    @analgrin: Yeah, I know, but current VR headsets also have shitty resolution (I have an HTC Vive). Supersampling helps, but definitely cranks up the power requirements. Most games I can run just fine ...

    @jako998: 3 years should be doable as long as you are willing to turn down some settings eventually.Gaming laptops are actually pretty viable nowadays, if you have the cash to shell out.

  • vegard1985 posted a message on the post Nintendo Report Card 2017: Switch, SNES Classic, And 3DS.

    @skektek: I have several high-end gaming PC's (1080 desktop and a 1070 laptop) as well as a lot of other expensive high-end components ($1000+ monitor for example), but I also have a Switch (and a New...

    @ECH71: If you're not getting a new Nvidia card for a few months, you might want to consider waiting for Volta, since it's slated for an early 2018 release. Waiting for Volta myself, so I can upgrade ...

    @jako998: I have a (secondary) gaming laptop with a GTX 1070 too, but you know you could have built a GTX 1080 desktop for cheaper than what that laptop probably cost you. I paid over $2500 for mine (...

    @sellingthings: Yeah you might be right. Guess we'll see next year. Hoping for a decent boost at least from 1080 -> 1180 or whatever it'll be called. Electricity is covered by my landlord, so that'...

    @cornbredx: Agreed. It's the only AC game I've ever really played. Tried a few of the others but could not get into them. But I love pirate themed games, so it was almost a given that I would enjoy AC...

    @sellingthings: Yeah that's a good idea. Now if they did that, and it didn't introduce any lag whatsoever, I'd definitely get an extra card. I'm afraid you may be right though about the next series on...

  • vegard1985 posted a message on the post Best PC Hardware Holiday Gift Guide 2017.

    I just wish Nvidia would release a new GTX series soon. My 1080 is struggling to cope with GPU intensive VR games. 1080Ti is definitely not worth upgrading to from a 1080, so I'm stuck waiting for th...

    @sellingthings: Well you certainly come prepared, I'll give you that. I think the longest power outage I've experienced recently was about half an hour, maybe upwards of an hour - in the past 5 or eve...

    @sellingthings: Sounds weird. I've never heard anyone from FL complain about electronics failing before, and I was in contact with quite a few down there. Is it just confined to your particular area t...

    @sellingthings: Hmm, well, I know the humidity is pretty bad in FL. I'm from Norway, but I actually kinda lived in Florida a decade ago (was there for around 7 months total). I guess if you live in a ...

    Pleasantly surprised by this article. I have a degree in IT and work as a system analyst, and can vouch for the validity of the info presented here, at least what I skimmed over. That said, it is not ...

    @ccgod: I didn't just throw 300 dollars at a game arbitrarily. I probably know more about the game than the average SC player, because at one point I really believed in the project. At this point thou...

  • vegard1985 posted a message on the post Star Citizen Will Let You Buy Land For Up To $100 Per Parcel.

    Starting to lose faith in this game. 3.0 was supposed to be out for everyone about a year ago (if I remember correctly). A years delay... For a single patch. That doesn't exactly bode well for the re...

    @djezhel619: Yeah I primarily play on PC, and bought the Switch right after its release. I also have an Xbox One X, but always preferred PC. Nintendo has always had great exclusives though, and I've a...

  • vegard1985 posted a message on the post LA Noire Switch Review.

    Might have bought this, even though I have it on PC... If they didn't demand full price for this ancient game. Seems to be a trend, where Nintendo expects people to pay 60 dollars / region equivalent ...

    Bought this on Steam, and had fun for about 10 hours before I grew bored. I adore the Banjo Kazooie games - at least Kazooie and Tooie; haven't tried Nuts'n'Bolts yet, but have the Rare Replay pack so...

    Bought one of these last week, as a supplement to my 2 high end gaming PC's (desktop and laptop), as well as the Switch, New 3DS etc. Honestly, the main reason I bought it was for the Rare Replay bund...
