Lol, don't worry, I'm doing comedy outrage there.

I think my PC spec is better than the one you suggested (i5 vs i3, 6GB 1060 vs 3GB and mine has an SSD installed) but your monitor's better than mine.

Yeah, I just think its overkill for her use case. And a 1440p monitor will be more beneficial imo.

For running Guild Wards 2, for sure. It depends what else she wants to play though as Grim's requirement of 'things from Steam' could mean anything really. Also: future proofing.

Which is exactly what it is. Neither of you could be arsed to even click a link?

I did! That was the "joke".

The criteria have shifted, however. Now it's a PC, monitor, headset, KB+M, and speakers :roll:

They don't let you future-proof anymore.

There is this guy on youtube (who sounds a lot like Chinny) who likes to pair up old hardware with new and see how it performs.



Surprisingly good performance from a more than decade old cpu when paired with a modern GFX

Oh god

Keyboard: £4.97 http://www.ebuyer.com/202780-xenta-blac ... ut-kb-6106
Mouse: £5.98 http://www.ebuyer.com/544982-logitech-b ... 910-003357
Headset: £16.97 http://www.ebuyer.com/630114-element-ga ... -esab-90y1
Speakers: £30.99 http://www.ebuyer.com/222457-logitech-z ... 980-000447

Should still be within budget.

It looks pretty good, but It looks like you're playing a gorilla, gorillas don't behave like that, and it makes me sad when they are portrayed as violent creatures.

Great trailer. Fuck knows what it's about. Shooting people in the face and screaming fuck you, I assume.

A Twitter friend of mine has just released her first ever game, Yorkshire Gubbins, an anthology of one-hour point and click adventures set in --yes, you guessed it -- Yorkshire. Check it out on Steam!

Bought. Looks like my cup o'tea, and always happy to support an indie, even if it makes me hellishly jealous.

Taking issue with her claim that it's the first video game to be set in Yorkshire though.

I just started playing 64.0 and oh man is it addictive and yet infuriating.

I started playing Overlord 2 at the weekend. It's a delight.

It fixes many of the issues with the first one, such as game-breaking glitches where you'd lose your minions uncontrollably. It also has a mini map.

It's still glitchy mind, but it doesn't penalise you for the glitchiness. Your minion gets stuck behind a log? He'll magically come back to you.

I paint a rather negative picture, but I don't mean to. It's just that it's a bloody funny, charming game with more character than most of this year's AAA games combined, so there's much to enjoy if you can get past the slightly borked physics and occasionally noggin-busting camera.

I'm enjoying kitting out my dark tower with new bits of tech and accouterments, it's a gnarly place to hang out.

I bought Rimworld.

First colony, things were going quite well, we had food, we have heat, winter clothes were getting made in the build up to winter. A pack of capybaras came though the camp so I decided to hunt them for a bit more food to last the winter, they ended up wiping out the whole colony as what looked like about 10 was actually about 30 manhunting giant rodents.

Colony the second, things started out ok. We managed to recruit a few prisoners we had captured, base was expanding, mining was happening, resources were good. However, one horrible accident lead to the downfall of the colony. Whilst mining some steel, the roof collapsed killing our hunter instantly, this would be the start of the end. Whilst out picking up stuff from a dropship, a timberwolf went mental and took out the one colonist that couldn't fight. Whilst trying to save them another got downed. Shortly after this we were raided, 2 colonists caught infections which would later turn out to be fatal due to an ever decreasing supply of medicine, winter hit, cold weather caused several colonists to catch frostbite, food resources were depleted due to half the colony being bed ridden. More raids kept happening and eventually everyone died from a mixture of the cold, lack of food and meds.

10/10 Would recommend.

The Forest has left dirty early access.

I had a whole bunch of scary fun playing with a MrDave and the occasional Myp. It’s a base building knob about game on a tropical island but it has a surprisingly deep and long (fnaar fnaar) horror-esq campaign that can be played coop or on your lonesome.

I am Sat and I highly recommend this game.

Plus on 22 May it’s going to have VR support. Wowwee
