Yeah, fuck quick-time events. Too often, I think it's safe for me to grab my beer but nope, didn't hit X fast enough and died.

Haha alright I added the two of you(Rock Chucker). I've only fought against bots so far =}
I found myself sometimes having problems but luckily only in the rocket jumping/ strafe jumping training. My mouse would kind of fuck up and I get stuck staring at the ground or stuck launching rockets at the ground & I can't get out of it. I really hope that doesn't happen to me in game.

If Far Cry 2 is indicative of anything, Far Cry 3 is going to be amazing.

Anyone got any recommendations for (gaming) mousepads?

Preferably with badass artwork haha.

EDIT: fuck it, ordered a Zowie Swift. Seems to be reviewed as one of the best hard mousepads on the market now, especially for FPS players.

you homos have those gel wrist support things on your mouspads? my shit gets fatigued after 13 or so hours. also, my acne is getting out of control. help.

anyway- grabbed fear 3, or F.3.A.R if you will, off steam for 8 whole USD. the story and cutscenes are god-awful, but the gameplay and graphics are fantastic. i enjoy how each little "mission" is re-playable with the bonuses you can unlock. the sound and creepy shit that jumps out at you was surprisingly gory and creeptastic with all my lights off and headphones on.

haven't checked out the multiplayer yet, can't imagine it will be stellar, but co-op will probably be great.

Haha mine is pretty generic:



Found it around the house, it's a wireless USB type. Actually feels pretty damn good on Quake but if I mess around with it on TF2, it's not so good. Also don't use a mouse pad(moves around a wooden desk).

Been using the MX518 respectively MX500 for ages, and if my current one fails, I'll buy it again.

The g400 looks like it has a form identical to the MX518. The g300 obviously is designed to be used by either right or left handers, which usually isn't the best thing.

Get a WMO and overclock it to 500hz.
Or get a Razer Abyssus.

Definitely get a mousepad :P


Anyone here playing Diablo3 in the US?

Yeah, the Mx518 is suppose to be it's predecessor. I'll go with that, thanks!


I was looking at Steel Series mice & Razer 'Deathadder' (my 2nd favorite of the 3) but the Logitech for $35-40 sounds good to me.
Oh, and I'll get the same mouse pad that was mentioned in the previous page :)

The latest Assassin's Creed game to me was a bit of a letdown. The story kind of made no sense and it was so anti climactic that the finished product just felt like nothing more than a repeat of the one before it.

However the new one that's set to come out later this fall looks fucking stunning! I really love what they're doing with the main protagonist! And the fact that it's being set during the American revolution kinda gives me a boner! I'm so stoked for this one!
