  1. So anyway, this is really good and more people should be watching it. But... (spoilers up to the end of Ep3)
  2. Yes, this looks amazing. It could pass for 60fps most of the time. More of this sort of thing please Sony.
  3. Nana! Nana! Nana! (Tora! Tora! Tora!)
  4. Goddamit OK... Akira Kurosawa's Nanjuro
  5. He was asked, but thought he was too old to be running round a field in the rain for three days!
  6. Followed by one of the retailers saying: “It’s the one word you don’t want to hear in relation to babies” Which is odd, as there’s at least two.
  7. This is a pretty decent price isn’t it? WD_BLACK SN850 1TB with heat sink for £120: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08PHSVW7K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_JRST98WFVJ2GMN021S4V?psc=1
  8. The level of detail and the amount of… everything… in this is absurd. About 50% of the NPCs seem to have an actual job that they appear to be doing properly. I stood and watched the ‘logging’ area next to the river by Barrenlight for about a minute last night, and let me tell you if I ever need a tree trunk cut in half, I’ll be giving those guys a call. They’re a credit to their profession. Same with the workers at the quarry, and the woman chopping vegetables in the Inn. It’s totally inconsequential to the rest of the game, but it was all animated perfectly. And judging by the screenshot above it even has accurately rendered seagull nostrils. (Which does make it seem odd that the trees still look a bit ‘early PS4 era’, but I’m guessing that’s the skeleton of the crossgen version peeking through)
  9. It's more a combination of how OLEDs (specifically) handle motion, and personal preference. For me, the settings above meant the peripheral environmental detail stays more clearly defined when you're swinging the camera around.
  10. Yeah, this plus I don't think I've ever played a game that takes so long to get to the point where it fully opens up to 'the game proper'. It took me 5hrs to see the opening credits.... and now I'm in the opening Daunt area and it feels like between the pre-credits bit and this valley, you could easily house a fairly substantial full price game. Then you look at the world map and it looks like that covers about 5% of the map.... it's insane. So I don't want to wade in with a 'hot take' when it feels like I've barely scratched the surface... after 11hrs. But lawks a lordy, do the conversation sections look good in Fidelity mode. The one with the cook (Milfur?) in the Chainscrape Inn looked absurdly realistic.
  11. I was getting the same issue. Save, completely quit the game and restart and the issue should be resolved. You may have to quit and restart again apparently, but it worked for me after one restart. Seems like there's something about day one patch doesn't completely apply/install until the next reboot.
  12. Apparently the day/night cycle only kicks in after you've exited the Daunt area.
  13. It's probably never going to happen but I'd love to see a 40fps mode for 120Hz TVs for this.
  14. Actually, that was really useful as that was the issue I was getting, namely that in Fidelity mode it looked like everything darkened slightly and shimmered when you moved the camera. If you stopped moving everything popped back again, but if anything it was too bright. It was almost as if a sharpening or edge enhancement filter was being applied. Having shut the game down and restarted (without downloading an update or restarting a second time) it seems to have fixed itself.
  15. Yeah sorry, I phrased that poorly. It’s not slowing loading, rather it’s prolonging the loading screen (unless you skip it or switch the option off) so you can read the hint. And in case anyone was worried about the PS4 version…
  16. There is an option for that in settings. By default it’s switched off, so it is artificially slowing loading down so that you can read the load screen hints.
  17. Footage of it running on the PS4 Pro: https://gfycat.com/clutteredweirdamethystgemclam https://gfycat.com/beautifulathleticgartersnake I've put this one behind spoiler tags as it shows a new town/village I'm not sure we've seen before: Edit: Would have been nice if they'd embedded properly, but they didn't
  18. Same here. I watched this over two nights as well. If I'd seen it in one sitting then the runtime might have started to grate, but... I really enjoyed it as a two parter. I liked it more than Shang-Chi (and I enjoyed that).
