Re: List of PC games that you have beaten

in Milliways
Cyberpunk 2077 58hr 54m Tons of gigs, crimes, agent saboteur things to do but I've completed all the story missions. Experienced no game breaking bugs or much oddness at all really. Only two things I can recall was falling through the map once and no notice for what button to press to leave a …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Well seeing the thread hasn't been split off yet...I will provide an update...I put a XFi in my Win10 PC and installed DanielKs driver pack. I start up Bioshock...and I *think* the sound is a bit more reverby, but hard to say. What I did notice though is the framerate went through the roof, from 75 …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I'm having a heck of a time beating the last big battle in Half-Life 2 Episode 2. The one where you defend the base against the waves of Striders. I've tried and failed at least 3 times and each go takes a good 10-15 minutes. So far I'm almost 9 hours into this add-on. I know I'll get it eventually …
