Picked up Gears of War 2 GOTY edition for $1 today. I'm about two hours in, and am enjoying the grandness of the game. The world is much larger than the first. Gameplay seems about the same.

I also recently finished Fallout 3's main quest. That game really grew on me. There is still so much left to complete though. Not sure if I'll finish 100% of it.

Anyone else watching the VGX awards? Telltale Games is coming out with Game Of Thrones and Borderlands related games. Fuck yeah!




Telltale Games is soooooo good.

Bought a gaming PC and have looked into what I missed since I last had a high-end machine. Got Neverwinter Nights 2 waiting at home today to start my exploration.

How much does a gaming PC run? I've heard once you vet a decent set up, you just need to upgrade video cards every so often?

Damn man, you wait a while to get your games. I think I played that back in the summer of '08. Fun game though, I'm assuming you got the diamond version with all the expansions. I played the first campaign through like 4 times.

The Diamond version USED is $80! That's how you know a game is awesome though.

I bought my last PC in 03' and it couldn't run anything after a few years without major upgrades, so I quit on it.

It really depends.

My brother is a huge PC gaming guy and said the days of massive upgrades are pretty much over. Most games coming out aren't so intensive that you can't get a system for $600 that can't play everything out there.

I got a $550 model but it was cheaper because it has Windows 7 on it instead of Windows 8. Can run anything on the market today at reasonably high settings and old games look amazing. At maxed out settings, NWN2 looks better than anything on console.

My favorite character from that game was the wizard. His battle cry when you select him and target an enemy was an apathetic "yay let's attack..." though the gnome guy would yell "ready or not, here I come!" Flamboyently.
Have you played through before? I think I had a monk (who may have become a weapon master), a wizard who became a red wizard, a storm lord, and a dueler. Damn I really put time into that game, might play again on the laptop.

Pc gaming as a whole is weak these days. Gone are the times of age of empires, total annihlation/supreme commander, and command and conquer. Also, half life, counter strike, and team fortress.
Steam itself manages to keep things interesting though, loadout is a free fps all the kids are playing.

I'm still crushing tower defense games.

Finished Gears of War 2. The final boss was quite easy compared to the first game. I think I had to replay the first over 20 times before I finally beat him. I did it first try on GoW 2.

Just starting Far Cry 3. Seems like a cool game so far. I'm only about an hour in.

Far Cry 3 is really good. Lots to do and challenging.

Just played the mission in Far Cry 3 where you have to burn several weed fields, and the "Make Dem Burn" song comes on. One of the best missions in a game ever. It was perfectly paired with the music.
