Sorry Gman, I guess I thought it wasn't too spoily because in most games the tougher bosses come in the latter parts, but I DID mention their names and probably shouldn't have. I've edited it, my bad for doing it too late.
I use the filter for all my games now too. The sharpen filter is so good! Once I turned this on in most games, the blurriness disappeared and the image looks really crisp. I also want to recommend you the 'Brightness/Contrast' filter. Enabling that will give you the same effect as reducing the gamma with much more richer colors. The dark areas really become dark rather than gray.Somehow the game seems more beautiful this time around too, but it's no doubt due to Nvidia's new Sharpen filter, and my having bumped gamma down a notch this time, which adds more richness to the color palette in deserts, and makes the HDR of the sun really pop.
I think that might cause more harm than good on my sys. I have an IPS display that's cffl lit. I have to avoid things like SweetFX and Handbrake because they make dark areas look way too dark. I don't really have a problem with grays looking black.I also want to recommend you the 'Brightness/Contrast' filter.

You can still adjust the contrast, brightness in the filter. I have an IPS screen too and in SC: Blacklist I had to reduce the contrast down from the default 30% that was in the filter to 19%.I think that might cause more harm than good on my sys.

Yeah, but my guess is it's LED lit, which is a big difference from what I have. The mention of grays was a dead giveaway. Again, I have no such problems. With mine if I so much as bump the color warmth up a bit, everything looks good, and I can quickly do it with the remote. The only games I really do that in is the ones that show colors as overly weathered and washed out, like post apocalyptic titles, and ones that take place on islands with drastic weather changes.I have an IPS screen too and in SC: Blacklist I had to reduce the contrast down from the default 30% that was in the filter to 19%.
They just had a big selection of free games too over the last week or so. Just got The Talos Principle for $0. The Epic Games launcher has gotten a lot of negative feedback since it launched but i really haven't found anything worse about it than any of the others i've had to use over the years.I finally jumped on the Epic bandwagon after managing to avoid it until now. They were giving $10 off coupons and everything was on sale...
Shame you didn't like it, I rather enjoyed it, and felt it had quite a different feel. It not only gives you more open areas you can approach sandbox style, it makes you think about how to use Jack. Gears of War 4 is better for challenge, but it's fatal flaw is the Vulture battle, which is way too hard on Inconceivable mode and kills replay value....we logged in and played a couple hours of Gears 5 and it was a major disappointment vs what others had described as a major upgrade in story & gameplay vs the earlier releases of the franchise. was still just a corridor shooter with minimum allocation of armor attributes and weapons. really saw no intriguing value in dialogue or choices for anything that had to do with the further venture of the game.
Exactly. I love Steam but damn, (good) low priced games are few in between on Steam. I'm a poor man, so I'll take whatever deal I can get. If Epic wants to give me free games AND offer lower prices on games I'm interested in, well, then I'll use them. Case in point, I have about 25 games in my Epic library, 23 of which were free. I also have Origin (Battlefield series) & Rockstar. (Red Dead redemption 2)I finally jumped on the Epic bandwagon after managing to avoid it until now. They were giving $10 off coupons and everything was on sale. So I bought Mechwarrior 5. Then they gave me another $10 coupon and I got Metro Exodus. And they gave me another coupon ( I see why they're stealing Steam's business ) so I got Outer Worlds. And yes it came with a $10 off coupon. I spent about $90 on three AAA games and that's pretty amazing. I never would have bought them like this at Steam because they never would have been that cheap for all 3.
I think it's sad Blacklist drew so much hate, mainly for a different voice for Sam and the forced action segments, which to me were very few, very short, and no problem at all to get through. I mean they were literally well under 10% of the total content, yet people acted like the game was overwhelmed by them. To me all they did was give the game some needed contrast to break up the monotony a bit. I actually worry what the next game will be like from those reactions. IMO Blacklist was the best SC ever made.I finished Splinter Cell Blacklist a few days ago. I missed stealth games. Very much reminded me of Metal Gear Solid V. I liked the story here. The characters were all well written. Not sure what to feel about Sam Fisher's new voice though. I have played Chaos Theory and Conviction but never finished them, so I do know of Michael Ironside's iconic voice.
Stealth gameplay was good. I never felt too frustrated with the enemy AI but I was not really a fan of the forced action segments. They have some really good open environments where you are provided with multiple paths. But this game really forced some gunfights on you which felt out of place. There was even a forced first person view that felt super wonky.
got through ME1 again. being almost 10 years later since my last playthrough it was amazing to see it modded up to pretty much modern standards. is still an awesome game and story. have gone through the same process of modding the hell out of ME2 now and have gotten a few hours into it. the gameplay isn't quite as fun as ME1 but it's growing on me. more just playing to finish the story now though it seems.don't know if it'll hold my attention through all 4 games but i always loved the entire Mass Effect series.
