    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bannerlord in one week!

    I actually haven't bothered with the beta myself. Didn't even apply. The single player is what Mount and Blade was always about for me, the multiplayer I just couldn't care less. I like recruiting my own armies, watching peasants with pitchforks evolve into knights as they gain more exp, leading...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bannerlord in one week!

    Aye it's on STEAM. It has been on STEAM since late 2016 actually... the game was heavily delayed. It has taken so long to develop because apparently the development team is very small (just like they were when they made Warband), is still essentially an indie studio, and because they were...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bannerlord in one week!

    Hello all, long time no post (about 3 years, sorry lol). Just here to remind you that Bannerlord is releasing on the 31st. It's the long-awaited sequel to Mount and Blade: Warband. It is releasing in early access despite the 8-year long development time but it appears to me pretty much complete...

    Okay, well, thanks for all the advice. You've helped me a lot. I'll be ordering a new graphics card tomorrow.

    I see. I dunno if 1440 would be entirely worth it for me. I may get some value out of it for the new games I'll play, but I do spend a lot of time playing very old (15+ years) games, or grand strategy games such as Crusader Kings where graphics aren't really the point of the game. You know the...

    Would the card you recommended do 1440p? 1080 is one of those things I've been using for so long that it's just normal to me now. I can't imagine anything else. But since I'm not buying a whole new machine I may as well spend the money on giving it a try.

    Alright, I'm sure you're getting bored of me by now but there are a lot of different brands. Could you give me a link to the most suitable one for the rest of my rig? (I promise I'll learn about this eventually so I can do it myself lol).

    Alright, you have convinced me. So what graphics card would you recommend then as an upgrade? I'll probably only buy one if the games I'm waiting for (Bannerlord, RE3 remake, Final Fantasy 7 remake, couple others) don't perform well on the current loadout I have. I'm not so bothered about 1440p...

    I dunno... my main problem is that I don't have a spare anymore. I gave it away to someone in need (the one in my sig, the "previous PCS PC"). I always like to have a spare for emergencies. I'm an addict you see. How much would you say I'd need to spend for something that's an upgrade to this...

    Yes but the paranoia! Seriously though... my PC's get used for 12 hours a day. Not just left switched on, actually used for 12 hours per day. My PC's age faster than a normal person's PC.

    Hmm, I hadn't considered potential gaming-related coronavirus issues. I'll definitely get it ordered on Monday. I was mostly worried about my current one (which is 3 years and 4 months old) deciding to die on me in the coming weeks as all the great games I'm looking forward to start coming...

    Alright then, thanks my dude. Unless somebody has any objections to that build I'll order it in the next few days (probably Monday when I can get to the bank and put some cash in there).

    That looks good too. Yeah, I do my gaming at 1080p and 60 FPS. I don't mind turning graphics down to high and medium, it's the 60 FPS that matters most to me. I've never used an AMD processor though. So the one you linked... is it a lot better than the one I liked or about the same but cheaper...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Help me pick a PC

    My current one (in my signature) is still working fine but it is 3 and a half years old now and it might be time to retire it as a spare and upgrade. Plus at this age you never know when they could decide to drop dead on you and I don't want that to happen the day Bannerlord releases after I...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Does PCspecialist create a user password for the PC?

    Guys, the frustration is over 9000. I'm ready to throw my PC through the window. Today I managed to pick up a virus - the first virus I've had in about 10 years. It keeps randomly redirecting my browser to various websites whenever I click on anything on the internet, like an article for a news...
