Taking my PC in to get repaired today.  Guy on the phone sounds he knows his stuff and his shop is 5* with lots of reviews.  I'll ask him if I should upgrade my video card or look to buy another after he looks at my specs.  He told me in the meantime to look at what types of games I want to play because video cards range in price - I don't think I'd be playing anything hardcore like virtual reality.  My old games I was playing before it went haywire American Truck Sim, Cities Skyline, etc.

Highly recommend Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord

 

Already played a bunch today and I'm hooked. Never played the series before but it's an awesome game. Especially if you're into mideival RPGs.

This is tops on my list but I see on the Steam Forums it needs some work.  

 

So any suggestions on video cards?  Also should I upgrade from Windows 7?  That's what started this mess haha.

It's fun for the first 10 hours, but the game is so unrefined and hollow that it becomes very repetitive. The userbase is dying because online is lame (some classes are way too OP) and the lack of any real campaign. The map gets conquered way too fast, which makes heirs redundant because you can conquer the whole map in one lifetime). There's lots of other little bugs. It's a fun game at its core but it's unfortunately shallow.

Any Game of Thrones mods yet?  Man that made Warband and the whole reason I started playing M&B in the first place.

Upgrade to Win 10 immediately. Win 7 is 10 years old and support just ended, and Win 10 is better in every way anyway.

 

What are your specs other than the video card?

Win 10 is usable once you install OpenShell, uninstall modern apps, and disable the action center.  Once you've performed those steps, it behaves exactly like 7.

Combat in Andromeda is fun, everything else is awful.

Is the choice options good with the whole renegade paragon paradigm. I love watching the renegade play choices unfold haha.

Anyone any good at hearts of iron 3? Ive played it like 70 hours and i cant for the life of me figure out combat. Ive watched countless videos and i just cant get my head wrapped around it. 

 

I understand everything else, but something just isnt clicking with combat.  Played as france a few nights ago, made troops and even put combat on ai. Germany didnt even bother going around. They just blew through the maginot line. 

 

Its not units, its not combat rows. Shouldnt be terrain. Damned paradox games seem so needlessly complex

I thought the concept for the game was cool and it was a good idea to reboot the series, but they really did nothing with it.

 

It was the first Mass Effect game that was truly just an EA production as all the original members of Bioware were gone for Andromeda and it shows.

If it's anything like HoI4 I'm sure Germany has some kind of passive or event that enables bliztkrieg bonuses. Needlessly complex is a great way to describe those games lol.

Yeah, there was so much potential. They could have done anything and gained some favour back after the horrific ME3 ending, but damn did it fall flat.

I've got some friends that PC game so I'm thinking of taking the plunge into this world.  Thing is, I love couch gaming.  Before I drop the cash on a nice 4k 120hz TV, just curious if anyone has PC gamed with a 1080p TV?  Keep in mind this is mostly for low res games like world of warships
