I got Starcraft 2 through the post this morning as a prize for being EG's most helpfulest (quiet you) and it only took the better half of 2 hours to install and update.

LOL you really won that? :D

Similar story with BF3 I'd say (I can run it too! Albeit on low!). Certainly an hour anyway (although I was doing other stuff).

If any more publishers want to make their own Steam-like client that wants to sit in my system tray, please fuck off. Its bad enough you cant get away with just a volume icon these days.

I wanted to like BF3 so badly, but a culmination of Origin, the abysmal single player, co-op and finally multiplayer put pay to that. What a complete heap of shit that game is.

Is multiplayer not so hot then? Must admit, I've not even played the Xbox version yet. Waited for the Karkand expansion, had a quick play and it just didnt look or feel right, but not played it enough to make a judgement call.

How is worse than BF2? I know they did something with the Squad Commander role, but I dont think we ever really used that in the old days.

I did an hour of multiplayer on the 360 and didn't get on with it. But then that didn't really surprise me as Bad Company 1 and 2 both did nothing for me either.

I'm a CoD fanboy.

Bad Company (even though I loved the second) isnt real Battlefield.

Your experience mirrors mine in reverse though. Run and gun just isnt my style...

Damn, SC2 is nice gift for winning a forum award, that game is just totally resistant to price drops. I keep meaning to buy it, but between that and still enjoying the original I haven't got round to it yet.

How's this coming Furbs, new GPU on the horizon yet?

You inspired me too you sod, got a brand spanking new GTX 570 and 8gig of 1600mhz RAM and it eats Arma for breakfast (and pretty much everything else). The (decent, I should stress) EG lads, a few of which are here already anyway are showing some interest, and there's some over at subsim too, so I reckon we could have something set up for next week, or the week after?

1080p gaming. GTX 770 or stretch to a 780 for a bit of future proofing?

Went for the 770 in the end but I've now been given permission to put a bit away regularly for a living room PC (Steam in big screen mode). Aiming for a white Fractal Node 304 case and I was thinking about a 970GTX. However, an offer came up for a Asus Strix 980 for 349 and I bit. That'll go in the Node but until I get the rest of the cash together, it's replacing my 770 in my main PC :D

Bloody hell though, it's a big heavy card. Can't believe it's cooler and uses less power than the 770!
