I went into Gotham Knights with enthusiasm and a goal to get lost in the game. I recently installed an RTX 3070ti and was looking for a new game so I could crank the graphics and put it to the test. Gotham Knights isn’t a graphical powerhouse, though it looks fine. However, it’s new and has Ray Tracing, so I was all in. Paired with my i9-9900k it all but held a locked 60fps.
For the most part it didn’t waiver but there were areas where it would dip into the 40 and 50s. Occasionally it would dip to 1fps. More on that later as it wasn’t a one-time thing. But I’m not really one to judge a game on its graphics. Let’s talk about the game itself and my experience with it. From opening scene to rolling the credits I played a lot of this game and walked away with mixed feelings on it.
The new Saint’s Row game is one that a lot of people have issues with. I’m not one of them. I’m not going to pretend it’s a better game than it is, but I don’t think that it deserves all the hate it’s been getting. And I’m going to spend the next few minutes discussing why that is. Do I expect to change anyone’s mind? No, not really but I enjoy the series, enjoyed the game and it inspired me to make a review for it, so here we are.
Driven by a being a sucker for “budget” games and a fondness for the Souls series I decided to give Thymesia a try. I knew nothing about it other than it’s a souls-like game. It’s very similar to Bloodborne which is, controversially I’m sure, one of my least favorite games in the Souls series. So will I walk away enjoying this one? Let’s see.
Sadly, this method of beating the Fire Giant has since been patched by From Software. I can only imagine the number of people that will pour hours into this game only to be stopped at the brick wall that is the Fire Giant. “Get Good Scrub” I can hear you yelling, but man this guy is a complete jerk.
