I tried the demo and while the graphics were nice, I'm not sure the gameplay was all that satisfying. You're literally just rolling around in a bowl with weight physics that you have to fight against to keep it moving in the direction you're trying to go. Surely this was inspired by the NES game, MARBLE MADNESS.

The only thing I'm hearing about this game is about the microstutter.
Same issue that was never fixed in Dishonored 2.
The only relief is frame limiting to 60fps... but it has to be from nvidia control panel, not in-game settings.
And even that doesn't fix it completely.

I can't say I experienced that in Dishonored 2... though with that said, I have this weird thing that occurs even in the stand alone that happened with D2 where the initial loading bar, sometimes it just sits there for awhile for no rhyme or reason. Other times I fire up the game, it zips right through it like nothing. I have no idea what causes that to occur only sometimes... I don't have anything ever running in background so it can't be something taking resources. It also appears to only be with these games.

Not much into time travel games but I've been playing the stand alone Dishonored game and it has been pretty enjoyable. Obviously not as epic in scope as Dishonored 2 but holds its own for a solid stand alone that I'm assuming will be rather short. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Waiting to hear more about this or just until it hits bargain bin before jumping into it. Similar to what I did with Dishonored. I'm honestly shocked how long I waited on Dishonored 2. It was very well made. Some of the best destruction physics in a game that were highly satisfying.

"let the way to hell Ball Runs be open"

zzzzzzz

This is one of many reasons why I have no interest in this. They should have overhauled the loot system to be more like Diablo 3, where almost any monster can drop anything. Doing Baal/Pindleskin/Whatever runs 1000 times in a row, to hunt for a specific item, isn't fun. Also, get rid of charms. The purists have Diablo 2 already, why not modernize the game for the rest of us? Oh well. It looks like the game is successful in doing exactly what it sets out to do, so I hope the purists are happy with it at least.
D2:R always aimed to be D2:HD Edition with a few UI QoL updates but no gameplay changes. In large part because most monitors these days aren't 800x600 (or the original 640x480). What SC:R successfully did and WC3:R failed horribly at.

If you want a more "modern" experience there's a lot of other good games out there and D4 is comming at some point in the future.

Yeah, I mostly agree with this. They never set out to make major updates/changes to the game. They simply wanted to enhance it for more modern PC setups. Perhaps not to the extreme (no Ultra wide), but still to do the point where probably 90% of the PC gaming market can enjoy it still.

As others said, if that isn't enough for you, you can either mod the heck out of it or look else where at this point. Blizz already knows they have a solid fanbase that will enjoy the game with the enhancements and mostly stopped because it was getting old as "f" and looked horrendous on current hardware, lol.

Call me part of the majority that does not have an Ultra Widescreen monitor and does not give 2 sh!ts about that, lol.

I'm perfectly fine with some graphic enhancements to take a 20+ year old game and make it enjoyable again in 2021. It doesn't have to be PERFECT in my eyes, just respectable.

I'm also not sure how I feel when comparing D2 and D3. D3 made the game more arcadish in ways where a skill tree didn't matter, thus making wrong decisions didn't matter. That was a pro and con to D2. It made you feel like a badass if you made the right build in D2 because you just created a monster. It also made you feel like the game sucked if you messed up the build and had to start over. I think there is great satisfaction in putting together a great build that is permanent. Perhaps give an option for those that aren't as experienced with skill trees the ability to redo it if you f up.

Someone also mentioned Diablo with a controller. No... just no... I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.

I played Far Cry 3 for a bit but remember growing tired of it at some point and only really discovered I barely was anywhere yet with the game at that point. Never tried Blood Dragon because it did look too over the top/whacky for my tastes. This probably is moot with regards to everything else I play, but I just never got around to caring enough to look into it.

