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!

I have a couple of HD audio things on the motherboard that work perfectly.

I read one method that said turn down the deferred anti aliasing and I have done and so far, Battlefield 3 has been good though I said that last time and it ended up returning.

I've been trying to monitor the GPU performance see if there is any abnormalities and so far there's not much I can really say apart from sometimes there appears a small dip in GPU power in some cases but that's about it.. Hardly anything major from the looks of things.

Sometimes I do wonder if it is the connection though. It happens in Battlefield 3, Black Ops 2 and Guild Wars 2. Never had any problems with single player games from what I recall. I could try and play battlefield 3 single player and see what happens to be fair.

That's both quite cool, but also incredibly nerdy.

 

I can imagine some rather large anti-social sunlight-deprived manchild operating all that.

It sort of makes you think

 

How much?

 

And

 

Why!?

Thats probably one of the best games you are going to play. Especially if you know about chernobyl. £.3.5 if okay, but you can prob buy it on DVD for around that anyway.

I don't think so, unless you download it illegally. Counter-strike: Source is only £14 on steam and that game will run on anything built within the last 5 years, so compatibility isn't really a problem.

I've only ever tried a few mods in crysis. That game for me, is pretty much just a benchmark or a good place to mess around on. Its great to enable god mode and edit all your stats and just mess around with the enviroment. The game itself, imo, is very average.

Gotta say I was highly disappointed in the demo. All valve games seem the same to me :(

 

Will definetly be picking up Assassin's Creed 2 now instead.

 

But the question is will I get it on PS3 or PC?

Personally I think AC2 is more suited to a console but if you've got a good pad and can be just as good if not better on PC as long as it's not a shoddy port. I'm gonna wait for the reviews to see if it runs fine on PC first.
