There's one thing I hate about PC gaming. 

It's the fact that it is a PC. 

On consoles I really just want to play games and if I want to look something up or whatever, I can just walk a few feet and go on my computer or just pick up my tablet. 
On PC, I really want to play games, but its like there's so much distraction that I don't. 

It makes no sense, I know.  I hardly ever do.

I have ~100 games on Steam and I can confess to not spending much time with most of them. Then there are some game I've played for hundreds of hours...

Garry's Mod - 583 hours (I mostly played the Jailbreak game mode. It's unique and rewards both patience and quick thinking.)
Skyrim - 349 hours (Glorious Argonian master race.)
The Sims 3 - 305 hours (I don't even know how or why I played so much of it)
Civilization V - 250 hours (Expansions make this the best game in the series, I say.)
Europa Universalis IV - 228 hours (Makes Civilization look like a casual game. It'll probably pass Civ in the next few months.)
Terraria - 110 hours (Good times on multiplayer. Not so good times otherwise.)

Surprisingly, it was my most hated game (possibly most hated game EVER) and yet it was the only AC game I completed. I tried AC2/3/Black Flag and either Revelations or Brotherhood I don't remember which one exactly.


AC1 was.....OKish but I guess I would of been more impressed if I didnt play it in low settings (due to the fact that I didnt have a good GFX card when I first played it) - AC2 was fantastic! I'm playing AC Brotherhood now and loving it!

It was too repetitive. The graphics part didn't bother me at all, it's just the entire game was go to a city, do some of the same boring mission to reveal your target in the city and go kill him. Rinse and repeat for literally the entire game. I mean I understand it's an "Assassin" game and you're supposed to kill people, but at least they should have had some better side missions or something so the game wouldn't feel so repetitive.

I didnt like the side missions that much, that involved beating up people to save them or to get info, sneaking up on people to obtain information or to steal a item, going through puzzle dungeons just to get some treasure, etc. Assassinating those who are part of the templars was fun :O lol.

8/10 for me. Story was pretty good but the game itself was very boring to play. I love a good story in my single player games but I also want the game to be fun to play because to be honest that is what pushes me to continue playing a game to the finish. If a games not fun I just won't bother.

Far Cry 3 for instance had a meh story, but god dayum was it fun to play...Loved that game. Off topic but I was actually thinking about picking up a PS4 if they have a Far Cry 4 bundle here in Canada.

Basil I finished Darksiders 2, there's nothing Halloween about it.  It's very bland because the world's are all tube like.  You just get funneled from one area to another.


This is what 90% of the game looks like:

Starting to play some Battlefield 3 on PC again after a long break from that game. It's so good in comparison to the shitfest that is BF4.

Also thanks for the heads up on Dragon Age. I got BF3 for free through Origin too and I have it on PS Plus on PS3. I must have put over 100 hours on both the PC and PS3 version. 60 Hours on PC 40 on PS3.

What is family sharing? I've heard of it on steam but never knew what it did. Someone can just play your entire game library? No strings attached?

Indeed. You can download almost any of my games to your PC as long as I authorize your PC (which can be done remotely if I just give you a temporary password to access my account on your PC). The only "catch" is that only one person can play a game in my library at the same time. It's not really a catch in my case though since I don't play very often.

Lol yeah right. Like I said, it only kicks you out if you try to access the same game at the same time.

In any case, even if you were right it wouldn't have much impact on someone who'd get to play my games since I don't play games on Steam very often (like once a week, sometimes less although it depends on if I get hooked on a game).

No I mean why you download all of them at the same time o.O.

I usually download a game - play/finish it then back it up game and save file to my external HDD - delete the game on PC but keep the save file - rinse and repeat with another game ;o.

Although I do keep a few games such as Left 4 Dead 2, CSGO, etc.

Those are some great games! Play bioshock 1 - its good ;)

Because if I decided that I wanted to play a game one day, I'd have to wait at least a full day.  So I have it all downloaded. 
I've played Bioshock, but only the first one for the most part.

Right now it's doing 3.5 kb/s for some reason.  Don't know why it's that slow.

I think that considering no one uses Uplay because it's garbage that they need to go on a big marketing campaign and improve the service before they even consider moving away from Steam. Though I can imagine that they may very well lose a lot of sales even then because of how popular Steam is. It could also hurt Steam, though. They already lost EA titles after Origin came out. If any more big publishers pursue their own thing it could be bad news for Valve.

Actually each time you play a ubisoft game that came out after 2009 - you are automatically using uPlay due to the fact that the DRM requires you to log in before you are able save or even play the game. Its much more forcing than GFWL where it just prevents you from saving a game but still play the game.

In terms of how the games are operating? I would say neither - the end user is the one who has it worse since they need both uPlay and Steam to be on to play one single game......

I mean in regards to which company would take the bigger hit from it. Would it be Ubisoft for making their games digitally available only through their own Uplay service, which no one seems to like, or Valve for no longer be able to offer Ubisoft titles?

Ubisoft would take the flack just like EA takes the flack for having their games Origin Only. But in the end - people will still play/buy games from companies like them.

Also in case you were wondering, ACUnity and Far Cry 4 are back on the Steam store lol - at least for now.

Almost all of my games on Origin are Free.

Well some of them were humble bundle duplicate keys (which can be used on both Steam and Origin) and from Mass Effect 1 (which I got from a friend) and Mass Effect 2 which I bought which also had Origin compatible keys.