Far Cry 5 was also pretty damn boring to me. I initially gave up early on finding it so dull and lacking of any personality. To my surprise, New Dawn which a lot of people trashed on, I had a blast with it. It felt like Mad Max and I enjoyed the colorful environments with home made fabricated weapons. I actually played it to the point of trying to 100% achieve it but never reached that. Fast forward like 2 years later and I finally got around to trying Far Cry 5 to get my fix again and this time around I got into it. Ended up actually beating it. Yet I'll still say, it is pretty damn dull overall and I'd take New Dawn experience over it again 100%.

Far Cry 6 is looking good though. Hope it's plays as good as it looks though.

I enjoyed Alan Wake when it came out. It has great atmosphere, but the gameplay is repetitive. I'm not sure I would want to play though it again even with a remaster. I also felt the same way about Control, which is set in the same universe.

I've been stuck on that first boss in Control, lol. The one that hovers and you have to throw sh!t at him. I'm about to quit the game due to frustration.

Well written, but beware a shit storm may just be about to flood you.

In any case...it is unfortunately that these people cannot resist the urge to post about everything on social media. I'm glad I'm too old to be caught up in this kind of foolishness. I put my foot in my mouth enough in my personal life that I really don't need to showcase myself having my foot down my throat for the world to see.

How does anyone get to be the head of a company and not know this.
Keep your mouth shut and run every public facing social media post past your legal and hr departments.

His dismissal was not even close to being "cancel cultured".

I'm sure the regular suspects will be a long claiming how he's a victim of woke or sjw bullshit. It's inevitable.

What I don't get is the people who scream from the clouds about freedom of speech this and that - don't seem to understand how freedom of speech is supposed to work. He has every right to say whatever he wants, wherever he wants. But as is the case with many things in life, he is not free from the consequences of what he says. And this is one of those consequences. Not to mention, Twitter is not the United States. It's a private company (or is it public, I don't even know anymore) etc. He may not live in the US where his speech is protected (again not from consequence though.)

And this constant bullshit about cancel culture drives me up a wall. Unless the person being "cancelled" is DEAD (and since everyone these days is so sensitive to everything, I am not calling for people to be killed or anything like that), how are they being cancelled? Because Twitter banned them or they can't post on whatever social media? That's not cancelled, since one can simply you know - talk to people the "normal" way still. GASP!

It is because popular networks like to keep throwing these words out (cancelled/woke) over and over to brain wash individuals into believing that is what it is. There will be no actual fact checking into what it means or what really happened. It just is, well if the media said it is, it must be it. This "misinformation" spreads out at a highly contagious level and you end up having everyone spew the same bs even if they don't know what it truly means.

Though it sounds good, it gets people angry, and it gets people to hate one another. It sounds like that is mostly all the media does these days in America. Get everyone so riled up and angry that you see more and more crazies out there everyday.

As you said and some others pointed out. This guy can say whatever the hell he wants. He has to live with the consequences now.

Cool. I barely played the original but thought the visuals were really good for its time. Maybe I'll give this another go when it hits. Curious if original owners get the remaster as a free upgrade, lol. Probably not.

Yes! My ancient system can actually play this game.

Same here. I could even do the Recommended except I have a 1070 and not 1080. I'm honestly not sure if I want to get this now and try it or wait until a new build. Come to think of it, Far Cry 4 was my immediate "demo" game to try once I built my current PC. I recall seeing the hair on the monkey at the beginning and being blown away.

Perhaps I save 6 for the next build and it blows me away with something else...

this goddamned game. What a shit show..

i paid full price on gog release day because i dig supporting good work. I continue to wait to play the actual game.

admittedly my love for cdpr has waned a bit..

I waited for 1) the game to stabilize and 2) the price to drop. Ended up buying it a couple weeks ago for about half price.

My system is a bit dated Alienware Aurora R5 (Intel i7-6700K, nVidia GTX 1070) and it runs the game just fine. It's not max settings or anything but it's plays well.

Your specs are similar to mine and I want to play it maxed out. Guess I'm waiting for a new build before picking it up. That's Okay though as I haven't had any urge at all to give this a shot yet.
