I also recently played Global Agenda which was ok but really lackluster too. PlanetSide was neat when it first came out, but people have to do a lot more to make FPSMMO a viable market.

Yeah I guess. Like I said, I did like the talent tree/skill system.. thought it was neat, and I really like Bard/Minstrel classes in games so that was a turn-on but overall, after the 10 days, I just felt meh about it.

Most servers have anti-cheat stuff on, and items were always part of the game. You can get every item through playing that you can buy anyway, so it isn't a big deal.

I've been playing it like crazy and it's so gd fun. Forenci and I (and another friend of mine) were heavy-medicing it up last night. Let me know if people feel like playing with us.

I just have to say that I love digging threw my closet of goodies.Came home for the weekend to get of MT Rainier in Washington.Since I bought a new laptop to play games I decided to go threw and see if I could find some old games to play in this laptop.What I found was Triple Play 2001,Return Fire 2 and NCAA fine four 97 should be pretty interesting to play again.Does any one else love playing older games on the PC?

If anyone was curious but was turned off because it's a port I got a copy of Bulletstorm a week or so ago, one of the most fun games I've played in a while.

It's extremely linear and has a really lame story, but holy **** is it a lot of fun, whipping enemies out of cover, kicking them toward spikes while shooting them in the crotch.

Get suicide bomber type vests, shoot enemies, kick them toward their buddies then detonate them. Rolling bombs that you can bounce off balls and around corners.

Sniper rifles that allow you to turn an enemy in a puppet you can then explode, the list of fun stuff to do is pretty long.

Also your character is voiced as Spike Spiegel. It can't get much more awesome than that. I just wish the game had a versus type multiplayer.

Wired controllers work fine on PC, haven't tried wireless.

Mine works great but I think it would be cheaper to just get a wired xbox controller.

I don't know if there's a general PC Thread or a Technological thread, but I'm wondering if someone can give me some info. I've had my current computer for probably 5 years and it's dying a slow death.. It gets really slow at times. Anyways, I'm thinking about getting a new computer this summer.

So can someone tell me what the general specs are on computers these days? The technology passed me by quickly. I'm not a PC gamer really but I'd like to be able to play a FPS comfortably if one caught my eye.. I don't want to spend a lot but I also don't want to have to replace a new computer in a few years again. Someone provide me with some guidance plz.

I had around $600 in mind.. but if there was something good enough I'd be willing to do $800-$900.

To buy a box PC, it's really tough to get anything decent at that price. Most of those will have integrated graphics cards which is no bueno.

The very basic things to look for are an i5 Intel processor and an nVidia GeForce graphics card. You're usually in pretty decent shape if you've got those two because everything else should be in place to support them anyway.

Just buy more RAM.
The one thing I always hated about box systems like that is you never know what brand parts your getting iside. I have always been real particular about the brands of parts I buy. For instance I only purchase ASUS and Biostar MoBo's, XFX and EVGA Brand Nvidia Video Cards, Western Digital and Samsung Hardrives, and OCZ RAM (sometimes Kingston).

The video Card that one comes with is particularly low end. Plus if you want to get more RAM you are going to have to buy 2 x 4 gig sticks and basically scrap your ones that come with it so you will need to add another $60 onto that price.

Take some time, go to newegg. Go in with the amount you want to spend and piece one together. You will come out ahead with a better computer for cheaper. I just put one together to see what it would come out to. You will have similar processor, better ram and more ram, better mobo, better Hardrive, Way better Graphics card, Full tower case and probably a better power supply for $483.94. You could probably drop the price $50 on a mid tower case and another $40 for a cheaper card. A cheaper Mobo could drop ya around 10-20 bucks too.

Putting together a computer is easy.

also just noticed the one at walmarts optimal setting for Black ops was low and its ones for wow are medium. Thats not very good.

Don't ever buy electronics from Wal-Mart (or Radioshack). That is a terrible choice. Also, the specs on that PC aren't good, the parts in it are trash, and you'll have all kinds of problems with it because it's a cheap box (not talking price). Don't buy that computer.

You can get a really good machine for $500. If you don't mind putting it together, Tom's Hardware does the hard work for you...just do what this says:

The only thing I'd change is bump the CPU up to an i5 if possible (though they use a really high quality i3).

let's try not to spread ridiculous misinformation due to user bias.
It's not misinformation. Retailer and Manufacturer are highly relevant.

Telling him to buy something like that doesn't help. He asked the question so he doesn't end up with a hunk of trash like that machine.

I'm steering him towards good quality for the price and reliability. He'll end up spending a lot more money fixing/replacing that Wal-Mart machine.

Yeah, I don't really intend on playing any PC games but I'd like to be able to if I came across one.

I haven't ever build a computer.. I've taken mine apart and replaced RAM and such.. I'm sure building one isn't the most difficult thing in the world and I could find some videos to help out too. I probably wouldn't be against that
