Thread Anthem |OT| GaaS Effect
The game really clicked for me today. I was heaving fun before but reaching endgame and getting my first couple of masterworks made me love it! Not sure why people are complaining about mw frequency or interceptor viability. Made it to GM2 without any problems. Any more frequent and it would not feel special anymore. This honestly feels very much like Diablo turned into an amazing tps, I really hope they improve it with a "better" endgame activity similar to maps from poe. Varied environments would also be great, a bit of a shame that the heart isnt a big freeplay location, wasted opportunity. The only really really bad thing about the game are the loading screens, too many and too long. I really hope they make the forge cosmetics exclusive and let me select gear from a list without a loading screen at some point.

Thread Forza Horizon 4 demo is now live. Xbox and PC
This is correct, all skies are still captured but there is close to 4x the amount as there is a set of skies for each season. It is not supposed to look like that, and looks like a pretty bad bug. Im going to bring it up tomorrow but our engineers are probably already aware.

Thread Graphics Tech: Exclusive vs. 3rd Party
Man just stop talking what the fuck are you even on about? If we are only looking at visuals both HL2 and Crysis were industry defining games when they came out just like Last Of Us was... Yes art direction has been on point in Sony first party games for a while now but that does not dismiss that there were amazing looking games even before that or that there are games that run more impressive tech. As somebody who does this for a living I can tell you that the ratio of games we look at to see where tech is heading is roughly the same between first and third party with notable names like DICE, id, Insomniac and others catching attention every time they release something.

Aww thank you, its always nice to hear people appreciate the extra effort that goes into day/night cycles! Lighting is also quite different between the seasons as the sun arc changes quite a bit in the UK.

Thread Why are photo-modes always a day-1 patch update? (hidden dl strategy)
You clearly dont have a clue about game development. What goes on disk is set in stone long before you hit gold with the month (or moths) leading up to that point dedicated to fixing bugs not adding features. In fact features get cut during this phase if the quality isnt up to par! Ofc that doesn't mean that ppl stop working on those features but it does mean it doesnt go on the disc as the risk of introducing new bugs is too high. Instead low priority or online only features (like photomode) that didnt reach satisfying levels of quality in time go in the day one patch which usually has a deadline after the game has gone gold / is printed. No conspiracy or any of that bullshit, just smart planing to make sure you get the game the best it could be at launch with features that didn't make it on the disc as a patch. If this was 15 years ago you just wouldn't get those features at all (or a bug filled, mismanaged) game.

Thread Do you wear gaming related clothing in public?
Hm, you sure about this? "You are what you wear." - Boring and cheap. I just wear whatever I like, band shirt, plain, anime or gaming related. I could not care less if some people think its childish. If anything this usually draws attention of people Id actually like to interact with.

Thread Forza Horizon 4 is gonna have a weekly livestream showing every season - LIVE NOW
Use the oldest trick in the book. Go Offline and change the console time and date by a week. (No guarantee this actually works but I cant see why not).

Thread Forza Horizon 3 crosses 9 million players on Xbox One and PC
Nah, because Burnout Paradise never got a sequel that was even better. I doubt it, some critics are going to be way harsher after the smash hit 3 was, there are going to be more 4/10 than before.

Thread Nier Automata has "fake" HDR on Xbox. Please Devs, don't make this a thing.
I mean no auto exposure. But to me this makes no sense. This sounds like you got a bad TV that achieves higher nits by scaling the whole panel. You might be able to disable this in the settings but then it will probably never achieve the brightness necessary for something like the sun.

But movies do the exact same thing. Only difference would be that the exposure is usually shot by shot so it might not be as obvious to you? As long as we are watching content on a TV this will be necessary as the eyes can not adapt to a 2m rectangle in front of you when lets say watching a night scene in a well lit room. Without an exposure change you wouldn't be able to see anything.

Thread Nier Automata has "fake" HDR on Xbox. Please Devs, don't make this a thing.
I get what you are trying to say but images that are captured with a camera to show the difference HDR makes on a SDR screen make no sense. If anything this just proves that the tonemapper of whatever camera this was shot with is far superior to that of the TV / film (which honestly it almost always is). Most games are already created in a "HDR-Ready" way these days as PBR has become standard practice, but if there arent constant reviews in HDR during production details like light / glow intensity, material response in the highlights, grading, exposure etc. might not look good once you see the whole range. In addition to this the game needs different output curves for SDR and HDR, with the HDR curve never being the simple job everyone expects as there isnt a decent standard and the consumer needs enough control to make the image look good on his horrible 200nits TV. Another showstopper is exposure. While some studios have started to do fixed exposure in HDR I personally think that makes no sense and the exposure should be mastered in HDR and then offset in the SDR tonemapper. Something that obviously cant be done after the fact.

Thread Sea of Thieves |OT| A Rare Treasure
Wow, was just sailing through a giant storm solo on a sloop with lots of captain chests and skulls! This game has some super stunning moments and the atmosphere is top notch most of the time. I find a lot of the negativity for this game to be quite disheartening as it is often aimed at a lot of things that I enjoy very much and that have been absent from games for many years (no tutorials / trial and error, sandbox PvP gameplay, focus on atmosphere and world building without xp bars or rewards on every stone you find). Guess it was to be expected, I might stay out of these threads if it gets any worse and come back once the hype has died down and the rest of us are allowed to have fun.
