I don't know if many people here have played or play RUST, but I've been really into it for few weeks and wanted to track my experiences and discuss with folks if anyone is interested.  Feel free to chime in if you like.  I'm currently playing on a very small server, but quite active (search justagame in the server browser).  IGN pacov.  I don't currently plan on streaming but might do so for raids.   For folks that played Rust some time back, they rec...

Update 5/25/2017 This thread is all done.  I've lost interest in jibba jibbing here, but its been fun.  Thanks for all the memories.  I am streaming from time to time on twitch - generally just when I'm trying hard in ranked though.  If interested, you can check that out here: Well, I started a thread back in Dec 2011 that’s seen a lot of activity (some 922,000 views over the course of a few years apparently...)...

I'll be posting a write up sometime in the next day.  Just wanted to create a thread so I'd be sure to follow up.  Random comment 1 - I'm pacov.  I came to follow and love SD via Demigod.  After the impulse sale, the performance on the DG forums for posting has been rot.  Help me ob1.  That said, I usually post through joe user after realizing this. Anyway, the short version is that my experience with windows 8 was about what I thought it would be....

Ah Stardock - foolish, foolish Stardock.  You went too far when you choose to capitalize on the amazing work of Rebellion studios by calling your game Sins of a Solar Empire:  Rebellion.  Fools.  We all know that seeing the word Rebellion immediately causes all of us to think of Rebellion studios.  We then immediately purchase whatever content has the name Rebellion in it because we think its a product of Rebellion studios.  You are terrible, terrible, people Stardo...

I'm generally not one to bitch about such things, but please look at the following picture. I'm sure you can agree that the ads are a little bit of overkill.  Could we either have them immediately following the OP or at the end of the replies?  Eg not both? I'm a fan of you folks advertising on your site (I mean, duh), but I'm not a fan of ridiculous overkill...which is what this comes across to me as (eg annoying).  I'm pretty sure you'll agree with...

I've been looking over the net and haven't found an answer for this one yet.  Figured I'd take a shot here. So, I picked up an ivy bridge cpu and the asus P8Z77-V Pro motherboard.  I also picked up a nice SSD.  Anyway, the motherboard has the intel sata 6 interface and an additional sata 6 interface via the ASMedia® PCIe SATA controller . Should I be using the intel sata 6 interface or the asmedia one for best performance?  I'm not running a raid set...

I'm streaming a bit tonight.  Check it out if you like.  Nothing super exciting, but you can probably watch me either do well or fail. Note - not for profit or any such rot - just figured out how to stream

Most of you that follow the forums here know me from posts on Demigod and League of Legends.  For those that don’t, I’m generally a very hard core, competitive player in DotA (MOBA) style games.  They are my video game bread and butter.  That said, the past few days of gaming have me thinking on a topic that’s come up many times in the past for me:  being a good sport.  For me, its not the easiest thing to balance.  By nature, I’m not a very ...

Just saw this over at slick deals and picked it up. Dead Island (PC) is on sale for $9.99 at new egg (free shipping/no tax).  Not sure if this is just a one day deal or what exactly, so check this out asap if you've been wanting this.  I believe this is the retail packaging, but you can likely register it through steam and download if that's your preference.  Here's a link to the deal directly:

So, this might be a silly post, but I'm hoping it might be encouraging to the devs (after a fashion anyway).  You know how there are several moments in history where you remember where you were and what you were doing when things happened?  On the extreme negative, I'd wager many of us know exactly where we were and what we did on Sept 11.  Things like that are etched in our brains.  Switching extremely quickly to the positive (), there are many other things that a...

Warhammer 40K: Space Marine $12.50 - registers on Steam I've been waiting for a good deal on this one and it has arrived.  Just saw this over at slick deals.  Cheapest price yet. You can get it a  Site is reputable (only heard good things over on slick deals).  You'll get the serial and can then register that on Steam and download direct from Steam. Here's a link to the deal:
