AMD Vega - release date, price, specs and rumoursAMD Vega - release date, price, specs and rumours
Shriven Avatar
I just worry about Nvidia locking off driver development access to certain titles before release. Shady shit, but not having a working driver on launch day is putting me off AMD. That, and past experience.Reply
Dave James Avatar

The recent AMD drivers have been really solid and they've also been a lot better at getting launch day driver fixes out too.


I reckon if they can get the performance at a good price they deserve to do well.

If this doesnt meet half of the backers expectations the fallout will be biblical.

Too pricey for me at this time. The love for this game is infectious and I may get it in a few months.Reply

I'm sure it'll drop in price after Xmas. Pick it up when you can. It'll still be ace.

I could have also explained it as 'something only people with enough money to immediately buy a replacement do to their CPUs...' ;)

Tropico 5 review snippet Does Tropico 5 reward political manouvering?
Shifting which political factions had ascendancy over the various time periods was the only time I felt that politics were involved at any meaningful level.

I wouldnt say so. The levelling up process is just an invisible byproduct of doing things. I was barely aware of the level up system.

Total War: Attila review snippet How well does Total War: Attila portray ancient Rome?
The absolute chaos of the time is perfectly portrayed. The world is so up in the air and you cannot predict whats gonna happen. In my game the Elba (Irish) ended up holding most of Spain. The Vikings went on a crazy rampage through to the Ukraine. Britain remained in the hands of Romano-British upstarts and then to top it off, The Vandals just hung out in Egypt for the entire game. That was just the first game i played...

Style and longevity over Hyper realism and poor coding. They are great, but not in the traditional sense.

Smooth as butter. Almost a mobile game. Will run on a calculator. Window mode is perfect, UI scales with window resizing. Zero loading times.
