    @brad @danryckert If you're going to play Quake at some point, be sure to use QuakeSpasm.It's the most true-to-the-original engine for the game that works well on modern systems.I'd also recommend dis...

    @brad It doesnʼt look that bad for a last-gen game because this generation of consoles is seriously underpowered for what a “new generation” should have been. The hardware is basically fast enough to...

    @alex A “bad PC version” is typically bad relative to other PC games, not to the console versions.Bad on the PC means that the highest-end PCs struggle to keep the game running at 60 FPS, while good P...

    @danryckert @drewbert I find it easiest to roll my thumb off the H button to avoid shooting, rather than let off gently. You probably don't need a full press of L2/R2 to toggle equipped items on/off, ...

    I think it would be a very different—and much easier—game if it had 8-way or analog shooting controls. It's an intentional design decision, and I think the game is better for it.It may not be what you...

    @unastrike You couldn't high-pass the studio audio?Depending on the slope/strength used, something around 180Hz seems to cut most of the noise without affecting speech too much.A tool like iZotope RX...

    @brad The PC version is... not great right now.It is certainly no worse than the console versions, but not a great PC port. The good news is that the framerate lock is basically just "double v-synced"...

    @danryckert The game warns you when there are enemies nearby if you try to save, and lets you pick from the current and previous saves when you load the game, so it should be quite difficult to accide...

    Are you using brighter lights and a faster shutter speed in the studio or something? It was really apparent that the studio feed is 30fps this time, which is not normally the case.Perhaps it's just be...

    @jeff @danryckert While I understand that Gran Turismo is not your thing at all—and that's fine, Horizon 2 looks like it could be a lot of fun—Forza is nowhere close to being as big as GT yet.As of 20...

    @brad has a lot more in common with @danryckert than he realizes. "Even just the neck snapping thing--when this came out--sounded like the coolest thing in the world to me, 'cause, like, I can't think...

    @vinny Be sure that you don't forget thermal paste. Most aftermarket coolers do not have any pre-applied, and many won't come with any in the box.As for which coolers to get, personally I'd recommend ...

  • 00 posted a message on the post Quick Look: Destiny (PS3).

    It's hardly surprising that it just looks like the PS4 version at half the framerate and at a lower resolution. The new consoles aren't really powerful enough to do much more than that. All this talk ...
