I just got a Playstation Classic for my brother for Christmas. He should appreciate the modding capabilities.
Got Monster Hunter World: Iceborne for the Xbox One when it came out Friday September 6th.
Having fun with it?
Personally for me it fixes a few things I wasn't a fan of in the base game so am really happy with it.
One of which is I like most the new monsters. Only one I'm 'meh' about is Beotodus, who is really just the Great Jaggi of the expansion so didn't really expect much.
Post-game is also a feature from MH4 as well, which I really appreciate.
Bought Driver for the PS1. Granted I owned it as a kid but still... A decently good game in my book.
Forgot what it was called but, you gotta look up the code for highly aggressive cops. We used to take turns and you were lucky to last 2 minutes. Very fun though.
Picked up the Castlevania Requiem compilation on PS4. It was on sale. To be able to play Symphony of the Night again feels good, and the PC Engine version of Rondo of Blood is surprisingly good.
I also picked up the newest Destiny 2 Expansion. Looking forward to that.
i think the last game i bought was moss for the index on my PC. this year hasnt really been a game buying year for me.
not due to a lack of games...oh GOD so many games. its just i have decided to start taking a lump out of my backlog before buying new games.....and most of the games on my TODO list are huge. i have 4 total war games alone. civ 5 is also sitting there. i could go on and on....no shortage of games so no more game buying for a while.
I did get a vega 64 and a Fractal Design Meshify S2 case to house it in. my 11 (maybe 12) year old PC case couldnt house it (a V64 nitro+).
I usually wouldnt bother upgrading from an RX 580 to something like a vega 64 or GTX 1080....i would like a bigger jump. but the 4GB 580 just wasnt cutting it for VR on the index. I was hunting around for something around the gtx1080 mark for around 350 quid to tide me over but rare as frickin hens teeth (stores were looking for 450 euros for a used 1080). then a store here was selling a new V64 nitro+ for 320 euros (clearing out stock for navi i suppose).
so that does the job for VR now. i was planning to do a full PC upgrade in 2020 but with that unexpected GPU upgrade i may now hold off until 2021-22..i will see how it goes.
its been a very hardware focused year gaming wise. new tv as my old one (10 years old) blew. a new GPU, case, power supply (my old one was 10 years old....its being repurposed for an old build i am passing on)and index VR headset. outside of some VR games though i havent bought many games.
I recently bought a Dell/Alienware 34inch ultrawide 160hz gsync ips monitor. I like the high refresh rate but I find the picture way too soft looking and there isn't even a setting in the monitor settings to adjust sharpness.
I'm likely going to send it back to amazon and just go back to my older ultrawide.
Unbelievable to get a monitor with no sharpness adjustment... every LCD/LED monitor i've bought over the last 18 years has had it. Its on my list to double check next time I buy a monitor... just insane to not include this simple setting in a 1000+ dollar monitor. Their 1080p ultrawide lacks the setting, yet their 1440p model has it... umm why? If anything you want to add some sharpness to the lower definition one or at least give people the option to calibrate the monitor to fit their needs.
And to add to the cheapness of this whole monitor, mine even has a stuck red pixel on the screen. Yep, a 1000+ dollar monitor came with a defect, that's just great.
I'll toss my money into something more useful, maybe get i'll get a 2080 gtx if I see one on sale in the next few months.
