Invictus. 8/10.

We had to watch it for my History Through Film class. The idea our teacher tried to instill in us was that sports can bring a divided nation together. That all sounds pretty cliche, and this movie did a mediocre job of presenting that, but it was still a decent movie. They could've done a much better job of presenting the rugby matches.

If I ever see a video card associated with a video game, it's Nvidia. They do a pretty good job of making themselves appear to be the brand to have.

@white said:

Mass marketing. The way I see it, ATI/AMD caters to the more tech-savvy crowd, where Nvidia has its fingers in every pie. The Nvidia brand is sort of ubiquitous and because of this ubiquity and larger user base, more support is given to the platform. It's a slippery slope.

Man, now I feel like a tech noob for having a Nvidia graphics card.

If you're flying, make sure John Drake isn't on your flight.

If you really don't know anything about computer programming, like I do, I would recommend Python.

I took computer programming last year and our instructor gave us the freedom to choose our own code to research and write on our own. I knew basically nothing about programming, so I chose Python. It's very simple, and you can do some pretty neat stuff with it. I ended up making a Blackjack and Tic-Tac-Toe game for my final projects.

But if you're looking to make games like maybe Angry Birds right now, Python probably won't help you do that. It's just a good start.

It does seem pretty irresponsible for a game reviewer to post a review of an unreleased game when it still could have potential problems.But if you're that worried about it, just don't buy a game until it's been out for a week.

It's probably because you only have 5 posts. It's Giant Bomb's version of hazing, and will continue until you accumulate enough experience on the forums.

Look awesome. But I haven't been able to get a beta key yet, and I don't even know if my system will run it yet. I can't wait for the opportunity to play it though.

My specs are:

CPU: E8400

GPU: GTS 250 (512GB)

RAM: 8GB

And it ran well on this machine. I never got a huge city going, though, so performance may drop when things get crazy. Either way, my guess is you'd be fine.

A 512GB GPU? No wonder it ran well on your computer.

Usually before I go to bed. It's incredibly relaxing to just sit down and listen to music.
