So my Steel Series Siberia V2's crapped out after around 3 years of almost daily use, and I'm in need of a new headset. Any suggestions for a good quality gaming headset that's less than $100?

Was thinking about buying another pair of the V2's as I really liked them, but after looking up my issues, and seeing they are pretty common(left side losing sound, and shitty wiring in the mic/volume control box that leads to them not working) and not getting fixed might be in the market for something else.

open can design on a decent headset.

it's not rocket science. Really, don't waste money on stupid "gaming" headsets. Buy yourself some decent Beyer Dynamics or Sennheisers.

You're going to be using the headphones for more than playing games, most likely, so why get yourself intentionally hamstrung sound quality just for "better" sound just for gaming? Get a headset you'd want to listen to music or movie audio on.

Okay, Opchan tech support time, relevant to thread. Yesterday I got my new parts in, and after wrestling with an apparently-corrupted Windows install, I'm now on a shiny "new" build (the old Ship of Theseus paradox comes into play here). Short version is I'm running a Core i7-6700K on a Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7, with a gargantuan Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (and new RAM, but I can't see that being my issue). Problem is, my sound quality is ass now. A lot more buzz and hiss than my old board had, which elevates to a spitting buzz when I start playing anything. My understanding is that it's probably interference from something poorly-shielded, but where/how would I go about mitigating that?

So from a rig perspective I have been holding out and skipped the 9X series.

I demand to do 4k gaming on my 50" and was not satisfied with the benchmark reports on the VR front of the 980TIs or Titans....

I was betting on pascal to carry the day and suffered in silence.

Oh how waiting has paid off it appears.

Gonna get two of these straight away and laugh at all the 980s flooding the market/trashcan.

We shall see what the benches come back with, but I am not sold.

Nvidia can have 200 dollars more for being top shelf on performance.

Before they nerfed everything in BF3, shortly after it came out, me and my friend would hold off the entire team and protect an area with USAS-12s and frag 12 ammunition. It was OP, but we felt it was fair because were the only ones on our team that would communicate and coordinate in a game where that was important.

I would also counter snipe enemies across the map with the 870 and frag 12s.

I also used Johnny-5 (EOD bot) as a motherfucking offensive tool, I used that fucker like an abused pitbull on meth and PCP. I was scary good at getting behind enemy lines with it and killing people. Then they nerfed that thing too. My favorite moment with the bot was when three enemy bots surrounded me in a corner and killed me. Shit was hilarious.

They ruined everything I loved. It's like my friend used to say, "you would focus on that one thing and get very good at it, then they would take it away and you'd find something else to focus on and become really good at that and they take that away. Rinse and repeat." It's true, while I'm a versatile player, I tend get the most enjoyment when I'm doing one thing with something that it wasn't designed for.

I guess the EOD bot wasn't designed for getting air off a ramp and killing people midair. Didn't stop me. :) Until EA stopped me. :(

This would be interesting as an Eve social experiment. Sort of like how that guy has had a game of Civilization II he's run forever and it ended up with 1700 years of nuclear war between 3 supernations.

You could run a transparent Eve stream and try to make it work against the additional difficulty of people knowing where you are and what you're doing. I imagine it'd make for incredibly conservative play and you'd reach a glass ceiling too.

What did you like/love, but did not really make a mark on the industry?
These games do not necessarily have to be "special", just being fun is enough to qualify.

Some quests could be a little tedious, with some walking back and forth from one town to another, and videogame "logic" may apply to the resolution of quests, like "how do we fight off this castle invasion" having the answer be "get a magic hammer from an old lady at the black market so you can meet a tiny old man to get a wind spirit so he can spread sleep-flower over the enemy" but if you pay attention and talk to NPCs, it isn't completely mental. Some (most) maps are mazes and some even go the extra distance and get all bent-space on you (fucking elves man), this can be a little discouraging but it isn't that bad.

You end up revisiting a lot of places more than once, but they never seem to get old, you have access to different areas previously blocked first time around and so forth.

