    Should Series X not be higher than 4K if we scale the GPUs and the resolution from Series S?

    Great scaling for the Series S tho, 120fps at 1080 is a nice result.

    They were talking about 6K and 8K in an earlier interview, so maybe it's just a dev time/schedule thing.

    Tomas Sala was on this week's Major Nelson * podcast, about 9 minutes in. Talks a bit about his background, how he works etc.



    * Worth a subscription I feel. He does have some good interviewees.

    He was also on XboxEra today. About a 1 hour 20-minute interview/let's play. Haven't got a chance to listen to it yet...

    Tomas Sala talk about development. He defines being a solo developer as being like a solo artist, in that it's about a singular vision (as he namechecks the people who've helped).

    I'm about 2.5 hours in and enjoying it. It's a charming game with a nice aesthetic. I'll report back after I get further in.

    Runs great on One X.
    Complex and jerky control scheme. Crimson Skies this is not.
    Steep proficiency curve, I imagine.
    Includes photomode (that's equally jerky). Couldn't manage to line up a good shot without tremendous effort.

    I think it is, or just coincidentally my console was pulling down an update for it when I turned it on.

    Have to say my first impressions were that I didn't like the controls. I love the look of it but not inclined to return. Am I not giving it fair dues?

    Yes. Change from inverted flight view and see if that helps. (or, for that matter, stick with it for 30 minutes in multiple combat loops)
