Ive played and finished them all since the ps2 versions and I absolutely love those games but that said, I couldn’t tell you much about the story. They’re so tricky and complicated when it comes to story, I’ve forgotten most of them.Just beat the first Metal Gear Solid for the first time(assumedly last time). I really liked it. The story is incredibly convoluted, but it's done well enough and evrey boss fight feels very different. Thinking I'll start 2 soon.
If you do that: check out Steam Link.Gonna have to go to Best Buy after work and do some negotiating. The computer I ordered went on sale today for almost $500 off the new price meaning I can get a new one for cheaper than I bought the open box one. It would save me $50 to return the open box and buy a new one. That said, the open box ones are now almost $400 cheaper as well so I'm going to see if they'll price match the open box. This is big for me because I want to replace the tv at my store with a new Samsung QLED but I won't buy a tv until I pay off my credit card for the computer.
pretty much, but for Steam and it’s games With built in controller support for the steam and Xbox controllers.Thanks for the info.
I assume that’s using a tv as a monitor wirelessly? I know my MacBook Pro can do it.
Cool, will check it out.pretty much, but for Steam and it’s games With built in controller support for the steam and Xbox controllers.
they used to make a hardware version of it (that I love and still use) but discontinued. The hardware Steam Link can only do up to 1080p. The app can go up to 4K on any 2017 or newer Samsung SmartTV that supports it.
I used to game on PCs before I got into consoles. A Medal of Honor game was the last game I ever played on a PC. I don't remember the title but it was the Medal of Honor game that begins with you storming Normandy Beach.
I bought a new PC this year (well, chose its specs myself) and prior to that I had my PC for eight years. Only had two small upgrades, which was getting 8GB extra ram, so that PC had 16, and upgrading the gfx card from a GTX670 to a 970, which wasn't a top three card at the time.I used to game on PCs before I got into consoles.

There was this shooter called F.E.A.R. that I tried playing on PC around that time and my video card wasn't good enough so the game would get to a certain point, freeze and not work anymore. I got tired of the constant need to upgrade the hardware. This was a good 15 years or so ago I believe.
That's a common misconception with people about iPhone users. Apple releases a phone every year at the same time, not every six months. What's more funny, is it's usually people that use Samsung products that make those comments when it's Samsung that releases several phones per year and usually have something coming out every 3-4 months. Their constant phone launches depreciate the resale value of their phones like a motherfucker.I'm not sure why you think you need to constantly upgrade PC hardware. I mean, sure you can if you want to stay at the head of the pack with the most powerful gear, but it's like those cunts that buy the new iPhone every six months. There is no need to do so.

That's a fair enough point, if you buy a low end PC then you will get out dated incredibly fast. I suppose I have only owned two of my own PC's and both times I saved up until I knew it would be future proof, though my previous one only initially cost me $2100 and with the two upgrades, a total of $3000. Not bad and got 8 years of consistent use and was able to run modern games like Doom Eternal with no issues.In terms of upgrading that often, like I said, I haven't been a PC gamer in 15 years. When I was, it seemed like I was constantly having to do something but maybe it had something to do with the fact that at the time, I likely couldn't afford high end gear to begin with so I had to piece meal shit together to stay on the cutting edge. I had my time gaming on PC but like someone else said, there aren't many PC exclusives anymore and I prefer gaming from my couch than sitting at a desk and I have a 75" TV at home. There's no way I'd rather game on a monitor than that, except for the instances I mentioned where sometimes, I just want to lay out in bed and relax.
With graphics cards, the best time to buy is when they release newer models. Typically because the previous cards go down in price but will still be useful for years to come.PC buying/building is very much about future-proofing. If you're upgrading a rig every couple of months then you're either very frugal or something is off in your setup.
I expect my current laptop to last for 5 years. That's how I calculated the value of the cost proposition. My prior PCs (desktops) have all lasted 5 years.
When you creep into the enthusiast segment you're potentially chasing iterative graphics card or processor architecture. The new Nvidia cards and AMD choosers for example. It's best to let the dust settle on those things than to be an early adopter imo.
For gaming, nothing is really pushing the hardware specs. Gamers are by demanding higher and higher refresh rates, but 60hz is all you really need. So 4k/60hz is very attainable and sustainable for a 3 year plus PC build. However if you want a 6k/120hz rig or something else nutty you'll be chasing iterative upgrades ad nauseum.
My laptop's screen is 240hz, 1080p though. That's part of the trade-off, I went with stronger internal components such as 32 gb of RAM, dual 1TB SSDs, and a 2070 super. But for a 17inch screen I don't know that I can notice the difference at this point though I think I have a dying pixel.With graphics cards, the best time to buy is when they release newer models.

