What do you think of Flight Sim so far? Shame about the shooters as there's some great ones even outside Gears, Halo in things like Wolfenstein and Doom.
Platformers: Psychonauts 2, Ori & Blind Forest/Will of the Wisps,
Press a Menu button whilst playing, and it should tell you the mode in the settings
Put it on games mode to avoid input lag and the TV putting an extra layer over the top. If that's then too bright just turn it down rather than changing the mode.
That's weird. Does your tv only support HDR through 1 hdmi? Is it game by game?
Guessing it'd be a hdr related issue but if the same game/menu randomly changes then likely its something else. Have you swapped the hdmi lead itself?
It's the sort of game that would usually drop in price really quickly and struggle with sales.
That there are no other Sony exclusives and not many single player games releasing this holiday generally, I could see it having some extended shelf...
I wouldn't expect someone picking up half way through with no intention of finishing it to love it the same way. A lot of the satisfaction will be in piecing together info from each play, experimenting and then actually tying up and completing...
