"That company previously worked on the PC version of Warner Bros. Montreal's Batman: Arkham Oranges, as well as the recent Killer Instinct: Season Two."

I'm a bit surprised that the game runs so terribly considering Rocksteady is using the same engine as their previous two games.

Apparently WB's got some other company to handle the PC port. Iron Galaxy?

Thankfully nv control panel allows 1/2 vsync framerate so 120hz monitor refresh can still be played @60 fps but that's a workaround, not a fix.

You can use NVInspector to set specific refresh rates per game. I can run Skyrim up to exactly 85hz before the world goes physics bonkers. Starts right at 86hz.

I was totally onboard with their 290x release. Right away their drivers made me feel like I was back in time by about 5 years. Then came the random blackscreens (which still affect users based on what I see in forums, though far less so), the fact I couldn't use crossfire for 3 months because I had a dedicated sound card and plenty of other misc headaches. Never again.

News Comments > Batman Arkham Knight Launch Trailer
7. Re: Batman Arkham Knight Launch Trailer Jun 22, 2015, 15:25 Drayth
 
I was never really a comic book type geek, so it took me a while to finally try Arkham Asylum. I was sucked right in, and these are not "kiddish" games at all. In fact there is some decently creepy shit in the first game.

That's one of the draws for me of this series is seeing Batman in this completely dark, f'ed up, mature setting but still remains the familiar character that he is. The derpy sounding (at times) henchmen are about the most stereotype-like comic book element I can think of offhand.

It seems to me that the current gen of consoles came out of the gate barely able to play current games well. And these things are supposed to have a cycle of 5 - 10 years. /shrug

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Expansion Pricing Backlash
15. Re: Guild Wars 2 Expansion Pricing Backlash Jun 19, 2015, 13:49 Drayth
 
They're claiming that the expansion is worth $50. The base game isn't a factor in the pricing, they're just throwing it in.

Edit: Not saying I agree with this. But hey, I haven't followed anything concerning this expansion. If it adds twice the content, and revises the game mechanics to make it feel like a fresh new game that's totally addictive, well ok....
(I'd be willing to bet that's not the case)

Those cards with 8GB on board - I wonder if they would help Skyrim cope with using a lot of texture mods at normal playable resolutions (not 4k).


Unfortunately Skyrim has a 4gig software limit. The game just doesn't make use of anything above that limit no matter what your card has.

you say they are great on the top end but not on the low end, since I am looking at the Fury which is a high end card, then freesync monitor should be fine?
Looks like ASUS is making a nice looking freesync IPS 1440p 144hz:
ASUS MG279Q link

Make sure you find out what range Freesync covers on that monitor. With Freesync you may buy a 144hz monitor, but then find out that Freesync only works within a range of 40 - 90hz on it. That's been the average so far, it should get better over time (it's dependent on how good of a scaler is used on the monitor).

edit - Fount it in the article 35 - 90 hz

The other option is an Acer XB270Hu which I own but wouldn't recommend, I had to RMA it 3 times to get a decent panel, Acer QA is fucking ballsack.

Word on the streets is the vendors are now selling the May batch of the XB270HU and those are far more free of flaws (say that three times fast). I got an April one with zero issues (still feel like I got lucky). The initial March ones were a huge panel lottery.

They print the month it was manufactured on the box.

Edit - and yes, the monitor is goddam amazing. Even the anti-glare coating is great.

Didn't they state around Skyrim's release that the same engine would be used one more time for a non-ES's game? Here it is....

As long as there's the usual open mod support, I'm happy.

Frame rates drop in large specific increments with vsync on once the FPS of the game drops below 60 (your computer is a slave to the refresh increments of the monitor). This can be mitigated by using triple buffering which probably explains the difference between what your friend is experiencing.

Does it fuck with your mouse? I leave vsync off because of how it screws the mouse up and makes me want to punch something. Wouldn't mind getting rid of tearing, but not if my mouse feels like I'm dragging it through mud.

No, absolutely not. I know AMD had a slide comparing freesync saying that g-sync introduces latency, but someone measured that and it's minuscule. If you get a good monitor with g-sync, then you're good to go.

You can get vsync lag if you hit the monitor's top refresh, so I just use NVidia inspector to limit frames to just below my monitor's refresh. Or with the new drivers you now have the option for it to go into non-vysnc when it happens.

Games feel more responsive now, it's a huge boon for shooters (coming from a "vsync on" person).
