Elgato Game Capture devices

Just got these in the mail and already starting to figure out the cards

Elgato-CaptureCards.jpg

just ordered a new capture setup

Just placed the order for a new capture setup to replace the defective hdpvr2 that hauppauge refuses to do any support for. Expect the review of the product soon, just waiting for the new cards (yes 2!) to arrive and for me to have the funds to do the final part of the video (I estimate it will cost around $150). It will take some time for me to have the money spare to use for the video (and location fees) but it will be very worth it.

Expect pictures and videos of the new devices

This tech is a joke, if you get him just hang up and try for someone else

He literally told me something was wrong because he forgot to scroll down and thought it was spaces

No Playtonic support from me

I have asked now 10 times for playtonic to issue me a refund on my kickstarter funds and they have yet to respond to a single one. I will not be buying any games they release and will be contacting my bank to have them do a chargeback. I will never again give these clowns any money for games.

Coming from someone who has bought 3 copies of conker bad fur day on n64 (keep getting stolen from me), conker pocket tales on gameboy color, both n64 banjo kazooie games, kameo elements of power on xbox360, banjo kazooie nuts & bolts on xbox360, rare replay on xbox one. Plus the many Nintendo properties (donkey kong country, etc), the nes games they did (Nightmare on elm street), etc to see a company made up from many of the people who worked on so many games I loved growing up turn to be like this. I can no longer support them and will use those future funds that would have been for playtonic games towards other companies that will actually respond back.

GoDaddy Web Hosting

If you are looking to use Godaddy for your web host, don’t they have screwed me over now three times.

Video Game Preservation

I am getting further into preservation of video games, if you have any broken game consoles, controllers, etc. Please let me know.

Things I am always looking for

  • Boxes
  • Displays
  • Demos
  • Games (working or not)
  • Kiosks
  • Magazines & Books
  • Manuals
  • Posters
  • Standees

If you have any of these items and want to make sure they go to a someone that will take care of them and not just sell them on ebay let me know they will be part of the collection for a very very long time.

Was the Nintendo Switch rushed?

The Nintendo Switch system was released just recently on March 3, 2017. Numerous people have been reporting multiple issues dealing with the system already. The dock is scratching the screens, if you apply a skin to the system or controllers the glue eats into the material of the casing, the left JoyCon controller looses sync with the system. Now it was found out that a wifi signal bug is causing frame rate drops in the games.

Personally I do think the reason Nintendo was so secretive about the details on the system was because they was still developing the features they wanted on the system. I also think the switch is more a upgraded Wii U, yes I know system specs etc are way different (stronger) but I fell many of the games we are seeing released such as Zelda Breath of the Wild was started off as a Wii U developed title and then ported over to the switch.
