    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - None More Black

    I’m set on an LG OLED soon and while they still don’t have the motion of plasma I’m willing to suck up some downgrades for 4K and HDR - pretty sure the game mode on the current models is very good (21ms tested) only the Sony seems to have terrible input lag and no danger of buying a Sony telly!

    Will do, Astro bot... wowsers Ive also got Resi 7, games have never scared me but I’m a bit worried about that one having spoken to a few mates... Bloody missed the discount on Rez, gutted but enough to be getting on with at the moment! I ended up getting the new VR bundle with Astro bot, Resi 7 and 2 move controllers for £250 so decent deal, eBay sale from ShopTo possibly cheaper but I was in the shop by then!! Does anyone use a USB hub? I hate the cables on the front - VR, Astro and HDD are a right mess at the moment

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    Right then you lot, I have been on the edge of buying PS VR a few times and this thread and game sent me over, I got this in a bundle and have had a few goes on it..... Mario beater my arse is what I said as I fired it up but fuck me, looking around the levels is just a game changer - genuinely this is the next ‘Mario 64 moment’ and I’ve not even got to the second world yet - I still have some reservations about it playing better than a top tier Mario game but so far the magic of the new is up there with anything I’ve ever played!

    Thumper was overwhelming, Astro Bot is mind blowing and either there is heavy assist or walking on rails is soooo easy because of the VR - you are in the level I am struggling to use the ear buds tho, kinda got my over ear headphones to work and much more comfy and there is a fair bit of light leak from the bottom of the headset if that makes sense!? Are there any advanced settings hidden away to finesse the focus etc?

    What screens are people playing on that give such extra lag - my plasma is 1080p and we have a low latency 1080p monitor and I much prefer gaming on the plasma over the monitor even if on paper it has lower lag. Loadout seems to me to have far more impact unless you are in the top 10% chasing that final 5% of advantage an ultra low lag screen offers! Unless you have some awful LED with loads of processing turned on of course!

    Rez has been the system seller to me and really I didn’t get one at launch due to stock, waited until Xmas thinking I may get one but didn’t - I have not played Rez and thumper because I knew I had to play them in VR and Astro Bot looks to be my breaking point! Now to decide if the Game deal will be beaten on Black Friday....

    I really have the itch for this again and Game have a deal with the newer head unit plus Astro bot and resident evil for 199 - seems a very good deal, given I traded in my move controllers () how essential are they for those games, thumper and Rez?

    I had a Tassimo and it’s better than instant, that’s it tho. Nespresso is actually decent, best pod machine by a mile - my bean to Cup makes a better cup again and is vastly cheaper to run and no eco concerns... Maybe it’s changed as pods have gone third party since I last looked but I worked out it would be under a year to pay back the difference in a decent nespresso & pods vs Bean to cup & beans but pretty sure pods are a fair bit cheaper now so maybe a longer pay back time.

    Is crunch required?

    Yeah but you get 6 weeks off after crunch (my wife works in a school and it’s shocking what the pressure teachers etc are under)
