Warner Bros. have withdrawn sales of Batman: Arkham Knight for PC while performance issues are addressed.
“We want to apologise to those of you who are experiencing performance issues with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC,” a statement on NeoGAF read.
“We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards.
“We greatly value our customers and know that while there are a significant amount of players who are enjoying the game on PC, we want to do whatever we can to make the experience better for PC players overall.”
Lets not bullshit here though, the game should have never been released in such a terrible state in the first place and anything WB has to say now feels hollow; a case of “We’re only sorry for being caught out trying shove this shite onto the market place and get away with it” as opposed to a genuine apology.
Apparently refund demands from customers are coming thick and fast via Steam and other sources.
The sad thing is that this whole scenario, (one that we’ve seen time and again in recent years), won’t change a damn thing as publishers and developers alike will continue to releases broken, unworkable rubbish on to the market until the bubble does finally burst and the whole of the AAA industry comes crashing down around their ears.
In all honesty though, that’s probably be a good thing. Sometimes you’ve got to burn down the forest to save the wood.
Seems like Warner Bros have ballsed up yet another PC game as Batman Arkham Knight gets 2000+ negative reviews on Steam after reports of major performance issues.
“The game will frequently pause or dip to sub 10fps on a GTX 970 when entering or approaching new areas,” Steam user Bonbons reported. Another Steam user, Drake Eadmund, added: “Much like Batman, Rocksteady didn’t commit a fatality on the PC’s performance. It’s just crippled, heaving and dragging itself along as best as it can.”
Rocksteady community manager CODA respsoned with “We’re aware that some users are reporting performance issues with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight,” .
“This is something that Rocksteady takes very seriously. We are working closely with our external PC development partner to make sure these issues get resolved as quickly as possible.”
Way to go Warner Bros. Way to go.
Apparently no review code for the PC version was sent out to the regular gaming press prior to the games launch today. Well wadda ya fucking know!
Project Cars 2 has been announced and it already has a crowdfunding campaign set up on its WMD Portal platform.
The game is set to be released on PC, PS4 & Xbox One and this time will feature “loose surface” racing with dirt, gravel, mud, and snow courses. Yep, Rally Sport is coming to PCars. Happy days.
As a fan who is still enjoying PCars and as a fan of Rally Sport in general this is great news, however asking £50 for a PC game is far too much and is something that is happen far too regularly of late, (see Witcher 3 & GTA V also). £50? Get the fuck out of here.
Thankfully the first PCars has plenty of longevity going for it so I can wait for the inevitable price drop across various websites.
Anyway, those who do pledge £50 will receive access to Project Cars 2 on PC upon its release, along with an in-game badge and wallpaper. £75 will offer backers the same, along with a soundtrack, poster, name in the credits and choice of platform. Those who pledge £10K will receive an all expense paid dinner with the head of studio Andy Tudor at a luxury hotel in London along with a “luxury weekend itinerary” including use of a Ferrari 458 Spider and some other ‘goodies’.
The full game will consist of over 200 courses across 50 locations, and over 200 cars across 40 different vehicle classes.
As you might imagine fans of Bungie’s shooter ‘Destiny’ have reacted angrily to the developers decision to ask players to stump up as much as £54 for their new expansion pack “The Taken King”.
According to Eurogamer the expansion will “launch in three different packages when it arrives this 15th September. It will be a £39.99 digital download for players who own the game and existing DLC already or a disc-based £54.99 Legendary Edition which also contains the base Destiny game and existing DLC so new players can get all of the game’s content in one package.”
Yes you read right. In order for Destiny players to get their hands on the latest content they will have to re-buy the original game and two existing add-ons.
When challenged by Eurogamer the games director, Luke Smith, (who comes off as a right arrogant tosser in the interview), responded with: “It’s about value. The player’s assessment of the value of the content.”
The full interview can be found here.
In an industry rife with new ways to to rip-off consumers at every turn this has to be the biggest piss take so far. I’m no fan of Destiny, but I can totally appreciate why those who are, are outraged.
Bungie, you are now officially Activision’s bitch.
