I have almost no hype for the launch of PSVR. Even if VR is the real deal, the 1st gen will be rocky. I'll wait till the nausea factor is overcome, the resolution/graphical fidelity is improved, and they start making real games (instead of novelties that can only be played in short bursts).

RE: Need some advice/help or a cute picture of a cat
First of all, you have time to hit the reset button (I went to grad school in my 30s). I would suggest targeting an in demand job and pursuing the education to get it. Getting a career on track will help with the car, girlfriend, and probably some of the depression issues. If not, at least you'll have the money to pay for professional help (and for a career change down the road).
Maybe you could be a cameraman or someone working behind the scenes. I'm not saying you don't have what it takes to be a journalist, but jobs like this would be easier to get and would allow you keep the dream alive (get your foot in the door/make connections/better understand the industry).
RE: Travel - Chile
Wow some of those pictures are really cool! I'm a geologist and love seeing large scale evidence of glaciation like that. Was there any talk of how far they had retreated in the last few years (or decades)? Bringing up a map of Chile and I didn't realize how much of it was national parks. Is off season crazy cold? Is it kid friendly? You're making me want to plan a trip to South America
RE: I Need Help Selecting 1440p monitor from these choices
I haven't bought a monitor in a very long time so I'm pretty uninformed
I do know to take a very close look at the input lag if you get a tv (I don't think that this is as big deal with monitors). Also, people say that HDR is a bigger deal than 4k, but its still in its infancy and introduces some input lag.
I would personally get a 1080p now, save some money, and get a good 4kHDR set when the price comes down in a few years....but that LG you found looks pretty good.
RE: Is the Scorpio enough to make you switch mid generation?
Other posters are on point. Console gaming has a few advantages over PC; lower initial cost, accessibility, exclusives. MSs policy of releasing their exclusives on the PC as well as the xbone/scorpio wipes out exclusives. We don't know the scorpios specs or cost, but its sounding like it'll be quite powerful and expensive (making the initial cost of a PC look a lot better).
Maybe I'll get the scorpio...but it's certainly making me take a close look at building a PC. I'm also going to buy games digitally so they'll be playable on a PC if I end up getting one.
RE: PS4 Pro or new GPU for my gaming PC?
My vote (as a console gamer) would be for the pro. Having no idea how much of a jump the 1070 would provide, it seems like the pro would allow you to play games that you couldn't otherwise, and the 1070 would allow you to play what you already can with slightly better graphics....I guess the pro would allow you to jump on the VR train if it pans out.
Its kinda funny that you seem to be a graphics whore but don't care about HDR
RE: Why are so many PS4 Pro complaints just the fact that it isn't as powerful as a $2000 PC?
Yep I agree.
Unfortunately, people will grab a hold of any perceived weakness and trash anything that they can. The internet has created a culture of raining on parades that you just gotta ignore. People watching a compressed stream on their 1080p monitor and concluding that 4k hdr doesn't add anything is a perfect example.
