I feel the same. I don't really like the Gamespot people, I find them to be a bit dull and boring (IMHO). Giant Bomb is pretty much the only "news" website where I watch videos. But the new feature doesn't bother me, I will just not watch it, in the same way as I don't watch Quick Looks for games I'm not interested in. Everyone do what they want, but I agree Alexis and Drew deserve way more airtime. I'd prefer a new feature just for them.

I was gonna preorder a physical DVD from amazon, since I like having a disk, but two free games thrown in, one being XCOM which I planed on buying at some point anyway, I just had to get that. Steam is the best platform around anyway, so I don't mind the new preorder scheme. Just only preorder games you are hopeful will be good, bad games aren't worth it despite the awesome bonuses.
Im currently using an Acer P243W and if there is any non-white content on screen, it starts this high-pitched buzzing noise. I'm afraid it might be racist.
If I open up a new browser window where the screen is completely white, it goes away, but it buzzes a lot on the desktop or this webpage for example. I found someone with this exact problem online, but the only answer to his forum thread was to take it back to his dealer, which I can't do, because I bought it used.
Is there anything I can do, settings-wise? I read about how changing monitor refresh rate may help, but don't know how...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Guys, Crysis 3 runs on lowest settings only at 30fps on my Radeon 5850. I'm thinking about getting the Titan so I can play it at 60 on Ultra. Am I done messed up? Not sure if I should get that beast or maybe just a 680... Don't want to upgrade again anytime soon, but would still like to play everything on max, since I'm just a big fat graphics whore...
Edit: The card is the weakest part of my PC, the rest is top notch and would easily be enough to handle the games....
I plan on buying both next generation consoles and have put aside about 1000€ for it (about $1400), but I'm hoping to also get some games out of that money. So as long as it stays below $600 each, I'm fine with it.
I'm lovin' the look of the new site, but I've run into a couple of pretty severe bugs which make it unusable to me. I'm running a Windows 7 PC and the newest Safari 5.1, and I haven't had most of these bugs in Chrome, but it's pretty broke in Safari.
1. Video playback is completely broken. Going in fullscreen in Streaming is just impossible, it changes the button to fullscreen but doesn't actually do anything. Often Youtube links go to the Youtube home page instead of the proper video link. Progressive goes fullscreen but results in a video that looks like this:
When going back from fullscreen from any mode the site breaks and reloads, resulting in a loss of playback position.
2. Text is pretty messed up, somehow the spaces are missing.This happens almost everywhere, in all of the titles and even the Coming Soon box. It looks like this:
I hope you guys have the time to fix this, I like the work you've done, and am really sad I can't use it right now.
Yeah, I'm also hoping for an update, since I like the app a lot, but it's not primarily his fault, since the new site is using a slightly different API, which also causes the official Boxee, etc... clients not to work atm. Dave said it will be fixed soon, so we can hopefully use Video Buddy again in the coming weeks.
Yeah, I would definitely watch that too! First was really funny and cool.
How did you guys place your PSU? My new case has it placed on the bottom, and now I'm unsure if the fan is meant to go up or down. The case has a little filter so it can filter the air coming in to the fan, but the web suggest having it facing up. Lots of different opinions though. What do you say?
