@  Goldenheart : (29 July 2016 - 09:38 AM) I passed a big box truck today. (Like a big Uhaul but with a semi cab/engine on the front.) It was jet black with the Destiny logo on it and the words "Next Year" on it and all kinds of panels. Looked like the kind that open up all over to reveal big monitors for a publicity tour. I couldn't get a pic of it though. Traffic was too hairy at that moment & my phone wasn't handy.
@  d2_s : (02 August 2016 - 07:21 AM) Destiny 2 promotion?
@  Goldenheart : (03 August 2016 - 06:50 AM) I rather expected someone to have heard something about something. Since they want Destiny to be a 10yr thing, I'd assume it's a BIG DLC event coming. Wouldn't Destiny 2 just split the user base?
@  Goldenheart : (03 August 2016 - 06:52 AM) Not Destiny related, but how do I post a pic from my hard drive? I want to contribute to the Stupid Video thread but can't figure out how to post this amusing pic I took.
@  d2_s : (05 August 2016 - 12:05 AM) If you took the pic you'll need to upload it to a hosting site and link to it there. As for Destiny 2, it's out next year I think. Maybe its a promotion for the Rise of Iron dlc coming September?
@  Brandino : (12 August 2016 - 12:03 AM) Anyone pre ordering Gears of War 4?
@  TonyDP : (12 August 2016 - 04:15 PM) I never cared much for the Gear franchise; I was mainly into single player games and they had low longevity in that regard. I'm waiting to see more of the game before I commit.
@  TonyDP : (12 August 2016 - 04:16 PM) Been playing No Man's Sky on the PS4. Not everyone's cup of tea but the mostly relaxed, laid back pace of the game really agrees with me. Always wanted a game where I could explore the universe and this one fills that niche for now.
@  Goldenheart : (13 August 2016 - 01:00 AM) I'm still working on my 360 backlog. Just discovered how awesome Saints Row IV is! I haven't been online in a long time, are any patches worth installing? I hate it when they add glowy points to draw me in just to find out it's a marker to let me know DLC would be here IF I had bought it. It's awesome as it is though. :D
@  Goldenheart : (13 August 2016 - 01:22 AM) I see MS is has a Dead Rising Triple pack for pre-order for XB1. 1,2, & 2 Off the Record. I was excited to see them getting some attention... then I saw the graphics are unchanged. Just the 3 360 games for $60!!! Totally lame MS! Why bother to bundle at that price? They aren't backwards compatible either.
@  d2_s : (16 August 2016 - 10:29 PM) @B I'm burnt out on Gears. I know it's supposed to be one of the most technically accomplished games on the bone, but I don't know too much else about it and am not too interested. I may oick it up cheap at a later date.
@  d2_s : (16 August 2016 - 10:33 PM) @Tony Agree with you about NoMan's Sky. The sense of scale and seemless way one is able to traverse through a vast universe is like nothing else on PS4. That accomplishment trumps all the game's shortfalls for me and it will be interesting to see how the developers expand the gameplay side of things.
@  TonyDP : (24 August 2016 - 08:19 PM) Yeah D2, I'm a bit taken aback by all the anger directed at the game. Now I didn't follow it too closely during development, only watching the occasional movie and reading the occasional preview. Maybe they did promise a lot of stuff that didn't make it in but the final product also does have a lot to see and do. I have 30 hours into it so even if I don't ever pick it up again I still feel I got my money's worth. Also curious to see what improvements we get once they iron out the major bugs.
@  TonyDP : (24 August 2016 - 08:21 PM) Anybody try Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? I really enjoyed the last Deus Ex game so I'll be picking this one up at some point. Probably going to get the PS4 version as it is supposed to look and perform slightly better. I read the PC version supports steroscopic 3D; wish I had a rig that could run it but I've been away from PC gaming so long I'd have no idea where to begin to put together a PC that could run it in 3D with respectable performance.
@  d2_s : (25 August 2016 - 02:41 AM) I picked it up on PS4, but I'm still waiting on it. Reviews seem mostly postive, but there's been a bit of controversy over the game's micro transaction system. Not sure it really affects gameplay too much if at all though.
@  ermac666 : (26 August 2016 - 09:25 PM) I picked up The king of fighters xiv on the ps4. It's an exclusive, and it plays great like most kof games, and has like 50 characters. Love the game!
@  ermac666 : (27 August 2016 - 10:00 PM) KOF XIV is such a joy to play. The graphics will not blow you away, although there are some nice looking backgrounds, but the gameplay is awesome. Unlike some games, you get all the characters at launch. *hint**hint*
@  d2_s : (27 August 2016 - 10:04 PM) Nice one ermac. KOF XIV looks really good. I will get it for sure when either I see a discounted physcial copy or if there's a digital sale. It's $100 in my territory, which is more than I am prepared to pay on principal. Please feel free to share impressions and tell us about what single play modes/content it has :)
@  ermac666 : (28 August 2016 - 01:27 AM) $100.
@  ermac666 : (28 August 2016 - 01:27 AM) For physical copy? If that is the case, go digital.

Digital foundry built a PC using ps4 neo-type specs, and you can see the frame rate breakdown as you read the article. It could comfortably run games at 1080p and exceed 60 fps, and it does ok in 1440p as well. However, in 4k it runs between 20-30 fps.Link:

I hear you GH. Fortunately, it looks like some impact will be able to be made due to the political instability within China at present. Xi Jinping (the current CCP leader) is purging his political enemies in the form of the so called anti-corruption campaign he's been waging in recent years. The positive by-product of this is that his political enemies happen to be the previous leadership lead...

It seems the price of the normal Xbox ones have dropped at least $20. As low as $280 now, $300 for the 1TB version. Both come with a game.

I suspect a big part of why MS and Sony have gone this route is due to the expense issue you mentioned above. Afterall, they are both customers of AMD and they must have been made aware well ahead of time if AMD upgrading its processes etc. I'm sure this was on the cards all along.

Good point, but I'm definitely talking about blur that's not present when viewed on my CRT HDTV. After a few years of gaming on my LCD HDTV & then going back to my CRT, everything just "popped" and looked more real cuz it stayed sharp even when things moved. Funny how it took so long to notice the opposite when I 1st made the switch to LCD.From what I've read about plasm...

I just started playing the new blood & wine DLC. It is a nice change of pace, has some new lighting to give that southern europe vibe and the environments are a lot more colorful and richer than the standard game. I heard that this DLC is a pretty big DLC, and could be longer than most full fledged games, which is nice. Took me a while to get used to the witcher 3's gameplay mechanics and upgra...

This isn't what you're talking about, but there is also a version of Cards Against Humanity that can be played via www.airconsole.com. Basically your browser is the game console, and your smartphones/tablets are the controllers. It is stupid slick, and they have a few other fun games you can play. On your computer/smarttv/console you can go to the site in your browser, then it generates a code...

The wife and I went to see "The Nice Guys" last week. I really enjoyed that movie! There was such a broad range of comedy as well as a fun setting and plot.
