    @Celtic_34: Having an open world does not necessarily lead to a great exploration experience. Like, I fast travel in AC, but spent way too much time roaming the fields of the much less open Dantooine...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic "Plot is Highly overrated" according to developers on the System Wars board

    I can recount the story of my favorite games like Kotor I/II front to back and side to side. Same with Mass Effect and Dragon Age and Halo and Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Did they poll two year olds?

    The only one of those shots that looks moderately impressive is the last one.

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Is console 'next-gen' again holding back PC gaming? on the System Wars board

    Maybe. I mean, next gen consoles are weaker than my gaming laptop. But it would be better to say that people in general are holding back gaming. If everyone dropped $1-2K on a great gaming PC then yo...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic is this a good 500 dollar budget PC build ? on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Any CPU made in the last four years + an Nvidia 750 TI + a bunch of bargain parts from newegg.com and a case should be enough to last you for this console generation, and it'll probably be around $50...

    @MBirdy88: Zenimax Online Studios, Bethesda, whatever. The two have worked with each other long enough that they might as well be the same thing. Plus, that doesn't refute any of the other points mad...

    Dude, people have been saying that ESO would be terrible for a while now (see http://www.gainsense.com/2014/01/the-elder-scrolls-online-will-be.html for my personal favorite take on this). As far as M...

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic Does modded Oblivion look better than console skyrim? on the System Wars board

    Wow Console Skyrim looks disgusting. I've definitely been spoiled by playing the modded PC version.

    Hmm looks good but not too demanding. Hopefully will be able to play it with console settings on my laptop.

  • Magescrew posted a message in the forum topic How long do you want this generation to last? on the System Wars board

    Seeing as the 360 and PS3 were still chugging along up until now, the X1 and PS4 could theoretically last a looooong time. Still hoping for 5 years, though in reality it'll likely last 8-10.

    I don't have that problem. I'm a beast on Bad Company 2 PC and Xbox. Though the PC version is much much better of course.

    I would definitely have taken the 8800GTX in 2006 given the option and assuming I'd have a high end CPU/ram. Consoles are definitely more streamlined and it would have been more of a pain to tweak set...
