  1. A few things i'd like to say about the conversation above: Free review units != sponsorship: Sending a product to a reviewer is not like paying the reviewer. They usually cant sell the product either. They get sent the product in order to make a video and give their opinion. If they think the product is bad, they're free to say so. Of course companies like nvidia can sponsor Linus's videos, but that will not be a part of a review. It's either a pre-roll ad or product placement. Linus can't get away with lying about a product: He's not the only person reviewing it either. If the product is shit people will find out one way or another. Whether that's other reviews or feedback from consumers who bought the product. If Linus makes a positive review about a crappy product, people will find out and he will not get away with it.
  2. Game has been running very well so far. 1080P, High settings with normal textures and FXAA. Framerate is in the 50's most of the time. My specs are almost identical to the recommended specs: i5-4670, 8GB RAM, GTX660.
  3. They have just started sending out keys: http://blog.playfire.com/2015/04/gta-v-update-preload-redemption.html
  4. They posted this on Facebook 3 hours ago:
  5. Anyone not from The Netherlands probably won't get it so i'll explain. Chocomel is a dutch brand of chocolate milk. My avatar (taken from a tv commercial) is holding a can of it in his hand. Came up with it when i was drinking it and playing Halo.
  6. Would be great for Steam in-home streaming from bedroom pc to living room
  7. Yup, MP3 is unavailable. So i downloaded the FLAC . It's pretty awesome.
  8. I think it would be alright, but I'd wait for benchmarks before you buy it. It's a Ubisoft game, so you never know what the optimization is like.
  9. Bought there a few times. Completely safe!
  10. Only get a laptop if you really need the mobility for school, work or whatever. If you want something you can bring to LAN parties, just build an ITX pc in a Corsair 380T, Bitfenix Prodigy or whatever.
  11. I think i might be getting it sometime. I only played CoD MW2 & 3 on the Xbox 360. Got boring pretty quickly for me because i was constantly just walking around searching for someone to kill. And there were way too many killstreaks used. The new movement seems cool, maps look good and getting killstreaks seems to be a lot harder. Looking at benchmarks from LTT i think this shouldn't be any problem on my system (i5-4670K, GTX660)
  12. I get what you're saying. I still like playing AAA games but lately they are not really anything special that really gets me excited. Right now, there's nothing that I'm really looking forward to. There are some cool games coming, but nothing i can get hyped about.
  13. A lot of people didn't leave a comment then. But at least all my spare keys are in use now. Can i somehow close the topic or change the title?
  14. That makes sense. I'm on a 50mbit per second 802.11n connection. And other times Origin downloads at 3.2mbps (slower than Steam btw).
  15. This Alpha hasn't been fully optimized yet. It's something devs do late in the development process. So that's why. Medium settings 1080p seem pretty playable to me (GTX 660, 4670K).
  16. I do like that Origin sometimes downloads at 30 mbyte per second. Don't know how but it does.
  17. Still lots of keys left here. I guess Turtle Rock made twice the amount of keys necessary.
  18. Just like Origin, it's just a store with a bad friends system and it often doesn't work. It's just useless.
  19. Nothing wrong with your system. Probably just software not being optimized well. Not necessary to upgrade at the moment imo.
  20. Yes, but Hardline will obviously be more expensive once it launches in March. Don't think it will be worth the money (at launch) . Other than some gamemodes and gadgets it's the same gameplay as BF4.
  21. Hardline really felt like a standalone expansion to BF4 to me during the beta. And BF4 has been greatly improved in the fall update. And this is a good price for it, so i would just get BF4 and skip Hardline.
  22. I can definitely recommend Spec Ops The Line. The story is just amazing. The rest of the game is very regular though.
