Is it best to get a tv with HDR 10 for Xbox One X?
There was a tv I was looking at that just says HDR.

 

Technically the Xbox One S / X requires HDR10 for games. My old TV was HDR8 and a few games picked up on it but not consistently. My new set with HDR10 definitely has better color depth and value for games (it's also a lot bigger so that helps too). 

 

Cheaper TVs (sub-$500) seem to do well with gaming and HDR, but aren't as good for movies, especially for dark scenes and gray / black values. Still mostly looks great, but for example, watching a movie like The Dark Knight, daytime scenes look incredible and scenes where there's a lot of dark struggle to show the same variation and depth of scale.

We all know this isn't true. It will literally be Corona. Or Covid. People are stupid.


Covida if it’s a girl.

Thanks all, at least it's now over. He fought that shit till the very end. Nothing is harder than calling someone to tell them their father has just passed on. I appreciate you all letting me speak this here, mean a lot to me. Now, I'm not going to go cry some more

Condolences. A terrible thing at any time, but especially during a global crisis.

Anyone have comments on either of these:

 

A Way Out $7.49

Cuphead $14.99

 

Are they good local multiplayer co-op?

 

After crosschecking my wishlist spreadsheet with the current pricing...I see where some may find this sale lacking. I only found a couple games beat their historical low prices. Still, most of them I compared are at their historical low price which works for me since there are a lot I do not have yet.

A Way Out requires a co-op partner, which can be local. It was heralded as a blend of movie and game, which is somewhat true but I found the story and setting a little derivative. It was still fun. Game-wise it's very forgiving and has pretty basic mechanics, when you get weapons it looks like Gears (3rd person shooting) and you'll try to play it like a real shooter and realize it's really simplified. Some twists which make it a little memorable.

 

Cuphead is the opposite and will kick your teeth in, and you'll like it.

Separate post so the embed works for this one, 6 months for $40 is pretty killer:

 

 

Hey after months of Disney+ trying to learn how to operate a DVD player, it looks they finally learned something and will have original aspect ratio Simpsons by May.

Thank Fuck. Why would anyone think they'd rather lose 1/3 of the image just to have it take up the whole screen?

 

Reminds me of when Star Wars came out in 4:3 and they cut key characters out of important scenes.
