    Gaming in your 40s

    58, and one set of my grandkids (13 and 10) just hooked me solid into Fortnite. Doing dailies and getting crowns, etc. The other set (10 and 7) have me heavy into Minecraft Dungeons. Other than that I'm into MSFS in VR. Then again I'm retired, so I can spend time with family and gaming.

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    I was supposed to have Starlink by mid to late 2021, now it's mid 2022, My laziness trumps industriousness. Coincidently, my mother-in-law(God rest her soul) used to say "The lazy man works the hardest". Curiously, she was always looking at me when she said it.

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    I don't have to imagine. You can unplug it then wait 5 hours, which is a viable solution if you're going to bed soon.

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    Wait list Feb 9th 2021 - still waiting (They are saying by mid-2022) I have Tmobile 5g which is good for about an average of 18mbps. sometimes it needs to be reset, sometimes, sometimes they deprioritize me into the single digits MBPS. This is what happens when soft reset doesn't work -...

    How much do you get out of Videogames today?

    Severely into MSFS VR, but because of that I can play any game out there with excessive settings turned all the way up in pancake mode. Love flying around, but I also just finished Halo:Infinite Although the Boss monologues and some of the cutscenes were over the top. I really enjoyed it. Other...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    In MSFS I am only in pancake mode for screenies or videos, in VR I use FSKneeboard, it is a wondeful little app that provides access to detailed GPS like maps and imports your flight plan into the map. I always have it running - it's maps are far more useful than the...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    The amount of quality aircraft coming to MSFS in the near term is impressive, while some are relatively inexpensive, others can dwarf what you paid for the simulator program itself - The one that I'm interested in is the study level Boeing 737 NextGen that will be on the other side of a...

    Your latest VR purchase?

    Just bought the Carenado WACO WYMF5 - Gorgeous aircraft, in VR or pancake mode. Great controls, fun to handle on the ground. Great in the air.

    Oculus Quest 2

    I played a few quest games, but for the money you can't get a better PCVR headset, I do MSFS and DCS exclusively and the Q2 is an awesome display for those titles.

    Your latest VR purchase?

    Well, Besides a Alienware R12, I bought a Logitech X52Pro, I used my first time DCS discount on an F16, F18 and Persian Golf Map. I also bought Bredok's 737 Max8 for MSFS2020. I downloaded a Grumman Goose and The Savage Grravel bush plane... and a 16' USB 3.2 cable to link my Q2 into it all

    The state of VR technology

    For now, quest 2, but I will upgrade when budgets permits if needed, (old eyes are not too particular) I just bought a rig that should run DCS and MSFS decently, it cost slightly over what I could buy it's graphics card for on eBay. I also bought some modules from DCS.. I've been around since...

    The state of VR technology

    I'm going all in on VR for flight sims in retirement. I have read that IR led illumination will suffice for the quest 2 giving you the "dark room" you are looking for

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Jumping into DCS with both landing gear! they are having their summer sale, but if you are new (which I am) your first purchase is 50% off MSRP on anything you buy - F18, F16 and Persian Gulf map. It BARELY runs on the system below, but Dell is working on that. VR here I come! Eventually, that is.

    Oculus Quest 2

    I'd just like to say, the Quest 2 has the best browser for perusing [H] whilst in the can.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator is now playable in VR

    I'm looking at a new system, no discrete gfx cards available. Probably go Alienware i7, 32GB, 512sdd and a 3080. After that then I'll start spending the real money on aircraft lol.

    Your latest VR purchase?

    Bought 2 Quest 2s for the Mrs. and I. Spent the afternoon in ecoshpere 180° VR shows, and bought Pistol Whip and Ultrawings. I like Ultrawings while I'm biding my time until I get a new pc this summer, but I took a chance on Pistol Whip, so much fun! I am John Wick!

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    I somewhat agree with the Elon-rage, but if I can get 300Mb/s by "mid to late 2021"all will be forgiven. I just need to wait to get a new rig to run MSFS2020 in VR. Given the frame rates and settings people are running with 3090s it will be a while. MSFS2020 in VR is the new Crysis

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Logitech MX5500 Bluetooth - it's SO OLD, but the input lag is not bad and since I use it on the couch, its the only unit that works for me - Does anyone have a good Bluetooth Keyboard/Mouse combo they can recommend?

    Do you like Android or iPhone better, and why?

    iPhone 7 for work - prefer it to Android for that specific use-case. Simple easy,security that isn't always in your face, gets the job done. Samsung S9 personal - I'm used to Android and I like the ability to modify the UI, and Swype keyboard is best keyboard

    Kingdom Hearts 3

    I've played through the first level (Olympus) and if you try to get the story you'll end up spending way too much time trying. The gameplay is fun, the voice acting is forced and halting. All in all, I can't see myself finishing this one. But that's me - old fart waiting for Crackdown 3 lol

    Metacritic: Xbox One Didn't Have a Single Positively Reviewed Exclusive in 2018

    I transferred from an older PC to a 1X. With Xbox LiveGold and Gamepass (none of which I've paid a single cent for - thank you MS rewards program) I have access to more high quality games than I could ever play. As a PC gamer I've converted to a controller and I have very compelling content that...

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    I was thinking of going solar, But I'll just grab a couple of Tesla "Powerwalls", put one in the back of my truck in an easily swappable configuration and viola! free power for my house while tying knots the undies of the upperclass! Brilliant!

    Forza Horizon 4 - A beautiful game

    The one Xi s a superb platform for this game, I spent my time so far in a mix between 1080x60 and 2160x30, I'll need more time to determine which I like better,. For now I really like the 4k when looking at the car model in a static environment. I haven't driven enough in the 1080 mode to make a...

    Forza Horizon 4 - A beautiful game

    Found it to be quite enjoyable just saying heck with the races - just went out, and bought some cars that I've previously owned and tricked them out Loved the Mini - most agile car I've ever owned I had an 85, but this looks identical except for the rear spoiler. If you have Gamepass, go...

    Halo TV Series Is On Its Way

    To get used to controllers (to make me feel justified in my purchase of an Xbox 1X) I ran through Reach, MCC and 5 starting in November. I liked the story a lot. If done well, the series could be compelling enough to sit with the best sci-fi out there. I would hope that this is an initial foray...

    Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+

    Had my GS9 for a day, it's a tad smaller than my s7edge, but it is much faster ( browser page loads much quicker) cases are order as is a slew of USB-C cables. Battery life is a bit better too.
