      Resident Evil Village cleared. It was really a modern take of RE4. Very satisfying -- in level design and gameplay.

        My wife bought a PS5 to play RE Biohazard. We enjoyed some older versions on a borrowed PS3 years ago. Now our TV is so big that playing gave her motion sickness. She sold the PS5.

        @penguins I think with the newer engine, and increased moving speed (over RE7), the experience will be a lot better than RE4. But the point is we can't still side step -- we need to choose to either run away wo seeing enemies or take time to aim them. Sometimes it feels like the crux of this genre is to leave enough stress to players lol.

        @gixxerwimp Isn't buying her a smaller screen for ps5 only more productive?

        We have a smaller screen in the bedroom, but she'd rather not play there and nowhere to put the PS5 (small Asian-size apartment). Better for me as my monopoly over the living room continues ... hehe

        It is impossible to do an accurate comparison between the 650 and 600 without using the exact same earpads on both given how much the earpads impact FR. Its very annoying to see these kind of comparisons when they dont reveal how worn the earpads are.

        So far it does feel likes dark fantasy adventure, rather than survival horror.

        I'd just make sure this. I am not particularly upset with long essay per se. But from my experience (and specifically in my writing process), too many words are caused by (1) redundant statements (int+ext) and (2) lack of control/flow/focus..

        So when facing long reviews, I used to skim or rush to tldr or wrap up parts unless there are great themes or overarching narrative.

        It is a great attitude to take, ironic given that the J2 spanks a good chunk of the measurements r all that matters crowds dacs measurement wise :). Even managed to get rid of the ess hump that took the dacs being pushed by them so long to overcome.

        Running the dac in current mode is interesting as well, I wonder what difference that makes.

        The flow quite makes sense to me too. Ethan (survival horror) -> Chris (souped up doom3 with DS3) -> Joe (hella fun puncher). I didn't like how Amnesia or Outlast ended, but RE7 as a whole was truly an engaging experience.

        I just hope you appreciate the danger in handling these things together. I hear they're like super magnets... get them too close, and there's a 6-9khz shock-wave right before they shoot into each other and explode in an opaque blot of flechettes. Might as well be dropping the top on a nuclear reactor!

        That's correct on me not finding SW51 duller or murkier than Erish. Were you using stock tubes on SW51?

        I think I mainly used the stock ones. I got another pair of tubes from the owner, but just heard a couple of times before returning the unit. I generally stick to stock tubes for loaners as I believe they were chosen to sound in a specific way designer/developer/builder intended.
