    The big asterisk*

    Well, what a year this has been huh? I think we can all agree, to put it bluntly, that this year can go fuck itself. That said, one thing that's been a constant throughout this fuckup of a year is this place, the people that make it, and the website that Leigh won't shut up about. It's not gone unnoticed by most of us that Leigh has put some significant work in to this place over the last few months and kept the ball rolling as much as possible, whilst still being the responsible adult we all love and sometimes need. So to that end, and with FG being FG, we clubbed in

  2. Friends to play games with! 😁 PC and Switch are my weapon. No seriously, just friends. lol. I've already got my partner to look after. I don't need another one. 😂 Been playing games since I was a kid. Dr Mario, Pacman and Pinball on the family computer. Pokemon on my red Gameboy. That was fun to play in black and white. Our first PC back in 1995, I remember playing Heretic (was only 8 and terrified of this game) , Hocus Pocus and of course, Windows Solitaire. Skipped gaming when I was growing up as a teenager because... hormones. enough said. (But, I stil

    Story times with Diddums!

    Pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea. As most of you know, I do the odd matched betting now and again, and a side effect of this is that occasionally the bookies want me to get responsibly addicted to their casinos. To do this they'll put a nice little lure on their rods and cast it to my bullshit Gmail account, and today I bit on one of those lures, nice and deep. Today's lure was from Grosvenor Casinos and it came in the form of a £10 bonus to use on their live casino. I'll save you the boring shit but live casino bonuses are always great as you stand the highest chance of making

    It's fair to say that it's been a tough time for everyone. When my dad died 3 years ago, you were there when I came home from hospital and just wanted to kick back on destiny 1 ( greatest game ever). When my marriage went the way of the pear, this community was here for me. When shit got real dark, your constant enthusiasm went a long way. When I lost my way you guys always seemed to be there ready to chat. It's been a constant in a significant period of change that wouldn't be here if you didnt work so damn hard. So accept it knowing you are more than worthy. Ggfg 😉

  5. Wow. And I mean Wow. I usually get a whiff of something happening around this place as I'm usually speaking to most of you where I possibly have a minute free but genuinely didn't expect this to ever happen. I can't quite thank you all enough. For you all to do such a thing at such a hard time in life right now, its overwhelming really. All that's left to say is that I apologise for nudging/nagging/annoying your daily busy lives of late - I've always had a vision that FG can be there for shit like this more often, and help other people, especially FGers like you, that t

  6. Porkies, you nudging us is what keeps this shit going. With the community spread across various platforms and also games, during this time where everyone's lives are fractured and dripping in FUD that little nudge, at least for me, is comforting. For all the shit I give you, I'd be even more pissed off if you stopped, and I mean that. So keep poking and prodding. Again porkies. Stop talking yourself down. You're the backbone of this place, time to start realizing it ❤️

    Hello there!

    Hi! I’ve just joined up so thought I’d have a go at this whole introduction thing 😂 I’m Scott from the UK. And I’ve played games for many years starting on the mega drive and PlayStation as a kid. I played Final Fantasy 14 until very recently but I’m now looking at expanding out a bit and trying something new to try and find a fun new group of people to play alongside. I’ve played a lot of RPGs but I’ll give any genre a go. Good company makes anything fun I think 🙂

Also gone is my Logitech wheel and replaced by a full Fanatec set up mounted on a Sim Lab GT1-Evo cockpit with my old 32" LG TV. I also recently received my Index so lots of VR racing in the future too. And finally, can't forget the most important part, the desk fan; oh the desk fan has been my

    Hey, everyone 💖

    Probably because you seem to have come here to promote your channels (in three different threads) instead of being part of the community. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but that seems to be the general consensus.

  16. What a fantastic intro, lovely start to your membership here, welcome aboard 😄 I absolutely loved Heretic, a friend of mine’s parents had a 486 DX100 which could run it, we took turns into playing, it was such a cool game. I can’t remember much of Hocus Pocus unfortunately but I did play it a fair amount foo. You came at the perfect time as @tronic44 has kindly rented a 7D2D server for us which a few of us play on quite a bit, so drop me a PM if you’re up for it and I’ll send you the deets.