If I were to buy anything next from EA/Origin it would be either bioware points or Mass Effect 3.

Great! Yep sometimes validating the files usually works other times you have to change the compatibility setting for the exe i.e. Max Payne 1 and 2 needs to be run on Win 98 mode to run without issues.

I highly recommend Humble Bundle - they usually carry well known multiplat indie titles along with some multiplat AAA developed titles such as from Squareenix, EA, etc.

I also recommend Bundle Stars if you want some of the lesser known, cult classic, PC exclusive games - their bundles are usually cheaper too but some of the ones such as Crusader Kings and LEGO have been...well a lot lol.

Also just to let you know, Humble Bundle usually has 2-3 bundles with 2 of them changing each week and one main one changing every 2 weeks. They have other bundles too but not gaming.

Bundle Stars usually updates with a new bundle every few days (2-3 days) and the bundles expire weeks/months later with the first few days being really dirt cheap. So in the end they have had up to 10-20 bundles active at once before.

This is my third computer. 
First one, I got in 2008 or so, was running a Pentium 4.  Wasn't even able to run Age of Empires 3.  But I did play Age of Empires 2. 
Second one, I got a year ago or maybe 2 now, CPU was much better. 
It was a Athlon X2 6000+/Radeon HD 4200.
Age of Empires 3 yes, but any game newer than 2008 or so was a no no.

So my first 2 computers I got from family members and were outdated by quite a bit. 

This year I decided I was going to build my own. 
-Intel i5-4690,  8 GB Ram
Got that far about 3 months ago, finally got a good GPU. 

-Intel i5-4690

It was a Athlon X2 6000+/Radeon HD 4200.
Age of Empires 3 yes, but any game newer than 2008 or so was a no no.

So my first 2 computers I got from family members and were outdated by quite a bit. 

This year I decided I was going to build my own. 
-Intel i5-4690,  8 GB Ram
Got that far about 3 months ago, finally got a good GPU. 

-Intel i5-4690
-8 GB RAM
-GTX 970

So proud and happy with it.  :D

Pretty nice config.

My PC is a Pentium III with GeForce 256 yet :P play Diablo (the first) and StarCract pretty well... ohhhh it plays the first Age of Empires too.

I have a note but it is not for gaming... so I never installed anything but I guess it plays better than my PC even being an i5 with HD integrated graphics.

When I meant to say Niche - I meant to say its like a cult classic - in which a lot of people never heard of it originally but then it had legs/grew slowly kinda like the Disgaea series.

Yeah the only security holes we have are in the fancy profile pages. In there you can edit some code to change things up.

Everywhere else is locked up tight through a set of permissions. Before the server does anything, it checks if that user is actually allowed to do it.

As far as I've seen, no.  Still quite useful, but if you're going to be gaming quad core is almost minimum now as some games don't support dual core.

I was thinking with all the future games coming out being built with 8 core in mind for the consoles that quad cores would be almost pointless in a years time.

I was thinking with all the future games coming out being built with 8 core in mind for the consoles that quad cores would be almost pointless in a years time.

The CPU on the consoles are not the best.  AMD CPUs are like half an intel CPU.  I think the numbers I see are like 60%; plus the CPU is clocked very low compared to most new PCs.  Newer PCs might have a  CPU that runs some 3 or 4 GHz.  Mine is 3.5.  Whereas the consoles are 1.6, and 1.75. 
So even if they were clocked at about the same, an Intel CPU would barely lose and would probably still win most of the time anyway.

So, because of consoles, quad cores should be good for a few more years.  Dual cores on the other hand, like I said are pretty much on the way out.

It will in a few years.

Some of the latest AAA games coming to PC are minimum with a quad core.

I'll be upgrading possibly next year or the year afterwards. Depending on when I get my PS4 :P.

Title: Re: PC Community Thread
Post by: Legend on Nov 27, 2014, 04:12 AM

Do you live in the US?

Best Buy is selling a Seagate 5 TB for $139.99

Likewise Microcenter is selling a Western Digital 4 TB for $139.99 as well.

Both external harddrives.

I'm planning to buy the 5 TB one tomorrow so I can use as a backup for my games, videos, movies, music, etc :P


Wow. I think it was two black Fridays ago that I bought a couple 1TB hard drives for like $80. Dem prices keep going down!

Crazy to think that within 10 years petabyte hard drives will start making their way down to consumers.

Look in the DDR3 1600 section, would probably be the best bet.

Nvidia


lol ok, which one? I've been looking at the r9 290 4gb version. It cost 380 So i guess 400 is my limit, over time i will buy a second card. This is my eye candy machine, as i already have a ps4 and xbox 1. I want to build something that will blow the two out of the water.

Title: Re: PC Community Thread
Post by: Dr. Pezus on Nov 29, 2014, 07:07 PM
From Eurogamer:

"The GeForce GTX 970 is that rarest of things in the graphics card market - a genuine game-changer. In fact, it's actually more like a cooked hand grenade strategically lobbed into the high-end GPU market, designed to cause maximum damage to the competition - but in the process impacting just as many Nvidia cards too. It costs £260, which is a lot of money, but its performance per pound ratio is so strong that some might say there's little point considering any other high-end GPU currnetly available - and that includes Nvidia's own flagship GTX 980."

