Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Arkham asylum on my gtx 570 system, it's way different from the sequels with its smaller scope and i like it quite a bit, i'm also impressed by the amount of visual details in a game released at the initial steps of a new generation at the time, it's also surprising to notice how unoptimized phsyx …

Re: How much of your retro hardware do you actually use?

in Milliways
Daily whenever possible, i created builds for all major generations and to appease some of my nostalgia since i had those PCs at the time, i play games and upload my longplays for fun and posterity (how did the game run on a period correct PC?) when i was streaming (not too long ago) i actually …

in Milliways
It's the only win i skipped since i started using windows in 95, but it looks solid and funny enough i finished building a retro pc (if it's 10 years old it's retro to me) that would be perfect with win 8.1 (i5 3570-GTX780) The only thing that truly scares me every single time a thread like this …
