I miss PC gaming!
« on: November 17, 2009, 05:55:47 AM »
Remember back in the days.. with Unreal Tournament and stuff! :O

Now im at the point where everytime I want to pick a PC game.. I think "it might not work on my father's pc.." and get it on the 360 for a sure fire way to ensure it will work.. wouldnt be as bad if piraters didnt ruin the take back games policy for stores :(

Honour, Respect, Loyalty.

Been trying to use a dell xps laptop for all my pc gaming needs but it was getting outdated (its was 3-4 years old) and some games where starting to struggle.
so i built myself a monster desktop and dont have that problem anymore

(  I7 2.60ghz 6gb Ram T1 HDD 5870HD )

Theres quite a lot of pc games i couldnt live without and console versions just suck.
Football manager, MMORPGS, Dragon age origins, also theres some big mmorpgs coming up in the next year so wanted to be ready for that.

My laptop is pretty good for gaming though not as good as your desktop Maibs  :)
I've had it for around 9 months & it runs games like Crysis & Gears of War at full settings without any problems, and i can run it to my tv with the HDMI out so i can play on a big screen.

Basic info
Acer Aspire 6930G
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz
4gb Ram
Nvidia 9600m GT 1gb (upto 2gb)

I just ordered a new laptop for work, which puts my personal home PC to shame.

But I doubt I'll be doing much gaming on it.  The closest I'll probably come to "gaming" on my new laptop is RemoteJoy-ing my old PSP through the laptop to my HDTV, while using an Xbox 360 controller.

Good MMO on console is FFXI but after 2-3years of playing it Iquit recently,  I might reget my charecter back though and play until FFXIV comes out next year..  really do miss the game.  Just wish there was more decent people on it instead of selfish fkers!

I enjoyed FFXI for the first couple of days, but as soon as it gets group heavy i lost intrest, too many annoying little p*icks or the complete opposite nobody around at all.

I dont love PC gaming persay, but i love mmorpgs, currently playing a high-profile closed beta and lovin it

My old 386DX struggles with most games nowadays.With only 4mb ram and a 20 mb hardrive,it really does give up.
Can still play kevin toms football manager though.

Now that I have a laptop that has the power to run current-gen games, I've been exploring.

There are some fantastic timeconsumers HERE, and they're all free!  I especially love the MUGEN fighting games (modded Capcom arcade fighters), especially Super Marvel vs. Capcom: Eternity of Heroes.

I'm also kind of excited about now being able to play some Games For Windows Live titles to get achievements that were previously unavailable to me.  I blame Tinker for that.  Many of the older ones can even be found cheaper than the 360 versions.

I would definitely like to play Lost Planet Colonies before I play Lost Planet 2.  I played the original Lost Planet on 360, but "Colonies" is considered a seperate game with seperate achievements.  I'd also like to get achievements for playing Halo 2.   :)

I've still only played through Gears of War & Halo 2 on my laptop so far, cheers Tara  :)

I had a quick go on Tinker but not gone near it since, might give Crysis a go next.
