  1. Ah! That makes sense With regards to tinkering - it's definitely something I like doing, but for sure these days usually a click of a button on something like nVidia Experience will sort out pretty everything for...well, pretty much everyone. PC gaming definitely doesn't need to be a hassle. I just like making things a hassle for myself
  2. Me? Because it’s the easiest way to do it? Unless I’ve missed something.
  3. Oh, everything fucking goes bananas on PCs. I'm predominantly a PC gamer and I suspect I always will be. I love building the things and I love tinkering with all the settings and files to eke out the performance and get it as good as I can. But I'm definitely in a minority of silly sods who get perverse pleasure out of it, and whilst I love all this stuff, I'll always be swearing and cursing at certain things that simply don't work how they should do :p . Consoles are generally well behaved individuals, and by contrast I equally love seeing at what clever developers do to push their skills in machines that have absolute limits in their capabilities. Whereas quite honestly I usually get the feeling that I'm only running games better because the hardware is just brute-forcing everything rather than any finesse going on! But, when it does all go right, PC gaming can be a beautiful thing indeed. Now, forgive me whilst I go back to playing Horace...
  4. Still doesn’t run Crysis properly.

    It's just the whole atmosphere and sense of discovery that's so wonderful about the thing. Going down a rabbit hole...deeper and deeper...to places you really didn't expect to arrive at is just fantastic. Also, standing at the top of a world, and looking directly at the sun as it goes super-nova does not get old. Ever.
  6. I don't love the original, but I do appreciate it enormously. I remember seeing it in the cinema on original release and as a young lad who was absolutely looking forward to it I did come out of it feeling a little bit let down. Aside from the light bikes. They are - and will always be - some of the most wonderful design you'll ever see. I really like Legacy though - I'd have loved to see them get the chance to develop the world more, and it's such a gorgeous film to look at to boot. Admittedly, young Jeff was not a good look, but there we go. And yes, Olivia Wilde looked absolutely sensational, as did the 'evil' lady who leads Flynn's son to Michael Sheen.

    Death feels very much similar as Darkest Dungeon to me. Obviously very different games, but both you have to kind of embrace your demise, get back out there and keep on plugging away. For some reason I find it a very addictive gameplay loop. Yet, I found that made something like Bloodborne completely impenetrable for me! God knows what goes on in my mind!
  8. Well, on my tv it looks wonderful:
  9. Nah, don't wait - unless something absolutely miraculous happens, it isn't going to be out anytime soon.
  10. I think it makes perfect sense to release older PS4 exclusives on PC to be honest. My life would be pretty complete if they ever decided to put the Uncharted games onto PC...although that might well be pushing things somewhat.
  11. I think out of all devs out there, CDPR have earned the right to take as long as they fucking well want with their games. The amount of gaming pleasure they've given me over the years dwarfs anything else I've played I think.
  12. I will always, always be in for more Mass Effect. I find them endlessly replayable and effectively replaced Star Wars as my go-to Science fiction fix. This is where Bioware come up with an announcement saying something like: "We've been working on them since Mass Effect 3. Everything we've released recently has been done by Bioware Scunthorpe... We don't use them anymore".
  13. Quite honestly, I'd prefer it to be as innocuous as possible due to it most likely being a stealth purchase and no-one must ever know about my inability to stop spending huge amounts of money on games machinery. It's one of the reasons I pay vast sums of cash for PC upgrades...I'm still running a 486sx-25mhz in that case and no-one can prove otherwise.
  14. Seconded. Despite the similarities to the others it's got its own distinct feel to it too whilst keeping the general combat and gameplay style. It also has a great tale to tell too.
