Re: Blu Ray Fail

It's sad that this is the reality because those of us who want the best video quality just have to buy into it and continue to support this cycle.

Re: Blu Ray Fail

Why are you putting anything other than game discs in your PS3? You're just asking for the drive to fail. Yes and no. Early PS3 consoles had faulty drives, but as far as I can tell the PS3 Slim and Super Slim models are very reliable. I've had a Super Slim since 2012 that has been heavily used for ...

Re: VGC Tries Virtual Reality

The only kind of VR headset that interests me is the cheap one that pairs with your smartphone. Has anyone tried out one of these?

Re: Blu Ray Fail

Good morning Critic, I have to agree with you that this is kind of BS. I imagine this is an effort on the part of the publishers to constantly update the copy protection on their discs to stay ahead of pirates. That does nothing to prevent illegal downloads once a rip is inevitably circulated howeve...

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

Sometimes the discussion on this site leaves you with an impression that modern, online, multiplayer gaming is somehow a lesser experience than traditional offline gaming. In truth it's the best thing about videogames these days. If you could game with your brother in the same room, or online, whic...

Re: Cooking?

This is a great thread. I consider myself a good cook but I have a few dishes that I specialize in. Whenever my girlfriend is craving one of them, I cook. For pretty much everything else, she cooks while I play the role of sous chef. She's from the Philippines so we have a lot of Asian food at home....

Re: Standard Def 4:3 TVs

I want to buy a bigger house so that I can have 2 video game rooms, a modern one, and a classic one, both with surround sound, and the classic one with a CRT. Also, I'm getting pretty jealous of you homeowners on this site. Our tiny downtown apartment only has room for one TV, and obviously just on...

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

Interesting perspectives in this thread. I'm 43, married with 2 kids. I still game, but only a few hours per week. I know some people mentioned that they feel they are wasting their time, but I don't see it any different than watching tv. Sometime you just want to veg out on the couch watching tv o...

Re: Standard Def 4:3 TVs

Yeah, thought I'd bring this up again Have you considered switching to RGB monitors? They are a little more expensive but are the ultimate in image quality if you ask me. I had a nice one that I had to leave behind in a move. In hindsight I wish I had offered it to someone on this forum for the pri...

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

For me, videogames are a way for me to stay connected with my friends. We all have a Facebook chat group that's been going for about 6 years (since we graduated college), which is how we organize sessions of Civilization VI, Overwatch, etc. When we play games together, we inevitably catch up and cha...
