Re: Is it Redundant to own both XBX ans PS5?

That said, I'm still feisty enough at 58 to engage and push back in here when I see fit. That happens a LOT less often than 15 or 20 years ago, but some sh*t still raises my hackles. :) You sad old f$ck :wink: But then again we are all turning into sad old f$cks, though I still have 4 fewer years o...

Re: OT: New Music?

The concerts I have been to the last couple of years have not had any obnoxious audiences. Admittedly it is a completely different crowd. A few selfies before the performance, but once the music starts everyone is respectful. The c9ncerts we have been to are exclusively classical and opera. Contempl...

Re: 9-9-99, 20 years on - Dreamcast 20th

Hadn't heard of the DCHDMI mod. Will have to think about it. I do have a VGA cable to play on an old 4:3 VGA monitor, but not all games are compatible. Those that are look great. What I really miss is a tube TV. I desperately want to play my light gun games. Still have ReDream on my PC to emulate ga...

Re: Steam Deck

Thanks for the write up F308GTB. So it's like a Switch I guess from what you're describing. But more bulky. Would it be cheaper to get a gaming PC? And when it comes to PC Gaming, I've had this question - For consoles, you get a console released and that's pretty much what developers will be using ...

Steam Deck

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

I've never played L.A. Noire, but it amazes me how that game's retail price has stayed at $40 even though it was released in 2017. It's on sale this week for $20. La Noire is $24.99 on the Switch (on sale) which is crazy. Game should be like $9.99 Should be $1.99 at this point. Happy to be a PC gam...

I'll have to give that one a go at some point. I've had it since release but never dabbled in it much. I just barely got around to really giving ACC a go for a league season, and that's fun, but man....so different compared to iRacing (specifically the braking model and how the ABS is more 'modern'...

As a racing fan I would have been gutted if that late yellow/red took the victory from Ericsson.

No thanks
There is a version for X-Plane 11 - $50. I wonder what drives these prices. Licensing? Development time? Greed?
