Hey that was the case with Resident Evil Village which makes it certainly possible in Deathloop.

No, it wasn't. The culprit with RE:V was the Capcom DRM, not Denuvo. The most likely culprit for DEATHLOOP is the craptastic Void engine. The game is using crazy amounts of VRAM while looking mediocre at best. As far as I have heard the devs are investigating a memory leak as the cause of the performance issues because the VRAM just gets swamped with data the longer you play. The game probably fails to clear the memory correctly. It's another sloppy port but what else is new in PC video gaming in 2021?
BTW, Dishonored 2 (same engine) can still be quite wonky as well. It's simply not a good tech basis they are using for their games and it's a bit strange they did not drop it in favor of Unreal or something else tried and established.
Was it really Capcom's DRM and Denuvo had nothing to do with it? You are blaming Capcom's DRM but not Denuvo? All I remember for sure is when the pirate version came out, all the DRM was gone and it didn't have the performance issues that the legit version had.

I have a feeling this game is gonna be in a pretty good state by the time it gets to Game Pass next year
It's a Bethesda published game right so why isn't it on Gamepass already?

I expected better from Arkane. The textures are awful, the engine looks like the same engine from Prey and Dishonored. The animations are terrible but probably the worst aspect is the AI. It is dumb as rocks. And Denuvo.

Those CPU recommended specs are highly suspect. I think they are way too high. I would love to see the benchmarks. It's almost like the game is CPU bound.

This game is the development studio's first game and its low effort cash grab playing off the Alient license. The graphics are 5 years old, the animations are janky, the xenomorph AI is really bad. The level design is mostly corridors and despite it being mostly corridors and 5 year old graphics and poor animations, it still suffers with poor framerates! They couldn't even be bothered to make the characters lips move when they talk. The best thing about it is probably the upgrade system the way you have to slot in and modify abilities. That's the coolest and most innovative thing about the game. Everything else is average or falls below expectations. Always beware of a game based off a license popular property most of the time it's going to be average or below average like this game. Huge disappointment. The only way this game is going to have any longevity is if it comes out for Gamepass or is free on Epic store. The game literally tells you to not play with AI companions if you don't have friends on the higher difficulty levels. That's what will happen when the game dies and there are no human players to play with you.

This is my take from the reviews. The game is garbage, how garbage like this is considered good when there are so many clearly better co-op shooters is beyond me. To all those saying this is a good co-op shooter, what the hell are you smoking? Probably because: Aliens.....

Take a look at what a good Aliens game looks like from 1999: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlZTfQAQaoY

Look at the ligthing especially. This is a game from 1999!!!!
Damn dude I remember that game. It was crazy how good it was for 1999! The tracker was awesome and ramped up the tension.

People are acting as if the Aliens license is worth a whole bunch of money, which confuses me. There hasn't been a great Alien movie since Cameron's 'Aliens' came out in 1986. Don't get me wrong, the Xenomorph will always be one of the greatest movie monsters ever created, but there's no way a property can be worth as much without a single great (hell, at this point I'd settle for good) movie in 35 years, can it?
I think the last few movies have dramatically lowered the value of the license.

They were embarrassed how the pirated version fixed the performance issues caused by the DRM. Crackers fixed the game faster than Capcom did. Generally speaking DRM like Denuvo makes games load slower even on SSD's and in some cases also lowers framerates and/or hurts frame pacing like we saw in Resident Evil Village.

I heard good things about this when it was released twenty years ago but I never got around to playing it. It probably fell victim to "I was playing something else at the time" so I'm looking forward to checking it out.
One of the best hack and slash 3rd person games on par with Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (even though this was first person)

I recommend anyone who has forgotten or never paid attention to the No Man's Sky drama to begin with to watch this video, the whole thing, but at the very least from this timestamp. For maybe a little more nuanced perspective on what went down that doesn't paint Sean Murray as a supervillain who personally made it his mission to ruin Kxmode's life.
No offense but who is the source of that the information in this video? Isn't that information mostly coming from Sean Murray himself. You don't see how it's a conflict of interest for a guy to give his audiobiography so that he would appear sympathetic and justify his lies? Come on he's already lied so many time so often why should we trust his self justifying autobiographical video? This is far better representation of his lies: https://youtu.be/cJ-tgaE37UE

I'm guessing these guys are going to have to find a whole new line of work. That or leave the country.

The guy's last name is LeCraft and he worked for Blizzard and didn't change it to LeWarcraft? Talk about a missed opportunity. Guess he was too busy crushin' puss in the Cos-bro suite.
Oh yeah Diablo IV game director and lead designer leaving, that's not going to negatively affect Diablo IV. That's what that statement is designed to address. Also are they going to rename Jesse Mcree in Overwatch, that's the cowboy character's name in game, named after one of the guys that left?

It's a pretty good exploration game now. They've definitely earned back the respect lost.
But the question is when Murray was lying 5 years ago about all the features that were in the game, have all those features been finally put in the game or are they still unrealized after 5 years?

I'll never understand why people continue to pillory Murray for his 'promises' when every other game developer, politician, company, whatever, does the same exact thing to various extents. If you're really curious I am sure some people have made detailed, 3 hour long youtube videos comparing his promises to the current features in the game though.
I pillory everyone who lies to me and attempts to deceive me. Can you link to such a video?

Frances Townsend is a psychopath torturer for ex President Bush. She knows all about how whistleblowing is bad because that's how we learned about the extensive torture program that she lead. So this is just par for the course of a psychopath or to put it more gently someone who very likely rates high in psychopathy.
