    Agreed. Story telling in games is shit as whole. They try to be grown up and serious , but have no character depth or credibility. So ends up being cringe worthy

    Playable game, but isn't great tbh.

    I got free with a gpu and can't say you'd be missing much if you never played.

    Saying that I finished it, albeit ignoring the side stuff.

    Story is kinda shit though, be warned

    interesting you mention the ambient occlusion, as DSOG just put post up saying Watchdogs 2 has a form of upscaling in it a la checkerboard, and guess what ? It breaks AO

    I'm still trying to figure out what resolution it's outputting at.

    " A vertical resolution of 1620p comes up frequently, while 1440 pixels across seems to be the most common pixel-count. Stippling artefacts similar to checkerboarding also appear - so our working theory here is that we're seeing an attempt at a 2880x1620 presentation here."

    Fellow jaggy hater here. Would consider pro a worthwhile buy on that basis alone.

    It was something pushe'd me to higher resolution gaming on pc more than resolution itself. Was happy with 1080p, but hated jaggies and pixel crawl

    Fuck me, was curious what price was.

    I just built my brother a mini itx with 1060, i5 6500 and 2tb hybrid drive for 750

    Could have built him something this small but he wanted dvd drive installed.

    @BobbyDeNiro

    I agree with you. Console and pc have their places for different needs and desires.

    But that wasn't George's point tbf.

    He was saying some make pc gaming really really complicated. When it's not so far removed from console gaming.

    Much of the difficulty has been removed, and it's not like console games are never blighted by launch issues or bad ports.

    The facts are, if you want the best visuals frame rates, then you opt for pc.

    The other poster was waffling about the usual needing a 1500 pc to got 1080p 60fps...and still failing, which is really not true in 99% of games.

    I don't agree with way can seem to put down consoles times, but here i think he's right in way he's responding

    @hooli-gamer

    You say this as if it is standard thing for such a set up to regularly fail to hit 60fps at 1080p.

    It clearly isn't.

    My 980ti and 3570k can still do many games ps4 can do at 1080p 60fps at 4k 60fps and higher settings even if not ultra.

    Some of new titles i can't run 4k 60fps without dropping settings to point I'm not prepared to go to., and one or two i couldn't run 4k 60fps period.

    For example I'm sure I could get ROTR running 4k 60fps as I've had running 40-50fps , and I could easily drop more settings. Trade off wasn't worth it though.

    I ended up playing at 1600p with above ultra settings instead.

    AC Syndicate i simply couldn't run 4k 60fps at all, no matter what I did to lower settings.

    Sure I can't run every game 4k 60fps, I can't even guarantee maxed settings at 1600p 60fps, but is damn hard work to think of what they are.

    At 1080p 60fps my pc barely even breaking sweat.

    I just finished buying brother a mini itx machine lasto night with i5 6500 and gtx 1060 and that system will do ps4 pro level settings or higher at 60fps in almost every game at 1440p. For 1080p ultra it barely breaks sweat.

    Why? Cause the gpu isn't much better than one in pro. Simply because cpu in pro isn't up to scratch for many games.

    Cost? 750.

    I could have gone cheaper with similar results and wasn't anything purchased with black Friday discounts.

    I'd love to know what pc you have and an extensive list of games you can't play at 1080p 60fps , especially at console settings.

    As for 60fps being nice, I personally sacrifice resolution before I sacrifice frame rates.

    I'm in agreement.

    Was about to comment that it's amazing these performance issues didn't get highlighted in review.

    I'm sure it's great game for fans of the original, but anything with performance issues along these lines should automatically get punished with review imo

    Developers don't have a choice. Publishers decision.

    As you can see by their response about EA claiming to support it, they been sold down river by EA .
    They had no advertising, and EA pretty much decided they had no intention to make it competitive against BF1 , which was always going to be star franchise.

    To them, they just didn't see any value in giving game big advertising budget when they have bf1 which would sell more

    Well, whether it was deliberate downgrade of visuals/optimisation remains to be seen, but if it was, they kinda fucked it up if it performs worse lol

    I don't really know what to say about George.

    I have nothing personal against him and he's always been fine with me, and i like fact he fights back against trolls who criticise pc gaming, often with ridiculous comments that have no truth to them (i have more or less given up on this), but he can come across as an equally big a troll.

    I'm prone to banter and if a console troll makes comment I'll turn it back against the consoles.

    However it's all tongue in cheek

    That's my whole point. WB just don't care enough with this game. Minimal effort and cash, they sell some copies and easy money.

    Who knows, maybe if this developer was given time and resources, they would have done better job. Even a great developer will struggle with no time and money

    I'm not doubting they're a mess. But expecting 1080p 60fps is very optimistic and borderline deluded.

    Cpu could be a bottleneck for start.

    It is clear a better job was possible, but fact is WB didn't give a crap and wanted to simply try cash in.

    Everyone blaming the developers, but I'm guessing they were on shoestring budget and given no time.

    @Creamysmooth

    Indeed, hopefully in time it will become catered for in the development process, but as you pointed out, adding more formats to develop for can complicate matters and end up meaning some awful ports along way.

    When new consoles launched, pc really suffered at first with developers focusing on them, and trying to force the game on on to pc as afterthought, and no accounting for different architectural set ups. Vram was biggest issue, with some games claiming you needed ridiculous amounts, and games like Arkham knight really failing to manage this is decent way.


    Even now on pc we see some really ropey ports at times, but it's much more settled.

    I'm guessing developers will bite bullet and as pro sales increase it will get better support. Ps3 got awful support until sales picked up when they cut price and announced slim

    Only so much improvement tangible at 1080p i guess.

    Supersampling is nice when is option, but won't have same impact as 4k mode.

    60fps is great obviously when available too

    Reminds me of lead up to Xmas as kid and sneaking in and carefully opening wrapping on my games and playing in early hours of morning and sneaking it back later lol

    How you finding the pro my console peasant friend?

    You booted up tomb raider yet? I'm still drooling when playing that on pc.

    You still on 1080p right?

    I almost cracked and bought pro but would be silly at this point. I need hdr tv to get best out of it.

    I can't use with my monitor as is display port only, and I refuse to drop money on tv at same time. I'm waiting for real hdr to become more accessible.

    I'll pick up a Base ps4 or pro later for exclusives and by then I'll hopefully have decent hdr tv

    It's not cpu bound clearly if it can run on a ps4 at 60fps, but the resolution has to be dynamic.


    It doesn't seem to have enough in tank to do 1440p ultra but definitely has plenty to manage 1080p ultra

    Very difficult to even find 1080p sets these days.

    Ideally you want to wait for higher end tech to filter down to mass market sets.

    But there's decent hdr sets available at moment in mid range, but it's simply not going to give you real hdr effect. Still better than normal Lcd though

    Whilst fps will provide an advantage, in larger scale of thinks 2, it's going to be minimal, and biggest factors as ever will be how much you play game, how well you know maps, whether you play in team and are you any good.

    If they chose to work with void engine and was not suitable that's their decision. They have to accept blame. Can't imagine Bethesda forced upon them.
