  1. According to Oodle, the previous 8-9 GB/s IO bandwidth figure was provided by Sony by multiplying the 5.5 GB/s peak bandwidth of the PS5 SSD for the standard compression ratio of 1.45/1 or 1.64/1. However, when factoring in both Oodle Kraken and Oodle Texture, the developers of the technology have seen an impressive compression ratio of 3.16/1 for a texture set in a recent game; this would translate into an IO bandwidth peak of 17.38 GB/s. td;lr if Oodle's statement about their techs potential is correct... it would mean the PS5's custom nvme will be up to roughly 5x faster than the Series X drive when fully utilized
  2. Final Fantasy XVI has been rated [M] Mature by the ESRB. Interesting that the game has already been rated, it must be closer to coming out than we expected? Current rumor is that it has been secretly in development for roughly 4 years. Only other FF title to get an M rating I believe was Type-0. Kind of expected it though when blood was displayed in the trailer.

  4. “The Boys” could soon be getting a spinoff. Amazon is fast-tracking development on a new iteration of the popular comic book series adaptation. The news comes just under three weeks after the premiere of Season 2 of the series, which is based on The New York Times best-selling comic of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The second season is airing weekly, while the first dropped all at once, with the finale set to air Oct. 9. According to Amazon, the second season had the most-watched global launch of an Amazon original series ever, with the episodes to date having grown the audience from Season 1 by 89%. It was renewed for a third season ahead of the Season 2 premiere while also adding an aftershow hosted by Aisha Tyler. The spinoff is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (or “supes”) that is run by Vought International. It is described as an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of “The Boys.” Craig Rosenberg is writing the pilot and will serve as showrunner and executive producer under his overall deal with Sony Pictures Television, with Rosenberg currently serving as writer and executive producer on the original series. “The Boys” creator Eric Kripke will also executive produce along with “The Boys” executive producer Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures. Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty, who also executive produce “The Boys,” are also executive producers on the spinoff. Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television will produce. The second season sees the titular vigilantes on the run and hunted by the supes. Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are in hiding after the explosive events of the first season finale, while Butcher (Karl Urban) is off on his own for a bit. Meanwhile, Homelander (Antony Starr) is trying to expand his power in a few new ways and Starlight (Erin Moriarty) is trying to navigate her own place in the Seven as the group shifts. Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media savvy new supe, comes in with an agenda of her own, while a larger threat looms, leaving Vought seeking to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia

  12. It certainly was. Opening with FF16 right off the bat blew lots of minds. In comparison the competitions showcases were vastly criticized for being lame or not showcasing much. Everything they included here was something being announced for the first time I believe? I don't think they included much that was known prior to the event (well there was RE8, and some obvious ports) which meant it was packed full of exciting new titles.

  14. Finally watched this one because everyone seems to rave about how good it is despite it getting canned. After watching it all I can think about it is that I can see why it was canned. I don't get what people loved about it. Mirrorman was pretty much the only likeable character in the show and the plot was mostly just a lot of contrived messes taped together. The whole sthick with Adrian pretty much made no sense and ended up not really having any merit to the overall plot. If it did somehow magically get renewed I'd have zero interest in returning to it.
  15. It looks like in FF16, people actually transform into the summons rather than actually summon them. Seems pretty clear the boy turned into Phoenix. Then someone else transformed into Ifrit. Also seems like some time will pass in the story given the appearance of the MC being shown to be much older.

    Edge of Eternity

    New Intermediate Chapter In addition to Chapter VI, the November update will come with a "0.5" Chapter taking place between Daryon's desertion and Elon Village. Instead of skipping the path to his mother's house, you will be the one to make the journey, get a first peek at the open world, familiarize yourself with the game mechanics, and have time to digest the exposure from the dense chapter 0. Coming with this, we also want to introduce Nekaroos earlier in the adventure, even if your Nekaroo will remain in this area you will be able to enjoy the joy of playing with the cutest pet! As for Chapter VI, it will be coming in November as planned!
  20. Trailer for the final 7 episodes, starting October 8. Production restarted on August 18: Cameras started tolling today as planned on the last two episodes of the CW’s Supernatural in Vancouver. Series producer Warner Bros. TV made a deal with the local unions that paved the way for production to begin. Like every other Hollywood production, Supernatural was shut down in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic. The CW at the time opted to hold back seven episodes, including the two that were yet to be shot, for a final chapter to air in fall 2020. In anticipation for filming to resume this week, the network yesterday set an October 8 premiere for series’ final batch of episodes, leading to the series finale.

