108w ago - Today Game Director Nate Fox at Sucker Punch Productions has posted up a new inFamous 2 video dubbed The Beast is Coming to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Here at Sucker Punch we're tired. We're whipped. Game development is a sprint. You run as hard as you can, then keep running.
The problem is the goal line sometimes move mid-race. When you set out to make a game you sort of have an idea of what it'll ultimately be... but that's not what it ends up being. You only know what you've made once it's done. Like you guys we experience the game, the real game, for the first time at the end of the road. And it's exciting.
It's crazy to be playing the game and forget that you made it because you're busy ducking an RPG rocket. You know that feeling you get when you actually dodge in your seat? Get that all the time.
Cole and his friends have stopped being polygons and actors and have become real people. And it's this reality that makes today's post cool. Now that we're so, so close to being done we can finally really talk about the "Big Bad" that pushes the whole story forward.
What's the Beast, you ask? Like a meteor from outer space...
240w ago - I am a huge PC gamer. I don't necessarily have the most powerful rig to run the latest and greatest games with all the bells and whistles turned on, but it serves me just fine.
However, there are some of you who will stop at nothing to have the ultimate gaming PC. For those people I present to you... the nVidia Quadro FX 5800.
What makes the nVidia Quadro FX 5800 so awesome, you ask? Well, for starters it has 4GB of onboard memory, and has a bandwidth of 102GB/s.
Or to translate: It's the most powerful graphics card on Earth.
So how much do you think this bad boy costs? $400? $500? $800?! ...no. Try $3,500.
Yeah, $3,500. For $3,500 you could buy a whole computer -- and a damn good one, at that. But, if you have the money to burn (and I mean that literally) and you want to see if a graphics card that was designed for medical computers can handle Far Cry 2... why not?
Note: I know it's not a gaming card... It's a graphics card designed to handle precise rendering, and is used heavily in the field of medicine. Usually on those 3D CT scans.