I have to say that this game has little new, but the execution is top notch. If you're into a magical adventure on the SNES and can remember that this was all done on a 16 bit system with less than 5 fucking megabytes (LESS THAN FIVE MEGABYTES), give this a go even if you haven't played other SoM games.

Secret of Mana and Legend of Mana for the PS1 were awesome too, and you should play them too of course.

Fury 3: a space planet shooter for Windows 95 (that isn't the third part to anything, so why is it 3?).

I remember playing this when I was 4 years old, getting the most value out of the family's first computer with a GUI. Now that I think about it, this is probably the first game with 3d graphics I'd ever played.

You fly around maps that I remember feeling as if they were the curved surfaces of a globe, and accomplish objectives by shooting lots of shit. You pick up special weapons and ammo from the shit you destroy. Every 3rd mission has a bitching boss battle, and then you move on to the next planet. The game is pretty easy and arcadey, easily controllable solely with the keyboard. Because I was only a small child, I had no way of knowing about or being able to purchase a more advanced pc space flight sim like X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to this game in person, or on the internet.
>> No. 58038 ID: 8be205
Fury 3 was just a Windows 95-native Terminal Velocity, which a lot of people have played (and used to come in a bonus disc as shareware with some versions of Windows 95 as alongside Netscape Navigator and other such programs people might want.)

You can still buy it on GoG.com or steam.
Runs in dosbox, and Terminal Velocity was pretty fucking fun for me, back in the day. PLayed the Shareware version of EP1 that was on the bonus shit section of my Duke Nukem 3D disc.

I also had a lot of fun with SWIV 3D, a helicopter voxel-graphics arcade flight game, kind of like Desert Strike and Soviet Strike. Differed in that everything was voxel rendered, and you had rotation control of the camera. Also had altitude control of the helo.

Kind of fun, it and Mass Destruction pretty much fulfilled all my mindless vehicular combat game needs back in the day.

Because its heilarious. Some guy who wanted to be in an open relationship to bang broads instead gets cucked, then his wife leaves taking his video game machine, and he tries to be gay but fails at that too. And it happened to one of those piece of shit SJWs who insists on inserting poorly written SJW approved characters in video games.

Don't get me wrong, I've nothing against gay people or other "SJW" topic people in video games but not as a poorly written "gay" character or "trans" character but a character who is gay or trans, not a walking stereotype solely defined by whos pants they want to get in. Someone like Juhani from KOTOR who was gay but was also a well written character who didn't just come right out and blurt "itsa me, the gay character, imma number 1".

What a shit answer to the question. It implies all authors who have trouble writing the opposite sex don't consider women to be people. And it can be applied equally idiotically to everything.

Question is as stupid as the answer considering this dumbass doesn't write good characters, they are all twilight tier mary sues. His only innovation is torturing them to hell, but there's no story arc there, he just tortures them, he doesn't even write it as a tragedy.

So I thought I'd go play Oblivion. You know, that game starring Tom Cruise, some cute Ukranian chick from Quantum of Solace, some cute redhead bitch, and some Morgan Freeman.

I have a couple questions, should I answer yes when the evil robot lady asks me if we are still an effective team? Should I play the obligatory canyon chase level with the obligatory Statue of Liberty? Should I embrace the teaching of Xenu?

No but serious Opchan recommended mods to make it not look like so much anus and maybe add some cool shit.

I've never actually played the game before, part of those games I missed while I had nothing to play it on and as the very definition of a slowpoke gamer I'd like to give it a try now.

Also anybody know if its possible to port shit from Fallout 3/NV to Oblivion? There seems to be guides to do so for the opposite way, Oblivion to F3/NV but nothing to bring Fallout 3 or New Vegas assets to Oblivion.
>> No. 57837 ID: 8be205
>Also anybody know if its possible to port shit from Fallout 3/NV to Oblivion?

Not as far as I know. Armor/clothing meshes are assembled differently for Oblivion (needing to be multi-part to equip the hands, upper torso, legs, etc.) and Fallout (pretty much one-piece body and a head items.) You can assembled the meshes from Oblivion into one full mesh for FO3, but it's very hard without a lot of work to break it into multiple parts and then assign it the right identifiers for each location.

