Game still sounds like a hot mess. Too bad I was hoping it was going to be good.
I still haven't tried the game. :/

Ha. I am still trying to finish WiC that I bought like a decade ago! I played more on Sunday night, but failed to defend Seattle. It got nuked from US President.

Redwood, Sean Martin, ran Stomped gaming web site back like in the 90s. https://web.archive.org/web/19990101000000*/http://stomped.com for the archived web site copies. Is he even online actively? He must have many rings now. Belated birthday, old tree!

I just now saw that, there is nothing wrong with your directory listing. You do know that you can fit more games on a hdd if you subscribe to humblemonthly, most of their stuff is older and does not take up that much space. {wink}

Like you, I have hundreds of games but limited space (128gb ssd, 500tb 10k and 1tb 7.2k, none over 80% full). So I gotta be super careful and limit the number of games I install.

Heh, I showed my installed 'Games' folders, those are nothing next to my torrent download folders. Both of those 'installed' folders came to about ~120gb each - my download folders come in at around 930gb each. I'd screenshot them but it won't all fit in one picture and I have a feeling Blue would nix it anyway due to how they were obtained. The 'good' thing is that since I moved last year, I've only downloaded games on my STEAM account, nothing large has been torrented, due to my shitty Net connection and cap.

Here's 4 TB of 7200 rpm goodness for $100.
Technology is so cool. I remember how amazing it was the first time I was able to buy 1 GB drives for $100.

I didn't even know what a hard drive was until I got my IBM PS/1 in '92. Up until then I'd been using a Tandy CoCo3, which only had 128k of memory and two 5.25" drives. When I got my P2/400 in '97, I had a 6gb hard drive and thought I'd never fill it!

I'm actually looking hard at Seagate's hybrid SSD/HD drives (SSHD). They have a 1tb SSHD for $90, which isn't bad. And NewEgg has the 1tb 850Evo SSD's for $230, which isn't bad either. A 1tb SSD? Wow!

=-Rigs-=
I get my 1st HDD (30 MB!) until my IBM PS/2 model 30 286 10 Mhz desktop PC. I even bought Stacker software from Egghead to double it. Hahah!

Why are you fixated on the 1050 Ti? You'd get much better future proofing with a 1070 Ti.

Budget? I'm not spending $500 for a video card. That's just crazy wallet.

Besides going from a GTX 960 to a 1050 Ti is a sizeable upgrade.

Instead of spending $200 each year, you spend $450 and keep it for 3-4 years.

I don't buy video cards every year. Never have, never will. I bought my GTX 960 in 2015. It's been good for me since.
So did I when I was a hardcore gamer. I am still using my 512 MB of VRAM video cards: ATI Radeon 4870 and GeForce 8800 GT!

CoD is shit, Battlefield is better. THREAD DERAILED.

Dude, you brought up BF in a CoD thread. KXMode is gonna be so mad...

But BF is better. It's more open, flyable, driveable, etc. Lots of options! CoD is fine for infantry and linear. Oh, and I meant multiplayer.

I can't play any due to lack of free time and hardwares.

Give me 80% off what I want or wait another year for my money. That's what I say - my backlog's so big I can wait 5 years before needing to make a purchase.

Nah 80% is too little. At least 90% or it's nothing worth!

90%? Pfft. 100% or no deal.
Nah, over 100%.