I'm sure it's the same in the US as in the UK

"The headlines are this: AMD's R9 290 and top-line R9 290X - £300 and £400 GPUs respectively - are effectively obsolete: hot, power-hungry, inefficient products that are effortlessly bested by Nvidia's £260 upstart. Nvidia is caught in the blast radius itself too - the GTX 780 is history, while the 780 Ti - a card that sold for over £500 just a few months - is also bordering on the irrelevant. Overclocked, the GTX 970 also beats the stock performance of the £430 GTX 980 in most applications too - a phenomenal showing bearing in mind that the latter is 65 per cent more expensive."

It's really simple. You just download this program and it works! As long as you have the 360 controller drivers for Windows (they should install automatically when you connect with USB for the first time)

Follow around the links from PCSX 2.  There's a GUI based driver I'm currently using.  It uses the same backend as the other drives but gives you more options.  You can use key maps.  I was actually using the key maps on the nullDC emulator since 360 controllers don't work on it.  I can't get keymaps working for Bloodrayne 2 for whatever reason though :/

11 BEFORE ASKING QUESTION DOWNLOAD XinputTest and see if all buttons work. (A LOT OF GAMES REQUIRE HIDE DS4 TO BE ON)
IF XinputTest shows everything correctly the problem is with the game!

Explanation on what HIDE DS4 CONTROLLER checkbox does:

I think next march will be when the new/final dev kit is set to be revealed. I know I'll be getting one at least.

Would have got one sooner but I only have a laptop that I could play on right now. It runs games great, but that's at 900p(native screen size) 30fps. 1080p 75fps would kill the game visuals.

Power supply, CPU and GPU are the three things you shouldn't go cheap on for a gaming PC.

It was a wire that was sticking up to far and hitting the fan, but now to button is broke, so fudge it. I'll send it back and get another brand. The thing wasn't cheap it's just i got it on sale. And if i can't get video to display i'll just send the board back. Hell at this point i'm half temped to just send everything back and forget about it.

I had the same problem with a Hard Drive. Reviews were really good, but a few people had some major problems with it. I was unlucky enough to be one of those. Thankfully the one I got afterwards worked perfectly.

As for what I plan to get for summer - I got myself a plan ;D

-Assassin's Creed III Digital Deluxe Edition
-Assassin's Creed Liberation HD
-Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry Standalone

Its considered to be one of the best jRPGs of last gen by a few.

Originally came out on PSP - I played a bit of the older ones that came out before it on the PSP - not the one on Steam though - its a pretty good old school style RPG series.

Chapter 2 is coming out next year on Steam.

If you want to spend extra monies sure get it ;o

Saints Row IV GotC is on sale at a great price too :(.

Then there's still Crysis Maximum Edition and Quake Collection I still need to get n_n.

Dayum sons.

I think I'll be getting Payday 2 at least and then focus on the rest mentioned above for the summer sale next year.

I REALLY want Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands DDE though.

Portal Bundle (10?)

Edit: ....so those are prices...some of them you could of gotten for REALLY cheap when and if they went down to a flash/daily deal o.O.

Humble Bundle tweeted that the next major humble bundle will be in January - this was tweeted last week or so.

Hope it ends up being worth the trouble.  :)

I'm so proud of my PC, it was so flipping worth it. 
Its just crazy.  Like everything about it has been way better than any PC I've ever had that was prebuilt. 
Every case I've had was a cheap tinny thing with one tiny 80 mm fan.  :P
But this one, the case itself feels good and it has 2 120 mm fans and 1 140 mm fan and one of which is LED and its sweet.  Just everything about it is awesome.

For me I spent about $25.

(http://i.imgur.com/6KeiVAx.png)

Racer 8 and Penguin's Arena were free from Indie Gala and Bundle Stars.

SpeedRunners was gift from a friend

Alan Wake Bonus Materials were Free on Steam Store.

Fallout Classic Collection 2014 I bought from GMG and used my 22% discount when it was 75% off already.

Jet Set Radio I got from the Humble Store when it was 75% off.

Everything else I bought when it was 75%-80% off the Steam store.

This makes it the most I've ever spent on a Holiday sale - I mainly go for PC games during the Summer sale and focus on console games during the holidays.

I'm needing a new work PC.

CPU is most important for me, as well as SSD and what nots that make programs and applications run faster. Having a good GPU would be nice but it's not too important to me.

Here's just my general thoughts right now: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9PCHQ7




Now to go through and trim the fat!!!

CPU stays, but what else can I cut corners on or find better deals to bring down the price? I feel investing in a good PSU is important since this computer will be on 20 hours a day. All savings from efficiency are worth it. Case wise it just needs to be functional. Don't have any care about looks.

Do care about sound though. Anything to make it silenter is worth investing in imo.


You guys have any input?

My laptop's hard drive is only 750GB which filled up fast with all the work I do. I've been using an external 1TB hard drive to augment it.

For this new PC I'll be moving over the external 1TB hard drive and making it internal so that I have 3TBs of hard drive space, which should last me at least until VizionEck releases hahaha.

I'd get this hard drive. 

Would you be able to skip the GPU for a while at least?  The CPU has an integrated GPU, not great, but it does okay. 
Otherwise you could look into getting the GTX 960.

Nice hard drive find!

What would be the advantage of skipping the GPU for a while? Are prices expected to significantly drop soon? Yeah a 960 would be a pretty viable option.


How do you like the case? Are the fans too fast and loud by default? Can they be controlled? Any issues fitting your 970 in it? Which 970 do you have?

