    (RUMOR) Konami is set to revive Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill

    You're right I guess. I was speaking more generally and not just in regards to Konami, though their handling of the SH franchise is a good example of what I don't like to see in the game industry -- and there are many like it unfortunately. It's crazy to me that og SH1-3 aren't available on...

    (RUMOR) Konami is set to revive Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill

    I just wish great classics like the original Silent Hill series and many others were kept available to the masses and modernized. I'm not really a huge fan of remakes. Just keep your great old games available and easily playable on modern systems. Make sure they have things like widescreen...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Sounds amazing. I'll give it a go soon. I enjoyed the original half-life around its original release time, but it's much rougher to play now. This seems like a much improved experience.

    Blood and Cryptic Passage/Plasma Pak :blackalien::vamp::zombie:🦇🐀. I'm pretty hooked to this game, having never for some crazy reason played it until this year. It may well be the greatest shooter ever crafted, as some have claimed. In any case it's a really, really fun shooter, and it seems...

    Duke Nukem Forever’s 2001 build appears online, may fully leak in June

    Awesome. Best of luck getting it to run. I found the PS1 games locally not too long ago and picked them up because they were in perfect condition, cases and all. Be something else to have the original PC game though. I love DN3D and Blood and all those classic shooters. You might actually...

    Duke Nukem Forever’s 2001 build appears online, may fully leak in June

    If you own the Steam version it works automatically with Raze, a gzdoom fork. And there's an enhanced resource pack for it on moddb.com which upscales everything. You just drag and drop that file onto raze. It's excellent and doesn't try to change the original look of the game. Raze also works...

    Serious Sam Siberian Mayhem

    I considered purchasing both games in the 2-pack deal, but most people seem to think this game is better than SS4, so I didn't bother. I'm looking forward to playing with the survival and co-op mode though and am excited for future games in the franchise. It makes me happy that we are still...

    Serious Sam Siberian Mayhem

    Game is 20% off on Steam until May 16th. I beat this in one sitting lol. Needless to say, I really enjoyed it. It's a little short, but it's priced right in my opinion. Great game (y).

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem (released January 25th, 2022 on Steam, action-adventure FPS) I beat this game in one sitting on normal difficulty in 6.5 hours The game isn't too long but is really fun if you like fast, frenetic shooters with massive hordes of enemies. It's the funnest I've ever...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    I think it's a very subjective thing, choosing whether or not you should upgrade or not at a given time. I would just do what you feel is best and what you enjoy. On another note, I'm starting to wonder why Nvidia doesn't just start calling cards by their PSU requirement at this point. The...

    Recommend a 750w PSU

    Seasonic has been around forever and is basically the gold standard. And many Corsair PSUs are basically just rebranded Seasonic PSU's, from what I understand. EVGA has a good reputation too. You would probably be fine with any of those three brands. When it comes to efficiency, Titanium >...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Sword and Fairy 7 (released October 21st, 2021 on Steam, story-rich Chinese singleplayer action-adventure RPG) This is a very beautiful and enjoyable game. My Completion time for it was 20.5 hours. Its graphics, sound, and visual design are amazing, and there are a pretty wide variety of...

    Need some help with our church VMix machine

    Seems like a mobo or PSU/power related issue. Try resetting the CMOS manually if you haven't. Also, try a different power outlet and swapping the PSU for a different one if you can. I would also double check the polarity on all the motherboard connections and make sure the it is properly...

    R7 5800X3D, R7 5700X, R5 5600, R5 5500, R5 4600g, R5 4500, R3 4300 incoming

    I decided to swap my 9900KS and MSI 390 MPG Gaming mobo for a 5800X3D and Asus TUF Gaming B550-Pro. My rationale is I can still use my Noctua DH15 HSF, DDR4, and all the rest of my parts. It should be a faster PC in every respect, and if I were to swap my 3090 FE out for a 3090 Ti, I shouldn't...

    Sword and Fairy 7

    I played it a few hours and am enjoying it so far. I haven't yet encountered any serious stuttering. There was some briefly while entering new areas, but so far nothing annoying. Perhaps they have patched things up a little. I'm on a 9900KS / 3090FE / 16GB DDR4 / Windows 11 Pro (21H2/22000.613...

    Sword and Fairy 7

    Game looks gorgeous. There are English subtitles, but some are saying they're a little rough. I will give it a go soon. At $30 it seems well worth it. Really clean visuals. Apparently it's a GPU melter, UE4 Engine/DX12/RT. some spoilers here, be warned:

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    For those unaware, Quake and Quake II RTX have received some nice updates relatively recently and are worth a revisit if you enjoy those games and haven't played them in a while. Also, Duke Nukem 3D is now supported by Raze, a fork of GZDoom, and there is a nice enhanced resource pack for it on...

