    Interactive fog, debris and rain


    I still can't believe this is a 45 GB when Skyrim is under 10 GB

    I wonder how they will manage to make a Linux port when they can't even make a proper Windows version.

    - 30 fps lock that has to be removed in the ini.
    - A lot of crashing to desktop.
    - Very unstable framerate.
    - A lot of broken textures.

    These people should be ashamed of themselves. Okay, maybe they didn't have so much time, but it would be better to delay the PC version to work out the kinks. The only reason I can think of is that WB Games expected it to go under the radar.

    "Rocksteady Games" :eek:

    obviously the "testing phase" was neglected. Any studio knows they should test their game on all kinds of hardware and drivers.
    It shouldn't have been so bad that they needed to pull the game from retail shelves. That looks bad for their name and PC gaming in general

    I don't think it was tested on any PC. It doesn't run bad on some PCs, but all of them in varying degrees. Really high end PCs with titan x and such can get away with it, but it's still the issue of being poorly optimized, and missing textures, some crashing (although it's much less frequent on really high end PCs)

    I haven't been very impressed with Warner Brother's releases recently.
    Also, they will shut down almost any mod that had Lord Of the Rings in it
