Was able to snag an xbox series x from bestbuy overnight
@Colby Searcy Have you heard of Visage? It's out now on PS4. One of the scariest games I've ever played. I'm loving it.
Anyone here play Below? I remember it getting pretty mediocre reviews when it came out, mostly due to its difficulty, but I am a couple hours in and loving it. There is no tutorial or explanation of what you are doing in the game so its a bit of a learning curve but its atmosphere is incredible and its giving me the same feeling I had when I played Dark Souls for the first time.
It’s great until it isn’t. It depends how much of the tedium you can stomach
Good to know. I feel like I have a pretty high tolerance for tedium.
Finally got Dark Souls 3 lmao. Was a tenner on the store and I’m jealous of PS5 folk with demon’s souls so sigh this’ll do lol. Having a lot of fun though. Only played Bloodborne and Sekiro so I’m enjoying it
I mean just the gameplay alone Dark Souls 3 is miles beyond Demon's Souls.
DS3 is my fav of the trilogy easily
Godfall’s performance mode runs at 1350p on the PS5.
Isn’t performance mode supposed to be downgraded visuals for 60- and higher FPS? Isn’t that the point lmao
Yes but it’s still extremely low. Like that’s almost 1080p.
Out of interest, what do other games performance modes run at? I thought the aim was 1080p + 60FPS on performance and 4K + 30FPS on fidelity? I'm sure I remember Digital Foundry talking about that for Miles Morales.
between 1512 and 1440p
honestly this is quite shocking to me too. I thought the ps5 was more powerful than that. Hmmmmm.
Valhalla runs at 1800p and above at an almost locked 60 so there’s that also, but I understand it’s not as impressive from a graphics standpoint.
edit: correction on Valhalla
The lowest measured pixel count is 1440p (67 per cent of native 4K on either axis) while the maximum is 1728p (80 per cent native)
edit 2: Demon's Souls is also 1440p at 60fps.
1080p even is fine though, let alone more
I mean if you don't care about image quality that's perfectly fine but the fact is that these 10+ Tflops boxes can't do 4k 60 on the reg is disappointing.
I started playing Bloodborne again, god help me. I plan to actually make it past the blood starved beast this time.
I think the rate of diminishing returns sets in fast after 1080p. Framerate is a different story.
I feel like debating what is and what isn’t acceptable image quality is besides the point bud, the fact is that at this point in time these machines are coming in below (at least my) expectations.
You can do it!
I played it back in 2015 and took a ton of tries to beat Cleric Beast and Gascoigne. Got past them in 2 tries this time, so maybe I can!
60 FPS >>>>>>>> 30 FPS
fidelity graphics >> performance graphics
this is coming from someone who plays on one of those really nice LG OLEDs that’s straight up built to execute on the promise of what fidelity modes are supposed to offer
I agree with this statement, but again, I am not trying to discuss the merits of performance over fidelity, I am merely saying that I expected less compromise.
especially as an owner of an LG CX myself.
fuck maybe that god damn Series X is the way to go after all.
does the series x offer better resolutions @ 60 FPS?
it is, on paper, the more powerful machine, so in theory, yes. (we're talking about 15%)
(even though AC: Valhalla, as of right now, runs worse on Series X than PS5, and in DMC V they essentially trade blows)
