@  TonyDP : (11 November 2017 - 03:59 PM) I don't do PC gaming so it's easier for me to justify having the best MS and Sony consoles I can get. FWIW, even with a 1080p TV I can still easily see improvements in games. Tomb Raider now has 60fps all the time; Forza Horizon 3 has nice reflections in the cars that didn't show up on my Xbox One S, etc. Once I get a 4K TV I'm sure the visual upgrades will be even more pronounced.
@  kyle_5_16 : (13 November 2017 - 12:28 AM) lol @TonyDP your first two responses are hilarious read back to back. Didn't take you long at all to come around to it
@  TonyDP : (13 November 2017 - 05:09 PM) Like I said, I have no willpower. Still, the X1X is nice; I was playing some Hitman on it yesterday and the graphical effects were in a completely new league.
@  d2_s : (14 November 2017 - 04:47 AM) I have no regrets getting the X, it’s a fantastic system. Light on exclusives for sure, but a nice replacement for the S and was pleasantly surprised to see some 360 games getting a Faux-K makeover. Fallout 3 and Mirrors Edge look like new games running on the S.
@  d2_s : (14 November 2017 - 04:48 AM) Running on the X I meant :)
@  TonyDP : (14 November 2017 - 05:08 PM) Fallout 3 looks and runs really nicely on the X1X
@  Brandino : (21 November 2017 - 01:11 AM) I been playing a lot of Ghost Recon Wildlands lately... that game has a lot of content and is quite fun to play multiplayer with the right people.   It's very satisfying to clear out an area undetected and synching shots.
@  ermac666 : (25 November 2017 - 11:55 PM) assassins creed origins has a good atmosphere.Felt more engaged with the egyptian environments than the previous 2 games's city style environments.
@  TonyDP : (27 November 2017 - 07:14 PM) Been playing Assassin's Creed Origin on my XB1X; definitely the best AC game since Brotherhood. Although I hate snakes so the tombs are particularly sketchy for me.
@  TonyDP : (01 December 2017 - 05:45 PM) Doom VFR with an DS4 is pretty much the ultimate VR FPS experience. It gives you full locomotion with the analog sticks, dash with the D-Pad and teleport all at the same time, allowing you to chain some pretty sick moves and kills.
@  d2_s : (09 December 2017 - 04:28 AM) Agree about Origins, one of Ubisofts best releases in a while IMO.
@  d2_s : (09 December 2017 - 04:29 AM) I really need to try Doom VFR. It’s on my list along with Skyrim to try next.
@  d2_s : (09 December 2017 - 04:39 AM) @B Glad you’re enjoying Wildlands. Found it hard to enjoy personally. That map size though :O Looks really nice on the X1X
@  colonel_j2020 : (04 January 2018 - 08:49 PM) Happy new year all!!!!
@  Brandino : (05 January 2018 - 08:01 PM) Happy new years!!  Has anyone bought a Switch yet and if so? Worth the price?
@  TonyDP : (07 January 2018 - 06:24 PM) Happy New Year. A colleague at work showed me his Switch a couple of weeks ago. The hardware was impressive, but I've zero interest in portable gaming or Nintendo's IPs and I think Switch games like Doom and Skyrim are way overpriced considering they look better on other platforms.
@  ermac666 : (08 January 2018 - 06:44 AM) I have stopped buying nintendo console for a while. The gamecube was my last nintendo console, and it was a powerhouse that could compete in terms of performance. I want this nintendo back, not the post-gamecube, wii nintendo.
@  colonel_j2020 : (11 January 2018 - 05:49 PM) My one friend has a switch that he says is collecting dust after he finished zelda and mario odyssey.  I think it depends on how many games you are interested in personally.
@  d2_s : (13 January 2018 - 04:41 AM) Belated Happy New Year HDTVArcaders!
@  d2_s : (13 January 2018 - 04:48 AM) @B Whether the Switch! is worth it depends on how into Portable gaming you are and how important Nintendo’s IPs are to you IMHO. As novel as it is to have games like Doom or Skyrim on a handheld device, for someone like me-who rarely plays portable-it’s not worth it when those games are better on other platforms. I’d personally wait until the library is more fleshed out and you can get a better price. Only reason I got mine somearly was for Zedla.

I’m really looking forward to these updates. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this game, I thought I wasn’t going to like it -being online focused - but I’ve ended up playing it more than any other racer in a long while. The racing and handling is absolutely spot on and it doesn’t hurt that it’s absolutely gorgeous. The livery editor combined with the photo...

Halo 5 multiplayer is definitely one if not the best multiplayer I've ever played on a console... the continual updates and free add on content really makes it shine. Gears however... wow what a stinker the last one was. Absolutely zero creativity on the level design and it was boring and not much of a looker.

Yeah, discord is honestly pretty amazing IMO. I set up a server for my twitch/youtube community and the ease/speed of setting up an organized community is great, and the features for sharing/communicating/interacting are nice.

Bioware said that they have a 10 year plan with Anthem. Now where have I heard that line before? Like you said, they have their work cut out for them, especially after the dasappointing Mass Effect Andromeda. Personally, I have little interest in another 1,000 hour grindfest like Destiny. That was fun once but I do not want to give up all my gaming time to one title anymore.As for X...

I picked up Star Trek Bridge Crew last week and did some online missions over the weekend. As a longtime Trekkie this was like candy for me and I ate it up. Just sitting in the captain's chair on the original bridge was quite the trip. There are all kinds of little easter eggs for Trek fans and the visuals are quite impressive and immersive. I did a few online MP missions and had a lot of fun a...

I get what you mean. Not an easy game to master if you want to boost and do crazy things like that. Requires a lot of practice, stage awareness, good memory, fast reflexes and good timing to ace these stages in style. You will need to spend a lot of time doing that. You could also play it the traditional way, but these games are meant to be played fast paced. Classic sonic would suit most of us...

They really should have just waited and launched with this feature. I'm just thankful all PS4 consoles are finally getting external hard drive support.

I always liked playing such games at the arcade.
