Art history eh

What kind of stuff do you guys learn in there? I'm kinda curious honestly, if you don't mind :p
Basically, we learn about the different time periods, styles, as well as the famous artists and and noteworthy works. My class is History of Western Art, Renaissance through Modern Periods.

I've always wanted to give Steam a try, lol.

Mmm... GTA 4, I played the main game and the other 2 side games (Gay tony and that biker gang) on my cousin's PS3. I actually had to help him complete the missions cos he sucks at it.

I much prefer console gaming to PC gaming if only because I don't have to worry about whether the specs of my computer are right to play a certain game or not.

At the moment, I only have a DS lite and a laptop, so I'd prefer PC gaming. However, my laptop is quite old now (5 years!) and can't run most current games.

I used to play PC games such as GunBound, O2Jam and a little of League of Legends before, but not any more. I also hardly play my DS Lite as classes and assignments are filling up my days. If I do play Pokemon, it'll be on an emulator on my laptop as my DS is not accessible at the moment.

If not PC or DS games, I like playing fighting or racing games on my old PS2 with my brother. Yes, I'm really behind in all the technology advancements with PS3 and XBox 360 out for ages, but I don't mind and it's better than nothing. xD

I wish I could play my DS again :c It's been so long since I've laid eyes on it. More than a year methinks. I miss that thing.

I want to play Spyro again! It's those types of games that I like, the ones which you get to move around and attack enemies with powerful abilities and do stuff. :3 I've completed Spyro a gazillion times before, but it never gets old <33

This is a topic that I can get in. I used to be a PC gamer myself, now I'm an Xbox gamer.

What I'd like to get would be Bioshock Infinite, which comes out in less than a week. Unfortunately, it's very likely that I won't have the money for it until my next paycheck...

CRYI isn't that accurate. For a lot of games it is. I can't remember the specific games, but a few times it told me that a game wouldn't work at all on my computer, yet it ended up running just fine.

I've been thinking of doing another playthrough of Infinite Space. Still - Not sure what I could do differently from other playthroughs. Besides using different ships or module setups, nothing different I really could do. My usual setup is a battleship forward (Flagship), two combat cruisers center, one carrier/cruiser or destroyer center, and a carrier rear.

Anyway, I've been spending most of my time playing Sins of a Solar Empire. One of the best games ever. Even better - using the 7DS mod for it. It adds many more factions to the game. The Empire is one of them.

Edit - Here's the intro for Soase Rebellion

@X:
Meh, sorry, seems kinda generic to me. :I
Sides, when I play a war game it's most likely Valkyria Chronicles.

@Synerjee:
Spyro, yeah!
The original Spyro has, and always will, a high place on my list of greatest games ever.

Had a snowstorm hit us a few days ago. Snow is still in the process of melting away. Not much of it melted, tho.

Can You Run It isn't very reliable when it comes to HOW WELL the game will run on you comp, but it's useful for getting something of an idea on whether or not the game will even run on the comp. It does have a few problems that need to be fixed, though.

It's not always accurate, but it hasn't royally screwed me over. Yet.

Well, that depends.

Well, Can You Run It usually tells you what your specs are whenever you run it against a game in their database. You can also go onto Computer, then check System Properties to see your comp's performance rating.

As per recommendations, based on your preferences:

- System Shock 2 (can be found at GoG.com)
- Fallout: New Vegas (Action RPG/Shooter); I also recommend the old Fallout games, they aren't shooters, but they're damn fine RPGs
- Quake series
- Doom series
- Half-Life 2
- Bioshock
- Left 4 Dead 2
