and the second paragraph of your post is pretty much stupid. you don't want child molesters, you don't want homosexuals. what you however do not realise is that these two belong to a realistic and diverse medieval society, and CDPR aims at creating such, just as the society we live in. Either CDPR say they want their in-game-societies to be as realistic as possible, in which case they should include homosexuals as well as child molesters and other freaks, or they just create a fucking place like skyrim, with horribly sterile society. ›››
I should have been more clear. I don't want to see these types committing their acts. Implying that one of them is a homosexual is one thing. Implying that one of them is the town's whacko molester is also one thing. But having them carry out their actions graphically is something I would not want. I am fine with the straight, normal sex scenes that I have seen in the past Witcher games. I would not be fine with any guy on guy or guy on child scenes. The latter, fortunately, is something I know they would never put in the game so in that regard that is a moot point.
25.08.2013 @ 15:20I personally believe the game needs to be open ended and therefore, there should be little political correctness in the game. One thing that has irritated me over the Witcher in the past is that Geralt has always come off as being a "good" guy. I prefer games like Fallout and Skyrim where you can be as good as you want or as evil as you want. I would like it to where if I wanted, I could play as Geralt the racist, homophobic misogynist.
As a personal opinion, I would prefer to see no homosexuality in the game period. That is the same way that I wouldn't want to see some child molester in the game. I don't get off on two girls going at it and if I saw two guys going at it then I'd probably burn the install discs and delete the game forever from my laptop. Or rather, if I knew about it before hand, then I'd simply never buy the game.

ReptilePZ said:I wonder what the next Wii is going to be called. Wii U2?
But yea, I agree that the Wii U is getting a lot of crap thrown at it when it's actually a pretty good console - at least they're trying to innovate in some way (that actually works unlike, say, Kinect). ›››
I admit that Wii and WiiU are two of the stupidest names ever and probably as large of a reason as any as to why the systems get so much crap from people. Nintendo does fail to grasp certain concepts. They should have made achievements mandatory on the WiiU. Obviously gameplay is more important than achievements, but I admit that achievements have caused me to play some games longer than I otherwise would have. I know I never would have cared about collecting any intel in Modern Warfare if not for achievements being attached to it.

Thanks for the heads up. Weight doesn't bother me so long as it's a 17" laptop. I don't care for bigger and I don't care for smaller. I won't be stuffing it in my backpack or anything. Also, weak battery life isn't a big deal. I keep my laptop plugged in 99.9% of the time.

Guy N said:In raw processing power, the 7970M blows the magic smoke off anything but the 680M. If you are going high-end, there are these two and then everybody else. Some workloads will probably run faster on one, and some on the other. PhysX-dependent workloads work better on the nVidia card, and DirectX 11-dependent workloads work better on the AMD card. Most games do better on the 680M, but it's your call whether they do $533 better />/>/>/>
The 670MX is a cut-down 680M. Make sure you are getting the 670MX if you choose it; there is also a 670M (nVidia alphabet soup is delicious) that is not a Kepler at all but a relabeled 500-series Fermi. ›››
Thanks for all the information. In regards to the graphics card, I'd have to double check to see if that one brand was offering the 670MX or the 670M. One thing you didn't mention is how I pointed out that the 7970M has only 2gb whereas the 680M had 4gb. How much of a difference does that make for the card or is just a difference in brand more than anything (similar to how AMD processors used to run faster than equivalent Intel processors).
QuoteLucky you />/>/> My laptop's so old it says "Core" and not "Core 2". I like your screen name -- and 15-year-old Glenfiddich. Welcome, and enjoy the forums. ›››
I'm still undecided on whether I will upgrade or not. I want to, but as a student, it's not always easy to justify. Thanks for the welcome and yes, Glenfiddich 15 year is amazing. It's got a great taste and isn't horribly expensive for Scotch.
Saoe said:I suggest you check Sager/Clevo notebooks.
If you live in US;
-GTX 680m or 7970m for graphic card. both are almost the same in performance but GTX 680m cost around +200$ but its more stable.
-8GB RAM is more then enough, you wont see difference in performance at all. Rather use those 100$ on better CPU.
-SSD 120GB for OS, and 500GB to 1tb as 2nd drive is the best solution.
I am currently using Sager/Clevo for almost 2 years originally came with GTX 485m which was fast enough to run TW2 on almost highest settings but now I have upgraded my GPU to 7970m. I move around often and take/use my laptop at work.
I can sell you my 485m GTX if you want />/>
I had them all from Vaio's, HP's and even XPS 1710. Buy a desktop PC if you are going to stay at home. ›››
Thanks. I will glance at those links provided. I realize that those with a ton of RAM won't have much effect as games aren't created to take advantage of it yet. What I am curious though is if in the long run it's cheaper to buy a large amount of RAM now and keep my system relevant for another couple years than to upgrade computers every three or four years.
To all those saying just to get a desktop. I mentioned in my original post that I will not. I don't have the room for it and too often I am out of town. I don't always play games when I am gone, but oftentimes it's nice to have everything with me during Christmas break and what not.
