  • ShakesMcQueen posted a message on the post Halo Infinite - Eddie Makuch's Most Anticipated Game Of 2020.

    Playing Reach on PC basically affirmed for me that Halo doesn't need to be a "relic" of a previous era of gaming. The gameplay translates suprisingly well to a mouse and keyboard, and more importantly...

    @cejay0813 said:@shakesmcqueen: I partially agree. I think it would be a blunder ONLY if the console doesn't live up to powerhouse expectations. If games can consistently run at 4k/60fps or even vari...

  • ShakesMcQueen posted a message on the post Xbox Series X Price: What We Know About The Cost.

    @Thanatos2k: Because they are the only two choices. Nintendo is still offering a very different experience to Sony and Microsoft, and a comparable PC gaming rig would still cost far more money.You mi...

  • ShakesMcQueen posted a message on the post Xbox Series X Price: What We Know About The Cost.

    @imajinn: Because the PS4 was $100 cheaper, and more powerful to boot. If they are BOTH $500, that danger doesn't exist.

    @Terminator95: Microsoft stole the idea of a button that does a thing! Thieves!

  • ShakesMcQueen posted a message on the post Xbox Series X Specs: Twice As Powerful As Xbox One X.

    @cejay0813: There's no chance they'll sell it for that much, unless they know Sony is selling the PS5 for the same price.I get the impression Spencer would rather eat glass, than be in a position wher...

  • ShakesMcQueen posted a message on the post Yes, You Can Lay The Xbox Series X Flat.

    @nikolistary: 2 inches tall?! lol. The XBSX looks to be about as "thick" as the average A/V receiver, which means it should fit just fine in most TV cabinets/stands, if laid on it's side.

  • ShakesMcQueen posted a message on the post Xbox Series X Price: What We Know About The Cost.

    @Thanatos2k: That all depends on what the PS5's price point is. If they are both $599 USD, you're not dead in the water at all.More likely, I expect both to be $500. That's what the One X cost, and ...
