    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    It has been a while since a COD interested me enough to pick it up. I've played to level 26 or so and watched many streams. It is one of the best COD games in a long time. Is it perfect? No, but at least you don't have to buy the battle pass or other DLC on top of the base game to play...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Well, I decided to buy through the Rockstar launcher directly, so I knew that the launcher was working before buying the game... The first time I started the launcher after installing, it failed to start. LOL. Restarted my PC and it is fine now, must have been an issue with the prerequisites...

    Pixel 4 thread for actual owners only

    I have had my clearly white Pixel 4 XL 128GB for a couple days now and I am very happy with the upgrade from my Pixel 3 XL... At this point I have had the Google Pixel 1XL, 2XL, 3XL... -Speakers are better and possibly some of the best smartphone speakers period, no distortion issues, the...

    Who else annoyed with Apple obsoleting your device?

    Such a hard discussion... Personally I had an iPhone 6 for a work phone. The battery was very unreliable in the last year I used the phone, cold or even cool weather made the battery pretty much shut down while in my pocket.... The phone pretty much had to live on a battery pack while I was...

    Pixel 4

    So far after day one, I find the battery life is better than my Pixel 3 XL. I'm almost positive that all of the predicted battery woes are a bit overblown. More battery life is always welcome but it doesn't feel like a step back. In fact I had worse battery life on my Pixel 3 XL than my 2 XL...

    Pixel 4

    Well, I just got my Pixel 4 XL. So far, I am happy when the my decision. It feels nice in the hand and I live not having a notch again. The speakers don't vibrate the rear panel of the phone as much as the Pixel 3, don't vibrate the screen As much as the Pixel 2 and seem to sound clear...

    Is my new Pixel 3 Defective?

    You really want a USB PD capable charger (USB C to USB C cable required) IMHO. Charging from a PCs port has been an unreliable experience for years in my experience (back to Galaxy note 2). Lots of PC ports will tend to output 500ma which isn't enough to charge and use the phone... Some can do...

    Pixel 4

    It's a weird time to release a new phone. They literally just cleaned up the Pixel 3 experience with android 10.... I was having worse performance than my Pixel 2 XL prior to Android 10... Heck, every time I launched the camera, everything went haywire with apps closing and stutter...

    Android 10 released!

    I love dark mode on everything, we are a step closer. I like the gesture navigation option they added (you have to change it in settings). Having a gesture for back instead of reaching for the button is amazing. The only app I have that doesn't work properly so far is my bank's... The mobile...

    CONTROL (Remedy)

    I picked this game up today after watching one of the streamers I follow play it. I think the Max Payne comparison seems fair, similar style game. It's been a while since I played a good game like this. I spent a while messing with the detail settings to get in the ~ 60FPS range at 4k. I...

    One chair to rule them all?

    I have a Steelcase Gesture at home and a Herman Miller Embody at work. I like both. Both will easily last more than 5 years... More like 20 years +...

    Quake II RTX

    I dug out my Quake 2 CD and played this. Pretty cool actually.

    21:9 V. 16:9 Curved: Thoughts?

    Really, some of this is up to personal opinion, but I'll share my experience. I used a Samsung 275T 27" 1920x1200 display for ~10 years. I upgraded to an Asus PG348q 34" Ultrawide (3440x1440). For gaming here are my observations: 1. Some games lack ultra wide support, even some new games...

    Forza Horizon 4

    The Forza Horizon series has proven to be one of my favorite game series. I shelled out for the Ultimate edition of Horizon 4 and so far it has felt fairly worthwhile, though I agree, Fortune island wasn't the best. I have enjoyed what I have played of the Leo island stuff so far. Kind of...

    Voice over an LTE network data connection VoLTE

    Sound quality on VOLTE when you are calling other phones with VOLTE is significantly better (higher quality voice codec). Calling landlines, not really noticeable for the most part. Calls connect faster and your data connection doesn't fall back to the slower 3G network when you are in a call...

    Pixel 2 XL USB port

    Most likely lint stuck inside the port. I like to use one of those thin plastic dental floss picks to carefully clean my ports out. I've actually had more issues with this on my work iPhone lightning port than my Pixel Devices with their USB C ports. No amount of blowing or sucking will...

    If money was no concern, what gaming headset to get?

    That is how I hear them described. I haven't heard DT770s myself to compare.

    If money was no concern, what gaming headset to get?

    I used to use Sennheiser HD 650s for gaming and I LOVE them. I paired them with a Blue Yeti. The issue I ran into was it was hard to avoid extra noise (computer, surroundings, keyboard etc.) from feeding through the mic as well as the open air headphones. I ended up buying a Beyerdynamics MMX...

    Forza Street F2P for W10 users

    I love the Forza series. When this comes out for Android, I might give it a try. It really sounds like that is the audience they are targeting, they just had the windows version ready first.... The theme reminds me of a Need for Speed game though, that is a bit weird for the Forza series.

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    Yea, I went from a GTX 980 to my RTX 2080 ti. I'm pretty happy. I feel like it is a good match for my 1440p ultrawide monitor too. The GTX 980 struggled, a lot...

    RCS. How is it working for you?

    I gave my mother my Pixel 2 XL when I got my Pixel 3 XL. We are on the same carrier (Rogers), RCS works seamlessly and I have not had any issues. Faster than SMS, images look better, typing notifications, read/received status etc. No one else that sends me messages has RCS, LOL. I do hope...

