  1. I picked this up recently with the trilogy as the c2/3 remasters only just went up on steam the other day now the egs-exclusivity has wore off. Not that long ago I had gotten about halfway through the original version on pc before having to give up as it was ctd'ing every 20 minutes. Played fine otherwise. With the new version.....I can see why some people dislike the visual changes - personally I have no strong opinion, find it no better or worse for the most part, just different. TBH I more notice the improved performance and stability for modern systems, whole thing feels much smoother. I will say the RTX seems totally pointless though, doesnt really seem to add anything other than the odd reflection. Oh, and forcing you to stand up whenever you use the powers hotwheel (in a stealth game) is fucking dumb. But yeah, by todays standards it certainly feels a bit ideosyncratic, but you can really feel the dna between this and the modern open world shooter. That said, personally I never had any issue with the direction the sequels took in that regard and since the remasters of those are supposedly much better, I am looking forward to revisiting them. Well 2, I never actually played 3!

  3. The whole genre needs a relaunch tbh. We have at least had a 'sort-of' resurgence with a few solid releases but they almost always trend towards the arcadey, none capture the intensity of freespace, xwing, starlancer etc. Shame cuz todays tech could do wonders with them.
  4. As an aside, Saws gear is also a bit easier to understand now we've seen it built up over time. With his initial appearance in R1 I struggled a bit to spot where the respirator stuff ended and the armour began - he almost looked a bit vader-y iirc, no doubt intended. Did they ever specify what fucked him up, or are we just to assume he's been living in moldy old caves too long?
  5. Honestly I hadnt even thought of covid til now, so they obviously did a good job working around it!
