I don't see anything in the config file, but there's a separate anti-aliasing part. I dropped it down from 3 to 2 and I think it looks less blurry
I believe CA is likely tied to the post processing setting.

Frame pacing. Like when running around Kena kinda skips a little.
I watched the ACG review and I was certain he brought this up and said it was her animation and looks like stuttering but isn't? I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure it was something to that effect.

Can you guys tell how is the ratio combat\platform-exploration?!

Like 50-50? 70-30? I get bored fast if there is barely any combat.

Jeez... You ok there, bud? @DonJuanSchlong


Platform warriors that try to wage war using emojis really are pathetic.

As you reach new areas you find enemies pretty frequently, once you defeat them they won't ever respawn there again though so those places become just exploration ground from then on.

Shit, so the more you play and backtrack the less you fight...

Not sure if i can maintain my interest high if the game is mostly a platformer\collect stuff\puzzles (not that there is anything bad about it, just personal preference)

Calling out other users by name like that is also pathetic.
Why?

If you behave in a shitty way in a public forum, you deserve to be called out on it.

This is a community. Outside of the infractions that would be moderated by the mods, in all other behaviour, we're all accountable to each other.

Behave like a sensible poster and others will respect you for it.

Behave like a mindless, rabid platform warrior and get called out for it.

What reason do we have not to call folks out? You're suggesting we don't and just let shit like that continue and the forum end up going to shit? Nah... sorry. I don't think you'll find many on this forum that would agree with you on that.

This is just video games. Calling someone out and trying to summon them into an argument makes it personal and that's about as infantile as it gets. Imagine feeling so personally attacked by someone's opinion of a video game that you need to make a public spectacle of them. Completely childish.

No it's not. We're calling out a poster for waging puerile platform wars by leaving lol emoji's on other poster's posts.

That's not conducive behaviour to meaningful discourse on a discussion forum. That poster is in effect using emoji's to attempt to ridicule people's posts because they merely disagree with them. Rather than, you know... just stating in a post on a discussion forum that they disagree.

It's the definition of childish.

Calling someone out and trying to summon them into an argument makes it personal

Well, good thing no-one was doing this.

We were calling out the childish behaviour of a poster that wasn't posting and engaging in discussion but rather inappropriately using the features of the forum to direct ridicule at various posters. They themselves made it personal.

No-one else had to.

Imagine feeling so personally attacked by someone's opinion of a video game that you need to make a public spectacle of them. Completely childish.

Erm... now you must be trolling because this is a complete mischaracterisation of the event.

The person being called out didn't even express any personal opinion about a videogame at all. The behaviour being called out was them using emoji to direct ridicule on posters (who were themselves only expressing their opinions about a videogame).

So based on this, you MUST agree that the person being called out was the only one being childish. Otherwise, you're being logically inconsistent.

The exploration is really well done. You usually have to really explore and search if you want to find stuff or progress the story. They mostly don't label things on a map like in any modern open-world. Also some bosses are quite hard to beat.

The funny thing is someone complaining like you are in a video games forum.

That guy was doing low quality trolling, it's not like someone scraped his post history to find a bad argument he had 12years ago.

Playing in 30fps mode on PS5 and I like it. I noticed a little stutter here and there when entering new areas or something on the PS5 that the PS4 version doesn’t do. I also noticed late textures streaming in and the PS4 version doesn’t seem to do that either.

Cutscenes are 30fps too so for consistency I like the 30fps 4K mode. Controls feel really sluggish no matter which mode you play in.
Im playing on performance mode, I don't know if this game lacks motion blur but 60fps is way smoother. Also the graphics are very similar to 30fps.