I actually got that same HDD too. 
Not really a real advantage, just cuts the start up costs.  Which was beneficial in my case, but probably not as much in yours.  I'm not expecting any big price drops soon. 
The case is nice.  Fans are pretty quiet. I actually stopped them, and didn't find any different in sound. 
My only complaint is the size of the case.  It's a mid-tower, not a full one.  Which can make it a little cramped when installing the motherboard, but once that is in, it is good. 
As for the GPU, it's kind of the same deal.  I think it has something like 10.5" of clearance for a GPU.  Which is an issue for the 970/980 tier.  The bays are riveted in so its not easy to take them off for more clearance. 
I have the EVGA GTX 970 FTW, fits super well though.  There are some itx cards too.  This is mine.

CPU - you said keep it. 
Motherboard - probably cheaper options, but quality would be questionable.   
RAM - probably your cheapest option. 
SSD - you said keep it
HDD - 99$ 3 TB.  Keep it!
Video Card - I recommend the 970, but if cost is an issue the 960 or even the 750 TI ought to be good depending on your needs. 
Case - cheaper options are available, will probably lose the amount of included fans though. 
Power Supply   - recommend not going cheap on this part.  Probably the sweet spot for price/reliability.
Optical Drive - can you take one off a different computer?

Yeah the CPU I can get at my local microcenter for only $280 so it's a great deal too.

Motherboard could probably be cheaper yeah. I found one for $40 lol.

RAM-Neverdies is either crazy or crazy lucky. I was telling him about my ram and he called it "really overpriced." Apparently 2 years ago when he made his PC 8GB of similar quality ram was only $45.

SSD-I can go for another one, probably smaller too. I just need a SSD in general and this one seems pretty good.

HDD-YES!

Video Card-I'm thinking 970. It can be the part of the system that I splurge on for personal reasons :)

Case-yeah

PS-agreed

OD-I throw out all my old computers and such. Hording runs in my family so I try to avoid it any way possible.





I'm feeling pretty good about it overall though. Got the price down considerably compared to where I started.

RAM - Yeah, RAM seems to have gone up.   About 2.5 years ago I had written down 32 GB of RAM for 160$.  Which is about the same price range. 
OD - Hoarding runs in my family too.  Unfortunately I hoard as well.  :( 
Not as bad as my grandpa did though.  He was a master hoarder.  It was unlike anything I've ever seen.  100% serious too.

I know now I will need at least one thousand two hundred dollars canadian to build a good PC sorry for not using numbers my keyboard is so iced up right now

I want to make one that is a little big future proof as im sure i can get one now for like seven hundred or eight but i want it to last for a while plus i want to play all the latest games on high settings sixty fps

I guess Ill wait till next holiday probably by then they will have a ton of price drops because right now twelve hundred is a bit much and it sucks that the canadian dollar is messed up in comparison to the american dollar everything is so much more expensive now

Were he to buy a top of the line GPU, then yeah, it wouldn't be top of the line in 6 months.  But I'd hardly call that obsolete.  Still be usable for years.

Which GPU did you get? 


http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NH5T1MS/?tag=pcpapi-20

It's flipping huge so I've going to definitely have to go with a different case. I went with this one because it had better reviews than the one I was looking at, and I like the multiple display ports. Plus I have Amazon Prime so yah!



I've also figured out my PSU. This one is cheaper, and is one of the best PSUs on the market. Comes with a 10 year warranty.

GPU - Oh yeah, that one's giant. 
PSU - lol, everyone I know is getting that.  I got the 850, then I got my friend Michael to get the 750 when his PSU didn't work out.  Then I got Tacos to go that way too.  :D   It had amazing reviews.

Amazon is the way to go, even if you save few dollars buying somewhere else. The RMA process is so much better than newegg if you have to return a part. They don't even have you send it back first, they ship it out right when you do the RMA and give you 30 days to return. Plus the return shipping is free, but that might be because i'm a prime member, not sure.  I just love amazon and they deserve the success they've earned over the years.

Like Legend said.  The CPUs come with fans.  Very rare that they don't.  I haven't had any issues with the included fan. 
Mouse, keyboard, monitor, the optical drive, network card and speakers I already had. 
Mouse, Keyboard can be gotten pretty cheap 20-40$. 
Monitor is going to be somewhat expensive depending on size/resolution.  And you could use your TV. 
Optical drive maybe 20$.
Network card, difficult to find, but may be able to find one for 20$. 
Speakers, 20$ maybe more for better quality.  Less if you know where to look.  If you're using your TV, not an issue. 
As for the OS, that'll probably be the most expensive thing, barring a new monitor. 
Keep in mind those are US prices.

I just recently bought a new thirty two inch TV that may be a bit big but later on down the line I will get a monitor in the twenty inches area they dont usually cost as much as a TV

Personally no.  I don't like to mess with stuff.  Not a lot of benefit from it, in my opinion. 
Only real benefit would be extra performance, but at the cost could be big.  You're increasing heat, which can damage parts, you may void the warranty, and there might be weird software glitches.

