Fellow gaming geeks – recommend me an online shooter please…
I got it on release and thought it was brill.
But then played the old one on the PC for years. Certainly ‘slower’ pace than your normal shooter, more freedom too. But (in singleplayer) you will spend 30 minutes getting somewhere just to get shot in the head by someone you can’t see. Which I think is nice compared to COD et al, a bit of peril. Brillaint in co-op mode too.Posted 4 years ago
Ah, Far Cry 3, I’ve got that! Absolutely caned the single player but for some reason didn’t even consider multiplayer online. I’ll give that a go later
Also, going to get Orange Box again anyway, for TF2, and also just to play through the brilliant Half Life 2 games again
Thanks for the helpPosted 4 years agocranberryMember
Like the sound of Operation Flashpoint, just had a quick read of reviews
I found it to be one of the worst games I’ve ever played, unless they patched it heavily on release it was just bloody awful. Bad mechanics, slow game play and very very dull.
It has a steep learning curve and it is very different in nature to the whack-a-mole games like COD, but if you stick with it its rewarding.Posted 4 years ago
Ha no worries
So my next line of questioning as I really fancy playing Day Z, plus a number of other PC titles (maybe I should start a new thread, or try a more relevant forum)…
What cheap (new or 2nd hand), compact, gaming PC, that I can hook up to my TV, that won’t be too much bigger than my Xbox 360? Doesn’t have to perform at the very latest speeds (I’m used to an Xbox 360 remember 🙂 )Posted 4 years ago

Here’s what you can get new for that kind of money – threw it together, but it’s a good place to start.
New kit (although can’t upgrade CPU without upgrading motherboard), good enough GPU, fast reliable (but small) SSD, more than enough power from a PSU made by a decent manufacturer and a good enough CPU (but I’d upgrade this to an i5 with any spare cash). Double check it’ll fit in that case (shouldn’t be a problem)
£431 without an OS or storage drive.
Nice one scuzz, thanks. Good price for the SSD. I’ve got a large external hard drive already ( 😉 ), and can source an OS, so that looks very promising.
Building my own is the best option I think, I’m confident enough to do the construction and ‘wiring’, and should be able to get any help if I go wrong from our IT dept at workPosted 4 years ago
