Quick Question for you guys.  I finally got a beefy gaming rig to play some kickass PC games, and ive been itching to play a kick ass Zombie game, Ive heard best 3 to look into would be DayZ, H1Z1, or Killing Floor 2, any of you guys played any of following or recommend any of them? or another really good zombie game? thanks

 

Killing Floor 2 is pretty good, but it doesn't have any zombies in it. If that doesn't matter, I'd definitely recommend it.

Meh, for all intents and purposes they're zombies.

Ha nice to know, and Idk Ive watched some videos of Killing Floor 2 and it looks pretty badass but ive heard that it hasnt been updated in months which seems kind of werid for a game in early access,

No worries there. It came out in late April and we've already got a map and several smaller updates. The developers are trustworthy and very transparent about what they are doing and what to expect. There should be a new update this month that adds two new character classes and another map. It's built on Unreal Engine 3, so people are also already busy building new custom maps for the game.

 

The original Killing Floor started with like 5 maps and ended up with more than 20, new classes, new weapons, holiday events... all for free. They typically only sell cosmetic stuff or curated weapon packs from the community.

I'm glad I forgot to go back to the Humble Store sale this weekend. I don't know why, but I really want to fakeybro Dragon Ball Xenoverse. I must stay strong! *goes to pre-order FF Type-0*

 

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is currently $30.99 under GreenManGaming's VIP section.  Not the lowest it's ever been, but still much cheaper than the $59.99 MSRP.  Don't know if it's any good, but there you go.

{Funcom up for sale}

Spoiler

:'(

Bleh!! I hope whomever buys them keep TSW + Age of Conan going online.

Or adds an offline mode, before they pull the damn plug.

 

I believe Funcom still holds TLJ Franchise - I wonder what the hell would happen to that.

I wonder if TLJ will get sold off separately or it'll go w/ the sale of Funcom.

I'd really like to see Red Thread buy the license, since that's where Ragnar Tornquist went (TLJ's creator), in the first place.

Hopefully, whomever get TLJ Franchise - I'd guess the deal w/ Red Thread to use the license remain & they can finish-up Dreamfall Chapters.

No wonder Dreamfall has been getting such terrible sales on Steam recently.  They needed every penny they could get.

Dragonfall is great. Shadowrun Returns isn't quite as good, but I still liked it a lot. I recommend them both, but if you're only getting one - get Dragonfall.

I haven't played Boston Lockdown and it's by a different team.. so I can't say.

This. Just get Dragonfall. Many more character interactions and sidequests. It's why the new game is dropping in two weeks. Catch the first (Returns) in the inevitable $1 tier bundle it will be in around that time.

I'd say more so than anything, Funcom needed the sales from their MMO's - b/c that's what the hell they've really were invested in, $-wise of late. Especially w/ Age of Conan + TSW.

 

Also...I don't think we really know how much of a cut Funcom takes from Red Thread's sales on Dreamfall Chapters, though. Red Thread's independent; Funcom doesn't own them.

Sapphire Tri-X 290x 4GB VRAM

 

Edit: This card specifically

 

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814202145

You said Tri-X, so I assume you are running three.  I semi-recently upgraded to an r9 295X2.  I'm finding the whole multi GPU thing to be kind of a pain in the ass.  What's your experience with the drivers and games support for multi-GPU?  

 

In some games, I certainly have really good performance, but others (Skyrim in particular) it's abysmal.

Tri doesn't mean it is running three cores, it is called like that because is has the sapphire tri-x cooling
technology (triple-fan design).

On the other hand your r9 295X2 is on the top of the Graphics Card Hierarchy from the AMD side.

Thanks for the correction!  I got the card on a really good deal and the price/performance (on paper) had it looking better than the Titan X.  In retrospect, I'm not sure crossfire is worth the hassle.

I think that was pretty much implied with the tweet Tomasety posted yesterday about their whole development group going tits up.

So what's the consensus from the nerds of that card for $165?  It's been as cheap as $150 recently.  Good bang for buck?

I ran the slightly lower clocked version of that card in my HTPC and just threw it in a build for someone else the other day. It's a decent midrange card capable of handling most games at 1080 with high to very high settings. I wouldn't recommend it if attempting 1440+. Aside from the cooler making unplugging the PCI-E power connectors kind of annoying due to the proximity of the fins to the release clips on the plugs, no complaints really.

They claim it's a Double D, but with only 3M VRAMs, that's more like a C cup.  For most folks that's considered "adequate".  YMMV.

For that price (150$) I wouldn't think twice. Great price for that card.

R9 280 is in the range between GTX 760 and GTX 770. Compared to a GTX 960 2GB (you won't need more VRAM unless you are planning to move into the 1440p) it is a better choice also and more if you can get it for $150.

You guys are such amateurs. I'm running three Titan Zs for 36GB VRAM, and I've got a wind farm to power them.

Shocking news:  Visual Concepts & 2K actually released an update that makes NBA 2K15 compatible with Windows 10.  Pretty sure all those nasty things I said about their mothers was the catalyst they required.  Hooray for angry internet mob mentality!

Well, I think my monitor isn't 1080p so that shouldn't be an issue.  Is there another card you'd recommend more in the $150 range?  I'm willing to do console tricks if necessary and buy cereal to bring the price down.

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure anything 4GB is out of my price range, so I'll just have to MysterD this one and go with something adequate.
