In Topic: What games are people playing these days!?

11 December 2017 - 03:07 PM

I technically finished this game a month ago but I'm procrastinating so:

Spec Ops the Line is outrageously good -- it might only work for gamers who are acquainted with the tropes of military shooter games but if you are, this is an instant classic. The actual gameplay mechanics are bland but all I can say without spoiling anything is that there are huge payoffs for soldiering through to the end. It's a major emotional experience.

Put it on your wishlist!

Unless apple sticks some real GPU power in an iMac us mortals can afford.......why bother. Hell for the price of an iMac you would want you can get your self a mini, an air, and have enough change left over for a wii u or an xbox or something.

I think I am going to follow this advice. I am puttering along with a late 2011 15" MBP and it can still mange to run XCOM2 albeit with some huffing and puffing. When it finally kicks out, I am hoping a new/refurbished Mac mini will seem face-meltingly fast by comparison, even with an integrated GPU. The Air can then take care of any mobile, work-related document tinkering and web browsing.

SOME MORE TIME AND THOUGHTS AND A LITTLE RESEARCH LATER: That integrated graphics :blarf:! The best thing for my lite gaming might be to just pick up a refurbished 27" iMac for under $1500.
