Batman: Arkham Knight» Developer suspend PC sales

Thursday 25th June, 2015 | Posted by Roguey | Comment 2 comments

Just a couple of days ago, the new Batman: Arkham Knight was released. However instead of joy, many fans found choppy frame-rates (even on high-end equipment such as the Titan X, 980Ti etc.). This has lead to a massive amount of people posting negative reviews, so much that only around the 30% mark are positive.

The developer has now suspended sales on Steam, asking people to either wait for a patch or to use the new Steam refund system to get their money back (more details here). Below is intro scene from the new Batman running on a 970GTX (not posted by me).

More salt was rubbed in, as the PS4 version runs smoothly and even has extra effects enabled. I also read that my old 680GTX (which can run most current games fine) is only capable of running Batman at low (due to the 2GB of VRAM). I know we seen quite a few bad launches from developers recently but I didnt think it would happen to such a large franchise. It is sad to see even the big AAA titles arent safe from buggy releases.

Guild Wars 2» Pricing on HoT causes problems

Sunday 21st June, 2015 | Posted by Roguey | Comment 0 comments

Just recently Arena-Net announced pricing on their new addon: Heart of Thorns. Shocked at first, Arena-Net are asking £35 for the basic, £60 for the deluxe and £80 for their ultimate edition. I never used to think add-ons used to be that expensive - its priced at the same as a new release.

However on-top of the high pricing (which is bad enough), the add-on includes the original game for free. This is great for new players, because you can buy the add-on and have the full package. However if your an existing player and just want the add-on there is no option to upgrade. Arena-Net are not offering any compensation to existing players, since they brought the original game and would be nearly spending double buying the add-on. I cant but feel the add-on is seriously over-priced.

Many players (including myself) have taken to the forum to post their frustration on the official boards - shown here.

What you think of it all?
