    Ah yes. That's turned out so well, hasn't it.

    Even the Lost World Laserdisc is a grain-fest in the opening shots, along with the DVD, the second DVD and the Blu-ray. So I'm not surprised that's still the case. The cinema print and VHS tape were probably grainy too, if I could remember that far back.
  3. Oh come on. It’s not complex - if you make up a fake dinosaur, it’s just a big reptilian monster, and frankly dull. Get the science right, or every 8-year-old boy will tell you in words of five syllables what you’ve done wrong. Spielberg never pulled this junk.

    Why? It's not "yor" decision on how spelling works ;-) I don't know where my contact is going to shop, but if it's Best Buy I'll ask nicely.
  5. They're bringing Amped 3 to the X? I missed that.
  6. Netflix members...

    With my main reason for being interested is that episode 6 is directed by Vincenzo Natali of Cube and Splice, and two others are by Neil Marshall of The Descent and Dog Soldiers, it had never even occurred to me that it might be suitable to watch with kids...

    Thanks everyone - seems I misunderstood. Spider-man was bizarrely loud, rather than bizarrely quiet on my system, but mostly it was that the opening five minutes consists of an over-egged echo effect to signify the large space Batman's dismantling alien stuff in, then the home videos where they've mapped speech to all the surround channels. It cleaned up once the film had got properly underway.

    We watched the Blu of Spider-Man Homecoming last night, and it sounded AWFUL, yes.
  9. I get that they’re cutting these with a bit more precision, but most of the “advantages” seem to be coming from getting a computer to find the optimal cutting size rather than a human using their skill and expertise to make a judgement. Hmm. I think I fear the last of a nebulous “soul” to the process more than I do time with the audio signal in a digital realm.

    The mesh nets on the Midgetrooper are perfect for Highland summers.

    That 3.56:1 game layout, in full. For reference, the steering wheel is about steering wheel sized; it's ridiculously immersive despite the black line.
  12. Ah, the wonders of self-righteous reverse engineers. I can’t say I’m surprised.
  13. How are Saturn emulators? I’m vaguely aware that the hardware is really quite weird, as Sega designed it to be a super-powerful sprite pusher before kludging in 3D on top that’s called in a very different way to most things.

    Blimey. Second calibrated, matching screen set up. Forza Horizon 3 at 3840x1080 is properly amazing; the off-side mirror fits in the FOV and it’s like a blur-free man’s VR. I’m really surprised how little the 1cm gap between them matters.

    June? Bugger.
