    ColonelChocomel got a reaction from nunya bus in deceptive reviews and shoddy advertisement practices being cracked down on in youtube re Machinima/xbox 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.

    ColonelChocomel reacted to Drumax in GPU Comparison/Preference For Assassin's Creed Unity   
    I'm currently waiting for Assassin's Creed Unity, & upon looking at the spec requirements for the PC version on the Can You RUN It site, it says 
     
    It's correct in detecting that I have the 755M but I have SLI in my laptop running.I don't think it's detecting the 2nd card. I would assume it wouldn't detect it anyways but I was wondering if my SLI cards would be on par with the recommended GTX 680 or the AMD Radeon HD 7970 or greater than, so that I can run Assassin's Creed Unity with no problems on max settings. On a side note, not having 60 fps isn't a big deal for me, I don't mind playing at like 30fps, I usually do or sometimes 40fps.
     
    I usually play Planetside 2 at 20fps but I think it's because my laptop is on a single channel 8GB. Anyways, thanks in advance for any help/advice.

    Just like Origin, it's just a store with a bad friends system and it often doesn't work. It's just useless.

    ColonelChocomel got a reaction from Thekidd in Is BF4 Still worth it?   
    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.
