    Some games just have a very shitty HDR implementation - Destiny 2 comes to mind, it's mind boggling how they still haven't fixed that after all this time.

    I thought that was just me. I dived into D2 for the first time yesterday and could not get a consistent presentation.

    Panel variance? Different room lighting conditions? Are Vincent’s recs similar to, say, rtings.com’s?

    It's been like that since they added HDR back on last gen. They completely messed up the black point, so dark details on some levels - perhaps because they were old, recycled levels and not made with HDR in mind - just crushed all detail in dark scenes. You can easily check by turning HDR off, which reveals all that detail in dark scenes, at the cost of brightness and 'pop'. It can actually be a problem on some levels but I still leave HDR on. It's just incredible that Bungie has not fixed it since then. Then again, there are people dying every second so this is very much 'first world problems'.

    I am impressed how a MSG/frozen foods company can have such large impact on semiconductor industry.

    Tried this back when that video came out (I follow Vincent, he’s great) and it didn’t work then, like it doesn’t work now *shrug*

    Looks like other threads are more busy though, but yeah. Probably.

    I've finished (not plat) Demon's Souls and tried other older PS4 games, almost everything looks flat in terms of lighting, until I get used to the PS4 graphics again.

    Yep. In hindsight, Demon Souls being the first thing I actually played on PS5 has kinda spoiled everything I'm playing after. I probably should have eased myself into it with Bugsnax :lol:

    By that notion, you should have started with Marvel's Avengers...

    They all still look good but the way Dark Souls Remake lighting just makes all of those look less fuller, specially nightscenes I'm seeing but it's not really fair because Remake's closed design seems to give BluePoint so much room to ramp up lighting.

    I really like Death Stranding's environments (rocks,terrain) as it seems to compete with the dense look of Demon's.

    I love a lot of Valhalla's face 3d models.

    Guess it depends on the country? I hear here in the UK a lot of stock is coming on the 17th through the usual channels.
