The Computer Gaming Club 2009-03-01 22:28:09


This is a club for those who enjoy gaming on their computer; not just limited to flash games, but games like UT3, Halo 2, Call of Duty 4, Half Life 2, Portal, Crysis, etc. etc. Games that are not limited to consoles, games that only WE can enjoy!

hehehe

To join:
You must ask to join, and post your computer specs.
Your specs are for seeing who can participate in active conversation; if you don't have a decent computer, there aren't many games/features you can talk about, so conversation would be limited.

As for my specs:
AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 940 Processor
8 gigs RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4850
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit

Control panel-info and maintenance- see basic info/getting started
You should see it by then.

Either way, you're in. If you play on your comp the most, you'll most likely have a good comp.

Can I join? I'm looking into getting into PC gaming a little bit more now, seeing as I recently got a semi-decent laptop which might be good for some of the slightly older games.
Specs as follows:
Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26 GHz Processor
nVidia GeForce 9500 512 MB
4 GB RAM
Vista Home Premium

Sure.

I have a question for both of you- is Fallout 3 worth getting for the PC? I've been running out of first person shooters to play, and I was wondering if I should get it.

Oh, and if you can run them, Crysis and Crysis Warhead are both great games.

My comp runs at 3.0 Ghz, and they played fine on all settings Very High.

I have a new Phantom, but I don't have any good games except for Star Wars: Empire at War and WoW. I wish Bungie would release Halo Wars for PC.

Yeah, Ive played both, though I have never finished either. I bought fallout 3 a while back, it was fun and all but I dunno... If you're really looking for some good shooters get the Orange box if you dont have it already. Great deal. If you could find a good deal on Fallout 3, I would take it.

Any of you have Dawn of War 2? Good game?

If you're running a 32-bit operating system, that's why; 32-bit can't see all your memory. Also, because computer gaming relies on upgrading your computer every once and and again, this club will probably end up closely coinciding with mine.

Anyways, I'd love to join. Consoles may get the first releases and more games, but nothing really compares to the visuals a well built computer can yield.

Anyone here have Cod4?

Computer gaming isn't about the visuals, it's all about the gameplay. Controllers suck. TV's suck.

Response to The Computer Gaming Club 2009-03-04 19:59:26


I'm not sure if I would be allowed in. But oh well I'll try. My friend said his hard disk held atleast 1 terabyte of memory. And the OP has 8GB of RAM.

For me, I have.
Video card=512 MB
Hard Disk=38.2, though I'm pretty good at conserving space.
RAM=2GB
Processor=2.6GHz

I play Oblivion, think of Fallout 3, but a bit older, medieval times, and all that. I go to this site with thousands of mods. Awesome mods.

Nice computer. What kind of games do you play? Also, if you're up for joining, you're allowed in, I am and you have a way better computer than me.

Very sorry for the double post. Though I have a message from Elder500. He says that there are two requirements for joining the club.

-Your processor must be 2.0GHz or higher to join.
-Also, you need a minimum of 2GB RAM.

If you are on a system developed not too early, you should have the Processor to join.
Have fun gaming!

Really? That's a bit of an oversight isn't it? Anyway, that's good though. I was worrying that I'd gotten ripped off... though to be honest, I got a really good price on my laptop.

As it stands, Burnout Paradise is probably one of the most exhilarating racing games I've ever played. Highly reccommended.

Also, I play at 2560x1600, which is a ridiculous resolution. It's completely immersive and gives a new life to every single game you own. I'm giving Half life 2 another play through this weekend, because a quick look I had at it was stunning.

Fuck your life savings, get a better monitor!

What about Pure? I've seen the commercials and the back of the box, and the heights amaze me.

Wow, mine is 1680x1050, I'm good as it is. What's another good monitor around 22"-24"?

Fuck your life savings, get a better monitor!

Fuck the monitor, get the games!

I started playing Fallout 3, and it's great. I absolutely love everything, except for the fact that you can't run around too quickly. I think the "Karma" feature is great, and so is the "search body" feature. You can search nearly everything!
That game is in really great detail, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes free-roaming shooting games. Seriously, look into it.

Oh, yes, and I'd like to personally welcome everyone in this page to the club!

Might be able to get away with the original Halo: Combat Evolved. That's prety easy with the system specs, and should run alright as long as your video card is TD&L capable.

Fucking /facepalm.

This club should be open to all PC gamers. By PC gamers I mean people that play real games, not webgames such as runescape.

And fyi, the graphics card is the most important for gaming.

Fine.

I know, but I don't know too many graphics cards, most of the ones I know are Nvidia. That's also a reason why any club member can decide whether other people are let into the club. So, I assume that if you've got a good processor, then you have a fairly updated card; if you don't have a good processor, you probably wouldn't even be able to handle a good card.

I do play "real games".
Ive played Halo 1 on here, plays really well.
I have San Andreas running on 1024x786x32
I have UT99 and had UT2004 running, UT2004 had no lag.

Ive played PC games for as long as I can remember...
When I was 7 yrs old my mom bought me my first PC game-Road Wars.

Its a sweet game, still.

This club rather penalizes people who have minimal funds. I for one can get 40+ fps on css, on lower settings on my comp (see page one for my specs).
