Destiny can't do it. What hope does the next-gen systems have now?

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

That game is going to be so fucking good.

Hell yeah it is. Just rewatched the E3 gameplay demo yesterday and I can't wait to fill my Mother Base with herds of goats.

I'm slightly disappointed that it's cross-gen though. Despite all the PR bullshit, we all know it still has to cater to the lowest common denominator on some level.

MGSV Phantom Pain and Bloodborne in March = justification of PS4 purchase

Ground Zeroes still looked dope on the PS4 tho.

Nearly forgot about Bloodborne. Hope it lives up to the Souls pedigree.

I convinced my casual gaming buddy to download Dark Souls on GwG last month and it's been a pretty hilarious experience. Whenever we hang out or at work, he's constantly bitching about how hard it is. I'll random texts all the time on "how the fuck do I kill this dude/boss/get pass this area!?" I finally showed him where the Drake Sword was to ease up his experience so he doesn't give up XD

I nearly jizzed myself when I found that second bottle on Link to the Past. Makes the game so much easier. I should start paying the fortune teller visits more often, lol.

If it's anything like the Alpha, a PlayStation Plus membership is needed for cooperative or competitive encounters, but not for the story-based content which you can do solo.

Hey guys, yeah I've been really busy with school and other stuff lately. It all sort of just piled on and I slowly drifted away from GameSpot. I'm good though :). How're you guys?

You can play the story missions with friends without PS Plus from my experience (I don't have PS Plus), but I don't know about competitive. Probably can't do that, like Xaero said.

Ah cool, glad they changed it.

You're not missing out on anything by not doing the PvP. It's easily the worst part of Destiny so far, which really bums me out. D:

@Xaero_Gravity: thanks for the answer my friend.

@XVision84: glad you're doing well my friend, keep up the good work.

Now can anyone give me a code, please? :D

Nice sig btw. :)
I saw your specs. Now I know why you have trouble playing anything other than indies at 1440. :P Assuming you weren't joking though. It's that dual core. While it's pretty good. It will seriously bottleneck you at that res. Your gpu, which is the same as mine, is capable of running that horrible watch_dogs at 1440 with good fps. So it has to be the cpu. But nice build you have there. Hope it is working out for you.

It's a super budget build. the screen is definitely the nicest part of the build and that's because I got an insane deal. I pushed the budget as far as I could and really it's not a huge problem. Everything runs at 1080p and 60 frames which was my goal. The types of games I play are mainly indies. Battlefront, GTA V, and Far Cry 4 are the only demanding games on the horizon that I really want. Plus I can upgrade to a Quad core in the future if it's a huge issue.

What is your steam ID? :3

Upgrading/installing cpus is a pain in the ass lol.

How much did your cpu cost? I don't remember my i5 2500k being more than 250 (euros).

Also try overclocking once you encounter serious bottle necking. But definitely be very careful about that lol.

Hmm, I think you'll regret that decision eventually. You should have waited a bit to get the extra dough. It's not because of the clock speed because my cpu is 3.6 atm, it's the fact that it only has 2 cores and soon enough many games will benefit from hyper-threading more than you'd expect. The more cores you have, the more processing power you have and the more tasks it can perform because the OS will assign 2 virtual cores to each core, effectively giving you 4 and me 8 cores to work with, meaning the OS can give out more tasks simultaneously. I might be wrong.

That's what me and @Ballroompirate have. I like it. :) I've had my set since feb. Only dislike is there is no way to turn the blue light on the mouse off, except by unplugging it. :P

My first build was a budget build. I was quite happy with what if offered, but as I learned more, I wanted better. :P But I'm jealous about the screen, wish I could get that lucky.
As long as it does what you want it to, and you are happy, that's all that matters imo. As for those games (Battlefront, GTA V, and Far Cry 4) some settings might have to be turned down. Not because the gpu can't handle it, but the bottleneck might give you a big problem. I know GTAV and Far Cry 4 will really make your cpu work.
GTAIV really depended on the cpu. Just going from my phenom II x4 965 @4.0ghz to this 4670k (even at stock) I gained x4 the fps, even with the enb enhancer mods. My gpu usage went from 22% to 99%. But yes you can, you'll love having a quad.

Same, though I'd take red instead. :P Would be nice if you could change the colors like some other keyboards offer. My wheel does the same. :( I would use my old mouse, but I gave it to my mom when I set up a computer for her to use.

Kirby is a must blabadon.

Yoshi is crap from what i hear so i didn't play it.

Bravely default had good art and music and gameplay was also good but i haven't finished it. i heard the game drops in quality on chapter 4 or something. i haven't reached there yet though.
