    BF3, i'll meet you on craggy some night. Also with the mods\fixes dark souls is pretty good on pc apart from online being a bit quieter.

    I might get Battlefield later on but I doubt I'll get Dark Souls again.There doesn't seem to be any advantage for having it on PC.My Skyrim shouldn't take too long,I also intend on getting Fallout 3 and New Vegas to complete my Fallout Collection on PC.

    Check out the mods for skyrim\fallout etc on the nexus, there's some pretty cool stuff there.

    I've been watching the Nexus for about two years,drooling over what I could never have.Needless to say,I'm excited.I saw the Vertibird mod and nearly crapped my pants,I love flying aircraft.

    You should try the original Witcher game on pc, it's different you can pretty much do everything with just the basic mouse buttons, gfx might be a bit old but still worth checking out.

    Nope
    I played DayZ a lot and I can tell you that many people don't betray nowadays, but still keep your guard up.
    Also get a hatchet every time, hatchets are deadly against zombies, but weak against players.
    Next always stay crouched, never run unless you are escaping, finally always go for Cherno and Elektro first, then for Northern Airfield.

    Just had a massive forum fail while typing.Don't try to troll me,I know about the idiots hiding in the trees on the hills next to those places.I may be a forum noob but I do my homework when it comes to the do's and don'ts of gaming.

    Dude, I'm an expert DayZ player and i'm giving you tips, Cherno and Elektro might be dangerous, but the loot there is worth it.

    There are also a lot of lovely bandits,waiting to give me a nice hot cup of tea and a** ****.I'll be as far from the coast and those towns as I can be.I'm very paranoid that way.

    its alot safer to just go to Balota and it has higher weapon spawns than the major cities. be sure to look up online maps as they will have all the info you need

    I'd be a lot more likely to check that airfield.The cities are not worth the risk.High risk of death for mediocre loot or medium risk of death for mid-high quality loot?Think I know which is better for a fresh spawn. tongue

    I'm not planning on getting too far inland at first.I'll be getting used to the controls and maybe finding a partner or team.I know how to play in theory,I'll just be putting it into practice.I'll likely look for a low population server and see if I can beat the average life expectancy of an hour.

    I am officially f**king p**sed the hell off.My PC arrived today,I turn it on only to get a no signal message on my display.And when I finally got a hold of a phone,it was 5:30 and the guys who built it were closed.Now it's the weekend and I'll likely have to wait ages just to get support which will probably ask me to mail it right back to be repaired.I'm mad bro,very very mad.

    Overclockers in England.I could check all the parts and cables myself but that'd ruin my chances of having them replaced if those idiots screwed it up.I dropped 1800 Euro on that PC,I'm absolutely furious about the whole situation.I spent the whole morning bouncing off the walls about playing DayZ just to be disappointed.