  17. I read it in a book but I think all perks you get from books can be unlocked with points. The books just unlock stuff earlier than you might with points. I don’t know what perk it is but it isn’t something I thought of before. It’s worth looking in to though as it may mean you could get it without needing to find a book. Horde night for me was interesting 🤣 I took the gyrocopter to uncover some of the map and see if I could find a desert. I got distracted by some huge mountains and one that looked like a stereotypical kids drawing of a volcano with a massive caldera. Which I

  18. We've had the announcement and pricing and everything else about next gen systems. And my answer to them is......why bother? Neither system - PS5 or Xbox Series - have any system exclusives coming out this year that makes me think "I *REALLY* need that game". Microsoft have said there won't be any exclusives to the XSX for a couple of years. Even games like the new Horizon or Spiderman game on PS5 are also coming to the PS4 as well. Then there is the cost factor. Both systems will cost at least £400 (let's just ignore the XSS for now). If you wanna expand the storage t

As @Shucker and @tronic44 have said prior to my post, this place is really unique and a one of a kind gaming family. We'd love to get involved and stick around, one extra thing of note though... ...if you know how it works, its always nice to say hi and get involved in places before you want us to watch your stuff. I'm sure they are fantastic btw, but there's people hear that watch videos, follow streamers and even buy games purely because they value the opinions of other F

  20. Couple of good races last night, though I was a bit sloppy around Monza with my 11 seconds of penalties. With @JBR-Kiwi also being very quick, @GazzaGarrattgetting closer all the time, @Mikepjbell great first showing, and @Grebothonly slightly more vulnerable using a controller... looks like we're going to have some epic racing ahead 🙂👍

  24. I thought up an interesting idea a few weeks ago to buy a bunch of old Nintendo Power magazines and put them in display cases to mount on a wall in my game room. First magazine came in today and I’m pumped! Certainly not in mint condition but surprisingly it’s in fantastic shape. Goldeneye magazine should be here on Monday. Still trying to figure out which other ones I want. Obviously Mario 64, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong. Probably Mortal Kombat, Star Fox, Tony Hawk......so many to choose from. I’ll update once the final collection is complete and mounted.

    I almost cocked up last night when we were talking last night about the Sony event. You do so much for all us mate, you’re the best of us so only right we occasionally do something for you now and then. Don’t apologise for nagging us though mate, you keep this place together with your nagging. They say about herding cats is difficult but some how you manage to herd us cunts and do we need it.

  27. I agree but then I’ve never bought a console day 1. With their desire to support old consoles hampering the new, it isn’t usually until a year+ that the new consoles take over and we see the new hardware truly leveraged. Also...PC master race 😂

  28. While most of my PC is only a year old, the GPU is two years old, and I have no plans to upgrade for at least another two or three years unless the 1080ti suddenly stops being a beast. I can live without ray tracing. But if I was building a new machine this card is pretty amazeballs.

  32. With a Ryzen 3950x and RTX3080 system you'll be pushing high 600W's, maybe in to the low 700W's under maximum load. It's rare to ever load CPU and GPU to 100% simultaneously at the same time though so peak power draw is likely to be lower. So from that respect, you'd be fine running an 850W PSU though it doesn't leave much headroom for future upgrades and you wouldn't be in the peak efficiency as typically these are around 50-60% load (you can usually find the efficiency graphs from the manufacturer).

  35. Good evening everyone, My name is Emma and I am looking for some new people to play games with. I mainly game on PC but do occasionally dip onto XBOX or Playstation. I was a casual gamer when I was young until I played Final Fantasy series when I was 12. For many year after I loved the RPGs and joined a couple of MMO. Most of my gaming choices stemmed from games my brothers played (which I convinced them to let me join). I am currently jumping between games preferring open world sandbox games like Minecraft, 7 days to die and Satisfactory but have been known to play a few shooting

Hey Forever Gaming community, it's my first day amongst you all today 👋 I've been a gamer since the early 90s when Santa bought my brother and me a Sega Megadrive with Sonic the Hedgehog, moved on to, my favourite console of all time, the N64 where Link became my hero 😎 Fast forward to me being the only person in my halls of residence at uni with a Gamecube and holding awesome Super Smash Brothers drinking game parties 🍻😂. Apart from gaming, I'm a published short story writer so I love anything with a great narrative whether it's books, films, TV shows or anime. I'm curre

    Dead Matter

    So, Dead Matter, another attempt at beating or improving on DayZ has now entered a closed alpha. I took a punt on it while it was in its funding stage, so I have access to it but can't talk about it due to NDA. There was a bit of an issue with the keys and the game is already been delayed for various reasons so I note that there's a few haters of it already, though I think some people exist just to have angry reactions.

  46. Cmon Tommy, you know better than to ask these questions. It all depends on what you play, what resolution, what graphics settings and what you'd consider a playable framerate. Off the cuff I'd say another two years easily provided you're not expecting 100fps @4k on everything in a couple of years time. This new 3k series of cards are looking good. Everyone's raving about them because they're such a huge leap above the 2080ti, however I think this says more about the 2080ti than it does about the 3k series. The difference between the 2080ti and the

Many of us here play PS4 and PC with a few on Xbox too. We have some special large group ups on FG Fridays so if you have CoD and a few other games on the PS4 then lets get you involved! Definitely looking forward to hearing what you think you'll get on your PC. We seem to be having a bit of a survival binge atm on there with DayZ, 7 Days to Die and Green Hell all been played of late. Hope you get involve around
