...one of the worse games I have ever played this side of Atari's E.T.

Just a tad bit hyperbolic, ja? It wasn't that bad, man. Yes, it shit the bed A:CM-style, I'll give you that but I think that was due to a mix of overwhelming hype (that Sony refused to keep control of), a dev-turned-PR-failure getting in way over his head and fanbois making another delay an impossibility. If they'd delayed it for another six months, brought in some competent QA and maybe had a limited public beta test, they could've avoided a lot of this. Just having the game 'leak' before retail release was enough to show them that they needed to rework some serious issues. I've started to think that maybe the 'leak' was intentional, given their lack of QA.

Still, there are worse games out there. Much worse. At least NMS is playable. And some do find it enjoyable. Apparently, it's got a rather large ASMR following. If it could get some good mods and if HG could release the proposed additions of owning freighters and building bases, it would help considerably. This could be an X-type game, with a trade interface and possibly owning stations/bases. The base game is a good foundation, it just needs someone to build something amazing on top of it!


=-Rigs-=

I firmly believe that most people who compare a game they think is bad to Atari's E.T. simply haven't played it and are using it as a token based on the numerous stories about it being the worst game ever. It's pretty much a meme at this point.

Sony's marketing sure is in full swing. I don't see the PS4 pro being much of a success besides selling well to people who don't have a PS4 yet, or are replacing a broken one and can justify the extra cost. And people/parents with plenty of disposable income who just don't give a fuck.

Everyone who saw the presentation/unveiling for PS4 Pro they did recently, came away with the same lackluster feeling from it all. And on top of that the inventor of Blu-Ray cant even seem to get a 4k disc drive in their own damn console when their competitor already has one in theirs. Pretty silly. (I'm guessing this has more to do with some internal Sony beef regarding competing with themselves, and undercutting their own BD4k devices currently out there.. but it is a mistake, nonetheless.)

I personally just want the newly revised controller with the supposedly decreased input lag, and for proper drivers for PC to be released by sony. Was hoping this would happen with the PSnow/wireless adapter launch, but I'm not holding my breath.

The multiplayer is so laughably bad in this game that I'm surprised they didnt just scrap any future updates and focus on the single player. Does not bode well for Quake Champions at all, that the current shot-callers at iD/Bethesda consider this passable multiplayer.

Got back into Overwatch lately after a short break and multiplayer does feel really good now (It was good before too, but there were very noticeable issues). Havent encountered any shoot around corners or the weird yo-yo interpolation errors I would get while jet boosting with d-va every once in a while before. That shit sucked in comp play during season 1 especially.

Good. That means I get to stay cuz I may be angry and a moron but I ain't fat, bud .

Also, real intelligent to write shit about a "healthy comments section" and then insult posters as "fat angry morons". Looks like I'm by far not the most moronic moron around here but we already established that in this and many other threads before it.

Reagle has got you beat by several thousand country miles. No worries there.

This is not bundled with the first Halo, which would have been an awesome addition if it were true..

Instead it includes "the Halo app, which provides the latest news, videos, tutorials, featured community content, update notes, and more from across the entire Halo universe."

From the Source Engine and that era, I understood HDR to be adjusting the image to simulate our eyes adjusting to light: making dark scenes have more visible detail (with light areas being washed out) and light scenes have more contrast and vibrancy (with detail in dark areas being almost indistinguishable).

1) Is this even correct for 3D engines?
2) How does this apply to hardware (and its firmware/OS/etc)? Do they apply a filter to the rendered 2D image and if so, does that affect image quality?

The HDR that valve pioneered is specifically for lighting effects in games, so that would be better described as "HDR Lighting". The TV standard allows for greater color depth as well. I believe the 10 in the HDR10 standard refers to 10bit color, and for Dolby's superior implementation, they use 12bit color.

With this, nVidia is now forcing us to log into their mothership server before we can record our gameplay. What's next? We need to authenticate with them before we can play our games so they can lock us out at their whim even though we bought their card? There are people reporting not getting registration confirmation e-mails for hours. People are livid with nV. Forget using shadowplay offline!

Woah, I need confirmation on this. You can't use Shadowplay offline? That would be a killer for me. Holding off till I hear more.

Confirmed.

I tried logging out and using the program and it will not proceed past the login page.

Disabling the ethernet adapter on my pc and then relaunching the program resulted in the message "GeForce Experience requires an active internet connection to function".

This wasn't necessary in the Beta version, I wonder why the switch?

If you log in to the new GeForce experience, there is a feedback button in the bottom-right corner. Report the issue there so they will hopefully address it.

Copy/paste my feedback to them in there if you want:

"I cannot use shadowplay or any geforce experience features without logging in, and I do not always have/use an internet connection when I'm playing games, thus making the shadowplay feature of my card (a specific reason I bought a Nvidia card) inaccessible at times, although it should always be available.

I wish to use my card with the features advertised when I purchased it. It was never specified that I would need to have an active internet connection to use the features I paid for with my Nvidia GPU."

They expect people who want to use the headphones they already own to carry around an adapter with them so that this is possible.

And when you no-doubt lose this adapter they will sell you a replacement for $29.95.

LOL

Ive been using the beta for a while now and it is much better than the old version. The Shadowplay improvements alone are worth the upgrade.

PS4 pro was a thoroughly disappointing reveal. Didnt talk about specs, basically it does 4k in 30fps and for 1080 tv's can either downscale 4k to 1080 like DSR at 30fps or can play titles @ 1080 60fps consistently (old and new ones). Oh, and HDR for everything, including the older PS4 which is going to have a software update to support it.

Rockstar didn't show up, as anticipated. People in the stream seemed more interested in RDR than any 4k 30fps crap sony was peddling.

The PS4 Pro is going to have around 4tflops GPU power, and microsoft's new console is claimed to be around 6tflops. Ouch.

Edit: and apparently 4k is not native at all either, it is going to be upscaling with a "temporal antialaising filer".

The World's Best Hacked Site

I decided to read the article. The headline is totally misleading. It was some forum, not even owned by Brazzers, for people to discuss the Brazzers website.

I would guess a good portion of those users share usernames/passwords on different sites including brazzers though.

Dolphin is amazing. Metroid Prime in HD? Get out of here. I wish all the platforms received emulation this high quality.

PCSX2 does an admirable job with upscaling and running smooth as butter also. Just replayed G-darius recently from the taito classics collection downsampled from like 8k, it was glorious =)

I've not tired that one, but tempted to, what do they recommend for controls?


AFAIK dolphin supports both directinput and xinput. Just as long as you have as many buttons as the Gamecube controller had (360, One, and PS4 controllers all do), you should be good to go with any controller.

That PSVR article lists one of the "advantages" of their headset is the 120hz display. How it having a higher refresh rate on a console that will never come close to that many FPS an advantage?

Ooh, more one-die toys for intel to play with, me likey. Lord knows when they adopted AMD's on-die memory addresser with the ix series, things really took a turn. This is something that I'll hope will make it into the 9xxx series of CPUs, as the 8xxx will be the tick to 10nm, and the tock will be 9xxx to introduce a new marchitecture.

So 2 years from now will be a good time to upgrade my CPU, we'll see if this timeline comes true.

I read that Intel was abandoning the tick>tock cycle for releasing CPU's going forward.
