Sorry NJClaw. I will finish the story at some point. That's just not the main source of enjoyment for me in this kind of game. I'm still playing it though, and still enjoying it, where many people who did finish have now moved on and are waiting for the DLC. Partly its because when I finish it I'll likely be finished with it and I'm in no hurry for that. I'm a bit odd but I enjoy myself in my own way.

A question to anyone who knows: The opaline hardtear got a buff. It now applies to physical damage as well. 10% resistance (in PVP) to all damage types sounds amazing. Too good to be true in fact. Is this a flat 10%, or is it just 10% of what you already have? Like, would my build which gets 30% physical DR get 40% or 33% by using this? If it's 40% does it stack with boiled crab? Because the wiki page doesn't mention it being a typed buff. I think it's unique and should therefore stack with everything.

Damn those japanese. 60fps lock with constant dips below and on top of that runs like an absolute ass and doesn't utilize CPU / GPU properly. They've made a shit ton of money and no proper optimization patches were released to this day.

I remember Arkham Knight was even pulled from the store for such shit, but you can get away with that if you're From Software.

Yes, you can get away with suboptimal performances if your game is good.

It's not like FS hasn't been criticized since forever for their poor PC ports. But people want to play good games regardless of the framerates.

Who cares, the game is shit anyway.

Doesn't help that they have a primarily consoletard community that excuses or outright defends it.

Yes, they can totally get away with it, because they're the best in business at what they do. Name one company that designs games with better combat than that of FS titles, I dare you.

Of course you can't. Stick to Ass Creed, guys.

I mean if you're using Uberhalit's mod then you shouldn't have too many problems. I have a decent rig and I certainly didn't see FPS drops below 60. Bigger issue is that you can't play the game online, though.

Not that I'm defending the shitty port, it's a joke. But, no reason to play the game unmodded, either.
