  1. Civilization VI

    Has anyone tried this on a compatible Mac? I'm tempted. Reviews are bad for those who don't have powerful-enough machines, of course, so was wondering if anyone here has given it a shot.
  2. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    So I tried both the digital version (iTunes via Apple TV 4K) and the UHD (via Oppo UDP-203) and with the Dolby Vision, I prefer the digital copy. The UHD is great, mind you, but I'm surprised by my preference for digital this time around! It's likely the Dolby Vision alone, but it really helps those dark scenes, of which there are many in this movie. Mind you, too, this was on a 2017 LG OLED. If I could take the sound from the UHD and the video from the Digital, I'd be a happy man. For 3 hours at least.
  3. Yeah, I get it, I suppose. Just surprised by the blind love for this. $70 for a chunk of cardboard that plays minigames is a tough pill for parents (or fans) to swallow.
  4. I don't get it, but that's just me. All of these kits are for sale in Japan - and have been - for years. They come in little boxes sold in magazine stands. You can even subscribe. I think you can buy them here in hobby shops. It's cute, I guess, but making it reliant on the Switch is clever marketing at best. Maybe fun for kids, I guess... but I guess what surprises me the most is the giant positive reaction to all of this as if it's something revolutionary. Call me a curmudgeon on this one, but... no.
  5. Philips Hue Wifi lights

    I'm suddenly unable to control my lights remotely - I have to be on the same wifi network - after upgrading to an iPhone X. It simply won't authorize when I'm remote. Not sure what's up - has anyone dealt with this? [edit: Move along. I figured it out. Sometimes just asking the question forces one to look it up in a different way.]
  6. I'll dig back into this once I come down from finishing Horizon.
  7. Huh. I'll have to try it again. I found it kinda clunky, but maybe I've been spoiled by Horizon and Witcher.
  8. Checking back in - don't notice any changes at all with the new firmware. Some say it does something with Atmos passthrough which I haven't tested yet. Something else about Game Mode - maybe undoing what they bunked last year?
  9. Yes, they still do that.
  10. I thought I saw Mrs. Lowry!!! Was that on purpose? Who else? Ooh I just looked it up - there's also the parking violation (27 B stroke 6).
  11. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Watched The Dark Tower this weekend. Dolby Vision + Atmos makes it a nice experience, and I didn't hate the movie despite its lukewarm reception. Definitely worth a spin.
  12. Hah, yes, that's a very fair comparison. At least AppleTV shows me what I'm in the middle of and what I've already watched, though. I know Xbox tries to do that, but it splays it among other crap they're trying to sell you.
