@devitiffany: Unsurprisingly, I would play the hell out of this.

@bladeofcreation: That quality is what they are aiming for. They are going for an early 3D game, without texture filtering, look. It looks weird when it's combined with more modern lighting and post-processing. Especially the lighting, the lighting can make some textures look better than they actually are which makes things look inconsistent. The game probably looks better if you play it with a low resolution.

I'm surprised how divisive the look of this game has been, but then I always loved the aesthetic of combining old graphical styles (pixel art, low-poly 3D) with modern lighting, particles, and post-processing, so maybe this is just very my shit.

@baillie: Pretty sure it's due to packet loss, but the problem is a bit tricky to troubleshoot the way we're sending these feeds to Jan.

@vinny The PS4 camera is stereoscopic. The PS5 is not. (As far as I know). I offered to send @brad a headset but he said he has a WMR one which made me cringe quietly. They are very out of date and the literal worst controllers on the market universally.

I still want to walk you through setting up a headset at your place with the setup you have and not having to move anything or make more room. It can be done.

I know the Explorer is far from the state of the art, but I find VR headsets are very much a case of you don't know what you're missing -- without a better headset and controllers to compare it against side by side, it does the job fine.

Brad waiting for like basically graphical upgrades for a tv show to watch it is the most Brad thing I've ever seen

Speaking of Hitman 3, I have been having alot of problems with that game. Visual bugs, progression bugs and also the stuff they talk about on the podcast.

Is anyone finding the game to look incredibly washed out? It's impossible to see any detail in some of the darker corners of Dartmoor, for example, just a flat ugly grey. I compared it on PS5 and Series X and it seems to be roughly the same on both. Setting the color space to full on the Xbox sort of helped, but of course that comes with its own set of problems on a television.

It's driving me nuts that you can't shoulder switch the camera in Hitman 3. I really hope that's just an oversight that they will patch soon, because the game feels really weird without it. I'm so used to it being a staple in Hitman 1 and 2 that I thought the L3 on my PS5 controller was broken.

Oh god me too, I almost brought it up but didn't want to sound too nitpicky. Why in the world they felt the need to remove that I have no idea, I used it all the time.

Wow, unless I'm mistaken this looks way crisper through the video archive than it did over the livestream.

I archive a local version of my streams at ~30Mbps bitrate before they get chewed up and sent to Twitch, so that higher quality version is what's getting posted to the site. Spent a ton of time in the March-May timeframe working out a video workflow at home, and that was one of the biggest benefits. Big shoutout to my NAS for all the heavy lifting on encoding and storage.

Did Yakuza get weirder, or is the marketing this time around just focusing more on the weird? This will be my first Yakuza game and I'm not sure what I'm getting into...

Looks great.

Kind of strange to hear these guys, who have been telling people to "just buy a PC" for years, being so nostalgic for the Playstation.

I've never said this and have talked repeatedly about how I still play games on consoles all the time, yet people still attribute this to me/everyone else on staff when it's by no means everyone's opinion.
