Sleeping Dogs quick look (PC)
Looks pretty good except for one thing, the camera hacking seems quite annoying. Hopefully there's an upgrade to make that go quicker.
a game that actually taxes your system paww
that can't be right. someone made a mistake!
It is taxing mine pretty good but running buttery smooth tho. I have it maxed out except for not using the Extreme AA(High looks fine and Extreme tanks the FPS for not alot of visual gains)I also turned off the motion blur just because I hate blur.
I just wish I played more fighting games. I am just button mashing my way thru most of my encounters and hoping to win But I am really loving this game. All the good parts of GTA in a way cooler, better looking environment with alot of cooler gameplay additions.
I linked my account over at Square Enix so I could check my stats. So far I have put in over 9hrs and I'm not even half finished
From the looks of things I'm definitely going to have to pick this one up. Can't seem to find any retail copies of it though, anyone know if it is only available through Steam?
it's sold out in stores. not sure if it's selling really well or retailers didn't order enough because the pre-orders were pretty low.
This game is great. Gives me a much needed GTA fix. According to Steam, I have logged in around 24 hours of gameplay on this game, and I not even half way finished yet.
For those who are wondering about how this game taxes systems, I play with everything maxed but the AA at 2560x1440 using the system to the left, and I average around 60 FPS.
I would have turned the AA to the "extreme" setting, but that drops FPS down to around 20. I found a workaround for those of you who still want the picture quality that "extreme" brings, but without the FPS lost. I used this SMAA Injector. If you use this injector in combination with setting the in game AA to "normal," you will have "extreme" level AA and still have around 60 FPS. I did some screenshot comparisons of "extreme" and "normal + SMAA," and I could not tell the difference, so why not?
I've played about 13 hours and it corrupted my savegame Every time I try to load the game just closes..
The game is decent, not a lot of sandbox though, just follow the missions. Very much a console port in the controls department. Graphics are pretty good though
Can someone tell me if you can do moves like a sideways dodge, or is a timed counter your only option? Also, if you miss a counter are you locked into the position you were standing in when the enemy's offense animation initiates, or are you always free to move?
Reason I ask is most (except for devs) that I saw showing gameplay often got caught now and then getting hit unexpectedly, as if not being able to react while getting hit sometimes. That combined with "console" controls as W1zzard puts it, would be a bit annoying.
the combat is timing based. it doesn't have a instant dodge button like in Assassin's Creed. you can dodge with certain melee weapons or upgrade to disarm enemies. use a controller?
good enough to make it into ur benchmark list?.. not that i want you to & i haven't played the game yet.. just curious
i'm not sure to be honest. it has a benchmark mode and would be very easy to add. but it doesn't seem like such an important title to me
game runs great maxed out solid 60 fps. pretty fun so far.
This is game is cool. I put mine on medium settings and I play iit with a Xbox 360 controller.
Anyone else getting slightly choppy video on rendered (vs the Bink) cutscenes? I have a fairly mediocre GPU (GTS 250 1GB), but the settings I'm using give me an ave FPS of 50 and the gameplay itself is pretty smooth. I'm running the HD Texture Pack too.
What settings would those be?
I'm using a gtx 460 768mb at the moment, anyone any idea what sort of settings I could play with?
45 fps average would be fine : ]
High Res Textures On
Motion Blur Off
Shadow Resolution Normal
Shadow Filtering Normal
Screen Space Ambient Occlusion Normal
World Density High
I had the res at 1600x900 with AA off and Vsync on and benched at just under 60 FPS, but there was noticeable jaggies in places. I won't know until I play some parts with lots of gunfire and explosions whether I can bump the res up any higher with AA at Med.
It's well optimized, yet taxing, because it combines SSAA with FXAA (Med is a big hit) and SSAO can't be completely turned off.
Thank you that was really helpful ( might be stuck with an 8800gt in a few weeks so knowing that I can still play even with that is great news!)
@1920x1080 I get about 50fps average and 31 minimum in the benchmark with the Asus GTX460 768 with all maxed but AA. with the 460 you have to leave AA on normal or your framerate will die
Going to see if I can have a play of this whilst I still have a GPU
I just changed it to Low AA (FXAA w/ no SSAA) and 1600x900. Looks a bit better overall and I get just over 60 FPS ave. Slightly smoother frames too, but this game just tends to be slightly choppy at times regardless of settings. I hope they can fix that in a patch, but not counting on it.
With the High Res Texture pack and decent settings, it looks so real you can almost smell the soy sauce.
How come I have no advance physics option.
they tried to make something like GTA but no they are faraway behind.
really the high resolution texture pack uses 2GB of vram?
this is like True Crime
