“I’m Not Okay”
Posted at 20:16 on 14th October 2017 - permalink

My latest contribution to the Marioke video game karaoke canon – first performed by James Scott and myself 13/10/2017.

This is something of a tribute song to Digital Foundry. DF get a lot of stick from some people who see them as joyless and pedantic, but it’s hard to deny that we’ve benefited from games being put under more (legitimate) technical scrutiny. It wasn’t that long ago that reviews didn’t make any distinction between platform versions and console makers could expect their technobabble to be taken at face value.

“I’m Not 4K”
– after “I’m Not Okay” by My Chemical Romance

Well if you want Ultra HD, please try another game
I know that I have let you down, I haven’t got more pixels in each frame
My video output
The framerate graphs that DF took
Regretting that you were mistook my resolution isn’t more

I’m not 4K
I’m not 4K
I’m not 4K
At TV Out

When they zoomed in to show you all my jagged vertex seams (I’m not 4K)
Denied it time and time again
– but couldn’t fool the bloke from Mean Machines
The review quotes you put
“The graphic style is off the hook”
My GPU begins to cook, is this realtime?
Take a good hard look

I’m not 4K
I’m not 4K
I’m not 4K
At TV Out


Forget about my last gen looks
Performance graphs and benchmark hooks
But if you’ll take another look, my renderer’s had an upgrade

I’m 4K
I’m 4K
I’m 4K, now
(I’m 4K, now)

But you really need to listen to me
Because I’m telling you the truth
I mean this
I’m 4K (trust me)

I’m not 4K
I’m not 4K
Well, I’m not 4K
I’m not 4-fucking-K
I’m not 4K
I’m not 4K (4K)
