How did you find Mad Max, SL33PY? I tried playing it last month but it just wasn't doing much for me if I'm honest. First game I've dropped in about 2yrs.
Story & quests seemed really generic, combat was ok but didn't seem up to Arkham/Mordor standards and the gameworld seemed very "Ubisoft", just not half as fun to explore imo. Only real positive I came away with was that it looks GREAT, though I did admittedly only play 3hrs or so of it. Does it get much better? Worth giving a second chance at some point would you say? :)
---

Decided to play a bit of Bloodborne on NG+ last night in preparation for next months expansion. I say "a bit", but you can't really sit down for just 5 minutes of this stuff. I was there for a good 5hrs lol. Already up to The Witch of Hemwick.

Can't wait for the expansion (4 weeks away) & next years Dark Souls 3. So good :D

Well at a certain moment I was just playing to unlock more stuffs, and it is pretty generic. I think it's a cross over of Batman combined with a generic open like world. I just enjoyed is as mindlessly bashing skulls for fun. The story missions were fun but in the end, it was too thin and short

They could've done a lot more imo. Still enjoyed it while it lasted.

Expecting a lot more from Fallout 4 tbh

Aye, like their Just Cause games I guess. Good for some mindless fun in an open world to play about in but they don't really excel in any one area, at least imo.
Also, less than 2 weeks for Fallout 4 now! ^^

Booted Arkham Knight up this evening (as it re-released on PC today), though only to check performance. Took a couple screenshots whilst I was in there (and there's a photo mode too. God help me when I come to play it for real lol)

Batman: Arkham Knight [PC]
Image Image
Game looks fantastic but performance is still not perfect, sadly. At 1080p I'm still seeing dips here and there, nothing like before though (which were absolutely dreadful) - mostly in the 50s, with mid 40s being the lowest (with everything on max, Nvidia stuff included), though it's sticking around 60 for the most part. Perfectly playable at those settings now (at least on my system) though there is still room for improvement. 1440p/60 on max should be possible with my system but I'm averaging 40fps there, even if I start turning the Nvidia features off. There's still no SLI support though (they're working on it) so I'm not using the full potential of my cards either.

It's really going to depend mostly on your system (and RAM) at this point I think, as reading around there are still people suffering similar problems as before even if they've seen slight improvement. The game admittedly runs a lot better for me now (whilst still not perfect as I say), but not everyone has 16GB of RAM for example or a system like mine.
We are still working with our GPU partners to add full support for SLI and Crossfire. In addition, we are working with these partners to address stability issues on certain cards related to the latest drivers.
After extensive testing, a hard drive paging issue with some GPUs on Windows 7 may occur after extended gameplay sessions. If you encounter this, simply re-launching the game will resolve the issue.
For Windows 10 users, we’ve found that having at least 12GB of system RAM on a PC allows the game to operate without paging and provides a smoother gameplay experience.


Going to wait until SLI support is in at the very least (I didn't buy two cards to settle for 1080p, not that it's a solid 60fps anyway lol) before I start a playthrough but hopefully they have some more improvements to come as well. You know what's funny? Even SW Battlefront had SLI support and that was a bloody beta...
(Side note: Anyone who already owns the game or buys it before Nov 16th will get free copies of Arkham Asylum, City, Origins & Blackgate at some point in the near future. No idea if those will be giftable or not for those of us who already own them, as I suspect most people will. Well, the first 3 anyway...]

November is here and it sure is a good time to be a gamer. So much to play! :D
(Anno 2205, Fallout 4, AC Syndicate, SW: Battlefront, Bloodborne: The Old Hunters - and those are just the ones I'm getting lol]

Only started it late this evening so haven't played much of it just yet, got hooked on Bloodborne again hehe.
Like what I've seen of it so far, although there's no SLI profile for it yet so performance isn't as good as it could be for me. Hopefully Ubi/Nvidia get that done shortly though.

Very nice. As much as I want to get more games, the Battletech KS just wrapped up and that was $135 out of my pocket. That followed with FM16 (currently playing the beta) and FO4 coming out in a very short while I'm holding back on anything else until the holiday sales kick in.

Aye, less than a week until Fallout 4 now, though I haven't yet decided whether I'll start it on the 10th or not. I'm tempted to play AC Syndicate first, really fancy trekking around Victorian London right now :D

Not playing much tonight other than the intro & testing resolutions and what not but will get stuck into it later today/tomorrow!
Performance seems good for me even without the SLI support which I was happily surprised by I must admit. 4K ultra is giving me around 30fps, with 2880x1620 averaging around 40-45. Gonna play at 1440p for now (until we hopefully get working SLI) so I can/should be able to maintain 60fps on ultra. It's not really going to compete with The Witcher 3 in the visuals department but it still looks pretty damn good on PC all the same. Expect some more screenies during the week and don't worry, will be careful of spoilers :)
[Edit: Actually, can get around 45-50 fps at 4K when using "force alternate frame rendering 2" in the Nvidia control panel]

Had to stop doing this as it seemed to be causing my game to crash :(
Sometimes works for a while & then will just start crashing every few minutes. Gets annoying.... Back to 1440p for now but Nvidia & Beth are working on a SLI profile so I should be good for 4K once that's out. Hopefully soon!

What site are you using to host your pics? I want to make mine larger but can't seem to get tinypic to save larger than what you see from my FM16 screenies.

    Pretty simply to use but it isn't always obvious at first. It took me a bit of finding :)

Syndicate has been pretty damn great so far. Really happy to say that (especially after Unity) as I was really looking forward to the London setting but (at least so far) it hasn't disappointed. Rogue was decent too I may add, but I'm really enjoying Syndicate and I'm loving Jacob & Evie. Turning out to be 2 of my favourite characters since Haytham. Quite a nice surprise after the disappointment that was Fallout 4 too!

Been trying to record, but ShadowPlay is being obstinate here. 99% of the time it just refuses to record at all, and the one time I did get a recording, the video had no audio that I could tell.

Soooo sweet. Can't wait to fly this thing!
The Division beta, Rise of the Tomb Raider & XCOM 2 are coming up in the next few weeks so I expect to be taking some pics in those when they arrive. Might get The Witness too depending on its price :)

Ya, sometimes it'll work flawlessly for me whilst other times it'll decide for itself what it wants to do heh. Try a reboot if it's been a while since you last did one. When I've run into problems, a reboot has usually fixed it and got it working again for me :thumb:

I'm a little late to the party with this but since I haven't seen anyone else mention it - the beta version of GeForce Experience now supports screenshot capture. So, you can now update your drivers, record gameplay, stream and take screenshots all from the same software. No need for FRAPS or anything else now and they are also saved as .png's too (in the same folder you set for recordings) so you're not dealing with compressed jpgs either. Pretty sweet, I just took these with it ;)

Genuinely can't wait to play ROOTR sometime soon - it looks absolutely stunning!

Need to finish Arkham Knight first though, which is likewise superb for those who haven't played it!
