Got it for free with my PS4 Pro bundle, this was weeks before PC launch. Gave it a brief run. Found it to be abysmal. Got PC version for free as well.

Obviously they release these sorts of games on console due to the money, but beyond that, I don't get it. Console is low FoV (I would guess 65 - 75) and 25-30fps even on Pro. Add to that the fact that even with auto-aim, the game is a nightmare to control with sticks vs. the smoothness of PC.

Nice going to PC and getting a frame rate to match my refresh rate. I had to decap ingame since it unfortunately only allows to cap at 60, then goes uncapped which goes into the 200+ range on max settings, then cap through the external program. The FoV of 105 is also nice, though I wish that could go higher as well.

The AI reaction time and accuracy is definitely tuned for console, it's really f***ing easy on PC. Same effect when I went from playing Mass Effect 2 on 360 to Mass Effect 2 on PC - maximum difficulty was still way easier just because everything about the gameplay was designed for the handicapped input experience of the lesser platforms.

Very well optimized on PC. Max settings, it isn't very technically demanding, but although it's a pretty game due to the wide color palette, it's pretty the way WoW can be - due to art direction, not due to being a tech powerhouse (unlike Gears of War 4, which was quite ugly from an artistic perspective, but incredible from a tech standpoint when I played it on max settings in October of 2016). Even in the hub areas with lots of players, I don't see much load on my system. Again reminds me what a lousy port Nioh is in the tech department, due to how heavy load that is compared to its actual visuals (Destiny 2 is definitely doing more with far less). Since the raid sizes in this game cap out at just six players (a symptom of the console roots), and I've seen performance in public events, I can say with a clear conscience that they did do a good job of ensuring Destiny 2 made intelligent use of the hardware, rather than simply dumping the console code to PC and jacking up the requirements to brute force through it. Which is what Nioh did.

All that aside, game is a 6/10 so far. But, it's something that does coop properly, and isn't total dog s***. Not many games can say this today.

I killed the Ice Queen. I'll have to get back to it sometime during the weekdays. In the meantime, my PC will have a break from being pounded needlessly by KT's s*** optimization.

I would love a Tenchu game on PC.

Destiny 2 makes me feel like I'm being dosed with a tranquilizer. Nioh makes me feel like I'm getting kicked in the teeth while a few other people are putting hairdryers on full blast and pointing them directly into my computer case.

DOOM 2016 just set the bar way too high.

Damn shame about no mods with DOOM 16 though.

SnapMap provides what most previous Doom mods did, anyway. And are on par quality wise too, which is to say, I still prefer the base game, as I do with the previous entries compared to mods.

If I knew about that I would have gotten the game on PS4 for the trophies. Anyways you play with the gun in the center of the screen? I do.

Nah man new Doom experience want new Doom all the way. The classic levels being hidden was maybe cool for new players but as someone who revisits the originals regularly, I could have gone without that nod.
