• alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic What was the First Game You Bought on Steam?. on the Steam board

    Well, I guess Half-Life 2 is technically the first game I bought for Steam, except I didn't really buy it on Steam, and I didn't use Steam for years afterwards. The first game I bought through Steam s...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic 2015 is Halfway over. What are your favorite games so far?. on the General Discussion board

    I would probably say Witcher 3, if the XP bug didn't stop me from playing. I'm gonna come back to it over the summer. What I played so far, I really enjoy.So, either Bloodborne or MKX then. I have som...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Top 5 E3 2015 Games. on the E3 2015 board

    1 - Fallout 4, but frankly, Bethesda could've just shown the logo and it'd still be #1.2 - Mario Maker. Damn it, Nintendo. You're gonna make me buy a Wii U, aren't you?3 - Horizon. Definitely the high...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Never played a Ratchet game, where should I start?. on the Ratchet & Clank board

    Start with whichever you can get your hands on at a reasonable price. Don't bother playing every game either. I don't think a playthrough of an earlier game is really warranted and they're all pretty ...

    I have very fond memories of The Lost World when I was a kid, but seeing it again as adult, it just goes on and on and on. It's simply too long and no engaging characters. The dinosaur action is fun, ...

    American cars have a spotty track record when it comes to reliability. Ford does okay in reliability surveys, but parts for Fords have been made in Germany for a number of years now. European outside ...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic PS4 Or Xbox?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    PS4 should run the game ever so slightly better due to hardware, and I still don't like the Xbox controller as much as PS4(take that with a grain a salt, I didn't like the 360 controller initially, an...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Bloodrayne for Mortal Kombat!!!. on the Mortal Kombat X board

    Meh, I think two guest characters are enough for one game. Given that MK already have a blood-powered red female ass-kicker(Skarlet), why pay a a licensing fee for someone who's so similar?Besides, I'...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Any one else finding themselves selling their PS4/Xbox One?. on the General Discussion board

    You make a good point. While I've purposefully bought multiplatform games for my PS4 as of late, I realize that most of them would be as good, if not better on my PC. The value proposition for a new c...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Why phones cost, like, three hundred dollars, man?. on the Off-Topic board

    Look, Apple release products on an annual basis. It's not worth it to get a new device every year, especially when the differences are as incremental as they are. Either every two years or maybe even ...

    I am of the opinion that MGS is the newest form of the Endurance Run, just with longer, less frequent episodes.

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Do you play old games / old consoles?. on the General Discussion board

    My NES kicked it a while ago, which lead me to buying a Wii and spending in excess of $100 on virtual console games. Old games is the only reason it's still hooked up. I still have my PS2 hooked up to...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Good Point in The Game to Chose between NCR or Legion. on the Fallout: New Vegas board

    I'd say make a save point just before confronting Benny on the strip. That's where the story really starts rolling and you can pretty much side with whatever faction you want afterwards, as long as yo...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic How many save slots do you use during a playthrough?. on the General Discussion board

    Depends on the game. Sometimes I use one for a few hours, then when I've progressed some in the game, I pick a different one, and get progressively more saves as I advance.Other games I only use one, ...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Tony Hawk Game. on the Tony Hawk board

    I'll say 2. I think 4 is probably the sweet spot for me, in terms of how the trick system progressed. I have some appreciation for what Underground 2 did, by splitting the game into two with story mod...

    I'm by no means an expert, but I thought he ejected a bullet into the chamber so that the next time he pulled the trigger, the gun would fire, instead of dry-firing and then automatically ejecting a b...

  • alexl86 posted a message in the forum topic New to CRPGs, where to start?. on the PC board

    Fallout 2 is probably your best bet for an older CRPG. It's everything it's predecessor was, and more. If you prefer something more fantasy-based, then Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale are both excellent...

    Wow. I felt kinda bad for upgrading my HD7950 to a GTX 970... And now I can't stop thinking about buying a new CPU(go from i5 to i7), a new mobo(because for some stupid reason I have an LG1155) to fi...

    The Evga card's heatpipes aren't aligned properly, so the Evga cards will run hotter than it competitors. It probably won't be a big problem, but a MSI gaming, Gigabyte G1 Gaming or a Asus Strix shoul...
