Anybody get anything? Was thinking about getting a new laptop and a dashboard and rear view camera for the car, but I'm gonna hold out on the former, even when there is
good deals on Alienware laptops for a grand (Don't care about gpc gaming, but best bang for buck).

There is a ton of games on sale too, and some eshop coins of mine are expiring next month, but I just bought ringfit and Pokemon Shield this month already on switch.

Note to self. Still have one voucher left on eshop, Amazon gift card money too.

A small gas stove for about 150Q or 20USD.

Probrably a small set of pots and pans.

Tech wise I might buy a newer phone. I paid about 54 USD for my current one. While it works it is a little slow and the 480P screen can be finnicky and unresponsive at times.

Im looking at either the Samsung A10 or A30. The A10 is more affordable but the A30 has more ram but its about double thr price.

2000Q vs 1000Q ergo 250USD vs 130 USD.

For now I will wait until my current guatemalan phone poops out.

I picked up Red Dead Redemption II ($20), God of War ($15), Devil May Cry 5 ($20) all for PS4, and a brand new gaming PC ($619). I wasn't planning on getting a new PC, but the specs and black Friday price were too good to pass on. Not the most powerful pre built PC, but it'll at least allow me to emulate more games past the PS1 era and further develop my own games.

I was pretty close to getting a new laptop, a gaming one at $1300, but decided against it. Think I will wait next year when Nvidia's 7nm ampere chips come out. I don't plan on heavy gaming either, but just best bang for my buck and wanting to try ray tracing games..

I did buy the mclassic cable from marsielle which I will be using on my switch. It's going to give a better image quality akin to anti aliasing and other post processing effects.

I didn't know something existed that gives the Switch better image quality.

My best friend bought a brand new PC to build and he got ray tracing. I'll let you know what I think of ray tracing down the road when he builds it and we take a look at it. We won't be using it to make games, but it's a nice feature to have. Honestly, I'm not really sure will be anything spectacular in terms of game making other than making a game look pretty.

I'm starting to wonder if VR is the future of games, and that frightens me. I don't want to work on VR games...

The mclassic works on other platforms too including retro and 64 to 360 era games. Nintendo is notorious for not using anti aliasing. Check out videos on youtube! I see some noticeable differences in breath of the wild, odyssey, xenoblade, link's awakening, pokemon lets go, pokemon shield, witcher 3 to name a few.

I'll take some pictures when I get it on pokemon shield and post here. It's 99 bucks though normally.

Tell your friend to test it on minecraft. It's on call of duty modern warfare (the reboot) and anothe game too. Minecraft is very noticable.

Hmm maybe with playstation 9, we'll be in the matrix. O_o

I am not getting anything this year likely video gaming wise for PS4/Switch. I sorta wanna snag some vidya when Steam does the Christmas sale or something. I own a gaming PC, but still have a soft spot for the Switch and PS4 occasionally. Even if it maybe not on a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale...was considering getting Luigi's Mansion 3.

Nothing this year. I've already got a ton of games that I haven't even touched, and my computer still works great. Plus, I'm a bit low on cash, right now.
