Re: Looking for a new game to play

Play Freespace 2! Only costs a few dollars, comes with tons of content, there's no micromanagement (since it's level-based), and again because it's level-based each of which only takes ~15 minutes to complete (assuming you don't fail :D ), you can easily play a few hours a week no problem.

Freespace 2

This old game won lots of accolades, and since then its fans have gone on to make many custom campaigns for it. The game itself costs a few dollars, but beyond that all the extra content is free. FS Open (the program used to get these mods) used to be hard to install, but with Knossos , it's gotten ...

Re: The Witcher series

Lol wimfrits. Binge watching has happened a bit too often for me that starting to watch a TV series takes an active decision, because once I start it'll be hard to stop. This time I played W3, I didn't kill Keira, recruited Letho and Roche. Just the emperor and Djkstra were SoBs and didn't come to h...

Re: The Witcher series

Took me a hundred hours but I eventually finished The Witcher 3. Great game, very intriguing with loads of memorable characters. The day I finished it I actually had some trouble sleeping that night because I was thinking about the fates of some of the people. Many of the quests & dialogue were ...

Re: Looking for a new game to play

Thanks, I will take a look at Anthem when it's released.

Payday 2 is a FPS! Those unfortunately make me dizzy, and besides I'm terrible at them, so I'll have to pass :D

Looking for a new game to play

- must be multiplayer, at least cooperative with 3 players (since I want to play with 2 others). More players is even better (since I have more friends). - can't be very ping dependent, since we're all in different countries. - if a MOBA, not one of League of Legends, DotA 2, Heroes of Newerth, and ...

Re: Buying a new laptop

15.6" is good enough for me (in fact I'd probably prefer this screen size since then I can guarantee I put it into my backpack). But! I've miscalculated substantially. I didn't know that those prices quoted are actually before shipping & various taxes, and with those factored in, the prices...

Re: Buying a new laptop

Lol yeah, I'm no hardware expert but I've read that the high end GPU market is Nvidia's stomping ground, which is why it's getting away with the high prices on the 20xx line. I really don't think I can afford to wait much longer though, lest this computer fail on me. On the other hand, because I pro...

Re: Buying a new laptop

My God, why are laptops with the new graphics cards so expensive?! Like, yeah the graphics cards themselves went up in price by a hundred dollars or so, but how can the price go up by ~50%?!

Re: Buying a new laptop

Quick update, new graphics cards are finally released and the reviews for the 2060 are really good. I'm greatly anticipating the 2060 laptops when they're finally released and will almost certainly buy one then!

Re: Buying a new laptop

Thanks Pol. My heart was telling me do it but my head kept telling me the time was so bad I really shouldn't buy a computer unless I absolutely needed to, so I brought this computer to repair. It seems it's not in as bad a condition as I thought. After a system restore, the only thing I've "los...

Re: Buying a new laptop

Well call my dumb because it's almost the end of the year and the new graphics cards still aren't available (they've apparently been released for desktops, but not laptops). Besides from the reviews these graphics cards not even that good, being mostly for a technology that isn't available yet. It's...

Re: Buying a new laptop

Update on what I wound up doing: nothing (unfortunately). After a bit more searching, I decided to wait for the next generation of NVidia graphics cards before making a purchase. They're apparently expected early 2018, and some new Volta cards are already available after all. Of course it's already ...

Re: Buying a new laptop

Lol nice! Excellent reason to be concerned! Turns out I can't buy the ASUS laptop from where I am in the world, so that's out. The Acer Predator's still an option however and the reviews I've seen are positive. They don't say it's extremely good, but they do say it's extremely good for that price po...

Re: Buying a new laptop

Spent some time searching and it seems I can find the cheapest prices on Amazon (surprise surprise). It also seems like I should aim for at least a GT1060, preferably GT1070. As a result I'm narrowing my choices to two: https://www.amazon.com/Gaming-GL502VS-DB71-Windows-Certified-Refurbished/dp/B072...
