#12785797 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

Posted by MysterD on Yesterday, 10:11 PM

Batman: Arkham Knight PC on my new 960 4GB VRAM  at 1080p.

 

No stutters or anything, so far.

Everything here on the 1st section at Normal + all the NVidia GameWorks stuff off.

Running around the gameworld, gliding, slinging around buildings, the works - typical Batman gameplay stuff.

With the capped frame-rate, as they intended - sticks around 25-30 frames.

 

Definitely gonna have to uncap the framerate and see how it runs then w/ same Normal settings.

And also see how it runs w/ settings thrown even higher-up.

 

Also, keep in mind - I ain't even got the Batmobile yet. I will be real curious to see how it runs, once I get that.

 

Maybe it's the 4 GB VRAM buffer speaking here.

 

EDIT:
Probably worth mentioning - w/ everything in 1st section on Normal & On and the NVidia GameWorks stuff off, Batman AK PC's consistently eating up around anywhere from 3000-3800 MB of graphics card VRAM at 1080p.

That's right - this game is eating up anywhere from 3-4 GB VRAM on the regular on Normal at 1080p.

No wondering a lot of people are having problems w/ Batman: AK PC - does everyone here even have a 4GB VRAM card? (I doubt it.)
Did they even test this game + optimize it properly?

With 4GB VRAM GTX 960 - I'm able to throw Dragon Age: Inquisition at 1080p at max in the roughest area that I have run into in this game - i.e. the inside of Skyhold w/ all the fire, post-processing w/ lots of people in there and whatnot going on. Bouncing around 40-60 frames here a bit. Locking it down to 50 frames w/ EVGA Precision X 15 is the sweet spot for me.

 

I could barely push over 25-30 frames inside w/ the 560 Ti w/ some stuff on High + Medium in this area. At these same settings w/ the 960, 60 frames no freaking problem.

 

Beautiful.

 

Next test!

Daily Deal
80% off Titan Quest Gold Edition (DRM Free) - $3.99

If for some reason anyone hasn't played this - yet they love ARPG's like Diablo II + Torchlight II...

...they really should check TQ: Gold out. It's awesome.

 

Nice to see it's listed as DRM-FREE on GG. Did Nordic update it?

IIRC - it used to have some other DRM on there at GG.

 

Those who must have Steam-versions or want it cheaper - thing is, it's been cheaper for Steam-version as GamesRevolution + GMG have had the Steam-version for $3 before, according to ITAD:

64 bit cache is bit low by this days standard, most common is 64 megabit. ;)

Whoops! Thanks for correcting me on the WD Black!

Let me go fix that.

 

EDIT:

And fixed.

basically an overpriced rebranded slight overclocked r9 290x

@YBX87

Well, I'm also guessing 8GB VRAM R390x is a much better buffer for higher textures + resolution support over the 4GB VRAM R290x.

And it's probably better than what he already has.

 

@Synnarc

What vid-card were you using before this R390x?

Early birthday gift from my wife. Do I ask why AMD and not the new Nvidia? #TIFU

[AMD 380X 390X retail box]

Spoiler

Hmmmm - your wife bought a 8GB VRAM R380X R390X for your birthday.

Now that's what I call an awesome B-day gift! :D

 

Sounds like you're like me - I'm an NVidia guy, not AMD guy.

But, crap - if a loved one bought me that beast, I'd probably be doing cartwheels and stuff & give that card a shot.

I don't remember side quests in Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed.

We ain't talking about linear JRPG's like Sonic All-Stars Racing.

We talking about open-world Western-style RPG's like Test Drive Unlimited 2.

ENCORE Summer Sale Deals are on-going from both WinGameStore and MacGameStore.

 

EDIT:

Not sure if macgames5off promo coupon still works for 5% off extra - but, I'll note it anyways just in case...

Damn. I'm hesitant to play because the time is off putting...I love long immersive rpgs but I've been flying through my backlog this year because I haven't played many long games aside from baldurs gate 2. 

 

That'll end at least when FO4 drops though

Mind you, the game (Dragon Age: Inquisition) can be finished in likely quite a bit less than that. Really depends on how much side-questing you do decide to do.

 

Check HowLongToBeat. Playthroughs can range anywhere from 40-50 hours to...well, you can see where mine went (165 hours).

 

I wound up w/ a Playthrough similar towards that of a Completionist side of things - which for me, w/ a game of especially of this length, is quite rare. I believe I did all of the Loyalty Quests - since I kept bothering the important NPC's til they stopped giving me their Important quests up until they stopped giving me quests, right before the end.

 

But I also actually did most of the other side-quests - even the collect-a-thons + MMO-style quests (get X this, kill X enemies, find X area, etc etc). I didn't do all the side-quests, but a great majority of them.

 

Granted, when you finish the game - you may continue in the game-world to do side-quests. Just...not all quests will be available to you, once you finish the game - which the game tells you + warns you, right before you do the last Main Quest.

After approx. 165 hours, Dragon Age: Inquisition (PC) has been completed. Fantastic RPG. One for the ages, for sure.

New deals have flipped at both...

MacGameStore -> http://www.macgamestore.com/

and WinGameStore -> http://www.wingamestore.com/

 

Nothing really worthwhile there, IMHO.
