Yes, I'm sure everyone has the latest and most expensive CPU overclocked to 5,2gHz.
Def Jam FFNY is the only game I missed not having on PC, although I'll probably try out Black sometime. Who even cares about the rest of the shit?
holy shit not even Mednafen took me more than 30 mins to configure, just play on consoles because you are clearly too dumb to use a emulator properly.

this has to be bait, how can someone be that stupid?
I love me some turn based games. While the PS2 has a tremendous library of JRPGs, most of them are action RPGs which I don't like much. I prefer the classic Final Fantasy type of turn based RPG. What are some good turn based games on the Cube? On the PS2, I've only got the SMT games, DQVIII and Final Fantasy of course.

Skies of Arcadia, maybe?

What's the estimated drop rate when doing them unsynched? I can't get any of the faggots in my FC to get off their asses and level their BLUs and I don't trust PF to do Shiva Ex synched. I think just having a friend unsynch me through the fight might be faster, but if it's still at like a 2% drop rate, I'm not putting them through that shit.

>8th Gen: Rise of VR, sequel to many 6th Gen game series, infiltration of politics, rise of "esports" and heavy competition with PC gaming
am I the only retard who doesnt know the generation of consoles.
Honestly, yes. I've been gaming since the fourth generation with the Sega Genesis.
And I gotta say, video games were in their golden age during the sixth generation with these consoles.

I wish I could recapture the magic but honestly, I've bitterly accepted that I've outgrown video games and the industry has moved on without me. At this point, I'm just going to stop playing video games when I've finished my backlog.
>I've bitterly accepted that I've outgrown video games
Nonsense, go play some oldies or old favorites.

Reminder to all /v/ros just getting into PC gaming:
Do NOT fall for the memes about the GPU being entirely more important than the CPU.

Yes, when you first build your PC, the GPU will have a bigger impact on your performance, but consider this:
>Performance loss on an aging GPU can be mitigated by turning down settings, but once a CPU starts showing its age, you're just kinda fucked. There's very little you can do once it starts causing stuttering, heavy fps loss and crashes.
>Replacing a GPU is a quick 2 minute process that doesn't require swapping out anything else, but replacing your CPU usually requires a new motherboard and RAM at the very least.
>A good CPU will remain with you for very long and can easily carry you through the entire next console gen, but any GPU will show its age much sooner.
In conclusion: buy a good CPU, it might not seem important right now, but you will curse yourself for buying that i7 without hyperthreading or the outdated cheapo Ryzen sooner than you think.

>stock cooler
Away with thee Satan
Mostly agree with what you're saying, however lowering some graphics settings do increase CPU performance as well. Mostly level of detail settings.
is it better to have a weak cpu and a strong gpu or a strong cpu and a weak gpu? sorry im retarded, i havent upgraded since 2011
It's a huge waste. It's like having a supercar and driving only in first gear. A 2080ti user SHOULD he playing at 1440p 144hz minimum, preferably in 4k.
just got a 9700k on the cheap, performance is fucking insane, so I dont think I'll need to upgrade soon. A high end cpu will last you about 5years, my old 4790k still matched pretty good with my 2080ti. 9700k is a much better on the 1% lows though, and since it already beats the ryzen cpu's at gaming, mweh.

I can't be the only one getting annoyed of Sony always pushing 3rd person games with pretty graphics. And before you say "but anon there's Gravity Rush and the MediEvil remake" that doesn't matter when Sony never pushes those games in terms of advertising so they just release dead on arrival. It is fucking sad that their most generic game so far being Days Gone got way more push and advertising than Gravity Rush which is one of their most unique IPs.

Its not even cartoony franchises its that games that strictly centered around gameplay and nothing but gameplay.

The movie game bag is a cancer and sony must be purged of it.
TL;DR, games worth playing on the system get next to no marketing, and thus doesn't matter to them

>>giving a fuck about 6gb of hdd space
I do when it's my SSD and I want the main brunt of the SteamVR crap running off of it, but then you get this house-simulator crap bundlered with it. Had to go through the trouble of setting up a symlink to throw it on another drive without Steam being any wiser about it.
Standalone, it's a weak PC. You can play cucked versions of the simpler looking VR games like Beat Saber and Superhot. Link allows it to operate like any other PC headset, but it has to compress video on your PC and decompress it on the headset because the USB port (the only communication option) is not good enough for the data throughput of uncompressed video. The result is a little bit of input lag, and some artifacts around the edges of your vision. They try to keep the center of the screen nice and clear at least. They are hoping to improve this with a proprietary optical cable that hasn't been released yet.
It uses inside-out tracking which means your hand location isn't accurately tracked unless your hands are in front of the headset, which is a wider range than you'd think because the lenses tracking them have a very wide FOV. If you move the controllers outside the range of the headset, it will estimate their location based on the waggle data, and snap them back to where they belong when they come in range again.
Have you considered one of those hybrid drives so you can get massive amounts of storage but they also load very fast?
If they made a Quest 2 which could be connected to PC with Displayport and USB at the same time it would probably be the best VR headset period.
But it's facebook, so they won't. Right now it's like launch PSX/PS2. It has some games, but not really anything worthwhile, but it has the potential to shit on PCVR because of Facebook's big pockets and indies being sell-outs hoping their shit asset flips will sell better on Quest than on PC.

Is it worth spending an extra $10, $50 instead of $40, to get the wireless dongle? I dont want spend extra if bluetooth would have a signal thats just as good.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Nope, it also works flawlessly with my iPhone XR, and you can also use it with the switch with an adapter.
If you plugged it into a PlayStation would it work?
I don't know the benefits of the dongle over a bluetooth but it just works, no latency, no fuss, took like 10 seconds to install, connects instantly and it has been sitting on the backside of my case ever since I bought it so it might as well not be there. No complaints from me.
Bluetooth is shit for games everywhere. This isnt a Microsoft problem it's a Bluetooth problem.

Yes, get the adapter.
Just get a fucking wire controller so you never have to deal with nigger batteries or fucking charing packs ever again.

Hot damn, Anon. I'll add to your list that Shiva's adds aren't immune either.

Post abysea XI is a different world from a decade ago, so the old fags don't like it. It was much more group focused and required more planning and work on the user end to accomplish goals, unlike today's mmo's that give you a solo side-path to instant gratification. Even just getting your first job to level cap was an entire adventure of itself worth writing a journal over. Playing it today isn't the same as back in the day, so the old fags spit at it.
No, that puts you onto lock-on movement.

Shiva's adds are already a joke since everyone is spamming AoE on her, but being able to 'nope' the snakes out of existence and then twiddle your thumbs for 30s is a thing.
>need a variety of spells to complete carnivale 1-29
>only need exuviation (needed to unlock it anyway) and 1 physical dps spell to beat 30

>Shiva's adds are already a joke since everyone is spamming AoE on her
It does help a bit if you're fighting her solo. The adds are still a joke, but they can run through you if you get really unlucky with no echo.

Probably in response to complaints about lazy people who just wanted the story having to go out of their way for 25.
