Loved the first one after playing it on GamePass. I completed 100% then bought a physical copy. This one is my most anticipated game for next year.

First one was excellent except for that final boss fight. Very much looking forward to this one.

I didn't mind the final boss fight too much after I figured it out. Died a whole lot though

I had more issues with one of the sections before the finale, involving a cart.

The game's Lock-On Mechanics were driving me absolutely insane.

IGN review says that even the XSX sometimes struggles to keep up with all the rats on screen. Can't imagine why anyone would want to try to play it on a Switch. Kind of amazing they even got it running on one.

Re: A Plague Tale: Requiem

I read that even the PC version struggles with high-tier GPUs so it's got to be a CPU bottleneck of some kind. An AA studio like this likely just hasn't been able to optimize the way that much bigger studios can.

I'll be playing in 40fps on my LG C1, taking advantage of 120Hz and VRR. Seems like the best way to go for consoles.
I'm currently powering my way through the first game again before I start this one. Maybe they'll get a patch out before I start it.

Itís forcing a 10.8 GB Day 1 patch on me before I play it for the first time.

Weird. My Xbox pre-install update is a whopping 51.9 GB which kind of feels less like an update and more like a fresh install.

Re: A Plague Tale: Requiem

Just wrapped this up today. Fantastic sequel that improves on pretty much everything from the first game. The story gets crazy and I really enjoyed the side characters they added. I played it on PS5 and it ran great so updates must have fixed any launch day graphic struggles.
