    Does MS make a HUGE difference to gameplay?

    Are you referring to response time? If so, I would say it does matter, but is wayyy overhyped. Do not fret over the difference between a display with a 5ms response time, and a display with a 1ms response time. Most modern displays are fine. If you aren't bothered by your current display, it isn't worth upgrading because you think a faster response will provide a superior experience - it probably won't. Also, manufacturers often stretch the truth when it comes to response times, so a 1ms display is often slower in reality.
  5. Yes, it's the same cooler.

    New LTT subreddit!

    I don't see it as redundant, I see it as efficient. Having a single place for LTT social media, videos, and important updates (all under one account) is appealing to me.

    New LTT subreddit!

    I'm not going to pretend as if they aren't there: they most certainly are. However, it's not like creating a subreddit for a specific community will cause some mass influx of angry redditors to the forums.

    New LTT subreddit!

    I don't think reddit has any larger percentage of idiots/trolls than the rest of the internet; it's just a larger community, so you notice them more.

    Why would we not? :mellow:

    New LTT subreddit!

    For a single place to have all of the updates. Unless a twitter feed is incorporated into the forum. I don't intent any real forum-like discussion to take place there - it's more of an integration thing.

    New LTT subreddit!

    I don't know if any of you have seen /r/linustechtips, but it is entirely dead. So, I made reddit.com/r/Linus_Tech_Tips yesterday and threw a little bit of CSS on it (no clue what I'm doing, it's a WIP). At the very least his videos will be posted there by a bot, and I will post some of his updates from twitter/instagram (for people who don't have twitter/instagram accounts), along with other various things (WAN Show reminders, important forum topics, etc.). Hope you guys like it!

    No more unboxings in Linus Tech Tips in 2014?

    I'm for it. I watch your channel now for analysis and a little bit of personality (the end of this last week's WAN Show reminded me of how much I missed the oldschool after parties with retro games and terrible jokes). If you have a daily news show, that would increase my engagement in your content. I think you have a really unique perspective on where products fit into the market, the future of new technologies, and I really respect your opinion (I would not have appreciated G-sync for what it is without your testimony). Couple that with gamer Luke, and you have a very good show. I don't watch your unboxings for stat sheets, I watch them for the overclocked benchmarks at the end, the "So, where does this fit in?", and the Linus-in-a-bathtub. If you can incorporate that into your new set of content, and give more in-depth reviews, I see nothing lost. At the end of the day, people hate change, so you will get flak for this, but I think it's a good long term way to improve the channel. I have a lot more reasons for advocating this change, but you get the idea.
