Seriously? Second page and no mention of Nier yet?

As a 6850 owner, I find this hard to believe. Unless your friend is always trying to literally max out every game he plays, there is currently not a single game that a 6950 should have trouble running, especially when I've had no trouble running any game with a 6850 (a significantly slower card). I have a friend who is still on a 5870, which is fairly equivalent to a 6950, and he still plays everything just fine.

Going to admit that's possible - not max out, but at least in playing in high/very high settings. In any case, I don't think a Radeon HD 6950 is a wise investment at this point. If he buys one now he'll most likely end up feeling the need to update sooner than he would have if he got an HD 7000 series card. Computer upgrades should be built to last, without having to be upgraded every 2 years. I'm really not sure it would be an economical decision in the long run.

If he is on a budget right now though, I suppose he will be fine for the moment. However, if the next generation of consoles brings a graphical leap with it, an HD 6950 might start to feel old as soon as next year.

I wasn't recommending the card for purchase. Obviously, it isn't going to be a wise choice (if they even still sell them) considering the current selection of cards from both AMD and Nvidia at roughly the same prices the 6950 used to be sold at. If I were to buy a card right now, I'd probably prefer to not go lower than a 7850 or a GTX 660 (but then I also wouldn't go much higher, I tend to stick what gives me the most value for the money).

I was merely pointing out that you're perhaps a bit too dismissive of the card's performance is all.

@Demoskinos: If you're going to upgrade your PC you might as well buy this game for that platform. This game has some seriously beautiful graphics.

The Radeon HD 6950 is already a bit outdated, and even though it's not bad it'll feel pretty much like your Radeon HD 5570 does now within a year. The most recent generation generation of AMD cards are the Radeon HD 7000 series. The Radeon HD 6990 is still a beast of a card though, and better than some (or even all) 7000 ones.

The most recent generation of nvidia cards is the GTX 600 series.

This is pure misinformation

a 5570 is a $25 facebook games videocard and will in no way play DMC

a 6950 is a high end play everything out there videocard.

the two are in no way comparable.

when comparing videocards, the first number means almost nothing other than how old it is, that second digit is where most of the action is.

From experience, that is misinformation. You're just wrong, and I know this for a fact. A friend of mine just had to upgrade in order to play the latest games smoothly. The graphics card wasn't being bottlenecked either, since he has a pretty decent i5 CPU (not sure which model, but no way it bottlenecks a 6950).

So yes, I figure that within a year a Radeon HD 6950 will feel fairly outdated.

is the story really that amazing? Because if it is then i will get it. but im worried about getting bored.

It's not amazing, it's just really weird, but in an enjoyable way.

well i played Nier, it had kinda meh gameplay/mechanics but the story was weird and i loved it for that. When i think back on that game, i have found memories.

I personally enjoyed BD's story as an odd look into how a Japanese development team approaches non-Asian cultural representation. I would consider it borderline racist if I thought it came from malice rather than lack of knowledge.

Well, the deed is done, I bought it....

I thought it was a great game. For $6 you really can't go wrong. And if you liked Nier and could overlook its shortcomings, there is no reason you can't do the same for this one too.

I will lose faith in humanity if The Walking Dead doesn't win 50% off in the next Community Choice.

Deponia is a better adventure game.

That's definitely...an opinion to have.

Well, it is in both terms of puzzles and visuals...

I haven't played Deponia, but having seen enough of it I cannot imagine a possibility where I'd agree with this opinion.

Also, adventure game puzzles generally suck anyway, so I'm glad they kept those to a minimum in TWD personally. Definitely not a point against that game.

I'm really on the fence about Darksiders 2. I loved the first one, but I haven't heard the most positive things about the second one. Is it worth the 13 dollars?

13 dollars, yeah I'd say so. But for what it's worth, I bought it at full price, day one, as a big Darksiders 1 fan, was quite disappointed and couldn't bring myself to finish it, so...

Same here, except I got it for ~$20. It was one of my most anticipated games of the year after playing Darksiders last year and loving it, and I just couldn't play it all the way. Lost interest about half way through.

It's just too damn repetitive, tedious, badly paced and just plain uninteresting. Don't waste your $13.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with it - may look at upgrading the PSU if it's deemed a necessity. I thought 650W would provide enough power, but if not I can always just shell out for it, given the inconvenience.

650W is more than enough for this build.

@Cincaid: You can buy it on Amazon and activate it on Steam.

http://www.amazon.com/Warner-Bros-Digital-Distribution-Scribblenauts/dp/B00A4MWX04/

you cant gift it to other countries, so im pretty sure that wouldnt work either

Do you mean it wouldn't activate on Steam or what?

I mean that for now its region locked. I guess you could get around it with VPNs and shit, but not only is that frowned upon (and against the TOS), its certainly not worth the hassle for any 1 game, let alone Scribblenauts

I'm not sure what you're on about.

I've activated many games on Steam that were blocked for me on the Steam store itself, but available for purchase on other services. No VPNs, no nothing.
