Yeah I didn't like homicide for that reason. Though Vice and Arson were a lot better imo.

yea thier is a bit of stutter at loading transitions I get this too, but BI isn't as optimized as you think they added onto the code of the Unreal 3 engine due to it never supporting DX11 before and it slowed it down a bit in certain areas, those running at max detail even on a Geforce Titan drop to 20 - 30fps in several areas and its due to the way the shadows are rendered, setting dynamic shadows from Ultra to Very High will fix this, so I suggest you do it too, you won't notice a difference visually but will have better performance.

Haven't run into any areas that drop below 60 fps yet even at Ultra settings with the exception of loading slowdown. This IS an AMD game after all.

With vsync off my framerate is over 100 most of the time. Though you're right about the Ultra shadows not looking any different than very high.

did you forget to enable AA piggus? I see a little bit of jaggedness in your screens

other then that yea I suppose its AMD optimized, those on nvidia are having major slowdowns right now with shadows on full, I had to set mine from Ultra to Very High just to stay about 40fps or better

edit: I just finished Bioshock Infinate, it was great all the way through but the ending was a mindfuck though, I was confused.

BTW if you guys didn't know yet, thier is a secret ultra hard mode in this game as well (1999 mode) here is how to unlock it

On the main menu, hit this key combination:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, (Cancel), (Confirm)

its multiplatform too, works on console and PC, for PC users, hit whatever you have cancel and confirm set to in controls

Yes, AA is enabled in the in-game settings. Like most games it seems to use some kind of post process AA like FXAA, which isn't perfect but in motion it's very smooth.

Resonance on PC, WOW, thought I was getting near to the end, but then that happened, thanks to whoever gifted me this game, it took me a while to get around to it, but I'm enjoying it now!

edit: It was Killerfist! Killerfist gifted it to me on my Birthday Thanks dude if you're still here.

Been playing a fair bit lately on my new pc :3

LA Noire: Awesome world, dull-ish gameplay so far. World is good enough to keep me playing though.
Thomas Was Alone: Brilliantly presented, somewhat dull gameplay. Almost chore-like.
FTL: Horribly unintuitive, but after the tutorial you know just enough to be able to play. Slow gameplay, but rewarding everytime you win a battle.
LoL: First time i've played in ~6 months. I sucked ass.
UT (LAN): Awesome fun.
UT3: Also a lot of fun, want to play LAN but i'm the only one with the game.
Nimble Quest (iOS): Best mobile game to come out since Ridiculous Fishing, imo. Surprising replayability.
