2021.09.28 07:28 tommygoinfast 85 inch with Dolby Vision + Dolby Atmos + Full Array Local Dimming?
Im currently looking to pick up an 85 inch set for my living room but I'm having a bit of trouble finding the right unit. I'd like a tv that has Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, local dimming, HDMI 2.1. I was looking at the Samsung QN90A until I saw it doesn't support Dolby Vision. The 85 inch LG C1 and Sony A90J are much too expensive. Any suggestions? Thanks!

2021.09.28 07:28 mujib_rewrite My Breakup Letter with Mihoyo's Genshin Impact
After spending hundreds of dollars in this game, I quit playing Genshin Impact. Frankly I am happy I did. It is a shame that I did this on the anniversary of your game, and I am writing this open letter to express my frustration.
I remember the first time I have heard of it from a friend. He advertised it to us group of friends on how it was good and it was worth trying. At first, I was hesitant. I heard it was some sort of an RPG Adventure and I just had enough about grinding in-game gears and rewards because it felt like an empty achievement. Nonetheless, I gave it a try.
In my first step into the gates of Teyvat, I was bewildered. I was immediately immersed in the story. I had a very hard time choosing whether I should save Aether or Lumine, and I felt despair as the unnamed god took my twin away. I immediately fell for the game’s charms - the anime graphics, amazing soundtrack, vast exploration, combat and battle, and the goal of the story which is to find my twin.
I have devoted a lot of my time playing the game to progress through the story. I found myself quickly reaching where the developers finished their unfinished game. I was hooked into the plot but the next episodes aren’t there yet. I explored other aspects of the game to keep myself occupied. I found the hidden chests, solved different puzzles, caught all the oculi, and pretty soon I reached the end of it. This is where I found the problem of the game.
First, I want to talk about how I found about characters. I understand you have to keep the player-base interested in the game. You presented different playable characters with different play-styles and different visual appeals to catch our fancy. But what I did not understand was how expensive they were to get. It would take me months to save up on Fates. The chances of me getting a character that appealed to me were ABYSMALLY low. A lot of players crunched the numbers of the probability of someone getting the desired character and it was really bad even with the pity system.
At first, I had embraced the fact that this is the nature of a gacha game. As this was my very first gacha, I fell for the trap. I spent hundreds of dollars just to reach my first few five-star characters. It felt great winning for the chances that I paid for, but looking back, it wasn’t worth it. I was lost in the conversion of our country’s currency to dollars to genesis crystals to primogems to fates to pity.
To surely get a 4-star character, you have to spend around 22 USD. For a 5-star character, you have to spend around 205 USD. These are rough estimates with some assumptions, but it shows how expensive the characters are, and if you want a SPECIFIC character, you have to spend much more because there is no guarantee of getting the character you wanted even if their rates are boosted.
Second, I want to talk about progressing the other game elements. To make a character strong, I have to equip them with a weapon. Getting a desired weapon is also rigged by the gacha element of the game. Some of the character’s skill kit is designed in a way that there are weapons that are useful for the character (and subsequently, there are weapons that will not be useful). And even if I get the desired character and weapon, I cannot level it up to maximum quickly because of the time-gated resin currency. I have to wait for weeks just to get my character’s level, talents, and weapon to its maximum. Even the rewards for domains bosses are dictated by probability. Resin flows at a very slow rate, and I have to allocate a specific time of my day to spend it. If I log in too soon, my resin isn’t replenished yet. If I logged in too late, my resin will have overflowed and capped.
I realized that you, Mihoyo, want me to dictate every day of my life to play Genshin Impact. I grew to hate the resin system. If I played any time I wished, I wouldn’t be advancing my character progress as much as if I played at the same time every day. Clearly your main market are your money-makers, us adults, who has the capacity to spend for your game. But as adults, we only have few hours in a day to spend recreationally. And if I spend all my recreational time just to play your game efficiently, I would grow to not enjoy it at all, which turned out to be the case.
Before, playing Genshin was my escape from my life of work. Now, it felt like it is working. Working my day to spend more for your rewards.
“You can enjoy Genshin as a F2P game and play for the exploration and story”
This is arguably true. The story line is free, but as soon as I finish the story and explored the region, there is no reason to dedicate more of my time on Genshin, unless I want to earn the playable characters.
“You don’t need more characters to play the game”
