I have to be honest, it's been almost 10 years since I saw a CPU cooler that didn't come with pre applied thermal paste. Now maybe scraping it off and applying different shit is better but I'm doubtful. And applying more is just adding more insulation. Thermal paste exists just to go into the tiniest cracks between the top of the CPU and bottom of the cooler and ensure there are no gaps. I mean in practice it doesn't work like that. It's important but it's probably needless.

I dunno about noctua. I'm only running a skylake i5 and a hyper evo 212 is more than enough to never spin up above minimum speed.

>it's important but probably needless
is to say, make sure you have thermal paste, but if it's already on the cooler you're good to go. It's sticky grey gunk.

It's important you have it, but you probably don't need to buy it.

Yes and no. The barrier to entry will be higher ($$$), and they will have to provide tax IDs and such like real companies. That means no more Russians, no more Chinese shovelware. Prices will also be a la carte, invalidating the business model of polluters like BMC. Finally, the secondary market of shovelware keys for shovelware greenlight votes, is DOA.
The main issue is that rich shit purveyors (Americans, etc) won't have much of an issue with the new economic hit, unless they set it to the maximum proposed amount, which is $5000.

It isn't very easy on the eyes, it took me a while to make sense of what I was seeing when I began playing, but there really isn't anything quite like it once your familiar with it. It makes more sense if you think of what graphics looked like in 94 and frankly a little earlier because it wasn't exactly cutting edge looking when it released either. The uncanniness of the visuals though, contributes dividends to the experience IMO, and just the whole vibe and gameplay is great.

SS2 is a masterpiece, but there needs to be more love for what its predecessor achieved

if you extract the textures from knuckles chaotix (or maybe sonic cd?) you get this creepy ass mario here. I have no idea why it's there with all the regular textures for level backgrounds and shit. OP shouldn't put it on his wall but I felt like sharing it.

of course it's messy and glitchy. it's an old low res cyberpunk game, that's kinda the aesthetic they were going for. it's garish and colorful and I love it. if you like ss2, or really any sort of cyberpunk, sci fi horror, or general survival horror experience, you should give ss1 a shot. it's jam packed with atmosphere and the visual style only helps it. it's also nice just to see where so many other games took inspiration.

Considering that it's a DOS FPS from 1994, Shock 1 looks as good as it possibly can when upscaled to modern resolutions. I mean, do you play SNES games in HD vision and complain that you can see the pixels? When the game's in motion it's even less noticeable:

The main thing that really doesn't hold up are the blurry low-frame-animation enemy sprites, but other than that I find the game's visual aesthetic to still be highly appealing. It's a DOS cyberpunk game and looks exactly the way a DOS cyberpunk game should.

>True 3D environments where you can look up and down without distortion
>Real-time dynamic lighting engine
>Physics engine with momentum calculation, bouncing objects and variable gravity
>Transparent 3D objects
>Destructible objects
>In 1994, aka the same year Doom 2 came out

Other games wouldn't have shit like this for years. It was the Crysis of DOS games. If you like System Shock 2 there's no reason you shouldn't play the original, especially now that it's got the Enhanced Edition re-release. I prefer the original, even.

Speaking of 1994 DOS games way ahead of their time, I brought it up earlier ITT, but Quarantine. It's a first person driving / open world / car combat / taxi game that takes place in a cyberpunk dystopian city, and for its time it's absolutely jaw dropping. It's even complete with traffic and a large number of pedestrians.

When I say open world, I mean open world. Aside from its visuals and the technical limitations of the time, there really isn't that much separating it from modern open world games. The city itself is huge and varied, albeit flat, and it even has a map system you can set waypoints on. In a DOS game from 1994. A good 3 years before the first Grand Theft Auto, and even then, that was top-down while this had a huge 3D world to explore.

We really wouldn't see anything like this again until something like Driver, or Urban Chaos, at least a good 5 years later. And even then, Quarantine was larger in scope and arguably more influential than either of those.

It goes without saying that, being an open world game from 1994, it hasn't aged well visually. I also don't think its gameplay structure is that great, although running pedestrians down and watching giant blood splatters hit your windshield, along with blowing up vehicles with a number of different weapons, are as satisfying as they ever were. But all of that said it does have an incredible sense of atmosphere, and much like System Shock, when you consider what it was doing for the time it was released, how can you really complain?