Some people are really weird and need to be on the cutting edge all the time, but for regular joes, there is no need.
I did just buy a 240hz monitor this morning. lol
I never went back to do the DLC but I think I put around 65 hours into the game. I maybe enjoyed 20 hours. I liked some of the combat and I like a couple of side quests but so much fucking filler. The world is fantastic but all this shit you do just doesn't hold because the depth of the combat isn't there, nor is the enemy diversity. The mythological stuff was the best stuff in the game, I might go back to do the Atlantis DLC if it learns into that stuff.I just passed 80+ hours in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. I never thought I would put that much time into a single game. I'll easily have 100 hours in it by the time it's done. I remember thinking Black Flag was a big deal when I put 50 hours into it. I'm still only 60 percent done with the story. I've been running around doing add on stuff.
It's weird for me because I always get the complete edition of any game I buy but rarely do I do all of the DLC. By the time I'm usually done with an AC game especially, I'm so fucking burned out on it, I just want to get away from it.I never went back to do the DLC but I think I put around 65 hours into the game.
I play it every day for at least a few hours while it's slow at work. I'm hooked on the game, which is weird seeing my self type that because I wouldn't necessarily say I'm enjoying the game. Ill go to Day's Gone. I absolutely loved every minute of Day's Gone and was bummed when I was finished. I don't have that same feeling here. There's plenty I like but there is so much I wish was different.I maybe enjoyed 20 hours.
The combat needs to be changed or tweaked at the very least. They need to give you more ability slots as well. You get 4 ability slots so you're doing the same moves over and over again in conjunction with heavy and light strikes. It's repetitive as shit. If you add in the fact that they've basically delegated assassinations and stealth out of the game, I just wish there was so much that is different about it.I liked some of the combat and I like a couple of side quests but so much fucking filler.

Performance, always.Can't wait for CyberPunk in 2 weeks. Still haven't decided on PS4 or PC. It comes down to performance versus screen size. Decisions, decisions.
I pretty much feel the same. I'm not a fan of 1st person RPGs. I thought I was, I enjoyed Fallout 3 when it was new but I did not enjoy Fallout 4 and you couldn't pay me to revisit Fallout or Skyrim. Cyberpunk seems like it will have some hardcore science fiction and that appeals to me more than the actual game. It'll have shooting mechanics so that may make it palpable for me. 1st person melee combat is the worst, just doesn't translate.I wanted to play Cyberpunk until I found out it’s a first person game. Shame. Looks good too.
I wasn't super happy when I found out CyberPunk was first person. I am still on thre fence about it but I am still getting the game. It looks really fun and like @Ninjastix said, the stories/quests should be awesome.I bought Far Cry 5 because it looks outstanding but got 5 minutes in and knew I wouldn’t be able to deal with the first person aspect. First person has no place in sandbox games. Save that shit for mindless run and gunners.
I completely understand why a lot of shooters are first person and I get the appeal to some gamers. Open world/sandbox games are meant to be played from a third person perspective. I think games like COD would be better in third person. My favorite shooters are games like Ghost Recon that are played in third person. I just like it better. First person is an automatic disqualifier for me. Hell, they even ruined Resident Evil for me.
