    @Fake_Blood Can't download on PC, but will report on performance tomorrow (unless DF beats me to it). It's an EGS exclusive, sadly. Not being a hammerhead shark, I'm on a 16:9 monitor.

    Edit: It's apparently just over 60 gigs on PC. That lack of a preload is really, really going to hurt people who don't have high-end broadband.
    My resolve to not get an Epic store account is waning.

    That Epic Store really is barebones. You think with all their money it would be top notch, it really is quite baffling.

    @JamboWayOh I can understand them not having some of Steam's more recent features. But pre-loads have been there for the better part of a decade now. I tend not to be that fussed about them myself - 200mb Virgin cable - but for people on slower connections, they're a godsend.

    I really should of gone pc myself but I refuse to use the EGS. At least with console disc I can get rid and get some money back. White folk are broke these days.

    That's because you all keep buying avacados for breakfast.

    I'm not that posh. Just give me chicken in a tin and some smash.

    Put a few more hours in today and discovered this game has world events. Every now and then a notification will pop up giving you a place to go to and a short description - 'central maintenance: defend agents' - something like that. You have twenty minutes to get there and complete the objective, and if you die (even if you're doing something else and decide to ignore it), you fail it and it's gone. The rewards seem quite decent from the couple I've done.

    It's an odd thing to have in a single-player game, but along with the side missions and challenges, it gives you something else to do.

    If I had to guess, I'd say I've put about eight or nine hours in so far. Shame this game doesn't track statistics on Xbox One.

    Yeah, was looking at the achievements earlier and saw that. I'm on mission 5 myself.

    I don't think it's because it's not officially launched yet, as it just says, "this game does not track statistics."

    Just starting mission 7. Surprised there's no difficulty settings. It's about right for me at the moment though.

    As it's getting more hectic so is the FPS getting even worse :/. Never seen anything like it on PS4.

    @Bichii is that a Pro or standard PS4?

    Standard. They should have toned down some of the effects on base model

    Apparently even PC has issues later in the game. I'm hoping we get some perf patches soon.

    @Derblington Still a few hours until the PC version unlocks for non-reviewers. Will try it when I get home from work this evening. But yes, have heard reports that performance is fairly shocking. Will see how it holds up when I throw a 9900K and 2080Ti at it... but suspect this may end up being dropped to 1440p if reports are to be believed.

    Thankfully, even the reviews that call it out have said the game is still worth playing.

    From the Resero Network (PSTrophies/XboxAchievements) comparison:
    X/Pro: drops a frame here and there.
    S/PS4: drops to 20-25.
    One: Drops to 15.

    I'm tempted to buy it but I have a feeling it will struggle on a base PS4

    That's some difference between the S and the standard One, considering there's a 7% difference in GPU clocks between the two.

    I'll wait for Digital Foundry, seems more reliable. Although they don't usually test the standard One anymore.

    Christ, that's sobering for the OG One. I'd almost hope they won't make the same mistake of making a console that can barely last a console generation.

    This might have to wait for my next graphics card upgrade. It doesn't sound like my 1080 will cope even at 1080p.

    Is this a slightly better Quantum Break?

    Now that fights are getting more hectic where I am, I am noticing drops in the bigger ones (on One X). I wonder if part of it is that so much of the environment is made up of discrete physics objects, which have a habit of flying about and then also throwing up more particle effects.

    How long does it drop to 15? I mean it's shit either way as an action game has to have a consistent frame rate but if it's long drops then it's a hard, hard pass.

    And considering both Awake and QBreak were a big bag of meh (imo) it's not hard for me to avoid this.
