    FREE $19.99 Game Transistor April 18th

    Fun little game. The story is a bit intense for the game play.

    Thinking of Purchasing Jaybird X3

    The connecting cord is heavy and awkward. It would always get caught on my shirt collar and pull out an earbud. The sound quality was awful... seems to be a trend in the wireless IEM world. Sound fatigue is a big problem. While the X3 checks off all of the boxes, the only benefit is a big price drop because the X4 is now out (which I haven't bothered trying). I've had better luck with the Jabra 65t in every way... sound quality, fit/comfort, staying in my ear, etc.. Yes they cost way more.

    Does Dolby Digital allow 7.1 over optical?

    Optical does not support 7.1 channels. The spec only provides bandwidth for 6 channels.

    Forza horizon 3 or 4?

    Doesn't feel like it even though Reddit discussions say the FH4 map is larger.

    Forza horizon 3 or 4?

    I find FH4 to be very repetitive. I feel like I'm always in the same locations or I was just here a couple minutes ago. The map on FH3 sells it for me. Plus the events and the in game hype was really fun for me.

    Who likes subnautica?

    I haven't played it myself, but I've watched several walkthroughs on YT. It was a great adventure game from my perspective. Reaper leviathans... holy crap

    New PC Parts still the same problem

    Have you actually installed drivers from nvidia?

    Just be aware that fiber optic does not support 8 channels for 7.1 surround sound. Optic supports up to 6 for 5.1 at most. This is usually not a big deal with receivers as you can use a built-in DSP to up mix and it will do wizardry to make sound come from all your speakers.

    Creative Labs has always had this issue. There hardware is great, when it works, but the software/drivers have always been bad. I don’t think it’s an internal short... this is just how CL products work. They had some pioneering technologies. EAX was a great concept that we don’t even think about anymore in modern times. But the industry is far beyond that now. I cannot believe CL is still in the tech industry. If your serious about audio, you should consider moving up to a DAC/amp for stereo or a receiver for multi channel. These are the best ways instead of a $250 card from EVGA. Your sound will remain consistent in the future since separate audio components are less likely to break, so this won’t be the last PC you pair it to. There’s usually no drivers required. if you have to stay with a sound card, consider a used one from ASUS. They are a little older, but I doubt they have the same driver issues as CL. And it will be much cheaper.

    Why am I so bad at Rocket League

    First off, don't be too hard on yourself. This game takes thousands of hours to master. I have close to 500 hours and I'm in the Plat struggle and Diamond players are noticeably better. Just takes time. Honestly, even though it doesn't give you XP and people would kind of make fun of you for it... just play against the bots to start. There is a lot to learn and practice. I started with 2v2, then went up to 2 bots vs me only, then I went to 3v1. Started at pro and moved to all-star 3 bots vs me. When you can consistently win against them, then you are definitely better than silver. But it's not easy. Dealing with three all-star bots is constantly challenging. It will quickly teach you how to kickoff, get the boost, and get back to defend. And it will insanely improve your defensive skills. I found 4v1 to be doable but very unfair. Another thing that helped me improve slightly is learning what to do and how to position myself. I learned this by watching pro players... not their tutorials.... just the pro players doing pro things. There is a massive tournament this upcoming weekend with all the big players from North America and Europe. Butttttttttt also, as others have said... just have fun. 100 hours into an e-sport game is way too early to be concerned about the grind.
