    Question PC Gamers - Whatcha playin?

    I noticed we didn't have one of these threads for PC games.

    But yeah, what you guys playing? I play all my games on the PC. So I tend to download games before I decided to purchase them as I don't want to buy a game that's a complete piece of crap, ie Duke Nukem Forever.

    I'm playing through Deus Ex before I start playing Human Revolution (3rd game in the series). I've heard great things about this game and it should help relaunch it into a new light since the 2nd game sucked ass hard. The first game was GOTY and is down as one of the best games for the PC.

    So how bout you?

    I feel like i've been waiting an eternity for another decent PC game to sink myself into; i had a chronic WoW addiction for a while so that kept me interested for 3-4 years.. the last game i really played was Dragon Age: Origins, i'm still puzzled as to how EA managed to fuck up the sequel so severely. At the moment i'm just casually playing TF2 here and there.. while i wait for Elder Scrolls: Skyrim in early November, im sure the 350+ hours of game-play will keep me occupied until Blizzard decides on a release date for Diablo 3, at which point i will no longer be a contributing member of society.

    I never got into Deus Ex, but i heard alot of good things.. during my FPS days it was mainly the Half-Life series that caught most of my attention.

    Same here mala, casually playing TF2 in anticipation of Diablo 3, and also star wars: the old republic. And trying this week long rift trial. lol. Pc gaming has been in a rut for awhile IMHO.

    Played Silent Hill 2 (legit disc) until it refused to work anymore on my PC.

    Played Resident Evil 2 (copy) until it repeatedly crashed my PC.

    Back on my Xbox360....

    Working through Human Revolution, pretty epic for a modern FPS.

    Lately I'm getting back into BZFlag, an old-time favorite. If you can get past the fact that it's not about graphics or realism, it's got a LOT of strategic depth, and I'm still discovering new tactical layers after playing the thing for years.

    Also, Nehrim -- a free total-conversion of TES IV: Oblivion. These developers basically took the Oblivion engine and everything that made that game so great, tweaked and improved a lot of elements that Bethesda failed, and built an entirely new world that is in many ways cooler than Tamriel.

    Having some fun with Bastion, too.

    LEAGUE OF LEGENDS. its free, and balanced even if you dont spend money. 12 million subscribers, a TON of tournaments for it. Surprised none of you mentioned http://na.leagueoflegends.com/news

    Its a very competitive game, like starcraft 1 and 2. Its a DOTA clone, if you ever played that (speaking of DOTA, DOTA2 comes out made by valve soon.). One of the few that will keep you playing all night. Its online multiplayer btw.

    Anyone play Nexuiz? Probably not, but I recommend it, its a very complete and well balanced FPS that is open source and free to download

    ^ I used to play that game!

    Had to give up on League of Legends. Unless you're willing to find a bunch of friends to play with, or atleast another person to dual queue with (for ladder), you cannot hope to have a good experience in the game. The very game mechanics make it so that the team with the worst player WILL lose. It is 100% guaranteed due to snowballing xp, gold, items, and the 5v5(5v4 when you got a baddy) nature of the game. I have probably seen like 1 game in 100 result in a comeback after the 15 minute mark if a team is down on kills. And I've played hundreds of games.

    I can see it being a blast with a core group of friends in a competitive environment. But to come home to and play with random pick up groups after work? F that. Even winning feels lousy because you know that the only reason you won is because their Teemo was 1-9.

    I'm sure many people love it but I just couldn't deal with it anymore.

    most laptops have the Video Card built into the mobo

    so you're SOL there.. some of the more expensive gaming tops allow you to change "cards".. but normally you can't and stuck with what you got.. the common upgrades to a laptop are the HDD and RAM.. everything else with either too expensive to replace or built into the device

    you can get a serious decent laptop for gaming for under 500$

    I have not heard of a new CS coming out? When I was playing CS regularly they talked about re-amping 1.6 with something called CS(Promod). When I was playing counter strike I was considered an expert, and if your familiar with the leagues on there. I played Cal-invite for 5 years, as well as Cevo-Professional. Great times with that game, met a lot of cool people.

    Was someone asking me for my help with an upgrade? If you need help with anyone shoot me a PM I will be more then happy to answer your questions. I know computers very well, especially for gaming
