The last good GTA was San Andreas. They've been total trash since.

The one game they had since SA? lol

I'm playing Sleeping Dogs at the moment and really enjoying it. Will likely not be picking up GTAV immediately because I want to see if I can hold out for the PC version, but we'll see... It looks like a load of fun.

Lately, I've been playing Ultima Online on a T2A server (before it started to get ******).

Yeah. Pretty much. I was also considering the DLC stuff as well.

I like Sleeping Dogs way more than GTA. Just better storytelling and action.

Wouldn't know how else it played, but yeah, I thought the driving was OK. Not great, but passable. Hijacking cars while moving was the highlight of the system.

The only thing that seriously got me about the game was the pacing. Without spoiling everything, I thought the story was going to go on for another arc than it did. It really felt like it was building towards something that never quite came.

So I was looking through the game sale going on Amazon right now and I noticed Dark Souls is $7 on Amazon for a bit. If some of you PC only/mostly PC guys missed it, I highly recommend picking it up. Easily one of the best games of this current console cycle. Just a completely engrossing game that oozes style and atmosphere. Easily some of the best, deepest combat ever found in an RPG as well.

Every issue with the port is fixed with simply unzipping a file as well. Provided you have a controller anyway.

Didn't know you liked it. That's awesome man. Did you know there's a signup for the Dark Souls 2 beta coming up any hour now? PS3 only, but I'm super pumped about it.

I think my favorite things about those games are just how implicit everything is. There's just this real weird, mysterious atmosphere that permeates everything. You really have to discover the story instead of just having it dumped on you throughout the course of the game.

The combat is amazing too. You don't see too many games that punish you as hard for mistakes as Dark Souls does. It also rewards you for engaging with it's systems and learning the mechanics. The movesets for weapons are relatively simple.... but they interface with enemy attacks, blocking, and dodging in such interesting and engaging ways.

But yeah, it's an incredible game and for $7 bucks, everyone should try it. That includes the DLC as well, which was probably the best part of the game.

I almost sprung for one of those after I killed one of my 670's. The current wave of Nvidia cards kind of pissed me off. Everything is a complete refresh aside from the 780, which is both a monster and entirely too expensive. Great card though.

....although I might wait. AMD's new GPU's are supposedly launching in October/November. Supposedly real strong as well, although I don't have any hard benchmarks to confirm that. There's even some smoke out there that Nvidia may launch Maxwell early in response to AMD's punch. Real weird time to be in the market for a graphics card.

Not my thing either. I had a 7950 for mining Buttcoins earlier in the year, but I just didn't like the software as much. Crossfire has some pretty serious issues as well. Heard they fixed them recently, but the microstutter on Crossfire setups was outright intolerable for me last time I played with it.

...but at the very least, new AMD cards will drive the price of the 700 series down. The 780 in particular is ripe for a price cut.

I pretty much couldnt agree more with you. The atmosphere is what sucked me in. I have yet to get the DLC, and my roommate swears hes going to buy it for me one day so I can play through it. Best 30 bucks Ive ever spent.

Did you ever get that fixed by the way? I remember you posting about it but I never saw if you resolved the issue.

You totally should. Without spoiling anything, the second boss fight is among the best in a series that prides itself on having orgasmic bossfights. If you're into the story stuff, the implications the DLC really answers some questions about the primeval serpents and the actual Dark Soul.

But seriously, the storytelling is awesome.



I mean, seriously how awesome is stuff like that? It's all buried fairly deep....but that's part of what makes it so cool.

Don't know if I let you and Jvig know but I did eventually end up beating Dark Souls.

Nice. What kind of characters did you guys play?

I tend to roll mostly pure melee two handing strength weapons. It's statistically weaker than going with Dex based weapons, but it's just so much more fun for me to play. The Claymore is probably my favorite weapon. Whenever I start a new game, I grab some pine reason and kill the dragon on the bridge to grab it. Love how versatile the moveset is.

If you guys haven't played Demon's Souls, that's totally worth playing as well. Dark Souls does some a ton of minor mechanical things that really makes the game feel more refined and the visual style is a little dated, but it's still an absolute blast to play. May even be a little bit harder.

You totally should. Without spoiling anything, the second boss fight is among the best in a series that prides itself on having orgasmic bossfights. If you're into the story stuff, the implications the DLC really answers some questions about the primeval serpents and the actual Dark Soul.

But seriously, the storytelling is awesome.



I mean, seriously how awesome is stuff like that? It's all buried fairly deep....but that's part of what makes it so cool.
Nah I haven't gotten it fixed. I left my computer back home. Honestly when I'm at school I don't get much of a chance to play but I needed to replace the motherboard and the processor and I'm way too broke for that now. Hopefully in a month or two after I get a few paychecks.

That's rough man. I had one of my graphics cards go bad earlier in the year and I was less than pleased....even though it was 100% my fault. Ever find out wat exactly happened?? If I remember correctly, you just installed a new GPU. That shouldn't happen obviously.

If you're going Intel, Haswell didn't really do much for desktop performance unfortunately. Some of the motherboards out there right now are really cool as **** though. With Intel moving more and more on to the chip, boards have really come out with some pretty cool features.

Yeah, I honestly have no idea what happened. It didn't make any sense. I guess maybe something just shorted out on the motherboard which killed the USB ports.

I think my processor is fine but they make like one MB for the current processor I have so it probably just makes more sense to upgrade my processor at the same time.

I'm definitely going Intel. Just had WAY too much success with them to go anything else. I've been looking at some Haswell processors. I may go with an i5 just to save a bit of money.

Think I'm going to get a new case too. My old case was way too cramped for my liking. Made installing new parts a pain in the ass.

Without making any definitive statements about what will happen next gen before they actually happen, an i5 should be absolutely fine. Games have a hard enough time using more than one core and mostly rely on singlethreaded performance. Crysis 3 and Battlefield are exceptions, but the performance gain isn't even that substantial.

Yeah, a big case can be really awesome. Just don't make the same mistake I did with my recent case purchase. I bought a Corsair 900D based purely on how many radiators it could hold for water cooling without bothering to look at the measurements. Whoops. The thing is gargantuan and weights like 50 pounds. Ended up working out for me as I am planning on doing a pretty serious water cooling loop in the near future and I have the space for it, but I probably should have went with something smaller haha. It is nice to have the additional space to work with though...and it does look pretty awesome.
