Good god it took me like 10 minutes to finally sign into my stupid GFWL account on their website. I had to reset my password for some reason, and then they said my phone number wasn't valid in my region. WELL HOW DO PEOPLE CALL ME MICROSOFT? HOW DO PEOPLE CALL ME?
When I tried to log into my GFWL account (also my XBL account) for Iron Brigade it wouldn't let me even though the password was 100% right (I logged into my outlook/hotmail/live/whatever account just fine). I had to reset the password to log in.
That's my little GFWL story for the latest GFWL game I've played.
Also, those screens don't look as bad as I expected them to look. They are blurry and pretty bad but honestly I expected worst. Still won't bye until it's 'fixed' though.
Sorry guys, that was my first run through Dark Souls .
Here's some more pics:
Those are both with AF/Supersampling forced through graphics card settings. Game ran smooth at 30fps when stream wasn't on. FPS drops were only occurring when I was streaming/encoding at 1080p while trying to play. First impressions are that it isn't as bad as people made it out to be. Runs well and doesn't look horrible. It's doesn't look great either, but it's playable.
I just realized that if they had made the game require Steamworks, no one could have been playing it early barring a literal leak from the developers/Valve or something. :/ For some reason I thought it was Steamworks.
True, I'll have to see tomorrow if it's the reason for the unstability.
And as for the motion sickness (I've only got motion sickness before from reading in a car) it could be because I haven't been feeling all that well today and the blurry and flickering picture just increased it.
Still, it isn't looking too good for the game, but I'll still refrain giving final judgement before I've gotten around to try it a bit more.
I've put in at least 80 hrs (probably a bit over 100, Steam counter isn't showing the real amount since it didn't work when you started it with SKSE or from the .exe before one of the patches) on Skyrim with uGrid at 9 without any crashes so far. Neither have I really had any bugs in the game so I guess I've been lucky.
I can look past most of all the problems, but crashes on a game as unforgiving as this one without save states will probably make me quit on it, I dont have that much time to play anymore, cant deal with this ;(
