    Starfield

    Eh, there's always something to keep me busy in the meantime. I want my first play through to be relatively bug free so I'm all for delays and it also puts less pressure on the developers. Gamers are so entitled these days always needing instant gratification. The real world always has delays...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    On my first play through I felt as if the late game bosses ramped up the difficulty pretty good. I had basically no room for error as 1-2 hits would kill you. So you had to learn their moveset and dodge/roll/parry almost perfectly every time. You also dealt less damage so the fights lasted...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I think I've settled on a Starscourge build for the rest of my playthrough. The ash of war ability is so much fun and it's a colossal weapon so it staggers enemies pretty well. I liked Bloody Slash with Nagakiba but the bleed didn't proc that much for me to like it.

    Thymesia: Memory Frontier

    Anyone else had performance issues? Frame rate was good but there were random hiccups every time I rotated the screen too fast. I turned off motion blur and still had that issue. Shouldn't happen on a RTX 3080. Gameplay also felt stiff and not as responsive as I'd like. I think this is a pass...

    Be Quiet Silent Base 802 vs Dark Base Pro 900 vs Fractal Meshify 2 vs Fractal Torrent

    I think any of those would do. The best for airflow would be open front mesh. So it basically just comes down to looks after that. I have the Torrent cause I love the design but the cable management isn't the best.

    Looking for a gaming chair.

    Hmm I've had a very different experience. I am using a 2022 Secret Lab chair. Went from a Gesture to a Secret Lab because the Gesture gave me back pain. Not sure if it's because I always reclined in it at an angle rather than sit upright. I tried adjusting the back support numerous times but...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    So I was playing NG+ and all of a sudden got very bored with Blasphemous Blade so I spent 2 hours trying all different kinds of weapons. I settled on Malikeths Black Blade cause I liked the special attack and also its ability to stagger enemies. I assume all colossal swords have a high stagger...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Elden is my first Souls game so I don't know which I should go back and try. I'm wondering if Elden has spoiled me and I would be disappointed with the previous titles. I was thinking of trying either DS3 or Sekiro after I'm done with Elden.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    That doesn't sound healthy bro. A game should not be giving you that much anxiety. Try some CBD oil and just relax and go in. Confessor is a good hybrid with swords/spells.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Which colossal swords are you using? I don't have nearly enough STR and END to dual wield but that seems like a strong build.

    I thought all you do as mage is the kamehameha beam and stun lock bosses til they die.

    Next Tomb Raider

    Did they make her more homely in Shadow? I hope they go back to the original character design if they ever make another one. She was smokin in the first 2 games.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Took me 2 days to kill Maliketh. You have to time the attacks on his 2nd form almost perfectly or you get 1 - 2 shot even with like 50 vigor. I hear STR plays a large role in damage mitigation but I don't have that many points there. Maliketh is the hardest boss I've face thus far. So...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I can suspend reality for that kind of stuff. It was just the character animations felt off and the game seemed rushed. RE2 remake didn't seem to have those issues. It looked like guns had weight to them when Leon and Claire were using them.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    The physics always felt off to me in RE3 remake. Jill and Carlos carrying and swinging around rifles/rocket launchers/rail cannons like they're made of cardboard.

    Razer - Huntsman Tournament Edition TKL $51.99 Amazon/Best Buy

    Some of the Amazon reviews are saying these switches are loud. Do you think they are clickety clackety or near silent?

    Anyone else fed up with PC gaming?

    I'm not fed up with PC gaming as far as running into any driver issues or anything. But I do play more on a controller now than keyboard/mouse. I do like shooters with mouse/keyboard but any adventure/action game I prefer my Razer Wolverine Ultimate controller now.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Do you guys think summons make the game too easy? I have a +7 mage that takes aggro in most boss fights which allows me to do dragon breaths/shouts. Maybe the bosses get more challenging later.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Oh ya youre right. I killed a huge dragon on a hill that didn't even fight back. I wonder if it was bugged or he was just too fat to get up. I do love dragon breath attacks though especially the rot one which is a DOT.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Respeced last night cause I was lacking damage. I put more point into INT for my confessor so I can use dragon breaths and also now my strongest sword is the meteor ore sword. I have the moonveil but I need more INT. Anyone main moonveil? I like the gravitas special of the meteor ore sword but...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Anyone know the best controller setup to change items without using the D Pad? I find it's not very tactical to take my thumb off the joystick to change items on the D pad. I don't wanna shell out for the Xbox Elite controller either. What are yall custom controller configs?

    Bad mouse grip leading to chronic pain?

    Nice. Did you get a large or small? I did their credit card measurement test and went with a small even though my palm was the same width as the credit card. The small fits well on me.

    Delta Carpio pads are a game changer for anyone with CTS. Saw a random ad for them and decided why not.
