Pollen was released quite a long time ago, back when we still had our SLI of 970s. Sadly, the performance issues we had when playing back then forced us to postpone our coverage. We're not quite sure how the game runs today for 970 owners, but we've been enjoying a steady framerate with our GTX 1080, apart from a few hiccups maybe. This first person adventure game is mainly focused on exploration and story but it also includes a few puzzles. From what we've seen, it is undeniably atmospheric, and for those equipped with VR headsets, it must be even more immersive.
@GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (52 minutes ago)

I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: Yeah, give it time. (2 Hours ago)
Loading taking too long? Why not buy a shorter loading bar!! (3 Hours ago)
And plenty of those examples are online PVP games too. Quake Champions probably isn't one of them :D (9 Hours ago)
