Disappointed with Off TV Play...

#1BeysusPosted 3/8/2013 5:33:25 PM
It's a nice feature but all games I tried looked like a blurry mess. (Trine, Sonic, NBA demos)

It's like a very compressed video or something, ew.

I hope Monster Hunter looks good on the GamePad...

What you guys have to say about it?

Well I know that Sonic looks average on it...but Mario, Batman, and Scribblenauts look amazing.

I LOVE off-TV play.

There are some compression artifacts here and there, but Madden, CoD, NSMBU, Trine, and Sonic look fine to me.

It does what it says, not sure what you expected. The gamepad's screen isn't going to be as nice as a good HDTV but it looks fine.

Off T.V play is hands down the best feature. Sure the graphics could be better, but the advantages far outweigh the negatives. Batman and COD in bed? Don't mind if I do.
Beats watching episodes of Greys Anatomy with the wife and Elmo with the kids.

Blurry mess is a little strong but yes it is compressed. It has to be, unless you want a ton of latency.

PS+ has paid it's self for me. So from here on out I will refer to any new games as free.

It's easily the Wii U's best feature in my opinion.

It's a fine picture, but it seems very low contrast...

Am I actually in power-save mode or something?
