I don't recall mentioning other people's money or what they do with it. However, as sated earlier, greedy fucks with their slimy "pre-order" schemes needs to stop. It's just an embarrassing money grab dreamed up by evil people.

Whether it is something AAA needs is remain to be seen and as always will be something that customers decide. Telltale games are not 50-60€.

Nothing wrong with preorders. You can choose not to buy and what other people do with their money is none of your business.

Parallel and asynchronous are not the same thing.Reply

That's true - but both allow multiple sources to be processed simultaneously. NVIDIA and AMD's architectures approach multi-threaded task submission using different techniques, which the results of MDolenc's benchmark tests seem to corroborate.

Why lock fps and resolution at all?Reply
Flappers Avatar

Resolution is locked to consoles because of hardware limitations.


On the PC, that's the supported resolution. There are not that many gamers with a rig to support that res (compared to the masses, it's a minority), but they have to lock at some point, due to scaling and rendering. It's not just about what's the max your PC can go, it's what the max the game supports it at.


The same applies to FPS on consoles, but on the PC, I am certain that there will be config files that can be edited to bring up the FPS to match 120/144hz monitors

Mobile, micro transaction infested version is actually really good. Graphics are spectacular, I miss Laura Shigihara's music from the first game though. You can play whole game and don't really need to pay anything. Sadly some of the plants, even some of the old favorites, are behind pay wall. Summing up - pretty decent sequel and one of android's best. Garden Warfare was garbage though.

It wasn't always that way. On release it felt like it was pushing the player towards purchasing power ups and unlock keys. I agree though, it's very much improved over its life and perfectly playable without succumbing to the microtransactions. Alas, they also put microtransactions into the mobile version of the original.
