Our videos of Fade to Silence

Fade to Silence has been available as an Early Access title for almost 3 months and we've been meaning to give the game some coverage ever since it came out. The problem is that it performed so badly on our GTX 1080 that we decided to wait a few patches. Alas, things haven't changed much as even our GTX 1080 Ti struggles to maintain a steady 60 fps framerate, which wouldn't be an issue if it didn't make fighting the evil creatures so cumbersome. The performance issues are not only to blame though, as the combat system is too slow and awkward for its own good in our opinion. The promise of a game mixing a Dark Souls approach to survival mechanics is quite appealing, but for now, it is not convincing enough for us to advise you to put your money down.

Feels like someone stole the Rise of the Tomb Raider engine and made another game :)!
Jokes aside, I like the environment. But combat seems a bit clunky as you mentioned.

Damn, I was looking forward to this one but it seems like the perfomance issues aren't getting anywhere close to being fixed...

This is the one with the awesome survival elements completely ruined by the nonsensical fantasy demon monsters right?

Not sure, but yes, there are demons and stuff.

  • Tinks
    Tinks personally I'm digging on the newest season of True Detective so far (2 Days ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @toelessfoot: Now that you mention it, i felt like the 1st season of Spartacus was torture porn. Amount of nudity and sex in 1 season... (2 Days ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 Last season felt like so much fan service. So convenient and rushed, unlike the early seasons. (2 Days ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth blood, tits & dragons.. what's not to like (2 Days ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @toelessfoot: Tortue porn... lol it's been so long since i've seen Season 3. Forgot how much sex there was in early seasons. (2 Days ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @toelessfoot: Everything Melmoth said is correct. I would add the first 6 seasons are more grounded in medieval politics. The final 2 seasons are grounded in it's fantasy elements. (2 Days ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @toelessfoot: more movielike. Armies battling, dragons. Just more lavish. Og you didn't like ut after 3 season you probably won't after 7. (2 Days ago)
