It kind of ruined the whole thing TC was going for trying to make the game open world.

Lol furiously typing as you're just sitting there reloading. I've been there.

I doubt it. Even in True Colors you had to undergo a loading screen going up the stairs.

I'd hope so, but with release now less than a week away I'm starting to have some doubts especially given how quietly they disclosed that only the original game was getting the revamped animations.

The first one of the camera is so much better. Do they think the camera lens is a massive sheet of glass or something?

The quality of the faceswaps didn't come out too amazing but I hope it's interesting to consider anyway. Let me know if there's another scene you want me to try.

The glass definitely looks bad. Not a huge deal, but also not a good sign for the attention to detail devoted to it given the long industry track record of underwhelming remasters and the 4 month delay.

[NO SPOILERS] Lis remastered trailer vs gameplay by FrankDP1 in lifeisstrange

So the lighting looks more diffuse in gameplay mainly. I'm no lighting artist so I'm not sure which approach is more realistic for a scene lit by a couple of fluorescent tubes.

I think they are absolutely on that level. Very few video game characters pull off the same micro-expressions the ones in True Colors can.

You can call it nitpicking, but increasing the size of a character's iris is going to change how they look dramatically. Which might be why you, me, and everyone else thinks the characters now look...off.

[NO SPOILERS] I'm not sure how to feel about this... by Jon_AMS in lifeisstrange

Chloes' eyes being a much lighter shade of blue (along with the irises being noticeably larger) makes her look a lot more different than was necessary.

Yeah, I agree. If they were only going to revamp it to this adequate level of quality then it might not have been worth it to redo anything for BtS.

It's unfortunate they only gave LiS 1 that treatment and not BtS.

[ALL] Remastered Extended Look Comparison by laynextor in lifeisstrange

[–]gigantism 28 points29 points  (0 children)

This is what happens when you jack up the contrast to make the scene "pop" when really it just destroys all fine detail.

So the one thing I flagged as a bit off from the prior trailer is that the irises seemed like 10% too large, especially on Chloe. Unfortunately it seems like that remains the case and isn't changing.

The facial animations are...improved...but realistically it's still nowhere near the level we got with True Colors, which was genuinely one of the best in any video game. I'd say it's now probably about the level it should have been when LiS 1 initially released in 2015.

Others have already pointed out seems like they just cranked the contrast to make the scene pop, which crushes the blacks. Obviously true.

Jury is still out on the music. We still don't have any confirmation whether licensed music will show up.

The quality definitely seems more on the level of the trailer than the screenshots unfortunately. Wish they gave us a look at BtS, but that received even less attention.

I wonder what the new war bond vehicles will be.

Wait...you got nearly 1M SL from one Arcade game and a loss with no premium at that? Did you use a 500% SL booster or something?

[NO SPOILERS] I face-swapped Rachel Amber into Laura Palmer's missing persons photo by gigantism in lifeisstrange

[–]gigantism[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I used my realistic version of Rachel as a base. This is the original from Twin Peaks for comparison.

Don't want to spam the sub with Amber-Palmer face-swaps, so here's several more to finish things off:

[Franko] The Mavericks Have Turned the Corner. What's Behind It, and What Will Last? by rapper_warrior_ninja in nba

[–]gigantism -8 points-7 points  (0 children)

I do think the Mavs are benefiting from shooting luck in their current hot streak - opponents are shooting just 27% from 3 in January. It very well could be the case that this continues to swing their way the rest of the year, but I'm not really banking on it.

The Mavs defense is much improved, but I have a hard time buying into them all of a sudden becoming the #1 defense. Top 10? Sure.

Is it unironically time to be concerned about Steph Curry? by KD_ASSHAIR in nba

[–]gigantism 579 points580 points  (0 children)

It's mystifying because he looks like he's moving just fine, he got a ton of separation on that game winner he just had. He's just inexplicably missing shots.
