These two games I played endlessly as a kid. After finishing The Crew, I just turned off the music and I've been playing these soundtracks on my laptop. It's, like, a completely different experience with all the right music playing.

Most of this week was spent watching the Cowboy bebop complete collection that I ordered and I have to say it sucks being on the last two episodes considering the episode before the two parter ends pretty depressingly. I thought there was some quality drop halfway through the series but damn it's still pretty great. Can't wait to finish it up tomorrow.

Also i picked up Far cry 4 this tuesday and the hour I played of it was pretty good so far. Also Pick up #idarb for the xbone since it's the free game with gold this month and It looks pretty fucking fun so I think I'm going to try that right now actually Thank god for no work tomorrow

Hey guys, im considering buying a new system with my tax refund when i get that, but I don't know what I want to get, So could I get some advice?

1) Ps3 - Pros: Sweet JRPGs and low price right now. Free internet play makes it a plus for when Microsoft shuts down the 360 or I stop paying Live.
Cons: Last Gen, don't know how big online communities are.
2)Ps4 - Pros: Most likely going to be Sweet JRPGs and GUILTY GEAR XRD the hype is real
Cons: Will have to pay for PS+ along with Live if I want to alternate between 360 and ps4, expensive, lack of big game selection at the moment
3) Wii U - Pros: HOLY SHIT BALLS AMAZING GAMES
Cons: lack of big game selection at the moment

Any advice guys

The more and more I see the direction games are going, the more and more I'm tempted to agree with you
User avatar #1161354 to #1161348 - grasman ONLINE (2 hours ago) [-]
Well, obivously you know what I was gonna say.
If PC is out of the question I would go for PS4.

>Free internet play makes it a plus for when Microsoft shuts down the 360 or I stop paying Live.
You know in reailty woulnd't the PS3 network go down first since you know no one pays for it?

also guilty gears is on PS3 as well


ALSO PC MASTER RACE
User avatar #1161358 to #1161353 - StaticX (2 hours ago) [-]
I would think so, but then again, they are still supporting the psp online play...so i don't know what Sony's plan is, but in case they do shut i down...i want to still play guilty gear, because guilty gear

Get a ps3 and hack it/flash it/whatever the fuck.

Just finished dying light. I don't have a bad pc by any means, but for me( and a lot of other people) the framerate is pretty bad. Was able to get it running somewhat acceptable, but I had to sacrifice FOV and while it doesn't make me motion sick it does just look goofy to me and I prefer a higher FOV if possible. The gameplay is fun, nothing better than dropkicking a zombie of a roof, and the parkour adds to the already fun dead island style combat. Story is hit or miss, I found it alright, but was already kinda expecting that. I do hate the ending though, not the fact that you see it a mile away, but the fact that the final boss if a motherfucking qte sequence. Can devs stop with this? There were plenty of mechanics for you to work into a boss fight here and instead we get qte. Still had fun with it though.
User avatar #1161355 to #1161347 - ghostninja (2 hours ago) [-]
Damn I think i'll pick this shit up when it drops a bit for my xbone

all i've been hearing is how fun and better it is the Dead Island and hell i thought that game was decent
User avatar #1161368 to #1161355 - cozer (1 hour ago) [-]
Yeah, it's a good game, just not on pc currently unless you have an expensive ass rig.
User avatar #1161342 - cycloneclone (2 hours ago) [-]
Just finished Resistance FoM.
Actually fairly surprised by how decent it was.
Overall its pretty fun if a bit tedious. I actually found it better turning the game on easy, it seemed to make it a bit less cover based and more run and gun style. Although you could hardly call it run since Hale is really, really fucking slow.
Guns were all pretty big and powerful, and you can hold all of them at once which is really nice.
Atmosphere and setting are pretty decent. Graphics are poor but were probably good at the time.
Boss battles are pretty meh, sometimes felt a bit unfair. Vehicles sections are hit and miss.
Worst part by far is the story, they should of just left it out completely. Cliches, cliches, cliches. Overall doesn't ruin the overall experience. Sucks they turned off the multiplayer servers last year, everyone says they were a lot of fun.
I feel like the developers took A LOT of influence from Half-Life 2. Not necessarily a bad or good thing, just something I found interesting.
User avatar #1161345 to #1161342 - unikornking ONLINE (2 hours ago) [-]
2 Is much better, and has really awesome boss fights. It is a HUGE improvement. Can't say anything for 3.

I watched the trailer of the Fahrenheit HD Remastered edition and I have to say I'm pretty disappointed.
What is actually made HD?
Has anyone found some good comparison screenshots?
They seem to have paid every gaming website not to put them up.
Or the difference is so low they didn't even bother to waste the time.
Pretty weak stuff.

