Getting a sound card is a pretty massive boost in my gaming experience. Bad Company 2, a game with fantastic audio, now sounds incredibly crisp and accurate. I feel so much more in tune with the game as well. Everything feels so much clearer and closer in a way. Sometimes I load up high graphics settings and war tapes just to be overwhelmed. Laguna Presa is magnificent with the shallow water and chirping birds.
It’s too bad that war tapes and high graphics make the multiplayer a overwhelming, re-verb induced explosion of my senses. I guess that’s what home cinema and my spotting config are for.
Music is now on a whole new level of awesome as well. I can’t remeber the last time I listen to music with lyrics. Must have been She and Him a few weeks ago. Vocals are for nerds anyway.
