@  d2_s : (08 December 2016 - 08:09 PM) GT3 is possibly my favourite racing game of all time. Can't remember much if its menu system, but it couldn't have been worse than GT5's at launch - that menu system was terrible. Turn 10 certainly know how to deliver quality games on time, but for my money GT games have always felt better on the track and looked better. GT Sport looks to be carrying on that tradition on the visual side, it has undergone an incredible transformation since the last time I saw it. It's gone from looking medicore to possibly the most gorgeous looking racer I have ever seen. Here's hoping by the the time GT7 comes out, Polyphony figure out how to put into a cohesive and compelling package.
@  Brandino : (10 December 2016 - 03:04 AM) I stopped playing Gran Turismo games because the AI ran the same lines and they seemed so lifeless.   For me Gran Turismo has been left in the dust since the PS2 days...
@  d2_s : (10 December 2016 - 06:17 AM) Well, the PS2 days were a long time ago and if you take a real look at present competing products, they really aren't that much better IMHO.
@  ermac666 : (10 December 2016 - 06:45 AM) I always thought that the gran turismo games especially GT5/6 presented the sense of speed a lot better than forza. When the car moves really fast, you can hear the  wind sound effects and the car shaking . It feels so good. Not saying that forza doesn't have a sense of speed, but I like it a lot better than forza. I have always liked that aspect from the recent games. I also liked the GT replays a lot better.
@  Goldenheart : (11 December 2016 - 12:33 AM) Just saw Transformers: 30th Anniv. is now available on Blu-Ray! Sweet!
@  Goldenheart : (27 December 2016 - 04:47 AM) I hope everyone had a merry Christmas!  8)
@  Brandino : (28 December 2016 - 11:51 AM) Did anyone get any good games for x-mas?
@  TonyDP : (28 December 2016 - 09:37 PM) I got Recore ($20), Forza Horizon 3 ($30) and Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition ($30).
@  TonyDP : (01 January 2017 - 05:00 PM) Dear God, the load times on Battlefront are interminable; and when you get into a match you get thrown against players who kill you with one shot before you even see them! Either that or you just time out and get booted from the game. I will never again criticize Destiny's matchmaking; it's a masterpiece compared to Star Wars Battlefront's frustration-fest.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (01 January 2017 - 07:43 PM) Happy New Year, everyone.  And yes, Battlefront is awful.  Play Titanfall 2, instead.  It's the best multiplayer game in years, IMO.  As far as Christmas goes, Santa brought me the 20th anniversary Tomb Raider game.  Not as good as Uncharted 4, but still quite good.
@  Goldenheart : (02 January 2017 - 04:11 AM) Happy New Year Space! & Everyone else! No, no good games for me. Investing in the wife's career has gotten super expensive lately, (doctor) so no gifts. :( We did splurge on a trip to see her brother in NY for New Year's tho. We avoided Times Square tho.
@  colonel_j2020 : (02 January 2017 - 08:27 AM) Happy New Year all! Somehow I am still playing Rocket League and I'm not quite sure why.
@  kyle_5_16 : (03 January 2017 - 12:12 AM) Happy New Year! Rocket League is still pretty much all I play haha. It's so easy to pick up and quit quickly if necessary, and is fun and competitive. I dunno. Here's a recent vid (shameless self promotion lol) https://www.youtube....h?v=gFffvgwPRDM
@  d2_s : (22 January 2017 - 01:42 PM) Just a heads up, seems the moderator functions aren't working as expected and I cant get rid of the current round of spammers.
@  ermac666 : (28 January 2017 - 01:24 AM) Resident evil 7 is pretty damn good. I highly recommend it if you like horror games. It's creepy, the story is interesting, the ambient sounds are unsettling and the environments are well done. It's sort of a return to form. PS4 version runs at a solid 60 fps with no slowdown/lags.
@  ermac666 : (28 January 2017 - 01:25 AM) Gameplay is deep, and puzzles are pretty well paced. There is a very interestinfg "happy birthday" puzzle that I thought was a mind bender when I tried it the first time.
@  TonyDP : (13 February 2017 - 09:43 PM) That puzzle gave me fits, primarily because I could never figure out how to clean the dirty telescope.
@  ermac666 : (17 February 2017 - 11:38 PM) I just wanted to shout out that PS4 exclusive Nioh is pretty damn good. Very atmospheric and nice environments. Hack/slash gameplay is kind of like dark souls with some ninja gaiden twist. The game is hard, but not frustratingly hard. Ambient sound effects/music is well done. I recommend thi s game if you haven't got it yet. It's made by Team Ninja who also made ninja gaiden and dead or alive.
@  ermac666 : (17 February 2017 - 11:39 PM) Action mode is the way to play this game as it is a 60 fps, but at a lower res. Still looks good enough. Movie mode runs at a higher res, but the 30 fps feels slow compared to action mode
@  colonel_j2020 : (20 February 2017 - 11:59 AM) I just got a 1440P 144Hz GSync monitor a week ago and am so glad I did. The higher framerate is quite obvious but the gsync is somewhat unexplainable.  Its smooths things out so nicely when you aren't running a game of full framerate.  Also web browsing is just flatout nicer.

I read about this, but didn't realise there was video footage of the incident.

I've been streaming games for a bit over a year now and decided to try editing down to make things a little more interesting, so here is my own stupid video to add!

That was great.  You have a nice, professional setup, there.  I also liked your intro / outro clip.

Stupid question. What platform do you stream on? I'm assuming Twitch. Going to have to give you a sub.

This new police hot pursuit tool looks ingenious! I've long wondered why no one's been able to figure out some tool like that. Although my ideo was a mounted gun & camera just a couple inches off the ground to take out tires. It's not like a bullet that low would travel far before hitting the ground if they missed.

This Harvard video showcases how immensely complex even a single cell in our body is. It amazes me that even a single cell is sooooooo complex. I saw a similar video a few years back from a pioneer in this kind of imagery. (The walking protein here is part of his work.) He said he had to cut a lot of processes out of the camera's view or else we wouldn't be able to see anything because it's so crowded and full of micro-machines doing stuff.
https://youtu.be/B_zD3NxSsD8

The youtube page doesn't reference Harvard, but the page that led me to it does.

Actually I stream to both Youtube and Twitch:

twitch.tv/thedirewolf35
youtube.com/thedirewolf35

Being streaming to Youtube exclusively for a long time because I couldn't stream to both at the quality I wanted. Recently set up a second dedicated streaming PC out of some stuff I had leftover after my upgrade this summer so I can stream to both now :)

Gizmodo has a video collection of people falling while using VR. I thought sitting down would keep be safe, but the 2nd video proved me wrong.

Definitely not a stupid video, more of an awesome video. A guy remakes a scene from Transformers: The Movie where Unicron transforms Megatron into Galvatron using actual toys and stop motion animation. He uses the high end toys that have individual fingers that can move too. He does an excellent job.

While I had a coworkers Playstation VR I had my mother in law try out Rush Of Blood and during one of the rollercoaster downhill sections she started yelling "someone grab me! someone grab me!" lol. She was sitting down and thought she would fall over.

This one had me in tears by the end, I was laughing so hard.  It's the blooper reel for a local hockey team sponsored by a car dealer, and a mascot keeps falling down.

And this one made me laugh. It's what Arby's did to make up for forgetting to mention Pepsi in their last commercial, which they were contractually obligated to do.

This woman made an amusing VR-related video about losing her loved one to "someone" else.
