4K gaming: what can PC learn from PlayStation Pro?

manuel_garcia

12 months ago

Ok, trying to fiddle with this on my PC. Connected up to my Onkyo amp via a HDMI 2.0 port, running into an LG C6 OLED. HDCP is fine, 4K@60 and HDR all work. However...

The option to perform GPU scaling for lower resolutions simply isn't there. The Nvidia control panel just lists Display Scaling and nothing else in the drop-down.

Is this a problem with Nvidia drivers now, or a limitation of HDMI 2.0 and HDCP combination forcing specific resolutions? I can go down the route of trying to force a custom EDID for a different monitor, but I don't want to lose the 4K@60 and HDR functionality if I do.

Anybody run into anything similar when fiddling with this stuff?

And... this is now Rab's final piece for EG following the complaint and resultant edits.

Can I be the first to say that's a huge fucking shame.

If nothing else, the debate sparked by this has been more refreshing than anything I've read on gaming sites in weeks.

Nintendo responds to PETA Mario pro-fur claim

manuel_garcia

What angers me more than anything about PETA's idiocy is that it reflects negatively on everybody that's a vegetarian or remotely perceived as being pro-animal rights.

They're a bunch of PR-baiting tools, and I hope I speak for the majority of us non-meat eaters when I say they can fuck right off.

Huge FIFA 12 PS3 and Xbox 360 patch out today

Brilliant, so they've taken out the one element of Online Clubs that actually made people play a passing game rather than the kamikaze dribbling of last year. Back to the "speedy player against inept defensive AI = win" formula then. Bah.

Oh well, the last month was fun anyway. Maybe they'll stick to their convictions next season.

Halo: Reach

Excellent review. My own reaction swung wildly from subtle disappointment to slack-jawed wonderment every couple of levels, so it's good to see somebody else had the same conflicted experience.

Its so, so close to raising the bar again, but not quite. The singleplayer campaign was the most fertile ground for making those improvements, and whilst they nailed the aesthetics and the level design, the characterisation is just too bland to give the story any weight.

Some of the individual levels are absolutely top-drawer though, and easily up with the best of the series, if not the best.

Limbo review

manuel_garcia

8 years ago

It's a lovely, lovely game. The question of value is entirely subjective I suppose, as I'm guessing the people that worry about brevity would still go out and buy an 8-hour 'full-length' game for £30-35 without questioning.

If somebody asked me if I'd pay 1200 points for Portal, I'd undoubtedly say yes. The same goes for this. It's only a few hours, but it's of a consistently brilliant quality, and well worth the spend.

Our first look at PES 2011

It's the animation, isn't it? I can appreciate all the technicality they put in, and good lord I used to love PES like no other, but that engine shows its age more with every passing lick of paint.Fresh start Konami. Take the time and do what EA did with FIFA 07. It's the only way to rescue what little dignity is left for the series.

Are people so afraid of an article because it doesn't stick to the usual 'intro-gameplay-grafixxx-conclusion' formula? Come on!

This is EG, and that sort of writing is exactly why most people read the frontpage here rather than head over to the other monolithic sites that are often completely devoid of personality. In any form.

I'd love to read more stuff like this, and long may it continue.

Guitar Hero II

Bought it today. Top game, big fan of GH and GHII already, but the whammy bar on mine is completely screwed even after the various fixes attempted. Mate of mine has the same issue as well. Arg!

Thing is, its only a small difference so anyone not versed in the PS2 games will doubtless not know the difference anyway, but for everyone else its there and incredibly annoying.

Stay away from batch 95055.

Its a different engine entirely. The Xbox360 version is a totally different beast to the PS2 and PC versions.

Whether its better is a matter for debate, and one it is likely to lose unfortunately.

The in-game tweaks do give it a bit of fresh air though. Passes zip around quicker, slide tackling is much improved, and they got rid of the silly 'bouncy' animation when two players are running for the ball, which was the most annoying thing about Fifa 07 to be honest.

The card collecting game is hella addictive for anyone thats ever had a Panini sticker album back in the day.
