i'm watching the first episode of house m.d. out of curiosity but almost the entire episode is in monochrome other than flesh tones and i swear to god the house m.d. i watched on hulu in 2007 didn't look like this. i love the revisionist history of rereleases
this is absolutely not how it looked when i watched it 15 years ago. what the fuck is this war crime color grading it looks like i died in a 1950s hospital and my ghost still haunts that place @Emoji_Nakamoto ImageImageImageImage
the last movies i watched were 300 and sin city and they had more life and saturation in them than this. this is *not* what i watched in 2008.
who the fuck would color grade a rerelease like this? is this hell? am i being punished? fuck you
it appears they realized how badly they fucked up a few episodes into the first season ImageImage
cuddy looks like a fucking monster. is this german expressionism? was this hand toned? who thought this looked good Image
what in the blue fuck is this? who approved this? who greenlit this pilot? what were people smoking in 2004? ImageImage
let's be real, this is 2004 - people thought "HDR effect" tonemapping looked good ImageImageImage
color grading is ultimately a bad idea, and shit should just look the way it did in real life. i honestly believe this and all arguments to the contrary fall flat on my ears
i can't believe this. did they air this? it looks like a movie about dying in prison. how did this pilot get approved???? ImageImage
there is absolutely, positively, no way that this is the footage that was accepted by the network. he looks like the patient he diagnoses with carrot overdose. this episode looks like Scrubs S5E7 "My Way Home" Image
did the color grader for this rerelease have deuteronopia or something? i can't picture how this got released. it's fucking ridiculous
i'm actually outright, proper angry about this. i'm furious that someone released this, which i'm positive is not what came out in 2004. it is trespass against the human race to lie like this. altering history, no matter how "unimportant," is an atrocity
all i have is my memory. all *anyone* has is their memory. unless someone has a betacam tape they can rip for us, all we can do is say "well, i don't THINK it looked like that"
a lie is a lie is a lie, the size of it doesn't matter, and i think *this* is a lie.
many people are saying this is how it looked when aired, and I can't argue with that, but god does it look bad. how did this get greenlit
god she looks like an andy warhol print Image

imagine if microsoft offered professional services to anyone who could pay. i would pay $300, one time, to have someone at MS who actually knows something log into my PC and figure out why explorer can't render thumbnails
no sfc /scannow bullshit, i mean they raymond chen that shit, they get in and coredump explorer and go "okay you have a png library that paint.net installed, that's the problem"
honestly, i'd pay any company for that if they were trustworthy, but "repair windows pc" is basically a stopword. there are hundreds of millions of people who think they have complicated and interesting problems, but don't, and millions of amoral vultures preying on them

occasionally i try to play a diablolike - i apparently bought grim dawn ages ago? i have no memory of this. but like. do you like this game? i have a question: when you look at this, do you... see something? not just a blur?
i don't understand how a human brain can contain this many numbers simultaneously unless you're a math savant. this is what every single diablo game (including current-patch diablo ii) looks like now and I just don't get it.
i don't understand what's fun about having 9 things side by side that have literally 20+ attributes i need to compare, all of which differ by a percent or two, and no shorthand whatsoever for deciding which i should use

we're in such a weird place as far as PC "retrogaming" goes. anything made before 1998 or so can be pretty easily played, occasionally straight up but usually with a variety of emulation options, but from like 99 to 2007? a tremendous number of games just won't run right
unlike the older games, which won't run at all on modern windows, the middle-era games often run but have weird problems
the most irritating ones for me are scaling and display modes. neverwinter nights 2 will run on windows 10 just fine (the gog edition anyway) but it's so hard to play it the way I play modern games.

In re my tweets a while back about the X-Wing series: not only were all star wars flight combat sims made by one company in the space of a few years, space combat sims in general were never a popular game genre at all, even beyond Star Wars
i think about this sort of thing a lot. there's genres like the first person shooter or 2d platformer where if I asked you to start listing games, even as a fairly casual player you'd probably keep going until I asked you to stop - you'd even have to summarize franchises
But then there's a couple where you'd *think* there were a lot of entries (or, at least, a lot in a particular period) but if you try to name them you come up with four or five, tops, and research doesn't really expose much more.

psygnosis combat air patrol has some of the weirdest goddamn visuals. first and foremost the 3d projection is calculated wrong in a way no other flight sim I've ever seen has done.
the attempt at the illusion of looking around the cockpit utterly fails due to the bizarre decision to freeze one of the bitmap elements in place
i've seen maybe one other flight sim that attempted to use 2d elements to simulate fluidly looking around a cockpit and it did much better than this