In terms of size, it's definitely no Daggerfall or anything, but it is a much more focused experience that honestly isn't nearly as jarring to go back to as it probably should be.

On RE4 being action horror, what kept RE4 a good RESIDENT EVIL game was that there were enough slow, suspenseful parts in the game to keep it spooky where as 5 and 6 were a constant stream of action, never giving you a moment to calm down and build up fright. 6 especially with Leon's melee never leaving you feel defenseless and the god damn mecha's in Wesker's son's campaign.

My favourite game series is getting a worthy sequel. No real world locations, no lame aiming system, no lame free to play fuel balongey, just good ole air combat in Strange-real.

I for one, am pumped for Ace Combat 7, and got some pretty serious nostaligia from the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KrbOAeQckw

What was your favourite Ace Combat game, plane or mission? I'd have to say mine was Unsung War, any Sukhoi, and the Anea Landing mission from 6. Lemme know, lets get some Aces in here.

I feel like that would make me motion sick. But I was thinking of emulating the psp games from this series soon. Psp emulation is great even if you have low end hardware. I'm hoping that the whole series gets ported to pc eventually (at least mainline entries). Will report back if they emulate well (90 plus percent of the psp catalog emulates well).

"I want to show PC users Final Fantasy XV running on high-end machines."

Tabata told Famitsu (translated by Gematsu), "I'd like to release the game on PC as a technical attempt. I want to show PC users Final Fantasy XV running on high-end machines."

He went on to say that he and the developer, Square Enix, would like to explore the possibility of "playing with PC-exclusive features like making your own quests and enjoying the world using things like mods."

Elsewhere in the Famitsu interview, Tabata says there are currently no plans to expand the world, despite videos online suggesting new areas could come to the game.

"Those videos made use of glitches," the Final Fantasy veteran said. "There is a large map being used on the train route in the second half of the game. Since that area isn't completely made, opening it up as an area you can freely traverse is difficult as is.

"We might remake playable areas in future expansions, but since that would take a year, it is not currently in our plans. For argument's sake, if we were to prepare new fields, Insomnia would also be a candidate, but that also would take a year's worth of work."

Final Fantasy XV launched in November 2016, but only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In March last year, Tabata said he was "aware of the big call for a PC version," but stated that no such port was in development at the time. Previous Final Fantasy games have come to PC--XII, IX, and XIV Online: A Realm Reborn are all on Steam, for example.

>tfw gameplay wise Crisis Core is one of the best Final Fantasy games

Sure, you can argue that its story is fanfic levels of garbage, and for all intents and purposes it is. But as a fun fucking game to play, Crisis Core is fine. Mechanically I think it does things perfectly well.

I know people don't like the slot system thing which isn't actually random, but considering the least random moments it offers serves to further the story, I think it was a clever enough way for the designers to tie that mechanic in.

But hey, you can keep being cynical about it. I won't stop you.

Crisis Core's plot was scattered and shallow, and it relied entirely on Zack's bit at Nibelheim, but that was executed poorly too. I liked the new sephiroth clones admitedly, but the combat was bland and mindless. Overall it was a terrible game with appealing cutscenes. Would have made a better movie imo

For decades Zelda in terms of plot progression never seems to leave its creatively bankrupt box of ideas. Every game usually boils down to either

>Ganon is back stab that fucker to death
>A follower/reincarnation of Ganon's essence is trying to resurrect its perfect form go stab that fucker to death

Even Breathe of the Wild with its Open World mechanic its still just gonna boil down to this again which baffles me into believing this shit will sell a million copies. Don't even pretend that this game is incapable of leaving its world because we've seen this game transition from Wooden Boats to Steam Power in terms of both tug boats and fucking trains.

When are we going to slowly start introducing the idea of fire arms into the zelda universe? I'm not saying give Link a gun i'm saying have a villain whose montra is to make Swords seem obsolete in the world of Hyrule by introducing Rifles and Gattling Guns so firearms you'd normally see from the years 1860 namely.

C'mon it wouldn't be that bad of any idea

Aonuma explicitly said the CD-I games are non-canon.