Ive always wanted to get a great pc that way I can get all my third party games from there

Sure its much more expansive than a PS four but honestly the amount of money I could save because of the fact that PC games are cheaper is worth it right now a brand new ps four game is seventy bucks here

Ill still buy games like CoD on console because of the community though cause it seems like theres barely anyone playing them on PC

There's really no way around that. We're just lucky PC games are console ports. That delayed things. Like I got myself a Geforce 3 back in the day. It lasted me a year before I had to replace it. It was top of the line when I got it. Like I didn't replace it cause I was in school and switched to laptops for a few years. I built my machine about two years ago with a gtx 560Ti. It's lasted me till now, a little longer than my Geforce 3 did. But that's because I don't game at 1080p on my PC and console ports have been holding PCs back. Though I can run Crysis 3 at max settings at 720p and it's fluid. The situation would be no different if I had a gtx 590. That card shows up at minimum specs now. I'd still have to replace it now either way. Mid-range is always the best option. Always think now when building computers.
Title: Re: PC Community Thread

560Ti is definitely not obsolete yet. It still runs games at medium to very high (depending on game) at 1680*1050 or 1080p.

You do realize the 560 stopped showing up as minimum spec?  For any cross gen game, it's still useful, but it won't run Unity.  Hell it has trouble running Watchdogs at medium settings at 720p.

The 560 TI came out in 2011.  So 2 years before you had it.  It was barely high end when it came out. 
The 560 TI is what Watch Dogs recommends, either software issues or maybe somewhere else you have a bottleneck. 
The 590 is about the same as the GTX 670 though, so something to keep in mind.

Stopped showing up? Isn't it more important how it actually runs the games than something on paper? Minimum requirements are often battleship in my experience.
Also, I'm talking about the 560Ti. I run Shadow of Mordor at very high with medium textures at 1080p with a solid 30FPS.

The 590 is about the same as the GTX 670 though, so something to keep in mind. 

I lied about when I got it :P.  I forgot how long its been since I stopped making apps.  I got it June/July 2011.
Yes it does, but the "joys" of PC gaming. 
590 is not the same as a 670.  Horse power may be, but the 670 is optimized to do things better.  Good example: Tomb Raider Legends.  The "next gen" option in the game was created on the 360's GPU.  The 360's GPU was the first card out in the world with unified shaders.  Tomb Raider Legends ran like dog on every video card.  Even overkilling it with a Geforce 9800 (Their top of the line card at the time) couldn't handle it.  That card ran circles around the 360's GPU in terms of power.  Doesn't matter though next gen tech is next gen tech, power is irrelevant and new technologies are starting to get created.  Whatever card anyone buys now will most likely be outdated a lot sooner.  Though I'll concede that a beast now will last a bit longer, there's also costs to consider. 
A 590 is about the bare minimum you're going to be needed for games moving forward.  Bare minimum looks like dog in most cases.  You're better off getting a mid range card for 300 and getting it replaced in 3-4 years and buying another mid range card for 300 that runs circles around the high end card.  Spending 600 for a top of a line card that's going to need to be replaced at the same time as the midrange card just doesn't make sense unless you're running 3 monitors.  Note: All pricing is canadian :P.

Don't really have to worry about brand, unless you're particular to one brand over another. 
Otherwise, just look for what'll have the best cooling/highest clockrates.  They all use the same chips, but some will have higher clocks.  There's also outputs, but I don't think you'll have to worry too much about that unless you decide to get a bunch of monitors.

Found a perfect and cheap case at microcenter, but they were out of stock. So I went with last year's version of the case. Lost a usb 3.0 port but saved $5. Case ended up having a window in it so I guess that's nice.

Right now I'm putting in the dvd drive plus storage, then on wednesday I'll get the psu+ram+mobo so I can finish it up.

Found a perfect and cheap case at microcenter, but they were out of stock. So I went with last year's version of the case. Lost a usb 3.0 port but saved $5. Case ended up having a window in it so I guess that's nice.

Right now I'm putting in the dvd drive plus storage, then on wednesday I'll get the psu+ram+mobo so I can finish it up.



Any recomindations for a good pc game that really shows off what pc can do that consoles can't? I feel I should buy a game since this is my first powerful pc. Already own skyrim.

Both of mine do. 
The one on the bottom of mine has a little light on the left side away from the eject button, the one on top has a much smaller light about 3/4ths of an inch away from the eject button.

Might be the power cable. 
I had the issue where the data cable on the top drive was not completely connected.  Was too lazy to fix it for a while, but I got around to it.

Fudge.

The case has a small lip of plastic as part of its design at the top of the top pci i/o cover slot. This wouldn't be a problem with dvi like connectors that extend out, but with hdmi and display port it stops the plugs from fully fitting in. My mobo only has one pci3 slot so my only solution is to cut off that metal lip.



Fun!!!

Hahaha now the back of my case looks like a warzone with bent and cut metal twisted and deformed over the whole middle section, but it works! HDMI plugs fit fine and I think display port plugs will fit fine.

It will cost him hundreds of dollars to remove the data from the interior disc. Best Buy does it for $1,000.00.

Mainly cause of how difficult and fragile the disc is for a HDD and to extract it is difficult.

Lol, I went with an external drive that i'll only plug in when i need to install something. 99 percent of my games will be downloaded from steam or else where so i figured i didn't need an internal.

I love the idea of this case but it's got bad reviews from the two people that took their time to review it. Might look into something similar.

I feel like for 27 grand you could get a much better build.

The 3 HPCs by themselves make up half that. 
There's a bunch of parts that make up a good portion of the rest of it too.
GPUs - 2000$ or so. 
CPU - 1000$ is my guess. 
Drive - 600$
PSU - 600+$

Bad idea, in my opinion. 
The GTX 970 will be good enough to run the OR at pretty good levels, it may require turning down some settings, but that's better than SLI.
SLI is getting better, but it often has issues with stutter, and stutter is the death of good VR.

