Bioshock 2...........WOW!!! (spoilers)

SO I FINALLY finished playing Bioshock 2, and WHAT A GAME!!!! jeez, I mean, I wasn't expecting much because I played the 1st one a WHILE ago but I started playing it and I found myself VERY engrossed in the world. My PC isn't the beast it used to be (bought it 2 years ago) so the graphics weren't cranked up, (to be fair to Jarvis, I don't think that the game is a graphical powerhouse ala Crysis 2 & BF3) but the art style and everything else was so well done that I just loved it.

I finally realised why a lot of previews/reviews say that Rapture is a major character in the story! I really liked the characters, I felt pretty bummed about what happened to Sinclair. I went the goody 2 shoes route because I'm just that typew of person, and I'm glad I did because the ending actually struck a chord with me, seeing Eleanor help out her mother at the end and stuff, that was pretty awesome.

Overall, the game was brilliant, I'd give it a 9/10 simply becuse it was quite buggy, my saves got corrupted a couple of times and some other glitches were noticeable, but otherwise, it's really a MUST play for anyone who enjoys games that are a lil more that point and shoot. I know that in the end, that is what you mainly do, but the story behind it just drove me on.....

Anyways great game!!!

P.S. Utopia is not a place, but a people :)

PSN Hackers need to get a LIFE

I don't know WHY they are doing what they are doing, but it is SERIOUSLY uncool!!! I'm not sure if it is that group (anonymous) that is doing it to prove a point (WHAT POINT???) to sony or another group that is trying to cause chaos, but its not funny anymore. At first, trying to make sony look bad was annoying enough, but now this whole PSN debacle has gotten WAY oout of hand

At first I shared some of their views on being able to do whatever you want with what you own (I'm an android guy), but then I realised that something are a bit to connected and sensitive to mess around with (ala PS3 and xbox). But now with this whole PSN situation, I couldn't give a DAMN about them anymore! They just need to cut it out cos they are affecting their fellows GAMERS as much as SOny.....

WAKE UP HACKERS, you are hurting your OWN KIND!!!!!

3D 3D 3D 3D 3D ;D to all 3d vision gamers out there

YO guys, I'm keen to get a 3d setup going with my pc,although it'll only be at the end of the year, ince Christmas is then :D

1st of all I just wanna hear from any Gamespotters who have this tech and what they make of it? just impressions and stuff....

2nd of all, I just wanna know if my PC will have enough beef to tackle 3d gaming, my setup is

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.9GHz

Memory: 4096MB RAM

Hard Drive: 500GB Internal + 1.25 TB External

LG 21inch Widescreen

Sound Card: Onboard Sound Card

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

I'd obviously have to get a new screen, which would be this one http://3dvision-blog.com/acer-aspire-gd245hq-120hz-3d-vision-ready-monitor-review/ well unless something better comes out.......

Thanks guys :)



Should I make the Jump to 64bit!?!?!?!?

Hey Guys........recently I decided to finally play.....wait for it....HALF-LIFE2......crazy right!!!! hahaha anyways, I decided that I should probably try and find a graphics pack to make it look better because, after playing crysis etc, HL2 might look a lil dated.

Then I found FakeFactory and what that guy has done is INCREDIBLE!!!! So I'm keen to get his latest mod (CM10) but you need 64bit (although you can tweak it to run on 32 bit)

But that got me thinking, should I just upgrade to 64bit anyways to take advantage of its capabilities, with other future games and programs and all the rest...........here are my specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.9GHz

Memory: 4096MB RAM

Hard Drive: 500GB Internal + 1.25 TB External

Video Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275

Monitor: LG 21inch Widescreen

Sound Card: Onboard Sound Card

Speakers/Headphones: Creative 2.1

Keyboard: Microsoft Cheap Keyboard

Mouse: A4Tech X7 Mouse

Surface: A piece of White paper hahaha

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro Turbo

Computer Case: Advance X-Blade

I am thinking of maybe bumping up the ram if I do,

Thanks in advance for the help :)

To mass Effect or not to Mass Effect??

Hey guys, with the soon to be released Mass Effect 2 due out in 6 days :) :) :) I'm wondering if I should replay the 1st game to get my saves and import them into the second game. I played the first game once and it took me +/- 25 hours to finish it, I dunno if it'll be worth it, since not that much gets carried over to the new game??? what will you guys be doing??

Happy New Years Everyone :-) (A lil belated but better l8 than never ;-)

Hi Guys just wishing you all who read a happy new year......here to hoping everyone has a great year and that those New Years Resolutions are kept :-)..... I'm super stoked cos the Fifa world Cup is gonna be on my door step come this June and I've got a TICKET :D!!! wooohoo

Also here's to a potentially fantastic gaming year :-)!!! We've got a lot of awesome titles to look forward to, ME 2 being the 1 that jumps to my mind first. Lets hope that the games match the standards we've set and that no more devs go out of business!!!!

out of interest what are you guys looking forward to this year, for me its Mass Effect 2, Briink, FiFA 11 and SOOO MANY MORE!!! :-)

p.s. I know this is random but I've got a question about sound systems.....I'm redoing my room and would like to get some sweet surround sound going, I'm doing research on how to get the most out of the surround sound but just 1 thing is up in the air, should I get a set of PC 5.1 speakers such as the logitech G51 or just a cheap home theater system?? thanks in advance

Hey Xfire users..........

Hey guys, is anyone else having problems with lagging when Xfire is running.........I mean, i've been playing BAtman AA and it lags a LOT when Xfire is running......I closed Xfire and it ran BUTTER smooth, does anyone know how I can fix this, cos I wanna enjoy my games, and also track my hours and take sweet screenies......would be really appreciated!!!


P.S. I've got the latest drivers

Microsoft WHY haven't you done THIS!?!?!?!?

I was thinking about this the other day, it happened when we tried to use one my friends 360 Hard drive on ANOTHER 360 that we were using.......

and the when we tried to aaccess the save games on the hard drive, the 360 said something about not being able to do that and you need the original console that the game was installed on......

To me that seemed stupid, here we have perfectly legit games, hard-drives and 360s, and all we wanted to do was hook up a Friend 1's hard Drive to Friend 2's 360 and it won't let you access any game that were installed on there......I mean lets be real!!!

So I thought, here's an idea, imagine that they slotted a memory card intoyour CONTROLLER, (i mean, they are tiny and CHEAP CHEAP!!) so you can SEND your save games and stuff to your controller and access them on any 360, just like you can do with a PC and save game files....

Cos there are situations like mine where my mates all have 360s and 1 or 2 controllers and when we meet up, they just bring the controllers (and batteries) to whoevers place we're going to and bam!! Whatever you wanna access is literally in the palm of your hands!!! it would make life SOOOO much easier

Now I realise that MS still wanna sell hard drives to make more dough and the fact that they'd have to put some thought into tweaking the controller but come on, at least give us the option to use the HDDs on different 360s!!!1

Mini rant over......:P
