PC Gaming thread.

Welcome to the PC Gaming Thread!

 

 

Now I know there is a PS3 discussion thread and an Xbox 360 discussion thread.

 

So thought it was about time us PC gamers had an area to talk about...

 

  • Upcoming Games
  • Latest Releases
  • Modding
  • Favourite Games
  • Gaming set up
  • How you feel as a PC gamer.


If you ever need advice on any of the above then this should be your first stop for all your PC gaming needs.

 

So go ahead and get chatting!

Quantum Conundrum is up for pre-order. £8.99 for the standard game and for £12.59 you get the soundtrack and future DLC packs.

Bargain :D

If any of you guys have Max Payne 3 on PC, how well does it run and how does it look?


First played it and noticed a shed load of screen tearing, turned MSAA for 8x down to 4x and put FXAA on in Nvidia control panel and that helped alot, looks great and runs great.  

 

Loving the online on it, had some memorable moments on it with only played a few matches on it.

I played it on PS3 and enjoyed it, it was just humerous and fun (although may not be some peoples type of comedy) made a change from the serious games i've been playing.

Smelled burning from my PC last time I booted it up, think I might give that a rest for abit.

 

Looking at buying a new monitor, not sure if I should get this one:

or a 120Hz one.  I'd like dual-monitors to go alongside my Samsung one at the moment.

I'd recommend those Dell ones, I've two of their IPS ones in the house, one of which is the model before that one (has CCFL lighting not LED) and they're brilliant.

 

Sometimes I wonder though would this have still done the job though and I could've saved the extra money

Yeah it's pretty good (although I preferred Crysis Warhead out of the three) and with the DX11/High Textures pack it looks phenomenal.

You beat someone in gold and it put you in GM?! Nice work anyway :P

 

I'm playing DayZ more and more now, had some pretty epic moments on it.

 

Also I didn't really like Crysis 2 that much, 1 and Warhead were much better.

It's because of the lack of players on the beta ladder. The beta is for the arcade so most people do that, I noticed there was ladder and went and messed about on it, basically everyone in the GM on it is High Gold+ XD Since they're the "top 200" on the ladder.

If anyone bought the Humble Bundle V, they've just added Braid, Lone Survivor and Super Meat Boy free for all those that (I think) paid over the average!

If you bought it before they were added you get them free, for any later comers its over average.

ZvP looks like it'll be all kinds of fun in HotS. Not gonna make too many comments on balance as we've not played and it's not even beta yet, but 22 range on Tempest looks a tad insane, and the new Terran stuff looks really boring and quite rubbish in comparison to the Zerg and Protoss stuff.

Flash wins KeSPA Exhibition Tournament, not dropping a single game, and wins his first game vs Stork with half of his keyboard keys being broken and not working.

 

Very impressive play for someone who's only been playing for 6 weeks, much better than the SPL stuff, I can see him being fighting in Code A, and maybe even Code S within months, the other BW guys were great compared to SPL too, but Flash was on another level compared to them.

600 apm.... Was consistently between 500-600 for about the 5-15 seconds they had it on the screen...

 

 

Krater is out tomorrow! I've had access to the pre-alpha and it seems pretty good, cannot wait :)
