I like it when a dev is not afraid to try something different. For $4.99 on GOG, I figure it is worth a shot.

If anyone has tried/will try this - please do update me /subbed

I do enjoy a good detective mystery, and think this caters to a niche audience that has never quite seen something quite like this before...

... or am I wrong? Can someone point to a similar title to this?

I've said it elsewhere on these forums, I'll say it once more:

I'm very proud of you all. We stood up, as a community, and fought for our dignity, and won this fight.

Gotta pick and choose our battles in the future though, I feel. Let's not get too picky about minor things and focus on the important ones.

This was just posted on the Arkham Knights Announcement page in Steam.

http://steamcommunity.com/games/208650/announcements/detail/145587678167685991

Dear Batman: Arkham Knight PC owners,

We want to apologize to those of you who are experiencing performance issues with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC. We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards. We greatly value our customers and know that while there are a significant amount of players who are enjoying the game on PC, we want to do whatever we can to make the experience better for PC players overall.

Thank you to those players who have already given valuable feedback. We are continuously monitoring all threads posted in the Official Batman: Arkham Knight Community and Steam forums, as well as any issues logged with our Customer Support (http://support.wbgames.com/). If you purchased your copy of the game and are not satisfied with your experience, then we ask for your patience while these issues are resolved. If desired, you can request a refund at https://help.steampowered.com (Steam refund policies can be found here: http://store.steampowered.com/steam_refunds) or the retail location where you purchased the game.

The Batman: Arkham fans have continually supported the franchise to its current height of success, and we want to thank you for your patience as we work to deliver an updated version of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC so you can all enjoy the final chapter of the Batman: Arkham series as it was meant to be played.


And some vids I made if people are interested.

MaxFPS 30 Nvidia on/off comparison



I (literally) could not be more pleased to see the community, as a whole, stand up and say "No, this is not acceptable," and see the publisher and developers cry back, "OK, OK... WE GET IT, WE'RE SORRY!"

Well depends on your definition of spoiler. Could you look at signs on buildings or hear things that the thugs are saying that could give something away, maybe. No major plot points though I promise
Anyways, the other video didn't reveal anything that people wouldn't have known from reading reviews and such...or watching a first 15min gameplay video.


Not true... none of the gameplay videos (primarily the beginning, or just snippets of performance problems) gave away that (spoiler) the joker was STILL alive - meaning he double-blinded his double-blind! ..... or am I crazy?

Problem is that the game not only performs horribly and have other issues like reverting to dx10 in some cases and crashing, but the game itself as a video game is horrid, the game play is basically interactive movie, this game reminds me of those fmv interactive "games" back in 90's for CD-I, except this uses in game engine..lol.

I would (respectfully) disagree, here. I refunded my Steam purchase and got it on PS4. I'm quite pleased with the level of fluidity between mode-changes. No loading screens (ever/so far)? Full freedom to explore (despite being sort-of invisibly chained to the batmobile)... it's more of what you make it, as opposed to "follow the path."

For those of us who WANT a story, that's a fine path to follow, in my book... just too bad I had to change platforms to play it proper.

.Quite honestly, I simply don't believe people who say the game runs without a problem on their rig. I have a high-end rig, new installment of windows 8.1, and one of the best SSD's and GPU's on the market. Still, when I woosh through the city, the game stutters like mad and in some places the fps is irrationally low. I know PC gaming long enough to know this isn't a hardware bottleneck, but a piss poor and abominal excuse for a port. And trust me, I'm normally the forgiving type.

Quinn watch my video below. I just made 2 videos, one with nVidia effects on and one with them off. I'll post them soon.


Krovven. Dude. You should really be spoiler tagging that shit! Seriously! You just gave away something that (despite playing through 2) I should have guessed at the start. :(((

Oh well. At least I stopped it once I realized what had happened and didn't accidentally learn any more from that clip.

Can you spoiler tag YouTube videos? You should probably at least find a better example to show off the performance, if nothing else.

