I reinstalled this and am stuck trying to carry the guy past the Tiger Claws lookouts by the shipping containers or whatever it is. I realize I can just fail the mission but I keep trying like the idiot I am.

This is possibly the worst "AAA" game I have ever played. I thought, no way could it be as bad as what people were saying and in this case I was wrong.
One good aspect is that the city is a pretty awesome design and does give the impression of a real "open world", also the concept of the Braindances is pretty cool, but I've yet to use it in a way that the game isn't just guiding me through and basically telling me exactly what to do.
I'll set aside an hour or two to play, and then realize nearly the entire time I spent talking, trying to advance the plot so I could go do something. Way too much dialogue, and why is my guy such a sarcastic A-hole?
Anyway, I would still avoid this game if I were on the fence and I'm not sure how they could substantially improve these baked in problems - bug fixes are great but the basic game is just freakin boring.

Been using it pretty much exclusively for many years now. Underappreciated by the masses and something we will sorely miss if it's ever gone.

Did not even know they were continuing that series, not that it means anything as I'm out of many loops. Will Joe Siegler be moderating the message boards to make sure no one says it's just a reskin of Duke 3D?

My wife & I started eating vegetarian about 8 months ago and it's been way easier than I thought. I've cheated a handful of times and accidentally ordered potato soup that had bacon bits in it (which I still ate) but overall we've been meat/fish free (still dairy) and it's been a positive change. Around the holidays I made "Impossible Chili" that, while I won't lie and say it was the same as regular chili, was definitely passable. It's a good way to change up the way you cook as well, but does take some trial & error with what you make and what you shop for. I think everyone should try it for a few weeks and see how it goes.

Man.. I need to sue the guy who made this Binding of Isaac game for getting me addicted so bad! Before this I was making progress in Outer Wilds, now I can barely remember where I'm at there. I really need to chill with this game but it is incredibly addicting. I'm only playing Rebirth, and probably should not ever touch the other two because my life can't handle it!!

Oh hey guys, I can get some extra visuals on MS flight Sim with an RTX 30 series. Time to go buy an NVIDIA RTX 30 series I guess! Should be pretty easy!

Not sure about the causes of motor vehicle deaths in 2020 but I can say for sure that almost every time I've had to drive lately it seems like I'm in Mad Max. It's really bad and dangerous. Cars give great freedom but wow what a disaster in pretty much every other way.

Beamer.. I'm sure if you're able to put in those kind of bids, you'll eventually get something. Like getting a "good job", owning a home is one of those things we're told to do in overt & subtle ways our whole lives, and then when the time comes and it's not possible, you feel angry, cheated, impatient.
I bought my house in 2010 and right after that, the area started getting hot (very urban/walkable area.) But now, it's just silly. It's a small house and we're ready to get some more space and not have so many neighbors around. Even though we could probably sell for good money, everything else has gone way up especially bigger places with yards. So while it's good that I won't have to get this place in "HGTV" condition to sell, I also think I'll wait until the pandemic is mostly over (if that ever even happens at this point) and hopefully the market calms down. I tell this story because I think part of why prices are so high is that even though the market seems crazy, I would think not a lot of people are selling - who wants to be moving now unless you really have to? But have no numbers etc. to back that up. Good luck to all out there.

I have more trouble with these fan and cooler assemblies than the compound. My tips are to make sure those tabs are lined up before you go to seat it, because if not you have to lift it to get them right and possibly disturb the compound. I always do a small dot in the middle and don't spread it before. The reason is that every time I've taken a heatsink off, the compound is spread out and many times near to the edge of the chip. The past few times it's been better since I started using less. I also put it very slightly higher than the center (away from the side pointing down) to account for gravity over time, even though I redo it every 1-2 years, it seems to seep downward. Never worried about the break in period, as you'll get changes in temp naturally.


Just want to make sure this sounds about right to everyone. It's been several years since I've done this. And I know AS 5 has a 200 hour break in period where you need to make sure to power the PC off at points to let is rest. Thanks.

I assume people know about this but just in case if not, you can possibly use "autohotkey" to force applications to rebind keys. I had to do this for The Forest, because I use right mouse to move forward and there was no way to rebind movement to the mouse buttons. I picked a keyboard character I'm unlikely to use for anything else, bound that to 'move forward' in the game menu, and then used the autohotkey script to bind 'rbutton' to that character. This should work with any .exe file. You just have to have the script running before you launch the game. So in my script below, ' ] ' is what I made the game think was move forward, and ' v ' is what the game was forcing to the right mouse (which I think was opening the backpack)

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

#IfWinActive ahk_exe TheForest.exe

Cutter.. Bills are playing the 49ers tonight and the Steelers play Washington. Steelers-Bills next week
Steelers offense is doing something new for them which are these quick passes. Ben is getting rid of the ball in record time and then the receivers add on the yards. The defense is working but I wonder if one of our opponents will crack the code to these quick outs in the playoffs.

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.
