What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: I find that ESO's best played in bursts, a region at a time. It somehow doesn't flow like WoW, GW2 or LOTRO. And I have to say I prefer playing with the Xbox crowd to the PC Master Race. Some of the latter take things far too seriously. Apr 22, 2016 7:36:22 GMT
gekko: I loved it for a time, but the environments and missions got a bit samey. I don't usually go in for MMOs or multiplayer but I enjoyed co-opping in ESO. Apr 22, 2016 8:14:51 GMT
walkingdecay: I'm suddenly feeling nostalgic about LOTRO. Haven't rescued that sheep from the goblins in the Shire in ages, and I'm starting to fear for it. OK, off to spend the morning playing LOTRO... Apr 22, 2016 8:56:44 GMT
Martin: Have fun, and don't forget that sheep!! Apr 22, 2016 9:18:39 GMT
walkingdecay: Ta Martin. Looks like the update will take the rest of the morning though. Dragon Age it is then. Apr 22, 2016 9:40:33 GMT
Martin: Those compulsory xbox updates can be a real headache ;-| Apr 22, 2016 10:07:53 GMT
walkingdecay: Seems that thanks to Virgin spam filtering all my LOTRO emails my characters have been wiped. That's that then. Apr 22, 2016 10:50:36 GMT
walkingdecay: Apparently I'm going to see something on an 8K telly tomorrow. Isn't that higher definition than real life? Apr 28, 2016 21:29:03 GMT
ocarolan: Is 8K the cost of one as well? Apr 28, 2016 22:44:14 GMT
Martin: 8K? I'm really behind the times, as I was just trying to convince myself about 4K :o Need to skip a generation, perhaps? Let us know how immersive it was, Pete (although not if it's Big Brother or similar (puke) ) Apr 29, 2016 8:23:02 GMT
gekko: I spent quite big on my last TV, so I'm going to sit out this round. Nobody loves a gadget more than me, but my list of wants is too big to be fussed about 4K or 8K TVs just yet. Apr 29, 2016 20:45:31 GMT
Akquarius: TV ? Heard about it. I think we've got one, too. Never use it, though. May 2, 2016 17:07:40 GMT
walkingdecay: It was impressive. It was a "proof of technology" meeting for a games company that I test for when required. (NDA, but it's in the Midlands and a few miles from me). The game looked great; the connecting footage often looked like 3D, even though it wasn't. May 3, 2016 10:12:17 GMT *
walkingdecay: I'm not impressed with 4K in general. We bought a set when Samsung withdrew smart services from our old one, but in all honesty there's not a vital difference between 4K and HD on those shows on Amazon Prime. May 3, 2016 10:15:37 GMT
walkingdecay: 3D is brilliant though. You're effectively using two HD displays, and everything looks really sharp and bright. May 3, 2016 10:18:21 GMT
Martin: Is this the 'looks like' 3D or actual 3D effect, where you wear the goofy glasses? It's the glasses that put me off 3D - I'd definitely lose them, no doubt :grrr: May 3, 2016 10:26:02 GMT
walkingdecay: 3D with glasses. They're passive on the LG set, but easily outperform electronic 3D on the Samsung. They don't bother me because they're only used for the occasional blu ray, and games where the 3D conversion works really well, like Quantum Break. May 3, 2016 11:36:46 GMT
gekko: Anyone planning on taking the plunge with VR? I've got a preorder in for the Playstation version, which is due later in the year. I've tried it a couple of times at Eurogamer Expo. May 3, 2016 12:36:26 GMT
Martin: VR...eventually, yes. I'll need to see it working first, and it'll need to be completely immersive (:)) May 3, 2016 14:45:07 GMT
walkingdecay: I'll be holding off. Sony have a track record of poor support with the cameras and Move, and can't even sustain a decent first party catalogue this gen, so its VR will probably turn out to be Cinderella tech. Plus, it's the price of a whole console again. May 3, 2016 20:41:21 GMT
