As such, I generally resort to changing the settings to enable enhanced sync at the GPU level in the profile for each game as opposed to in the game itself. That generally fixes the problem, but I was still getting some mild screen-tearing this way with FC5. I turned the v-sync on in-game and voila, graphics were smooth on ultra and no noticeable slowdown, so I'm wondering if Ubisoft did something with their coding that overrides the GPU settings or something.
To me what separated this from other FC games was that while it's still very open world it wasn't as drawn out of a game as you could finish it relatively quickly unlike past games that seemed to last forever and wear out their welcome.

Yeah, even the side quests have much more variety than past FC games. I couldn't even get more than an hour into Primal because of how repetitive it was.

No hardware, just buy the latest game
I have doubts that even with great internet that I won't notice any lag or image issues when playing. I think this will be a good enough for the casual gamer (with good internet), but I doubt I'm passing on the next generation of consoles because of it.

The DMC reboot a few years back was better but DMC 5 was a nice little game. Multiple playable characters so that’s cool. Kept me occcupied til Sekiro unlocks here in a few hours.

Maybe not the next but at some point they stop making the hardware IMO...at least as we know it.

I nabbed a copy of Wolfenstein two pack (New Order/Old Blood) to play before Wolfenstein 2 and man... it's absolutely as described!

It feels a little like Bioshock mixed in with Kill Bill so far. I only played a few hours though, but man has it been quite fun.

EDIT: I think I'd describe the game sorta like how honest trailers described Pacific Rim.

So dumb!
So awesome!
