Happy Birthday @Aya-Kun , we hope it's an awesome day amid the Pandemic and quarantining!  Enjoy your digital cake.

Also, if you discord... join our discord. You can also use discord to login to our site.  There's a topic for setting that up.

This is the Binge watching show topic.  We are all binging certain shows during the Corona-pocalype....  What are you binging?  What do you like and not like?

Post it up!

Alright... I changed a few things:

1.)  Created a new Battle Royale category with a Call of Duty board.
2.)  Combined FortNite and PUBG boards into the new Battle Royale Category and removed the older 2 separate categories for those boards.
3.)  Created a Cloud Gaming board for all Cloud Gaming and Gaming as a Service topics.

Feel free to post other suggestions for more Battle Royale games you would like to see in the Battle Royale Category.  If you have other suggestions … please post them up!

Enjoy the updates and Game On!

This is pretty cool... it's also cool have they are gathering the information and applying is to the Minecraft "mods."

Someone's built the entire Earth in Minecraft - to scale -

@AngelBob - I figure you woukd appreciate this one.

They have some work to address other issues such as making the right textures apply to the right Earth features... such As snow on mountain tops and ice (instead of snow) for glaciers.

Lol check this article out. It's pretty funny on the measures GameStop is doing to stay in business. 

The obvious problem is... touching the credit card terminal and anything else with the plastic bag is going to spread something around unless they disinfect everything everyone. 

I feel for businesses and employees that need work as they're hurting and the financial ripple it could cause on jobs... etc.  However, there is a line to keeping your people safe.

GameStop to employees: wrap your hands in plastic bags and go back to work -

PC Rigs, Builds, and Peripheral Devices / Valve Index VR
« on: March 28, 2020, 05:34:28 PM »
Has anyone bought into tho yet?   The Valve Index VR Kit drops in at around $1000 for the full setup and includes Half-Life:  Alyx. This game looks pretty good... see our post here:
Half-Life:  Alyx Topic

@FJ1X and I were discussing the kit the other day.  It seems like a legit setup. The price is pretty crazy... but it may be worth it?  Maybe this will be a good launching point for VR? 

@CreepinDeth @targetrasp @Polygon @Strubes @trkorecky @HylianSeven  - any of you looking to buy into the Index?

Link on Steam:
Valve Index VR Kit on

Thoughts,  comments?   Post it up!

Has anyone seen Half-Life: Alyx?   It's only a VR release right now.  From my understanding, this plays off the Valve Index VR headset / system that connects to your PC.  This starts out at $1000 ... imo it's pretty pricey.  Going to create a topic on the headset as well.  The reviews are giving this headset pretty high marks though... and apparently for those that can play VR games without issues ... Half-Life: Alyx  has a really good VR implementation.

Here's a pretty good Half-Life: Alyx review:
Half-Life: Alyx: The Review

How many of you are excited for Half-Life:Alyx?   I'm trying to find the article... somewhere Episode 3 was also rehashed as possible.  It's not like we've only waited 12 years for that. I guess we will see if that happens as well.  Another topic for another post. 

@Polygon @trkorecky @CreepinDeth  - have you checked this out?

Thoughts , comments ... post it up!

Not sure if anyone saw this yet...  it's pretty cool as I really wanted the 1st game in the list... the 2nd will be fun.  The games are: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Dirt Rally 2.0

General Discussion / Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie after release topic
« on: March 19, 2020, 07:57:32 PM »
Alright... who has now seen this and what are your thoughts?  I have yet to see this movie and will probably rent it with all the virus stuff going on at this point.   It looked interesting with the changes they made but heard it was crazy in a few areas.  I’ll save that for The discussion. 

Thanks to @retro junkie this is all I can think about when I hear “sonic the Hedgehog the movie ...”


Lol  ;D

ok... so my Turbo Express has been down for some time... probably 2-3 years.

@targetrasp  you mentioned a capacitor set on Ebay… I Think I found them.  Do you know of anywhere else outside Ebay to get them?  I don't really Ebay anymore.  I'm searching to see if I can find it outside of Ebay.

I recently purchased a new soldering iron for other projects... and it needs to be broke in.   It's time to fix the Turbo Express!

Who else has or have had this issue?   Post it up!

General Discussion / Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
« on: January 05, 2020, 06:06:18 PM »
Alright... who has seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?   I thought it was by far the best of the last 3 trilogy... but also... probably one of the better Star Wars movies ever made... rivaling Rogue One.

Without providing spoilers at this time... I'm curious how this movie held up for everyone that has seen it.  Post up your thoughts and opinions of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

General Discussion / The Incredible Hulk - Ed Norton 2008 Version
« on: January 01, 2020, 04:40:04 PM »
This was the last of the Marvel MCU movies that I needed to see to have seen them all.   There was a good deal on the Blu-ray and I obtained The Incredible Hulk... and it did not disappoint.

I thought the movie was WELL done.  It sucks there are distribution / rights / license issues... I really think they could've done at least another 1-2 Incredible Hulk movies.   However, they were reduced to making Hulk appearances in other movies due to these issues.  Ed Norton was a great choice... and did a superb job.   He is totally different than Mark Ruffalo … who in my opinion is an equally good Hulk... just in a different way.

It's definitely not as viewed or talked about in the Marvel MCU... the movie didn't do particularly well in the theaters.  However, this has been typical of Hulk throughout the years.  Personally... I really liked the movie.  They left a potential sequel wide open as well.   

Who here has seen it?   What are your thoughts on the Incredible Hulk?  Post it up!
