new thread, new reminder to play the last guardian to completion because you have to be a real sour person with a burning hatred for ueda's beautiful japanese mind to not love the gently caress out of the game warts and all.

tlg took me 9 hours but i could have done it in 7 if i knew about 1 finnicky puzzle ahead of time.

theres a point where you are in water and trico is looking through a hole in the cieling at you.

you can not advance until you do the puzzle in the far corner of the room instead of in the obvious spot right under him because he is programmed to drop a chunk of the ceiling before helping you but you have no way to know this until you get it right.

Since people want Smart TV talk, how is the input lag on the KS8000 when using HDR? Seems a lot of TVs introduce a lot since they require you to be in a movie setting rather than game setting. Was hoping to wait for the OLED's to drop to the $1500 range in a few years, but just bought a house and the 40" I have for the basement is going to be too small. May go for a 65" KS8000 or the like (though would prefer something in the 70" range).

Would like to get the new tv sooner and upgrade to a PS4 Pro when FF7 remake comes out (hoping for a special edition FF7 PS4 Pro).


edit: Also, i haven't play Bloodborne yet because I wasn't a fan of Dark Souls, but will give it a shot. UC4 is the most "must play" game I have played on the PS4 so far since most of the other games I have enjoyed have been on PC and/or XB1 as well (DQ Builders, DQ Heroes, FF15, GTA5, etc.). UC4 is definitely not overrated.

ks8000 is best in class on lag. they patched the firm ware a few months ago to bring hdr in line with sdr so there's only a few ms of difference now, whereas earlier this year there was 10-15ms added.

some tvs are so bad with it though that you are right to be cautious. i've seen reviews showing like 70-100ms of lag introduced by hdr

If you wanna game on an OLED and care about input lag I'd wait a year or two

The KS800 is just the best bang for your buck by far. There's better options i assume but probably at a 75% price increase

https://www.rtings.com is great and has all the info you'd probably need

yeah the only good oleds are by lg and sony and they are up there

also oled has issues with gaming in lag and also some models have a weird form of burn in that's not actually a big deal since its temporary but can get annoying if you have a hud on screen all the time when you game and then switch to watching something else i think tv makers care about gaming last in a developing technology. Go LED. just avoid LCD 4k screens because they can no actually display the hdr they claim to have. the ks8000 probably isn't the best hdr experience but god drat its impressive. TLG looks so loving good with it.

There are a LOT of 1 star reviews on Amazon. 15% or so which is very high for a "best" item. Apparently there is a common problem where the bezel and the screen separate due to heat issues.

gamemode looks very impressive. you don't need all that processing on a native high res image. most cable boxes are still outputting 1080i and lower so its nice to add sharpness and other poo poo if you like to make it look better on the screen

Is performance an issue on the normal PS4 already? Are there even demanding scenarios to be had on consoles? And is the only visual upgrade selective 4K support?

Yes Visuals get pushed over performance on consoles
Yes many console games have areas of bad performance
No developers have lots of freedom in what they put.

If Sony weren't trying to push their bullshit half gen revisions and actually bothered to certify games properly, there'd be no problem getting games running well on PS4.

Cert is more for checking that the button prompts say the right thing and the game doesnt crash in ways that break security of the console. Quality assurance is on the devs for all platforms and performance issues were all over ps3 which was just one console

mafia 3 got a pro patch to native 1440p with super sampling for 1080p screens
improved motion blur effects and shadows
fixed frame pacing now on all ps4 models
the rough frame tearing from base hardware is fixed on pro but trade off is 2-3fps drops in scenes that have alpha effects out the rear end like the klan rally with all the smoke and fog. dev got too greedy. still a solid 30 in regular gameplay

Is Diablo 3 supposed to be a cakewalk? It won't let me turn up the difficulty any more until I get an unspecified number of additional skills and legendary items, but the ones I have already are making this game far too easy. I went through the first 30 levels or so last night and was just sorta bored by the end of it.

it costs to much and has some crazy decisions in it like mp wipes are hard game overs while single player wipes have continues (but you lose leader board access).

so basically you can't just have a friend over to try it out casually cause you won't get past level two unless they train.

Reserved them for store collection and then measured the trunk/back seat of my car and realised the 55" TV wouldn't actually fit in there.

the minigun guys are annoying cause you need to be close to them when they die so that you can finish them off so you need to kill everyone around them first while they shoot at you then they are only vulnerable for a few seconds and the kill prompt is very finicky so i miss it occasionally and have to start over.

game also crashed on me too tonight. really weird.

I'm lolling at the idea of Sony being technically competent enough to implement name changes.

they already have real name support able to change your in game name to people that mark each other as close friends. they could have added alias support at any point and made it toggle to be visible to all users

they didn't because there's no money in making that change i guess. there is a mountain of money to be made if they untangle their database knot and sell the ability to change your account name and i'm not surprised the going is slow there.

point is they already have name changes possible in the current firmware but you can only make them appear to certain friends so its pointless and they suck
