About Me

  1. Last week I went to go turn my PC on, and it didn't boot up. The lights on the fans flashed for a brief second, and even spun up a bit, but then immediately stopped. A couple of nights earlier my PC had restarted on its own while I was playing a game with a friend, which was weird, but I didn't think much of it at the time. I'm thinking my power supply unit has finally hit the end of its run as it's now 10 years old. Unfortunately I've been so busy the past week I haven't really been able to properly research and find a replacement. I could use some help and advice from the more knowledgeable PC gamers/builders here. I have found a handful of PSUs in quick searches, here https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-CP-9020139-NA-HX1000-Platinum-Performance/dp/B01N5NWKHH/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=1GMA133CEL1I0&keywords=power%2Bsupply%2B1000w&qid=1672783389&sprefix=Power%2Bsupply%2Caps%2C112&sr=8-3&th=1 https://www.amazon.ca/CORSAIR-SeriesTM-RM750x-Modular-Supply/dp/B08R5W27JS/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?adgrpid=64875205401&gclid=CjwKCAiAwc-dBhA7EiwAxPRylAgKRWDAsE4Fu-Ii_usImtz1tWqABkQV8npvI3mVMDWaIE9OkyG7GhoCeHoQAvD_BwE&hvadid=603063707918&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=9000812&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=10643367754987838968&hvtargid=kwd-305673614540&hydadcr=20831_13370553&keywords=seasonic+power+supply&qid=1672783263&sr=8-6 https://www.newegg.ca/seasonic-prime-ultra-gold-ssr-1000gd-1000w/p/N82E16817151199?Description=power supply unit 1000w&cm_re=power_supply unit 1000w-_-17-151-199-_-Product https://www.newegg.ca/asus-rog-thor-rog-thor-1000p2-gaming-1000-w/p/N82E16817320020?Description=power supply unit 1000w&cm_re=power_supply unit 1000w-_-17-320-020-_-Product I don't know if these are good ones or not (especially for the price), but I know at least in terms of popular brands I should be safe with Corsair, Asus, Seasonic, EVGA, or Gigabyte. What would you guys recommend, and what wattage should I look for since right now my current PSU is 750w and Silver rated? If I decide to upgrade in a couple of years when the RTX 50XX or even RTZ 60XX series are out, should I go up to 1000w, or would that probably be overkill and I'd be safe at 850w? Maybe even go up to 1200w? Obviously these would be guesses since we don't know what those future cards will be like, but based on current trajectory can we make an educated guess? Also while I would like to at least get a Gold rated PSU, is it worth it going to Platinum or even Titanium? Thanks for any help in advance, guys.
  2. If this has been posted I apologize and please delete. I only ran into this vid now and thought I'd share. It seems like it's only going to be released on PC for now but there's a possibility for PS5 and XSX release at some point. "Welcome to The Day Before, an open-world MMO survival set in a deadly, post-pandemic America overrun by flesh-hungry infected and survivors killing each other for food, weapons, and cars.

  3. This 'professional' end-of-the-world simulator is now available on Steam | PC Gamer WWW.PCGAMER.COM Nuclear War Simulator is a bit like Kerbal Space Program, only it's about nuclear annihilation and not technically a game. This video features a scenario where Russia initiates a "limited" nuclear scenario when they use a tactical nuke in Ukraine to deter the delivery of NATO weapons to Kyiv:
  4. Look sometimes I just want to talk about pc shit but it’s not quite worth a new thread or bumping an old one, so Ima do it here. Anyway, 7000x3d series release dates and prices are here. April 6th for the 7800x3d ($450 tho!) Feb 28th for the 7900 $600 and 7950 $700 though, I might just say fuck it and get the 7950 if the reviews are a decent uptick from 13900k gaming and if it looks like the ccd thing doesn’t matter much. Edit; I guess I could post this on the pc community board but I think we should just get rid of that

  9. The Oregon Trail is the first one I remember, along with Number Munchers. The first console like PC I had at home was the TI-99/4A with The Attack, Defender, Frogger, and I vaguely recall some other tank game but couldn't find it. The first desktop PC my mom got me for school was the Packard Bell 486 around 1994, I think. The TI-99/4A was limited in what you could do with it, so was it more of a console PC? It was a keyboard into which you inserted cartridges, and it had a tape deck.

  14. My OCD is so bad when it comes to games and stats. One thing in this game that bothers me is my overall wins and losses don't equal my total number of games played. I'm trying to at least get nice even numbers. Say 50 wins 50 loses 110-115-120 games played. Something like that. Now in the past I used to enter a game that was already in progress and let myself lose to add to games played but not wins or loses. Here I think the mechanic of not losing a game in progress is still broken. Even after they claimed to fix it. So far the only thing that works is if a game ends in a draw but that's hard to come by. Any other creative solutions as ridiculous as this might seem?

  16. So I played a bunch early on when there were no baracks. I left the game for a bit and just recently reinstalled and saw Stats have been added in but they are locked for me. Only played mutliplayer (No warzone) and this is the steam version. There a trick to unlocking this? Do you have a to be a certain level? I don't remember from past COD titles barracks/stats having to be unlocked.
  17. HL2 is basically my favourite game. It conforms with its predecessor in having a no break presentation that never infers above action, endearing itself to a core puzzle logic that was intrinsically tied to the gameplay(hello gargantua orbital blast), but on a personal note, invoking a distinct weird pulp science motif(without the sex, natch). HL2 grew in PR during development as a what would be THE showcase for physics. Earlier games like Max Payne did have realtime physics, but as window dressing largely distinct from the moment to moment gameplay. What HL2 delivered was the most cogent video game experience I've had so far. It begins with a thin palette. It's drab and mute, very boring, the aesthetic of formica. And between that is the 'technology', which seems awfully prone to prongs. From there the game begins by stacking boxes. Then you're counterbalancing a swing, and somewhere down the line you use buoys to lift an aquatic ramp to guide a fucking redneck jetski over a gate. Every puzzle in the game, especially playing with Dog, is a natural interaction with the world. There's no sliding tiles, some other fucking grid thing, arbitrary targets. The logic of this game is beyond match even today. In fact you don't even know who you're playing, but their importance seems entirely circumstantial. And that's important. The real kicker is what came from it. Dear Esther was a HL2 mod widely credited as one of most important walking sims. The first person puzzle logic would be a silent influence in future titles like The Talos Principle, The Witness, Portal lol This game has done a fuckton. But it loses points because Valve runs a store.

  21. I think I'm going to get one. I tend to move around a lot these days. I haven't even used my desktop in over a year because most of the time I simply don't have it available. It seems like every single gaming laptop has a bunch of people saying it sucks. Surely, they can't all be bad? I've seen most people complain that Alienware laptops have bad battery life, but like... When the fuck are you using that thing on a battery, honestly. A bunch also come with bloat ware, but that's no surprise. You just have to spend a day cleaning all that shit out, it's not a huge deal. A bunch of laptops I've noticed are also all still 1080p