There's some kind of emu place, it's kinda like a paradise.  Me personally, is where I like to go to look at back ups of titles.  Makes me think of how things would be if it was possible to sell rom based memory sticks again.  I like to make comparisons between old and current formats and see how times have changed.

Legally, the method is to either play the disks from your PC, which few drives support Wii/GC games, or you can dump them with you Wii onto a drive, but that requires modding.

I guess if you put it that way but the image you used for FF7 was pretty bad example lol.

I still like the environment design of FFVII over FFIII's designs.

It was on sale for $2.44 few days ago but it sold out instantly.

It became available again today but the price went up to $5 or so.

I had some amazon credit thanks to the Bing Promotion so I took advantage and got 50 games for the price of $1 :D!

I'm not saying your wrong, as it does make sense. But it help a lot with my old router. It was doing 12 down and after portfowarding it was doing 40.

This new router tho... Portfowarding does noting, Dmz does nothing, shutting off the firewall does nothing.

I have a tech coming out today. He better have a few routers with him cause he isn't leaving till its fixed.

I thought port forwarding was to bypass security checks or to have better connection to services like VOIP, I'm sure a lot of people that are HxC PC gamers are hard wired and utilize port forwarding. I remember setting up port forwarding for Dust514 on PS3 for the game itself as well as VOIP for that game separately and it did improve those connections.

So I'd have a 1080p TV displaying 1280x1024.  Which isn't as nice.

Interesting. I'm not sure if that happens with mine (I usually extend anyway, instead of duplicating)

Extending doesn't depend on resolution.  That's what I do right now, and have my TV set to primary which means to log in, I have to turn on my TV, and some things don't like to be moved over to the secondary monitor.

Action includes Platformers, beat em ups and Action games like Devil May Cry and God of War.

Pro tip like piguy said - wait for humble bundle deals or steam summer/winter - a GREAT % to wait for is 75% otherwise 66% if you are planning to play a game immediately - anything higher than 75% is golden.

If you want a horror game - Fear - is 75% off for $2.49 right now: http://store.steampowered.com/app/21090/

You can buy the entire collection too which is on sale for the same % but its like $13 or so or you can check out individual titles within the series: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/12357/

BUT you can get the ENTIRE collection just for $7.99 at Bundle Stars: http://www.bundlestars.com/all-bundles/fear-bundle/

-----
If you like strategy RPGs try this one : http://store.steampowered.com/app/237890/?snr=1_7_7_204_150_2

Agarest series is on sale thanks to the release of the recent one 2 days ago or so. The first one is on sale for $3.74 and $5 for the complete edition.

It's a real time strategy game, very much like Age of Empires.  It's done by the same studio. 
It's considered to be very good. 
What Basil said, it is an enhanced version of the old game.  So Steam and Twitch support among other bonuses. 
Just to give an idea of what it looks like.

Space engineers sucks. Might be a good game, but the tutorial is non existent. Once I figured out kinda how to do things, it was just boring.

I'm just saying I dont like MineCraft so using it as an example as a game that I potentially like is wrong because I dont like it to begin with :O - in other words there are no games that I like that were Early Access on Steam and playable before their actual release - that is what I meant :o

Again like I said before - I rather wait for the full actual release and not play an early access/beta game. Play it for a few minutes or so to see how it is but long term no.

StarBound was released to be able to play like 2 years ago or so? I've played it then and havent touched it since.

"I wasn't saying the game itself was like Minecraft, I was just comparing this game's early access state to Minecraft's "beta". Minecraft was in "beta" for years but it was a complete game and fully functional."

Oh. But again, doesnt change the fact that I dislike Minecraft and doesnt change the fact that I dislike earlyaccess games/beta games.

I dont like Minecraft just like I dont like Sports games.

And I dont like Early Access games like I dont like tomatoes.

I was thinking about it....Titanfall but eh I'll pass on it.

Anyways, the indiegala bundle this week seems to be pretty good - grab it before the price goes up though if you are interested in it! I would of grabbed it myself but eh I already have blazblue and that honestly would of been my main reason to buy the bundle (alongside A Bird's Story which is a spiritual sequel to To The Moon - made by the same team) - there's I guess the bloodrayne spinoff and the double dragon but I'mma save my monies for other games ;o

Edit: Actually i might just bite cause some of those games alone will be $2.50 lol.

Power supply cables normally come with sleeves, same with sata.  Fan though, those are generally too small for sleeves.

My 970 looks good. Has a glowing blue "windforce" on it. I can then control that light through graphics settings.

I'm going to guess this is the one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125684#  I do like the back plate, which is something else i wanted because the fans will be facing down in my case, and i can paint some red to match the case. maybe pin stripe the edges leaving the center black.

They don't really drop prices unless they need to.  If AMD comes out and makes them a bad deal, or the next generation of Nvidia. 
So probably a year away, except I'm not sure about AMD.

I recall them remaking Toy Story's graphics.  I'm guessing for the 10th anniversary.

I mean this:

Doesn't look as good as this:

(http://www.gratistodo.com/contenido/fondos/dibujos-animados/toy-story/3.jpg)


But it can also just be the resolution of the images, thus I don't know for sure.  I just remember watching Toy Story at my little cousin's a few years back and thinking "Why does this look better than Toy Story 2?"

Nah you can do it, but it comes out of the publisher's pocket.

Also you'd have to do some complex behind the scenes things to make it true crossbuy, not just a bundle containing both versions. You wouldn't want a mobile buyer turning around and selling their steam key.

