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!

Don't tempt me.  Although, I heard it was a buggy broken mess where you were lucky if you could actually finish the main story line.  Is this not true anymore?



At release there were a few buggs that annoyed me. The only bug that stood out was the frame rate dropping to about 5-10 fps when I entered one of the hotels swiming pool room's. I think it was patched though and I would recomend it.

 

EDIT: I really hope Rage and Qunatum conundrum go on sale. I think they are the only two I am interessted in now.

Done deal then. Most things can be fixed on PC anyway.

 

Waiting on Rage also, was hoping it was the community voted winner.  It will pop up as a daily deal for sure though.

In two minds about Fallout New Vegas, I probably won't end up completing up but that really is a good price.

What you guys think of that Anno game?

 

I saw that on sale, is it like Sim City? Might be a decent thing to keep me occupied until the new Sim City comes out.

It's no Sim City. ;)  http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/anno-2070

 

However, as long as you're not interested in the micro-management and overall freedom that Sim City excels in, then Anno 2070 is 'decent'.  Tho, you missed the sale. :p  Advisable purchase for a good enough discount.  Current 33% is not good enough.

 

Unfortunately, Anno 1404, arguably the best edition is not 'Currently available for sale' on Steam. :(

Only bought Max Payne 3 this sale. I am restraining myself these days.

I haven't played over 55% of my 220 or so games (as in started them) and adding to that list would only make it worse. I'm not only buying things I actually had an interest in.

If you're using that webtool it also includes each and every single "DLC" as a game, so it's not very accurate until they fix that, and it doesn't count as them being played regardless if you've played the main game.

I'm not sure if I should get Rage. I was hoping for a bigger discount. I think I have spent too much but AOE3 and Metro may sway me still.

I assumed so, which is why I'll pass.

 

It's now a toss up between AOE3 and Rage, both of which I know I can run maxed.  The logical me says to avoid Rage given that there is no modding and a minimal playtime of about 12 hours.

 

Sometimes I hate sales.

(This is a bit late, but been busy copying over files)

 

IT'S ALIVE!

 

 

 

Yeah terrible image quality I know, but crappy camera and crappy lighting in my room :(

 

 

Of course, when putting together a gaming PC, it's fitting to run a game or two to see what it's capable of. There was naturally only one possible choice, the game that should be used to test all new gaming PC's -

 

Spoiler

Dem graphics :)

Just Cause 2 on flash, If you still don't have it yet... 3.50 or 5.20 with all the dlc, still one of the best games I've played and best open world I've played, only downside is some of the areas are a tad repetitive after a bit and story is bad, but who cares about story.

 

Also a multiplayer mod coming out for it soon :D

A little surprising really, would have thought that people would have pre-ordered TL2 and got Torchlight for free. Some of the other public votes seem odd to me, why vote up the cheapest game? Surely a 75% discount on a £10 game is better than on a £2 game.

I just pick whichever haven't been on sale yet, if there's 2 which haven't, then I vote for whichever I don't have, if I have both I vote for the one I believe is better ^^
