Since Red Dead Redemption 2's release on PC a few weeks ago, Rockstar has been working diligently to improve upon the game's performance and stability, especially when it comes to a stuttering issue affecting certain Nvidia GPUs and four- and six-core CPUs. Those who have managed to get it running smoothly have noticed another problem, however: the passage of time is seemingly tied to your framerate.Those who played Dark Souls 2 on PC may be familiar with this specific bug. From Software's PC port ran at 60fps compared to the console version's 30fps, which caused weapon durability to degrade twice as fast.

By Robert Workman - October 17, 2018 08:45 pm EDT Share 0 Comments 0 Capcom has been on a roll as of late when it comes to rejuvenating long-lost franchises. Devil May Cry is getting a new sequel this March; Resident Evil 2 has a stunning looking remake coming our way; and even Onimusha is getting the remake treatment, even on Nintendo Switch.

But as of late, the series has been dormant, and it doesn’t deserve to be. So, with Halloween right around the corner, let’s talk about why Ghosts ‘n Goblins deserves to be on the comeback trail, and how Capcom can do it. Slide 1 of 4It’s Literally the Dark … [Read more...] about ‘Ghosts ‘n Goblins’ Needs To Come Back, and Here’s Why
Halley Gross is a co-writer on The Last of Us 2, and the sort of person that's so effortlessly cool that you feel a sudden urge to formally invite them to be your new best friend. Before joining Naughty Dog for this dark tale of vengeance, Gross worked on prestige shows like Westworld, and brings a whole new perspective to the art of crafting a game narrative. For her, the story isn't just about monsters, but the internal scars that Ellie has to either try and heal or learn to live with. "Ultimately, this is a story about the cycle of violence, right? But beyond that, it's a conversation about the effects systemic trauma can have on your soul," she tells me. "And so to do that, obviously Ellie experiences this deep trauma, it has an impact on her that's going to affect how she engages with the world. That's going to affect her tone as we sort of descend through that. That being said, Ellie is driven by love. It's love that sends her on this mission for justice. It's love that she … [Read more...] about The Last of Us 2 is “a story about the cycle of violence”, says co-writer Halley Gross
