I've avoided the turn-based strategy genre since I began gaming, but as I'm now officially 'an old git' I find myself being drawn a bit more to these types of games. Xcom in particular always looks excellent whenever I have seen some gameplay. I must take the dive at some point and stop being such a wuss :laugh: Oh and by the way guys....

Maybe. Have you considered running at 720P with RT on? Believe it or not, it looks very good and will give playable frame-rates. Needs a strong CPU though, so you have that covered.
Good news, it (The Witcher 3 Update) doesn't nearly max out my CPU. Usage is around 25%, with 1-2 threads around 50%, the rest not even near. GPU pegged at 99%.

Bad news, it runs like shit anyway. Average FPS is around 30 with all on Ultra+, FSR Quality, which is fine, but the micro-stutters gave me a headache after just 10 minutes! Ugh! :( And they don't go away regardless of the settings used. Frame pacing seems to be all over the place. There's something wrong with the DX12 base code, methinks. Another good time to ask: did no one test this?

Yup it also wrecks my 3060 Ti on Ultra+ settings/all RT enabled and DLSS Quality/2560x1080 res. 'no hairworks'
It can be anywhere from ~35-50 FPS depending on the scene but around 40 is the average and the frametimes are all over the place.
O ye ignore the top GPU line partially broken overlay, I had to use a workaround else the overlay doesn't work currently.

DX 11 version with simply ultra+ settings even with hairworks runs fine with minor stutters and honestly even that version looks pretty good and better than before.

Even on my 3080 Ti it's 138 vs 60 fps in worse case scenario between RT off vs on, at 1080p. I do not feel like it's worth it. I'd much rather enjoy the fluidity from high fps then the extra features that RT brings to the table.

I do enjoy/like RT in some games and in those I can even utilize it with my rig on a playable level for my taste/tolerance but this update in Witcher 3 yeah nah doesn't seem to worth it like this.
The performance hit is even bigger than in Cyberpunk which I do play with some RT enabled. 'with DLSS ofc'

If I'm ever re playing Witcher 3 on NG+ like I planned to then I'm sticking to a maxed out DX 11 version.

This is the game you want. There is an online version, but I have not looked it up.

i don't like the new gory animations in witcher 3 next gen update. its like overly gory in a cringy way. i liked the way it was before.

i think i am going to revert back to last patch and just not play next gen update.

its fairly easy to do, its listed under the beta section, lets you revert back to last known patch thankfully.

Do you have motion blur and blur turned off?

Turn them both on, that took away the stuttering for me.


edit: I am currently playing the Uncharted Collection on my PS5.
Both are on. I simply lowered the quality a bit here and there, runs smooth now.

I was unaware of such changes and only reinstalled to check the graphics update and the performance, the original game already had gore finishers like cutting off heads/limbs/even in half and that was all good with me since I'm not bothered by gore in games. 'used to have gore mods installed in Skyrim/Oblivion:oops:'

Just checked and yea there is an option in GoG to play with a previous version.

Last time when I actually finished the game and put 170+ hours into my playthrough 2+ years ago I had a RX 570 playing on ~high settings with a HD texture pack from Nexus so I can only compare to that experience.
Textures seem to be about the same as the pack I had installed, on ultra+ settings there is definitely some changes like more dense vegetation and further draw distance 'some say this is the main source of stutters'.
Also the trees doesn't bend/move around that much in windy weather compared to the original, it was almost overdone/too much in the original but now I kinda miss it to be honest cause it gave forest areas a different feel/look.

In overall if I ignore the RT part of the update I like it even tho most of this was already doable with modding if someone wanted to do that.:) 'on PC that is'

how do you play these games so fast!!! wow

I know right, I've been wondering the same since I'm following/posting in this topic.
Some ppl around here finishes multiple games by the time I only manage to finish like 1 maybe 2 shorter story driven games.
For example Plague Tale Requiem took me around 25 hours to finish and that was in a span of ~2 weeks.:oops: 'I loved the game so its not cause I didn't like it'

Dunno I guess I'm not the gamer I used to be huh, playing for more than 2-3 hours/day is very rare nowadays I just don't feel it and some days I don't even game just do random shet at my PC/watch YT or a movie.
Funny thing is that I would have the time to game a lot since I live with my parents still and only have a part time job/no relationship to care about or any of the sort.


I can only imagine how long Cyberpunk is gonna take me to finish at this rate, damn I will be adding so many games to my backlog again.:laugh:

I'd say that stepping into the world of 4K will make me play a lot more than before. :toast:

I guess thats a reason as any, enjoy it.:)
In my case the better hardware I get the less I play or its the same, only difference is that I crank up the settings higher.:laugh: 'done most of my long gaming sessions in the past on potato systems when I actually gamed all day'

Playing High on Life. I'm sick and on medication that are both slowing me down. This game is the perfect pace for me at the moment and it's pretty funny.
Get better soon!

Just finished Ys 2 Chronicles for PC(bought on GOG of course) last night. I've only ever finished this game once before, on the TurboDuo version nearly 30 years ago. I don't actually remember doing it, but remember the ending. This ending was better. Not going to show screenshots(spoilers).

I've already finished Ys Origin and will be working through Ys 3 - Oath In Felgana next. Ys 4 - Memories of Celceta will be up after that.

For those interested;

All are on sale right now for those interested in ActionRPG style gaming.


EDIT:
Ok, just had a funny moment;

Count McDumbass? Sounds like something I would say! :laugh::roll:

Bad news, it runs like shit anyway. Average FPS is around 30 with all on Ultra+, FSR Quality, which is fine, but the micro-stutters gave me a headache after just 10 minutes! Ugh!
Well, turn some settings down. You don't need Ultra to enjoy the game. Tweak it and have fun!

those are stock graphics, or are you using mods? those sprites look really detailed!

also which one do you play first for the storyline to be right?

Stock but with settings maxed out. Really has aged well for a 2012 DX9C game, hasn't it?

Origins! That's the beginning, the prequel of Ys 1&2.
