Poll: Has pc hit an incredible new low point? (76 votes)

Yes 28%
No 72%

It seems, amatuer mods, reusing practically all of the assets from portal 2, are being sold.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/280740

It's worth noting, unlike other titles that originated from mods, this required Portal 2 in order to play. and reuses mod, if not all assets.

With early access, greenlight and now selling childlike mods with a bad gun model, is steam, the savoir or pc gaming, quickly going down the prevail gutter? Like that man melting due to flying too close to the sun, has Gabe Newells aspirations overcame ability?

@inb4uall Did you finish building your rig and ascend to Teh Master Race?

I have all the parts. I'm waiting till a friend gets back from vacation how has done it before. I'm fairly confident I could do it but I want a safety net to prevent me from doing something stupid on accident.

I managed to do it while simply watching the Newegg instructional three part series on my tiny phone. You'll be fine.

Well, many prefer not to show their rig. It solidifies PC beggar status.

You'd do well to mind your own business on things you nothing about.

Building pc is very easy. You just get the motherboard, put the graphics card and the cpu in, then put the cable things on the hardrives. 10 minutes.

My friends, just imagine if Bethesda decided to do this. They have already mentioned wanting mods on consoles.

By selecting the best most popular mods, sticking a price on them, not only can they put them on consoles, they can make revenue from them.

Rather than the immediate moment, having a grand perspective of possible outcomes (like me) can help one see the possible dangers.

Also I'm buying this to assess the quality. Specifically for you.

No one cares what you think

All you do is lie on this forum

if lying was the only thing he did it wouldn't be a problem, there are at least funny trolls, but his posts are just terrible nonsense stupidity. I can't imagine the kind of stupid person that feels any kind of satisfaction by being despised for being an obnoxious troll.

Yes but this proves you're just a spazz who runs into thread for absolutely no reason at all and starts talking about how PC gaming is superior. It doesn't matter if it's true or not. It has nothing to do with the topic at hand and it makes you look like an idiot. Now we know for a fact you aren't a hermit, just a pathetic lunatic.

Yeah, it's usually a lie that starts off one of his arrogant bullshit posts, whether it's "As a child of the 90's", or "a veteran of the Falkland's war", or even "My friends"

Being a child of the 90's must have been harsh

I wasn't asking him to show it. I had discussed parts with him in the past, and knew he had settled on a build so I thought I'd ask how it went

This is the build I went with then. hopefully the link works this time. link

Nice build. I built my new PC a couple of months ago. Since it's been so long since I pc gamed (since 2004 :P ); This video really helped me with my 2nd build. Tek Syndicate, these guys are awesome.

My womb is deeply conflicted. One one hand, I want to support mod developers who put the effort in. On the other, it's a dangerous thing to support, since greedy peoples could try make it standard fodder.

Can't be worse than the corporate DLC packs. That's how I look at it. The more this stuff gets in the hands of gamers and the less in the hands of corporations, the better. Run on HQ, baby.

You're actually correct when you think about it. If he's not a PC gamer then he's either a console gamer or not a gamer at all. So if he isn't a gamer, then what is he doing here anyway?

Don't bother saying anything anti-pc on this forum. It's overwhelmingly hermit central. I've had my posts flagged and even locked just because I dare say something critical about pc gaming.

That annoys me, people shouldn't be so sensitive. , you should be able to say what you want about PC gaming and not have any posts flagged.

I'm a PC gamer, for what its worth (not much) I'll never flag any anti PC posts.

Off topic, but why when someone does something, 'it's PC as a whole' that is blamed. One of the most open platform of the gaming devices.
