  1. Yep, you're absolutely right. I actually always buy all major consoles from each company (So right now, in addition to PC, I have a PS4, Switch, and Xbox One). And as you've suggested, I've basically just used the PS4 and Switch as exclusives platforms. I definitely will be reconsidering purchasing the next xbox, as the xbox one did very little for me this gen (unless Halo Ultimate can remedy that, but I doubt it). The exciting part of PC gaming (for me) when a new console gen rolls around is that the multi-plats also start to look a lot better (as you've mentioned). Usually near the end of console cycles, games on PC just look like "more polished" console equivalents, regardless of how much hardware you throw at the problem. For example, right now with a GTX 1080 Ti, I can run almost every game at ultra settings at 5120 x 1440 (just shy of 4k) at 80+ frames per second. Once the next gen rolls around, I imagine this will no longer be the case since the overall fidelity of textures and lighting is improved across the board for consoles as well. Seeing what *those* games will look like on PC excites me, and hopefully new GPUs come out to keep up. Sadly, there's very few actual PC exclusives I feel that take advantage of PC hardware. The closest I can think of is Star Citizen, which we can barely call a finished game at this point Lastly, I think console devs will never shoot for 60 fps outside of fps games. I feel as though they will always try to pump out the most glamorous graphics to sell the title, sacrificing frame rate in the process.
  2. I think my younger self would have been super hyped about the next generation of consoles. However, having been playing primarily on PC for the past few years (on a doublewide 32:9 monitor at that), I just can't muster enough excitement. At minimum, hopefully this will see the games coming to PC get a graphics boost as well.
  3. Honestly looks absurdly good. Might have to grab one but it's a big amount to swallow. Also, I imagine I would be waaaay to afraid to transform to battroid mode, which ruins a bit of the fun. Decisions, decisions....
  4. Feel like they've really milked 00 for metal build. I hope it's at least something other than a Sestuna suit derivative (feel like they've basically done all of them at this point too). As for GFFMC, I hope they stick with UC suits. Feel like the GP-01 or RX-79[G] has been begging for one.
  5. Have we even seen the funnels mounted to the Nu? I feel like they're not worth the absurd asking price if you can't even attach them to the figure itself...
  6. Shameless plug, but NY refused to refund an extra DX VF-1A Max that I ordered. It’s my fault for jumping the gun, but alas what can you do. Some costs have come up that I need to address so I’m pre-selling it at a loss to me in the For Sale section. Please take a look if you’re on the hunt for one.
  7. I'm honestly quite shocked how little love the Justice gets when stuff like Astrays get pumped out in every single line. Heck, they're even doing a remake of the Freedom before the Justice
  8. I'm so glad G Gundam is finally getting some attention. I low-key wish it was Shining gundam instead, but I'll take what I can get!
  9. I feel the metal build design, for whatever reason, works better with Unit 2, but I'm personally more attached to the iconic unit 1 so I had to go with that.
  10. I’m kind of scared this is going to be Arcadia’s last hoorah (and I really hope it isn’t). Seems like things have slowed down on their end. It would be a shame if they had to stop after effectively engineering the basis of modern macross toys (during the Yamato years). Amazing to think how far things have come from the Masterpiece Veritechs that got me into collecting (and how panned those were)
  11. I went ahead and pre-ordered one from HLJ. Missed out on the Yamato offerings back in the day cause I was too young to afford them. Don't want to make the same mistake now.
  12. Went ahead and pre-ordered the Max 1A on NY. Want to have at least one of these in my collection, but man, $280 is a lot to stomach
  13. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-25-the-human-cost-of-red-dead-redemption-2 While I realize game development "crunches" are pretty standard affair, Rockstar seems to one of the worst. I bought and will likely enjoy RDR2, but I definitely won't be putting Rockstar on any pedestals. I'm in med school, and surgeons often put in >80 hours a week, but they also get compensated with salaries that exceed half a million dollars a year. To be worked to the bone like this without adequate compensation, regardless of how much you love the job, sounds malignant.
  14. I'd be so very on board with a MB Justice or GP-01, but y'all know it's gonna be something nobody wanted
