    Dragon Age Origins low fps

    With that rig you should be able to run DA:O with maximum settings at more fps than you'd care for. Is your PC running fine otherwise? Other games? High-quality videos? Make sure you have the newest drivers. Make sure you have DirectX up-to-date...

    The rev meter: What's that about?

    What the hell are you talking about. One word: manual transmission. And I'd prefer it on cars with automatic transmission too, so I don't end up driving on gear x, when with a bit of more revs I could be on x+1, and therefore on lower revs and spending less fuel. captcha. Yeah, I'm so through...

    So What Do You Guys Think of the Slender Man Movie That was Funded by Kickstarter?

    Since you asked, not interested in the myth at all, nor anything even related to slender man, at any point. I do like when kickstarter works the way it should, though.

    What are your favourite films guys?

    Monty Python's Flying Circus Leon Revolver 25th Hour Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind Those are the first that come to mind. edit: captcha. fucking captcha. I've been a paying subscriber for this site for a few years. I ended that because of the forums turning to thoughtless crap...

    Male clothing colors, what's acceptable to you?

    Everything that I like. Now it's mostly grey, purple, black, bright green & blue.

    '[Insert genre I don't like] isn't real music'!

    There are only two things that are infinite, and the one out of those we can be more certain about, offers the answer in itself.

    Poll: Men only subject - do you shave?

    The puberty forum? Of course I shave. Once a day or every other day would be the optimum shaving frequency. Three-four days is kinda pushing the limit, as I'm not planning to grow a beard. I've got no facial features to hide. So for my face it's mostly every other/three days, since I'm...

    Books to be Movies

    Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials: Golden Compass, Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass. And no, that half-assed, moneygrubbing, childish Hollywood shit titled Golden Compass does not count.

    Favorite video game character and why?

    Fully customizable or blank like Gordon Freeman

    When NPC's can play the game better than you.

    Cheating AI in Civilization games is tiresome.

    Come Join Us for Escapist Expo 2013

    Still can't attend. The Atlantic Ocean, another continent and so on and so on.

    Rome II - How psyched are you?

    I like the idea of Total War games, but never really got into them, despite trying. The gameplay isn't how I'd like it to be. This one promises to have the most potential yet, and the era and setting is perhaps the most intriguing of them all, so I'm cautiously optimistic. Might have a go at it...

    So, I just had a run-in with police...

    I've only been pulled up once to hear I had unpaid taxes on my car, from the previous owner, which should have been impossible. Basically all the cops here are nice and pragmatic. Guards / Service Officers at events can be assholes though.

    Your 20 Favorite Games Ever.

    Your "One does not simply..." moments in videogames.

    One does not simply decide and stick to play a Civilization game for "just one more turn", "until this wonder/building/improvement is built", "until this war ends", "until this tech is discovered", "until this Golden Age ends", "until a certain number of turns"... ... One does not simply list...
