Still running the same Corsair Carbide Cube case for several years now. Really love the design over the traditional tower design.

Can we get a remastering of Soldier of Fortune? Loved shooting limbs off in that one.

If they do that then I need a remake of Kingpin. LOVED that game.

That's already happening.

I think in those days pc cases were probably slow to change out so the button was just decoration. This was before even the Lian Li cases became popular.

Nah, I was just thinking in terms of another 'thing' trotted out that may never really get utilized like Intel's MMX.

I remember being so hyped when I got a P1 w/ MMX back in the day. SO FUNKY!

What about the "turbo" button on my 486. Not quite sure what that thing did.

DUDE! I remember those! A friend of mine had one with a clock-like LED display that went from 33 to 66 when you hit the turbo button. Were we able to overclock 200% clock speeds with a physical button? DID THAT HAPPEN? Or am I crazy? I was pretty young at the time.

A lot of PCs had that in the Win '95 days.
A hardware switch that overclocked and increased fan speeds.

Edit: I love wikipedia, an article for seemingly everything
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo_button

Interesting that it contradicts my memory... Says rarely used with Pentiums, but that's the only thing I ever saw them on as a kid myself. I guess I was too young for noticing the earlier usages.
Also, interesting that its actual/original purpose was to slow computers down so they could play old games... Turbo ON was the default apparently.

I played L4D2 with my brother and nephew just last month. The game has serious longevity. New content would be welcome.

This. L4D2 is pretty much my palate cleaner when it comes to zombie games. Never played any other as much as I've played this.

I don't want to craft, do parkour or have to loot box weapons. I just want to navigate from point A to point B and kill zombies along the way.

Ironically, I don't mind State of Decay. I do play that more for the action though.

So X4 Foundations can be skipped?

I really wanted to pick this up as I miss the good old days of helicopter games. Sadly, the lack of a cockpit view really turned me off.

Yeah, looks really nice and I like how the flight model can be made easy\hard.

I haven't played a MS FlightSim since the og was released back on my IBM PC jr. May have to give this a try.

I dunno, I went ahead and purchased Breakpoint because I was excited about the bots. Perhaps it's because I am an older gamer (45) but to me, this game is just a mess. With the UI, it's almost like you need an hour just to go through all this crap.

And I just want to play sp, don't give me all the mp\coop crap. I am in the rebel base or whatever it is and I see gamer tags over all the players. I don't want to see that shit. I know they're using the same UI design concept from Division so I get it. It's probably easier to crank games out this way.

But even the AI is broken. I come out of the base, get on the helo, and only one teammate gets on with me. Another pops in mid flight and the third is MIA as I cruise around the map and decide to assault a base. He never popped in.

And just give me weapons, I don't want to build weapons. I don't want to buy weapons. I don't want to go to some shop and buy blueprints for weapons. Damn, Wildlands did weapons so elegantly.

After just a couple hours and being sick and tired of another pop up telling me that I can do this or that...I just rage quit and uninstalled it along with Uplay. And don't get me started on uplay and the client.

I know I know, I'm an old gamer and I'm sure the kids love this shit but I guess I will go back to OG ghost recon and it's multitude of expansion packs. Shoot, might even play Future Warrior again.

Correct me if I'm wrong but haven't the courts all but killed municipal broadband? I get that some municipalities have it but it's far from being common.
