Our videos of Slender: The Arrival

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.

So weird, in the first video at the beginning with the trees it looks like a next-gen game, but after that it looks like a PC game from like 10 years ago. :S

Either way, seems like PC is the platform to be if you're into creepy/horror games.

A little confused on the PC build. It's a nice system but a 670 is extremely underpowered. Hit me up you'd like to form a partnership and I can get you a better card. dustinpr (at) digitalhippos.com

It's not that underpowered considering the games that are available these days. The problem is we can't really afford to buy a new graphics card and I don't think you would benefit much from any kind of partnership given our current situation. Thanks anyway. :)

By the way, these videos were captured using Miguel's 2 GTX 680.

    GriftGFX @b0vril: When's the last time Call of Duty broke any new ground? They copied the exosuit movement from TitanFall, mercs/heroes from every new shooter, etc. (14 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX "almost exactly" lol (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I believe they began pre-production on their next game immediately after Advanced Warfare went gold. That doesn't necessarily mean they landed on World War 2 immediately. (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @b0vril: Really? Three years? It will have been almost exactly 3 years from Sledgehammer's last game come November. It's only been two and a half years since their last COD came out :P (17 minutes ago)

    b0vril @Tinks: What would it look like if it wasn't blatant? (20 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks followed for sure. It's really hard to ignore how blatant it is (24 minutes ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @GriftGFX: Did they follow though? I mean appareantly it's been in development for 3 years. (34 minutes ago)
