GSY Video PC

If you've been following Mafia III in the past few years, chances are you're a die hard fan of the series. When it became known that 2K Games wouldn't send review copies to journalists, you probably started to worry about the game's potential. When you saw the few PS4 and Xbox One videos which popped out this week, you were certainly disappointed by what you saw in terms of visuals. Then you learned that the PC version was capped at 30 frames per second, which most probably made you a bit angry to have bought a new GPU to play this game. The following videos of the PC version should prove that frame-rate is not the only technical issue here, and that this third installment in the series won't be remembered as a looker. That being said, it's too soon to tell if the game isn't good. It clearly has issues, but its atmosphere is great, the soundtrack is awesome, and the story seems solid enough. Will it be enough? We don't know, but we intend to find out.
Update: 3 PC videos added.

It looks good enough and I like the plot and the gameplay seems playable without annoyance. So for me yes, the good story is enough

I ve played 5 hours so far on ps4 and its really good. There are some graphical glitches especially with the lighting and the framerate seems to be around 26-30 but the game is quite polished overall. Also gunplay feels good but the ai could be better. The story/acting is great as well and the game has a ton of great licensed songs.

The brown filter feels very last gen and just makes the game look drab.

Why are these uploaded as 60 FPS when the game is actually locked at 30.
The 60fps video shows the game as smooth when in reality is not that smooth.

Only the first 3 because they were recorded with a capture card and the video output is 60 fps, and no, it does not change how the game looks in motion. Check out the other videos, you'll see it looks the same. Game is smooth at 30, there are no frame pacing issues.

Ok just curious why it was captured at 60.

The other videos I couldnt see cause it wasn't done converting for streaming.

We've already explained it many times. The video output is a 60 fps video output, so it makes sense to capture at 60 with a capture card as it does not change how the game looks, and this way, we're sure the 30 fps capture does not add problems in the video that are not in the game. We have never doubled the actual frames to make a game look better than it is. It would not make sense to do so. It's the same with our console footage, but none of those videos make the game look like it is running at 60. Just compare the Gears of War 4 videos on PC and Xbox One.

Is there any way to hide the mission objective message or is it on screen all the time? because I really hate it when they fill the screen with useless stuff.

I love what I'm seeing so far with this game, I'll definitely pick this up on a Steam sale. Too bad I can't get it now, sold my 2 Maxwell Titan X's to pay for an exam and waiting till the 1080 Ti gets released early next year, I'll finish my exams by then and reward myself with a brand spanking new water cooled 1080 Ti with my end of year bonus. :)

What exams are you taking? I need to start going back to school.
I'm taking the first CFA exam, Chartered Financial Analyst, it'll help me earn some big bucks. But it is intense, so much to do in so little time.

Definitely go back to school, it's never too late, I'm 31 years old and am undertaking studies that will take me till I'm 35, but it'll be worth it in the end. Do what you have to do now, so that you can do what you want to do later.

I'm sorry I can't give anything on the patreon to Gamersyde for the moment, but I definitely will do next year. :)

I never trust these kind of videos 100%. There are always glitch compilation video for every game that most people wii never experience. I cant speak for pc version but on ps4 so far i hadnt had any major glitch just a few small ones, nothing too serious.

You should also never trust a publisher that doesn't give out review copies prior to release.

How can it run smooth when it's capped at 30fps? Or is there an ini file you can edit?
it run smooth, i don't know what more i can say, the game played fine, played like any other open world game for me, also i find it funny people saying the controls was bad and that the car driving was stiff, sorry say the driving is good and the games movement on foot was good also

Rockstar never does. Bethesda didn't for DOOM. It's not a rule.

What's up?
  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (21 Hours 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 (21 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (21 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think it'll be down to next gen engines making use of it where applicable. So, basically, if a game allows it, hardware permitting, it'll be used. (21 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Yeah, that's the thing, isn't it? PC's are a bit too much of an open platform hardware wise for it to be standard implementation. (21 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @MrWhite: How long until we see that kind of thing in PCs do you think? I guess consoles are more future proof than a current PC in that regard. (21 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite new api's that talk to gpu and ssd's are the exciting thing there. That'll be present in both console and PC, eventually. (23 Hours ago)
