You still ought to properly calibrate it, tough.
Monitors (and TVs) tend to be horribly un-calibrated out-of-the-factory.

My experience is that gaming monitors are better calibrated out of the box because the audience is more demanding of quality. That's not to say you shouldn't re-calibrate it to suit your personal needs, but I generally don't want to connect a gaming device on my Samsung 40" television because the quality is worse. Also, television manufacturers seem to focus more on pure image quality and post-processing, because the response time and input lag is worse by default.

I only calibrate monitors if I have 2 monitors side by side and the colors look off. I don't really care otherwise

Dead Rising 4 is out now.
Xbone and Windows 10 only ??? WTD?
No Coop either.
And, from reviews, they removed a lot of what made it unique (although some of the things I didnt like for the 1st playthrough anyway, but was really cool for the 2nd playthrough).
Anyone played it? Any thoughts on it?

I haven't played it yet, but it is definitely on my radar. It's kind of funny, I just read an article the other day that was saying that Dead Rising 4 is a huge step down from the franchise. The author attributes that to eliminating timed events, escort missions, and limited saves. All I could think was... that sounds like a step in the right direction to me All of those "features" of the first Dead Rising games were simply awful, IMO. There is nothing worse than giving the player an open world environment to explore, and then stick them with an artificial timer that prevents them from actually exploring the world.

I really wanted to enjoy the earlier Dead Rising games, but those kind of limitations prevented me from enjoying them. Hearing that those awful design choices are gone makes me really excited to play this game. Because I love a good zombie game

Yeah, thats why I said 'with my 1st playthrough'.
On my 2nd playthrough, it was cool to try to get all the achievements (but, I also did it in coop, so it was easier).

I also think that the things they removed would make me like it more, but we will see (if I ever get to play it).

Hot damn, as a huge fan of Banjo Kazooie (I still play through it every 1-2 years), this new trailer for Yooka-Laylee looks wonderful. All my nostalgia sensors are buzzing. I can't wait for this one to come out.

I was a huge fan of Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie. Many good memories of those games with the music and the environments. I can still remember that old talking toilet in the haunted mansion and that chained mechanical shark like it was yesterday. Something just doesn't feel right about this game though, even if the development team is mostly the same. I still want a proper Banjo Threeie.

Well, I couldn't help myself, I pre-ordered the game. Since I know we will likely never get a true Banjo Kazooie sequel (and even if we do, it won't be by the same team), I am excited for something that at least is inspired by what made that game great. I love that they are including so many of the "quirks" from the original games, such as the speech bubbles with looping speech sounds. It probably won't be as great as BK, but the game definitely looks creative and I am excited!

I like your optimism. I might check it out when it's released but I won't get my hopes too high. I've already been blindsided by nostalgia too many times to fall for that trick again but hopefully the game really stands on its own.

Picked up Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for whopping -67% off (16,49 €). I didn't ask for this kind of deal.

Seeing that Yooka-Laylee is coming out for PC too massively increased my interest for that game. The world desperately needs good modern 3D platformers in general, though.

Wasnt interested in even looking at a trailer until you said platformer.
Checked out a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1gxLvbX3Ow
It reminds me a lot of Psychonauts.
Now I want it.


Edit:
Wow.
$40 is steep for a dev I have never heard of and graphics from an Android game.

It is being made by a few of the guys who worked at Rareware and made masterpieces like Donkey Kong Country. It's the spiritual successor to Banjo-Tooie and even the legendary David Wise is working on it, so they are hardly new guys on the scene. The graphics are cartoonish because that has sort of always been the style of Banjo-Kazooie and stuff like DK64. I'm weary of media that constantly caters to 90s nostalgia but I have a little more faith in this game, even if only for the soundtrack. There just better be Christmas and Halloween themed levels.

Winter sale deals are up on PSN store. Glad I waited before buying Uncharted 4, its price went down from 59.99 to 27.99 €

EDIT: Ratchet & Clank -52% off (16.45 €) for PS Plus owners too, WOOO *buys*

EDIT #2: Got Ape Escape 2 (9.99) despite lack of discount too, because it's fucking Ape Escape, HD remastered (and I wanna see the rest of the games make it there ). They should've really put HD in the title, I completely missed that it was even upscaled...

Yeah says "hd remastered" and 720p/1080p in the description, I believe it

EDIT: Playing atm, seems to be the same as emulated PS2, but at least it runs HD 60 fps with trophies. Seems to be the PAL version with crappy VAs tho

What a coincidence, Microsoft has their digital sale going on now too. Imagine that, Steam, Sony, and Microsoft all have their sales running concurrently

Since I don't PC game much anymore, my focus has been on the Microsoft sale. My purchases:
Firewatch (40% off) - $12
Tales from the Borderlands (67% off) - $6.50
The Walking Dead: Michonne (67% off) - $5

I really want to buy The Witness... but it's only 33% off. The price still feels too steep for me.
