Xbox Series X backwards compatibility is shaping up to be an absolute home run based on our testing so far – yes, every title we’ve looked at so far seems to hit their performance target when 30fps or 60fps caps are in place, games using dynamic resolution scaling can show clear improvements, while we’re looking at anything up to a 2x multiplier in GPU performance in games with unlocked frame-rates. On top of that, there’s an image quality bonus too: texture filtering is improved via enforced 16x anisotropic filtering. Loading time improvements are also significantly improved – and that’s the focus for this follow-up coverage.

You see, there’s one disadvantage to the next-gen dream. Storage space on the internal solid state drive is at a premium – Xbox Series X ships with 802 useable gigs on the 1TB drive. On the one hand, that’s actually an improvement over the 781GB … Read the rest

Is 8K gaming actually viable with Nvidia’s latest Ampere-based GPUs? While a small selection of triple-A titles stand a good chance of hitting decent frame-rates at native 8K, Nvidia has released a new ultra performance mode for its DLSS AI upscaling technology – and its ambition is extraordinary. It aims to boost detail with a 9x multiplier, meaning that a core 1440p image is reconstructed to full 7680×4320 resolution: that’s a final render output of 33 million pixels, reconstructed from just 3.7m. There’s a whole discussion about whether 8K gaming is actually needed in the here and now – and it’s a situation that can only be ascertained by actually giving it a go on a consumer screen, something we still don’t have right now. Even so, the tools and techniques are certainly available to get a close-up look at image quality and performance and to draw some initial conclusions. … Read the rest

Down at the campsite and under the blue wash of moonlight, Edie the owner is dreaming about Greg. Greg is dead. He owned the campsite before Edie, and the handover was awkward – nothing dramatic, just a difference of philosophy. Greg seemed austere and obsessed with rules – tent dimensions, guy rope types, no ball games. But there was another side to him and Edie saw it too late. Now as she dreams, she considers the person she may have misjudged. Is this how relationships go, between the living and the dead?

We can peer into Edie’s head here, just as we have peered down into her home on the campsite, the roof stripping back as we move closer. Just as we peered down into the campsite itself, roving between its distinct spaces, plucking them out, rotating them, inspecting them. Hidden object games are often 2D affairs – here’s a … Read the rest
