    Looking for a gaming laptop

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 March 2019

    My laptop is about to die. The a and b keys don't work anymore, left shift is broken, the gpu (740M) overheats after 10 minutes of use and the hdd is so slow it takes 15 minutes to reboot (100% disk usage making it unresponsive). I see a couple gaming laptops available at best buy. No clue if good and what the difference is between gtx 1050, 1060 and 1080. I don't care about 4K, just want stable...

    DOOM VFR impressions

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 02 December 2017

    I played it for 90 minutes or so tonight and the F in VFR definitely stands for frustrating.First of all it looks great (played on pro). The action is fast paced and feels authentic. The atmosphere feels a little less authentic as I'm used to dark and gritty Doom. So far in this version everything is pretty bright and well lit. Not the Doom I remember. (Doom 3 is the last I played) Luckily the...

    Sunday afternoon

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 30 October 2017

    It's fall, cold outside, mostly overcast, looks like it might rain. Perfect time for videogames. However neither of my kids wanted to play in handheld mode. Since I still had my old TV around I figured might as well make use of it and moved it back into the livingroom temporarily. It's glitchy with a blue dot pattern over the screen but my kids don't care. It's kinda nice, starting to sound like...

    Is OLED worth the price?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 22 September 2017

    My 9 year old 52" 1080p tv in the livingroom is not doing so good anymore. A blue pixel pattern and fainter red blotches are overlaid on the entire screen like a bad film grain effect, digital noise. Apparently one of the control boards deep inside the tv might have to be replaced, however with it also suffering from horizontal banding issues for a while now it's time for a replacement.I've been...

    GT Sport VR trailer, false advertising?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 18 August 2017

    I'm glad Sony is finally doing some marketing for PSVR by bringing out a trailer for GT Sport https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHvI7PGtw8oHowever they stated before only one on one races will be support. The video clearly shows more cars on track... So is it false advertising or was one on one only meant for multiplayer? I would assume it's misleading as removing the other cars from the...

    How many games do you have installed, ready to play?

    Last week I already hit the limit on my 8 month old ps4 pro, cannot download, full. It's surprisingly difficult to delete stuff, maybe I'll play that again soon... Don't want to install that again and redownload the patches... How many games/apps do you have installed just in case you feel like playing it?I made a quick inventory:On my laptop: Steam 186 GB of games, 50 installed out of 95,...

    Rumor: LA Noir remaster XB1, PS4, NS, PSVR, 1st person

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 June 2017

    According to sources at WWG, Rockstar Games is planning on a L.A Noire remaster for PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Reports on a remaster of the 2011 crime thriller date back to January, with one in particular claiming the L.A. Noire remaster would ship in late summer. Furthermore, it has also been suggested that the game will also support PlayStation VR, and include a...

    A new low?

    in General Discussion, last active on on 23 June 2017

    It's been a week since anyone complained about the adds on this site, so I'll start this time. This site has reached a new low, not only is it jumping up and down while refreshing adds, now it's also moving sideways while trying to read anything. Adds are also coming in from the bottom and in the past week I've been redicrected to some dodgy survey site multiple times. Really VGChart, how low can...

    PD disappoints again

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 17 June 2017

    Finally there are some details about PSVR support for GT Sport and it's pretty disappointing. At E3 last week, legendary series producer Kazunori Yamauchi of developer Polyphony Digital revealed that the game would only support one-on-one races in VR. Yamauchi noted that VR’s “really high rendering loads” made it hard to support the entire game in VR. Without PSVR you can...

    Differences between PS4 Pro and XbOX reveal.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 17 June 2017

    Perhaps it's just my imagination, yet the reception of the fanbases seems completely different?When the pro was revealed, a lot of people weren't keen on mid gen refreshes. Splitting the userbase, more work for game developers, most won't put a lot of effort in pro versions, paying twice to play the same games, it's just the same game in higher res. Now the XbOX is announced, none of those...

    Virtual reality vs Backwards compatibility

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 23 June 2017

    The only real difference between ps4 and xbox one atm is Virtual reality vs backwards compatibility. Sony is looking towards the future while MS caters to the past. Both are quite niche in practice, 1.7% of ps4 owners own psvr vs less than 5% of game time is spend on BC on XBox One. Ofcourse VR costs you an arm and a leg while BC is free.I'm all into VR, no time to play old games unless...

    What's your internet consumption

    in General Discussion, last active on on 06 June 2017

    Today my isp got me again. We were on a 270gb monthly cap which seems quite a bit but with 2 kids streaming daily, multiple home consoles sucking down ever larger patches and Netflix adding to the pile at 3GB per hour it was only a matter of time before going over again. What my isp failed to mention was that their already expensive overage charge of $1.50 per GB is now $5.00 per GB. Meaning an...

    Why did the WiiU fail?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 12 June 2017

    Watching my kids play, the WiiU still gets the most attention. Even lego games that we have on both ps4 and WiiU (I'm a bit impulsive sometimes when it comes to sales...) they prefer to play on the WiiU. It runs slower, but the gamepad is the differentiator. Especially since they both get to play on a full screen instead of splitscreen. And it's not just lego games, my 5 year old is actually...

    What's a game worth nowadays?
