  1. Well....yeah. Newer OS, new and more features. It shouldn't use more cpu power. My 2700x sits at 1% utilization at startup. RAM should be a non-issue as you should have at least 16GB. Windows 10 is the best version of their OS they've released so far. I mean it boots really fast even on a basic SSD. I don't really have any complaints. It does what I need it to fairly quickly and I have plenty of resources to hit 144hz on most games.
  2. Linus I hope you read this to give you some insight as to why the chat heads thing is so great for some people. You seem to really not like it or understand what's nice about it, so I hope you read why I like it: It's literally the most convenient way to talk to people. When I'm at work I'm constantly messaging my wife. I have chosen to message her on Facebook Messenger specifically because of the chat head. The chat head goes on top of ANY application, which is a big deal. I could be watching an LTT video (which I normally save for work) and I don't have to swipe up, tap the butto
  3. Customization: You can customize almost everything, main distro to exemplify this would be KDENeon, one of the best distros out there. Ease of use: Most of the popular distros include a software library of some sort, which is sort of like an app store. Some distros stores are heavily curated with software that for sure works and is up to a certain standard. Elementary OS stands out in this regard. This makes using the OS very easy, as you can easily download whatever it is you need without having to browse to it. Whatever you need to perform 99% of common ta
  4. Heck yeah man. I haven't been into those types of games really, but for some reason I've gotten dragged into it with the Shadowfall event. What a superfun game mode.
  5. Hell yeah, love my hero shooters as well, mainly Overwatch. Played that game since day 1 and every competitive season.
  6. I've bought 3 computers worth of parts from Newegg and have NEVER had an issue. One motherboard I had shorted out, probably because of how I was handling it. But I contacted the motherboard manufacturer and they replaced it. Oftentimes you can go to the manufacturer website and get support from them. As long as you have your receipt you'll more than likely be good to go from either newegg or the part manufacturer.
  7. Nice! Interesting to see so many different tastes. I was into the tower defense games for a bit, they can be decent time wasters. Farcry 3 was great! The only other game we did a LAN with at my dads house. We thought it was so crazy immersive back then, actually being able to hide in bushes from each other and stuff. Puzzle style games I've never really been into, except for Portal. But Portal is kind of the exception, as it's such a brilliant game. This is why gaming is awesome. Something for everyone. A game could be awful to someone but loved
  8. Everyone has a preferred game or style of game, for the most part. For example I'm partial to arena shooters. My first FPS on the computer was Unreal Tournament that my dad play. Image 8 year old me listening to NPC's shouting "DIE BITCH!". It was nuts and I loved it. Played the heck out of that game and even had my first LAN at my dads house playing that game. Playing CTF on Facing Worlds or Lava Giant, deathmatch on Curse. Since then I've always had a soft spot for arena shooters.
  9. ITT: Everyone hating popular games (Fallout 4, No Man's Sky, fortnite, etc). Which are objectively good games. Let me list a game that's actually terrible: Lego Star Wars II for the Nintendo DS. Actual game-breaking bugs, characters, whole textures, and items flickering in and out of existence constantly. Massive slowdowns during anything above light combat or in large areas. I played it all the way through completion for some reason. I couldn't put it down. But holy crap I have never played a game that had so many issues before. FO4: Excellent game with some of the bes
  10. Doesn't sound like you need one, unless you want to play some exclusives like mario kart, smash bros, BOTW, etc. I personally love mine because I travel a lot for work. I have an xbox one x and I play the Switch more. I like laying in bed next to the wife playing. Your PS4 has the better controller, better library of games (unless you want nintendo exclusives), performance is better, and graphics are better.
  11. I get that way sometimes. I'll just sit at my computer and look at my various game libraries and be like, "I just...don't want to play anything". It's kinda weird isn't it? I have all these games and sometimes just have no drive to play any of them. Even the more casual ones that don't require a whole lot of thought or games I know really well, like Overwatch or something. I just make myself play sometimes. Like I got Metro Exodus as a bonus when I bought my 2080. Took me forever to start playing it. I just couldn't be bothered, even though I heard all kinds of great things about
  12. Remedy's Control is an amazing game. I have yet to come across a game I've been so engrossed in where it's hard to play anything else. I'm a PC gamer that has always loved ground-breaking graphics, thinking that video games are a work of art on the part of developers on how they try to build their world. It's a psychological thriller. I've had game consoles since the Super Nintendo. My first PC I built with my dad was a windows 95 machine. So having most consoles since the super nintendo and PC's since windows 95, I can say this is the first game I've played where I want to find ev
  13. Yeah I suppose, I guess. Jumping is always a thing in fps's though. Overwatch you jump a lot, call of duty, etc. But in quake you have acceleration, b-hopping etc. In quake jumping correctly is super important to reach ledges. People just jump in bf5 to stop getting hit. Like being stung by bees, lol.
  14. How is BFV like Quake? Quake is an arena shooter. TTK is small, accuracy is extremely important. Management of power weapons. It's very squad based. You got tanks and airplanes. Maybe you played Rush? Rush is infantry v infantry. Play Conquest, that's where you get the vehicles and the "true" battlefield experience.
  15. #lostforumuser Anyway, Call of Duty Mobile is pretty good. Very smooth and the gameplay is nice. It's actually a bit incredible to see some full maps in there. Like legit maps from the big brother CoD's. Controls are nice and the auto-fire one is decently tuned as well, which was surprising. Fortnite is still amazing on a phone. I mean a giant 100man game running at 60 FPS? Still incredible.