    Cheapest good quality headphone mic for gaming

    I have some Beyerdynamic MMX300s and I think they pretty much fit the bill for what you are looking for. I used to game on some Sennheiser HD 650s and a Blue Yeti mic. The mic on the MMX 300 is way more suited for gaming and still sounds great. Now people hear only my voice and not the...

    Should I Wait to Buy a 27in Gaming Monitor?

    Just FYI the Nvidia 2080 ti FE cones with a display port to DVI adapter. I use it for my secondary monutor, it works fine. If you have another card that doesn't come with the adapter, you should be able to find an adapter that will do the trick....

    Nvidia Claims Latest BFV Update Can Increase RTX Performance by 40%

    DLSS worked for me on my 3440 x 1440 monitor on my 2080 ti.. As per my post aboca, it looks horrible and I would avoid using it. Probably turn other options down if I am running short on frame rate...

    Nvidia Claims Latest BFV Update Can Increase RTX Performance by 40%

    DLSS was available for me on my 2080ti at 3440x1440... It looks terrible man. At first I was like I thought I remember BFV looking sharper... then I looked in the options and saw DLSS was on. I turned it off and it's instantly nice and sharp... Having said that on the map I was playing I was...

    Future Windows 10 Builds Will Reserve Storage and Tabulate It

    I am very excited about this. It will stop users from filling their local OS drive storage to the point where monthly Windows updates fail. Less work for me... 7GB sounds a little conservative though since servicing updates can take more than that, but it's good for the monthly updates at any...

    Is the RTX 2080 Ti a "grass greener on the other side" type scenario? Or are you enjoying it?

    I am happy with my Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition... I had some BSOD issues with the drivers that were available when I got it a few weeks ago. I haven't had any issues in a while now and everything seems OK after the last couple of driver updates. The card actually runs quieter while...

    Destiny 2

    I'm down to try it out for free. I played Destiny 1 up to Level 10 and put it down, kind of a waste of money. I like looking at the graphics of the game, I'm down to experience Destiny 2, I'll probably be bored of it before level 20 anyhow, so seems like a good deal to me. :)

    Fallout 76

    No Ultra wide support in 2018... Yea, no thanks . I like Fallout 3 and 4 but man, they are the biggest POS games I have ever played. Have to edit config files, just to get ultrawide support on Fallout 4 which isn't that old of a game and disable weapon debris because it crashes the game...

    Whatever happened to cool physical graphics on the graphics cards themselves?

    Yea, I remember those cards. My ATI Radeon HD 4890 and Geforce 8800 GTS had graphics. The 8800 GTS card actually even came with a bad ass T-Shirt too. Those were the days. Those cards cost 1/5th the price of the price of the Geforce RTX 2080 Ti I just bought, LOL.

    RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition available on

    Well, just got my RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition from Nvidia. Predictably everything is much smoother than with the GTX 980 when I start increasing the settings in games. I haven't seen anything that I can't run maxed out and get smooth (60 FPS +) frame rates. I did set resolution scaling in...

    RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition available on

    I ordered an RTX 2080 TI FE from Nvidia on Wednesday. They shipped it yesterday and the scheduled arrival date is on Monday, so guess they have stock. I couldn't find any RTX 2080 TI cards in stock in my area. I hear some complaints about the Nvidia cooler but overall I like the design of the...

    Google Pixel 3

    I should be getting my Pixel 3 XL at the beginning of November. Based on what I've seen so far I feel like this phone will finally have some feature parrity with my old Note 7. I felt like every Pixel device I got after having that phone was a hardware downgrade (except the camera) . I'm...

    83% of Routers Contain Severe Security Issues

    This is one of the key features I like about the Google WIFI system (and a few other WIFI routers at this point). For the general consumer, having a router / WIFI access point that takes care of it's self if of utmost importance because most people NEVER login to check for an update (assuming...

    Someone posted a pic of their kid looking at a 4k screen...

    I wish I could help you pinoopin exactly what you are looking at but I have seen an LG monitor on Linus Tech Tips YouTube channel that can combine 4 1080p inputs onto one 4k display. I saw it most recently in this video. He might have mentioned the model, maybe give it a watch.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    That is a Herman Miller Embody. I personally have one at work and I love it. Definitely worth the money IMHO. I bought a Steelcase Gesture for home but in many ways I find the Herman Miller Embody more comfortable .

    Game Controller Statistics for the PC Gaming Platform

    For FPS games, keyboard and mouse is king for me most of the tine, but racing, adventure, platform and other games are best with a controller . I live my Xbox One controller with the wiilreles dongle. The steam controller was a good concept but I never really cared for it personally.

    Google Pixel 3

    I'll definitely be on the Pixel 3 XL bandwagon. I checked out the Note 9 and, honestly I really just don't like the Samsung Experience UI and the dozens of garbage pre-loaded apps.... I setup my old Note 5 for my mom to use and it downloaded like 8 updates before I could use it individually...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Gets a Battle Royale Trailer

    It's going to take a lot of convincing for me to buy another COD game after getting burned so hard on infinite warfare... Literally hated the multiplayer, none of my friends even bought the game, so I played the single player for a bit and flushed the extra money I spent on season pass, DLC etc...

    Sony Addresses PlayStation 4 Cross-Play Controversy

    How about you let the game development and users decide... I'm pretty sure you can choose to only match with users on the same platform on Fortnite if that is how you wish to play.... Also, the Fortnite locking accounts to PS4.... I bought a PS4 at launch because it was supposed to be the BEST...
