Not all, but way too many do this. Why can't every developer be like CD Projekt RED?

Yeah, there's tons of AAA games that run like a dream on PC (See Shadow of Mordor, Dying Light, etcetc)

However this one has been so bad it's now been pulled from Steam till they can fix it. :lol:

So bungie are walkers. Who knew? I'd have been tempted to buy a Destiny sequel, but not now after all this shit that's surfacing about this new DLC. Such wankers!

It's likely Activision but yeah, take into account the clear indications that the dark below and house of wolves were cut from the main game to be sold,and the £40 price tag for the taken king, and their solution to peoples complaints being selling extra content worth about £5 for £20... I reached level 34 but I think that might be it for me. All I have to do is the crota raid and level 35 prison of elders, might do those but I'm not paying £40 for the taken king.

I just spent the last few hours recording and editing a graphics comparison between the two, and tbh there is very little difference between the two versions. The only thing the PS4 probably has going for it is the resolution.

Or even Rockstar. Nothing wrong with delaying the port of something if you're going to do it properly.

CD project red are hardly perfect themselves. They claimed the witcher 3 would be open world, but it is not truly open. It's more like 3 or 4 open world's. It is however such a good game I can forgive the slight inaccuracy. And yeah they could have delayed the port but from what I hear it runs fine depending on settings. I'd wager the majority of people buying the game have done so on console but that doesn't excuse a poor PC version really.

Finished Devil May Cry, the new one.

It's good fun. Does nothing revolutionary, but you get to punch things in the face and it looks nice.

Also means I've completed 13 games out of my 503 on steam. Getting there bit by bit.

DMC is a great game, it got way too much flack. It's a bit on the easy side, but overall a solid hack and slash.

Picked up murdered soul suspect at work for around £7, pretty good game for that price. I'd been looking at it for a while but didn't want to pay much for it cause its not the sort of game I usually go for, but I am enjoying it.

I've nearly finished Assains Creed Unity on the PS4. What should I go for next? Bear in mind I'm a year behind. And I'd prefer the said game to be under £20 on Amazon.

My steam library has just under 80 games (including arkham origins, mass effect 1 and 2, hitman absolution, Civ5, Empire Total War, Saints Row4) and I've spent a grand total of easily under 150, I think I'm doing steam right xD

That said I've played under a quarter of them, but shush :P

If you've only played a quarter you're definitely doing Steam right.

To be fair I'm playing through what's left on my Xbox before moving over to PC fully. To be honest a main part of why I started moving over to PC was Microshaft's constant region issues.

I have over 200 games and I've only played a fraction. Granted, some of those were review copies that I have played, but still, the amount of games I have bought and never even installed is obscene. :lol:
