Having a blast with this game. So, since i went the route of getting EA Play for the month to play, and the game peaked my sons interest, i have been streaming it to my living room TV for my son to watch from the couch. I try to play when its darker out and it has been a fun experience so far. (only playing when he can watch). I dont wear a pair of headphones this way but my soundbar does a nice job at scaring us a bit when something just pops out or up behind me.
I'd say the stasis ability is my favorite ability when dealing with necromorphs coming from behind and in front, just throw that on them then i start stomping, but i do admit it is kind of annoying that i just get attacked in the back as soon as i see one from the front, but maybe thats on purpose? Wouldnt you as an alien race try to take someone down like that?
It runs pretty smoothly for me too, albeit being on the EA launcher, playing at 1440p with a 3070ti 12700k,DLSS on/Quality @ Ultra Settings im getting anywhere from 70-80 to 110-120. There are lag spikes here and there but nothing for me to complain about.
My biggest gripe so far is that, for some reason, my PS5 controller will not work at all. I dont know if its becasue im using the EA version and not the Steam one? I have not had an issue at all with a game just completely not recognizing a controller so im assuming its a launcher thing.
