Thank you very much for your information. I have tried a few of those and planning to do the rest once I get a decent gaming rig. This brings me to the next chapter now we got some really awsum game titles so now let's talk about gaming systems I wanna know which gaming system is better a PC or laptop? Also which is cheer and also I wanna know the specs required in a righ to run all demanding titles in ultra settings in 55-70fps
P.S THANKS FOR YOUR ACTIVENESS AND THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME IN READING MY LOOONG MESSAGE

I would avoid laptops for heavy gaming. They tend to be poor at cooling, hard to clean, and often burn out the proc or GPU. Use a desktop. Even a small form factor PC is preferable, while remaining fairly portable if that's important to you.

For running AAA games at max settings around 60fps on 1080P, you should get a core i5 processor, 8 or more GB of RAM, and a nVidia 970 graphics card. If you know what you're doing, you can build your own, or if not, get a prebuilt one from someplace. This review of nine different custom builders should help you decide.
Ditto for lappies. Not good for gaming unless you don't mind the high prices and limitations. Desktops FTW even though I don't game anymore.

I'll give it an honest two weeks before shelving it.

Eh, that is about how I have played D3, but I still give credit where credit is due. They are still adding content well after the release. This one looks to have more substance than the last few updates so I might get hooked longer.
Ha, I did that with its beta.

The news of Ian Murdock's death is really shocking, even more so given that it may be suicide as a result of police brutality.

For those not aware the "ian" in "Debian" is from Ian Murdock's first name. Debian is the the basis of the popular linux distributions Ubuntu and Linux Mint.
Yep, :(. Wasn't Deb based on Deborah, his wife, or something?

I play Rbot's card games (Uno, Rumble, and Junkyard). At least they are turn based! Sometimes they can take weeks to finish. LOL!

That's sad about Mike. He lost his son about 2 years ago, who was killed in action in Afghanistan. Now he's gone too. Tough couple years for his family... RIP
I just found this out since I was trying post on his forum. Dang! 2013 was a bad year with so many deaths.

Geez, reading this thread I feel like other Kali players from the 90s got on the same Linux and OS X train I did in the same way.
Are there still Kali players today? It seems dead.

I would advise against it, unless your a glutton for punishment! Biting Giggle
Even for free? Either way, I doubt I will every play it due to BUSY life (still haven't seen Ant-Man, SW:TFA, etc. :P).

News Comments > C&C Tiberian Dawn Redux
4. v1.4 is out. Dec 13, 2015, 23:33 Ant
 
I finally tried it! Whoops. I blame this game to keep me stay up late like old times. I decided to do quick install and play, but I ran into problems with my old C&C:G 0 Hr. not launching. Even uninstalling failed! That was a hassle. I guess the installation rotted since 2005 according to my very old saved generals games! :I Anyways, I finally got it uninstalled, reinstalled, upgraded, and played it a little bit. Then, I ran into bugs (already told the developer -- hey, am I getting paid? :P). The graphics were outdated, but much better than the old 2D engine. It was still fun! Even single player was there, enhanced. o/~ I'm a mechanical man! o/~

I hope someone can/will do the same for C&C3's engine (still have it installed too!).

Did anyone else try it?
