  1. Avengers: Infinity War

    2nd trailer is up:
  2. Avengers: Infinity War

    As Luk3us once said on the Expendables 2 cast and movie, holy mother of God..... Well finally the answer to the Expendables cast is here, Marvel's version of the Expendables. The Avengers and Guardians will team up in this epic movie coming May 2018 and almost every great Marvel character is included except the Fantastic Four, X-Men and some other characters. And yes, there's a sequel to that too coming in 2019. Official first trailer: This is the comic-con poster for the movie: The budget to do this movie should be bigger than the fourth movie of Pirates of the Caribbean (around $410 million USD gross amount). The back-to-back production of this movie coming in May 2018 and its sequel coming in 2019 were rumored to be about $1 billion USD which is berserk (and it's not a final amount). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Production_of_Avengers:_Infinity_War_and_the_untitled_Avengers_sequel Will you watch it?
  3. I do not like the way how ****ty Microsoft/Intel/AMD are limiting with their products. With Intel's Kaby Lake and AMD's Ryzen supporting Microsoft to only support Windows 10, that's good for gamers who wanted to play DirectX 12 material, but terrible for everyone else especially for those who wanted to a buy/make a new PC. I highly doubt older Windows OSs and Linux/Mac OS X can run in virtual machines under those new CPU chips. Windows 10 is barely improving and even Linux/Mac OS X are getting far better with their features and not putting in their spyware/Internet crap and excluding a lot of stuff that should have stayed there like what Windows 10 have right now. If Microsoft maintains a lot of material (including older drivers), the Windows 10 download or physical disc should be as large as Mac OS versions over 10.5 (which fits for a dual-layer DVD). Even as of now, Windows 10 is NOT the world's largest operating system. When you google that term, Windows 7 lands as the world's largest operating system with Linux Ubuntu as the second largest. Would you be willing to switch to Linux if Windows sucked? I am about one step away to try using Linux for older PCs. Newer PCs can use Windows 10, which I don't care but I already know Microsoft/Intel/AMD are planning to strip away 32-bit OSs soon, forcing you to buy/make a PC that's only 64-bit compatible and only using Windows 10. On another topic, guess what China is using to counter Microsoft, a OS replacement to WinXP named NeoKylin using Linux material: Source: https://qz.com/505383/a-first-look-at-the-chinese-operating-system-the-government-wants-to-replace-windows Latest version is 6.0, under the name Kylin.
  4. Video of the day

    Star Wars The Last Jedi should be out on digital this week and I decided it's time for another spoiler parody: Also in wake of Tomb Raider's reboot of the movie, the sins have come out:
  5. EA finally decided to make the return of micro-transactions via cosmetics only in the controversial BattleFront 2 remake: https://www.pcgamer.com/battlefront-2-progression-update-premium-currency-crystals
  6. FYI about loot boxes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loot_box Well I haven't tried opening this discussion thread ever since the Battlefront II fiasco involving loot boxes as microtransactions. Some countries and now including Hawaii USA are claiming that loot boxes is a form of gambling and are considering a ban (or limit) of sales from that game and possibly future games using that method. The only microtransactions I would accept are cosmetics and optional content used in free-to-play games. When developers are getting tired of making bigger and better single-player games (unlike what CD Projekt is doing to Cyberpunk 2077), developers decided to make free-to-play games that gives you the option to pay-to-win to unlock special content and progress further. BUT NOT EA!!! They decided to make a retail game that still require a pay-to-win format involving loot boxes. Battlefront II isn't the only game using that piece of crap but the upcoming EA Sports UFC 3 is getting more scrutiny of using the same thing: http://metro.co.uk/2017/12/01/ea-sports-ufc-3-under-fire-for-microtransactions-and-loot-boxes-7125274/ Even PC Gamer ran another article on how the future of gaming could be regulated: http://www.pcgamer.com/loot-boxes-are-bad-but-new-legislation-could-be-worse/ Just how bad can loot boxes and other microtransactions go? While PC gaming is declining, this idea of loot boxes as a form of monetization just absolutely sucked big time. And this documentary video pretty much sums more up:
  7. The Ultimate Free-to-Play PC Games List

