Yeah. I have few hundred games on Steam and a bunch on GOG and Origin and couple in uPlay. My biggest problem with PC gaming is that there's million things that can go wrong in the background at any given time and drastically effect your game experience and these can range to most unbelievable and smallest things. Like with Far Cry 3 I had a graphical glitch that I had to disable UAC to fix.
Lookie, Lan! I made a post in the VGD of all places. I really thought this topic was going to be completely different. Something along the lines of all the "cinematic experiences" on the PS4 instead of having actual games. lol
I bought a gaming rig when current console generation was on it's way, but I ended up giving it to my big brother when he wanted to try career gaming. I was testing the waters again when I had it for a week last month, but it still failed to spark desire to move over to PC gaming rather than consoles. Maybe I consider it again next generation. When I was choosing my desktop, barely anyone recommended AMD over NVIDIA, so it's weird that would start a war and taint the whole NVIDIA line. Though if those framerate drops are accurate, I can see why those affected would be pissed off. Currently I have a laptop with GeForce 940M, but haven't played anything on it.
Ah, I see. I think the subreddit system is retarded and never find good ones. I only use the "main" subreddits like /r/gaming.
I didn't know you were PC, bruh. I actually made a thread here a while ago asking for recommendations for games that would really show what PC has to offer over consoles. Got quite a few posts, but next to no help. What got you on board? Oooh, I didn't know there were problems in PC paradise like GPU wars.
Yeah, haven't seen you on the forums in a long while so I was surprised to see it too. I tried abandoning the ship too and going to reddit, but I didn't find that place any better than Gaia even if it has more people. -__-
It's funny how they keep churning out all these items, RIGS and gold generators, but the only way people can afford any of it is if they're heavy Gaia Cash users or win it big at the occasional gold generator they saved up for. I'm not even surprised that they decided to start selling season passes just so people can get all the luxury items in one go.
These days you're lucky if you even see any of the old VGD regulars posting. I know a lot of them that are inactive now or at least semi-inactive. You still get people like Nate/The DBZ guy logging on multiple accounts (since he keeps getting banned) complaining about the VGD not talking about Japanese games or anything else other than Triple A/Indie titles. He'd rather complain about the current state of Gaia/VGD instead of trying his own hand at making a worthwhile thread. It's funny how irony works out in the end.
Ah, I see. I researched in depth to which phone I wanted to get. I saw so many that it kind of got confusing in the end. I was interested in getting a Nexus 5 on Google's Project Fi service since they give you an account credit for whatever left over data you have at the end of the month, but I ended up finding out that they don't have service where I'm at. Luckily I was able to find a sale on my current phone for $200 (originally $300) instead of dropping down $600 - $700 on the newest high-end smartphone. My phone is also the unlocked version so I can pretty much switch between carriers, though I'm currently under my mom's plan because I have to finance the phone through her. I don't have a credit score to speak of so I couldn't do it by myself. It's great for everything I need to do with it though. Why my brother felt the need to spend so much to get an LG G4 is beyond me. There's plenty of low-end or mid-range phones out there that are more than viable.
No worries. I only log onto Gaia early in the mornings and sometimes I'll even randomly skip coming online at all for a couple of days. This place is so desolate now that I've started going to places like Siliconera and Nichegamer for recent obscure video game news. I actually posted a few times in the VGD the other day for the first time in 359 days. I even occasionally log onto Miiverse but mostly just to redeem for the MyNintendo coins reward people get just for logging on. I'm a bit disappointed that you have to purchase games digitally just to get gold coins though. Oh, so you have a phone now? I remember you mentioning on Miiverse once that you felt like the only person in the world who didn't have one. I also didn't have one at the time when I read that, but I recently got an Android phone myself.
Long time no see! I hope everything is well with you.
I hope you haven't accidentally been eating any napkins at Arby's, Lan. I just saw a commercial the other day that mentioned putting all the sliders into an Arby's bag and taking out something without looking and just eating it. Napkins might not taste great, but hey, at least they're edible. You'd have to work for it if it was a plastic straw. lol
