    They could have killed the last 0.5GB, just like they killed the eighth memory controller. They could have advertised it as a 3.5GB card. They could have delivered the exact build that they did...

    They are adaptations of the four book Sorcery 'Fighting Fantasy' set, I believe? I remember it being pretty much the most ambitious offerings of its genre. I found my old copies of the third and...

    That's simple. They will sell more by calling it 4GB instead of 3.5GB.

    Of course it sounds like the issue wouldn't exist at all if they hadn't intentionally disabled the eighth L2 cache and ROPs...

    It doubled in size, content, and eye-piercing-ness.

    Archive has three picture links (one large and two small), with white text on a translucent dark background bar. It spans the article width,...

    The worrying thing is that Nvidia seems to see this reduced performance as a positive thing.

    They don't see it as a mistake, or a fault. It is working as designed, and they find the performance...

    I would assume that it is referring to Ubisoft not actually making public a list of authorized sellers. They revoke keys and tell people to buy from authorized sellers, but refuse to say which...

    Maybe RPS should just stop dancing around the issue.

    On the assumption that you haven't noticed, Valve has added a third option to "Was this review helpful?" Now you can choose "Yes", "No", or "Funny".

    Because obviously that will solve the problem...

    FPS have something similar to Die Hard, which is to not get shot.

    No, it is lazy and/or bad storytelling. The cutscenes are not just ignoring, but rather outright contradicting, the "reality" of the game world.

    Dolphin's Wii emulation was built off its Gamecube emulation, that's part of why that emulator is so developed. The other reason is that it seems to have a group of people who actually care about...

    More than that. AFAIK, Byuu got all games working 100% accurately. That is a major deal, and a massive performance killer to an emulator. When bsnes was in development, there were people who hated...

    It is bad story telling. It isn't just the dissonance of some tank-like character being dropped with a simple attack. It implies that the people writing and making the game didn't care to do that...

    I'd always wondered a bit about that.

    The early press for Borderlands made it sound amazing in regards to variety. But when the game came out, most of the variety was smoke and mirrors. There...

    Co-op on its own can give life to a mediocre game, and the same is true for loot. Borderlands has both. It also has leveling, which can keep people playing games that they otherwise would have long...

    Hrm, I'd be as likely to class Borderlands as #2 as I would #4. It isn't much of an open world when access to every new area, and even different chunks within larger areas, is gated by story. But...
