$50 and $20
VT2000 dock (meh but still more than $50)
500gb SATA 2.5" SSD (not too bad and again more than $20)
And of course, data vault...I have a few drives sitting on my desk. MIGHT be useful, probably not.
Sad I didn't get a video card or a VT2000 but no overly disappointed.
I really liked the "extra" in Shadow. It only added to the story. The history of a place that is known to have existed in history but is not found yet today. So all the mythology based on some level of history just sucked me in. History nerd, so maybe that's why I enjoyed it. ;)
Picked up Spider-Man Remastered and other than a few weird glitches after a few hours of play....which oddly is the same issue I have with God of War, it plays beautifully! Both those games seem to hang and/or slow down for a 10-15 seconds after a few hours of continuous play, then they are...
So many games...I have done more gaming aside from MMO stuff since I got my Deck than in a long time. Thought I'd play more platformers but ended playing more AAA titles.
Guardians of the Galaxy (finished off last 3 chapters I've been sitting on for ages then deleted)
Mass Effect Legendary...
Got mine Sunday (512gb model) and absolutely loving it. Got Epic working on it. Got Final Fantasy 7 Remake working!
Very surprised how well games work at high quality. Framerates in 40-50fps range easily and since I mostly single play on it that's fine for me.
Got a skin off etsy...
I'm still (im)patiently waiting. I got mine ordered in first 30 min, and still Q2. No date shenanigans with mine thankfully. 512gb order though so already know they are fewer on manufacture but I can hope that I get my email 4/4 right?
I just sold my old 5820k/x99 build. A friend's kid wanted a cheaper than new gaming machine and I had it sitting in it's box no idea what to do with it. This teen got basically a full system (minus case) with a 980ti and he's loving every minute of gaming with his dad now.
I ran 5280k at 4.4 at 1.275v from release until March this year when I got a Microcenter deal on a 10850k that I couldn't resist or I'd still be on it. Right now it's sitting in a box until I figure out what I want to do with it.
I'm curious about them removing the data port completely. Certain things like restoring can't be done easily without a USB connection to a computer. They'd also have to move iOS into the MacOS ability to restore OTA.
The current top tier plan supports 4K and HDR and if they remove it from that I'm going to be a very unhappy subscriber. My guess is yes, that will be the case so I'll be calling and raising hell about it. I've been paying for 4K and HDR already. Creating an all new tier to offer the same is...
These articles make me laugh. Nearly everyone I know has an Xbox One (I have 2 - a day one and an X). I have 2 friends that have PS4's and that's it. I agree Sony has sold more, but I think the scale is off.
This is the first expansion since Lich King I have made it two content patches in without bailing. While I still play on a casual schedule with 3.5 hours in 2 nights raiding - first night of Tomb tonight - and then maybe 2-3 hours the rest of the week total. With that I have a 904/901 ret/prot...
Corsair case, memory, aio watercooling, keyboard, mouse and headset. Even psu but it's not modular. Each component has served me well and even with keyboard and headset failures got replacements under warranty quick!
I have a TP-Link AC3150 router. I was recently given a Netgear Nighthawk AC3200 by my mother in law (she is a tech geek and always has to have the biggest and best...go figure). It's sitting in the box and probably will for a very long time based on these.
I knew it was CGI. However I was impressed. My wife mocked me for how many times I said wow. This was in Real3D. While it was obviously CGI, the detail was impeccable. Really the only thing missing was the "spark" of life. The eyes looked a little hollow and lifeless. Other than that...
I live about 6 miles from it. LOL I drive by it twice a day to and from work. With traffic and long hours at work, I will pick it up tomorrow and go from there.
That's a thought too but since NVME is getting cheaper and my EVO isn't QUITE full tossing in my wife's Z97 machine is fine.
