No, it shows you why GamesCom in Cologne is the far more important (and bigger) event. 1 entire day of dev only and press only event. 1 hour for 2 days later opening to so you can talk with developers after seeing their demos. The gamescom demos you always get are that good because developers have time to showcase to invite only audiences.

The GamesCom concept is to me superior, especially because it involves far more Indy and smaller devs and most importantly Chinese, Japanese and Eastern European devs.

Bethesda was mad that it's name was Scrolls.

Nonsense, they came to an agreement. The shutdown was because it has like 50 players.

Ugh, that does not bode well. And wtf is with all the commas? Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode with the exclamation points!

Commas or not, this change is good. Guild 3 on steam was abysmal (even for an EA game) I'd say it's still 2 years out too, really a lot of features barely or not even at all working.

And visually it looks like something form the 90ies...

You remember that time when ID defined what games looked like how they played and created an entire new genre? Yeah, me neither, it's that long ago.

Golden Age maybe financially, but ID has zero wide range influence now and created one of the visually and technical worst engines in the market. So much worse, that they don't even use it for their own games anymore. They use the Apex engine from Avalanche Studios for Rage 2, so maybe it will actually be a good game. ^^

Avalanche by the way seems to be developing an engine usable for movie quality RT rendering. The likes of realtime raytracing and all that

Eventually through the 'unintended' process of eradicating the nazi symbol from the 'history books' the swastika will return to being a symbol of good luck.

Might take a 100 years but I think it'll happen.

https://flashbak.com/the-coca-cola-swastika-12321/

Or, perhaps, no one will see an undesireable logo inside a game without people meaning for it to be there.

No one thinks it will ever go back to good luck. Nor is removing it from a damn cartoon game removing it from history books. I don't get what is wrong with people. How in the hell is taking something accidentally in a cartoon game at all comparable to removing it from history books?

You free speech people are so obsessed with nazi symbols that it overrides any critical thinking power you have.

The "manji" symbol is sacred in many Asian religions, including Hindu, Buddism, and Jainism. It retains its original meaning of well being in the countries where those religions are practiced, and shows no signs of being deprecated.

The joke is an unintentional swastika isn't even illegal in Germany and when it ain't illegal there I wonder why I should care when 90° rotations create on unintentionally ^^ It's very common when you do stylized artworks too. Hard lines tend to align when you rotate 4x

Replace game with religion and the text reads...

Religious disorder is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent religious behavior (‘digital preaching’ or ‘video-preaching’), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline, manifested by: 1) impaired control over religious behavior (e.g., onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context); 2) increasing priority given to religion to the extent that religion takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities; and 3) continuation or escalation of religious activities despite the occurrence of negative consequences. The behaviour pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning. The pattern of religious behavior may be continuous or episodic and recurrent. The religious behavior and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.

Just saying, if you can reword your classification by just replacing a TOPICAL MARKER then maybe your classification needs work Or maybe the WHO is just applying a template and flings it at a wall to see what sticks.

Hyper religiosity that occurs outside of societal/cultural norms is more appropriately diagnosed under delusional and psychotic disorders

That's opening up way more questions than I dare to ask hehe

Finally I can say "I knew that before that PSA"

Specifically 4k 144hz HDR screens are a SCAM, they are neither HDR10 nor are they 4K (at 144hz) and the way 8bit panels are frequency averaged to 10bit is also scummy to the extreme.

It just boggles the mind that screen makers ship screens with those limitations fully knowing that what they sell CAN NOT function, the new standard for HDMI and DP is still miles away. Yes, the 1180 will use a new proprietary port, but these 4k 144hz monitors sold now don't support that and neither does any other monitor.......

It's good to finally have it said in clear what chroma subsampling actually does though, that is quite confusing otherwise.

Soccer / World Cup question:

Player A gets a yellow card in his team's first match. Player A gets a yellow card in his team's second match. He is now suspended for the next match. Late in the second game he gets a third yellow card. He is removed from the game for getting two yellows in the same game. My question -- is he now only one yellow card from a second suspension? I would assume so, but just wanted to verify.

