In the back part of the game now. 80%, if the menu is to be believed.

Still getting a big kick out of it. Still enjoying the car combat. Still baffled by people complaining about the Batmobile. Still overwhelmed by the options for the hand to hand combat.

One thing that bothers me are the Riddler trophies being the thing to block me getting the full ending. So far, I've got 8 out of 200,000 or whatever. Fuck! That! Some real egregious collect-a-thon padding there.

I think you just need to do the catwoman stuff for the riddler, not all his trophies for the

Had a quick glance and, no, you do need all the trophies. Got to have the game read completion 100%, and they're a part of getting that.
Bit of a buzz kill, as now I'm wondering why bother doing the rest of the Most Wanted stuff if this is just going to hold me back from the "true" ending?

I 100%ed it before doing the last mission so I activated it immediately. Kinda regret it now as there are some patter between the thugs that I've missed. But on thr flip side, I wouldn't want to get to that bit and realise I had shitloads left to do.

Hit that bit myself. The cells at GCPD are full apart from 1 inmate (The Riddler).

Fought him but he managed to go all invincible and said come back when you've got all my riddles done...

Can't be bothered now and haven't been back since. However it does mean Witcher is getting my love back.

Finished!

Well, my opinion still stands. Really damn good, Batmobile and all. Got other games to be getting on with, so I'll take a break before going back and begrudgingly mop up the bazillion Riddler trophies.

But, man, I get a kick out of the narrative flourishes in the game. You don't see many developers going full nuts, probing at the fourth wall and generally being weirdly creative with how the story can be presented. That said, about the ending:

FPS section with tight corridors, low FOV and no on screen reticle? That hit me right in the motion sickness. :(

List of the changes coming in the interim patch due in the next few weeks.

-Reduced frame rate hitches
-Optimized system memory and VRAM usage
-Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers)
-Min Spec AMD GPU is once again the Radeon HD 7870 2GB
-Added the ability to change settings for Max FPS to 30/60/90
-Added toggles for Motion Blur, Chromatic Aberration, and Film Grain
-Added a "High" Texture Resolution value
-Added Texture Filtering option
-Added an Adaptive V-Sync option (NVIDIA only)
-Added VRAM Usage Meter
-Added Mouse Sensitivity Slider & Mouse Smoothing Option
-Fixed low resolution texture bugs
-Fixed hitches when running on mechanical hard drives (HDD)


It seem to address some of the more egregious issue. I wonder if it will be enough to see it go back on sale.

Is it fixed now or are you just buying it as it's cheap and it might get fixed at some point?

They sound serious about fixing it and the people I know that have it haven't had much trouble other than some performance hitches so I think it'll be worth 12quid. I'll wait till after I'm done with MGS

Just 100 percented the little blighter, so even with the hitches and glitches it was a fun game. The city is so finely crafted. It looks lovingly made.
The batmobile is pants but a nice diversion.
Hopefully with the patch it all just be that little bit better.

Did you receive this key then? Tempted to buy it now myself - Can't see it being that cheap once it gets fixed and others start selling it again.

A beta version of the upcoming patch accidentally went live on Steam...

And then was taken down as something was not quite right with some texture shizzle.
Can't wait to retry it with this patch even though I've 100% it :)
