Re: Valve release Portal-themed tool to test your rig’s VR readiness

Just for comparison, here's my results of a average gaming PC I had built a year ago (Win7, Z97 mobo, i5 4690k, 250gb SSD, 16gb ddr3, GTX960). But I do intend to upgrade the the GTX960 to either GTX970 or GTX980 before I explore the realms of VR, though that won't be for some time yet. http://i.imgu...

Scratch me up as another that doesn't think it'll see the light of day before it's shut down by copyright issues.

Re: Star Wars Battlefront

Another one here who got their monies worth out of it. Also, I'm not sure how some regard the game as broken as it's always been rock solid stable for me. Naturally the lack of server browser is the biggest issue, and that alone will stop me from purchasing the season pass. If they introduce one it ...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront

Speaking of Turning Point, we are also excited to make this popular mode available on all maps that currently support Walker Assault and Supremacy in the February update. Turning Point is my favourite mode, but for the last three or so weeks I haven't been able to find a active server. So I don't k...

Re: I'm so tired of hearing people bitch about dole bludgers.

I'm in full support of legitimate welfare claimers. I'm not okay with dole-bludgers (by true definition). The thing is, the average taxpaying citizen doesn't distinguish the difference between the bludgers and legitimate recipients doing the right thing. The legitimate recipients get labelled a blu...

Re: Wonder Woman - 2017

Slightly disappointed already. Mainly due to the fact it should've been made a few years ago when Megan Gale was the red hot favourite to score the lead. Megan had at least half a chance to live up to the expectations of Wonder Woman, the bar that Lynda Carter set back in the TV series. Gal Gadot ha...

Are you sure about EA/Origin charging Aussies USD prices? The reason I ask is because everything I've purchased via Origin has been in AUD. Same with Ubisoft's Uplay (IIRC). All Steam purchases have been USD prices though.

Re: Steam hit by security breach - store taken offline

Been checking out the sales on a daily basis and purchasing, downloading/installing and never seen any of the issues mentioned. Only thing that went to shite was the search function that I could see. But that's been fine for the last couple of days as well.

Re: Star Wars Battlefront

Haven't been able to establish a game of any mode for the last two days. Either empty servers or not enough players in server to activate a match.

It's okay though. It's given me a new appreciation for BF4 when I fired it up again for the first time in a while (last night).

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam

Being a gamer that loves anything related to the Vietnam Conflict, I had a smile from ear to ear when I stumbled onto this title earlier today, though I am met with a little disappointment as there doesn't appear to be much info about it. Here's about the only info I've found so far. Rising Storm 2:...

That does suck, Mugsy. But it can be got in good time. For instance, I'm a pretty crappy player but I still managed to earn Han's pistol in just over 30 hours. So I'd gather the average player could have it after 20. Favourite game modes for me are Cargo, Drop Zone then Supremacy. The one thing that...

Pre-ordered a hard copy from OGS in the UK. It was dispatched on the 17th, so if I'm lucky I might have it late next week. Like others though, got plenty of other games to keep me amused in the meantime.
