you know that service they have over the internet where you can play full games streamed over the internet
guess what's reaching the UK --> http://www.game.co.uk/webapp/wcs/st...&storeId=10151&cm_sp=onlive-_-topnav-_-onlive
oh i've know it's been coming for ages, this is just the first time i've seen it advertised on a major site, i might have to look into this, no more hardware upgrades sounds like a nice idea
with lag and substandard image quality as a by product
this has been in the pipeline for at least 2-3years already. but the thing is, its plagued with latency problems. Bit-tech.net done some sort of preview of it way back and listed it as one of the most over hyped technologies to date due to the slow uptake of it.
to think they used to call onlive 'The future of online gaming'
i've already used it, lag meant i could only play strategy games
then again i was playing on a US server so the ping time was like 200ms, it could work well if you have fibre optic internet though
But the reason i'm going on these sites, can anyone reccomend me a game, it's been 6 months since my last purchase and i'm finally running out of things to play through
Deus Ex: HR
maybe when it gets under £20, till then, anything cheaper?
i've also heard mixed things about it, some people i know saying it was brilliant, some people saying it was crap
EDIT:I got this earlier but it's still downloading http://store.steampowered.com/app/36630/
EDITecided to play a game called final fantasy X for the playstation 2, i've never played a final fantasy game before, but from the first 20 mins of gameplay i've done it looks to be good
i still need to find a new game though
Deus EX HR is good, i dont know how people can call it shit. Well worth the price i think its about £25 on PC. Cheesy you played Witcher 2 yet? I thought it was pretty decent. Other than that save your money lots of good stuff is coming in a month or 2.
no, no witcher 2, i've been thinking of getting that though, it's on special on steam at the moment
Apparently Deus EX HR Has rubbish graphics, apparently the colours for most of the game are black, brown and yellow, and they completely forget about the rest of the colour spectrum (kind of like call of duty where the colours are black, grey and brown)
I installed that new Ram in the laptop and it's seen a boost in capacity and speed, and now it can actually do more then 1 thing at a time
Jesus Zombie Christ! RAM does that?!
really?, i thought it would act as a second battery!
but seriously windows 7 just works so much better with 6gb of ram
I am sick of this card, even BC2 is freezing and artifacting like shit, i might just RMA this piece of shit
The GTX570, it has been nothing but trouble since day one
you should get a GTS 250, worked perfectly since day one
i know you guys didn't like onlive but they've just launched now and they'll give you any 1 game for £1 when you sign up
i'm thinking deus EX HR for £1, i won't pay £30 for it but for just £1...
going to get some demo's and see how the uk version plays
Gonna get me the EVGA OC 570 with the aftermarket cooler, feel like a change, hope the problems are just with yours lol!
I'll gladly have your 6950* if you're replacing it.
A colleague just bought a MSI 560 Ti and his is fantastic, I'm very jealous of the cooler.
Where have you been hiding tatty??? I havent seen you in weeks.
We all thought Mossad got the drop on you while you were nappin and had you gagged and tied to a chair in some damp cellar somewhere having flat bits of bambo shoved under your toenails.
I was like....No!! this is Tatty!! Hes like chuck fucking norris of TPU! no underground secret militia with a million pounds of alqieeeeeeeeda money is every gonna get the drop on him!
I tried a few trials, connection was fine and I'm on wireless.....Graphics were shocking though, made me proud to be a PC gamer who plays at max settings.
Console players will not notice the difference
Yeh, that's a point... I hope this sort of thing doesn't kill off PC gaming or, if it does, that they can offer a high def, full settings version. Blurry textures kill me!!!
at least not until the next generation consoles come out at least. then they will be like "WOW!!! this looks facking amazing!!!!1!" but we would have already moved on with AMD 8 or 9 series with graphic cards
