Maaan Metroid is my fav series but have never played Metroid 2. Really need to get AM2R.

Speaking of, playing Metro Redux at the mo. Never played either before. Liking 2033 - getting a wee bit of a metroid vibe from the atmosphere.

I've been playing a bit of Intrusion 2 in my spare time. It's basically metal slug but made by Russian. Would recommend

skyrim remaster tomoro yeeeeeeeeeee. normally i fucking hate remasters, especially ones of recent games, especially ones that look fine on pc already but i have been wanting to do another play through for a while, also it was free on pc since already owning og legendary edition which was only like 15$ on sale anyway. sick.

Not really, most of my friends and my clan are on PS4. I've got a 3.2 i7 w/ 64GB Ram and 2x 1070s at work so I might grab a copy for PC (it's only $10) and teach you a lesson for your sass on my lunch break deez!

How're you enjoying the mediocre 'upgrade'?

Not full of hate for this, once the mods come out for it and make use of the 64bitness it's going to be great, but fuck, they really couldn't be bothered upgrading even a single tiny thing while they were at it huh. I couldn't play without SkyUI anymore so I don't really have a choice anyway.
Nice of them to give it away for free to most peeps too

ummm the upgrade is pretty meh if you were already playing on ultra, on console it will prob be a decent jump. but considering it was free i'm happy enough with the improved lighting and shit, i would have been pissed if i paid anything for it..

and yeah i've already put it down until we get skyui, the standard one is just so fucking aids after getting used to the mod.

Just the thought of the OG inventory UI gives me a headache :(
And I play with a controller so they really have no excuse

Even meaner. These games RULE. Pretty much everything I want in a WWII FPS. Some story-based expansion packs would be boss.

i5 processor is alright! 3gb gfx 'will do'. If it doesn't already have an SSD then get that sorted and she'll hum along reeeal nice. You should be able to play most games that are coming out on low quality, and maybe even some on high. Older games will be fuckin' sweet as I reckon. Especially if you get an SSD for windows and installations. It will make a huge difference. You can get an 256gb SSD for $149-$199 now. Almost goes without saying that at least 8GB of DDR3 RAM or better would suit you well...

Apparently Steam cracked down on game developers being a bit loose with their descriptions/tags or something and it'll be back up soon. But if you want it right now you can purchase a key through trusty ol' Humble Bundle and then activate that in Steam:
