PC players have been waiting for the release of NieR: Automata for 2 weeks, and apparently, the wait may not have been worth it. The PC port of the game seems to suffer from several issues that are quite unacceptable in such a game. To begin with, activating Vsync results in locking the framerate at 30 fps in gameplay sequences, at least on our rig. The only workaround we have found is to play in borderless window mode, which wouldn't be a problem if such a display was indeed available in the game. We then had to find some outside help, with this dedicated program. Alas, even after doing all that, the game still doesn't feel very smooth, despite what our FPS counter keeps saying, which makes the whole experience a little unpleasant to say the least. A few other problems have also been mentioned on the Internet, like the 30 fps cutscenes, which caused the game to get mixed reviews on Steam yesterday - it has improved since then though.
that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (2 Hours ago)
Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (2 Hours ago)
The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (2 Hours ago)
We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (2 Hours ago)
I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (5 Hours ago)
put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (7 Hours ago)
