    You can? I’ve been trekking back to my house.


    Also a telephone booth which doesn’t double up as a save point, annoyed me more than it should.

    Yep, press R1 and goto settings. Highlight where it says save and press x. Job done.

    Are trophies not enabled yet, they don’t even show them at all on my machine? I’m playing on a base PS4 and it is loud but nothing as bad as other here have and it’s still a lot quieter than my Dreamcast ever was.

    Yes trophies are working, I`ve unlocked a few.

  3. Done a few hours on Shenmue 3 now (can't remember last time I played a game this much in one day haha)


    Starting to get hang of fighting system now as it has been altered a fair bit from the previous 2. Don't seem to be any throws upto yet, not sure about later. (I want my dark side hazuki) There are plenty of sparing partners though to help hone your skills.


    Another thing I noticed is, that it doesn't open up bailu village in one go, rather takes the approach of opening up areas bit by bit as you advance through the story which keeps you focused on one area and gets you curious what it's gonna reveal next. 


    Plenty of dialog conversations with shenua at the end of the evenings, which opens up ryu and shenuas background which is a nice touch.


    Also a mention to health system, don't take long to get used to and can't make my mind up if I prefer it or not. But it definitely gives food/drink meaning now though.


    Been a long time that a game has got me this excited and can't wait to get back to it.



  4. Played around 3 hours upto yet, awesome stuff.  Yu has done this game justice by staying faithful to 1 &2, whilst bringing upto date. All i will say is fans wont be disappointed by what i`ve played.


    Also I went for ps4 version and had played trial version of pc maxed.  Visually doesn`t seem to be anything in it other than ps4 framerate, which hovers between 30 and 60fps.



  5. As my previous post on here, absolutely delighted to hear Yu Suzuki got life time achievement award.  It is deserved, because unlike alot of other developers Yu was into the hardware as much as the software side and had alot of input developing Segas model 1,2,3 boards as well as Dreamcast.  He pushed 3D graphics to where they are today and was a pleasure living through the 80s and 90`s visiting the arcades and seeing what Am2 could deliver.  Then going back home and wishing one day we will get arcade PERFECT ports at  home :D 


    Just noticed Shenmue 3 has shipped aswell, fingers crossed for delivery tomorrow.

  6. This is gonna blow my mind when this arrives through the letterbox! Huge thanks to all the backers and imo one of the greatest games creator around, Yu Suzuki for making this happen.  Glad to see some light at the end of the tunnel after all the negative feedback regarding Epic/steam situation.


    Anyone who wants to refresh there memory who Yu Suzuki is and what he has done for this industry, here is a reminder as this guy deserves way more respect than he gets. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yu_Suzuki

    Getting a little bit tired of this and with Fallen Order on the horizon I'm hoping I can wrap this up soon.  I've just arrived in Byzantium, having rinsed all the side quests elsewhere.  How long would you say I've got left to go?  

    Not long depending how you play it out on Byzantium. I went John Rambo on everyone and blitz through it in no time lol. I heard there isn't much in the way of decent side quests on Byzantium anyway. around 3 hours I would say.  Apologies for any spoilers earlier, didn't think what I put was but hey. Edited as such.

  8. Finished this today with around 17 hours on the clock.  Cleared up most of edge water, monarch i explored alot of and did a few side quests.  Last city Byzantium, pretty much wiped out anyone in my path and only remember doing one side mission with the movie guy.  Went down the path with philias till the end and overall, pretty much what the bag said above "liked, not loved"


    Really enjoyed Edgewater/roseway parts of the game. Monarch just felt like a bigger version of edgewater and at the end played out pretty much same as Edgewater anyway. Still enjoyed monarch overall except for the queen mantis in the out backs.  Byzantium I wasnt really feeling at all so just decided to get through it as quick as possible.


    Overall great addition to game pass and If i paid £30 for it, would of still got my moneys worth.

