    I know for a fact that one of those dates listed is bollocks, so I'd assume the rest is tbh.
  2. Oh, sorry - I didn't mean to stand in the way of any deal. Hope I didn't. Your games will be better, I am sure.
  3. I'll rectify this - PM incoming.
  4. Really helpful advice, all - thank you. @mushashi that is the one I'm think of. I've been running off a Razer Blade for the last three years, so I'm used to the noise - just don't really have space for a desktop PC in the current set-up. I'm mainly interested in the 2060 for the ray-tracing, and that's mainly for Cyberpunk, but will continue to investigate - maybe I don't need it to be an ultrabook. Thanks again.
  5. I wonder if you wouldn't mind indulging me on one last laptop question. I'm after the Zephyrus G14, but the only variant I can find in the UK with an RTX 2060 is a QHD screen, which I understand will impact the framerate. However, I have a 1080p monitor at home I could easily link to - so my question is: if I find some games running poorly on 1440p, would outputting only to an external 1080p monitor give me exactly the same grunt as if the internal display was 1080p? And if that 1080p monitor had a 120hz refresh rate, would that effectively be using the laptop power as efficiently as it would if its internal screen was the same? Finally (sorry) would knocking down the laptop screen to 1080 resolution if needed have any significant drawbacks? Sorry!
  6. I'm thinking of getting a new gaming laptop. Aiming for an RTX 2060 but a little confused by the CPU demands. How much of a difference is there between a Ryzen 7 and 9? Is it likely to be noticeable or make much of a difference? Laptop screen will be 1080p, though may output to 4k TV at home. Sorry for the n00b question.
  7. It's great, but why no Hearts?
  8. Oh wow - my first issue. I re-read some of them recently and was pretty embarrassed, but boy they were fun times.

    There's no sign of mine being despatched, though I did back it towards the end of the campaign. Did you get any sort of email confirmation they'd sent it ahead of its arrival?
  10. Code didn't work for me so must be account specific

    Half-Life: Alyx

    I had exactly the same issue. I would love to say I knew how I solved it, but a combination of re-installing the beta streaming service on PC and a few PC restarts ended up sorting it. Have to agree with those above - untethered performance is night and day with this. I couldn't play without the wire yesterday; today it was close to flawless. Chapter 3 is fucking intense though I have to say.

    G2A.com - legit?

    Where do CDKeys get their (cd) keys from?
  13. If you're anything like me, you'll set out to be disciplined and only buy one or two games, but very quickly go all-in. Beat Sabre is fantastic - particularly if you mod it. Pistol Whip is a lot of fun. Super Hot is extraordinary - easily the most engrossed I've been in VR, though you need 2m x 2m floor space minimum (I've played it in a smaller space but have been lucky not to smash a controller against the wall. Moss is unbelievably cute Vader Immortal is generally okay, but with a couple of brilliant moments. If you have a gaming PC and want to link the Quest to play Steam VR/Rift games, this USB cable is an ugly colour, but it is in stock and works: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07D7NTNDK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Alternatively, Virtual Desktop generally works as well as people claim. You're in for a fantastic time - enjoy!
  14. I think it over-clocks the console slightly and adds in a load of extra emulators. Feels nicer, though that may be psychological..
