In case you were wondering, Star Wars Squadrons is really great. The graphics are amazing and the controls are fantastic. They did a great job with how the ships control in zero G and you get to play as the Empire or the Rebels and can (somewhat) customize your character and ship. Also there is VR on Playstation and PC.

I haven't purchased a Star Wars game since KOTOR 2 so this is pretty monumental to have such a good single-player Star Wars game. It doesn't appear to be full of microtransactions and other garbage.i highly recommend it.

It's going to very difficult waiting another year for this. I am tempted to go for the early access preview. But I think it will be more rewarding to wait for the full game. Hopefully they do an Xbox Series X version, since my PC is rapidly becoming outdated.

I'm not too onto basketball. But this makes me very excited for the new consoles and PC video cards. CG is indiscernible form reality now, amd video games are catching up.

Geek Out!



Incredible what Consumer hardware can do in realtime now....

It was only around thirty years ago that affordable hardware could spin only a handful of polygons on screen at a time...

Anyone have a Commadore Amiga?

@organisys holy f*ck that is mad! I did not really believe the hype about ray tracing originally but as games catch up it sure looks impressive. Interested to see how the new consoles fair on average against PC

I think you will see roughly level pegging for a while, even if some of the PC hardware on paper is superior, partly for commercial reasons.

As time goes on (and the console hardware is effectively frozen in time, and PC not) the PC side will improve, (but this will of course cost the PC owner in upgrades), having said that Games Houses will of course learn how to squeeze more from the constraints of the consoles.

Arguably Photorealistic Realtime Raytracing on commodity hardware has been the holy-grail of the Industry for 30+ years.

I love squadrons!  Reminds me of the good old days playing X-wing and Tie Fighter.  It has very similar controls, which makes it easier for me at least, still a ton of buttons to memorize again.

Anyone on here play any Borderlands?

Are there any Pinball heads as well?
Snowboards, Basses, Pinballs

did anyone here managed to get a ps5 or series X?


@AdamJ you should see the comparison of Miles Morales:Spiderman in this video on the ps5, about 6:00 onwards

@louisbosco That looks crazy! I half-heartedly looked at getting one but as I am sure you're aware, there is zero stock for any. Besides I don't really game much anymore so saved myself four hundred quid  :D
