    Games with AI Bots

    What are games with excellent AI bots that can be played single player or with a friend?

    Netflix 4K with a 4K monitor

    Will I be able to play Netflix 4K on my 4K monitor? Would a Xbox One X or PS4 Pro support Netflix 4K?

    QLED vs HDR

    Which monitor would be better for 4K Gaming? QLED Monitor https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0727RQZBZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_pefUBbM0SYHR0 HDR Monitor https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0798QLW64/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_fjfUBb0YN14X8
  4. I am looking for a budget notebook with MP4 playback that can play 60-90 minutes without being plugged into a power source, something that is portable and 10". I have seen the Fusion 5 notebook on Amazon but I am concerned as the reviews state the build quality isn't good, any other recommendations? Thank you.
  5. Yes, under 300 euros. The cheaper, the better to be honest. I have read good reviews on the Lenovo Tab 3, it has an IPS Display and decent sound according to the reviews. Do you have any other recommendations?

    Help choosing a monitor

    I am looking for a gaming monitor with excellent colour reproduction and I have noticed that many of the freesync monitors have excellent panels, VA or quantum dot technology. The only other alternative would be to find a G-Sync monitor with a VA panel but they seem to be a rarity. https://www.msi.com/Monitor/Optix-MAG27CQ Excellent contrast ratio and colour reproduction but my concern is the refresh rate. If I buy a freesync monitor, will I be able to take advantage of the freesync feature if I have a Nvidia card? I have also seen the Acer Predator XB271HU G-Sync 165Hz monitor with an IPS, how does it compare to a VA? Will it have the same level of colour reproduction? Thank you.

    Looks decent but my only concern is that 21:9 format isn't supported by all games.

    If that is the case, I could always cap the frame rate with RTSS depending on the individual performance of the game. Do you know any G-Sync monitors which have a similar VA panel and spec? https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-32GK850G-B-computer-monitor-monitors/dp/B078TTXLW5#customerReviews I have found this LG monitor but the reviews state it doesn't have the same coloration as the Samsung panels. Is it worth waiting for the HDR monitors instead?

    GPU prices all over the world.

    Unfortunately, I have read that there are bots that buy high-end graphics cards as soon as they come into stock.

    Should I sell my EVGA 1060 sc?

    Are you planning an upgrade? 1060 is still a viable card for 1920x1080 and 60FPS at high to ultra settings for the majority of titles.

    Skyrim SE - What's your FPS?

    Skyrim Special Edition is extremely well optimized and better than the original Skyrim in many areas, either card will work fine. You can even sustain 50fps+ with a i3 4150 and a 1050Ti, the game is not demanding at all. The game runs at 40-60fps on my laptop with a i7 6700HQ and a 960m 2GB at 1080p high settings, Bethesda have done a great job with the optimization.

    Triple 1080p vs 1440p 144hz vs 4k vs 3840x1440

    21:9 support can be incompatible with certain games and even G-Sync in certain cases if the game is tied to the physics engine, Bethesda games are a good example.

    TV question.

    Is it correct that high end VA panels suffer from worse viewing angles than IPS? Which display technology provides the best uniformity?

    Help me choose my TV (please) / Is this a good buy?

    The recorded input lag is 29ms in game mode and 46 in standard mode, it isn't the best television for gaming but it is very acceptable for a television in this range. If you are looking for 10-bit HDR panel, you are not going to find it with the premium UHD certificate in that price range but for the price, the Phillips television is good value for money if you receive a panel with minimal issues.

    Fallout 4 vs Doom (2016)

    I recommend Fallout: New Vegas over Fallout 3, many people have had compatibility issues with Fallout 3 running on Windows 10.

    Doom and Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition.

    What killed VR?

    The video is more focused on the HTC Vive and not VR technology overall, VR will provide many purposes outside of gaming. The Oculus Rift has attracted a large market of the simulator fanbase, that is because they focused on the perfecting the seating experience. In comparison, HTC Vive focused on shooting galleries and fruit ninja variants, it was great at first but it was only a matter of time before Sony or Samsung developed cheaper versions of the technology. For the simulator market, the major titles are already there with Elite: Dangerous, DiRT Rally, Project Cars and Euro Truck Simulator 2 but for other genres, there is still room for major titles.

    [UPDATE 2] NEW Red Dead Game teased?!

    The latest news is that the next installment of the Red Dead games will be an online exclusive title, I suspect it will be similar to Grand Theft Auto Online with heists and racing game modes.

    Are you bored? Be no longer!

    I agree, many people buy based on the marketing and the name of the IP over the production values or optimization of a title. Developers that try something different rarely receive the recognition they deserve as most people play what they regard as a popular product. Many people in younger generation never played old school first person shooter games, they only know the typical hand holding cookie cutter "cinematic" Call of Duty or Gears of War clones.

    TV vs Monitor 1080p 60hz

    If you can stretch your budget, you should consider a FreeSync panel to eliminate stuttering in more demanding titles that the RX 480 will struggle with. Personally, I think FreeSync and G-Sync are more important technologies for gamers over a wider colour gamut if you are not planning to use the monitor for colour sensitive work.

    Are you bored? Be no longer!

    I agree that it isn't a lot of money but it came out so close to big releases, Sid Meier's Civilization V and Dishonored 2 are on the horizon.The all-time peak player count for Shadow Warrior 2 isn't high for a major title but I think more people will pick it up when the steam sale is on. http://steamcharts.com/app/324800

    Are you bored? Be no longer!

    It is good that run and gun old school FPS games are making a comeback in the mainstream market over the the run and gun cover shooter, I enjoy games that just throw you in the deep end of the action without a tutorial or hand holding.

    When will we be able to truly run 4k?

    That is an interesting statistic, you can run the majority of the most popular multiplayer and indie games at 1368x768 on a Dual-Core i3 and Intel HD Integrated Graphics or relatively similar hardware. The only popular titles on Steam that require mid-range hardware are Grand Theft Auto V and the Bethesda titles but even they are relatively well optimized. I thought Virtual Reality could push hardware sales long term for enthusiast tech but with consoles offering HDR and virtual reality, many consumers will just pay a few hundred instead of spending thousands on a custom built machine for the latest Virtual Reality or HDR experience.
  24. If you want to learn to troubleshoot and repair computers, you should look into studying for the CompTIA courses and applying for help desk positions in the IT industry. PC market sales are at a low point and the market is declining at a home user level, many people prefer to use tablets and smartphones for home use. Businesses order laptops that are covered by a warranty and many laptops are covered by a warranty, new or refurbished.

    Is VR the next big flop?

    VR will be revolutionary but it will take time for the major developers to adapt, I think we will see a huge rise in popularity in VR when Fallout 4 and Doom are released for the platform. Major developers are working on VR titles that will for the PSVR as well, I think there will be a few major titles for VR in 2017 that will push the technology to mainstream popularity.
