    Nobody should be required to hunt this shit down, but evidently it was necessary because of the poor messaging...

    2 possible next-gen only titles...



    Bright Memory: Infinite isn't listed in having Smart Delivery just like those 2. So maybe it's not coming for current gen either?

    Not bad for 1 person. Kinda reminds me of BF1 contrasty/shiny art direction.


    Tight jeans.:wink2: looks neat.

    This will be my second time purchasing a dirt game(after being burned by the simmy nature of the original dirt on 360) but i feel its mandatory this time...im really glad Evolution Studios has come back in a big way, this is exactly what i wanted when i heard Codemasters had taken in a majority of their talent. Motorstorm was one of my favorite arcade racers of last gen, and driveclub is my favorite arcade racer of this gen...seeing those graphics i knew it had to be them without even knowing for sure. Driveclub is still the greatest looking racer of all time even as a launch PS4 title, and the spiritual sequel of Dirt 5 on PS5 will be right at home with me..the YT video even is rendered at 60fps which is crazy.

    Never did i think i'd see driveclubs visuals being able to be rendered at 60fps

    Scorn is about the only game that looks next gen ish now that I've watched everything in pristine 4k quality. The model detail is quite good. Hope it's not a terrible game like Agony is.

    I was wondering why it looked more like a street racer. I dunno. Could use more dirt than the flat roads there. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That said, I found Dirt 4 difficult to get into.

    It's sort of nuts Vampire 2 is coming. Long time waiting since Vampire the Masquerade. Never bothered with any of the vampire games since then though.

    I know this was a covid distributed show.
    But considering it wasn't live (or didn't need to be) why wasn't it edited in 4K decicent quality, with the games using the proper quality media.

    Watching the the 4K YouTube vids shows big difference in what was shown in show.
    So if that was done and not hype it up as gameplay reveals etc, would've gone down so much better.

    Hopefully they'll not do poor quality steam for next shows.

    And apologies for any collateral damage. It was hard to trace the divergence to any clean cut.

    I don't believe the fps, resolution and general quality of the stream was the issue for the masses.
    Sure the production quality was bad, including some really bad made green screening,

    but it was the content choice that disappointed.

    I'm saying the format of the show was fine
    Even the bad green screen that you put isn't such a big deal.
    But when you're showing games and the quality of the stream is that bad, that's an issue that regardless of the games should not happen.
    I've already on many occasions said that the game choices was not meant for first or final show imo.

    Could have amazing games and if the stream is that bad initial reactions aren't going to be what they should be. It's just a very bad look.

    Well, the initial reactions are pretty bad. The event has a worse dislike ratio than the PS5 reveal (and way less views in 24h).

    Pretty sure that's the default Microsoft Teams hide my background option. No chroma key it just detects a face and then traces what it believes is part of that person.

    I also wonder if the stream quality was at the YT end as they and Netflix have been asked to reduce bandwidth use during the lockdown.

    Pre encoded content is cached and probably co-located in isp networks so less of a strain compared to livestreams.

    I would say it seems rushed, they probably had Pre covid plans and are trying to do the best rendition of them now as a dispersed team using home Internet for part and consumer tech and tools.

    It's a shame and I think some simple extra info could have made this a whole lot more engaging and impressive.