    Sam Barlow's WarGames is out now which is free-to-play with ad support. However, an ad-free version of it will cost you $2.99 in Steam. Details: https://www.pcgamer.com/her-story-creators-wargames-out-now-reimagines-1983-matthew-broderick-film
  8. Updated 1/1/2018 -- More games removed from the list and updated some new ones. For the official record, here's the list of free-to-play PC games that are either freeware, open-source, non-open-source or independent. Only a limited number of beta, remake, expansion, browser and flash games will be mentioned here. The following free-to-play PC games cannot be included: -- pirated/hacked/cracked games (discussion of this is prohibited in this forum!) -- ROMs used in game emulators (i.e.: NES, N64, GBA, NDS, 3DS, Xbox, PS, etc. -- discussion of this is prohibited in this forum! Some exceptions are now mentioned from the Wiki free games list site) -- adult themed games involving pornography (discussion of this is prohibited in this forum!) -- promotional and free-to-try games only for a limited time (discussion of these can be mentioned here) -- game demos and shareware with partial/limited content -- abandonware/vaporware games that have little or no support (there are some exceptions) -- incomplete or canceled game even in alpha, beta or early access stage (exception is Renegade-X) -- 100% Multiplayer Online with no skirmish mode (ie. MMORPG, MOBA, etc. -- exception will be some browser/flash games) -- any game listed as an add-on modification or plug-in to the original game, program or website (except for standalone mods) -- any game listed as an alternative or clone to the original type of game (there are some exceptions) -- any game listed as a virtual reality game that may require additional hardware (that list is short for now but may consider adding them in the future) -- any game that only takes seconds or minutes to complete (ie. some versions of Reversi, Chess) -- any game that is not for Windows OS (ie. Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, any video game console, etc.) -- any game exclusively for Windows 8/10 that must be downloaded through the Windows Store (until the buggy flawed Windows Store is improved/fixed!!!) -- any game that isn't mentioned as free or free-to-play yet (including the ones that only has the source code released such as Doom 3) Please report any dead links and I will fix them. If there are no alternative download link(s) to that game, that game will be marked with an asterisk and you have to find it yourself. If you find that a game in this list isn't really free-to-play but considered as abandonware or something else, that game will be removed from the list. (Note with the asterisk (*) Please do not ask me how to get or go through it. Just Google it. That game's official download link is gone and may be unsupported or else.)

  9. And it's a card game........ http://www.pcgamer.com/valves-dota-2-card-game-artifact-is-playable-and-esports-pros-will-be-first-to-test-itreport/ Come on, Valve. Four plus years to make a digital card game only to make it a competitive e-sport and it's still Dota? Get ready for more negative reception from the Valve fans (since they are bitter angry for not having Valve making another new game). A counter to Hearthstone does not mean Artifact will turn out to be as great as Hearthstone. Maybe Valve could have created a game that includes their franchise characters into the list from Half-Life, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, Portal, Alien Swarm and Counterstrike...... similar to how Blizzard did with Heroes of the Storm, and not just a card game based on Dota. There are several different new card games this year and neither of them will beat out YugiOh, Pokemon and Magic the Gathering in the future ahead.
  10. Your System Specs - Post them here

    For those who want a solid-state drive, this is a good time to buy one because the PNY ones are on sale: https://www.pcgamer.com/get-a-120gb-solid-state-drive-for-dollar38-or-250gb-for-dollar65
  11. PC Gamer ran a new article about this mod lately: https://www.pcgamer.com/twisted-insurrection-the-mod-that-has-been-reinventing-tiberian-sun-for-a-decade
  12. Yep, Nvidia has stated before that version 390 is to be the last driver release for all people running Nvidia cards on their 32-bit OS machines and it's finally here. Either go 64-bit or bust. http://www.pcgamer.com/nvidia-is-ending-gpu-driver-support-for-32-bit-operating-systems/ This driver is a critical update for all users of Nvidia, which includes a fix involving the Intel Spectre exploit: http://www.pcgamer.com/nvidias-latest-gpu-drivers-includes-a-spectre-fix-and-fortnite-optimizations/
  13. Now Playing - Music

