Slender: The Arrival was released on PC a while back but we hadn't had the chance to play it very much until now. This independent horror game is the sequel to the famous Slender: The Eight Pages and it still proposes a very efficient atmosphere, but it unfortunately also suffers from a few performance issues. Because the shadow effects are so demanding and the number of trees (and the shadows they cast) is so important, framerate cannot hold a steady 60 frames per second, even on good hardware like ours. There are even instances where it dropped to 30 fps on our i5 4670K (4.0 GHz, 8Go RAM, GTX 670). Pop-up can also get in the way of what is, despite all this, quite a scary experience overall.
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (5 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (5 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (5 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (7 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (7 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (7 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (8 Hours ago)
