GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

Contrary to what the thumbnail might lead you to think, we are not going to tell you about some mysterious DLC for Mass Effect: Andromeda. No, today, we are showing you ELEX, Piranha Bytes' new RPG mixing science-fiction and fantasy elements. After Risen 2 and 3, the German studio decided to leave the world of pirates behind, but rest assured there is still some magic involved here. As usual with AA games, the technical aspect is not on par with the big studios can do, but it's still nice to see how detailed the game world is. True, the main character lacks charisma, voice acting is not very good and animations are way too stiff, but that was also true in the Risen series and there was fun to be found in those games. The main problem we have had is that the review code was poorly optimized, with frame drops and stutter that were pretty annoying when we were trying to capture the videos. Lowering the fog setting to high seems to fix the problem apparently.
Note: Once again, we could count on gog.com for the code.

Note : On remercie chaleureusement gog.com pour le code.

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (2 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (4 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (1 Day ago)
