I hear the sequel is even more gun pornier than the first and is great.
Good for Keanu.

iguel made ROBOCOP a bad motherfucker. RIP.
Yeah, he was great in that. Traffic too. Always liked his work, and that of his dad, Jose - of which I was just watching Cyrano de Bergerac the other day.
Weirdest coincidence ever. One time in a bar downtown they had a chalkboard in the can for people to graffiti on so they wouldn't write on the walls. I quoted Buckaroo Banzai, "No matter where you go, there you are." And as I walked back into the bar Peter Wellar himself is just sitting down at a table. Went over introduced myself and told him what happened. He agreed with was pretty weird but we had a laugh anyway. So while I never met Miguel I did meet Peter Wellar...who met Miguel.

I'm a big time Nintendo fan but I'm sitting this one out.
- Hefty price tag, no games included
- Anemic internal storage, sure its expandable but more $$$. Sure the games are on cartridges but they still need patches, DLC, etc etc.
- Very expensive peripherals, Nintendo is taking the toy approach here
- Outsourced online functionality, much of it through a smartphone app
- Paid monthly subscription for online play, not exactly a Nintendo strength in the first place
- Adding insult to injury they're offering free NES and SNES games monthly to people who subscribe...but they vanish the next month. Only Nintendo could be this stingy with 20-30 year old games.
- Even when docked Zelda is running at 900p
- 3 hour battery life (in Zelda apparently) is below even the Shield Tablet
- Confirmed launch line up is paltry yet again, Nintendo has learned nothing from its past 4 console launches apparently
By the time you add second joycon, grip, external battery for travel and some games you're looking at $600+. Oh and Nintendos clownshoes online multiplayer so probably $50+ a year for that. Pro controller for $80 hahah get the fuck out of here.
Anyways I just don't see the value there right now, big meh. Overpriced, underpowered and some frankly arrogant design decisions.

The fuck is 'DCI-P3'? Guess I should read the article but I just can't be arsed at the moment...yeah, something something lazy something something darkside something piss off, mate...
They don't explain it in the article as far as I can tell, but it's essentially a standard for a color gamut (in this case one that allows for the display of a wider gamut).
Also I know when they're putting a $2k price tag on a monitor they feel it needs a unique design but... ew.
It's way the fuck too small, especially at that price. 40-50" is the absolute perfect size for a 4k desktop monitor. Monitor manufacturers need to wise up. Can't wait to see if the new line of Samsung TVs will come in a version of that size.
Agreed! On a side note, though i'd like one of those monitors, am i wrong to think that we'll need some serious video-cards to really see the full benefits of this monitor. I know the low end limitations of gsync in terms of fps and that we can do 60 max details with high end cards. I max out the details on my xb270hu and usually play at 80 fps minimum. I want to do the same at 4k. HDR isn't widely supported so I'm strongly leaning towards enjoying 1440 for a couple more years.

i saw an HDR game on an HDR TV... the blacks are so good, it's like the TV looks as if it's completely turned off on the parts of the screen that are black.
Not just HDR; sounds like you saw an OLED screen.
yeah HDR isn't gonna fix shitty black levels. fyi that's how OLED works - each pixel is its own light source. no constantly on backlight to bleed through, so when it's off, it's truly giving off no light. so yeah, probably he saw an OLED screen.

I held off on this due to the issues people were having. Is that still a thing? How are the controls? I was hearing some grumbling about controls being wonky too.

I've never understood the attractiveness of being famous. Rich? Sure, having enough money to do whatever you want is a total win, but being famous? It always looked like a pain in the ass to me.

Yep, clearly a touchstone and a turning point in computer gaming. It is difficult to think there will ever be anything like it again in computer gaming.
Doom was a turning point for sure, but for me the defining gaming moment would be first starting Unreal. Back then I had 2 friends over, and the next 7 hours we forgot time and space, even eating, and were absorbed for the first time in what to us, was the most awesome gaming experience ever made.
Doom/Wolfen was censored in Germany.. so yeah
