The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Nintendo Switch

So far so good! No bugs, no crashes and no issues whatsoever!!¬† I have yet to receive a crash screen on this game and have several hours on it so far…

While this isn’t the fully remastered version¬† I had for my PS4, it’s still beautiful on both docked and handheld modes.. the graphics are still improved over the original and land in between that and the remastered versions.. it controls very well and seems to perform better than the new remastered versions.. I love the Zelda themed clothing and weapons which just adds a very nice touch to this game..

Yes this is Skyrim, it’s been out for years but now can be played on the go without dragging a laptop with you. It holds up well to the newer versions that are out and about as well.. another great port by Bethesda

Update:  Now over 8 hours into the game and have had 0 crashes! The only bugs I have experienced are bugs that have been in Skyrim for YEARS

NBA 2k18 Nintendo Switch!

Great Graphics (both on and off the court), but I do agree that some of the cut scenes seem out of sync.. This seems like an issue that can be patched.. I am surprised how well 2K was able to push the graphics on this! For a handheld the graphics are next gen. On TV mode, the graphics are still good and somewhere in between last gen and this gen so by no means are they bad!! Controls seem to be fine and the game overall is fun!

I purchased this for portable play and I am impressed with it! I have more time to play portable and want to support third parties on the Switch hoping for more GREAT 3rd party games to go along with Nintendo. I want third party games for on the go!

Cons
1.) File Size – Around 30GBs total. 25ish on the SD card and 5 on system memory.. To me this isn’t an issue
2.) Some cut scenes seem out of sync but nothing major

Pros
1.) Graphics – For a portable, they are AMAZING!! For TV mode they are in between last gen and this gen (in between Xbox 360 and Xbox 1 or PS3 and PS4) so still pretty good! I wasn’t expecting PS4 graphics out of this and am very happy with what I received

2.) Fun

3.) Career Mode is GREAT – I am not much of a sports fan but wanted to support this game and I am having a blast in career mode!! Nice story, fun gameplay, and easy to pickup and learn

4.) PORTABLE – I have more time to play games on the go.. Portable is the way to go for me!

Overall: I am happy with this game and it works very well for what I wanted.. A portable game that is fun!

Update: After 10 hours in the game I am very happy still!! Career mode rocks, games are GREAT, multiplayer works wonderfully!! No issues with players disappearing or anything!

Tip: My Bonus was emailed to me after my purchase from Amazon.. You redeem your bonus in game and not in the Nintendo shop!

Steam Link

I got this for $15 during the Steam Summer sale and it is well worth that! I only have access to setting this up via a WiFi connection, and while that is not ideal for all games, it is working fine on the games I am using it for.. Keep in mind, this does NOT run games.. it streams them from your computer! If your computer is slow with games, this probably won’t work very well..

I am using it to play the following games and types of games without any issues

1.) Older PC games
2.) Graphic Novels (Anime, Life is Strange, that type of stuff)
3.) Older XBox Games (Fabel Anniversary, Half Life, Games like that)

For those games it works GREAT over WiFi! I am also playing some newer games with it, without any issues but I do turn graphics down on those games so it streams better..

I also have it set at 720P which helps streaming over WiFi

Keep in mind, I am using a very high quality 5ghz router which helps the streaming significantly..

Pros
1.) Very easy setup! Basically, when I plugged it in, and sign into my network it found my games and my computer.. super easy!

2.) Works very well with the steam controller!

3.) Includes everything you need (HDMI, Cat5, Power Adapter)

4.) Works well with steam controller and Bluetooth controller’s (keep in mind, a controller is not included)

Tips
1.) Some games on steam aren’t designed to use with controllers.. I find those games sometimes have issues using steam link.. basically I lost sync with my controller at times.. This doesn’t happen on games that are designed to work with controllers

2.) While a wired network is probably best, a high quality wireless network works fine on most games

Overall: I never wanted to pay full price for this, knowing I didn’t have good access to a wired network, but for the price I paid, I am very happy with it! It’s working well for my needs, my games, and my setup.. With that being said, knowing it works for me, I’d happily pay full price for this.

NEXGADGET Video Projector, GP80 Series 1800 Lumens LCD Mini Projector, Multimedia Home Theater Video Projector Support 1080P HDMI USB SD Card VGA AV for Home Cinema Theater Video Games Movie Night

Short Review: Excellent Video Projector, full of features and offers a very bright bulb!! Great for on the road presentations and just winding down in the hotel playing games at night!! Can even be used at home!

Pros
1.) Bright Bulb – Bulb brightness, for me, makes the picture look MUCH BETTER than other cheap projectors!!

2.) Very CLEAR and SHARP on Videos!

3.) VERY CLEAR AND SHARP on power point presentations

4.) Built in speaker is fine (If you plan on showing videos to larger groups, you might want a larger speaker to plug into this)

5.) Easy to navigate menus

6.) Great Picture Size Range From about 35 inches to over 135 inches.. I found the BEST RANGE to be in the 75 – 85 inch range if you want the BEST picture!! But it does go much larger and can go much smaller

7.) Plenty of hookups!!

8.) Doesn’t get very hot like a lot of other projectors do!

Uses
1.) Do you travel and have to show presentations? I do and a lot of times I cant expect my venue to have a projector.. I really hate carrying super large projectors with me.. This is NICE AND PORTABLE!!

2.) Do you travel and hate how hotels wont allow you to plug things into their TVs (Some allow this and some don’t).. Well just ignore their tv and plug your game system into this!

3.) Just want an inexpensive home entertainment system? This is GREAT FOR THAT!

Overall: Great projector! I highly recommend this, it works very well!
