[SE++ PC Gaming] Land of Patches

edited February 2008 in Social Entropy++
So, there's threads for all the other gaming avenues, all the consoles, but none for PC?

Since PC gaming is the only kind of gaming I'm into, here's the SE++ chat thread for PC gaming, wherein you can mention all the tiny little things about your games that you love, that are interesting to mention, but which you can't be bothered putting in the effort to make a gigantic OP in G&T just to make that one little observation.

Having just gotten a new computer, I'm discovering a lot of games that most of you probably found, enjoyed, and discarded many an age ago, including Doom 3, F.E.A.R., Stalker, and DX:IW (i know, i feel dirty too).

I'll start off with something i noticed about Doom 3.

Has anyone noticed how Doom 3 can be two completely different games, simply by the presence or absence of headphones/decent surround sound speakers?

When I play Doom 3 with my headphones on, with the volume cranked up, every tiny little zombie that appears scares the ever-living SHIT out of me! When I take the headphones off and play without sound, it becomes a pretty mindless shooter, where I am transformed into a minor deity.

So much of the atmosphere in that game is created by sound.

Yay contributions, go!

    Seriously though they badly need a hero purge

    I wish they would make a -retardedhero mode so we could just have teams full of evokers and gamblers.

    I liked pit lord, I didn't mind Huskar, but when they took out aegis for buying, this pissed me off too I would still have bought the damn thing if it was only armour and magic resist. It was still damn useful in a hell of a lot of builds. I never really had problems with any of the Heros, just all the new crap they kept adding made me have to keep adjusting and it just started to piss me off. I like the recent rework of Naix, but I just can't be asked playing.

    Like...non-custom maps.

    They just fuckin shit me.

    The game is pretty much Starcraft, except SHIT. If I want to play an Blizzard RTS I play Starcraft, its better in every way than Warcraft 3.

    Except for DotA which is up to 6.49b now, FYI.

    If we play the old versions, I am going Sven. And I will rape you all

    oh wait you thought I was making fun of you up there?

    I wasn't. WCIII, along with San Andreas and the third disc of Diablo 2, is one of those discs that continues to elude me. Maybe I loaned it out at some point.

    my laptop is better at everything than my pc but my laptop is two and a half years old and that is why my pc has not been used in a long time
    i tried to take the lcd screen from it and plug it into my laptop but it turns out its broken
    somehow

    so no pc games here
    halflife 2 runs alright but i cant be bothered getting it again because i dont really have any space left (out of 850gb)

    ive had thoughts of getting a new pc for games but itd be cheaper to get an xbox360

    i am also considering one of them asus Eees
    i guess thats unrelated though

    God I hate that song, but I wish we had LANs as big as that here, ones that weren't organised like months in advance and BYO PC, but rather just go there play some games. Been a while since I've been to a good LAN centre. My friends never wanted to play with the other people there though, only amongst ourselves, which sometimes sucked pretty hard. They're afraid of people in short.

    Yeah. The latest version (1.20) has been languishing in Development Hell. In this instance Development Hell refers to me being lazy and having other shit to do.

    I've actually almost finished the next version, but my dummyhead IRL friends all have various shit that prevents them from testing with me, so I've just delayed putting it off for a while. I imagine I may actually get back into the saddle during December when I go on break and everyone's home.
