Well, that sucks.  I've had the x52 for barely over a week, and both the T1/T2 and T3/T4 buttons are already broken and non-functional.  Will need to return this one and hope that I have better luck with Newegg customer service than I did last time.  frown

Ouch! Hope it works out.

Well now that I have my PC fully upgraded I'll have to give this a try.... Just put in a Z97 mobo and a i7 4790k (Corsair H90 cooler), 16GB ram and a GTX 970.

The Xbox Live Ultimate Game sale starts this week, so I have my eye on Alien: Isolation and Lords of the Fallen, depending on the depth of discount. Lords of the Fallen has been rumored at $9, so I'm really hoping that turns out to be legit.

If Lords of the Fallen is even close to $10 I'll jump on that as well.  I've wanted to play that but there have been too many other games for me to pick it up.

Lord's is certainly close to $10, its onsale for $9  slywink

Thanks DR!  Will the DS4 or 360 controller work wirelessly (is it bluetooth or what).

Big Picture Mode looks awesome, thanks.

Also, do you know how to change your steam email address?  I thankfully remembered my username and password, but it's connected to an old Comcast email address.

XBox One controllers work quite well too, install the driver from MS and plug it in vi usb cable.

Our HP Envy has worm completely out.  It's time for a new laptop and I will never buy HP again.


i want to hear this story...
Lol, obviously meant worn out, typing on my iphone sometimes gets away from me.

It has always had overheating problems.  I've had it fixed twice already.  The HP I had before this one also overheated.

My mother in law has a HP laptop as well and has not been terribly pleased with it, has had to go back for repair a couple times.

The R7 should allow some decent gaming.

I dunno what blackjack was having trouble with, but I played thru on hard with my Crusader and smashed every boss first try. I hadn't played D3 for quite a while (on PC) and picked it up for xbox one to play with brother and am having a blast.

Well, I hope the new asus I bought is more reliable than the last one.  Barely over two years old. 

Got a RT-N66U.  Thought about going AC but none of my devices support it and the 66 was on sale and available for same-day shipping.  Amazon is awesome for that.

My RT-N16 had a couple of its lan ports go bad a while back, picked up a RT-N66U as well. Great router, first order of business was to put Tomato on it tho.

Alright, I'm really loving my VoiceAttack. Wasn't there some other module or something that people recommended to add to this? I looked but must have missed it.

HCS Voice Packs

The product itself seems pretty awesome, but to really get won over look at the guy's story about how this got developed stemming from him wanting to make it easier for his wife with multiple sclerosis to play games.

Nice! Thanks for the info, got both VA and the HCS pack.

I use one of these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GGTSVU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for Skyping with my bro when we do arena's in WoW, works quite well and I'll be trying VoiceAttack with it on ED.

It will be intimidating to you if you aren't familiar with the genre, but it's not actually overly complex once you see past the layers.

Just get this, it's perfectly serviceable and is what I am using until I can swing a full setup.  $20 joystick

Just hop on mumble when some people are on and it'll be a breeze to figure it out.  There are also plenty of videos available in game as well as tutorials to learn the various aspects of the game.

Ended up ordering one of those instead of a full HOTAS setup, thought about it some more and just decided to go with that while deciding if I'm gonna play long term, if so then I'll drop the big bucks. Should have mine on Sunday. May have to join you guys on mumble, havent really played a space sim since the Wing Commander / Privateer days.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: December 25, 2014, 07:18:18 PM
I'm just gonna wait and get a good HOTAS setup since I intend to use it with Star Citizen as well (Hurry up Mr. Roberts.....)

I so want to get this, got a GTX 970 for xmas, just need a HOTAS setup, looking at the X52. Hopefully soon, I have sooooooo missed good space sim games.

OMG... Saw some footage of this today at Blizzcon and it looked awesome. They even showed a short bit with some updated cgi of a scene with Durotan and Draka. We only have to wait about another year and a half... Can't wait.

Same here, I've been much happier since switching to a nVidia card (660ti) in my gaming PC a ways back, and I also put a cheap 610 in my HTPC which has a AMD A10 7850K cpu with built in R7 gpu which had alot of video stuttering issues.

Cant say as to where would be a good place to  get a gaming PC these days but def not Dell.... I've built my own since the early 90's.

They all should be relatively similar, I have a APC BackUPS 750 I recently had to get a new battery for and its working good down in the basement where I have all my networking gear and HDHomeRun Primes. But I didn't put it on the HTPC / TV since I thought it would be a bit too under powered.

Something like below should do well. I have one on my wish list for my HTPC setup.
