Will there be an official Elder Souls guild?

January 13, 2014 - 01:06 PM

Self-explanatory. More pointed at David tbh.

 

I recall David saying that he wasn't interested a while back, after the time put into TRR or something. And that Elder Souls is aimed to be a help website rather than anything to do with a guild.

 

Whatever, just throwing it out there, whether it would be casual or have a level of seriousness, I'd be interested. Just curious because I'd be looking into other guilds otherwise. Guess there is the factor of Europe/America and different platforms.


iBuyPower Steam Machine - $499

Article link. Announced at CES.

 

I think this is rather ridiculous, IF the specs and prices are correct.

 

So basically, you are spending the same as an Xbox One w/ kinnect.

 

You get Steam OS - so all those benefits of cheaper games, sales and such in a console experience with Steam Big Picture - alongside the ability to go to a Linux desktop (Debian based, which is good) and still get that PC experience. Yes, I'm aware consoles have browsers and such, but its just not the same as a PC desktop environment, especially with Linux, extremely flexible and awesomesauce. It's also possible to get those console exclusives working on PC, but that might take some know-how, and not sure about the difference in methods between Windows and Linux.

 

As for specs - doesn't mention exact CPU or how much ram (which I can only assume would be 8gb), besides that very similar to next gen consoles. On par, maybe a bit ahead of PS4, I think. Xbox One GPU is definitely behind.

 

So basically, yes, €100 more than PS4, but is just worth it. Can't build those PC specs for that price on your own without some serious skimping. And that ability to upgrade parts if that's your thing. Probably will be even more models.

 

As for the Steam controller, I don't really know much about it, not really interested. If it actually works well, it could be quite amazing to get that console feel of a controller with a mouses accuracy. (Or so they have said)


Outrageous COD: Ghosts System Requirements Announced

October 24, 2013 - 03:09 PM

This has been confirmed by Activision.

 

Minimum System Requirements:


    [*]OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
    [*]CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
    [*]Memory: 6 GB RAM
    [*]Hard Disk Space: 40GB
    [*]Video: Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
    [*]Sound: DirectX compatible sound card
    [*]DirectX: DirectX 11
    [/list]

    These alone are very high for min. specs - Considering a GT 8800 (released in what, like 2007?) will run Battlefield 4, known to be a very demanding game, which I can't say the same for Call of Duty, at least up until now.

     

    It gets better...

     

    The recommended graphics card is a GTX 780. A fkn 780, you have to be kidding right? That's a $650 card, only released a few months ago. And that 40GB HDD space, people were complaining about BF4's 30gigs.

     

    This can either mean they somehow stepped up their game an awful lot without even getting a new engine (yep, still the tweaked Quake engine), or it's just so poorly optimized that these are just the specs. Could of course be all a marketing scheme.
