Computer is 4 years old, with a 1070 and higher parts from that time. For the past few months, maybe even longer but more frequent now, the computer will hard lock during gaming. And not like red dead 2 or more recent stuff, like during both lords of shadow games i played recently.
Currently replaying bioshock series and it happens maybe once an hour of game time, ending with hard locking 3 times during the final 20 minutes of infinite, really took the enjoyment out of the ending.
By hard locking i mean freeze screen, annoying sounds out of speakers, cant alt tab, have to hard reset the computer.
Any ideas to what might be going in the computer? Dont mind replacing a part or 2 if needed to make it last longer but troubleshooting a PC has been a life long anxiety for me.
Dont know the metacritic score but the game does get a lot of hate.....
I fucking loved Dantes Inferno. Been meaning to replay it for a few years now but i played the game years after it came out and it just clicked with me on so many different levels. Im guessing metacritic score is in the mid low 70s but i would say it was my favorite god of war esque game, at least top 3 of those types.
I pretty much only buy games on sale at this point. If there is a franchise or developer releasing a game I will get it day one and try to prioritize playing the game. Example would be Doom Eternal, I waited on Doom 2016 and loved the hell out of it, so pre ordered doom eternal the second I could.
With the new consoles, I think I've decided to build a new computer and work on backlog and games that come out on that platform. I will get a PS5 eventually, might try to wait for a new iteration a year down the road after some exclusives come out, but I just barely play consoles now, let alone games in general, and I prefer to play on the PC anyways. I also really enjoy playing an older game and finding that it still holds up. I finally got around to playing System Shock 2 earlier this year and that game is still fucking incredible 21 years later. Like, top 3 favorite games of all time, wish I played it way back in the day kind of experience.
@sethmode: It's not really taken seriously here in Idaho. It's frustrating. Very much a it hasn't happened to me or I don't know anyone with it so it must be bullshit (obvious largely MAGA country too). My direct boss, who is taking it semi-seriously, will come to be every few days or say complaining about the pandemic and how its stupid or that more people die from "x" then people have died from COVID. Time and time again I rebuke him and prove him wrong or he's not looking at the whole picture.
An example is he was saying that more people die from TB in the world every year than COVID at 1 to 1.5 million people. I then asked him do you know where the worldwide death count is for COVID, which he did not, it was (at this time) near 600,000. COVID is also brand new and only had 8ish months to spread so yeah, it isn't killing that many people, YET. And this is from someone who is somewhat taking it seriously, wearing a mask 60ish% of the time.
Sorry for bitching but this is what I have to deal with everyday, it's so infuriating.
