Such is the marvel of PC gaming. Pity developers arn't churning out the quality titles they once did.

this is true. fortunately for me most games suck in my opinion. so far in the last several years these are the only games that have kept me interested (in no particular order)

Quake 4
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. shadow of chernobyl
Half Life 2 ep 1-2 as well
Portal
Mirrors Edge
F.E.A.R.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky
Bio Shock 1-2
DEAD SPACE 1-2
Metro 2033
Portal 2
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call Of Pripyat
Skyrim
Singularity
FallOut 3
Area 51
Unreal series

in my opinion most of the games i come across all either have the same run and gun kinda feel or they just ......all seem lacking or samey??? thats the best i can describe it. i miss when it would take a day sometimes 2 to beat a game. now you can beat most games in a few hours. for example homefront took all of 3 hours to finish. i enjoy the stalker games because they take along time to finish and arent just run and gun( ex. F.E.A.R. 3 or cod4) or get to this level to unlock blah blah blah.... this is just my opinion though.

I can largely agree with that list. Loved the STALKER games and Fallout 3 is definitely one of my favorite titles. Although i'll never miss it's random CTD's, lockups and awkward bugs.

The only titles i'm waiting for right now are Diablo 3 and Armed Assault 3, plus any possible Skyrim DLC's. Nothing else catches my interest.

This is also the main reason why i'm running on old LGA775 and DDR2. Nothing has justified new hardware purchases, unless it's GPU.

im on the fence about diablo 3 until i see some video of gameplay, as for fallout 3 i never had any bugs or lock ups at all even on my old pile of crap athlon II oem pc i was running at the time. when it comes to hardware its a hobby for me really. i built it up for a few games i was interested in as well as running autocad and a few other things. as for the case and the w/c and custom paint and other odds and ins i could of saved alot of money and went without.... buuuttt i decided ehhh what the heck why not ill make art out of it, as for my 7870 that was purely just an oooo something new lets screw around with it same with my vertex 4 i dished out the extra 50 bucks to get it over a m4 just because it was new and i wanted to mess around with it. thats honestly why i build half the pc's i do. ill even take older hardware that i havent used in ages throw it on water overclock it throw some good ram and a good gpu in it and sell em for 2-300 as budget gaming rigs after i get bored with benching them. so when it comes down to it im not regreting my decision to buy it but i do feel like im neglecting my hardware by not using it as it should lol.


i wish i could fine an old 775 sli board for dirt cheap and 2 460's or 550's and a good solid core 2 duo or core 2 quad. use it as a folding rig.

Yeah. Shame I saved up for 9 months to fill up that scumbag wallet enough to do this. Guess if I had been thinking ahead I would've looked at what is supposed to be releasing about this time and just waited a bit longer and built something better. Because... You know... Financial Management and all.... It makes it happen.

Upside: Realized I bought Batman Arkham City and Asylum on a half-comatosed steam-sale binge and haven't even downloaded them.

Downside to the upside: Steam still can't manage to reliably download a game while I'm at work. Still waiting....

I guess I could do some piddly stuff in CAD too now. I have something I want to patent just so I can hold it from hitting the market, because I'll never be bold enough to do anything with it.

And if I ever find some physics software that can simulate on a planetary scale, it's on....

What am I doing with my new sound card? Listening to Middle Earth Radio on Radiosure. If you don't understand how heinous this is, go tune in for a moment. You're looking for stream 3.
What do I intend to do with my new 7970? Probably pick skyrim up and play with some mods, but guess what I'm anticipating more than that? Renewing my account on my favorite Text Based MMO....
I think I just trolled myself to the tune of $1500.....

Ditto friend, except mine was right under $3k and yet I continue to invest hundreds more in it with the custom loop on the way. I'm not gonna let this pc not look sick with what its packing tongue.gif

Although it's a combination of me trolling myself along with dice. Don't really have a desire to invest time in anything except play a few games of bf3 every now and then. But because of the performance issues from the last patch(almost 2 months old at this point) plaguing random systems, I am left with a stuttery game even on LOW whit my new system...

Hey, I've still got a couple hundred to go just to improve the aesthetics of it all, and at least a dozen hours of work, not including the sleeving I eventually want to do.

I'm a hermit. No one is ever going to see it but me. biggrin.gif
