  • alanm26v5 posted a message in the forum topic With This New Video Series... on the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria board.

    The people I played with over the years all stopped playing, so every time I resubscribe I'm in an empty inactive guild. I'll probably check out the expansion either way, it's just a question on how m...

  • alanm26v5 posted a message in the forum topic New Artifact System (AKA: LoL Runes) on the Heroes of the Storm board.

    I don't quite see the issue here, though I'm not a veteran MOBA player. You can't buy gold with real money, and once you get to account level 10 (which doesn't take very long) all gold and quest unlo...

    I got in about 6 weeks ago (NA). I never got into any other MOBAs despite trying LoL several times, but it never clicked. I instantly got this one though and am excited for it to launch. I was hooked...

    Current Samsung EVOs have been on sale a ton lately because of a new line of them coming out soon. I would get a 250GB SSD for your OS and current games your playing, then use Steam Mover to move the ...

    Hopefully the Chromecast can handle it, and then assuming GB uploads 60FPS to Youtube, I could get 60FPS quicklooks on the couch without having to download videos in advance.

    I have some trading card wallet money built up so I might finally get Borderlands 2 and/or AC4. Probably some random indie stuff too, though I probably haven't launched the stuff I bought from the win...

  • alanm26v5 posted a message in the forum topic WoW Advice on the PC board.

    I don't see any reason to switch personally. Now if it had a built in rechargeable battery, I'd happily await the new wireless dongle and then pick up both.

    I got a $70 120 GB SSD last year. Now that game install sizes are increasing I almost want a larger one, but honestly, the big benefit is primarily getting the OS on there. Gains from having games can...
