Is this because of Bat-nipples?

But like, really, out of the billion or so people that apparently saw that first Avengers movie, how many of them actually thought "But it's not really a proper Avengers movie until they get Spider-Man in there"? How many people actually had any idea that he was missing? How many people actually give a shit that they included Hawkeye and Black Widow? They're fine movies, but at a certain point it just feels like they're preying on a hollow sense of half-formed nostalgia people feel like they should probably have for superheroes, even if they know basically nothing about any of them.

The answer is no-one. However, if they said, "HEY! SPIDER-MAN IS IN THE AVENGERS!" they would sell even more tickets.

Indeed. So like, fuck it, put Hugh Jackman Wolverine in the Avengers. Put Groot in the Avengers. Just go all the way.

It's not about selling more tickets, it's about extending the lifespan of this cinematic universe they've built. Because it's only a matter of time before it comes crashing down, Marvel's entire strategy now has to be to make it to Infinity War before it all collapses, or else they'll be left holding a pretty huge fucking bag.

To us, yes. To Marvel? Probably not. They know this wave is going to end sometime, and that people will move on to something new, and they want to milk as much money as they can out of it before it does. They have made some fine movies, some of the best in recent years, but let's not pretend a big company like Marvel with millions of employees is about artistic integrity.

@spoonman671: Pulling a trigger on a real gun is an analogue action. The effect might be digital, but pulling the triggers on the controller mimics a real gun much more closely.

Flight sticks have similar triggers for fighter planes both in real life and in games, because it feels better and provides more control. Also placement matters, the triggers are placed in locations that are much more comfortable than bumpers.

This. Pulling triggers on real guns is analog. However, the action cannot be imitated 1 to 1 on a controller, obviously, due to a number of reasons. For example, pulling the trigger on a gun is way more stressful and exciting than pulling any trigger on controllers. Due to this, and other factors, it would never feel the same.

Might just be the childish Norwegian in me, but Suge Knight is a really funny name.

it's pronounced 'Shug'.

i've always found it really annoying how he spells it. everyone should just start calling him 'Surge'.

Oh really? I've literally no clue who he is.

Nor should you. it is at best an Americana type thing, though I suppose Europeans into the genres/world-view he presented just might. He always seemed to be a dick to me. Living the gangsta dream, I guess.

He's a fucking idiot. He is the Jose Canseco of rap.

Well, Jeff will certainly have something to talk about next Bombcast.

You could say he has a few topics to run over.

I'm sure Jeff will be firing on all cylinders when he hits this topic.

He might just hit and run though.

No, it's his expertise. I expect he'll give a killer rundown.

Buckle up for this Bombcast, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

I suspect Jeff will run down and kill a person using his car on the next bombcast.

Way to slam the breaks on this quote string..

OH! COLLUSION!

@cirdain: I meant the GTX 850M or 860M. I have the 850M 4GB which is about the same strength as the 860M.

Does anyone know how the game fares on an 850 4GB? (Or an 860, which is roughly the same)

Or is there any site that does specific GPU performance tests?

Reducing the FOV resulted in an almost stable 60fps outside on my 970 and I didn't seem to noticed to much of a visual drawback.

You had to turn down the default FOV to get a stable 60fps on a 970?!

Oh, Techland...

@mezmero: I want Brock to make a video and say "I DID IT. FOR BENOIT." All Rikishi style.
