Million Dollar Baby is the most recent one for me. That might be the saddest movie I've ever seen.

Congrats to him for deciding to reward early adopters with a lower price. This is a totally fair and understandable business practice, in my opinion. But to assume that the games that people buy on Steam during sales are due to their getting "tricked into wasting money" on games they'll never play is completely and utterly ridiculous. That is basically his entire argument. So because some Steam users have un-played games, these discounts are inherently ruining things? And that's the basis of his decision to not offer his game for sale? I completely disagree, and I kind of feel sorry he feels that way.

@jeust: Would a crash from an overheat happen like immediately after loading up a game like it does for me? Not saying your wrong, just don't know.

Yeah, took the GPU out and games seem to play fine (much slower obviously). Seems like that's the only hardware that's messed up. Nice to know.

Recently my PC has starting "crashing" to the black "No Input detected" screen on my monitor. The PC stays powered on until I hard reset. This happens every time I start up a game or initiate any HD quality video playback.

A little internet research suggested a GPU issue. I tried a few random fixes, and the one that worked was to throttle my GPU clock from about 800 MHz down to 500 MHz with an older version of EVGA's precision X software. This stops the computer from crashing about 98% of the time now, but bumping that number back over 525 or so will crash it every time.

Obviously, I don't want to keep doing this forever going forward, and I was thinking about buying a new card on cyber monday coming up. Any ideas if putting in a new card should be enough to fix whatever is going on. I still don't really know exactly what the problem is.

@zeighty: The poll is for videogame buzzwords and terms. I would consider those to be "terms".

You're entitled to your opinion, but you're in the minority. Keep in mind HL2 came out in 2004....nine years ago. A lot that is expected of FPS's has changed since then. The combat and vehicle sections that you hate so much were mostly hailed back then.

That trailer doesn't remind me of much about the book. I've read all of the books in this series and while Ender's Game is an excellent book, I don't see how it translates to an interesting action movie. All of the "action" is tactical practice battles, which is very well explained in the book, but would absolutely bore a theater audience. This is a not a story better experienced via a movie adaptation, in my opinion. Ender is a great character, but he's way better developed in the later books.

I can't believe the final shot in the trailer...why in the world would they even hint at the book's major twist?
