  1. Elite Dangerous

    So this is currently going cheap on Steam and a few of us have picked it up: https://store.steampowered.com/app/359320/Elite_Dangerous/ There's been talk on Discord, but that might get lost. So what do I need to know before I fire it up? Any major choices at the start that are crucial?

    And yet not surprising.

    Well now that I've got the keyboard upgrade out of the road I'm considering changing out the original G5 that has also served me for about nine years. So I suppose I'm curious as to what others use? I need a few buttons on the side, and I do like having the mouse wheel tilt for different actions (that's what I use to change weapons in most games instead of scrolling the actual wheel itself). I don't generally use the sensitivity buttons, other than to usually assign some other function to them (such as special nade in CoD). The G5 does come with weights, but I'm not sure that's ever really affected my gaming. So what does everyone else use?

    Right family, wrong Webb. Dylan. Chris has just fallen off my computer chair with Josh and gone through my window...
  5. Gaming And Software Sales

    I'd still be willing, haha. Decro and I tried that back with Medieval 2: Total War I think, but it was pretty fiddly shared files on Dropbox etc.
  6. Mouse

    Yeah I've been on the Logitech bandwagon for 13 years now. The only device to die on me was a G15 keyboard which had a red wine incident (not me).

    Excuse me, where's my XFire message?!
  8. Gaming And Software Sales

    I've only played a little bit of Civ V. I was not very good at it. But this seems like a very good game to offer for free. I'd be interested in some multiplayer.
  9. Battlefield 4

    Yeah fantastic night. A good bit of fun.
  10. Grand Theft Auto V

    People may not be aware, but GTA V is now free on the Epic store for a short time.
  11. Battlefield 4

    I am very interested.
  12. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    I'm very glad to see hardware bans in too. That is terrific.
  13. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    Oh yes, I hadn't even thought of that with Warzone. Sounds excellent.
  14. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    I'm not going to lie, it's tempting. Maybe when I know for sure if football is canned for the year.
  15. Tech News

    Yeah it was just starting to become more popular outside of Apple. There's also now compatibility with USB in some way, although I can't remember all the details there (and I don't think the USB version suffers from this issue).

    So Wi-Fi is changing its naming conventions, which probably makes sense from a consumer point of view: https://au.pcmag.com/news/58971/what-is-wi-fi-6-new-wi-fi-names-explained I didn't actually realise they had been through all of the letters once and are about to complete a second lap. I though 802.11ac was just because they were weird at naming things.
  17. General TV Show Discussion And Review

    Look, my personal view is yes. But you also know I'm easy to please.
  18. Tech News

    A major issue found in Thunderbolt. https://www.itnews.com.au/news/unfixable-thunderbolt-flaws-bypass-computer-access-security-548003
  19. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    Very interesting to know. I'll keep an eye out for it on sale.
  20. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Oh God. I'm worried this isn't a joke: http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/News/321320 ... -wars.aspx http://thewaltdisneycompany.com/disney- ... asfilm-ltd And: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars_Episode_7 This is going to likely ruin most of the novels written. Not to mention ruin my blu ray collection that I finally went out and bought. I am not sure this is a good thing.
  21. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    I should point out in the 16 odd years I've known Mini I've never been able to convince him to take up CoD.
  22. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    Thoughts on the longevity?
  23. XCOM 2

    I did see you in XCOM yesterday. I need to give War Of The Chosen a go, and then I'll move onto Chimera Squad. Do they add content to each other, or is Chimera Squad completely separate? I've just started Phantom Doctrine, as after finishing Homeland I wanted to get into something spy related.
  24. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    I'd say go for it. Not sure if a list exists somewhere of important/best episodes from each season - that could allow you to shortcut a little bit perhaps.
  25. General TV Show Discussion And Review

    I've just finished the latest and final season of Homeland. Boy oh boy what a ride. Definitely one of my favourite series. It only took me a few days to get through as I just had to keep watching.
