installing it right now, and taking forever stuck at 47.36% its 2 disc.
-SSDNow Kingston 128GB V100
-Corsair 16GB DDR2 1600
...and so it begins.
Do you think it will sell out in the stores too?
Not if you have pre-ordered it? My EB Games has like 3 box worth of them, one for each platform and the boxes are huge lol. Smallest being PC, but not surprising lol.
Yeah, Digital Retailers can sell out of CD keys. So basically, even though they probably had like 100,000 CD keys, they managed to sell out, and not get any new keys in time. Impressive...
I can't wait to see the PC players online at once. Imagine if this trumped CS? CS is currently still the most played FPS, in terms of concurrent players. Up to 70,000 people playing at peak hours. Which is nuts, considering it's age, and being PC onry.
Whoa, hold up, stop riight there. I'm not saying this game deserves perfect 10's...no game deserves that, really. No game is perfect.
However, I just got done reading a review, and this stood out:
"Whether it's a grenade exploding without an indicator, a blast from an unseen enemy,"
So basically...they see no grenade indicator or direction of fire indicator as a negative? Must be CoD lovers here, cause that kind of stuff kills immersion. You should listen & look for a grenade. You should observe where you're running to, look at the buildings and your surroundings.
YOU DO NOT JUST RUN OUT, GET KILLED, THEN BITCH. It is not that type of game. It is not a super tactical / strategy game, either, but it is also not a run and gun type of game, you cannot bitch if you ran out into the middle of the open without looking around first and died. That is NOT a reason to negatively review the game.
so what's with ssd? seems like veryone ordering it? and what's with 16Gig is it only for people with ddr2 or people with ddr3 also need 16gigs?
SSD's have 0.01s response time, so basically loading times are chopped to zero in msot games. They're super fast, and don't get fragmented. However, they are super expensive. It helps reduce stutter, loading time, and pop in textures.
I recommend the Crucial 64GB, only 110$ right now, and has excellent performance.
The Damavand Peak Map so far looks awesome, I haven't played it yet myself, just looking on youtube.. here is a video I found, I love the base jump http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ld3IK7O1Br4
Phenomenal looking video game.. and.. OMG LITTLE BIRD..
And lol, the guy talking calls it Bad Company 3 *facepalm*
added to my cart and removed 1tb
stupid nearly 500mb update instantly after installing from disc.
that drive has really low write speed. this one is much better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233223
ohh holy crap! added this one as well
he must have sata 3 for it to be able to get near those advertised speeds tho. also 60gb ull find too little really fast. he should go 120gb at least. or 2 of those 60gb models for raid 0
what about in term of FPS does it help? i know it could help with GTA 4 or upcoming Assassins.
no wont do anything for fps.
Actually, in some games, it can at least help with keeping a constant FPS. As loading is instantly.
White, I read about that and Corsair is doing a recall on that series, seems they're dying very quickly at a high rate.
Let us add to that you don't get the full 60GB, like with the 64GB. With 64GB, you'd get roughly 59GB, with 60GB, you'd get 53ish GB. Enough room to install your OS(W7 64-bit fully updated is ~ 12-15GB) + default programs & games, you'll be hurting.
That extra space could help.
OMG this is just taking FOREVER TO INSTALL!:bang:
But I got it going at 5 megs a second, the suspense is killing ME !AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Played the campaign for a while. Game runs good and looks fantastic so far. If I didn't have a cold and have this headache I'd play longer. Got to play instantly at release since I pre-ordered on Origin.
take it easy man!
Not FPS, but smoother gameplay / less stuttering. Its most obvious in games with large open worlds which are streamed, like ArmA2, Gta4, AssassinsCreed.
And having the windows page file on the SSD helps a bit with OS responsiveness too, faster explorer etc etc.
