Re: Link Between Depression and 'Collecting'?

It's pretty easy to become a hoarder and lose yourself in shiny toys when life around you is crumbling apart. I worked in a callcentre for a few years and it fucked me up in a very bad way. I was constantly yelled at by customers to the point where I had to take heart medication because of anxiety …

Der Kuenringer wrote: Hm, well maybe I should specify then. I would be happy if the card is able to play late space sim games, like Freespace Open, Independence War 2 & Freelancer at 1600x1200. I can confirm that at least I-War 2 runs very well on 1680x1050 with a GF4 4800. Don't know about the …

Re: best windows 98 agp card

late win98 games from about 2000 to 2004, but running on a Tualatin 1400 That is a pretty big timeframe.

Re: Remembering 9/11

Re: Scariest pc game you played

Quite a few games have given me "jump scares", but for overall creep out factor SOMA was almost panic inducing for me. How did I forget that? SOMA also is one of my favorites.

Re: Scariest pc game you played

Somewhat ordered in the amount of creepyness: 1. Cry of Fear 2. Outlast 3. SOMA (//EDIT) 4. Alien: Isolation 5. Observer 6. Clive Barker's Undying 7. System Shock 2 8. Nightmare House 2 Cry of Fear is my favorite horror game of all time. The enemies are extremely unforgiving, ammo is low and you're …

Re: Worst retrogaming regret

About 10 years ago my parents took me on a trip to Berlin to visit my sister. I explored the city and found a little computer store, with an overweight, but cool Turkish store owner. He had boxes full of retro hardware and sold them for absolutely nothing since he considered them junk. One big box …

Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

I just installed Steam on my Windows XP box, where it has never been installed before. It couldn't download any games. On every download I was getting the error message "Content servers unreachable". Only a change in the config.vdf file was making it play ball again: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug …
