Guys if you PC Geniuses could help me out and answer these questions it would be greatly appreciated. I am purchasing a gaming PC but i am kind of puzzled.

1. Does PC have like an online network like PSN or XBL

2. I prefer to have physical copies of games so where could i order them for pc. (Trusted sites please)

3. If there is an online network would you be willing to add me

4. What games do you recommend

5. Is there any way to record gameplay

6. If you can record would you be willing to help in future PC game video productions.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. :geek:

Yes, many. Best ones are steam and raptr

2. I prefer to have physical copies of games so where could i order them for pc. (Trusted sites please)

Gamestop, amazon

3. If there is an online network would you be willing to add me
Yeah, steam and raptr.


4. What games do you recommend
This comes down to what kind of games you like. PC has MANY free good games. Team Fortress 2, DC Universe Online, LotRO, Global Agenda, Super Monday Night Combat, many, many more.


5. Is there any way to record gameplay

Recorded as in hours, or video? Yes to both, raptr and steam both keep game time records, and you can download fraps, or stream with xfire or the xcaster thing for twitch.tv

6. If you can record would you be willing to help in future PC game video productions.

Duh? :)

1. Does PC have like an online network like PSN or XBL

Do you mean a place to buy games and friends? If so, you can download steam which works like psn or xbl. You can buy games (not all), join a group which wss has. Chat with friends, play with friends. You can also download Origin which is run by EA. Steam is ran by valve. They have chat software like ventrillo, teamspeak, skype. Most games that you play like a shooter has the same type of mp interface, like cod for example. MMORPG (massively multiplayer online rpg) have servers in which you pick and play on. Which these games have a whole slew of things to offer but cost a monthly fee of 15 bucks. WELL worth it IMO.

Onlive is something else for pc. You can buy games from them, but you play the game on their server. So you don;t really run the game, you just use the mouse and keyboard and the game is on a server. Works pretty good.


2. I prefer to have physical copies of games so where could i order them for pc. (Trusted sites please)

Best buy, GameStop, Amazon. Steam is all digital downloads, amazon offers digital and so does gamestop. I believe gamefly you can buy physical copies too.


3. If there is an online network would you be willing to add me

Of course! :)


4. What games do you recommend


Depends on what you like, but here is what I recommend. bases solely on what I like and my opinion.

Battlefield 3
COD MW3
Skyrim
Diablo 3
Path of Exile (beta but will be f2p...came is like diablo 3)
Race 07 + all expansions
Simcity 4
Walking Dead
Dead Island
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The Secret World - Its a MMO that cost 15 a month
GW2 - comes out aug 28 and a f2p mmo
two Worlds 2
Witcher 2
Total War Shogun 2
Diablo 2
Mass Effect 3
Titans quest + expansion
Supreme Commander 2
League of Legends
Tribes Ascend - f2p shooter
War inc: battlezone - f2p shooter

I mainly play mmos because they offer so much for a person and 15 bucks a month is cheap enough and really at the end, you get a lot of game for that



5. Is there any way to record gameplay


yes, they're several programs you can get. Although they cost money, but cheap.
Best ones are Fraps and X-split. Great thing about xsplit is that it will record in a continuous video unlike fraps where it will break the video up into multiply video files. Also xsplit, if you have a webcam or something, you can put your head or something in the video if doing commentary.

Some games have in-game records that will upload to youtube and also save to the HDD for editing if you like to do that.


6. If you can record would you be willing to help in future PC game video productions.

Sure, I do alot of recording the youtube channel that ngn and me do. I plan on uploading some to the wss channel once that info is released. But Id be happy to help you out.


Hope that helps you :)

Sent you a friend request. Got a mic to use for Ventrilo, skype, gmail, or steam voice chat, could help you with anything pretty easily with that. Hope you enjoy your new PC
