So about 2 months ago when discussing tactics during the starting phase with my dota2 teammates on how we were going to take the game within 30 minutes, my new kitten suddenly decides to jump up on my computer desk, knock over a half full bottle of water, which yes, you guessed it, toppled off the desk, landed upside down on the horizontal topside exhaust fan of my gaming rig, and half a litre of fresh, pure cold ice water rained down onto my graphics card and motherboard.
An initial diagnoses found that although only those two items were destroyed, as I had built it up as the very first core i7’s were released it was all gen 1 tech and it would be impossible or far too expensive to try and find a gen 1 motherboard to piece all the old gear back together. So, although I dont do nearly as much gaming as I used to, im STILL waiting for infinity and it may be the last game I ever really sink myself in to and so decided I will do one final gaming rig refresh. I ended up going with an A97, 16GB Ram, 2GB GTX 760, core i5 CPU with a few terabytes of storage. I bought farcry 4 pretty much just to have something to play, and although I wasnt expecting too much to be new i’ve always loved the series and am enjoying it a lot so far.
Hopefully this rig will be enough to run Infinity in great detail when it launches in 2056. I intend to play it from a room I will have pre booked at the Chinese owned international space station.
I was wondering though what other games people are playing? The missus is working all through christmas and new years and so i’ve got a fair bit of time upcoming to kill with weeks off work. All I play is dota2 (getting bored of it) and farcry4 now. I’m not the biggest fan of delving into space sims unless its really got everything I want, so i’ve stayed away from a few of the titles that have come out recently. I invested several years of my life into eve online so…dont even start
Looking forward to seeing some progress soon. “take my money already”…
