I've enjoyed this season but its pretty obvious that most of their budget went into the first episode. It's about 6 hours long while the other episodes are about 2 hours. Still, the writing is consistently good and there are actually real puzzles unlike most episodic adventure games these days.

Do they really have success with those disconnected feeling episodes?

Have you ever played a Hitman game before Absolution? Absolution is the only story-driven game in the series and it's also the worst game in the series.

why don't people wait until the game is out to judge weather it's worthy of being called Prey or not. Do you honestly think that they just took a well-known IP and turned it into something totally different?

Or is it more probably that they aren't spoiling the surprise? It's an SP game, the plot is a big part of everything it has going for it.

They've already stated that it has nothing to do with the previous game. I don't think that's inherently bad as the new game is perfectly capable of being great on its own merits. But if you're expecting any kind of ties to Human Head's game, you'll be disappointed.

I wonder if EA moving up the early access of BF1 by a day has anything to do with this coming out tomorrow. I can't help but think this is in the same vein of Blizzard moving up their overwatch beta the the same day that battleborn came out.

Same story here, 2 games almost nothing alike.

I'm pretty sure EA doesn't care at all about this. 99% of the people who play BF have never played or even heard of any Shadow Warrior game. On top of that, SW2 only launches tomorrow on PC, making it even less of a concern.

Thanks for the performance reports, that's a bit encouraging but still sounds like it needs work. Is there really upscaling? Ugh.

Yes, performance seems mediocre. https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/56ln1u/mafia_iii_vs_gta_v/

Source http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/mafia-iii-vga-graphics-performance-benchmark-review,1.html

Those benchmarks are misleading. I have a 970 and I get 60 FPS about 90% of the time. I had to turn down Reflection Quality and Antialiasing to do it but the game actually looks better with low Antialiasing and there's little to no visual difference between Reflection Quality levels.

The biggest technical issue with the game is the streaming, as there's a noticeable hitch when areas are being streamed in. It can get pretty bad when you're driving quickly through downtown areas, though not bad enough to make the game unplayable. Watch Dogs and Arkham Knight had the same issue at launch and it was eventually fixed (or mostly fixed) through patches.

That is objectively false. There's way more to do in the city than in either of the previous games. If anything, people are complaining that you spend most of your time doing said activities instead of story missions.

Like what activities? These two videos note removal of such features previously in the series.

Mafia 3 vs 2

Mafia 3 vs 1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ1YMeY07xI

Much of Mafia 3 is comprised of completing various activities to expand the rackets of each of your underbosses. These are essentially side-missions that take place in the open-world. They range from interrogating people, assassinating people, destroying cargo, stealing cargo, rescuing people, stealing vehicles, etc. In addition, there are junction boxes that you can wiretap to expose POIs on the map and tons of collectibles to find.

There's no shortage of things to do in Mafia 3, especially when compared to the previous games.

Thanks for the performance reports, that's a bit encouraging but still sounds like it needs work. Is there really upscaling? Ugh.

I don't think there is upscaling. It's just that the AA method blurs the entire screen and the chromatic aberration just makes it worse. If you turn AA down to Low (you can't turn it off completely), it's significantly less blurry. Unfortunately, you can't turn off the CA.

Pathetic. This is all shit that should have been there at release, not in the first patch. I wonder if their Steam review rating will recover.

I just realized I haven't read any reviews of the actual game to see if it's any good.
If 2K thinks people will pay full price for this turkey, they've got rocks in their head.

I'll wait till it's under $30.

I hear the story is good, but the gameplay is a yawner. Folks are also saying the city is just as devoid of activities as 2 was, which is an instant no sale for me.


That is objectively false. There's way more to do in the city than in either of the previous games. If anything, people are complaining that you spend most of your time doing said activities instead of story missions.

How is performance now? Are people actually getting 60+ FPS with decent graphics and draw distance?

You won't get a constant 60+ FPS while driving around because there's a slight hitch whenever areas are streamed in. Turning down the settings will give a nice boost to your average framerate with little to no impact on actual image quality, though.

Put about 8 hours into this after the patch came out. Uncapped framerate is definitely better, though it spikes a lot when you're driving around. As for the game itself, writing has been good so far and gameplay has been solid, if uninspired. AI is pretty stupid but that's pretty standard for an open-world game.