Some weapons, I believe, can be ported from FO to Oblivion but the textures need downgrading for the most part due to Oblivions console-first nature requiring most meshes be below certain width/height sizes to fit into XBox 360 and PS3's 512mb ram limitations, and the firearms will be wonky because of the much more limited projectile physics simulation.

So, pretty much, stick to stuff made for Oblivion for mods. Also dependencies might get fucked for a lot of older mods which authors have abandoned.
>> No. 57848 ID: a03eb7
  Play Morrowind. It's much better than Oblivion and OpenMW is looking pretty good so far, someone has even managed to even integrate working multiplayer. Basically people made a new engine and are porting over morrowind in it's entirety.

I haven't played it in years, so I don't know which mods are still around and compatible with what.

The Unofficial Patches would be a good start.

From what I remember, the important mods were the huge overhauls, FCOM would somehow combine them all into one super-mod. I was very bandwith limited at the time, so I played with the TIE mod. It used all standard components, but removed the enemy and loot scaling. Enemies would be very dangerous from the start, and becoming actually fair once you leveled some.

Unique Landscapes had some utterly beautiful scenery. Eerie forests, scenic coastlines, stunning canyons, and actual farms.

Deadly Reflex was good for a laugh, and decapitating or cutting people in half.

Magic mods were cool for adding new spells and actually making magic useful, but they also made you insanely powerful. I would cast a speed spell on my horse, and it would run faster than the world could load on my admittedly weak machine.

Open Cities would remove the gates to cities, making the world more free flowing, but it had lots of incompatibilities with other mods.

  Anyone else playing Battlefleet Gothic: Armada? This game is fun as fuck. Pretty fun space/tallship RTS, with an added bonus of being in the Warhammer 40k Universe. You basically create an admiral and level up/grow your fleet of spaceships. Campaign is Imperial Navy only so far, but in Solo Skirmish and Multiplayer you create separate admirals allowing you to play different factions or have different types of fleets within factions.

Still in beta but I've only encountered some minor stuttering during cut scenes. Also all the Imperial navy ships look the same...but that's just a lore thing...

I like the campaign, has story missions than side missions over different systems in the Gothic sector. Basically trying to defend against Abaddon's 12th Black Crusade, and fight off other xenos.

Seems to be a lot of other stuff like losing planets to chaos, worlds having forts/defenses, But haven't gotten super far so not sure if any of that has really come into play.

Just a heads up, there was a game breaking bug/cheat that recently started popping up. Basically you'd be in the middle of the game and lose your camera and the game would crash in a fatal error. Apparently this is a cheat or some kind of exploit, but the devs have responded and started VAC banning so it may be fixed now/soon haven't played in a few days.

I'm not enjoying this as much as I thought I would. It's not a bad game, but gets frustrating easily and the "story"/characters are just stereotypes. I was hoping for a more interesting story, I guess. More backstabbing.

I'm resorting to RAM ALL THE THINGS (and spam boarding actions) with a few long ranged ships in support.
I'm frustrated by the pause thing not being a full pause, though I understand why they did that.

Finished it. Turns out to be very repetitive & often frustrating.
The dialogue that is supposed to make it all work is also subpar.
It's also called Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, but there's no mission were you actually have a HUGE fleet at your disposal. I was hoping for the final mission to have a retarded amount of ships in it, since most missions up to it only allow you to take a few ships.

It's extra retarded to have enemy ships go to -1 HP on their hull, but by Deus Ex Machina warping out anyway. At least make them warp out at say 25% or let them pop the 10 second shields you have as well to allow the suspension of disbelief to do its work.

Meh. Would not recommend. There's an endless things to improve in this game. From story & dialogue, to better logic (like unable to reuse the same ships within a given term, so you're forced to make use of your fleet), to fixing inconsistencies (when your ship steals info from the enemy and warps out, finding itself 'lost in the warp', you somehow have the info & the story continues? how the hell is that possible?) and bugs (crashes & stuttering mostly). Overall feels unfinished.
