    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Around 6 hours in and playing on hard mode. So far not seeing the painted surfaces makes everything more immersive. Some of these jungle environments are excellent, I haven't felt this way about a jungle since the original Crysis. Graphics look great overall, can't wait to play some more of...

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I preordered the standard edition last week, can't wait to start playing, hopefully on Thursday night. Reviews seem mixed but good overall. Probably a solid 8/10 at the very least.

    Good single Player FPS wanted

    The new Doom is one of the best single player fps's released in the past few years. It's not a horror game, it's a pure action fps.

    The Evil Within 2

    I'd guess half of my kills were stealth kills. So I'd say it's a viable way of completing the game, on higher difficulties it's probably the best way. There's a whole skill tree devoted to stealth and a new arrow type that acts as a smoke bomb. The more open environments means you can avoid a...

    The Evil Within 2

    I also finished the first game on the hardest (not Akuma) initial difficulty. I really enjoyed the first game as well, the main difference is that the first game is a much more linear experience. With the exception of a couple of chapters you are constantly moving forward and experiencing new...

    The Evil Within 2

    I just beat the Evil Within 2 on nightmare difficulty, it took me around 21 hrs. Overall I really enjoyed it, the first third is good, the middle third loses some momentum as the environment doesn't change much and your mostly doing the same things as the first third, but the final third is...

    The Evil Within 2

    From what I've been reading experienced players should play on Nightmare difficulty, it's about on par with normal on the first one. Those looking for a casual experience can choose normal. Gamespot 8/10

    The Evil Within 2

    I have Evil Within 2 preloaded and ready to go, less than 24 hrs from release. I'm in the mood for some nice survival horror action on Fri the 13th. Early buzz from several sites seem to be positive. I'm hoping it reviews well, Bethesda seems to have forgotten about this title and are mostly...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Just picked up the ASrock Z370 Extreme4, $155 after $10 mail in rebate. Seems to have the same OC ability as most of the other boards in the ASrock line but I don't pay for any of the extras that I don't need.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    I'll probably go for the Asrock Extreme 4, will be cheaper than the K6 and I don't see any real differences between the two.

    Sequel Middle Earth: Shadow of War Confirmed

    Here's a 1440p video showing some gameplay I don't understand why so many companies put out their gameplay trailers at what looks like 720p Youtube quality.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Freesync 144hz 27" or more recommendation?

    I don't follow free sync monitors much but I heard some good things about the Nixeus EDG 27. Should be available in Europe some time this year. Might be worth a look if your ok with risking a lesser known company.

    Oculus Rift VR and Touch $400 Newegg

    I picked up the bundle, couldn't resist at this price. Elite Dangerous is looking like one of the best VR experiences around if your into that sort of thing, Now I just need to upgrade my graphics card.

    Oculus Rift VR and Touch $400 Newegg

    According to Oculus, they won't have a revision until 2019. https://www.roadtovr.com/oculus-rift-cv1-superseded-new-version-least-two-years-rift-2-cv2/ This feels more like Oculus is trying to gain market share on Vive.

    Steam summer sale countdown 2017

    Possible Rogue One spoiler if you haven't watched the movie. I still look forward to the big Steam sales but without daily and flash deals I really haven't bought much the past couple of years.

    The Evil Within 2

    I was a big fan of the first one, hoping the 2nd is just as good or better. October should be a great month for gaming, there can never be enough quality survival horror games.

    Prey (2017)

    IGN Score: 4 Gamespot Score: 6 These are pretty low for what I consider an 8-9 game. I'm about 20 hrs in and still having fun exploring Talos and optimizing my character's build. The story has been slow after the explosive intro but it's starting to get interesting again towards the end. I...

    Prey (2017)

    I'm loving this game so far. There are some minor quibbles, like having to manually edit the cfg file to adjust the FOV, not having the medkit be able to be hotkeyed, not being able to click on some buttons on the menu etc... Overall though it feels a lot like a modern Bioshock, never played...

    Prey (2017)

    Forgot that Bethesda doesn't allow early reviews anymore, was actually trying to check for the embargo date lol. Doesn't matter, I' already have it pre-ordered for a good price. I can't imagine them messing this up bad enough to want a refund.

    Mass Effect: Andromeda

    Is it just my imagination or are the faces better after the the Origin update and Nvidia day 1 driver? I played a few hours and was actually fine with the faces, maybe a placebo effect or lowered standards. So far I'm on Eos and having fun with the game. I hate the way the character controls...
