    Destiny 2

    Finally got around to checking out Prophecy Dungeon. Abysmal. Most of the encounters are plain frustrating and the final encounter with the boss takes it up to 11. After a few times wiping on the final encounter we all agreed it wasn’t fun and we’d rather go do Pit of Heresy.

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    I just gave a quick scroll through of games they published for PS4 and yeah I don’t think any of their stuff has microtransactions, at least nothing that’s more egregious than like selling cars for driveclub.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    My understanding is that higher than your refresh rate means you’ll be able to easier lock to your refresh rate. Which with the advents of variable refresh/adaptive sync it’s not as big of an issue but still helps to not have issues. Just think back to enabling V Sync at 60Hz but your fps is...

    Demon's Souls (PS5)

    No difficulty settings is a weird bullet point to have given what series we’re talking about.

    Nintendo Switch

    I can say that the port is a pretty solid HD release of the Wii version at 60fps so that was enough for me to bite.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    I know it’s not your source of employment and that it would be work to set up, but a build video from you could be a fun thing. (IE I want to live vicariously through your PC build since I won’t be doing it myself any time soon)

    Ghost of Tsushima

    Unless Assassins Creed drops their pseudo RPG bullshit it can’t come close for me. Call me simple but I enjoyed the games for the stupid story and the city scape parkour. The ship combat is fun as well but I really feel they lost something. Of course I never got around to rogue/syndicate/unity...

    Ghost of Tsushima

    SkillUp has a nice little review of the Legends mode that I find to be spot on. Mostly he just shames all the shitty live service games that have the audacity to be $60 and release in horrible states. And even after multiple patches still don’t match the quality of this free update.

    I believe through the website you can claim games, as the free monthly games technically count as purchases.

    Wonderful to hear, I guess maybe I’ll put my money where my mouth is and pick one up shortly. Maybe. Waiting for CES is tempting (but so are the current prices.)

    No assumption necessary, Sucker Punch have already confirmed it to run 60fps on PS5

    Godfall PS5

    I’m guessing it’s like Destiny. Shared world blah blah blah but co-op not required (except all the content that does).

    Apple Event Reveals iPhone 12

    Scratched by a fingernail is an immediate and huge deal-breaker. I deal with fiberglass insulation that will strip the rust off of a knife. My 8+ is still holding strong after 3 years with only a few minor scratches that are actually around the bezel. I was semi looking forward to the...

    Like I said on a different forum, I want my Bloodborne the opposite of how it is on PS4 high framerate and low frame time.

    At the very least Sucker Punch tweeted about Ghost of Tsushima running at 60fps on the PS5. So it’ll do that much.

    Official PS5 Thread

    Everything I’ve seen indicates that only the 900H is receiving VRR (I could be wrong but I do know that is has not been mentioned for the 950H). Which is absolutely ridiculous that they are not allowing it for their higher end sets. Especially given that those sets still probably feature all of...

    Yeah I gamed for years on a Plasma panel with no burn in issues, can’t imagine it suddenly being a much larger issue for OLED.

    I’ve waiting until they actually release the firmware update to allow VRR otherwise there’s really no point for me.....although I see now that the 65” price has recently been slashed from 1600 to 1000. That’s a great price for a TV that is reviewing fairly well. Probably why there aren’t any in...

    PS5 Release Window Officially Announced

    Sorry man, I saw the X in stock on bestbuy day 1 and passed. Got very lucky to snatch the PS5 from Sony. That said if you’ve been a PSN user I’d say keep some hope if you signed up for the preorder chance. I got the email notifying me a day early and the actual queuing process was mostly pain...

    Managed to get one through the PlayStation store. Queued for about 20 minutes total and it took me to the store. Showed sold out at first until I signed in and then the stock as there. Easy peasy.

    Got an email as well, unfortunately I’ll be at work at the start of it. I work construction so either I’ll be busy or I’ll be on my phone and the website doesn’t play so great with mobile browsers. I’ll try but my hopes are low

    Microsoft acquires ZeniMax Media and Fallout maker Bethesda for $7.5 billion

    Those two certainly aren’t system sellers but they both were enjoyable experiences I thought. Well once ReCore got the atrocious load times sorted. Crackdown 3 was just another open world power fantasy but sometimes it’s nice to jump into a game where you can turn your brain off and just go for...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Hades, everyone go play it!! It’s from Supergiant Games the makers of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre. (Which enough for me to purchase right there). But it’s pretty damn fun, has all their usual hallmarks (good music, isometric, beautiful 2.5D) and is a bit of a roguelike, but does have a...

    Super Mario 3D Allstars

    Digital Foundry has a video on the collection. They’re guessing at an AI solution upping some of the textures and what not. My complaint is with Sunshine and the nozzle switch still being mapped to X but having the GameCube button icon. My brain goes to the GC controller layout where X is to...

    Next Gen Consoles

    I’ll probably go disc because I’m stupid and small brain says “more functionality>less functionality” even though physical media is now the minority for me. I still just really like getting physical editions for certain things though. For example I have physical versions of Persona 5 and Dark...

    EA Announces Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond

    Well they went and made Titanfall which really isn’t that like CoD. I kinda want a campy one now. Like Inglorious Basterds. Actually, semi related, Return to Castle Wolfenstein could do with a good ole remake.

    I’ll be waiting until at least the weekend. I rely on my phone to get my ass up in the morning for work so a bit too much paranoia to update prior to working.

    Super Mario 3D Allstars

    That’s my thought/hope as well but Nintendo is a bit of a wildcard in terms of actually caring about demand.

    Super Mario 3D Allstars

    My problem with this collection is that it sounds like even the digital release will only be available for purchase until March 2021. I somewhat understand a limited run on physical copies but to limit digital sales just reeks of bullshit. I think the Mario Kart RC thing allows you to...

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    Just for random trivia on this, a little game know as Gunpoint was a one man dev team and wildly successful on steam to the point he was able to quit his day job. I have no clue if he’s still developing or not. This was a few years back.

    Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! Running real time on Playstation 5

    I’d say my time was split. PC wise I definitely fell into what you’re saying and the benchmarking my rig trap. I still played plenty though, mostly though that was games that just ran well without troubleshooting. Console wise it’s similar. More games just run but I still spend way too much...

    Unreal Engine 5 Revealed! Running real time on Playstation 5

    What fallacy? You implied that to enjoy console graphics is childish (hence outgrowing them) and they rebutted that your platform elitism is childish and maybe you should just let people enjoy what they want to enjoy. I.E. not being a prick about people enjoying console graphics. PCs are...
