I keep my PC on the floor, as there's no room atop the desk for anything other than the screen, speakers, keyboard, printer and some assorted figurines and other clutter.

I'd like to elevate it off the floor somehow; I'm currently using some old cut up two-by-fours, but still it accumulates dust like nobody's business. I wish there were a more effective way.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

If you have a copy of Quake, you NEED to play Arcane Dimensions, and the latest update the forgotten sepulcher. This gooseberry fool is amazing. Playing Quake in 2017 with this and it honestly feels like it couldve been released yesterday....because technically it was i guess.

Mine's on the floor too. I had no idea it was supposed to be elevated. I can't see how one inch would make a huge difference (fnarr fnarr), surely actually cleaning your house is a much bigger factor. Does there have to be airflow underneath?

You could try and buy/make a small drawer to fit the footprint of your PC. That way you'd have some storage for gubbins as well as the elevation.

I have a pc tower trolley thing which both elevates it off the floor and makes it easier to move around on wheels if necessary. You can get them for about a tenner on amazon.

Its so good, it reminds me of Doom 2016 in that its just one mental twitch shooter combat bowl after another, but with amazing level design on top. Theres some great souls-esque design in terms of shortcuts and stuff

Comparisons to two of my favourite games of recent years....yup, I quite badly need this!

It's funny for me, I read about games thinking 'oh, this sounds good' and then it starts taklking about it having Souls aspects and my cock goes all flaccid.

Actually rather watch souls than play it. It's so gooseberry fool.

At least ONE other person on this forum isn't in love with Souls games either.

The issue is, people don't understand what souls aspects are. Someone said that Wonderboy had dark souls aspects because you had to time your attacks. What. The. strawberry float.

The souls aspects are it has amazing level design where shortcuts from previously inaccessible areas open up as you play. Like you're walking through an unfamiliar area only to open a door and realize "oh gooseberry fool, this is where I started from" etc.
If great map design is a turn off, well then enjoy that floppy dick i guess

Level design isn't what I dislike about Souls.

The Souls games are cheap rather than legitimately difficult I find. I gave up on Dark Souls after an instant kill from a dragon that swoops down and torches a bridge you're crossing that you could only possibly avoid/survive if you knew ahead of time that it was coming.

So youre judging it after giving up literally about a half hours play? The dragon isnt one hit kill either (maybe if youre low hp), and also the bridge is littered with corpses and scorch marks so really, whose fault is it you died there?

So then you go "Oh, you can't go there because of a dragon." You go back wiser, pick up your souls and run away, then try a different route. Right?

I got further than that in DS1, and still don't rate them, not massively further, but I do remember beating the Gargoyles and also fighting some guy with 2 wolves/dogs in a narrow longish room.

I've also played D'sS and DS3 and well, meh. I don't like the gameplay, it's just not fun or for me entertaining.

That's fair enough, the game isn't going to appeal to everyone. Tho all those bosses are literally in the starting area of Undead Burg/Lower Undead Burg. So maybe give it another try some day. Plenty of games I've hated at first I've gone on to love after a re-evaluation.
