people aren't that stupid. It's just that it's the stupid ones that get talked and reported about the most so it seems like that's all society is. But I think if you actually took the time to sit down and chat with so-called "mainstream" people/sheep/what ever you want to call them in real life face to face, I think you'd find most of them to be not much different than yourself. We spend way too much time judging people and not enough trying to understand them. The more we see people as "different" from ourselves, the more we will segregrate each other and be ignorant of each other.

Seeing people as different and being ignorant of the differences I think is one of the biggest reasons why things like racism and sexism exist.

I've met thousands of people, some I may have talked to for just a few days, some for years, some may have been my best friend, good friend, girlfriend, some I had heartfelt conversations with, whether online or in real life. Whether they were poor, rich, "beatuiful", "ugly", cool, popular, emo, gangster, prep, bullied, gamer, white, black, asian, from the other side of the world, straight, gay, bi, young or old, or any combination of any adjectives, I always tried to be understanding of them and learn why they are the way they are. Basically, I'm open-minded and the biggest thing I learned is that we're all really not that much different from each other.

So then why can't we all accept each other? Because we segregrate each other based on our preferences and we segregrate each other because we are ignorant of differences.

Wow, I went way off topic there. But I just wanted to say all that because I get the impression that you, and you're not the only one, are ignorant of people and things you don't understand. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's just what it seems like.

This is something strange I've noticed, even though it is irrelevant. It makes you wonder... Could the cyberpunk culture be closer than we thought?

Hey Logan, can you set a time when the GoldenEye source server will be on-line. I'm really looking forward to playing with you guys again.

We're currently trying to resort the server's intermittmint crashing issue, thanks to the DayZ server. We'll get it up soon, because I also want to pwn people on GE:S (and ranting).

I preordered DNF sometime around 2000. Lost the receipt, so I never got to try to cash it in. Seems I dodged a bullet there.
