PC GAMES thread - whatcha playin'? [NO SPOILERS UNLESS TAGGED]

Even though it got destroyed by critics, I'm playing through AC unity right now and I really like it. Runs smoother than black flag did for me too, I dunno what was the deal with all the griping about it being unoptimized. It requires a powerful GPU but it looks amazing and doesn't stutter.

Also just got a g-sync monitor and man, I want this on every display. Like no more need to worry about maintaining over 60fps to avoid stutters, still nice and smooth even if the fps fluctuate.

Started playing Zombi today (PC port of the Wii U game ZombiU). Not bad. It may not look all that great but it is creepy, some good jump scares, I like that the game does NOT pause when you loot/check inventory. Only a couple hours in but came close to dying a few times.

Have it on Wii U. It is kind of fun when you die since you come back as a totally new person, but can go back and reclaim your backpack from your last character. Not sure if my Zombi corpse had moved on, but I thought that was a fun twist to the game.

I know the knight enchanter is OP, but damn the other characters are just way too squishy! The only thing that sucks is I'm stuck in this dungeon, getting all this loot and I'm not going to be able to do anything with it until the DLC is complete so what's the point of getting it if I can't use it to make myself more powerful with the current DLC?
I'm renting it on ps4, is the interface different on pc? They limit your abilities to 8 on a customizable hot key list. It's pretty lame having to choose which spells you want at a give time.

I'm using a wireless 360 controller as I really can't use a kb/m for any length of time. That being said, the game recognizes it and defaults to having four abilities mapped to XYAB then using L2 as a modifier it opens up four more abilities for XYAB. I find it to be plenty and it gives you the option of switching out abilities if/when you get bored. The other thing I like about the game (and where it stands above Witcher 3 even) is the ability to switch between characters at any time. Bored of the mage? Switch to the tank. Bored again? Switch to the archer rogue or stabby stab rogue. Having the ability to reset all the talents as well also adds to the replayability. I have over 260 hours in the game between rerolls and DLC. It's a worthy game, IMHO, and looks great in 2560x1080 super wide.

Never have I been so pleased to be playing a multiplayer game on the PC, not the Xbox... because I don't want people hearing my constant swearing like they would with the Kinect.

Actually picked up Minecraft again after a long hiatus. Playing FTB Horizons II - Daybreaker mod pack. Pretty damn fun

Lol I don't even know what it is about this game. I don't even like soccer! But it's just so damn fun to play I can't stop.
