  1. I really love the design of the Zumwalt, though. Think it looks great and very futuristic.
  2. I'm torn on it. On the one hand it doesn't have a mushroom drive that makes your space ship flip in position and teleport to god knows where. On the other hand... 213374U kinda points it out. So far I'm also at "huh, better than expected", but I can already feel the stupid. I bet you there will be the same old super-people who can do everything and there will be lots of cringe. If not from Picard himself, then his younger surrounding cast that will carry all the action sequences. I really want this to be good, but Kurtzman ... urgh. Now I'm wondering if and when we are getting The Orville season 3.
  3. So I did some more tests with my TV -- turns out the input lag becomes worse depending on the screen resolution. Now I'm not sure if it's actually the resolution itself, or the performance of the game, because obviously if I reduce the resolution, I'm also gaining more fps, while increasing the resolution reduces my fps. This would explain why MGS5 runs so well... this game is well optimized, I simply have very good fps while playing. If I crank up the resolution to 4k, I also get noticeable input lag. I've also tested Dishonored - Death of the Outsider, which also runs pretty well. For Hollow Knight, I've read that lots of folks have input lag with it... apparently it's simply the Unity engine. HOWEVER, the game runs perfectly fine on my pc monitor... the moment I move it to the tv, it's all crappy. But maybe it's still all related? I have good fps on my pc, but because it's "local" so everything is fine. Once I move it to the TV, there's additional strain due to the 12m HDMI cable and the lag becomes noticeable. The Unity-engine theory could also be supported by The Long Dark, which uses the same engine and *also* has noticeable input lag on my TV. Also to note: I have yet to see any screen tearing, so I'm assuming the input waits for the image to be "complete" before showing it, and thus naturally lag is produced? I'm a 100% noob in this area, so I dunno if that's a thing or not. Just a wild guess. Also to note2: When I'm writing about input lag, I don't mean 10 second delays. It's barely a second, but it's just so obvious.
  4. Not a surprise, but what exactly does "more dire than" mean?
  5. Yeah, I did some fiddling with it. Turns out the bright edges were screen sharpening. It didn't happen while moving, because the game had motion blur activated, so the sharpening effect obviously didn't look as bad then. I've set it to 0 and now it looks fine. I've also found out that my mainboard / CPU can't do 4k in 60hz on HDMI 2.0 - so the picture was automatically in HDMI 1.2. I've reduced the screen resolution down to 1080p. It works with HDMI 2.0 now and generally looks more fluid. However, there is still a problem with input lag - MGS5 runs pretty well and I hardly notice anything, but in Hollow Knight it's plain obvious. The game feels sluggish and slow, which sucks hard. Not sure if there is anything else I can do to improve this... It's weird, because on my old TV it was running fine and that one already supported 1080p ... so what exactly is causing the input lag now? The (fiber optics) HDMI cable is almost the same length as my old one... probably 2 meters longer, but I doubt 2 meters make or break the experience?!
  6. I'd probably install Ubuntu. From all the ones I tried, it felt like the most accessible.
  7. Saw a review on YouTube about Another Life and that killed all interest I had in the show. Better not to waste any time with it.
  8. I've tried playing some MGS5 on my new TV (via HDMI cable from my PC) and noticed some odd behavior: Whenever I'm standing still and don't move, the whole screen seems to sharpen a lot. Tried to make a screenshot of it, but there it isn't visible, so I'm assuming the TV is doing some weird post processing on (mostly?) still images. It's pretty ugly, because everything gets bright, white-ish borders. Does anyone around know about this? My old TV wasn't doing that... then again, my old TV also wasn't a 4k one.
  9. True. But just thinking about the next time I have to move somewhere else stresses me out, because this thing is so huge and apparently quite fragile. It's one of the reasons why I try to buy as little physical stuff now as possible... the more you have, the more moving the house becomes a pain in the arse. Especially if the next one might be smaller than the current one (I've already downgraded and had to fit in A LOT into a small space). A part of me wishes to just throw away half the stuff I have, because I rarely use it anyway. But there's memories attached to everything, and it would pain me a lot.
  10. My new 55" tv arrived. It's... pretty awesome. Need to rewatch a bunch of movies now. Fury Road, Interstellar, etc... it's like being in my own little cinema.
  11. There was a jihad or something? Only thing I'm pissy about is the exclusives-thing on PC. Don't care about the rest.
  12. Yeah, sounds pretty intriguing, tbh.
  13. So I just read about McConnell because of the impeachment stuff and man, it's really infuriating how such people stay in power. This guy even compared himself Darth Vader once. Would be funny if it weren't so sad. Feels like you really can't do anything, though, because if it's not him then some other criminal will be there.
  14. Is not perfect tv, but still the best Star Wars I have seen in years. Also I love listening to these two ripping into Star Wars.
  15. I did. Played for a few hours then quit, because the flame was already out and it almost bored me to death. Certainly the least buggy Stalker game I've played, but it was too late.
