Our videos of Hob

Hob was released 4 days ago and we have had time to play the game for a bit more than 3 hours. The makers of the Torchlight series have done an excellent job when creating this new action/adventure game mixing exploration, combat and platforming elements. The only problem is that, just like Forza Motorsport 7, it can run pretty terribly depending on your computer. In our experience, the game stutters pretty badly at times, with frame drops down to 30 fps, even with a GTX 1080. When everything runs smoothly, it's really a perfectly recommendable title for those who like the genre, but as it is now, we can only advise you to wait until the problems are fixed. Hopefully, it will happen before October 10, as gog.com is offering Stories: The Path of Destinies and a 3€ credit on your account if you purchase the game.

    Loakum @MrWhite: the rude awakening has to take place now, because all these anti consumer practices are currently at their alltime worse. (16 minutes ago)

    MrWhite then it should be the reviewers job to question that, and then withhold their final verdict until they play a product that representative of the consumer release. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite If developers are being disingenuous with certain "features" and holding them back or flat out deliberately omitting them from review builds (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite The way these things are getting dropped into games now, it's not an afterthought. They're there early and by design. There's no excuse. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite @droezelke: Hmm, not sure if I buy that one. Reviewers often get handed the final build. Besides, there's beta's and the like they get handed, and early access to the games. (1 Hour ago)
