  1. But then, some of us support Everton.
  2. At the rate things are going next week a villa defender will head the ball away and find they've given away a penalty for handball. Farcical. It's not even subjective, surely. VAR is great, our attempt to make use of it is like some massive pisstake.
  3. Yeah, I saw that and it reads like the very definition of half-arsed. Thing is, if it flops it'll be "well, people clearly aren't interested in this sort of game any more" rather than "shit, people realised we've totally phoned it in for a quick nostalgia based cash grab". Mind you I've not even tried the demo yet so maybe I'll hold on the hyperbole for now.
  4. I honestly can't tell if you're putting in the effort to do this on purpose or not. Well done, I guess!
  5. As long as you go for one for their £4-£5 ones and don't spunk £30-£100 on one advertised with "oxygen free copper wire for minimal data loss" that are an utter pisstake, yeah, I guess.
  6. I had (still have) a mid-to-high end Panasonic plasma, and it's fantastic. Despite that, I bought a mid-to-high end LG 4k HDR TV, and watching the intro to Guardians of the Galaxy 2 absolutely blew me away in comparison. But I didn't like the backlighting, so I replaced it with an LG 4k HDR OLED and it blew me away again, to an extent I really wasn't expecting. There's more to it than 4k alone, HDR definitely makes a difference for example and more games will be making more use of that I assume, but even non-HDR material is absolutely superb and it's genuinely affected how I watch TV. It's not guaranteed to be as minor a change as you seem to think it can only be, basically.
  7. The game we've been waiting for all these years. Covers the funding aspect as well.
  8. There's some examples on here, not the best but if you drag the slider left and right over the HUD icons on the bottom right you should be able to see they're clearly (ok, slightly) sharper, so it does have an effect. https://www.windowscentral.com/xbox-one-x-supersampling If you've got an Xbox One, download the Insects demo and that allows you to see the effect on the fly (haha! ok, it's a ladybird, I know) and I thought it was pretty impressive even on a 1080p screen, albeit subtle. The other thing is the games are more likely to be rendered well above 1080p to start with, whereas a lot of current games aren't even rendered in full HD (whether running at a set sub-full HD resolution, or some sort of dynamic resolution that only sometimes reaches full HD) and actually end up being upscaled as a result, so you'd have the benefit of a consistent 1080p picture on top.
  9. Yet if you're paying a quid a unit for a bunch of 1m HDMI leads shipped form China, you're probably more likely to get one that is rated incorrectly or broken aren't you. You only need to pay a couple of quid more, but you can reduce those odds. We're both saying pretty much the same thing, that only came about because someone else made a daft comment in the first place....
  10. @gooner4life That's pretty much literally what I said edit: Just checked, my most expensive ever HDMI cable was £9.74. For a 10m one, and it's perfect (for the rare use it gets, it was when I was trying to test something years ago with the PC and the TV and couldn't be arsed moving the PC to where the TV was).
  11. Not quite the case; some are better than others but it's only the really cheap generic stuff that can be a bit dodgy - especially the longer the cable - and of course you can still get cheap generic stuff that's really very good. But yeah, anyone spending a fortune (where "fortune" = over five to ten quid) expecting a better, more vibrant picture or some such bollocks clearly has a screw loose. If that's what you want, just get an LG OLED to start with.
  12. What? No, this is amazing material! It's like someone was dug up from 5 years ago.
  13. Guess they'll be wanting a nice new console to show off 4k then! Good job they support it, phew.
  14. The One X already supersamples and so makes things look "better" even on a 1080p screen due to extra processing, don't see why the next one wouldn't if it's got even more power in the bank to do so.
  15. Floating operations per second, and this Series X can do 12 x 100000000000 of these floating operations a second, which sounds quick doesn't it. Almost mystic, even. I don't know who counts these things or how, and it's probably the case that should it actually do that number then your house will set on fire.

    Bayonetta, probably, unless you fancy a resolution boost. Vanquish is (I think) only 30fps though on 360 so that might be more than a worthwhile upgrade, especially if you have an X as it's solid 1440p 60fps. I'll probably buy them both (again) anyway, but I'll wait for a sale.

    I was just about to convert some MS rewards points to buy the double pack of these, having never played Vanquish after bouncing off the 360 demo and I've got Bayonetta 1&2 on Wii U but it'd be nice to have a digital copy elsewhere having sold the physical 360 version years ago. Before I did, I had a check through and discovered I own Vanquish and Bayonetta digitally, both from GwG and both are BC, and I also own Vanquish and Bayonetta on PC as well because of course I fucking do, have never even installed them Probably don't really need a 4th copy of Bayonetta and a 3rd copy of Vanquish then really, do I.
  18. Is that the "spot the ball" competition?
  19. Bear in mind it takes about three chapters to get going.
  20. Sign up to psprices.com and get alerts when the prices actually do drop, see graphs of when the prices did drop to see if any of them ever do get discounts, etc.
  21. I said that in the next paragraph, and it was £7.99 when I checked hence £4 per month. Still better than £10.99 per month either way obviously.
  22. Increase your chances of a fire? We need look no further than your fine example of a disaster-waiting-to-happen setup
  23. Gamepass solely for PC is supposed to be 4 quid a month. If you're paying more than that you've likely bought the wrong sub, and given you're seemingly on Ultimate means you're paying for Xbox Live and Gamepass on Xbox already. That also means you've probably fucked your chances of performing some minor chicanery in order to get up to 3 years worth of Ultimate for £3 a month, thus saving yourself up to around £275. Definitely check, log in to microsoft.com or wherever and go to https://account.microsoft.com/services/ to see what sub you actually do have. If you are on Ultimate, stop paying £10.99 a month for a start. You can get three month's of standard Gamepass from cdkeys.com that translates to two months of Ultimate extension. Even at it's current price of £7.99 that means you'd be getting Ultimate for £4 a month using those.
  24. If "they" is "you" then yeah, I can believe that. You're therefore saying The Grand Budapest Hotel isn't any good, which is objectively nonsense
