    Hello Giant Bomb and welcome to the all new PC Screenshot thread. Before we dive into the ultimate posting picture gaming experience, I would like to run by some simple rules with you so this doesn't turn into a cluster fuck.

    Simple Guidelines:

    • Keeping the discussion to the topic of what the screenshot is and not your computer's processing power
    • Original screen shots, please.
    • Screenshots are to be of Gamesonly.
    • Please no picture spam. I've seen this before where people would just post 10 large screenshots with no context and move on. If you are going to post something, at least put some text as to why.
    • Standard sized large images, please.

    With that out of the way, I will start the festivities.

    A little gem from RE5.

    I think the problem with this kind of thread is that we already have easy access to a vast array of PC screenshots in the wiki. And if you have a good screenshot that's not in the wiki, then you can submit it.

    If we do this, can we keep out all the arguing idiots? Last time this happened the thread was locked because people couldn't keep their own opinions out.

    Been Playing some Arma II Free... Its a ton of fun! You should check it out. I'll try and not make this spam.

    We are saved! I've never had so much waiting for an evac helicopter. But there is alot of waiting to be saved... Best Mountain Bike simulation, EVER! Danger Close... Luckily Arma II players are precise with their demolitions. Arma pilots are not so precise, the Blackhawk had 18 guys on board, the pilot must have made a mistake because instead of taking off, he flipped the heli killing everyone, I was late to the evac point so I wasn't on board.

    I too was playing Arma 2 recently with a friend. We decided to do some co-op campaign missions. Right click view image and get rid of _super in the URL to see the fullsize screens. Thanks BeachThunder

    I love the design of War.

    And playing this in 1080P and at a high framerate really helps the look of the game.

    Does anybody know where to find pictures you took on Steam?  I know you can view them through Steam, but how would I go about putting them on here?

    Find a game that you've taken screenshots of and click "VIEW SCREENSHOT LIBRARY", then click on "SHOW ON DISK".
     
    I would recommend not using Steam's screenshot feature though, as it uses some pretty heavy jpeg compression.

    @Mikemcn: Do you play ArmA 2 Free just with random people on servers, or do you know some dudes who also have it? I've had a terrible time trying to find any games that have any semblance of tactics, especially due to the fact noone is really talking. I can imagine it'd be great fun if you had a group together, but sadly none of my friends care for milsims... Hence why I never bought the full game. 
     
    Also, I totally didn't know ArmA had roleplaying servers - I ended up in one where it was some sort of Cops and Robbers RPG - really now?

    I used to take so many screenshots for a forum I used to visit, and now I just submit them to the wiki. I skipped taking screenshots on beautiful games lately, but here is some of my latest ones....

    Some Crysis 2 pre DX11 patch, Mass Effect 2 and Fallout New Vegas.

    The free version supposedly lacks 'HD' graphics. Do you have it on max settings there? Because at first glance that looks a lot worse than what Zimbo posted.

    @Mikemcn: Is that what they mean by the 'No HD Graphics', or do you just have a shitty PC?

    I'm confused by your question.

    The free version supposedly lacks 'HD' graphics. Do you have it on max settings there? Because at first glance that looks a lot worse than what Zimbo posted.
    I have it on High settings, theres an ultra setting after that I think. I wasnt aware the free version lacked anything like that, but it doesnt bother me.
