    Review the game you finished recently.

    That was true. I eventually started to figure out how to increase my damage more effectively, I would kill dragons in a few hits. Also once you get a certain shout, dragons were easier to fight. But I didn't learn this until I was well into the game lol.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition with Anniversary Upgrade This game. What an experience. Not sure what to say except my first playthrough was 225 hours long. I had fun playing this game. So much content. I just loved wondering around finding new locations to explore. Finding new...

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    Foreground FPS is the FPS while playing. Background is like when you are alt tabbed. Can set a lower background FPS so the game still isn't maxing your GPU out when it doesn't need to.

    Games with the best audio/sound design?

    Subnautica - Leviathans screech. nuff said Alien:Isolation - Alien stomping noise intensifies. Hellblade:Senua's Sacrifice The whispers sound like they are in your head. Mass Effect. Reaper sound effects - nuff said Half Life/Portal games. Great use of ambience sounds.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2

    Was the word sunsetting used this way before Bungie did it to Destiny 2? Or did Bungie start some trend of using that word to basically mean F over customers.

    The Division 2

    I found The Division 1 to be a more enjoyable game. Enjoyed the setting of The Division 2 but some of the changes just didn't really work for me.

    The Division 2

    Its a live service game. No mods. Bullet sponge is kinda what the game is. Getting better gear will help some.

    Destiny 2

    Finished up the campaign. Probably the worst one they have done, imo. Just didn't have any fun and only got through it in some effort for some payoff. Zero impact felt Nothing ever explained. We have this new villain who is 'bad', don't know why but trust us hes bad. Ya ok. Visually The...

    Few missions into campaign. Not really into this one like with Witch Queen. Intro cutscene was fun, but after that not having fun. Going to keep pressing on to see how it plays out but ya, not liking the new content. Some of the game design changes are nice with the mods. Also like the new...

    BioShock 2 Remastered Great game set in the Bioshock series. Mostly the same gameplay as one with some changes. Great environments and atmosphere, story is decent. Doesn't have the same charismatic characters of the first game but are still well voiced. The Minerva's Den DLC is also a...

    Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League (Rocksteady)

    Meh, might be fun for a bit but theres already so many of these types of games, this just adds the DC characters. With the success of Hogwarts, its sad that Warner had to turn this game into a GaaS.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition Wow what an experience. This has easily become one my favorite and most enjoyed single player experiences. The story, writing, characters arcs, and the world are all fantastic. Combat was greatly improved past previous games and was fun and...

    What games do you think were graphically well-ahead of their time?

    I thought the first Serious Sam games were impressive when I first played them. Large levels. Lots of enemies on screen. Impressive at the time effects, imo.

    The Day Before

    Traffic light logic fail at 4:17 to 4:21~. One direction goes green, camera turns left, other light is green, doubt it had time to turn red in the time it took for the camera to turn . Maybe an oversight but still, attention to details is important.

    Watched a few minutes of gameplay to see what its about. Looks like a game some first time developer forgot to release back in like 2007, found the files on some cd, decided to release it in 2023 with a bloat file size usage. A multimillion dollar studio signed off on this and put a AAAA...

    WoW: 9th expansion; Dragonflight

    Was probably the explosives affix. During a fight, orbs will spawn with a timer, if the timer pops off it does like 40% damage to the group. To prevent, just tag them with any damage, they have 1 hp or LoS.

    Ubisoft cancels three more games, issues dire update

    Anno 1800 is the Ubisoft game I enjoy the most of recently and will buy basically any DLC for it because it just adds more layers to the gameplay. I'm 200+ hours into my save and still have things to do and I love to optimize my production systems. I think Anno is one of their more popular...

    There is a portal you need to go in that zone with the time travelers will get you to Azmerloth. If you are in a zone that looks like Northrend, you are in the right zone, find the quest giver near all of the friendly NPCs

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    Cautiously skeptical for this one. For me things it need to do better than D3 are, have a better skill system, better itemization, chill with the 11 zillion damage numbers, have a decent campaign, and fun endgame.

    Why am I getting bad FPS in Valheim with this build? RTX 3090 + threadripper 3970x

    Also, fans seems to be set to 66% as auto it's grayed out. Set it to auto. No reason to keep fans going at idle and it will ramp them up based on temps of the GPU.

    Are we sort of in a drought or something? (bit of rambling here)

    Tower defense? Have you tried X-morph? There is a demo on steam to try. Its tower defense but your builder also is combat capable. Good tower variety and over the top campaign/story.