    Just to add to this: I found if I change the file outlined above with the fix in question, completely removing AA with the fix makes it look really awful with jaggies, BUT if you just put the Screen Effects setting to Low it seems to put on AA but at a very minimal level, so you don't get the aggressive blur effect but with no jaggies. So I'd go with that instead of the file tweak to be honest.


    Cheers will give it a try now.

    FWIW, my current thought is around temporal anti aliasing. Ghosting in other places when moving around, can be seen around the gun. 

    Yeah it is caused by the TAA solution they are using.  I tried scrolling the text at the terminal up and down, no issues with TAA disabled.  Shame they didn`t offer smaa or msaa as a alternative (fxaa is just as bad)  It was my main gripe with gears 5 aswell.

    If you're playing on PC set Screen Effects to Low. There is some kind of horrible smearing effect from whatever anti aliasing they are using on the game and if you turn it off it's much less blurry looking.


    The culprit Is the god awful TAA developers insist on using, which yeah eliminates jaggys, but as a side effect induces blurriness and smearing.  There is a work around to disable Anti aliasing if you wanna give it a try.  




    Tried it and makes image look nicer as its no longer blurry.  But looks to jaggy and no way to replace it with another AA solution so will have to put up with the TAA for now. 


    Other than that loving the game, didn`t think i was gonna like it but obsidian have really delivered the goods on this.  Love the setting and combat system.

  12. Nearing the end of act 1.  Overall good but not great. 


    Gun plays feels as good as ever, story wise feels a bit blah upto yet.  Go here, do this.  Meet up with so and so. Feels like the narrative is off and having to remind myself what my aim is after wiping out another swarm/horde. 


    Visuals, nice but coming of Control on the pc with all rtx effects enabled I` not as amazed as some.  SSR sucks balls, especially when trying to reflect your character in any mirror.  Also looks like taa is being used which softens visual fidelity to much.  Shame they didnt give you option.  On the Plus side, destruction of scenery and particle effects look ace.


    Hopefully it picks up in chapter 2 and gets going as I`m not enjoying it as much as i did 4 upto yet.

    Time to download Metro Exodus

    for a pound

    amazing scenes


    I reckon I can toss £4 a month at this service. :lol: 


    If its the PC version, I noticed there is a resolution issue to watch out for. It outputs at a low resolution when you first boot the game up, even though it`s quoting 1980x1080.  To sort the issue, drop the res to 800x600 for example (apply) then re apply the correct resolution you want ie 1920x1080 and that sorts its.

    So where are our RTX owners to tell us how ray tracing transforms the experience?


    (I sound sarcastic, but I’m genuinely interested to hear what they think of the implementation).

    Looks fantastic, and definitely gives plenty of wow moments, but like the rest of battlefield V there is alot of issues to iron out and more optimisation to be done.  Plus Im running it on a i5-4690k cpu and bottlenecks without ray tracing, let alone with it on lol


    Doesn't transform the experience, but definitely adds to it. Rotterdam map, what they shown at the nvidia conference is definitely the STAND OUT map for rtx without a doubt. Been killed many of times, being distracted by my own reflection lol


    Even though lots of people have slagged nvidia of for the direction they have gone with the RTX cards, chasing graphical fidelity instead of those headline fps figures @ 4k I believe they have made the right choice going forward.The futures bright with Ray Tracing in our lives :D

  15. After getting by the first year and finally getting the online side to work, this game is becoming better than i imagined.  Just completed my first live forzathon challenge and being able to join other peoples challenges with ease with LB button makes the whole online/solo integration seamless.


    Like how they have clearly separated challenges this time round and makes alot more sense, so your no picking the wrong car for the challenge ahead.


    Only downside is Edinburgh has put me on a big downer, thinking back to the times playing PGR2 and that we will never get to see another PGR game for next gen platforms made :( Suppose replaying the road/street races round Edinburgh will have to suffice :unsure:



  16. Anyone having issues connecting to online side on PC?  Couldn't get a horizon life or adventure to work, was just hanging on finding game.  after going through loads of fixes, found this one to work for me, if anyone else if having problems with online side give it ago.
