I really think Sony wants me to hate them. They make so many decisions that flip the bird to customers.

I keep thinking back to that Xbox One E3 reveal and how badly Microsoft screwed up then and for their future.  I'd love to see an alternate reality world where Sony felt like they were trying to compete more with Microsoft at this point and over the past few years.  That doesn't mean things would necessarily be better, but i'd like to see what the differences would be.

Tempted on gears 4 but I'm not a big fan of the gears games would you guys still recommend it to me or just save the credit I have on my account and buy Hollow Knight

It's a good game, but it's definitely more Gears of War, so you kind of know what you're getting...

Off topic: Does anyone have recommendations for good routers, preferably not too expensive, that can cover three floors (basement to second floor)/2200 sq ft?

I struggled for YEARS and tried tons of different routers and extenders and finally tried the Netgear Nighthawk router.  It has been amazing in speed and coverage.  My home is very large, but only one story.  I had a lot of dead zones or slowing down in areas and now the coverage reaches every nook and cranny and even extends outside a good distance.  I can't say enough good things about it.

 

Honestly, though, I probably would have gone with a mesh system if they had been around when I got the Nighthawk since that sounds like it would be better, but i'm glad that wasn't an option.  Also, at this point, you can probably get a really good deal on older versions of the Nighthawk.

 

All that being said, I don't know performance differences between a multi-story home and a one story home, but I can tell you that my square footage coverage area needs are larger than what you're referring to.

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but what the heck.

 

I just got a PS4 Pro the other day and own 3 games (Spider-Man, Fifa 18 and Fortnite)

 

Is the PS store the best place to buy cheap PS4 games?

 

Also assuming that joining PS+ is a no-brainer too (does joining costs ever go on sale?)

A little late to chime in here, but don't you need PS+ for Fortnite anyway?  I'm really not sure.  Regardless, it's a pretty good value for the freebies even if you don't plan on playing online or using cloud saves.

So is this really happening, guys?  The Xbox thread that one might assume would bicker about Xbox vs. Playstation is actually instead arguing over iPhone vs. Android?

I worked at KPMG. Free time as an accountant. Where? How? When?

It's really quite simple.  Once you setup a couple of shell companies in the Bahamas and start funneling excess charges and transactions from your clients you'll have quite a nest egg built up and can retire early with plenty of time for gaming.  It's a pity you need a CPA designation to gain client's trust in the first place.  Such a silly barrier to entry to wonderful opportunities!

Im kind of new to this thread. What exactly is being counted down here? Were these the old sales from last week? Thanks

Every Monday, there is a countdown to disappointment.  8PM EST is when Bloomy flashes us all with his stuff and the excitement deflates...

What are the odds that those of us who got The Surge Complete Edition -for free- gets the upcoming ‘The Good, the Bad, the Augmented’ DLC for free too?

We better or Sony's gonna hear from my lawyer!

I haven't yet made the time to play through the copy of Kingdoms of Amalur I have in my backlog, but I loved the demo for it and have heard nothing but great things about it!

 

THQ Nordic is really starting to specialize in scooping up old/dead IPs- let's hope it works out for them!

"Works out for them" is the key.  I hope there's money in their strategy because it's nice to see a company taking a different approach to the industry than just running towards what the current trends are.  Unfortunately, they seem to be sinking a lot of money into things many people got tired of.  I guess as long as they manage things better than the old THQ they'll be OK.

So apparently the Dolby Vision bring tested for Xbox One is not compatible with TCL TVs. Not too happy to hear that. Here’s the list of sets that are:

Hopefully TCLs get an update to support it.

I had no idea there were "versions" of Dolby Vision.  Life is way too complicated.

I guess my CAG days should wind down.  My 2 TB hard drive is full not counting all the games I bought but haven't downloaded yet.  

I dare say I have enough games.

I should probably wait on buying Spiderman too, I guess, since I have no place to put the installation or updates.

 

 

 

 

yes, I know I can delete games, but still, I have a lot of games

This is like the guy sitting at the bar telling the fellow drunks he wonders if he should stop drinking.  We're all stuck in this together.  You know where you belong.  You can't quit.  Don't fight it.

Can't tell if this is a joke or not?

Because clearly there is a map and a mission called Favela in MW2, but I they took it out of MP

You're not seriously saying they took the Favella map out of MW2 multi-player are you?  I don't know the truth on this, but I loved that map.

 

 

EDIT: I just remembered the story on this.  It was temporarily removed because there was apparently some offensive picture that needed to be edited out.

Is it possible that we got this games this month so that the attention is squarely on Shadow of the Tomb Raider since MS has the marketing deal with Square Enix? By announcing those four games, they'll be an afterthought by 9/12 when the deluxe edition unlocks. They may do the same in October with FH4 and Fallout 76 coming out.

You have a good point.  How about it also being possible that Gamepass is a much better vehicle for "free" game delivery for them.  They can give away games and then remove them whenever needed (I know it's not that simple).  Also, MS would probably rather entice people to sign up for Gamepass than entice people for Xbox Live since Live is a service most people need for online gaming anyway or already see it as essential, so the games aren't necessarily the draw.
