**My question to the group: Does the PS4 make PC games better due to Sony going the x86 route?

- MS has also announced it will unveil its next gen box in April. They seemed to be caught by surprise at  
Sony's unveiling. If the rumors are true, and MS is designing a 'living room entertainment hub' and Sony  
releases a GAMING platform, I feel Sony takes this one.

When you start the game THAT's when you will see all the additional stuff. I do have to admit, while a bit crude, after I loaded up the game and got to run around with a huge purple dildo, beating the hell out of people, I laughed so hard I almost wet myself. HILARIOUS!

This is a SPECIAL Podcast, with just Dustin and I.

We had a TON of gaming news and we thought it would be a good idea to talk about it.

Now, there is some language... and some bowl movement issues... so be warned.

We also had a 'screen sharing section' where Dustin and I work his EVGA Precision 4.x issues and I show him how to do some stuff he did not know how to do. I have included the video portion of the section, only, at the bottom of the page.

Enjoy!

Here are the show notes:

Games

- Binary Domain
    - Voice input
    - Team Selection
    - Great story and graphics
    - Humor (not dirty, just funny)
    - 4.99 price... WOW!
    - You get to "re-arrange' robots vs. humans. Excellent cut screens!
    - Hope they make a 2nd one!

- Have you ever played a 'troll game?' - NO!
   - So Dustin and I come up with our own 'troll game!' SVEN! Get out of the bathroom!

- Dead Space 3 - Origin Sale! - get all the ad-ons for DS3 for under 20.00! Origin Sale ONLY!

- Crysis 3
    - Graphics that will make your jaw drop.
    - Still some glitches - I got stuck in the grass. Spun around like a moron while getting eaten.
    - You will need some SERIOUS hardware to see all the eye candy!
    - Video driver, NVIDIA to be specific in SLI need work. Still getting some crashes.
    - First patch has been released.

- Breath new life into Crysis 2 Max Edition!
    - If you ordered the game through Origin you need to patch the game.
    - Download Patch 1.9 for Crysis 2 from here - http://games.softpedia.com/get/Patch/Crysis-2-Patch.shtml
    - Get the high-res-tex pack from here (BIG download) - http://www.mycrysis.com/dx11 - enables DX11.
    - Play it again... MAX Edition includes some new stuff (guns, etc...) worth the download and the re-play!