With respect to narrative, sure it's always pretty standard (barring Majora's Mask, that game is still some next level narrative brilliance), but the Hero's Journey is a universal monomyth that pretty much everyone can identify with regardless of language barrier or culture, which is one of the main reasons the franchise is hugely popular almost everywhere. Zelda has always been more about capturing a whimsical sense of adventure anyway, with the cookie cutter narrative serving more or less as window dressing to the cool environments and memorable characters who are the real stars of the universe. Also mechanically, Zelda pretty consistently mixes things up with at least every other iteration, especially since Skyward (which I didn't really care for, but have to admit was pretty unique). Hyrule Warriors was a legit great idea for a spin-off, Link Between Worlds mixed things up with non-linear dungeon progression, and Breath of the Wild looks to be the biggest shakeup the franchise has seen since OoT's 3D transition. I haven't looked forward to a Zelda this much since I pre-ordered a gold OoT cartridge with rolls of quarters when I was 10.

>If you're talking about gameplay, I always figured it's because Zelda 2 deviated from the path early on, and was less well received.

This is true, but the funny thing about it is that modern Zelda games have more in common with Zelda 2 than they do the original game. The talking to people, visiting towns, upgrading your magic, etc. I guess it could even be argued that most 3D Zelda combat takes some philosophies from Zelda 2. Especially with enemies like Stalfos or the Iron Knuckles.

Zelda 2 may not be a fondly remembered game by a lot of people, but I think it's more influential than those people believe. I also think it's a great game, but hey what do I know.

Which of the professional Youtube Let's Players have the worst actual skills?
I've been watching Tetraninja play Alien: Isolation and he is terrible, he just runs everywhere, never hides, never uses his gadgets, and keeps blindly running up to enemies and dying. He basically only progresses by save scumming, and he keeps missing save points.
I gave up on his Mad Max: Fury Road playthrough, when he just kept driving off cliffs and dying.
I mean, that is a forgiving game in many ways, you can't flip the car and you can go over most obstacles by hitting the boost, and you can put fires out by getting out of the car. Dying by crashing is an accomplishment in itself.

But I've heard that DarkSydePhil is even worse. Who is the GOAT out of the suckers who play games for a living, without playing particularly well?

Unitlost deserve a mention for their complete and utter capitulation in XCom 2, but usually they're pretty good, having finished the first game.

Uh, excuse me, I was actually bandwagoning. Big difference. Please get your facts straight next time.

On topic, the only people I watch play video games anymore are Giant Bomb, and even then its mostly as background noise. Sometimes their schticks get a little tiresome but I can generally tolerate them a lot more than most "video game personalities." That Shenmue playthrough was pretty great.

Gavin is a strange one, he's not exactly dumb, considering he's one of the best slow motion photographers in the business, but he definitely has some issues, like the way he doesn't really react to anything the other players say, and seeming to be completely blind to the HUD. And absolutely no learning curve when it comes to cactus.

Someone in youtube comments said he seems to react to words, but not sentences? Or something like that.

He may have some legit brain issues, he once mentioned forgetting how to read and write, and his teammates told him "Dude, that's a stroke! You had a stroke!" and forced him to see a doctor.
He also has some kind of synaesthesia where he can taste, feel and smell things if you describe them to him, and will immediately vomit, like RIGHT THERE, if you talk about wet bread.

So I guess two weaknesses, cactus and wet bread.

lol so his whole bit is being at a stroke victim people laugh at for sucking at video games due to said stroke? has he ever stroked out during a stream? guess you need some way to stand out against all the other lets players out there.

Dude, did you see their new video? Some "fan" sent their videos of burning shit, smashing holes through doors, blowing up electronics and other destructive behaviour in their studio home to their landlord, and now they got kicked out.

What the fuck dude. RIP the House.

Since I am the aforementioned consumer whore who had preordered it, I have played it quite a bit. I got through the tutorial level and into the first level that was in the Beta or alpha or whatever and I am enjoying it thoroughly. I love the loot system, the stamina mechanics, the stance changing, and the light storytelling feel it has going for it. Feels like a true return to form for Team Ninja, and I really think it's worth full price.
