PS3 Owners: Don't Buy Fallout 3 DLC, Wait for GOTY Edition

250°
291w ago - As you may or may not have heard, all of the Xbox 360 exclusive downloadable content for Fallout 3 will be coming to the PS3 this summer, thereby making the Xbox 360 exclusive DLC not Xbox 360 exclusive at all.

Timed exclusive? Whatever, that doesn't mean anything to me.

In addition, however, two new chunks of DLC are coming to both platforms, though the 360 gets it first... again. So you might think to yourselves, dear PS3 owners, that you've waited long enough and want to buy that DLC right away. But not so fast!

The DLC is only going to start trickling out this summer, the two new pieces actually hitting in the fall. As it turns out, a Game of the Year edition is also coming out in the fall, October to be more specific, and it's going to have all five DLCs in one package. If you've managed to hold out this long, you might as well just wait and get the GOTY edition.

As an expert calculator user, I can tell you that five pieces of DLC at $10 apiece is $50, and that's on top of buying the game in the first place. Trade that game in, however, (or sell it) and you'll likely make up the $10 difference. This gets you all of the DLC without taking up precious hard drive space, and it doesn't cost you anything more than if you downloaded it all separately.

Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition

293w ago - X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition Review by Shummyr:

Name of Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition
Publisher: Activision
Release Date: 5-1-2009
Genre: Action and Adventure
Player: 1
Buy/Don't: No (But makes a good weekend rental)
Overall Rating: 5.0 out of 10.00
Platforms: XBox 360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP and PC

This is a simple hack-and-slash game... it will take about 20 hours to complete. The camera is fluid but can be a tad bit jerky at times, other than that it's good.

The story is somewhat shallow and the flashbacks are frequent. The controls, however, are very well placed and easy to remember.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition) presents an excellent amount of challenges, and the achievements are strategically placed so that unlocking them coincides with relevant parts of the storyline.

It's also very neat how you can unlock old costumes and play with the classic costumes.

This game reminds me a lot of Wolverine's Revenge.. very similar if not a remake, with updated graphics and a new storyline.

The reason I would not buy this game instead of renting it is because I'm not a big fan of hack-and-slash genre (it's...
 

EVGA Releases GTX 275 FTW Edition, Faster Than GTX 280 FTW

50°
297w ago - EVGA released its fresh new Geforce GTX 275 FTW Edition 896-P3-1173-AR graphics card, which marks a significant achievement in the competitive GTX 275 lineup from various manufacturers for its superior clock speeds and its relatively competitive pricing.

Not surprisingly, the EVGA Geforce GTX 275 For The Win is officially the fastest GTX 275 card to date, with clock speeds of a 713MHz core, 1512MHz shaders, and 896MB of 512-bit GDDR3 memory at 2520MHz.

Unfortunately, this model does not come with double memory chips for a 1792MB configuration, but the frequencies of its GPU do bring up an interesting observation. When compared with the Geforce GTX 280 FTW Edition that launched in June 2008 at 670/1458/2430, the new GTX 275 FTW with the lower model number actually has faster overall clock speeds.

In terms of theoretical performance at factory overclocked memory speeds, the 55nm GTX 275 FTW gives roughly 141.12GB/s of memory bandwidth on a 448-bit interface, while the 65nm GTX 280 FTW gives 155.52GB/s on a 512-bit interface. It is also important to note that the 55nm GTX 285 FTW Edition expectedly still tops both models with roughly 177.4GB/s on a 512-bit interface.

Overall, it seems apparent that memory performance of remains linearly consistent throughout Nvidia's GTX 200-series...
