@  Goldenheart : (12 September 2017 - 06:30 PM) So... interesting thing happened. We got a new apartment, looked up the local internet providers, dialed Comcast's phone number, and got a message saying the call couldn't be completed as dialed. My wife tried the # on her phone. Same message. We're thinking it's very odd such a big company can't get its own phone number right. We call a 3rd time using an app that acts like a phone. Got right through. It seems AT&T doesn't like its customers dialing Comcast.  :crazy:
@  Brandino : (13 September 2017 - 12:14 AM) I'm finding Destiny 2 as more of an expansion then a true sequel.  It's fun and they fixed a lot of mistakes from the first.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (13 September 2017 - 10:11 AM) Glad to hear Destiny on PS4 is now working for you d2.  You should join LeadBetter and me sometime.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (13 September 2017 - 02:24 PM) And I'm guessing you already have a clan in mind for PS4 Destiny, but if not, you're welcome to join ours.  So far it's myself, LeadBetter, and a group of people that I played a lot of Titanfall 2 with.
@  d2_s : (14 September 2017 - 04:34 PM) @Space cheers. I'm with the same clan I was in the original Destiny. We should play, I wouldn't mind doing the nightfall and rat king quest with you guys if you haven't done them already. Haven't had a chance  to play much this week, but should be ok this weekend.
@  d2_s : (14 September 2017 - 04:35 PM) Happy to raid with you guys too if condtions permit.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:16 PM) So... odd thing happened. We got a new apartment in Philly. I tried to call Comcast to ask about their internet & got a message that my call couldn't be completed as dialed. My wife tried & got the same message. I thought it odd such a big company couldn't get their own ph# right. Then, we dialed using an app that acted like a phone. We got right through. Seems AT&T doesn't like their customers dialing comcast.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:17 PM) & then I tried calling to end internet service at the old house & the computer hung up on me! A week later, I made it back to the old house & found the modem dead! No lights, nothing.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:17 PM) old house has AT&T internet & AT&T modem.
@  KaliniuS : (17 September 2017 - 04:14 PM) It's time for my semi-annual check-in at HDTV Arcade lol
@  KaliniuS : (17 September 2017 - 04:17 PM) I've been helping beta test the Steam version of Killer Instinct lately. Speaking of KI, I'm actually going to a tournament on September 30th here in Raleigh, NC. It's called "The Fall Classic." Wish me luck!
@  ermac666 : (20 September 2017 - 06:00 AM) Speaking of fighting games, marvel vs capcom: infinite is out for ps4/pro, XB1 and PC. It plays great with more modes than SFV at launch. I am still getting used to the gem system.
@  ermac666 : (20 September 2017 - 06:02 AM) The only downside is that future dlc characters are behind a pay wall, and there are no x-men characters as 20th century fox now owns the x-men licence from what I understand.
@  TonyDP : (25 September 2017 - 07:43 PM) Marvel has really marginalized the X-Man, and Fantastic Four as well, pretty much removing them from the larger universe, most likely as part of some long game to reclaim those IPs from Fox, who owns them basically in perpetuity as long as they make a movie every few years.
@  Goldenheart : (25 September 2017 - 09:57 PM) Good luck Kal! Kick some Killer butt!
@  Brandino : (30 September 2017 - 12:03 AM) Destiny 2 is fun .... but man it's so easy to get the good loot
@  ermac666 : (02 October 2017 - 09:02 AM) Nioh is coming to steam on nov 7. It was a PS4 exclusive and one of my fave games this gen.
@  d2_s : (02 October 2017 - 04:10 PM) Somy is releasing an updated PSVR headset with improved processing unit and HDR pass-through. Unfortunately, no HDR pass-through solution for early adopters and the new processing box is no compatible with the original PSVR unit. A dick move if you ask me. I'd use my PSVR alot more if it wasn for this.
@  Brandino : (17 October 2017 - 02:27 AM) Just wanted to post that I'm still alive lol...
@  Goldenheart : (21 October 2017 - 01:36 PM) sorry for the double post earlier. Didn't realize it.

Game will be released on 17 Oct. The beta/demo is up for download on psn store. It's a big download at 43 GB. I haven't played a GT game in a long ass time, and this is the first current gen GT game that shows what the ps4/pro is capable of. PS4 pro at 1080p mode is the best way to experience the game if you care about a solid frame rate and the return 60 fps replays, which looks amazing. I know that replays aren't gameplay releated, but on GT games they always look amazing. Most racing sims have 30 fps replays, so this is a refreshing change and a blast from the past of sorts where the ps2 GT games have 60 fps replays. PS3 GT games never had 60 fps replays as well as the forza games. It's a nice touch. 4K mode only has 30 fps replays though. Same with base ps4. I feel that ps4 pro at 1080p gives the best overall experience. I like the sense of speed when you use a super fast car. You can hear the wind effects and the screen shakes when you go really fast. You have to be online to play it. Just a heads up. Not an issue as my console is always connected. Just my first impressions.

This is supposed to have a VR mode; kind of limited as it will only be one-on-one and it's unclear how many cars or tracks will be supported in VR. That is the only thing that will get me to look at this as the Forza series have filled my racing need ever since the PS3/360 days.

This link has some info on the VR mode. Apparently, the entire game is way too taxing on the ps4/pro hardware to be played in VR, so they had to make compromises, and they don't seem keen on drastically reducing the visuals like other games such as drive club for VR.

I remember reading that a while ago; based on the comments of the developers I get the feeling VR was forced on them rather than being something they wanted to do on their own. I do think they're a little too in love with their rendering engine; I would have preferred a few more cars even at the expense of the visuals being scaled back somewhat. Driveclub VR showed me that in the heat of competition you usually don't have time to notice the visual downgrade too much, and that was a day one game.

Unfortunately, VR support does not appear to be in the demo, which I could not get to work as it was never able to connect to the GT servers, so I'll be waiting a bit for some feedback on whether the VR mode is worthwhile.