Maybe my tinfoil hat is too tight, but is it really just coincidence that the Steam Refund Policy was announced exactly 3 weeks before this was released?

Ooooooh.. intrigue. Conspiracy.

That said, I think it's a stretch. I'm more inclined to point towards people like Jim Sterling making a mockery of Steam Greenlight Garbage (I'm looking at you: "Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015")

That didn't take long. I still cry laughing every time I see yet another iteration of this video.

I assume the tears are on behalf of the (lack of) teeth.

Another real world reason for not pre-ordering or buying Early Access. With the rare exception, I've been waiting a minimum of two weeks after release to purchase a game. By that point you're getting unpaid reviews and patches...and even then they're suspect.

... or, now that there's a reliable refund system in place through most distributors, form your own opinions.

Mind you, I would previously have had the same sort of mentality, but these days you can take a leap if you know you've got a bungee cord - especially if there's extra incentives for doing so.

I can't possibly be alone here in hearing what amounts to deflection back onto the gamer for...

1. Not having a top-notch, $3000 rig.
2. Having a top-notch rig then allowing the game to AUTOMATICALLY enable better quality settings, when it DOESN'T support them efficiently.
3. "Optimizing" their configuration, using either of the only two prominently supported driver tools.
4. Setting a graphic output that the game SHOULD support (but doesn't, due to performance).

These are all things, when considered together, with this deflecting piece of tech support/PR garbage, should be a complete and utter embarrassment - not only to the PC port contracted company (Iron Sky, was it?) but particularly to Rocksteady and WB Games.

This essentially amounts to coming home to your partner and saying, "Did you pay the mortgage," on the 10th of the month, hearing them say "Uhhh.. yeah, it's fine.. sure," and not fact-checking your bank balance two weeks later.

Whoops, what's that? A repossession notice? You can't make excuses or be surprised at this point, guys.

Shameful. I hope they've learned an important lesson from this debacle. Absolutely an atrocity, and moderately disrespectful.

Ironic that the very top of that page for the PS4 copy review says:

Rocksteady's epic bucks the trend of unfinished, unpolished launch code.

I don't see people screaming about it on r/ps4, either, so I'm guessing It Just Works.


Oh, right... no, I'm in agreement. I guess I should have been clearer: the review (for the PS4 version) was posted on what looks like four days before release. The PS4 version is fine... the irony part comes in when you realize that the "unpolished / unfinished" reference could now be INCLUDED in the headline for the PC review.

Laughing pretty hard at all the retards who preordered this steaming pile. People never learn.

Not to belabor the point... but pre-ordering or not, this will not be fixed today or tomorrow, in all likelihood.

I don't think it's unreasonable to safely sign-up for a preorder *IF* a refund policy (like Steam's) is in place to protect the purchaser in circumstances like these. Especially if the bonus content is worthwhile, and you're a fan (like myself) of the series and developer's history.

I think this one line pretty much sums you up as a human being.
Would you say the same thing if he said something like "I reserve the right to steal if I get desperate enough"?
Yes. Because it wasn't the stealing that's so revealing; it's that he thinks it's a right.

^this, and the fact that it's not a need (food, providing for one's family, etc.)

Don't deflect the nature of the "right" being professed. A right to thievery because one simply "wants" it is entirely different.

Origin of APARTHEID

Afrikaans, from apart apart + -heid -hood
First Known Use: 1947

pretty fuckin clear cut if you ask me

Yes, because clearly the definitions of words have never changed throughout history and we always use the original meanings. Brood

We get it. It's not offensive to you. You're privileged in that sense, to not be offended by that word, and to instead be someone who considers it harmless.

That said, can you at least agree that a bit of empathy, on how others may see the word colored with stains of blood, and distress?

If so, great - welcome to the world of empathy.

Otherwise - /shrug, you're acting a bit selfish and will never see outside of your own world of privilege, no matter the discussion.
