  1. Doesn't leave much time to fish does it?
  2. Thanks Rocky, I have been doing pretty much exactly that. Looks like it's going to be a 27" Dell. I don't have the model number in front of me, (you know how long they are) but it has all the high end stuff and it's on sell for $450.00 US. And NightCrawler........how much time do you spent playing GR-W on that monitor? And judging by the room decor, how much time do you spend watching fishing videos??? Let me guess. You need it to be that long so you can see those really big fish. OldGhost.
  3. So did the game creator's include a first person view in Wildlands??? OldGhost.
  4. That's his concealed carry weapon. Just sayin.
  5. Hi all. Well, after 10 years of flawless service, my Samsung monitor died in it's sleep. Now I need you all to educate me so I can pick a new one for my gaming. I've started looking around and I see there are some monitors with higher refresh rates, curved screens and features like G-Synk. What is that?? Also, I have red some things that hinted that there are games out there that can't be played on monitors with higher refresh rates. Is this true and how can I tell which ones can and which ones can't. So can you give me some links that I can go to so I can read up on all the latest cool features and gizmos a good gaming monitor should have? What they are and how they work? And of course, any knowledge you would like to share with me here in this forum would be appreciated too. Things like, what monitors you would recommend and what ones I should stay away from. Or any other thoughts you may have. Thanks all. OldGhost.
  6. Yea, from the gameplay I saw on the internet, I figured it was pretty much like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor and Battlefield. Sense these are games that I have been playing I thought what the heck, It might be worth buying. But if I can’t launch and play it from my computer without having to logon to some UBISOFT website then it’s not worth it to me. I would appreciate it if someone could let me know for sure about this. Anyone know if UBISOFT is going to require you to logon to their website to launch and play the single player part of Ghost Recon: Wildlands? OldGhost.
  7. Hi all. When UBISOFT came out with GR:FS, I didn’t like what I was hearing about the game so I left the GR community to play other games. Recently I came back to this website just for a look-see. Red some posts, found some gameplay on the internet. The game doesn’t look that bad. Other than the cloaking camo, I like the tech and it is not all that different from the games I have been playing. Some questions though. 1. You do not have full control of your squad like you did in the rest of the GR series, correct? 2. When you buy the game, do you get the entire game or do you have to go to a UBISOFT website and download some part of the game? 3. After the game is installed on my computer, can I play the single player part of the game without my computer having to be connected to the internet, or do I have to play that part of the game through a UBISOFT server? And anything else you think that I may need, or need to know in order to buy, install, and play the game would be most welcome also. Thanks all. OldGhost.
  8. Hi all. Been away from this site sense they came out with Ghost Recon: Future Solder. Didn’t like the direction UBISOFT was taking the series so I left to play other games. On impulse I decided to come back here and see what’s new and found that my user name and password still worked so here I am. Surfed a little through the forums, red a couple posts, and now would like you all to catch me up on what’s been going on with the Ghost Recon series with some questions. 1. Has UBISOFT come out with another GR game sense GR:FS? And has UBISOFT found the wisdom to make it more like OGR? 2. What is Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and what is it about? 3. What is Ghost Recon: Phantoms, and what is it about? Apologies if I posted this in the wrong forum. Any and all answers and comments welcome people. Thanks all. OUT. OldGhost.
  9. Yea. For me, between TPP and UBI's DRM crap , this kills it for me. All I can do now, is wait for the next installment after this one and hope UBI figures it out. Ghost Recon has evolved into something defferent then it once was. Like the difference between dinosours and birds. OldGhost.
  10. If............repeat........if........they have trashed the idea of the always on-line DRM, . Then they have at least moved in the right direction I think that the basic idea is sound but I agree with Zeealex that they need to monitor a more perminent part of a computers hardware. But I am not sure what that would be OldGhost.
  11. Yes I agree with BS PALADIN. Now it's time for you detective tipes to dig and find answers to questions like what kind of anti--piracy crap they are going to include to muck the game? OldGhost.
  12. This is why I Love posting such questions on GHOSTRECON.NET. I'm going to copy these highly to another file and print them out so I can take them in to the local computer shop with me. Thanks for your time people........and keep the thoughts and comments comming. OldGhost
  13. Thanks Pave Low. So, I take it that both games will let me play them offline, and that the downleaded STEAM client in my computer is the key that unlocks that ability? OldGhost.
  14. Hello Ghosts. I’m hoping you can answer some questions about two games for PC for me. They are “Call of Duty MW3” and “Battlefield 3”. First some background information. Both of these games require you to at least register them with STEAM. And some games require you to play just the single player part of the game online on the company servers. Well, I have had nothing but bad experiences with putting my gaming computer online. I contract some kind of virus and end up having to “ Flush the whole Toilet” and start over loading in all the drivers, settings, games, mapping the keys, playing all the missions, and when I get it all back just where I want my computer to be, here comes another virus. So my gaming computer just doesn’t see the internet. But I still want to play computer games. Soooooooo.......... Question: I dropped in to the STEAM website and red the licensing and registration agreement. It said...”YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECURITY OF YOUR COMPUTER”. Well, sooner or later a virus or something worse will find us all. And if my account and password gets out, STEAM will try to prosecute me? Do I really need to be concerned about this or am I just making it more difficult then it needs to be? And just how difficult is it to open a STEAM account? Question: If either or both of the games above require you to play the single player part online, I just won’t buy them. But if either or both games require that you only need to register them online and then you can play the single player part OFFLINE, then I would consider buying them and taking my computer in to my local computer shop and using their very good anti-virus protection to register the games and bring the computer home to play. So, what are you required to do before you can play these games offline? Thanks for your time people. OldGhost.
  15. A prediction. This may force game console makers to include this technology and control hookups into their consoles. AND......... Speed the extinction of games made for PC. OldGhost.
