    Warhammer: Dawn of War III

    Bummer...just put in a request for a refund. I was really looking forward to this game but I just wasn't feeling it after two hours. I feel DoW2 looks and plays better than DoW3 despite being more than 8 years old. I guess I'll finally try to learn how to play Total War: Warhammer to get my...

    New case - Fractal Design R5 VS Define C

    I recently transferred from an R4 to the C and the components in my signature all fit nicely. I didn't need all the 5.25" bays or extra HDD space since I'm only running two SSDs. The C can fit the massive Noctua NH-D15 cooler but I did have to give up the second fan for it to fit. The C also...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I'm with you. I hope they come out with a "low skill-ceiling" ship that can be flown solo (I'm hoping the new Cutlass is it). As much fun as it is to think about going full-immersion mode with VR and HOTAS, I'd probably rather just kick back with an Xbox controller while flying around the...

    DAC + Small Desktop Speaker Combo Questions

    I'm considering the same options as you, OP. For some reason, my Sound Blaster Z started conflicting with my Samsung 950 Pro M2 drive. The only way to get my system to recognize the Samsung drive was to remove the SBZ from my system altogether and now I'm stuck using on-board Realtek audio...

    What 1080 Ti AIB card are you getting and why?

    My current cooling solution in the Define C is: Front: 2x 140mm Noctua NF-A14 PWM Back: 1x 120mm Noctua NF-P12 CPU: Noctua NH-D15 with one fan (the second one doesn't fit in the Define C) AFAIK, the Define C doesn't have a bottom fan mount. I didn't install any fans on the top since I wanted...

    What 1080 Ti AIB card are you getting and why?

    Thanks for your feedback. Looks like it might be a problem with my case airflow unless I got unlucky and they didn't seat the cooler properly on my card. I'm scared to open it up and look though.

    What 1080 Ti AIB card are you getting and why?

    Hrrrm, you are right my temps are higher than what a lot of review sites are reporting. They seem to be getting 71C-73C under full load and I was hitting 82C-84C when running Time Spy / Fire Strike. Not sure if it's relevant but I also swapped out my case yesterday from the Fractal R4 to...

    What 1080 Ti AIB card are you getting and why?

    My AORUS 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition arrived today and I have to say I'm very impressed. I've always bought EVGA cards in the past but the AORUS is one sexy beast - the cooler is a piece of art. I've already cancelled my EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 since that doesn't ship until May and I think I'll be very...

    Player unknown Battlegrounds

    The game runs on the Unreal 4 Engine which does not currently support SLI and there was a post from a dev stating that they had no intention of offering SLI support in the future either. They did mention that it might be possible to find a way to enable SLI support on the Unreal 4 engine but...

    What's been the most relaxing game you've played of late?

    To The Moon is a beautiful game but not everyone wants to go on a feels-trip when trying to relax :D The new Hitman has been my go-to relaxation game. No time limit and multiple paths to victory allow me to just mess around in the world at my own pace and come up with new and creative ways to...

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands

    This game might've been promising if the AI wasn't so brainless and is the complete opposite of the omniscient aimbots in the ARMA 3 campaign. The abysmal AI basically eliminates any tension or excitement from combat and I feel like I'm playing Dynasty Warriors mowing down hundreds of minions...

    Man, what happened to this game? I remember having fun in beta but I haven't played since first week of release (still rank 30ish). I reinstalled the game and decided to play 10 placement matches for fun and it's the same exact team composition every single match. If I try to play my favorite...

    Old timers : Do you REALLY enjoy the games today like past games?

    Objectively speaking, there are probably as many good games in the past decade or two compared to when we were kids but a combination of nostalgia and more responsibilities skews most of our perceptions. If I didn't have to work and still had spring, winter, and summer breaks; I'm sure I'd find...

    WoW; 6h expansion Legion

    Dammit the nostalgia won again and I ended up buying Legion. Here's to hoping I don't get bored again after a month like with the previous expansions.

    Street Fighter V (Exclusive to PS4 and PC!)

    Anyone get their fightstick to work properly on Windows 10? My original MadCatz TE stick (the one that came out with SF4) was working fine with x360ce on Windows 8. However, since I've upgraded to Windows 10 I can't get it working. Any ideas?

    Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K IPC & Overclocking Review @ [H]

    Is there a consensus yet on a safe voltage for 24/7 use? Some people say 1.3v, 1.35v, and 1.4v so it's kind of all over the place. My new build has been running rock solid at 4.6ghz with 1.28v in adaptive mode with temperatures maxing out at 60*C for two weeks now without a hitch. I'm...

    Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord

    Game looks really rough around the edges but with some polish it could be fantastic. I think this is the only game I've seen so far that I'm genuinely excited for.

    Death Stranding (first title from Kojima Productions)

    Typical Kojima...I have no idea wtf I just watched :D. Honestly, I'm not even sure the trailer has anything to do with the upcoming game other than the name and Norman Reedus as the main character. I feel like this trailer is just Kojima taking a stab at Konami and showing off his new game...

    BATTLEFIELD 1

    Meh, graphics looked nice but the gameplay didn't excite me at all. I feel like I'll get bored of this version in about two weeks like I did with BF4. The most hype thing about the press conference was the cameraman zooming in on Snoop clearly smoking a blunt during the multiplayer event.

    Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K IPC & Overclocking Review @ [H]

    Let me know if you figure it out! Would be nice not to have the vcore running at max 24/7.

    Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K IPC & Overclocking Review @ [H]

    I haven't tried it yet since there seems to be a lot of people having trouble with adaptive mode and Asus boards although those threads were from late 2015. Maybe Asus fixed them by now so I'll have to try it out. Hopefully I don't blow anything up.

    Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K IPC & Overclocking Review @ [H]

    Nice man! Got mine up and running yesterday. Looks like we had the same idea :D. If it's not too much trouble, please let me know what BIOS settings you used once you get it overclocked. I've got mine running stable @ 4.6ghz so far but I'm an overclocking noob so I don't know if my values...

    what your buying, Intel i7 6950X , i7 6900K , i7 6850K or i7 6800K?

    I never knew they had QVL's for motherboards...derp...learn something new every day :D. I'm actually thinking of returning the Broadwell-E build and going with Skylake as well. Just got caught up in the hype but if I'm being realistic, I don't do anything that would require more than 4 cores...

    what your buying, Intel i7 6950X , i7 6900K , i7 6850K or i7 6800K?

    What motherboard/ram are you guys planning to use with these? I picked up an 6800k today and I haven't upgraded in forever so I have no idea what's what. I'm thinking of getting the Asus ROG Strix X99 Gaming but I have no idea what ram I should get to go with it.

    They need to adjust the damage falloff for D. VA a bit cause she does absolutely zero damage from outside of melee range. Also, the fact that you can blow up her mech before she can even get to use it after summoning a new one is kinda silly. D.VA's damage outside of mech suit is 10x scarier...

    Fallout 4

    Oi, maybe there's some video setting I forgot to turn off or enable that's causing the problem. I'm getting dizzy just walking around the house in the beginning of the game before the nukes drop.

    Fallout 4

    Did they add head bobbing to the game or something? I played through the game just fine when it first came out and reinstalled for the new DLC but I get so dizzy playing now. I can't play for more than a minute without getting a massive headache.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Coming to Steam this Friday (May 12)

    If they don't completely botch the port then this is actually pretty awesome news. I've been wanting to play the Remaster for a while now but don't have a PS4. Guess I know what I'm doing this weekend!

    BATTLEFIELD 1

    Other than some pretty graphics, that trailer revealed next to nothing about gameplay. Guess I'll have to wait and see some actual gameplay footage before making any decision.

    Battlefield 5

    Ehh, these pictures worry me. I sure hope the reason they're doing a weird alternate history WW1 isn't so they can justify selling Battle Packs by making every weapon have a billion attachments/colors.

    For a small 6v6 game like this, I love that we don't have to deal with the hassle of a server browser. Much nicer to be able to just click and play and have the server auto-repopulate if anyone leaves. There are definitely some balance issues that need to be addressed as some heroes are just...

    Warhammer: Dawn of War III

    Yea...wish the units looked a little more gritty but maybe it's just a placeholder. Those screenshots are what I envision my units would look like if I tried to paint the tabletop figures with my amateur painting skills :D

    Warhammer: Dawn of War III

    Hype! Loved DoW2's campaign. I'm probably in the minority but I'm kinda bummed they decided to bring back base building.

    Loving Junkrat and Pharah so far. I never liked sticky bombs in TF2 so Junkrat's abilities are perfect for my playstyle and flying around as Pharah is tons of fun.
