I thought I was a video game geek, but I've only played a handful of games mentioned in this thread

 

Then again, my game of the year last year was Crusder Kings 2, and probably pretty much nobody played it.

It's a very good game, but I think I'm done-ish.  I love the strategic/tactical aspects of the game, but I have 3 problems with it:

1 - I can't stand when I drag our team down.  It's embarrassing, and my reflexes just can't keep up with young people's.

2 - I can't stand when a team drags me down.  I hate going 7/1/21 and losing....

3 - Hell is other people.  How many people have I seen someone lecture/berate teammates then go 5/11/2?

Liked 5.  Loved 6. Played 7, but while I liked it, it also didn't make a ton of sense.  Kind of gave up on it after that.

There's a misconception that IEMs are going to always sound inferior to similarly priced full-sized headphones, and that's just not true. If anything, $200 will get you better sound in the IEM world than with their larger counterparts. As you move up the ranks into summit-fi the gap closes, however. Seems like $1k headphones and IEMs are pretty close in many cases. Like most things in this hobby, it comes down to preference as each form factor has its respective strengths and weaknesses. IEMs do some things better. Headphones others.

 

I appreciate this info, although it complicates my inevitable decision making process.

Fair enough.  I'm leaning that way, mostly because i have to carry a smart phone around anyways, due to family stuff.  It's part of the reason I asked for a Samsung GS3 for xmas.  Now I can USB it to a DAC and bob is my uncle.

 

Now I just need a portable DAC.  And better IEMS.  And....

Speaking of games, is anyone here going to play Hawken? Here ya go: http://www.playhawken.com/#game-info

I miss big stompy mech action. In fact, one of Bioware's first games was the mech game Shattered Steel. Pretty cool in it's time.

 

As for Descent, I still have the level packs for it. Wish Parallax/Volition would reboot it. A "flying FPS" would appeal to a good many new gamers. "Wingnut" is still a fave game character of mine...

If you've beaten 6, 7, 8, and 10, then you've pretty much beaten the best games of the series. :)

What a coincidence, I've been reading about Hawken yesterday. In fact, I was watching this particularly long "let's play" video:

Anyone ever play Chromehounds online? Still the pinnacle of online multiplayer for me.

 

Insane customisation, incredible variety of maps and environments, perfect blend of deep strategy and required skill to execute and an entrenched and dedicated community vying for notoriety.

 

edit: turn the sound down. Cursing in the first 10 seconds.

Welcome to the crazy house.

Could be worse, you don't want to know how much I paid for my Sony EX700 and XBA4. The former is almost disintegrated, and the latter lost me $200 as they lowered the price and not many people want wacky sounding iem's. EX700's are pretty special though, XBA4 is more blessed than special, but still unique I guess. Neither were strictly wise decisions IMO.
