so we are moving from discussing the existence of these games to the stability of the table? 

 

:- Wait until the day your false God Gaben shut down Steam and revoke your "ownership,"  you will wish to have a table to cry on, biatch!!!

Where did mysterd get all this attitude from

I see the Steam version of MKX is only 3GB. What happened to the other 30GB? NetherRealm really needs to pay somebody else to port their games to PC. They are lucky that half the reviews are jokes or they would be 100% negative. At least MK9 is playable if you edit some files.

UK site with some decent discounts and a decent voucher. Problem is the MSRP for most games is higher than US MSRP so.. if the same game is available at GMG, you're better off waiting for it to go on sale there.

Top tip: UK sites will likely show the price as standard price +VAT, which is 20%. Yeah, sales tax. And completely unavoidable for all involved.

 

Shut up. We get free healthcare.

Everybody has a little bit of MysterD somewhere from within.

Once displayed by someone, they automatically join ToasterNet.

i read this and was like, maybe i'll play BL2 again. then i remembered i cheated and game myself all pearl weapons. basically, if it's a loot based game where the drops are handled locally and not by a server, i'm gonna cheat.

 

and btw neuro, we all saw you sneak in some DIII last night, you loot whore you :) ...

Console peasant talk here, but actually I put ToEE's combat at about even with D&D Tactics for PSP (which also uses a relatively faithful adaptation of 3.5). I like a few things better about ToEE's, and a few things better about D&DT's. Of course, D&DT's story is even less present than ToEE's, and whether it actually qualifies as a CRPG is questionable, since the gameplay is pretty much nothing but combat (and it's not on a PC).

As much as I'd like to go full rage mode here, I never played a PSP game in my life so I won't bash it. I can't imagine anything on a portable could be tactical or good but I will concede someone might have accidentally made one good portable game at some point in the history of mankind (purely by mistake, mind you).

Wow, someone poured a hell of a lot of sand into their underwear today to be so grumpy.  Even console peasants and mobile phones have "tactical" games that rank higher than some on PC/Steam (gasp).

 

Just off the top of my head.. mobile tactics games that are more fun than PC...

Disgaea 3 & 4

While it wasn't on mobile, Vandal Hearts for the PS1 was fantastic. One of the best Tactics games I've ever played. Great story and music as well.

Today we published my review for Gurumin: a Monstrous Adventure, which came out on Steam recently. Gurumin has previously been released in English on PSP, and comes from the developers of the Ys series. Please check out my review and the video review:

The standalone PC forum doesn't seem too active, so forgive me for posting this here.  I got royally boned by Digital Storm on a pre-build, so I'm going back to building my own PC, but I haven't done it a while.  I'm trying to balance power with price. This is what I'm thinking:

 

CPU: Intel I5-4690K

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Mobo: Asus Z97-A ATX LGA1150

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series (2 x 8 gb) (this is probably overkill)

Storage: Samsung 850 EVO Series 250 gb, Seagate Barracuda 3TB

GPU: Asus Radeon R9 290 4GB DirectCU II Video Card

Case: NZXT Source 530 ATX Full Tower Case

PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

 

What do you guys think?  I've always used NVIDIA cards, but the price vs. performance against a 970 card seems like it's not worth the extra $100+.

I've had terrible luck with seagate drives and stay away from them now.  I think you are right about the price vs performance for the 970 plus there is that "big deal" about the memory with the 970.

Looks great.  But as mentioned stay away from Seagate non SSD's.  Also I would save up more for a 980 personally.  AMD cards in my opinion are just obnoxious when it comes to drivers (but the 970 sucks for the memory "issues")

And some games are optimized exclusive for nvdia and/or hate AMD due to other reasons...

Thanks for the feedback, guys.  And yeah, my biggest worry about going for a non-NVIDIA card was the driver issues I've read about.  I would love to do the 980, but it's so hard to pull the trigger on a card that expensive. And yeah, I'll probably go WD for the non-SSD HDD as well, as I've heard some not great things about Seagate (just found that one on super sale, so I was tempted).  My two existing WD drives are 7 and 11 years old and are still kicking.

I've never run into any horrible driver issues with AMD cards.  Not saying they don't exist, just that they've never really affected me.  I've had AMD cards most of my life save for one Nvidia.  Nvidia card was fine too but then it started giving me issues after a year, but that can happen with any card.

I have been fine with my AMD too. But nvidia is better choice ATM. That's why I'm waiting for AMD's next GPUs before updating. (In hopes AMD releases competitive product and/or nvidia drops 970 price).

Rondo of Swords is a pretty bad game, so replace that with Fire Emblem and you've got a solid lineup. I loved FFT on PS1, haven't played it on PSP though. I played the other handheld versions, but their stories aren't as epic as the original. Disgaea, while different at first, gets pretty boring after a while. I think that's a problem that most TRPG games face, especially when battles last for hours.

I think this applies to you two except for the tower:

 

Here are a couple of changes to look at and research: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fqdZD3 (all prices from Amazon)

You are getting an overclocked processor so I would go for a better board and MSI Z97-GAMING 5 is better for overclocking according to Overclock3d. I switched out your psu for an EVGA 750 G2 because it has the best score from JonnyGuru gave it 9.8 and it is fully modular so you only use the wires you need. Two optional switches is the case for a mid tower same brand just one step up to the 300R personally I would go for a full tower but some will say it is over kill even though I filled all slots through small upgrades and easier to get to things and cable management and gpu here is an article comparing gtx 970 to amd 290 less heat, noise and wattage for nvidia and better fps overall.

What's the difference between the two mobos aside from OC?  I've always used Asus and never had any problems, hence my choice here.  Plus, I  hear the BIOS on this one is super easy to use, which I like because I tend to overthink things.

I love that they're giving everyone a chance to buy it (at a discount no less) before yanking out of the store. I just wonder why they'd pull the game?
