Sold. Last season was the best the series has ever been (yes, even blood money) . And now it's broken from the shackles of episodic, so it'll be even better.

I'd argue locking content behind an arbitrary online connection In a single player only game was kind of the definition of shafting players.

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (5 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (6 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (6 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (6 Days ago)