Do you think I'd be able to run Battlefield 3 on medium settings at 30+ fps on a 1440x900 monitor (that or it's a 1366x768) with these specs?

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz
6 GB RAM
Sapphire HD 7770 1GB
User avatar #1161376 to #1161328 - avatarsarefornoobs (58 minutes ago) [-]
i disagree with grasman, ive had a similar setup at one point and ran bf3 alright. its actually not very demanding.
i think you could, 6g of ram would probably be ok, and the graphics card could probably handle it. the processor is likely the weakest point. but i think you could possibly do it. might be like, medium low to ensure 100 percent 30fps
User avatar #1161377 to #1161376 - grasman ONLINE (48 minutes ago) [-]
I actually have 6GB Ram right now, because 2GB broke, and sometimes when I'm using photoshop, unity3d and firefox with a lot of tabs opened together with the typical background programs I get warnings that I don't have enough Ram.

So, depending on the programs he has installed and more importantly in the autostart it's very possible he gets warnings as soon as he opens the game.

Yes, the graphics card is alright.

But the cpu is a serious bottleneck. I think it won't run very well.
I also heard the online performance and netcode is very heavy on the cpu.
User avatar #1161378 to #1161377 - avatarsarefornoobs (48 minutes ago) [-]
you could be right. the only way for him to know for sure is to try it.
User avatar #1161379 to #1161378 - grasman ONLINE (45 minutes ago) [-]
well, yes.
sadly he can't even properly test it with a cracked version because singleplayer and multiplayer is huge difference performance-wise.
User avatar #1161346 to #1161328 - grasman ONLINE (2 hours ago) [-]
I highly doubt it.
Core 2 Duo has only 2 cores.
6 GB Ram is barely enough and you would have to close everything else including even the webbrowser.
The graphics card could possibly handle it but 1GB VRam is also barely enough to have a good gaming experience.

Battlefield 3 is a resource hungry beast of a game and it demands a fast cpu at least a quad core.
It will most likely melt your PC to the ground.
I wouldn't recommend it.

You know the company MadCatz? The one that makes cheap third party accessories?
Well, they're actually fairly well know for making those kind of sticks. They have various levels of quality at various price ranges, and you could find a cheap one for whatever systems you want.
There are also various other companies too, the one that kitty linked you would be a decent starting one, but don't expect it to last too long if you use it a lot. These sticks are one of the things were you get what you pay for.
Or you can make your own like I'm doing, but again, you get what you pay for as far as the buttons, the stick, and the PCB board. The best thing about this way is that it would be completely custom to your liking.

Oh wow thank you
User avatar #1161339 to #1161335 - ScottP (3 hours ago) [-]
That one is popular with modders because it's apparently easy to mod. However, it's not good for high-level play.
User avatar #1161340 to #1161339 - brackgrapple (3 hours ago) [-]
I doubt ill ever be high level for these games
User avatar #1161337 to #1161335 - krystalkitty ONLINE (3 hours ago) [-]
No problem. If you want better quality you should look for one that's sponsored by fighting game communities. Also there are people who make custom made ones.

I don't play fighting games though, so not exactly sure which companies or people are reliable.

played the first episode of life is strange

it feels like ever dude is an asshole to point of being a phsyco sometimes (except for the one white knight) while all the girls seem like they come straight out of tumblr (except for that one bully). they are all awkward hipsters and the whole selling point of sudden time travel powers hasnt really done much for the story so far. its mostly just "go back to last decision and here the other choice out before deciding what you actually want, making the whole decision based point and click walking deadisk nature of it easier and less tence.

probably not going to pick up episode 2

btw i know only faggots believe in the friendzome, but you are totally friendzoning that guy

at least this is actually a game...

well actually it arguably isnt, since you cant really die
whenever you "die" the game pauses like in braid and you just rewind and get out of the way...

then again, that would mean that braid isnt a game so nevemind

I only played it for about 15 minutes because I want to wait and play it again with my friends.
But the graphics seem to had a little spit shine, the ship seems to have more functionality, and there are more quests to actually teach you.

User avatar #1161298 to #1161294 - reaperoxide ONLINE (4 hours ago) [-]
Yea I haven't overclocked mine yet because I haven't been able to get a better cpu cooler, I only have a stock one.
User avatar #1161300 to #1161298 - crimsontyyde ONLINE (4 hours ago) [-]
Well, my CPU is overclocked via my MSI motherboard with the OC genie thing since I'm too lazy to mess with it, but my new GPU is a factory overclocked 290x, so it could be a console port that just doesn't support overclocked stuff well.