    Next Tomb Raider

    Makes me glad I never got around to watching the newest film. I really enjoyed the old ones. I honestly don't really care where they take this franchise. They could do so many things with it. I just wish they'd give the original 1-5 games an update or re-release. Just an update providing...

    A Tomb Raider Special Angelina Jolie Edition actually sounds kind of badass. I didn't know I wanted this, but I want it now 🙂

    Next Tomb Raider

    I don't really desire more games like Anniversary, which is more of a remake/reimagining (though maybe a anniversary remake of one of the other classics would be cool). I'd like to see more simplistic remasters of the classics or actually even just updates to the original games giving them...

    When do you uninstall games from your drive?

    I haven't been able to fill my 512gb nvme drive up with games. I seem to naturally rotate between around 5-10 games at a time. If I know I'm done playing one for a long time I usually uninstall it so I can forget about it for a while (and also set myself up for a clean install for the future).

    Next Tomb Raider

    I'm surprised we haven't seen official remasters of the old games. Since Spyro and Crash got the treatment, I think Lara deserves it too. It hurts, ngl. Maybe at some point we will see it.

    Simplest way to PC game on my TV...? Advice / recommendations please...

    I have a 55" lgtv on a strong wooden desk, with my computer just behid it. I run cables underneath the left side of the TV to another 6'x2.5' folding table with my keyboard and mouse and vr headset and other things. This way I can get the distance just right and also keep things simple. The...

    Total Annihilation was great! Damn I still remember borrowing the discs from a friend and it being one of my first RTS experiences. The only thing I can remember from before that is watching a friend play C&C haha.

    Retro video game ad thread.

    Some 90s ads that probably would not fly today :ROFLMAO: How times have chagned. I was around 10 when I first saw the tomb raider ad above in my local blockbuster. And the Maximum Force ad I came across on the PSX reddit some time ago. Hilarious.

    Anyone else fed up with PC gaming?

    Nah, I still love it. On Windows I don't really find anything frustrating in the PC gaming world. I did end up giving up gaming on linux though lol, at least for now. Too much hassle for me. I would never want to hassle with multiple displays. I just use my single display 4K LGTV setup for...

    Games you liked that (almost) everyone hated

    Gore: Ultimate Soldier (4D Rulers / DreamCatcher Interactive, released 2002). I had fun with it on its release. Kind of a neat oldschool shooter. Not so great that I'd try playing it today though.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2: Heart of Chernobyl

    I like the premise of these games, and I enjoyed the Metro games, but everytime I tried to get into any of the original STALKER games I ran into serious bugs and immersion-breaking moments. I'm willing to give the franchise another try though, and I hope this game is solid.

    I've been slowly collecting and enjoying PSX games lately. I picked up a used PS2 at a local trade shop, disassembled it and cleaned it out good, adjusted the optical lens so it read discs reliably, and replaced the loud ass fan in it with a silent noctua fan. I'm using a powered Hyperkin HDMI...

    Doom 3 - 16 Years Later: A Retrospective

    Having played Doom 3 + ROE recently multiple times and having spent a lot of time with it, I must say it's one of the funnest FPS games ever. It's a much improved experience playing it today on a modern system then it was playing it on its release. Dhewm3 source port + redux mod is how I would...

    Nostalgia Moment

    @DarkSideA8 I think we have had a lot of technology pushes recently, such as wider adoption of HDR and raytracing and VR tech. Seeing the evolution from 2D to 3D and then to near photorealism was perhaps more impressive though. And I think you may be right. Much of the industry now does seem...

    Last Epoch

    Has anyone sunk a lot of hours into this game? Does it get more challenging as the campaign progresses? I like the visuals and stuff, but so far I've encountered almost nothing but trash mobs. I'm almost outside of my refund window heh. The game does seem promising so far...I will probably...

    Doom Eternal

    I really enjoyed Eternal + DLC. It's definitely a repetitive game though, even if it is great for what it is. The game is a one-man-slaughter-house broken record lol. I prefer a game with more varied pacing, but if you want nothing but deep, relentless FPS action, this is for you. I found...

    Yes, definitely. I still order physical copies now and then of older games I liked, such as Silent Hill 3 (still not available for digital purchase anywhere). And once in a great while I spot some diamond in the rough in a local store. One memory I have is waiting in line for Doom 3 at my local...
