I haven't found a reason to justify the purchase of a VR system. I am definitely into the technology, but the entry price point is steep without much of a catalogue, or any particular game that is "must have."

This looks interesting as I do enjoy my action/adventure games but not enough to sway a purchase of a VR system.

Thought the first two shows were solid. The unscripted promos alone are very noticeable and very welcomed in my opinion. They don't have that robotic Seth Rollins delivery.

My issue with AEW is that it does lack star power. And I'm not talking about existing stars, just talents that I could foresee being big deals in the near future.

What I'm hoping for is that AEW somehow cuts a deal with NJPW for a Bullet Club invasion angle down the road.

As for WWE, Hell in the Cell was awful, really awful. RAW was absolutely terrible. And even as a boxing and passive UFC fan, I didn't care for the Cain Velasquez angle, and the Tyson Fury angle (Though I like him) did not give that same intensity and big appeal that Tyson had.

My stock is in AEW right now. In other news, if NXT can start getting some more angles and stories going, I think it'll be the best WWE product - Velveteen is a megastar in the making.

The price tag for the game is way too much. I can't believe the framerate is that bad. I hate shit framerates. It's jarring.

Bummer it's only for Android OS version 10+.

No it's not. Straight from the article:

"Remote Play will now let you stream games from your console to any Android device running version 5.0 or above. This has actually been a feature on certain Android phones since 2014, but only ones made by Sony — now there’ll just be a Remote Play app in the Play store for anyone to download. Sony added iOS compatibility earlier this year, so the expansion of Android support always seemed likely."

I think this is a great idea. I like the idea of playing games in bed or on my couch while I have a show in the background or whatever. I play my Switch undocked a lot.

I'm not super excited about the game. Maybe because DBZ's story has been beaten to death with a stick in how many games are made about it. I would have liked to have seen an original story.

Changing characters is not a huge deal to me, but it may break the immersion when I change characters.

It's a tough question. The days of a dedicated handheld device are likely gone. Tablets, phones,+sized phones, are a dime a dozen (though the gaming on them sucks.) Nintendo still has the same two problems it has always had, online gaming being with the times, and third party titles. The third party problem is more of a "lack of power" problem. When the other two consoles have a lot of horsepower, and Nintendo's doesn't, then gamers and developers will gravitate to the best experience. Other than that, the online is still trash.

I really think Nintendo needs to develop a high powered console so we can get some even better graphical fidelity. The irony is Nintendo themselves always seem to get a lot of out of nothing in their consoles. At the same time, they should have a hybrid because in the gaming world, they control that market. I think they'll go hybrid again, hopefully they figure out a way to get a lot of power out of the console. Perhaps have a dock that actually has increased specs in it...

Not enough force use in the demo. I really enjoyed Force Unleashed. This seems to play somewhat similar.

After I played Metroid Prime 3 on Wii, I had a real hard time with the dual analog. It felt clunky. In a time long ago I was really into Half-Life 2 and Counterstrike source with the M/Kb and I hated the dual analog - but I loved Halo so I got used to it.

But I do hope Metroid Prime 4 gives the option of the IR with gyro. It's the way to play on consoles if you ask me.

Halo Infinite in 2020... unfortunate. Regardless if the article is true, seems about right.

The problem with game streaming hasn't changed since online was a thing. What is the bandwith and overall speed I need to have a smooth experience? At this point in time, it won't be as smooth consistently as actual hardware. Forget that most people likely share an internet connection in their house.

I do like going across various devices, though. Neat idea and implementation.
