I suspect it's more cost versus market. There's only a few hundred thousand Vives sold. Same for Rift. PS VR has about a million sold. It's hard to invest the time and money that it takes for a...

I put in my 1080Ti FE last night. Tweaked the fan curve to be a little more aggressive under load, and put power limit to 120% in case it helps maintain boost, but don't really plan on doing much...

I would guess this means that the Switch doesn't keep the HDMI audio connection 'alive' while no sound is playing, and that your receiver is taking just a few seconds longer to lock on to the signal...

Decided that it is time to upgrade my refurb 970, which itself was a RMA replacement for a GTX780 forever ago, and I'll be getting the 1080Ti. Mostly for VR purposes, as the low settings required...

I mentioned earlier that in my smaller second room I have some slight Joycon desync issues, even though I don't in the larger room.

I ended up going with the DIY conductive foam fix, since I...

One big hardware nitpick that I have is that unless I'm missing something, there doesn't appear to be any way to wake the Switch from a wireless JoyCon. It's such a minor thing, but it's pretty...

You'll probably find out later about what you can trade the Korok seeds for, but you'll find a bigger forest creature at some point that will trade them. Twice along the path between towns, and then...

Nope, not at all concerned. For one, the Nintendo branded case I bought came with a screen protector so it's totally fine now. :D

On the one hand I feel like I should be using the trial period to be previewing this since I already pay for EA Access. On the other hand, my time has been sucked away by Breath of the Wild. I...
