Land of the Lustrous and Patlabor Complete are priced well, but I'm having a hard time on the latter because it'll be cheaper come Black Friday and the former because without the latter I have to pay shipping.

That's literally what I picked up last night lol. That's it.

Well hot damn, this is a first: Xbox officially has a mainline Final Fantasy title on a current platform that isn't available on Playstation  :shock:

Xbox has more FF and MGS titles than PS does thanks to BC.

The samsung one is a 2018 model. The sharp one is a 2016 model. The samsung tv has 2 hdmi ports.

The sharp tv has 3 2.2hdmi ports. The sharp tv has more ports for various things like digital optical out and 1 2.0 usb port. The samsung tv lacks those ports on the back the sharp tv has. Sharp tv has 60hz refresh rate while samsun has 120 motion rate. Both tv's have HDR but samsung has Purcolor as well.


If you don't mind having a tv with 2 hdmi ports and no component, composite usb, digital optical, or ethernet port then go with the samsung one. Otherwise go with the sharp one.


*edit* the samsung tv does have 1 usb port and ethernet port. I had to click on something else to see actual specs that doesn't match up with best buy's listing just by scrolling down. So basically the samsung tv only lacks component and composite inputs. Everything else is pretty much the same.


Get the samsung tv mate.

Anyone played No Man’s Sky? I see it’s on sale at Best Buy this week. Not going to buy it physically since I game share with my fiancé, but if it happened to drop to $30 digitally this week I might consider it (make it happen, Bloomy!). Just curious if anyone has experience with it and could recommend and/or dissuade a purchase. Thanks, all!

No man sky is 50% harvesting 40% exploring and 10% killing. Only reason you kill anything is for a specific mineral organic life gives and sentinels also give a specific mineral only they have once you've killed them. The game builds you up to explore different types of systems by upgrading your ships engine drive and you only need to upgrade it 3 times as the last drive (emerald drive) allows access red blue and green systems. Buying upgrades for your space suit or ship stack if you put them near each other like jet pack booster upgrade stacks 3 times and you have to put it next to the jet pack icon in your inventory for optimal performance. You can upgrade your inventory slot once every time you go to a new space station. There's a max of 40 slots for basic inventory space or you can upgrade your larger slots that hold 500 minerals per slot compared to the 150 in basic inventory. The larger slots also max out of 40 slots so you have 40 slots that can hold 500 minerals each. You can literally hold more than a star ship. Star ships have a rarity from D C B A S. S class ships are the best in a sense compared to exotic ships. Exotic ships are unique looking and have the best hyper drive stock or upgraded. You can only have 1 capital ship in the game but can create a frigate of smaller ships to follow you and there's different kinds of frigate ships like explorer, medical, military or something that's good at fighting and mining frigates. You can send them out to go mine a system and choose which frigates you wanna send out. Frigates also have rarity all the way up to S rank. If they hadn't fixed the dupe glitch that made the game less grindy I'd say get it but now that there's noway to dupe stacks of items Idk if you'd enjoy mining and slowly building up resources to make something and then go back and get some more. Duping cut down the time drastically to get anywhere in the game. It was super fun building and buying anything in the game at anytime. Now the game is just kinda eh without the dupe glitch.

I've been having a blast in fallout 76. Both playing it solo and coop. Just looting stuff and surviving is what I've always enjoyed in F4 cause the quests weren't that memorable but the locales were and they also are in 76. My coop buddy an I set up a makeshift base today before the server shutdown and overall it's very fun if you like looting and crafting.

Went to GameStop to pick up red dead and some dude was guarding the door saying the manager said to not let anyone in anymore even if you pre ordered the game. Had to wait for the line to clear and talked to the manager and they let us in. This was my first time being at a 9pm release lol why isn’t it midnight no more

Cause no one wants to close the store 9pm then come back 2.5hrs later to open it back up again for preorders. Also has something to do to the fact that release dates aren't really set in stone anymore. Sometimes preordering a game gives you access to the game 3 days earlier than everyone else.

The x has a function in options to test out the tv, doesn’t it?

I noticed the checking through options wasn’t fully correct then I changed the hdmi input and everything checked out

You talking about the checklist to see if the tv is fully compatible with the X like hdr10? It does if you mean that. It has a huge list of things it requires to get everything out of the X.

Hey I just saw a video of updates for halo MCC coming soon that's going to overhaul the entire game and fix all the bugs with it. One of the cool things I saw is that you can install select games so if you don't want to play halo 4 you can just not install it. This goes for both multi-player and single player options to download it so this frees up a massive amount of space and gives players lots of options on what they want to install and play. It's also getting Xbox one x enhanced l support too.

Did anyone else's Shining Resonance Refrain Draconic Launch Edition arrive with the plastic slip cover weirdly bent? It looks like the plastic is too big for the metal case, so it got bent during shrink wrapping. And the shrink wrap isn't even tight.

I picked mine up at the store and no the slip cover isn't supposed to be like that. It's meant to have a snug fit but not too tight or too loose around the metal slip case.

People with an X, what TV do you use? I hear good things, and my friend just got one and likes it, about TCL. Is that the best quality for price when it comes to 4k and HDR? Was thinking about getting one this weekend, don't know if I can wait 5 months for black friday to get it cheaper.

I got a LG ju6300 TV at last years black Friday. It's a entry level 4k tv but it has hdr10 with it along with other apps and web os 3.5. I personally like it, it isn't super thin or have a really small embezzle like higher end 4k tvs but it gets the job done and at $300 for what I paid for and is occasionally on sale for $300, it's a good decent TV. It also has tru motion for 120hz.
