    @quantris said: I haven't held an Xbox Elite but I'd guess it has something similar, which would address my main complaint about the Xbox One controller -- the body of the controller just feels cheap...

  • fnrslvr posted a message in the forum topic Was anyone else disappointed by Nintendo's Direct?. on the Nintendo board

    I put over 500 hours into Nintendo last year. They almost completely dominated my year insofar as gaming was concerned. If anything, I'm maybe a little thankful that they're not dropping many more bi...

    It's been the Elite and the Switch Pro for me. Voted Elite, but Nintendo made handles that feel more-or-less perfect to grip, so maybe I should've went with the Switch Pro. Oh well.DS4 feels better th...

  • fnrslvr posted a message in the forum topic Recommendations for a good monitor. on the General Discussion board

    I'd go with one of the 1440p or 1080p gsync high refresh rate low lag monitors and leave it at that. I'm not familiar with every monitor on the market, but ASUS's PG series seems to have a lot to reco...

    Howard should know that nobody's going to shut up until we get confirmation that we're going to Summerset to take the fight to the Thalmor.(Okay, so that's probably Not How Elder Scrolls Games Work, b...

    They should add Banjo. My more out-there pick would be Max Caulfield.

  • fnrslvr posted a message in the forum topic Should I buy a 4K TV before or after an Xbox One X/PS4 Pro?. on the General Discussion board

    Might pay to hold out on the TV until variable refresh rate (basically the HDMI standard's version of adaptive sync, i.e. freesync/gsync) starts showing up in TVs. Might not be until next year for the...

  • fnrslvr posted a message on the post E3 2018: Battles Get Bloody in Dead or Alive 6.

    Curious about the mechanics. (Which is something I didn't expect to be saying about a new DOA.)Might just be trailer effects, but they seem to be showing off some sort of powerful bursty unreactable s...

  • fnrslvr posted a message in the forum topic Are you ready to give Kratos a chance?. on the Kratos board

    Seems like a shitty character who shouldn't be celebrated. Whilst it's good to hear they managed to revamp enough of the God of War formula to make a very well-received game in 2018, I'm apprehensive ...

    PC. I've also probably put ~500hrs into Switch (mainly BotW, but also Odyssey and MK8D) in the past year, and I'm in front of an Xbox One with no gaming PC in sight often enough that I get to apprecia...

    @oursin_360: Samsung are notable for not going down the OLED path, choosing instead to push their quantum dot tech. (Rebranded, cringily enough, as QLED.) It doesn't seem to be going amazingly for the...

    Aside from the above, combine lynel bows with bomb arrows and ancient arrows to carpet bomb the shit out of any large enemy settlements. You might also find a phrenic bow useful, which you can consult...

  • fnrslvr posted a message in the forum topic Is Sony still the best?. on the General Discussion board

    As noted above, they seem to have the strongest sub-OLED entrants in the TV market in the x900e and its ilk, which were my frontrunners before I realized that some of LG's models with their market-lea...

  • fnrslvr posted a message in the forum topic Now that some time has passed, is Xbox One X and/or PS4 Pro worth it?. on the General Discussion board

    I bought an X pretty soon after I bought my parents' LG B7 OLED. Figured I should get a 4K Blu-ray player, and getting a dedicated player when an S can play 4K Blu-rays for roughly the same price seem...
