My question is, which game did you like most? Think my choice would have been Batman.

Good job guys. 10 responses, none of them to do with the guys problems.

OP, I am not sure that the HD free space is affecting your loading times and the pauses it is creating. In the big scheme of things your drive is still about 25% free.

I would run some tests on the drive and see how they look. Try HDtune and run speed test. Make sure the drive is functioning 100% as it should. Then report back.

if you think video games are bad, books are worse. I've been hopelessly addicted to books before. (I'm eyeing you Robert Jordan.) At least when I play video games, I can control myself.

Tell me about it, I've been totally stuck with Kings Dark Tower series. Loads of sleepless nights behind.

I just ran disk defrag and im at 12%. after i will run hdtune.

Also i run my system without a pagefile, that shouldn't be affecting me right? i mean thats why I have 8gb of memory.

Also, I was playing Dead Space 2 and after about 30 minutes it just crashes. I tried on another pc and its fine, the question is, my oc is stable under prime95 blend for 6+ hours, why does it make this game crash? is the game not putting me under enough load to pump the right voltage? I think I have to crank up the voltage another little notch so its stable at half load. If i run F@H client the game does not crash, but this is not the best solution. It does have a nice side effect though.

thanks for the reply.

Actually my favorite was Medal of Honor. I really liked the story, it felt almost real. The characters were realistic and the gameplay was fun. I think that the AI was also very good. Batman was also really fun but it was to short. Just Cause 2 would be right bellow Medal of Honor in my list. That games was just over the top, forget realism and just make you super badass spy man. I think the Just Cause 2 developers said, "lets make spider man without getting sued!" Well it certainly feels like it. Of all the games i have played I would say none of them are bad. They all seemed to be really top notch. Half-Life seemed to be the one that didn't really excite me but i guess that is because of its age, it did make me want to play HL2 and the episodes though.

I cant stand books. I hate reading them. I feel absolutely no immersion. Maybe im reading the wrong books. On my iPad i have 3 books. Along came a spider, A collection of Edgar Allen Poe works and Metro 2033(yea, its a book. I nearly crapped my pants! that it was a book). I cant get through 2 chapters, i loose all interest. It's not that i struggle with reading either, its just that after a while i get bored of them, the story develops to slowly and the description of scenery makes me want to puke. Im always thinking, why not just put a &$*%# picture! The most i was ever addicted to games was when i was 14 i think, I was playing Unreal Championship on xbox all day every day. After school, before school on the weekends. It was just that fun, thats how multiplayer should always be. Clans were real fun back then, not all this BS about training and making membership ito a chore. I was really disappointed with UC3. They should have left instagib in there.
