Does anyone know any good local multiplayer games? At this point I kind of feel like I know about every one that exists.

Gang Beasts, for PC--great for couch multiplayer. There's internet multiplayer too but it's in beta and kinda wonky at the moment.

Re: Video games!

That looks pretty good. $20 seems a little steep though, especially for an early access title.

Re: Video games!

Never pay full price on Steam. Put it in your wishlist and wait a bit. Eventually it'll go on sale.

Re: Video games!

Just looked at my library and I'm kinda sad because of all the games I haven't played. Now I feel like I should probably at least give all of them a try before I go buying even more games.

Re: Video games!

I am now much closer to having a formidable gaming rig, and already I'm running out of HDD space from ahem acquiring games I'm not gonna be able to play until at least three more paychecks for the GPU.


I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those rap guys' girlfriends.

I loved building my gaming rig. I wish I could do it again.

What GPU are you thinking about?

Oh, this was a sweet, sweet suffering building this thing. Sadly, it's only half-done due to low funds.

The GPU I'm talking about is none other than the ZOTAC GTX1080 Mini. Mini because I made some dumb choices regarding AiO radiator placement in a micro-ATX case. It's certainly not the most expensive thing I could've gone with, but a man's gotta pay bills and eat so it still stings.

That's a great card. I hear wonders about the 1080 series (I have a 980Ti myself).

Re: Video games!

Probably going to go AMD whenever Vega is released. Never had an AMD GPU or CPU before, I think my next PC (whenever that is) will be a 100% AMD build. They've been killing it lately and I really really like what they've been doing with open sourcing their drivers and kickstarting Vulkan and the whole GPU Open thing and really everything.

After several terrible ATI/AMD graphics experiences over the years, all I can tell you is, good luck, Beef Swift, good luck.

I just did a new all AMD build last month (Ryzen 7 1700X and R9 280X) and before that I was using one of the A8 APUs (did that build 5 years ago). Very happy with the build and kicking ass.

"ATI"? How long ago was this? As far as I can tell they're really turning around right now.

Oh, the problems have been a long time present, since my first computers. First, I could barely play games at all. Then I could play games but the glitches were terrible. Then I couldn't watch anything on my TV tuner card because of deinterlacing issues. Then I had bluescreen crashing issues and shader problems. After that I switched to nVidia for my desktops and had no such trouble on them, but the AMD problems never stopped for me really, had the drivers for my AiO's Radeon HD6450 crash just this morning. Recoverably, this time, but two years ago, they'd hardlock my PC when anything accelerated, like a video or Firefox or Photoshop, would try something fancy.

So you can see why I'm loath to trust them, even if they seem to be "turning around" as you said.

Edit:

Ooh, forgot to mention two more: our work computers with AMD cards will occasionally crash spectacularly when watching online streaming video such as Twitch. How spectacularly? Garbage on the screen, hardlock. Next, my friend's Radeon would BSOD while playing GTA4 for longer than 15 minutes with the newest drivers at the time, while my GTX8800 could play it fine with the drivers that came on the CD.

Edit:

I lied, one more. The W10 Facebook Messenger app occasionally can't properly play video on my AiO, it sometimes shows scrambled satellite television-looking garbage.

Re: Video games!

I've barely heard of anything mentioned to this point, and my PC is a dinosaur.  But it eats Unreal Tournament for breakfast, and that's good enough for me.

That's exactly what I'm currently doing. Trying each game in my library out :) It's kinda hard to not get too sucked into each one game and move on to the next, but it's rewarding, so much discovery!

Re: Video games!

Late update on my end, I've finished my beastly gaming rig and made the huge mistake of giving Steam a try.

Several rock-bottom-price sales later, I'm set for games until the heat death of the universe.
