    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro enhanced trade-in credit and promo gift card @ BestBuy

    Yeah, just did it myself. Got $545 for the P6 Pro. Honestly haven't been all that impressed with it. Hope the P7 Pro is better...just doing this mainly for value I think.

    Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (coming to PC)

    Wow, that pretty much seals the deal that I'll not buy a PS5 ever. Know a lot of PS games are coming to PC or at least plausible rumors, but didn't expect this one.

    Wow, actually a PC CE. $290 tho, yikes.

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    Yeah think I changed a key binding at the start that screwed it up. Just tried setting controls to default and it worked fine...except I already finished the game a couple weeks ago, doh!

    HP Reverb G2

    Seems HP has made an improved G2: https://www.roadtovr.com/hp-reverb-g2-update-us-commonly-requested-improvements/ First I'd heard of it. My controllers did an update last night automatically, was hoping the improvements to tracking would apply to current versions. I was playing a driving...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Started playing about a week ago. Stutter is bad during transition to new areas and some cutscenes for the most part. Happens here and there during during fights etc, but nothing that ruins the game for me. Playing at 120fps/Hz with gsync tho, maybe it helps.

    Your latest VR purchase?

    Oculus has the Vader Immortal Bundle for $14.99: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/quest/882687799301914/ Already owned the first Episode, so got a further discount to $9.89 for the remaining two. Was disappointed it was so short, but $5/episode I think is more in line. Although I've yet to...

    new to VR and looking for purchase recommendations

    Yeah battery powered is certainly one con of the Q2, as there have been many times I've played until it shuts down. I actually find the Q2 perfectly fine even in games like Beat Saber and Eleven Table Tennis where I'm really moving around, doesn't slip or feel out of balance at all. I do use...

    new to VR and looking for purchase recommendations

    Own both the G2 and Q2. Got the G2 in January. Only bought the Q2 about a month ago with the updated version. If I had to pick only one, it would definitely be the Q2. Absolutely loving not having a wire, and the controller tracking is far better. Also just returned from a 2.5 week business...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    I agree with a number of your assessments, although I actually really enjoyed the game world and exploring it. Had over 140 hours in it after completing the epilogue, and there's still more to see. So many times I'd be riding to a mission start, then get side tracked for a couple hours. And...

    Your latest VR purchase?

    Yeah I had been waiting on playing Alyx until I got a new pc, coming from a 1080 Ti as well. Got everything running on my new pc for VR today, and I tried the first 18 hole course in Walkabout with the G2 today. Tracking wasn't noticeably different between the G2 and Q2. Even Eleven TT, which...

    Your latest VR purchase?

    Yeah just picked up the Q2 updated version yesterday and bought Eleven TT. Lot of fun, spent an hour at lunch playing the AI and was soaked in sweat today. Mainly got the Q2 for exercise and hopefully to get the GF into it as well as already have a Reverb G2, although haven't used it in a while...

    Frostpunk 2

    Jakub Stokalski, Frostpunk 2 Co-Director, had this to say about the grand vision of the game: “What we aim to deliver to players is an experience that goes vastly beyond that of the original Frostpunk. With a still-growing team of nearly 70 people, we have more manpower available to focus on...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Haven't played that, but I've seen vids. So yeah if you can get through Cuphead and enjoyed it, would imagine you'd like Sekiro. I'm not a rabid fan of this genre, but FromSoftware does some phenomenal work. The game worlds, level design and artwork are remarkable.

    Review the game you finished recently.

    I don't think it would be crazy difficult for an experienced video game player, provided some of those games require good reaction speed. The first couple bosses were really kicking my ass until I learned how to move around compared to DS/BB. Last boss also took a lot of tries, but mostly due to...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Finished Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice last night, purchased during summer sale. Spectacular game. Wish I had played it sooner. Loved the combat and movement ability differences compared to Dark Souls and Bloodborne. The artistry of the locations/game world was absolutely amazing. Definitely among...