So, good writing + solid, if uninspired, gameplay. Yup, sounds like a Mafia game to me.

They've never said, they couldn't make the game for the price they set. Especially when it's a game made and successful based on fan loyalty from 20 years ago. So not even the slightest implication from anyone the game can't be made as advertised. Tools are the most important long term issue, i.e. important.

Official mod support is nice but not nearly as important for most games. Witcher 2 and Dragon Age both had extensive mod tools but their mod communities never really took off, which is why the devs didn't really bother with mod tools after that. Conversely, the GTA games have no official mod tools but they have huge mod communities regardless. Open-world games with the ability to continue playing after the story missions have been completed typically have the biggest mod communities and Wasteland 3 is not that type of game.

Creating the tools and documentation required for mod support isn't a trivial undertaking. I'd rather they focus on making the core game the best it can be, then worry about mod support post-launch.

The console versions are capped at 30 and will never be uncapped. There's no reason to choose them over the PC version.

I'm surprised by the amount of hate that WL2 gets around here. The combat was no worse than the first two Fallouts, the writing was solid and the quest design was good. Balance was problematic but then, that's true of almost every RPG in existence.

I'll definitely be backing WL3, even if it probably won't end up looking as good as these screenshots.

I visited their website a few months ago, and it said that you would be able to play Orcs for free. Guess that has gone by the wayside.

Uh, you can play Chaos Space Marines, Space Marines, Eldar and Orks right now. Did you not read the yellow text below the headline?

"Watch Dogs 2's driving mechanics have been completely overhauled with highly responsive skid-resistance rides that turn and accelerate quickly, and hug the road even at high speeds."

FUCKING GARBAGE.

Been playing the GTA V Redux mod a lot in the last few days, the driving is soooo perfect, cars have weight, and power, and you actually have to control the damn thing, you can't do a 90 degree turn at full speed. I like driving games that give you more power than you need, so you're forced to control it. It's called "satisfying driving mechanics".

This sounds like they're just trying to emulate trackmania, smash the accelerator to the floor 24/7, and you're good!

Ugh, I hope it's not as bad as this guy's making it sound, but it's literally the exact opposite of what many consider to be "good" driving controls.

Most players don't want a realistic driving sim in their open-world action games. Driving isn't the focus of these games. It's simply a means of getting from point A to point B.

Of course still no complete edition of Bioshock Infinite for the PC. <asshats> Biting
Why should there be one? The Infinite Remastered brings only the console versions up to the already existing PC standard.
One of us is confused. There should be a COMPLETE version for the PC. I.e. Bioshock Infinite and all the dlc. Both console systems have a COMPLETE version, but not the PC. So what am I confused about?

If you own Infinite and the season pass, you have the complete edition. There's nothing else to add. The Xbox One and PS4 versions of Infinite are just ports of the PC version.

Wow, once again CS:GO isn't only in the top 10, it's number one.

Must have been that last wave of VAC bans... I have to wonder how profitable it is for Valve, banning CS cheaters and having them rebuy every month or so.

How soon before CS:GO is excluded from the sales list so that Valve can avoid inconvenient questions?

I doubt they care; I could have phrased that better, ie: what percentage of their profits is purely from CS:GO sales? Probably not a whole lot, but not insignificant either. I am curious, but not outraged or ready to protest or something.

Nothing is illegal here(as far as I know), and cheaters should be banned. I am just amazed these same cheaters go back and buy the game again, and/or make new accounts and buy the game again, etc. Surely people are sick of CS by now? Or is the weapon skin trade that lucrative?


Item trading is pretty lucrative. There are items selling for hundreds of dollars. CS:GO crate keys are also a standard currency for game trading.

If VR had a FPS then Metro would be an amazing thing. I tremble at the thought of the system requirements though.

VR doesn't work well with any game that requires navigation. So if it is a VR shooter, it's probably going to be a shooting gallery/rail shooter rather than a proper FPS.

any word on the framerate cap?

If I remember correctly, Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse edition on steam was locked at 30 FPS.

Which is frankly unacceptable.

30 FPS was the default limit but was very easily disabled. The game itself wasn't very well optimized (on any platform) but with good hardware, you'd get 60 FPS about 90% of the time.

In any case, no, Dead Rising PC does not have any framerate cap.
