    posted a message on New & Old Consoles and their Games
    What's up guys. So recently Battlefield 4 and a bit earlier Grand Theft Auto V came out. As far as I know, Ps4 and XBox One will be coming soon too. I know plenty of people are planning on getting next-gen consoles, but I have a nice old PS4 with some fun games like Uncharted 1, 2, and 3, Battlefield 3, and Assassin's Creed III. In my opinion, I don't think it is worth it to spend $500 on a new console with a little bit better graphics, and more players in a game mode I dont care about in Bf4. So i'm planning on gettng GTA V, BF4, Watch Dogs, and probably some others I can't remember right now. So, are you gonna get next-gen consoles, and which new games are you getting?

    Call of Duty: Black Ops isn't on Mac.(Real Racing 3 is an iOS/Android game. Where did you get the idea to play it on Mac?)
    Okay, I'm really trying to not be offensive right now, but are you trolling or just being stupid? Call of Duty: Black Ops is like on the front page of the Mac App Store, just scroll down a bit. It was re-released by Ayspr (I think that's what it's called), which is a company thats job is to re-release Windows games, on OS X. I literally saw my brother playing it on his Macbook Pro earlier today, and I know he didn't do bootcamp. As for Real Racing 3, sorry I was mistaken, but I could have sworn I saw it on the App Store.

    depends on specs chosen, as does power (so looking at how expensive the imac is, you have a pretty big budget, so probably about 10X if not more (Also, STOP WRITING IN BLUE TEXT, there's no reason for it)

    Do you have a problem?


    LOL.

    Anyways, to make a Hackintosh, am I correct in thinking that I would build a PC as normal, but just install OS X instead of Windows. If so, that probably what I am doing.

    You can build a hackintosh with all of the features of a Mac with more power and a lower price. If you plan on playing those games at native resolution on an iMac which uses a mobile graphics card you're not going to have great framerates.
    Quote from Kruzzik_Kel
    Well you also need to be perfectly aware what your looking for wont be found in an iMac the GTX775M falls inbetween the GTX750M and GTX760M and as you can see your looking at fairly terrible performance http://www.anandtech.com/show/7287/analyzing-the-price-of-mobility-desktops-vs-laptops/3 If you want OSX I would recommend you build a Hackintosh this way you can have a much more powerful machine and still get OSX and it wont cost you $1800 either
    Quote from karlzhao314
    How do you plan on playing Windows-only games on an iMac? If you're boot-camping Windows that kind of defeats the "simplicity and user-friendliness" of OSX, doesn't it? I know I can't force you, but if you want to play the games you mentioned, I would STRONGLY recommend you build a Windows PC, if just for the fact that those games won't run on Mac OSX so you'll be using Windows anyways.


    First of all, I have seen all those games on the Mac App Store, so they are most definitely on OS X.
    Next, you say building a hackintosh is cheaper, and more powerful. If i am correct, a hackintosh is a PC built to run OS X. Where would I get OS X to build with? Also, how much cheaper are we talking, and how much more powerful?

    Hey, what's up guys? Hope it's going good. Anyways, I have not posted in the Minecraft Forums in a very long time. But I had a very important question. Sorry it's kind of a long post.

    First off, I would like to say, we are entitled to our own opinion. You may prefer a PC because of it's power, programs or anything else, but I prefer Mac for its simplicity, user-friendliness, and OS X.
    So, I am fully aware that an iMac cannot be upgraded or changed, or else without difficulty, so it is important to me I have specs good enough for what I want to do. I am definitely sure I want an iMac though, so unless it literally cannot do what I want without very much lag, please don't suggest other things. So, basically I want to spend anywhere from 1 to even 5 hours at the most per day on this computer. I want to be able to do a small amount of photo (not video) editing, small photoshopping, surfing the web with relatively no lag, be able to play flash games with no lag, and be able to play games without lag, and though I don't exactly have to be playing on ultra quality, I definitely will no allow myself to play a game on low or lowest quality.
    I am planning on playing Call of Duty: Black Ops, Bioshock Infinite, Real Racing 3, Borderlands 2, Batman: Arkham City, and Surgeon Sim 2013. Like I said, I don't need ultra quality, but I won't allow low quality. So, now that we know what I will do with the computer, time to see the computer.
    I am planning on buying the lesser 27" iMac with no modifications, and if you cannot be troubled with looking it up here are the specs:
    -27" Screen
    -OS X Mavericks
    -3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo boost up to 3.6GHz) with 6MB L3 Cache
    -8 (Two 4 GB) of 1600MHz DDR3 Memory
    -1TB 7200-rpm hard drive
    -Nvidia Gforce 755M graphics processor with 1GB of GDDR5 memory
    -Facetime Camera
    I would like to let you know that I am planning on not getting the wireless keyboard and wireless magic mouse or trackpad, and am planning on getting the wired keyboard and another mouse along the way. Thanks for all the help, and again, sorry for the extremely long post. Ask anything you need to help! Sorry if i forgot anything.

    Hello....

    I walk through the door and find the giant's body. I channel his power in to making a gatling gun the shoot bolts of pure death energy. I now have a gun with a titan's power. I also channel the death energy to create a skeleton army, that reforms when destroyed. I walk throught the door and shoot GIANT bolts of death energy at Vorg, instantly disinigrating chunks of his thick hide. I then command my army of skeletons to attack Vorg's raw meat on the inside.

    Hmmm.... A dragon vs. a sonic made of fire. The dragon would breath flames at sonic, and that would make him more powerful. So... TheSky wins. Unless it's a frost dragon. In which Brucaboy wins.

    Anyways, I am slendy. I cannot die. Muauahahahaha.

    posted a message on Large-Scale Battlefield Multiplayer Batlles
    Quote from TFnerd

    As someone who went from Battlefield on PS3 to PC... I never realized just how terrible it is on console until I played on PC. 24 players... *cringe* I could never touch it on console again, but considering that's your only choice then just buy it.

    Of course, I have to say save up for a PS4. (It's basically too late to preorder now since preorders are basically sold out.) It will be a MILLION times better. That means you have plenty of time to save up the $500 needed for the game and console, (early 2014). Soooo, hold off on BF4 and wait till then. Because BF on last-gen console is a terrible experience, except BC2. That's what I recommend.


    Thanks for the help man. I'll wait for a PS4 and get BF4




    Quote from Jimmars

    If you enjoy large scale battles just buy a PC and play Planetside or something.


    MEGA FACEPALM. Do these words mean anything to you:
    Quote from Rexxigon

    I am a console gamer.
    I am a big battlefield fan.
    I don't have the money to buy a PC (besides, like I said, I'm a PS gamer)
