    Ah man....I was a big PC gamer back in the day, with a custom built computer and all. Now I just have my little Wal-Mart laptop I had to buy when that $1600, custom built computer literally caught fire.

    Proof:


    So now, I mostly just replay some of my old games from time to time....I don't really have the money to keep up anymore anyway.

    But some of my all time favorites are obvious stuff, like Starcraft and Warcraft 3 (never got into WoW or any other MMOs though...)

    My all time favorite video game is Morrowind. Excellent and super deep game....the scale of it remains unmatched in anything I've ever played or heard of since then. I can see why the somewhat lame fighting would turn people off, but I've easily spend thousands of hours playing it and it's two expansions and I'll still find new things when I play. Like "Hey, I never realized there was an enchanted battle axe hidden in that random stump before..." or you'll be searching some random house and find a funny note, or a throwback to one of their other games....love it. I recommend it for any PC RPG fan looking to kill many hours. You can probably find the GotY edition online for $20 bucks, and it comes fully patched with both expansions. I'd even give you some helpful tips on getting started, as that tends to be the hardest part where the most people get turned off.

    And recently, I've rediscovered my old copy of Rome: Total War. I bought it not long after it came out and played the hell out of it, but when my old gaming computer burned up, I ditched most of my games at my parents house and they got lost in the shuffle of things there. Then, back in March when I blew up my knee, I was home for spring break visiting doctors and such and needed something to do...so I got digging around and found my copy of Rome. Totally my type of game as you can really get into it and micromanage everything....I would spend 10 hours a day playing when my knee was hurt since I couldn't really do much else. Excellent game...another I highly recommend if you like more technical RTS games and you can probably find it pretty cheap online.

    Just some random thoughts of mine...
    Why not just buy a new MoBo?

      The computer was having some other problems too...that was just the final straw. It was a huge final straw though.

        lol I just noticed on Steam that they are selling MoH for $60 and a strategy guide for $20. What a joke. The best strategy that guide can offer is to not buy the game or the guide. I'm so offended by that insult to PC gamer's intelligence that I won't be buying that game ever, even if it's on sale for $5.

          Anyone else attending Blizzcon this year? I'm going as a fansite invitee for my d3 site (d3db.com) so I'll be there.

          If you're in the area, let me buy you a beer.

            Had some good times playing Diablo 2. Was a Necromancer with my little army of skels....fun times. Didn't even know until now they are making a 3.

              We're hoping that they release the last class this year.. Monk was the big reveal last year and we've heard -nothing- since then.

              I got to play D3 for a few hours last year and it's clean and crisp. It is already super smooth. It's going to be a pretty nuts game.

                They don't have a Rogue/Amazon equivilent, so I'm guessing that will be the last class. They'll definitely reveal it this weekend. I'm guessing they'll also announce a beta for D3 and a broad release date (Q#). I've heard the Cataclysm cinematic is f*cking nuts, but I keep forgetting to check it out. They'll probably show that on a big screen.

                  Yeah, I'm guessing that it'll probably be an Amazon/Rogue type character as well, but we'll see in a few days.

                  that's really entertaining... i helped run almost all of the big d2 sites at various points
                  Yeah, a friend and I started it when they announced it. I might be liveblogging the opening ceremony/a few panels, but not sure yet.

                    Demon Hunter is the final class. Range, Melee, or Shadow DPS. This was pretty obvious, but still interesting.

                      Just buy an Alienware.

                        I finally got around to playing a few hours of Mirror's Edge, which I bought on sale back in July. What a great game! I had no idea I'd like it this much. A must have if you're big into first person games. Does a great job and making you feel like you're in the world of the game.

                          A good Alienware would have been like 2 or 3 times as much money as mine was.....plus customizing it myself with friends was cool....til it caught fire....

                            Those things are dogshit and a complete rip-off. That's like paying a crack ***** $50 for sex/handy/bj when you can go to the bar and get a decent chubby to do the same for a $3 drink.

                                I play Countersike: Source and League of Legends at the moment. Has anyone bought Fallout yet? Worth it?
