REVIEWS Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemi Review
Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Someone at IGN must have been on drugs when they wrote this.

This also is not real underclocking, Its playing a game that your pc can barely run.

I ran Fallout 3 with a:

AMD 1800+ XP single core
Geforce 7800 GS
2 gigs of RAM
and a shit ton of mods. It didn't exactly crash and was playable but I much rather run it with the rig that I have now.

I've also ran Oblivion on a GeForce FX 5700 and it look like Morrowind but with physics.

I do this every day with my laptop.

Fucking GTA: Vice City lags on this thing.
Hence my recent GoG spending splurges.
Alpha Centauri runs nice.

Did this with my older, more powerful laptop.
Note that even though it was more powerful, it ran at 20FPS unless i was using litebright.

The power difference between my laptop and my desktop is ridiculous. Emulated Wind Waker at 4x internal resolution, anti-aliased while a 720p music video plays on the other screen?
Lol, challenge me you pussy.

Meanwhile, my laptop can just manage DS games.
Delicious haswell laptop soon.
