      Update on themes   07/30/2017

      Thanks to some hard work from @Emblazon, the themes should all be functioning as expected again, with some enhancements/cleanups that he's put in. Please let us know if you spot anything that still seems to be amiss so that we can take care of it.

  1. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    Yeah but I'm also a big fan of the classic Sonic games who still replays them to this day.
  2. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    ok, well now you guys are just overselling it. I'm going to go into the game overhyped and be disappointed.
  3. We didn't evolve from the apes that are around today. The apes that are around today share a common ancestor as humans. The different species branched off and went in different evolutionary directions a long, long, long. long time ago. Edit: maybe you were joking when you said that, given the thread you posted it in. Sorry if I'm taking your in-jest comment too sincerely.
  4. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    The beauty of classic Sonic games is that there's not right or wrong answer to that question. Genesis Sonic games have always had a lot of secret places hidden within their levels that you'd only see if you took the time to explore, carefully jump to places that are off the beaten track, drill through walls, jump over spikes into a pit that might not be a pit, etc. But some people will prefer to play by finding the shortest, fastest route through the levels. Good Sonic games can be played and enjoyed either way.
  5. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    The Genesis Sonic games still hold up today. I still play them. My kids love them too. Sonic Mania is exactly the direction we need Sonic to go in and I'm sure Sega will evaluate Sonic's future based on how well this title performs, so I bought it on both PS4 and Xbox One. I'm voting twice!
  6. Matterfall Review Roundup

    Great game, but it's too short? Sounds perfect for me.
  7. I'll tell you when I appreciate this picture the most - as soon as I go back and watch something on another TV. In my head, I THINK the other TV doesn't look too bad comparatively. Until I'm sitting there watching it and thinking, "ugh... I really want to go back to the nice TV"
  8. I didn't do any kind of proper calibration with equipment and the like. For starters, the LG's are already quite accurate colours right out of the box. Secondly, I'd been reading about some experiences with these particular TVs where post-calibration while the readings proclaimed a more accurate image, viewers were seeing more colour banding and other issues that weren't present pre-calibration. Thirdly, I'm the type of person who doesn't mind (and even enjoys to an extent), tweaking picture settings over and over. I'd start with some recommended settings from AVS Forums or one of the review sites and then tweak from there. I'd run back the same scene 20+ times using slight adjustments to the picture to find where I was happiest with things. Then I'd put a different disc in with different kind of material and repeat. People are very different in preferences for what they think looks good, so I prefer to calibrate to my eyes most times. Then I have presets I use for bright room vs dark room, animated movies, bright colourful movies, darker toned movies, gaming, and then all those options from HDR sources as well (since the TV has completely different picture presets that are present when the TV is receiving an HDR source).
  9. There is some uncertainty over whether or not OLEDs really benefit from any kind of break-in period; however, some people say the image quality generally improves and stabilizes after 300 - 400 hours of use. Some people say to avoid static images like game HUDs for the first hundred hours or so. Some people say it doesn't matter with OLEDs. If you want to be on the conservative side, watch full screen television content without any static images or letterboxing for the first 100 hours or so and don't use the TV in letterbox mode and don't put it in vivid mode for that period. Personally, I just ran the TV however I felt like it. I played games, I watched letterboxed movies, I used vivid mode for certain content, etc. I've had no issues with the TV as a result of my frivolity Because there can be some slight shifting in the colours after a few hundred hours, if you're going to do any really detailed calibration of the TV, wait until its over that period of time, however.
  10. The D1P gym. (NSFW)

    Geez Kab, that really sucks. I hope it works out as best it can, and this is just a scare.
  11. Thanks Canada!

    As someone who lives in the Southern Interior of BC, it has been ridiculously smoky this summer from all the wildfires! Like, some days, if it's more than a block away, it may as well not exist, because all you see is white. Having to stay indoors a lot. I used to think the air quality scale only went to 10, because my weather app rates it 1 to 10. Well it actually says 10+, so I have to go to the internet to get the actual reading... Oh, it's 49.... right... that's just great then. Some days I clear the small accumulation of ash dust off my windshield with the wipers before pulling out of the driveway...
  12. So what's the deal on the PS4 Pro?

    You can. It works fine. I switch my external HDD back and forth between my regular PS4 and my PS4 pro all the time. One note - before unplugging an external HDD from a PS4, you need to go to the devices option and select to "Stop using external Hard Drive".
  13. So what's the deal on the PS4 Pro?

    If he set's the Pro as his main PS4, it will work for whoever is logged in on that PS4.
