The first weeks of 2018 have been pretty quiet on Gamersyde but we're back to business now. After davton's coverage of the excellent Dragon Ball FighterZ, we're welcoming a new quality guest with the long awaited remake of Shadow of the Colossus. Inside, you'll find 2 videos recorded in resolution mode and one in the 60 fps mode. We'll add a few more in the days to come but because we only received our copy a few hours ago, we haven't had time to do more. We'll also be live playing the game tomorrow evening at 9:15 p.m CET if you're interested. Note: All the footage we have captured was recorded on PS4 Pro. Update : 2 videos added.
The 2 graphics modes
• The Cinematic mode prioritizes image quality to push the game's resolution up to 4K (resolution remains dynamic though). Those who do not own a 4K TV will also benefit from it as the game will be downscaled from 1440p to 1080p.
• The Performance mode offers a smooth experience at 60 fps. It's too early to tell you if it remains steady but you'll see in the video that the added smoothness is really nice in this mode.
@MrWhite: yea, i think they did a really good job with that scene. At first i tried to remember the shots of her from the original to figure out if they re-used footage before the angles changed more. (7 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, that's a good point. It's still noticeable, but it's literally so close that any kind of anomaly will be spotted and give that uncanny valley. The rendering though is flawless. (12 minutes ago)
as for Tarkin, i think they should have gone with the stand-in actor with some make-up/prosthetics. just looking at him in the making-of material he looks close enough. (17 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: she was kinda stiff/robotic in the original BR too. Like a doll, which they obviously aimed for, which helps sell the 2049 version. (19 minutes ago)
The other scenes that had all CG models of the actors and actress were so well done, I didn't realise it was entirely all rendered. Joi for example is almost completely CG overlaid with the actress. (21 minutes ago)
Tarkin in Rogue One looked great right up until he started moving and talking. Then it just looked ridiculous. BR's Sean Young is a bit similar, but its only really her mouth moving that I find off (22 minutes ago)
