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.

Based on how much enjoyment I got out of Hawken, I won't have high hopes for this one either.

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...

What's up with the X360 / PS3 era graphics? And why does the dog have flat textures for fur and walk like a malfunctioning robot with joint problems?

Not impressed. I'm sure the gameplay will be fine but they seriously need a decent engine.

This was the first thing I noticed too. After seeing life like animation on animals in games like FarCry4 including the hair that sticks out vs flat textured (old school) graphics, it's definitely noticeable. Even GTA5 animals got that upgrade.

Flat textured animals don't cut it anymore! This is 2015! lol

Man, I'm so picky with trying to have all my games under 1 umbrella, that being Steam. I hate to see such great deals that I pass up on just because of this. Oh well, first world problems.

Yeah, the main problem I see with Blizzard is you get a lot of the "fanbois" join in out of the blue, having never played that particular genre before and only buying it/playing it because Blizzard makes it, and think they either know everything right off the bat.

HotS is not something you pick up and become an expert in even a month, or 2 months, or 3 months. It's similar to a strategy game in that you have to learn and identify every single units strengths and weaknesses, when to use which hero, and how to form the proper team in a MOBA case.

I've been in the alpha of HotS since many many months ago, and I'm clueless on probably 50% of the game still in that I don't know all the perfect strategies for the maps, I don't know probably half of the heroes strengths and weaknesses yet, and they are constantly adding new ones which means you got to keep up with them.

Also the P2W is a redonkulous talk when everything can be unlocked by in-game gold and skins and mounts are just cosmetic buys, nothing game altering. I mean, this is Blizzard but cmon, they are also anal about game balancing in all their games. They wouldn't sell out I imagine on even this one.

I've only played the tutorial and first mission so far.

I would definitely not buy this game for more than $3 bucks with the content provided so far.

Well here's to content beyond the first mission!!!

lol, sorry, it didn't make sense. Ok, I did the tutorial and then first mission before I had to get out of it. With that said, the first mission is enough to know exactly what you get yourself into. It's Postal, not much else. You run around isometric view shooting everyone.

It tells you to kill X amount of peeps and mission accomplished. With that, you have some lousy exchanges with the cops and neighbors that carry guns. It's repetitive gameplay honestly, but has it's moments due to the physics and all out destruction. It's rather fun blowing up the walls and parts of a house.

Yes, it's just a twin sticker shooter with the ability to crouch, sprint, roll, and leap over some objects.

Seems like an updated Postal 1 except mostly black and greys, very dark game.

The executions get old quick because you perform them so often to regen health but they do look brutal in theory. They are not MKX over the top detailed but they are violent eitherway.

There isn't much depth thus far what I've played but for what it's worth, you can steal the cop cars and drive around GTA1 and 2 style
Also the graphics/animations aren't too shabby. The dude's hair and cloak all got physics in them so they are constantly flapping around and moving while your running around and shooting it out.

I would definitely not buy this game for more than $3 bucks with the content provided so far.

News Comments > The Witcher 3 Patch Plans
6. Re: The Witcher 3 Patch Plans Jun 1, 2015, 10:20 Xero
 
This game runs nearly flawless maxed out on my 970gtx with the exception that I don't have the Hair effects enabled (is this even needed? there are physics in the dude's hair already), and I think I put shadows at medium but might crank them up at high to see how it affects the FPS.

Currently it's running everything else on Ultra and I get smooth gameplay so I think I can afford to crank up 1 more dial.

With that said, the controls are still iffy. They seem unresponsive at times and Geralt does feel heavy to move around at times when you are turning him or trying to zero in on a spot to get to quickly but the game is good enough to make you forgive these little frustrations.
