I read at Eurogamer that HALO5 pushes some impressive graphics on Xbox one x, but doesn't do native 4k. Most of the time it does resolution scaling. Still, they said H5's improvements on Scorpio were among the most profound they had seen to date.

They raised an interesting point for 1080p TV owners though, and that is that the 4K version of the game does render at more than 1080p all the time, something the original xb1 is struggling with. Since xb1x renders at even higher resolutions and would downscale to 1080p, you get free supersampling AA

Assassins Creed Origin is a very close second behind Brotherhood.

The second one was the best of the ones I played. A truly outstanding game.

Finished Torment. The ending left me hollow. I don't mean that I don't agree with how the story plays out, just that the story takes some very incohesive twists and turns in the last hour or so.
The old "pick an ending" switch mechanic is also used making most if not all of the choices you made in the game irrelevant.
Still, fun gaming with an unconventional RPG ruleset.

Started on Final Fantasy 15. This game is both very much a Final Fantasy and very much not a Final Fantasy game,
Voice acting is terrible. So it holds up to that lineage :up:

I played some PUBG last night and was reminded how bad someone can be if they don't play often.

But the 1.0 version of the game plays really well. The mechanics and interaction with in-game objects has definitely improved. However, the vaulting and climbing still needs a little work. All in all it's a nice game.

Engine has definitely improved. I've gained 20+ FPS and been able to pop up some gfx settings.

I talk like a pirate, so Black Flag was undoubtedly my favourite.

Myself, I'm playing a lot of The Division recently, which is a pretty damn good third-person loot'n'shooter with incredible graphics.
Very seasonal too.

It's been a long time since I've played either, so I honestly can't remember

I would've been playing PUBG if I had the rig to run it. When I see livestreams I find myself thinking that graphically it looks like something my laptop should be able to deal with, but then I realise it's people with SLI 1080's running in low detail settings because otherwise the frame rate is too low :rolleyes:

Nope. I run it at 1080p on a i7/1050 with most settings on high or ultra and pull 60fps.

Haha what?

Single 1080, 4790, Ultra in 1080p.


Its fine. No idea what scrub tier streamers you're watching. Pre upgrades I was playing with a 960 4gig. 1080 on ultra with shadows on medium and foliage on low. Was fine. Sounds like you need to just install it and not listen to shitty streamers?

Really though. This sounds a lot like the whiners who say VR is shit, or whatever, but dont own it. Steam has a refund policy brochief, play less than 2 hours, instant refund. Give it a shot.

Solo squads all day erry day! DROP SCHOOL SHOOT DUDES!

My i7 6700K and 980ti run it just fine and the game looks great.

I've put some hours into Kona lately.

I don't remember hearing anything about it when it was released. Having really enjoyed Firewatch, Kona is significantly more interactive and enjoyable.
