+1

I got it whn it was $5 the other day.

 

EDIT --

 

Was having steering delay issues but thatnk to paz9x for the pm to fix it (as well as those who suggested it here).

 

Who would have though setting the FPS to 30 locked would fix it :)

 

For those who want to know .. goto Documents\Criterion Games\Need For Speed™ Most Wanted and edit config.NFS13Save in notepad and change LockTo30 from false to true.

I'm ashamed to admit that I don't actually own Bad Rats.

I guess I should be ashamed to admit that I actually paid $0.95 for Bad Rats back in 2010. 

I don't really get the hate for the game. Although I don't remember playing it.

Dang, I didn't see that one. I just got back, so I wouldn't have got it anyway. Great snatch. :)

oh come on, really? how am I supposed to respond to that without getting banned?

It's a physics game with questionable physics.  Now it's just more popular to hate it, because, the internet.

I have not noticed any issues with NFS: Most Wanted.  I get no delay with my Xbox controller, I am used to NFS games though - played every single one to the end until Carbon, then skipped a few here and there.

For me it was a fps issue. as soon as i locked the fps at 30 it was fine, prior to that it was pretty bad, weird stuttering.

I still have 100% freezes when the intro video to a mw race starts, have yet to do one of those  :cry:

What kind of PC you running and what settings you running it on?

 

I got everything on High + SSAO is on @ 1920x1080.

 

I had to turn things up (SSAO went on), just to try and stablize the framerate out. It was getting wild jumps and drops anywhere b/t 30 and 60 frames per sec. It's a bit more stable now.

 

And another time I booted it up, the game just decided to stay at 30 frames per sec at all times. I didn't enable that via the config files - WTH?

Yeah, I noticed those intro videos use up a lot of resources.  At least there are a bunch of graphics settings to mess around with.

Is there a way to fix the intro vids and get them properly running?

Yea, but that's the twist tho. Like w/Bioshock infinite, how the twist is that

In Bad Rats, the twist is that you're actually on Mars

@MysterD

I run it at all settings maxed out at with anti aliasing off at 1080.  I have Phenom X4 2.8gh(undervolted) and a GTX 660, with 8gigs  and Win7 x64.

 

I too noticed that the game jumps down from 60 to 30-40's but I expect that from an open world game.  I got a constant 50-60 with all settings at low.  And I also noticed that "Light Scattering?" affects performance a lot.

 

 

Edit:  I also used Nvidia Geforce Experience, you guys that are having crashing issues may want to try that.

I do prefer 60 FPS like most PC gamers around here.

 

But - if a game is locked to 30 FPS, the dev's built it around that, and it doesn't drop too much lower (i.e. below 25 frames and we now have a problem), then it won't be too much of a big deal.

 

Otherwise - if they lock it and 30 frame and it dips below say 25 frames. I won't be very happy. They lock it at 30, it better stay damn close to around that.

Tons worth getting. Not a ton for me though, since I already have most of them.

 

Some things that I have some interest in:

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 

DuckTales: Remastered 
GRID 2 
Legacy of Kain Pack
LEGO Batman 
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 
LEGO Heroes Pack (Lego HP 5-7 + Lego Batman 2 + Lego LotR)
Metro Franchise Pack (Actually just need Last Light. Any other codes I'll just drop here.)
 
More games!

I tried, but it's a lot of stuff. I'm picking at everything $5 and under. So far the only thing I see that I don't have is Sleeping Dogs, but it doesn't include DLC.

 

Max Payne Complete was my best purchase so far. I'm looking to see if Amazon price matches any of Steam's Black Friday sales this week.

You almost gave me a heart attack.. I thought you were giving those away! BTW I'd wait until Pac-Man is $10 or less, it's not worth more than that.

I liked when we got emails with codes for the 5 dollar credits with this promo.  Not getting any indication you get the credit, it seems like too much work on the buyers end to make sure we actually get all the credits we should be getting....also it was nice being able to give the credits we didnt use to other people without having to buy the games for them.  I know that I had to contact customer support about missing credits with the last promo....again..I shouldnt have to do this...but I guess thats part of the promo....you snooze you lose.

 

Mostly though...it made it easier to keep track of things getting emails signifying we actually have the credits and could use a code to redeem them.

Having bought it for $10 during the glitch sale on release, I can definitely say that's it's worth $10… but $20? Eh, you could hold off for at least $15 or less, just my two cents.

GRID 2

 

 

Doesn't Intel still have that Facebook giveaway for that?

It's pretty easy to win using a trick. (Aiming to certain time range (2:48-3:00 iirc), with making enough "honest" mistakes or just waiting)

 

Don't ask why. Probably bad (sorting) code?
