    As an update, I returned my Monoprice Zero-G Ultrawide due to it losing remote/button functionality any time it went to sleep. The ghosting and cheap build quality also bothered me (as did a lack of USB ports which helps with cable management on my desk). So I bit the bullet and got the Alienware 34" Oh baby, this is nice. Build quality on a whole different level. Some IPS glow but uniform and no worse than some Dell Ultrasharps I had prior. No backlight bleed, and contrast very close if not the same as the MVA panel on the Monoprice. No ghosting or color shift/light shimmer that the MVA panel had either. Haven't tried G-Sync as of yet. Overall, much happier with this monitor and I feel like it is worth the premium for me. Kind of related, I didn't like not having a second physical monitor so grabbed a $100 23" Acer from Costco. A stunning value for $100. IPS, 1920x1200, 75hz (got up to 85hz) refresh, Freesync, minimal bezels, and a VESA mount! I have it mounted above the Alienware and mostly use it to have Outlook and messaging apps always visible.

    I just hope its a proper port by at least centering the crosshair on the screen.

    I have rediscovered Wolfenstein Series.I finished the Old Blood, am halfway through The New Order and looking a for a good deal on the New Colossus. I saw yesterday the new YoungBlood coming with co-op. Soundtrack should be interesting!

    A great gameseries for a "tunnel" shooter, with fantastic sound design and great soundtrack and likeable characters.
    The quality between these games seems pretty consistent, so MachineGames has done a great job with it while expanding the world of Blazkowicz.

    @Poleepkwa I personally couldn't finish New Colossus, it felt like a very weird game with lots of SJW vibes. Old Blood and New Order were much better IMHO. Did yo play the old games? Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a lot of fun.

    I did play the originals, probably why I have been so impressed with these "reboots".

    Anyone here a Bloodborne fan? I played dark souls, but somehow missed this.

    Damn this is hard. I need my parry back!

    You will get the hang of it. It is far more forgiving with the gun parry timing then any of the souls games. Think of it as a faster more aggressiv Dark Souls 3 and you will do great in no time.

    @fraggler welcome to the AW 34" club!

    Until FALD HDR becomes affordable this is probably the highpoint of gaming screens, even though it's not perfect.

    I'm scared to move on.

    The hunters in the Old Hunter DLC are nuts. Probably I should finish the main game, then do the Old Hunter.

    True, Ludwig and Orphan are far more difficult than any of bosses in vanilla Bloodborne. Btw. Sekiro out in 4 days!

    Can wholeheartedly recommend Old Hunters DLC as well; amazing for a wide variety of reasons. Definitely how DLC SHOULD be done!

    Probably pretty niche and not helpful, but nowhere else to post this and internet searches are no help: If you just picked up an Analogue Mega SG, the firmware will not update if the system is hooked up to a Sega CD. You have to unhook them first. Figured it had to be something or defective after the third SD card.

    Just in case it helps someone here.

    Tied for even less useful. I could not get Master System games to work until I did the update. Everything works now

    I am some 8 hours into Forza Horizon 4. It really shows that real effort was put into this game to make it better than FH3. Early, but this might be like 9.0 - 9.5 out of 10. It is just so well polished, the driving physics are even better than FH3. Great job Turn 10.

    Anyone wondering if they can run it - this runs super smooth on a I5 3570k 4.2GHz 12GB DDR3 MSI 1060 6GB on an SSD drive. [Ultra/High with MSAA 4X]
