For those in the NOVA area still looking for a new graphics card and have the means necessary - I was just at Microcenter an hour ago and they had 4 RTX 3080Ti cards in stock. The clerk working that area had to re-assure me that I wasn't seeing things and that there were indeed there, and for sale... for $1600 ea.

I've been playing nothing but the Mass effect trilogy legendary edition. It's been really great to go back to this universe again. Also it comes with all of the DLC, so I'm experiencing some Mass effect content for the first time which is super exciting.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

I like how the trailer is full of little homages to all the infuriating crazy bullshit we used to do on servers and get banned.

128 player maps! Hopefully they go back to their roots and tone down the arcadey shit they've been doing for the past couple. I hope it moves toward a faster paced less milsimmy ArmA. That way I can just pop in and play a few games without the commitment or the BS of KotH mode.

Elden Ring just got a trailer drop, looks like dark souls with some george rr martin infusion, hope its not all weiners like his books are.

Battlefield looks odd never been a big fan of future shooters but I love battlefield. Interesting how on consoles itll be $70 and on PC $60 considering it has no campaign or BR.

Loving Valhalla so far 55 hours in and probably not near halfway even as I'm doing everything in a zone before moving on and its so much fun. Wish they had more armor and weapon variants and a one handed sword but oh well, great story and fun game.

Go Coogs, Go Hokies.

I played parts of Mass Effect (1) on Xbox 360 but never finished it and never played any of the other games. Picked up the Trilogy on PC and just finished 1. The final mission and ending was pretty sweet! Now on to ME2.

My biggest complaint about 1 is that the game reused so many assets that so many areas looked the same as others and it also made finding your way around some locations really confusing because everything looked the same. The game definitely showed its age in that regard.

I just play too much car soccer.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

My and the bois are waiting on Starbase to come out. It just got delayed to July 29 tho. If you've ever played Starmade, it's like that except with way more mechanics and you can board/invade ships

If you've never played Starmade, it's like pvp minecraft...in SPACE

They'll really get after ya

About to finish up Bioshock after getting it through PS+. I hadn't played the game in probably 10 years and I can still say I highly recommend it.

The original bioshock is my favorite game of all time. So good.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

I'm going to follow up with Bioshock 2 when I'm finished, but really I'm only doing it so I can get to Infinite. I remember 2 not being nearly as good as the original.

I think 2 is still a good game, but it's hard to live up to the first one. Infinite does though.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

new halo online trailer

Looks like they are borrowing grappling hooks from titanfall

Forza Horizon 5 due in early November.

Really got into FH4 over the past year, so this one has me excited

Didnt get to watch much of E3 this year again and cant say it sounds like much was missed in the way of major announcements due to Covid most projects are simply pushed back it seems. Gonna look into the Starfield bit but again bethesda doesnt bring alot of new stuff up and I wonder if we will ever see ES6 or if its a big long joke and itll be skyrim special edition 2.

Kicking myself in the ass for not buying a 1660 Ti last fall when they were still reasonably priced. As it is, my 7870 is now 9 generations old and new games are pretty much out of reach until I upgrade. When that'll be...who knows?

BF2042 looks pretty interesting though. 1942 was obviously the best and Battlefield2 pretty good as well. Definitely prefer that series over the constant COD refreshes.

This is just a fantastic trailer

I don't know what Starfield is, but I must own it.

Maybe by the time the game comes out in Nov '22, we'll all finally have a new graphics card....

I'm absolutely obsessed with the new Chivalry game. One of the best MP sequels in years. Takes what the first does and makes it better. New mechanics and still keeps the feeling of absolute chaos the first did.

Plus it's always fun when you get to have a "Butcher of Blavakin" moment and cut and dance through like 10 people in 30 seconds.

So, who's going in on that new Xbox Mini Fridge?

...I don't understand it.

Am hyped for Farcry 6, Battlefield, and FH5 though.

Probably not since I have a full sized fridge devoted to refreshments while playing games about 5 feet from the xbox. But it looks fantastic for those that want a fridge that looks like their refrigerator styled xbox series x.

New gameplay trailer for Breath of the Wild 2 out and man that has me excited.

I love the commitment MS has to Game Pass right now. Can't wait to finally play Hades once it hits the service. Darkest Dungeon finally became available last week and I love that game.

Hades is soooo good. I'm approaching 100 hours played in it.
