    Legitimate places to buy PC games.

    Noticed ARK was on sale this morning for like $30. Read through it throughout the day. Seemed like something maybe I could get into. Checked back and its like $85 now; sale ended. GMG doesn't have it. There any other legitimate places to look? 99% of all my purchases are through Steam, so I'm...

    Diablo 4's Release Date...

    Well, you can. But you have to invest in a healthy amount of Orb of Regrets to do it. Leveling does suck. Be nice if you ran the story mode just once, then all characters after that can skip it somehow. I don't know how the hardcore guys do it.

    Question on upgrades - been out of the loop

    Yawp. My 1060 came from here. Fair price. No issue. Been great.

    Question on upgrades - been out of the loop

    Something better is always "coming along soon". The 3000 series cards are supposedly due the end of the year. After that, perhaps score a 2000 series from someone that is upgrading. That's my plan. The For Sale section here is great. I've bought a few things without issue. Can't go wrong with...

    Question on upgrades - been out of the loop

    I upgraded about six months ago. Switched to Team Red. I'm rocking a 3600 and a 1060. Solid setup. It was a great deal then, and I'm sure its an even better deal now.

    POE TradeCompanion POE ItemInfo POE Overlay Path of Building I mean, can you play without them? Sure. I can see skipping the trade programs if you stick with SSF. Path of Building is necessary if you really want to get anywhere in the game. Compare passive skills, weapons, and gear. To see how...

    Diablo 4's Release Date...

    The complexity. I'm deep into it. I've been playing for several years now and I get about 40% of the game. The need for third party programs, the Atlas is a freaking annoyance, and the trading sucks. If I were just starting to play now, I wouldn't last a day with how deep it is. Too much going on.

    games that were on your school computers

    Oregon Trail, obviously. I'd buy 999 boxes of ammo and hunt the entire time. Then some mining cart game. You had to setup a series of ropes and pulleys to load the full mining cart out of the mine.

    Who's making moves to get ready for the new release of cards?

    I'll see what comes up for sale here. Rocking a 1060 right now. Its been fine, but if the right deal comes up I'll see about a 2080.

    First Half of 2020 pretty bleak for PC gaming

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    Wife and kiddo were gone for the day yesterday, so fired of Call of Duty for a bit for the first time in a month or so. This game can not be good for your health. Do the rest of you get all amped up while playing? There is no way I can just sit back and play casually. 90% of the gaming is Path...

    Do you feel gamers have become "soft?"

    I beat Battletoads when I was like seven. Yes. :D

    Path of Exile

    Shit. There's a queue? My wife is home. I'll have her fire the game up, haha. She booted the game earlier, but there was no download. Perhaps I'm already updated? Should I just have her log me in for when I get home?

    Path of Exile

    Same. I'd join an [H] guild. I just don't have the slightest idea about any of it. Same with Discord. No idea.

    Path of Exile

    I've never done party play ever in PoE, so I think I'm going to try to scope out a guild. Iunno, I sort of miss the days of logging in with a few others and knocking some stuff out together. Love playing support roles. Something like a tanking, taunting, Gladiator seems fun.

    Path of Exile

    Looks like new league around the corner. Debating if I want to give it a go. Do my usual "this build may work", fail at T5 maps, follow a build, get bored, and quit three weeks in. :D

    World of Warcraft Classic

    So what's the status here? I fade in and out of the game now and then. Play for a couple months, leave, come back, etc. Haven't tried classic. Don't have the time to commit to a full raid schedule so I'd probably just rock retail. Kind of liked having a game that didn't involve 100% attention...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    I run 1200DPI. Some players are running like 180 and I have no idea how. I rest my wrist on the desk and pivot from there.

    New Gaming Build!

    Closer to $3200 apparently because he got the CPU for $700.

    New Gaming Build!

    RAM and PSU seem...a bit excessive. Perhaps pull funds from there for a 2000series GPU? Someone smarter than I could comment.

    Meanwhile I'm over here waiting for 3xxx series to drop to get a 2xxx series for cheap to replace my 1060. :D

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    Played a few more rounds of Warzone. Watched some videos. The whole "pinwheel" strategy is great. I got so bored of crawling around everywhere and waiting for people to walk by. Played a few rounds last night, and one game I came in like 115th, but the others I was 20s and 30s. My best was 13th.

    Just as long as the screen bleeps and bloops each time I hit a button or load a program.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    That's the thing. I don't know anyone. I really can't do team games right now with the kiddo sleeping. Hell, playing a game without a pause is a trick. There are times when i just have to get up and leave. So these are all solo mode. I really prefer the offensive, run and gun style modes. Gun...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    We're going to call that a night. Kind of boring. Running and gunning just doesn't work. Spent like 25m with an LMG waiting for people to run by.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    I think I was 24th? This says 100th? iunno. Lot of waiting around huh? Just camp out until someone runs by? ah, I spectated until the end. 21st. meh. I have an issue where I hate calling it a night on a loss. I'll never win this, so I'll play a few rounds and then regular COD until SBMM...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    I've only done two rounds of the Warzone, but that's something more designed to log in with friends correct? My squad or whatever just split right at the start. Not really a solo game huh?
