    Was I bullied in this game?

    I was playing Among Us on my mobile I felt like I was bullied in the game. At first it was a joke but as it went on I felt sad and insulted. A few people were just blaming me for no reason and insulting me like I hate you and your parents and that i'm dumb and other insults. Everyone was against me and laughing at me. I felt real down and insulted. It got to the point that I was just a toy. I feel kinda depressed.

    Will ps5 look any better on my tv?

    Favourite answer:

    Compared to the ps4. Yes. Compared to a 4K tv, no. 

    The ps5 looks better on a 4K tv. It can be played on an 8k tv but I doubt that many people have an 8k tv. 

    If you have a 1080p tv, you just won’t see as detailed as you would on a 4K. On a 1080p, some images might be blurred such as a crack on the cement or rain drops. On a 4K, those things become clearer.

    Xbox Game Bar replacement?

    I want to screen record and Xbox Game Bar was working perfectly for what I need. Just capture the screen and audio and save it. I don't need any fancy editing or anything. I just want to quickly record my screen and have it save to my computer with little hassle. Xbox Game Bar crapped out and it won't launch and customer service doesn't know how to fix it. A couple ones I've tried recorded really choppy and slowed down my laptop.

    What are you going to buy. New PS5 or the New Xbox X/S and why?

    Favourite answer:

    Xbox Series X, because I managed to snag one of those preorders and not a PS5. I'll get a PS5 eventually, when they're easier to get ahold of.

    How backwards combatable will the PS5 and Xbox Series X be?

    Is it just select games? The pervious generation? Or will they be able to play games from any generation?

    All i want to do is turn on my tv and play video games with a controler (no console) Is this possible?

    Favourite answer:

    Well. the difference between a game and a movie is that the movie is just a rote streaming file, and a game is actually a computer program. So a game requires branching instructions to be evaluated and executed, which is what a computer's core CPU does, and GPU to interpret the graphic coded instructions into a video source. Smart TV's obviously contain lots of graphic processing ability, connecivity solutions, so on,but not much code execution CPU Based logic ability. if there was a sufficient computer built into the tv, then yes, you could load in a game program from any storage source, like a disc, or a thumb drive and the built in computer could run the program, if the computer's operating system code was compatible. Small computer CPU's and single board computers are becoming cheaper and game consoles that have a TV screen built in have passed through the marketplace from time to time. They were unpopular because of the cost, and the fact that most people already have a front room TV, and felt no need to buy another just because it had a gameboy built into it. Not sure about remote controllers. Wireless mice are available, possibly aftermarket game controllers, you would have to look. I doubt, even were it made available  that people would want to pay the price for a whole computer on board the game  thumbdrive everytime they bought a  game cartridge though. A program, like a game, requires the computer to run and interpret it, which is what a console really is, a computer.

    will steam shut down one day or in the near future? i heard i do not really "own" my games but just the liscence to them?

    Favourite answer:

    No.

    If the company that owned the name ever got in to financial difficulties, I'd expect one of the international retailers to buy it out to keep things running.

    Steam is essential for many smaller game makers to sell games.

    It makes a small profit on every game bought through it, so has no reason to stop doing that.

    Also, if the Steam service shut down so peoples games could no longer start, it would cost the industry in general billions in compensation - 

    eg. here in the UK, consumer laws require things to be "fit for purpose" for six years from purchase.

    That means people could demand refunds from the sellers for all games bought within the last six years. In other parts of Europe it may be as low as two years [that's the legal minimum for any EU warranty], but it's still a vast amount of money.

    It would be cheaper for big games sellers to keep the service running, than allow it to stop!

    I spilled some beverage on cables and plugs? Is it a danger?

    Favourite answer:

    There is no "danger" at all, even if the cables and connectors are fully wet.

    The voltages and currents involved in data transfer are quite low

    and cannot develop perceivable heat.

    The main problem is the damage done to copper by phosphoric acid.

    It is nearly instantaneous and it is absolutely irreversible.

    Any cable that does not work after that spill should be replaced.

    I'm trying to find a name for this thing that Google cant understand.?

    It's a green flat board looking thing that goes into devices like remotes, game controllers, computers, etc to make them work. And after that Im trying to find out how to find if there is any damage done to them physically. Whether it be water damage or something cut. I'm trying to look into a Joy-con and I may just get a replacement part if its just the part that's the problem but if its just green part thing being broken I may just buy a whole new joy-con. Help? [Pic incase I'm not specific enough.
