    The Retro Gaming bug

    Mike released the 1.55 firmware for the Tink5x last night and it adds an LCD scanline filter for the Gameboy Interface (via Swiss) and adds chroma 4:4:4 output on select phase configs! Lawd, Zero Mission at 360p with the LCD scanline filter is gosh damn DREAMY!

  4. I've spent the first couple days of this work week retouching images from a photoshoot my company arranged. As I've worked on making masks, I found myself continually impressed by the IQ of the photos. Super clean and detailed, no weird edges or lens blooms around high contrast areas. So I checked the file info. The photographer used a Phase One IQ3 100MP camera with a Schneider Kreuznach 80mm LS f/2.8 lens. So wonderful to work with quality like this. That is all.

  9. With all of the franchise product these days, Sir Ridley managed to sneak in a period piece action drama with gravitas and resonance. I’m all in with a bullet on this one.

  11. So I was trading in a big old back of duplicate Blu-Rays and had some credit to spend. I ended up picking a few "wants' I've been eyeing up including the Alex Kidd remake, Observer System Redux on the PS5 and a few others. With a bit of cash left over, I saw this little Sonic looking mascot platformer that seemed kind of interesting. I remembered some youtuber saying it was pretty good so I went ahead and picked it up on the Xbox since it supports Auto-HDR and seems to run very well on the platform. Let me tell you - don't sleep on this little game! I'm about 40% of the way done with it and it's a blast. It features exquisitely tight controls in the vein of 90's platformers. Donkey Kong Country is absolutely the games greatest influence as some of the gameplay mechanics of the most recently titles even make an appearance here (that's not a bad thing!). It also happens to have a really great sprite/pixel look to its visuals that certainly pulls at the nostalgia strings while still featuring some great visual level design and a distinct style that doesn't feel like its phoning in the retro thing. It’s not doing anything substantially new but what it does, it does really, really well. Like any good platformer, the difficulty isn't in completing the levels but in finding all of its secrets. Each level has two bonus levels hidden them to form a green jewel. There's also the ability to pick up letters that spell out the name of the main character - Kaze. This will award you another jewel. Finding 100 purple jewels in the level will award you another and finishing the level without getting hit will award you the last one. It's fair with the just the right amount of challenge. I'm legit surprised I had never heard of this until now as its been out since March but if you're a fan of games like the more recent Donkey Kong titles or the latest Yooka Laylee, it's very much in that vein with a bit less of the ball breaking challenge those titles feature. I cannot recommend it enough as we desperately need more quality old school "mascot" platformers in this style, IMO. This is a great little video review if you're interested in seeing it in motion:

  12. US date for The Thing has been formally announced for September 7th: Special Features Features High Dynamic Range (HDR10) for Brighter, Deeper, More Lifelike Color John Carpenter's The Thing: Terror Takes Shape Outtakes Theatrical Trailer Feature Commentary with Director John Carpenter and Kurt Russell Technical Information Run Time: Theatrical : 1 Hour(s) 49 Minutes MPAA Rating: R Language & Audio: English DTS:X Master Audio / French European DTS Digital Surround 5.1 / Latin Spanish DTS Digital Surround 2.0 Mono Subtitles: English SDH / French Canadian / Latin Spanish Picture: Widescreen / Color Release Date: September 7, 2021 Number of Discs: 2 If there's one area Universal do still upset me it's regarding how rarely they include original audio mixes. It's a shame Universal wouldn't just let Arrow have the 4k rights for this one. I'm not sure how I can stick the Universal UHD in with the Arrow steelbook that I have since Arrow's release was only a single disc.
