I’ve had my new gaming machine now for about a month and I’m loving it. My old computer was no slouch but it’s fantastic to see my old games come to life again. The immersion levels achievable with silky smooth frame rates and bright crisp graphics can’t be beat. It helps you stay in the game, in the role, longer. For me, that is an indispensable part of the experience.
Current games I have on the go include:
+ Dishonored (thanks to Meaghan as an ad hoc gift)
+ Hitman Absolution (thanks to Meaghan for Christmas)
+ Assassin’s Creed 1 (with the intent of playing through the entire series again)
+ Borderlands 1 (so I can play the first story before staring on number 2)
+ Dead Island (thanks to my awesome friend James T. for the Steam gift.)
+ Dungeon Defenders
+ World of Warcraft
I’m playing a handful of others on and off. I’m a bit ADD with games this year. I still like to see them to completion but I tend to jump around a lot more than I used to. Everything is so instantly available that it’s hard to stay focused.
The price of games on Steam helps a lot too. It’s great to be able to pick up one year old titles for less than half their original price, sometimes even better. I bought a lot of games during this year’s holiday sale. Even though I knew I wouldn’t play them right away the price was too good to pass up.
Pictures of the rig coming soon.
