Id say League of Legends, but that hardly seems to count as its constantly updated. Tired playing some Fallout 3 but it keeps crashing. Played some New Vegas. From time to time I dig out some realty old games like Dungeon Keep 2, or Theme Hospital. Been known to play some Diablo 1-2, and Starcarft as well. But nothing I would say consistently play.

I very much doubt you will be able to keep your Windows install.

That said, I changed out my MB yesterday and was ready to go reinstalling everything, turned on the machine and the old install said a bunch of stuff about preparing devices for a couple of minutes and then worked flawlessly. Blew my freaking mind! However, I transferred every piece of hardware to the new MB, CPU included. Going from AMD to Intel, I imagine your experience will be different.

How in the fuck....Youre just talking crazy! CRAZY!

Ive warmed up to the Batmobile, but the early segments with it are painful. Much more so with my shoddy frame rate on PC. Using it for jumps/platforming, puzzles, climbing walls, is just fucking stupid. Thankfully there is much less of that past the first 20% of the game or so. Still the car is WAAY over used, and replaces too much of the on foot combat. Which also seems like they just didnt put in the time, or care they did in the past games. I really havent gotten much of a sense of excitement from any of the combat/predator rooms. Which is really sad.

I'm just gonna toss my hat into this, even if the whole thing is crazy, it's only the second time I've heard of an actual released game being taken off steam. But yeah, my i7-4770 and GTX 770 have been running the game at 30 or 60 with everything but the gameworks stuff maxed out no problems. In this very specific case though, I'm quite clearly very lucky, as I've seen the videos from much beefier machines just grinding to single digit FPS with nothing maxed at all. Something has seriously gone wrong in getting this game onto PC's.

Im running a I7-4790k 770 4GB, and the frame rate seems to be just getting worse the farther into the game I get. Im around 50% and it doesnt seem worth playing with the frame rate how it is. I get frame rate drops into the low teens, or even single digits for 3-5s. Audio skipping has gotten really bad as well. I even tried dropping everything to low, and 720p. It didnt improve at all.

Hey, a close friend of mine said that the game has a memory leak, so it might be the case that the longer you play the higher your ram usage will get and it will eventually crash.

It does seem stable for the first 5 mins or so. Game has never crashed on me though. I have 12 GB of ram, plus windows will do a 10GBpage file for additional ram if it needs it. That would be one hell of a leak for the frame rate to tank as bad as it does on my system in about 5 mins. So I would think something else is going on as well, but there prob is some kind of leak going on.

Ive tried to tough out the frame rate but its actually gotten worse about 50% into the game. It was mostly playable before that, but the FPS was pretty bad. Now It drops to single digits, low teens every 30 sec or so. Seems like people with older cards are actually having less issues. Im running a 770 4 GB. I tried turning everything to low, and 720p and it literally made no difference. I saw a guy say he was running a titan X and averaging 37 FPS with everything on.

It doesnt seem to matter what graphics options you use. I just got to one of the later islands in the game, and the frame rate got about 3x worse. I dropped everything to low, and 720p....Im running a GTX 770 4 GB, and would hit complete stand stills in the frame rate, or somewhere between 2-15 FPS for about 5-6 seconds. The game is just all over the map with the frame rate. Runs decent for 5 mins or so, then tanks, runs ok, tanks....Gets worse the longer the game runs.

I didnt think Id say it, but the Batmobile is awful. Its really ruining the game for me. Puzzle, and car platforming are just bad. Im not too far in, but the lack of combat/what little there has been is forgettable at best. I really loved the past games, but from the 3 hours I spent with this game so far its about a 6. Poor frame rate on the PC isnt helping either...

DLC is just garbage these days. I dont know why people buy season passes on anything. I cant recall the last time a DLC was worth the money. If it is not a actually expansion to the game, its just shit filler content. Even then half the time expansions dont end up being great content that makes me feel good for buying it.

Ive never had a real problem with Microsoft. People love to hate on them, but fuck...Activision has just GUTTED Bungie. Ive never seen a company fall so far in such a short time frame. I actually liked Destiny too. I felt ripped off, lied to, the story was abysmal, but it scratched that loot whore itch. I put a lot of hours into it. I quit just before the first DLC. Glad I did, I wont give them more money for piddling content. I thought maybe they could get their act together and make Destiny 2 a good game that might be worth buying. That obviously is not going to happen, and I wont be supporting the franchise.
