Yep. I haven't bought a Ubisoft game since Black Flag because I can't stand their horrendous optimization. I will keep not buying them until they either fix their shit or I get a CPU that can brute force consistent 60 fps. And only if they release on Steam of course.
Optimization is the least of my issues with Ubisofts games. The boring and repetitive checklist gameplay is a huge turn-off for me. Too bad, because lots of their games have amazing looking open worlds.

I suppose there is no way to easily retrieve and list your games owned in a document ? For every gaming service ?

Good I didn't buy Watch Dog Legions. It's a mess.
Quality wise it qualifies as an Epic exclusive.

Constant stutters while driving around. I assume my CPU can't keep up? I'm altogether heavily CPU limited, especially without Ray Tracing enabled.
Cars without RT reflections can look weird in motion. The Sky with DLSS enabled flickers and looks grainy. Car controls with a keyboard are 💩 and not much better with a gamepad. The game doesn't feel very polished and a bit janky.

RT reflections are nice and seeing the game world being reflected in buildings is awesome. But the rest of the game doesn't look that good.

Ah and did I tell you that this SP game must be online all the time and that it installs anti cheat software?
All to protect ubi from losing valuable mtx money.

Glad the reviews mentioned that....
Thanks for the write-up, will wait and use the Uplay+ month when Valhalla is out.

I just want to say that people complaining about delays and slow progress are clearly not Starsector fans. It's been a year since the last update, and the community erupted in cheers as we now have... patch notes.

Looks to be a hell of a version given his past blogs on the various things that have been included.

"Walk like a robot and punch like a human!"

  • Tutorial to explain game mechanics to first time players.

WD Legion 1080p Benchmarks, no DLSS!, no RTX
And I thought a 3090 would be a good 1440p, Ultra card.
:shrugblob:
Say goodbye to my 1080 Ti. You had a good run. /s

Seriously, what the fuck? Why the optimization is so bad? Why Nvidia still hasn't release an update?

Legion is apparently getting a huge performance patch tomorrow. I'm having similar results to a 3090 at 1440p with Ultra RTX with a 3080 so there's clearly something wrong with the game.

Speaking of Ubisoft. The 'show key" button is one of the very few good things the Ubisoft launcher has that Steam should also adopt.

So today's driver release (457.09) are literally useless?

I'm getting about 50-55fps outside in Legion, it sometimes drops a bit when driving really fast. 1440p, Very High settings with shadows turned down a notch. With gsync I don't notice.

Damn, must be the hype but not being able to order a PS5 or the good Xbox stings a bit too much than necessary.

Sometimes I miss consoles. The whole buy a box, insert the disk and play.
yeah I know that usability took a nosedive with mandatory multi gigas patches. And I can‘t afford the console lifestyle anyways.

But I miss them.

Looks like they're giving away the prequel comic by Dark Horse that came with launch editions (physical only). The DLC depot is "Free on demand" which is usually free DLC. And of course there's the "Infiltrator Mode". Which is seemingly not a standalone DLC but something they're patching in. Taking it at face value, I assume it's a mode where you play an infiltrator. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I imagine the official announcement will be pretty soon. We'll also find out more about the VR stuff soon, I figure. I'm also hoping that they've made further improvements to the base game in the last 7 months of development.

Dammit, no Streets of Rage 4 sale.

Also interested in picking up Just Shapes & Beats and Hypospace outlaw as none of them ever has gone on a deeper sale.
