Our PC videos of RiME

Our PC videos of RiME

Since we had to buy RiME ourselves, we first decided not to give the game any coverage considering all the content which had already been made available everywhere else. Then we were finally sent a code, an hour or so before the game was officially released on Steam, which didn't really change our mind to be honest. After launching it though, we felt we had to give you a glimpse of its beauty in good quality, so YouTube would not be the only way to see the game in action. We can't tell you anything about its length, or even its poor optimization on consoles or even PC, as we haven't seen the game on Xbox One or PS4, and our very little time with it has not allowed us to see anything wrong on PC in terms of performance. We've heard that even powerful rigs can have a hard time maintaining good FPS in later sections, but so far we haven't seen anything noteworthy in that regard. Feel free to share your experience with the game in the comments.

They made the mistake of not capping the framerate at 30 on ps4 which runs at 40 most of the time. Ps4 pro is more acceptable because it runs at 50-55 at 1080p with better graphics i think

The game is gorgeous. I really want to see AAA devs make stylized games but with high tech features because you can make some breathtaking stuff going that route. You can still make a technically demanding game that isn't photorealistic

not having a capped framerate isn't a gamebraking thing, it depends of the genera.

If the original console bioshock only had the capped vsynced 30fps option, it would felt like a laggy under a fisthank shitty experience to me. Uncapping it to have a 40~50fps albeit w/ visible tearing, but way more responsive, was a godsend.

Waiting for a price drop but looking forward to playing it.

I get what you are saying but this is a game that relies much more on presentation than responsive controls. I personaly don't like unlocked framerate as it creates issues like judder, uneven responsiveness because 1 frame can refresh at 16ms and the next at 33ms. I much rather prefer a consistent framerate and the devs to do what they can to decrease input lag

    jmd749 @MrWhite: It's good free marketting for the game though. (14 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Basically, it was a hatchet job of a review, awarding it a 3/10. They realised they fucked up and pulled it sharpish. Damage was done, though. (14 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite of course, he was talking bollocks. Had he played it for more than 5 minutes, or spent more than 2 looking in the options for the settings, he could have sorted everything out, but he's clearly inept (14 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Basically what Korn said, only he went further in saying you couldn't strafe, jump properly (or at all) and the pace of the game was gimped in favour of the VR mode. (14 Hours ago)
