Oh god, this is still happening.

Maybe in couple more weeks cooler heads will prevail and we can finally start a real conversation about all of this rather than more hate, pot stirring, one sided reporting, broad generalization and navel gazing.

Looks like the store works again and allows shipping to Finland.

But fuck those shipping fees, nope nope nope.

"Unfortunately there is no Shipping Rate available for your destination and/or weight of your cart."

You don't ship to Finland anymore, or is the store broken?

Either way I guess I won't be ordering that shirt yet.

Also, you should bring the wizard shit back.

Does it affect adversely to videos when the source is 30fps like the Bayonetta trailer, but their settings expect 60fps?

This is not a streaming problem or site video player problem. It's also not a brand new problem as such, GB has always had some issues with video compression. But the brand new Bayonetta 2 trailer really just looks like absolute shit in so many spots that I couldn't ignore it anymore.

Just look at all those beautiful blocks.

I downloaded tr_bayonetta2_021314_4000 and a random 720p Youtube video of the same trailer. Guys, your compression is worse the Youtube compression. I mean you can see compression in the Tube video as well, but yours is just a complete mess. What's funnier is that your video is about 20 megs larger and has higher bitrate but still looks like absolute butt.

I don't know enough about video compression to suggest how to fix it though, someone else will have to figure that out. Here's what MediaInfo says the commanline is, in case some video wizard from the community knows more.

Encoding settings : cabac=1 / ref=5 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x1:0x131 / me=dia / subme=6 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=0 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=1 / 8x8dct=0 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=24 / lookahead_threads=4 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / bluray_compat=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=0 / weightp=0 / keyint=60 / keyint_min=25 / scenecut=0 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=40 / rc=abr / mbtree=1 / bitrate=4000 / ratetol=1.0 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=10 / qpmax=51 / qpstep=4 / ip_ratio=1.41 / aq=1:1.00
