Thanks for that link.. over $100 but I might have to just get it or maybe look for used, it's funny because some of the first games I played on PC were flying games... EF2000, Descent Freespace 2 but I haven't played them in years now.

I really need a joystick! Getting by with a controller for now. Where's my old Microsoft Sidewinder when I really need it?? Ordered some Thrustmaster "Airbus" on Amazon a while back, actually preordered and then a few weeks ago got a notice that they won't be able to supply. My preorder price was $75 and speculators are listing now for prices I won't even dignify by transcribing here. I say get it especially if you have a joystick!!

Xero, I'm in a similar situation as you and long story short think I'm gonna get one of these new cards before doing a new build.
I figure I can't go too far wrong because if it doesn't change my performance significantly, I'll know I was for sure CPU bottlenecked and then go for one of the Rocket Lake CPUs when they launch in the next couple months. Of course the better and cheaper scenario is that it performs well in your system, and you can keep going for a year or so and buy yourself some time to plan your next build. Many other factors in play of course but that's my basic advice.

This might be what gets me to try VR. I'm really liking it, of course it's really a simulator-simulator but there's those moments when you actually think you're flying for a minute. An incredible technical achievement too with the realtime weather, wind and traffic.

Surprised there's not more love for the logo in the comments.. I also noticed it right away, and actually thought maybe it hadn't changed all this time and I had just not looked in a while. Anyway, awesome.

I served Sammartino at the pharmacy I used to work at in high school. He was really huge! I didn't know who he was or anything, my boss told me afterwards. This would be around 1999-2000

I had a severe recurrence of Terraria a few months ago. I made a large map but used my old character. Once I defeated the wall of flesh I played hardmode for a couple minutes and haven't played it since, but I fear my Terraria addiction will return with interest someday.

I'm not too excited about this. . . Defense Grid 2, now that's another story. I know I played SW at the time but can't remember much about it. I know it was hotly anticipated after Duke 3D and nowhere near as good. I was surprised 3D Realms went with Shadow Warrior after Duke. They could have made a Duke sequel with the build engine that would have done well commercially no matter what, and probably would have been way better than SW. Of course all speculation... my gaming memories of that time are dominated by Quake 2.

Clicking on the comments I knew, absolutely knew, that some genius would say something along the lines of "X AMOUNT OF PPL DIE OF Y CAUSE EVERYDAY!". Thanks for the simplistic morality/math/whatever lesson you robot.

Can't you consider this from a thinking, feeling human perspective and not on a numbers/statistical level - please?

I'm also reading a book about Everest - "Everest The West Ridge" about the American ascent of that route which was done as a sort of bonus after the successful South Col ascent by the other team. It is the 50th anniversary edition and includes lots of very very nice photographs. Krakauer wrote the new foreward. Pretty good so far although they're not to base camp yet. I imagine it won't be as gripping as Into Thin Air, which is one of the most incredible books ever and extra powerful because as you said the author has a knack for nonfiction to begin with and in that case, he was actually part of the events.

Glad it's all good. I've been in another games drought. About to have the last 'confrontation' in DX Missing Link (or what I think will be), but after that there's nothing in line. I already beat and re-beat Defense Grid and all the map packs. I'm thinking about finally getting Crysis Warhead, which is pretty cheap on Amazon but last time I checked still $15 on Steam. Still not bad though.
