But nooo X3 too little armor and sustain to last in the jungle o.o unless they get lifesteal first but ADCs always start with IE no ifs ands or butts.
But ADCs are too squishy for jungle, most ADCs are late game bloomers.
Better with something like Skarner in the jungle :P everyone fears the scorpion!
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: System423 on 2016-02-08 16:29:48
Well, there are some ADCs that don't start IE. I think Twitch, Vayne, Kalista, and now Jhin don't start IE.
(I loathe Vayne though...so...)

I usually start up Rapid Fire Cannon on Jhin. Gotta get dat attack speed and crit, yo!

All I've got is my laptop that's getting a little old. I think it's about 3 years old? That may not seem old, but like, what with models coming out real fast, yeah, it's somewhat outdated. That being said though, it's still pretty decent for some games....some.

What does that have to do with it being a month old?

Also, it seems you go through a lot of computers. Maybe it isn't just bad luck anymore?? Maybe there's a site you go to that gives it a bad virus and makes it go crazy? I don't know, from conversations it just seems you go through a lot of them.

Did you buy a good quality computer or a not great quality one?  That could be the reason. 
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-06-19 17:58:53
A few days?? No wonder the ram fills up. Do you turn off your computer when you're done with it or do you just like, close it? I think if your computers ram fills up after a few days, you may just have to shut it down everytime you're down for the day. Ram fills up like that when you don't shut off the laptop/computer. I had to do that with my old computer and my dads computer.
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Umbreon on 2016-06-19 18:02:35
I do shut it down after every use but maybe it is because the laptop is cheap.
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-06-19 18:12:48
Sometimes it's better to lay down more money upfront for a good one rather than continue to buy a lot of cheap ones. I learned that the hard way with my phone chargers.

Post by: RainySunshine on 2016-09-01 16:22:36
I thought I would share these images with you, just for fun.  I did it once before on PSF 1.0 I think.

Now before you think I am a bad driver, this game is all about physics and realism in driving, so even if I go too fast, I can easily lose control and wreck.. but I've gotten pretty decent at driving, learned to actually slow down in corners and know what my tires can handle in various conditions. 

So I am going at a decent clip on this smaller cliffside road, about 55mph.  I come to this unexpected bump in the road, but it was unnoticeable as I was approaching it, and I quickly got some air, just enough so that when my car landed, I lost my control.  I over corrected as my car quickly pointed towards the cliff an the ocean below, and my car quickly whipped around and slid off the road and wrapped around this tree.  Pretty sure if this was real... I would have died.  At least I didn't go careening off the cliff!!!!!

Anyone want to go for a drive? ;)

Title: Re: Computer Gaming

It should work.
My friends do it. My friend says the 4 works fine without anything. The 3 one needs a sketchy third party thing to work to spoof it into thinking it's an Xbox controller.

Oh my gosh!  I bought Age of Empires II for dirt cheap.  I remembered it as a kid.  Our old school computers used to have the game, and back then, I was horrible at it.  I bought this solely off nostaglia and to see if I could be any good now.  Anyone else remember this game? :)  I'm like such a giddy school girl right now!

Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-01-06 12:34:19
No.  To me it just comes off that Blizzard is trying to make a statement like, "Look at me!  Look what I did!  We're like everyone else trying to be hip."

To me it was needed information. 
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-06 14:01:59
I think you mean unneeded.

And no, I don't think that Blizzard was trying to be "hip" that's just stupid. I think from conception, Tracer was probably gay. But they waited to reveal it. Because, and this is why it wasn't done to be "hip" and call attention to themselves. They waited. They didn't try to market that to make their game more successful or get people's attention when the game first came out. They waited until well after the game became popular, well after they won the award for best game. It wasn't bait. It was part of Tracer's character. Plus, they have stated before hand that two of their characters in their roster are gay. And Tracer happened to be one of them.

While I don't think it makes her more interesting or a better character, I think they revealed it where it fit best. During a Christmas comic where it talks about friends, family, and loved ones. And since the comic was focusing on Tracer, it was the best place and time to reveal it. And they didn't make a big fuss about it, just oh, huh so she has a girlfriend. That's nice, moving on to Winston.

Personally, I don't care. It was pretty obvious, I mean dat hair. What I don't like is people acting like her being gay suddenly makes her the best character ever and blah blah blah. No, it's just a part of her character. It doesn't make her better. What would, is actual development.
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: System423 on 2017-01-06 19:28:54
It's a stupid "controversy" about stupid "forced diversity" or whatever the shit. It's all stupid. She's gay. Whatever.
(If I had to choose between like or hate it I lean a bit more towards "I like it")
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-06 19:41:08
It's not really forced diversity. It's just people who get mad and annoyed at Tumblerinas for shoving it in their face. If it wasn't for them, most people would just go "yeah okay, cool she's gay". But they get annoyed with it being lauded as "o m gee, DIVERSITY! TRACER IS BEST CHARCTER!!!"
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: System423 on 2017-01-06 20:08:00
Well I mean, like, that's what some people are saying it is. They're saying it's forced because Blizzard is trying to appeal to an audience or some stupid crap. I dunno. But that's where I leave my two cents. The whole thing is dumb.
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-06 20:10:33
Well yeah, no. I don't think it was Blizzard trying to pander. While I don't like Tracer, I can say I'm pretty sure it wasn't done to please an audience. It is really dumb honestly. My only gripe for now is that I wonder if Blizzard will even try to give Tracer more personality or leave her as bland toast since people seem happy enough as it is with her being white bread. Whatever *shrug*
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Wolfwood on 2017-01-06 22:38:37
I thought it was forced diversity... like who the fuk cares?  We don't need to know what the personal lives of these characters are.  They just around shooting up stuff, 

Yes, the world they are creating is cool, but I really don't think this info was needed.  We don't know the personal lives of any other characters, do we? 

