Red Dead Redemption 2 / A comic to pump you up for RDR 2

General discussion / RDR in 4K
« on: April 10, 2018, 07:39:41 PM »
I haven’t had a chance to update my game yet, but RDR has been enhanced for the Xbox one X and now rounds in 4K. Can’t wait to check this out.

From Ars Technica:

“The arguable biggest news of the day is that Red Dead Redemption's Xbox 360 version has now been patched to take advantage of Xbox One X hardware. That means, like other Xbox 360 games given the X treatment, RDR will now render at nine times its original 720p resolution. Should you have a 4K TV, an Xbox One X, and a copy of RDR, you'll be able to play the game at 3840x2160 pixel resolution once its patch launches sometime today.”

Gaming / Dolby Atmos
« on: December 22, 2017, 08:23:58 AM »
If you have a newer Xbox, like an X or S, you can use Dolby Atmos either through a home theater receiver or much more economically through any headphones. I added a couple of up-firing speakers to my 5.1 and the sound is fantastic. Most new movies are mixed in Atmos and it does what it says on the tin. If you download the Atmos app you can buy an extension to allow it to work for headphones. $15 or so. It’s one of those things that you don’t quite get until you experience it yourself. Worth a look if you have the right box.

Updated the Xbox club whatnots.

I'm in. My Xbox one has served me well but I'm ready to upgrade. I'm hoping that it comes out right around rdr 2's release. If you're interested in the technical aspects, this digital foundry video does a good job of laying things out.

Red Dead Redemption 2 / LFG extreme hardcore test. Help a pug out.
« on: March 02, 2017, 02:06:30 PM »
I'm hoping to revive extreme hardcore for the new game and I'm hoping that the new Xbox tools will make things easier. I'll look at arena to see if the rules can be globally applied. But even without that I think the "looking for group" will work a treat. I can set the time and description and it should show up to club members. I'm hoping that the time will adjust for everyone's locality, but I'm not positive yet. Can anyone in the forum club check it out and let me know here if it pops up for them or if they had to look in the club to see it. And if you're not in the us east time zone does it show your time rather than 4:30 pm? I think we can run it once a month at least.
PS, if you haven't joined the club, now's the perfect time.

PPS: It let me choose RDR2, but wouldn't post.

Gaming / PS4 4.5 update beta
« on: February 03, 2017, 02:32:23 PM »
External HDD Support
Custom Wallpapers
Quick Menu Refresh
Simplified Notification List
Post on PlayStation Network Activity Feeds
3D Blu-rays on PlayStation VR
And more undetailed features.
Boost mode for PS4 Pro owners.
"Experience improved gameplay, including higher framerates, for some games that were released before the introduction of the PS4 Pro"
Access upload/download gave save data from homescreen options menu.

Number 1 is definitely the big one I think. The USB 3.0 interface means you'll get the same speed from the external. If you really want an upgrade, make it an SSD. If cutting load times in half sounds like a worthy improvement that is.

The more I see about this game, the more I want it.

Gaming / Overwatch

I just can't get enough of this game and I thought I'd share a few clips and maybe get a small discussion going if we have any Heroes besides Craigyroo and myself here. I've been without PS4 for 3 weeks now, but the Pro arrives in 1 week so I'll be back in the fray there too.

3 snippets here. I'm especially happy with the Zarya clip. I've been playing her quite a bit and she can absolutely dominate if you play her correctly.

Gaming / Traded in my PS4
« on: October 13, 2016, 02:51:38 PM »
to preorder the PS4 Pro. I had a couple of 3 year old iPhones too and the trade in value got me to within $60 of the Pro price. My controller was going a bit soft anyway, so it was a no-brainer. Like the vault-tec guy, I'm prepared, for the future!

Gaming / PS4 and Xbox one multiplayer together??
« on: March 17, 2016, 11:30:20 AM »

Who knows if this will actually happen, but if you strip away dumb fanboy bullshit, this could be a great development. I'm hoping the powers that be play nice together and make this a reality. Rocket League would be a great start.

Multiplayer General Discussion / Throwback Thursday

Here's a shot from an extreme hardcore Saturday in October, 2011. It's a bit blurry, but you can make out some names which might ring a bell.

Grand Theft Auto / The real life Alamo Sea
« on: September 26, 2013, 10:04:05 AM »
Alamo sea (Trevor's area) is based on the Salton Sea in California. John Waters (Hairspray) did a fabulous documentary on the area a few years ago. I highly recommend that you check it out. It's strange and amusing. Anthony Bourdain also came here for No Reservations a while ago. Here's a trailer for the movie, Plagues and Pleasure on the Salton Sea. Rockstar nailed the area so well that I expect to bump into Hunky Daddy or Naked Don soon.

And salvation mountain.
