It isn't shady, it is business.

240GB SSD simply isn't enough for games :(

Even 500GB isn't enough. Certain games are just massive. I do like to keep some installed since I play a few still.  I had to delete others that I rarely start up. :(

@All the Tales fans on CAG...

 

MysterD has never played any of them. 

So, is Zestiria a fine place to start in this series? 

 

Are any of the (non-numbered sequels) related to each other in terms of character, stories, game-world/universe, and any things of that sort?

 

Also, which ones are probably the best ones in this Tales Of series...?

I think overall most agreed Symphonia and Vesperia are the best in the series. I personally do like Graces f only because of the battle system. I felt like it's the best of all and most fluid when inputting moves. But characters and story isn't likable.

All of them are pretty much standalone titles aside from those 2 sequel games.

To hell with Remedy for not giving a tech test of Titanfall 2 on PC.

Only took me another couple of hours to finish Starbound.  Last two bosses... arguably easier/more tedious than the rest.  Don't waste money on this game.

 

I honestly cannot comprehend why it took them two+ years to arguably make the game worse than it was when I played it shortly after it first hit Steam.  Torchlight 1 had a better narrative.  And better bosses, too.

Too late. Most owners of Terraria already own Starbound.

I remember the beta was at least going to be done by that same year. The only issues I see them having was on the performance side of things from what I recall back then. They kept the game in EA this long just to milk it and patch things up slowly.

Fuck Hello Games.

 

No Man's Sky went "Gold" and now it gets pushed back 3 more days.  

Only 3 days. Is the world going to end soon or something?

I've had an LG that's lasted like... six or so years.  No idea if they even make monitors anymore.

They still do. Recently I had to replaced my monitor and went with the LG 29" Ultrawide. Wider FOV is a sight of beauty for FPS and Racing games.

If anyone had the budget, Dell is the way to go, and their warranty service on premium panels are great.  If not, the next tier should be LG, Samsung, BenQ, or ASUS.

But seriously, why is downsampling even a thing?  I'm going to buy a sports car and never go over 25MPH?  Or worst yet, let's buy a sports car and put bicycle tires on it.  That sounds like a great use of money.  I'm pretty sure he said his eyesight wasn't that great so 1000 frames per second would probably be wasted there.  

No. Downsampling is like another form of AA.  A very effective/accurate one at that. Just need a high end card if you're planning to play newer titles instead of using FXAA crap. Many games from like 2013 and earlier, the GTX 970 can handle those pretty well at 2K-4K res, downsampled to 1080p.

Hey guys, I could use a bit of input.

I'm leaning towards trading the 1070 to my friend.

Any thoughts?
