I have the party conversation bug. My crew just about never talk to each other icon_cry  Part of me wants to shelve it till they fix it, but I'm enjoying the rest of it too much.

all the gameplay and exploration sections run at a solid 60 fps on Ultra-everything

What hardware do you have?  I have a i5 2400 with a GTX 770 card and 8 GB of ram.  I am not seeing 60 FPS on Ultra everything at all.  I have to knock shadows to Medium and turn off the MM something antialiasing while setting the other AA to low to get around 60 FPS in non open areas.  In the Hinterlands I get about 30-40 while battles are going.  I honestly thought my hardware would do better with the game.

Did you install the latest nvidia drivers? According to the in game benchmark I picked up about 8fps min and max. I have an i7 and a 770 and 8gb of ram. getting a pretty consistent 45 fps with the mm turned off.
Sure wish I could minimize some of the hud stuff though.

So I'm stuck with the hud quest notification in the upper right? For some reason I find it distracting and wish I could make it go away.

interesting crawley what res are you at? I play 1680x1050 on ultra with an i7 and a 770 with 2gbram, 8 system ram and it all runs smooth at about 35.

Haven't had a chance to look at the manual yet. Is there any way to disable that lame quest notice in the upper right screen? Or is it maybe/hopefully an intro section thing?

First time I've bought something for day 1 in years. Think there could be any hiccups when everyone activates at once?
7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/18) on: November 17, 2014, 04:48:43 AM
I got a work bonus so I broke my year long deal of buying on deep discount only and am getting DAI. Just looks to good, and it's my favorite type of game.

Downloaded this today. Works as advertised. Took me a while to figure out it was under the 3d tab and down a bit on the nvidia control panel. After all that, didn't like it on Inquisitor. Made the text and characters too small. Will try it out on other games for sure though.
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 10/24/14 on: October 24, 2014, 08:06:44 PM
I'm playing Inquisitor, a rpg. It's a game that's right in my sweet spot. Just into act 3.
11  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: GeForce DSR Tech - Play games at higher resolutions than normally can on: October 24, 2014, 04:18:40 PM
Thanks for the heads up! I will have to download this and try it out this weekend. What card are you playing on?
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Legend of Grimrock II - looks sweet on: October 22, 2014, 08:01:07 PM
The puzzles in the first game really turned me off after a while. Last third of the game I needed a walkthrough to get anywhere. Bummed me out because I liked most of the game otherwise. I agree the sequel does look pretty.

One of the most frequent complaints Iíve seen is that the save points are really spread out.  Iím waiting to see if PC patches/moders can add in the option to save anywhere or at least put in some additional check points.  You can argue that checkpoints add to tense atmosphere of the game all you want but I donít have the time to deal with that silly nonsense.

I'm not too excited about this either, especially if you narrowly escape death and then have to do it all over again because you couldn't save.

+1 exactly. It would suck all the fun out for me.
14  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: So...those 900 series graphics cards on: September 28, 2014, 04:40:26 AM
Well.....Bethesda just announced that they recommend 4gb vram for "The Evil Within."  Which sort of makes me urpy as I bought a 770 with 2GB last year. But I suppose it depends on what res you like to play at and how much antialiasing you have to have. If you want to be ultra and game in 4k, probably need 2 new cards in SLI. I'm perfectly happy with 1680@1050 so I believe I'm okay for a while.
15  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Another video card question on: September 14, 2014, 02:28:31 PM
looks like a geforce 750 TI would be a good choice. here is a Tom's hardware page that gives you some options.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-3.html


All mainstream cards use PCI-E now. While I believe they are up to PCI-E 3 now, any PCIE card will fit in any pcie slot, it just won't take advantage of the extra bandwith the latest slots offer. But with what you are running, you won't even feel it.  hope this helps.

I really enjoyed the Two World games but to each his own. I just finished TW2 DLC and then went looking for the next project from Reality Pump as I like their stuff. So I found Sacriligium but what concerns me is it's been in developement for a long time, and no news has been posted on the site linked since 2012. So I don't know if it's still alive or not.

I've been running it since it came out on multiple machines and Os's without incident. Doesn't mean it wasn't messing yours up though.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (06/16) on: June 17, 2014, 02:59:50 AM
If the Steam sale does start Thursday, and they have a lot of my wish list on there, I may be buying lots of stuff. None of it recent releases though.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Bloodborne (previously known as Project Beast) on: June 10, 2014, 11:35:19 PM
God Damn it! I so want to love these games. But to those people who say with Dark Souls if you just take your time and learn the moves you will not have a problem I call BS. At least BS for me. I'm a very methodical player and yet in DS I just died over and over and over. I grind my way to a new area like New Lordos and just get wiped immediately. I've been playing these games for 30+ yrs. I'm not an idiot. But DS just crushed me. Yet I love the idea of these games and 80% of them I love. I so wish they would have a real easy mode. The purists would scream bloody murder but if it's optional I can't see who it would hurt. Go ahead and flame me if you want.

Shadowrun returns, Dead mans Switch. Enjoying it so far. It seems I like turn based a lot more than real time.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: When do you buy games? on: April 30, 2014, 08:30:51 PM
I wait for sales, always. Nowdays I just about always wait till it hits $10 on Steam or elsewhere. I don't play multiplayer so I don't have to worry about that. It has the added benefit that by then the game is completely patched. There has also been times where I was able to stay away entirely when something turned out to be a total mess. My will power might be tested this fall because a lot of RPG's are coming out that are right in my sweet spot. But it's worked well so far.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Lords of the Fallen on: April 26, 2014, 02:32:06 PM
I've had Darksiders 2 sitting in my back log forever. Maybe I should give it a try.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Lords of the Fallen on: April 25, 2014, 08:11:22 PM
I saw this. Looks interesting, but if it's as freakin hard as DS where you have to repeat things over and over to try and get anywhere, forget it. And I'm not trying to start some flame war, really. There were so many thing in DS that were right up my alley and I so wanted to love that game. Eventually had to quit as I couldn't get anywhere.

No manual that I know of. AC has always been kind of crappy for that. There are decent wikis around if you google that. While I am by no means an expert, I am far along in the game now and believe I have figured out how most things work. And other people here know much more than me I'm sure. You should be able to get any question answered.

I have a lot of DVR'd shows to catch up on, so not as much gaming as usual. But I will be plodding along in AC Black Flag. trying to get enough metal to fully upgrade my ship so I can blast the bottom third of the map. It's kind of a slog.

To the Steam wishlist it goes!  Bring on the eventual absurdly good sale prices!


Thanks for reminding me! That's exactly what I need to do. When it hits $10, I'm there.

I still don't get all the Bioshock Infinite hate, most of which I've heard from press. It was my GOTY last year and I couldn't stop playing it once I started, and pondered the ending for days after I completed it.

I certainly didn't hate Infinite; I enjoyed it and played it to completion. I think the problem was unrealistic expectations from the audience.  The original Bioshock was one of those games where everything just clicked, and the whole was greater than the sum of its parts.  Infinite's "parts" were all well done and polished to the nth degree, but it never transcended those parts like the original did.  And I think that's what most people were expecting; which is kind of like asking lightning to strike twice.  Even the best developers can't hit a grand slam each and every time, but Levine's track record has been stellar and most gamers expected he could simply do it again.  He came damn close, but Infinite didn't have that certain je-na-sais-I-don't-know-what that his previous Shock games had.

I think this is a fair description of how I felt. While the individual parts were well done, they never really came together for me.

I'm likely alone in my opinion, but I felt the Bioshock games were a bit overrated. For sure they deserved to be ranked excellent, but IMO not AAA status in the 90+ percentile range. I'm not convinced another talented lead and dev team can't match what's bee done so far with the series. I feel bad for the staff who lost there jobs and hope they get picked up quickly by other studios.


I think the first Bioshock I'd call excellent. It was different in a very fun way from just about everything else I'd played and I was totally entertained by it. But BS2 was not up to that and I just played BS infinite a couple of months ago and didn't like it at all.
So mostly I agree with you.
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steam "Early Access"...do you do it? on: February 18, 2014, 11:45:01 PM

I find myself enjoying this. Still learning all the systems a bit. So one of the first treasure maps I found, with the group of three palm trees? Why did they draw the big shipwreck on there if that wasn't part of it. I'm sailing all the hell over the area because I'm not sure how close or far it could be from the actual co-ordinates looking for a wrecked hull. Duh. Had to look up on line. At least now I know to ignore that stuff.

haven't seen that before Forge, but that's exactly the case in Dark Souls.  If you think there isn't any feedback to tell you what you did wrong, you just aren't looking at it.

People are too used to hand holding and/or on rails gameplay that any time the screen doesn't flash 'YOU DIDN'T PRESS THE X BUTTON FAST ENOUGH, TRY AGAIN' they seem to miss it or just assume it's too hard and move on to another game.

Honestly Harkonis, I find this remark condescending and obnoxious. I've been playing these games for 25 years and I don't need hand holding or rails. DS just got to a point for me that it wasn't fun and I don't need people telling me I'm doing it wrong or I don't get. It's a great game for players that it clicks for. But there are a great many people for whom it didn't.  I'm sure you didn't mean anything by it, but I don't think that's the best way to express it.

Then say it didn't click for you in the first place instead of saying the game doesn't provide feedback, which it actually does in most cases.

It didn't click for me because it didn't provide enough feedback, for me. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. And I'm not alone in thinking that.

What rez do you like to game at? Just curious. Since I have no desire to fork over for a new monitor I'm at 1650x1080 and my 770 is breezing through everything with all effects maxed. But then, I don't have Crysis 3 yet!

I am pretty sure you mean 1680x1050. smile

I would guess most people who buy high end video cards are rocking at least a 1080p (1900x1080) or higher resolution. I would think your card will be more than good for quite a while. I think the current "sweet spot" for price vs performance is probably a 760. (I stare forlornly at my nearly 6 year old gaming pc with a 460 in it....)
There is my dyslexia again Tongue

Yeah, a 460 is what I replaced.
