Call of Duty Black Ops Gameplay on GT 540M

Feels so lazy to blog these days. But anyway, here is a gameplay video of Call of Duty Black Ops on Nvidia Geforce GT540M and Core i7 2630QM. I'm running the game at 1366x768, with my texture settings being set to extra.

I disabled shadows and anti aliasing for smoother gameplay. Its a recording from the Theatre Mode, yes, I'm legit for this. Getting a smooth framerate of 50 - 70 FPS. I also managed to complete the single player without any lag with the graphic settings mentioned.

Battlefield 3 Gameplay on PS3

This is the first time ever EA shows Battlefield 3 gameplay on consoles. It looks pretty good on a console so far. But the dude is using a red dot attachment as opposed to the ACOG in the PC demo. Lack of shadows and decals are obvious. Sony, just fucking announce PlayStation 4 on E3 next year. I doubt if PS3 has better gpu than the upcoming Wii U.

What was shown on the night was a PS3 exclusive preview into a previous seen level from the Battlefield 3 Fault Line series. In this video, Kevin O'Leary and another EA Games employee played a PS3 version of Battlefield 3, showing not only new menus, but a little more of the campaign, and how the game will feel, in they eyes of a noob.

Battlefield 3 VS Modern Warfare 3

Oh well, Battlefield 3 will outsell Modern Warfare 3 this fall, I'm pretty sure. Bobby Kotick is such an asshole for insulting Battlefield 3. He's probably afraid of Battlefield 3 victorious.

While everyone was impressed with Battlefield 3 at E3 — where the game walked away with several awards — Activision CEO Bobby Kotick wasn’t one of them.

In an interview with business network CNBC, Kotick challenged Battlefield 3 on the console front, saying what’s been shown so far has only been on the PC, whereas most of the business is on the console side. Kotick said,

“So far I’ve only seen Battlefield 3 on a PC, I haven’t seen it on a console where the bulk of the business is. If it’s just a PC title, as it looks like today, that’s just a small audience to participate.”

Battlefield 3 was only playable on the PC at E3, while a PS3 version was shown behind closed doors. The Xbox 360 version wasn’t shown at all, with DICE saying it simply wasn’t ready. As for Modern Warfare 3, BF3′s main competitor, it too was mostly shown behind closed doors at E3, where very few got a chance to actually play it.

Despite this, Kotick’s words aren’t surprising: Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 will go head to head this Fall, and like to heavyweight champions, what we’re seeing now are just the pre-fight smack talking.

BulletStorm Nvidia GT540M Core i7 2630QM Gameplay

As promised, I'll be showing you some gameplay videos of BulletStorm. I'd personally recommend you to watch in 720p HD so that you'll be able to see the full graphics details and so on. This game runs pretty smooth on my laptop, Acer Aspire 5750G laptop. I'm running at 1360x768 resolution, with everything on high, except that I disabled the Anti Aliasing and Post Processing for smoother framerate. I'm getting 40 - 60 FPS. Note that I've got random freezes during the game, its basically a console ported game and it doesn't run so well if you have a mid range card like me. But overall, I enjoy this game and it's a good game ofcourse.

In these gameplay videos, I was recording them at a resolution of 1280x600. That was back then when I have not updated my driver. Please update your Nvidia Driver for better performance. Yeap, seriously. Anyway, here are the videos.

Acer Aspire 5750g Review

Based on NotebookCheck Review on this laptop, one of the reviews caught my attention before I bought this laptop. It says, If you don't want to pay a high price for a high-end processor like the Sandy Bridge Core i7, the Aspire 5750G is a way to get the performance and reasonable battery life, without breaking the budget. You're not paying for unusually fancy design (although we think the blue case is stylish) and you're getting most of what you need, including a decent keyboard and good graphics. The screen is slightly disappointing and we'd like to see more than one USB 3.0 port, but it had the rest of the spec to match the processor you'd be paying rather more than this. This notebook makes Core i7 definitely affordable.

Yes, indeed. This laptop is the best bang for buck. If and only if you trust in Acer products. I've been using Acer laptops since Year 2008. My old laptop was using a Core 2 Duo T6500 2.1GHz and Nvidia Geforce G105M Graphic. Now, my sister is still using it. No problems so far. It shows that Acer laptop can actually have a very long life span if we take care of it a lot.

Now, let's get back to the topic. This laptop was actually an impulse buy because it was a gift from my parents as I achieved Straight A in my SPM. That was funny. I was requesting for a PS3 but then, I changed my mind to buy this 5750g instead. I need it for college life. Bought it at RM2899 and the laptop comes with a lot of free gifts.

I don't experience heat problems with my laptop. After gaming for one hour, Battlefield Bad Company 2 or Call of Duty Black Ops, I can feel heat on the left palm rest area. This is normal because my friend's XPS 15 is also experiencing the same thing. GT540M is just good enough to run latest games at high resolutions and medium settings. In my opinion, GT540M users should turn off some eye candy graphics settings in games, for examples, Shadows, AA, Motion Blur, Post Processing. This is to ensure a pretty smooth frame rate when playing new games at high resolutions.

I will be updating this blog with gameplay reviews and settings with this laptop's graphic card. Anyway, more photos here. Thats all from me. I suck at writing reviews. K thanks.

Recruiting [247] Clan Members

I'm recruiting [247] clan members. If you're interested to join, just change your clan tag in the Playercard menu. And I allow you to copy my emblem. I designed it myself yesterday. I think it looks perfect on my AK74u. On top of that, I'm not the leader, I just create this clan for fun. And I know there's an existing [247] clan on the XboxLive community for Modern Warfare 2, but who cares lolz.

Wasted RM70 on Heroes of Newerth Premium Items

I couldn't believe I bought RM70 of Garena Shells just to purchase some premium items in the Merrick Store of Heroes of Newerth. Now, I have stopped playing Heroes of Newerth for some reasons, maybe it's because I'm addicted to Black Ops multiplayer. The very first original game that I own. I feel like selling this account to buy a copy of The Orange Box on Steam. But it seems like no one is interested in buying it. RM70 wasted.
