    Astonishing HD timelapse video

    http://vimeo.com/21294655 Another one. This time, aurora borealis and a great great song choice. I've only watched it on my phone so not sure how the picture quality compares, but it still left me gobsmacked.

    Bathurst 1000

    Practice 3 was called off due to the fog at the top of the mountain. I will be there tomorrow, for my 11th time in 12 years, after a year off for other things last year. Can't wait!

    PSA for PC gamers: Try intkeys out

    Nup. My job is far more boring than that (alas, that is a post for another time and place). I was just amazed to see that people hadn't heard of them, given other forums have been using them (along with greenmangaming - who I have used - another excellent service that allows you to trade in - which I haven't tried - various digital copies of your games for credit) and loving them for some time. Thought I'd share it. I don't even have an account with them currently, but I have used them vicariously with my bros account to buy F1 ($20 was too hard to resist in the end). He made an account in anticipation/hope of Skyrim making its way onto the platform. If I see FM2012 on there (though hopefully cheaper than $40) I'll buy that too.

    PSA for PC gamers: Try intkeys out

    http://www.intkeys.com/ I've been spruiking this site for awhile now in the odd thread, but I saw it got a mention in RAGE thread, and it became clear that not everyone was aware of it. But now you are! Examples of some prices: F1 2011: $19.99 RAGE: $34.99 FIFA 12: $29.99 Dead Island: $24.99 And a bit about them: They're great :D
  5. http://vimeo.com/29950141 The instructions state 1080p monitors and sound turned up. I recommend following them. This is pretty breathtaking, I found them even better than the slow motion (ultra high FPS recording) ocean videos/gifs that were all the rage some years ago. A better 3 minutes you will struggle to spend today on the internets. I thought the video was worth watching just for the night time shots (particularly the shot with the windmill in the foreground). Wonderful stuff; I'm going to go and slap some civilians about so I can level up my corneal augments to better appreciate these.

    Steve Jobs. Dead

    I'll write here what I've written elsewhere on this news: A visionary beyond his chosen field. Also, FUCK cancer.

    Demon's Souls and Dark Souls

    I received my emails from the UK for both my guide and my CE, hopefully they arrive early next week after I get back from Mt Panorama. Would be perfectly timed! So jelly of you who are playing it already!

    Rage 5 running 60FPS on Console

    The community has already worked out how to increase the mega texture issues (from the consoles 4k textures to whatever your PC will support - 8k and 16k) which improves them considerably, as well as how to increase the FOV, but all in all, the PC release is a disaster.

    /edit: Fuck this. ... Good post Brock, well said. Your story mimics my experiences with similar kids to the very last detail. index was one of my all time favourite atomic posters and an absolute delight to have around. This entire forum is a more hollow place without characters like him.

    Rumour Mill - Alan Wake 2 next gen launch title

    http://www.joystiq.com/2011/10/04/rumor-al...-the-next-xbox/ This rumour seems plausible among the other rumors of new generation consoles. 2013 maybe? I saw something similar to this yesterday let me see if I can dig it up... http://www.product-reviews.net/2011/10/03/...xbox-720-games/ Fall 2012 maybe, haha?! Bring one Alan Wake 2 for sure, I can't wait for the hyperbolic pixel counting all over again!

    Battlefield3 first thoughts.

    http://bf3blog.com/2011/10/report-ea-and-v...eld-3-to-steam/ On phone so can't quote - but ea and valve are rumored to be in late stage talks to bring bF to steam in time for launch

    Rage 5 running 60FPS on Console

    The poor poor PC version. Oh boy the internet is blowing up over this. Seems to be mostly affecting AMD/ATI cards.
