My soul is willing and ready. But my wallet is hesitant and trying to hide.

my wallet :cry:

I already replaced my broken screen in note2, bought xonar dg and CAL!

 

Now steam sale. wtf :lol:

post #15079 of 26107

Any suggestions on good buys?

 

I was always more of a console gamer so I've missed out on pretty much everything :P

 

Just got Counter Strike: Complete.... tempted to get Skyrim Legendary Edition.

Typically speaking, if a game shows up as a daily deal, that'll be the best sale price all sale long. However, I have twice in the past seen a game at 50% during a daily deal and then 66% as part of a flash sale in the past. But it's not all that common to see the flashes be cheaper than the dailies. Also, keep an eye on the flash and community choice sales. Sometimes some real gems can show up in those. That's how I track down good buys during the wallet shrinking Steam sales.

Based on what's on sale currently, I'd put my votes in for Bioshock Infinite, Hotline Miami, Scribblenauts and Don't Starve. All were quite fun for me. If nothing else, I recommend Hotline MIami. At $2.49 it's a heck of a deal.

And to keep this post headphone-esque, I quite enjoyed the sound track for Bioshock: Infinite. That said, last I saw it didn't support Dolby Digital Live or DTS. This may have changed since I last played it. Skyrim does support Dolby Digital.

It's hard trying to find some headphones for music / gaming that have comfortable (preferably velour) earpads that are deep / big enough for my ears but won't rest on my jaw, causing discomfort (Like the M-Audio Q40s and DT770 Pros did). Sound is important for gaming and music (Listen to a lot of EDM) but comfort is absolutely paramount. Budget around £150 GBP. Anyone help?

I thoroughly enjoy the Philips X1's for EDM and gaming.

They're quite expensive from what I've seen? I'm not sure about open headphones as I mainly game late on a night.

You said you had a budget of 150ish?

 

Converted the price of them on Amazon at the moment... about $260 = 170ish GBP.

 

So they might be a tad over your budget.

 

But yeah... they are open. Not too big of a deal unless there is someone literally sleeping next to you while you are gaming tongue.gif

I don't know where else to ask this so I figured I'd ask the dolby masters, here. I am trying to get a tablet so I can watch movies in HD and listen in DH (or any other virtual surround sound) on the go. I was looking at the kindle fire but how good is the built in surround sound processor it claims to have? If I was to get a different model and need a decoder... which would work? Are there tablets with a USB out for something like the U3?

 

I am open to all suggestions. I appreciate...

Never used a tablet, so I surely don't know what they're capable/not capable of doing, sound-wise.

Thanks, maybe others will know... hopefully

In the meantime, take a look at this and see if this sounds right to you. So the kindle automatically gives out surround sound without the need of a decoder?
