    Video Card under $200

    Well, since Bioshock Infinite is going to be one of those rare games that breaks my "Never Pay Full Price for Video Games" rule AND I have played all theTomb Raiders by Crystal Dynamics, I'm going to roll with that 7870. (I was out of work a long time, f*ck it I'll treat myself.) Any...

    Video Card under $200

    I am a long-time [H] member but it has been a while since I have been around, mostly due to the fact that I was out of work for so long that PC parts was the furthest thing from my mind. Now that things are on the right track I am looking for GPU recommendations in the $150-$200 range. The use...

    Mass Effect 3 will require Origin only!

    I would be more willing to buy a Steam copy of a EA game under the stipulation that I will not be eligible to ever add DLC to it rather than buy from Origin and be eligible for DLC. I would have to repurchase the game on Origin to be able to get DLC. Because I honestly don't care about DLC. The...

    Mass Effect 3 will require Origin only!

    It's like watching a small fish trying to swim against a strong tries so hard but can't move forward and ultimately fails. Steam is a gorilla and publishers only hurt themselves by not using it.

    High pitched noise coming from inside PC

    Today I am over at a friend's place trying to help him solve a PC issue. His specs are listed below post. For as long as he can recall, the PC makes a high pitched sound, almost like a whistle or high pitched sqeal, constantly and it gets even louder when the PC hibernates. My first guess was...

    Applying what you learn from video games to fitness

    This is true for myself. I have a very obsessive personality. At points in my life that obsession has been video games (not just MMO's) and at other points it has been fitness. For most of my early 20's I was very fitness focused. Then I got a full time job and after working all day you just...

    Overlooked RPGs

    Overlooked RPGs

    I just got into playing the F2P MMO Vindictus. Combat is a lot of fun. It really reminds me of Guild Wars. It's really easy to just hop in, run a dungeon or two, and hop out.

    Problems with The Witcher 2 updates

    I have also read somewhere that you can not have any mods installed during the patching process, so I always remove mine before I patch.

    Resident Evil 5, is it a fun game? Did you enjoy it?

    BAM! [Thread defibrillator applied] Didn't want to make a new thread for this so this is the most recent one that seemed appropriate...but I just reinstalled RE5 and would like to play some campaign or mercs so if anyone is interested let me know! Steam ID is in sig, or you can just reply here.

    Silverfall & Silverfall: Earth Awakening

    I just came across this game while searching for a fun action RPG game to play that I may have overlooked when it was released. I've played all the "big guns" of this genre, the Diablos, TQs, Sacreds, Torchlight, and Dungeon Siege I and II. Anyone play this game and if so, what did you think...

    Confirmed: BF3 Squad system will not get any better

    I'm sure after it releases it many things in the game will be improved upon. I certainly do not plan on buying this Day 1, and I never have. I plan on waiting a couple months, letting the game be patched and hopefully finding a nice sale price. I plan on playing this game for a looooooong...

    "It's Beta"

    I remember playing FFXIV beta (and CE early start) and living and breathing the mantra "It's beta" in order to convince myself there is no way a game could release in such a poor state....spoiler alert: one year later it's still beta.

    Anybody else excited about MW3's release?

    I am not a CoD or MW player, but I have to admit I am excited for its release. I am just really anxious to see how it is received...particularly the new "Elite" service. This could be a huge moment in gaming if something like this actually takes off...maybe for the best...maybe

    Rage commercial on MNF

    Let's be honest...the game is probably going to rock our balls off...and we PC gamers know we will be playing it the right way on the PC, so let the console crowd have their commercial blurbs. :p Edit: I just hope my PC is up to the challenge! (see sig)