  14. Well I am more of a PC gaming fan. Kotaku covers all consoles and so do Gamespot, IGN, Polygon and Gamewatcher (just to name a few). Since PC Gamer is originally from the UK, it's the only PC games magazine site that seems to get an easier way of things. Why, it's still the world's #1 PC games magazine to this day.
  15. Nearing Artifact's release, Gabe Newell has said Valve will be shipping games once again: https://www.pcgamer.com/gabe-newell-hooray-valves-going-to-start-shipping-games-again Sigh..... I doubt that. It ain't April Fools yet.
  16. I never thought I would want to post this here, but for the first time ever, I decided to post a thread asking you guys to post any free giveaway on game(s) that are temporarily free to get and download without any paying cost (whether if it's from Steam, Origin or whatsoever). At least it's better than paying up front. Please do not post MP only games here. Last year, Metro 2033 was the last best free DirectX 11 game to download (via THQ's FB) until EA gave away a free promo code for Battlefield 3 which happened two months ago. I also missed last year's Origin free promo code that should have given me a free download of any game priced at $19.99 or under. As of now only seven games in Origin are permanently free to download. I do not know how many games in Steam are permanently free to download as of now. So far I missed three opportunities at getting C&C4 for free, really, unless someone in the C&C community still has an unused code specifically for that game and use it into Origin.

  18. Now Playing - Games

    Finally playing a bit of GTA V except one problem, it's RAM intensifying. No matter if you use a 16 GB virtual RAM as a pagefile or use an extremely very low settings and low resolution mod regardless of your PC, the game still lags after a few minutes of playing.
  19. Now Playing - Games

    Looked at the COD WWII walkthrough videos, nothing but a reboot of the first Call of Duty game and its expansion pack. No Captain Price this time though. Also it appears that Black Ops 4 might be coming this year thanks to James Harden's new hat? (via ESPN tweet: https://twitter.com/ESPNNBA/status/971179184776187911 )
  20. The best open-world games

    PC Gamer has now brought a new article of the best open-world games: https://www.pcgamer.com/best-open-world-games If this decade is the golden age of open-world games, then there's more to come.
  21. I lolled at this lootbox mod: https://www.pcgamer.com/the-most-downvoted-comment-in-reddit-history-is-now-a-star-wars-battlefront-2-mod
  22. GameFront Relaunches on March 11th

    Finally: https://beta.gamefront.com Looks pretty good so far for a reloaded gaming site. Let the good old times roll.
  23. Pic of the Day

    Battlefield Vegas, I thought that would have been a perfect future game title by EA/DICE..... but it's a real shooting range in Sin City. Activists tried to change this billboard into this. The original message was "shoot a .50 caliber only $29".

  24. Hunt Down The Freeman is the worst HL spinoff game ever?

    No, this fan mod is not authorized (but somehow greenlit) by Valve and yes, the price tag is ridiculous for an unpolished game. Some people are seeing content being ripped off (without giving credit/permission) from other HL/HL2 mods including Black Mesa. Freeman is the HL Freeman, but people criticized that Gordon Freeman wasn't in the game and he should have been put in there.
  25. Well IDK why did those developers managed to release this retail indie game with numerous flaws after several delays: https://www.pcgamer.com/why-people-are-furious-about-that-hunt-down-the-freeman-game-on-steam/ From so many negative reviews I am seeing, all I could say is this game is: Incomplete. A ripoff. Buggy. Has a terrible flawed plot. Not Opposing Force 2. Not Half-Life 3 material. I thought the defunct HL2 mod Opposing Force 2 had mentioned a plot that was supposed to be hunting down the real Freeman, other than the original Opposing Force's story? Hunt Down The Freeman is probably the worst HL spinoff game ever IMO.
