    I Need an Action+Story Driven Game for the Wife

    There's not as much combat, but Mirror's Edge has the adventury running and such. Otherwise, Tomb Raider for sure.

    Worst games of 2017

    XCom 2 - WotC was one of the best expansions of a game that I've ever played. Wildlands was a good distraction for a while too.

    Four-Player Co-Op Game GTFO Announced

    True, good weapons and decent level design, but maybe DLC'd to death? Who knew that the concept of 4 players vs mobs could be so fun? If only a certain company genre could come forward and make this game, instead of their fans being left 4 dead.

    Xbox One’s First Original Xbox Backwards Compatible Games Now Available

    Having played both the PC and XBox versions of that game, I preferred the PC version. That they should put on Steam.

    How many of u not even getting current gen console at all, & just sticking to PC gaming ?

    As long as they keep making NBA 2K for PC, it'll be my primary gaming method. I do own a PS3, PS4, Wii, and an Xbox 360, but a majority of the gaming in our house is done on PC.

    is it possible to access plex content via the cloud outside your network?

    Yeah, if I'm not mistaken, just configure a port forward on your router to your plex box IP via TCP/32400 (default) and you should be good.

    Will ipv6 kill off most forms of piracy as a whole? Unless there's a way to proxy the connections, I don't think anonymity would be possible with it.

    Steam Link.. Yay?

    I haven't really tried twitch shooters, but NBA2k16 is pretty fast and it keeps up with the action pretty well. I've played XCOM2 on it as well and it was great. Again, all my experience has been over gig ethernet though.

    For those with families: How much game time do you get?

    During the week, a couple hours scattered throughout the afternoon through 8 PM, from there I have to fit in a shower, reading and getting to sleep. Friday and Saturday, I game if I'm not hanging out with the family or cooking/grilling/smoking.

    Overwatch On Sale For $35

    At first, yes. He did a lot of watching us at first then we left him on his own and he was good about staying in single player. A deathmatch type game where teamwork is less important would probably be a good start and Overwatch would be a good place to start, especially if you disable...

    Overwatch On Sale For $35

    My son has been playing L4D2 since he was younger than that, so it really depends on your kid. I muted anyone trying to talk to him and told him only to play singleplayer until he got older, but then again, minecraft wasn't the monster it was now. I'd start with Minecraft and see how'd he do...

    GTA V - 7.5/10 I just completed the single player campaign and while it was a step above GTA IV, it felt much shorter. The world was more alive and brighter than the bleak rainy world in Liberty City, but it feels like there's a lot of unexplored opportunities, probably visited in the...

    Can't connect to another computer on network

    Yes, because in a non-domain situation, your local creds are passed to the other device for authentication. Since all your other workstations are logged in locally with the same username/password, it makes sense that the one box that's one off can't authenticate to the remote box. You can try...

    X-COM 2 Looks really good. Is it worth the $60

    Great game, still a bit unoptimized, so prepare for some slowness from time to time or graphical weirdness. I just went through a full playthrough and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think I need some time to reflect and think about whether or not I like it more than XCOM: EU/W, but it was a blast...

    Anyone here play either Doom or Wolfenstein 3D when they first came out?

    My first PC was a AST 486SX/25 with 2 MB of RAM. At first it didn't play Doom, but after a $75 upgrade, I was able to play either just fine. There were a few games I couldn't play because of the lack of math coprocessor (DX CPU), but otherwise, I had a great time.

    No More Pirated Games In Two Years

    I stopped pirating when I really started learning about NetSec, and also when I learned that if you wait long enough, steam will sell a game that will actually reach my threshold of what I would spend. Competition in the marketplace for both vendors and content makers is a good thing.
