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.

Unless I misunderstand the specs... just to be clear, this screen would need 2 (DP) connectors to overcome this limitation.

LOL, yea that is ridiculous, but not as ridiculous as the price tag. I bought an LG 31.5 with GSync, and I love the monitor. its not 4K but its still a damn goof looking monitor and the picture quality is really nice. and it clocks up to 165Hz And I only paid 700 for it.

Most other reviews are either glowing, or at least positive. Rock Paper Shotgun called it disappointing, but wasn't the torpedo here. Others seem to think it's fantastic, but often only played 8-10 hours. Those reviews are kind of vague. This one really gets into why it hated the game, and those reasons make sense to me.

I actually canceled any plan of getting this because of this review, time acceleration is a huge thing missing. Ain't nobody got time for all that nowadays, but most importantly waiting 10 minutes to make 1 dinosaur, a time during which you can't do ANYTHING ELSE because you need the money and you roll a dice against that time with 30% fail chance, does not sound fun to me....

Sigh, I had such high hopes for this ;/

Wow, that's one of the most crushing reviews I've read in a long while.

most of the time, you’re sitting around performing mandatory boring tasks

only the Dinosaur Rating determines how much money you make means you can completely neglect the Park Rating

Seems zero creativity allowed in park design.. even more "ouch"

I'm getting a Cyberpunk gta feeling. It would be great since CD Projekt RED is far more capable than rockstar.

On the plus side, it would be a huge step above rockstar if they can just give us a version where we aren't forced to play villains. Sadly the first thing that sticks out is being forced to play as a male character. Not only does it reduce RPGness by 50% out of the gate. Some of us don't want to run around for 10+ hours plus looking at some guy's butt. Urk

You can play both genders...

To me this game is now a definitive skip. I watched all of jackfrags videos and already I don't want any more WW2. Maybe because I played 1942 to death in a clan like, professionally. But I can't stand WW2 anymore, I skipped COD WW2 and I skip this. Fair is fair.

"Anthem is all about teamwork."

Forced MP? No sale. Looks like nothing but grind anyway.

Did you even watch the video Cutter? They clearly stated that yes, this is a Coop game ,but you can still play it Solo. Gezz dude, watch the fucking videos before saying shit.

The problem is that what they say and show in the video is unclear as hell. Is it like Monster Hunter, where I can put down beacons to invite other players into a hunt but have AI buddies otherwise (which I find acceptable). Or is it going to be The Division or Destiny 2, an unplayable shitshow in SP where it's basically enforced MP. Or is it going to be like Warframe where I can rando queue and have fun. Or is going to be like GTA Online (A way of MP game I find abhorrently horrific)

I think the real problem Anthem has is that still nobody has any clue where on this range it falls. I really wish I did though, because that would finally decide whether I care for it or not.

And then there is still the problem that this is EA, and EA is EA, EA won't get my money unless the game is substantially good. And that remains to be seen too

Also there is this
https://gamerant.com/anthem-npc-squadmates/

And with that Anthem is from my care list

Some parts of Anthem, including the Stronghold raid missions, will require four player

So it's like The Division. SP is not a possible route to complete the game or use many of it's combat features.

I've seen all I think I need to see of the gameplay. I'm interested in three answers: Will there be player-run servers? Will there be a server browser? Will there be forced auto-balance? Even after removing the loot box stuff, Battlefront 2 is a crap show without those three things.

1) player-run servers are never coming back.
2) probably, won't know till they release beta through
3) difficult to force auto-balance in a game where you want to play with your buddies in squads. If you're not grouped into a party together then you'll probably be the one selected for team balance.



It would be enough if they autobalanced aggressively every minute, in BF1 auto balance only triggers at the end of a round, which is why nearly every single game in BF1 is a lopsided boring mess, just like BF1 is.

Also I just played it yesterday (already uninstalled it again though) and when I pressed quick play it put me in an EMPTY SERVER. So they didn't even fix the release day bug with matchmaking. Lmao

I can see that single combat thing get old fast after the 3rd or 4th time when you've already seen all the animations.

Nothing forces you to look at the fight, it just takes a general and his abilities out of the fight and it would be REALLY nice to have that in Warhammer 2 too where legendary lords can be quite game changing. Even if animations wouldn't line up ever, just having that ability to tie a lord up would be neat. Currently lords can get knocked so far out of the way by big monsters that you have to actively order a chase and that chase can really lead you through the entire enemy army.

other than a graphical and animation update, the battle does not look any different from the Total Wars before it.

this being 3 kingdoms, just how much maneuverability and complexity had they designed for the campaign map and diplomacy? The continued attraction to this period lies on the tricks of war, the alliances and it's inevitable betrayals...

ps. the voice acting is terrible. An option for period suitable language with subs perhaps?

Nobody would understand period suitable mandarin, not even Chinese, also nobody actually speaks it*

just saw someone post somewhere else that they were doing mandarin voice overs. Don't know how true is that though

still complete cheeseballs dialogue though

Well they did Japanese voice overs in Shogun II (only Fall of Samurai did not have them weirdly enough) so I am sure they will do Mandarin voice overs. And if they don't, we can always mod that in ;p
