New Fury Trailers

The Fury "Cinematic Trailer" and "School of Life Trailer" are up on I've embedded the normal versions below with links to the widescreen HD versions.

There are also more and more reviews popping up everyday, but like I said I wouldn't even have posted that last huge set if somebody hadn't already gathered them.

Alex, our community manager and not to be confused with my bother (notice the lack of flaming staff & giant Asian dragon tattoo), posted a timeline for Fury on our forums that shows all of the upcoming dates and such.

oooo A big blank area...


The second trailer where the girl get's her leg broken. Is that kind of stuff really going to happen? That's pretty detailed.

My computer isn't up to the minimum requirements, and even if you guys are still optimizing, I'll be at the bottom of the barrel. I'm not really surprised to not be in the beta, but it didn't hurt me to apply anyway.

With Fury now being 3 months or less away, and my computer slowly dying, it is time to begin building my new computer. So, I'm curious about what you've been seeing for performance with different video cards. I'll be going with an 8800 GTS 320 MB card, unless you have seen a big difference in a jump to the 640 MB card (most benchmarks have put the 2 pretty close even though one costs quite a bit more than the other), or perhaps ATi's HD2900 XT or 1950 XTX is surprisingly good in Fury? Any data you have on this stuff yet?

I guess by the same token, I could be flexible on my CPU and motherboard if AMD is surpassing comparable Intels.

It saddens me to write this kind of thing. I was a big supporter of ATi and AMD, they just aren't providing a good alternative right now.

First thing you have to keep in mind is that I can’t really ready what I am typing. I just got back from the optometrist and he dilated my pupils. I am typing this in Word with the zoom level set to 500 percent and it is still blurry.

My general rule of thumb for hardware is the 2nd latest, high-end, most popular brand/model. I say 2nd because I want it to have been on the market long enough for everybody else to have had time to find out what is wrong with it before I buy it. But I still want it to be the latest & greatest enough that it will last the longest before needing to be upgraded.

Now recently I broke this rule and bought a ATI video card instead of going with my normal selection of NVIDIA. Never again. When I first installed the new drivers it they didn’t have anything up on their site telling you that you needed .NET installed. Then there was some .NET problem which escapes me at the moment but that was eventually fixed by a Microsoft update. The real problem is however I can’t run any 3D applications without the side of my computer open and fan blowing directly on the video card. I thought it would only be a problem during the hot Australian summer, but no it still happens when it’s cold. I even took it out of the machine the other day and used canned air to clean it to make sure dust buildup on the heat sinks wasn’t the problem. No, still overheats.

So what have we learned from all this?
Rule 1. Always buy the 2nd latest, high-end, most popular brand/model
Rule 2. Talk smart people about what falls into the category defined by Rule #1 with a note that I am not one of those people.
Rule 3. If I have broken rule #1, stay far far away from what ever I have bought.

Holy disappearing post Batman!

What happened to that latest post?

So, was that stuff confidential and you had to pull it? Didn't seem like much of a big deal (secret wise, not "Congrats Joseph!" wise).

WooHoo! I know something important...[insert maniacal laughter here]
