  1. With that most recent news, I'm guessing we won't see another Star Trek movie for a good long while. Maybe not until DISCO has been on for a few years. We're probably done with the Kelvin timeline for all intents and purposes.

    Jan 19th: Punisher canceled.

    4K for life......for now.

    Got my Vizio P-Series 65-F1 on Monday, and I adore it. Got a great panel with little to no DSE, except in the corners where it's barely noticeable. Now I have spend a good amount of time with the settings and get the picture set up for TV/Movie and Gaming, but it looks spectacular with very little fiddling already. My wife even admitted it was money well spent (she was dubious, until I fired up the demo program on the set when I got it put together.)
  4. Give it another chance, I implore you. Season 3 is batshit insane. So glad Amazon picked it up for S4 (and hopefully beyond.) My lists (subject to change, like Joey, as I remember things) Movies ----------- Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse Avengers Infinity War Black Panther Mission Impossible Fallout Searching TV ---- The Expanse Bosch Better Call Saul The Man in the High Castle Doctor Who Games ------------ God of War Spider-Man AC: Odyssey Octopath Traveler Tetris Effect (I'm sure RDR 2 would be on here, but I haven't played it yet, waiting for the 4K TV before starting) Gadgets, etc. ------------- Nintendo Switch (bought this on a whim because I wanted something I could play while laid up in bed with my blown out back. Great purchase!) Xbox One X (don't even have the 4K TV yet, but I can see it's a huge improvement over the standard One, already) Xbox Game Pass (re-ignited my love of Xbox in a big way) Google Wifi (It's only been installed for a week, and I can definitely tell it's a mamoth improvement over my old setup. Super easy to set up, too.)
  5. Update, I went ahead and got the Vizio P-Series. It was $999 vs. $969 for the TCL at the local Best Buy and for the extra $60 I went for the 120hz panel and the HLG HDR. Gets delivered next Monday. Can't wait to finally get into 4K!

    Still enjoying the game, despite having my playtime curtailed by receiving Spider-man, RDR2, and AC: Odyssey for Christmas. I learned that setting up C.A.M.P. in Whitespring is a bad idea at my relatively low level. Logged in to mobs 50 levels higher than me a few times.... Ouch. Moved to somewhere more level appropriate. I also got the Fallout 76 Xbox One X for Christmas, so I have an extra game code, if anyone wants to buy it. $20? Anyone?

    I would pay good money to watch a sequel/spinoff of "Spy" revolving around Statham's Ford character.

    It wasn't a romcom, but "Game Night" was a pretty great comedy.
  9. You did, but honestly, I can no longer remember the context.... Edit: Found it!
  10. I'm not sure. You could be referring to the animation style or maybe your screening was messed up.
  11. I have been miserable about keeping up with the technology any more, so I appreciate the insight. Guess I'll have a couple of bucks left over, then. Thanks!
  12. Another wrinkle, I just came into a couple hundred extra bucks which puts the Samsung NU8000 within reach. Is it worth looking at, or keep the 200 bones for something else and stick with the TCL/Vizio?
  13. Fair enough, I think they only gave the TCL the edge due to the higher price of the P-Series at the time, though. Seems like either set is going to be a pretty good buy for the price-point I'm looking at. If I didn't already have a Roku Ultra, the TCL would be a slam dunk. Guess I'll make a trip to Best Buy and look at them in person. Thanks for the input, my friend. 🤜🤛
  14. rtings.com puts the P-Series ahead of the 65R215/217 and they're about the same price. https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/compare/tcl-r617-vs-vizio-p-series-2018/613/625

    For me it was locking up and crashing back to the Xbox dashboard.
  16. Well, I'm like 99% sure I'm getting an Xbox One X for Christmas, so I'd like to have a set fairly soon. How soon do you think the X900F would drop?
  17. Okay, so I've (FINALLY) got around $1000 socked away for a 4K TV. There's a couple on Rtings.com that look pretty good for 65" 4K HDR (TCL and the Vizio P Series.) Anyone know if I'm better served trying to pick one up in the Before-Christmas crush or should I wait for the After-Christmas sales? Looking to buy either at Best Buy or Costco locally, or Amazon online (unless someone has better suggestions for an online retailer?) Thanks in advance, kids. You're the greatest!

    That's strange. Like I said over on ResetERA, I was having crash problems this morning due to some mystery weight added to my Stash. When I check it this morning it was 646/600 and I'm certain it wasn't like that when I logged out. While I was trying to pull stuff out of the box the game would lock up and close, even doing it once after I'd gotten the weight down under 600. I couldn't test any more because I had to leave for work. I'll fiddle with it more when I get home tonight. Still concerned about what suddenly made the weight in my Stash jump up like that...

    Oh, yay! It doesn't take forever to draw in my CAMP when I log in anymore, and the animations for going into crafting mode are much smoother. Awesome update so far!

    Excellent! Yeah, working around small boulders and stuff could get a little frustrating when trying to expand.

    I saw the console versions were going to be down today for maintenance. Rolling out the patch that PC users got on Tuesday? I love the option of picking a different World if you log into one that has a CAMP overlapping yours. I had a stretch where I had to move 3 times in two days. Fortunately I found a place that's better secluded because I haven't had to move in over a week.

    Still enjoying the hell out of this, playing almost every day for at least a little while. Got hit by a nasty bug last night that made me very frowny, though. Doing the "Feed the People" quest, I was dumping ingredients into the hopper and suddenly while I was mashing the button, my left leg armor appeared in the transaction window and I dropped it into the hopper, never to be seen again. It was a good piece, too. I see on the interwebs this has been a problem for awhile, I wonder if it'll get patched... My left leg is naked.
  23. I'm not going to say anything more than I'll definitely be pre-ordering this...
  24. Same. I’ve never been really into fighting games in general.
  25. I just realized that answering my question likely breaks the NDA, so never mind. I’ll see for myself tomorrow. 🙂
