  1. New Jumanji actually ....good??? is that possible?

    Never saw it. Looked pretty bad. But since it was a different board game, wouldn't it be like a spinoff where this is a direct sequel?
  2. 2018 Films to Anticipate and Predictions

    I still see it as a problem. Big movies like that can have long tails. One may well end up clipping the tail of the other.
  3. 2018 Films to Anticipate and Predictions

    Wait, Disney is putting a Star Wars movie and an Avengers movie in the same month??? Why would they compete with their own ticket sales that way?
  4. New Jumanji actually ....good??? is that possible?

    Sure it is. Not in any important way, but the opening scene in this one pulls directly from the closing scene in the first one to tie them together. I saw it with my kids. It was a fun movie.
  5. So....Street Figher 5 comes out today

    Assuming we already have S1 and S2 purchased.
  6. So....Street Figher 5 comes out today

    I fully intended on getting this updated when I got home last night. Just didn't have time. How is it?
  7. So....Street Figher 5 comes out today

    I think that's because the Arcade Mode adds a world map. And, y'know, the world... I mean... it's a big place...
  8. Finished The Next Generation. Onto Deep Space 9

    I getcha. That makes sense. Very considerate.
  9. I only ever got to play this game in arcades. My first home game in the vs series was MvC2 on Dreamcast, which I played to death.
  10. Microsoft discontinues Xbox One Kinect Adaptor

    This actually really pissed me off. When I picked up the X, I always intended to get one. Everywhere online (in Canada) was sold out. Now I find out they will never be restocked. Trying to purchase one on eBay, they keep going for over $200. Ridiculous. I really miss the Xbox seeing me and signing me in automatically. I miss when my kids are playing a game and I walk into the room and the Xbox says "Hi, Duncan" and I say, "Hi, Xbox" back... I miss turning the Xbox off with a voice command when I'm nowhere near a controller. I want an adapter, dammit.
  11. Christmas NiGHTS - Nostalgic Pixel

    Truth. Plus, it keeps those NiGHTS skills fresh... for the day when that becomes a necessary thing... and stuff... There is one track in Christmas NiGHTS that you can keep an infinite combo going if you play it right. I notice in the video, boost is almost never being used. I kept watching the footage thinking, "Why isn't he holding boost almost constantly??" I was happy to watch the video though.
  12. Christmas NiGHTS - Nostalgic Pixel

    I go back and play Christmas NiGHTS every year. No joke.
  13. For Christmas, I wanted to get my 19-yo son some headphones he can use for listening to music from his iPod, but also for playing games on his laptop with friends. (Right now he is propping up an old Band Hero Mic to talk to his friends while playing, which is less than ideal). There is currently a good deal on Sony Over-Ear Sound Isolating Wireless Headphones with Mic (MDRXB650BT/B) These are not marketed as a PC gaming headset, but I'm assuming they should work none-the-less. I never use headsets, so I don't know if there's any oddities I'm missing. Is there anything wrong with this plan? Thx gang.
  14. Fair enough. My point was really that barring obvious defects in the signal like you describe, if the signal is getting through, then a better cable won't improve the image quality. It's not like he's going to get a lower resolution version or muted/distorted colours, or haloing or anything from using the older cable. If the cable he uses is successfully passing the signal to the TV, then a higher end cable will provide no further visual improvements over that cable.
  15. So....Street Figher 5 comes out today

    It will include all Season 1 and Season 2 DLC character. Season 3 characters will cost extra.
  16. Dreams information and hands-on

    Without the knowledge that these are the Little Big Planet guys that trailer wouldn't get me excited at all. As it is, I'm curious, but not champing at the bit to get my hands on it.
  17. Xbox One Xbox 1 Backwards Compatibility Thread

    For those who don't want to click, the 2 games are: Sonic Adventure 2 (Xbox 360 - digital only) Earth Defence Force 2017 (Xbox 360)
  18. Knack is finally coming to PlayStation Plus!

    This seems to imply that Sony's platform is inferior to others in terms of digital rights. I'm curious what you're getting at, specifically.
  19. Knack is finally coming to PlayStation Plus!

    I see what you did there.
  20. Knack is finally coming to PlayStation Plus!

    I would generally agree with the sentiment that PS+ had a far more routinely compelling software offering prior to the launch of PS4. However, I also feel like the discounts on purchases I take advantage of being a PS+ subscriber EASILY pay for the subscription fee several times over, and I feel like that benefit has actually improved since the PS4 launched. So, I continue to see the service as well worth it.
  21. Knack is finally coming to PlayStation Plus!

    I can't wait to find out where he's going with this...
  22. Knack is finally coming to PlayStation Plus!

    Wow, that's pretty awesome. WTF N. America?
  23. Konami is WEIRD

    Maybe they thought, "Hey, let's release games on platforms with large install bases where there is nothing else being released. The fact that we're the only new offering being presented to millions of gamers that haven't been able to upgrade to a new system and are desperate for fresh content might mean we get way more attention and sales for these old back-catalogue games than we otherwise would in a crowded marketplace."
  24. Is it worth getting X if I don’t utilize 4K?

    Here's what I said about the cable working in the other thread: Most likely, yes. The good news is it either works or it doesn't. There's no partial signal producing a lower quality image or anything like that with HDMI. You'll either get a picture or you won't. Switching cables won't give you a better picture, if you're already getting a picture. Since you don't have a 4K HDR TV, I can't imagine the existing cable won't work, but keep the new cable marked for reference when you do upgrade. Having said that, the real answer is: try it and see. If you're getting picture, you're good. ---------------------------- Now that I've got more information in this thread, I will say that the longer the cable, the less likely it's going to work when you do switch to sending a 4K HDR signal.
