    Going from a S3 to a Nexus5, what will I miss?

    The big changes from Touchwiz? Everything is 1000000000000x better. That's about it. My brother has an S3 and I wanted to gouge my eyes out on the few occasions I've used it.

    We're talking about the light on the controller here, not the system itself. And I'd assume anyone with a PJ is trying to play in complete darkness, PJs look like absolute shit with any other ambient light present.

    How serious are you about your projector setup (ambient light isolation and such)? I'm playing on a plasma and the stupid light on the controller is driving me nuts. Covering it with my hand makes a very noticeable difference in light projected onto my TV. I can only imagine how awful it would...

    Am I missing something by NOT having a home NAS?

    I did the "jam everything in my gaming rig" solution for years and just recently switched to a dedicated NAS/media server/whatever buzz word you want to call it. Why? I wanted 24/7 access to my stuff without having to leave my power hungry gaming rig on (the "server" if you can call it that...

    I'm hoping for their sake that they had some kind of catastrophic equipment failure, because otherwise this is downright pathetic at best.

    i5 3570k $190 with $50 discount on Z77 boards at Microcenter

    When I ordered online it told me my order went through, and at the same time that my credit card info was invalid. I checked my account and there was a successful order for ONLY a motherboard (at full price). Removed the order, hopefully that cancels it? If I get a 150 dollar asrock turd in the...

    What do you use your tablet for?

    The extent of my G Tablet use is checking IMDB/Facebook when laying in bed watching TV and I'm too lazy to get up to grab my laptop. Even then it's hardly better than using my phone. Unless these new quad core Tegra 3 tablets are boat loads faster I don't see how anyone could use these things...

    Will you every pay full price for a PC game again?

    Of course I'll pay full price. But only for multiplayer games. BF3 for example I would have gladly paid more than 60 for considering the amount I've played and will continue to play. Most SP games I don't even get 5 dollars worth of fun out of. They're more of a chore than anything.

    BF3 multicore support...suspicion of only up to 3cores..

    Agreed. Single player is worthless. I see 80-85% CPU use often in multiplayer, sometimes in the 90s on Caspian Border.

    Playstation Move Mayhem pack (Liike Doomsday + Killzone3) for $120 at Best Buy

    Anyone play these games with the Move setup? Was mad I missed out on the $50 deal at Sony for the starter kit but that would have cost as much as this after buying the rest of the Move components and KZ3. Is it worth it?

    Medal Of honor is finally $5 over @ D2D Price is finally right I guess

    Almost bought it because I remembered reading it was 3d vision ready... ONLY multiplayer is 3d vision ready. Single player runs on unreal engine and sucks in 3d apparently. Just a heads up.

    why choose BD of any variety over a 2500K?

    -If you're a huge AMD fanboy like me (I bought my 940BE instead of an i7 920 almost 3 years ago and feel like a retard for doing so. About to do it again with BD anyway)

    Battlefield 3 General Discussion Thread

    They tested on Metro. Caspian is a totally different animal. Huge outdoor level with twice as many players and vehicles. It hammers the CPU HARD. Lower frame rates are concurrent with increased CPU use and my GPU rarely hits 90%+ utilization while on Metro it's pegged at 99% always.

    Cheap media extender

    I use ps3mediaserver to stream my movies/tv/etc to my ps3 and it's pretty much perfect. Is there a cheap option out there that works just as well that I can get for my bed room or should I just yank the ps3 out of the HT setup?

    Driving my rig to a new place

    I threw mine in the passenger seat and buckled it up so it wouldn't go flying (I drive like an asshole). No problems. Had a giant TRUE heatsink on it to. CPU coolers mount with so much force I can't ever see them being an issue.

    Who else uses 3D Vision?

    My question is: Is 3D worth 400-500 dollars? Really tempted to pick up the 23.6" Acer and a pair of glasses to try it out, but I'm really worried I'll hate downgrading from a 32" screen and wish I had bought car parts instead.

    Could you go from a 28" to a 23" monitor?

    I've been using a 32" TV sitting at arms length distance when gaming for 4 years now and there's no way I could downgrade to a 23-24". Thought about it many times but I know I'll be disappointed. Whenever I use a 22" with my laptop as a second display I want to cry.

    Tablet viewing angles

    I bought a G tablet back when they announced the Xoom prices. Figured the hardware was similar so eventually someone would get Honeycomb running on it. Fastforward to now and there's no Honeycomb. Even worse is the viewing angles. You can't see anything unless you're looking at it dead on. I...
