    Weapon and backpack carrying capacity is very important, I can't believe you can go through levels with the starting backpack size, are you going back and forth to the vending machine?

    Money problems...

    You guys should set up a bank character. Power run that new character to Sanctuary. You can kite weapons/kit to that character for storage.

    Play with a friend, give that friend all your money, switch to your bank character. Have your friend transfer the money to you. Now you're not risking your bankroll every time you die.

    My friends and I already finished the game, so now we're replaying it in True Vault Hunter Mode. It's like 2x as hard. Hard enough that every other Bullymong is a Badass and respawning is a fact of life. We were losing 25k a pop before we decided to set up bank characters.

    Anybody playing Gaige yet? I'm finding her the second most fun character to play (after melee Zero). The Anarchy stack damage can get pretty ridiculous.

    I finished it with a Commando, then started again as a Gunzerkerker, got up to lvl 16 kept getting drops for this Mechromancer character. Hmmmm....did a little research, bought the DL, and BOOYEAH.

    Gaige ROCKS!
    Plus I love any action skills that are "added/droppable/spawnable" rather than gunzerking, etc.

    I'm psyched, because the Gunzerker was like meh, and I was up till 4am playing Gaige. :lol3

    anybody play Crysis 1 on the PC? there are several dozen badass mods for that game that are free to download and play. I've had it since it came out in 07 and still play an hour or 2 every day or every other day.

    heres my new favorite im playing though this week.

    I tried to see if someone posted about this yet. Didn't see one.

    I'm a PC gamer, always have been. I got a custom PC, with a huge library, almost never touch the Xbox, never owned a Sony console.

    I'm also a Sim junky. Or at least, I used to be. The simulation market has fallen on hard times, especially Space Sims.

    I have fond memories of Wing Commander, Tachyon, and Freelancer. EVE Online, is less a space sim, and more a corporation sim. I dont have time for an induction into middle management.

    Anyways. A few days about an Individual named Chris Roberts (creator of the great wing commander games and terrible wing commander movie) came forward with a bunch of demonstration material and a goal. Given his history with video game publishers (and them buying his companies and liquidating them), he wanted to create a crowd funded game cutting out the publisher as a middle man.

    In 4 or so days, he's already received 6,600 pledges for $650,000, despite issues with his website. He needs at least 2 million to make it a reality, and he's go 26 days to get the rest.

    If your a member of the PC Gaming master race, enjoy sci fi or space games, and want to dust off the ole joystick, head over to http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com and help make this project a reality.

    Donate to the arts instead of cancer this one time. If you're thinking about building a PC in the future, help make sure it has something great to run. Save PC Gaming, help revive the Space Sim.

    I'm just trying to get the word out to gamers that have missed the announcement. This game is going to both combat and/or trade oriented. Based on the the CryEngine 3, and most materials you see for it are rendered in the game's engine in real time.

    thanks for sharing that, it is pretty cool looking! I used to play eve as well, i found that if you stuck to the low sec space, you could get along just fine without corporate politics. I had a group of guys i played with from time to time without a lot of requirements like that. I have to agree that it becomes an excersize in the mind-numbing once you hit 0.0 space, if you are trying to accomplish anything useful.

    i still miss it, though. between work, full time school and family though, i don't have any time. it would be nice to have something that i could pick up and put down at will! :1drink

    The new XCOM is decent. The game has it's pluses and minuses compared to the original but it's a good spiritual successor.

    It's also incredibly addictive and more than once this week I've sat down after work and the next time I look at the clock it's almost 1AM :lol3 :doh

    Borderlands2 peeps, if you aren't playing Gaige, you are playing hard mode. with Anarchy and some points in the robot, she is vastly OPed. I finished Finks Slaughterhouse without breaking a sweat. :lol3

    I'm really enjoying Dishonored. I like the fact that you really have to think your way through the levels. You can choose to stand and fight or you can run away. It's not an open world but each mission takes so long to complete it doesn't need to be.

    I was worried that I was approaching the end but there appears to be more killing in store for old Corvo. :evil

    As a side note the copy that I "preordered" through Amazon nearly two weeks ago still hasn't arrived. I guess it's a good this I got pissed last weekend and went to GameStop to grab a copy.

    It's changing though....lots of PC games are now using X Box controllers. There are a few PC only games but lots of the big ones are cross platform, it is basically the place for old school console style games though.

    New code out (posted 35 minutes ago), but they seem to be having an issue with SHIFT. I can't try it out since I'm still at work...

    And posted 14 minutes ago:

    Ok, I've seen a handful of games that look interesting that are PC only, and I need a new PC anyway. School me on what the must haves are for a gaming PC? :ear
    I'm cheap. Thinking craigslist used from some college kid who builds them himself.

    Same 1AM time warp has been happening to me too. Great game, very addicting. There's always one more thing to do.
