More GT5. I got my PS3 running in 1080p on my monitor temporarily until I have a decent stand for the wheel. For now the desk is the only place I can use it. It actually looks really nice on the monitor though... Might get qa KVM switch to make it easy to switch between PC and PS3 on the monitor. I can already do that with the TV but it's a little more complicated going the other way.





Gonna be a while before I can get a good stand/cockpit though. That cup of change is pretty much my budget right now.

EDIT: LOL I just now noticed the lap time on the second pic... Weird coincidence

The clouded areas you see at the top of map will eventually have some maps too, a Metro system is planned to go in next to the NPP level.

It's way way more challenging too so be sure to quicksave often.

This is basically the mod I've been waiting for all my life, thanks amigo.

no problem Xan, I knew you would love it

it might run a bit slow on your system though, its a 13GB mod and it take a while to load, also the shaders are improved a bit, even on my system I'm dropping into the 30fps range in some areas at max detail.

More GT5 with a friend, and Diablo III beta before that. D3 is awesome. Love the physics and the enemies.

You sunuvabitch


Been playing more Trials Evolution. I "beat" the game and unlocked the Extreme tracks. Those motherfuckers are a bitch and a half. Trying to get all the Gold medals on the other tracks first. So far I got 3 and a half courses done. Hope that the multiplayer will get patched soon.

Witcher 2: Enh. Edition

Getting between 12 - 45 FPS, 1920x1080. Maxed settings, no AA, Large Textures. No Uber that's for sure.

Also, fuck damn! This game is hard! I've been playing the prologue or whatever you call it, I've died more than 15 times now. This is supposed to be a tutorial to get used to the game. You can't heal during combat, at least not in the beginning. This isn't Skyrim, your going to play and show skill in combat and evasiveness or your going to perish hard.

Edit: Woooo! Managed to beat that fucking knight and the 4 douchenozzles. Took me 7 tries, 5 times with traps and combat, twice with bombs.

Killed myself 4 times, two times I got stabbed like a dog and at the last attempt I barely managed to win the fight. Got onto the next part now where I barely was able to win a QTE. Spamming buttons is useless as it has no effect. Apart from a broken fist, I really like this game. The graphics are a sexual experience.

GW2 Beta.
Not bad, biggest problem right now is the lag. Everyone tends to bunch up during events and it gets really choppy. Also I'm not sure if it's the events scaling up but it seems like when ever that happens you'll die pretty easily.
Actually I die a lot.

It's definitely in beta form I've seen a handful of little bugs that don't really destroy the game but you can tell they still need to polish out. I'll very likely play it when it releases as it was pretty fun and seems like there's ton to do.

GTA IV Online, man I forgot how much it sucks when it comes to matchmaking and joining games, so glad they fixed that shit for RDR.

Witcher 2

Got my first Endrega queen kill, thanks to a quest NPC I was supposed to meet. Bitch was doing a ton of damage, even through my 20 Armour that I've barely scrapped along. Thankfully through my Hexing and this NPC guy getting her attention I managed to kill her.

Got a Endrega trophy that adds +3 Armour and a greater mutagen that I can't wait to try out.

Went ahead to a different quest at a nearby waterfall, met a elf girl that promptly sold me out to the Scoia'Tel. They planned a ambush near a nekker spot, so it was a two way battle and they ignored me completely. Used my upgraded Axii sign to kill those fuckers.

Tons of loot, tons of fun. I'd go as far as to say that the gameplay is more fun than Skyrim.

No, you can grasp basics about what's happened or who was involved. For anything else, there is always the Witcher wikia.

The game has a few moments where you meet characters from the previous game, and it actually offers you a choice. Either you remember them or you don't.

Just make sure you get the Enhanced edition or upgrade to it, it adds a few hours of content along with a slew of bugfixes.

I've just got to a fight that I can't beat. All my fucking effort, all my fucking skill. I can't even take 1/10th of the health bar away before I'm completely dominated.

Searching for tips I can see I've got better weapon and Armour than most people that have done this with ease. But the love of god I can't see a way to kill this guy without cheating or glitching him. It's possible, but when you've got really good luck to not get hit. I need to sleep on this, this game is fucking unforgiving.

edit:

Beat him! It was close this time. But the FUCKER TOOK MY SWORD, WHY? I SPENT EVERY FUCKING OUNCE OF WILL GETTING THAT SWORD, 3 FUCKING HOURS OF SCAVENGING
