    Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    Anyone else interested in this? I used to love the GC game way back in college. Picking this up thinking the wife and I might play it together. Amazon physical copies are delayed until March 24th, but no biggie for me.

    The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners

    Haven't picked this up yet, but may check it out with my Boneworks refund money. A bit more expensive, but apparently a lot more "game" than Boneworks from what I've heard. Anyone have any experience with this one? It's getting some pretty rave reviews.

    2080S + CPU or 2080 Ti?

    If I'm going to spend ~$1000-1500 on upgrades, and I'm running a 4790K at 4.6 GHz, would I be better suited getting a 9900KF and a 2080 Super, or just going for the 2080 Ti alone? Pretty much all for gaming, 1440p but may go 4K in the future.

    Logitech G29 + Shifter combo @ Rakuten - $234.97 FS

    Found this over on SD - was looking at getting this wheel for a long time, and currently there is a deal for just the wheel on Newegg for around $188, but with shipping and tax it brought the price up too far. This seems like a better deal, since you also get the shifter which is ~$60 itself...

    RAID Woes with Asus P6T Deluxe (v1)

    Wasn't really sure where to post this, but we'll try here. I recently rotated my i7 920 build out of "main PC" use, so I was going to reuse it as a storage / VM box to play around on. Using the Asus P6T Deluxe original version with the SAS controller. I did a full CMOS reset and started from...

    5.1 PCM via optical possible?

    I just bought a set of Logitech Z-906s (still rocking the 5.1 setup) and connected to my Sound Blaster Zx via optical cable. Found out that to get 5.1 audio you have to have a Dolby or DTS source, which most PC games apparently do not support. So, is it possible to get 5.1 PCM output via...

    Fanatical Staff Picks of 2018 Bundle - Up to 5 games, starting at $1

    Some really excellent deals here. The big one for me was The Sexy Brutale, which looks amazing. Some other good picks in there as well, and super cheap. Get one game on the list for $1, 3 games for $2.49, and 5 games for $3.49. Less than a dollar per game at higher levels...

    Just in Time Incorporated

    Didn't see a thread for this, actually a pretty fun little game. Fairly basic, but some of the puzzles did give me a bit of a challenge. Seems like it'd be a good game to demo VR to people, like Job Simulator and The Lab. Half off currently, worth the <$8 IMO.

    Bunch of 2 TB HDDs, best RAID/array solution?

    I've been coming into a lot of 2 TB enterprise drives recently and was thinking of getting an array going. Looking for an inexpensive (sub-$100) solution to build an array, ideally maximizing storage space with a bit of redundancy (RAID 5/6?). This would primarily be for media / general file...

    HyperV takes forever to Start/Stop

    Hello, Just starting to play with HyperV for the first time - got a rig up and running to play with, and it seems like regardless of the VM I try to spin up, it takes like 10-20 minutes for it to start or stop. Is this normal? I wouldn't say the machine is particularly slow, but it's not...

    WTB: LGA 1150 Motherboard for 4790K

    Hello, Recently came into possession of a 4790K and some RAM, so I need a motherboard to use with it. Not looking for anything too crazy, just something for a spare machine to do some testing on, probably nothing gaming-related. Sub-$100 would be ideal. Must have 4 DIMM slots, though, and...

    Bethesda at it again... (paid mods)

    Surprised I didn't see any thread or conversation about this - Bethesda announced in their E3 the intention of adding a paid mod system to Skyrim and Fallout 4. I seem to recall they tried this before and it did not turn out well for them... I think the downvotes say it all. I don't really...

    WTB: 1030 / 1050 / 1050 Ti for 4K HTPC

    Gents and ladies, As the thread title says, looking to upgrade my HTPC card to something that will decode 4K 10-bit HEVC - the current 970 is not cutting it. I can get a 1030 brand new for around $70 right now, but if I could find a 1050 or 1050 Ti for a good deal on here I would be more...

    Rick and Morty VR - April 20th

    My body is ready. No idea on price (my guess is somewhere between $20-30) but it looks like a wacky good time. Same studio who did Job Simulator.

    Steam VR Anniversary Sale

    4K HEVC Playback

    So, I recently purchased a 4K TV and tried playing some 4K video on my HTPC with disappointing results. The video is either completely choppy/unwatchable or still exhibits stutter, depending on the video sample. Specs: Phenom II X4 965 Black 8 GB DDR3 GTX 970 It appears my HTPC will not play...

    X:Rebirth - VR Version coming H1 2017

    This game had mixed reviews when it came out, but after many patches and expansions...maybe it's good now? Either way, could be pretty cool in VR.

    Vive Wireless Kit Coming soon...$220 and 1.5 hour battery life with a larger pocket battery coming later. Thoughts? Personally getting rid of the cable is not worth $220 to me, and the battery life of abysmal. But it's progress and I can appreciate that.

    Microsoft VR headsets for Windows 10 - starting at $299

    John Wick Chronicles - Coming Feb. 2017 to Vive

    This has definitely caught my attention. Might just be something like a wave shooter (not really clear at this point), but graphically looks very good and I loved John Wick.

    Space Odyssey - Upcoming VR Title from Neil DeGrasse Tyson

    VR Games Worth a Second Look

    Raw Data 0.3 - Crashes / Terrible performance after patch

    I haven't played this game too much, but before the latest patch I was able to run SS at max in game (2.0) and get decent performance. Now, the game has all sorts of problems. -If SS is enabled in the Steam config, the game doesn't even run right. Massive stutter and everything looks tiny...

    Obduction - New game from Cyan Worlds, creator of Myst

    This just came out today - didn't see any thread for it other than a KS from 2013. Obduction ® on Steam Only a $30 title so not $60 like certain other "indie" titles recently... :p So far the reviews are very positive. I picked it up myself and graphically this game is quite stunning...

    Best quiet 140mm case fans?

    See title - looking to find out what the best 140mm case fans are these days. I have a couple of Corsair AF ones but they seem like they are starting to buzz or something, quite annoying. I've been out of the fan game for awhile so I'm not sure what is good these days. Not looking to spend a...

    AMD Testing a 4K, 120 Hz VR HMD

    Very interesting: UPDATE: AMD Working on 4K, 120Hz VR HMD | VRFocus Apparently it's not AMD's display but the specs are supposedly correct. My question is, how are we going to push 4K times 2 at 120 FPS? That just seems crazy at this point in time. I imagine technologies like nVidia's SMP...

    "Image Not Available"

    Not sure if this was reported yet, but when I click on FPN links that have photos, and then click the thumbnails, it just says "Image Not Available" on the page that opens. Seems to happen with all of these links.

    Best Tablet <$400?

    Got to play with an iPad a bit and while I still hate iOS, the idea of an Android tablet is looking appealing to me, for the right price. Been doing a bit of research on tablets, and so far the Galaxy Tab S is looking pretty good. Anyone have any experience with either the 8.4" or the 10.5"...

    Used SSD Issues - Fixable or Refund?

    Hey guys, Bought a gently used SSD on eBay (I know, eBay is shit, couldn't find one elsewhere) to match my other one for RAID 0. They are Samsung 830 256GB. When I plug in the new drive, Windows hangs at boot (with no change to AHCI vs RAID mode in BIOS). I also notice that it shows up as...

    Current best 120/140mm case fans?

    I'm sure these kinds of threads pop up once in awhile, but I didn't see a recent one. I just upgraded my rig and put it all into a Corsair C70. Nice case, but it doesn't come with a lot in terms of stock cooling. So my question is, what are the current best 120mm and 140mm case fans that are...