If I was them, I would just leave it alone.  Un-needed stupid controversy over nothing.  But great publicity stunt, now you got everyone talking about your game again. 
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Soda on 2017-01-06 22:41:28
I never would have thought Tracer was that way.  I just thought it was some weird modern style.

But then again, who really cares? 
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-06 22:43:57
but it's nice to know their personal lives. Look inside see what makes them tick and stuff. Like, idk, when they introduced Sombra they gave us backstory and a look to how she lived before she joined evil organization #1. It makes the characters more than just people who are shooting. Yea the game itself is just a game and non canon and blah blah blah. But I enjoy the lore.

Backstory wise, Tracer's is one of the most interesting. It's just that she's bland as fuk. So I think they give her these "interesting things" about her to compensate in a way? Idk. Nobody should care that she's gay. It's just part of er character. They didn't try and make it a big deal. It's just, that's who she is. Whoop Dee doo. Now stop freaking out about it Tumblr.
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Wolfwood on 2017-01-06 22:47:46
I'm going to have to disagree.  They did make it a big deal.  It was in their big Christmas comic that they had been promoting would come out, and hinting it would be Tracer themed. They knew that the majority of people love Tracer's character and the publicity she gets.  They knew she was a lot off people's waifu (sorry APD).

They filled up almost half a page with a lesbian kiss.

They knew what they were doing, and they were making a big deal to be in the front of the headlines again.  Next day, Gamespot, Kotaku, IGN, all headliners.  They knew.
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-06 22:54:51
Yeah, but what I mean is that the comic wasn't about Tracer being gay. It just was shown she had a girlfriend, they kissed, and then went to visit Winston. Honestly, of course they're gonna promote their comics. I didn't see it promoted more than there other ones, except them saying it's Christmas ahhhh! And yeah, of course they're going to say what character it's going to be focused on. Most of their comics focus on singular characters, only like 1 or 2 focus on multiple characters. So yeah, when promoting the comic they're gonna say it's the Christmas Tracer comic. And yes, for some bizzare reason a lot of people like Tracer. Mostly because they have her in trash ships. Not even good waifu material imo. But whatever.

I just get the feeling they didn't just make her gay for a promotional stunt. I think she was just always gay for them. They just didn't know when, how, or if to share it. Since they have stated before two of their characters are gay.

Just because others made it a big deal, does not mean they made it a big deal. Everyone else shit their pants. They just drew two girls kissing. They didn't tell people "freak out". And honestly, people already talk about the game a shit ton. Their sales are going to increase anyway regardless of the comic because it's Christmas and they had a kickass sale on the game. Got the origin edition for $10.

Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-01-06 23:00:05
No we do not. They said that incredibly early I think when someone asked about it. Who knows if they'll release it *shrug* I just, hmm, appreciate in a sense that it was something they knew about the characters. Not just "hmm... Well let's make this one gay for the hell of it".

The Nvidia 1060 is a good device and the new version of the Nvidia GTX 960.  They are about the same, but the 1060 is a bit more optimized.  Good upper device.

If you like city-builder type games, I ran into this game today and it looks very promising to me.  There is no way to play it yet, but it just looks neat.  I like it's design visually so far and looks to be a peaceful game.

You might be interested in it too, so feel free to tell me what you think. :)  I will wait a bit before I buy it... want to see if it will actually get completed.

I wonder if they will make Red Dead II for the PC?  It took a handful of years for Rockstar to release GTA V on the PC, and when they did, it was incredible.

 I am sure they will do it again...

But also realize, Rockstar never released RDR I for the PC.  Will they ever port it?
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: System423 on 2018-10-14 19:53:42
I doubt they'd port it, but I have a feeling they'd port RD2 considering PC gaming is (from my understanding) a lot more popular than it was when RDR came out.

Also how long did it take for GTAV to get on PC? Was it really a few years?
Title: Re: Computer Gaming
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2018-10-14 23:34:23
GTA V came out in 2013 for the PS3 then the Xbox 360. 

It was then released in 2014 for the PS4 and Xbox One with new improved graphics for the HD systems.

Finally in 2015, GTA V was released for PC and Mac.  It was totally optimized with graphics better then the HD systems.




GTA IV, if you are curious, came out in 2008.  Later in that same year, they released the game for computers.

Cities:Skylines.  The recent DLC has been great for this game.  Industries was awesome as was Parks.  You can make very realistic cities now. :) Loving the game more than in the past.
