    Nice! I wonder if you'll have to choose which game when you buy the card or if you get a code that lets you pick a game when you redeem it? The latter may be trickier to sell since it isn't one specific game.

    Usually you would get a code that you can trade in for your choice of change when you register the card. IIRC.

    Pick my path, with Ubisoft??!!

    If that's the case, I'll bugger off and choose an AMD card, then!!

    Re: News - Nvidia announces Ubisoft 'Pick Your Path' games bundle

    Thanks KeyboardDemon. Been a while since I bought a graphics card (EVGA GTX670 FTW last summer) and I think I got a printed code on a little card in the box, but that was for a specific game.

    Ttaskmaster, yeah these are major titles but they don't appeal much to me either, except The Crew looks like it might be a hell of a lot of fun (though I'll likely already have it and have logged many hours on it by the time I buy my new card).

    The Crew is very good, as much as I could play in the betas. I spent a lot of time just plotting a course and driving across the map, which is very enjoyable in itself. It's got quite a simplistic, arcadey look in some ways, but it's very sophisticated in others. The way the light, the landscape and the vegetation changes between regions is really beautifully done (plus I think it even introduced film grain in the sandy parts of the south west states?).

    Anyway, you're right. It's the least demanding of the games listed, and your 670 will do well with it - no need for any upgrade there. Unity is the one I'm looking forward to the most, though. Lots of people seem to think it'll work fine on sub-680 cards, but then again that video looks pretty crazy. I don't think I've bought a more graphically demanding game before, based on what I see there. I have a 4GB 770, but I think even that is going to be tested pretty hard.

    Re: News - Nvidia announces Ubisoft 'Pick Your Path' games bundle

    After all the stupid decisions Ubisoft have made recently I'd rather just buy the gpu without their bundle and in my opinion a lot of people should do the same. Don't show support to companies who take advantage of you.

    Yeah it's nice to see a game with more reasonable requirements :-) That said, I have no problem at all with steep requirements if it's justified (something like Crysis) and I will be getting a GTX970 soon anyway. I'd have gone with the GTX770 too last summer had it been 4GB as standard, but it was a hefty price premium for that extra memory and I got a good deal on the GTX670, so went with that.

    I actually hate film grain effect but presumably you can disable that? I can certainly appreciate eye candy though so look forward to seeing it in action :-) How would you say it compares to Need for Speed Rivals in that regard (assuming you've played it)? Also, how is it for rubber-banding AI? That's one thing I absolutely detest in racing games. I'll tolerate it in kart racers like Mario Kart or Sonic All-Stars Racing, but only because the mechanism used (item pickups) is transparent (and fun :-D).

    Well, I call it "film grain", but I might even be wrong about what it was. It looked like it was either an effect to simulate classic movies, or perhaps an environmental effect based on a genuine observation of the way the air looks there, or the presence of fine dust. It was certainly nothing like the grain effects in GTA IV: Lost & Damned: much more subtle and pleasant. I only noticed it in this one region, so if it makes it into the Gold version then the only option will probably be "Don't go there"

    I was lucky with my 770 - got it very cheaply as an item that had been opened in the shop but not used. Part of me wishes I'd had the self-control to wait for the 970 of course, but it's still a very nice card!

    In the same boat as MUZIC, does anyone know if there's any love for early adopters?

    It certainly is! Was that Ebuyer? Well I guess where I'd draw the line is any effect designed to make the game look like a flawed medium or where things are 'artistically' distorted to reflect the protagonist's state of mind or some other nonsense. Anything based on reality though (heat shimmer for example) I'm all for :-)

    Depends where you bought it.

    Scan UK will not back date sadly. I regret purchasing from them under 30days ago, while other retailers are back dating.
