A shame I have to play a modded version which makes it illegal to play online. But I just can't handle the 60fps cap and the auto-centering of the camera while moving around. It feels like I am literally fighting with my mouse; like some phantom is fighting me for its control. So for that garbage alone this game should be getting lots of flak.

But yeah I am loving this game. Kinda annoyed that I can't think of a better weapon than my starter weapon, now Broadsword +14. What's the favorite weapon(s) of you guys?

Agreed with above - definitely my favorite souls game and probably in my top 10 all time.

Really like katanas so the Uchigatana you find pretty early held me up for a super long time (Bleed + a great Ash of War)

For those saying that Elden Ring is fine there are numerous Digital Foundry videos with video evidence of it being not fine as well as streamers with half second pauses.

Ya it used to pause, it doesn't any more. I have 60 hours in the game. If I go to a new area that has to do whatever a shader cache needs to do I presume it will stutter again, but I can't remember the last time I saw one.

No real issues here on PC with a 3080 and 5900x. It did stutter when loading new areas but that has gone away. I'm not sure if they fixed something or if it was indeed the shader cache needing to be generated (I read that many folks thought that was why it would stutter intermittently.)

I'm using the unlocked FPS from widescreen fixer - outdoor busy areas it's 60 to 90 FPS at 4k mostly high settings, indoors I have it capped at 118 (I have a 120 hz display)

I think the game is fantastic, but if you don't like Dark Souls games I don't see why you would like this - as someone earlier posted it is most certainly Dark Souls 4. The gameplay is nearly identical - you just have much much larger areas, a horse, and a jump button.

Personally would easily get a 10 out of 10, but I think Dark Souls games are some of the best games around and this is the best one in my opinion.
If I HAD to make a gripe, I'd say the engine isn't nearly as pretty as Horizon or Red Dead 2. It still looks terrific, though, because modern games, and From's art style is superb (imho.)

Excellent game. Plays like a mix between:

See my comment below - what's your thoughts on spoiling the game early? My understanding was that it was going to be this really big open world space game. Sort of makes me think of BG3 - playing the first act seems like it would make the eventual release much less fun.

Hate having to wait so long though as the game looks amazing!

I really liked the first game and am very much looking forward to the sequel. I've held off on the early access, though, because I didn't want to spoil the main game.

Now that my hardware can run the game properly, I have changed my tune. Even combat feels pretty decent now that the game doesn't run like shit. Low performance somehow had a bigger influence to this game than any other to me somehow.

Yep, this game is fucking amazing. I swear I fell in love with Panam, that sexy ass drama queen. This game has passion all over it. Most (side) characters text or call you just to check how you're doing, and you are free to do the same to them. One main character also functions as the comical release and I love him and V for it. Its open world should really just function as a top-notch backdrop for simply amazing, deep quests. I've only played side-quests for hours today, not touching the main quest at all, yet it felt like I was progressing through the main story. The side-quests are that impressive, with a long chain. Exactly what you'd expect from CDP have you played TW3.

I've been holding off as well, having just upgraded myself to a machine that can run it (5900x + 3080.) Having heard all the horror stories about bugs had me waiting. Is this overblown? Definitely loved Witcher 3.

. In fact, scores mean shit, especially on 1 to 10 scale. I mean, seriously, is anything under a score of 7 good? So why even have a 1, 2, 3, 4.5, 5, 6, 6.5? lol

I find value in the numbers - 1 is an awful game, 3 is bad, 5 is mediocre, etc. Do many games get those scores? No, but I don't see why that means anything, other than most studios have some quality control.

The argument I usually see about not having scores is that people will just look at the number and not read the article. While I get that argument, if I'm interested in reviews of something (anything really), I tend to check out some good reviews, bad reviews, etc. If they don't give it a score, then I just don't end up checking out their review. Since there are so many reviews out there, the score is just a convenient way to bucket it.

You can go back to EVGA and see what card/cards you chose to be notified about.

Ahh - thank you! Shows I registered to be notified on 9/18 but nothing sent yet.

For a 3080, right? They have prioritized the higher-end models, trying to get as much money from what few chips they have, so if it's an Ultra you might be getting an email soon. Cheaper Black and Gaming ones are still on 9/16 according to what I've seen. Here's a report which is supposed to be regularly updated by an EVGA employee.

I have one for all the non waterblocked 3080s, so I GUESS I'm getting close? That's really good info, thanks!

All these folks with 30x0 cards.

I've pretty much always gone purple so used some sort of turret to beat the final boss. It didn't work well on the first boss cell difficulty so I was trying green with shields as I saw some folks posted about how you could block all his attacks.

I did see you can use multiple save slots to keep practicing the final boss. I haven't tried it yet but that seems super handy.

Bought the DLC but haven't tried it yet!

I as well! When I came back I was a bit overwhelmed by all the changes. For the most part my understanding is that they've balanced most items pretty well.

My only real gripe with the game is the difficulty I'm on (one boss cell) it's pretty easy to get to the final boss, then I just get obliterated and since it takes an hour to get to him, I don't get to practice him long

I've read that most of his attacks can be blocked so I'm working on learning how to use shields - prior to this I had never really used them.

What I hope for is GOG Galaxy 2.0 to just make ALL games from all of those platforms available in one gaming software. I hope they can pull this off without getting sued to hell and back!

It is now right? I've been using GOG Galaxy 2.0 for all my games for a month or so. Seems really good.

I think the new look is great and really good on the phone! I really never went to Blues on my phone as zooming was not fun.

I would say the header of each story looks a little thick, but other than that I think it looks great.

Thanks to everyone involved, it's really nice to have blues on my phone.

I played in first person mode pretty much exclusively on PC and it played great - no complaints w/ keyboard and mouse. Game was as good as advertised.

I did play 3rd person in vehicles with controller just because it felt better to me (the game will auto switch controller type and view when going into vehicles as an option.)

Yeah, the way I described her was an incredibly charismatic awful person. I would never want to be around her, but really enjoyed watching her. Which, I think, means the actress did a great job (hated her in American Pie, haha), but the character was a terrible person (as she was supposed to be.) I enjoyed watching everyone, but would want to be around none of them.

Most of the time I feel shows run a bit long and feel padded by the end of the season, but I was surprised I actually wished this show was a bit longer.

And I totally agree on your description of the characters.

Anyone watch Russian Doll on Netflix? I hate the lead actress. Hated every character. Found the show insanely entertaining.

Ya loved it. Originally found the lead annoying but she grew on me as the show progressed to the point I'm actually thinking of watching Orange is the New Black simply b/c she was in it.
