Rumored End of MLG After Activision Blizzard PurchaseIf you're into e-sports then you've probably heard of MLG (Major League Gaming) as they were pretty big in the scene and held tournaments for StarCraft 2, Call of Duty and others. It turns out that MLG was running substantial debt and needed a way out and so on Dec. 21st, MLG's Board of Directors approved an Asset Purchase Agreement with Activision Blizzard for $46 million. Of course the stockholders had no idea this was happening and it seems most of them will be left with next to nothing after MLG's debts are paid off. Esports Observer spoke with one of the affected stockholders who said, "I got fucked on stock". In fact, it was only the next day after the purchase agreement that the stockholders were informed of the sale. Nobody knows what Activision Blizzard intends to do with this purchase since they are close with ESL so starting their own competing eSports tournament may not make much sense. View full article
CoD - Modern Warfare 3: Optimization & DiscussionSo, CoD MW3 got just released a couple of days ago, did some of you guys get it as well or am I the only one here who likes this game? I haven't played it that much yet, but from what I've seen so far I really like it, fantastic game! Course it's very similar to MW2 and one can say that it gets repetitive, I however really enjoy such fast paced games (the multiplayer mode) and from what I've seen the campaign is worth the couple of hours. There's also a nice co-op mode, which lets you play some missions or survival mode, which I think is a lot of fun. That's even the part of the game I played most so far. Anyway, in you plan to get the game (or already have it), you should make sure to set it up properly, especially the video settings. Here some tips: In the video settings, choose "Windowed (No Border)" for Display Mode, this will allow you to quickly swap between windows with alt+tab without the usual issues. Then probably the most important setting: Go to "Advanced video settings" and change "Image Quality" to "Native" This is the only way to make the game run at your native resolution, otherwise it gets upscaled from 720p. The difference is obviously huge. For the rest of the settings it depends on the hardware, but if you have a high-end mobile GPU you can easily max it out. If you want even more tweaks go to the config file of the game, it allows you to do some more tweaking. E.g. you can up the anisotropic filtering to 16x or raise to AA to 8x, which otherwise isn't possible.

This will apparently also remove the fps cap. Though I'm not even sure whether there's already a CF profile for MW3... no idea about Nvidia either. I'll let you know in case I find some more handy tweaks. Edit 2: It might be useful to make the config file "read-only", to prevent the game from automatically changing back some settings, even though I didn't have any issues so far.
