So when a multiplat title bombs; and bomb this game did on consoles too, it's PC's fault. But when a multiplat title does great... on PC as well, like Skyrim and BF3, it's just collateral sales?

C'mon Blue, no mention of the pay-to-win DLC? They're now selling "shortcuts" that will unlock all the items for you @ $7 per class or category of vehicles. The package deal, which unlocks everything in the entire game instantly, costs $40.
Hardly pay-to-win. It's there to incentivise new players to stand a chance against folks who've clocked 300+ hours on the game. Especially the vehicle unlocks can be difficult to achieve if you start playing now. And after this patch, you can pretty much forget about tanks unless you sport a Reactive Armor from get-go. They also did it with BC2, so nothing new under the sun.

And as far as I'm concerned, I'm done with this game. This patch proved once again, that all DICE is capable of is nerfing, more nerfing, and breaking balance and gameplay mechanics.

Meh, not really concerned. PC gamer through and through, but GTA is the type of game that's better on a console.
So you'd rather play games at 600-720p than 1200-1600p? You'd rather not have anti-aliasing, high resolution textures or modding capabilities? You'd rather have longer load times, be forced to use a controller and have to put the disk in each time? So much for you being a PC gamer through and through".
Don't forget the completely lackluster performance. GTAIV on consoles chokes severely in high-action scenes, dipping the framerate down to 20's.

At launch, I was able to play with my E8500@3.8GHz and GTX260 @1920x1200 on high-very high settings, staying around 35-40FPS outside.

Is it still Remedy Entertainment that develops Max Payne?
Translation: I want to pretend I'm jaded and indifferent about gaming industry news (even though I post on a site where 90% of the content is gaming news) and seemingly oblivious about this title by reminiscing the "good old days" and making specious observations regarding the perceived new style of the presentation; a snarky comment on how mainstream kids these days are only attracted to violence; regardless of the fact that MP & MP2 were as mainstream as it gets back in the day... and aside the grandiloquent and pompous overwritten style of the narrative, all about violence.

News Comments > PC Alan Wake Breaks Even
30. Re: PC Alan Wake Breaks Even Feb 20, 2012, 14:13 qsto
 
I think more than anything, this only tells the tale of how small the overhead of producing a PC port in this multiplatform age is.
All the assets are already there, and recompiling the PowerPC instruction set to run on x86 isn't much of a task. All that remains is little bit if tweaking here and there.

Alan Wake as a whole was under development for five years, and yet this PC port was pushed out in five months. Naturally the fact, that PC was the lead platform in the beginning probably helped out here, but the game has changed so dramatically of its origins, that it's almost like an entirely different game from what was demoed at IDF back in 2006

The game is a senseless arcade shooter that gets boring quickly. If all you're looking for is mindless arcade action go ahead and pick it up but if you're looking for serious space shooter action that has weight and depth. Sadly the game is way too simplistic. The missions are pretty canned while the production values are alright, the game itself is monotonous and it lacks a geniune feel that you are in space combat.


Freespace 2 SCP is still where it's at, get a copy of FS2 @ gog.com, hit http://scp.indiegames.us/ and get all the updates you can get way more entertainment value then this mindless indie attempt at a space sim.

As aswesome as Freespace 2 is, it still belongs into the same simplistic arcade action category with this game, or X-Wing for that matter. All these games have the same toyish Star Wars flight model. Obviously mission parameters are much more complex in Freespace 2 and the battles far bigger, but it's still "aeroplane in space" nonetheless.

If you want realistic space combat with newtonian flight model, I suggest to check out I-War and IW2: Edge of Chaos. Of course Elite II belongs into this same category as well.

Well sounds like the usual MW3 bashing.... The rest of the world happily plunked down a 1.5 billion dollars MW3. I bet each and everyone of the people posting below own a K/D ratio of about 0.2.
I bet most people here haven't even touched MW3 because they're too busy playing BF3.

Jerykk wrote on Dec 21, 2011, 05:59:
Jerykk have you overclocked your CPU? Also Check your CPU temperature. If the answer to the first question is yes, try to run the game at stock CPU speeds and report your results. Hope this helps.

My CPU isn't overheating. It's just that Skyrim is poorly optimized and has wildly different performance across similar systems. Actually, that's not entirely true. From what I've read, nobody with a C2Q has gotten good performance, so it may just be that certain CPUs don't run the game well for no apparent reason. It's strange because Skyrim is still using Gamebryo and Bethesda's previous Gamebyro-based RPGs run about a million times better.
Always makes me cringe when the first thing some people ask when a game performance is at question, is whether or not your CPU overheats. Seriously, games don't even stress CPU anywhere near to the max, and a game like Skyrim doesn't max four native threads so it's completely moot. Certain areas like Solitude or Ragged Flagon are just poorly optimized. Shadows and multiple light sources in close quarters are the biggest strain on CPU.

And as far as CPU temps go, any CPU out there, whether OC'd or not, should be able to handle 12h of IntelBurnTest, or it's really no good for nothing. Simple as that.

News Comments > Skyrim and D3D Antilag
26. Re: Skyrim and D3D Antilag Nov 28, 2011, 03:49 qsto
 
What do we need this for? Nvidia drivers have the exact same function: Maximum Pre-Rendered Frames, no? I've always set it to 1. Couple that with my "zero lag" LP3065 S-IPS, I'm pretty much lag free.

The only issue causing lag in Skyrim was the forced vsync. Couple that with forced acceleration and you've got yourself a control clusterfuck. Luckily fixing this took only couple of .ini tweaks.

Only thing that makes the controls feel weird right now is the framerate bound vertical mouse speed. In some areas, stuff like waterfalls, mist etc. really kill my framerate, meaning under 60fps. That's when the mouse starts to feel laggy, but it has nothing to do with input lag.

Bigger issue are the physics that break when you pass 120fps. You start getting all sorts of weird poltergeist phenomena with the clutter. I'm using Dxtory to cap my framerate at 100, and the mouse controls are mostly CoD -like fluid. Why 100, you say, when the display is 60Hz? To mitigate tearing, when having disabled vsync...