Untrue. The Spiral Abyss, which is the end-game content for Genshin, is tailored for the latest banner available. Meaning, If you don’t have the latest characters, you won’t clear this level. If you don’t have a character who could dish out damage or heal your allies, you won’t clear the level. How do I get these characters? There is no guarantee as getting them is gacha.
“You don’t need to spend to get characters”
I do get some substantial amount of primogems on explorations and events, but the banners are time limited and I could only earn a limited amount of fates and primoges at a certain amount of time. A F2P player is trapped in this pit and the only way out is to spend for the game.
“You should let Mihoyo know about your concerns as they listen to player feedback”
This is partially true. Mihoyo listens to the players and keep their ear out on the things that would get the player spend more money or time on the game, but not necessarily enjoy it.
“How do you know that Mihoyo is just manipulating the players to spend more time/money on the game? How can you say that your enjoyment is not their main concern?”
I know that there are developers and other people who made Genshin so that the players will enjoy the game. I could feel it by the complexity of the puzzles, the creativity of the terrain, the intensity of the soundtracks, the colors and designs of the environment, the story of the characters, the intricateness of their talents and skills, the game design, etc. A lot of people did very good in making it a beautiful game. But there is an ugly, exploitative part of Genshin that prey on your psychological vulnerability. In the same way that a casino exploits a person to keep the gambler inside the casino and feed his/her gambling addiction. I do not want a relationship where the person on the other side of the relationship is manipulating me. I want to enjoy the game because it is beautiful and because it genuinely wants me to enjoy the game.
“You’re just an entitled player who thinks you’re entitled to more good things”
I spend hundreds of days and hundreds of dollars on this game. I gave out real effort for rewards, but for me, the number of rewards I get for the amount of time I spent on this game is just not worth it. I don’t think I’m entitled to rewards, but I believe that my time and money is worth more than 0.5% chance of getting a five-star character that am grinding for.
What made me finally decide on quitting this game is the anniversary. By tradition, the reason why you’re holding out annual celebrations is to appreciate everything that has happened so far. I celebrate my birthday because I survived another year. I celebrate my anniversary with my special other because our relationship has stood against obstacles. And in this sense, Mihoyo is celebrating a year with us for still sticking as a player, for spreading the news that Genshin is a beautiful game.
So to thank us players, Mihoyo will be giving us 10 chances to win a 0.5% probability to wish on the current banner with the least amount of revenue so far. Not only that, here are some other anniversary rewards which is equivalent of half a day’s worth of resin. And for the people who spent hundreds of dollars for Genesis crystals, we will replenish the first-time-purchase bonus so that you could spend hundreds of dollars again.
If that is the message that Mihoyo is telling us this anniversary, then I have come to realize that my relationship with Mihoyo is actually toxic. If people are telling me that I should be greatful that Mihoyo is giving us something rather than nothing, then it’s like saying that I should be glad my girlfriend is giving me an occassional high-five rather than nothing after wishing for love and affection.
Goodbye, Genshin Impact. I truly hope that one day, you would abolish your resin system and rework your Gacha Mechanics. Even if your game elements are very beautiful and well designed, I cannot overlook the greedy, manipulating, abusive overlords that makes you implement these systems.
Until then, we shall be parting ways.

2021.09.28 07:28 elliebell49 I need some guidance.
Okay so I’m getting married next year. My soon to be husband used to have a forge but b/c he’s military we have to move around a lot and he essentially lost most of his blacksmithing/smithery? tools. I was thinking for a wedding present that I’d get him an anvil, from what I’ve looked into they seem I guess the most expensive tool? I just want to know what should I get him as the essential item(s) to start smithing again. Context he used to make hand held weapons if size/material matters :)

2021.09.28 07:27 Important-Customer-8 I can't add music to my public instagram account stories
Hello, hope you are all well.
I wanted to reach out to see if there was possibly any fix for why I can't add music to my Instagram story on my public account.
I have a private account as well and I can add music to my stories on that but I have noticed that the heart icon tab is on the top left on the private account and on the public it is on the bottom bar.
I suspect that maybe they are different versions somehow?
I have signed out and reinstalled the app multiple times and cannot find a fix.
If anyone could help, it would be incredibly appreciated.
Thank you all and have a great day.