    Metro: Exodus

    Been away on business a couple weeks, but now that I'm back, finally found a solution to the broken gamma I was experiencing on my C1 OLED. Blacks were closer to grey, night was like day, really pissing me off as this series has been one of the best on plasmas and OLEDs. Place -deependark in...

    Yep, think I'll do this for my first "new game" in a long while. My 3090 and C1 OLED should be here by next weekend.

    Saw this on Slickdeals this morning. Prebuilt with RTX 3080 and Ryzen 5600X for ~$2000 + tax. Lead time is like 2 months though: https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/AMD-Ryzen-9-Gaming-Evo-RTX-30-Series/W/1451287 Code: TEEPEE for 5% off. Wish I had jumped on some of the earlier pre-built deals...

    Reverb G2 Warning

    Is that due to the headset though? Do you have problems in all games? I did have one eye cutting out or both on one game when causing explosions in game. I've had a lot of crashes, Steam VR completely stop working until I reinstalled it, and had to figure out many different things to get apps...

    HP Reverb G2

    Picked up Skyrim VR today. Didn't think I'd ever play Skyrim again lol, but man it's entirely different when it feels like you're there. Grabbed a bunch of mods to go with it. So satisfying putting arrows in faces, or knees :) I kinda figured it out. If WMR has control, get no sound to my...

    HP Reverb G2

    Anyone using audio other than the built in? Trying to get it to work with airpods pro so I can't hear the woman watching tv nearby etc while I'm in VR. Have all the options set as far as I can tell, but soon as the headset detects it's being worn, it kills sound to the airpods. With disabling...

    HP Reverb G2

    Really loving the G2. Been 3 or 4 years since I sold my CV1. I remember reading text in games was a real pain. G2 is very clear. Picked up a used X52 yesterday for $50, having a great time in Elite Dangerous. The only downside is the old lady complaining I play all day, and I have to do...

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    Impressed they supported a port of an older game so much. Good to see it wasn't just a cash grab. Definitely will pick it up whenever I get a chance to upgrade the rig without costing a fortune. Never finished on PS4.

    Looking forward to playing this when the GeForce 4xxx series are out and I can maybe get a 3080 for original msrp.

    Android Auto Waze

    Some vehicles I've driven you have to enable Android auto and apple carplay in the car's menu settings. For whatever reason it's disabled by default. And some only one usb port in the car will work, may have been that way in the Nissan I rented a couple months ago.

    Long time pc gamer that loves pcs but age makes me like consoles now

    I had a plasma TV hooked up to my PC back in 2003 gaming from the couch or bed. And I've been doing it ever since, except now it's OLED and 4k. Sorry you've not experienced a this glory.

    GeForce NOW Open for All

    Girl was annoyed I ignored her most of the day playing PC games. Had to work tonight, texted her this: She was not too amused. So far I haven't been able to test/use the service really as my internet options are shit in the hotel, and mobile doesn't cut it either. May be going to Bay area...

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    Hope this is true. Quite enjoyed the game, but didn't finish it on PS4 Pro. Trying to get the critical shots with a controller is painful, and I hated choosing between higher fps/awful graphics with terrible draw distances and a good looking game with low fps. I love controllers for a lot of...

    Oneplus 7 Pro - Screen Protectors

    I tried a cheap tempered glass one off Amazon. Was ass because of the curve. Threw it in the trash minutes later. So first time I've done no protector since using smartphones. Been a few months, don't see any scratches.

    Arkham Legacy Batman game by Rocksteady

    Yeah that exactly what I want. Don't need to add 10 more gadgets, 50 special combos and vehicles etc. to gain my interest. Give me a new story and new areas to stomp thugs and I'm happy. All the Batman games have been amazing imo. I'm ready for a new one.

    I mean the Epic launcher looks and runs like ass. Don't want any part of it at this time. The game itself ran fine stability wise after restarting my PC.

    Holy crap the Epic game launcher is terrible. Played for about 30 min and requested a refund. Will wait for Steam and a newer gfx card.
