I downloaded Dishonored 2 demo recently. The game itself, is very atmospheric, good audio and music. very high attention to detail. interesting characters. story is decent. plenty to read. texture quality is outstanding. animations are quite good. combat is fun. But then ..... magic (see through walls, teleportation, etc). okay, they give me the option to not use magic for which I am grateful. But then ..... they want me to collect runes. I don't want to collect...
If you are looking for cheap core i5 7300HQ + GTX 1050, then the cheapest one I know is the HP Pavilion 15t (which is currently on sale). http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-power-pavilion-laptop--15t-x7p44av-1 IF you sign up for the HP friends/family discount (google it), then you can get the base price down to $607.50 + tax. I just received mine last week. It's not easy to upgrade ram/ssd (I made a youtube video if you are interested to see). You might want to buy it...
In the past 15 years, I have lived from apartment to apartment. In that time, I rented approximately 10 apartments for various durations, and almost all of that time, I used desktop PC's. Well, that's all coming to and end now. I'm going light weight and mobile now, thanks to KabyLake and Pascal. Just ordered a HP Pavilion 15t with core i5 7300HQ and GTX 1050 2GB, for my work and gaming needs. On sale, with discount, for $650 (including tax). It lacks VRAM heatsinks...
Sorry, I did not read the scientific papers. Would radiation pressure explain how this engine works? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_pressure
When Thief 1/2 first launched, I remember the reviews described it as "the game you play with your ears". Audio effects are quite good in Thief 1/2, despite their age. The background (atmospheric) audio is far better than most games, in my opinion. The "newdark" patch supports EAX and openAL. newdark is automatically installed if you install Thief 2 (from disk or disk image) using "Tafferpatcher". This may sound crazy, but I found that playing in 720p looks overall...
Thief 2 (2000) with HD texture mod and object enhancement pack Fan mission: Rose Cottage Screenshots are not deceptive. It is as scary as it looks.
I uninstalled Star Trek online a few months ago, after playing it for 3 years. Too many powers on my taskbar, too much "space magic". ground combat is awful, and in space battles, I stare at the taskbar and watch cooldowns. I know Star Trek is fictional, but I prefer more reality than fiction. If Star Citizen is buy-to-play when it goes beta, then I'm definitely buying it, and these days, I rarely buy games. When does Star Citizen go into beta?
Unlocked core i3 is ... interesting ... but $177 is too much. I paid $75 for my Pentium G3258 (not locked) and $120 for my old first generation Clarkdale core i3 (not locked). I would pay no more than $130 for a new unlocked core i3.
First, try overclocking the memory controller. Then, do some testing.Next, underclock the ram and/or increase ram timings. Then, do more testing.If performance decreases significantly (after underclocking ram), it means there could be a benefit to using faster ram and/or overclocking ram.If performance does not change (after underclocking ram), then it means you don't need faster ram.Tell us your test results, please.If you need more help, please start a new discussion...
For the past two weeks, I have been playing this mmoRPG. http://projectgorgon.com Project Gorgon is a very old-school type mmo. It's similar to Asheron's Call. No classes. Open world. One map instance (I think). No auction house but vendors sell used items. I never played Everquest, so I can't compare it to EQ. There are lots of quests. Many quests are the usual fetch/delivery/kill quest, but you never repeat any quests. There are literally dozens of skills to...