There are only 3 qual matches and the first KO match where that matters. If he leaves the game red in the 2nd match he'd be (at the very least) banned for 2 games. That means quarter finals would be where he could play again. But it can also be a much more severe punishment. The first yellow card would not likely matter but yes, it remains until quarter finals. He couldn't get punished for getting a 2nd# 1st yellow in the first KO match though.

Cyberpubk, TES 6, Maybe Starfield, Dying Light 2, and Satisfactory. That was the surprise hit of E3 for me. Still have yet to see the bloody Cyberpunk demo.

Pretty much same for me, everything else is a skip. What I was surprised NOT to see is Anno 1800, which is still apparently coming this year, so they and probably everyone else are waiting for Gamescom (in August) where we'll see a lot more interesting upcoming games with actual footage

Wow
I scored a 2, not gonna ruin that by taking the full test because i already know I'm colorblind.

Scored a 0 and am color blind (red green) but my problem isn't only with certain brightness levels and clearly my screen pushes those hues out of those... (which is obviously good, I don't need color blindness settings in games even though I am red/Green weak ,p)

Lovely
the first rule of fight club ..

It is amusing that including women in the game is the thing that triggers people to go apeshit about historical accuracy. As if every prior game in the Battlefield series has been totally historically accurate up until this point.

The only reason people go apeshit is because something EA did hurt their bottled up feelings. And gee, after Andromeda, after killing Sim City, after killing Mass Effect, after Killing Deadspace, I wonder why that might be... ;p

If this had been done by any other Publisher there would be zero outrage. But EA does what EA does best, hit every nerve and then be confused why people consider them the worst company on the planet.

And by the way, I will not buy BF5 exactly because it's a WW2 game... women or not don't matter, but that said, the first trailer was the worst trailer ever for a Battlefield game. Nothing of the bombast or wow effect, just pandering and what appeared to be the setting of a fantasy war.

I actually started playing BF4 again, and by the gods is that (mechanical) superior to BF1 in every way.

With a chroma key of 4:2:2 it can't be a 10bit panel. Or maybe it is one and they reduce it intentionally at 144hz 4k because of bandwidth issues (far as I remember, you can only output 144hz 4K with 4:4:4 up to 90hz over DP 1.4, HDMI is even worse..... Either way, with that chroma key it ain't HDR10 what you are seeing on that screen, the gamma would be all fucked (parts too dark and parts too bright)

Whether you can tell this in front of the screen I dunno, but specs wise it is not *showing* 10bit nor does it correctly display HDR10, which is a real laugh imo But it preys on people who have no idea about Chroma keys and LUT and Gamma ranges... You only get non distorted HDR10 if you run things at 72HZ which totally invalidates the entire gsync idea. If you run the screen at 144hz by default ALL your content is gonna be displayed at 4:2:2

Unless I misunderstand the specs...

Yes, it is a 10-bit panel that can properly display HDR10, it's just limited by current DisplayPort 1.4 bandwidth.

4k can display at 4:4:4 up to a max of 98hz. I believe there's even a setting in the Nvidia control panel that lets you set this limit if you always want 10-bit. Anything over 98hz is limited to 4:2:2.

It's a DP1.4 limitation, not the panel.

Thanks for clarifying, but I find that makes this screen of the most egregious marketing lies I've ever seen then. At the default specs they advertise for this screen it isn't pushing 10bits of color nor luminance. It's got a noisy fan and backlight bleeding AND halo effects. If I wanted all the things I hate in screens in 1 I'd get this I guess.

Also holy moly, is it true that HDMI runs this at 4:2:0 ? Because that'd be.. absurd. right? They wouldn't sell a screen with such a limitation.. right?

2500€ in Europe also means an 8 BIT IPS panel with backlight bleeding, halo effects and no 144hz with HDR10 content. Which the screen can't display correctly anyway, because HDR 10 means 10 bit color depth, not just brightness. So an 8bit panel can't display HDR 10 correctly no matter what.

I can find better TV's for half the price. Even OLEDs and that's the real crazy part.

Huh? The Acer X27 is definitely a 10-bit panel.

The halo effect pointed out in the video has me worried. I was planning on getting one of these eventually. I'll have to reconsider.

Unfortunately OLED still has too many burn-in issues for me to consider as a PC monitor. Although I don't believe there are really any out there yet anyway.
