Re: I need new headphones! What do people recommend?

I got a pair of AKG K553s for about $185 when the exchange rate was good. Phenomenal cans. Have them paired with a tube amp/DAC with a ModMic attached. A bit disappointed in the ModMic in terms of picking up my voice; I had to crank up the mic boost which basically negates the higher quality microph...

Re: Squad

Ahh I got Rifleman on Kickstarter so I would assume its just going through a big list from beginning to end :P The email was short but sweet. It wasn't an automated kickstarter message either it was sent from their website so I would keep a eye out for support@joinsquad.com.

Re: EA admits Star Wars Battlefront lacked the depth some fans wanted

Makena, I think if all the game modes were saturated on PC then it would be fantastic experience. If I had a PS4 I would be considering getting it on that because I personally think the game is great. The 4 maps have an overload of detail, it's truly a fantastic effort.

Re: New Foo Fighters EP - Saint Cecilia [FREE]

20 years ago the Foo Fighters album was released, crazy. Awesome EP. The letter he wrote was interesting too about recent events.

I am also keenly waiting for more info about Sound City season 2.

Kablekill, that may be the coolest thing in this thread. So bummed I can't use the old vinyl player with my amp. No Phono connection, and pre-amps are too expensive.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Fallout 4 has moments where I feel transported. I remember my feelings in FO3 when I left the vault, that wondrous sensation of being in a new world.. and that same feeling has largely been missing from FO4. I had zero expectations so it's not that I'm let down, but maybe, like so many other sequel...

Re: Tabletop Gaming

Starting to get a group of friends circulating around 40k. They introduced me and so we get together when we have time to paint and play. We play few games though as they are always buying more... A mate has like 5000 points of tyranids, which none of them painted but they are all assembled. As soon...

Re: Overwatch

I was expecting this to emulate Heroes of the Storm and Team Fortress 2 and be free with buyables ingame. Not sure I want to fork over $60 for it just yet, really want to give it a try first.

Re: Nostalgia: PC Games you miss

I have been playing through Diablo 2 as I never finished it as a kid. Got my GF tagging along too, its much more fun with a friend. The drop rate seems a tad more favorable than I remember haha, so many rares and several uniques and we have only just finished Act 1. For Nostalgia; Unreal Tournament ...

In terms of moderation, I can't speak for the whole moderator team from the GON forums, but I imagine some/all of us would happily help out in that regard over here, I feel we've all proven ourselves to be trustworthy in that position.

Re: Anno 2505

Yeah it's a pity this Anno is lacking in many features standard in the others. However, for me it fits perfectly as a relaxing city builder. The detached combat means all I need to focus on is supply in and demand out. Obviously it is missing a whole lot of stuff which would make it a fantastic game...

Re: Anno 2505

Got this and loving it! It just... absorbs more of my time then 1404 or 2070 did. Slowly getting through the phases, i think I am still in phase 3 so only just building on the moon. Looking forward to having all 9 regions built up and supplies going everywhere haha.

Re: Welcome All and one

Hello all!

Instinx from GON checking in. Maybe I will be more active on a new forum... maybe not :P. New avatar, updated name, same guy.

Gotta say the hardest thing to get used to is avatars on the right instead of the left as reading from left to right I used the avatars to know who was talking.
