I would recommend watching a stream on Twitch to get an idea of how the game works - Deadly Slob (Canadian too) is a good person to follow in my opinion.

Can anyone recommend a good switcher?

I finally built my video game shelf and have 19 consoles I need to connect to 2 TVs. Looking for separate HDMI and RCA switchers, 12 inputs each.

I've been doing some searching but seeing a lot of junk, has to be something good out there.


Thanks

If you find a good quality RCA hub/switch, I would like to know about it. I've resigned myself to swapping cables for retro consoles to plug into the TV since the video and audio quality has obvious degradation when attached to most switchers.

I was thinking more build quality an design, I wasn't considering the signal quality passing through these things. One more thing to consider, thanks!

Finally made it through Star Wars Squadrons campaign, but it felt like a chore after about 6-8 hours. Game gives me a mega headache (that's without VR). Played a few multiplayer games, but I think I'm gonna put this one to bed for the headache thing. Too bad, cause it's a rather excellent space sim

I agree with the guys on the last page, Tarkov has been a hell of a lot of fun this wipe

I think it's pretty much safe to say at this point with all of the Resistance screenshots that Insomniac is posting on their social media that we should expect a new one or atleast a remaster.

Is that game really relevant enough to warrant a remaster? It's okay but kind of a ho hum FPS like Killzone. I could understand a Resistance sequel for this generation but remaster doesn't make a lot of sense.

I personally am not interested in a remaster since I'm not a big fan of playing a game more than once even if the graphics are better. Remakes are a different story because they can feel like a whole new game.

There seems to be a demand though for a remaster based on the comments every time they post something. I think more people want a new game though. From what I just read it sounds like it could be a reboot.

I've been playing Fell Seal a bunch over the last couple of weeks and recommend it to anyone that enjoyed Final Fantasy Tactics. Scratches the same itch with a few differences, but I've been enjoying it.

Damn Shoppers Drug Mart is fast shipping things out. I ordered another PS5 controller earlier today since they were emailing out $20 vouchers if you spent $75 and I had $50 worth of points and I just got a shipping notice.

If it's anything like when I ordered my PS5, the shipping notice was generated also immediately, but Canada Post didn't actually get the package for another week or so.

It says today they picked it up but I'm not expecting it for a while. The post office here is backed up so bad they have to store mail an hour away in Flin Flon because they don't have the space. I have things I ordered a month ago that still haven't showed up.

Xbox Live Gold doubling their price from $60 to $120 in the US.

Just a way to get more people over to Game Pass Ultimate, IMHO there is no reason why people should be on XBox Live Gold and not on Ultimate considering what you get with Ultimate.

Wouldn't be surprised at some big increases on Ultimate as well if you're charging consoles $120 US a year baseline service to just access the internet/multiplayer.

Access to internet is free under Xbox Live, If you don't plan on playing any online multiplayer games.

And yeah, I assume there will be price increases to ultimate but I am not expecting anything substantial. Even if it went up to $20 a month here in Canada it is well worth it.
