Blacklist. Srs bizness. Let me give you some history to understand my extreme behavior:
First off it is my favorite series (runner up is Deus EX only due to lack of new games to play frequently)
Xbox console for Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory.....all ran flawless and I was fully immersed.
XP system with an 8800 that I added prior to Double Agent to be able to play it as I had no consoles. Game released broken in the box....patch came in 3 months later.....Money spent 200 dollars Immersion: Totally ruined
Conviction dropped and I was without anything adequate to play it on. After reading about the crap release for PC I bought an xbox 360 to play one game. The system died two months later. Money spent 400 dollars Immersion: Modest
Blacklist (uses TXAA from nvidia and they are working with Ubisoft on the title). I bought a 6970 for DX HR and got DX HR with it. Guess what game ran flawless on that 6970? Needing a new GPU and wanting to go back to EVGA and Nvidia as I loved my 8800...the choice seemed clear when the 770 came out. I was looking at the 680 prior as at that point all I knew was nvidia was the company Ubi was working with to optimize the game. The tomb raider fail would be what happens when AMD is chosen. AMD cards show corruption and Nvidia just plain crash.
I will not miss this game on release. If that means get my girlfriends 360 for a few weeks and play it on my dads tv then that is what will happen. That said I just dropped more than 600 (GPU and PSU) to play it on my PC maxed out. I don't want crash city or any other immersion breaking junk. I hate consoles but with a lot of games coming out soon that are not PC games and the terrible porting and support I don't know what to do. I just want to game.....like I did on the Dell. Seems everything that comes out is Skyrim level broken or at best a bit glitchy.
