Heh, 4k is overrated. For gaming, it tanks your framerate too much except on older games or a very high end PC. And even on the high end PCs there isn't much wiggle room. Once games get even a bit more demanding, you're turning down settings to run at 4k, or condemning yourself to yearly $800 video card upgrades.

As for watching video, native 4k source material isn't really omnipresent, much of it that does exist is of questionable worth due to compression, and you have a lot of idiots buying 4k screens too small for the distance they sit from them.

The size of your screen isn't directly relevant to the worth of 4k, but the relative size of your screen in your field of view is. In a small room at 6 feet away from your 60-65" screen, 4k is great for video if you have a quality native 4k source. If you're 12 to 15 feet away? Hope you have a 90", or a giant projection, or you're wasting your time and money on 4k and 4k material.

If you've got a smaller screen like a 50" or even smaller, you need to be sitting at PC monitor distances.

And this all assumes you've got 20/20 vision acuity.

Not a very good implementation. Somewhat reduced performance all around.

My first playthrough was around 35 to 40 hours. I did a ton of exploring around. There was a lot to find.

Not surprising, I remember early on in the GamerGate thing Ralph Retort was kinda drummed out of the GamerGate circles for being a psycho.

Today on Blue's: People bitch about a game being too niche and ask for it to be dumbed down and mainstreamed to appeal to them.

Way to flip the script.

I don't care about realism, I just want the vehicles to behave in a more sane manner than in the first game. In fact I'd probably prefer a more arcade vehicle handling, seeing as how the game isn't a racing game, and the streets are so crowded.

In the first game I used motorcycles exclusively because there was just too many vehicles on the road and I needed to be able to squeeze between them.

The hacking is definitely harder this time. You can also run into those firewalls which instantly start a trace. Maxing out capture and stealth was the first thing I got. I also picked up the wireless hacking thingy. Thats amazing for shutting off cameras or distracting guards.

Is the wireless hacking gig something similar to Watch Dogs? I don't recall that being in HR. /shrug


Sort of. There's a little minigame you have to complete. Its just hitting E when a moving line is over particular spots. Sometimes the spots are smaller and the line is moving faster. You're up against a timer and get 3 misses. You can use your Nuke/Stop software in the minigame as well. Takes just a few seconds to complete usually.

"Annoying microtransactions."

I literally did not know they existed until I read somebody complaining about them, even after hours of playing the game. There aren't any in-game advertisements or nag screens, and it's just bullshit cheat stuff anyway.

The "temporal antialiasing" option you can turn on does an acceptable job of smoothing things out anyway, without tanking the framerate. I didn't feel a need to try to turn on MSAA.

Played for about four hours, I'm still in the very first part of Prague, still discovering new things in an area the size of 1/3 of Detroit. I don't think longevity is really going to be a problem.


There is a lot to find. It feels like there are a lot more hidden areas and interconnections, not just a simple sewer highway.

So I'm averaging around 60fps at 1440p Ultra on 6700k and Titan XP. (Neither overclocked yet, just got the rig built.) The game is definitely hungry for GPU power when you crank everything up. It also uses about 5-6GB of VRAM on highest settings from what I can see.

It's a really pretty looking game though. Blows the previous one out of the water.

Strangely I can't run the game above 15-20fps in borderless windowed mode, regardless of settings. (Like, Ultra and Medium have the same FPS.) I have to go into exclusive fullscreen, then my framerates skyrocket to what I would expect from my rig.

Not sure what's up there... can't find anyone else having the issue.

EDIT: Nevermind, I forgot I have GSync now and sometimes that doesn't play nice with fullscreen windowed in some titles.

In Cutter's defense he useually reads about the subject and make some sorta extreme comment typically based on something.
While Emton's comment is just pure stupidity and ignorance.

Yeah. Though I'm wondering why anyone would dignify that kind of post with a response. Some shitpost from a 4-post 2 month old suspect account.

I knew that Sean Murray was shifty after watching his interviews and his body language and just at how evasive he was.

I hadn't really followed the game prior to release and didn't view the interviews until after but oh my god did Sean Murray give me quite the cringe watching them after the fact. In one interview, Dorito Pope says something to the effect of painting the game as a giant galactic scale MMO, and Sean Murray just laughs nervously and agrees while staring at his feet. He was absolutely content to let misconceptions about the game float around.

And now he's got the reputation of being an evasive Molyneux-tier liar and over-promiser to show for it.
