Does the PSU have enough juice(watts) to power all the hardware. That idiot :wink: might went all cheapo on that part.

Just watched Avatar (2D)...somehow I managed to avoid any reviews and knew very little about it. Was very enjoyable, though obvious what was going to happen fairly early on.

Should it be seen in 3D :?:

Oh yeah, that's a real problem when people don't take a few minutes to calculate the proper wattage they'll need to run their hardware! :P

I solved that problem by buying a 1050-watt PSU (My system could probably survive on, I dunno, 600?)

:P

you just didn't solve it. you got yourself a built in oven-o-matic 2000. 1050W PSU kinda overkill isn't it unless you got your machine setup with SLI or Crossfire. i got a gaming rig with only 750W and assure you i could bake bread inside this bad boy :wink: and have a nice heater at winter.

GoG just rebranded so they're no longer about selling just old games.

You can even pre-order upcoming games now.

GoG doing pre-orders seems kinda like the History Channel making reality tv shows.

That being said, Ax Men is hillarious.

So... what could cause an apparently working function to be returned as invalid in unknown circumstances.

Turns out, the problem was fixed by staring at it for long enough that it got ashamed of itself and decided to start behaving as a good function.

So... yeah.

In other news.

Good lord, what kind of person comes up with the plot and characters for Red Faction: Armageddon? It feels partly like it was made to sew together the levels and partly by going down a checklist.

I didn't exactly expect high-quality, and while the poor excuse of token female character I already expected, how can they not see the massive gaping plothole the final mission exposes?

I mean, seriously? Are you fucking serious? You're forced to live underground for years, have most of your community eaten by the Tyranids, but you had the ability to fix it all along? AND YOU FUCKING KNEW IT?
