So much hate, but they are still an added bonus. The last gaming bundle is going to be hard to beat considering they pretty much were able to bundle some of the most anticipated games of the year into one deal.

If they do FF14 for a package they should include a month of playtime (if they don't already) and Thief looked pretty good. xD
Not as good of a line up as the previous packages, but not too bad, they obviously aren't going to do BF4 in a pack until after they dig themselves out of all their money they will be making on release.

Rest of them are alright at best.

Well no titles I would sacrifice Physx, Smoothness, Shadowplay etc. for. Maybe Thief and Castlevania will be okayish~

Not the jaw-droppping bundle like last time, but Thief and Soul Suspect look like they could be really good.

I don't want to sound like an AMD zealot but afaik the smoothness has been fixed for some time now, and what do you mean by Shadowplay?

I have no idea what games PhysX is actually good in? I have no idea why you would make a decision off of what GPU to buy because of a gimmick (assuming there isn't some game that it's awesome in that I've never heard of).

Yeah I missed that. Although some of these might be in the next Never Settle? It wouldn't make sense to not have the games that you're including with your GPU to not be optimized for that same GPU.

Although now that I think about it, I kindof doubt that Pirates 101, the long anticipated sequel to Wizards 101 (/s) would be in a game bundle

PhysX.. aside from borderlands, it's nothing but a gimmick. Smoothness was never an issue on single cards. Maybe if you squinted you'd see it during gameplay. Even then it's been 'fixed' in recent drivers. Shadowplay is another gimmick - Use Dxtory which records with little to no performance loss as well as lets you choose what codec to use.

Basically, you just listed all the gimmicks of Nvidia's marketing.

EDIT: Fixed post. This isn't a bundle

Smoothness is only an issue in dual gpu scenarios. Shadowplay is a new Nvidia feature where the card uses the onboard decoder to record video for you, something along those lines, haven't read more than a headline.

Yep, I assume so too. Never Settle is not mentioned whatsoever in either OPs source or the blog post.

Gaming Evolved just means the game is optimized for AMD right?

Edit: Just finished the article as I posted it and it was in my face:

Titles listed as part of the Gaming Evolved Program are akin to those that launch with Nvidia's The Way It's Meant To Be Played logo. The Gaming Evolved stamp represents AMD's collaboration with game developers to help deliver the best possible experience for gamers and ensure the newest titles run smoothly on AMD hardware.

AMD has had this feature for sometime.

So far, it has been titles that use optional DirectX features that are generally supported by both AMD and Nvidia. There is a high chance Nvidia might out perform and look better than AMD on some Gaming Evolved titles.

Will Nvidia be allowed to make launch drivers for these games, or will it be like the Tomb Raider situation where they had to wait a couple of days? Or something else entirely? I want to upgrade soon dammit!

I stand corrected, thought these were Never Settle games!

Thanks for the heads-up