I can change this if I set the headphones as the default sound device. This works until I unplug my headphones, when the laptop still tries to play through the headphones (which are no longer plugged in) instead of switching to the speakers. I have to set speakers back as the default device for it to work. Any way I can make it so it switches automatically?

Oh and I've just noticed that it doesn't even recognise the microphone part of the headset

It should automatically o.O.

Is it overall sound that is affected or by a certain program? If its program, I know like Axon I use I had to relog in order to get sound through my headset.

If not - did you try control -> Sound settings -> recording tab? I remember having to fiddle in there once before to get sound working once :x. You might have to disable something or enable something.

No its with everything. I've been through all that and nothing works.

Headset works perfectly for PS4 though which is good

I got H1Z1 for my birthday. 

Visually, some things look awesome.  Other things look terrible. 
Controls have been a pain.  For some reason 95% of the time, (that number is actually too low) most of the controls don't want to respond.  I'm not sure if that's because I set it up for the controller or the game or something else.  I've been sitting here watching my character crawling away from a zombie for the past ten min.  I think part of that is that the sensitivity is too high, but I can't stand up, except one time I got lucky and he did what I wanted.  Punching worked the first time, but its not working right now. 
First time I was stuck under a tree crouching only able to turn the camera and punch.  Tried the keyboard and the controller didn't let me stand up or walk away.  :P

Not finding much yet.
Its really weird, like 3/4ths of the buttons don't respond or rarely do and the other 1/4th works pretty well.

On another note, despite not being that pretty it drives my GPU up the wall.  Loudest and highest temps I've seen in a game.

I'm afraid i wont be able to actually game on this living in this apartment. Having the computer and ps4 on at the same time with nothing running kicked the breaker. I really don't know what i can do about that... Which sucks.

To pair the DS4 with your computer, first put the controller into pairing mode by press and HOLDING the Playstation button and Share button at the same time. Hold these buttons until the light bar starts rapidly flashing.
Then go into your bluetooth menu and chose "Add Device". Select the "Wireless Controller" that pops up and chose "Pair". Once the pairing completes you should see your controller in your games menus.

So i think i might have a bad breaker, it's got to be. I have a 850 watt power supply, that isn't running full load either and it's tripping the 15 amp breaker and that should be 1400 watts before it trips.

Well, ended up running a cord to the washer plug. Now i'll test it again and see if it will kick that breaker.  I tried the other breaker in the same room and it wont run with the projector on. And i have no choice but to plug the projector in there as if i put the projector on the same side the systems are plugged into it will trip it. I've never lived in a place where i had issues running my stuff. But this is also the most power I've ever used in a single room before.. Maybe.

Fantastic series for me.

Possibly my most fav western franchise right now.

I enjoyed AC1, AC 2 was better and AC Brotherhood was everything AC2 was but better gameplay wise at least.

Gonna play Revelations soon.

Liberation and III soon afterwards ;p.

I'll get IV Black Flag and Freedom Cry next year and after that Unity and Rogue in 2017.

I'm thinking about coming up with my own gaming headset. I tried some sony DJ headphones last night at best buy and i was blown away by the sound quality. Way better than my current headset.

Check on these videos





I'm thinking about going with Sennheiser HD 518 or the Audio Technica AUD ATHAD500X with a blue snowball mic and the Astro mix amp.

The OS is still marked non-genuine.  The pirates will get the required updates, but they won't get any of the special optional updates or features.  They think that they'll convince them and they'll see the benefits of a genuine copy and move to getting it.  (Or so they say).

If you own the game, I think it's morally OK.

Haha I went out and bought Metroid Other M from Target just so that I could emulate it. If you have a wii or wii u, spend a buck and buy the game on the eshop and then emulate on PC.

Emulation is completely legal.  Certain methods of attaining games are not. 
PS2 emulation is great, because it's really easy to buy a legitimate copy of the game and put the disk into your computer and play it like that.  Only "difficulty" is getting a bios.

I think that's okay.  It's like a DVD, you can play it on a player, video game system, computer.  It'd be nice if it was easy to do it like that with a game.

If the game is new enough, then the store will replenish their bought stock, so if you buy a game, the store will buy more games.

A few interesting updates to SteamVR
Added support for chaperoning. This is a system that allows an application to show a user the area that is safe to move in while the user is in VR.

This is a new component of SteamVR that simplifies the process of adding VR support to an application.
Continues to draw an environment even if the application hangs.

For a game like Super Metroid yes.

If its a recent game (not that there are any systems capable of emulating well except for 3DS maybe) then no.

Just finished Darksiders 2, played/completed To The Moon Minisode DLCs and A Bird Story.


Darksiders 2 is pretty good but could of been better - 83 out of 100

To The Moon's DLC episodes were pretty good.

A Bird Story is OK but not recommended for someone who wants to play a game - only recommended for those who want to enjoy a light hearted short story. 62 out of 100

Windows 8 upgrade worked on pirate Windows 7.  I still want a fresh copy for install.  I need to clean my computer and put a fresh install in.

This game scares the shame out of me. Probably more so than games that are meant to be scary only being top by that Silent hill demo we had a while back. Something about the vast loneliness of space, Barreling a long at light speed only to come to a sudden stop because your about to plow directly into a star. The Sounds in this game are very well done and add the the over all scariness of it all. I'm still unsure of how i feel about the game, but i think I could really get into it. Once i find the point, but wondering around space is fun for now.

