  1. I wonder what it's like on carpet? I want to buy it but think the living room / dining room carpet would be slightly too thick
  2. That video is excellent. I've never played bridge crew but i'll be getting it for the quest tonight
  3. Ultrawings is quite good. I've been trying to buy the elite strap but sold out everywhere. Oculas have them for preorder but a 3 week wait. I'm too impatient for that.
  4. Thanks, i'll give it a go later. Will probably sell my Rift S now if i can get the wireless stuff working
  5. Do i need both the store version and the sideloaded version of Virtual Desktop to play PCVR games wirelessly on the Quest 2? I wasn't going to bother with sideload if i could help it.
  6. Exactly this for me too. That and the fact that i have a decent gaming PC and can play the xbox stuff on that.
  7. Asked for a refund on Steam this morning and had it accepted and returned within an hour!
  8. I've preordered this on steam and played a bit of the beta. Can I get a refund if I've played more than 2 hours of the beta?
  9. I love him, the absolute mentalist. He would be fantastic in the English PL, he would get the space he needs to make the most of his game. I never want him to leave though.
  10. Rangers new top, Castore's first football top. Looks really good with a nice detail on the back of the neck. Cant wait to get one to see what the quality is like.
  11. Really tempted to get one. I haven’t used my quest for a few weeks, no particular reason just been playing other stuff. I really need to get back in to it.
  12. I absolutely agree. I'm hoping that the whole OS for both new consoles is built around the SSD tech and data transfer etc. In a way, the new Xbox might be hampered by needing to have new first party games perform similarly on PC, seeing as they're pushing gamepass on pc pretty hard. Sony might have the advantage in that they don't need to worry about that, at least for PS5 exclusive titles. It's going to be fun finding out
  13. I'm not so sure that the bespoke solutions that Sony and Microsoft are touting as new, are much of an advancement on SSD drives that have been available for ages to pc users. They're certainly new to consoles. I suppose it's down to the bespoke OS more than the hardware.
  14. https://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/PRIME_B350M-A_CSM.html Supported CPU’s listed on this page A Ryzen 5 2600X would be my choice. I have a R5 2600 and it’s great, paired with a gtx 2060 super.
  15. Having your Operating System on a SSD makes a huge difference to boot times on PC. If i was to recommend a quick upgrade to anyone is to get a 256 or 512GB SSD and install windows on that. It really does make a huge difference, maybe not in gaming performance, but to enjoyment and instant usability.
  16. 1440p is where it's at for me. It seems more noticeable going from 1080 to 1440, than 1440 to 4k in actual looking at the monitor with a game in motion. The jump to 4k isn't worth the fps trade off in my opinion.
  17. good point, the Xbox and PS4 are both plagued with constant game updates. Not the console's fault of course but it is a factor in the convenience argument. I guess some people will still have the perception that pc gaming is hard to get i to, and it does have a high initial monetary outlay. An interesting discussion for another day
  18. I have fallen in to this trap numerous times before. I've only now realised that previously "top end" PC's will be capable gaming machines long after they are no longer considered top tier. I gave my old i7 960 setup (over 10 year old processor) with a GTX 1060 to my brother in law and he's still happily gaming on it, oblivious to the fact that it would be considered an out of date relic now.
  19. I have a Ryzen 5 2600 and just got a 2070 Super (with the money i had saved up for a PS5). My next upgrade would be the processor but to be honest, i reckon i'm fine for at least another year or even 2 with my current setup. I had a Xbox One X which was great, i thought Forza 7 was especially good on it, until i tried it on PC. My PC with my old GTX 1080 ran it on Ultra at 1440p without breaking a sweat. As good as the consoles are now, they still really cant compete with a mid to higher tier PC when it comes to pure grunt. Consoles do have the social and convenience factor on their side though. tldr: the pc you currently have is probably more capable than you think and probably doesnt need upgrading
  20. We use discord for chat just now but the xbox option sounds ideal, i'll give that a go
  21. This is a major factor in me deciding to be PC only from now on. One piece of kit that i can upgrade incrementally that will play the library of games i have amassed over the gaming generations. It's a pity as the consoles have nailed the social aspect (party chat etc), but dick moves like this from Sony don't help matters.
  22. Pistol Whip - flat screen Rock version looks fun
  23. I use Wander quite a lot on the quest. It's basically Google earth with a new interface. We used it to scout out potential holiday destinations for next year
