Soda Drinker Pro is exactly what the Kinect 2 needs to prove it's worth to all the naysayers!

SOda drinker?!  Seriously?  Who frackin' cares!  Sheesh I guess the next game making the news would be "Toilet Races!"  See who can push a turd into the toilet the fastest by mashing a button!  Oh brother.

i7 4820k and a GTX780 here, so bring on the sweet ultra setting!

At this point I can't find a reason for next gen, however if the Mass effect trilogy was re-released in high def with the inclusion of the DLC I would jump in head first in a heart beat.

I have i7-4770k cpu and gtx660ti 2GB gpu and I think I'll be fine until I get new graphics card in some time this fall. I would get one now, but I just refuse to get new one before I have had this one at least two years. 


Just disable some MSAA and maybe HBAO and it will still look better than console versions and run better. Cpu has surprisingly big impact in gaming performance which I noticed last summer when my old mobo fried/died whatever and I replaced my old i5 750 with this i7-4770k. Same memory, same gpu, same ssd and hd drives, unbelievable amount more performance.

Drinking simulator? Industry is going downhill fast. I better start gathering old systems and games while they are available in decent prices.


Why wouldn't new Mass Effect come also for PS4/Xone, if not, I will not support it even the facet I'd play it on PC like the earlier ones?

4670K & 280X - I thing I'll be able to max out the game. The "recommended" specs are always rubbish.

I'm running a GTX 690 and i5-3570K CPU, which I plan to overclock. So, I think I meet the ultra specs.

Yeah even goat simulator was too much for me.

Funny watching other people play it but there is no way I'm going to waste my own money on something that is probably funny for an hour and then gets old.

That drinking one doesn't even look funny to watch.

Watch Dogs is my problem with PC right now. PC HAS the potential to give awesome looking games but you just need too much power to run them.

When you have a PC any laptop whether it is a dual core netbook or a top end gaming PC will run every day stuff with ease.

The only reason to buy uber graphics cards is FOR games and if you are one of the people who makes videos or simulations or something. Which isn't that many people overall.

You have to go an extremely long way overboard to get games that look this good. No matter if PC gaming isn't as expensive as people think, it IS still pretty expensive. The only saving grace is games are dirt cheap.

But I just don't think that graphics of any kind are worth going to the effort of making your system run. I honestly think I'd rather wait another two or three console cycles.

Easily run Watchdogs on max at 1920x1080 60fps, the jury's out on whether I'll have it at 5760x1080 60fps which is what I usually play at.

I'm running a i7 4770K with a Asus R9 270X 2GB and 16Gigs of Skill Ram. I wonder what I can get this game to play at.

built my rig February for all the upcoming games for at least this year, 2014. i7-4770 with NVidia 770. If no other game will push the envelope I will not upgrade.


hey Jess, did I mention my rig is ready for watch dogs, even though I will not purchase it until the price drops because I have too many other SP games I've yet to start and wasted money pre-ordering those and all I've done is play SWTOR and BF4.


at least my rig is ready XD

For me, the soda drinking simulator was the big news today.

I have an Alienware x51 r2 pc with CPU i7 4770 with GPU GTX 660. Should be good but not all will be Ultra.

Is it just me or does the Soda Simulator demo video show a level that looks like one of Cliffy B's original Unreal Tournament ones?

(Probably just me and lack of sleep...)

Hi Nice Aussie Lady -  (sounds like an Indie game title, doesn't it) -

Soda Simulator - No comment on it's frivolity but I'm dying to see if some fan-boyish stuff fires up about it.  Just to add to the weirdness.

Watch Dogs - ULTRA PC - YEP!  Finally some sort of justification for me buying the Titan card a while back.  (It was still a brain fart on my part, I'll admit.)

I have an i7 2700, and a GTX570.  Maybe not everything will be maxed but I am sure most will be maxed.  Not worrying about a thing!

That soda game will really push the xbox one to its limits.

I cant wait for a new Mass effect. Kindof hope they do a remake of the trilogy for the ps4, I know im part of the problem, but I want it

My PC will be able to run Watch_Dogs on very high settings with AA and HBAO+ enabled in 1080p...

It probably won't run with everything maxed out but I couldn't care less. ;)

Core i5 4670 + GeForce 770  2 GB... woe is me apparently.

I could maybe see Soda Drinker being little fun if you use Oculus Rift and have an actual soda in your hand.  And by fun I mean not having to pay for the game and just playing it for laughs.

I think its exactly in the same vein as the Goat game. Its the vein of cynicism. Get ready for more of these types of games when they realise that gamers are willing to pay for anything because its meant to be "funny". $10 is a lot to pay for one joke. You can buy some great games for that much money.

I mean, a soda drinking simulation? Just reflect on that for a moment. Are things that bad in this industry?

What I want from the new Mass Effect?  How about a patch to fix the absurd ending of ME3.  After all, if we keep the ending we have... Shep dead, relays FUBAR, billions stranded, all geth dead, Earth a wasteland and the galaxy in ruins.


So uh what will we be doing in ME4?  Building shelters for homeless humans?  Teaching Quarians how to grow crops?  Running preschools for thousands of Krogan babies?

Bit too far with the Soda Drinker but nice to see people testing the limits.

That Chell t-shirt...Me Like. Wouldn't a cathedral glass painting style work derived from that t-shirt design look awesome?

@sgerhartz I would buy a next gen rerelease of the Mass Effect Trilogy only if it contained all the available dlc for each game. having it run native 1080p @ 60fps would be nice as well though. Throw in some decent Kinect support and I might even buy the XB1 version over the PS4's even if it doesn't hit native 1080p...

@snaketus I was wondering the same thing. It seems like it should be a no brainer for the next M.E. game to release on the XB1 and PS4. By the time it comes out the install base should be more than sufficient to warrant it considering the great sales of both systems so far.

@Dannystaples14  "Watch Dogs is my problem with PC right now. PC HAS the potential to give awesome looking games but you just need too much power to run them."


Blame MS and their stupid DX.


I feel the same way tho, maybe I was expecting way more of these new consoles, but it seems they really can't put that good graphics after all with decent frame rates. Kind of should have upgraded my graphics card instead of buying PS4.

@dfuknb  Most likley 10-20 fps ultra 20-35 fps high and 35-50 on Medium. all on 1080p of course. just going off my experience in BF4 since i have the same GPU. not to mention optimization isnt really a thing with Ubisoft.

@Coseniath I've got a 760 so I'll probably hold out for the Volta. Stacked DRAM yo!

@toddx77 Also you could get in-game skin of respective soda on buying the real one at your nearest friendly 24hrs shopping mart and experience 4d gaming...any takers?

@DrowNoble Wouldn't the hidden Leviathans -the guys who built the Reaper's AI and the relays rebuild them again or did some extinct ancient race before the Levs do that.

@etgbrown @dfuknb  Thats not to bad. I played Metro Last Light Maxed out with no issues and I was surprised. Im hoping I can get similar graphics quality from my GPU.
