Hang on... does this mean they fixed the glaringly bad low tick rate server issue then? Otherwise how can a competative game running at 15hz be recommended?

How to configure gaming HDR on Samsung 4K TVs

TigerX81

1 year ago

@Lexical Have you got HDR+ switched on by any chance? That takes an SDR source and tries to make it HDR. I'd be surprised if it did a good enough job to convince you the two were the same but it might be that good.

@peterfll I've seen it mentioned in other places that the Sony TVs that do HDR10 have pretty bad latency making them not ideal for gaming. I believe they are 100ms slower than the Samsungs.

The update about the Samsung KS7000 had two mistakes. The KS8000 is not the US name for it, it's a different model altogether which is also available is the EU.

The dimming is also local, not global as the article states.

Ubisoft promises to support Rainbow Six Siege for a second year

@StevoPirate I think you've got the wrong end of the stick. All the operators are available without paying extra. All the weapons are available too. You can pay for things like weapon skins, in game currency boosters, outfits and the season pass gives you all the operators unlocked. But I've just grinded and got all but three operators without paying a penny since buying the core game.

We've requested comment from Bethesda about Soule's disapproval and claim that the original scores aren't used.
Shouldn't you have waited for Bethesda to respond before posting the article then? Sounds a bit shoddy not coving the story from more than one angle.

Battlefield 4: Final Stand review

TigerX81

3 years ago

Wouldn't it be cool if the readers of a website could vote for a second opinion of a game review. Get another journalist to write their opinions. We're all capable of visiting other sites and getting other opinions but it'd be a nice interaction. The website would benefit from more clicks too.

On the subject of Final Stand. I find it odd that the review lacks any information about the community features. The hunt for tags and the secret lift. I found it very very cool if just a tad frustrating. It's great to see that relationship between the developers and the community and should be applauded.

Ubisoft explains why Watch Dogs on PC contains hidden graphics files

TigerX81

4 years ago

@Nephirion a decent dev will add all the bells and whistles and then downgrade till they hit their performance target for each platform. Check out game engines like Unreal, Frostbite and Crytek for examples on how to do it right. Parity makes no sense and is harder to achieve.

PC gamers are always balancing performance against visual quality. Why remove options and justify by saying they were worried about performance? The other reasons make little sense either. Ubi aren't telling us the whole truth here I think.

Battlefield Hardline trailer reveals October release date

TigerX81

@elfez have you tried BF4 with the latest patch or the CTE? The netcode has improved and looks like it will continue to improve in future.

Frostbite is a very very capable 'next-gen' engine.

BF4 was a rushed hunk of junk when it came out. EA were clearly trying to cash in on the new console releases and put pressure on DICE. DICE are still to notch developers though.

Visereal are good at Single Player. This should easily be the best SP Battlefield if they've been given enough creative freedom by EA.

How many people here realise this is being developed by visceral? All these comments about releasing a new game when the old one is broken seem a bit off to me. Visceral have done some great things, how about not tarring then with another developers faults?

Admittedly it's got Battlefield in the title and the Multiplayer has some Dice help, but all this negativity is rather depressing.

@Silverflash if you read the progress reports you can tell the staff themselves are enthused about the project. Money is obviously not the only desire driving them forward. I believe we should give them the benefit of the doubt. They have given us something tangible already which is much sooner than a typical project.

@peterfll I'd imagine it's the weight of two smartphones (without the batteries in) with a wiimote strapped on. Or roughly the same as a pair of NVGs.

@Dizzy I'd rather they took their time and got it right first time than rush it and end up having to release a Rift 2.0 shortly after to make up for problems with the original. I'd be happy if they waited and just released the 4k version first I imagine that'll be too much to hope for.

I'm worried about this. I love the concept but surely being able to buy ships for $250 will mean it's pay to win? Either that or pay not to grind which I'm tired of. I really hope not as this could be awesome!
