    Anthem

    Anyone playing Anthem? Normally I eschew anything from EA, they have a terrible track record these days. But I did play the demo and found "something" compelling about it. Perhaps it's the faux Ironman feel of flying around and shooting. It's definitely a rushed product though, there's a lot of bugs currently, and some UI issues, but the core gameplay loop is pretty fun. Anyone playing, I'd love to hear your opinions.

    Anthem

    I'm playing it now. And I have to admit, aside from the huge trepidation from the massed negative reviews, it really isn't all that bad. Or should I say, there's something compelling about it that makes me want to play it despite the bugs that crop up occasionally, or the weird design choices I don't agree with.

    Anthem

    I've heard the same things about the engine, and had exactly the same response going into the 1st cave in the tutorial mission. I'd played during the beta and open beta demo weekends. I think it's a diamond in the rough, but currently more rough than diamond. I'll be playing on the 22nd, for sure, but unless there's a LOT of fixes and changes, I think it'll die pretty quickly, since there's a lot of lacklustre things about what is fundamentally a pretty bog standard loot shooter with some pretty graphics.

    SSD for Server OS drive

    Well, one distinct advantage of a SSD drive for the OS: It'll boot faster.
  5. Hey guys, I bang on about this because I'm used to it, but in Australia, we have various shops, generally run by asians, who sell computer parts at almost wholesale, due to buying their stock in bulk. They're pretty much a pc parts warehouse. They're basically a super cheap way to build your pc, as long as you know what you need to buy. Does Canada subscribe to this business model in any way? Are there any shops in Calgary that are basically a warehouse full of pc parts that sell to the general public for minimal markup? I COULD use the likes of amazon, but hey, why spend a buck when you can save a buck?

    General Free Games Thread

    Hmm, two games I used to high level play.... Kinda wish I still PC gamed.
  7. Hi guys, When I moved from Australia to Canada, I left behind all my audio gear, since the voltages are different, and I wasn't sure how the gear would fare, even with voltage regulators, since the phase is also different. I had a Cambridge Audio DacMagic+, a Talisman T-33H and some Alessandro MS-Pros. I'd love to get another source and headphone amp, but unlike Australia, where you've got the utterly stellar headphonics, I'm not sure where to source my gear here. I'm in Alberta, and would love to know of any audio shops in Calgary, or a decent online store. Any help?
  8. Soooo..... nuthin? Dang. Well, in all seriousness, headphones.com.au is freakin' awesome. Seems like a huge gap in the market here if nothing exists of similar ilk.
  9. As title sez. Anyone in Canada with a clear sky, poke your head outside now, the moon's being munched for the last time this decade. Going to last around 4 hours, started at 8:32PM -7GMT.
  10. Been listening to Igorrr lately. If you're into electronica, and you like heavy and weird, he's worth a listen. Start with "Double Monk" https://play.google.com/store/music/artist/Igorrr?id=Af3aacwmonuvqnglj454wxwg36y
  11. Hi guys, been a member of overclockers.com.au (yeah, an Aussie version of OCC) for 13 years, but since I've moved to Canada I've decided to find a similarly like-minded group, so here I am! Live in Canmore, AB. Used to be a heavy gamer and streamer, but I'm trying to give it up to be less of a procrastinator. Spent about a decade doing IT, from helpdesk to sysadmin, decided users are the worst so going to switch to something less "help the user" orientated when my work permit comes through. Ride motorbikes, can rebuild an engine, love to shoot, can't fucken snowboard yet (not enough snow for me to bother spending the cash to tool up to give it a go yet) and play bass when I'm bored. Hope to see you guys around. Fez out! edit: Am I missing something regarding user profiles? Or is there a timer before I can adjust my avatar, sig, birthday, location, etc etc?

    New to OCC, not new to overclocking.

    Bikes! (Until restrictions lifted, I'll have to just post a link to the image, not a direct image link itself.) https://imgur.com/T6NFrKu
