After what feels like an eternity, I am finally a PC Gamer!
As I mentioned in a previous ramble, Confessions of a Console Peasant which by the way I wrote back in 2016. Wow, time flies. Anyway, at the time of writing that ramble, I was content to be a Console player for the rest of my gaming life. 2017 me disagreed. So much so that for my 21st birthday I asked for cash so I could build my first PC.
The big day came and went, I had £750 in my account and was about to get my components but then people started farming for Athena, a bitcoin that can be farmed by using graphics cards, spiking the prices. Needless to say, I was livid.
By the time the market had settled down a bit, it was 2018.
The hardest part was waiting for the market to calm down as I am not a patient person. After I had gotten everything I needed I made a deal with a good friend that he would build the PC for me if I bought him pizza. Fair trade if you ask me. So earlier this month he came over and started construction. Only for us to realise that I had forgotten a part.
Next time he came over we had everything so we were go for launch. While he was at it he made sure I had decent security and tested my cards. They approved his standards and I was over the moon. I finally have my very own gaming PC!
When I first sat down to play on my brand new PC, I froze. I had no idea what to play. I will admit that I am still getting used to playing with a keyboard compared to a controller. I have considered getting a steam controller but since not all games are compatible with it I don’t know if it would be worth it.
I still use my PS4 a lot. So much so I had to get an external drive recently because I ran out of internal storage. I am starting to use it less and less these days and I am getting more confident playing on my keyboard.
Needless to say, I am in love with my new PC. I haven’t touched my eight year old laptop since I first powered this baby up for the first time. I’m now trying to catch up on indie games I missed out on as well as some of the games that have been gathering digital dust in my steam library.
On that note, I should get back to that. See you later!
