Gyro capable controller?
I suppose this doesn't pertain to a game specifically, but I've been searching for a few days for a gyro capable controller for PC - I've been replaying Breath of the Wild via emulator (yay 4K + better textures and shadows) but find it somewhat annoying to need to pick up my phone and start a MotionSource server every time I need to complete a motion-only puzzle. I first picked up a cheap Chinese Wii U Pro controller look-alike, which claimed to have gyros and bluetooth, but found that it...
The anti-DRM thread
Just what we need, yet another garbage “service” to add to Steam/Uplay/Origin/Rockstar/Battle.net/Denuvo/Windows store/etc. Some people say this is competition with Steam but it isn’t. This is simply fracturing the gaming market and tying the pieces to different silos that create their own monopolies. Also we were told Steam would never restrict access to games but it’s already happening when it stops working on XP/Vista. Many titles are sold there with...
A game like Painkiller Black?
A favorite game of mine. Looking for a similar FPS single player. Game should: 1. Have somewhat of a story 2. Interesting and varied levels PK had many diverse levels 3. Ammo and health reasonably spaced throughout game 4. Decent quick saves 5. Secret areas or other puzzle like features (Loved the Tarot cards in PK) I've played STALKER series, Metro, RPG'S (Elder Scrolls, Witcher, Fallout NV and others) I like those games, but am looking for a "mindless" shooter with above elements....
Steam 2018 Summer Sale Incoming
I must admit lately I've been terested in browsing than buying.
Poll: Have you ever had gaming rage?
I was watching some hilarious gaming rage videos which inspired me to post: I’m going answer #3. I’ve never damaged anything but I’ve bashed the spacebar on my keyboard and clicked my mouse buttons really hard. Also a bit of swearing.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Surprising ACG reviewed this game this morning and mentioned it did pretty good in terms of story, exploration, and the rpg style upgrades. Also surprised that he said the PC version was not ready for review. But the game comes out Oct. 5th and I'm just wondering if this will be a unoptimized mess ? I haven't played an AC game since black flag and this one looks kind of like that except I do enjoy the Greek mythology setting. I also saw a video of someone benching it on PC at 1440p and it...
Bame bundle with new GPU?
Hi all, Would anyone know what game will be in a gforce nvideas 1070ti? Right now its monster hunter . Thanks.
Undying is 17 years old, takes 18 hours to finish
I can’t really do a poll for this one. I last finished Undying in 2007 and I decided to replay it. This is one of the greatest games of all time and one of my favorite games ever. I’ve literally finished it nine times now. I ran it at 2560x1440 + 4xTrSS at a constant 80FPS gsync. The graphics still look quite nice despite their age:
Player anger over Rainbow Six Siege changes?
So Ubisoft altering some "maps and icons" within Rainbow Six Siege to ensure the game complied with local (I.e. Chinese) regulations. Apparently Ubisoft could have created two versions, one for the Chinese and one for the rest of the world but they did not. So, the bottom line is that the game is being "censored" because of Chinese regulations AND because Ubisoft decided not to create a 2nd version. I don't play the game but find it interesting how Chinese laws are affecting...
Bard's Tale Kickstarter
By the same crew that just gave us Wasteland 2 and Tides. This brings back some memories.
Star Citizen Development Discussion (Is Derek Smart Right?)
EDIT: Thread title I realize that there is already one Star Citizen thread. When discussing the development team's progress it seemed things got heated pretty quickly, almost like a political debate. It detracted from actually discussing the game itself. Maybe we can discuss the development aspects of CIG here? A thread like this was suggested before, but I have not been able to find anything similar through searches. I'm hoping this wont end up getting closed. For what it's worth, I am a...
What are you playing now? [Chat + Discussions]
Like most of you in this aging forum, I'm getting older too. I haven't been playing much games but then a nerdrage ticked inside me and I spent pretty penny on GTX 1060 6gb from HD6870 (6 yrs old~). I also upgraded from i3-2120 to i7-3770 used. I used to play TONS of Dota 2.. probably over a decade from Dota 1. That game locks you in for 40-50+ mins with your teammates, so people end up getting VERY toxic. I was 5K MMR solo queue- top 98%~ percentile. But everyone is miserable....
Witcher 1 combat is terribad!
All this talk of playing old Elder Scrolls games made me give Witcher 1 another try. I was in chapter ..3... ? with the swamp area when I wandered away from playing the first time years ago. I just finished the intro / tutorial and combat is even worse than I remembered, it makes me long for the smooth, more polished (as opposed to more Polish) melee in Morrowind or Oblivion. (That's a joke, but as clumsy as Morrowind sword fighting is, it's still better.) Click on your enemy. Maybe...
Destiny 2 PC Discussion
for those that may have missed that its on PC now as well Runs till the 31st, accessed through the blizzard battlenet launcher running smooth as F right now
Latest patch here: A semi-open world RPG similar to the Deus Ex series, with hubs that have a lot of side-quests. It’s a phenomenal game with deep character design and excellent dialog/voice acting. Also each of the 7 clans can offer very different play-through styles. Melee combat is third person while guns are first person. The WESP community patch above can be applied to retail CD/GOG/Steam versions. You can choose bug fix only, or...
How big is your gaming display?
I have 3 - 20” monitors and I’m starting to not like them as the bezel is always in the way, not every game supports them right out of the gate and they literally take the whole desk. So was thinking of getting a 30” or bigger one, maybe curved. The 2xxx resolution isn’t too much, but 3xxx is upwards of $1k. What do you guys game on?
About to start and got home before the beginning this time. I'll be posting the big announcements from opening as they happen.
Does anyone happen to know if I can buy a US version of a steam game from where I live in Canada using my VPN? The game's 50% off if I buy it on the US site. I mean, will it work when I don't have the VPN running?
Anybody getting BF V pre-order on Origin
I am thinking of joining Origin so I can get BF V early access. Anybody else planning on it? I didn't get into Black Ops 4 so this is the only new shooter on the horizon for me.
All I want for Christmas is RDR2!
Holy cow did you guys see Red Dead Redemption 2?!! Clearly if it also launched on PC sales would be pushing over a billion bucks. Any bets on if it’ll make it to PC? I don’t recall the 1st doing such.
