  1. Has anybody tried to stream the audio and visuals to tv either via facebook or otherwise? The ability to do that is fairly essential to the party aspect of this. The only thing holding me back on a purchase really, it looks fantastic and I’m ready to push the button.
  2. These are exceptional TommyG, you have a great eye for a striking image.
  3. Creativity can often be a painful process. When one is already in pain in one way or another, it is a lot easier to let that process take hold.
  4. Ah this question for me is emphatically answered by Spike Lee's insanely awful 'She Hate Me'. Not just bad, offensive to boot! I leave it to the eloquence of Rotten Tomatoes to sum up: "a movie that spews so much random, senseless, undigested matter that it seems more like projectile vomiting than filmmaking." "A uniquely insane film which should be experienced and needs to be seen to be believed." "Deeply offensive, staggeringly unfunny, pretentious and, at 140 minutes, about 135 minutes too long..." And my personal favourite: "The kind of extravagantly bad movie only a genius could make, She Hate Me feels like an embarrassingly public nervous breakdown."
  5. Ugh, Pixar are just a factory now, churning out boiler plate anim performances in their recent work and I don't see this being any different. They've never come close to the quality of the original Toy Story with either of the sequels. 'Ratatouille' was the high watermark for acting in animation (special mention to Amonalisa) 'Up' their last genuinely good film.
  6. Some of the mocap looks a bit floaty but overall I think this looks fantastic, the facial performance feels really on point. Looking forward to it!
  7. Aye, using an Oled. To be honest I found the colour looks more natural with the 'fake' HDR applied, but couldn't handle the washed out look. But with the contrast boosted at the 500 setting it seems to have arrived at an agreeable visual solution. Probably the most decent I can get it. I also changed the output on my PS4 Pro to 1080p only. Game seems to run at a more stable framerate (at least in Valentine, I haven't gone too far into the game yet), and the fans run pretty quiet.
  8. I was skeptical about this at first as it was already quite washed out at 300, but sticking it up to 500 is surprisingly pretty good for some reason. Not a patch on proper HDR like God of War or Assassin’s Creed Odyssey mind.
  9. I doubt it’s an artistic decision, more the game has been in development for so long HDR wasn’t a thing when a lot of the assets and textures were being created. It probably wasn’t practical to reconfigure everything to take into account the wider colour space and contrast. Saying that, sticking the HDR slider up to 500 does give a satisfying enough effect.
  10. HDR normally looks amazing to me on my Oled tv, but this game it just looks washed out. The image quality has better contrast and punchy colours in SDR. I’m going to play with HDR off for now. Hopefully Rockstar provide a patch to give us better calibration controls at least.
  11. On PS4 Pro the HDR is really badly implemented. Like, Monster Hunter World bad.
  12. Yeah pretty much this. Those Disney remakes that the kids love so much? They are created by a company lovingly referred to by those working there as ‘The glue factory’.
  13. Careful, the BB zealots will be gunning for you. I agree, it's not remotely in the same bracket as The Wire, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, West Wing, The Americans, The Leftovers. It was just an ok-ish very implausible crime caper series, with overwrought emotional baggage slapped on top to give it some gravitas. BCS however is a brilliantly constructed drama.
  14. On the surface it seems the same deal but not really close to the quality of storytelling or characters. That's really interesting to hear, though thankfully doesn't affect my appreciation of the artful storytelling, amazing performances and camera work. Though I guess in fairness the 'historical accuracy' metric should have a multiplier applied when considering the ranking of WWII themed films.
