Managed to grab an Asus tuf 3080 last Thursday. I had to grab it in a bundle with a b550 motherboard (thaaaaanks newegg). I'm too damn lazy to return the MB so I'll probably end up upgrading my media center with it and a spare 1700x I've got laying around.
That dude. UGH.
After you aggro him, run back down the steps and jump off the cliff into the water below. Wait about 30 seconds then jump your way back up....and stealth kill the fucker.
Don't feel bad about the cheese, you run into him again later and he has two health bars. By then you'll...
Game is OK, I think I've dropped maybe 15 hours of playtime on it. I'm going to let it cook for awhile...maybe see what state the game is in 6 months or so.
If your expecting a 'metroidvania'...this aint it. Think a more classic castlevania with randomized levels and more modern-ish combat...
I noticed in my last playthrough that turrets and operators (even destroyed ones) give a decent amount of mineral materials. Spare parts do as well, so once are all over the place late game you can get quite a stash
There are still a decent amount of recent SP games that have really grabbed me. Dark Souls 3, Dishonored 2, and Witcher 3 come to mind.
I do find myself dropping games half way through (Far Cry 4, Metal Gear V, Batman Arkham Knight being recent casualties), and that sure the hell never happened...
Not so 'random' at all then
Here's my list
SPACE MOTH DX
VAMPIRE OF THE SANDS
CORPORATE LIFESTYLE SIMULATOR
THREE DEAD ZED
HUNTSMAN THE ORPHANAGE
Exactly same games. That's pretty horseshit.
(Commador64/128 after that, followed by a love affair with my Dad's Amiga)
SNES and Genesis
PSX, Saturn, and N64
Dreamcast (Imported it, and bought a US version), PS2
(Started on PC around here...I have Quake 3 Arena for the dreamcast to thank for it!)
Another recommendation for the Node 605....really, the logo is much more subtle/faded then the official pics make it look. I've had one for a few years and I'm still very happy with it. It's not as easy to work in as a modern ATX case (cable management is a pain), but no HTPC case is.
Wish this game got more attention...mainly because I'd like the devs to continue working on it :)
I just got to the 'Class 3' tier (out of 4 speed classes)
Here's a 'Speed' trial on one of the faster tracks in the game so far
Windforce OC is a solid card - I've had mine about a week or so. 2050 sustained boost - (although I probably need to play around with the fan curve), 9200 on memory (mine has Samsung memory, if that matters).
Yet another jet.com deal that'll last for 5 min....
Jet.com - Prices Drop As You Shop
-$14.87 for opting out of free return/paying with debit
-$39.08 with coupon code 'SHOP10"
Best deal I've seen so far, ordered one this morning
I have this monitor, it's solid with two exceptions...
It will NOT do 75hz outside of freesync. You can force 75 but it'll frame skip.
Mine has pretty bad backlight bleed in one corner. Looking at reviews this doesn't seem to be the norm though.
Looking good, but I'm still not sold. What made Quake 3 so amazing was the mods....and nothing since ID Tech 4 is moddable for shit. I really hope I'm wrong and they release a modding dev kit. I spent thousands of hours playing Q3 between Vanilla, Rocket Arena, and Threewave (god I miss CTFS).
I ran some tests yesterday
GTX 970, 1080p
42.82 (with exclusive full screen)
49.28 (without exclusive full screen)
Just updated my drivers to 364.51
DX12 - 74.97 (!!!)
I haven't tested DX11 yet, but holy shit.....I had to double check that my game settings are the...
I beat the DLC last night and decided to start a NG+ playthough
No dice, I've ran into a bug where the new HoS runesmith enchantments are stripped off your items when starting a NG+ game. Fuck that - I spent way too much times farming out gold to let that slide! Waiting for a patch :(...
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0 is $240 now.
Tempting as hell, going SLI should give me enough juice to drive an Oculus at solid frames....but by the time I pick one up I'm willing to bet the next gen of cards will be out.
So, this scenario:
I upgrade my main rigs CPU/Mobo
I take my old CPU/Mobo and upgrade my media center
I throw away my media centers old CPU/Mobo
Under old versions of windows I'm not buying a new license...just reinstall and call MS when I need to activate.
Under Windows 10 it sounds like I'm...
