What class are you racing in Wipeout? Are you crushing Phantom class yet?

You and me both. I wish it was possible to eliminate that lag, but apparently the TV manufacturers won't budge until enough consumers begin to vote with their wallets, which unfortunately, will never happen. The companies making the screens refuse to use better quality components and it's too bad, because it could be easily remedied. :bang:

Here is a killer solution for NES gaming on a HDTV, if you're into Retro Gaming.

sorry dude, got distracted and bought Firewatch on the Steam sale and going to Grillstock. I shall post once I've played it and, knowing Limbo, experienced some kind of fucked up desolate isolation. Perfect comedown fodder.

Sorry, I'm still not following. The Internet has been around since the 90's which was still the age of CRT monitors, which have little discernible lag if any at all (mathematically yes, but it is not perceptible like current LCD and Plasma monitors). Don't worry about, thanks for attempting to clarify.

Picked up Horizon Zero Dawn last Friday. What a game. Could not put it down.

Truly the top game of the year hands down.

youll spend the first 300 hours pretending youre a dhl/ups/yodel driver, except in space, and with some shitty lazers/cannons that you cant really improve until youve done the equivalent of the manchester argos to sydney run :roll: :lol:
