I’ve uploaded another screenshot gallery. This time for the bizarre, but graphically fascinating Killer is Dead. It’s a fairly straight-forward, 3rd-person, sword-play game with reasonably satisfying combat, but the visual style really makes it stand out from other similar games.
I have a lot of games I need to try out. As I do I’ll be creating galleries for each one. Today I loaded up Next Car Game, processed the screens and uploaded a gallery. Playing at 4K, the fidelity of the visuals is highly impressive and the physics – including brilliant levels of car and environmental damage modelling – are tremendously satisfying.
I also livestreamed the DayZ standalone for about an hour, although I haven’t gotten around to creating a screenshot gallery.
On July 2nd I picked up a Samsung LU28D590S, an entry-level Ultra High Definition (UHD) 28″ monitor, for can$655 (~us$612, €450, £357) after taxes. Since then I have been doing various tests to determine exactly which games support UHD and to what extent, as well as trying to get a sense of how it changes various games and software.
In this post I give a general review and opinion of the monitor and examine the viability of “4K” gaming.
