    I bet Lauren Cohan got a taste of that sweet big screen payday and decided screw TWD since they aren't paying her as much as Lincoln anyways.

    What kind of connection was the old CRT monitor? VGA? A vga to hdmi adapter should work. If you have one of those you might have bought the wrong type. There are hdmi to vga convertors that have the same looking connections but will only convert a digital signal to analog when you'd want one that converts from analog to digital/hdmi output.
    Good luck finding CRT monitors nowadays. I haven't seen one for sale in years.

    Check your county or local town/city website for electronic recycling days and fees. Near me it's like $25 to recycle a CRT monitor or old tube TV. I remember back in the day the garbage company would pick up everything. Now it's a fee for everything.

    These were terrible trailers TBH. I was actually pretty impressed by this one. I liked it better than the first Jurassic World. It had two well fleshed out arcs. I honestly think they need to put the whole thing to an end with JW3. There really isn't much more they can do, and making another dinosaur would just be dumb at this point.

    I don't think my PC has a graphics card. From what I could tell my CRT Monitor wouldn't turn on as the small green light wouldn't turn on and I was hearing a ticking sound whenever I tried to turn it back on after turning it off.
    Also I got the new wire today and it works.

    My only problem was with my HDTV as I had to change it from 16:9 to Screen Fit.

    I really should've read the back of the thing before I bought it as it says HD to VGA. I've bought from this nearby shop before. And usually I would be told no refunds. I felt like I was very specific in that I needed to hook up my PC up to an HDTV. I guess I'll be there tomorow trying to explain they sold me the wrong part.
    *Edit 1*
    I got a refund after them trying to convince me that HD to VGA is the same as VGA to HD. They had to test it before they refunded me and it worked. I didn't see the test as it was in the back. So this all feels very weird because it somehow works for them, but not for me. And if it didn't work for them I wouldn't have gotten refunded.
    *Edit 2*
    I think I found what I was looking for on amazon.com from a 3rd party seller. A 6 foot cable VGA to HDMI Adapter with audio from Foinnex. Plus 2 Year Protection.
    ....
    I would've copy & pasted the URL, but the Steam Machine browser doesn't have that ability.

    I just watched a quick video of GW1 roller beetle racing. I don't remember ever playing that race. I can definitely see the resemblance to the new mounts tho.

    I'm so hyped for that new mount! It looks freakin awesome!!!!!!

    From the jarring janky walking animation, I'd say it requires some skill to parry and strike. It looks like there is some sort of stance system similar to For Honor, but not quite as complex as needing to be in the right guard to defend. Seeing as this is a product from the inFAMOUS devs, I expect to be an OP character that is vulnerable to getting hit. That was the interesting thing about inFAMOUS in how the protagonist was so powerful and could kill people with ease, but if you got hit, you'd die pretty fast from very little damage compared to other games of the genre. The hud was hidden for this demo, so it will be interesting to see how that multiple take down system works when he drops into the shrine.  Since you don't have super powers, it will be interesting to see what the upgrade system will consist of, whether it be move sets, armor, or other abilities and enhancements to those like the multi-takedown. Will we get a bow like the NPC, or are these NPCs with us all the time like a Mass Effect party system where we can upgrade them? I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    This is probably the only game I'm hyped about out this years E3. God the game looks beautiful.

    Holy shit, officially hyped.

    Worst campaign in COD history... "imagine yourself in a frozen forest"... remember that when you're playing.

    Now that you said that, you'll be in the middle of moving when it comes out.

    Now that is a trailer.

    It looks good but, again, so did Destiny before it launched. It was nice to see some actual game play and by what I can see it looks like at least that is pretty solid. Here's to hoping we get more footage like this in the months to come.

    Not loot boxes. Skins and vanity items will be for sale as direct purchases. Everything can be soloed, but will be a little harder. Actual gameplay starts at around 13:13

    No timed exclusive release despite being on the xbox conference. They literally have no 1st party support and have to use 3rd party games as a front.

    YES!!!!!!!

    In all seriousness though I'm glad we're back to the main storyline. I liked NF, but it didn't have the same feel. And I do hope to see Kenny. I couldn't turn my back on him after all we've been through, he was all that was left of the original group. Hopefully this is the last game period of this storyline. If Clem dies, they don't need a game about AJ. I'd rather see a game about Morgan and what he did between disappearing between Atlanta and Alexandria, or have a whole untold stories anthology set like how Negan became the leader of the Saviors, How the Governor became what he was. With the show at its last breath, I'll miss it and I'd like to see things like this carry on. Hell I'd like a game about what Kenny was doing between falling through the roof until he met back up with Clem.

    The controller is comfortable to hold. But the right touch pad makes it hard to aim. It really should've been a control stick.
  21. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Myk JL in Atari jumping back into the Console War?   
    So it could basically be a Steam Machine with a better controller?
    Not saying that would be enough for me to buy an Atari VCS, but the Steam Controller is the worst controller I've ever used.
    Also I would really need to see proof that Atari VCS could run modern games or even games that came out for PS3 & Xbox 360.

    If they would have made a base model that only had the original games and 2 updated joysticks. I would have been sold. Even at $100 I would have bought it because I could share it with my parents. They use to play tanks and asteroids. After Super Mario Bros. 3, it got too complicated for them.   With wireless joysticks they could play from their recliners. Seeing as this is a gofundme type deal, big developers aren't going to be porting Battlefield and COD to this. The market has become a stagnate system of Sony and MS delivering the big games and Nintendo doing its own thing with a strong first party IP. If you didn't get in the game after PS2/Xbox, you probably never will, thats when gaming became such a massive media market. Only Google could probably enter the fray with their own system. Or Amazon, but they haven't even made their first big IP yet from their gaming studio... I could see them tying in a prime membership with its online service which would bring people to it.
