  1. Playing the game on a Ryzen 5 1600 with an RTX 2080, I think I've settled on my compromise: 4K output using DLSS rendering at 1920x1080 Volumetric Lighting: Medium RTX - Contact Hardening Shadows: Off RTX - Indirect Diffuse Lighting: Off Everything else: Max I think that gives me the best balance of fancy effects, perceived resolution and a consistent ~60fps; I've a limited range FreeSync monitor to help smooth aberrations. To be honest I don't really notice the difference from lowering the settings I have. I'm sure there is a difference, and no doubt I could clock it in a proper side-by-side comparison, but in terms of actual visual impact during play the indirect reflections are the clear standout.
  2. How's the zip on it? The one on mine is total bobbins so I'm going to have to send the case back, but I'm wondering if I should get a refund rather than a replacement so I could buy something more robust.
  3. Naturally install size varies by game, but does 64GB – or however much is actually usable – seem like a decent amount of space? I feel the premium for the more capacious model would be better spent on games, unless they'll barely fit.
  4. Custom sculpts can eat up thermometer usage. The timestamped video below has some optimisation tips and shows off the built-in detail reduction tool, which should help:
  5. There's a PC mod that swaps in orchestral versions of almost all the music; a couple of tracks currently only exist in MIDI form. It's seamlessly implemented and not hard to install. Orchestration doesn't save some of the soundtrack from being poor, mind.
  6. My download says 64GB; to which I say, "Maybe tomorrow". If they were about to take Blackout F2P you'd think they could be bothered to break it out into its own client.
  7. It's not too late for them to patch in a document detailing how the RCPD blew their quarterly underspend on making all the glass in the precinct bulletproof. This is just under £30 on PC via CDKeys, by the way.
  8. To propose a slightly less depressing nightmare future, I think a more palatable approach would be to extend the existing suspend-resume functionality. For example, perhaps new machines would be able to dump the state of two games and a media app to temporary storage, allowing you to switch between a pair of games and Netflix within a few seconds rather than having to sit through lengthy initial loads each time. I think that would benefit most people that play games to some capacity, especially when every other release is pitched as a games-as-a-service life-absorber that you're supposed to jump into every day.

    Xbox Game Pass

    Games due to leave Game Pass should probably pop up a notification when you launch them, a bit like how trial versions tell you how many hours you have left. I would hope Microsoft's next console UI is being designed with that kind of thing in mind. I suspect such transparency would actually benefit publishers, as it would make people more likely to pick up a game due to leave the service in a sale or the like.
  10. I'd like them to try putting glider redeployment back in but add, say, a 1.5 second recovery animation on landing where you can't move or switch equipment. That way it remains a useful means of getting around the map, and a considered way of repositioning during firefights, but if you try to rush someone that sees you coming they'll have a massive advantage.
  11. I'm not saying Waypoint isn't at risk, as Vice doesn't seem like the most stable employer, but the circumstantial evidence provided isn't exactly compelling. For example, they stopped streaming Bloodborne because Natalie found it too frustrating to stream, especially with a week between sessions; she'd like to continue it on her own time at home but the save is tied to Austin's PSN account. In terms of other streaming they recently did a 36-hour charity event (72-hour including community streams). As for the boxes, they contained a giant Vault Boy that Bethesda had sent them, unsolicited, and they had nowhere else to put them.
  12. Well, seems like I'm going to have to finally learn how to play mahjong to finish one of the side stories. I even tried using what was presumably a cheat item, but I've so little idea of what was going on I might well have been squandering its effects.
  13. The Game Collection still have it on PS4; Xbox version is out of stock. If you ordered it now it should arrive tomorrow. I don't buy many physical games these days, but as I'll be getting a special boxed copy of Shenmue III it seemed fitting to have the set.
