I'm hoping you lot may be able to help me. I've moved house recently and my computer is in the front room with my TV now.
I want to play around with PC gaming on my TV but having some issues.
I've purchase a 1HDMI in 2 HDMI output so my PC Monitor & TV will be displaying the same image from my PC. When the image appears on the TV it overscales it even though it is capable of displaying 1080p images at a 16:9 ratio. Granted this TV is very old and it crops my Wii U wrong as well.
I know I can force crop it on Nvidia Control panel but then that will crop the PC monitor display which I don't want to do every time I move from one device to another.
Am I going the wrong route here by using this 2 HDMI output splitter or do you think my TV is just an old model that doesn't automatically scale it correctly?
I'm currently looking at this TV to replace my old one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-TX-42A400B-42-inch-Widescreen-Freeview/dp/B00IOQ5XC2/ref=pd_ybh_1
I've recently finished my first play through of the game this week and so was writing my thoughts up on the game.
During play I got completely stuck on how to progress the story and was seeing if I was the only one who got stuck at the same places. Did you get stuck somewhere else?
Here were my three areas.
1. Returning to the Miracle trainer to open the way to Huntsman Corpse.
This threw me completely since I was stuck at the three ruin sentinel boss fight and wanted to go somewhere else desperately. I decided to retrace my steps though all the previous areas to discover she had moved there and would open that door.
2. Burning the windmill
This I wish had been more obvious, I was playing on the day the servers were being buggy so had no soul summing messages and ended up wasting so many healing items on that boss. No NPC hinting or anything. I did feel thick once I figured it out but that took a good few hours.
3. The King Ring Doors
After receiving the king ring I returned to the queen and she kept saying go to the throne room which I did, killed the two watchers down there and didn't know where to go next. I returned to the queen who kept saying go to the throne room and the emerald lady wasn't being helpful either.
After exploring all previous areas for around three hours I weakened and checked online for the first time.
Do you think the game should of telegraphed these a bit more?
Dark Souls 2 is one of the game that will need to establish itself before real reviews can be done. I think when the original Dark Souls came out they weren't many reviews to hit since not everything had been discovered yet and the covenants weren't fully understood at the time and how to even activate them.
I can see a lot of previews coming out but not full conclusions right away and this will affect more games as well in the future such as the latest mmo's & other games that have a multiplayer bleed in effect such as Destiny & the Grid.
I'm going to be buying this day one anyway, I enjoyed the last two very much and want to experience it the same time as everyone else, even if it is good or bad.
