With Steam's big picture mode, it's fairly easy to play on the big screen. Not as intuitive as consoles, but it's getting there. PC navigation only using gamepad would be a god-send for living room setups. 

 

There's this app on steam called Controller Companion, which I use occasionally. Though far from perfect, it's still pretty decent (and cheap) for PC navigation.

Totally. Both XSX and PS5 make more sense now than they ever did in the past. You are looking at a Ryzen 3600 + RTX 2060/2070 combination if you want to match the console specs and these two alone will easily set you back by 70-80k.

Almost matches my config. R5 3600 + RTX 2070 Super with an unnecessary 32GB (16x2) DDR4 3200MHz RAM :P

You can go for an ITX build to reduce the footprint. There are ways to building a small PC that can roughly match the footprint of a PS5 and still be way more powerful. But you'll have to shell a decent amount on cooling and the right case. I am not a big fan of laptops for gaming because of thermal constraints, throttling and non upgradeability of parts.

By that logic, a PC is the only gaming machine that you'd ever need. It's your preference, and others have their own. This is just baiting. 

 

Yes it's potato, but the UI is getting an upgrade with the new steam deck release supposedly

Only flaws now is that the BP UI looks dated and is very slow.

With laptops these days becoming more powerful and cheaper. One can go for a good gaming laptop to save space. Laptops around 1L can run almost all games at high settings.

My current laptop which has 1050Ti can run pre 2018 games at high to ultra and recent games at mid settings at more around 30-60 fps which is already better than consoles. Imagine a 3060 or 3070 laptop.

Im loving my Victus which got at real good price. Max 60fps in every game.

 

RTX 3060 laptop is quite good. Absolutely amazing job by Nvidia with RTX series in general

WTF.

 

I thought it would be chainsaw attack.

 

That thing sucks.

I ran around @quixote_1989 reloading my gun instead of chainsawing him because I confused my bumpers up 😂

 

Gears MP is good fun though. We discovered a Dodgeball mode after you dropped off I think. Super quick and intense.

 

Yes Dodgeball is intense and tight, puts pressure on team mates to survive, Great climax yesterday from you on recovery..

I still don't know how to chainsaw though. :ranting:


lol, I did like 5-10 chainsaws 

 

once, I did 2 back-to-back chainsaws and then immediately, CJ chainsawed me - a triple chainsaw. I thought I captured the clip but not found later 😢

 

I also won 2 chainsaw battles with Skd  I think, B mashing 😂

Have to figure out how to use the shotgun better.

 

@Vaibhavp & Nator_2 were killer with it, turn around the corner and get blown to bits.

He and overlord just roam around the map looking to chainsaw dudes.

 

They don't even care if you have shotgun equipped.

I think I chainsaw-d you a couple of times before you started pulling out the shotgun 😂

 

It's quite satisfying, have to agree.
