    This is why i questioned streaming live. If it was live.
    It all could've been pre recorded with proper quality game streams.
    I watched it on mixer (I think), maybe that was worse than youtube?

    Given covid, I think this format was actually pretty good overall. It was mostly games with the odd conversation.

    I'm not talking about game content, just the format and stream quality.

    Thought these videos from Tim Schafer about Psychonauts 2 development post COVID19 might be interesting...





    It definitely shows the lock-down effect on game development.

    Maybe he hates the Ravens and found out Lamar Jackson was going to be on the cover of Madden 21. :yep2:

    I wonder how they decided on latin alphabet for Chorus. It just reads like Chorvs without any other context to dispel the ambiguity.

    Its not just that , both companies have spent a lot of money and time to off load processes from the cpu to other hardware. So not only is the cpu many times faster but some of the tasks that previously were done on the cpu are either removed completely or reduced greatly

    Looks nice, but can't say I'm a huge fan of twin-stick shooting/aiming...

    I thought I was looking at Alien Nation (link not included as it's on a Sony console).

    To be fair, the visuals on cutscenes etc. are a more pronounced improvement. It's also listed on Steam, and I see XBOne listed on the publisher's official page, so I guess it is cross-gen.

    Here's a better view showing the detail in the game:

    seems like they sort started shadow dropping random stuff, I'm not sure if this is going to get coverage, but for any content creators here:

    seems to be a lot of random drops today. Not sure if we should consolidate it somewhere. A lot of smaller AA titles will get no coverage this way.
