  1. Hello gamers, What are your favourite games with the best sound design or soundtracks? Normally, I find games to have fairly lacklustre audio but every now and then some games really knock the chair from under me. Some of my favourites are: Total War: Warhammer (PC) - This games sound design is awesome... During battles, thunder clouds rumble in the distance, arrows and cannon fire whizzes past the camera, lumbering giants stomp the ground with huge thuds, flying monsters terrorise the skies and swoop down on your troops. Overall it makes the experience very immersive. Creative Assembly put extra effort into making this game sound as good as it looks in my opinion (Although the soundtrack is a little average). even on Youtube it sounds pretty great: Crysis 3 - Not my favourite game of all time but the soundtrack is impactful and well recorded. Sound effects are also top notch. The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion - Awesome soundtrack and probably my favourite RPG (with the witcher 3 a close second). The soundtrack perfectly fits the setting and really makes adventuring through Tamriel a joy. I never really loved Skyrim, but Oblivion will always have a special place in my gaming collection, (and the soundtrack probably plays a big role in that!). The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Great sound design, great soundtrack, great voice acting, great game. A true triple A title worthy of your time. The music really has a way of adding intensity to battles although, after 50 hours of playtime, being yelled at by the Slavic medieval choir wears thin and you will probably be reaching for the volume knob to turn it down during battles. Anyway, that is a few of my faves... What are yours?
  2. I've not seen a thread dedicated to gaming, so here's one for us gamers, we the few who lead the cutting edge in PC technology or consoles. Gaming, it's great fun, strategy, turn based or real time strategy. Puzzles - meh, simulators - not my cup of tea, and for a long time first person shooters made me motion sick, till I spent all weekend going through Modern Warfare 2 and Crysis 3 on my new gaming rig. I'm reminded of the SNA'er who mentioned he is the guy off mission in a game because he's testing the games soundstage by exploding grenades. And then late, well early morning actually, one Saturday I kindly took up thy headphones for Cysis3 and was utterly blown away by the immersive experience, in an eye blink nearly making my $30 yogi headphones the new pinnacle of my gaming experience - if only I'd not previously gamed through the vaf i66's attached to my hk990. Yes, that's right $30 headphones just about surpassing $10k worth of gear... if only I'd known I might have created a budget for headphones. Your gaming experiences, technology, hardware n software & games, talk about them here. When the cars seemed like they were dropping out of the sky after an orbital thermonuclear emp in MW2 I was running round like any Gods fearing man might when faced with a potential apocalypse, and died many a horrific death completing the level. Or battling some 9 year old Korean lad at Starcraft2 - and losing of course cause his apm (actions per minute) is 236 apm, and mine at best is 60 apm. I've played every civilisation game in existence, 1 through V with all expansions, yes gaming likely dropped my gpa by several points - but enhanced my problem solving beyond the 98th percentile (as measured by the student tertiary admissions test stat), can one get a job for being brilliant at games... Apparently not bloody likely, not even as a tester. Doom, the great game that became a, cough cough, average movie. Assassins creed spawned books. Halo, a whole heap of plastic junk, and books too. What's your favourite game? What are you grinding through lately? Which game reveals the brilliance of your desktop hifi? Game On.

  6. Hey guys - I thought I would start a thread to get the hype train going for all new games announced at E3. Personally, I am probably most excited about Star Wars: Battlefront, as I don't have the time to put into single player campaigns - I like being able to get in for a 20 minute shoot before dinner, and then a couple of hours after the family go to bed. DOOM will be a bit of fun, love what Bethesda have been doing of late (namely Wolfenstein) Fallout 4 So, what is everyone looking forward to?

  8. Hi everyone, I have for sale an Astro A50 wireless gaming headset. www.astrogaming.com/a50 It is multi-platform for PC & all consoles & features Dolby Digital 7.1. The headset is used, but it is in virtually new condition & everything works flawlessly. The reason I am selling is because I have recently changed my personal setup to a wired amplifier with a pair of open-backed Sennheisers. Due to this I have no further use for the Astros, even though they are an exceptional headset. These typically sell brand new for $350 & up, so I will be asking $250 or nearest offer & I am willing to post for free within Aus. Cheers guys.

  11. Hi, I was looking at upgrading my old 32" Samsung LCD and was after some advice and this seems like an excellent place to get some. I narrowed it down to the LED range and most likely around the 40" – 42" size. I could push it to 55" but I tend to sit relatively close to the TV so that's probably too big for my lounge. I am however happy to hear advice in the 50"+ range too. The Sony W800A and Samsung F6400 seem good. JB have the F6700 which confused me a bit as it looks like the F7100 series which only come in 46" and above from what I saw on their site. So I assume it's the F6400 with a different case. The Sony apparently has really good input lag (or lack thereof). While I'd mainly be using it for gaming, I'm after something that also has great image quality, colors and good contrast. 3D and internet is really not important. What would you guys suggest? Any models you have that you've been happy with? Sony W800A Lowest input lag which is great for gaming. 2" bigger than the Samsung counterpart. Good color reproduction. Downside is that I noticed some flicker on some scenes that the Samsung didn't have. Samsung F6400/6700 These seem like the same panel to me but the 6700 is apparently a JB exclusive and looks like the 6400 internals on a 7100 case. Colors were nice. Higher input lag than Samsung. Panasonic ET60A Nice colors and decent TV but apparently has some contrast issues and input lag problems. Also came across this which I'm dubious of but found interesting:
