  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic What is your favourite/most played demo?. on the PC/Mac/Linux Society board

    Not a PC demo, but the Sonic Adventure 2 pre-release demo that came packaged with Phantasy Star Online on the Dreamcast. I must have played it over 100 times and only once got an A-rank on it. For wha...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Where da 2 times performance from console. on the System Wars board

    You're making a comparison with two of the best optimised ports in recent memory? Yeah, the advantages of coding close to the metal sort of disappear when devs do the same thing for the PC (thing is, ...

    On a related note, Saint Seiya: Soldier's Soul is coming to the PC. An anime fighter, sure, but it's still yet another fighting game, and a Bamco one at that. To quote the press release:With a massiv...

    Really exciting to see space made for the PC at such a large event. Can't wait to see what announcements are made.

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic CDProjekt admits game was downgraded.... on the PC/Mac/Linux Society board

    Actually they didn't confirm a downgrade. The info here is contradicted by an interview with Eurogamer where they state the game in its initial state was a vertical slice. It worked well for what it w...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Witcher 3 benchmarks and performance thread. on the AV / Hardware Center board

    I'd suggest most people here just play the game on High as for all intents and purposes the game does look the same. My understanding is that Ultra just cache more assets in so there's a bit less pop-...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Witcher 3 benchmarks and performance thread. on the AV / Hardware Center board

    I wonder, isn't the whole push with Maxwell cards that they do tessellation really well? If so, might people with cards like the 770/780 not see massive gains by turning water detail (which I asssume ...

    FX8350/970 user here. I set the game to the High Preset (albeit with Hairworks completely off) and I'm getting a locked 60fps 95% of the time with the odd drop to 55-ish fps. This is at 1920x1080 with...

    You need to be sprinting first. That means not only pushing the analogue stick upwards to move fowards put also clicking the stick in. If you aren't used to a PS4 controller you should know you can cl...

    Perhaps not old school enough I'd imagine, but I'm playing Max Payne 2. And wow, for a game that only came out a few years after the first one it looks amazing in comparison. Really reminds you that b...

    Doubt it. That is at least assuming we're talking about home console games. I say that because the only figures we have to suggest a near 50/50 split don't allow for apples to apples comparisons betwe...
