We must confess, we have really failed to provide a solid coverage of the Sea of Thieves beta ever since it started to allow video footage, so we took the opportunity of the final beta build to try the game a bit more than we had in the past. Sadly, we were quite unlucky yesterday evening, as we couldn't even get a free treasure map, the old man selling them taking ages to count our coins (we had none and the map was free, so the math was hard...), which is why we decided to set sail without any real objective to motivate our adventure. You'll also notice that we had no crew, which clearly isn't the best way to experience Rare's new title. Nothing much happened in the course of our short journey, we didn't meet anyone (but we don't need anyone when it comes to sinking our own boat), we found nothing of interest in the different islands we explored, but we saw very nice landscapes and beautiful waters. This more or less proves that the success of the game will only rely on what players will be lucky enough to experience, together or on their own. We just don't know yet if there is enough content to make it interesting in the long run. What do you guys think? Update: Fifth video added.
@jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (10 Hours ago)
@jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (12 Hours ago)
I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (15 Hours ago)
When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (15 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (15 Hours ago)
Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (20 Hours ago)
This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (20 Hours ago)
