    Just wanted to see some awesome screenshots of different games by you people. I´ll start with Gears of War which has been tweaked by me to increase the visual overall quality of the game. Just look at some of these screens taken from my desktop computer.

    You really ought to thumbnail those things, there's not much excuse when Imageshack (Like XS.to) gives you the link code. Just because I have a 20Mbit line doesn't mean I want to load 30MB of your pictures each time I open the thread.

    Not trying to be a hater, but this is a notebook forum, and you show screenies from your desktop? They look great, but just sayin....

    Is it possible to use timg-tags or some such? This is ridiculous. It seems more like a thread where the purpose is to go "look at me, I am able to link to big pictures".
    I really don't want to scroll that much both down and from side to side in an effort to read what people write.

    Please do something about it.

    Edit:

    Both XS.to and Imageshack give you thumbnail linking codes, there's no need to even mess with code. Just look at my post, it works fine.

    i'll throw in a few to make you all jealous of my uber-cool games and computer. i payed a lot of money for this rig, but it totally pays off when i can play the latest video games at a high resolution and in great quality. and now, behold my awesomeness.

    first up a beautiful shot of the space shuttle taking off.
    [​IMG]

    next up is a great screenie where i happened upon a mythological monster:
    [​IMG]

    and then of course Mario moonlighting on Mt. Rushmore:
    [​IMG]

    finally, the greatest moment in video gaming ever: skydiving down the Everfrost waterfall.
    [​IMG]

    oh, and just to make all of you more jealous, i can run this game absolutely maxed out at 60fps :cool: now run off to mommy and cry about your lame computers and games ;)

    ^^^That^^^

    This thread fails.

    FYI, these are just in-game screenshots which is really nothing special. Besides, there are specialized websites, such... as oh I don't know....gamespot?, that contain a plethora of screenies. Furthermore, did you know that any screen capture will only look as good as the capabilities of the viewer's display? Food for thought.

    As funny as the images of Pilotwings 64 are, they're liable to get this thread locked, seeing as it's being run in Project64.

    Hey, I bought CoR today too! Haven't bothered installing it yet, tho'. But I'm pretty much sure that I'll be seeing that screen as well.

    Bought it because of the included Butcher Bay full game with enhancements. :)
