Really?

How many members on here still play games on desktop PCs? What are people playing? I just finished building a good quad-core and am interested in testing it out, but haven’t had time to see what games are taking the top ranks lately.

Think I might shell out for a PS3 also, was split between that and an Xbox, but the Blue-Ray function helped the PS3 get the edge. Thoughts?

Also, here’s the link for the Geek S**T E3 2010 Edition:

Jesus man, I know I ripped on you for A-team, but seriously? You are making this too easy.

WestCoast, have you played Mass Effect 2 yet?

How about them expendables?

I assume you own the classics like TF2 and CS:S (TF2 just gets more and more fun as they update, I found).

The best stuff out now is deff. Mass Effect 2 (if you’re into that) and BF: Bad Company 2. I think Crysis 2 is due soon, so expect to either A) feel like your rig is outdated or B) feel like its from the future.

No I haven’t. Is there a ME3 in the pipeline, or would it be worth picking up now?

Yea I’ve played those classics, and would probably say that CS, HL, Unreal Tournament, Red Alert, and Star Craft were my favorites, but since then I haven’t really delved into anything with college and now work.

Your the second to mention ME2 so I’ll for sure look into it, have they announced a ME3 at E3 this year? I’ll look into Crysis 2 also. Thanks for the suggestions, keep 'em rolling, I want to put my comp to the test since uploading pictures to T-Nation is pretty much the hardest thing its had to do since I finished it.

Well excuse the hell out of me for diversifying my bonds! You can watch Eclipse when it comes out.

It’s all about Toy Story 3 and The Last Airbender.

If you want some serious ass-kicking fun, get Prototype somehow. Came out last year around this time, but these days graphics don’t change that fast anymore. It looked AMAZING on a E6400, so if you have a quad all the better. Basically you’re a mutant with the ability to run up anything, double jump, turn your fists into gigantic swords, hammers, etc. Additionally, you can jump-kick helicopters and have them explode. Free-running all over NYC, its fantastic. With your hardware, maxing it out will be a walk in the park - I did it on 4gb and an 8800GTS.

edit: Additionally, you can pick up a tank and throw it at a helicopter. And have them both explode. (or visa versa… if you use the crazy hook hands… but I digress.)

Just upgraded my gaming rig last month. I just finished Batman:Arkham asylum. Just started Borderlands (I know they’re old games, but my old PC couldn’t handle them). Everyone says Mass Effect is great, but you should play the first game before the second. Left 4 Dead and its sequel are pretty sweet. I still want to try Prototype sometime.

I actually played Left 4 Dead and didn’t really like it, the mass killing of zombies just didn’t really do it for me. I prefer something more technical/cerebral. What are the thoughts on Fallout 3?

Ha no I didn’t. I just lost interest after the 400th zombie that I killed. I know some people loved it, but I just couldn’t get into it. As stated before, I would prefer something more technical/cerebral, something that makes you think, not just mow down countless extremely well rendered zombies.

Shenanigans! You played the game on easy and had the A.I. as teammates. You disgust me.

Ha again no, I actually spent most of my time online, playing the mode where you are paired up with around 4 other people and attempt to survive for as long as possible. I gave it time, as I shelled out $50 for the game, but it just didn’t do it for me. It was a well designed game with great graphics, it just didn’t have lasting appeal for me.

AND DON’T EVER CALL SHENANIGANS ON ME AGAIN, EVER!

did you play Fallout 3 or ME2 Wol? what are some of your other favorites that you think I’d enjoy.

Obviously not Wol, but I HIGHLY suggest playing Mass Effect 1 and 2. One will take you about 15 hours, two about the same.

Fallout 3 was amazing and there’s another one out in Oct of this year, based on the same game engine but totally different story.
