I. Running a 2500 8 gigs ram and a 290x. It's all max and runs fine.

I believe most people obsess about 60 fps but in reality they can't tell the difference *only if its real low*
Does this game require high fps to be enjoyable?

Just installed and discovered there's no 360 controller support :( I spent many happy hours playing the last one from the couch.

Only the steam controller is supported so far at launch, that's a first.

It's a great game. People who complain about games like this are basically screaming "I shouldn't own a PC!! I should be a console gamer only!!"

I wonder if this will have an Enemy Within type expansion. Might wait for that since my backlog is so long already. Still haven't even played Witcher 3 which I got for free.

I'm absolutely enjoying the game.

Yeah, it's different from Enemy Unknown and some of the new mechanics can get irksome...the mission timers being one. Sometimes they're not bad but other times they really limit your strategic options, especially with the new concealment mechanic. You can't really take advantage of that and creep forward setting up a real solid ambush or you blow through a chunk of the timer.

I'm in agreement with the disappointment in the optimization. For i7 + 980Ti systems to struggle for 60fps at max while they can crush other new games like Tomb Raider at the same resolution and equally demanding settings just shows something isn't quite right.

That said, I have trouble forcing myself to stop. I love the new enemies and soldier classes and abilities. The new procedural map generation keeps things fresh, the maps look and feel a lot better and varied to me than in EU. I got it at a discount, but even so I'm more than happy with the purchase.

Okay, bought and downloaded.

Playing it, it feels like the last one. But a bit choppy. Graphics are more polished. Hopefully there will be a performance patch. I like some of the new gameplay mechanics (e.g. ambushes.)

I have over 700 hours in XCOM Enemy Unknown, so... yes. Me like.

Do you like X-Com 2 more?

Not yet. Like I said, slightly twitchy. Haven't hit any bugs yet, but the levels take absurdly long to load, even off of an SSD, and there's room for performance tweaks.

Fix the performance stuff, and I will. it's just not a completely blissful experience right out of the box.

A lot of the UI animations and stuff take too long too. They're pretty, but I want to play, not wait. Speed those up about 1.5x and I'd glad.
