  1. That sounds like the article from rtings I read. Problem is I’ve turned that trumotion thing on they’re on about which they claim sorts it and I still have the stuttering issue. It makes it a lot better but doesn’t fix it completely. Makes it better while adding artifacting. Does it for anyone else?
  2. As some of you know I got a beautiful LG OLED B8 55” TV a couple of months ago. It’s stunning. However Not too long after getting it I noticed on certain panning shots or fast images the motion stutters and skips a bit. I can actually see the frames of some scenes. If it’s small object it gets a bit of artefacting/pixelation around the object too. Now that I’ve seen it, I’ve become very very sensitive to it and it’s really ruining the experience now and become very distracting. Ive done some googling and seen a lot of other people complaining about the same thing. But also a lot of people saying it’s fine and that everyone sees it differently. I’ve also seen a couple of reports that some screens are just better than others and after a few returns they’ve managed to get one that doesn’t do it... I just wondered if theres anyone in here with the same TV who’s having the same problems and/or if they managed to sort it? BTW it’s mainly with films (24fps seems to cause he biggest issues) and programmes. Games actually seem fine if they have a solid frame rate whether 30 or 60. They do look significantly worse if the frame rate alters though. This is easily one of he most extravagant purchases I’ve ever made and it’s sooo disappointing to have this happening. Especially since I’ve never had this issue before and I’ve never spent more than £350 on a TV before. So frustrating. Especially since when it’s all working right and in 4K HDR the picture is unreal. Halp!

    The Hot Topic Returns

    Resident Evil 2. Amazing game. MK11 could have been up there but they fucked it.
  5. Cheaper than a Fortnite skin.

    Dead Cells

    Well done @Hendo!! Ive still not managed to beat this, really need to get back into it, I was a slither off beating the last boss last time I played but got too excited, panicked and got greedy and fucked it up! Closest I ever got! Only reached the last boss 4 times too so hard to learn his patterns. Not touched it since lol.
  7. The boost mechanic is what makes this game so good IMO. It’s much more fun and involving than just holding drift and waiting for different levels of boost like in every other Kart racer. The track design is fantastic too. Surprised how well I remember some of them! The adventure mode is great and this is one of the very few racing games where chasing time trial times is actually compelling. Finding the CTR letters can be a right bastard sometimes and makes you learn the levels better and teaches you where shortcuts are as well. Just really smartly designed. As for loads, since the update and clearing my cache it has got a lot better and I can put up with it now but they’re still pretty long. Not worth paying a bit more and swapping to the PS4 version now though.
  8. The limited run box art is always great. The Senran game looks.... Wow. Must buy it!
  9. The chain boosts are hugely satisfying when you get a few together. Love it. Had a update yesterday, made the loads a lot better. Only takes about 3-5seconds to get in a race now. But at the end when before the podium screen it can take between 10-35 seconds. Strange. How are people finding it on PS4? Think I might need to clear my cache as well, Horizon has been taking a bit longer to start up lately too.
  10. Where do you find that information? I always find out too late. Was planning on playing Shadow Complex again but not going to have time now. Be better to have a bit more notice than what the Xbox store says.

  12. I had no idea about this. Thanks
  13. Haha not quite, small bit of research and it turns out it just loads fast on PS4 when compared to Switch. 40 Seconds (!!!) on Switch compared to 20 seconds on PS4. I’m sure it’s near 20 on Xbox too. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/kotaku.com/crash-team-racing-nitro-fueled-is-a-whole-lot-of-game-1835709601/amp
  14. @MaryokutaiUnfortunately I’m always swapping between games so that’s a no go. Hopefully will get used to it after a bit. @one-armed dwarfYea that’s the one. There’s 2 hop/slide buttons. You press and hold one to slide then tap the other one to boost during your slide. Best option I can find on Xbox is to have LB and A, so I’m using A to drift and tapping LB to boost. Holding LB/L1 doesn’t feel right to me. It’d just feel a lot more natural and comfortable for me if it was on A and LT instead. So I could drift using LT (like all over racers I play) and then tap A to boost. Ive just read this loads really fast on PS4... Might have to research that, if it does I’ll be selling me Xbox copy and getting that. Switch is meant to be terrible for loads too.
  15. Prefer the pad and games perform better on the X. That outweighs lineage for me. Speaking of controls, another slight annoyance, can’t find a way to map boost/slide to the left trigger. There’s only 2 configurations with no option to change any buttons. It maps to Left Bumper. The default is ‘A’ as accelerate (bleurgh) and left bumper as boost and the second configuration is RT accelerate (better!) and LB and A as boost/slide. Not a deal breaker but annoying and uncomfortable.
