Jagged Alliance 3 has had its hooks in me recently.

Adept II

Got sucked into the Remnant 2 game loop and about to lose my life to Starfield and Baldur's Gate 3...

Adept II

Hoping for a cool rainy day I could spend inside building a PC with this

My wife and I main Hunt showdown. I recently upgraded to the 5800X3D and it's made a significant difference, but my wife is still on her 2700X, so would love for her to get a free upgrade!

Adept III

Would love to play Diablo IV

Adept II

I've got back into minecraft checking out all the new changes and there are a ton of new things.

Adept I

I would like to play STALKER 2

Adept III

I have recently started playing the new season of Diablo 4. I have made two characters a Rogue and a Necromancer. I have been leveling them up equally and have had a blast getting to world tier 3 so far. 

Adept II

I'm currently playing remnant 1 and would like to play the new one "remnant 2" but it's not quite optimized yet, maybe this cpu could emprove my gaming experience 😄

Adept II

Don't play games.


Adept I

I just purchased Alien Fireteam Elite! it would be great to have even more performance!

Adept II

I recently started playing Portal but it's affecting my motion sickness and can't play for more than a few minutes. Don't know why some games do that and others don't 😞

Adept II

I have recently gotten back into Cyberpunk 2077, and I am looking forward to the DLC in September. 

Yeah, I'm excited about the DLC and have been holding off on playing it again (Only 40hrs in so far) until the DLC reworks the skill trees et al and hopefully I have a VC better than my 3070 to run the Ray Tracing.

Wow, july went by so fast!

Recently I've been hooked with Red Dead Redemption 2, I forgot it came out in 2018 because the graphics are just incredible. 🤠

(P.S. I'm trying my best to be a good cowboy, hehe.)

I just finished Redfall last night just in time for the new season of COD DMZ to start. Also started the campaign for Diablo IV as well. So many games, so little time  😂

Adept III

I've recently dove back in to Call of Duty and downloading the new season update for MW2 and This would be an insane update to my 2700x i've used for the last 4+ years and make the game run even smoother

Adept II

I've been jumping around between Diablo 4 and Battlebit lately. Hoping maybe to join the next Tarkov wipe

Adept II

Well, I dunno what I am looking for next but, I recently got Back 4 Blood, so I could co-op it with my grandson. I am on PC, he is on Xbox, and we've been having a blast! Co-op FPS games in general, so I can spend quality time with my grandson (I wouldn't mind getting my hands on Starfield when it releases though.)


Hmm .. I wonder how this CPU would do in my TrueNAS server .. 🤔

This CPU is a great prize.  I have the 5600X3D and it's also a very good gaming CPU.  As for gaming, I've been playing World of Tanks - Blitz.  It's not too complicated for my brain to handle.

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

Recent gaming?

Same today as yesterday: Splitgate! Best shooter on the market, and it's free... More money for AMD hardware, eh?

Adept II

I am currently in that gaming zone where I have a ton of games installed and I'm jumping back and forth. For Dark Soulsy action I just started Jedi Last Survivor (playing with graphics settings on Epic in 4K w/o RT because I need a newer GPU) and I'm starting BG3 tomorrow along with everyone else. I've got about 40hrs in Cyberpunk 2077 but I stopped bcs I want to wait until I have a GPU that can do Ray Tracing really well and My wife and I are playing The Dark Pictures Anthology "Devil In Me" a little each night and it's not as good as The Quarry or House of Ashes from the same Genre.

Well, I looked at a Hot Wheels game online and I have played Mahjong online. Does that count.

In the proper forum, I would enjoy gambling on both. 😂

The last game I just completed was Omno, a chill, beautiful, and dare I say magical little puzzle game.

I loved it, and found it to be a great way to unwind in the evenings and just get lost in another world for a while.

Hello community!

Recently started to play Train Sim World 3 and the game is awesome, I just like trains and good graphics 🙂


This would go fantastically with Julys offering! 🤔😁 I've been lost to Cyberpunk 2077 the past couple weeks. I waited for many of the fixes to get in to it and now I can't quit it! It really is a great game. I have about 52 hours in it so far on my first playthrough as a nomad.


In other news, Amber there is a typo in the announcement in case others haven't pointed it out. If they have, well have 1 more notification! haha

July should be August.  

Thank you friend! I missed that, but have adjusted 🙂 Appreciate it!

I have to turn off my computer to afford AC for August, KWh / day and all... or I'll melt the powerlines.

I got into Apex legends and Cyberpunk 2077 recently before my pc surged two weeks ago. I had a blast though! Now I'm playing Fallout new vegas on this old laptop of mine, and i must say the "NCR" be looking like the faction for my playthrough xd.

Just playing bunch of games with my brand new XFX RX 7600 Black Edition. Good support for 1080P and 1440P. For example I get 250+ FPS in CS GO 1440P

Just ordered an AMD Radeon 6950 XT to replace the RX 6600 I bought to get going in my Ryzen 7 5700X build. I have been getting into Forza Horizons 5 but CAN'T WAIT for Starfield. Part of the reason for the upgrade, also I think GPU prices have hit their bottom so I wanted to get mine before it goes up and you can't find them on store. MY first build was an AMD K6-2 550 and have always been TEAM RED.


Let me see here; I'm old so I play old games.  In fact I have to do some tinkering to get some to run on Windows 11.  So reinstalling these games is a night mare simply because I have to dig up what I did before to get them to run.  The 3 games I like to play most are 

  • Age Of Empires 2 Conquerors edition with the Forgotten Empires patch.  Please don't ask!  This is some of the things I have to go through to get it work.
  • Command and Conquer 3 Kane's Wrath.  I never could get it to work on Windows 10, but Windows 11 will run it fine.  I hope I can remember what I did to get it to work. lol😂
  • My favorite; StarCraft Brood Wars

I have one problem with AOE and CNC3 with them not recognizing FPS.  If anyone can shed some light on WHY, I would certainly appreciate it.  They both run fine but just won't post FPS.

I've recently been loving battlebit remastered! plays like good old bf3!

Recently started playing no man's sky, while waiting for starfield to release next month.

Been playing Diablo 4 and Rust. Both are fun.

I'm excited for the upcoming Talos Principle 2
