The soundpacks are for the thing in that video, where it's voice activated (and reads back to you).

Not a requirement at all, but it does look pretty neat.

Tomorrow I am planning on working on getting it all setup right and hopefully making it all work.

I've been so out of touch with what's going on in gaming that it wasn't until Thursday that I discovered that the Resident Evil remake made its way to PC.

It is great to have a quality port of this and part 4. I hope they bring on Resident Evil Zero. Quality ports of 2, 3 and Code Veronica would be nice as well, though they will look extremely dated as I doubt it's worthwhile for Capcom to retouch those in a significant manner.

I've got to say that I still find this game immensely enjoyable to play. Perhaps some of it is nostalgia; when the original was first released it made an even bigger impact on me than Doom.

@bd2003 I think you got rid of your Oculus rift to soon. Elite Dangerous would be perfect with it! This was used with Oculus rift.

UNREAL! The closest I've ever been to actually feeling like I'm in space. I can't wait to play the inevitable Oculus Rift version of Mass Effect trilogy this way. It could be absolutely spellbinding. And play like a completely new game.

Picked this up for my Son and I. Pretty good for an early release game.

So far so good with Homeworld Remastered. A few issues and changes from original, but overall a great way to relive college!

So I know I have been hyping Elite Dangerous quite a bit. Just thought I would add that I am getting this delivered tomorrow!

Nice. I've got the X52 Pro. It's awesome though collecting dust as I haven't used it in some time.

I have that exact same set. And the Saitek Joystick too. I absolutely love them. You will have a blast with them. They are very versatile and responsive.

Well I had a few hours with the X52 and the Elite Dangerous game had a Option already setup for that Flight stick so it was pretty good out of the box for the game. I did install the Saitek Smart Technology (SST) to let me further customize even more and have a profile setup for ED (Elite Dangerous) that gives me a few more options then what the game does. Hell I know people that have further profiles that Mode 1 is for flight, Mode 2 is combat, and Mode 3 (something else). I don't dogfight so I don't need mode 2, but I'm tempted in downloading one of those profiles and giving it a try anyways. Now the sad part is I am thinking how can I get this to go dual screen and build a cockpit Here is an image of the Sticks with the game startup (kind of crappy, but gives you an idea of the size).

As you and I discussed on PM...I used this combo a lot with my old Win XP/NVidia setup. Especially for Advent Rising. In that Game I used Mode 1 like you for flight. I used mode 2 for combat in some situations along with my Saitek Joystick. And I used mode 3 for driving land based combat vehicles almost exclusively.

The setup I use on my cheap HOTAS X basically sets up shift buttons for things like that, using Elite: Dangerous' built in support.

But considering that Elite isn't on Steam, maybe it should be split off into its own thread?

Downloaded Path of Exile last night.... Don't do it it's a trap!! damn addicting game so far. Loving the loot drops and the graphics are pretty good. From what I can tell for a free game there is nothing you need to buy to advance the game so far. Honestly I kept hearing this is what Diablo 3 should have been, and I hate to say I think I agree with it. I like how you can customize the magic/skill system to slots to your armor and gear. Over all It made me stay up way to late lat night (3:30am) after wanting to just do a quick check on it... Yea right I'm a dumb Ass for thinking that.

I'm probably just not remembering very well, but Hotline Miami 2 feels like a much steeper ramp up in difficulty than I remember with the original. Still enjoying it a ton though.
