Re: The "Pay It Foward" Thread

I've been wanting to play through BL2 again, would be cool to co-op. Not sure about going all the way back to BL1 though, the interface and systems are a bit rough in comparison. I've re-installed Borderlands 2. It's been so long I don't recall what I was doing or how to play but if a few people wa...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I'm not going to be able to afford VR (no time in the foreseeable future) but would love to see what it's like.

Is there anywhere you can go and demo/try the Rift or Vive? Even for just 5 minutes.

It does fluctuate but I think I'll stick with it over the NBN for now.

Re: The NBN thread

Thank you for the detailed reply. You've given me plenty to think about.

Will probably not switch to the NBN for now after reading your bad experience. Have done some research lots of other people seem to be in the same boat as you.

Hi guys, I've mostly ignored this thread because the NBN was so far off but it's finally arrived (according to a pamphlet left in the mailbox by TPG).

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II

They’ve reduced the credit unlocks by 75%, so Luke/Vader has gone down from 60,000 to 15,000. Still the damage has been done and it is still insulting to lock iconic characters for no justifiable reason other than to incentivise people to pay for loot boxes. Don't praise them to much - while they'v...

Re: Game of Thrones (Season 7) - This thread is dark and full of spoilers

I have to admit that one sad bit that was well done was the way they wound up Hodor. I just liked the fact that there was enough forethought put into the show and his character that they knew what was going to happen to him from the start....for some reason when I watched that scene I must have got ...

I was going to mention some favorite parts but there are to many of them. After watching it so full on I can't be...

Colour on Multiple Monitors

I've 2 monitors - old but do the job. Both are Dells (different models) and they sit side by side. I've never been able to get the colours to match properly so tonight I started messing around with the physical buttons on them and managed to get the desktop (a dark photo of Pluto) to look almost ide...

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - October 2017

Got one these for my birthday from my wife and kids. Mixed reviews about it but it's 1000 times better than the 10 year old $10 keyboard I was using before hand.

Steam Controller

I managed to pick up a Steam Link for $27.00 a while ago and it seems to work pretty well. Problem is I only have a really crap knock off Xbox controller for it which is horrible and I've found kb & mouse doesn't really work on the couch. I was thinking of getting a Steam Controller but they're not ...

I've got a birthday coming up with a number ending in a zero and I've been asked by the family what I would like - budget would be about $100.
