KenjiUmino got a reaction from Monte_Carlo in Why do people still play on consoles?
I play both ways
I like consoles because its easier to build a collection of games that will still work in a decade or two when most PC games bought the same time might barely be playable (if playable at all) on newer systems and OS versions - I have a shelf full of PC games from the win 9x days that are pretty much useless now while I can still fire up my old PS1 games any second and load the savegame I created years ago.
try doing that on PC where most savegames not stored in some cloud will not survive a drive or OS upgrade
yes there are tools to back these up but I don't have any data on how good they really work - I have tried backing up resident evil 5 saves (before it went steam with cloudsave) and it was a nightmare !
only things that probably won't age well are ingame DLC and other stuff that does not come on a physical media (nintendo already shuts down the online stores for old consoles one after another and i fear the day sony and microsoft will follow this model)
online-only games will also be rendered useless once all the servers shut down so I don't buy those on consoles at all - specially if it requires a paid subscription to play online (looking at you, xbox live!!1!11)
speaking of multiplayer: local multiplayer (split screen) is where console games shine - PC games are catching up quickly but the PCMR is not quite there yet
KenjiUmino got a reaction from TheCamba in which PS VITA should i get original or slim?
the proprietary memory cards are expensive because of all the hardware DRM and other protection bullcrap sony built into it - not that this would have kept it from getting hacked anyway.
I recommend getting some controller grips with whatever model you decide on
it makes the thing more bulky but is totally worth it IMO - better grip and less strain when playing longer
KenjiUmino reacted to demonix00 in Show off your latest purchase!
I ended up getting another logitech M185 wireless mouse to replace the now dying (with a now buggy middle button) M185 I've had for a while, even though the laptop it's being used on is going into semi retirement in a few months time (it just means that I'll have a spare wireless mouse that actually works completely).
KenjiUmino reacted to shibbs in Corsair Hydro H55 vs H90 - worth the higher price?
I used a H90 for years on my PC. Now it's on the wife's gaming box. Still going strong. It's a great cooler. I changed the fan to something better, but that's not completely necessary at all.
KenjiUmino reacted to System Error Message in Help with router in dorm room!
Some phones use ethernet such as for VOIP. Getting a router will help but if they block NAT than you will need to turn off the DHCP server and plug everything into the LAN side. If it plugs into your desktop it is ethernet rj45 and you can run ethernet over rj11 too at 100Mb/s if the cable has 4 pairs.
When staying at student accommodation the ISP was a student one (not part of university) and they used mac for authentication, blocked NAT and limited the number of devices. Good security measure considering how many ill configured routers there are. I used my mikrotik router and managed to get over all their restrictions which is something that no tp link router is capable off.
Finding out what restrictions you have first is important. Its preferable to connect the WAN bit even if there will be double NAT otherwise disable DHCP and connect to LAN. If you dont disable DHCP your ethernet port is likely to be blocked.
KenjiUmino reacted to Streetguru in Can my computer make 4k videos
You'd need more RAM, and you might have to encode the footage to a different format to work with it
as for the monitor, just get more 1080p IPS displays rather than an ultra wide
Also you'll need a 4k monitor of course for the live playback
KenjiUmino reacted to MilkJugg24 in Wait for ps4 pro or just get slim ?
I'd just get the slim, or a used PS4 and a few games with the extra money saved.
The PS4 Neo doesn't seem very promising. I'm gonna call it here and say it'll easily be the worst modern console release to date.
I'd honestly recommend a Xbox One that way he can use his Xbox Live profile still, and doesn't have to deal with the migration of consoles.
KenjiUmino got a reaction from Technous285 in Starting Youtube On A Budget.
in my understanding, a b-roll is a second camera put up at a different angle than the main camera (a-roll?) - that term might come from back when cameras used reel-to-reel film rolls for storage - the b-roll could be usefull in editing to add in a few snippets in different angles here and there and maybe for providing some outtakes or "behind the scenes" content after the actual video
KenjiUmino reacted to YamiYukiSenpai in Cyanogen's new CEO and new strategy
Cyanogen Inc. shifts C-suite, idea for OS following downsizing | Pocketnow Cyanogen outlines exciting new “modular” strategy | TechnoBuffalo
Official announcement by Cyanogen
Since competing head-on against Google didn't work for them, chopping it up and provide the software in parts might just work. At least, that's how I understood it.
I'm glad they decided to try something a bit different. If they kept on going in that direction with McMaster, Cyanogen would've been vaporized.
I hope they'll survive.

KenjiUmino got a reaction from kirashi in Beginning to see a trend with MSI motherboards...
had a lot of MSI boards for years and years and I can't complain - but I also have not built any new MSI based PCs for some years now so either you got bad luck or msi has started to get sloppy with their quality control