Good at trading, bad at everything else haha. I spent a bunch of credits on a fighting ship and some nice guns, only to find out that I didn't have enough energy to power it. When I pulled out my guns, life support and other systems would fail. So with only a few credits to my name, I went back to trading. After building up like 15 grand, I outfitted my ship with a mining laser and refinery so that I could try mining. Took a long time to get anything usable, and the money was pitiful compared to what I'd get from contracts and trading. So I switched back to contract work.

Then like an hour ago I decided to go all out with trading and not bother with contracts. I sold all my mining equipment and weapons, then got a total of 12 cargo spaces and a better warp drive. Since then pretty easily I've made it up to like 80 thousand credits!


HBU?

For transmissions, you need to investigate weak/strong/unidentified signals. Go to the system and just fly around. If you see one of the signals, lock on and disengage supercruise once close enough.


Then you'll find "something," hopefully a transmission.

For food and trade missions, you can see which places have it in the galaxy map. Filter to just that commodity, and look for places that show trade routes coming from them.

Found some gold and it wont let me hold it now. Really wish the game wasn't so sand box and gave you a starting path to make it more fun. Maybe star citizen will be better.

I have no Idea how the xbox fan base it going to take this game. I don't think they'll like it much. looking at the games that do sell on xbox and this.. It doesn't stand a chance to do well.

Yeah it is seriously confusing and hard to get into. I was the exact same as you, but eventually I found my way. Also how much are you making from missions? I was happy when I'd make a few grand.


For the console release they're probably going to add much better tutorials and training. Also don't worry fish! The game is continually be upgraded with free DLC. Maybe in a few months you'll like it better.

Never mind, it wouldn't be worth upgrading, I'd need to spend some serious cash. I might just upgrade to the top end of amd and sell him my processer for a decent price. At least that would get him started. And be a whole lot cheaper on me with decent performance boost.

I'm the opposite ;O.

From 2012-2013 I've mainly played games on PC. I did play a few from time to time.

Now a days - its more balanced. I would say now its

45% PC
45% Consoles
10% Mobile

I love my PC, but I feel like if Bloodborne were exclusive to it, I'd play it a lot less. 

Like I love the Witcher a lot more than the Order but I finished the Order.  Would have finished The Witcher if it was on console I think.

Kinda the same with me, but not really. I spend a lot of time pc gaming spur of the moment short bursts. Meanwhile consoles are long dedicated play sessions. Story based games or the like I prefer playing on console while 100 hour sims and rpgs I prefer on pc. With pc I can eventually soak more hours into the game.

I use mods a lot in Cities Skylines and KSP. I find the problem with Valve's system is it makes paid mods seem "official." They're practically endorsed by steam and the game devs now. If the mods worked like professional DLC, then this'd be fine. I'd personally hate it, but I wouldn't be against the concept of it.

However these mods are broken and glitchy. Many mods are not compatible with each other, and many mods break when game updates are released. They either need to stay free and stay mods, or become paid and become professional/official DLC simply made by individuals. This middle ground is just an abomination.

Opens the door for
Negatives:
-micro transactions. 
-fraud: people selling others stuff.  Already happened I heard.
-waste of consumer dollars: if a mod breaks after 24 hours theres no refunds.

Positives:
- people can live off modmaking - more and better mods but the small cut will reduce this majorly.

Not really, While not great a good mod could bring in more money than so of the higher paid you tubers and twitch players. You got to think it's not your IP and valve is giving you store front advertising. 25 percent for your time is pretty good.

Yeah 25% is fine. Probably 25% mod maker, 25% steam, and 50% game dev.

Yeah Valve fudged up.

Good idea or not, the community reaction has been extremely negative. I wonder just how severe the fallback will be from this. Will Valve slowly just abandon this idea and let it die from obscurity? Will they come out with a press release saying consumers suck similar to XBO dropping online DRM? Or will people finally stop praising Gaben and seriously saying "PC Master race?"

I disagree the modder should only get 25%. mods add so much longevity to a game and people continue to buy games because of the support mods add.
Edit: plus the modder made 100% of the content. I don't think sitting on a ip and letting other people create content is worth 50% of the revenue. I think it should be 25% valve 25% Beth 50% modder. I don't even think a paywall should be a thing. I think a donation button would be better.

Yes mods add a lot to games, but until now they haven't been modding for the money. 25% is a whole lot better than 0%.

Plus, modders are third on the Totem pole. Game developer is obviously first while steam is second. 45% to dev, 30% to Steam, and 25% to the mod maker. The 30% going to Valve is industry standard and perfectly fine. That's not changing.

So then you have 70% to split up between the mod maker and game developer. Would you really think the modder deserves more than the devs themselves? Doing so might be good business as a way to help support the mod community sure, but from a manhours/fairpercent perspective it's ludicrous.

Post by: FLGibsonIII on Apr 26, 2015, 02:06 AM
Hmm... you bring up some good points! Maybe they should all get 33.3%? IDK. I just don't think sitting on the ip is worth 45%(most) of the revenue. They already got their sale from the game. One could argue it's 100% the modders labor that's on sale. One could also argue the modder couldn't sell it without the game exisiting. One could argue this is only possible through steam invention of the program. I think all getting 33.3% sounds very fair. Also on the 25% is better than 0 thing. The same could be said for bethesda since they couldn't profit from this before. If my previous comment or this one sounds too aggressive I apologize since that is not my intention.
