In Topic: CAGcast #465: 4K-ish

I had to pause ny jog to laugh when Cheapy claimed the Xbone S compared favorably on price with the PS4 Pro and Shipwreck said the Scorpio is is much more powerful than it. That is some crazy spin based on the actual facts.
A 1 TB Xbone S is $350, and 1.4 teraflops.
The 1 TB PS4 Pro will be $400, but is 4.2 teraflops.
The Scorpio is supposed to be 6 teraflops, which isn't nearly as big a jump in power as the jump from the Xbone S to the PS4 Pro. But somehow Cheapy thinks MS could charge a $100 or even $200 premium.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting some phrasing here, but the Scorpio being 43% more powerful than the Pro is enough for me to say at a base level that it is much more powerful.

The Logitech Harmony Home Hub Extender can control smart plugs like this one, so you can turn on/off the NES as well.

Something about essentially pulling the cord to turn off and on systems doesn't sit well with me.

Do you kill 500+ people primarily by shooting from a third person perspective in any Zelda game?

That's more people than my Nathan Drake killed in my 18 hour playthru of Uncharted 4.

I'm not really understanding what point you are trying to make here? Tomb Raider is almost twice as long?

At heart they're both third person shooters and the critics have always preferred Uncharted, even Uncharted 3 which was the weakest in the series IMO due to an overload of annoying enemies. Fixing that issue and incorporating some of the mechanics from TLOU (another TPS that's better than Tomb Raider) is what made Uncharted 4 such a fun game to play.

Might as well throw Zelda into the comparison then because Tomb Raider shares as many game structure mechanics with Zelda as it does with Uncharted.

Shipwreck's enthusiasm for his keyboard and tablet stand make me think he'd really enjoy a Surface.

I wouldn't not enjoy a Surface, but I'm pretty tied into Apple's ecosystem so that's where all my content is.
