I want this game but I refuse to buy early access games as it's like alpha/beta testing with $$$. Hopefully this gets out of early access soon.

Sadly the result may be, let's just not release on pc at all because it's too easy for people to get refunds.

This is my huge fear, and i'm fucking stunned hardly anyone seems to realize this. I'd rather like it to be like the old days, one major fuck up port here and there.. another game needing a big patch every now and then.. It sucked but hey, worth the sacrifice of being a PC gamer.

With this refund shit, every impatient fucking moron can just press the refund button any time and my god will it hurt developers more and more before the gaming community will see the fruits of it -- if they ever will and not get completely abandoned first.

I see your point, but I also don't see how these companies shouldn't be punished for putting out pre-tested games that look like they never would of passed QC? People are spending their hard earned money on these games and expect to be satisfied almost immediately upon going into the game and playing. Why have to deal with so much bs? Yeah it hurts for refunds, but it also hurts people that pay hard earn money for an unfinished product that didn't meet expectations.

In a sense your saying, let's say it's OK for them to push out unpolished products and be rewarded for it. By issuing refunds, this will make developers and publishers think twice about rushing out a product or going cheapo with shoddy outsourcing companies. Hey, at least test the product the outsourcing company finished before saying it's OK, make it the gold copy...

Same. I play a ton and then realize there's no real point. Need another xpac with higher level cap imo. Each time they tease with this new content I get excited, but realize it's just a carrot.

This does sound like a great patch though. Man, if you didn't play it at all and started the game fresh now, the bang for your buck would be fantastic.

Also gotta hand it to Blizz, putting the kind of support into this that we only dream other titles had. The initial purchase and xpac has been a heck of a value.

My same feelings. You are just progressing thru whatever new content they dumped with the patch and once you either get bored of it or to the end of it, your back to either wanting more or wondering what was the point.
I suppose I get this feeling with most ARPG's though. The only fix I think would really help me get the drive again is an entirely new expansion with new class and act. I think most are burnt out of what's available now.

This is what happens when companies outsource to save costs. Down with outsourcing! I deal with this shieeet everyday at my job. My company going down the toilet as well.

You want to cut people's salaries or jobs and outsource, well this is what you get as the return product. Glad to see such a f**k job was done.

Wow, with a response like that, did ANYONE at Rocksteady actually attempt the PC version from the company they outsourced the port to???? Holy crap that's bad.

Ummm, we don't know what went wrong or what to do, in the meantime, set all your graphics to low while we talk to the outsourcing company to see what went wrong. Terrible.

Some of you guys complain too damn much. The original was loads of fun. I played it until I had 100% completion. Can't wait for this one.

Looks like a lot of the same which for me wasn't a bad thing. I enjoyed everything about Tomb Raider(most recent one). Normally snow environments aren't my thing but it looks like it won't only be snow based on the end of the video. Bring this one on!

Looks like it could of been a hardcore expansion to the original Shadow Warrior remake but I'll take it packaged as a sequel either way. Has the same mindless run and gun fun of the first.

I still have to get around to beating it, but it's a lot of fun.

Don't know much about this game as I never heard of it, but a quick shot over to the Steam page and at the reviews, most are negative, lol.

Can't imagine where they went wrong either!

A new Rollercoaster Tycoon? I'm so down. I wonder what changes they are going to bring aside from a graphical improvement...

The original Rollercoaster Tycoon gave me too many hours of park building. Tons of fun in that game. Wasn't so into the 3rd one even though they went 3D. I'm hoping this one is a lot better.

Highly enjoyed the first one despite not beating it. I even got the original classic just to see what it was all about and they did upgrade it slightly with better controls and smooth graphics vs the retro look. Still highly enjoyable.

I'm all down for a sequel to the remake.

Also with framerate drops?

That wasn't framerate drops, that was giving you a chance to dodge 50 bullets all over the screen! lol

Welcome to 1997.

Seriously, what the hell is with the appalling graphics? This makes Fallout 4 look nearly not terrible.

You must of forgot this is an HD remake and not much else? Basically they are doing this for new players to attempt and get into the older games by giving them a little update. They aren't doing a full on remake because that would be too costly. Rather a simple face simple and easy money.

News Comments > Batman: Arkham Knight NVIDIA GameWorks Trailer
9. Re: Batman: Arkham Knight NVIDIA GameWorks Trailer Jun 8, 2015, 15:04 Xero
 
I probably will skip this game as I have the first 2 and never got too much into them. 1 was given free from an earlier graphic card purchase and the other I believe I got for almost free from a sale so I didn't care.

But having new technologies that are PC based is always a plus. It gives us more ammunition in the long going PC-Console debate, and I always support more bells and whistles for PC gaming regardless if they make the system crawl or not. You can always turn them off if you can't handle them.

I honestly don't know how you can complain about new tech in a game aside from believing the game itself will suck? Why the hell PC game if your not going to take advantage of the fact that we get everything first before the consoles in terms of technology? If you don't like it, stick with consoles, or simply turn them off. Nobody is limiting you to 1 configuration LIKe the consoles...
