Sorry, i never hit the games forums so this is going here. Looks like there may be a Ubi Farcry 2 afterall. Not sure how it will compare to Crytek/EA's Crysis, but being a big Farcry fan, I'll take another one for sure.

Interesting indeed. However, the leaked materials, as the article said, were concept art and tech demos. This is good evidence to suggest FarCry 2 is coming, but not concrete. I believe Splinter Cell 5 and other games were on the list, but I'll believe in their existence when UbiSoft announces them.

One more thing, Ubi is evil. I'm getting close to establishing my hypothesis as scientific fact.

There's somebody at Beyond3d that might be able to say more about what we've just read than what we've just read. :lol: 

Here's hoping.

Every day huh, gotta luv that. :D 

It (the original) came in the open box huh, good for you. The X1300/1600 series doesn't have FL in it. I ordered one and despite the newegg pic showing FL included, it was not in the box. I called to complain and with a little negotions and order history talks, Newegg really came through and made good on that one though.

Anyway, FO2 is the game I currently play the most. And past few days it's been trying to help my kids in career mode. Which means playing on their OC'ed XP1700+ / R9500 pro rig. I am amzed that 800x600 highest detials but no AA/AF, the game sits above 50 fps always and even pins out at the 75 refresh most of the time. I am sure AA would kill it, but I could probably enable some level of AF.

My PC room is the warmest room in the house, hence the fly's migration towards it.

I had one little bugger that night landing on my screen I was trying to kill, but he got sucked into a case fan before I could get to him.

He's one of the only ones I've witness survive a case fan blade smaking into him, and that night, I watched him fly around inside my case.

True story.

The card came in the box, with all accessories(even though Newegg said it would be the card only).

Everything looked brand new(packages sealed, etc.)

Good deal; gotta love that.

LOL about the fly exploring his new neon lit world. Big question is, did he survive whichever fan blew him back out, or is he all over the wall behind the PC? :lol:

I though I would get a flyswatter too :lol: 

Basically card, driver CD, and cables, no other software.

Ah, too bad, you got ripped off too. The best one is the hard to find HIS Ice Q Turbo NYC (new york city) edition. It comes bundled with a Glock 23. (.40 Cal pistol) No joke. :twisted: For some reason they seem to get snatched up before hitting the shelves. They must really like gaming in NYC. :roll:

First they cripple cards, then they cripple the package. :evil:
