  1. Hmmm I'm about $30 to get a couple new games I've had on my wishlist for awhile. Might just bite, I get paid next Wednesday. Not that $30 will make or break anything I just have been trying to save money lately.
  2. This is quite possibly the only thing I've heard from Ulver until now and its vastly different than either of these
  3. Concept art was so much better than final release. Probably the biggest turn off for me. Gameplay wasn't that terrible to me, it just wasn't that good.
  4. I have no idea whats up with the freesync. Dunno if its on my end or the monitors end. I'll give it a few more shots and if it doesn't work itself out I'll either swap it out or wait for the Samsung. Reviews on newegg are promising though. Honestly if you look past all of the small stuff, its a stellar panel (which should be the most important part of the monitor). But yeah, its got a 3 year warranty on it (don't know exactly what that entails) which is better than anything I've ever gotten with a monitor.
  5. Just unboxed it Thoughts so far + Panel seems to be pretty good. No backlight bleeding that I've noticed yet. No dead pixels. - Instructions are bare minimum (not that its that hard to set up), but I didn't notice any screws in the bag so I ended up taking the bottom end of the stand apart. - Bezel is big and very noticeable. - Build quality is so/so. The connection between the monitor and the post is very wobbly, the actual post is rock solid. Using the buttons to scroll the menu rocks the monitor. I wonder if I can tighten it down - The bezel seal isn't great, I can see metal all at the bottom of the bezel when looking at it from above. - Huge (not that big, but annoying) blue light in the front of the monitor (as far as I can tell it can't be disabled), just have to stick some electrical tape over it. - I have no idea how to set up freesync. Immediately when plugged into my computer it says refresh rate and resolution aren't achievable (though it stays at 1440p). When running around in overwatch it keeps me at 70fps constantly. There is no actual settings in the menu on the panel to show me if freesync is enabled or not, which my MG279Q does. - Menu buttons go in opposite direction of indication < takes me right and > takes me left, menu is also bare minimum.
  6. I didn't know Samsung was going to have a 27' 1440p monitor. It's only a $100 difference too. Makes me almost want to wait as well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Won't let me checkout. Says my shopping cart is empty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. necrobump This monitor is on sale from Newegg https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0JC-00A3-00001&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Monitors+-+LCD+Flat+Panel-_-0JC-00A3-00001&gclid=Cj0KEQjwmv7JBRDXkMWW4_Tf8ZoBEiQA11B2fhUIAKiDbB21Oul9JLVI4WWP0WiZ4XE4Bb-KCaThSoIaAn2W8P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds I picked it up. Should be here in a few days.
  9. Buy: Metro Exodus Anthem Ori Destiny 2 Shadow of the Colossus Ashen Shadow of Mordor Kingdom Come Deliverance Wait for Sale: Cuphead Crackdown 3 Spiderman Days Gone Pass: Everything else, at least until I see more.
  10. And 1 Streetball Simpsons Hit & Run Area 51 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (seriously) Looking forward to playing these again.
  11. Probably my most hyped game shown so far.
  12. Gimme a battle network collection on the 3DS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. 8.5/10 personally. Maybe a low 9 The first few hours of the game are great. Wandering around, doing shrines, finding newer/better weapons. I think it was around 8 hours that I started getting bored. Killing camps of enemies nets little to no reward, they honestly become more of a nuisance as you waste your durability fighting pretty much anything in the overworld. Exploration was extremely fun, while I had something to look for. Once I had enough hearts for the Master Sword and had enough stamina I didn't really get the urge to explore as much as I previously did. I did enjoy how you kind of have these overworld mini bosses though. They were really fun to run into. Armor was a huge plus, I definitely liked the abilities certain sets of armor gave and found almost all of them useful at some point. Weapons I'm torn on. I pretty much avoided any battle in the overworld once I had a decent set of weapons because of durability. Had no idea when I was going to stumble upon another good weapon and that kind of irked me. I actually had a lot of fun with the combat and wished I would have slayed more. Given that I went back to the game I probably would just battle more, I always ended up finding good weapons, but just that loom over my head that I might not for awhile kept me from battling. I wish there was a repair ability, better the weapon the more costly it would be. Shrines are great, some of the puzzles are pretty unique, others are extremely easy, but its a nice addition to the game. Dungeons are short, but I kind of liked it that way. The boss battles were exhilarating, I just wish there was more of them. 4 dungeons is just way to small for any Zelda game. The final battle is disappointing to be honest. Shamefully easy, especially when you have beaten the 4 dungeons. I get more of a rush with Lynels than I did in this battle. Not really a huge negative, but from the trailers I was guessing that this Zelda would be a more personal one, that you would get to spend more time with Zelda or the 4 guardians. Instead its just finding photographs and all of it is completely overlookable. However Zelda stories always follow the same formula with slight tweaks, so I wasn't expecting a lot, which is why it really isn't a huge negative.
