1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Those are my exact system specs. Good to know, thanks.

    The browser isn't bad, but having to completely restart the game every time makes it really benefit from an SSD.

    If I may suggest, I would highly recommend playing it on hard mode. I read many recommendations on doing so, but I still chose to play on Normal. While the game was fun and still challenging at points, I think you will really feel the suspense in Hard mode with less ammo and items around to deal with enemies.

    Sorry guys. I typically play story driven games on normal for two reasons. First I believe that "normal" should be considered how the developers intend the game to be played. Second I am in it for the story, not the challenge.

    If I play it again, I'll try a different difficulty.

    I played it in normal first and then in all the harder difficulties. After the first playthrough you´ll want to experience it all over again.

    World War Z research lab scene reminded me of the enemies in last of us.

    Also, make sure to talk to Ellie when ever possible (the Triangle button will appear over her head when you can engage her in conversation). Some of those conversations are pretty cool.

    What you play? I'm about to build my first rig, only thing left is the video card. Hoping this fucking crypto currency mining fad dies down soon so I can get a decent deal on one.

    Also can't figure out why I bought a ps4. There's no games out yet...

    I know they aren't, but their prices were already high. Now they're basically both the same. Was strongly considering the 770, looks like it will run roughly $300, although I've read concerns with using it above 1080p (not enough vram at 2gb, 256bit bus can't effectively use 4gb). Should pair well with my 4770k at least :) Might cheap out with plans to upgrade later though.

    I've got the 4770k as well!! My screens are 1920x1200 and everything seems fine so far, though I guess I've not tried anything particularly taxing yet. May give Skyrim a go with some graphical mods.

    Not sure if I posted this. I'm going through a phase where I'm in love with this game score again. It was massively important to me when I was a child, most likely being my first favorite musical-anything. This sounds very, very cool with headphones.

    Anyone play Rust? It's getting a lot of grass roots type buzz. It's on Steam. You start out as a naked cave man and have to gather resources and craft things to use like weapons and even structures. As I understand it, there are no teams, but you can rally togeather with people to defend yourself as a group and steal things from other people. It's kind of like Minecraft and Day Z. [​IMG]
    Very cool

    So I'm on my second Dark Souls run. I got about halfway through last time and purchased the game again on PS3 so that my friend and I could mess around with co op. This is one of my favorite games period. I play as a pyromancer and generally stay on that path. I can't wait for DS2.

    Stanley Parable is the weirdest and greatest experience I've played this year. Holy shit it's good.

    Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is so so so so good. So much nostalgia when I play it. I loved A Link to the Past so much when I was little.
