  1. Can anyone confirm if this has spiders/tarantulas in at all? My wife and daughter are properly terrified of them, to the extent we can’t watch nature programs etc. Internet is confusing as they definitely have them in the original ride but maybe not in the movie?
  2. Garlic breads a good shout. For anyone getting started I’d also recommend doing homemade “naan breads” with your dough instead of pizza. Basically just make a pizza base and don’t put anything on it. I made tandoori chicken in my Ooni the other night and had it as kebabs in homemade naan. Amazing.
  3. Yeah I absolutely loved this, and couldn’t really explain why. But I wasn’t bored for a second. It feels like it’s made with such care, and it flits between comedy, tension, drama, and overblown Marvel nonsense with ease. It’s fun.
  4. Just looking at the screenshots upthread it looks awesome too for such an old game.
  5. @CheekoMost AAA games these days use physically based rendering (PBR) to some degree, so yes, lights have broadly real world values and the lighting shaders work in a way that approximates physical behaviour of light. It’s a big job to get right. I would say PBR has been almost a revolution in how the industry builds content over the past decade. @ZOK pull yourself together man!
  6. HDR shouldn’t look that different to SDR, it’s just a tech change to allow things to go a bit brighter and represent some more colours. For most scenes the image should be broadly the same, but the centre of lightbulbs, explosions and specular reflections will be brighter. If you take a HDR image you can absolutely tonemap it to look comparable on SDR, just missing some highlights. Those highlights matter, and can certainly make an image look more vibrant and real, but the overall grade of the scene can be very similar. I think most of the time if games look significantly different it’s a bug.
  7. Anyone interested in how HDR works in video games from a proper in depth (including maths and code) view I really recommend this The first half is the background colour theory and the second half about implementing this is COD. Very little discussion of Rothko. This is my indirect way of saying COD probably looks good in hdr. Although I’m not 100% sure about on PC.
  8. This is completely hilarious
  9. Yeah it’s a shame this had to be the pathetically racist, misogynistic dated lowest common denominator shit that it is, because the performances are great and I really enjoyed it. It would be entirely possible to make a film like this that succeeded in all the ways this does, without the casual racism, and more than 2 female characters that are wafer thin gangsters moll and heroin chic tropes. Basically we should have more films that just have fun with really charismatic actors. But without the out of date toxic bullshit worldview.
  10. Albon 1.2s behind Max. And behind Gasly.
  11. “People won’t mind if you get it wrong but the animal kingdom will be FURIOUS”
  12. Uh oh... just catching up with the Paris coverage now, Imlach talking through the GC table: “Richie Porte, the patron saint of cycling misfortune” I like Richie Porte, but I imagine if he went to casino he would probably lose all his money and somehow contrive to lose a limb too...
  13. That’s a great read. I’ve got a real soft spot for David Millar. I don’t enjoy watching cycling as much if he’s not commenting. Similarly I think Gary Imlach is an absolutely brilliant anchor, he’s genuinely funny and dry with it. I’m going to really miss watching the ITV highlights every night.
