Hello All --
Apologies up front for the length of this post -- I will keep them shorter in the future.
I would like some advice on games to get. I am moving from an old rig to a new one (currently under construction).
My preferences run to noirish dystopian SciFi FPS/RPG/Adventure combos, WWII Nazi shoots and suchlike.
Old rig (built 4 years ago):
CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600
RAM: 2 GB
GPU: GeForce 8800 GT
Games enjoyed: Deus Ex series, Half Life 2, Far Cry, Crysis, FEAR series, Fallout3, Fallout: NV, CoD, MoH, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.
Also really enjoyed The Longest Journey, even though (and partly because) there was no violence,
although my preference usually runs to drum-fed big-bore shotguns and silenced large caliber sniper rifles.
Oh, also did BioShock: way too creepy.
I like games that combine outdoor adventure, FPS, RPG. I do not intend to play online (I'm too slow for that scene).
I am not generally interested in fantasy, but might make an exception if the eye candy is yummy enough
(not referring exclusively to HD images of big-chested scanitly-clad wenches, but that's a plus
Oh, and Puhh-Leeeeze: no more time-limited sprints down tunnels or mazes trying to outrun giant spiders,
zombie hordes or supernatural monsters (occasional plausible mutants are OK)
-- been there, done that, got the bloody T-shirt
New rig (building now):
MoBo: Asus P9X79 Deluxe
CPU: Core i7-3960X w/ Intel RTS2011LC cooler (I know, JBaz -- WTF
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB
RAM: 32 GB DDR3 1600
SSD: Samsung Series 830 256GB SATA III
HDD: WD 1TB 7200
PSU: Antec HCP 1200
OS: Win7Pro 64 bit
