Doesn't matter how you slice it and try to dance around it, the fact is it is STILL dropping frames.

The fact it's not 30 fps locked OR 20 fps locked means it is therefore not a locked frame rate. For it to be such it'd have to be a set frame rate with no fluctuations in either direction - anything else simply isn't a locked frame rate.

I try explaining these things to you but you don't listen.

Anyway back to Zelda or something.

I do understand that a locked framerate is locked throughout the game, but in this (botw) case, the 20fps sustains way too long to be deemed as ''locked'' as DF has quoted. I dont think they should have mentioned that terminology but the 20 fps sustains way too long to completely ruin the game.

But then again, i do see myself playing the game regardless because im a Japan/zelda/nintendo fan too, i appreciate the heart Japanese devs put in their games.

Yeah if the frame rate is that bad then that is disappointing but hey I have seen loads of games score a 9/10 or above where the performance sucked which never got mentioned.

That's the problem with under powered consoles this gen, fantastic games are ruined by bad frame rates or gameplay which just is not smooth. Even on PC this can be an issue despite 60 fps if it is a bad port job so even that platform isn't wholly exempt.

Firmware update 4.5 is out! Boost mode is now very real. Vast majority of older games that have not had a pro patch will now run much better once you enable boost mode. Early reports coming in that Rainbow Six Terrorist hunt has went from 30fps and under with screen tearing to over 80fps and no screen tearing! Boom!

Other early reports:
Dark Souls 2 is silky smooth, and traveling between bonfires is noticeably quicker.

Sleeping Dog seems pratically flawess in the crowded and bigger streets. A quick test but on base ps4 those areas was a nightmare.

BF4 has been shown to be one of the most improved. Dropped to 27 fps on base mode, drops to 58fps with boost in worst case scenarios.

The Witcher 3 - Flawless



PS4 Pro is a beast! 8-)

Credit where due boost mode sounds promising.

They just need to add a down sampling option on all games now when using a 1080p tv.

I'm picking up an LG B6 OLED tomorrow 8-)

I hear they tend to not get as bright as LED and input lag is a little higher, but overall it's one hell of a TV.

I got the Samsung KS8000 4K TV in anticipation for Scorpio...but. QLED TV's are coming so maybe I could've held back.

Pretty much only have base PS4 so it'll be a hell of a leap later this year. Fingers crossed Red Dead 2 doesn't get delayed!

I initially bought the 55" Sony XD93 which is a really nice tv, having done some research I preferred it over the KS8000. I friend of mine has the KS8000 so luckily I was able to make a decision by seeing both in action.

My father in law as a 65" B6 OLED so I took my Pro round there and it was truly impressive. People mention the brightness levels and I really don't see the issue, the set itself had the brightness etc set at only halfway and it looked amazing, more pure than what I've seen from both tv's above.

The blacks just look so impressive as well, and the B6 is currently going for £1799, Sky Q and an LG SH7 sound Bar. The sound on the XD93 & KS8000 isn't great overall without a sound bar unfortunately.

It's only £1799 with a free LG SH7 soundbar, you get Sky Q as well for a year.

The XD93 is nice but if I buy a soundbar, which is definitely needed, then I may as well pay the extra couple of hundred for the B6. It's a real nice tv, the Pro looks glorious on it.

That's a good price! I'll probably have to wait till next year to get a new TV though :cry:. Sony are releasing an OLED TV this year too right? It'll be interesting to see if they can compete with LG in terms of quality on this front.

The funny thing is the Sony A1 OLED tv's are made by LG, you just get the Sony added features and technical options mixed in. I believe the A1 will be about 3k, so all the more reason to get the B6 as that'll be fine for a good 4-5 years.

Just got my new micro SD card in the door today from amazon. Decided to get a 128gb since it was only another 15 euro from a good 60gb. :mrgreen: Moving over ridiculous amount of music as we speak

Good game fallout 4, spent easily 80+ hrs doing side and main quests (until i got access to the institute and some missions around it). The base building is really fun which i mostly spent time in and i, contrary to popular consensus, quite like Boston. Abysmal dialogue system though, so-so story.

However, i still love fallout 3 and its desolate-ness, New vegas just completes the love circle. Although 4 tries many new things, i still think 3 and new vegas are the goat both in story and level design regard.

Never could get into Fallout games, but yet I loved Oblivion and I liked Skyrim....could never put my finger on quite why that was that I didn't like Fallout. :shock:

Hoping there's a new proper Elder Scrolls game announced this year, we are due one! Skyrim was the last one in late 2011. It's been over 5 years.

What's been everyones favourite game on this gen of consoles so far? I'm a PS4 owner, my favourite so far has been The Witcher 3. That game is phenomenal and one of my all time favourites. Couldn't get enough of it. Hopefully another game is released in that universe, even if it is the end of Geralts Adventure. I also finished Rise of the Tomb Raider recently and while it is a good game, it didn't capture me like the first. The story and location didn't hook me in. I also felt MGS5 was underwhelming. I don't think it needed to be an open-world game, the story was weak, which was surprising given this is what the franchise is known for.

I can't wait for the Spider-Man game and Red Dead Redemption 2. Hopefully see more of these in the coming months.

Been an amazing gen so far! For me the stand out is certainly Horizon Zero Dawn - Absolutely incredible game and easily the best graphical game to date. Im 38 hours in and only 49% complete. Usually with single player games i'd of lost interest by now

Other top games worth a mention: Dirt Rally, PCars, Res Evil 7, Doom, Inside, Hitman, Bloodborne, Outlast

Major disappointments this gen: Fifa, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rainbow 6, The Division

Feminist Sweden in action. One chicken necked migrant overpowering 3 women, 1 male submits attacker then ordered away by feminists so the progressiveness of women being attacked by a non-swede can continue, Swedish 'man' in background with guard dogs runs scared. LMAO
