    What is the absolute best monitor for gaming right now? I've been away for a long time...

    One thing to note: if the Odyssey you're looking at was the 32:9 variant of it to play Diablo2, Blizzard announced that Diablo2 remastered was no longer going to support ultrawide. Big bummer imo: that style of game seems perfect for ultrawide.

    Official PS5 Thread

    Good timing - just got a new monitor (FV43U) and have a hankering to get back into some PS5 gaming to test out the HDR/4K (going from a 32" 1440p to 43" 4k).

    God of War: Ragnarök

    I don't get many titles on release day, but for this title I'll be buying day 1. I also agree with the other posters, this game doesn't look like a massive improvement graphically over the ps4 original.

    PlayStation Showcase 2021

    Doesn't look like I'll be dusting off my PS5 much for the rest of this year. Forspoken looked interesting to me - hoping the main character and wrist thing aren't as chatty in the final game, but the game itself looked great. God of War: Ragnarok is looking good. Though it also looks pretty...

    Controller options

    Probably a little late (since it appears OP set his mind on a Xbox One controller) but I've really been enjoying my 8bito Pro controller. That controller feels great for 2D platformers.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    For the Canadians - currently has it for $100 off and $9.99 shipping. Still not as cheap as Memory Express, but there's at least stock at newegg.

    This is the real story of the Afghan biometric databases abandoned to the Taliban

    We should get our swearing in while we can then - damn dirty dems!

    Is this good card for mining

    That was the same GPU I got before I finally acquired a 3080 and sold the 3090. And, yeah, that GPU could mine well enough.

    Nintendo software only.

    Didn't they kinda do that with Pokemon?

    How is Nintendo successful?

    Big factor for Nintendo's success is their family friendly platform. I've got a 6 year old and setting up a Switch for him was a breeze. It was easy to setup the hardware for him to use on his own: no inappropriate content, no unauthorized purchases; And he's easily able to navigate the UI...

    Is 2021 a dud for gaming?

    Definitely a lighter year for new gaming and the upcoming schedule still looks light. I've mostly been using the slow period to catch up on my backlog (which is huge). Hades, Horizon Zero Dawn PC, Spider-Man Remaster/Miles Morales, Ni No Kuni 2 are a few of the titles I've been playing through...

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED Very positive review. Just need Canadian availability (or an open border!).

    Early tests of Steam deck promising

    Good watch; I'm really liking the thermals they got (larger form factor, so it makes sense). The Steam Deck might actually have me looking forward to going on travel again.

    3dfx Making a Comeback?

    I would've preferred a hoax versus having a 3DFX sticker on cheap electronic garbage.

    3dfx Making a Comeback?

    It'd be more interested... if instead of being a Nvidia or AMD AIB, they ended up being a Intel AIB for their upcoming high end GPUs. Position themselves as the EVGA for Intel's GPU. I'd be on board with that strategy.

    3dfx Making a Comeback?

    Yar, if they are going to have a product come out this winter, I don't see how they'd be able to develop a product that quickly unless they're a AMD or Nvidia AIB. Don't get me wrong, it'd be cool if it is actual new hardware - just seems awfully quick, especially considering how much work...

    Halo Infinite

    No more delays - let them release this one already and start work on a true next gen Halo (that's only available for Xbox S|X + PC and not Xbox One).

    Question for the Hive regarding Secret Labs

    Instead of providing cleaning product, I'd go after a hefty discount.

    Yar, looking forward to playing some crpgs on this handheld using the track pads.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Looking forward to your writeup on the monitor. If not for the lack of availability in Canada and the closed border - not sure if I would've waited for reviews.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED Looks like newegg has the price listed with the product now ($1499.99). Probably getting close to order time.

    I'll be checking that out later. Have a hankering for some platforming, so hoping Sackboy is on sale or goes on sale during this promotion.

    You might've just figured out the main quest of the game right there.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    I thought the LG CX had an issue with Gsync compatible not working (but freesync worked fine), I wasn't on the hunt for a display back then so don't remember the full details or could be completely wrong. Good to hear Gsync compatible is more or less a given now.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Yeah, that'd be a deal breaker for me. I'm sure it's only a firmware away from being enabled, but I wouldn't want to wait on it. Currently at work so can't check, but I wonder if the topic came up during one of the Aorus livestreams. I remember watching a portion of one video about the FO48U...

    Horizon Forbidden West (PS4/PS5)

    I'm hoping they allow the player to get haircuts in the game ala Witcher 3. Not for any particular reason except to see Taco's reaction when Aloy looks like this:

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Impressive, most impressive - what Devil did you barter with to get the order processed that quickly? I bet being one of three guys who ordered an AMD bike got you a priority ticket or something.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I think it is - guy a page or two back had the same thing happen to him with a 256 GB. The theory is no 'Q-something 2022' estimated date means you're part of the Dec 2021 batch.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    DP and built-in KVM are the two big PC-centric features I'm mostly interested in. Not saying those two features alone are enough to make me choose a FO48U over a CX, but it's definitely got me interested enough to see how more reviews play out for the FO48U.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Yar, that's weird - just checked mine and it still says Q1 2022. I wonder if that means you'll be eligible for the initial Dec 2021 batch.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I wouldn't be surprised, if the Steam Deck is a success, another hardware manufacture releases their own version that copies the Switch modularity. There is (or was?) a portable PC that was designed to have control points 'pop out', so you could have a D-pad or an analogue stick. I quite liked...

    Netflix plans video game expansion

    The female and male Viera species (the rabbit looking characters) are virtually indistinguishable from each other until you get down to the nitty gritty.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Sony reversed the decision to close the PS3 and Vita store, but who knows for how long. I have a feeling I'll be rocking a similar setup except with a micro keyboard and a mouse at the airport.

    Ha, wish I would've seen this - definitely would've grabbed a base model instead.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Registration went through on a 256 GB model. Luckily enough, the EVGA queue has made me a very patient man.

    Tried for 15 minutes, with no luck (direct payment with MC). Currently at work, so couldn't stay away from the desk for too long! Still, nice to see them selling out.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Yar, if not for the unboxing pictures of the actual unit, I'd assume pokde was just basing their review off of released specs (which I see a lot from questionable Youtubers). Still, at least we're getting closer. And if I have the currency they used correct, their currency equated to $1900 CAD...
