    Black Friday Deals on LG C2 OLED @ Best Buy

    What happens when your monster 83+" TV has dead pixels and/or bad uniformity? I'd love to own a monster TV one day but the thought of something being wrong with it worries me. It's not exactly trivial to return something of such gargantuan proportions.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    When you activate one of those summoning pools you're basically adding that location to a list of places that you're willing to be summoned to. In order to actually be summoned, you use your small golden effigy to place a sign saying "hey, I'm willing to be summoned right now". That sign goes to...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I had a much harder time with the first boss Margit than Malenia. Because by the time you get to Malenia, you have 100+ hours of experience and a ridiculous arsenal of superpowers.

    Battlefield 2042

    BF1 is really something special. The WW1 setting (which you rarely see) combined with hyper aggressive players who rush and bomb the shit out of everything... It's INTENSE. I don't think any other BF title captures the intensity of war like this one does. I can see new players getting frustrated...

    STRAY Cat game Cyberpunk dystopia

    Game is cray cray adorbs. I love how you can meow and the environment reacts. Like the surveillance cameras that gleefully nod in approval. I only wish the game had a chonk slider. I'd love to crank it up to "OH LAWD HE COMIN" and wreak havoc.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Another fear of mine is that older titles wouldn't have the QOL improvements that Elden Ring has. Most importantly, the boss run ups. I have absolutely zero interest in spending 1+ minutes running back to a boss room 30 times in a row. I played about halfway through Bloodborne. I remember...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I do miss this game since I beat it. I find myself longing for another game like it. I suppose I could try Dark Souls 3 (or any other FromSoft title). I feel like it would be a step backwards though with no open world and no jumping. Mostly I miss the co-op. Being able to jump into another...

    Yeah I spent so many hours in Stormveil alone. The rest of the dungeons aren't quite as intricate, but still good mind you.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    You really don't have to spend hours memorizing every single boss though. The game gives you so many options which equate to "easy mode." Level the crap out of your character and weapon, use your buffs, and don't be afraid to summon help (whether it be a spirit summon or a co-op partner)...

    The Quarry

    This game was just ok for me. It had a really annoying tendency of taking control away from the player. You'd walk a few steps, trigger a cutscene, walk a few more steps, trigger another cutscene, etc... It made me laugh on a few occasions. Like did I really need 3 seconds of "gameplay" only for...

    You're also replaying a game that's only been out for 3 months, so I think a lot of the tediousness comes from that. I think it's best to give yourself some time to forget about it before revisiting.

    I don't get why everyone says this. If you just stay right against a runebear's crotch you're fine. Roll into their attacks, stay right against them, and stab them in the balls. ezpz

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I wish you could replay bosses. That's the only thing I'm really interested in after beating the game. Co-op has been great but it seems to have died out. The wait times between putting a co-op sign down and being summoned have gotten too damn high.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    True. At the end of the day nobody cares if you beat a boss solo or with summons. Certain players make it a personal goal to do it solo, and that's fine. But to push that goal onto every other player is wrong. I had a blast doing a mix of both solo and summons. What I don't care for is the...

    I beat it! And wow, the endings are terrible. For a game of such epic proportions I expected something a bit more than a 1 minute cutscene. When I saw the title card come up my only reaction was "oh."

    MARIKA'S TITS I DID IT!!! I BEAT MALENIA!!! I used a +9 rivers of blood combined with my trusty ol' bronze shield to block the waterfowl. I did use a mimic in the 2nd phase. If that's considered a cheap way to beat her then so be it. I have nothing to prove. On to the end game. I can feel the...

    Oh man, this is too relatable. Nothing more stressful than having to platform through a ton of those branches to get your runes back. The jumps are scarier than the enemies. edit - I also keep forgetting about the sacrificial twig item. That would've been so useful for those tricky platforming...

    Maliketh is a weird one. On one hand he's probably the coolest looking boss in the game (so far) but on the other hand he totally sucks to fight as a melee build. He just jumps all over the place and very rarely leaves you with an opportunity to hit him. I had to summon a mimic as well. Also...

    Co-op question. If the host dies during a boss fight but you end up killing the boss in those 10 seconds before you're returned to your world, does the host get the win?

    I really hope in future Fromsoft games they consider putting spawn points in front of every boss door. I don't understand why some boss doors have them but others don't. It's like two opposite minded people worked on this. One who believes in good user experience and the other who is a masochist...

    This pissed me off more than any boss has. 250k runes on that platform below. Gotta make these ridiculously precise jumps to get to it. This game has some of the worst jumping/platforming of all time. No air control, barely any room on the platforms to make a running jump. Every single one of...

    This person kept on summoning me for Mohg. Finally had a great round, all of my dodges were on point, everything was clicking. Then I made the mistake of looking at Mohg's health. Only one hit left! And of course I lose my cool and start panic rolling like an idiot and die. I took at look at the...

    Gaming in your 40s

    I can relate to the guilt. Gaming after all takes up a shitload of time. Checks Elden Ring clock... 150 hours and I still don't have the whole map unlocked. I think I feel the most guilt about sitting for ridiculously long periods of time. It's terribly unhealthy, especially considering that I...

    I frequently use the "Screen Off" shortcut in settings to turn my screen black when I'm away for a while. As far as I'm aware, all this does is turn the screen black and the display is otherwise still powered on, and thus the total power on time is still ticking away. One concern I had is that...

    I've been helping out with Mohg in co-op. Observations: 1. Some players go straight to the mob of those plump alien things and subsequently get destroyed in 2 seconds. 2. There's a surprising amount of people who summon co-op partners without even trying the boss on their own first. I don't...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I think it's bs to say that x game's boss is easier than y game's boss. Every boss's difficulty is going to be dependent on so many factors. Your specific build, level, summons, special items (e.g. margit's shackle), physick mixture, etc... Not to mention the skill of the actual player...

    The AI invaders suck. I've been using the guardian's swordspear and all I have to do is sprint straight at them, thrust attack, back off, repeat. They don't even have a chance to attack when I do that. Thrust attack is way OP.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    This game really needs a "cancel drinking" feature. I get that they want to make flask usage strategic, but it still can be. I'm imagining a feature where you essentially drop your flask mid-drink in exchange for a dodge. To make it fair, you wouldn't get the heal and you'd be down 1 flask.

    Astel's grab move is such bs. I see him coming in for the grab and I roll towards him. By the time my roll animation is finished I'm well under his head and his arms are still fully outstretched. His hands are nowhere near my character. And yet, like some sort of miracle, my character disappears...

    Oh believe me it's bizarre. Happens in any RE engine game for me. Moving the mouse puts a heavy load on the game and frame rate drops by 15-20 fps. It stabilizes the instant I stop moving my mouse. Good news is that I fixed it by lowering the mouse polling rate from 1000Hz to something like...

    Yes, if you have VRR enabled your frame rate is fluctuating a lot you'll see this. Here's a severe case where my C1 was flashing every time I moved my mouse in RE2. My frame rate was tanking whenever I moved the mouse. Dropping the mouse polling rate fixed it.
