Call of Duty: Ghosts and Colonial Marines were bad games, even if they didn't have performance issues. Dishonored 2 is one of the best games I've played.
I did consider the performance issues. For two paragraphs. I let people know that they may experience issues. Nobody is being misled. Everything people need to know is in the text of the review, not the number at the end.
> I get an acceptable frame rate most of the time. But it does bounce around. A lot. It might be 50 one moment, and then 100 the next, though it’s generally lower. I’ve also had an issue with a specific area, the Dust District, which caused my frame rate to tank, sometimes going below 30. And more annoyingly, the graphics options just don’t seem to matter. Only a few elements seem to make any difference, and even they sometimes don’t change anything.
So the game drops down to 30FPS at times, with noticeable drops below 60 at other times...
When a AAA game is unable to maintain a solid 60FPS, and you give it a 10/10 is saying to the developers and publishers "oh yeah, it's totally OK for you to deliver unoptimized games to the consumer, if they have problems, they can deal with it, as it's a 10/10 game"
If anything, this release just shows that Bethesda's recent policy change when it comes to review copies is a massive detriment to the PC gaming community.
Sites like this should be punishing the publishers and developers for delivering a shoddy port to PC. Not rewarded with high scores and non-stop praise.
You did go on for two paragraphs. 2 large paragraphs talking about poor performance, but your score at the end of it completely neglects those paragraphs.
At the time of writing, the Steam reviews for the game are "Mixed". Over 3000 positive, and over 2000 negative.
This isn't just a case of user based issues. This is a massive performance issue across numerous types of machines, and should always be taken into account when writing official reviews for a product.
You are giving Bethesda a free pass for handing out a terrible PC port.
If this was an overall review across all consoles, then I could understand the score. But this is a PC centric website. If a game runs badly for people, and you are not getting a solid 60FPS throughout, then it should be questioned.
You are very much correct. I read the reddit post and apparently Sean said that when you get close enough to another player you will connect to their "private server". If this is how it works and the servers were having issues, then nobody would've been able to connect to someone else's server, meaning they wouldn't be able to see each other, which also explains why the time of day was different. When base building comes out we will be able to see if it actually is multiplayer because we will be able to see if we see what other players see. We might even be able to see if multiplayer is a thing when PC comes out because it'll be easier to communicate across steam and you can data mine to see if there even is a player model.
The delay was to add more options on PC... 21:9 support and FOV options.
Sure Sony probably also had something to do with it, but the developers can't exactly say no to them, they are their publisher.
Mother or Father, it's still irresponsible of a parent to let their child watch something that is not targeted at their age group... then proceed to complain about it.
Why don't they also let their child play GTA? It's exactly the same, then they can complain about the violence and depiction of women in that game too.
You clearly misunderstand the nature of the complaint. He's saying that Tracer makes a poor role model due to the sexualisation of a character that doesn't suit it. He's not complaining about sensitive material like GTA, he's not even complaining about Widowmaker, he's simply saying that Tracer being sexualised sends a mixed message.
Edit because I can't reply again: a) He lists the 95% spunk as a good thing, b) I don't think you know what that means because it has nothing to do with flaunting yourself in a sexual manner.
I'm repeating myself here but Widowmaker is still unchanged. Neither Blizzard nor the 'SJWs' are taking your butts away.
If you have a read of the article you're commenting on, you'll discover that Blizzard didn't just do it because one person complained.
Yeah, you will be able to customise your character, but this appears to be the default armour set. Just like Shepard had a default appearance.
