    Yeah Steam refunds seems to be doing the job. Ubi must be shitting themselves on their next game :)

  • What does it take to run Arkham Knight smoothly on PC?

  • bad09 04/07/2015

    @SeeNoWeevil

    We don't need to pay more for better ports just pay different companies. The world is not ending because a couple of crap companies try profit for little effort. There are companies like that everywhere even on consoles.

    @GreyBeard

    Crysis was a demanding game made famous for being demanding and Arkham Knight a badly made port that had it's framerate capped to hide the poor performance and was even missing graphical features. THAT is why people complain, THAT is why the Warner pulled it from sale and THAT is why they are working to fix these things.

    Bad port is bad port as George says. Got nothing to do with these "high maintenance" PC gamers silliness you keep spouting.

    Who cares what you need to play it. Fuck companies like Warner and Rocksteady off with their cheapest bidder broken ports. Buy from better companies rather than rewarding the cowboys, you are customers paying money and deserve better than this. Reply +5
  • Warner Bros. allegedly knew about Arkham Knight PC's failures months ago - report

  • bad09 03/07/2015

    @FMV-GAMER

    The guy talks absolute nonsense so I would worry about him too much.

    Talking of Dying Light I was eyeing up that up this week but Warner as publisher genuinely put me right off after hearing of Mortal Kombat and Arkham Knight. How does Dying Light run?

    I remember my cousin had a lot of ripped SNES games and used some disk drive thing. Really weird watching load up games on a SNES like an Amiga :)

    From what I read about them looking at expanding PSN I think Sony are looking more at PSN on mobile and smartTVs like you say but with MS looking at including PC in their plans it could be something Sony consider if they do go that way.

    @Mr-Writer

    With Sony looking at PSN in other devices, MS and the "Xbox" branding rather than one console you could see other manufacturers making a standard "console" SKU sooner than you think, we see it already in mobile and PC.

    It will probably move to networks rather than hardware eventually, devices that that come with Xbox live, Steam or PSN that sort of thing. I don't think the one maker of one console model will continue for more than another generation.

    @dogmanstaruk

    Yeah I know the big ones, as an adult and could only display my toys I had a Vadar and Stormtrooper on display at home until my daughter nicked them, broke the big speeder bike I had to (don't have kids and a nice collection of toys...er models :( )

    To make room for the aliens stuff and Star Trek starship collection I've amassed I've now only got a few of the beautiful Kotobukiya models (including a wicked Boba Fett!)



    and a nice collection of the Action Fleet series. Not as nice as this one though :)

  • Batman: Arkham Knight PC fixes are "significant" and "will take some time"

  • bad09 01/07/2015

    @Suarez07

    Interesting, I but I guess it is an RPG and RPG is obviously up there as one of the more popular genres. Damn amazing achievement given the quality of DS1 and their honesty about that. Maybe Warner should have admitted Batman would be a broken piece of shite beforehand and got more sales :)

    Still, proves all this "PC is not important" stuff the children yell is nonsense when you can get revenue chunks like that. Is it any wonder so many are trying to get in on PC these days.

    @Suarez07

    I've said it before, THQ claimed 2nd hand is a bigger problem than piracy. It's why games are riddled with DLC and why the online pass, and after that, the season pass was crapped out on consumers. Now we have so much game hidden behind download paywalls it costs twice the normal price of a game to see a whole one these days. :)

    Also it is a guaranteed lost sale where as a lot of the worlds piracy is in places where piracy is normal (China Russia etc) and even places you cannot actually buy these things or the taxes basically cut many out of buying that many legitimately.

    Also makes me laugh when in desperation some of them drag the poor sales into it as if they are some kind of problem when their goto bull of pirates gets pulled apart (lots of money generated from a sale, what a nice "problem" to have! :) ). A Steam sale sale (or even a "dodgy" key site sale) is still more than they'd get from that 2nd hand copy in CEX or GAME.

    I don't think even publishers use the piracy card anymore, even the fake percentages from Ubi have gone away these days.

    It's just one of those lines for comments posted by the out of touch and misinformed like "PC is dead" :)

  • Amy Hennig's EA Star Wars game like Uncharted and 1313, says Nolan North

  • bad09 29/06/2015

    I bet it's a new Bounty Hunter. the article says "it's along those lines" when 1313 is mentioned and it is was heavily rumoured that the character in 1313 was just a place holder for Boba Fett.

    Either way a new SW game will be nice and it's gotta be better than that the on-rails, mini game, vehicles are powers ups turd that is the new "Battlefront" :)

    I will never understand why developers make beautiful imagery then ruin it with film grain? It adds nothing and takes away a lot stop doing it.

    Developers, if you are going to ruin imagery at least let people turn it off themselves. I would say hopefully someone will mods it out on PC but...well we know the problems there :)

    I still give Geforce Experience a go upon installation just to see what it thinks...and then ignore it most of the time :)

    Not completely useless though, as I said it's got W3 running really nice and when I was on a 650ti it got bit more out of Crysis 2 and a couple more for me. Shadowplay is the best thing about it though.

    @Suarez07

    Agreed it's not some life destroying problem that takes away from gaming (I love when they come out with that line :) ) but you may still need tinker it just really depends on the card you have and the game in question.

    A nice high end card yeah no bother, but mid end you will have to tinker a bit to get the best out of a game on it. A lot of games do it for you now though as you say but a crappy port or massively demanding game and you'll still end up tinkering.

    As for Geforce experience it gets it wrong a lot more than right and I end up ignoring the settings it suggests on a lot of games. It sorted Witcher 3 lovely for me though to be fair.

    Probably best to settle down with someone who at least gets gaming and tech if you are a geek that is for sure. Just buy them their own hardware.... :)

    There are downsides to an open platform though, just the consoles have downsides.

    It's all about you and your preference and what you need don't worry if some prat tells you you are wrong. It's like one guy on here once listed the researching and buying of components, building a PC and putting stuff on it as a negative of why people don't want PCs but as I pointed out to him for many he listed some of the fun of the process :)

    I haven't treid downsampling on older stuff much. Some but not a lot, great feature.

    Yeah most of these broken games get fixed eventually.

    I'd take the biggest collection of games on one platform that spans decades over the ease of use of on pricey consoles any day of the week though. :)

    So far only one game has "beaten" me and that is a Transformers game on W8.1 and I'll have another crack if I can ber bothered.

    The old games were not so strict in the gameplay choice. Guess DICE should have played them before trying to make one.
