I got 30 hours and done.I can't see myself going back to this. The story just really put me off and the weapons are all boring as fuck. I also, don't know about you guys, had a lot of trouble fighting Leader type zombies, especially the big hammer welding guys without using a bunch of dumb tactics. I couldn't just navigate a decent straight up like you could in dead island. It gets really annoying especially if you're doing a escort mission.
This game had a lot of shit going for it but just failed hard at some of the basic fun aspects.
Yeah that was the most annoying part its like you could be sitting at bus stop on the other side of the city from one BOOM HAMMER SLAM WTF. Their range on the hammers just didn't make any sense. Its frustanging when you know you're way out of range and it gets you for no particular reason. I never actually found the distance to not get hit and theres no way to really get in a hit and then run away. the timing on the strikes was stupid.I finished the main game and really don't have much inclination to go back and do New Game + unless a friend buys it and wants to do co-op or something.
The hammer guys were mainly retarded because of the broken mechanics; i.e. you could get hit even if it appeared they hit something overhead and stopped their swing, you could get hit even when you were just outside of their blast radius, etc. The fights were just, sprint up, hit the guy a couple times, then dodge backwards as fast as you fucking could. Don't bother trying to sidestep or run past them because when they swing they can apparently pull a full 180 mid-swing and still hit you. Pretty stupid. Fighting them was never fun and I went out of my way most times to avoid doing it.
The larger guys that rush you were actually easier IMO because you could just sidestep their sprint and smack them in the back repeatedly until they died. They also seemed to have way less health than the hammer guys.
That they felt like a hassle instead of a challenge is definitely a problem. I don't recall how early the throwing weapons perk is but I thought it was sooner than the upgraded hammer guys showed up. It just feels odd that, in a game that is already super easy, people want it to be even easier.If you mean throwing weapons...maybe once you get the perk that allows you to throw your mains, but throwing stars/knives/whatever don't really do much against them. You'll burn through a dozen or more trying to take them down that way. As for guns...great if you want a dozen runners on you afterwards.
The problem is that fighting them is just a hassle when in a game it should be fun.
SweetFX does look a lot better, but it still doesn't seem able to remove the CA even though there is an option for it.Anybody know what mods were used here?
CA is gone, colors are more balanced. The screenshot is from 1.3 or 1.4 so I'm not even sure if it's possible anymore. SweetFX maybe? Google isn't giving me a source.
The 2nd picture looks so much better than vanilla.
edit // This mod got me closer:
I notice with VSYNC off and in window mode allows for the best performance. This game maxed out @ 1440P is perfectly playable. I average around 35-60FPS at all times. Even 35 is perfectly fine for me. This with a 2500K@4.2GHZ, 16GB ram and 290 @1000/1300Have you tried unparking the cores on your I7?
Also, alt-tabbing out and in again fixes the funky vsync behavior.
Yes!Bumping this thread for joy!
I bought this last week when it was on sale, finally. The game is really awesome! I accidentally played for 11 hours straight the other night when, oh crap, is that the sun rising? I still have to go to work today! So much better than Dead Island, I can't even describe it. It has such a good balance of making you think whether or not it's better to run or stand and fight. All the agility and combat mechanics are satisfying and fun. Running around doing missions at night is such a great experience. Game looks and runs amazingly on a Titan X at 1440p with all in-game settings maxed and view distance modified past max of 2.60 to 4.00, getting 70 FPS average while using about 5GB of VRAM.
I have not been so engrossed in a game since Dark Souls. I'm now disappointed in myself for not picking this up sooner! I actually knew I was going to be in for a treat when I heard the '80s-style horror movie music at the main menu.
Funny, I have been thinking about picking up the XBONE and/or PS4 version since I'm an achievement whore with games I really like .I beat the game on Xbox One and had a blast but am really thinking of picking it up again on PC. Maybe I should wait for the new DLC to drop.
Yeah its my curreny rig but I will only be playing @ 1080P so it might just be ok.Funny, I have been thinking about picking up the XBONE and/or PS4 version since I'm an achievement whore with games I really like .
If your sig contains your current PC, then the VRAM on the 780 might be an issue. It pushes 5GB at 2560x1440 on my Titan X with all in-game settings at their highest. FWIW the [H] review of Dying Light doesn't show any stuttering that would be associated with running at of VRAM in their FPS charts.
Since this game is fast-paced I think being able to experience it in more than the 30 FPS on consoles is more than worth it.
