  1. It took me a few minutes to realize they were saying “licker” 😛 instead of “liquor.” 🥃

    I suppose you need a PS4 for that.

    Mesh Network Discussion

    I picked up an Eero system a few weeks ago to replace my now-discontinued Apple AirPort routers. I had three AirPorts in all: a 3TB Time Capsule, a 2TB one, and an AirPort Extreme. I had the 3TB Time Capsule connected to my cable modem and the other two placed around the house to extend the signal. I have a three level house--basement, main floor, and an upstairs--with our cable modem down in the basement. For the most part, the Apple routers worked well, but I had two recurring issues. First, one of the AirPorts would occassionally disconnect from the WiFi network for no apparent reason. I would check the AirPort Utility App on my phone or iPad, and sure enough, one of them would be missing from the network. When I checked the device itself, I'd see the little amber light blinking, meaning something was wrong. The only way to fix it was to reset the router and set it up again, which was always a pain in the ass. The second issue was that the coverage throughout the house wasn't great, particularly upstairs. Because of the AirPorts need a surface to sit on, it limited my placement options. The one on the main floor tucked was away in our entertainment center where I suspect the electronics withing were attenuating the signal. The one upstairs sat in the corner of our bedroom, which was about as far away from the other two as it could possibly be. The top speed I can get through my ISP is about 278 down and I was lucky to get more than 10 down in our bedroom. Sometimes I'd get as little as 1 or 2. With the Eero, I wanted two things. First, I wanted a more reliable connection between all of my routers (i.e. no drops between the three routers). Second, I wanted a more consistent signal throughout the house, particuarly upstairs where our WiFi speeds have been slow. I bought the Home WiFi system, which consists of one regular Eero and two beacons. I have the regular Eero plugged into my cable modem downstairs, and one beacon on the main floor and one upstairs. Because I can plug the beacons directly into the wall outlet, I could place them in more central locations throughout the house. Now all three routers are placed more or less on top of one another rather than in disperate locations throughout the house. Additionally, I can place them in open areas where there is little to no interference from other devices. The end result is that I've gotten what I had hoped for. So far, I have not had any routers drop out of the network, and the speeds have been very fast and consistent throughout the house. In the basement and on the main level, I can get close to hitting my top download speeds, and upstairs I get around 150 down most of the time. I'll have to keep an eye on how things go as time goes on, but for now, I'm pretty happy with what I have.

    The Last of Us II - Gameplay Reveal

    As I said in the God of War thread, "single-player games are dead," my ass.
  5. This is correct. The 30fps is rock-solid though.

    E3 Major Release Calendar

    Thanks! I see four games this year that I want to get: Forza Horizon 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. So many released dates to be announced though...
  7. On a related note, Digital Foundry Retro took a look at the 2003 demo reel for Halo 2 to see how much of it held up in the final game. Regardless of whether or not the visuals of the final game lived up to this demo (they didn't), this is still one of my favorite E3 showings ever.

    They're also brothers which would make it even weirder.

    The Last of Us II - Gameplay Reveal

    Seriously, the wizards at Naughty Dog never cease to amaze me. Do my eyes deceive me? Is this running at 60fps?
  11. I’ve binged on the three Forza Horizon games in the past half-year, so I’m definitely interested in this. I don’t know if I’m a big fan of the online open world aspect though. I prefer to play the single-player, and I’d hate to see that aspect removed for this game.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps trailer

    Damn, this looks so good. I loved the teaser trailer from last year. I was very happy to finally see some gameplay footage at the Microsoft E3 presser. Boo-urns on the 2019 release date though.

    Rate the Microsoft Xbox Conference....

    I give it a solid B. I liked the variety of games on display and it seems like they have a good lineup of games in development. I also liked seeing Phil Spencer announce Xbox’s renewed commitment to first-party titles with the addition of those five studios. My only gripe is that many of the games announced are coming in 2019, including my highly anticipated Ori and the Will of the Wisps. And who the hell knows when Halo Infinite launches? Xbox fans have a lot to look forward to, and the conference definitely got me excited for the platform. It’s just going to take a little while longer for these announcements to bear fruit.
  14. Well, I have a t-shirt with the Playstation logo on it, so I guess, I can’t pretend I’m too good for something like this.
