    Resident Evil Remake HD Remaster

    I decided to return to this after Remake 2 and my god, I really don't remember it looking as rough as it does. But now there is this... https://reupscaleproject.blogspot.com/2019/01/release-time_31.html What is it? Well, someone has ran REmake's backgrounds through upscaling AI (Gigapixel) and the end result is, for the most part, a noticeable improvement on the "remaster" job that Capcom did on the source material. Here's a torrent link for anyone who wants to grab it... magnet:?xt=urn:btih:2837C9DD593860C95FBCC9B7E7264BD21ABC07B8 (approx 8GB in size)

    Anthem - February 22nd

    I think I had this on PC too. It told me to look at them in the Cortex or something and it opened a website. I did eventually find the controller layout hidden away in the settings menu (see below*). As for the game itself, there is deffo some fun to be had underneath all the issues. The flying is fun and the combo system, though simple, is pretty satisfying and keeps the gunplay interesting enough. But it's not really doing anything to truly blow me away and the main thing keeping me from buying the full game at the moment is the hot mess its going to be when it releases. I'll be very surprised if they can turn it around before it comes out. -------------- *Not sure if this will be the same on a PS4 but I'll post it anyway in case it helps someone out. Go to Settings > Controls > Controller and you should be on a screen that looks something like this... Once here, press X(xbox)/Square(PS4) and it should bring up the controller layout...
  3. Go in cold. Sure, loads of us who played the original are getting a nostalgia hit but I think if given the choice, I'd wanna play this knowing nothing about the original RE2. It really is something special. And it's brutal on hardcore.
  4. I believe Gears4 supports Dolby Atmos. I don't recall this being this case for RE2 Remake. Your Atmos setup will likely upmix a 7.1 signal from the game and make it sound good but it won't be true Dolby Atmos. Hopefully the binaural option is a true Dolby Atmos substitute and not just virtual surround sound. Roll on Friday, I can't wait!
  5. I can't be totally certain without knowing what the options in-game will be but an educated guess is that you'll probably want the game set to 5.1 or 7.1 if some device (decoder in a headset) or software (Xbox dolby atmos app) outside of the game is doing the job of processing the sound into simulated 3D for your headphones. However, with binaural selected in-game, any dolby atmos spacial sound processing on top of that will likely mess the effect up.
  6. Sound recorded, or most likely treated in this case, to give a very convincing illusion of 3D sound through stereo headphones with no surround sound decoding needed. It should make the game very immersive! Here's an example of it. It only works with stereo headphones mind...

    This is pretty much how I watch any GDQ. I don't have the time to watch it live and its nice to be able to cherry pick the stuff that interests me.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I had my first ever taste of a Smash Bros game today. The series has always passed me by but I was asked if I wanted to join a few matches on the office Switch at work today and so decided to give it a go, mainly to try it out before deciding on whether to sell the unopened copy of Ultimate I was gifted at Xmas (pretty much zero interest in playing it). Well can I just say what an absolute load of fun this game is. I had a blast and even managed to win a round though I must confess, most of the time I had next to no idea what was going on. So when I got in from work, I tore the shrink wrap off my copy and got to playing some more. Link is an early favourite but I've still got a long way to go when it comes to the controls - I'm playing with a Pro controller and can't seem to settle on a good button layout. The default one initially felt weird to me but I will persevere with it I think. So yeah, wonderful game!

    Sh****st game you ever got bought

    Yeah. I was also looking forward to it due to a growing interest in music production back then and magazine previews making it sound really innovative. It was absolute arse.

    Was it that weird music game called Fluid on the PSOne?

    Sh****st game you ever got bought

    This. Followed closely by Brutal: Paws of Fury on the Mega CD. Sure, the hype for Rise can be used as an excuse for that game but I've no idea what I was thinking for the latter. Though I do remember looking at the back of the box in Tandy and seeing its impressive graphics....yeah, they were stills from the animated intro

    Subnautica - Ver 1.0 Out Now

    I finished this yesterday and oh man, what a great game! Probably the best survival game I've played so far I think. It started off super chilled and became pretty nerve-racking later on as I descended ever deeper into the alien ocean. I must admit that there were a few times where I lost the breadcrumb trail of the story and ended up feeling pretty lost on how to trigger the next story beat but those moments forced me into exploring more and more. Such as free falling into an abyss, watching my depth count rapidly tick higher and higher as the pressure increased; it becoming so dark that the lights on my PRAWN suit illuminated no more than a few feet in front of me and then suddenly hearing the echoing growl of something incredibly large looming too close for comfort. It was pretty creepy at times. And that exploration is so worthwhile despite the feelings of trepidation it instils, what with the ocean being littered with interesting/awe inspiring things to see and blueprints to discover. I always felt like I had something to work towards which, for me at least, is what a lot of survival games fail to inspire in me - I think part of that is due to always feeling somewhat vulnerable in Subnautica regardless of the increasing amounts of helpful technology I found at my disposal. I never reached a point where I felt so overpowered that the game world was no longer dangerous. So yeah, well worth checking out. Especially if you have a PC that can run it cos its free at the moment.
