    Eh, sometimes PC just receives shoddy ports though. Occasionally a game comes out with serious issues in the PC version where seems to me you're better off just playing it on console. For example, Arkham Knight was one of those games and so was Far Cry 5 at least on certain patches. So, for Far Cry 5 when I purchased the game officially it stuttered nonstop -- I then acquired a cracked copy on an older patchset and all of the stuttering went away. My speculation based on the Overlord Gaming tests was that this was due to a shoddy DRM implementation or something, but I can only speculate.

    Another game would be "The Medium" -- this game stuttered nonstop for me on PC even after patches. I enjoyed it, but from what I gather this stuttering problem doesn't happen in the console version. Digital Foundry's talked about this some in the past but basically they've said a lot of these issues can be traced back to the game being built around unified memory on console and devs not properly reworking the asset streaming for PC. Hopefully the new windows direct storage change/feature will greatly improve this down the line though.

    In general though, assuming its not a bad port and assuming you have a good PC, yes the PC version is the way to go, but there are exceptions. Apologies if I misunderstood you, did you just mean this particular game?

    I haven't played the medium, but arkham knight and far cry 5 is a smooth 4k60 for me. WAY better than what the consoles pull off. Had a great time with both.

    Obviously you are right that it depends on your hardware - if your budget is sub 1k usd, then you are better off getting a xbox series x, unless you want to play pc specific titles.

    But if you got highend hardware then pc gaming is always better than console.

    did anyone finish the third game ? are Omega bugs ( cut-scenes mostly ) still present ?

    did BioWare fixed by any chance the weapons shown in cut-scenes ? i mean if Shep is carrying Harrier and it's still shown as an Avenger.

    any old bugs in the Leg edition ?

    I play through ME1, but I don`t remember whether there were bugs there.
    In vanilla ME2 I remember steady crush in Illium near the Liara`s office, and rare crush right at the end of Kasumi`s loyalty mission.
    In vanilla ME3 I remember various glitches in cutscenes, getting stuck near the Edi and Joker at Normandy.

    I meant I play ME1 legendary edition right now, and I have not met any bugs. And I wrote that I do not remember bugs from vanilla ME1, and listed bugs I remember from vanilla ME2 and ME3.

    PS You can specify which bugs you want to know about....

    I met old bugs in ME1 (I have forgotten about):
    - at final fight on Noveria one geth dropped under the floor, so I could not kill him and hence could not proceed to a scene with Benezia;
    - Shepard got stuck on some places in cave with Racni (side mission after the Noveria - some "listening post");
    - teammates randomly switching to pistol at fight with Thorian on Feros.

    PS
    Looks like bug with Conrad is still there too

    I started ME2 (LE) and it feel better too: lighting, gunplay, even gun sounds. I went for Mordin, and used Mattock rifle, and was surprised by the cool shot sound.

    • Fixed an issue where a character’s eyes at the end of the Overlord DLC were unintentionally red.
    probably some dev took a serious renegade run..

    Well, that character was practically tortured (and was unable to close eyes), so when I played that mission (right before the update) I was thinking that red eyes are just logical there.
    Funny thing is ALOT mod has red eyes as a bug too.
