Holy crap, that's amazing you found it! Good job, duder!

They really ought to make a Video Game Mountain shirt; I'd buy that.

The entire game feels like it's running between 20-25 frames for me. VERY rarely does it feel like it's hitting 30. When you're in Hunter's Dream, there are times where it feels like it hits 30, but will then dip back down. Since the game came out I've felt like I'm the only one who has been having framerate issues with the game, but I guess I'm not.

It's definitely not running at 30, that much seems clear. But I do think the 20 frames you mention are scarce. Very specific instances and only for a second. There certainly is no Blighttown in this game as far as I can tell.

No, you're certainly right. It definitely feels as if it runs at 24-26FPS for the vast majority. But it definitely does dip down to the very low 20's momentarily before jumping back up.

Really hoping that new patch comes out soon.

Loving my Whip Cane so much. It's good for all situations. Terrific range and crowd-control ability with the whip, and great close-range attacks complete with a chargeable stab with the cane!

Your library is looking good, but you need to add VI to that list. Arguably the best main-line Final Fantasy game in the series, it's a great starting point, but can also hold up just as well if you go back to it after playing the newer games in the series. The GBA version is the way to go for VI; don't grab it on iOS.

Chronological order almost never makes sense in any medium if it doesn't follow release-order because if you're going out of order, then even if you're starting at the "beginning" of the timeline, there will be things that it expects you to know from the previous games or movies or books or what have you. There will be callbacks and concepts that cannot be appreciated unless you went through them in release-order.

Games exacerbate this issue because gameplay improvements don't make sense if you're not following release order. It's going to be super rough to go from Snake Eater to Peace Walker to Phantom Pain to MGS1, MGS2, and MGS4.

So go in order of release. They were put out in that order for a reason, the gameplay improvements make sense that way as well.

I severely hope this isn't part of a Capcom market strategy to "gauge interest" in the Devil May Cry franchise. Using a re-release of a 2-year old game to gauge interest seems like exactly the sort of misguided thing Capcom would do, so I hope for the sake of a DMC5 that isn't the case.

They're not just doing that though, they're also doing a re-release of a 7-year-old game to gauge interest in a new Devil May Cry.

A re-release I am thoroughly excited to play! But I have misgivings about a DMC4 re-release selling gangbusters either...

I'd probably compare what I'm experiencing the most to the stutter that happens in Halo games when it's saving. It's only a frame or two, but it's definitely noticeable. It's kind of driving me a little crazy; it's the only blemish on this otherwise incredible game.

It's good to hear there's possibly an update for it coming though! If I wasn't so addicted to it, I'd hold off until that patch to keep playing.
