Thanks, Moob. Yeah, apart from that, my rig runs the game just fine and with my 760 I'm running everything on high, which is good enough for me. I was thinking of upgrading my graphics card, but...

I just watched the trailer and it definitely is one I'm going to at least rent. As much as it bleeds familiarity in terms of plot, I am a sucker for a good rom com. Daniel has proven himself as an...

Yup, what Epyon said in terms of shield bashing. As far as the gauntlet...I rarely if ever use it. It's just craptacular. In your magic tree, use the third ability (can't remember what it's called...

Gotcha. Yeah, I have my PS3 set to linear PCM and let my receiver do the rest. As far as Atmos goes, you're right, it should be easy peasy for them to implement it for games. Again, it's the...
