Have you ever wondered or worried about what would happen if you died? Well Afterparty takes the fear straight out of going to hell in this comedic yet sincere romp through the afterlife with your best friend. Your only way of going home? Beat Satan himself in a drinking game! It is truly hilarious.
I played Afterparty on Xbox One and on controller, and I found the controls to be a little bit inconsistent at the best of times and there are quick time events that would not suit people who have dexterity issues, but these are relatively slow events.
The specs on this hardware are nothing short of impressive:
8-core Custom AMD CPU it is clocked at 2.3GHz
6 Teraflop GPU enabled 4k
326 GB/sec memory bandwidth
Optical Disc Drive
2160p @ 60Hz,
TrueHD with Atmos
2.0, 5.1, 7.1
Activation button on front
Dual band wireless with Wi-Fi
Direct for home networks
Send and receive signals
2 HDMI Ports (1 HDMI 1.4b in, 1 HDMI 2.0b out)
3 USB 3.0 Ports
What you need to keep in mind about this hardware is that it is presently stronger than Sony’s offering the PS4 Pro. Microsoft claims it to be 40% more powerful than its competitor’s models, but it does beg the question that struck me when I first saw the specs. “Isn’t this super close to being a decently specced PC?”
Given that the exclusives for this console aren’t really unique (Given the fact that you can play the majority of these on Windows anyway) it begs the question as to why you would bother to the price point of $499?
The answer to that is relatively simple – you will not be able to get that true 4k resolution if it wasn’t priced that way. Given the graphical fidelity of it, it’s unsurprising to me that it is priced the way it is. However, I fear that the console may be a little bit before its time. HD TV’s have only become standardised in the last few years. 4k TVs are still very expensive, and I fear that most people may avoid getting it for this reason. Or even worse – that they don’t realise they will need a supporting monitor to get true 4k.
It’s down to the individual person as to if they’d notice a difference between Full HD or ULTRA HD and if making that leap to 4k would justify the price point for it.
