Wow, it has been and incredibly long time since I have updated this blog or even my main web site. I wish I could say this is because I've been so busy at work but that was not been the case. Of course I cannot elaborate why but I'll just say the industry is very "dynamic."
So far there are no complaints about the system itself. I may have made the wrong choice of video
cards but that's my fault not the system's. I got dual GeForce 770 in SLI mode. Sounded cool but really not necessary I think. My main complaint if I had one is just with Windows 8, man does it suck. But I get a free Windows 10 when it comes out so hopefully those woes will be over soon.
The main hurrah is just the fact that I can finally play all those Steam games I bought in sale and couldn't run on the old P4. So far I've installed almost everything and have hardly made a dent in my 2TB hard drive. The bad part of this is now I'm a little overwhelmed as to where I should begin. It's like when I used to have enough money to buy two Genesis games. Ultimately I would play the hell out of one and the other would never get much play time because something newer would come out before I got to it. So now I've got all these older titles I never tried and also new shiny titles asking for my attention. So I mainly find myself sitting in from of the machine doing nothing.
The biggest reason I did all this is I wanted to play with the Unity engine. I can't install it at work because of legal restrictions so I needed a machine at home that could handle it. Once I get my two monitors I can start becoming productive. I have a few projects in my head and I'm looking forward to future developments. ;)