  21. The Walking Dead: Season 11 will be the last one. But they are dragging it out. AMC ordered a 24 episode final season that will air over 2 years 2021 and 2022. After that, they green lit a Carol and Daryl spin-off that will air in 2023 and they green lit an anthology themed show. So those of you who are sick and tired of this franchise will still have many more years left. And Fear the Walking Dead is still active as well along with the World Beyond spin-off.
  22. The zombie apocalypse series based on Robert Kirkman’s comics is coming to an end in 2022 with an expanded 11th season. However, fans of the once highest rated show on the small screen shouldn’t fret too much at the loss of the mother show. AMC has already given the go-ahead to a new TWD spinoff starring fan favorites Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride in their roles as Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier. Created by TWD showrunner Angela Kang and Deadverse chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, that as yet untitled series is scheduled to debut in 2023. As was announced at this year’s coronavirus induced virtual Comic-Con, the pandemic delayed TWD Season 10 finale will now air as a special episode on October 4 with 10 additional episodes to air in 2021 for the current cycle. Tearing a page out of the playbook that AMC used for the end of Mad Men and Breaking Bad, the 11th and final season of the once blockbuster TWD will run over two-years for a grand total of 24 episodes. “It’s been ten years ‘gone bye;’ what lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that,” said Gimple of the show that debuted on Halloween 2010. “I look forward to digging in with our brilliant writers, producers, directors, cast and crew to bring this epic final chapter of Robert Kirkman’s story to life for our fans over the next two years,” said Kang, who took over as TWD showrunner from Gimple at the start of Season 9. “The Walking Dead flagship series has been my creative home for a decade and so it’s bittersweet to bring it to an end, but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol,” the EP added. “Working with Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride has been a highlight of my career and I’m thrilled that we get to keep telling stories together.” In addition to the upcoming Daryl and Carol series current spinoffs Fear the Walking Dead, starting its sixth season on October 11, and the October 4th premiering YA two-season long The Walking Dead: World Beyond, AMC and Gimple are developing a Tales of The Walking Dead anthology series. Episodic in format, Tales will likely focus on individual characters from the clearly expanding Deadverse, both new and old. More TWD shows are in various stages of discussion too, I hear, though no indication that a Negan or Maggie Rheee series is one of them. Having exited TWD in 2018 for the broadcast network heights of ABC’s short lived Whiskey Cavalier, Lauren Cohan is returning as Maggie to TWD for the remainder of the Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd EP’d show’s 10th and probably 11th season. The Jeffrey Dean Morgan portrayed Negan has shifted this current season from his murderous villain role to more of an elder statesman of the Survivors, a ripe move to a spinoff of his own perhaps. It is worth noting that besides a recently published Negan solo comic, Morgan and spouse Hilarie Burton hosted the TWD cast heavy six-episode virtual talkshow Friday Night in with the Morgans this summer on AMC. Plus, with all that, there are still the trio of Rick Grimes big screen adventures, starring Andrew Lincoln, which are in the script stage at Universal. In many ways, even as the series continues to be the biggest thing on AMC, the conclusion of TWD proper makes sense. For one thing, off-screen Kirkman suddenly wrapped up the TWD comics after 193 issues in 2019. On-screen, leading man Lincoln left two years ago and now Marvel Universe regular Danai Gurira headed off stage, so to speak, in March of this year. While the door was never fully closed on Gurira’s Michonne character, who went looking for Grimes after the wounded one-time Sheriff’s Deputy was spirited off by a mysterious helicopter in the fifth episode of Season 9, it seemed pretty clear that the focus of the series had shifted to CAA repped Reedus and UTA repped McBride’s characters – even more so with both actors inking lucrative new contracts in recent years. On another level, TWD will be heading into its final stretch as AMC finally heads to trial in April 2021 against show creator and original showrunner Frank Darabont and CAA in the latter’s 2013 launched $300 million profit participation lawsuit against the cabler. While that COVID-19 postponed trial inches closer, AMC scored a big legal win earlier this summer in another profit participation dust-up with Kirkman and other TWD EPs. After a mini-trial in March, LA Superior Court Judge Daniel Buckley determined on July 22 that if Kirkman didn’t like the “plain language” deal he inked years ago and the resulting Modified Adjusted Gross Receipts and imputed license fees, that was his problem, not AMC’s. No appeal has been filed yet in that case, which moves on to another phase dealing with other non-contract issues in the next few months – which is a whole other type of anthology series of its own.
  23. Mulan [2020] It was okay. Seems weird they were trying to be a bit more grounded/realistic when the result seemingly seems less so. In any case not nearly as bad as the review bombing would have you believe. It's a decent re-imagining on the Mulan tale, but falls short of what the animated classic is.
