Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Batman: Arkham City
Rain (most recent)

Games I've beaten in 2021 that I've already beaten before:

XCOM: Enemy Within (for like the 200th time lol; always play on impossible self-imposed "ironman" difficulty nowadays as well)

Alpha Protocol (very recent, less than a week ago; beat it on Hardcore mode for first time for the nice Gold Trophy)
Can now add Darksiders to this list. Just beat it for first time. Loved the hell out of it both for action and the fascinating story. Can't believe it took me this long to discover such a truly awesome game.

And this is after only replaying Asylum, City on PC, and Origins on PS3 in the last year, so it's not like I'm out of practice.


I recently beat the remastered version of Arkham City...I didn't notice any unusual about the combat...though it might because you were used to the original versions because you recently played them....

The remastered version of Arkham City is complete dogshit. Saw weird graphical issues...the framerate was crap.....the game textures looked like mud....crazy pop-in...just overall, a bad experience.

What difficulty did you play it?


Think I startef on normal and cranked it up to hard, but didn't like how tanky it made the bigger enemies.

Yeah I'd been playing them on PC for years, so it's likely something in the translation.

Yeah, I felt that too. It's like they just focused on cranking up some graphics and lighting etc and didnt even do quality control.

I find with 360 games that are being remastered.....I just want them to remove jaggies...and uprez textures and stuff. And maybe....increase framerate if the game can handle it (...some older games with higher framerates actually break...look at GTA4 and I believe the last mission is impossible due to the inputs being messed with the higher FPS)

Basically what they did with Mass Effect....super clean and etc.

But these ones are worst than the originals! Sure..maybe the lightning effects are better but the textures are brutal..

Played on normal difficulty. Once you get Abyssal Armor enemies become easier and the armor carries over when u start playing Apocalyptic difficulty. I was so relieved to hear that.

Resident Evil 8 on PS4. It was good but too action focused a la RE4.

7/10

Yeah, I plan on playing it eventually... really looking forward to it. I've heard mixed opinions over on gamefaq's about which game is better though.

Bought II on disc, and have a Xbox Live Arcade Games with Gold version. Both unplayable without internet to download or update.

I'll be stuck playing the "deathmastered" version free from Epic Game Store.


Least I can enjoy the first properly on 360, as the remastered versions suuuuuck.

I guess it depends on what you like. The core gameplay is very similar, but Darksiders 2 has more RPG elements, like armor/weapon customization and a deeper loot system.

I love RPG games; probably my favorite genre.

Can't wait to try it out.

I'm just grateful I have most of the games I really want to play on there already.

They're both good games, but I preferred the first Darksiders. The second one was a lot bigger and had more RPG mechanics, but few if any of those actually added to the experience for me, so it just felt kind of spread thin by comparison.

Test drove Darksiders 2 Deathfinitive Edition.


Well, it ain't pretty as far as ports go. You need to restart for EVERYTHING. Changing res, restart. Switching Vsync from off to on, restart. Fullscreen to window, better restart.

Also if you turn shadows off, you get this weird looking texture that I'm pretty sure is a glitch, looks like a weird stretched out barely visable rectangle.



But otherwise seems to run well enough. Debating on whether to keep vsync on or off as there is pretty clear angles where it hitch's a little when it's on, but the screen tear when off is highly noticeable, so got to pick my poison.


Think I'll do a full play.
