    I turn off in-game music...do you?

    I committed this terrible sin. Forgive me! I've replaced the soundtrack with a bunch of music overhauls. I only listen to TES OST when doing work. Sometimes turning off in-game music is better because the game engine can overlap by playing 2-3 tracks at once. 1) it's just immersion breaking as...

    Intel Hasn't Yet Resolved its Supply Challenges: Top Executive

    @R-T-B I'm sorry, I have nothing to add that wasn't even a debate. They just don't want to admit the old dog came back to bite and take advantage of the situation. Some people saw this a mile coming. You're on point, I was comparing my Phenom II 960T, the side-grade i5-2400 and some older cpus...

    Sexy Hardware Close-Up Pic Clubhouse.

    Nice pic, my LG G5 is annoying, worse battery life than all of my Samsung GS3's that I've owned combined, coupled with a faulty finger print sensor that works 50% of the time because the phone deactivates it and cleaning it with IPA only helps a bit, a camera that's only good for shots outside...

    Diablo IV Announced at BlizzCon 2019

    Yeah, and previous games did it better in every way compared to the latest entry, I don't think they can top their own best work pre-2010. That's why they're going back to basics with remasters. Now they're adding BS characters and McGuffins all over the place to fill in plot holes, just to be...

    Diablo IV Announced at BlizzCon 2019

    Who asked for this? I know I didn't. There are enough good clones that are so similar in gameplay, you'd think why you'd want to play this. I personally prefered D2 for mods and the story (also able to play offline or local co-op), mechanically wise I mostly liked D3 for streamlining to reduce...

    What are you playing?

    Who cares what other people think. It's your own opinion of the game that counts the most. At first I thought it was just another indie game, but I found out about mods and the cool stuff you can do. I never played it myself, but I did enjoy watching some people try their hand with it. You can...

    What are you playing?

    Right, I was playing modded Skyrim VR for a week straight. The end. IT WAS AWESOME. Crashing half of the time when I equip favorites and freezing at random, and couldn't stand the motion sickness combined with blurry textures and jagged edges, but who cares, IT'S MORE SKYRIM DUDE. I like how I...

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Delayed, Still Coming in 2020

    I'll feel better if ZeniMax delays The Elder Scrolls 6. 'Cuz Bethesda Game Studios is gonna need the time to get rid of those thousands of "features" bugs. I'm not paying for an early-access game or supporting them, since they lost all of my trust. Then there's Mechwarrior 5 Mercenaries, it...

    The show off your tech related purchase thread

    They're comparable to most of the Samsung's offerings, still having DRAM and having a much better price. They're the only SSD's I run in most of my systems apart from some ADATAs. I just wish I could get 1TB/2TB drives for a better price sooner, even though the prices have dropped considerably...

    Silverstone Lucid LD03

    And this reminds me why we can't have nice things anymore for a reasonable price. Thanks, economics! :rolleyes:

    Silverstone Lucid LD03

    I think they should have stuck with continuing their Raven series ITX cases instead. I mean, RVZ03 is pretty great and nearly everyone gave glowing recommendations (no tempered glass, but I got over it pretty quickly once I knew thermals were really decent), but there's still room for...

    The show off your tech related purchase thread

    IT'S HEEEREEEEE. YUSSSS. Ahem. Sorry for the picture quality. I'm using my aging LG G5 in poor lighting. Snapped the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240 before Amazon UK went out of stock until early November. NEW TOYS YAY! Who waits for Black Friday anyway... You can see the block of Deepcool...

    What are you playing?

    Ahh, I see you're a man of culture as well. Good. Good... Elder Scrolls gang for life! I got around trying modded Daggerfall Unity, and it was pretty cool to try out. I think Morrowind was the least I've ever modded a game so far, huh... Seriously that game barely needs mods because it has so...

    What are you playing?

    I've finished Leon A-Claire B part of RE 2 remake quite some time ago, I had to thank myself for not watching any let's plays of it 'cause it would have ruined it entirely. Well, there was a certain scene in the original that pulled my heartstrings the first time I saw it, it didn't punch me in...

    Arctic Releases the Liquid Freezer II Series AIO CPU Coolers

    Let's hope retail units have the baseplate looking finished, I assume that pic is from a show unit. The the small fan doesn't bother me, the AIO is still gonna be working fine with/out it. I consider it an improvement, because the heatsink on some motherboard VRMs can be fairly small, and...

    Arctic Releases the Liquid Freezer II Series AIO CPU Coolers

    They're trying too hard to look like the people who type "first" in the YT comments section. That hasn't died out yet, hasn't it?

    Arctic Releases the Liquid Freezer II Series AIO CPU Coolers

    Bought the 240 version instantly, I really like the pump block design, and the small VRM fan is what I am most interested in. I'm going to compare my aging 2.5 year old Deepcool Captain 240 which is still showing no signs of degradation and is quite similar in price here in UK at the moment...

    When can 16gb of RAM become a bottleneck?

    I'm running BattleTech w/ RogueTech, and sometimes I cap out at around 12GB+ just for the game + another 1.9GB for Steam/Windows, when I'm in the menus after loading a save. It gets worse as you get more equipment and AI turns can drag on longer as I run the game normally, until eventually...

    [FF] Resident Evil 2 Steam Code

    Well, that was unexpected. It was my birthday yesterday and I forgot about that completely. So, thank you guys! I'm going to give this a try once I get back from work.

    [FF] Resident Evil 2 Steam Code

    Huh... I was waiting for another sale at some point, it's been on my wishlist since the announcement. I need a rest from all of the RPGs lately. I like to test my luck. Count me in.

    Upgrade to the super

    TL;DR - If the upgrade won't make you lose more money than you'd like to. Go for it. But heavily consider the difference between the two cards before you pull the trigger. Unless you can trade your current card for that, it's not worth it IMO. The improvement is tiny, the only real upgrade is...

    What are you playing?

    You know what I've heard recently is that negative media reaction/attention is actually good these days. Controversy, arguments and what-not, give more clicks! Not everyone wins though. Didn't Rockstar pay people to make GTA V controversial on purpose to get more sales? Anyway, I'm riding my...

    What I think about Piranha Games as I've lost hope for the BattleTech franchise.

    I was slightly disappointed when I found out BattleTech was a top-down turn based game, But when I found out it was modifiable I jumped on buying it on Steam immediately. I prefer testing my reflexes and quick thinking in a real-time game, that's why I think even MechCommander Gold is still...

    What I think about Piranha Games as I've lost hope for the BattleTech franchise.

    You just reminded me that Warhammer 40K exists, the last good game I played was Soulstorm/Dark Crusade. Everything after that just couldn't impress. It seemed like it peaked there.

    What I think about Piranha Games as I've lost hope for the BattleTech franchise.

    Yeah, it's nice when you find something to unwind with that actually seems worth the little time we have on this rock. But I'm worried about the things that I have established that I like already and want something similar based in the same on-going story made by whoever is managing the lore...
