    You're the one that insulted him. This sorry SIMP is always starting mess and then plays the victim.

    Go put your PS5 panties back on, cover up in your PS5 blanky and snuggle up next to Jim Ryan. He has more time on his hands now to give you all the attention you need. ID10T!

    Exactly.

    round it up to 230,000.

    2,500,000 - 230,000 = 2,270,000

    lets say 70k was sold on on Epic (very generous I know). Thats still 2.2 mil sold on consoles alone.

    And that 230,000 peak on PC was probably on launch day, many of them have more than likely refunded the game.

    Yup...I will never support games that are designed to extract more money from players after charging full price

    Paying for quick travel points in-game? WTH is wrong with Crapcom LOL

    TBH those microtransactions are way overblown, granted - all of their MTs for recent games are pointless (especially on PC with cheat engine) but DD2 ones are of exact same caliber. Their only mistake was releasing them along with the game, if they had waited 6+ months like usual, nobody would've cared.
    All of those items are obtainable in game either way, there's a lot of mistranslation and ambiguity or deliberate misleading that paying is the "only" or "preferred" way of obtaining those items.

    Now - as far as FT goes, ferrystones or portcrystals are relatively rare but paying for one is absolutely pointless because one (or five if you had bought them all) is a meaningless number across whole game.

    Out of all issues this game has, i would focus on how atrocious the performance is (and how unlikely it is to ever improve to any meaningful degree) because the sales number basically validates that they don't even need to concern themselves with technical quality of the game.

    OT but when was Redfall broken? Broken as unplayable? I managed to almost finish it without any issues (had a free GamePass month so decided to check it out). Performance was extremely good :) GPU hardly breaking sweat.

    Actually I can forgive the performance issue as it can be sorted out over time, why play a video game at launch when all it does is making you suffer LOL.

    But I have a qualm when they created a problem mainly to make playtime longer (reduce accessibility to quick travel) and then sell you the solution to shorten the playtime :confused:. This is obviously a deliberate attempt (among others) to milk the fanbase.

    What's next? sell you DLC to boost performance?

    No more insults, otherwise there will be no more Guru3D for you.

    I think insults is just surface level problem. Underlying problem is all the people who started posting in bad faith to deliberately upset and provoke those who play and like the game. Let's be honest, majority posters here don't care whatsoever about the game. They only care about the drama this game created and they feed on negativity.

    Gurus debate games all the time. The problem is YOU and how you communicate to the community. Multiple threads are contaminated by your constant insulting, name calling and condescending language. If anyone disagrees with you, they're attacked by you. You refuse to accept accountability for your actions. Now you want to falsely portray yourself as a voice reason? Man stop it!


    @Hilbert Hagedoorn @rflair

    I personally should not have broken the rules. I should not have engaged in retaliation, name calling and bringing negativity to the forum. This is my bad. I own it. My apologies. It will not happen again.

    Rather interesting, considering you "care about this game" that is according to your voice of reason "better than 90 % of releases" and "not broken" like people who "post in bad faith" make it out to be...

    I won't argue, just found that rather ironic.

    Maybe the issues will be fixed.

    It's pure hypocrisy when one person think only he has the right to criticize games (that others may like), while others cannot criticize games that he likes anyways.

    If people cannot criticize games on basis that someone may like that game, basically we cannot criticize ANY game (yes even pay-to-win trash)

    This game is not available on Steam in the UAE, for whatever reason, yet it's in all the main gaming stores for console.

    Anyways, I got it on PS5 and yeah, the performance is lacking in some big fights, but it is very playable.

    The patch that they put out to turn off motion blur was a nice addition. Turning it off helped me a lot.

    Are you really doing this? Taking my old post completely out of context? That was my reply to another poster explaining why the game has negative reviews on the day of release. I was summarizing negative reviews on Steam and day1 issues. And I was also explaining that the game could have sold a lot more copies if publisher didn't make some questionable business decisions. These were legitimate issues and most of them even got fixed in the first patch. But congrats, you "got me".

    Now, on the later posts we were discussing that the game is "broken" with "unplayable" performance. But it is neither of those things. I think majority of people here are acting dumb or never played a big open world RPG. Please give me examples of big open world RPG that didn't have FPS problems? I can't think of a single one.
    Morrowind, Oblivion, Elden Ring, Gothic, Fallout 3 etc. (even something like Hogwarts Legacy lol) All of them had some form of performance issues.
    So if DD2 95% of the time runs at 60+FPS on decent system, and 5% with FPS drops in towns, is it "broken"? This sounds like pretty much every open world RPG I ever played.

    According to DF, on PC with recent patch in CPU stress scenarios improvement is about 7% and cleaner frametimes. At least it's something, considering main performance fix is supposedly coming with later updates.

    Odd that Digital Foundry makes a video about checking performance improvements after a patch that...[Checks Notes]...did not include any performance improvement entries.
