Re: Advice Thread

First things first, yes, Handbrake is absolutely fantastic, but only does encoding / conversion. No editing or anything of the sort. I'd suggest Lightworks. http://www.lwks.com It's a full on professional grade tool, that also comes in a free version. The free one has some limitations of output form...

Re: Gaming Desktop Advice

Couple of things I don't understand: You picked a full tower case, but a micro ATX mobo and an R9 Nano. Why? If you want a tiny rig, then at least pair it with a m-atx case too, otherwise stick with the full sized stuff. The R9 Nano in particular is a bad choice as it's significantly slower than a F...

Re: Let's play through our backlogs

So I finished Mad Max after exactly 50 hours. Didn't 100% it, but I did do the vast majority of side quests. Have to say I liked it a lot, yes it's somewhat repetitive but the core gameplay elements are very solid and it got a lot of points from me for art direction, atmosphere and generally getting...

Re: Gaming Desktop Advice

The 6700 has better performance / core, but is only a quad. Now it's true that games generally don't get much advantage (if any) from more cores, but if you're looking to also stream, the 2 extra cores in the 5820 can be assigned to OBS / Xsplit so you minimize performance overhead. Bottom line: gam...

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Anime Frustration

I'd suggest pretty much anything by Makoto Shinkai . * 5 centimeters per second - is basically just a simple story of young love and loss.

The Stallone version of Judge Dredd is also just a gigantic ball of cheese and it's wonderful, and for that matter so is Demolition Man. And if you want to go full on schlock, try the lesser known Class of 1999, which is a film about killer military cyborgs re-purposed as high school teachers. It's ...

Well I was feeling kind of down for the past few days so I thought I'd cheer myself up with something ridiculous and fun. Enter Shadow Warrior , which turned out to be quite good.

Re: Just looted Game Sweden, aid me to sort the gems from ch

Can confirm that Lord of Shadow is indeed great, though it has a lot more in common with God of War or Devil may Cry than Castlevania.
The second one has good core gameplay, sucks at story and setting but it's still probably worth playing if you like the first one.

Well since it seems I simply can't be bothered to put up with Dark Souls' bullshit, I decided to go elsewhere.

Re: Gaming General Chat Thread

Hmm if you've been in there for that long you should be near the end of that section.

You go to a snowy mountain area after that.

I really wish that game did a better job at explaining its ridiculously impenetrable crafting and combo mechanics. I never really got the hang of it.

However this is one of the things that is the same in the books, so I may just be reading too much into that one shot. The only thing I didn't like about this episode is that it seems th...

Well because I turned on my PS3 again after many months of neglect, I may have accidentally the whole Resistance 3. (which was also on my backlog) I quite liked it. I think the Resistance series is severely underrated despite the fact that it's probably the best FPS on the PS3. I mean, yeah playing ...

Well GTA 4 is done. Can't say it was really worth the time spent, but at least I can cross it off the list. It mostly reminded me why I don't particularly like the GTA series or most open world games. They have too many different mechanics and for the most part none are executed particularly well. A...

I don't know; I tend to assume that anything released since 2004 is on Steam, unless I know otherwise for a fact.


And for the most part you'd be right, unfortunately DA:I is an EA product so it's exclusive to Origin.

Yup, there are even a couple of unique ones and several of the weapons can accept scopes as a modification. With high skills and a sneak attack critical to the head you should be able to oneshot ...

Re: Gaming General Chat Thread

I own all of them and I think Killzone is more or less a re-skinned modern military shooter.

It's not bad, but Resistance is by far the better franchise. The first one is not as good as the other 2 though, so keep that in mind.
