And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

Glad to see the PS4 BC. I really hope it is also PS3/2/1 BC compatable.

I would also love some uprezzing for PS1 and 2 games. But I seriously doubt that'll be a thing.

I can understand lacking PS3 compatibility, even PS2 for that matter.  But there is ZERO reason I shouldn't be able to play my digital PSOne or PSP titles on the system, not with what home-brew people have been able to accomplish on platforms a fraction of the power of the PS4, much less what the PS5 should be able to do.  And that includes uprezzing and similar features to make the games look better.

If the PS3 and PS4 could emulate PS2 with little to no problem *proved by hackers* there is no reason the PS5 shouldn't be able to handle it.

Because heaven forbid a company should learn from their mistakes and simply do better the next time. If they'd simply used the NTSC versions of games, that alone would've made the PS1 classic more popular. If they'd been more careful in their game choice, they could've had an absolute hit.

I don't care so much about backwards compatibility. I mean, it's nice to have those options, but I already have a PS2, 3 and 4. So my bases are already covered. What I would like though would to have PSP games on the PSN network. I would love to give Crisis Core and Dissidia Duodecim another try.

Watch them not even put an optical drive in it at all, making it only "backward compatible" with games you bought digitally.

I was thinking of upgrading to a ps4 pro..   I assume the 5 will be native 4k and I should probably wait for that instead?

If you want to wait another two years and pay a bit more than go ahead. Otherwise, just get a PS4 pro.

So this seems like a good place to ask....

 

I kind of want a PS4. With the PS5 coming next year or in 2021 - which PS4 is the more "worth it" console to get?

 

I don't have a 4K TV (yet).

 

Is it worth shelling out for the Pro at this point?

I don't have a Pro. From what I've heard though, the specs are supposed to make games run slightly better even if you don't have 4K. That said though, if all you're looking for is something to hold you over for a couple years until the PS5 comes out, I'd still advise getting the cheaper version. It still plays the same games and I've never had a problem running anything on my base PS4.

Well you have a couple of options:

 

1. Go get a PS4 Pro and a TCL UHD TV. You can get a 55" 4K Smart TV with HDR for $350 or less these days, so I would advise picking one of those up. We got one for my mom last year and it is amazing.

 

2. Get a regular PS4. I have the regular Star Wars Theme PS4, and it works pretty well on my 4K UHD TV. I haven't tried it on my 1080ps TVs but I imagine it would be nice on them too.

 

3. Wait two years and buy a new TV and a PS5.

The Pro does offer broad overhead performance improvements.  But a bulk of its benefits are on higher resolution TVs.

 

I figure it's at least worth waiting until the fall to learn any details of the new device, and the Pro will probably see price reductions in the holiday season as well.

Yeah, like I said in (I think) the Fallout 76 thread, my gaming TV is an ancient 720p set. Pre-LED, HDR, and all that jazz. It's getting updated (thanks for that TV rec Predaking!) - I just haven't decided when. Probably sooner, rather than later, since low res screens have been bothering my eyes lately.

 

I kind of don't want to get a PS4 Pro, since the PS5 is coming and I'm 80% certain I'm going to get one of those, and paying for a Pro right now with a replacement on the way just bugs me. But I'm also leaning towards doing anyway. Maybe.

 

If I didn't need a TV upgrade, I'd just get the regular PS4 and be happy until the PS5 comes out.
